I didnt see the top portion. Of course there is a difference. I am surprised you dont see it when Hiding and Ians engage in it all the time. I seem to recall Ians asking if my mother is a prostitute. Sorry but you dont get to claim your group consists of better people because they save their bile for people outside of it and cover for each other because its self-serving. as for my replies i am doing my own experiment to help you be a more honest person. you can either be more honest or not reply. generally id prob respect the request (at least on posts not attacking Christians) but since ur friends are here with their bigotry and hate i see no reason why any of ur group should be off limits

I haven't read that far...Do you have women fighting over you?
Oops, I will have you sighing again, I fear :(

Today is Sunday, my chosen day of Sabbath, and my daughter and best friend are coming for lunch. Not sure I should head off to the pool, there is this thump still happening, but will probably drive out and pick up my car, which is still at work having been left behind when I decided to hitch a ride or two by ambulance :)

We have some things still to sort out with my Mum's belongings, and I have been ignoring the whole 'estate' thing due to family issues (I think you may know something of them) but ending up in that room where Mum died, got me to thinking I want some of her things, and don't really give a hoot about the money, and my children feel the same.

Rachel dreamed of Mum the same night I was in hospital, and she didn't know I was in hospital until the next day. So, we are putting together letter on behalf of the 3 of us, all beneficiaries, requesting that what little is left of her belongings are shared amongst us, so we have something to treasure.

Ah, Epi, why is it that when some things are going perfectly, it is because other things are topsy turvy? One day, the topsy turvy bits will be gone, and just the perfect will be left :)

It seems to me that atheists don't care to discuss any topic involving matters outside the realm of atheism in order to change views. They ask questions, but not because they want to learn the truth of the matter. They ask questions so that they can reject the answer, regardless of how much sense it might make, and ask more questions. Case in point...
Just recently, I was sent a quote that stated, in a nutshell, that biblical doctrine allows no room for accidents. Everything that occurs in life must have a reason. And every reason is either, "God," or Satan. Well, I showed verses that prove otherwise. Now, instead of accepting these verses and admitting that the person initially quoted was actually mistaken, they requested that I include the name of the authors, too, as if such an inclusion will prove or disprove what I quoted. I mean, either way, the quotes exist. So, with or without the inclusion of the authors' names, the fact remains-- the bible proves otherwise.
You see what I mean, though?
Hey BLL,
We have had a lot of Atheist come on this thread to just harass but not all. There have been some good one come in here too. But I agree this little gang came here to make trouble. They remind me of someone cramming something down someone’s throat while yelling that someone is wrong for trying to cram something down their throat.

Some think doing something wrong is ok because if God didn’t want it that way He would have prevented it. They either forget about, don’t want or don’t get the free will that God gave us. I for one would not want someone programmed to like/love me over someone who just genially likes/loves me. I can also see that God would want the genial love too. Besides He knows what He is doing and doesn’t need our permission to do anything.

It seems to me that Christians don't care to discuss any topic involving matters outside the realm of their particular doctrine in order to change views. They ask questions, but not because they want to learn the truth of the matter. They ask questions so that they can reject the answer, regardless of how much sense it might make, and ask more questions.
Damn that double edged sword. <smile>
I guess it could seem like that to both sides Darwin. But not from all people on both side. Roses do have those pesky thorns don’t they?:)

Grammarist explanation:
Scarf has two plurals—scarfs and scarves. Scarves is the preferred form, but scarfs is the original and was preferred before the 20th century. It’s still used, but only less than once for every 20 instances of scarves.
The switch probably happened by analogy with other words ending in f sounds. Wife, half, and leaf, for instance, are inflected wives, halves, and leaves, and likening scarf to these more common words is only natural.
Catcher prefers "scarves."
Despite the consternation that will be suffered by Skom, you are of course at liberty to disagree with me.

