Did you read where the Catholic nuns were admonished by the Pope - - - for not making abortion and homosexuality their #1 focus. Shocking isn't it -
- - they thought helping the poor was more important.
Yeah kind of outrageous considering how many young boys are homosexually assaulted by the clergy

There are plenty of PC gay activists.
Do all of them really need to be? And really - why should they be - - considering how they are treated - - and the horrible things anti-gay
Christians say without restraint.
Well they do have every right to be angry over what has been dione to them, but.. it's a bit of a catching more flies with suger. I believe that our
court justices need to examine the writings and letters of the founders of this country. There were limits I don't have my files on this computer
but Jefferson made it clear that the only restraint from freedom of religious expression is when it crossed over and took rights away from others. In
addiution it was stated that claiming freedom of religion was not a defesne when used as an excuse for criminal activity. I have spent more time
learniing about history and religion as an adult than I spent learning anything up through High School
Something that I have found quite disturbing is regarding the "day of silence" I have even attended 2 hgih schools during this day, so I can verify
there is no "agenda" as many claim to turn their kids gay. The only agenda that the Day of Silence involves is the silence for a day of gays and
their friens who also get bullies for being friends with them, is to dray attention to how they are silenced, they are beat up on and bullied and
people even school officials turn a blind eye to it because of the gay thing. So in effect the Day of Silence is a silent plea that they be treated
with normal human respect, that they not have to worry about beign beat up in the locker-room and having the school admins ignore it when they try to
go to them for help because of the gay thing.
It's not too much for any human to ask, to be able to live without that type of pain.
Okay now the disturbing part. In at least 3 cases that I have heard of a judge determined that to forbid a classmate from wearing a shirt with
sayings like "be straight not gay" on the Day of Silence would be violating her right to religious freedom.
So we have a group of students participating in the Day of Silence in effect begging the world to let them just be unaccosted, to feel safe going to
school for the education all US Citizens have a right to
And on the other hand on that very same day you have a supposedly "Christian" student supporting the continued harm to these kids.
Am I the only one who has a problem with people using religion to encourage hate ??
For the Christians it should be a huge concern too. Jesus wanted those Christians to lead all of his children to him through kindness and love, he
wanted them to accept him willingly. But frankly the only potential outcome of their actions .....if they have their way....is to force people who
have not accepted his message, to act on the outside as if they do under penalty of pain...against their will. Effectively instead of folliwing
Jesus's instructions for his followers, they are denying him by turning to the old testi,emt to draw their punishment since it wasn't what Jesus
wanted them to do......and in doing so they are pushing people farther and farthers away instead of leading them to him....
The biggest issue I think is that many "christians" go to church on sundays, are told by a supposed expert what they are to believe, and are read to
a couple of passages from the bible and are dependant on the teacher to understand it all.
But Christ warned his followers to beware of false prophets that many would come claiming to be him or speak for him.....Now what is the best way to
safeguard yourself.....read...it's not as confusing and hard to understand as many make it out to be...
BTW did you read the link to an earlier post that I put in my first here today? IF niot....just scan to the "wait for it " part
I am very aware of false prophets
