"Well, if we're going to talk about "traditional marriage," I can think of no one better qualified to lay out ALL the details than America's BEST Christian, Betty Bowers!
Not exactly what the American Family Association or any of…"
"There is no such thing as a 'Sodomite'. That is not even a real word. I think the Sodom and Gomorrah story is fictional or at least legendary but I know homosexual sex had nothing to do with it. Homosexual sex doesn't destroy…"
""This bill is about the freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, and Gov. Perry supports it." - Spokesman for Perry
I wonder if by putting this bill through the system they are in turn provoking its own demise, as well as…"
"Two Cult Survivor,
I apologize for getting off topic, yes the JW's lie so much especially about the generation of member alive during 1914 will not die because the 'new system' will arrive and they will live on an earthly…"
"Adding to this again, when I lived in Texas a friend's wife died. He knew she would die from her ailment when he married her, but their love won out and they married anyway. I chose to visit her privately and sign the book while nobody was at…"
"I'm with you, TCS. A LOT of people may "mean well," but if they fail to empathize with whoever they're dealing with, ultimately, you get situations like the one you described in your previous comment and not far off of what…"
"There's a part of me that coulc not care less whether these people "meant well." The executioners of the Inquisition "meant well." Doesn't make what they did any less atrocious.
Granted, telling Larry that mom's in…"
"I love how the WBTS (one of the two cults I survived) has quietly dropped its claim that the "new system of things" will be ushered in "before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away." Flipping lying liars.
"Thank you for your well wishes. I do apologize for my rant. I have been told by friends that I am usually laid back about most things. I just had to vent. And I am usually not so colorful with my words, HA!
By the way Sentient Biped, my wife and I…"
Yes, when some religious persons act indignant , it is nice to come to Nexus. It's a safe haven. The atheistic Zion if you will. It's also a place where I can share comments from religious folk that act like buttheads with…"
There is a video of the Pope's 'exorcism' caught on film. The man isn't demon possessed, there are likely no 'real' demons. He's just delusional and doesn't want to accept personal responsiblity for his own behavior for his own dysfunctional life.
There is an ad that reads ' Do you support 'traditional' marriage? Vote Now"! .
No, I don't support 'traditional' marriage because there is no such thing. I support heterosexual and same-sex couples marry each other legally , yes. 'Traditional' marriage promoters largely do not believe that heterosexual women are co-equal to their husbands. Their only purpose in 'traditional' marriage is to sexually satisfy their husbands if they can and raise children and do all…
i've got no problem with everyone saying "merry christmas" on christmas day. however, they've turned it into an entire holiday season where it lasts a month or more. in those situations it should be perfectly acceptable to say "happy holidays" or call it a…
I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.
I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
