I do NOT persecute gays in any way. I'm simply posting my opinion here. I don't see why that's such a big damn deal. I don't have to like or accept anyone or anything. Just because you don't like it doesn't make me wrong.
For example, look at how much you shit talk Christians. You berate us & voice your opinion on how foolish you think we are AND how strange we are to you. Should you stop?
No.
That would negate your God given & America protected right to speak your mind freely. That's all I'm doing, speaking my mind.
Why us that so wrong?
The act of expressing your opinion is not wrong, but denigrating and discriminating against gays, because they have a different sexual orientation, is wrong, and that is what you are promoting.

Great Q's Tam!
I've tried thinking of a "special right" that LGBT folks promote, but in honesty, I can't think of any.
Well, maybe one - the "T" folks - its get a little wishy-washy when you think about non-unisex restrooms.
;o)
But wouldn't that make public washrooms more like your own washroom at home, or do you have separate restrooms in your home too, for male and female? While I don't particularly want to watch women peeing and having bowel movements in a public place, it is really not an issue, except if one decides to make it one, because most people tend to want to have some privacy even within their own sex.

Kitten, can you accept that you are probably coming at this from being in a profession that works in the field of expertise that you are talking about, while I am just a person who does not believe in a god, does not like bullying, does not think parents should teach their kids to hit bullies, because violence doesn't cure violence?
My first wife's major at university to get her science degree, I think, was child and family studies, or something along that line, but mine wasn't, though my hobby since soon after graduating was to do with psychology, and I went through meany years of wanting to read about the current psychology of the times.
However, in replying to your comment in the previous to this post, about a professional without children often knows more about kids than do parents, yes that is true, and that is what my wife and I thought, and we had great plans for how we were going to raise our kids differently than we had been raised based on popular ideas of our time, but when the children came, reality took over and some of the ideals and plans got lost.
It is one thing to know the hows and whys, but to actually be with your own child 24/7, dealing with their various problems on a daily basis, plus having your own personal issues to deal with too, you often find out that theory and fact don't always mesh.
Disclaimer: That fact and theory comment does not apply when we are talking evolution.
The problem is when you are dealing with your own children, your decisions and actions are clouded by emotion, you lost objectivity and become emotionally attached to the situation as you are to the child. This causes errors in judgment, and distorts your perception of the situations.

My background is schooling in handling developmentally disabled children in an educational setting. I don't mention it much, mostly because it doesn't come up. Originally it was a class for an "easy credit" but turned into much more. I hate seeing people be bullies as much as I hate seeing them bullied, it hurts to see a child so messed up in the head to become a bully, because I know where the problem lies, it's the parents, it's always the parents. Some parents realize their mistakes and work to try to correct them when they find out their kids are bullies, but most don't care or they encourage the behavior instead of addressing their bad parenting. But it's always the parents.

Apparently the good people that post here are too involved in their petty little squabbles to even take notice of my thoughtfull and refreshing post but-heere goes #2-The other version is that before and with no beginning or end GOD AM!Then he made all the spirit beings including Lucifer. Then sometime after his creation Lucifer seeks to be above and beyond GOD AM and makes war on GOD AM but is defeated and cast down to earth.(with all of "his" angels which it says in the book of Revelation is 1/3rd of the entire population of all angels.)GOD AM makes Earth and sooner or later puts or somehow makes it so humans eventually live there and take physical control of the whole planet. But in the meantime Man is seduced by Satan in the form of a serpent and loses spiritual control of Earth and Satan becomes our master.Now cut off from GOD AM and put in a finite position Man seems doomed BUT! The Son of GOD AM Jesus becomes a living breathing human from birth to death (33yrs) He becomes the sacrifice needed to re-attain our connection with GOD AM -He takes away all of our sins that we knowingly and unknowingly commit that would leave us locked out of GOD AMs Domain (Heaven) Jesus provides the way in a world gone bad through free will and ignorance our loving GOD AM has provided the way without giving in to Satan and thereby remaining without sin or untruth or any blemish.Truly the work and plan od our Father GOD AM is a wondwer to take in ! Read the bible to get a grip on the way it is Godless you all...

