Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

<quoted text> No it is not, it is a criminal act, a homosexual or heterosexual act requires a mutual attraction. This is where you fail to see that rape is not defined within the bounds of normal sexuality. To define pedophilia within the criteria of homosexual or heterosexual acts lays partial blame on the victim. It's possible it could be defined this way , if a child consented to it, but even that fails because it's illegal and a child cannot legally consent to having sexual relations ..until whatever state they are in defines them of legal consenting age to do so.
A homosexual act requires two legally consenting homosexuals, and the same with a heterosexual act. I know you can't wrap your head around these simple concepts, but in law and in practice a person who cannot legally consent to such acts is violated , even if they say they want it and the one of legal age is guilty of a criminal sex act. For all intent the minor is still innocent and not of consenting age to perform such acts.
You're a little loonier than usual.

What you're saying is that there's no homosexual teenagers. Anywhere.

Because "A homosexual act requires two legally consenting homosexuals".

I don't think the LGBT community would like you saying that....

You are into controlling them. And probably everyone else.
I knew exactly what I was doing when I compared the mouth and vagina. Same type tissues.
"The vagina consists of three layers of tissue. The mucosa is the layer on the surface that can be touched. It consists of mucous membranes and is a surface similar to the lining of the mouth.
Unlike the smooth surface of the mouth lining, the vagina contains folds or wrinkles."

In case you didn't know.
Do you gargle? Why not clean out behind those other lips some times? Get that excess lube out of there.
Dammit, man.

Leave it to science to ruin a good memory.

"mucous"?

C'mon!!

You omitted facts from the story. "She named the baby boy, who weighed 7.7lbs, Francesco – apparently in tribute to Pope Francis." This omission on your part could change the author's perceived intent, and force the reader to obtain the full story on his/her own. Her naming of the baby after the Pope suggests her continued devotion to her faith. Why would you attempt to deprive the reader in such a way?
LOL. Are you trying to punish me for having a contrary opinion? No problema.

Barton's tactic has sent my untrustworthy meter into the red zone. Many other people feel the same way, many of whom I trust and respect. And I have not been impressed with the ethics of Christian apologists.

Uh...no they can't. That is what the Federal anti-discrimination laws are all about. Otherwise, we would still have all-white restaurants in the deep South.

A business is not allowed to say "no blacks allowed".

You should ask yourself, "Where does this hatred within me originate?" If you are honest with yourself, you might gain some enlightenment.

Or are you just a bigoted b*st*rd with no tolerance or empathy and want to stay that way?

There is more than one motivator.
Sex is not the principle motivator, in most cases of rape. It's not the principle motivator for serial rapists.
What's the difference between someone who pays for sex, and a rapist?
That difference, whatever it is, is the principle motivator. It's the thing that turns them into a rapist. Remove it, and there is no rapist. If you just remove their sex drive, they'll probably still kidnap people and do other stuff to them to exert control over them.
Take away the sex drive, there is no rape. Kidnapping is quite different.

Controversial because they disagree with academia.

<quoted text> Businesses do not have to serve. You ignore gay activists targeted Christian businesses expecting conflict and legal action in the form of lawsuits which were costly to the businesses. This is in direct response to those type of harassment type issues. Gays can go to businesses which will cater to their desires. Instead they choose to target Christian businesses. This is an issue of religious liberty and business rights.
This was the same tactic used by blacks in the civil rights struggle in the '60s. And it worked. And the only people that think it was a bad thing are bigoted white supremacists.

They have been relegated to trash bin of history.

Your type will be also.

As for "liberty". Well, it is said your freedom ends where another's nose begins. In other words, your freedom does not allow you to harm others. And the discrimination you propose harms others. No bones about it.

So does heterosexual behavior. Or haven't you heard of STDs (including AIDS) are spread by straight sex?

Are you claiming that all behavior is not genetic? If so, you are wrong.

And even if homosexuality is not genetic, it is almost certainly developmental. In other words, yes, they are born gay.

I don't believe in anything without supporting evidence. Thats why Atheism is the default position, show me reliable evidence and I'll have no problem believing in any God. Thats what skeptics do, they reserve a belief in anything until it can be proven. I have good solid verifiable evidence for everything I believe in, can you say the same?

<quoted text> Sure you can file against an employer in a right to work state but nothing will become of it. People in business can get around these things. If they want you gone, you are gone.
So you APPROVE of discrimination.

You would fit right in with the KKK. It's the same mentality.

BTW...you better hope no one ever decides to discriminate against your in-group.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

That's an exact, PARTIAL, quote from the Bible.

I will have to say that you don't understand what an exact quote is either. A partial quote, one where significant portions are left out, is not an exact quote.

And yes I am aware of what the Psalm says.

My point is that if you apply Buck's "exact" rule, you get nonsense like the Bible saying "There is no God".

"The fool says in his heart,'There is no God.'" would count as an exact quote. It carries the full, original meaning.

“There is no God.” is not and does not.

I am afraid we will have to put you in the remedial debate class along with Buck.

Maybe this is why fundamentalist Christians think that quote mines actually prove something. Other than their own ignorance, that is.
