I'm not Christian but I receive a Christian education at a Catholic school. I've heard many different perceptions of Hell. Here are two of the most common:
One is the perception that Hell is physical punishment, as described in the Bible or the Book of Revelations. There is eternal suffering and lakes of fire, etc.
Another is the perception that Hell is just an absence of God, and that alone drives the souls crazy knowing that God is real but isn't with them.
I'm not sure which is true, if Hell is even real.
The war started in 2001, sixteen years ago. We still have not accomplished a thing. Sure, we hunted and killed Osama bin Laden but that took 9 years, and exactly what did that do? Al-Qaeda is still a thing, but a bigger threat is ISIS. It's faded over the wayside in the past few months but it is still active and has some strongholds in the Middle East. The war looks to be over, and for good reason. The decade has been spent wasting money in foreign countries when it could be used to improve infrastructure, education, or healthcare.
What about rape cases then? Did the girl want to get herself pregnant, or are you one of the rightists who think that it's the woman's fault for wearing revealing clothing and getting herself raped? Also, what if the baby is endangering the mother. Should she have to die just so a baby can be born (considering it is even alive)?
Why is this still a debate? The Declaration of Independence has a well known phrase: "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". Gay marriage is people living out their life. They have the liberty to be happy with whomever they love, be it of the same gender or of the opposite gender.
As usual, a deceptive Liberal that only uses free speech arguments when it suits you.
Well there are only certain cases that free speech can be used. And it is a right promised by a law called the Constitution (ever heard of it). It doesn't suit ME, it suits the argument.
Ever hear of hate speech?
Yes, I have heard of hate speech, it's "is speech which attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, or gender". The painting is hardly hate speech unless it's discriminatory against orange people.
Even fool Liberals should be abe to grasp what that message sends to impressionable students.
It send a negative message sure, but the students are not really impressionable (if you even know what that means). They can easily not accept the message.
This is not on someone's yard or house. THIS IS ON OUR PUBLIC COLLEGE WALLS SENDING A HUGE MESSAGE FROM THOSE WHO ARE SUPPOSE TO BE TOLERANT OF DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT!
Also, the university is "diverse of thought". That is your quote. Therefore, they should be able to paint what they want to.
I'm not agreeing with their message but they have every right to paint it, whether the head be Trump's, Hillary's, or Obama's.
I especially hate people that have life-after-death experiences because they're just so full of it, you know? 'Oh, I had an accident, and then I was headed towards this bright white light.' You know, the first thing an ambulance crew does when they find an unconscious victim? They shine something in your eye.
There are 11 people hanging onto a rope that comes down from an airplane. 10 of them are blonde, and one is a brunette. They all decide that one person should get off because if they don't, the rope will break and everyone will die. No one can decide who should go, so finally the brunette delivers a very touching speech, ending with the words, "I'll get off." The blondes, all moved by the brunette's speech, start clapping. Problem solved.
There was a blonde who just got sick and tired of all the blonde jokes. One evening, she went home and memorized all the state capitals. Back in the office the next day, some guy started telling a dumb blonde joke. She interrupted him with a shrill announcement, "I've had it up to here with these blonde jokes. I want you to know that this blonde went home last night and did something probably none of you could do. I memorized all the state capitals." One of the guys, of course, said, "I don't believe you. What is the capital of Nevada?" "N," she answered.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
