Your sleeping on the couch tonight !
Look at the last line first:

TO WOMEN EVERYWHERE FROM MEN

[1] Learn to work the toilet seat. We need it up, you need it down. If you find it up, put it down. You don't hear us bitching about you leaving it down.

[2] Men see in about seven or eight colors, and apricot is not one of them.

[3] If it itches, we’ll scratch it. This is normal, even logical.

[4] If you think you're fat, you just may be. Don't ask us, because we don’t want to answer.

[5] Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries: these are not tests to see if we can find you the perfect present.

[6] If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear. If you are wondering what we REALLY meant by our answer, write it down and read it back. That’s what we meant.

[7] Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, or no-hitters.

[8] Sunday means sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be. And no, shopping is not a sport.

[9] If we ask what's wrong and you say "nothing," you should mean it. Yes, you're probably lying, but it's just not worth the ordeal. Don’t be mad because we took you at your word.

[10] Anything you choose to wear is fine. Really. If it weren’t, we’d have told you before you asked.

[11] You have enough clothes. You have too many shoes.

[12] Crying is blackmail. Save it for injuries and really bad news, not minor situations

[13] Don’t use subtle hints because they don’t work. Strong hints don't work either. Nor the really obvious ones. Just say it.

[14] No, we don't know what day it is. Mark Anniversaries on the calendar and remind us the day before. Use words.

[15] Anyone who pees standing up misses sometimes. You would, too, if you tried it.

[16] Most guys own three pairs of shoes. Why do you think we can tell which pair out of thirty looks good with your dress?

[17] Yes, and no are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question. We can do that.

[18] Don’t get upset when we notice other women. Obviously, you must have noticed her too. Looking at an apple is not taking a bite.

[19] Movies about feelings are what your girlfriends are for. We want to see something blow up or get raped.

[20] A headache that lasts for seventeen months is a problem. See a doctor.

[21] Tell us to do something OR do it yourself your way, but never tell us to do something your way.

[22] Check your oil, especially if the little light is on. Signal when turning. Park between the lines, not on them.

[23] It is neither in your best interest nor ours to ask us to take the quiz in your magazine.

[24] And no, it doesn't matter which quiz or magazine.

[25] Anything said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. Comments become null and void after 7 days. We don’t remember what we meant, but it was nothing to be mad at or even to remember for so long.

[26] If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you angry, we probably didn’t mean the bad way. When we want to piss you off, you’ll know for sure.

Thank you for reading this; Yes, I know I’ll be sleeping on the couch tonight, but we really don't mind. It's like camping.

Are you implying that incest should be illegal?
I think the laws concerning incest are fine as they stand, although I do think that consenting adults makes a difference, but that's irrelevant, and primarily because there are adults out there that would venture to assert their influence over minors, regardless of consent or the ability that an adult has to make an informed choice, and so I understand why the laws are there, and what most likely motivates those laws.

The laws are there to protect those who may be forced into a situation by a family member against their will, absent consent, informed or otherwise.

I agree with that.

I also do not agree with the allowance that Rhode Island makes, and that I pointed out, in which a special provision is made for a religious group to be exempt from the laws that govern us all, just because of a religious belief.

I simply disagree 100% with the gay lifestle both spiritually, morally, physically, idealogically and also based on my faith. So on all counts I disagree with it and do not support it. Other than that, I have no problems with anyone in this room to sit down around a big table and share hot chocolate and pizza.

True. Funny thing, if as he says it was irrelevant few would care what the ceo of Chick-fil-a said some time back. Actions speak louder than worthless words. Two people in gov, one the mayor of Boston the other an alderman in Chicago seem to find your thoughts quite relevant. So much so they wanted to use the power of gov to have a say so in what a private business ceo says. Too funny.

On a Jesus loves me thread, you are curious about homosexuals.
Why not expand your horizons, become curious about other things some people do?
Why are people getting tongue rings and multiple tatoos? Why do Goths wear black and dye their hair red? Why do dudes wear pants below butt level? What about the green-haired women in Vegas playing one-armed bandits? Guys with chains on their belts holding dozens of keys? "People from WalMart?" KKKrs, wearing sheets and dunce caps? Macho guys in their pickups with testicles in the back as an ornament?
Why aren't you here expressing curiosity about that instead?

According to this scripture...shrinky dink might be right...

23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
"brother and sister" being a fellow disciple.
Maybe it is in the Bible somewhere that they are to ask forgiveness from us little heathens...I don't know...I am not familiar with it however.
Thanks, Annie.

It's an ugly little religion. I believe that we make the world a better place by pointing out the many ways it harms people, and that we do good by accelerating its demise.

