    One is truly amazed at the enormous variety of ways the homosexuals and atheists come up with to demean the faith of complete strangers. Faith that they themselves lack and don't want others to have.

    There must be some sort of award for creativity in their mean, nacissistic little circles of superiority, rage and self-loathing. An award for striking out at those who have found happiness and satisfaction in life through religious faith.
    Most gay people I know believe in God, so you obviously have no clue what you are talking about.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Earth to Dezaad: Homosexuals have been attacking Christianity for the past thirty years. Those attacks are a virtual full time staple of this forum and all others.

    I thought it was supposed to be a well-armed citizenry that was a deterrent to criminal behavior.

    I've been involved in an industry which employs many Gays and it seemed to me that they were as religious any other group. If they were far left then, like most leftists, they tended to rubbish Christianity.

    Just out of curiousity, what industry would that be that employs many gays?

    There's a fairly obvious explanation. Religion has been watered down more and more over the course of my life. Authority has been ceded from the pastoral staff to the parishoners. The flock calls the shots and they each have their own flavour on religious teachings. The churches respond by stretching their principles, taking the edge off their teachings.

    More and more folks are rolling their own where it comes to religion. One from column A, two from column B.

    Hospitality and tourism.

    I worked in Germany, Australia, Canada and New Zealand as a waiter and bartender in several restaurants, bars and hotels and as a bouncer in a Gay bar in Melbourne. The problem in the Gay bar, oddly to me, was not the outsiders who came to beat on them but the Gays who, because they were Gay, often felt the need after a couple of drinks to prove their manliness. I was young. I needed the money.

    And Christianity has been murdering and torturing homosexuals for the past couple thousand years. Until roving gangs of gays are lynching Christians in the street, I don't think there's anything to complain about. The "attacks" that have you so upset are nothing more than what goes around coming around. And lucky for you, gays in the 21st century are a lot more civilized than Christians of past centuries.

    Where are all these Gays lynching Christians? Are Gay Muslims doing that?

    The parents are the starting blocks and kids from broken homes will probably go astray.
