It's a bigoted statement to say "Muslims are homophobic", especially with no proof. You could, instead, use some definitive evidence to show how Islamic teachings preach against homosexual relationships. You could even use case studies or statistics to show hate crimes for Muslims against LGBT individuals. Basing your views off of a gut feeling isn't always the best idea.

I don't think the hatred against any one group of people is worse than the hatred against any other group.

So we have a law that says that conservatives cannot have an abortion and another law that says that liberals can have all the abortions they want.

Newsflash!! No one is forcing anyone to have an abortion! I know it's very difficult to believe, but it's true- if you don't want one because you're morally opposed to them, you don't have to have one!

Just because maximum security prisoners get to eat and take a dump doesn't mean they have any rights or live a comfortable life. They live a lot of their lives in solitude and the food they eat is miserably poor quality.

People who find themselves jobless and on the streets (they committed no petty crimes, let alone terrorism) can't afford most of those facilities.

Homelessness is a completely different debate. That being said, there are homeless shelters out there. I don't know the quality of them, but they exist. Not to mention the notion that some homeless people do commit petty crime (whether intention or not) and wind up getting the care they need in minimum security prisons.

"Raised in the Georgian Orthodox faith, Stalin became an atheist. His government promoted atheism through special atheistic education in schools, anti-religious propaganda, the anti-religious work of public institutions (Society of the Godless), discriminatory laws, and a terror campaign against religious believers. By the late 1930s, it had become dangerous to be publicly associated with religion.[99]

Stalin's role in the fortunes of the Russian Orthodox Church is complex. Continuous persecution in the 1930s resulted in its near-extinction as a public institution: by 1939, active parishes numbered in the low hundreds (down from 54,000 in 1917), many churches had been leveled, and tens of thousands of priests, monks and nuns were persecuted and killed. Over 100,000 were shot during the purges of 1937–1938.[100][101] During World War II, the Church was allowed a revival as a patriotic organization, and thousands of parishes were reactivated until a further round of suppression during Khrushchev's rule. The Russian Orthodox Church Synod's recognition of the Soviet government and of Stalin personally led to a schism with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia.

Just days before Stalin's death, certain religious sects were outlawed and persecuted. Many religions popular in ethnic regions of the Soviet Union, including the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Catholic Churches, Baptists, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism underwent ordeals similar to that which the Orthodox churches in other parts of the country suffered: thousands of monks were persecuted, and hundreds of churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, sacred monuments, monasteries and other religious buildings were razed. Stalin had a different policy outside the Soviet Union; he supported the Communist Uyghur Muslim separatists under Ehmetjan Qasim in the Ili Rebellion against the anti-Communist Republic of China regime. In addition to this, he supplied weapons to the Uyghur Ili army and Red Army support against Chinese forces, and helped them establish the Second East Turkestan Republic of which Islam was the official state religion."

My original point was moot anyway. I completely forgot about Stalin and Mao when I posted it and was proven wrong quickly and easily.

If you're against it, then how about we implant a fetus into you and you decide whether of not you want to carry that around for 9 months. And if you're a man and you're arguing on the other side, please just stop talking. You have no right to force someone with a uterus to carry a fetus if you don't even have one.

They're undocumented immigrants, not "illegal aliens"; they're still human beings and deserve a modicum of respect, especially since they're the ones who do all the jobs we're too good for, like housekeeping and landscaping. How about instead of rounding them up like animals, we make it easy for them to naturalize?

Okay and if I want to believe you, please provide me with numbers.

He asked how many prisoners escape from maximum security prisons. I found an old article from 2001; it states that "in 1993, 14,305 prisoners escaped out of a prison population of 780,357 (about 2%)," but "the vast majority of escapees are "walk-aways" from community corrections facilities that have minimal supervision." Furthermore, "the last year with more escapees than recaptured prisoners was 1994, when 14,307 prisoners escaped and 13,346 were returned." Source

So to wrap it up, you didn't even answer his question properly...

Does God sleep?

Psalm 121:3-4 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

Psalm 44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast [us] not off for ever.

Has any man ever ascended into Heaven?

John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son of man which is in heaven.

2 Kings 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, [there appeared] a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Actually this is kind of fun! (Although a terrible way to procrastinate my studying...)
