Please specify which watered down re-transliteration of the Bible you are quoting from.
Because obviously the reason your passage sounds so modern is because it was not a literal translation but a translation adapted to modern society.


I quoted from the NIV.

Sure isn't made for the hand.


You sure about that?


Question: Masturbation Statistics -- Who Masturbates?
Answer: The consensus of those doing a statistical analysis of who masturbates is that around 90% of the total male population and 65% of the total female population masturbate from time to time.

Sue Johanson, sex educator and counselor, 2000: "99 percent of men of all ages masturbate regularly and the other one percent are liars."

I'm getting a :bnghd: feeling here. I have shown that the penis is meant for more than just a vagina. AND it's natural. The life support system for this penis is grateful for these facts.

The penis was made for the vagina and to discharge pee.

Does anyone want to address what is stated in the above post?

Either the religious side or any side whatsoever?

For those arguing the religious side, is it not the truth that you are to love the sinner and hate the sin?

For those on the other sides, do you really believe that STATE sanctioned marriage should have ANYTHING to do with two private individuals swearing fealty to each other?

Oh, I forgot, the government insinuates their talons and tentacles into everything. Again, why do we allow the government to dictate our personal behaviors and lives?

Oh right, because you are all closet dictators that think that the government should control YOUR life and EVERYONE elses.

I say to the gay and lesbian community, if you want a libertarian social society, why do you NOT want a libertarian economic society? Is it because you are a CLOSET TYRANT!?

Trudeau said it best imo:


Trudeau famously defended the decriminalization of homosexual acts segment of the bill by telling reporters that "there's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation", adding that "what's done in private between adults doesn't concern the Criminal Code"

I have attempted to leave my spiritual discussions out of the arguments here. For to attempt to subjugate anyone to my morals is blasphemous to mine own eyes. I will meet my maker, I will be judged and weighed for to attempt to understand his light is to attempt to understand infinity. Hey, that was kind of cool.

Peace and God Bless. Judge not and ye shall not be judged.

Oh, using Trudeau was pretty........... I do not know.

Excellent quote to use. I would be hypocritical to judge would I not?

You mods have shown me that I should not get so emotional/judgemental/confrontational in my endeavors. Of course that is hard to learn while being the youngest of 5 brothers and 3 sisters. I have to remember the ol patriarchs favorite quotes. From Samuel Langhorne Clemens. This quote comes from several different sources, the original actually comes from the bible. Funny how that is.

It is better to be considered a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

I am no longer going to argue semantics or anything else with anyone. Life is too short and so is intelligence, too short to debate things that are common sense and only indoctrinated idiocy.

Choice. That is ALL we have. I give everyone the choice to do as they wish.

I just HOPE that sooner or later, the world catches up with me.

The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis.
The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In comparison, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an "exit-only" passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic.
The potential for injury is exacerbated by the fact that the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from highly vascular tissue, that is, blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids.


That's all well and good. But, have you ever wondered why God gave man a prostate gland? And why did God put it were it is stimulated by anal sex?

Or is it a work of the Devil? If so, how can the Devil supercede God in his creation?

Shut up can you idiots keep on TOPIC. and by that....discuss the law and the decision and if it will hold up in appeals. I dont wanna hear why you dont or do support homosexual marriage. I want to discuss the LAW.

Now.....from what i read he struck it down under the 10th ammendment and the equal protection clause.

So im confused. He struck it down under the 10th ammendment because "it got in the states way of defining marriage".

So he basically did it under the tenth ammendment. But also with striking it down is he not forcing states to recognize gay marriage who dont want to? Its like double speak.

At first i was happy for the decision because i thought it was reiterating that the states decide what marriage is and not the federal government.

But then i thought about it and i found that because of the seperate ruling he made under the equal protection clause it would essentially be forcing a state that bans recognition of homosexual marriage to recognize anothers states marriage.

Is it me or does this not just sound retarded? He ruled against DOMA on two things that mean the opposit of each other. Its like they are a antithesis!

He is basically saying that each individual state can decide WHAT they DEFINE marriage as and yet turning around and saying you must recognize another states Interpretation of what marriage is.

what the hell?


Was he high?

The whole ruling contradicts itself. Thats why i dont think it would hold up in appeals.

The prostate is not MEANT to be used in sex. It can be but is not MEANT. Dont get it twisted. the prostate carried seminal fluid. It is a important part in the reproductive process of males.

Getting high feels good too...im assuming. but is it 'natural' to get high?
