[Re. the case of Perry v. Schwarzenegger which will determine whether or not Prop 8 violated the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.]

Millions of Californians weighed in on this issue. Many invested their own hard earned money and time to exercise their rights as citizens. The United States Supreme Court has already ruled that States can limit marriage to one man and one woman (albeit in a summary decision).

One homosexual maniac is going to overturn the will of the people via fiat, without any basis in the law.

One man with the sweep of his hand can tell 13,000,000 voters that what they say doesn't matter.

How is that Freedom? We are living in a dictatorship.

The Church has a proven history of using faith to triumph over science. When Christians switched to battling with the weapon of science, they began suffering one defeat after another. Evolutionists have good reason to crow about their victories in public schools and in institutes of higher learning. Over the years, they have mopped the floor up with creationists, having won virtually every major contest. With creation science having such a dismal record, I think it's time to look for a better strategy

Only problem is, doing away with all religion pretty much implies belief in evolution(ism), and that's been massively disproven over the last 100 years.

I view Christianity sort of the same way Churchill viewed democracy, i.e. as the worst religion there could possibly be except for all those other religions, INCLUDING evolutionism and "secular humanism".

We are losing the battle against the sodomite agenda because of our silence. Most of us would rather not even think about this nasty subject much less talk to a stranger about it. But we had better start! Most non-Christians feel sodomy is wrong, but lack courage to speak up. If we will lead out, they will join the revolt against this steamroller, and we can put sin “out of the camp.” We have to be the spark that starts the fire.

Lady Checkmate's headline: "Atheism: The fool has said in his heart there is no God"

Why do atheists ONLY have a problem with Christianity?

They hate truth, but accept lies.
There is power in the name of Jesus Christ and that is why they (under the influence of the enemy - who is using and manipulating them) have set themselves in opposition to Christ, because the name of Jesus changes lives and the anointing destroys yokes. The enemy doesn't want the lost to be found and set free from sin and death.

They also hate Christians because we share the gospel of Jesus Christ (as the Holy Bible instructs us to) with boldness and confidence. They do all they can to discredit men and women of God, but God's word stands true FOREVER. Let God be magnified and glorified in ALL that we do. Amen.

Quote# 130010

'How to Identify a Christian Cult.'

The following is a list of social-structural, social-psychological, and interpersonal behavioral patterns commonly found in cultic environments which may be helpful in assessing a particular group or relationship. Not all of these points apply to each person affected by a cult or a legalistic church but many of them will.

1 Church members think they are the only ones who understand Scripture, as interpreted by the pastor or group leader. They consider those who reject their version of the truth inept, unlearned and/or lost; flawed in their understanding of what they consider to be the “real” Bible.

2 Fellowship outside the church is discouraged.

3 A haughty spirit of superiority may exist toward those who reject the church’s teachings.

4 Reading Bible translations that the pastor (leader) does not approve of is discouraged or forbidden.

5 Church members are not allowed to question what is taught or the materials used. The leader’s belief system, ideology and practices are considered as the Truth, as law. Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged, even reprimanded.

6 Congregants become isolated from others and are watched over overtly or covertly.

7 Church members are discouraged or not allowed to read works written by those outside of the church’s belief system.

8 Church participants may become distant toward friends and family; church attendance and the pastor’s directives take first place.

9 Even when errors in Scripture are pointed out, church members will not reject the group leader’s flawed analysis. Spiritual blindness and spiritual stagnation take place.

10 The leader (pastor) is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).

11 The church leader acts as the sole authority of the group.

12 Church members become overly zealous in attending their church and adhering to its teachings and “rules.”

13 The guidance of the Holy Spirit is replaced with the guidance of the pastor/ministry claiming to be the voice of the Lord. Of course the church members are oblivious to this sleight of (spirit) and they mistakenly think they are being led by the Holy Spirit.

14 The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with family, friends and society as a whole.

I must say I have often wondered why these toilet bowl issues are so important to gay people in mainstream media. They are less than 2% of the population and yet these issues are always put on center stage.

It may just be that so many people in MSM, as with the theatre and acting profession are gay, and use their positions, not simply to do their reporting jobs, but also to drive their own agenda.

Just look at CNN. A great many of their male reporters are openly gay like Don Mellon, Richard Quest, Anderson Cooper Vanderbilt, etc and many others are not open about it but who seem to be that way including Farid Zakarious, John Vaux and a South African guy they field as a reporter.

It looks like at least 50% of their male reporters are fudge stuffers. I don’t know about the women. Becky Anderson looks a bit butchy to me.

Media people are always wanting quotas for minorities to make things more representative such as having a proportional number of blacks on police forces relative to the overall black population.

Maybe if the hook-nosed media masters applied that quota idea to gay reporters, and kept their numbers at under 2%, we would once again begin to get some real news instead of all this toilet bowl coverage.

Al Cruise: I think we are going on the wrong trail here. What my original question was , what would happen if conservative Christianity had total control over the state in all areas of civil life. This is the parallel that the author is talking about. The Nazis took control of every aspect of life in Germany and we saw what happened. What would happen if conservative Christianity had the identical same control and power in the USA?

