I'm just going to answer this because I'm going to bed and am not going to wait for your answer.
For the most part, as there are always exceptions, homosexuals do not exhibit "hate" and intolerance for Christianity.It's really the other way around. Many of them have spent their entire lives yearning for a personal relationship with Christ as well as being accepting by the church they grew up in but as who they are, not who those in the church have determined they should be, because there are many interpretations to God's scripture.
It's really a pet peeve of mind to continue seeing Christians pull the "hate" and "intolerance" card in defense of themselves.
It's the essential reverse psychological mindfruck and it's ridiculous.
Many Christians want to claim that THEY are the ones being persecuted and hated for their beliefs and traditions, but when their beliefs essentially single out groups of people and condemn them or their lifestyle it really isn't surprising that they are going to get some return backlash from those groups.
It's like me going on talk radio and saying I hate all Bikers because I interpreted in my Bible that it's God's will to hate bikers and not expecting bikers to give me a piece of their mind.
The reality is that some of the Christians in today's society have completely used the church and the religion to justify hatred and intolerance and when they're called out on it, they play victim.
Hypocrite.

You decry Christianity and then demand that the group accepts you unconditionally. You and those like you are what is destroying this country and everything that it stood for

<quoted text>Don't mean to butt in. I have a large gun collection my husband left me. There's an old 303 British. It's short. It has tall sight on the business end. It has sort of a blond camouflage stock. I think I remember hearing it was a snipers rifle. Any info?
If it's short, it's likely not a snipers rifle but a carbine, the one they called a "jungle carbine". The shorter length made it easier to negotiate thicker brush while still being more deployable. A sniper rifle had to have a longer barrel both for stability of the round and to get all the power out of the powder. The .303 is a potent round- almost equivalent to our 30-06. You've got a nice piece of history there.
I have three old guns- a 7mm Mauser, a Damascus-barreled 12 gauge and an 1895 Russian Nagant pistol. The 12 gauge will never be shot again, modern loads are too powerful and could split the hammered-wire barrels. What else do you have in your collection?

I'm sure the ATF would be interested in that "large gun collection" you have.
1 - 8 0 0 - A T F - G U N S
Most likely other collectors would be interested more than the BATF-E (the E was added some years ago- "Explosives"). It's not nice to scare a lady like that, especially when she's talking about a Lost Loved One. Rude.

This is sadly a common story. I would highly recommend Bonnie do research on line for appraisal values of all the pieces and decide whether to sell, keep or distribute the firearms to deserving family members. Selling would be best for her in an auction, as Idaho is a gun-friendly state.

I heard about a lady who was in line to turn in a gun owned by her late husband in a gummint buy-back program. A fellow standing in line with her offered her $5000 for the gun she hoped to get $50 for.

Hmmm, would Rose or NTR appreciate that advice?

Kentucky lawmakers override religious freedom veto

Kentucky lawmakers have voted to override the governor's veto of a bill intended to better protect legal claims of religious freedom.

The law will give stronger legal standing to people in court who claim the government burdened their ability to practice their religion. The legislation protects "sincerely held religious beliefs" from infringement unless there is "a compelling governmental interest." The courts will still consider and rule on each matter.

Man allegedly tried to smuggle phone to Manson

A Charles Manson follower has been arrested on charges of trying to smuggle a cellphone inside the California prison where Manson is housed. Manson has been caught twice with a smuggled phone in the past four years.

However, the notorious cult leader who is serving a life sentence for orchestrating a series of gruesome murders more than 40 years ago has been caught with a smuggled cellphone twice in the past four years.

Yep I already corrected myself on that. I knew it was no snipers rifle. And I thought I remembered my husband saying it was a jungle carbine. He also had a 7.7 Jap with a sporterized stock. Is that the same as 7.7 caliber as we know it? That's smaller than a nine millimeter (Obviously). It would be a very )HOT)fast bullet with all that powder behind it.I'd think. BTW. I also have a gun that will never be shot again. A Remington twenty gauge pump that I fired with snow in the barrel. IT never split but it now curves to the right. Honest.. I guess it would still be good for ducks flying right..I wouldn't have to lead them.. LOL.

<quoted text>My first deer rifle was a Rem. A3-03- a shoulder-bruiser in 30-06. As soon as I lucked into the TC in .223, my hunting got a lot simpler. Military ball grouped about breadbox-sized at 100 yards. My handloads got the groups down to a dime. As a plus they're only about 80% as potent, so recoil is much easier to handle. When I wanted to feel the recoil and be in awe of a round, I'd put on the 7x30 Waters barrel. There are a lot of people who know more about this topic than I do and a lot of people who are better shots. I know what I know is all I can tell you. A young lady who made a pair of jeans look like a priceless bit of sculpture could out shoot me on ocassion- didn't bother me a bit but her ass-ets made it hard to concentrate on the target.
You huntcoyotes I presume,sounds like you like your guns.Know a guy that has a 100 gun safe an it full,he likes his guns.Ass-ets been there to it does make it hard concentrate on what your doing.

TMT can affect anybody, you know. It can become like a vacuum which we all know that nature abhors, and one can get sucked into it.
So, really the only game here that makes any sense at all to play here is the identification of those that produce all of the sucking.
Right?