Wow a grammar correction. I take it all back. You guys run an ethical tight-ship of accountability. I bet you guys dont let punctuation slide either! The hate and bigotry you guys are cool with from others goes unchecked as you point your finger at how we operate but hey as long as you got spell-check I guess you guys are alright. Personally i dont care how you guys choose to come off as its a reflection on your group not ours. I am just pointing out the hypocrisy

I didn't say anything earlier, but I do disagree with your concept of a collective consciousness, as I (mis?)understand it.

As I see it, I got mine and you got yours.

I didn't take it as being rude nor do I mind answering your question.
First I must correct you on something...I no longer am a part of the Christian faith.
Despite what some might think my stance on equality did not stem from my son being gay. That belief was a part of me long before he came in to my life. I also walked away from that faith long before I knew that he was gay. There is no correlation between the two.
I grew up seeing both sides of Christianity...the good...and the bad. It was always a constant conflict with me I think...the two sides just did not mesh. How could the God that I believed in...burn someone because they were different.
There is this childhood song that I learned...
If you don't go to Sunday School,you'll grow up to be bad
If you don't go to Sunday School you'll surely wish you had
If you hope some day to see the Lord,then you better start today
For those who miss the Sunday School,are on the downward way
Yet I knew so many good people that never went to Sunday school.
I lived in an area that when I look back...was racist and bigoted. It still is...I see it now...I just didn't then. It never dawned on me to against someone because they did not believe, look or act like me.
I don't know...to make a long story short...I always seemed to migrate to those that were shunned...simply because they were different.
Today I look at the above little song...one that I sang as a child...and wonder...
A comment was made to me last night...why couldn't I just post what I was grateful for (or something such as that). Okay...here goes.
If there is a God...I am grateful that he gave me my son. I am grateful that he was born to a mother that won't turn her back on him...a mother that accepts him for who he is.
I consider my son a gift from God...one that I promised to love and take of...that promise was not based on whether he was gay or straight.
Thank you - wonderful words!

That song is awful to teach to children. So much of religion is child abuse.

I'm an atheist, so I feel that there's no need to second guess yourself with regards to your decision to leave Christianity. I see that as a positive. For me, it was a process of maturation, of outgrowing simple ways of thinking. For you, it seems more of becoming increasingly moral and thoughtful.

I've spent much of my academic life researching sexuality - the way Western cultures "do" sexuality is not replicated in other cultures and it's negative treatment of same sex sexual behavior is among the minority of cultures, actually. It's just that Western cultures have all the money, so they've spread their views around the world - that's a plus for women (now anyways, not 50 years ago), and a growing plus for minorities, but it has been hard on same sex sexuality - also, until recently, where it's more of a plus now.

Ya know LeLe I fell to sleep last night or I should say this morning - thinking of what is coming especially for women here in America -- Sharia Law will be prevalent one day.
And also thoughts of my first teenage marriage where I was physically abused,I litterally have been beaten unrecognizable several times. Attempted to be sold to into forced prostitution - took out to an old deep well in the middle of nowhere and assured my body would never be found.
I still found the will to fight back and get away -- I've never stopped working my way up and out of any situation I've ever found myself in.
Women need to hold responsibility for their own lives as well as not using someone for a crutch for failing. Indeed I'm a strong woman of faith "self made if you will" but looking back I see Gods footprints every step of my way.
Thats a really nice thing for you to say is that I'm one of the reasons you come back to this thread -- I can't think of too many threads that one can find eternal friendships, but we have it here.

You have to learn to read more carefully.

I happen to have an interest in proper grammar. HL is aware of this interest. HL became curious about the proper plural form of "scarf". So she inquired. I replied.

There was no "correction". In fact, if you read my post again, more carefully this time, you will see that "scarfs" and "scarves" are both acceptable as the plural form of "scarf".

Two other things, for YOUR benefit this time: First, the word "don't" requires an apostrophe. There is no alternative spelling. You misspelled the word in your post, and twice to boot. Try not to do it again, or you will be jeopardizing the likelihood of acceptance as a member of the Holy Church of Catcher.(You should also sprinkle a few commas into your sentences.)

As for the second thing, this time it's a question: Why should Jesus love me?
