<quoted text>Yeah, it's possible life could exist out there... but so far in our own vast solar system there are no "concrete" signs of life? Obviously I believe in life in the spiritual dimension.
So how much longer do you have to take the treatments?
I start the third drug in 3 weeks. 4 weeks after that they will know if it is working. If it is working I will be on the meds for 36 to 46 weeks.

They obey commands, as they interpret them.

For what purpose did Christ come into the world.
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation the Christ Jesus come into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.1 Timothy 1:15
Amen... beautiful avatar by the way.

Paul still felt the sting of his past life before accepting Christ... he persecuted the Church initially and many were inflicted under his leadership. Our past faults come back to haunt us from time to time but still yet, through Christ we are forgiven.

I don't get it
Its not like someone refused to serve bacon and eggs to someone because of skin color
They are demanding someone accept a job and forcing him to use his craft in a way he is not comfortable with
If artists don't get to refuse a job based on content then the whole world has gone crazy
Maybe I should be able to go to a guy who does sculptures and demand he depict a scene of someone in a wheelchair having a sexually suggestive act performed on them by a 100 year old man. Hey, it would be legal. And why should the guy I hire have any say in whether he accepts the job or what kind of job I can force him to take?
Providing goods is something that should be to everyone. Providing most services should be the same. But not when it is someone doing themes in an art setting as an individual contractor. Refusing service is very different than forcing someone to take a job they aren't comfortable with on moral grounds. What if he was asked to take pictures at NAMBLA. He should be forced to go?
Ridiculous
You're losing it, Skom. You're starting to sound like RR. What's with the sex stuff?

These people are wedding photographers. They can not say in their advertisements, "WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY. We only shoot White People's Weddings." That's discriminatory and it's against the law.

I can't believe the answers we're seeing from the religious on here. I feel like I owe IANS an apology.
If they were in charge, god, all non-Christians would suffer.
It is a shame that a vocal minority can horribly stain the reputations of 1.5 billion people.

It's besides the point. The point is I gave no problem with any person or their beliefs bring held up to scrutiny, even my own. I just want that scrutiny to be based on what I actually believe. And the same standard should be used for others
That's fair right?
You specifically said:

You are quite clearly judging others on how they know the Bible. Since I don't know where you got your "knowledge of the Bible" from, I can only assume that you're judging their knowledge according to what you believe is accurate.

In other words, if someone disagrees with you about the Bible, you will claim that they "do not know their Bible."

Did Christ know beforehand the treatment He was to receive.
Then He took unto Him the twelve and said unto them, behold we go up to Jerusalem and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. For He shall be delivered unto the Gentiles and shall be mocked and spitefully entreated and spitted on; and they shall scourge Him and put Him to death. Luke 18:31-33.
But yet, nothing in the Roman archives mention this.
Just like nothing is mentioned in the ancient Egyptian texts about Jews being slaves in Egypt and the mass exodus.

But hey, they are entertaining stories.

Absolutely, and so you should. However if you confuse that clear minority with the majority, you are only doing your position harm.
Agreed!
I have no problem with Christians. I have a problem with the hateful and immoral groups and individuals that call themselves Christians.

For the child porn room, yes I'd definately call the police.
But for the S&M room? I wouldn't even give them a bid. I'd pass on the job.
And you'd call that dicrimination.
People who practice S&M aren't a protected class. You can turn down any job you want to as long as it doesn't break the laws against discrimination.

And you're not?? Lol, ok.
<quoted text>
You mean I should use it exactly how you do.
<quoted text>
Well there it is.
I don't see any reason for this debate to continue. From your own definition, any location or business is a relevant definition of somebody who is a professional. That is not limited to teachers and nurses and professors and lecturers and dentists as you would like to think. An air conditioning repair man is a professional, a mechanic is a professional, a carpenter or a contractor is a professional.
Buy your own definition, "any location or business".
Do you know what the definition of "vocation" is?
<quoted text>
Like a mechanic or a plumber.
Unless of course you think a mechanic or plumber doesn't require specialized training and they don't supply service to others....
Not a single person is surprised that, out of the 16 definitions I listed, out of the numerous sites, including a list, that I posted, you chose one colloquial meaning to justify your indignation.

So I'm using the word correctly when I describe the professions and you just don't like it for your ego's sake.

Let's take a look at your angry, bitter ignorance:
I don't understand why you think speaking to a bunch of college kids is more professional than repairing HVAC units.
1. lecturers, professors, don't "speak to college" kids for their job. You're attempting to downplay university education. Why? A little envious? Jealous? Sour grapes much?

2. And I've already explained to you, ad nauseam why the professions are called such - and I've listed the historical reasons over and over.

If you don't get it by now it's because you're choosing ignorance to cover up for your insecurity.

You're skilled labor. Not a professional. Get over it and stop demeaning yourself.

How did you make it to middle to late ages with such deep insecurity?

That is quite disturbing that an all powerful deity that could change the Universe in an instant decided instead to murder his only child to make himself forgive humans for being exactly what it made them.
Yep, Ben God loved you enough to give his only Son so you could stand a chance at being saved and possible have everlasting life forever.

So tell me Ben what does a father give to his child and just how deep does that love run. God cup over flowed with love for all in this world could anyone of us measure up to that kind of love.

You are a poster boy for Bigoted Hypocrites.
A few years ago I was in need of a contractor's services. Out of the four I called to bid on the job, two of them politely turned the job down due to the fact that they were out of their league and the job required more expertise than they had acquired. I thanked them for their honesty and integrity for not bidding on a job that was clearly over their heads. They absolutely had the right to not take the job...

<quoted text>They enslaved each other mostly... also:
"The sale of European slaves by Europeans slowly ended as the Slavic and Baltic ethnic groups Christianized by the Late Middle Ages. European slaves in the Islamic World would however, continue into the Modern time period as Muslim pirates, primarily Algerians, with the support of the Ottoman Empire, raided European coasts and shipping from the 16th to the 19th centuries"
Perhaps the Mongols enslaved whites also as Ghenghis Khan in his generals went westward.

Sure, sure. None of what you wrote disqualifies my statement, so I'm not sure where you're going with this.
