Catholic Church Waging War on Women and Gays

“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

What is God's purpose when He severely reprimands sin in believers' lives? What attitudes and behaviors must we have to be able to receive such a correction?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

When asked whether she will raise her son as an atheist:

Itís very interesting that you ask that. My life before I had my child was abstract. Now, once you have the child, thatís no longer theory. You actually are now bringing up this tiny human being, innocent, helpless.

And so you have to ask yourself,ďDo I really want to bring him up with the idea that there is no God?Ē And my approach is ó and my husband agrees with me ó no, Iím not going to tell my son there is no God. Why? Because when I was growing up I was told there is a God.

In our society, many people of all ages are lonely and feel isolated. They are looking for meaningful relationships. God's plan for the church is that we be the connection to one another, so should be today's church family. We should find joy in "doing life together."

When it pertains to Allah, do you have a "critical spirit?"

And you still haven't answered my question. Did Jehovah convert to Christianity?

How hard up for attention do people have to be to believe that an invisible deity is in love with them.

Is a deity in love with a cat, a dog, or a monkey???

"NO" you say.

Well, what makes you think you are so much more adorable than these fussy, furry animals?

It certainly can't be human intelligence that a deity finds so adorable.

The question then becomes ... how far below should a deity go?

I've never understood just what it is we're supposed to be "saved from". God makes us, then makes us so rotten we can't even be in His Presence. We sure don't have much going for us, do we? I thought God doesn't make mistakes- well, He didn't get anything right with us, did He?

Well I guess we can't fault "all" gods for creating us as rotten parts of his tree.

NOW ... the trick is, to find out which one of the gods was the first one and the REAL one that created everything, including us bad apples, so that we can put the blame where it belongs.

From my perspective, picking on false gods is not the answer ... especially if we want to keep on the paths of bad-apple righteousness.

But in order to come to any conclusion of which god is responsible for this creating such a mess, it's going to take some "infallible" detective skills.

I don't know about you ... but that leaves me out of the picture.

When that first creating-god had a good thing going, as according to at least some theologians, we were all invisible, I just don't understand why the creator felt a need to create the first man or woman out of material that falls so far short of perfection.

It seems to me that if my kiddies were behaving themselves in spirit, I wouldn't be inclined to put their spirits into cell-infested bodies that I knew would become ill and result in the extreme suffering "of" my kiddies.

It belies any sense of logic to even go there and think such nasty thoughts of a supposed perfect and holy creator.

My guess is ... humans first created the creator, or creators, and because they didn't know any better, they created flawed images in their own minds ... and therein LIES the problem.

But its any body's guess, as the proof of human stupidity is plain ... and whether one, or thousands of gods exist, is still "up for grabs."

I find it ironic that Christians that for centuries persecuted verbally and physically, even to put homosexuals to death, are now coming around as though they made a "slight" mistake.

It was religion that caused the problems, and it is religion that will keep causing problems ... because humans are too "bloody" vain to admit that they had no right to depend on human-created words in books to use against other innocent humans.

Time to tell the truth about gays

Same-sex marriage can be as holy and covenantal as the heterosexual kind, argues Jeffrey John

Even after I pointed out again and again and again, the horror put upon homosexuals by devout Christians, Ink (the ever-faithful Christian) doesn't say "There must be something wrong with the scriptures, or at least how I am interpreting them." Instead Ink comes back with the attitude "If it offends God, they best not be homosexuals."

The defense of the bible being the truth from a god has cost human lives over and over, and still the idiocy remains in plain view, and followers such as Ink, are still faithful fools to the same old folly!

That lame and useless promise of salvation lured many weak-minded humans to fall for the line that if they just obeyed the master-leaders of their cults ... God would love them and take them home to be with "him."

What a shame that the blood-baths continue over defending useless and lie-filled myths!

As I stated before, even as a child, the preachers couldn't entice me to use the biblical scriptures against others, by claiming that a god wanted me (in essence) to be a bully for god.

It just didn't happen ... and for that, I am thankful.

I will ask you the question. Does the imaginary Jehovah love Christians?


So What does June believe in? The tooth fairy maybe?