Why do you think that keeping a soul conscious forever just to suffer rather than letting it fade to unconsciousness is love? Who benefits from that?

How does torture keep re-entering in a discussion of perfect love? I am concerned about the model of love offered in Christianity.

And I am not responsible for any sin nature that I might have been created with. Obviously, according to the religion, man is not capable of avoiding sin if every one of us has done it beginning with the first pair.

Should I blame my dog for its shoe chewing nature that it was born with? Should I keep it alive to torture for eternity just for doing what dogs have always done and are born wanting to do? How about if I had designed and built the dog?

How about a crying baby. Should I command the baby to never cry, and torture it when it fails?

Not the ones he gave reason to. If your god exists, we are doomed, since he apparently went out of his way to trap such reasonable people.

He wrote a book full of errors and self-contradiction to make reasonable people believe that it is a forgery.

He loaded the earth with fossils stratified into a geological column, fused human chromosome 2 to make it look like man evolved from brachiating apes,and carefully designed ERV's, proteins, and anatomic structures as nesting hierarchies all to trip up the reasonable people that could understand what those findings imply.

If your god exists, he made coming to that realization impossible for me. The only way I could join you is to deny the reason I was born with.

Galileo spoke for me when he said,“I do not think it is necessary to believe that the same God who has given us our senses, reason, and intelligence wished us to abandon their use, giving us by some other means the information that we could gain through them”

THAT IS LOVE........love like you have ever known, nor will ever know. God is good. He loves you even while you are a sinner.
It's indistinguishable from indifference and neglect. Consider the Garden, the tree and the snake. Creating a situation like that is called depraved indifference in American law:

"To constitute depraved indifference, the defendant's conduct must be 'so wanton, so deficient in a moral sense of concern, so lacking in regard for the life or lives of others, and so blameworthy as to warrant the same criminal liability as that which the law imposes upon a person who intentionally causes a crime. Depraved indifference focuses on the risk created by the defendant’s conduct, not the injuries actually resulting." http://definitions.uslegal.com/d/depraved-ind...

If you leave your keys in the ignition of your car with it running, the front door open, a case of beer in the front seat, even if you leave a note of warning on the windshield to not steal it, then you can't successfully claim that the drunk driving death caused by the teen who stole it was not your fault. It is if the outcome is foreseeable. Did your god not know how that Garden scene would turn out?

If a child is raised in a culture where nudity in public is normal, it will not harm them at all.
Most people in history lived in one room homes - caves, igloos, teepees, whatever - and saw it all without harm. Children slept with parents who made love while they were under the same skins with them. They also saw people poop, pee, menstruate, give birth and die. No problem.

No, he was raised to be a Christian doormat. Christian ethics teach submission to Massah. That's why you are admonished to take whatever is dished out to you, and be grateful for the abuse when you do.

The Sermon on the Mount is a set of instructions from the ruling class to the peasant class on how to think and behave as they are being exploited and discriminated against.

Blessed, supposedly, are the poor in spirit, those who mourn, the meek, those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, the merciful, the pure in heart and the peacemakers. I find nothing wise or comforting in admonitions to be poor of spirit or meek. Be robust of spirit and as assertive as the situation requires.

Who wants you to accept being dispirited, tolerating grief, not asserting yourself, honest to them, forgiving of them and pacifistic with them? Who benefits if, when I punch you, you don't retaliate, defend yourself or even walk away? Cui bono?

The bosses don't want you seeking justice. You are to tolerate injustice, and be merciful to them, to forgive and forget. Put that cheek right out there again, will ya? No, not quite like that - turn it a little more. Great. Thanks.[Whack!]

Christianity promises to make it up to you in the afterlife. By tolerating all of this earthly abuse, you believe that you're earning brownie points to be redeemed postmortem, when all accounts will be settled, and you will be a king in a mansion! The promise is that if you put up with it here, in Heaven, at last, you won’t be a loser.

Meh.
