  1. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    What is it like to be christian? Is there a special feeling one has? Would you say that every priest has the same philosophies concerning the bible? Do all priests interpret the bible the same way or do they preach their opinion of what they believe the bible says? I'm wondering, do the priests who are sexually abusing children interpret from the bible that it's right? Do they believe homosexuality is wrong while they do what they do to young children? I know my last 2 questions do not have anything to do with what you said, and I'm not trying to be aguementitive with your thought so please understand these questions are what came to mind while reading your post. Thanks

    I never mentioned anything about George Bush eastablishing a national religion or favoring any one religion. My point was that G.B. is setting polocy based on his religious beliefs. He'd love to change the abortion law, in fact he'd like to abolish abortion, period, he's vetoed embryonic stem cell research, he's against same sex marriage. The list could go on. He's against anything that his faith believes is wrong.this crosses the separation of state and church. He believes what is good for him is good for all. it's wrong
  3. Andretti: The Verdict

    Hahahaha! Thanks for the laugh. If you believe Button is among the champions in F1 racing with what maybe less than a 150 points in 7 seasons. Forget it! Button is an overrated driver.He deserves a pay cut. I'm sure he won't place better than 6th in the standings this coming season. He can drive a car, but he's no champion!

    It's interesting how Canada can be looked at as a role model. It' multiculture lifestyle continues to thrive in the recognition of the differences we all hold, and have learned to understand and respect one another. Great eh!

    Beautiful country.Isn't it?
  6. Andretti: The Verdict

    No, what I said was with more time under his belt in an f1 car he could prove to be a better prospect than Button. In his last test, as a 19 year old, and just his second test in a f1 car he was only 1.4 seconds behind Button under the same driving conditions. In respect to DC, Heidfeld, Trulli(humm),and many more I think Button is over rated. Come on, 1 win in 7 seasons, 126 races! Does a single win determine talent in your eyes? I would think consistency would determine that. I believe you're the one who may have difficulty judging talent, and by the way, I never said he was a bad driver.I said he was an over rated driver.

    I guess it's what makes the world go round and round.

    Heeeal! I say heeal!

    What miracle have you seen? Have you handled snakes and drank poison and not been hurt? The miracle i'd like to see is no more scripture, just your very own opinion.
  10. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    Hahahaha! ok, how about the world would be a better place to live if we all agreed to disagree we agree. Now I'm using a rumsfeld euphemism.
  11. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    I also believe if there were more f1 fans in the world, it would be a better place to live
  12. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    I believe we have all reached a consensus. I believe if there were more people like us the world would be a better place to live regardless of our beliefs. I think it's called finding a common ground inwhich we can all live in peace.
  13. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    I would also like to add.Your sweeping generalization that the world would be a better place to live if there were more christians. I might say if there were more buddists in the world it might be a better place to live, or more muslims or more.....
  14. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    I would say that your comment about those who chase the next thrill would be considered bi-sexual because they choose, unlike homosexuality not being a choice.
  15. Andretti: The Verdict

    I believe you mean a 1 race winner and veteran of seven seasons don't you? I'm only being realistic. Button should take a pay cut until he proves he's worth his ride.
  16. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    I'd also like to add your very good arguement here. Religious people are largely poor and ill.These same people are the one's that finacially support the church as well. I thought preachers of god were to live as a paupor , but you see these people living lives in a materialist way, and certainly a better life than most people who support them. I believe religion manipulates the misguided for it's own purpose "money".
  17. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    As i have said before, i appreciate the fact you believe in something. In your case, god and the bible. My arguement has been that god and the bible should not and can not be allowed to set policy for all.If you wish to believe and live your life in this manner then I can accept that, but when it is said that all of society should accept and live life based on your beliefs I can not. I believe that homosexuality is as natual as heterosexuality, I believe women have the right to choose, i believe, as another example embryotic stem cell research is right, all of which your religion looks at as wrong. Governments should not be allowed to say same sex marriage is wrong, stem cell research is the taking of life, as is the abortion issue. These are just some of the important issues that society is now having to consider because today's society and beliefs have changed unlike your beliefs. I'm not saying your beliefs in the litteral sense I'm saying your religion.
  18. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    Interesting questions and in some cases science is starting to answer them, but i believe you misunderstood my request. I was asking for evidence (scientific or medical) that someone has been cured of homosexuality. By the way can your book answer those questions?
  19. I'm Not Perfect

    excuse me!!! What grounds support your statement that there's a problem with canadians. I'd say that american extremists are far worse than canadians.
  20. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    I'm wondering. Is the only input you are able to offer from your book? Do you have your own opinion? It seems that your only ability here is to include parts of your book that really do not apply to anything more than your religion. Are you so insecure in yourself not to offer an opinion of your own? Have you been manipulated so much that you can not think for yourself? The reason i ask these questions is because it seems it's all you have. I appreciate your belief in something that may or may not exist, but I do think you have nothing else to offer.
  21. Andretti: The Verdict

    I agree. Speed's too high on himself. Yes it would probably a great way to gain experience, but testing could do that as well under truer conditions.
  22. Andretti: The Verdict

    With more time and more laps under his belt, he could very well be faster than the over rated button who could only muster 1.4 seconds faster in the same conditions.Go Marco
  23. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    Some would argue that contraception goes against god's will, and some would argue that abortion goes against god's will. I would say that the use of abortion as contreception is wrong, but i would say that abortion is a matter of choice. It is the not the right of anyone who uses the book as a basis of what is good for one is good for all as a rule of law. In your second statement it is the leaders who manipulate the bible, the quaran to lead the misguided to pursue their agenda. Even the pope has used the book to set out his own agenda and goals no matter the cost for the continued role to control what all people should believe. The church should accept that it is free will and not to say a woman will be forever held in damnation for choosing to have an abortion, nor should a leader of a free society, based on their religous belief. They have the right to believe what they may, but they do not have the right to set policy on their belief.
  24. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    It is certainly man that has created the turmoil that has and does exist in this world, but it has in most cases been the man who uses the book to set his agenda on how the world should be through his convaluted concept of how and what people should believe is right or wrong. Case and point of one current leader who uses the book to set his agenda is G.W.Bush. Look at what his belief has ceated. If I were to believe, the greatest sin would be not to accept the differences of each and every person living on this planet, and to appreciate their difference as a part of life
  25. Sexuality; What Are Your Views?

    One who uses the bible as the written truth in any arguement is never going to win because it's only a book. As I said before you have to believe in yourself before anything else. If someone requires a book to believe in one's self, well all I can say is go nuts, fill your boots. Look at the turmoil in the world your bible has caused for centuries in the name of god. All because of the misconseptions that all that is written is true. Religion has for too long manipulated the system of life. I believe someone earlier called it a cult and that's all it is. A manipulative cult. I again appreciate your views and again it's your right, but please don't tell me that prejudice towards someone's sexuality or skin color or whatever is acceptable. Your book says to love thy neighbour. Will you love a muslim, a buddist, a homosexual? Let me also ask. Would you accept your brother or sister, son or daughter as a homosexual or would you send them to a church for reorientation of their sexuality because you can't accept it?
