Thats funny that you're using something (Bible verses) that mean nothing to you to prove something. The Only thing that it does prove is that the Bible has a strong and powerful grip on you and you can't stop quoting it.... I know, I know.....you keep quoting it to prove that the Bible is this and that the Bible is that....yadda yadda yadda...
God has a powerful grip on you and you can't let go...
Behold Alan.... A closet Christian!
Alan is simply reminding religious people what their holy book says, since so many religious people know so little about the holy book they claim is a guiding factor in their lives.
What I've always found odd, is that Christians often know far less about the Bible than do nonbelievers. It reinforces the idea that the more a person understands of this religion, the less likely they are to believe in it.

Ignorance is the most powerful driving force of your religion.

<quoted text>If those I care about grow up to be gay- extremely or otherwise- then so be it and that's fine with me.
Unlike you, I would never try to dictate how others live or what their sexuality should or shouldn't be.
And sorry- there IS nothing wrong with being gay; you might as well say there's something wrong with having blue eyes.
People are born either straight or gay (and in some cases bi) and have no more conscious control over that than they do the eye color they were born with.
But stay ignorant and stay bigoted so that you'll always be known as the ignorant bigot you are.

<quoted text>Quite a change of tune from the song you were singing yesterday, RR.
My whole point yesterday was that men being physically stronger than women does NOT mean that men are superior to women and that IS what you were claiming yesterday.
And men are not superior to women and women are not superior to men.
Capisce?
Nah- of course you don't.
I never said men are superior, douche.

I said men are physically superior.

<quoted text>Strawman, red herring, whatever you want to call it, RR.
Surely the point I was making didn't go over your head, but of course, I shouldn't assume it did not.
The POINT is that yes- in certain cases, one animal being stronger than another animal is not necessarily to the stronger animal's advantage or benefit.
You seem to think the entire sum of one's physical being- be it human or non-human animal- is one's physical strength.
Sorry, but that simply is not correct.
I never said that physical strength is the entire sum of blah blah blah.

Why do you exaggerate what I write?

I've only implied that certain translations are worthy because they're translated as best and as honestly as possible.
Are you referring to certain texts? Gnostic texts, maybe?

No. What the f_ck is it with Topix posters that they have to twist so much?

I did not say anything about "God approved ". I said they are translated better.
I say buillshite and you are lying openly, when in fact you have no clue or idea which texts are "God inspired".
You do?
So don't play me for a fool, and try to swagger your way around the request.....I'm asking for your honesty RR - not what others have made claim to and you uphold.
Where does "God" specifically state which texts are of "His inspiration" and where does "He" state which ones are not.
In the Bible.

I've already shown you.
It really isn't that difficult, if one uses honesty.
I've seen you post honesty before, so I know you have it within you.
Ugh

<quoted text>When did I say there was sales tax on groceries?
I did say "goods," but "goods" does not imply "groceries."
Take ink pens, for instance - they are a form of "goods" that are bought, but are not "groceries" like you are implying. That is, unless you eat ink pens I suppose. The state I live in has no sales tax on groceries, but there is a sales tax on ink pens (and all non-grocery goods).
<quoted text>A portion of their rent money still goes to pay the property taxes associated with that property. They will not pay taxes directly, though, you are correct.
What you have forgotten about entirely, though, is to find the relevance of the example person you are talking about in regards to the Affordable Care Act. I guess you forgot to actually do any research, lest you would have stumbled upon Section 1312(f)(3), which says:
"If an individual is not, or is not reasonably expected to be for the entire period for which enrollment is sought, a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully present in the United States, the individual shall not be treated as a qualified individual and may not be covered under a qualified health plan in the individual market that is offered through an Exchange."
In other words, the person you are making an example of is not even affected by the Affordable Care Act!
What I find striking, though, is that the example you have been reduced to using for which to make your argument is an illegal immigrant living in Oregon with no car, no legal income, and who rents a room from someone who pays them cash to do work 'under the table.'
Is this really the average American in your opinion? Odd, really.
<quoted text>Judging from content of your posts so far, I don't really find your perception of "think" to hold much significance.
Either Kansas or Oklahoma (maybe both) have a tax on groceries.

— a spokesman for Fox responded with a de facto admission that the channel is nothing more than a propaganda arm of the Republican Party and the conservative movement.

“It is their M.O. to undermine the administration and to undermine Democrats,” says the source.“They’re a propaganda outfit but they call themselves news.”

And that’s the word from inside Fox News.

“They say one thing and do another. They insist on maintaining this charade, this façade, that they’re balanced or that they’re not right-wing extreme propagandist,” says the source. But it’s all a well-orchestrated lie, according this former insider. It’s a lie that permeates the entire Fox News culture and one that staffers and producers have to learn quickly in order to survive professionally.

“You have to work there for a while to understand the nods and the winks,” says the source.“And God help you if you don’t because sooner or later you’re going to get burned.”

The source explains:

“Like any news channel there’s lot of room for non-news content. The content that wasn’t ‘news,’ they didn’t care what we did with as long as it was amusing or quirky or entertaining; as along as it brought in eyeballs. But anything—anything–that was a news story you had to understand what the spin should be on it. If it was a big enough story it was explained to you in the morning [editorial] meeting. If it wasn’t explained, it was up to you to know the conservative take on it. There’s a conservative take on every story no matter what it is. So you either get told what it is or you better intuitively know what it is.”

HA HA!!

All y'all do is quote the Bible. That's it. That's not knowledge.

Reverend Anal is the worst of atheists, he pretends to understand what the Bible says but understand none of it.

He's deluded, like most atheists, to think he understands what the Bible says.

Tea party people are more patriotic? How do you figure? Jingoism is not patriotism. Being duped by fascist, corporate masters into oligarchy is not patriotism. Claiming love it or leave it with one president and then telling another to put down the Koran is not patriotism. Your bias is unsupported by facts.