You and Mr. So aka IANS are assuredly two of a kind. You both purpusefully goad us into defensive stance with your Lawless displays and lack of respect for The Creator and then expect us to turn the other cheek. When the other cheek isn't given for more wounds to be inflicted upon us, Mr. So aka IANS throws a tantrum like a spoiled brat.
Yes you wait for the other cheek with bag of golf balls hidden behind your back so you can make verbally bloody examples of us. We should stand here and watch you all rip our faith but you take offense when we slam your support for sexual perversion in the form of homosexuality. We should stand here and watch you crucify Ha Mashiach again and again and feel pleased about it?
Dr. Shrink and I don't agree very often, and his methods are quite crude but at least it isn't difficult for him to identify wrong from right and he knows the homosexual agenda is demonic sexual debauchery. Homosexuality without the 'sex' still doesn't make it right because as a man thinketh, so is he. Shrink, BLL and I are no Christians. I'm not sure if Skom (Steve) and Trifecta are but we notice most of the Christians today have massively relaxed their standards. We can all get along as human beings but it doesn't mean you will have to approve of the things I do. If you were a stripper, I would still take issue with it.
So here's my question which Wild Rider has failed to answer thus far:
If homosexuality is ok in your mind, is it ok if a father lays with his son and mother with her daughter? Are incestual relationships ok as long as they are between two consenting adults, such as brother and sister or two first cousins? Let me hear your view on this.

As someone thats posted here for a time you may want to scroll. Do what you need to but many will ask questions they don't want an answer to. Its just a game. My wife lived a homosexual lifestyle for years and was set free by the blood of Jesus Christ. Glory to God.

Good luck with that.
In my opinion, we don't need any such help and won't get it. The Christians might need to police their own to slow their church's atrophy and preserve a larger remnant, but that is not a goal of mine. In the end, humanists will define right and wrong, and we will define the Christians well.
From the Affirmations of Humanism:
• We are committed to the application of reason and science to the understanding of the universe and to the solving of human problems.
• We deplore efforts to denigrate human intelligence, to seek to explain the world in supernatural terms, and to look outside nature for salvation.
• We believe in an open and pluralistic society and that democracy is the best guarantee of protecting human rights from authoritarian elites and repressive majorities.
• We are committed to the principle of the separation of church and state.
• We are concerned with securing justice and fairness in society and with eliminating discrimination and intolerance.
• We attempt to transcend divisive parochial loyalties based on race, religion, gender, nationality, creed, class, sexual orientation, or ethnicity, and strive to work together for the common good of humanity.
• We believe in enjoying life here and now and in developing our creative talents to their fullest.
• We believe in the cultivation of moral excellence.
• We respect the right to privacy. Mature adults should be allowed to fulfill their aspirations, to express their sexual preferences, to exercise reproductive freedom, to have access to comprehensive and informed health-care, and to die with dignity.
• We believe in the common moral decencies: altruism, integrity, honesty, truthfulness, responsibility. Humanist ethics is amenable to critical, rational guidance. There are normative standards that we discover together. Moral principles are tested by their consequences.
• We are deeply concerned with the moral education of our children.
• We want to nourish reason and compassion.
• We are skeptical of untested claims to knowledge, and we are open to novel ideas and seek new departures in our thinking.
• We affirm humanism as a realistic alternative to theologies of despair and ideologies of violence and as a source of rich personal significance and genuine satisfaction in the service to others.
• We believe in optimism rather than pessimism, hope rather than despair, learning in the place of dogma, truth instead of ignorance, joy rather than guilt or sin, tolerance in the place of fear, love instead of hatred, compassion over selfishness, beauty instead of ugliness, and reason rather than blind faith or irrationality.
• We believe in the fullest realization of the best and noblest that we are capable of as human beings.
The old religion beliefs and scientific discovery were never meant to be at odds with each other or reality and actuality.
The "universal" theocracy destroyed progression of society and freedom of belief in it's agenda of greed and lust for complete dominance and power over the entire known world, and even so far as total individual submission to it's corrupt structure of totalitarianism. It is the single most abomination to cooperative knowledge and understanding the world has ever known(so far). It, in itself, is an atrocity against mankind and the ALL, as I see it. We are still suffering the perverted twisted ideology of misinformation and outright obfuscation of the truth this faction has orchestrated upon mankind. There is just enough real information and truths embedded in the writings to make folks believe it is from the omnipotent...and that fact that it is NOT the whole truth makes it an untruth. We, as a people need to seek real truth, and recognize what they have done for what it is...and that is... We have been misled.
