    I don’t know why so many are saying it’s a freedom of speech issue, it’s more of a freedom of religion issue. Now I myself don’t have a religion, nor believe in a higher power, however just because I do not does not mean other’s don’t.

    I think that if you want to show your religion or have clubs or what not, you should be able to without repercussions. If you were trying to shove religion down peoples throats, that’s a different story, however this does not seem to be the case here.

    I believe unless these religious clubs or members are not causing any problems and not trying to tell others they will go to Hell for not believing, then they should be allowed to express their freedom of religion right.

    First off to all those that are being hateful and prejudiced against Atheists and anyone that dosen’t believe in “your religion”, you need to take a step back and review yourself. You need to leave the Judging to God if you are a “Christian”, because isn’t that what it basically say’s in the Bible?

    Now on to another topic which I am very well studied on, OBE’s, or more commonly known as “Out of Body Experience”. An OBE, is where you leave your physical body and travel in you “spiritual” one, you may call it your “ghost” form if you are uncomfortable with “spirit”.

    Many people claim to have OBE’s and it does not just happen to adults, but can happen to anyone. Many people claim to have an OBE while in a coma, they describe a scene where they are floating in mid air or standing and observing themselves and anyone else in the room. They can sometimes understand what’s happening and sometimes they can’t, but all who have this experience can claim to the simple fact that they were conscious through out the ordeal.

    Now there is other names for this phenomenon such as: Astral Traveling and Astral Projection, some people claim you can learn to “astral travel”, that may be true, but I have yet to accomplish that. Now if you want to go deeper into this subject, you can look at quantum leaping, it’s the mixture between quantum physics and astral travel and is rather interesting.

    Now whether this man did go to Heaven is to be argued by many, study up on

    @PONDMANHANK What does that have to do with this article? I don’t see how you get from the Boy Scouts to political elections.

    I mean, I am voting for Mitt Romney,but I am just saying that the post in question doesn’t really have a place in this Article, it would best be reserved for a political one. Even then if you found one, you need to specify on what you are talking about. Your post is really just made up of rambling and no solid foundation on which to base what you are truly talking about.

    Why do girls have to know your straight? So they know you are available.

    It is the same for LGBT’s, they let people know so they can have a relationship with someone who believes as they do.

    Think before you say.

    hahaha oh I see, it was a glitch in they site, it hid my post temporarily and didn’t show it again until I posted.

    I apologize, I thought someone had taken down my post and like anyone who believes in what they say and think someone took down what they said because it disagreed with them I reacted harshly.

    Anyways, I apologize again, but I don’t apologize for what I believe in.

  • October 6, 2012 at 2:52pm

    Apparently this site doesn’t like it when you mention “religion” in a non-supportive way.

    Though I will post this, it will sum up my other post before it was so rudely taken down by mod’s that can’t stand someone questioning their religion.

    I think religion is a poor excuse to deny this guy’s right to be an Eagle Scout, which is a great honor in the Boy Scouts. I will say again that those who use religion in this manner are close minded egotistical hypocritical people that can’t seem to understand that religion is a “Go-around-Come-Around” type of thing. When a “Christian” see’s something they don’t like that disagrees with their beliefs, they shun it. Though you let a “Christian” do something that contradicts their beliefs they ignore it and pretend it’s not sin.

    Sin is sin yall, understand that before you consider even thinking about going to Heaven.

    Sweep around your own doorstep before you try and sweep around someone else’s

    Well there you go, religion at it again, yes the family knew how the organization stood on homosexuality because of their close minded egotistical selves, but maybe they were hoping for a change of heart seeing as what you have to go through to become an eagle scout.

    Religion is something that has been debated for centuries and will continue to be debated on, but I believe that if you “really” are a “christian” as you claim, then you need to stop with all of this “I don’t like ‘homosexuals’ because God said so”. You know God said “Though shall not judge” oops looks like you already sinned on that account by denying him his right to be an eagle scout because you judged him on his sexuality. Also God said “Love thy neighbor” Oops there’s another sin (yall are just racking up aren’t yall?) because yall aren’t showing much love by denying him because of his sexual orientation.

