Hey Christardate, you avoided the content again.
You lied that I said something about Christians having to be perfect. I did no such thing. You had better repent of your lying or jaysus will smite you, fool.
I said you fixate on some buried, mistranslated, ambiguous passages while ignoring much more prominent, central and clear admonitions against other "sins," equally unrepentant.
I mentioned those who covet, take the lawd's name in vain, disrespect their parents, disregard the golden rule.
So deal with the content, you stupid, bigoted, bumpkin mullah.
Thanks for proving my last point. I'm not answering any of your questions as your only goal is to get a response that you can use to call me an evil Christian. Have a nice day.

I knew Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan was no Bob Dylan.
I have a feeling our musical tastes may differ somewhat. For example, I don't regard any Elvis as a king of rock. Also, I am not Bob Dylan's biggest fan, although his song "Mr. Tambourine Man" is one of my favorites, especially the Byrds recording.

Actually, I don't regard anyone as a rock and roll king. But I think there are some rock greats. However that is another story.

Still I think we can both agree that Rick Perry is a horse's patootie.

Well, it seems that Rick Perry and his wacko friends think it would be a good idea for the State of Texas to pay for Conversion Therapy to treat Gays to become straight.

Well, before they do, it would be best if Rick would allow some experimentation on himself to see if any kind of therapy will help him grow even the most rudimentary form of a brain.

So, let's get this straight, Texas will not expand its medical care but the state has enough money to convert a person's sexual orientation?

Does anyone in Texas have a brain, or do they all have an Ass in place of a head?

Did anyone see the Jon Stewart rip on this?

"Stewart pulled no punches. After showing footage of crackpot psychologist and "ex-gay" proponent Joseph Nicolosi saying ... that changing a gay person is merely a matter of bringing out their inner heterosexual, Stewart pointed out the absurdity of that claim.

"But [heterosexuality is] the thing [gay people] don't have in them. It's like giving a woman a C-section who's not pregnant. You won't find what you're looking for, but you will leave a scar."

He then brought up some of the abusive and disgusting "treatments" that these junk-science therapists prescribe, including electroshock therapy and having the patient put their poop in a bottle and sniff it whenever they're attracted to someone of the same sex. Stewart said Texas Republicans should take this advice to heart:

"Being gay is not a choice, but being a Texas Republican is. So my advice is the next time you feel the urge to be a Texas Republican -- to replace science textbooks with pictures of humans riding dinosaurs, or ban same-sex marriage, or put on this [plush GOP elephant hat], shit in a jar and sniff it. It won't cure you; the science proves that. But do it anyway. Hopefully it'll remind you of what assholes you're being."
