Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

You aren't even a third of your life yet, little one. A tiny, tiny fraction of your mature cognizant self has passed in your 20 years. You have a very long ways to go in your thinking. Keep an open mind.
Mathematically you have me beat with digits. I only have 15 :)

You only know what I've told you about my 20 years. I've been on every continent except the one that's made of ice. You couldn't pay me enough to hop on that one.

Do you know what I like best about the winter solstice?

There is a very distinct difference between those people and me, Chris.
I'm a lesbian.
If she was a lesbian, she still is. If she wasn't a lesbian then she's lying.
She's lying to you either way. That's your deal.
At your age you just think you are. It is your reality for the time being.

Just like thinking you were a good little Christian girl and a variety of other things already. Now you think you are lesbian.

Did you give up your heterosexuality? Did you start over as a homosexual?

Let me know when you do. Then I'll believe that your wife did the opposite.

She's lying to you or you're lying to me.

Either way, there is a lie. It's OK with me. I'm not a Christian.

That math turns into observation and experience.

You do play your violin better than when you started, don't you?

You have been absorbing. Takes a good while to collate it all.

I didn't lose anything on that block of ice, either.

What do you like most about the winter solstice?

We each decide what those are, not your church, meaning that the dominant cultural viewpoint is determined by popular opinion.
Right and wrong is as objective as the laws of gravity. Opinion either conforms to reality or it does not. Sure popular opinion can call wrong right but not without eventual consequences. By the way, i am still waiting for your answer to my question regarding the two examples of slave revolt in the Old Testament. The first is easy.
Your church would like to authoritatively impose its read on us all, but absent a theocratic government to enforce that, it can't.
The church is far more concerned with those who attend church to stay away or reject the message of non believers. They create the issue by attempting to change society and part of the resistance comes from certain members of the church.
Most if us simply don't care what you think Jesus calls a sin,
Obviously. Most of the non believers here do not care about love mutual respect, tolerance, honesty because they are poisoned with hate and will only depict the church as an evil. Your great at that.
and it's ridiculous for Christians to think that we should,
We don't. Why should we?
or that we shouldn't respond when they wag their fingers.
You also wag your finger but you are dead wrong and your way leads only to destruction.

Another thing. What did A+E expect they would get when they started a show with a bunch of rednecks in camoflage who hunt and go to church and pray at the end of each show?
I predict Phil will be reinstated in short order.

Here is my favourite comment about Phil's rant taken from another website. Am I allowed to say that?

Name redacted

Ladies, be honest: would any of you let Phil put his penis into your vagina?

Then you support freedom of expression if it's a Christian expressing his beliefs, but not if it's an employer trying to protect his profitability from those beliefs if they offend his customers - is that correct? I doubt that you'll get much support for that except from other Christians.
<quoted text>
Apparently, neither are gay people. Nor are the Christians, if they can fight back.
<quoted text>
That's incorrect. I presume that the rest of his duck buddies are Christians as well, but they weren't fired.
<quoted text>
Why do you keep saying that his rights were violated? He was free to express himself when he did, and still is now.
If A&E has violated its agreement with the gentleman, he may prevail in.civil litigation. My guess is that the contract was likely written by the employer's attorneys, and gives it the right to terminate the relationship under certain circumstances that it feels would be damaging to it. If so, the man betrayed his employer's trust, and released it from its obligation.
I heard Ralph Reed chiming in on this issue on Anderson Cooper's show last night. It looks like a regular Bonfire of the Vanities brewing. Sarah Palin and Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal have also piled on. I see the possibility of this issue becoming a huge stink for a few weeks or months - or it could just die. The church will likely be best served by this issue going away, as I suspect that proceeding in this manner will further damage the church's public perception.
Let's see him make similar derogatory remarks about black fellas these days. Then see the little drongo try to claim victimhood when he gets given the boot.

This is the 21C and such bigotry should not be tolerated.

Walk down the road a mile in your shoes. Then walk down 20 miles. You will notice some more wear and tear, and a certain pacing you develop. Plus the need for things you are carrying.

You still got better playing. You wouldn't be playing in an orchestra if you didn't. I believe you have said you have done so.

You absorb everything. You are a sharp cookie. You haven't discarded anything. As your perspective increases they will fit into your equations.

There is undoubtedly something very remarkable under that ice. But I will let younger and more cold tolerant dig it up. You know I don't have the mainstream view of earth and human history.

Light and warmth is life. Gives you more energy to expend on doing things instead of husbanding what you have to just survive. THAT will become much more evident the older you get. One reason you get out of warm beds with a better attitude than a cold one. Very important to sleep warm as toast. The solstice also signals a change in the EM flow. Has to do with the direction of received radiation.:-)

Around the same time the CEO of Chick-fil-a gave his thoughts so did the President (I think?) of Amazon. His thinking was directly opposed and some Christians did call for a boycott of Amazon. This Christian that loves everyone's right to speak thinks its silly. Not a fan of duck any more than honey boo boo but everyone gets a say.

I think the message that this and the Duckman thing are each sending is that the public doesn't approve of these Christian's treatment of gay people.

How about the tractor trailer driver carrying 8,000 gallons of liquid propane gas rolling down the freeway at 70 mph smoking cannabis and you are in the car next to him? Or the engineer on a train going 80 mph around a curve with 85 rail cars of toxic chemicals through you town?
You forgot bestiality. It's a staple in slippery slope arguments.

On an unrelated note:

"Virgin Gregg Casarona felt the earth move the first time he had sex - unfortunately it was the masonry falling as his girlfriend's head bashed through the wall. Morbidly obese Gregg Casarona had been dating Jen Gerakaris for a month when they decided to sleep with each other. Unfortunately as 31 stone (434 lb) Casarona became Cassanova he failed to take into account the power behind his near quarter of a ton weight. As the amorous 21-year-old and his 8st girlfriend got intimate, her head went right through the wall behind them. Gregg said:“My initial reaction was,‘I killed her. This is my first time. And Jen is dead.'” Fortunately she saw the funny side and as he freed her head she quipped: "Why did you stop?"

Oh and Happy Solstice. The precise time that our earth will be crossing the long axis of the orbital ellipse will be 11:11 central time today (17:11 in London/Greenwich, 12:11 in Boston/NY, and 9:11 in Riverside CA)- exactly 3 hours from now
