Glad you know many Christians ... that means there is hope for you yet! Sorry about the cow pastures, but, when Osama drove through Kansas last summer, all those wheat fields were full of dead wheat. It looked like cow pastures. Sorry to bust your delusional bubble, Mr. Cynical Person ... but, God does so govern the universe. Damn good thing too! Now, run along and turn your TV on, as there are some very good programs on the religious channels that might turn your cynical views into something positive for yourself. Have a nice evening ... ya hear!?

I SEE YOU... keep trying girl ... if you hook up with The Clown and his hairy coconuts, you probably will get happy. You melancholy lost souls keep trolling for happiness. We Believers of God keep telling you where you can find happiness ... but, you're too stubborn to listen. Anyway, ya'll have a nice evening ... ya hear!?

I think you may be the one that is melancholy and stubborn though...I just said that there are many happy atheists that you could talk to if you really wanted to lol. Are you too stubborn to read?? I'm a happy girl :) You believers of God can be happy too...nothin wrong with that...no sir. Ya'll have a nice evening too...ya hear!?:D

My apologies, ISY ... yours truly, that would be moi, short changed you! You seem to be somewhat of a happy camper, and you have a sense of humor, which is a very good trait. Yes, the Great Osama has to admit, he is very stubborn, but, unhappy he is not! Melancholy? No, at least not since he had to leave Canada and a girlfriend up there. But, each day brings hope, and a new challenge to conquer. Osama, would have to say that it was nice talking with you, ISY ... somewhat of a joyful conversation! Have a great day now ... ya hear!?

Yours truly,
Osama the Happy (Your Gateway to Sunshine, Flower Filled Meadows, and, and, and... The Yellow Brick Road)

P.S.- My Identical twin brother, Art Deco Man should be appearing on this thread soon ... he is the Stargate to Planet Nimrod, in a galaxy ... far, far, away!)

Finding you trolls does not take effort darlin. However you can be certain that any kind of contact with "you" in particular is most assuredly pointless.

You just **proved** beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you are one of the regular Genuine Christhole™ trolls.

A new comer would not know me at all-- but a veteran of Topix? Who's been banned, so has to create yet **another** sock to spew the hate?

Such a hateful person (you) would know I've been around a long time.

Thanks for **proving** you are just another christhole-hater.

It's the same azzhole, who used to post under "Bob Loplaha" among other banned IDs.

It's what these Genuine Christhole™ trolls do-- change their socks, but spew the same band of hate as always.

What else from a hate-cult?(Genuine Christianity™)

When Educated Tw*t gets insulted his ego is hurt, he expresses it as laughter and goes Bwaahahahah to cover his a$$, when deep down, his feeble ego was bruised.

You are the same.

There's just one of you with 5 handles, and all your usernames are getting a slaughtering in this forum!!!

We will be seeing you finding lots of things funny in the future.

What is worse?

Even if they **were** completely separate people?(highly doubtful)

Then the fact that they seem to be identical robots?

THAT?

Is even more sad than if they are socks...!

Not as long as people of Faith keep trying to make their ugly religious bigotry into **laws** that everyone must obey, we cannot.

The oppression of women and women's bodies.

The oppression of minorities.

The teaching of lies in place of actual, quality science.

To name but a few reasons why we cannot.
