You comment re: "the same God" is patently false. Please reference Genesis 4:26b which says "then did men begin to call their gods by the name of Jehovah". Islam's god has many differences with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ if you will. Not the least of these differences is that God has a Son, one Jesus Christ; Islam's god has no son, or at least according to voluminous posts by some of the Islamic cheerleaders that have posted here. So, your claim is incorrect.
There are essentially only two gods mentioned in the Bible: the God and Father of Jesus Christ and the "god of this age", who goes by numerous other appellations some of which are satan, the devil, the prince of the power of the air, etc. etc. The second has a long history of blaming the first for the things he himself does. Some of his lies told to conceal his workings are: "there is no god" (a popular one on this site by some of the more vocal atheists), and of course the one in your post, namely that God/Jehovah and Allah are the same guy. They are not.

I’ve been using facebook for years. Has been a great way to catch up with people I grew up with and it is a great way to keep in touch with family and I’m a belong to other private groups where we can talk about stuff.
Facebook is not evil, it can be locked down so your information is not shared with the world but most people don’t take the time.
The amusing part though is my sister who is hard core conservative fell for this false BS and posted the message to her account. It wasn’t until I provided her with a link telling her it was a hoax that she removed it.
Again, facebook is not evil. Just be smart about how you use it.
Facebook is not safe I dont care how private your page is. Unless you are using a alias and phony profile info someone knows everything about you.You might think your info is locked down but believe me it isn't.
You are gullible and foolish if you think you can "lock down" Facebook to protect your privacy. The scams posted have validity in that members have no means to deny Facebook the right to use member accounts as they see fit. No matter how careful you may be, there are links throughout Facebook pages that require you to state and restate your preferences for "privacy". Whenever you fail to detect one of these links, or if you fail to fill in the information requested, your information is automatically given the default or "PUBLIC" designation.
In addition to this reality, members remain unaware that any person they "friend" who has privileges to their private pages is a carrier of this privacy. Their access to your privacy is "shared" with every one of their "friends". Do you remember what happened the first day you signed up for Facebook? If you paid attention and watched your computer screen you would have seen each and every one of your email contacts fly across your screen. You were then told that Facebook made all your email contacts "friends" so you would not feel bad as a new member without "friends" to share your experiences with.
Perhaps you want to share with us how you found a way to "lock down" Facebook in order to protect your rights to privacy? Don't feel bad. Recent stats indicated 1 out of 5 people WORLDWIDE were on Facebook AT THE SAME TIME, "sharing" an occurrence a few weeks ago. Am I paranoid?
How can so many be so blind?
That's why I still use the telephone. I used to have to pay $0.35/minute to talk to the next town, two miles away. I can now talk all day all over the US for the same $19.95/month. I can use inflection in my voice that does not translate in typed words.

He is only doing it in an attempt to spread his faith and nothing more. He could do all that you listed without a belief in a god.
But how many unbelievers actually do it? Do you? Have you? (me: yes and yes). When it’s your behind out there doing something similar in the name of humanism, at risk to life and limb, please do send or post pics. Until then….
The same way anyone does anything, they just don't pretend a god helped them.
September 29, 2015 at 2:00am
Oh look. Another person who thinks they have it all figured out and everyone else is wrong. How you practice worshiping is the only way and if you don’t practice my way, you are wrong.
Do you not see the irony in that?

