It's wrong for me and from where I sit.
Don’t worry Randy, I’m pretty sure the OP didn’t authorize the thread in the hopes that of all ATS’ membership, thst you would appear in the
thread so that they could attempt to seduce you.
If you can go thru life believing in nothing, diecarding
morallity with biological tunnel vision. Easily
convinced by a ridiculous atheist view.
And right here is where the wheels fell off of the cart. Morality isn’t the sole domain of some Christians. It’s not even the sole domain of all
who claim Christianity as their faith. Implying that anyone who doesn’t share your particular faith is devoid of morals is more fraught with tunnel
vision than anything questioned by the OP.
For a quick recap... faith/religion is not the source of morality. People can be kind, loving and compassionate in ways that would make Jesus give
them a high five for actually reading the words attributed to him and skipping past the petty, misogynistic and mostly UnChristlike letters and
writing by Paul.
Unconcerned with procreation.
You are aware that reproduction and the physical acts associated with it are not mutually exclusive right? There are plenty of people on all points on
the Kinsey Scale who manage
To successfully procreate. Some of them are even straight.
Spouting crap about existence as if you have any idea,
when everyone knows you don't including your
I must say, I’m a little disappointed to see you resort to such a petty ad hominem and personal attack on the OP. Whatever happened to keeping eyes
on the ball and not focusing on the person carrying it? Wouldn’t it have been easier to ground an argument in facts (even opinions have a place in
this discussion) instead of resorting to such petty tactics?
Never knowing the sacred things in life.
That which is considered sacred has far more to do with circumstances, cultural background, geography etc... and not particularly grounded in ones
faith. Though in a fit if irony, the faith one has is also a byproduct of ones circumstances, culture and geography. Personally, the things I hold
sacred are drastically different from what I found to be sacred to me prior to having kids which in turn is vastly different than what I found sacred
when I was in the Army which again is vastly different from what I found sacred as a full fledged Catholic who was an altar boy for years, could say
the entire mass from memory and nesrky made my Irish Catholic grandmother the happiest woman ever when I was preparing for Seminary because I was
really close to throwing my life away and becoming a priest. The readers digest version of the above statements is... what you find sacred isnt
necessarily the same thing that someone else will find sacred.
This surpasses all boundaries and people who grew up in the same home with the same values imparted onto them will grow up to have different values
and consequently, find different things, thoughts concepts etc... sacred to them. It’s ego and arrogance that lead many of us to point our fingers
at others as if we have all of the answers andcerytging
IS FIGURed out so do as Isay, not as I do
All so you you can have fuzzy feelings
about being attracted to the same sex you are?
If that’s what you took away from the OP, perhaps a chat with your pastor or a mental health practitioner if you’re this caught up in the private
moments consenting adults share with one another, the Vatican may just have a job you’re perfectly suited for!
There's something wrong with someone
who has to ask if its wrong.
It’s those who are afraid of asking or being asked difficult questions that have something wrong with them. Not the person who wants to better
understand the world around them and how culture shapes ones world view. Context is everything. I think eating dogs, kittens and horses is wrong. It
doesn’t stop East Asians from eating our favorite little furry pals or the French from turning horsemeat into some choice, primecuts of meat. I
personally find the practice of some cultures who marry off prepubescent daughters for a small dowry yet it is perfectly normal for many of them. Many
so called self proclaimed christians are totally fine with the death penalty while calling proponents in favor of access to abortions by woman baby
murderers. Or the American Christians who stick up for the atrocious crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Israeli IDF because hey! ... it’s
the friggen Holy Land so even if they are just a bunch of Jews, they might just wake up and smell the bacon when good ole Hey Zeuss comes back for
With all of that said, I hope you know me well enough by now to know that I’m not just trying to take the piss out of you and I hope that you, your
family and loved ones, all enjoy a lovely celebration of the reawakening of our zombie overlord, bastard son of Yahweh and illegitimate first child of
a barely old enough for a learners permit Holy Mary. Now I’m goi got get a head start on this big ole ham I’m whipping up later this afternoon.
Humor aside, I genuinely hope you have a lovely Easter snd get to enjoy it in the company of those you love.