Skeptical Realist: It is impossible to separate people from the equation, and people are evil. But is actual disciples of Christ ran all things, it would be wondrous. Love God, and Love People. Prayer of the generic type would be allowed back into school. Abortion would be much more restricted if not illegal. Gender dysphoria would remain classified as a mental/psychological disorder. The traditional definition of marriage would be restored. Civil unions would be available to same sex partners. Freedom of sincere religious conscience would be restored. Totalitarian Islamism would be declared an enemy of the state and subversive towards the Republic. The federal govt would be removed from the role of nanny and caregiver, and return that to the people and the states.

In the Torah the Jews made a holocaust out of the People of Caan and even the live stock were slaughtered and burnt in bloody heaps to Yahweh as the Holocaust of burnt offering. However in Hebrew this word Holocaust is Olah....

In the Jewish Mishnah, the Rabbi's call the process of creating the Jewish Messianic Global Kingdom Tikkun Olam. That A is also the vowel Ah. Its Tiklum Olahm. Meaning one thing. Offering up the entire Gentile Peoples of the world as sacrifice to Yahweh as a holocaust. The Torah states their is five types of animals to be blood sacrifices to Yahweh, Cattle or Goyim in Hebrew is one of them. The Jews call us the non-Jews, Goyim.

It goes from Olah to Olam.... Because M is the letter of Messiah in Kabala. This is what Messiah must accomplish for the Jews.

I have already pointed out that intelligent design does exist as demonstrated by numerous man made designs. As the Christian bible says we are made in God's image, so it is feasible that we inherited this attribute of intelligent design from God.

And does it matter what method God used to produce a DNA molecule containing all the data and mechanisms needed to create and maintain a complete human being? The specific complexity of the end result far exceeds the Goo which would be produced by two billion years of totally random events acting on life's basic ingredients.

I could give countless different aspects of the possible problems with the new roles for women.

Look at relationships; empowered women go for the bad boys and treat the nice guy like crap. By the time they tire of the bad boys and want to settle down with a nice guy, those nice guys have gone for women that aren’t so empowered.

Look at children; ever since the change of roles, starting with the ‘70’s there have been more and more discipline issues with children, more violence, less of the traditional parenting and more sensitivity. And that sensitive parenting isn’t working. The increase in children isn’t proportional to the increase in disciplinary problems.

Look at women themselves; some women still enjoy dressing sexy and getting by on their looks. All women aren’t on the same page and the sexy women showing their bodies are a detriment to the cause of equal treatment of all women. Those women let themselves be perceived as objects and it’s not always a good thing.

Sources were too numerous to list, but are available if required.

Is society better off with the roles of women so drastically varied and conflicted?

Scientists should include God in their experiments by trusting His Word first - because God knows more than we do. If they get results that seem to contradict the revealed truth of God, they should take advantage of the information that God has given us as evidence that something was wrong with their experiment or their interpretation of the results.

This topic isn't going to be as noobish as you perhaps thought.
Now, gays.
I will admit that I am somewhat of a homophobe.
The Lord says that it's wrong, I shall believe.
But this is a different argument, because not all people believe in the Good Lord, and will be punished in the end.

It's just not darn natural.
Plop, out comes the baby.
That's how it was made to be.
There is a reson women don't have penises, and men don't have vaginas.
They were not meant to have sex.
Sex naturally goes along with love.
Sodomy is a sin, and "Cockfighting" has no point.
And what the heck do women do?
Rub up on each other?
Wow, how romantic.

It's just that simple: gays were not meant to be.
I don't know why they don't concider it a mental disease anymore.
It is.
If you like the same sex, there is something wrong with you in your brain.
They're like retarded people.
Next thing you know, people will be accepting incest and beastiality.
But even incest is better than homosexuality.
Because then, they can still procreate.
That's the way it was meant to be.

The imagination of Evolutionist's have thus far failed to give them much of a story on the origin of life. So, they prefer to beg out of answering, even though they believe in abiogenesis.

As far as I know, all animals have a brain, heart, and lungs. Where did the heart and lungs come from? Evolutionists usually avoid trying to answer such questions. They prefer to stick to things like "Monkeys sure do look like us?"

Voters in the Republican primary will have two very different candidates to choose from in the 9th Congressional District, as David Earl Williams III and Susanne Atanus vie for the right to face Rep. Jan Schakowsky in the fall.


"I am a conservative Republican and I believe in God first," Atanus said. She said she believes God controls the weather and has put tornadoes and diseases such as autism and dementia on earth as in response to gay rights and legalized abortions.

"God is angry. We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions," she said. "Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it's in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God."

" The people on TV said it was terrible because it wasn’t “soaring.” Something tells me they never worked in a factory and probably don’t know anyone who does."

It’s the first inaugural address I’ve ever heard that has ever touched me in any way, and it touched me deeply. I honestly never before felt like politicians gave a damn about working American families, and it sounded to me very much like he did. I also didn’t anticipate that having someone in power who will look out for people like me and mine would actually make me feel any different, but it does. It’s a potent mixture of gratitude and hope.

