    Please read why I said it was a rant.
    You said it's a rant because I repeated something "over and over again."
    Well, I did repeat some things, but I only did so because I want a response.

    I'd say calling someone's post a rant is more of an ad hom than politely correcting their spelling.

    Yes, that's what I recommended.

    Religious practices and rituals, have nothing what so ever to do with God. God, is God, and has no need of kiss ups.

    Go back and read the thread. I have explained my reasoning. As I said if you don't like it, to bad.

    Well that is not the way to get one.

    Thanks for playing.

    Gimme a break! You made a mistake in your post and I pointed it out. That may not have been very gracious of me but I did explain it was a pet hate. Look at it this way: if I hadn't pointed out you were using the wrong word for your meaning, you might have gone on using it and having people thinking you were ignorant. So I've done you a favour!

    Re: Should Same Sex People be allowed to Marry

    Blackdog: No, not one bit. I know this sounds bad but I and my wife have had, and do have many gay friends. I don't really care if they are gay.

    I treat them with respect and in return they do the same. They also know I do not condone the gay relationships they are in. I do not rub it in the faces of my Friends, but I also do not encourage it.

    So I love the sinner and hate the sin. As I am commanded to do.



    Me: Yeah, that is bad. Why are they friends with someone who thinks the way you do? I don't understand it.

    A lot of the people that I argue with about this claim to have gay friends. I don't know whether to believe them or not.

    I have a gay best friend, and I know that if I thought the way you did, he'd have been out of my life from the moment he came out to me.

    If you have ever had anyone come out to you, you'd know there's no choice involved and there's nothing sinful about it.



    Blackdog: I was rolling my eyes at the fact that you and many others constantly attack the example rather then the point.

    The point was about sin, and the fact I believe in no levels of sin. Sin is sin, whether it be a murderer, thief, liar or a homosexual relationship.



    Me: Well, it's a bad example to use because it completely destroys any point you attempt to make.

    Homosexuality doesn't fit in to the category of sin to me. To my ears, it sounds like, "whether it be an apple, orange, banana...or asparagus."

    You can't not believe in sin. Sin is everywhere. Everyone sins. You sin, I sin, gay people sin. But the fact that homosexuals are homosexuals is not one of those sins.



    Blackdog: Yes. As I said I don't care that much about the issue. I think it is wrong to allow it, so why would I care?


    Me: You really just don't care that something you believe in is impeding on the lives of others?

    I'm sorry for being repetitive, but it's just so unbelievable to me. I know that people can be cold, but it's tough to swallow when you're directly faced with it...



    Blackdog: I have lots of gay friends, they seem to be having a great time down here in Florida. It does not look like they are suffering to me.

    In fact a majority of them don't even care about the marraige issue. Much like myself. Hmmm... Birds of a feather.



    Me: Again, not so sure if I believe that you have any gay friends. I just can't imagine it.

    It'd be like you being friends with someone who didn't agree with your "choice" to be whatever race you are and personally didn't believe you should have the right to vote or be married. But they still loved you as a person.



    Blackdog: That would depend on what they are pursuing to make themselves happy. Lets say a member of NAMBLA was seeking their form of happiness, would you still say yes? It is again an example.

    I am not in any way comparing gays to child molesters.

    I should not even have to say that.



    Me: If their form of happiness was harming a child, then of course not. In fact, I'd want them dead.

    I'm okay with anything that doesn't harm anyone or infringe on anyone else's rights.

    Homosexuality doesn't harm anyone or infringe on anyone else's rights. That's why I'm alright with that and do not see why this is even an issue.


    There you go, I shortened it up as best as I could.
