Nice to see you again.

Thanks very much! You made me smile, something I'm not doing much of these days. Husband and I both ill, and I had a fender-bender the other day; nobody was hurt thank God but car is totaled and we can't get another. All I do is cry, I feel so bad. But they have senior buses that will be a tremendous help.

Paul - surprise. I'm kind to ALL who are nice to me. You don't know me in real life.

I have no right to ask you this but I will anyway. I'm still terribly shaken up by my accident so at least at this time please don't pick on me. PLEASE.

When did you become a goddess to judge others in such a way as your did in this case? Isn't that non-christian Wiccan worship to put the goddess first?

Why?

Who cares?

What difference does it make?

Shouldn't we all do as Jesus said and he said nothing about homosexuals.

He said plenty about LOVE and FORGIVENESS and NOT JUDGING OTHERS..........

God can take all bad situations and make them great.

God bless you during your tough times....

Thanks for the mercy you show, just the way Jesus would want you to. How can you be so cold-hearted? Didn't Jesus say we'd be forgiven only as much as we forgive others? I can't believe your cruelty!

You are VERY kind and you restore some of my faith in humanity. I'm a little better thanks. It sure was scary - I'll never drive again - never, even though I didn't get a ticket. It was just one of those things :(

Let the shock wear off and you'll be fine.

Don't let the haters make you think they are anything other than the loud whiners they are.

If any thing laugh at their absurdity and hypocrisy, I do every day.

God is love and nothing else.

Take care of yourself..........

Forgive ALL.

What's your problem, you don't know about Jesus and what He taught?

Another typical roman..........

No matter how many times you post this unqualified drivel, it is still based on the idea of condemning people you do not know or understand.
You want a biblical proof?
Read the words of Jesus.
David Moore's cousin?

LOL.

That old 'if I repeat a lie enough it will be true' doesn't wash here.

Some of us actually know the Bible.........

Middleway, you're right - Jesus never said one word about gay/lesbians. I firmly believe some people are born that way, God loves them too and they should never be discriminated against. God does not make mistakes. Peace to you; you're a kind and understanding and INTELLIGENT person!

You are incredibly sweet! If homosexuality were such an "abomination" Jesus would have stressed that. Like praying to Mary - He never instructed anyone to do that. I was goining to leave this forum permanently, but it's REAL people like you who make sense and make it worthwhile. Homophobes are haters, and the RCC is a gay's worst nightmare.

And yes, there is a lot of humor here. Sometimes I laugh so hard!

Thanks for your non-judgmental ways. This is as Jesus taught. And thanks for your well wishes! Hugs :)

Is there anything more we as parents can do to keep queers away from our kids?
The homosexuals are trying to force my 4 year old kid to say he's a homosexual.
The queers are trying to molest and rape my 4 year old son, then have me thrown in jail if I report the queer homosexual pedophile child-molesters to the police!

Most of us in TEC feel the same way.

We allow brains that work.

Hugs back to you and healing to you and yours.

I hope you know that not all Christians preach hate and that some of us know that God gave us reason.

You have it right!

Yes there is something you can do, pay attention and stay away from roman priests.

Otherwise you need some medication for your paranoia.......
