That guy you know of isn't gay, he's bi.
The ridicule has been monumental.

Even fatal.

Because of ignorant people like you.

<quoted text>Right.

You're the ones trying to play with definitions.

It's really simple:

Straight: Attraction to opposite sex.
Gay: Attraction to same sex.
Bi: Attraction to both sexes.

That's it. Period. You don't get to change them around. Maybe that guy you were talking about used to live a straight lifestyle, now he's living a gay lifestyle. But he's had personal relationships with both sexes, that makes him bisexual, not gay.

What's the big deal with that? Do you think bis are lower than gays or something?
Do you think any woman has never married a man she wasn't attracted to?

Like maybe for money?

Nooooo.

THAT'S never happened.

Btw, she got married because she knew how her father felt and she was afraid of him.
Grown women don't marry because they are afraid of their fathers, she probably did it to ensure her inheritance of assets. Greed is a real motivator.

We've all heard of parents who threaten to disinherit their kids' heads to try to control them.

<quoted text>About a year or so ago I posted that this guy came in to my church as a guest speaker talking about how he used to be gay but now that his sins were gone he was straight. The 4000 or so in the congregation cheered and clapped as he made a big deal about it and his wife and kids met him onstage. At the time I didn't clap, I didn't cheer. I didn't join in with my "brethren" regarding this guy's cure. I observed him and to me this guy still appeared gay. He still swished when he walked, his mannerisms were still feminine and quite frankly still acted and talked like many gays I know.(I have many friends that are gay and we always kid each other all the time so don't get all bent out of shape)
I remember looking at him and his smoking hot wife, his beautiful children and thinking, dude....." I don't believe you. You're lying to yourself and these people and your wife....."
I don't condone or condemn homosexuality, but for heavens sakes, just tell the damn truth.
I thought about the emotional distress this poor bastard was going through. With him Knowing that he was gay but yet trying to fit into what he saw as a "normal" society. Pretending to be "cured" to have a heterosexual relationship.

Parading his family in front of these unknown faces like some dog and pony show.

I prayed for him that evening. Not to be cured of his gayness, but for his emotional well being. The courage to defend his family against his emptiness of feeling like he didnt fully belong in any of those two societies.

I think of this guy often. I've forgotten his name but not his face, or his wife, or his children. I
Sincerely hope that he has been able to find peace in who he is.
Not to mention his wife.

It becomes apparent at some point.

Good post.

Discoveries in astronomy have shown beyond a reasonable doubt that the universe did, in fact, have a beginning. There was a single moment of creation.
Advances in molecular biology have revealed vast amounts of information encoded in each and every living cell, and molecular biologists have discovered thousands upon thousands of exquisitely designed machines at the molecular level. Information requires intelligence and design requires a designer.
Biochemists and mathematicians have calculated the odds against life arising from non-life naturally via unintelligent processes. The odds are astronomical. In fact, scientists aren't even sure if life could have evolved naturally via unintelligent processes. If life did not arise by chance, how did it arise?
The universe is ordered by natural laws. Where did these laws come from and what purpose do they serve?
Philosophers agree that a transcendent Law Giver is the only plausible explanation for an objective moral standard. So, ask yourself if you believe in right and wrong and then ask yourself why. Who gave you your conscience? Why does it exist?
People of every race, creed, color, and culture, both men and women, young and old, wise and foolish, from the educated to the ignorant, claim to have personally experienced something of the supernatural. So what are we supposed to do with these prodigious accounts of divine healing, prophetic revelation, answered prayer, and other miraculous phenomena? Ignorance and imagination may have played a part to be sure, but is there something more?

NOT MY WORDS FROM THE ABOVE POST'S..________

Its all about Faith, and Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen.. God has dealt ''every man'' a measure of Faith. God will be real in your life when you seek him with your whole heart. Until then, you will remain blind to who God is in this life, but one day every one will be made a believer that is ''absolute truth''.

Grown women don't let their dads tell them whether to marry or not. Pussydom must be heritable in your family. Aren't you the fluffball that claimed he couldn't tell his family he was an atheist? Geez, even kids have the nerve to tell their parents where to shove church.

Sure I do.
It means with god, all things are possible.
But since rational people know that all things are not possible, making that a false statement, I'm sure you have SOME way to twist the meaning to suit your beliefs.
That statement was in response to a young rich man asking Jesus who could be saved. The response is intended to mean not just the salvation of rich men, salvation in general. Man cannot save himself nor his fellow. God only can save him. It simply means that God through his grace will make way for us when there is no other way.

Maybe that was your grandniece's agenda; get a rich husband, get dad off her back and ensure an inheritance and screw around on the side. Sounds like a real gem.

Crap! I re read my post and it doesn't even make sense to me! Lol!
Basically it referred to salvation of a person not being possible by other people but by God alone.
Jesus's statement for the guy had many different points. It talked about salvation. Love of worldly possessions. And being humble. There was a lot said there in just a few sentences.

Yeah.

You're right, as always.

I'm sure as my very catholic mother is virtually praying for death, with her pictures of jesus and mary and the last supper all around her, it would comfort her greatly for me to tell her I don't believe in her vision of the afterlife.

And the rest of my extended family, who make it apparent that they are firm believers, yet who still enjoy my company and I theirs, would love me just the same if I told them how much I detest their religion.

Because religious people are just so reasonable about that kind of thing.

Just like you.

Does God Exist - A Philosophical Issue
Before we ask the question "Does God exist?" we first have to deal with our philosophical predispositions. If, for example, I am already dedicated to the philosophical idea that nothing can exist outside of the natural realm (i.e. there can be no supernatural God), no amount of evidence could convince me otherwise. Asking the question "does God exist?" would be pointless. My answer would be "No, He doesn't," regardless of whether God truly exists or not. The question would be impossible to answer from an evidentiary standpoint simply because anything which God might have done (that is, any supernatural act which might serve as evidence for His existence) would have to be explained away in terms of natural causes, not because we know what those natural causes could possibly be, but simply because a supernatural God is not allowed to exist!
Dr. Richard Lewontin, the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology at Harvard University, put it like this: "It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door" (Richard Lewontin, "Billions and Billions of Demons," New York Review of Books, January 9, 1997, p. 28).
If, on the other hand, I were neutral, and didn't already have an "a priori adherence" to a particular worldview (be it naturalistic or otherwise), the question "does God really exist?" wouldn't be pointless at all. Rather, it would be the first step in an objective and meaningful search for ultimate truth. Our willingness to ask the question with an open mind is fundamental to our ability to discover the truth behind the answer. So first of all, before you even ask the question, decide whether or not you're really willing to accept the answer.
continued;
Does this mean you also nullify theories like "M", "String", etc?

As for - "no amount of evidence could convince me otherwise" - I agree, one needs to actually experience the supernatural for themselves in order to really encapsulate a new journey.
