Bonsoir Madame I am sorry an pained to hear of your hip, I believe with continued progress and striving toward your goal you shall accomplish what you seek. Thank you for your compliment Madame. I hope you do not find me too formal, if so I apologize it was very much a part of my upbringing back in Martinique and something I do not wish to change. I am not...comfortable with slang it puzzles me and English is not my first language either. I grew up in a 19th century world in a 20th century time. Thankfully, many have become adapted to my methods of speech however outdated they may appear to be. The holidays are wonderful we usually spend them abroad, we are currently planning to go to Belgium soon. We are very well-traveled having been to Africa,parts of Asia,Europe and Latin America. Lately we have decided due to the nature of our work to stay closer to home. Our clientele list is expanding exponentially and I fear we may not make the trp. We are going there for...chocolate....Madame....B elgian chocolate is wonderful and so is the country. Has she told you of my background? Would you care to know? I have been asked this many times in my life. With Seraphine she is as mentioned a Creole I was not aware that they as an ethnic group existed in the United States at least not by name but her family is very liberal and very proud of their culture.
I am impressed that you and your wife have traveled so many roads, so far way. You both have been blessed to do so, in your work. In reviewing my family tree, my third great grandfather was born in, forgive me if I mispell the words, Hainaut, Belgium. My second great grandfather, came from Waziers, Nord, Nord_Pas-de-Calais France, my grandfather was also born there. They came to American when my grandfather was very young. Many frenchmen met and resided in Kansas in the late 1800's and early 1900's. The rest is history, they have all scattered to many parts of the United States. You don't have to apologize for your upbringing for being formal. I find myself inadequate in writing to you and your wife, you have both been to so many places and speak so many different languages. It has been an honor, to write to you both. God bless.

Bonsoir mon ami, thank you. Sora, myself and you all agree on many issues and see eye to eye so to speak. We are all liberals, for myself my liberalism also extends to my faith. As mentioned all people are the same in my eyes. Judgement is not mine to render, as a human being it is not my place to do so. We are described as near-socialistic by our more conservative clientele. One can be liberal and still respect all ideals, can it be said for one who is conservative however? This question is posted to all who read it but I would like to hear what you think since you are a fellow Liberal and a Humanitarian like us.

Bonsoir Madame, we have been to all of these places. Ironically, the Frenchness within me is cultural and not ethnic my father is Senegalse/Egyptian and my mother is Greek although according to her family history she is also of partial Turkish ancestry. Kansas was a mecca for Jazz starting with Charlie "Bird" Parker. A native son, we appreciate Jazz as well but our preference is in Classical music and Opera as well as Ballet (Which my sister also studied). In regards to your inadequecy it is not so, an inadequate person to me is one who is deviod of compassion and love for their fellow human beings and animals as well. The languages came naturally to us due to our multi-ethnic families. Seraphine is fluent in Bosnian I am not, however I speak Serbian, she does not. The differences between us balance themselves out well. I also compose and play Classical guitar. I need the music as does she it is our lifeblood and we are descended from musical families. It is an honor and a priviledge to coorespond with you as well. Seraphine and I are looking foward to learning more about you. In regards to this topic I believe Jesus loved all of humanity equally and died for all people irregardless of sexual orientation or anything of the like, some may find our liberal ideals offensive particularly the more conservative Christians but as we are taught judge not lest ye be judged and for whatsoever you measure it shall be measured back to you. It is only human beings who distort His message to suit their stylized bigotry.

Bonsoir mon ami, in regards to your answer I should very much like to hear it tomorrow. You are correct, I shall not be surprised but I would like to hear it anyway. I am looking foward to your Liszt story, as a Classical pianist his works are very dear to me, his life story is a fascinating one as well, and like us he is also multi-ethnic and his exact ethnicity is still in debate to this day. Did you know although born in Hungary he spoke the language very poorly? He tried to learn in the 1870's when learning Hungarian became mandatory. In the letters of his that survive that I had the pleasure to read, he wrote to his mother in Hungarian *Giggles* she wrote back to him saying bluntly that his command of the Hungarian language was atrocious and halfway through the response he sent her he switches to French. His main language was French, at home we often switched from English to French and my native Lousiana Creole interchangeably. Bonne nuit mon ami, until tomorrow.

Who has called you a bigot?
Again, same as to Q, please brother don't trivialize the situation, in this case by jokingly calling yourself a bigot. Bigots in society are a huge problem. And there are some people within the faith that are bigots. To make it look like people are calling just anybody a bigot demeans the discrimination that goes on and is insulting to those victimized by it
Do you agree with the Wesboro Baptist Church that put a sign up that says "God hates fags"?
If not and if you understand the serious nature of the problem by some within the faith then this is not a joking a matter and people aren't being called bigots for stupid reasons
Hello Steve,

I agree, it's not a trivial matter, particularly when one can be called a 'bigot and intolerant' for not violating their conscience and acquiesce to another ones behaviour.

And no one in particular to answer your initial question , just by extension, if I happened to agree with a point by one who has been called such(Quin).

To your second question, I find Westboro's tactics reprehensible.

There are those on both sides of this issue that need to show a little tact.

