“Andres64 - Why do you pursue and comment on posts with God; in particular you attack edifying comments. Who are you trying to convince? You are only shadowboxing with your own demons. I'll give you a hint... you'll never win that duel.
If you don't have faith why come to faith posts like a moth to a flame? Perhaps you should examine the inner workings of your own heart because it seems you are having spiritual conflicts.
But you are lucky after all. For we who believe in God are commanded to love you; for those who are lost in the quagmire of their own willfulness are in more danger than a lamb before slaughter.
And Syntax - thanks for the quote -
"Here is a related saying of St. Isaac of Syria that I really like: "Spread your cloak over those who fall into sin, each and every one, and shield them.
And if you cannot take the fault on yourself and accept punishment in their place, do not destroy their character." "
Good luck to you,”

“--Why do you pursue and comment on posts with God;
Because it's a silly myth perpetuated by ignorance that needs to be left behind.
--Who are you trying to convince?
Anyone open to logic.
--You are only shadowboxing with your own demons. I'll give you a hint... you'll never win that duel.
I'll give you a hint: leave psychiatry to the professionals.
--If you don't have faith why come to faith posts like a moth to a flame?
--Perhaps you should examine the inner workings of your own heart because it seems you are having spiritual conflicts.
Not at all.
--But you are lucky after all. For we who believe in God are commanded to love you;
Those of you who believe in god are silly, and one can not be commanded to love.
--for those who are lost in the quagmire of their own willfulness are in more danger than a lamb before slaughter.
In danger of what; eternal torture for my thoughts?

Cool. So you're volunteering to take my place in hell?”
“Wow... kudos to the author. He is clearly having an honest dialog on an extremely important subject. I used to be a big meat eater and I mean big time. My favorite dish was Steak Tartar. Main ingredient - Raw Beef! It grosses me out now that I think about it. I've been vegan for 2+ years now and I can tell you it makes you feel, look and be a better person. Compassion in attractive and not having artificial hormones running through your body is nice too. Everyone should read 'The China Study' and educate themselves on this subject. Good job Craig...”

“You probably aren't interested in hearing about the thorough debunking of the China study lol. If you are, you can Google it.”
“God, spirituality and good stewardship of our planet are all interlinked and commendable. Certainly if you believe in the goodness and greatness of God you would, if you are true in faith, be even more galvanized to do better; for other people, animals and the environment. I believe this article conveyed a noble sentiment. Well done!”

“It is good to see so much about the dangers in our products lately. I finally was able to talk to my Representative today about how so many are sick from the chemicals in our products. I have written here for years trying to tell everyone.
Legislation was introduced in the Senate, the House, and a cosmetics bill has been introduced. Sadly I have written for 12 years trying to get someone to listen. I have friends all over the world that get very ill just around fragrance, soaps, detergents. I would like somone to test the dryer exhaust which most of us really suffer from because exhaust systems are by the windows.
I can't begin to tell you how tired I am of vomiting for hours when I get exposed to certain chemicals. I never know when it will happen. Migraines are the worse. It is hard to believe it has taken so many years but will this legislation do something for the most sick of the sick. It is like living in a bubble and people don't like this illness at all so we are open to abuse.
Thank you for writing such a nice post. I will share with people I know. I am not as sick as some that have to live in a tent or someplace not indoors. So sad. Linda”

“Yes, the fire is nowhere near the fuel tanks.
They are lucky to have survived. It actually looks like a good,
but hard (so they could stop short and escape) landing,
runway to spare and both wings intact and pointing the right direction.”

“Katy is right. Yes, they are both over the top performers and tastes can vary - but God is off limits. And for many what the cross represents is sacred.
If one wants to be respected as a musician, an artist or for being gay (or supporting gay rights) etc; then one should also give respect. Especially to the most fundamental part that makes us human - our spirituality.
Respect God (and if you don't have faith- respect your brethren who do!)”

“Religion may be the most fundamental part of what makes us stupid. In fact it's done so much to destroy the nonhumans of the world that I actively disrespect it.”

“I would hardly put Katy Perry in that category of being right, though she is more right wing then she probably knows. Anyway, Katy "sold her soul to the devil" her words verbatim. She said it herself so how can she be an authority on blasphemy? She's on her way to the fiery furnace anyway just for being tone deaf. Going by the Bible one can't agree with anyone who sold it to Satan it makes you as much of a furtive libertine.”

“How can the invisible friend in the sky, the boogey man aka God be off limits. Shall we declare Santa off limits just because people who dont know any better believe in him?”
laddieluv on Jun 10, 2010 at 14:23:33
“Who the he** are YOU to tell ANYONE what/who is "off limits"!
You religious nuts. Always so insecure that if anyone says anything you don't like about YOUR god, you cry and whine and stamp your feet.
Why don't YOU respect other people's rights to say what they want or feel? First amendment. Separation of church and state. Ever heard of those?
And life isn't "fair." Respect has NOTHING to do with your religion. I think you're an idiot to believe in some white-haired guy sitting up in the clouds. But I'm within my rights to think what I want. And you also. Just don't expect me to give your silly, unprovable beliefs any credence.
The only thing I "respect" is YOUR right to believe what you want. As long as you don't infringe on my right to do the same. Or come to my door. Or shove that silly "junk" down my throat.

“Jesus, Mary, Joseph and all the Saints!!! What in the hell are you talking about! GOD IS OFF LIMITS? REALLY? Why should she edit herself to respect your views. Now, it hinders the chance of you being friends, but she can respect humanity and others and express herself at the same time. They are not mutually exclusive.
FYI - The fundamental part that makes us human is our ability to treat others as we would like to be treated and God does not have a monopoly on this virtue. I have no problem with you expressing your view so long as you have no problem with me expressing my view.”
