I'm so sorry that you feel the way you do. I wouldn't try and change your mind because I've been there, and I know how it feels to think the way you do, but I would ask you to think about something. I would like you to visit a church that is located in Jackson. You take highway 15 coming out of Campton going toward Jackson. You get off on Highway 205, make a left and go toward Lee City. The church is exactly 3 miles on the right. The pastor is an elderly woman who has been preaching for over 40 years. I've seen God bring people out of wheel chairs, I've seen blind eyes healed, cancer healed, all kinds of sickness healed through this woman's ministry. She herself was give up to die 14 years ago, comletely consumed with cancer, treatment wasn't even an option, she was too far gone, but God healed her. It's been 14 years and she's still going strong. If you go, and you don't receive help, then that's fine, you can continue to believe the way you do, but if you go, and do get help then you'll be glad you went, and it won't hurt either way. There is a side door of the church that has stairs. You can come in a little late, and sit in the back where no one will bother you, the church is large so the back pews are a good distance from the front. They have services on Thur. 7:00p.m, Sat. 7:00p.m., and Sun. 6:00p.m. Just think about it before you make up your mind.

I have never heard of a prison listing Catholic for all of Christianity instead of listing Christianity thus forcing any Christians who are not of the Catholic denomination to put "other" I would be curious where this is done. Why would a place take one denomination only instead of just using Christianity? And liek you said, that would mean more Christians were incorrectly listed as other because for some reason the jail never included Christianity as a choice. I didn't want to bring it up but now that you saw it too maybe Grave will say what correctional institution they do this at?
I would like to know because it is important they change their policies as many people of faith are getting listed as other and being denied services they are legally entitles too. And it would just be a really bizarre almost deliberately incompetent way to run things which makes one curious as to why. Unless maybe the person creating the forms was so biased towards their own denomination that they intentionally excluded the rest of Christianity and even still the ACLU or someone should have been all over that. I'd def like to know where they do this
I agree wholeheartedly. And I would also like to know what prison system had that limited list. You are correct also in saying that it is limiting many Christian sects and skewing the statistics.

If what Dusty believes to be true is by some chance true...she will have to answer for her unkindness.

If it is not true...she will die a lonely bitter old woman...surrounded by people just as lonely and bitter.

It is amazing to me the guy doesn't see himself as a bigot. Or maybe he does and is proud of it. Come to think of it, he has never once denied it. He actually advocates that other non-Christians would attack a Christian coming in here for peaceful purposes on the basis that they should be held responsible for the worst actions of anyone who is a Christian. It is so ignorant it is hard to comprehend.
I have watched this guy post for years. Almost no other people even on his "side" interact with him. He is basically good for comic relief. Once in a while he comes with with a funny insult or attacks someone people don't like. He is like the drunk uncle at Christmas. He serves a purpose when he is not being too embarrassing but you would never hang with the guy outside of the house, you can only take him in small dosages, and you would never discuss anything of importance with him.
KArl is one of the angriest people I have ever come across anywhere. He directs it at Christians yet goes out of his way to engage them when most want nothing to do with him. I have asked him repeatedly how they have affected his life on a day-to-day basis and can't he ignore them if he chooses and he has refused to answer. Yet despite attacking people incessantly online he thinks people that say things back to him should be arrested for assault and put in jail. He actually said that and meant it!
The guy is insane and I am only grateful that nature built some natural protections in by making him as ignorant as he is. i can't imagine what damage a guy like this could do if he had the brains and motivation. If he wants to rant on Topix all day be my guest is my feeling, it is just one more day he is off the streets. It is amazing to me how a guy who has met less than 1% of all Christians can hate over 99% of them. But bigots don't use common sense of they wouldn't be bigots
(T) Peace
You might try asking him why he's angry. It's always good to know the whole story.

The same is true with the Christians who come in here with hate and anger. They at least have had the courtesy of being asked why they are so angry. They either deny it or simply don't answer the question.

Sometimes it's a zebra.

Bollocks.

Dusty, I was prepared to believe that you might actually have been trying to be nice last week

I was wrong.

You're a nasty, vicious, ugly, mean-spirited disgrace, not just to your sex, but to your species.

If it ever happened at all.
I meant according to the Bible. No one will ever know what Jesus did. He didn't write any of it down and neither did anyone else for several decades. His disciples didn't write anything down. No one who had access to his teachings wrote anything down.

This makes me think he was an individual who taught some valuable lessons which were later remembered at least in part and given to others who wrote them down after hearing them third, fourth, or twenty fifth hand.

Thank you. Same to you. Last news report I saw was a day and a half ago. My brother's in the Blue Mountains, my sister's near the City and I can't reach them...we survived the worst of it and I'm grateful for my high set house. Now just need power. Others weren't so blessed as us. I just heard on the radio (am in my car charging my phone how sad, lol) that 4 people in my neighbourhood died through the night :'(... Take care luv <3

Chess Jurist,
Just caught this...
New Book on the Letter to Theodore
http://ntmark.wordpress.com/2013/01/24/new-bo...
I've been following these recent developments. I have read most of these authors' primary stuff, up to Tselikas‘ report for BAR that claims the letter is a modern forgey. The report is pretty damning and Tselikas is the best in the business. Yet someone who's name eludes me but with Charles Hedrick's assistance wrote a response to Tselikas' report that, to a layman like me, calls Tselikas' work into question.

Tselikas' handwriting analysis does not bother me. The fact that he seems to have been the first to note that the Voss volume the letter was found in does not show up on old inventories of the Mar Saba library does -- very much.

This thread is filled with more moans and groans than a porn flick. Tears flow as easily as the tequila does at Rosie's Cantina. She posted on her website that X & G_O_D and their sidekick dingleberry Chess, had gotten a really bad case of the squirts drinking tequila and eating X's grits... AND WAS YELLING SAVE ME JESUS!!!!!!!!!!
Lol... I'm very grateful for the laughs right now. Bless your heart Clownie <3

From a melting down Christian on topix:
"Blasphemy is failure to recognize and respect the authority of The Most High and those He has sent to complete task."
Many Christians think they are here to complete the task that Jesus evidently didn't finish and didn't and Paul was sent to finish and didn't. Funny that.

I reckon! I'm gonna cop it for saying this but I sometimes wish we had electrical buzzers to use in response to comments like that. Like in the Simpsons.