    Christians are so easy to jump on the religious boat when someone else does something that “disagrees” with their “religious” belief, but you let a christian do something that conflicts with the bible and it’s “all good”, because they turn around andignore it and pretend they didn’t just commit a sin. Sin is sin, no matter what you do, so just keep that in mind when yall think yall are going to heaven.

    @GOLDI-LOX Ahh, OK, just a misunderstanding, I apologize. I agree with you and I wish more people would see it this way.

    America is going down and fast no is this all to blame on Obama? No, we were in bad shape before he took office, but he didn’t help any and is turning this country into the direction of communism. That’s why I want Romney in, now is he all that and a bag of chips? No, he has his faults, but he is a stepping stone in the right direction and will help get our country back to where it needs to be.

    Some may say I am racist and that’s why I want Romney, that is not true, if Herman Cain was still running I would have voted for him. I seen the stuff the press and media were saying about his past, but that’s just it, it was his “past”. Everyone makes mistakes.

    Obama like many politicians has made many promises and like most he didn’t fulfill them, but what makes him different from all the rest was his attitude.He went golfing for times than not, vacation to Hawaii and other hot spots, etc… While we the American population suffered, it wasn’t just Whites either it was also Blacks and Hispanics and every other American citizen.

    So when you vote, take into consideration of who would be the “BEST” candidate not the one who can make the most promises.

    It cut off my last words there but I said “Don’t twist my words, understand them”.

  • October 4, 2012 at 8:00pm

    @GOLDI-LOX Where in my post did I say “Innocent”? Also on another note I made it clear (or so I thought) that people blame there mistakes or actions on “religion” to much. It has gotten worse over the years, everyone wants to say (that is most Christians), that the “devil” must have made that happen or “demons” must have possessed them, causing them to act this way.

    In essence you and them are giving a way out of a crime, a way out of taking blame. Whether or not God and Satan (Lucifer) is real is beside the point. Religion has always acted as a scapegoat, and to those who believe in God tend to believe the person that claims they were doing god’s work or the demon posses ed them and to those who don’t believe in God just rule them insane.

    Either way they have a way out, I pointed that out to “Hoot_Owl”, because she basically said the devil was controlling her, so don’t you see that we are just giving people a way out of the crime they committed ALONE, they know what they were doing, they understand what they were doing, they didn’t have a “Spirit” possessing them, they just wanted to use the excuse to try and get out of the crime and if you know law, when she goes in the courtroom they will plead “temporary insanity” or “mentally unstable” then she will go to a correctional facility and be released a couple of months later.

    I also pointed out that “Hitler” used the same method or scapegoat, he claimed he was doing “God’s” will.

    Don’t tw

  • October 4, 2012 at 12:11pm

    ._…..so your saying that the “devil” caused her to stuff “Bible” pages in her infants mouth? So in essence you are saying it is not the woman’s fault at all, but some mythical creature that may or may not exist.

    If we use that excuse then we have to us it again for people that say they were religious, but insane, that have ever killed someone. So we would say that Hitler was possessed by the devil, so it wasn’t his fault that he killed all those Jews.

    I think Religion is used as an excuse for to many things these day’s and it’s time that it’s stopped and people realize it’s the persons fault not the “devil’s” that they claim possess them.

    @ SLEEZEVIL Actually some people can’t control there weight, or “Obesity” as you crudely put it. The condition is known as ‘Hypothyroidism’, people with the condition can’t control the weight they have, so even if they wanted to lose it, it’s near to impossible to without some sort of surgery.

    On to another issue, this woman is not “Fat”, she is not “Obese”, I have seen people 3 times her size (Yes, I actually have to those who would say I haven’t). To point out that she is “Obese” or “Fat” is an ignorant statement and the only reason it would be made is for the person who made the comment feel better about themselves (Example: You)

    For you to say it makes you “Sick” is really sorry, if it makes you so “sick” why are you commenting at all? If something made me sick I wouldn’t hang around and comment, let alone make “3″ posts about it.

    There are some people that can control there weight, I agree with you on that one point, but to abuse someone about there wight is unnecessary and cruel, yes we give her support and congratulate her. Why? Because she stood up to someone like you and didn’t take what he/she said to heart, because everyone knows people like you aren’t worth it.

