    Enjoy.

    Consider it your Christmas Bible Study.
    Is that what he quoted?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

    Have you ever considering following His teachings? It's Christmas, so why not start today?

    The only thing topsy turvy was your assertion.

    Which is an incredible arrogant assumption.


    Nothing topsy turvey about it. If Jesus existed, that would be reality of it.

    He spoke out about that he was against.
    It is most likely he didn't speak out against something because he wasn't opposed to it.

    And as stated; the persecution of gay folks, in their belief, would have been the norm, the fact that he didn't speak out against it says far more.

    .
    and since He didn't speak out against homosexuality.........

    Like, Duh!

    You can't even follow your own assertions to their rightful conclusions.

    You think you know better than Jesus, and you call ME arrogant?

    Which beside the point. Singing doesn't mean happy. Check out the birth of the blues and slaves singing. It's not his experiences that are in question. It's the mindset that leads to his conclusions of these experiences.

    The connection is clear: when subjugated, happy. When free, unhappy. You can't pretend that isn't there.

    Thank you, so you have NO theological background, and further established yourself hostile to Christians as a general approach, and now you want to bat around scripture like you know what you are talking about?

    Your opinion concerning scripture means nothing to me, and you ought to be ashamed that you are so dishonestly using the bible in your smear of someone who answered the question paraphrasingly accurate. You are trying to use the bible against him, and are ignorant for that reason. That's my opinion.

    There is no connection except that which you made up.
    He spoke about his experience.
    It may be the norm or isolated. It does not change thew fact that it was his experience.
    Anything else are the manifestations of your own biased thoughts.

    So, why waste your time commenting then? Be honest, you wrote your small chastisement to the general board in here to kill a thread because you don't think we should be discussing it. Well, too damned bad for you, that we don't take direction from you isn't it?

    Destruction of freedom of speech? Since when were private companies part of the government?
    I don't think it is about Freedom of speech as much as it is a culture war type of controversy.

    I don't get it.
    I'm quite sure of that. But that doesn't mean that others shouldn't discuss it, just that you should educate yourself on the topic.

    Meanwhile, while America debates this non story...
    Your opinion. I can assure you that it has dominated the news cycle for a more than a few days now.

    ...our freedoms are REALLY being curtailed by an out of control government, and we don't seem to give a damn...
    Not true. Is there not a thread or two, or more on the NSA on this site?

    ...to the point where we believe this non story becomes more important than the real life crap that is happening right in front of us.
    Oh, I don't believe that, if you want to then by all means, but you only show that you think people should only talk about what YOU think is relevant in these times then by all means think that, but people can also think you are quite arrogant for expressing it.

    Bull, you conflate to make yourself feel better about the lies being told about this man.
