Hi, I put this in the rant forum, because for quite some time now, I have been dumbfounded and increasingly frustrated that there are actually people out there who believe that being gay is a choice, or even worse, an illness! First off I know there is probably a million threads already to discuss this. But I hope it's OK with you all for me to start a new one , as I wish to share (for the 1st time) some sensitive and important (well important to me) information about myself and experiences. I'll do my best to keep it as short as possible, and 'must stress' I don't want this to turn into a pi55ing contest. So it maybe a good idea that religious people, who oppose sexuality due...

Scum of the earth. I get that people hunt for food and I respect that but this guy Walter Palmer of Minnesota went out to bag him a Lion which happened to be called Cecil who lived in the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe was lured by the Dentists guides half a mile outside the reservation so he could kill it with a bow and arrow. Cecil didn't die until the next day when they found him and finished him off. Here is Cecil and Walter. He paid 54 grand to kill this lion. 54 grand could do a lot of good in the world and I don't give a crap shooting a lion and letting it suffer is not a good way to spend 54 grand. Oooo I'm mad.. http://www.thestar.com/news/world/2015/07/28/american-dentist-accused-of-killing-beloved-zimbabwe-lion-cecil.html...

I rarely post in rant, but this makes me mad. :mad: Ok the story of Cecil the Lion being shot led me to another story of a female big game hunter. The story was last year and I never saw it because I guess people felt it wasn't a big deal. Clearly from the reaction of Cecils death when a white rich American man does it, it...

Here on ATS, I'm sure that many of you know this malaise I speak of. You can't quite put your finger on it, but you know it's there, you can feel it. A brooding sense of unwell, uncertainty, and fear of what's to come. But you, my dear readers, are the lucky ones. Your still have enough...

Weeks ago the world was ablaze with talk about "gays" after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v.

The media became saturated with discussions about it and, let's...

A logical argument can be made that Christianity commands believers to follow Satan by combining Matthew 4 and Romans 13. In Matthew 4 verse 9 in my opinion it states clearly that Satan was in control of "all the kingdoms of the world." You have to use a little logic to deduce that. To me it's...
