Suicide: the intentional killing of oneself.

Jesus intentionally had himself killed on the cross. He let it happen and WANTED it to happen, according to your bible, to die for people's sins.

He committed suicide for everyone.

<quoted text>I do recall months and months of Happy Lesbo whining about her hot button issues, which she had brought up, being brought up again. The internet is probably as foreign experience for Happy Lesbo as it was for Catcher, and she can learn to adapt to it or not. And if not, then she can either sign off or continue to be outraged.
Thanks, and please keep me apprised of everything that you recall.

What sock were you posting under during those months and months?

<quoted text>Yeah. It is.

Jumping in front of a train is suicide.
Pointing an empty gun at a cop is suicide.
Confessing to murders you didn't commit is suicide.
Committing a crime that you know has the death penalty and then turning yourself in is suicide.
etc.
Yup, though RR has his daffynitions, so...

Then what say you now to the "cure" of homophobia, like a cure for smallpox?
That would remove a person's human right to choice.
I mean, you wrote "I only care when a person inflicts their choice unto me by telling me what my choice should be"
That goes all the way around, affecting everybody and everything.
Nobody *has to* feel at ease with homosexuality, right? Just as no one should tell women that they can't get an abortion because their choices somehow supersede yours.
.. how about genetic manipulation to cure homophobia ??..

<quoted text>That's what Hiding just told him. Here's what I told him:

“I always flinch in embarrassment for the believer who trots out,“Atheism is just another kind of faith,” because it’s a tacit admission that taking claims on faith is a silly thing to do. When you’ve succumbed to arguing that the opposition is just as misguided as you are, it’s time to take a step back and rethink your attitudes.”- Amanda Marcotte
I love that quote, I really do.

<quoted text>That IS my point.

Just as smallpox is natural, so is homophobia.

Am I wrong?

[QUOTE] Not without help.
Homophobia is a creation of human culture. It is an irrational and unjust idea that hurts people. It doesn't get into heads until it is put there. I would bet that deaf and blind people are never homophobic unless you can find some way to inject that idea into their heads anyway - maybe with braille."

Pure speculation, a non-answer.
Not speculation; fact.
Same thing with racism.
It is a taught behaviour.

Thanks for that, but so what? How does that support your "No"? Who do you think is sending souls to hell and why?

And how is Jesus turning the other cheek here? It seems like hell the harshest revenge possible.

Just because you don't like the implications of Christian theology and are able to ignore them yourself doesn't mean that you can make them vanish for unbelievers lacking your confirmation bias with a "No" and an irrelevant citation.

What does genetics have to do with the fact that I find anyone making out in public (whether they be straight, gay, or lesbian) gross?
The same thing genetics has to do with your hair color, presence (or lack of) meat and you sexual preference.

<quoted text>So, you are saying that all gays are homophobic and compared to a disease...okay..I think we can agree on that.
Do you think drugs will help gays? Maybe therapy, or electro-shock? We have basically eradicated smallpox in the US so maybe there is hope for the homosexual person also.
Maybe drug therapy and electroshock will help you. But I doubt it.

Where'd you get THAT definition?

Suicide is the act of killing oneself intentionally.

What Jesus did was sacrifice, not suicide.

Just like a soldier that takes a bullet or jumps on a grenade to save his troops.

Suicide is killing yourself cause you're emo or gay or broke or something and you just can't take it anymore.

Sacrifice is dying for the good of another.

Suicide is pointless. Sacrifice is honorable.

Another information-packed post from you.

You've got to put more effort into it if you want to be taken seriously. As it is, your sock is just phoning it in for you.

I'm about one more post like this from converting from light-hearted ridicule mode trying to elicit something better from you to contempt mode.

You are horrible at reading plain English. I didn't mention your father at all.

----------

You clearly wrote "your father" in your first posting, and then you are saying you didn't mention "your father" at all. I think you are your own worst problem and that you love arguing with people thinking it gives you a status of satisfaction at being right.
Exactly, you clearly would leave out the second part:

"You mean "treatment" like making you bathe with your father?
You're sick.
You know the failure rate is 99%, right?
That's why Exodus International shut down."

See where I mentioned "treatment"?
That was in direct referral to the different "treatments" that Exodus International deployed, which I mentioned right afterwords.

Look here at Serah the Liar!
Let me repeat:
I WAS NOT TALKING ABOUT YOUR FATHER AT ALL.

Is that clear enough for you?
Or will you continue to play the victim, lying about how it's IANS's fault that you didn't talk to Andrew and how I'm insulting your father, against all facts and reality?

I will reiterate:
You are despicable, lower than dirt, and have a disgusting character.

.. it's easy to see why you interpreted Lacez's post that way ..

.. you were debating Exodus and Lacez was referring to one of their conversion therapies: having teenage gays bathe with their fathers ..
Serah is lying like the bigot she is.
She truly is a wonderful piece of dung.

IF the homophobia leads to discrimination, I agree with you, in that they are similar in damaging thoughts that lead to innocent people being hurt.

But disliking (or fearing) homosexuality is not the same as discriminating against it.

Does that make sense?

See GOD's post, it's still suicide.