Around the age of 38 I choose to become an atheist and think for myself and my life has become much more successful than when I was a Christian. My life has never been better since I left religion and god behind. I’m much happier and enjoy life for what it is. Knowing this is my only life I do my best to enjoy each day.
September 29, 2015 at 1:45am
There are many atheist who have overcome addiction and did it without a belief in a god.
September 29, 2015 at 1:26am
Why is your god the one true god? Man has been on this earth for a very long time and they have worshiped many gods and they continue to do so. What makes you the one that is true?
Those that call themselves Christians cannot even make up their minds on what is correct. There are more denominations of Christianity than there are versus in the bible. So which one is correct?
And then we have thousands of other religions across the globe. Are those that where born in another country and raise with another religion doomed because they where born in the wrong place but yet, you somehow was special enough to be born in the right place and raised in the proper religion.
There’s no legitimacy to any world religion due to its adherents being around for a long time. Christianity is not a religion because religion is man’s attempt to reach out to his god. Christianity is a relationship with God reaching out to mankind. The God of the Bible has the one marked distinction that no other man made god has, He interacts with his creation, He takes claim for His creation, His word is accurate and verifiable, and He says what He’ll do – before He does it. No man made god can make the same claim.
That there are many denominations in Christianity simply means that we worship in different ways. Some placing more emphasis on liturgy, others placing emphasis on the law and scripture, others on the equal importance of all aspects. Sometimes, its just a matter of order of worship. As long as the primary tenets of the faith are not altered – such as who God is, who Jesus Christ is and what he did, Salvation through grace through faith in Jesus Christ, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, - the differences in the secondary tenets of faith are a wonderful change. I celebrate the differences rather than mock them.
Not sure what your point is about religions across the globe. I’m sure you are aware that Christianity did not originate in America. It actually began in Israel when it was first called “The Way.” From there, it spread all over the world - eventually reaching the shores of the American continent.

@foxmodelb Kids don’t become potty trained on their own and when my daughter was 5 years old I was still giving her baths. Was I supposed to drop her in a tub filled with water and walk away?
The bottom line is yes, parents watch their children use the toilet. It is 100% normal.

And what will they see? Women go into stalls and close the door. Women’s restrooms can also get pretty nasty. I know this first hand as I’ve had to clean them when I was younger. Nobody ever wanted to get stuck with cleaning bathrooms because the women’s restroom was always a mess.
[-6] September 26, 2015 at 8:55pm
And 99% of men are not going to use the women’s restroom. Are you that stupid?
Destroyer of civilized behavior.........please FO and D. And I mean that sincerely.
It's the 1% I'm worried about. How hard is it to go left for MENS or RIGHT for women's Unless your just trying to poke the tiger. Keep poking and see what going happen!!!! Getting very very tired of you A-holes.
"And 99% of men are not going to use the women’s restroom. Are you that stupid?"
I'll give you that 1%....Only the freaks will.
And no,The stupidity lays squarely on your shoulders,and anyone stupid enough to believe your tripe.
I very seriously doubt you shared a Bathroom/Showers at an Airforce Facility with other women while you were "dating your wife"
Men don't see women in their panties and think "big-whoop" Men are sexually stimulated by what they SEE ! Victoria's Secret/lingerie,Porn etc.
Nor do women get out of the shower or toilet stall to see a man standing there in his underdrawer and think "big-whoop"A strange man is standing feet from me in a place that should be a safe place to do PRIVATE human functions.
What could this guy in his underwear possibly be doing in here !
She thinks oh My God,I'm going to be raped !
After reading thru your comments it would appear Your nothing but a voyer who gets off at the thought of peeing next to a female or getting a glimps of a female in a very private,vulnerable moment and therefore needs to justify your sickness by downplaying the very real threats to females young and old that will be possible by/to ANY freak if this is passed.
I truly hope you do not have any daughters or females allowed any alone time with in your life BC you sound like a predator.

If a woman who identifies their self as male was to walk into the same restroom you where in you would never take notice of them. They would use a stall and behind a closed door you would never know their sex. As for a male who identifies as a woman who walked into a woman’s restroom he would also have to use a stall behind a closed door. They simply want to go to the bathroom and nothing more. How is this an issue of safety or security?
The argument of that men will dress up like women on purpose doesn’t hold water. They could do that know and it simply doesn’t happen. There is nothing special to see in a public toilet.
And locker rooms, and communal showers. Male born male dressing as female walks into female bathroom and opens a stall door (they have such weak latches), "oh my, so sorry". Next stall, then the next. No leading, just peeking because he is dressed as one. I can't tell you the vast number of times a latch popped open while I was in a stall.
Most women cannot physically overwhelm a man. Most men CAN physically overwhelm a female, especially a girl child.

