I can honestly say I've never thought about that. I feel stupid because so many people have...
Actually, people hate on christianity all the time. I'm a christian and maybe I haven't gotten beat up in an alley but I've definitely been mocked for it. Especially on this website, all you see is criticism of christianity. Run-of-the-mill christians are pretty normal people who don't hate gay people, or whatever else people claim about them. It's the small group extremists that ruin the christian name.
I'd rather get money than anything else from other people. But I'd rather my boyfriend give me a five dollar teddy bear or something than a twenty dollar bill.
Nothing wrong with that at all.
I visited Amsterdam last summer, where prostitution is legal, and I went to the red light district. It was pretty uncomfortable to begin with because I was with my family. But it was actually unenjoyable because there were prostitutes in glass windows all over the place, but they all looked drugged, like they were about to die. I also got harassed by a bunch of drunk/high guys and the area was just seedy and gross. I feel like the legalization of prostitution would have a bad effect on the society.
Blacks are just as, and maybe even more, racist towards whites.
Smoking at 15 is normal?
haha how is it possible that you've never heard their song before? they're everywhere
Yeah, I finally got it after I saw it 2830958 times on facebook. Thanks though!
I mean, I don't think watchful_questioneer is the first person to ever say this...
You said "to make sure prisoners know why such a crime is wrong..."
Do you think people that commit crimes don't know they're wrong and why?
I'd think that they know what they're doing is wrong but they do it anyway.
Soccer is the greatest.
"Condemn the sin, not the sinner." God doesn't condemn anyone or cast a person away as soon as he falls into sin. God doesn't hate. He only loves, in the most perfect way. It's true that abortions and homosexuality are morally wrong according to God, but he doesn't "hate gays." He condemns actions, not people. And, because God loves us so much, we are able to repent for our sins and be forgiven because God's all-forgiving. You don't HAVE to do anything you don't want to though. If you want to be closer to God, it is a good idea to go to confession. Also, there are no pitchforks, etc. I don't even know who came up with that stuff. Hell is for people who choose not to be with God or not to love God.
When did I say I had a hardship? I don't give a fuck who insults me. I didn't claim that my life is miserable because I'm a christian. I just said that people insult Christians for no reason. If you knew anything about Christianity you'd know that the main teaching is to love your neighbor as you love yourself. Therefore, anyone who hates gay people or hates people of different color or anything else like that is not a christian. That's my point. There isn't a problem with christianity, there's a problem with some people who call themselves christians.
