    Thanks Jailminister for that link.

    For those of you that signed the other link, we will keep you in our prayers.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodmoites, 10. nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the kingdom of God.

    Great response. Pass the site on to your churches. We need to be heard.

    I signed it, but I'm glad I live in a country where people can sign the other one as well.

    Can someone enlighten me about the following?

    1. People who decry homosexuals as "promiscuous", yet object to homosexuals making a monogamous commitment?

    2. People who complain about teenage pregnancy & STD rates, yet insist on not telling kids about condoms. (Sure abstinence education is fine, but not all kids will abstain, even Christian kids)

    3. People who complain about abortion, yet would not go out of their way to take an unwanted child into their own home or family.

    4. People who would never walk into a record store and steal a CD, yet trade illegal MP3s of Christian music on Kazaa & other services.

    # 1 is condemned in the Bible, OT and NT, irregardless of committedness.

    # 2 - I'm not informed enough about what is and isn't taught along with abstinence by counselors.

    # 3 - So poor people are disqualified from having an opinion / taking a stand against abortion?

    # 4 - Both are forms of stealing and are equally wrong in the eyes of The Holy!

    Oh, and I signed the first one! :D

    I will be happy to! [​IMG]

    God condemned sodomy...period! He did not add that it was OK if the relationship was monogamous.

    Kids WILL abstain from having sex if parents raise them in a Christian home, spend time with them, have jobs for them to do, and know where they are at all times. It's hard to have sex when you're never alone with the opposite sex.

    I don't know why you are lumping everyone together like this. I would be ecstatic to take an unwanted child into my home, adopt him, and raise him as my own. So would just about everyone else in my church.

    They are both stealing, and as such, I don't do either one.

    Anything else you'd like to know? :D

    Since all of our kids have four legs(and they are all neutered or spayed [​IMG] ), a couple of questions to enlighten me please.

    1) How would a parent pull this kind of Spartan strategy off? Are saying that kids can never date during high school?

    2) At what age would you say one can date and be alone with the opposite sex?

    Sue said it clearly. Homosexuality is an abomination and condemned by God.
    Our daughter has gotten pregnant 3 times while condoms were being used.

    We HAVE adopted an unwanted child. He's now 8 1/2.

    I have NEVER downloaded any offline music that was not on a Christian site that gave permission for that 'music' to be downloaded for web pages and email. I also don't copy tapes or CD's but if I want more than one, I buy another one. I don't know what Kazaa is.

    Those are the same remarks we hear over and over. Can't the liberals come up with some new excuse to allow sin!

    I pulled it off by caring about my children, loving them, having them in church, and being diligent and very watchful. And, yes, that's what I'm saying. My children did not date ALONE during high school. There is no reason for it.

    I don't think that is ever necessary. I know people in their 40s that should not be alone with the opposite sex!

    What better wedding present to give to your bride or groom than them knowing that you had never been kissed by anyone else?

    I've seen it work!

    I would be happy to.

    Are you saying people who only rob ONE bank are OK. Monogamy isn't the issue. Homosexuality IS. Once or a thousand, it is wrong. 1000 is just being wrong 1000 times.

    Since kids are going to sin anyway, let's just teach them how to sin better. Since sex education has been around for quite a few years now, let me ask you. How that going? Are there less STD's and pregnancy, and fewer abortions now than there was 100 years ago?. Is sex before marriage no longer a big issue? Has it almost died out thanks to your "enlightened" views?

    Are people who complain about an unwanted child and yet won't offer them for adoption but instead kill them are OK by you?

    The specifics of what is legal and what is illegal on downloading have not yet been resolved.

    Your attempts to make imperfect people feel so guilty about their imperfections that they will NOT take a stand on issues is pathetic. You, being an equally imperfect person, feel no guilt about taking a stand on issues, so, why should I.

    So does this mean that you still should not teach about them? Would she have contracted a disease or been pregnant 10 times without them? They are effective...no not 100%, but better than nothing. I am sure you taught your daughter absintence, yet she did not abstain. In that case, would you rather her not at least have some degree of protection?

    Good! I do recall though, that he is your natural grandchild (if I am not right about that, please feel free to correct me). Have you gone to an abortion counseling center and volunteered to take someone else's child to prevent it from being aborted? How many anti-abortion people have done so? Not many of the protesters have done this, I would venture to guess.

    You personally have not...but I know many people who do just this very thing and think it is not stealing.

    I don't know? Why don't you as a "liberal"? :D
