I agree. I don't see any reason to think that self-identifying Christians who don't go to church might not actually be Christians.
Boobs are usually enough to make them drool and hit light poles.
Oh, and my flight home I'm sitting in front of a small child who apparently wants to be a part of Riverdance. The damn kid kicked my seat the whole way. Her freaking mother, her face in her phone the whole time. How do you not notice that? People have no common courtesy anymore.
to most folks not until they see the fiery flames, then it's too late :(
Where do you find me trying to change religion? Once again, you are not comprehending simple English and going on about it.
Never smile at them. No: you can't be friendly with a crocodile.
"any freedom of choice goes away once addicted"
True. We can only comprehend and "detect" what our finite physical brains will allow. Absolute reality is only known by the Absolute.
You were tough!
Doing righteous doesn't mean he didn't make a sin. I couldn't steal money for the poor then claiming, I'm doing righteous!
Present the evidence that evolution doesn't work the way you think it does? How about you present the definition of "micro evolution" and "macro evolution" you use? That way we know what we're working with.
Actually Rob was the best councilor Toronto ever had but he was lacking as mayor. Tory may be better than Miller but not much.
Objective morality isn?t a question. It?s not even a complete thought. You need at least a noun and a verb to make a complete thought.
This whole continent used to belong to people of color. So I disagree.
So you saw me quote the hadith books, recorded by the most respected muslims and acknowledged as truth in most muslim communities?
Bra, PRB upvotes are cult-right participation trophies.
To play devil's advocate, sometimes it isn't their fault if they cannot hold a job down long term. I just got off the phone with my friend who has sickle cell. She is always getting and losing jobs because she gets sick often and is hospitalized. She let's the employer know up front that she has a disability, and they're cool with it UNTIL she has to be hospitalized and then she always gets terminated.
The concept of "agreeing to disagree" seems a little silly and backwards. Why does there need to be an agreement on each having their own opinion? ...it's almost as if it's saying they need each other's permission to have an opinion....doesn't seem healthy to approach it from that angle. Maybe just accept that everyone is going to have an opinion in life and those aren't always going to align with your own.
Science is merely a man made tool used to decipher objective physical reality. I am not saying that spiritual stuff, that is, an "invisible energy" that exists outside of our physical senses, and which effects our minds, or something, does not exist, only that in order to prove it, since we can not see it or detect it directly or measure it with our best scientific instruments, we could only hope to infer its existence. Of course, many folks swear that spiritual stuff exists based on their subjective experience, which is cool for them, but not observable or replicable by the scientist and those who require physical proof of the existence of stuff that they "believe" in.
Flip phone man....flip phones :)
Past laws against interracial marriage violated the right to form a real marriage in a way that laws defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman do not violate it. The argument about what the equal rights of all citizens entail for marriage laws turns on how marriage is defined. If marriage is, by its very nature, oriented toward procreation, the refusal to redefine it to accommodate two men does not ?discriminate? against them any more than the military does against the flat-footed.
Jihad has two meanings. Fighting against the enemies of Islam or the struggle within oneself against sin. So how many of which do we have here? Do we really have to be enemies of Islam. If not, and they can live peacefully here with all the inherent rights of Americans, then what would they fight against?
You keep speaking of this Abrahamic god but refuse to quantify this.
Personally as long as people aren't harming other's I couldn't care less what they do. That goes for one person or any group of consenting people. Whatever dynamic works for that group is fine with me up to the point that it directly interferes with others.
oh its no fantasy - i know you are a professional toilet cleaner.
Well yes. Breaking free of society's demand of you and becoming the person you want to be is such a liberating and glorious feeling.
