<quoted text>The lesson is: You can't be honest around certain Topix Atheists! Namely you and Ben.

You twist it around and make it something that wasn't posted.

We should be free to explain every detail of our lives, but you crazy asses will stalk and hunt us down.

Like y'all did to YD.

That's a shame.
I don't agree.

Even when I was a christian, it was always christians who used my personal experiences, which I don't mind sharing, as fodder for the thread.

If I gave a damn, I wouldn't post them.

It still is the christians here who lack decency and adore gossip. There are one or maybe even two exceptions.

<quoted text>According to what system of morality is sex outside of marriage immoral?
Well it’s like this Doctor. When you are married to someone the marriage becomes a co-ownership. You own your spouse and your spouse owns you. So when someone has an affair with a married spouse. They are handling something that doesn’t belong to them.

It’s like someone taking the keys to your car for the weekend and don‘t ask. It’s not theirs to take or borrow. It belongs to someone else. We are not just talking adultery but theft, stealing. Then most of these event are covered up in lies.

But how can we explain morality to an Atheist? After all the leader in North Korea an avid Atheist. Feed his uncle to the dogs.

Wow, you really missed Hiding's point entirely...didn't you?

Hiding did not say that HIV infection is the fault of the poor. What she said is that HIV is the fault of the social inequalities forced on the poor.

Sure, sure.
Well, this is partially right. Gee, you get 1/2 point for this one.

Certainly, not all rich people are striving to keep the poor poor. OTOH, there are just as certainly some rich people that are.

Then tell me again how HIV is spread due to a lack of resources.
Gee...Hiding says that most HIV infected are poor. You say: Not so. I can name one rich person infected.

Wow...so logical...NOT.

Someone told me a long time ago blowguns were good. They sit and worry the darts out and leave no gaping wounds.

I don't have the breath for those long shots.

The dogs aren't going to die, Eagle. They will just not entertain any ideas of entering my yard again.

I blame those little ones for leading that shepherd astray. I know where it lives and that is the first I have seen it here. The little ones have been in the yard before. The cats can handle them if push comes to shove.

Still can't figure how they get in.

They should stay home and watch TV and out of my yard.

You have told us, many times, that you are "unoffendable."

Yet it's clear you have taken offense lately.

Almost to meltdown level in fact.

At this point, why not take a Topix break, pull yourself together, attend to the important things in your life, possibly return later, refreshed and with less of a burden?

Now don't be offended, it's just a suggestion.

Kim-Jong Un is an Atheist Doctor. And he fed his Uncle to the dogs. It's well known for some time about the Human Rights Violations in North Korea. And that good ole boy fellow Atheist of yours likes to starve his people while his fat *ss eats steak every evening.
Yeah, he's one of yours so stop trying to say he something else, he's Atheist. Don't it make you proud?
Your wrong once again, he, like most in this country are Juche, I thought i already explained that to you.

Do you consider Buddhists to be Atheists? How about the Jainist religion, or Hinduism, Sikhism, Taosism? Kim-Jong Un worships his predecessor Kim II-Sung as a God, as do most in North Korea.

Being guilty of being an uncaring prick does not make him an Atheist, just an evil little prick. Yo uwould love to hang Atheism on this evil little prick, but because he DOES have a belief, a defined religion, you can't. Oh I guess you can, but you're flying your dishonestly and appeal to ignorance flag really high. His religion is Juche, just like 24 million of his followers. You lose once again Pops, but keep trying, its fun to watch you wiggle in the wind!!!!!

<quoted text>HIV is spread in poor and underdeveloped countries because religions like the Catholic religion, forbids the use of condoms. It also promotes the animal breeding mindset among to poorly educated and poverty stricken populous, combine the two and you have the rampart spread of HIV. The Catholic Church, besides being a criminal organization, shares a great part of the blame for the stance on contraceptives.
It is spread because of sexual opportunism and the long time before it shows up.

It takes self discipline and/or religious discipline to limit those opportunities.

People prefer riding bareback, and opportunism can catch everyone unprepared.

They wouldn't use the condoms, anyhow. They would use them for some other purpose, like storing drugs or keeping sand out of a rifle barrel.

BTW, condoms weren't always around. Man made attempts to limit man made mistakes. Your trying to blame the Catholic Church for that spread is really a desperate attempt to discredit religion.

Pay attention old dude, the question was Why is sex OUTSIDE of marriage immoral. Not talking about being married and have sex with someone else I'm talking about someone NOT married having sex.

You're a liar, Kim-Jong Un is NOT an Atheists avid or otherwise. I have shown you documentation of the Juche religion and its beliefs, I now challenge you to produce documentation that shows Kim-Jung Un to be a "avid" Atheist.

And how can you explain morality to a Catholic. It certainly didn't work for John Wayne Gacy who murder 33 young boys, he was in fact a CATHOLIC.

I'll be waiting for your evidence that Kim is an Atheist.
