What the Florida law on this Lamar? Does the State have to prove that he intended to have an actual 14 year old view pornography? (Jun 4, 2009 | post #44)
What palm tree? It was a plam tree that was involved. Get it straight man. (May 19, 2009 | post #13)
Typical response from a leftist who has no intelligent response to a well stated and reasoned opinion. Vulgarity and personal attacks are the fallback position of all mental midgets who cannot come up with a coherent response when faced with facts that oppose their own baseless opinions. Your response serves to further illustrate my point that many on the left live their lives based upon their own prurient impulses. (May 12, 2009 | post #88)
I Corinthians 6:9-10 (NASB) states: "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. (1Co 6:9-10 NASB) In those verses, the greek word that is translated as "homosexuals " in the New American Standard Bible is "arsenokoites " which means sodomite. The King James does not use the word homosexual, rather it states "abusers of themselves with mankind." Additionally, the Bible states "and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error." (Rom 1:27 NASB) This verse is a clear statement that men engaging in sexual acts with other men is "indecent " and unnatural. So, while you may be technically right that the Apostle Paul did not use the actual word "homosexual " when he wrote the first letter to the Corinthians, the meaning of what he wrote is clear.

Man, you mean she has dental training? Amazing. (Apr 23, 2009 | post #121)
Neither Republicans nor homosexuals are "abominations " merely because of their membership in a certain group. Certain ideas or practices that one or the other espouse may be abominable, but that does not make an entire group of people, or any one of its members, an abomination. Furthermore, God loves everyone equally whether they happen to be a Republican, homosexual or otherwise. God will judge each one of us by our actions and not merely because of our membership in a certain class or group. (Apr 23, 2009 | post #1204)
I knew this thread would eventually devolve into a name-calling contest. Viva freedom of speech! (Apr 23, 2009 | post #1203)
I really enjoy reading posts from people who bash the Bible and obviously have not even read it through. The dietary laws of the Old Testament were given to the Jews by God for a number of reasons. Those laws make a lot of sense when you read them in the context of when they were given. The dietary laws were abolished by God in the New Testament. Had you read the book of Acts, you would know that. As to your comment on slavery, I am not sure to which passage of scripture you refer. Nehemiah 5:5 refers to daughters of the Jews being enslaved by force, not by the choice of their parents. Leviticus chapter 25 talks about the Jews makings slaves of the nations surrounding them, but does not talk about the Jews making their own children slaves. It should also be noted that Leviticus 25 instructs the Jews to not rule over their slaves ruthlessly. Slavery throughout history has not been like slavery was here in America. Read the Bible, study it and then if you want to criticize, at least you will sound mildly intelligent while doing it. (Apr 22, 2009 | post #1087)
Really? Our founding fathers were not "the religious sort?" Do you not consider John Adams one of the founding fathers? He said: "The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principals of Christianity I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God." James Madison said, "We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. Weve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." George Washington said, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible." Sounds to me that they may have been the "religious type." (Apr 21, 2009 | post #915)
I find it interesting that your profile includes a scriptural reference (Romans 13:8-10), but you ignore what the Apostle Paul says in Romans, Chapter 1: Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. (Rom 1:22-27) The Word of God clearly states that homosexual acts are "indecent " and those committing them are "due the penalty of their error." The portion of the Book of Romans that you quote instructs us to have love one for another. Of course we are called to love one another, but loving others does not include sanctioning behavior that is clearly contrary to God's will as expressed in the Bible. (Apr 21, 2009 | post #43)
Hilton, as perverse and disgusting as he is, has a right to say whatever he wants pursuant to the First Amendment. Whenever an advocate of the "gay marriage" movement acts in the way that Hilton acted, it discredits their cause. Had Hilton been a rational, intelligent person, he would have used the occasion to explain why he believes what he believes and why what Miss California said was wrong. Instead, he took the opportunity to go on a childish rant akin to a temper tantrum on the floor of the supermarket. Hilton's behavior in this situation is a net positive for those of us opposed to the radical gay movement. His behavior exposes those on the forefront of the radical gay movement for what they are - intolerant hedonists. (Apr 21, 2009 | post #17)
"That's not the kind of woman I want to be Miss USA," he said. "Miss USA should represent all Americans and, with her answer, she instantly alienated millions of gays and lesbians and their friends." Hilton fails to look at the flip-side of his argument as usual. Had she answered that she was fully in favor of giving homosexuals the ability to "marry," she would have alienated the millions who oppose the state sanctioning homosexual unions. In an appearance Monday on MSNBC, Hilton said he was absolutely "shocked and incredibly frustrated and disappointed" with Prejean's stance. She told the truth and answered the question candidly and Hilton is shocked? I suppose that means that he expected her to lie about her beliefs. She told the truth and Hilton is disappointed. I suppose that means that Hilton wants everyone who has an opinion that is opposed to his to either lie or compromise their own values and accept his as gospel. Hilton's behavior as opposed to the behavior of Miss California is a clear illustration of the ridiculousness of the radical gay agenda. She tells the truth and she is attacked for it. Hilton may disagree with what she says, but his actions expose him for the child that he is. I suppose that Hilton and his ilk will not be satisfied until all Americans toe the "gay marriage" line. Hilton is going to be disappointed and frustrated for a long time to come. (Apr 21, 2009 | post #11)

Why the hatred toward the police Lamar? You got a beef with Johnny Law? (Apr 14, 2009 | post #8)
Hello, Lamar. Have not seen you posting on here in a while. I see your point here, but exactly how were the police supposed to find out what was in the room without putting themselves, and potentially the occupants of the room, in grave danger. Should they have gotten a robot with a camera? Knocked on the door and hope someone hopped up on meth with a gun was not in the room? Dress up as the UPS guy and knock on the door? The police threw gas into the room. They did not go in spraying bullets and using lethal force. Using gas not only protects the police, but protects those who could have been in the room from doing something stupid upon entry by the police. Police officers do not always do the right thing, but in this case, it appears to me that they did. I was a police officer for a long while. We were constantly evaluating our procedures and actions taken by officers on the street. I cannot speak for the Orange County S.O., but most police departments that I either worked for or am familiar with are constantly evaluating their actions and trying to improve if necessary.