He set a very high bar for himself.

Default Re: Are furries so bad?
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, it must be a . . .

I live in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh hosts the annual "Anthrocon". I can tell you first hand, it is disgusting and it IS all about the sex. This from an "entertainment worker":

"My city Pittsburgh has hosted the Anthrocon conventions for the past nine years due to the big profits for the city itself, and this year the furry fan-dom group has donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Pittsburgh Aviary.

Wonderful, BUT I ask myself...is Pittsburgh being duped into believing this group is something other than what it is?

Having worked in the adult industry for decades, and having owned adult websites back in the mid-nineties, I'm fairly well-versed on adult fetish categories.

I'm not going to bore you with descriptions or lengthy explanations, you can Google it and find all the information on the subject matter yourself, but I will get straight to the point with this:

Gross link removedAn adult X-rated video of a plush furry fetish sexual deviant in action. (Warning! Obscenity. This is a simulation of bestiality.)

My professional opinion is that Anthrocon is a CON, and this is not just simply a group of thousands of grown adults who love furry animals----think about that for a minute!

My concern is for the children, and that's why I am writing this piece. I stumbled on a chat forum where a parent was inquiring whether it was safe for their 14-year-old son to participate in the furry culture.

When you read some of the answers that are given, it will send chills down your spine----most notably the answer about how only a very SMALL percentage of them are into bestiality.

Even more disturbing to me as a parent is that our local news media personalities have not taken the time to investigate this for what it really is, and thus, when the Anthrocon convention rolls into Pittsburgh, they giggle and promote it as a children's fantasy.

"There is no city that welcomes us in the way Pittsburgh does," said Samuel "Uncle Kage" Conway, chairman and CEO of Anthrocon told the local newspaper. "People here have embraced walking foxes as part of the scene."

This sense of acceptance is important for attendees, who come to Anthrocon to join a community of like-minded anthropomorphics devotees hailing from 25 countries and every state except North Dakota, Mr. Conway said. More than 1,100 attendees dressed in full-body fursuits will walk in a parade Saturday afternoon inside the convention center.

Take my word for it; it is not in any way, shape or form a child's play fantasy game.

It is an x-rated adult fetish group with a fur fetish, similar to diaper, rubber, and other strange materials and objects used as sexual stimulation fetish tools."
Link not give due to improper links within article. Go ahead and google it if you care.

Those who "believe" (probably sincerely) that this is a only a small part of the culture are naïve.

Well, Eivind, I congratulate you on your final victory. Predictably, all those idiots who chastised you when you were arrested and celebrated when your detention period was initially extended in July 2012 are now completely silent.

But what can you expect from such vermin? The amount of lies and hysteria they can produce is truly astounding, kinda like this nutjob in the comments who claimed you were under suspicion for murder in 1999 Norway when you didn't even live there at the time. But this is probably some of the less crazy shit they said. I remember liberals saying you were the author of Emma's posts, then that got your girlfriend because you bought her since she's a destitute Russian or entire campaigns to get you off University because your beliefs about rape somehow meant you are a rapist. These people have no knowledge of the material world. Their fantasies and incorrect nonsense is all that exists for them. They are dangerous, they are maniacs and they hate you because you're white, straight and male. They don't give a fuck about any rape or age of consent or whatever.

The groups they find immune to criticism could rape their mothers, sisters or daughters and they'd be ok with it. The groups they find immune to criticism can rape newborns, it's all ok to liberals since these groups can't be criticized since they lack privilege. You have to understand that to a liberal actual definition of rape is any rape a straight white male has at any time. They are self-hating freaks and monsters and they will get what's coming to them very soon. They have already basically stopped reproducing and turned women over to groups like Muslims and they have no biological or ideological future. Nobody wants a pathetic mangina who asks for consent over and over again every millimeter. Women want men who do what they wish with them, it is in their nature. Consent is a very useful concept within an environment of patriarchal civilization. Today it's a gone concept. You cannot have consent as something that is demanded of just one group of people and liberals actually believe that just one group of people has to think about "consent". And even when they do get consent they still hate this group !

Liberals have no chance with any of these women and they have only decreased their chances by making the women in their countries basically a monopoly of the Muslims. And in the end these same Muslims will destroy the liberals who cherish them so much and that is a good thing. Western world has forfeited its future. It is gone. It can no longer be saved.

The author is beginning to experience an awakening, but will not see the light until he sees that the problem is not so called pedophiles but those who fear them. The greatest constituency for pedophilia is children who love adults at the same rate that other adults love adults. Denying children their sexual rights is the real child abuse.

A truly civilized society should know how to fulfill the needs of all its citizens. But the adults who now unfortunately run the store so fear children that they must perform a curious pirouette and blame that adults.

Those adults who commit genuine acts of rape do so because in the absence of sane peaceful structures mechanisms, feel that rape is the only way to express their need. Change the laws and these horrible crimes will dwindle to the extent possible for our dysfunctional species.
