    I think you understood what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard was not what I meant.

    Not a scholar of scripture ... or anything else for that matter but a lot of folks is going to be disappointed in regards to this anticipated "mercy".

    This mercy, as it's presented, as well as a number of other Biblical tidbits that many of us embrace to give ourselves some peace of mind ... and excuses, are concoctions of them who would subjugate many of the rest of us and it works.

    KingsX appears to be a bit of a strange bird but I believe this is because "wee" ain't accustomed to such strangeness. Wee be accustomed to all the feel good, sugar coated notations of our shortcomings and the simple manner presented by our shepherds as to how to circumvent the consequences.

    On many levels that is very true, Oscar. I don't like feel good, sugar coated, that's why I started this thread in the first place. But killing gays today is not what I had in mind.

    I'm reminded of Shinmen Takezo but IIRC he was not Bible centered

    I understand Laura and in the grand scheme the homosexualists aren't the issue.

    In this regard THIS issue is a part of OUR test, how we react / address it. Father of course KNEW there would be such.

    Man wrote of this to remove the scrutiny from themselves ... this conduct which has become apparent through the decades.

    Publicly condemned by those who have been and are now actively exploiting our children ... were my child discovered to be a victim?

    Following a very brief consult with Father ... actually, begging His Forgiveness, well ....


    But to your OP I believe Sam addressed it but I don't think it was directed to you. I believe he was speaking to whom was making the request.

    See, folks think in terms of that with which they are familiar or have a preconceived ... understanding.

    As an example "we were made in His Image." In our present state, Father Does not Look as we do and we do not resemble Him.

    Father Has Provided us messengers in the past, you've read of them, we all have and they weren't very well recieved