Hope your night is going well, going off to slumberland in a few ,if I miss a post I'll try to get it later:)

Bonsoir mon ami, thank you I believe it is perfect as well, it has everything I need. In regards to my spelling teflon I needed to be sure. Certain words give me problems sometimes perhaps due to the accent I have. Thankfully out there in the real world I have not had any language problems as of yet. With Sora on the other hand, his accent intrigues me it sounds so....international I suppose. Many have said that he talks like Ralph Fiennes. He did attend school in England and lived there many years before meeting me. Many have remarked on his impeccable use of the English language not to mention the formality of course which is to me part of his charm and success. I also hear strains of other ethnicities in his voice like mine. The days of pidgeonholing must end in order for us to move foward. Bigotry and prejudice are gross evils that must be fought whrever we see them.
Indeed you are right about bigotry being gross and evil.... in all shapes and forms.

Bonsoir Monsieur, we have not spoke for some time for this I apologize. I am pleased to see that you are well and are currently engaged in a discussion on bigotry if I am not mistaken? Forgive me for prying but I cannot but take notice of it. You already know my stance and feelings on the subject Monsieur as we have discussed at the beginning of our coorespondence. It is inexcusable and even worse when one uses their religion in order to belittle and sabotage the life chances of others! My answer to this question I am sure you know already. But if you would prefer me to speak of it all you need do is tell me and I shall tell you what I think of this matter. I have my own viewpoints regarding the nature of Christianity that are different from the conservative mainstream. Colored by years of travel and close scrutiny of the most intimate kind. Bonne nuit Monsieur.

I agree.
I do not take the Bible or Hebrew scriptures literally or as "The Word of God".
Have you read, watched or listened to Joseph Campbell's "The Power of Myth'?
If not, I think you would get a lot out of it. I think you will be saying, like I did, "WoW! This guy thinks like me."
Yes, I am familiar with Campbell. And yes, he is a great speaker. I was listening to him when I was listening to Alan Watts and Terrence McKenna, in the late eighties - formative years. I lived in Southern California at the time, and we had a great radio station, WPFK, that featured such material regularly. Campbell was a gentle and affable man with a great heart. Thanks for thinking of me.

I shared the story last week of my cousin who was gay.....I am not covering up hatred because I really LOVED my cousin (he was like my Brother)....but as a Christian I know God has words against the gay lifestyle. I trust Gods word...I still LOVE my cousin.
Don't you think that those words from your church stain your understanding of who your cousin is? How could they not?

Your cousin has had to deal with much of the Christian world thinking of him as a living, walking abomination to their god. Why should he have to live in such a world if we can make a better one for him?

To do that, a mighty beast has to be subdued - the Christian church. I say that it's time that the rest of us began speaking up about that abomination. That knife cuts both ways. As ye sow ...

Praise The Lord
The central tool of deceit is lying, not name calling or bullying.

Christians have no access to private truths. Where is the truth in faith? You pick a doctrine and devote your life to it. It is just as valid to have faith in the exact opposite. Truth comes from observing the world, not guessing about it.

And what bigger bully is there than the Christian church? It has been bullying and scapegoating gays, women and atheists for centuries. You defeat bullies by standing up to them.

How does my comparison fail?
So lets say someone is divorced because they were put out against their wishes. Does the Bible allow for that?
Yes:
Paul wrote:
<quoted text>
But if the husband or wife who is not a believer decides to leave, let them leave. When this happens, the brother or sister in Christ is free. God chose you to have a life of peace.(1Corinth.7:15)
Of course this addresses one being a believer and one an unbeliever. But even so, as in the case of two unbelievers separating,all have the opportunity to repent.

Are those who agreed to a divorce (which means they agreed to tear asunder what God has joined) living in any less isn than someone who is gay?
As I answered a previous post,unless they are fornicating, no.
Skombolis wrote:
<quoted text>
Being divorced is a sin. So every day someone stays divorced is another day they continue to keep torn apart what God has joined. They could rectify the situation by getting married again.
First, you must remember one does have two Biblical grounds for a divorce : adultery and desertion. Barring that, the 'act' would be a sin - but not in perpetuity. Jesus actually said :

"I tell you that whoever divorces his wife, except for the problem of sexual sin, and marries another woman is guilty of adultery"(Matt. 19:9)

"...and marries another woman is guilty of adultery." Then, it would be like "shackin' up" with someone other than your 'rightful wife'. What if he didn't remarry?
Skombolis wrote:
<quoted text>
But someone who is gay is committing no sin unless they fornicate. So one could indeed argue imo one is "living in sin" more than the other
Bit i made that point just because of the irony. The term "living in sin" is not found anywhere in the Bible and was made up by radicals on the right to justify why being gay is worse than the sins they commit because there sins are over and done with while someone continues to be gay.
"Living in sin" has been around quite some time, and applied to heterosexual couples 'Shackin' up' unmarried. Sure , may later have been applied to homosexual couples to but wasn't "created" to describe them.
Skombolis wrote:
<quoted text>
Of course that misses the obvious point that being gay is not a sin.


Not an 'obvious point' to all; if one has the propensity but doesn't act on it, no. Just like if a guy's a whoremaster(propensity for), if he's not 'acting it out', no also.
Skombolis wrote:
<quoted text>
And if a Christian sins every day they are living in just as much sin as someone who is gay that fornicates every day.
And they're both condemned, what's the point?
Two wrongs don't make a right?
Skombolis wrote:
<quoted text>
What I mean by elevate it is make single it out as if it is worse than other sins. No disrespect but it sounds like that is what you are trying to do when you mention the Bible speaks of different punishments for different sins. That may be true but not in the cases of all sin of the flesh. ALL sin of the flesh will prevent someone from inheriting the Kingdom of God.
Really rejection of the Saviour will deny one his inheritance:
