Yeah, right! And if you believe that, you'll also believe you'll LOSE one hour tonight!!
ROFLMAO!!!!
Work midnights like I did, you work an extra hour, and you don't get paid for it. You work nine hours not eight. Will take me a few years to get use to this. The last few years I lost and hour. Only a person who has or does work the graveyard shift knows what that is. Many things to get use too your first year in retirement, it sure is nice...Thanks for your concern tho, I slept very good......LOL ;)_

So you still think you know more about your body by virtue of being in it than any man on Earth.

Read "Of Mice and Men". You made a mockery of it.

No, he beat you. Your family evidently are blow hards. Your a wiccan, he asked you to prove it, and you couldn't. Enough said.
And you were asked to prove you're Christian by obeying the God you claim while posting here and you couldn't. So your judgment of others...and his...is pointless.

You ARE pathetic.

It is 2012 Annie, not 1970.

The rest of the women have come a long way, Baby.

It is evident that some think that being a woman is still a terrible thing. I think they're jealous that they didn't get that chance.
ROFLMAO

That is such BS and you know it.

I have loved that song for many years...long before I knew you existed. Has nothing to do with you "G".

At various points in my life I have had to step out of my box...at times that has been scary...I have always used music...certain songs...that hold meaning. I am at one of those times in my life.

Actually...it was not you that reminded me of that song. It was a post by WN to someone else that triggered my thoughts and sent me searching for it.

Sorry...but if calling me an asshole makes you better than I...then go for it. I will still have a good day...even knowing that is what you think of me.

I just can't grasp the mentality that's required to be like those folks. Do they honestly believe they are accomplishing something positive for their cause?
Good question Mr.W. I have wondered that from the day that I joined this discussion and read all the hate and threats from the "so called" christians. The only answer that I came up with is that these types of believers are "repeating" what their preachers are screaming to them from behind the pulpits. Here are 2 more questions that I have pondered on..

1- I have noticed that most of THESE Believers will also say that they will only believe the KJV Bible..They claim that is the only TRUE version. I have been on here and claimed that we are "Justified By Faith in Grace Alone" They disagree with me on this, HOWEVER, Martin Luther Believed this way as well. If Martin Luther believed this way and the hateful christians only believe his version of the bible, Then WHY dont they BELIEVE what they read???

2- My other question is aimed at these fire and brimstone style christians...While they sit in their pews and listen to their preacher scream these threats, Are they applying this to THEMSELVES or are they looking around at the congregation or even thinking of us on this thread and applying it to EVERYONE ELSE? If they will admit the truth, those who apply it to everyone else are the one's who are actually in the danger that they apply to everyone else.

Lets see how they squirm out of this one..Good day Mr. Wiggley

Once again...if it makes you feel good about yourself...

I find nothing wrong with the 70's. Well...the decor wasn't my favorite...I like it much more now that it is called "retro". Though that avocado green and harvest gold are still at the bottom of my list.

Oh yes...and the shag rugs...LOL

Oh, yes! It's terribly a'holish to be proud of being a woman and having overcome the misogyny in this country oh masterful G_O_D, omniscient one with three degrees, BMW and good retirement plan!

You remind me of Hyacinth on Keeping Up Appearances.

So there's never been any misogyny in this country? I was a woman working in the 60's forward. Don't get your panties in a wad, but there is still a great deal of it out there. Just listen to the political candidates!

You don't buy the 'I am woman crap' either, remember?

This is a very good post Grace. The "fire 'n' brimstone" mentality of fundamentalism is very constrictive. It operates on a tunnel vision mentality in which members of that type of congregation focus on the behavior of others, and not on their own. Jesus warned against this trap of spiritual competitiveness. The mature Christian doesn't compare him or herself to other Christians or non-Christians in such an arrogant way. We realize that our salvation is not dependent upon our behavior, but upon God's grace. We change our behavior over time out of appreciation for that grace, and the cost that was paid for that grace by Jesus.

G thinks everything is about him. How could everything *not* be about him? He has 3 degrees, a BMW and a job with good retirement! I'm sure no one else has ever accomplished such a feat! We'll hear about him on the news any day now.

Good Avatar.

But you realize Jesus was a Jew, not a Christian, right?

Thank You..I love this qoute. God isn't looking for Behavior Modification..He is looking for Heart Trasformation.. The wisdom behind that is.. GOD knew that once our hearts were transformed..Everything else will follow the heart. Grace and Peace to you
