<quoted text>I must state again that I do agree with you. Emotions are emotions- neither good or bad but simply what they are.
However, certain emotions can lead to negative behavior just as certain emotions can lead to positive behavior.
So it's not emotions which are positive or negative; rather, it is the actions that are a result of emotions which can be deemed as positive or negative.
Yup. Just as a rainy day isn't necessarily "gloomy". It depends on how it's perceived.

In the Star Wars world, emotions are used - even 'neagative' ones: "Your hate has made you powerful"

Holding hands is not shoving it in our faces.
Gay pride parades with people dressed nearly naked and acting sexual, with sexual themed floats, and no worries of the cops stopping them from breaking the law.
"Coming out day" and clubs for KIDS at schools.
Acting excessive in public.
Displaying placards, stickers, shirts and jewelry stating you are gay,etc. Like anyone but them really cares. Yesterday I saw a bastardized rainbow American flag sticker on some little car with a total flamer at the wheel.
People publicly declaring it on national TV, youtube, etc like anyone but them really gives a shit.
Gays would probably get more recognition & a good status if they acted with a little more restraint like the rest of us do. And no, I'm not talking about the absurdities that happen at things like Mardi gras, I'm talking about everyday life.
There's no "Hetero sex, FTW!" stickers...
There's no "We're here and we're straight!" stickers...
But you have no problem with TV shows which glorify heterosexuality, huh and which are often very risque, do you?

Sorry, RR- I have known a LOT of gay people in my life; one showing restraint or not about their sexuality is not determined by if they are gay or straight.

BTW, there need not be any "we're here and we're straight" stickers since it is not heterosexuals as a group who are persecuted and discriminated against for being who and what they are.

You could apply all you say here to ANY minority and something tells me that you do sad as that is.

found out why you think the way you do.

Apparently in the UK they are persecuting Christians and have an
"Amorality" discriminate against religious believers.

Just read a news article about 3 current cases there
where a lady (Shirley Chaplin) was fired from her job for wearing a cross around her neck.

(Gary mcFarlane) was fried for refusing to counsel same sex couples.

(Lillian Ladele) was fired for refusing to officiate same sex couples in marriage ceremonies.

i guess in the UK people are not allowed to 'live their faith' openly or freely.
that explains alot about why you express the view that you do on here.

HAHA! Are you really that naive?
People get welfare so easily, when asked if they're looking for work a simple "yes" gives them another paycheck...
And 99 month unemployment? WTF is that?! What good citizen would accept that?
A citizen who has to feed their family and themselves and who cannot find a job, that's who.

Geez.......

And back up what you claim about people getting welfare so easily. You throw out these statements without even one source or statistic to back them up.

BTW, it is NOT that those on welfare have to be LOOKING for work; it is that they HAVE to be working in order to qualify- did you not READ the information I posted for you?

Sometimes I find rainy days to be very comforting and pleasant; maybe that's because here in the Sunshine State (VERY aptly named) our cloudy and "gloomy" days are few and far between so if nothing else, I always find those days to be a welcome change of pace.

As a matter of fact, we just had 4 or 5 cloudy days in a row- very unusual for here and all the more since only a smattering of rain accompanied the clouds.

And.....it's all what you get used to- as much as I enjoy a cloudy and rainy day from time to time, the last several days was getting to be a bit much.

It was lovely to wake up this morning to a beautiful sun-kissed Florida day!

OCB agreed with you on that.

I suspect you must have perfect children who never vent their frustrations on the world around them?

http://www.cdl.org/resource-library/articles/...

Many adopted kids suffer from negative emotions caused by over-reactive, older, perfectionist parents. Adoptive parents tend to have trouble bonding with, or developing a synergistic feeling towards children not genetically their own. The kids feel alienated by the lack of natural affection and "act out".

Sometimes, having "good intentions" just isn't enough.

No, because their agenda isn't to "glorify heterosexuality".

I've known only one gay guy in my life that I'd call a "normal gay guy". He doesn't flaunt his gayness to world, he doesn't give a crap if you know what his sexual preference is. I didn't even know he was gay until my he & my wife were talking about relationships. She works with him, he's cool as can be.

Homosexuals aren't a minority, they're not a race, they're not held down by society....

Dumb ass, they've got a guaranteed paycheck for 99 months - why would they look for work?

I'll tell you what type of people get a 99 month unemployment paycheck, people like my little brother, who got fired for smoking pot on the job. He takes his unemloyment check & buys more pot. What a wonderful arrangment he has...

It's called PRIDE in home ownership- something you know NOTHING about in your ugly double-wide.

Even though my kids are perfect, they still vent their frustrations. Why wouldn't they?

"Our thoughts and emotions can strongly affect motivation. Motivation is a drive or desire that compels us to do something.... They may think too much about personal problems and focus on the negative. In this situation, their emotions affected or caused their negative thoughts."

I agree with that. Sometimes even the terrible emotion of jealousy can spur something good - it all depends on how someone handles their emotions. Will you allow it to cause positive or negative thoughts & actions?

where you been all my life?

Revelation 17:8
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

I've been looking for you all my life

i will never let you go
NOW you're somebody that i used to know
