<quoted text>.. there's a difference between opinions and bigotry ..

.. if you oppose a political candidate based on their position, you are expressing opinion. If you oppose a political candidate based on their party affiliation or religion, you are a bigot ..

.. religious beliefs do not excuse anyone from the label of bigotry. As a matter of fact, religious beliefs are generally the inciting factor in bigotry ..

.. when anyone marginalizes, demeans, shuns or creates a societal outcast, they deserved to be labeled a bigot ..

Bigotry, I would say. You're claiming your opinion to be a fact and defaming Christians as a whole. Gently of course but it is what it is.

Ms. Rivers, obviously it would be normal from your perspective, and yes, it is a moral issue. I suppose you did not know this?
CS.
Who I spend my time with is not a moral issue to me. The morality comes in when I'm chastised for that but that's your moral issue. Not mine.

And Solomon begat Roboam and Roboam begat Abia and Abis begat Asa.

Then Herod when he had privily called the wise men inquired of the diligently what time the star appeared.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism he said onto them O generation of vipers who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come.

Blessed are the merciful for they shall see God.

But when ye pray use not vain repetitions as the heathen do for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Ask and it shall be given you;seek and ye shall find;knock and it shall be opened unto you.

" Conquest of Paradise "
Lyrics: 

Hmmmmmmmmmm.
Hmmmmmmmmmm.
Hmmmmmmmmmm.
Hmmmmmmmmmm.

There shines a light in the heart of man
That defies the dead of the night
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight

A sunny day, when a baby's born
The little things that we say
A special sparkle in someone's eye
Simple gifts, every day

Somewhere there's a paradise
Where everyone finds release
It's here on earth and between your eyes
A place we all find our peace

Come - open your heart
Reach for the stars
Believe your own power
Now, here in this place
Here on this earth
This is the hour
It's just a place we call paradise
Each of us has his own
It has no name, no, it has no price
It's just a place we call home
A dream that reaches beyond the stars
The endless blue of the skies
Forever wondering who we are?
Forever questioning why?

Come - open your heart
Reach for the stars
Believe your own power
Now, here in this place
Here on this earth
This is the hour

There shines a light in the heart of man
That defies the dead of the night
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight
Like wings of hope taking flight
***

Shalom to both you and Brotherly Love!
We move on... in Love.

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God's word with power, revealing all of His mysteries and making everything as plain as day, and if I have faith to say to a mountain jump and it jumps but I don't love I'm nothing. If I give all I earn to the poor or even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, no matter what I believe, no matter what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.

@ the True Christians:

As a Christian, would it be better to tell my own kids or perhaps others that it is okay to have pre-marital relations with their girlfriend or boyfriend before they marry (as another has recently said)?

Or as a Christian would it be better to provide an example to my children and others that they don't have to follow the course of this world or culture to engage in sex ahead of marriage?

If I say that I'm a Christian and encourage others in pre-marital sex instead of chastitiy then how can I be a true Christian in that area?

And Jesus saith unto him I will come and heal him.

And he arose and departed to his house.

And as ye go preach saying the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.

And as the departed Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John What went ye out into the wilderness too see A reed shaken with the wind.

But if ye had known what is meaneth I will have mercy and not sacrifice ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

And some fall among the thorns and the thorns sprung up and chocked them.

Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

The biblical doctrine of redemption teaches that before we were God’s children, we were children of wrath. We were enemies of God. We were fallen and out of relationship with God. We were not God’s children, and we were bound in sin – lost, and destined to spend eternity outside of the presence of God (hell).

But God showed mercy to us, reached out to us through Jesus Christ, took the penalty for our sin upon himself, and demonstrated his love for us by dying in our place as an offering to God for our sins (redemption). His love, then, is expressed through the self-sacrificing act of redemption on the cross.

This “redeeming love” now gives us a father-child relationship with a God who was formerly our enemy. It grants us undeserved forgiveness, and the promise of eternal salvation – ultimately and finally expressed and experienced in heaven.

It helps to stick to that Grace...
Forgiving then, becomes a whole lot easier.
I would agree this follows such Love.

Being a true Christain isnt what YOU do to become a Christian. Its what JESUS done to give You the opportunity to become a Christian. We start by giving honor to the ONLY one who deserves it. Jesus Christ..Not Us and ALL the good that we think we do. Don't you understand that Brother Quin. We do good things BECAUSE we are Christians..Yes, That should be as natural as breathing, It becomes self righteousness when we begin to take credit for what WE DO because we are true Christians. IF one is born again..They are TRUE Christians according to the Bible so you can stop all that TRUE Christian mess. God knows who belongs to Him regardless of how you may feel about it. Sorry..

Check out that post. You've made more than one error lately.

Did it ever occur to you that you might be to blame - that you might have skipped my post or forgotten it rather than me evading it? You started with the dismissive arrogance, and now you have egg in your face.
Badly played.
Egg on my face? Nah. Apparently, you're easy to overlook. Anyway...

What if I said the same: Do you think that people automatically mistaken you for a unbeliever just because you use currency that doesn't mention gods?
What if you did? What difference would that make considering that as of right now, our currency says "IN GOD WE TRUST"? So, based on this simple fact, the question remains? Do people, right now, mistaken you for a believer just because our currency says "IN GOD WE TRUST" on it? Does the one receiving your money even care what you are, or what you believe?

So, you're going to resort to nitpicking, now, huh? On our currency, the term reads as "GOD". Who cares?
Ians wrote:
How about THIS instead: How about since it does matter, that we unbelievers assume the majority and change it?
As of today, the majority in this country are theists. And during this discussion, you're the only one that seems to care so far. I've already shared with you how much it matters to me, so... I don't care if our currency had a Lincoln-log with wings on it. As long as I can still use it to purchase my necessities, I don't give a Lincoln-log, either way.
Ians wrote:
I don't find either of those exclusionary or offensive. They aren't making a statement about what an American believes.
They're both religious-based iconography. One is of Egyptian, religious origin resting in the heart of the capitol of the United States of America. The other portrays the first president and founding father of the United States of America as the Greek god, Zeus. And you don't think neither says anything in regards to what Americans believe?!

I can understand your statement if we, as a nation, purchased these items because as a nation, we enjoyed collecting such items as artwork. But, that's not the case.

Whatever egg you think I got on my face must have come from the eggs you're laying.

Someone in the name of Christianity mentioned that it was okay to engage in premarital sex recently on this thread... no one said anything...

I mentioned that I did not have any pre-marital sex with my wife in the name of Christianity on this thread... and some are riled up.

Sad that.
