You be one of those wolves in sheeps clothing, pretending to be a "wanna-be" christian to make the concept look bad. No need for that, they do a well enough job on their own.
I think that was the beer talking. RR is usually above such menial comments.

Everyone can see it... They came here to attack Andrew and Skom. It was their goal.
Some life to have goals like that...
LOVE ya :D
Hi Sweetie.

Skom and Andrew can handle themselves quite well in these 'battles'. In fact, I think they kind of enjoy them.

So inspiring, and at the same time so depressing.
Bonsoir Monsieur, yes it is that but she fought and died for her beliefs there is no greater courage than this, how many of us here can say we can do the same? She knew that she was going to die when she was caught it was only a matter of when. However her death inspired others to do likewise and rise against evil and tyranny. Evil flourishes when good people do nothing.

What's the point in running a castrated sheep anyway?
Sometimes they run, when they're on the lamb.

Don't tell me you herd that one.

Yep. It all seems to be over the ambiguous use of the terms "proof" and "evidence". Seemed Hiding and I has the same misunderstanding. We got it settled quicker though.
How are you doing ?

Bonsoir mon ami, with all due respect many may yes but Sora and I do not demean or vilify any person to do so is evil and judgemental.
Bonsoir mon amie Serahine, thank you for your input but it was not my intention to include you and Sora in among that group of people who do that, as you two are among the select FEW who do Not attack others for their beliefs.
Peace.

U2 LW!
I get your drift here, and Ja, so it is!
Sadly, after the recent floods where the ground has been saturated, many have lost homes - even into sink-holes weeks later - and anyone who has experienced that I pray will find some solace in knowing what I was told as a 12 yo. by my dying mum.
"If you never own a home while you are on earth, just know there is one already waiting for you upstairs."
Well... I never have... in Western/European eyes... but I sure was blessed to have a one room, grass mat floor, thatch roof, bamboo hut built for me on my Island Home! No electricity nor more than bucket water from the well... but NO bills to pay either! Surely there is a contentment when one knows - as against what some might 'think' is poverty - but in truth is FREE from the cares of this world.
The food grows on trees, or in communal plantations, and the seas and reefs give of their sea-food abundance.
His Grace, Love and Peace be with you always in your whispers, and as you care more for Honey, much strength too!
LuvU2!
Tis indeed strange,the casting of a shadow,whispering in the winds,thunder of the hoves in the clouds,trumpets around the rainbow,along with all the inner cycles of time.know only you will understand.

lol For me home is where my hat hangs and my slippers lay under the bed.Upon the table a bowl of soup made with love.Freedom,peace,love are priceless.God bless.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
That's where the church comes in so handy - as the source of that stigma and hatred. They choose to administer their religion by scapegoating gays, and the message is heard loudly and clearly by the entire culture as Hiding has delineated.
The Christian church appears to be the only significant source of homophobia in the West. It's not originating with the news media, nor Hollywood, nor the government, nor the schools. It's the church. The church has defined that value for America, which makes people's lives more difficult and dangerous. It does so selfishly in order to promote itself, and as far as I can see, offers nothing of value in return to offset the huge societal burden it imposes.
__________
.. to me, his intent is clear - any institution that promotes prejudice is a societal parasite ..
.. would a white supremacist endorse equality for blacks? If you listen to Aryan Nations long enough, you'll start to believe blacks are intellectually inferior. The identical mindset applies to any church that preaches discrimination against homosexuals based on biblical cherry picking ..
Thanks.

I call that church a societal parasite because it takes and takes and takes,returning virtually nothing of value. Christian homophobia is but one of several burdens it imposes on society. The atheophobia is just as repulsive.

Then there's the sexual prudery of ancient sexual mores and all of the guilt that causes for people, many who are ashamed to enjoy sex because of it.

And there is the antiscientism that is making American and Americans weaker.

And the self-forgiveness that teaches the kind of behavior we have been witnessing here.

And the infantilism of Christian ideology, which aims to keep people frightened, ignorant, dependent, and hoping for magic.

And the deep pessimism and nihilism of Christian doctrine. What is the cost of feeling alienated in a world that you are taught to disesteem?

And for what in return? I hear about it teaching Christian love. No thanks. Or Christian morals. More fail. Or Christian spirituality. What a joke.

We are told about Christian charity. I don't accept their claim on their word. We saw how little of the money donated to Mother Teresa's charity's made it to the poor - less than ten percent. What would unannounced audits of the books of a hundred churches chosen at random reveal? No doubt that Christian charity is far less than the tax break it gets to administer whatever crumbs it can spare for the poor.

Anyway, in biology, an entity that sucks you dry and makes you sick without giving back is called a parasite. And this church is just that, like a giant, swollen tick festering on a culture.

And here's the deep pessimism and misanthropic teaching of the church again. Mankind is such a useless, sickening stain, aren't it?

This is part of the societal burden that the parasitic church imposes on us. It makes authentic spirituality virtually impossible for the direct victim, the Christian, in whom it creates a spiritual ennui. What is the message being taught to Christian children with this? It's a big negative "You can't do it because you're human ... only the god can ... so pray for help from the ghost in the sky rather than take action"

Thanks for all you do. You can't imagine how much that helps.

Christianity in Africa is a different story. They're still obeying God's commands over there. Bastards.
Which Christians are you calling bastards? The Missionaries?
