It only has a 15 gallon tank. I'm sure you can out run me.

If you get stuck, I can pull you out though. I have a big chain behind the seat next to my scarf.

Homosexuality is a sin. The Bible calls it an abomination. And itís in the Bible my friend. The Word of God stands against it. We Christians are not in the business of promoting sin as if itís perfectly alright with God. John the Baptist was beheaded because he told the King he could not marry his brothers wife.
What about the other sins? Homosexuality comes up often today because the Homosexuals in our society want to redefine marriage. Something I personally stand against. No one is trying to redefine drunkenness or theft.
ďBut truthfully I don't like how it makes Christians look when people go around saying God is sending natural disasters because of gay marriage. There is nothing biblical to suggest it.Ē
Do you remember the story of Sodom and Gomorrah? These cities were destroyed by God because of their unrighteousness. So yes it is in the Bible and the word ďSodomy,Ē is a direct derivative from the city of Sodom.
My rant was about California. Just connect the dots. Drought, enormous fires, earthquakes, devastated economics for State Government, prone to hurricanes, massive mudslides. It also happens to be a liberal State with Gay Marriage made legal.
The situation in California is not ever going to turn around. Unless the people of California turn away from their unrighteousness. You donít have to take my word for it. Just keep an eye on California for the next three years and see for yourself.
You are right. My thinking is you could say most of this of the nation sadly. When you have a hero like Chris Kyle give all for the nation and not a word from the President. But let a homosexual ball player that has done nothing get a nod from the leader and say he has "courage". This is what I mean about perverting things. Don't be shocked if the entire nation soon sees the wrath of God.

<quoted text> When it comes to contractual vows, Catcher contributes by enforcing them. Whether it includes but is not limited to bankrupting someone or ruins their marriage or disrupts or shuts down businesses or tosses them in poverty or cause towns to take out long term bonds raising taxes or destroys reputations etc etc etc is of no consequence. Not that theres anything wrong with that if its legal and can enrich you. Same with getting a hardened criminal off on a technicality or by good polemics.

It pays for flashy cars and gym memberships to keep that aging body looking trim and macho.

Never know when he might run into a young boy walking down a street shirtless that needs some expert guidance in life and someone to look up to.

Catcher has the youth of America, and maybe other places, as his main interest. What a guy.

Hey, it takes money to be such a sport, don't you know? You have to bend your morality a bit to enlighten and help young men. Keeps them out of the YMCA.

It might be but he is still a bigot. That's really my only issue with the guy. But he is at this point in time in the mainstream. bigotry towards Christians, toward people on the right is not only fine you can witness it from the President on down.

Nobody is going to see the wrath of your god.

It's not going to happen, Chris.

Get a grip, dude. The god that you believe in does not exist.

Earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, Oprah, tornadoes are not acts of a god.

Homosexual people are getting married !!!!

Pat Robertson looks like a caricature of a Muppet !!!

In reference to your brothers marriage. Ministers are human and do fall into affairs. Itís wrong and rooted in selfishness. We seen an example of this in King Davidís affair. Ministers are not above being tempted and giving into temptations.
God can and does forgive but thereís often a price paid for such action. Do we shoot our wounded or work on healing their brokenness? I say let us work on healing the wounded and restoration.
I realize many of our topix Atheist are homosexuals. God can forgive and heal your heart. He was the first cardiologist. He understands the heart and soul of mankind. Heís willing to do it for you if you would give him a chance.
