I will believe everything you post once you answer the following questions correctly and in order. You must use readily tangible and verifiable evidence rather than ontological arguments.

1. Prove your God exists.

2. Prove your God is the right God.

3. Prove your God wrote a book of rules and regulations.

4. Prove your God's book is the only such book.

5. Prove that your God's book has never been mistranslated or misinterpreted.

6. Prove that your opinion and interpretation meets your God's approval.

Good luck with that.

Homosexuality is an abomination in the GOD's eyes but a big weapon of SATAN in his will to bring many humans with him in the hell.ALL those pastors and the VATICAN that accepted to marry two peoples of the same sex are about to be hardly treated by GOD.Satan is everywhere and he uses all those that deny GOD to make 'em corrupt the societies and the new world order is working with all that.ONE day Illuminati will create the One world government and I guess SATAN would be the president;to prepare the strike against Jesus that will come to destroy all authorities and all their influences.GOD would come after to judge all of us.YOU are all warned.
I like this joke better.

Some friars needed to raise more money for books for the school, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds.

Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good brothers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him.So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop.

Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that "Only Hugh can prevent florist friars."

Whatever way a state defines something it still has to pass muster with the Supreme Law of the land. States have made all kinds of laws that didn't stand up to scrutiny of Constitution and Federal Law. So it will be with gays trying to co-op the word marriage from male and female joinings.
Marriage Equality DOESN'T need to pass ANY MUSTER from any one if the state DOESN'T have a referendum process.........and it doesn't need to be approved by SCOTUS either!!!!

Look, no matter what happens with SCOTUS in June of 2013......those Same-Sex Couples who are already married and those states that already have Marriage Equality.........will still continue forward in the way they are now, but I don't see SCOTUS upholding Section 3 of DOMA as being anything but UNCONSTITUTIONAL and I don't believe they are going to overturn Judge Walker's ruling on Prop 8......though they may overturn the 9th because of the standing issue, but that remains to be seen.

There needs to be a point of law under discussion that in the Court's opinion, needs to be addressed further. I believe they will address the issue of standing.
I agree, it will be interesting to see who voted to hear Prop 8 and who added the standing question.....I guess we will know soon enough!!!

6.I chased a demon that grabbed me while I was sleeping,using the name of JESUS and GOD...if you don't believe me,it's not my problem;btwn I have so much things to do, to not want to waste my time over here with peoples I don't know; telling them some liars...I can't waste my precious time for lies.BYE.

Let's look at it another.

You can't prove God exists or is the right God.

You admit that the Bible is quite possibly mistranslated and misinterpreted; You even gave what may or may not be a good example.

Since you can't prove that God exists or that God has an approved book of rules, how can you maintain that "God says...?"

How do you know you didn't imagine a demon. People imagine all sorts of things.

You are under some kind of delusion. I wouldn't call you a liar because you don't seem to know the difference between delusion and reality.

FUN STUFF.

Best Wishes.

if you are searching him and wanting to meet him with all your hearts,he will give you the proof of his existence...God can't appear to us cuz he said:all humans that would see me being alive would die...this is why he don't come to our planet but is still in his kingdom.If you really want to find him,he will lead you in your life by using others peoples,making you watch certain movies o documentary,bringing you in certain churches;etc...but you will never see him being alive.You will never listen his voice but the only thing you would listen is what peoples are calling our good conscience;which is in fact our angel.And that voice is leading you to GOD if you don't listen that voice,the other voice will lead you to the sins and the ignorance that finally bring to the future condemnation.

have you ever experimented the state of half awaken-half sleeping? when that thing is happening to you,that means there is a demon around you that make you not being able to move....in certain cases,these demons may grab you or hit you before you awake...in fact are you even spiritual? if you are not then I understand why you don't dig me.Go and ask that to a wizard or a spiritual man,he would tell you.

1. Fine. People can do something about that. It neither proves God exists or does not exist. It proves God is not likely going to intervene (assuming the existence of God.)

2. Marriage or not, people have sex. So what?

3. Illuminati are some imaginary entity conjured up by mentally ill paranoids. I don't care about such fantasy.

4. Agreed. The planet is over populated and polluted.

5. The number of homosexuals remains about the same. Yes more couples are joining together and coming out. This should please you considering the facts presented in items one, two and four.

6. I don't care about internet porn. I do care about victims of sexual predictors but I don't see what any of this has to do with the existence or non-existence of God.

7. There are many people of God in the church, including the Catholic Church. There are also people in the church who are not of God and people of God who are not in the church. What is your point? Aren't you disrespecting a bunch of people? Doesn't the Bible teach about Judgment? Seems you don't really believe do you.

8. What a misogynistic statement. Shame on you.

9. Countries have always struggled against each other. Haven't you read the Bible?

10. The earth changes. We have also experienced climate change. What does this have to do with God?

11. Yes, when one species over populates, it can adversely affect other species. Does this have anything to do with God?

What is your point?

church is the last place where homosexuality is supposed to be accepted...since that's one of the more abominable sins that GOD condemns; I guess those Churches are made by fake pastors and SATAN is preached out there.THAT thing was condemned by God but the GOD's house is celebrating a marriage of that:this is not a God's house but a fake one like Jesus said,the wolf will pass himself for a sheep.

Earth is in perdition and the humanity is going decayed with that;GOD will soon show his power;my own president have shown to us that he is FRANC-macons and he was made that by all those that made Europeans's presidents as francs-macons.FRANC_maconnerie is a part of Illuminati.They are everywhere and they do know the truth that I'm telling to you.THEY know so much stuffs that peoples don't know to better manipulate us for the accomplishments of SATAN...All that is from the spiritual dimension and only the initiated can know all that if they don't walk with GOD.You are not spiritual,this is why I start to feel tired when I speak with you...you speak by the first dimension(our dimension which is material and touchable);there is the second dimension that is invisible and that is the world of spirits(SATAN,Demons,GOD,angel s)...you should have the 3rd eyes to see them.I don't have it but GOD gave me the knowledge to speak you about that.

We already went over that. You can't prove your God exists much less that your God is the right God. Therefore, you cannot claim that your book is really God's book which you pointed out has many issues of translation and interpretation. Furthermore you can make no such claim about homosexuality and abominations because you are unschooled and foolish when it comes to such interpretation by your own admission. I you are sincere in your attempt to be as Jesus, you would refrain from making such judgments.

We went over that already. You cannot make such a claim because you cannot know the mind of God by reading a book. Didn't Jesus preach on the Commandments? Didn't Jesus speak of the greatest commandments? Didn't Jesus preach about living in non-judgment? Didn't Jesus reject the Law of Moses? Jesus preached nothing of homosexuality. In fact the word did not exist until the turn of the 20th century.
