Skom will get there, HL, but sometimes, the harder the life one has, the harder it is to bounce back .... try and see Skom as the Soul that he is, and feel compassion for what is in reality, someone who is suffering.

Try and see something deeper than your eyes can focus on - use your 'third eye' or your 'inner sense' although in reality, I think you are already there :)

If you're gay, it's not a choice. Although, there's an identity component to it, it's not something you can unlearn. Being Christian entails having a religion - something you can change, unlearn let fade away, whatever.
"Gay" is much more like black or white.
actually engaging is gay sex is a choice. Just like being a Christian is a choice. So its not bigoted to say despite a Revolutionary War fought in part to ensure religious freedom that you want to stop the spread of Christianity whose official teachings are love everyone and its ok to hate them (as some clearly do)because they chose to be Christian? Ians says he's ok if we limit our faith just to our churches and homes. So is it ok to say its ok to be gay but you cant choose to enagage in gay sex and to please keep your gayness limited to your houses and clubs cus we dont want ur gay influences on society or in politics? Face it..your a bigot and Ians is a bigger bigot

I am sorry, I made you feel that way, and yes this is the place for you if you enjoy talking about Jesus. We all have our own opinions.
You obviously don't know very much about Christianity, and Catholics. They are very different. We both believe in God and Jesus Christ. Catholics believe they must go to a priest, and repent their sins to get forgiveness from God. Christians do not, we ask God, ourselves . Therefore no one knows what sin one has committed it is strictly between God and the person.
Sex crimes are committed by most people who are not married, who rapes a woman. Predators who rape kids are usually married or in a relationship, gay/straight to hide their acts as a cover.
I don't know why any person would ask for forgiveness for their own sexual doings in front of another or even telling another....RED FLAG! I won't say anything more about that.
Now, as far as children, and adolescents....that is the reason why they have parents and guardians. The government has NO business in any ones home life, unless family services has had to step in, for crimes against the parent. If parents want teachers telling their kids stuff, than the parents should be notified, and given the right to let them be in the class, or to take them out, do to their beliefs. Quite simple
As far as you troubling me, it is always interesting to see other people's opinions even if we disagree.
Yeah, I'm familiar with Catholics and Protestants. You guys are both Christians, despite the illusions that some Protestants have about Catholics not being Christian.

Yes, good point about public confessions about sex.

It was my understanding that public schools notified parents before teaching sex ed classes for these very reasons. Don't they? Also, if your kids go to school, they're going to learn all kinds of non-you stuff from non-you people - their friends, media, etc. Sexual and violent imagery is all over media now. Don't you want them to have an active engagement with learning about these kinds of issues rather than just one or two nights discussing it with them as a parent?

Hello, Good post. I had actually thought the same thing, until God kept showing me it was futile... This is just one of the articles I have. But please, always pray about it, and let God lead your way...:) Love in Christ...
I'm happy leaving this one with GOD, and just making sure I keep walking on the straight path; I have seen too many others wandering here and wandering there, and end up being depressed through their habits and lifestyles.:) Love to you also in CHRIST

What is it with you and gay?
From what I've read, you're not gay, Skom's not gay, IANS isn't gay and HFY isn't gay (although, I'm not opposed to a test).
Perhaps you could pick another group of humans to help define your position. It would keep me off your back, wouldn't it?
Hmmm...only if we video it for RR. I mean Tide! Or Happy Lesbo - I think she's the highest bidder so far.

Hi Serah, Yes its ridiculous. Most people with even an elementary knowledge of Christ will admit that such killing is inconsistent with His teachings. People often try to justify their hatred, actions, and even killing by appealing to whatever is held in high regard by the population. It follows that if Christianity is or was held in high regard by populations, that certain people with the power to carry out atrocities would attempt to justify them in the name of Christianity. It is a simple-minded person indeed who reasons, "Joe claims he is a Christian--Joe committed an atrocity in the name of Christianity--therefore Christianity promotes atrocities." The Bible states that the person who says he loves God, but hates his brother, is a liar. There are many people through history that have done horrible things in the name of Christianity, but Jesus' words, "you will know them by their fruit" tell the real story regarding their love for God and whether they follow the commands of Jesus Christ.
Here is an interesting site that I got this info from..

Bonsoir mon amie, I am glad you agree with me. We are currently on our second game of chess, it seems that I always win the first and he wins the second. For us it takes hours because we know eachother too well, but it is more fun this way because we also carry on lengthy dialogues about anything and everything during the game. Punctuated by sips of red wine and the oysters.

They're practicing Christianity in the way that they were taught, like every other Christian. Not every Christian is taught the same way of being Christian, but they are all taught a specific way of being Christian. This changes over time, and varies over circles of influence. America had it's witch burners in the 1600s. These African Christians obviously don't have access to the type of influence that keeps most Christians from doing what you would call "evil". They do have the Bible, just not whatever keeps them from being "evil". That tells me that the Bible might not be something to pass around freely.
Christian missionary work is a real mixed bag. There's been some good and some bad, in my assessment. In this instance, it's a bag of shit.
Yes, it is a bag of shit, but they are not Missionaries from a more civilized world, they are still living without any real understanding of JESUS.

JESUS would never had done those things, nor would HE ever condone them, and nor should HIS followers. If we break the law, we are criminals and labelled accordingly, but if a Christian breaks the law of CHRIST, they are simply noted as Christian and reflect against all Christianity. There is no such thing as a radical Christian; you either are by your actions, or you are not :)

Meaningless qualifications?
Your hatred of IANS is making you stupid. Or making you honest self apparent.
Hmmm..so much for just words on a page. I should hae known if anything would get you going it would be a post about Ians. at what point does that start to embarass you? Fawn over him if you want but if u r going to call me stupid u may want to wait to see how your hero defines 'church'. I have asked him repeatedly. it is obvious he uses the term to couch his bigotry.

@HIDING...first you cant prove people dont choose to be gay, what about prison when straight people chose to engage in gay sex? Secondly even if ppl are born gay so what? it isnt hate because someone chose to be part of a faith? thats quite the ethical rationalization. like you said, nobody knows 99% of all Christians. Which.....now stay with me....it is bigoted to label all Christains when someone doesnt even know the person they are labeling. And you want to stop the spread of Christianity? Facinating. I want to sleep with the Olson twins and win the lottery. Lets race. I'll meet you at the 'never gonna happen' finish line
This is you not understanding the differences between sexual behavior and sexual identity. Once you work through that, you'll understand how straight men can suck c+ck in prison or on hockey teams. Think of it this way, Skom: no matter how many men you have sex with because there are no women around, you're never going to fall in love with them and linger in the scent of their breasts.

Next, your reading issues. IANS doesn't label all Christians. He explains this often. But whatever, just go find a post of his where he writes "All Christians are bad people. They all need to be X'ed." or whatever and show me.

Why are you forcing me to defend him anyways? Start backing up your assertions with links to IANS' posts. Then you and I can have an IANS writings and philosophy study seminar. Weeee. Horray for fun...

<quoted text>Maybe he wants u on his back:) I know u asked riverside but I have been using it because for some reason they understand hating people who are gay is wrong but cant seem to grasp that judging and hating millions of people whom they have never met is also wrong. Some people think its ok to hate all Christians and justify it simply by directing their hatred at the 'church' which is nothing more than a body of hundreds of millions of Christians. If someone has an issue with what some Christians say or what some churches teach then let them address that. but negatively stereotyping millions whom they have never met is bigoted. You know me though I am against bigotry of any kind.(T) PEACE
You don't seem to have a problem comparing organized religion to sexual preference.
