If Nambla is flaunting their pedophilia in public...why are they not arrested.
I know that in your quest to shine a light on homosexuality that you are trying to point out all of their "sins". Shouldn't we instead be focused on every offender of child abuse...whether they be pedophiles, homosexuals, lesbians, heterosexual males and females? They all deserve to be prosecuted...sent to prison...and in my opinion...if we didn't live in a civilized country...let them have a taste of what they imposed on a defenseless victim.
You are turning the crime of pedophilia in to a homosexual crime. That is not fair to those that have been victimized by those outside the homosexual community.
Yes, Annie, you are correct. This is a problem that happens everywhere, it has no boundaries, and it is not confined to one group of people.

For people to paint the problem as being confined to just one section of society is reckless and is not facing the reality of child abuse.

Child Sexual Abuse in the Church - "Though father-daughter sexual abuse account for 75% of incestuous relationships, we must not forget that sibling sexual abuse is also of concern"
http://www.directionjournal.org/article/...

"How should Christians respond to non-consensual incest relationships? Should the perpetrator be treated as a criminal and completely cast aside by the church? How should the church respond to consensual incest relationships?" http://www.revelife.com/724558457/incestuous-...

"One in three-to-four girls, and one in five-to-seven boys are sexually abused before they turn 18, an overwhelming incidence of which happens within the family. These statistics are well known among industry professionals, who are often quick to add, "and this is a notoriously under reported crime."
http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2...

"Heterosexual men, who do not find sex with other men satisfactory, perpetrate most child sexual abuse. Many child molesters, even though they are heterosexual, abuse both boys and girls."

The Google search I ran, don't take my word for it.

Look for yourselves.

People are fooling themselves if they think child abuse only happens within one group of people, or in only one area of society.

You are certainly ignoring the problem if you think it cannot happen in a Church, your Church, the Church.

It happens everywhere, and it isn't confined to one group of people.

Besides, if you parse my post very, very carefully, everybody will be able to see that I actually did not say that I was leaving, just that I felt unable to contribute further.
When I give my word, I keep it. But when I make a personal decision, I can change it, and besides I am careful to leave myself some wiggle room in case I am criticized.
That was frigging hilarious, by gob, and Dim bit like a fish. Nom nom nom.

You and Sora are good examples. Too bad that you are so atypical for your church. It doesn't seem to have influenced you at all. How could anybody object to religion as you live it?
You other Christians that want to blame everybody but yourselves, please note this. If you could be good neighbors like this, we wouldn't have so much cause to denounce your church and the way it makes so many of you. It's you Dim and Trifecta, not jealously or insecurity as you suggest when trying to divert criticism. You are neither a threat nor possessors of anything enviable.
Nobody here hates Christians for being Christians. We have a problem with the kind of people that most of you have allowed yourselves to become. You've let yourselves go intellectually and morally. We need many fewer of you being led by the nose into homophobia, atheophobia, and antiscientism for starters.
People like Sora and Seraphime aren't made by the church. They seem to have transcended its worst influences. Congratulations. You are welcome neighbors.

NOW if the "hole" was created before 12,000 years ago(that's the time of gamma radiation influx along with changing C14 in the earth atmosphere due to the Vela X supernova, then all your radiological readings will have to be readjusted if that area was affected by gamma and even possibly particles later, and dating is all but out of the question...as it could be pff by 10-40,000 years or more.
Good thing we can still use high pressure fracture of crystal to at least tell us that extreme high pressure created those stresses.
Oh, by the way...has anyone ever measured that quartz stress in subduction pressure? It sure would be a shame if that would make it's way into a "crater" through a fault and screw up the calculations of 2 grains of quartz thought to be the result of an impact explosion that had no tektite glass evidence on the site huh?
Some things just crack me up ~ science and their additives to food and chemicals are making us sick enough that the prescribed drugs has just blown way of proportion, the Govts know it is happening and plan to ban stuff some time down the track - making sure they don't hurt any of the Companies financially, to the detriment of the people. Great team....

They admit they don't know much about most of our DNA, but admit to stuffing it up ~ and people actually believe they know how the world as we know it today began, and can use all sorts of tests and theories to prove their point.

Then, when they realise they were wrong, they just write a new thesis... and explain that science is a living and learning process. They learn from their mistakes, as such. Enough to make people sick; really sick.

Christians that won't attack "sinners" are vilified and told that they are not True Believers ®©. We see that right here on this thread. They posted a YouTube link a few days ago of some militant Christians bullying one of their own - a woman - for being too tolerant of gays. And several of the local faithful piled on - I don't recall which. I think that they were attacking Le_Le at the time.
Is that kind of like the gays attacking the people that are ex-gays? And the gays attacking any and all forms of "gay therapy" for those that don't want to be gay? Is that like black men attacking other black men for being "too white"?

Your location says Germany.

Just where in Germany?

"The Evangelical Church in the Rhineland, the second largest Protestant Church in Germany, is the latest church body to apologize to victims of sexual abuse in their institutions.

The vice-president of the church, Petra Bosse-Huber, said on March 22 in Duesseldorf,“We are ashamed and upset that such infringements apparently also happened in our church and in our social welfare department. We ask the victims for forgiveness.”

Her apology came just days after Pope Benedict XVI apologized for abuses that had occurred in Roman Catholic institutions in Ireland and been kept under wraps for decades. Irish bishops, Benedict said, had “failed, at times grievously, to apply the long-established norms of canon law to the crime of child abuse,” thus enabling abusers to strike again.
http://www.christiancentury.org/article/2010-...

That seems to be a fairly major development. In Germany.

A Google search looking at abuses within the Protestant Church...

In Germany.

Don't take my word for it. Look for yourselves.

Time is amazing :)

It can fly by so fast our heads almost spin and 4 minutes waiting for an egg to boil can drag on seemingly for ages. Thinking back down memory lane, we really realise how precious time is, and how precious our loved ones were :)

Maybe I missed it but I have seen one gay put NAMbLA in a "moderate" negative light... I've seen another mention their association with the IGLA from another thread... but nope, no direct condemnation of it.

Why's that?

<quoted text>Good morning Serah, that is what I do with the misfits here, I don't bother to get caught up in their useless tripe because they are not interesting in learning anything for Godly edification, but just to further their own Godless tripe for useless debate, like the Bible says, they profess themselves to be wise and have become fools instead, and they think that they can convey their "wisdom" upon us that our faith is in vain because they are blind to that very truth that we live by.

If you wanted to know...the info is out there. You have just chosen to concentrate on that which you oppose...those that you hate.

Read the article that I posted...I think that you will find...child abuse is committed by all groups of people.

Think about it Adam...since most rapes are committed against females...who is raping them?
