The 1st amendment limits your right to speak as it does mine.
I'm good with that. Are you?
In short no way. And if what comes next is the test the Supreme Court calls "clear and present danger I've heard it. If after the events that just came to light with the gov. targeting certain groups via irs don't know what to tell you. It takes it to another level imo. Look, many of the things posted in this very forum I can't stand. No doubt you feel the same but I hope nobody feels a threat from the gov to shut down speech. Nothing good will come of it. Latter. Off to spend some time with some veterans on this day.

They won't need to. We'll diminish your voice nonviolently, through attrition and stigma. Then we won't have to hear who Jesus hates.

Too bad your brothers didn't get your message of nonviolence.

If I hated you or was mean to you simply because of our differences than I wouldn't be much of a follower of Christ [...] A person who is nice to only those who are exactly like them are shallow and closed minded in my opinion. I am secure enough in my own beliefs and who I am in Christ that I can read the negative remarks and not retaliate with words of hate.
Good for you,and thanks again.

I think that I just told Here For Now more or less the same thing you just said in different words.

Why are you so nice to me when I am always posting scripture out of a book that you find repulsive?
That's easy: why wouldn't I be?

You have been more help than you might know. I realize that you did not post that to shame the Christians who can't do what you have done, and that you say that I have done: disagree about important ideas, yet maintain civility while doing it, so I won't use your words against them except to say that those who have failed to do this just don't measure up to your character. People like you and Al Garcia have my respect for who you are and the values you embody.

It was not written in Syriac.
Never mind. I thought I was helping and adding some pertinent information CJ(as I tried to explain). It appears you don't wish to accept that for what it is. I won't bother again, as it won't lead to anything except banter.

I think the 3D is worth the extra cost, so I'm gonna get a 3D TV when my house is done.

This is my favorite Star Trek movie, so far. I hope they make more. I started watching Voyager on Hulu a few nights ago. They only have the first season though.

I have to accept the fact that I'm kind of a Trekkie.
My other half loved it, he's a huge geek for the name and the genre.
I went for the fact that JJ Abrams directed it, that Benedict Cumberbatch had a major role in it, and of course because my fiance wanted me to go with him.

I actually loved it, even though I'm not a fan of many of the shows/movies of that genre (space). I liked it mainly because there was so much action, and also a story everyone could enjoy which was well done.

The only other space show I watch is Doctor Who, but that's an exception to the rule.

As you wish.

The point was the Hellenization of the Jesus movement, witnessed, in part, by the language of the New Testament -- Koine Greek.

By the way, Jesus and his followers likely spoke Aramaic, not Syriac, though the languages are closely related.

Today's Prayer
Dear God, Thank you so much that you are there for me always; that if I stumble and fall, I will fall into your grace. I praise you, my rescuer and one who loves me more than life. I bow before you in prayer, with a humble spirit and grateful heart. You are my stability in a world gone mad, my comfort when my heart is sad, the sunshine in every day. And on this day, Memorial Day, I remember all the brave people who have given their lives for freedom, for what is good and right. Please bless their families; give them comfort and peace, and a feeling of joy and contentment in knowing their loved one gave the ultimate sacrifice for a just cause. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
Prime time with God
Amen :)

Don't be that way, Annie. That's not what I said or meant.

You went on at great length about how you didn't want to fight this battle against the homophobes, and you did so in a way that seemed to disapprove of those of us that did - language suggesting that such behavior was wrong.

Regarding doing battle, you wrote,

"I do not want to look in to that abyss and see myself staring back at me. I do not want to become that which I deplore" and "My son deserves better than that from me"

You're implying there that people engaged in this struggle are becoming like those that they deplore, and that people deserve better than that. If you didn't mean that, my apologies.

But that is what I understood your comment to mean, I disagreed, and I was concerned that you might influence Lacez and others to stand down and be more like you. Your way is fine for you, but will accomplish nothing for anybody else, and I wanted him to feel good about what he was doing despite your words.

Better?
Don't worry, I feel just fine about what I'm doing. Have you seen the latest "conversation" I've had with Lawlest?
I'm being entirely civil, not throwing a single insult his way, and he can't help but throw at least one in every post.

That's not true. AnnieJ will help her son in the way that she can and the way that she has.

As I told somebody else recently. We are not to be protected any longer. We are to be feared. We will not back down. We will not retreat. We will shove Leviticus straight up your ass with one hand and wipe your tears with the other.

We are young, we are vocal, we are skilled and we are not afraid.
HERE HERE!
I'll drink to that!

<quoted text>Just the earth and everything living on it in an apocalyptic catastrophe.

Are you suggesting that your timeless, perfect and unchanging god outgrew his violent genocidal rages?

There is no way to divorce your religion from death and violence, however many times your god is said to change its mind.
What would make a god change his mind? Measly little humans that are his creations?
When you build something with LEGOs, and intend to destroy it, you don't look at all the tiny plastic blocks and say "on second thought."

No, you just smash the living crap out of it.
