I have read over and over again, what some here say about having faith in a higher being, and have also asked recon, not to bring it into the discussion, yet CD makes it a point to be clear about his disdain for the very idea, and so has Sarkems...

I don't give a kitty kat what some of you think of me, yes I do make comments, and will continue to do so...each and everyone of you will speak your mind, whenever you wish...and I will continue to speak mine..if you don't like it either report me or just don't read what I post.

I stand by my comments, and will repeat, this is not the site for religious ideals and I'm quite sick and tired of the same old stuff being repeating over and over again.

If one would read back on these conversations its clear what each of you think, you've said it often.

Why must it continue to be said, especially when we all know clearly where we stand.

We all have the right to post here, make any comment we would like, but sometimes it gets to be a bit much.

As plain as I can say it..I don't give a damn what you, and the entire group of you think, be who you want to be, and I will surely be who I am.

If you want respect, also give it.

Fair enough, Mrs M. I'm up for not bringing it up again outside of the religious forum.

Line in the sand. Let's shake on that. As you say, we all know where we stand on that issue.

Now. Thongs or bloomers. Though I'm sure craig is wondering why we're talking about footwear in connection with underwear ...

Then Ingrid
you have not be reading my thoughts...No one can speak for Jehovah, the Bible does that, but if one does read it, their thoughts become as one with the Bible...

My opinions are based on scripture, and how I choose to see it, not mine alone...I have never said anyone here has to justify their core beliefs, but neither do I...You don't have to wear any garments, at all if that pleases you...you can go naked, if you wish...my comments refer to a constant criticism of a faith I believe in, and as long as they are made I will respond.

Sarkems just made the best comment of the day...and I most certainly agree with her...

Further you may need a translator, I surely do not..

For those among us who find humankind's treatment of animals as cruel, sadistic and vile feel every bit as strongly about our beliefs as Christians do about theirs. Respect has to go both ways. If you want respect then respect should be given in return. When people treat animals with such brutal inhumane cruelty, and then have the audacity to declare themselves as kind, caring people the clear hypocrisy feels like a punch in the gut.

In answer to Steve's original question when he started this thread, NO, Trump has not changed. He has lied about almost everything and never had a vision of how any of his campaign propaganda would actually work. Moreover he's heartless. Does anybody think it even remotely normal, let alone compassionate to criticize the Mayor of London right after a terrorist attack on his city by challenging him to an IQ test?

Here we go, yet again.

Let me make something perfectly clear to you CD, and also to Sarkems whatever your religious beliefs are or not, mean nothing to me, why? because you have that right, you can do just as you please and that's been said over and over again, from me...right here on this site...and yet you both feel the need to continually to show disdain for those that hold their faith dear.

Yes, Mrs Major, you've made your point - again, and again, and again, and again...

Perhaps the thing that causes disdain is not the fact that you hold religious beliefs, but that you don't ever shut up about them.

Let's get something clear (to borrow a phrase). This was a discussion about the abuse of animals, and in particular, one family of neanderthals (with apologies to yet one more species humans have managed to wipe out), who seem to think butchering unsuspecting wildlife is a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

That was the topic of discussion introduced by Steve, and continued by myself, Gloria and others. That is, until Michael, for some inexplicable reason, felt the need to introduce Big Daddy and The Kid into the discussion. Following this what had been an on-topic chat turned into a farcical pissing contest between yourself and Michael to see who was the really and truly genwhine messenger of the Almighty.

And yet, when I toss my two bits worth in, suddenly I'm out of line for expressing an opinion. As usual, it wasn't me who couldn't keep religion out of a discussion where it had no business being.

Tell me, Mrs M, has your intense study of the utterances of the Almighty led you to Matthew 7:5?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, presumably until you no longer feel the need to toss out this particular red herring:

Just as you couldn't give two hoots about my opinions, I couldn't give a rat's arse about yours. I've seen where they've gotten humanity over millennia. And yes, that's exactly what they are - opinions. Not the Wisdom of the Ages delivered to you from On High. However - I've never denied you the right to express them. I sat here and silently listened to the two born-again believers bickering about who is really doing the will of the almighty until out of sheer boredom I made a comment. And then you get your knickers in a bunch because I have the temerity to speak.

As I said before, I've no issue what anyone chooses to believe. I find it boring in the extreme when they feel the need to bring it up when it's got nothing to do with the discussion at hand - but even still, I accept that is your right. It's a shame you feel the need to follow the path of your spiritual ancestors, and shut down any opinion contrary to your own.

Finally, onto the subject of fashion. You may indeed imagine yourself sitting there adorned in the finest raiments of hand-spun silk adorned with golden thread and jewels, but from where I sit, you most certainly are as naked as the day you were born.

Now back to the (literal) elephant in the room. I have a suggestion. Let's lift all bans on trophy hunting. We'll declare open season on buffalos, rhinos, giraffes, lions, tigers, and of course, elephants - with one proviso... no guns allowed. Participants in the hunt may be armed with no more than a set of knuckle-dusters. We'll soon see what big kahunas these great Wall Street warriors have got. May the best animal win.

quit lying Craig...it "still" wont persuade the mission from the field. the only "pissing" contest here, as you've so eloquently left all over the toilet seat, is your "constant" belittlement of our God and His following faithful. again...as it is verifiable to all who can read. my "reminder" was not delivered addressed and non-confrontational. in Truth...whether "adopted" or torn from womb that the "child" is God's is "most" important. again ten to thirty per center ...quit promoting me. I am "always" Michael

Its funny, CD, that you would even mention a verse from the bible, a bible that you don't even believe in, if you did, you wouldn't speak of the Almighty in the way that you do.

Yes indeed for every one of your critical words I will match..and I'll do it again, and again, and again.. let me repeat myself!!!, I don't like you, not even a little bit, and I know you feel the same about me...we've made that clear...but your sarcasm will not shut me up...go right ahead, and when you say something I find offense I will respond...

You obviously enjoy the way you speak about a higher being...there's no need for it...it shows a lack of the slightest bit of concern for those that do have such a belief...there's just no need for it and as long as I see our words, I will respond.

I do not disrespect anyone that chooses to be an Atheist its there right..and its been made clear right here on this site...it seems its people like you that just can't stand a believer

Yes indeed, I will repeat myself, over and over again, and I don't give a damn whether you like it or not.

Believe it or not, You're here on this earth, by the grace of God...you didn't create yourself...

To Michael: Enough said, thanks for proving the point.

Mrs Major: I have perfectly cordial relationships with many "believers". They tend not to be the hypocritical ones, who think they're entitled to their own opinions, and have the right to voice them ad nauseam, whereas others may not.

You're right, I don't believe in your book of fairy tales. But even the ugliest of oysters contains the occasional pearl.

Do either of you have anything to say on the subject at hand, or are we going to continue The Hour of Power until other forum participants start slashing their wrists?
