Forget your appeals to authority. Outside of the Bible there's not a shred of evidence that Jesus Christ ever existed. The elephant in the room here is the fact that none of the supposed disciples are mentioned by a single historian either. No mentions of Paul preaching from Mars Hill or anywhere, no mentions of Peter bringing new doctrine to Rome no mentions of any disciples suffering for their faith or being martyred. We know the entries in Josephus were put there by the Church, Eusebius the infamous liar and church "historian" because had they been there Origen would surely have mentioned them in his arguments with pagans. It's the greatest story ever sold and all you have to support it is long debunked arguments and not a shred a of evidence.
What about the cake offended him? What artwork or words did the couple request that this bigot objected to? Did they demand he use gay flour? Homosexual eggs?
SOS. I did not. Is that relevant to our post or simply something like a trivial persuit or deflection.
Oh I worded that the wrong way. She was a teacher who taught a normal subject, and happened to do burlesque outside of school with a moniker/pseudonym to protect her identity. Someone happened to find videos of her on Facebook [ones she had not taken of herself], distributed them, and it got back to the parents who were pissed.
I don't know about you, but I aspire for my nation to be better than that, not just as good as like you are pushing for.
Yes. I too believed as you do, until I experienced God.
Old gelatinous orange men need lovin too!
Not my business what somebody's bedroom habits are, so long as it's consensual.
Smaller communities are more apt to bully people into believing. In a small town they will force out gay people. They will not allow an atheist to remain and treat them humanely. In larger communities one can be accepted and not become of the dark side of religion.
What's the matter, off your meds again?
This is not uncommon in research fields. I have read from different authors that the debates within the context of quantum physics even turn personal and can be very distressing. The climate debate is another classic example. I have developed a rule of thumb: the louder and nastier the vitriol, the more money there is to be made.
They hate anyone who is not exactly like them, politically, spiritually, economically, etc etc
I have had to assume it even more now with her health issues and still reassure her she is just important as she has always been
Hobby Lobby and Chick Fil A sued for an unrelated matter. The people sueing here were the homosexuals. You are once again referencing utilities, not proper small, private businesses.
BINGO...and it doesn't take long for being under a thumb to devolve into a knee on the back...trust & believe. Kids learn what they live...figuratively AND literally.
Wiser, more capable, older, yes. All these things and more.
A war broke out- also a worse story!!!
I agree! I rather meet someone in person at first, not online chat
One used pipeline only 60 years old...what a bargain at $4.5 Billion er ah um, make that at leat $10.5 Billion.
Reason and evidence I doubt you as nobody has presented a logical argument nor is there any evidence. Now personal experience? Good for you. What kind of shoes does he wear?
That's just a wall of text to me. And none of what you said answers my question about how 20 years here or there would change anything.
I thought you knew!!
Probably as good as yours, which has never seen daylight. Still waiting to hear the "POP"
I do not have superstitions. Thank God!!
Mel, is this a stealth dumpster fire thread?
