    People are so in awe

    that the President sang at a Charleston shooting victim's funeral. I'm sure he has a great voice and all. But I feel like people do a ton of stuff to just avoid the real issue. Yes he sung Amazing Grace. But I'd also like it if he called a spade a spade and acknowledged the...

    As you sit here and read this,

    a gay couple is getting married and you weren't effected in any way. Not allowing gay marriage isn't going to stop people from being gay, with that being said, why not let people who are gay be happier in their lives?

    Some people can be so stubbornly near-sighted.

    Parents don't always know best. You can't ask a parent about the effects of spanking on their children. You have to talk to the children! And, actually, someone other than the child's parent needs to talk to the child, because the child won't tell the whole truth if they're...

    Homosexuality Being A Sin

    For all the people who quote the Bible, in the OT in Leviticus it was also a sin to eat pork an shellfish. It was a sin to have one's hair cut, have tats, piercings. It was a sin to wear clothes of different materials. It was a sin for women to wear pants. It was a sin to...

    I'm pro-choice, I never want children, I have tattoos and piercings, and dye my hair unnatural colors. I'm controversy personified. And what's better is that I know I'm not the only one.

    My fellow followers of God,

    the allowance of homosexual marriage is based in legality not morality or even spirituality. Th bible has its views, other people have their views, however while you have every right not to condone it, it is highly advised that you not vote against it (if you don't believe in...

    I think it's funny how everyone forces you to

    accept gay marriage by forcing it into our justice system, churches, organizations, politics, music, television shows, and schools. And they're excuse is "We're here, we're queer, get used to it." If someone says they support gay marriage, everyone respects and supports them...

    I am a right wing conservative Christian.

    I believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. I believe that we are living in the end times. I love all people as God does. If he is not Lord of your life you are rejecting him as Savior. This is your choice, freewill. God doesn't send anyone to hell, you make that decision...
