Surveys and statistics show that non-belief is on the rise.

That is a fact, it can only be attributed to the actions of Fundamentalist's. They are driving people away from religion. Far better than any ad campain that we could run.

contacting someones pastor over someones conduct who claims to be a Christian and they lie about people is NOT stalking. I have gone to IAS before and asked to go private with this and she refuses so the next step in the Bible says to take 2 with you and go before the church so i am following BIBLICAL guidelines to handle a dispute between two believers see Matthew 18. What will contacting my vet be for? to lie to my vet? You do not know your Bible it seems.

Good morning and it is ALWAYS great to see you. I am excited about meeting you and the wife this summer. Let me know the dates when you know. By the way I did report the nic not really to the mods for lying about you and saying you solicited money when in fact she is the one playing the game and doing it and then saying you did it.

Have a good day

I have had this Mocking done to me every day in my life. I am a disabled Vietnam Vet, I fought for freedom for this country. And I come home to a country that didn't care for there Vietnam Vet's at that time. And right now Vet's are not getting the respect that they earn, from people in this country. I was hurt real bad in Vietnam, some time I can't think like other people it takes me awhile but I can get the job done. The only thing I got left is my job as a Pastor and the work I do over the P/C!
Now days some people are out for number one there self and who cares about others. It is very shameful to live in a country were people treat the disable people like dirt. We do have people out there who does care, and that comes only to a hand full, praise God for them. My Grandpa always told me if you don't have something nice to say about a person then keep your mouth shut to them. Ezekiel 33:8,9.....
Having lived through the Vietnam era myself I think I understand the difficulties a returning vet faced. The support services for those who had been through and witnessed the horrifying violence that men are capable of perpetrating against their fellow men were woefully inadequate. Some turned to drugs and alcohol, some turned to religion and some did all of the above.

It seems to me that those that had understanding family (especially WWII vets) and friends were the lucky ones. Of course we all know the side effects of drugs and alcohol and there aren’t too many of those that chose that cure left. Religion didn’t have the same side effects as drigs and alcohol but it did produce side effects in many. Many became self-righteous and intolerant toward beliefs other than those that helped them through their difficulties as if any belief different than theirs was threat to the recovery they had found.

Others, the lucky ones, seemed to come to an understanding of the depths to which human behavior toward other human beings can sink because of perceived differences in nationality, politics or beliefs or skin color (or whatever) and developed an aversion to intolerance of any kind. They learned to accept the world as it is.

I hope that someday your healing is complete and you can accept beliefs that disagree with yours without feeling threatened.

Stalking would be me following her from forum to forum, contacting her by mail, e-mail and telephone. Like you said before , you do not know the situation, dam I am fed up with you stupid people who post anal crap like you do. Go right ahead and get chummy with Native. Don;t came a whinning later when she is contacting your church, calling your internet provider, your mayor, the local cops, and printing boxes full of your posts. Go ahead share your info with her. LOL
Why? Were you dumb enough?

<quoted text>Hi my dear Sister again its so nice to hear from you. If anyone on here think I am ask for money they are "WRONG" and that is just pure FACT. Some of these people on here need to grow up and act like real men/women. I am not asking for sympathy from anyone, I am only making a statement. Because I see at first hand how Vet's is treated in this country. When I and some of my friends come home from the war we was treated like dirt. And today I see people who had no respect for God/Bible, Satan have got those people blind from the real truth. If only they can see what is coming right at the USA, we are going to have a bunch of sorry people! You my dear lady are very bless, your husband is a very lucky man to have you as his wife. I pray for more people like you to come to these threads because you are a very Knowledge lady!!
Stop lying, your opening post WAS clearly asking for sympathy. All because you cannot take the backlash from all those whom you lie about and insult.

And troll Spaci insults and mocks people, which you claim shows she's a demon. So why are you being friendly with a demon?

You don't actually think they will boast about being atheist, do you? They aren't quite that brave yet but the way it is going, with some members coming out of the closet about being gay, the atheists won't be far behind.
I believe Obama is close to being an atheist. Or at least he has the same ridiculous arguments all gays have. "Leviicus also says it's a sin to eat shrimp."
I believe we have a Muslim in the White House and some of the American ppl are too blind to see it. The liberals and atheist just don't care.......just as long as we have a president that is Anti-Christian in leadership.

Your god tells you to answer some of the comments?

What does his voice sound like?

Is it rich and resonant like Richard Burton or perhaps it's like Jerry Lewis on helium?

I'm pretty certain that "God's" voice and ThePreacherman01's sound exactly the same.

Thanks for your service in the Vietnam conflict Preacherman01. I was in the army during that conflict as well.

With that said, you are wrong about "just a handful of people in this country care for the disabled of all kinds. I believe your religion has blocked that out of your mind because it says it is not true.

Have you ever heard of the special Olympics to name just one group? Just because they don't do it in the name of religion doesn't eliminate them or there caring. Religion is responsible for more violence in this world than anything else, and condemns to hell non-believers that truly care and help those in need.

You wouldn't be saying that if you or one of your children were gay. How about gay animals, were they born gay or did the devil make them do it?

That was just plain wrong! The monkeys, our cousins, at the end of the video were swapping from missionary to doggie style. The Christians will say the devil caused the male monkey to bend over and grind on the other male monkeys to confuse them! LOL I'm not confused, it makes perfect sense, satan isn't real and the monkeys were born that way.