You are the one who needs to get their head straight. Why do you care so much about what someone does when they go to the bathroom. When is the last time you where using a public toilet did you catch a glance of someones privates?
You are an idiot. Since the same could be said of you. - But the fact is. This can affect anyone and everyone that uses the bathroom. Especially visiting or living in the area. or them trying to push this everywhere else. And especially if any tax payer dollars is/has been spent on this issue or in the faculties. Or if it affects locations where serves are needed to saves ones lives. Or is required by the citizens to use when dealing with mandatory government issues.
Not to mention you, nor the government have the right to put people into danger, nor liability. Barbecue that is a form of servitude and slavery to others. Especially when the gov doesn't compensate for such liability or increased risk to life. Especially physically and emotional. This is violence on the people. Simple as that. And should be treated as such. And this is using 100% Liberal, Progressive, Socialist and Communist ideology.
reference the privates. You obviously have not traveled very much. And have a very small tunnel experience of the world. Don't you. -- Funny how people like you complain about all the liberal issue of the day. And you deliberately put people in more danger. And against your own liberal propaganda.
Here is the way it works. People like you should be held accountable when something happens. If this passes. Because you are officially notified it will. Meaning you have for knowledge.
Put some skin in the game. Not talk. Bet your life!
But again. You are a B.S. hypocrite. Because you don't demand that females who identify and act like males be required to register for the Selective Service. Until then. You only prove that you are a bigot. And you have knowledge since I told you of it. - Hence when you support this, while not demanding the very same people stop discrimination against males. Then explain why any males should defend the rights of anyone such as you. Or the females being allowed to use male restrooms against their wills. Just another liberal hypocrite. With double standards for all.
And at some point there will be a backlash. And many backlashes can be nothing more than doing nothing and not coming to your rescue when you need us the most. Or just being 5 mins late. The day is coming.
Um, twice this month. Yesterday it was because a man was still pulling up his pants exiting a stall, the time before it was a preteen seeing how far back he could be while hitting the urinal - 3' or so...then it was all wall.
When someone announces they are "trans" puts on a dress, and rapes a young girl in a Houston bathroom-and it will happen- people like you will bear at least a little responsibility. You don't have the right to endanger people out of political correctness.

So when I was dating my wife who was in the Air Force and her floor, which allowed males but she had to announce when I was on the floor should never had allowed me to use the bathroom or shower that was on her floor?
Many times I walked down to the common bathroom and used it while other females where present. Even showered there as I would spend the night sometimes. Not a single female ever cared they ran into a male and not a single time did they ever see me naked and I never saw them naked. Sure, I saw them in their panties and bras and they saw me in my undies but big whoop.
Maybe because they knew who you were and that they'd rat you out if you pulled anything... that and the threat of their boyfriends and your now wife beating the he11 out of you.
Not ok in my book. That doesn't even happen between my kids in my own house.
 September 26, 2015 at 8:27pm
Twenty plus years ago we had a female who changed with us before and after hockey games. Some of us guys walked around naked, nobody cared. She never showered with us but again, nobody cared. I’ve also seen women come into the men’s room during Capitals games. It is rare men are using the stalls and some women knew the line was shorter. Again, nobody cared. They close a door and you can’t what they are doing.
When you use a public restroom do you go out of your way to start at the privates of other men? I know I don’t. Even if a man was to use a woman’s restroom, which I’ve done by mistake, you are forced to use a stall which requires you to close a door. Nothing can been seen.
There are some countries that have gender-neutral or unisex toilets too. When I was dating my wife she was in the Air Force and her floor was female only. When I stayed the night I had to use the same bathroom as the women. None of them ever cared if I was in the shower next to them or was using a toilet next to them. Nothing could be seen.
We use toilets to expel waste, not to catch glances of each others privates.
So based on Your experience and a few others we should
fundamentally change what the vast majority considers
common courtesy....call me an old white guy, not a dolt.
Two points...First, America is not Europe. I guess that the Middle East with no unisex bathrooms is wrong too? Comparison of different cultures does not make a position right. Second, so you snuck in and used the female restroom in the US Air Force barracks on the female floor. Highly doubt that it was the Air Force or Unit's policy (accepted practice) which likely said that official male visitors needed to use the male facilities despite any inconvenience. It certainly was not the policy in the US Army. And it was in a disciplined and controlled environment unlike any public restroom. Again, not a great basis of comparison nor rationale for approving such behavior. IMHO, this effort in Houston is just another example of breaking down "barriers" despite the societal reasons and acceptance of risk when things go wrong, molestation, rape, etc.
