    so then by your logic you must be a Christian too.

    making baseless generalizations is fun.

    “if you adhere to it strictly, one could only conclude that there is no god”
    that is if you only adhere to science, but then again if you just believe what can be proved by the scientific method then you are a fool and fall prey to the same circular logic Christians are said to have.

    you mention that they take a “community” with them and that is true, however as there is no equvalent state side why should there be one while deployed? after all “atheism isn’t a religion” and so would not have a form of “religious adviser/teacher” the closest thing they would have is psychiatrist which the military gives access to.

    creationism shouldn’t be taught in science class as it isn’t science.
    now before people start misunderstanding let me say that i personally do believe in creationism. however i also understand that creationism by its very nature cannot be science. science is the study of naturally reoccurring events while creationism claims a supernatural one time event happened. so we can see that the box science is in doesn’t cover what creationism claims.
    if our society stopped falling prey to scientism (not to be confused with scientology) i believe that a lot of headache with the creationism vs evolution debate would be solved.

    the problem with this creationism vs scientism debate is both sides are falling prey to what is known as “scientism” (not to be confused with Scientology).

    @Harry: i’ve seen many excuses including, “it is only saying that its a sin for heterosexuals to engage in homosexual sex” which doesn’t make any logical sense, “Jesus was gay” ignoring cultural context, “we don’t follow the old testament” this ignores the fact that for the first hundred years of Christianity the OT was the scriptures (yes we don’t “need” to follow the laws of the OT, however how can a person say “i love God” but then ignore what he commands?)

    you mistake “concurring the sin of homosexuality” means that you become heterosexual, but that isn’t the case (though i think can end up happening in some cases). the sin isn’t being attracted to someone of the same sex, it is lusting after them (and acting on said lust) which is a choice.
    if you ask me a bunch of the problems our culture faces would be fixed if it no longer viewed celibacy as a bad thing.

    @ Harry:
    you say that im twisting scripture because i’m explaining the historical context of the verse, but taking others only at face value. so i ask that you then explain the historical context of the verse and how it doesn’t apply to us. after all i am open to being shown to be wrong.

    and i think you are misunderstanding me. the sin(s) someone struggle with develop (for lack of a better word) and change over time. they don’t choose what sin(s) they end up struggling with it, nor are they born with it. and that sin is different for everyone, for example lets take the sin of lust… there are many who stuggle with it daily (i will admit i am one of those), it doesn’t mean we were born that way nor did we choose it, however we do choose to either defeat or be defeated by that sin.

    you like to pass around “sodomy” a lot, however i just did some research and no where does the bible actually mention sodomy. instead what generally is translated into “sodomite” is the word meaning “temple prostitute”.

  • May 19, 2014 at 2:41pm

    @ HarryPotter: there is no one born a homosexual just like no one is born a murderer, pedophile, adulterer, liar, thief, etc. however everyone has a sin that is their ‘struggle’. for some it may be lying, and for others it may be homosexuality.

    @HarryPotter: just because you are a pastor doesn’t mean you are a christian. if you are living in unrepentant sin you cannot be a Christian as “one cannot serve two masters”.
    ~divorce isn’t a sin if done for certain resons (i.e. sexual immorality)
    ~it isn’t a sin for there to be “powerful women” after all one of the judges (leaders of Israel before it had a king) was Deborah a woman. so why would God have a woman be the leader of his nation if it was a sin?
    ~to understand the verse talking about women shouldn’t speak in church you have to take it in context (not just the context of the chapter, but in the context of who it was written to). the verse was part of a letter to a specific church and in that time they followed the tradition of having women and men sit on different sides of the room during “service” this part was added to the letter in order to correct a problem that was going on where women were interrupting what was going on to ask questions to their husband (that may or may not have anything to do with what was being said) so this was to help bring order to the church service.
    ~people may have cited the bible to go against interracial relationships, but then again they also used it to commit murder, doesn’t mean they were correct. the part that was used told the Jewish people not to marry certain groups of people (which God also told them to wipe out from the face of the earth). however he did say that they could marry other groups (specifically c

    when i was deployed my unit was in charge of one of the base’s ECPs (the gate used to enter and exit the base) and one of the things we were told to keep an eye out for were suspicious people and one of the things that make people suspicious is taking pictures of the base. even though it was visible to the public people taking pictures could easily be taking said pictures to plan an attack on the base. the MPs were well in their right to detain the reporters considering they obviously didn’t get prior permission to take those pictures.

    @jjrglobal:
    why do you say if God existed he wouldn’t take one of his believers like this? just look at the Apostles… they died from crusifiction, beheading, clubbed, wiped, dragged by horses, stabbed, stoned, etc.heck the only Apostle that died “peacefully” was John.

    so tell me why he wouldn’t take one of his believers in a wave?

  • March 20, 2014 at 8:00pm

    that is true, however he was hated because he preached hate. they went from hating the sin to hating the sinner. the message of westboro instead of preaching that God loves us and provided a way out of sin their message was God hates us.

    theres an update to this story, ATF went to the judge and got the restraining order stopped (apparently without the store owner or his lawyer present) then raided the store.

  • March 15, 2014 at 10:07pm

    east, i wasn’t the one putting words in your mouth, GBTV was. as he said “if a boy brings girly stuff to the school, he will be bullied, AND AS EAST SAID, by his friends and enemies alike.”
    thank you for clarifying though.

  • March 15, 2014 at 9:43pm

    forgot to mention…
    i do agree with you hover, if i had a kid i would have no problem hearing that they were in a fight (win or lose) unless they were the ones that started it.

  • March 15, 2014 at 9:41pm

    however what happens if the bully never starts a fight? after all bullying doesn’t have to be physical.

  • March 15, 2014 at 9:38pm

    GBTV then East is wrong. if the person is bullying you then they are in no way a friend. sure they may tease you but then again teasing =/= bullying. sure it is a fact that it is a dream to completely get rid of bullying, but then again the same could be said about theft or murder and yet we try to punish it and keep it from happening. so how come bullying is okay since you can never completely get rid of it, but theft and murder aren’t?

    also how come its okay for girls to like “boy stuff” but as soon as a boy likes “girl stuff” the parents become horrible parents?

    besides the problem here isn’t that he was bullied, its that he was bullied and the school won’t do anything about it.

  • March 15, 2014 at 9:20pm

    so your “solution” for bullying is to just lay down and give up. maybe thats what we should have done with Hitler, just let him kill all the Jews. after all if there are no more jews he would stop killing people right?

    you know when i grew up i was always taught that to stop a bullying or someone else you stand up to them. its a shame that not many people apparently were taught this.

    your right MLP’s target market are girls. however it is a good and well made show (don’t personally watch it, but that doesn’t mean i can’t appreciate it for what it is.). “bronies” exist because it is a decent show and many of them aren’t gay nor are the wusses.

    by the way Eastinfection, the MLP of today IS NOT the MLP of the 80s.
