There goes ALL your justification for being against homosexuals, then....!

Too bad for you-- that makes your religion 100% hypocrisy.

23 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, 1 kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. 24 Therefore g the law was our 2 tutor to bring us to Christ, h that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.

AndRomans 6:14
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
There are several other verses which state the laws of the Old testement are no longer valid.
thank you!!!

Uh, I dont know what you mean by that. Although its true people can change their name, they cannot change their Location ,even if Topix does just put you in the general area. For example Im from Loma Linda even if Topix say that is part of Los Angeles while From Overseas says he from Austin Texas.
If you think some body has two ID's always check where Topix says they are posting from.

My understanding is the location is what ever portal Topix uses to receive your message. My location is Loma Linda but Topix will give my location as Either Los Angelese or at times Bell. And Although I have been at times moved around Southern California, I have never been moved farther then Oxnard. My guess would be you are in Western Pennslyvania or a near by State. Might even be as far as Tennessee depending on how the network is set up in the Mountians.
Perhaps there a way to change your location elsewhere but I dont know of it.

That is very sick, but christians don't read their bibles and don't realize how warped their religion is.
you are taking passages out of context and twisting them yourself. Tell me please where the bible says "thou shalt rape?"--it doesn't. But then you would know that had you ever bothered to open it and read it. Good Luck. Lol

A message from God!
The young lady, at the age of 16, damned herself to hell by not following God's law and for killing herself. Her rapist, on the other hand, will still have his shot at heaven! He followed God's laws and married his rape victim!
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/03/15/suici ...
Deuteronomy 22:28-29
If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.
So, to recap: Rapist = Goes to heaven Rape Victim = Goes to Hell.
This should be one of those, "This is your brain on drugs" type warning, but I am sure that all christians will close their eyes and pretend that their god never said:
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)
If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.
So, tell me this? Which is it? You don't believe God exists, or you simply hate what He says?
The answer is apparent. You are angered by His words (which you have not quite done justice at interpreting anyway)therefore, you clearly believe that He IS and that His word lives. So, you should not call yourself an Atheist, you are simply a God hater.

The problem with your post is the fact that the Bible is not the word of God. It's the word of bronze age goatherders.

God hater? Please explain to everyone here how one hates something they don't believe in. Do you hate invisible pink unicorns?

No. But then again, I don't waste time trying to translate unicorn communications in order to prove they do not exist. I just go on about my life with actually very little consideration at all of invisible pink unicorns.

Well, it's hard to go about daily life without consideration of god believers. Especially when they are attempting to control the life of everyone in this country.

I don't know what country you are in. But, I don't see any truth to that at all. In fact what I see is religious freedoms being infringed upon like never before. No group is as vulnerable to attack as Christians in this society.

How is that, It seems anything short of total domination is considered an infringement of thier rights by Fundies and they begin squawking! It also seems since they have no more hold on the Culture than anyone else (can you say Secular) thier Ass stays raw. No group has been more repressive than Christians in the past. Most have next to no respect for the Rights or Beliefs of Others, and seek to justify thier agenda with lies hysteria and whining like your post. Brace up if thier is any threat to Anyone's right to practice thier beliefs there are existing laws in place to protect you as long as you don't Commit crimes or infringe on the rights of others to practice Thiers. Live an let live get used to it. FYI some folks didn't have freedoms because of Christians opposition till recently, So excuse Me if I Don't ascribe to a standard off the shelf Right Wing tirade
