Yeah, I know. The first time I typed "See:" and then the link. that wouldn't work cause I typed the link right with the word "See:" But in the second one I copied and pasted it exactly from the url, but it still wouldn't work. That last post was just he headline, which I knew you couldn't click, but gave it as info.

I'm gonna have another cup of coffee.

Speaking of links. A friend just sent me this. It's called the "Nude Men Clock". Very cute, and not s-rated. And it tells the correct time. Just click on any of the men to change from analog to digital, and back again.

What matters is the action not who committed the action.
This is the case of one Muslim compared with dozens of cases of faux Christians doing the same thing every day.
I still contend that religion is mankind's single worst invention.
Fundamentalist Christianity is exactly the same as Sharia Law just in a different set of clothes. Both would control people and action based on the dictates of this religion.
Exactly.

There are lots of Christians who believe it is their religious duty to tell glbt people that they are going to burn in hell, that they are sick, that they shouldn't be granted basic human rights. And there have been plenty of Christians who have actively called for the death penalty for glbt people.

Some of them post on Topix on glbt threads every day!

We're just so used to it, and it tends to get glossed over, because Christians are in the majority in English-speaking countries. And those death-loving homophobes are no different than the Muslim ones that have been in the news recently in the UK.

You silly misguided woofters. Get down on your knees and thank the lord (not like that you dirty bastards) that you live under Christendom and not Islam where you would have no rights at all if you were even allowed to stay alive.

Nice how you distort reality to suit your anti-Christian agenda. Tell me of one incident where a recognized Christian group called for the killing of gays?
Anti-gay "marriage" is very different than calling for anyone's death.
For starters, how about your "christian" friends in Uganda who are doing just that in their legislature egged on by American evangelist bigots. Take the blinders off, jerk. Supporting bigotry with religion is evil, period.

Great photo. Have any idea where it came from, and what city it was taken in?
London, England. Oxford St. to be specific.

Sorry, but in what way do you consider this photo great?

All I see is a couple of dikes (possibly trannies?) and a small hand full of gays, two of which feel the need to cover their faces.

Is that the best the British gay muslim 'posse' could muster up?

Considering how many muslims reside here, let alone in London - I'd say that was pretty disappointing.

There are many boroughs in London you could hold the gay pride. Hell, even in predominantly macho 'black' areas like Notting Hill, it's fine.

You try doing it in muslim boroughs, it'd be a blood bath.

Christians are the VERY least of your worries if you're gay in the UK.

You're a lying, ignorant cretin.

It's the talibangelicals within all three Abrahamic religions that are the problem bigots. On social issues the insane Muslims agree with you insane Christians agree with insane Jews.

Lots of "Christian clergy" publicly call for death for homosexuals. Of course they tend to be deeply disturbed "Christian clergy" on the margins, but there's lots of them.

"The wages of sin is death"...yet the fundie freeeks only carry those signs around in the context of their homophobic activities, not in the context of the wide variety of human "sins."

We should be thankful that our "religious" freeeks are somewhat constrained by our secular laws and traditions, otherwise we'd have the exact same situation here.

And xstain talibangelicals in the US would be the first to scream "religious discrimination" if any of their bigoted freeeks were arrested for a similar call for the deaths of gay people in the US.

The message of Jesus has allowed homosexuals to gain acceptance.

Jesus would rebuke the homophobes, and welcome gay people into his flock.

So called 'Christian' rednecks don't have to like that, but it is the truth.

The message of Mohammed is simple: Kill homosexuals.

Jesus met a gay couple and praised their love for one another.

Tragically, the majority of gays and lefties will defend Islam, and preach hatred towards Christianity, because that's the PC thing to do.

Common sense awaits its big comeback.

I seriously doubt that. Everyone is painfully aware of human rights violations and killing of homosexuals in countries under Islamic Law.

You fundies always say that. But you don't ever come up with examples of people doing that.

So Christians don't call for the death if homosexuals? That's odd. I guess I just don't hear correctly because I swear I hear it every time they qoute Leveticus. I guess "and they shall be put to death" has a different than what I am aware of.

I guess that grade school newspaper which quoted Leveticus and said the Bible calls for gay people to be killed must mean we should be taken out for drinks and maybe dinner...
