Right, so don't go blaming religious people *only* for voting down gay marriage.
It was all of us, religious and non-religious alike.
Why do you think "most discrimination has its roots in the bible"?

Did you just call me a pickle head?!? Hey!
The bible has a few examples of discrimination, yes. But I think they are to be used as examples of what not to do, not what to do.
Yes, I think some posters here think homosexuals are evil or sinners or whatever. I'm sorry about that.
But they don't represent all Christians no more than Perez Hilton represents all gays. And they certainly don't represent all CA voters....

Really? A coward? Then you suggest that I be more aggressive? I really don't know how. Aren't I attacking your church now?
And your church is nothing like a wounded gazelle. It is more like the Kraken.
But there is some truth to your comment. Many of us are watchfully waiting for your church to self-destruct, a church too big for us to bring down. And I confess that I do take some pleasure in watching it dying. It really is a loathsome institution highly deserving of the contempt of mankind.
Wouldn't Christians take pleasure at the thought of the death of Satan? This is the same thing.
Maybe you don't know how much that church is despised by the rest of us. I'm an atheist, and your church calls me vile, an abomination, the moral equivalent of murderers and whoremongers, and that I deserve to be thrown into a lake of fire while still conscious and be kept conscious forever. How do you think that I should feel about its demise?
So please don't look for any more sympathy from unbelievers than this guy got:

You might have better luck at that hero thing if you would show up in tights and a cape...please not red or blue...that has been done way to often...now I think pink would go with your complexion...maybe a few stripes and polkadots...think about it.
How about rainbow colored pajamas or a Roman toga with a yellow stripe running down the back of it?
I'm sorry, I'm fresh out of super hero ideas. how about we make him a villain, sorta like a Dyick Dastardly, and Ms. Happy's cat can play Muttly?

As an Autistic left-handed biological female with an appearance which stands out from "the norm" and is also Androgynous in presentation, I too have experienced abuse and even outright discrimination. In some other cultures, something as innocuous as being left-handed is considered deviant. Fortunately in America, being left-handed has positive connotations or individuals are at the very least, indifferent to it. Though ANYTHING different is considered deviant to a cultural collective, for the most part, and everyone has been oppressed throughout various points in history. This is a shame. It horrifies me. Had I been born in the Middle Ages, I would be condemned as a "witch" and burned at the stake. And, in this day and age in the West, Psychiatry is taking over where religion left off as the new status quo enforcer. Autistics are thought to be disordered, when, in fact, we are quite content as we are and would like to stay that way. We are eccentric even to the point of being called "bizarre" and we happily move to the beat of our own drum. Though our experience of the world is often invalidated unless we serve our oppressors in some way. Then we are often put on display, as "retards who can do tricks." And it is indeed true that most of us are actually the intellectuals, the scientists, and the philosophers, brimming with creative talent. It has ALWAYS been this way. Though even if we have no talent whatsoever, or at least don't want to share with you, we still deserve to exist for our own right, and not solely for you. Variation and difference for its own sake is positive and beautiful.
Good Post Courtney.....

I like your posts "Name appears on post". You have a style of just saying what you think and letting people just read your thoughts.
I read back a few pages here and found you to be a bright and intelligent poster. Some of the other posters - their style was a bit different is the nicest way that I know to say it.
Keep being just who you are - you are doing good!

well, how about just Christ?
But really, when someone prays to YHWH through God's Son. Do you really think YHWH is petty enough to deny his Child the goodness of God because he prays in the name Jesus and not Yahushua? I really do not think so.
God created the english language too. And if [Iesus] is cumbersome on the tongue of an english man or woman, I don't think Christ is offended when a english speaking person say Jesus Christ.
Some Buddhist sects are quite dangerous. If you notice the idols of buddha some are very sweet looking and innocent. Just a cute buddha with a big tummy. Some, are quite dark, menacing and evil looking.
1st: They are all idols friend, whether they be a cute looking image or an ugly one. I've rarely if ever seen a statue or statuette of the virgin Mary that was ugly, but we still should not bow down to them or worship them even if they are just symbols or mediums.

2nd: Yes, God or some gods may have created teh English language. Where or how do you know that the 'Creator' created the English language? If memory serves me correct, I believe languages came about at the tower of babel (from which we get babble from), meaning confusion so that the builders of the tower understood not each other. Birthed out of confusion are languages that serves as a barrier between all the children of men. English is predominantly hatched from Latin and then also Germanic, and as studies both prove and suggest that many of the words are of pagan origin and intent. So while I'm not telling anyone that they should fully learn how to speak Hebrew, all I'm saying is that some English words are imporper and from wicked origins and intent.

Obviously, if you know this, then it is wise and necessary to amend the language if and wherever possible. If you know the word Jesus which comes from the Latin Iesus and the Greek Iesous is some Roman attempt to get 'Christians' and lo, the entire world to worship Zeus them most likely you would not want to utter that name.

If you know the word God or god (doesn't matter) comes from gud, gott or guddis which was a Norse and Germanic Sun deity, then Obviously you would not call the Almighty Creator a God.

If you knew that Lord denotes worship to Baal and to a lesser extent Adonis (where you get Adonai) then obviously you would not call the Creator a Lord.

If you know that the Savior never worshiped in a synagogue because a synagogue is a Greek pagan temple, then obviously we would say Bayit or Ba'it or Be'it and not synagogue.

If we knew that the word 'Church' comes from the word Circe (pronounced either Kirk or Sersei) was a heathen god, then obviously you would stop going to church. Ask a Scott or an Irish man, an elder or a clan, they call their churches Kirk or Kurk which comes from Circe.

I'm not a master of languages, but I know that some things cannot or should not be translated or you will lose the identity, the meaning and the intent of it. Iesus or Jesus does not mean Yahweh is Salvation. Ie usually expresses the word 'Hail' and sus is pronounced Zeus like like in Jesus, the 's' has a 'z' sound unlike the spanish equivalent 'Jesus' in which the middle 's' carries the 's' sound.

My question would then be, and I hope to receive answer please; Of all the names in scripture, why translate then remove the name Yashua (Ha Mashiach)?

Talk about combersome: Why has no one seen it fit to translate Zerubabel, Zedekiah or worse Mahershalalhashbaz. By the way, Ezekiel and Nathaniel are Hebrew names too.

Not trying to be arrogant, but if truth is arrogance then I'm guilty.

Shalom my friend.

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.

Refrain:
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!

Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross.
Dark is the stain that we cannot hide;
What can we do to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
Brighter than snow you may be today.
Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?
~~~~~~

Be careful not to do your acts of righeousness before men to be seen by them.If you do,you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

So when you give to the needy,do not announce it with trumpets,as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets,to be honorered by men.I tell you the truth they have received their reward in full.

But when you give to the needy,do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.

So that your giving may be in secret.When your Father,who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

My guess is, if you were a woman, your ordination would by ungodly. Always remember, in his religious cult, women must be silent and defer to the MAN.
