Great reply, thank you! There is well-known saying: "Preach the Gospel at all times. When necessary, use words".
Ah, you want to dictate to others what and how they should think.
Okay, then let me rephrase: In most cases where women aren't being allowed to leave the house without wearing a burqa (which is the group you're aiming to "show support" for) do you think they will be somehow more liberated by banning public wearing of the burqa? Or do you think they will just lose the freedom to leave the house?
I'm sorry but I can't possibly believe you until it's been proven in a court of law.
The universe itself or the universe as we know it?
To be fair. Unicorns. . just like God. . .are described as real, in the Bible. It refers to them eight times. That should equate to evidence, for you, at least.

There is little evidence that Paul knew of any of the gospels, and why would he? He was writing to specific churches, and there is no evidence in the epistles that he knew of any other writings, or that the gospel writers knew of his epistles. Apparently, Paul's letters were unknown until they were gathered together in about 100CE, edited, and circulated as a collection. The fact that they were edited is established by the fact that 2nd Corinthians is a combination of at least 2, and possibly as many as 5 other letters, so what any of them original said, is unknowable.
Lol, I sit in all my friends laps and lie my head on the boobie. Be prepared for cuddles.
Religion is good for keeping the masses under control. It keeps many who have a tendency to murder, kill, rape and steal from doing so. It populates the world.
It was pretty good. I enjoyed it. Of course the 80's music played a part. Hair Metal!
Because you don't account for the curse of God that is on all of creation because of man's fall. We were in charge, we were responsible, we messed it up. God gave us a way out afterward and many pass it by without a second thought.......It's sad.

If it isn't the religious nuts in the middle east interfering with human rights, it's the local religious nuts interfering with human rights.
They are just following the teachings of their parents - like father, like son.
Maybe. But I wonder what are the traits that made me not desire able? I might be over thinking.
So far as humanity can tell through medical research, it isn't genetic. So far.
I would find it bizarre except I grew up the same way. I do think mom may have to put her foot down
You "allow" her by not setting boundaries and having her get a job. If she asks for something tell her to work for it. You and her family have "allowed" her to be dependent on you, the only way to stop it is to stop babying her. If you and her family aren't willing to set boundaries then you really don't have anything to complain about. Not trying to be mean, but it's the truth.
