Religitards are bad, but THE BIBLE is the bestest book ever created by GOD IN HEAVEN. And so I quote it daily. But not in a religitard way. Nope.

A Mystery in Father’s Clothing
By PHILIP GALANES
Published: June 13, 2013

I am a lesbian in my early 30s. Ever since I came out to my father several years ago, he has been pretty lousy about my sexuality: dismissive at first, then judgmental and condescending. That is, until he met his new girlfriend, who happens to have a gay son. Now, like magic, my partner and I are honored guests whenever we visit. I’d like to slap him across the face for his transparent, new acceptance. But I am hoping you have a better way to handle this.

Speaking of dads (it is Father’s Day, after all), mine was a relentless whistler: in the car, on the stairs, walking the dog around the block — like living with a teakettle. But it wasn’t until after he died that I learned the lyrics to his old-time ditties, one of which (courtesy of Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields) may be just right for you:“It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish. It’s not how you go, it’s where you land.”

Not so long ago (and certainly when your father was coming of age), being gay or lesbian didn’t exactly win you a round of applause in most quarters. Still, right-thinking folks opined that the key to greater acceptance would lie in everyday interactions with gay family members, co-workers and friends. That sounds exactly like what’s happening with your dad.

Perhaps he was slow to come around, or perhaps he’s trying to live up to his girlfriend’s example, or she gave him a stern talking-to. Maybe he’s a miserable homophobe in sheep’s clothing. We’ll never know. But he is treating you well now, is he not? So do nothing, except try to give him the benefit of the doubt. This is a fast-moving area, and he is your father. My hunch is that the more gay people he meets, the more he’ll see we are not “honored guests,” but just as great (and lousy) as everyone else he knows.

Lol, keep trying to imitate me, it's not working because you have to love the D as much as I do.
Wait,what?

You think a guy that uses a non-avatar post to say your avatar is stupid is trying to imitate you?

So that's what you do, denigrate your avatar?
So you don't like it, then just change it.
It's not rocket science.

Nah, you still don't get it, you're dumb as a dead weed. And half as interesting.
Well I must be pretty interesting considering you created an account in dedication of me. What do you say we go back to your place after this forum blows over and pro gay wins? I'll make you feel things you could only dream of.

Anyone 'innocent' judged by Islam.
Which means anyone not a Muslim.
Or a Muslim who isn't a Muslim like you.
Islam is a religion of murder and theft.
Innocent means any one who has not killed any one.

And any one (For Muslims only) that has not committed adultery.

And any one who has not done highway robbery.

And any one who has not caused rebellion and taken arms against the established ruler in the land.

And any one (For Muslims only) who has not turned its back on Islam.

Except for these, every one is innocent.

And it is not for any individual Muslim to execute the justice. It has to be done on the orders of Islamic courts after due process of law.

Taking innocent human life is one of the Biggest of Big sins in Islam.

PS:

I did not see in this definition "Non Muslim"? Did you?

So the 9/11 attackers were sinners who went to hell?

So most of the killing you see across the Muslim world by Muslims is sin?

I'm supposed to trust Islamic courts as fair?

Those are just some of the things I 'see' in Islam.

A transexual transvestite lesbian old man who believes that his religion teaches him that he was born this way because he was a sinner before he was born has no right to judge other people's beliefs.

Who's judging beliefs?

I'm judging behavior.

You behave like an idiot.
