What are your thoughts on what Salinger had to say about personal hygiene phonies like Toby and homosexuals like Rosa Winkel.

No you're right Sky-god doesn't force or coerce anyone to follow him Sky- God just terrorizes and intimidates them with threats of eternal torture and torment so that many will (out of fear) follow him. God also doesn't force anyone to change their behavior, Sky-God just threatens them with plaques, famines, stoning's, etc., that wouldn't dare interfere with (free will) would it? There are three religious mafias, the Yahweh mafia, the Jesus Mafia, and the Muslim mafia
.
All three religious mafias provide some form of protection racket from the wrath of their bosses.
These are not "empty threats"....they are warnings of what is going to happen, if they "choose" to reject the Divine Guidance.

Despite all these stern warnings, majority of people do not heed to Divine Warnings.

They have themsleves to be blamed and not the God.

There is no ambiguity in the Divine Warning.

Do you mean to say it would be "fair" if God did not warn people and say only goody, goody things and say "Nothing matters" if you choose to accept Guidance or reject it, and then on the Hareafter catch the violators?

Sorry I was thinking he committed suicide, didn't even take note that you said accident. I don't believe in predestination, several small changes of events would have changed the results of that day and changed the unfortunate accident. If he would have overslept of been sick or preoccupied himself with anything just for a small amount of time, or had a headache, etc..
Now any omniscient and omnipotent being could have made minor changes that would have changed the chain of events that day, but once again God either doesn't exist, or is apathetic, or doesn't interfere in human affairs, but we know that God is claimed in he Bible to interfere in many human events so we are left with two possibilities.
God doesn't exist, or God is apathetic
No problem, you are entitled to your opinion as I am to mine. Have a good day.

You failed at marriage. Your relationship doesn't get you half way back to fail. You are headed in the wrong direction...

So with that valuable information, can we assume that you make a point of abstaining from anal sex?

Which, of course, means nothing at all, except to someone who is raised in Islam or indoctrinated into Islam at some later time. For the rest it is just another man-made religion. Sadly a huge number of people in the world, even in this advanced age of the 21st century still follow old religions based on the fables and traditions of ancient peoples.

I have a sister-in-law who is Muslim, so I mean no disrespect to the people other than I would also have for anyone of any other faith. If they live a good life, and harm no one, then all the more power to them.

Would it not, though, make a whole lot more sense, if instead of basing so much of our lives on beliefs, supported by absolutely not a shred of evidence, that we used the massive amounts of knowledge that humanity has acquired to make this a better and safer world for everyone?

Yet Mo didn't pass the test of a true Prophet. The truth is that Mo is the only prophet that you follow, That's why ISlam has so many terrorist like MO. Mo was a terrorist that is now resting in hell.

Mug,

When are you going to apologize to Christians for the cowardly Islamic slaughter of women and children the the Kenyan Mall?

Or the Satanic murder of sleeping Christian students in Nigeria???

You silence only confirms your approval of such barbarity.

Perhaps you can present a reasoned response to this;

Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.

A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.

Smirk.

That is a rather nice little comment that likely is used at some weddings. I find it very inspiring. It was written by a human being, expressing what marriage means to him/her. How do you want a marriage of a man and a woman to equate to a marriage of two same sex people? Except for the two of them producing a child with both of their genes, they have all the other aspects of marriage.

Does a marriage of two people who love each other and wish to spend their lives together affect you, in any way, except if you are one of those two people? If so, how does it affect you?

Approximately, 1/2 of all heterosexual marriages end in divorce in the western world today, so it appears that that form of marriage carries with it a lot of pitfalls too. One of those would be the children whose homes are disrupted when their parents separate/divorce.

My son has been married twice within 7 years, and had two children from each of those marriages, plus he gained a step son in his second marriage. He is now separated (possibly divorced) from his second wife, and lives with a co-worker who has never been married or had children before. That necessitates his seeing two of his children who live over 3 hours fast driving from him, every other weekend, and two of them plus the step son, possibly more often as they are nearby, at the moment.

I am in my second marriage, and 3rd relationship since 2000 (the first marriage lasted 31 years before separation, from age 22, the second relationship lasted 6 years ended by her wanting another man, and the current marriage has lasted over 7 years with over 8 years together, and will last until one of us dies - I am nearly 67 and she just turned 66). These were all heterosexual relationships (I don't even know any married gay people. In fact, at the present time I am not in contact with anyone that I know to be gay). I have had gay people connected to my life in some manner in the past, friends, teacher, pharmacist - all very nice people. My current wife's youngest brother was married to a woman with two gay brothers.

How will the world be a better place if all gay marriages are banned? How will that be a lot better than say banning all wars (most of which are somehow connected with the USA)?

Aside from the nice touchy feely part of that little verse you quoted, what is all that miraculous about a heterosexual marriage? If fairly young, almost all people getting married do not know the full impact of what they are doing, because their actions have been driven by lust, the excitement of getting married, all the trappings of a wedding. If young people were schooled heavily in how to live life, before they married, with the wisdom of what older people have already experienced, a great deal of those marriages would never happen.

I think procreation is miraculous, and absolutely necessary for the continuation of our species of animals, as with all animals, but many heterosexual marriages today decide not to procreate, and some gay marriages produce a child either by one of the females becoming pregnant, or through adoption, and they can provide a far better and stable home for the child, then a bad heterosexual marriage, or a broken heterosexual marriage, if they are as committed to that as all married people should be.

Can you tell me how gay marriages will affect you in any manner? We have had legal gay marriages here for a number of years, and I have not had a single bit of my life that has been altered in any way. The only thing I can connect to is the minister who married me and my current wife, had her first wedding in her church as ours and she later had the first gay wedding in her church, but we were not involved nor even living near that church at the time.

In intelligence, I suspect I am rated much higher than you, not that I consider that an important thing, just as long as a person uses what IQ they have to the best of their ability. As for my question, how does anal sex, if someone else does it, affect you? I am not into that, but from what I have read of surveys, it is a major part of many heterosexual relationships.

Personally, I have a lot of hangups from my childhood, around anything to do with defecation, so I would not be interested in even exploring that as a possibility for me (some gay men do not engage in anal sex either). I even find the fact that we humans have to defecate as a definite sign that we are at the level of the most base of animals. Having said that, having suffered a serious bowel obstruction which necessitated emergency surgery and a loss of over one third of my lower bowel, I can appreciate what would happen if we could not or did not defecate (I lost a brother and grandfather due to bowel obstructions).

Vaginal sex also uses parts of the body which are used to eliminate wastes, so any hangups that people have around anal sex, should also extend to any contact with the parts of a human body which eliminates waste, and one part, the mouth which is the first opening of the alimentary track is one of the foulest parts of a human body, yet we seem to delight in touching other people with them, even innocent helpless little babies.
