He addressed whether a particular act is a homosexual act.
He is correct.
I disagree with his usage.

This equivocation tactic is used by homophobic bigots. They're using it for effect.

I certainly wouldn't want to help them for no better reason than you and Stilgar have.
Apparently it is you who does not understand.
I'm sure you have nothing more to add.

Standard is right, you deserve Hell. Go there ASAP so that you can get your proof of God and never forget it.
Your ridiculous remarks on topix will haunt you for eternity as you burn alive in it.
Good riddance , you hateful atheist.
You Bible waving fundies need to shut it. No Christian should ever take satisfaction with the thought of atheist suffering in hell. You need to step back and understand that Jesus Christ started a Church not a Book. And whether you like it or not, that guy in the white hat is the 266th successor to Saint Peter as the Bishop of Rome.
Hell is no joke.
Its eternal separation from God. Heaven isn't for people like you to have joy that an atheist like him is tormented at being separated from God. Your pride makes you relish the thought that he'd say 'I shouldn't have mocked that dude on topix. I should have listened to him!" That's pride. You are no more saved than anyone else.

Atheism is not "lack of belief".
Atheism is a belief - that no god exists.
I am about 90 percent certain that you do not lack belief, but are typical of the Topix atheists, and firmly believe no god exists, but want to shirk any burden derived from being honest about it.
That's been my experience.
I recall that you are quite fond of telling other people what they believe, so I know that this is a pointless endeavor on my part, but no], I simply lack a belief in a god. I don't think it's likely that any gods exist, so it's not like I'm sitting on the fence or anything, but it's not possible to rule out a god, regardless of how small I consider the possibility, so I don't "firmly believe no god exists."

And in my experience, you are constantly reminded by nearly all of the regulars that they lack a belief in a god, as opposed to believing that gods cannot/do not exist. Some people do believe that the gods so far defined by humanity don't exist, because said gods become easier to discredit as they become less vague.

<quoted text>If you cared for her the way you say, then she knew that. Sometimes you do not need words. We all have regrets when things like this happen, and is never too late to make amends for what you think you did not do. You said she had 2 children, 16 and 14, you can always do right by them. Losing a mother especially at that age is probably one of the hardest things in life to go through.
If you are a lawyer in California like you claim, then you more than likely have more money than most. A lot of good could be done. Maybe set up a college fund in their mothers honor so they have one less worry as they move into adulthood; it is just an idea. Money cannot replace their mother, but they can build a life with an education.
I'm helping the two girls, but I still regret not letting their mom know how much I admired her courage, in the face of a death sentence.

Alright you Christians. Here's a guy that obviously accepts Christ as his god, meaning that unless he was lied to, he is filled with the Holy Spirit and has received its gifts and fruits. He probably at least intermittently attends a church where he hears sermons and others hear him, reads his bible with the benefit of the Spirit and its promised discernment, and communes with his god through prayer.
Yet look at what a failed human being he is. Where is the power of this god and Spirit? Please explain what happened there, and why any unbeliever should believe the other claims and trust the other promises of Christianity?
Clearly he's not a true christian. If he really believed in the redemptive power of the flesh of the christ, he would be a hippie ascetic full of love (wait, I mean he would be a typically materialistic christian who picks and chooses which parts of jesus' message to follow based on their current sensibilities).

So, you've not taken advantage of the world's fourth best higher education, a privilege in your own country, because of society?

I would've thought it was because you didn't finish high school or because you weren't able to overcome the crappy education you were provided with in primary school.

But I'm just a crazy person so, feel free to correct me.

Finger waggers?
Show me a group of more vile finger-waggers than the global warmists, the militant aborters, feminist screechers, the race-baiters. and the big government-wealth-transferors. The left, not the christian right, are the Orwellian freedom-grabbers in this nation.
Each of those groups will take your money, your home, and your life if needed for their religious cause. That IS NOT even a hypothetical proposition. It has happened repeatedly.
Christians are bashful angels by comparison. If we value our property and life, and if those are the available options, we should give more power to the Christian camp.
"Global warmists," "militant aborters" etc... Hilarious. Wtf is a global warmist? Is that a fancy word for someone who doesn't believe in a massive, globe spanning conspiracy perpetrated by nearly every climate scientist on earth?
