Hello Shirley!

Hope you had a wonderful, love filled Easter!

Btw...that video...Demons...that I posted was from the production....The Passion 2016. It was a live modern musical account of the Crucifixion & Resurrection. Chris Daughtry played Judas...he was amazing. Seal played Pontius Pilate.

Mad World....https://youtu.be/DbfB2YrZ5nc



You should really watch the entire production....I watched when it was aired live.....so inspiring....awesome! :)


Mr. Jackal....

The gay couple were not refused service or a cake....they were refused a....wedding....cake. And even kindly given a referral to another baker that could fulfill their needs. :)


"After the above Baker decision...anti gays were coming out of the woodwork all over the country and making that claim."

Again....examples, please.

You mean the dating side has a separate Log in feature? If I want to post there, I have to somehow log in separately?


Yes, log into the forums, then click the Inbox/Mail/Profile link at the top left of the page.
It will take you to a separate log in page for the dating side.

Yet a belief or an idea becomes a hypothesis which may evolve into a theory, often being revised and which only MAY be definitively proven to then become a Law.


Great, but I am referring to ideas and beliefs in general. They are not deserving of respect because one merely harbors them. Should I "respect" the beliefs of an idiot extremist who believes homosexuals and "infidels" should be beheaded?


So what exactly is your position? Bit contradictory?


I'm not quite sure what you're getting at here. My position is question everything. Christianity cares not a single iota about one's skepticism. The message is believe it anyway. Anything that's proposed with a "believe or else" threat is PRECISELY what should be questioned.


So is that why some refuse to believe that climate change is caused by global warming and will have world wide catastrophic consequences?

Demands belief backed by a threat.....I guess, until the catastrophe is too wide spread to consider coincidence and dismiss.

(sigh) The difference is demonstrable evidence in regard to climate change.


I have :) This article is a special gift for those whom wish to read it, or not...

I didn't need to read this. Not once have I expressed a desire for science to provide proof, just compelling evidence to demonstrate a "God" is even possible, let alone actually exists. It has not done so.

But you know what could prove a God's existence? A God actually revealing itself. NO science involved.

Where did you see the word "demand"? How about we think of it as a request?

Demands fortified with nasty threats aren't my bag.

^Sorry for laughing, Mr. Pig....

I had a sudden vision of you....hair blowing in the breeze....arms wide open...imploring God....

"Reveal yourself! Show me you are real!"


What can I say? I have a vivid imagination! Lol!

You had a vision of me. Mmm. (fanning self)

Oh, and one other thing I have to say is, it's probably best to not assocociate politics with this matter. Anyone who believes "SJW" types are my "allies" because we agree on the "God" issue is in for one hell of a rude awakening.

Mr. Jack my general comment was not directed at any gender nor anyone in specific, other than by age. From my personal experiences many of those whom have not experienced LTR's are highly judgmental. Seems disturbing to me that many assume the spiritual are. Possibly its because Im correct.

Congrats SurelyShirley on day 64 . And doing it here and now on POF.... Who could ask for more?

And I do think POF, and all of the worlds ideas and people can be combined. It's only been going on for as long as we have. Even though we may go through some rough patches in our journey forward.... Overall I think things are getting better.

So yes, combination is not just possible but perhaps necessary for us to continue? It sure couldn't hurt anything.

"""No accusations here....just observations. """

Is the inability to realistically see oneself a typically religious thing? It just seems so common among the self-righteous to me.


self-righteous
/?s?lf'r??t??s/
adjective
having or characterized by a certainty, especially an unfounded one, that one is totally correct or morally superior.
"self-righteous indignation and complacency"
synonymes : sanctimonious, holier-than-thou, self-satisfied, smug, priggish, complacent, too good to be true, pious, pietistic, moralizing, unctuous, superior, mealy-mouthed, hypocritical; Plus

^^^^^^
Hmmmm?
I aspire to be truly "pious" but I admit that it takes a great deal of strength to maintain faith in the face of extreme unbelief. I don't identify with the others.....you?

^^^^ well considering there are 4200 religions in the world, I guess in the face of such astronomical odds that you believe in the correct God, being "pious" is a good thing. Wouldn't it be something if God was Zeus all along :-)

I actually have no trouble identifying with people of any faith...so long as they are not that devout. When it comes to the "true believers"....whether it be Born agains, Orthodox Jews, whatever, I must admit I always look at them differently, so no I do not "identify" with them.

I once dated a girl (several years during college)...long, long ago and she was the "perfect" woman, the most gorgeous blue eyes possible, very intelligent, a much better student than I was at the time, a real fox, loved sex and one attribute that I really liked about her...she was mad about me and we had a unique intimate connection. So why didn't we get married? Because she was a strong believer in "God" and I wasn't (She was a Protestant by the way). In the end, that unfortunately led to irreconcilable differences. It wasn't that I was Jewish that was the problem... that didn't matter. It was that she strongly believed in God and I didn't. Take this for what it is worth. Not saying believers and non-believers can not find their way together...but I do think it is a huge roadblock, and we were both t0o young at the time to deal with the issues presented. Had we met later in life, we would likely have had a much better chance.

Often we need many crutches to deal with this world doesn't matter whether it's faith, substance, whatever . Hang on a minute gotta tap my mirror , ooh that was good!
While one cannot identify with "others" as we are a "self". You know you have to be really freaking, over the top high , stoned and drunk, delusional to believe " all of us are not others to someone" and that "our self identified other" is the "only group" that is " righteous" in "belonging "and the "correct "group of others.
we are the human race: No? what is this other of whom you speak?

"The point is that I see a huge problem is using the Constitution to justify discrimination under guises of Freedom of Religion. Practice your religion all you want, so long as you don't swing your arms so wide your fist collides with my nose. "

>>>ever meet someone who supports a Christian business not giving health care or wedding cakes....spout off about libs helping Muslims bring sharia law to their town? golly, you'd think they'd be tickled pink (oops, wrong color) someone wanted religious law. i guess some religious law is more equal than others, to borrow a phrase. but then, i never got why denying a same sex couple a pastry was the greatest thing since sliced eucharist wafer but a serial adulterer who cheats on his wife with a porn star is loveable. i guess some sins are more equal than others, too.

"But you know what could prove a God's existence? A God actually revealing itself. NO science involved."

>>>if we can be cast into the fires of Hell for idolotry...the least we can ask for is a little help in the decision-making. it would only be fair.

Quite the admission, Mr. Bald!

Guess we can see why a gay American started the #Walkaway movement and Jews have the #Jexodus from the Democratic party! Ya'll are trying to kill them by bringing Sharia law to America!!!


But don't worry folks! Trump is going to win in 2020 and we, conservatives, will NOT let that happen!

Sheesh! Ya'll are getting scarier by the minute! :/

^You're going to have to ask, Mr. Bald that. Those were his words not mine!

Full context:

"ever meet someone who supports a Christian business not giving health care or wedding cakes....spout off about libs helping Muslims bring sharia law to their town? golly, you'd think they'd be tickled pink (oops, wrong color) someone wanted religious law. i guess some religious law is more equal than others, to borrow a phrase. "


Guess he believes Sharia law is equivalent to the 10 Commandments! Yikes!!!