    So let me say this, next time you want to poke fun at someone or abuse them……Look in the mirror first.

    @Hanner there you go again Judging if your a true Christian you know your supposed to save the Judging for God, am I right? “Though shall not judge” so if you keep judging guess who else wont be going to heaven anytime soon. I love how you try to justify your actions in the name of religion, wait you know what , I am not people have been doing it for years: Hitler and Stalin for example.

  • October 1, 2012 at 3:43pm

    @Hanner The “Spiritual fight” you speak of I doubt is real, as for people saying the “devil” made them gay is really a far fetched idea. God say’s he loves all of us, but can’t allow “Gay’s” into heaven(not quoted, just summed up) then I do not want to enter the gates of Heaven because I feel that a God like that who cannot accept his creations sexual preferences is not a God I would want to follow.

    Now before anyone say’s anything, no I do no need “saving”, “prayed” for, or anything of the sort.

    Also Hanner and everyone else, I again say that the Bible say’s “though shall not judge” and yet here you all are, Judging.

  • October 1, 2012 at 12:21pm

    @Hanner Really? So you mean to tell me that there is some “demon” or “unclean spirit” as you put it, possessing them? I take it your straight, what if I told you that there was an unclean spirit possessing you and you need a spiritual God to help you?

    If your going to use a “Higher power” or “Religious” views get your facts straight, the bible has two testaments, old and new, and the only place it says in the bible where homosexuality is bad is the old testament. The new testament is there because God had a son Jesus that died for your sins and not anywhere in the new testament do you find where homosexuality is bad. So what do you believe?

    Also the Bible was written by “Man” saying that they got this information from God and Jesus, you know mankind is corrupt, so why not slip a lie here and there while they were writing? Another this about the Bible is it doesn’t have all the books, the Bible is basically made up of journey and testimony’s of those that lived back then and is put together, but not all of them made it into the Bible because “Man” chose what to put in and leave out.

    Just because they used Identical twins doesn’t make their study correct. Identical twins may look the same and have some of the same genetic markers as the other, but if you delve deeper you discover that identical twins don’t always agree on something or like the same thing as the other. So to suggest that scientists have said that there is no “Gay gene” is preposterous, all they have discovered is the same thing that has already been found out before: Twins can like other things and not agree on anything.

    You forget that scientists and doctors tell you that they do not have all the answers and that they also point out in most of there “Experiments” is that there work isn’t pure truth and that they can only “hypothesize” on it.

    So that being said, you that disbelieve merely because of lack of scientific proof or because of a religious reason need to take a second look at things. Also if I may point out, no one asks how you were born straight or go around telling you it’s impossible, you were born that way just as some are born different like blacks and whites. We are all human, we are all equal, mankind just has ways of trying to make itself feel and look better by being racist and criticizing others because you can’t handle someone being different.

  • October 1, 2012 at 11:23am

    The brain is a tricky thing, what you have to understand is that scientists and doctors alike are still trying to decode what really makes us tick. The long term and short term memories of individuals are really random, but genetically you like certain things and if those certain things are some types of food or music you will most likely remember it. So yes, they are genetic markers, but think of it as a tree with many branches one tree stands for one specific genetic marker, for instance “Likes” (Just using it as an example) and that the tree has many branches which contain the specific likes of the individual in question.

    So another genetic marker would be your sexual orientation and it would have one branch or many branches depending on the person in question. So again I say yes those that you used would be examples, however they would be branches to one single genetic marker among the other genetic markers that make us who we are.

  • October 1, 2012 at 9:46am

    Actually it is genetic, if you have ever visited a person who has lost all memory, be it by accident or sickness, they remember there sexual orientation. How would you explain it? If it wasn’t genetic then they wouldn’t remember it, it would be like you are referring to a “choice”. However they do remember, so somewhere in the persons genetic makeup is a determination of what your sexual orientation is.

    I agree with Gov. Jerry Brown and fully support this because the “reparative therapy” is nothing but damaging. This isn’t a proven science and the people who it is used on are damaged and it increases the suicidal rate. Trying to change someone from Gay to straight is like trying to do the opposite, it just dosen’t work and it causes damage without any benefits
