I disagree, especially about accepting people for who they are.
I'm gonna use the wrong name here, but I got sick and tired of my family excising my brother, saying "Oh, that's just George..."
Most things people do are excusable, some things aren't.
My brother is a very bad guy and has done very bad things to innocent people. I CANNOT and will not EVER forgive him and for my family to excuse it way because "that's just him" is utter bullshit.
In my world, blood is not thicker than water.
It would be a great benefit for you to study determinism as it applies to the human condition. I doubt you will, because it stands in conflict with most conceptualizations of "free will". You may also be too entrenched in dichotomous thinking to get very far.

No you wouldn't. Plus , you're not going to get away with this excuse when you face God. He said to believe on faith, not by sight , and mentally acute and bright people like us Christians can believe on faith. We are strong enough to rely on faith and not by sight.
Only weak, spineless cowards like you need evidence.
But it is obvious, you know there is a God,,,,,you just want to sin and rebel against God because you trust your Liar called Satan and you somehow think you can get away with it without suffering the consequences.
Your weak willed attempt to divert from this reality is not going to work....and I know you know you are lying to yourself, you silly and desperate brainless atheist.
To believe anything based on faith is to be gullible, faith equals gullibility, faith is NOT a pathway to the truth.

It is the mentally acute and intelligent person that remains skeptical of a claim, the person who does the research to find alternative answers, the person who expects hard evidence before believing.

It is the weak and or lazy person who accepts anything with support, to weak to question and to lazy to educate themselves. I do pity you.

How does it stay balanced with foreign biological products inserted into it?

How long does it take to shake a man out, figuratively speaking? Two men out. Three?

Have you ever even done that?

That's because you are a weak and miserable coward. We have your nasty hateful blasphemy to prove you know you are in doubt.
Do you have a point, or do you just enjoy spouting fire and brimstone?

Do you know that the God you worship murders innocent little babies and destroys fetuses? Just thought you should know. I'll be glad to share the details of this murdering psychopath anytime your ready. Just let me know.

Well you're the moron saying a homosexual act requires consenting adults. Those are your words. Own them.
When a male rapes a male, that's a homosexual act.
When a male rapes a female, that's a heterosexual act.
That doesn't mean neither hetero- or homosexuality are bad things.
Rape is.
If equal relevancy was given to the gender distinction, I would have less of a problem with it.

Ideally, people wouldn't need to add those words to the framing of the crime. We're going to know the gender of the rapist and the victim. We don't need to put a label on what is obvious, that has the potential to imply things that it shouldn't.

When a man rapes a man it's a gd deviant sexual crime, now grant you the fact a homosexual man can rape another man, but it isn't a homosexual act. It is a criminal act by a homosexual.
Fine. I'll reword it.

It's a deviant homosexual crime.

Just like a man raping aeon an is a deviant heterosexual crime.
Homosexuality
Homosexuality (from Ancient Greek &#8001;&#956;&#972 ;&#962;, meaning "same", and Latin sexus, meaning "sex") is romantic attraction, sexual attraction or sexual behavior between members of the same sex or gender. As an orientation, homosexuality refers to "an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectionate, or romantic attractions" primarily or exclusively to people of the same sex
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexuality
I'm sure you can't puzzle your way through it, but if a homo rapes you, you are a victim not a participant.
There ya go, you finally got it.

"sexual behavior between members of the same sex"

I think you're confused. I think you're equating homosexuality with crime or you believe I'm saying that.

You're the one that posted a common anti-gay argument, that people "choose" to be gay because a baby can't have sex.
I was just pointing out the source of what you were saying. Sorry if it came out differently.
Do you want to reconsider that argument now that you know its source? And the fact that it is a stupid argument?
No, I made an analogy.

Babies aren't born with a sexual identity, preferring potato chips over French fries or with a craving for a good book.

It's all learned, IMO.

If you have evidence of the elusive gay gene, by all means present it.

You're nuts if you think those Christian evangelicals are instructing those people to be promiscuous.

Absolutely nuts.

Yea. Just went through this with one of my wife's brother until he drank himself to death. No easy answers and in this case the so called help he got from everyone might have kept him off the streets but didn't do much else. At one point my wife thought he might come here and I told her that was never going to happen. I can see both sides of this but in the end will do what I have to protect my own home and well-being.
Yup. You're damned right.

My immediate family comes before my extended family.

<quoted text>The burden of proof ALWAYS rest with the person making a claim,an assertion, I'm doing neither. Lack of belief is absolutely the default position, you have it to an extent, thats why you doing believe in fairies, trolls, superman, Santa, the easter Bunny, the tooth fairy, the fish Gods from Neptune, Pixie dust, and any one of a thousand other Gods that people worship.
The default position is one that denies anything for which no evidence exists. You certainly have things that you don't believe, why don't you believe them, or do you simply believe anything?
Atheism is the default position because we reject the claim, the assertion, that a God exists.
Uh-huh.

So what if there's a smidgeon of evidence? A scrap? What if there's an iota, mite, trace, wee bit, pinch, fragment or dash of evidence?

What then?

No further argument is necessary unless you take an opposing position. I don't need to prove to you what you already believe.
If you did take the opposing position, I would personally feel confident enough that my position is obvious, and that anyone who disagrees would be unswayed by argument.
Oh.

Ok.

I say that Christianity is the default position.

No further argument is necessary.

I can study determinism but I can't believe it.

I don't believe in predestination.

I believe we all have free will and we are all responsible for our actions.
