    I don't care whether he comments. But if it annoys him to read it, he doesn't have to. He does have that kind of control.

    As it should be to everyone. Being unable or unwilling to live as you claim to believe should be emotionally and psychologically stressful.

    And yet you do not ask questions or seek clarification in a communications breakdown. Instead you basically call the post stupid. Is this because you consider communications skills the only true sign of intelligence? Tell me, how well did you understand Einsteins Theories on Relativity? Obviously he was stupid if you couldn't understand what he was saying.

    It should force one to change their views in accordance with reality.

    Absolutely but I don't see heterosexuals trumpeting their sexuality on TV and getting standing ovations for "coming out."

    Well I figured that, with what he had to say about it.....myself, I find when I don't care about someone comments. I usually don't post anything up about it. I just move on to what the discussion is about with another. KnowwhatImean!

    Not at all. Especially when "reality" has no correlation with what the world SHOULD be. Y ii accept the idea that what the world IS defines what it SHOULD be and that's totally incorrect.

    Let me explain it this way. We have laws set before us in this life as well. The law says that murder is illegal, stealing is illegal, rape is illegal and other things. Someone may personally believe that murdering someone else isn't wrong, that stealing isn't wrong, that rape isn't wrong and then commit those acts with the personally held opinion that to do so is not wrong or illegal. When they are brought to court their actions are judged based on the word of law, not based on their subjective opinions that may or may not be correct or incorrect. If someone murdered another person under the personal belief that the person deserved it, that it was justified or that as the stronger individual they had a right to kill someone else they will still be judged by the letter of that law and judged accordingly by the higher power (in this case, the legal system). Their personal beliefs and interpretations didn't alter the truth of the law that murder is illegal, wrong and will be punished.
    Actually, you are incorrect. Their personal beliefs and interpretations are completely unchanged by the law. Their truth is their truth. That, however does not alter whether their truth will receive consequences under the current law. This is a good indication of why you are wrong. Personal beliefs are not wrong... as I just demonstrated to you. That does not mean that they may not cause consequences.

    The Bible is the ultimate authority for law, sin and the path to salvation as it is the Word of God. Someone can believe whatever they want, but if what they believe is in conflict with God's Word then what that person believes is wrong.
    Your comparison of BELIEF and LAW is illogical. Law is tangible. Belief is not. Law can cause consequences. Belief does not... or not any that you can prove. This is why you are wrong and why morals and beliefs are relative.

    Someone may believe that having an adulterous affair, homosexual sex, murder or any other thing that the Bible clearly says is an act of sin against God will be judged according to what is absolute, in that the person was absolutely wrong with God's Word being the absolute source of truth when it comes to "is this act right or wrong?"
    That depends on the belief system and the interpretation of God's words... AND whether one accepts that God's word is law. Since you cannot scientifically prove that it is, nor scientifically prove that there are consequences to violating YOUR interpretation, your words and edicts are just YOUR belief. Nothing more.

    Say one person believes in reincarnation, one is an atheist and believes that when we die we just rot and another is a Christian that believes in God and judgement as described in the Bible. When they die, are their beliefs subjective? Does each individual go to a reality that they themselves constructed simply because they constructed it and truth is subjective to the person?
    The answer is... we don't know. You can't prove anything you've said. What you fail to understand and what many others fail in the same way is that faith is not something that can be proven nor can it be tested. That's another reason why it is relative.

    As soon as you use the word "should" your comments move into personal opinion and have NOTHING to do with the world at large.
