In an interview with Public Radio, Hamer also claimed that his testing showed an inclination towards transcendence and spirituality, and NOT towards a belief in a god per se. He emphasized the importance of seperating spirituality from religion. He also claimed that in testing for spirituality, members of the clergy (various religions) had consistantly scored quite low.
He also gave quite a good lecture at Marlboro college on not only why some people are gay, but why some people are straight.

<quoted text>Can you say faux news?
It's not limited to Fox News. It is spread in every extremist church that everyone is trying to persecute you because you're a believer. This teaches people not to be responsible for their actions, thoughts or words. Someone else is always to blame, never the Christian...no matter what they do.

To be taught that there is no responsibility here on earth is to be taught that no matter what you do, you're forgiven. Therefore, there is no thought of ones actions against another human being.

I'd like to once again say if all preachers said the things Spong says, we'd be a mentally healthier nation.

The problem I have with how you chose to word your post‘s, is that you state that the gene is defective and a disorder. Nothing I have read or heard about his hypothesis, has ever stated such.
Sorry, I misunderstood what you were getting at. The original Time magazine article covered this. I have a link for it but unfortunately they have changed their site so now you have to pay to access it. I do however document all of my research and I have screenshots of the article. It will take some time but I will find what you are looking for and post it for you. Hope that helps.

So it's been a few years now since you posted this.
Tell me what you believe now? Are you an Atheist or Agnostic?
And did you ever study other doctrines looking for the truth?
Well, thanks for dropping in.

I call myself an atheist today, and have for quite a few years now. I'm convinced that God/Allah/Jehovah/Jesus/Holy Spirit, etc., etc.-- is all purely the result in human ingenuity. Folklore and superstition, and nothing but.

I have found life liberating this way, taking responsibility for my own actions and decisions and interacting only with people and no invisible friends.

Dunno, WN.

They were reasonable questions. However, they were asked of someone who is as far from reason as cookies are from a dungheap.

I agree NS...all across America especially in small towns church buildings provide for the needs of their communities. My own son attended day care that was located in a church. They provide child care services...meeting rooms...etc etc for the entire area. I used a day care facility located within a church...I was never asked about religious affiliation. They saw a need and fulfilled it.
In ones haste to find criticism I think that we often overlook the value that churches have added to these small town areas.
My son attended many a sleep over sponsored by churches...they were always open to every child within the community. It was fun for parents too...gave us a night off!
Hello AnnieJ, I hope all is well in your slice of the world today. I somehow managed to miss this post yesterday.

I think that it can be difficult for some to understand that a Church can be a hub for the community. Like you said above, many rent out their space to other groups that are not Christian based. In Ann Arbor there is a Christian Church and a Jewish Synagogue in the same building, they have been there together as long as I remember. They often hold joint programs, such as blood drives (as one example), that are not religion based but community based. I do understand that some think that churches are simply a drain on the community. I can’t help but wonder if they have ever really looked into what their local churches do, other than hold their regular church services.

I found your post while looking for a link that Chess had posted…I am off to pop some popcorn, poor myself a Coke, and cozy on in to watch what I read is a good program. I hope that you have a wonderful and stress free day!

But the unbeliever does not welcome what comes from God's Spirit, because it is foolishness to him; he is not able to understand it since it is evaluated spiritually...

If given enough time, yes. Once an atheist is fully indoctrinated, delusional, and evil like the ones you see on this forum, the hatred will eventually ooze out in the form of violence. Unfortunately the investigators and the media will never reveal this information of their dark findings about these villainous criminals.
They usually only let us in on the rare occasional Christian that makes a mistake in shooting someone. The media is GROSSLY biased to letting the public know only of Christian crimes. I guess it is just assumed the other numerous crimes are by atheists, but they don't mention it in their news releases.
The media is very unfair and biased against Christianity.
Whadda hoot.
