Your god needs a Xanax.

It's interesting that you accept that it can be just for a creator to bring violence on its children. Civilized people everywhere reject that. Your children will be removed from your home by the state in the most advanced civilizations in the world if you bring violent wrath on them.

Your god is obviously the creation of primitive men who came from a time and place when such a parental relationship was not yet considered monstrous, or even wrong.

You have many, many clues to help you recognize that your god is mythical. You obviously don't mind. As I said to somebody else, unlike the typical unbeliever, you wouldn't want to know that you were wrong if you are. You feel that you can absorb being wrong in this matter, and so you aren't interested.

Dream? Of what? Strip malls? A 7-Eleven, a church, a KFC and a gas station mini-mart at every intersection? What do you think America has to offer somebody apart from a chance at a good education or a chance to make a good living, neither of which is relevant to us? And are you aware that both of those are eroding as fast as its infrastructure and middle class?
My wife is going back to California next month to visit her father for a week. She's dreading every aspect of that trip apart from being able to see him.
Don't be so damned proud. I get the best parts of America with a satellite dish, an Internet connection, or by courier.
In other words you have done your best to take whatever you could from the U.S to Mexico with you. You could have saved yourself the trouble of whittling it down to Internet and tv by not moving and keeping everything. The best thing about the U.S. is its people and its freedoms.

I think I will feel a little damned proud. For all its faults, its a better country than anywhere else. And its got Mexico beat hands down.

What is more worse than the sin of homosexuality itself? To teaching ppl it´s not a sin to commit more homosexual sins. Everyone who support homosexuals will share the same punishments like homosexuals additional to his own sins. May the LORD safe us from these ppl and their punishments.
More worse.

Hahaha.

"Homeless people" to you politically correcters...
Yeah I didn't understand what he didn't get about that. Thatwa sit, I shouldn't say bums?

I thought he was questioning the comparison.

A bum could say the same thing. Oh have the freedom to come and go and I please, to make my own choices, I don't have to be anywhere i don't want to be, I am my own boss, etc, etc

Anybody can glamorize whatever they want in their head. I have seen how Ians mind works a little better now after seeing him talk up the Mexico Dream Retirement package

One day...I saw inside that bag...everything neatly folded...his shirts folded and put in one plastic bag...his socks in another...and yet another for his pants. I was amazed at how neat and percise that he was.
I did not see a "bum"...just a man that for some unknown to me reason no longer had a home to go to.
IMO "Bums" can live in homes...be married...have kids. They are the type of people that mentally or physically abuse their families and friends. They take advantage of others. They care about no one but themselves.
Saying someone is "homeless" over calling them a "bum" is not being politically correct...it is being respectful to someone regardless of what might have happened in their lives.
Most of us at any point could have circumstances beyond our control happen and we might be on the streets. If you have a guarantee that it won't happen to you...then you are more blessed than most people.
Of course.

It's basic decency to treat others with dignity, especially the weakest members of our society.

But good luck getting through to RR.

Wow!
That rules out the drive through at McDonalds. You need a headset for that. It also rules out just about any thinking job, or one where you deal with the public.
I'm guessing night watchman.
LOL, Your deductive reasoning is terrible

And wouldn't you want an easy job if you were still making decent money at over $40 an hour during OT?

What do you do there. I know in America sometimes retirees like to do things to stay busy like be a greeter at Walmart. Are you like the local burro inspector? Make sure their smell is under acceptable levels? Although I am guessing with the water situation over there you would have a hard time distinguishing from yourself! In fact I bet you wish you could have taken that from America huh? You know, safe drinking water?

Hey let me know when you are going ot put on another one of those shows where you get all confused about who said what and then make fun of your own comments!

That last one was hilarious

Words are one thing.....Action in GODS Love is another. Do you see what I am saying Steve-o?
I do.

Do YOU see what you are saying about the Christian community?

Do you see anything analogous occurring in the skeptic community? How many of us have savaged another unbeliever? Have you seen Tide and Happy Lesbo get vicious? How about Catcher and me? Or Alice and Khatru?

Compare that with your comment: "9 times out of 10 they tear into her"

Does that say anything to you? What will faith allow you to see? I'll bet that you still see the superiority of the Christian ethic, and that nothing could ever suggest differently, whatever you saw. When faith closes your mind to reason and evidence, it stays closed for as long as you keep the faith.

Hi Annie,
Awesome post. Nobody never knows what may happen from day to day. We all could end up homeless some day and I hope people that see me will see me through YOUR eyes and heart. I am quite aware that you left religion but you sure see things through the eyes of God a lot more than some who still profess their religion. Thank you for being who you are. Your views on things light up this forum most of the time. God Bless You

But why put down Christians?
This isn't going to be another one of those huge double standards is it?
Not at all.

People are born Mexican. And you didn't just put down Mexico as a terrible place to be. You denigrated the people. Go look at what you wrote.

Christianity is a belief system, and I feel comfortable criticizing it and those who belong to it voluntarily.

This is not going to be one of those huge discussions with Skom.

That actually isn't what it means

It means they are judging as hypocrites because they are judging those for doing the same things they are doing. Therefore if they are condemning others for doing what they are doing then they are condemning themselves

It doesn't mean you are guilty of whatever you judge someone else to be doing

I am only correcting this so it will be correct

It really isn't meant as personal but I can't be responsible for how it is taken. But i am saying up front it isn't meant as personal

Should i have said "temporarily housing displaced"?

Annie, as much as the political correctness for show is appreciated, it really isn't necessary. I would never treat someone on the street disrespectfully. In fact i have gone out of my way many times to help specifically people in that situation. I simply am not going to tailor my speech in an Internet-chat room because people like to score points on being disingenuous. The only reason "bum" is offensive is if you choose to make it so. I find your term of homeless offensive because it implies anyone without a house isn't as valuable a human being and it shows how this country puts emphasis on material things. See how I can play those games too? But i won't because that would be the actual insulting thing to use the situation, making titles of more relevance than people because we are trying to maneuver in a chat-room. I will let my actions do the talking when it comes to society. People can play all the games they want in here with words

Um...you have already shown why

For many of you, they take your route where you turn a blind eye to each other's actions because it is much smarter to you to make an ally than to be ethical

You guys never correct each other so how could you have to worry about it getting nasty?

Like i said, because a group of people gang-raping some girl are in agreement and don't fight it is not proof of their ethical superiority

And you have proven time and time again your personal ethics are those of a bigot

You right it isn't

I don't waste my time with hypocritical, double standard discussions and you would lose it

If i say for instance living in a hot, dry, dusty desert would be a terrible place to live, am I putting down all the people that live there or saying that the place itself is terrible? In Mexico you can't even drink the water without getting sick

Now you on the other hand have constantly approved of making terrible, denigrating remarks about millions upon millions of people knowing absolutely knowing about them personally other than they consider themselves Christians

You really want to keep having this discussion because I understand why you wouldn't. I certainly see no reason to continue

Man I love these double standards

BTW, do you (or you Annie) find the term "beach-bum" offensive?

That was all you! You wrote both parts and got your quotes wrong
So when you were copying the text, you responded to your own questions by making cricket sounds and saying ouch!
You're really quite linguistically impaired, aren't you? I responded to you, not me.

And no, that wasn't all me. You changed something there that significantly changes the meaning of that verbal string.

I make plenty of mistakes on Topix, but they're pretty much all editing errors - nothing substantive. My facts are correct.

And you picked a bad time to be doing this. It's your mistake again - another failure to understand what you read, and even more remarkably, a failure to even copy-and-paste adequately. It's a visible illustration of the way information processing proceeds in your head when reading.
