Its amazing how people can spend so much time on one subject claiming not to be Gay. It is not of human nature to spend so much time entertaining a subject not of interest that does not pertain directly to you. Let me break it down, If I start talking about foot ball , homeless, jobless, female genital mutilation (FGM), serial killers, child molesters and its not of interest to you, are going to pay attention to it? If you choose to pay a little attention to be polite, it won't be long before you find your opening to change the subject. There is a lot worse going on in the world then two consenting adults doing what they want to do. Let them answer judgment day cause everyone has their little closet secrets. Judging is no less a sin. Fornication doesn't generate much rage when it's discussed but when the issue of homosexuality comes up, people become very angry and start quoting the bible to support their beliefs. These same people who live and ignore fornication, which is outrightly condemned in the bible, suddenly become righteous warriors. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Romans 3:10 >>as it is written, "THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE"
hopefully now the disscussion board will have intellectual topics
lol....and the topic is still going strong....
it will continue to go strong because everyone has a different opinion. especially for people like myself, I will get on here when I am bored instead of facebook and reply to silly posts like the gay marriage one.
Yeah when you have a topic like gay marriage and abortion going strong there will be heated debate and tons of name calling. I used to report it, but it does no good so I just watch the madness now lol
It seems to be a broken record day in and day out...... just ignoring the madness. Above I made my point.
The majority of religiously based view points are, or cause, the broken records you describe by spewing the same empty rhetoric over and over. This seems to be true in most all the heavily debated threads, regardless of subject matter. By contrast, most opposing views in those threads do offer much of the intellectual content you claim to be lacking.
I could be bias in the above observation due to my atheist views, but from what I hope to be a purely logical standpoint it's readily apparent that the most intellectual statements I've had the privilege to read are expressed from a non theist standpoint. (wow, longest sentence ever.)
Seek, and ye shall find. I've been quite impressed by Rodney Gray
Lol occassionally, a religious poster, will post something very insightful. But, on the whole, when you take religion out of your arguement, I tend to be more impressed. It's pretty easy to make an argument from copy and pasting.
i agree nene it is a neverending battle, but i agree with you
I agree. actually @silverrose and I already had many discussions that we need better topics. This is getting ridiculous. Abortion and being Gay are overrated, boring and burnt out!!!! As well as were ya from, how old are you and whats your favorite color. Start a good conversation in your area...
RE: Discussion board getting out of control..
I totally agree. It seems every time you turn the TV on , allyou here about is Gay marriages being legalized in certain states, or sex offenders. I don't care about the gay marriages, but the sex offenders need to be beaten. All of this is getting out of control.
I'd generally agree with that. But I have only been hearing about the Presidential election, everytime I turn on the tv lately.
