The Son of "True Love" Christian Song Ministry



"I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
through all generations.

...I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself."

Psalm 89:1-2

__________

"Over the mountains and the sea
Your river runs with love for me
And I will open up my heart
And let the Healer set me free
I'm happy to be in the truth
And I will daily lift my hands
For I will always sing
Of when Your love came down

I could sing of Your love forever
I could sing of Your love forever
I could sing of Your love forever
I could sing of Your love forever

Oh I feel like dancing
It's foolishness I know
But when the world has seen the light
They will dance with joy like we're dancing now"

I could sing of Your love... forever!

Uhm...what did you say about bigotry again? What was it that you claimed you don't do?
Something like "it's not fair to judge all individuals based on their group affiliation."
Isn't that what you claimed?
You just wrote:

"A contractor can avoid work very easily:

- claim the job is too dangerous
- put in an outrageously high bid"

Do you agree with scar, just lie about it.

Your both atheists.

It's the atheist way.

That's cute. It's interesting how fast mythologies develop around new products of culture.

Thanks. Very helpful. Those were new terms for me.
No problem. If they're new for you, they'll most certainly be new for those linking homosexuals to the KKK and NAMBLA groups.

But I have full confidence that once they understand the differences between ascribed and achieved statuses, they'll retract their earlier statements and issue an apology to the gays and lesbians who peruse and sometimes post on this thread.

You know what's interesting, and BenAdam alluded to this - the protection of religions (b/c of the protection from religious prosecution) works to protect achieved status.

That is a conundrum for lawmakers - how can they justify protecting religious groups but not, say, KKK or NAMBLA?

The problem is that everyone from the KKK, NAMBLA and WBC to the homophobic photographer and her supporters all claim to be doing "morally good" things.
Morality is a poor scale for judgement. Harm and equality are measurable and unchanging.
Good point. I thought you wrote "Ham and equity" and I was like "huh?"

1. You wrote to Scar before I wrote that. So you had bigotry on your mind before you read my words.
2. Even if Scar and I both agree that people can display complex behavior, that doesn't mean that "lying is the atheist way."

3. Since you uphold that "lying is the atheist way" you, RR, are a bigot.

There you go, categorizing us all the same again.
I was invited to a church multiple times while doing my MA in the USA. I lived near campus, the Church was on the same street. To entice people in, they offered free lunches on Thursdays. Most of my dormmates went.
So, finally I went, too. An old man sat down beside me and asked "what denomination are you?"
"I don't have one. I'm an atheist."
Wow. He was all kinds of angry. His wife came, along with a few others, and they had to pull him away from the table.
I was very hesitant after that, to go again, but they kept insisting. They told me no one would bother me - this turned out to be a lie. I was cornered and talked to about atheism for 2 hours. I could have left, but you know how I like to argue.
Anyways, two of my bad experiences at church.
If you go looking for a fight, you'll likely find one.

No you wouldn't. You would charge Christians an extra 25% just because they're Christians.

And you're a coward. The gist of my post was how you and Skom are ignoring ascribed versus achieved status so that you dishonestly compare the KKK to homosexuality.
You didn't address that because my argument is sound.

Immoral?

On what moral grounds would you charge Christians 25% more than you would atheists?

my·thol·o·gy (m-thl-j)
n. pl. my·thol·o·gies
1.
a. A body or collection of myths belonging to a people and addressing their origin, history, deities, ancestors, and heroes.
b. A body of myths associated with an event, individual, or institution: "A new mythology, essential to the ... American funeral rite, has grown up" (Jessica Mitford).
2. The field of scholarship dealing with the systematic collection and study of myths.
No two ways about it, the Bible is mythology. And Christians have, within their mythology, an apical ancestor.
Thank you for sharing that you, too, think it's mythology.

I don't condone rape or child molestation. That is why I capitalized CONSENTING ADULTS.
In the USA the laws vary from state to state.
The penalties range from "not even a crime" to life imprisonment.
There are no Federal Laws against it.
All U.S. incest laws are based on religious beliefs.
What's your feeling about incest regarding consenting adults?

Bigot, I didn't go looking for a fight. I was invited and I went reluctantly. They reassured me no one would attack me and their reassurances were false - I was attacked for my honesty.

If I were bigoted like you, I'd write "that's Christians for you." But I'm not. I wouldn't accuse all Christians of being liars unless I was also accusing all people of being liars.

I see.

So you, along with all your atheist friends, are perfectly fine with charging Christians an extra 25%.

Good to know.

Christianity is mythology. Like all believers in every religion you "know" you have the "one true religion" and "gosh, it can't be mythology like all the other ones."

Because you're a believer you are incapable of rationally examining your own religion. But you're quite capable of critically examining other religions, their worldviews and claims.
