Brigot, thanks for correcting my mistake. My apologies to Ultra.

Ultra asks: “How come you were passed over for O-5?”
Ultra, that’s what Mother Goose says.
[-1] May 2, 2016 at 3:47am
No, the ones you like were. The others were the Believers you love to hate.
May 2, 2016 at 3:45am
They probably do, and some honest ones at that, chucklehead. Gads your bigotry is tiresome. Do you actually know any scientists, or do you just flap your bigoted lips?

Correction, most homosexuals are not pedophiles, and probably most pedophiles are not homosexual. But they aren’t mutually exclusive.
They also banded together for years, especially with NAMBLA until they became a known liability and had to be split off for the sake of the goal.
 May 2, 2016 at 3:37am
Ultra, I know you aren’t kidding. I also know you are incorrect. It’s an old story to spread about, but it’s a well known lie.
If I sit in my garage, and make sounds like an automobile, I don’t become one.
On the other hand, If I am a murderous megalomaniac, most people would not confuse me with a Christian – God certainly doesn’t.

There’s a group run by the Clintons that puts all other phony groups to shame.
Some “charitable” groups are phony for sure, and some are rock solid and worthy of notice. You have to check them out.
There’s scams all over the place, someone is always looking for easy money. This is where discernment and discrimination come in real handy.
Remember, it’s the love of money that’s the root of all kinds of evil. Don’t love yours too much, and don’t give yours to phonies. It’s your responsibility.
The problem with the IRS wasn’t that they were researching for phonies, it’s that they were only holding up applications of conservative groups – largely with no reason except a bigoted viewpoint that festered in their ranks.

No Ultra, they “believe” it is, they think it is, they “calculate” it is, but they don’t know it is.
I’ve noticed over the years how “scientists” keep pushing the age of the earth or the universe back and back and back. If they honestly “knew” how old it was, it shouldn’t change so much now should it?

What does it mean “I was raised as a Presbyterian”?
Perhaps what you mean is that you were raised by parents that besides all their other traits and associations, also attended a Presbyterian Church and took you along with them.
I was unaware that Presbyterians were boring people, I’ve only known a few, and hesitate to make blanket statements based upon such a small sample. But I’ll take your word that they bored you.
So, because the religion of your parents was boring (and by the way that’s true for most children), you toss out the baby with the bathwater and become an atheist? Is that truly the thing an intelligent person does?
Perhaps it goes much deeper than that. Perhaps you didn’t like God, or you resented his guidance. Perhaps you just didn’t like some of the hypocrisy you saw in the members of the church your parents took you to, and magnified that out of scope.
Really Ultra, why the hatred and bigotry you’ve shown here? Where does that come from?
 May 2, 2016 at 2:59am
No Ultra, the Bible does not contradict itself. Those that say that are usually those who have a very poor command of scripture. Others say it to try to look smart or to try to start an argument.
Every place someone has shown me that there is a “contradiction” I’ve seen their folly. But if you want to live out your life basing your bigotry on lies, go right ahead – you are in great company.
 May 2, 2016 at 2:48am
@Real, that wasn’t just narrow-minded, it was stooooopid.
May 2, 2016 at 2:35am
No Beck, whacko hatred is something you personify. Your bigotry is stupid, divisive, and childish.
[-1] May 2, 2016 at 2:32am
Beck, Spanky, NO, the issue is your extreme bigotry and intolerance.
While your deep seated hatred of God forces you to lash out, take it up with him. Insulting everyone you disagree with is a child’s way.
Intelligent people can discuss without resorting to cheap digs and attempts at denigration.
Grow up. you have become tedious.
[-2] May 2, 2016 at 2:24am
“Tobacco spitters” Really Spanky?
Your bigotry even mines the depth of childish name-calling in your attempt to insult and denigrate.
What an intolerant person you seem to be. Are you an atheist?
May 2, 2016 at 2:18am
Festivalgirl says: “Faith based organisations have more than their fare share of sexual misconduct.”
Is that dumb or what?
What is a “fare” share, or even a fair share? What would be an “unfair share”?
I sense a deep seated bigotry in this person.
May 2, 2016 at 2:14am
Of course we DO Maggie (assuming you are directing your comment at me).
On the other hand, of the LGBTs, isn’t it true that about 100% of the ‘T’s are transsexuals Maggie?
[-1] May 2, 2016 at 2:05am
Your list is in error (to be expected) because it is based on deep seated bigotry and hatred, but it has some truth. You hate people of faith because of an abnormal fear and an unfamiliarity with Believers.
Now, no matter how very much you want to, by going in your current direction you will never be a friend of mine. That’s DISCRIMINATION, and it’s true, valid, and acceptable.
It’s not that I hate or dislike you, I just tend to hang out with kind and tolerant people. When you grow up and become one of those, you will be welcome.
I don’t care what your sex is (or isn’t), I don’t care what’s between your legs (or isn’t). In my home, I only have one kind of bathroom, and all I invite in can use it, regardless.
I’ve had homosexuals use my facilities, heterosexuals, men, women, men who may feel like women, and women who may feel manly, perhaps even people that “feel” like gophers (I don’t know and don’t care). My only restriction is that only one person occupies the bathroom at a time, men, women, or children.
But when my wife is out in a public place and needs to use a bathroom, I don’t think a policy that makes it easier for a rapist, a voyeur or a sex deviant to get close to her in an enclosed private space, thereby putting her in real danger, is anything but stupid, asinine, and worthy of ridicule.

For Snooop, continued from Galatians 3:
19 Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator. 20 A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one.
21 Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. 22 But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
23 Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.
When Jesus sets you free, you are free indeed.

For Snooop: From Galatians 3:
10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” 11 Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” 12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.” 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
15 Brothers and sisters, let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case. 16 The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ.17 What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise.18 For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.

You are correct Snooop, that although Jesus “worked” on the Sabbath and although he allowed his disciples to pick grain from the fields on the Sabbath, Yet Jesus nor his disciples broke the 4th command in this because he knew the commands and more importantly their implications, in his heart.
You know how the legalistic Pharisees attempted to trap him, especially in the way he did things they thought were sinful to do on the Sabbath. They accused him of breaking the Sabbath more than once. It drove them nuts, so they set out to have him killed (even though he’d actually done nothing wrong).
Your legalism seems sadly misplaced, as you are aware of how the 4th command is treated in the New Testament. You seem to act much more like a Pharisee than a Christian in the way you attack Goodman. Jesus didn’t particularly like how the Pharisees squeezed the love of God out of his people.
Jesus came to fulfill the commandments and Paul explains their purpose had been satisfied with the knowledge that the commandments saved no one. If obeying commandments could save anyone, Christ died in vain. On the other hand, when Jesus sets you free, you are free indeed.
