<quoted text> You'd also think the American churches who are supporting these African churches/missionaries would be 'all over that'. But they're not. They keep sending their money though two documentaries on it have aired in the US.
Yes.

I saw at least one of them.

There's something wrong with my nasty suspicious mind - I can't get over the feeling that the whole tragedy is submerged in a horrible First World reflex: "It's only Africa, and they're only Africans".

Overly cynical, even for me, but I can't seem to shake it.

You're not just intellectually lazy, you're dishonest.

I have not imposed upon your rights Wasup...you are not missing a single one because of me.
We have the same rights...
Does that make me satanic??? Since we both have the same rights then that also makes you satanic...logically speaking.
it's all good. when you remind me that i'm not being the greatest christian, i'll remind you that you're being an excellent satanist:)

Based on what has been shown here, you should know:

Nymph does not lie.

You do.

(I only lie a little, to improve a tale. For entertainment purpouses only.)

OK. What ever turns you on. As long as the horse isn't injured I don't give a shit.
Did your deity tell you to say that? And if so, where?
'Cos I don't think I'd like him much. If he was, like, real.

<quoted text>Those are different than the ones my mom used. the hanger was at the top of the pants and there wasn't much separation between the legs. I'm gonna look and see if I can find a picture of the old fashioned ones.
I personally can't believe that people still use those things.
I remember pants stretchers.

I still have a pair.

I call 'em "legs".

OH, SORRY! I meant "limbs"...

I repeat: what rights have you lost? So far, you haven't answered. I guess that's par for the course.
i'm trying to educate you that the loss of freedoms are subtle and un-official things before they become law. i.e., it's 'in the air' before it becomes tangilbe, like political correctness.

for instance, we don't use the term Christmas or celebrate it in my work place anymore just because someone complained a half dozen years ago. however, we do celebrate halloween; another religious holiday, but apparently less offensive since it's blatantly pagan.

choose your side, friend and let's get this show on the road!

No you aren't; you are lying to me, and avoiding the question. What rights have you lost?

Why should anyone believe a known liar like yourself?

Now, what rights have you lost? Answer the question.

I don't know about anyone else but I think that's great. I don't believe in your big bad scary monsters so calling me a name like that means nothing. It's actually more akin to children calling eachother silly names that mean nothing and usually only end up being a name calling contest that no one wins.
So in closing...you act like a child.

You realize that this is not quite true don't you???
Churches have group alter calls to save as many as they can at one time. I know...I played JUST AS I AM many a time to appeal the their emotional side.
There are also those tent revivals...if you attend one...on the second night they give the "saved" count for the first night...continuing on until the last night.
I remember the first time that I went to the alter...it was packed that night. When I turned around there were people sitting in the pews counting to see how many were "saved". I think that was one of the very first inklings that something wasn't quite right. I pushed that right out of my head though because...I did not want to grow up to be bad!
It might "supposed" to be one soul at a time but you guys sure do keep up with those numbers.
so you had some bad experiences with people playing 'church'- get in line! some of us though, who knew enough not to blame God for the actions of foolish humans, have gone on to have a great relationship with our Heavenly Father.

don't hate us for it like cain hated abel.

So far, it looks like a toss-up between Ahmedinejahd of Iran and the Syrian president. They believe in god, too, and act under "his authority."

Just like you.

You just want to hate and can't name a single right you've lost. You're a doom and gloomer. Period.
Your idiocy does not scare anyone but those who are as idiotic as you are.
sure...this wonderful world and all the wonderful people are just gonna go on forever. did you hear about what just happened today in connecticut???
