...or quite simply, make a mistake. Every other month, something previously touted as wonder food, a wonder drug, etc, is no longer considered a fountain of youth, but rather, a deadly carcinogen, or something else that does bodily/mental harm, etc.
For the record, I don't feel I'm discriminating a bit when I speak out against allowing homosexual blood to flow through the veins of others. The fact of the matter, and my simple position is that I don't trust science or scientists who may promote faulty evidence because they have a liberal agenda, or are themselves sodomites.

And whose doing the distorting, Will? The creme of the intelligence crop. The brightest of the bright, the intellectuals. You would think they, of all people, would get it when comparing all the evidence. I think the bible has something to say about this...
Hi James, no matter what forum one may hang out in, no matter what focus or Bible group, etc, a person might take part in, there will always be differing opinions. I scrolled throught the thread and noticed Jim saying he might be in Hell, but other than that, I read more observations and facts than anything else. For me, I know the type of charlaitains he has had on in the past which surprises me now that I know much more about them, but other than that, I know nothing of the man. I'm sure he's done a lot of good and TBN consisted of other good content aside from some of his guests. For all I know, he had some of those people on once and then said never again. As for his spiritual status...far be it from me to ever judge and condemn anyone...
The way I see it is that their blood has been in the supply line already for a very long time. Whether it's a result of a person's sexuality never being checked before, people lying if it was, heterosexual men who have been with men, and vice versa, women who have been with homosexual or bi men, and so on. I think the angry homosexuals will give blood anyway, out of spite, lying on the questionaires if anything were ever written into law. Afterall, it would work on the honor system anyway, wouldn't it?
Unfortunately, you're probably right, SF.¬† I hope this information along with having to view ultrasounds abroad will save at least a few. I have never been able to get used to the fact that abortion, along with its methods and reasoning are even legal.
John, I'm all for having goals, but are you being realistic with all of your plans at your age? Maybe go step by step in the here and now and see where it takes you. After you get a data entry job, maybe then plan and save for the next move then see where that takes you...

No, not a nut, I just hide it pretty well for the most part. Anyway, I hadn't even thought of the example of Jonah. Thanks for the comments, Anne.
I don't believe homosexuals are possessed, but I do believe that many have been abused as children. When it comes to the current generation, they are being taught that gay is ok, even glamorous and cool. They are being taught that it's not a choice but rather, God made them that way; He has changed and loves them as they are. Others believe it's a free for all because there is no God, we are empty, our lives have no meaning, we evolved from apes, and at death, it's just lights out. The attraction of male to male and female to female is beyond my understanding.
Michael Hranek from Endicott, New York writes: Just a brief thought that has hit me. One I have a lot of learning and growing to do.
I like to hear this thought coming from a seasoned, mature, born again Christian. What I hear in that is that you have an open mind and are willing to hear and consider the thoughts, opinions, theories, etc of others. What I hear in that is that is that you are open to discussion and thoughtful consideration of other views, even when they may collide with what you have been taught and your own preconceptions. I think an open mind is a great thing to have when so many have become hard as nails in the grayer areas, etc that can be argued. I think the "I'm right, you're wrong, and that's that" attitudes can lead people down wrong paths and even stagnate their spiritual growth.
Thanks again, Michael. Listened to them last night...didn't know they were songs. My favorite? The 1st one: Dear refuge of my weary soul. I could listen to it over and over Thanks again...much appreciated.
Will do, Shane, and don't ever feel like anyone here considers the horrors of life, posting those details to vent, or asking prayer for anything to be some sort of a request for pity. People are people and will think what they want, but most on this board are filled with compassion and empathy.
