This a lottrey website, each time the bible and religion topics pop up there is an uproar hatred and insults , believers and non believers  are here on lp. May be such topics needs to be banned to bring peace to all. This means religion, the bible and God topics needs to be in blogs or banned !! This should not be an offence to the believer and non believer.This a lottrey website lets talk about  the lottrey.Subject matter becomes too sensitve to others.

This is the way I feel about politics in the threads on LP.   An uproar of hatred and insults occur as well, when really the subject had nothing to do with politics.  I voted yes, prayer changes things.

    How far shouldst this nanny-diversity go?

      I'll tell ya how far it goes.

      They won't be happy until everybody is forced to wear a helmet while playing checkers.

      When they think something is a good idea and want to do it, they want everybody else forced to do it.

      And you can't talk sense to them because it's a genetic defect that short circuits common sense.

       

      I'm offended!

      Somebody do something about it!

      Somebody enact a new law or make a new rule, quick!

        Common sense is not so common anymore, so you are a minority.
        Since you are a minority, there will be new entitlements awarded to you.

        1)     
        1) You can have days off without pay.

        2)     
        2) You get a special place to check on all forms.

        3)     
        3) Nobody can insult you for having common sense, it will be a law.

        4)     
        4) Open container laws no longer apply to you. You are special.

        5)     
        5) Anybody who wants to be special will have to prove they have common sense.

        6)     
        6) You will be exempt from taxation without representation.

        7)     
        7) Your dogs are special too.

            You entitleists are never satisfied.
            The world is handed to you on a silver platter and you want more. More rights,
            more privileges and more entitlements. More , more , more.

             

            Next you will bee wanting to impede the entitlements
            of others like the mouth breathers and gothic’s. Why? Because you don’t feel
            special enough.

             

            You get days off without pay and that’s
            as far as it goes. You’re not special anymore.

            And,... you will have to glean for the straw to make bricks with. Same quota.

              Well start complaining to Todd about the news that someone prayed to God for their mother to win the lottery. Complain there.

              Add to that the whole mystical forum goes in the trash can so there is nothing of any spititual nature discussed on site.

              That includes 'Luck".

              DD

              He'll (Todd) read this.

              Either way is fine with me.  Perhaps the exceptions can be the mystical forum and blogs.

              That includes 'Luck".

              I guess you'd have to explain that to me? Are you saying God is luck or that all things come from God, therefore that includes "luck?"

              Really not that important to me, whatever plan removes the distraction(s) from the main forums would be a step in the right direction.

                I’ll answer that about luck because luck is a superstition and a belief system. It is spiritualism. So why should
                there not be news, threads and posts that speak of other spiritualistic matters? 

                 You may not understand what spiritualism is, but that does not mean you can influence things your way.

                Spiritualism has devil spirits behind it.
                 Objects can be polluted as well as the mind.

                 Whether they know it or not, the adherent may as well be playing with a Ouija board.

                {That text was for the people reading this as if I was talking to another person.}

                 

                This is for you: look for a new home. See you when I return in glory.

                    In all honesty, are you saying the distractions are spiritual, especially "luck?"  I don't see much in the way of "devil spirits" causing arguments in threads.  Unless you consider the lack-of religion to be devil spirits?

                      When you say prayer changes things do you mean the lottrey ? or something else ? like health prosperity etc ? what do you mean exactly ?

                            Addai, please re-read my post that you quoted, in its entirety.  It wasn't directed to you.  It was directed to this post by rdgrnr, which indirectly is aimed at you, since you suggested moving religious discussion.  I agreed with your plan to move religious distractions.

                             

                            I'll tell ya how far it goes.

                            They won't be happy until everybody is forced to wear a helmet while playing checkers.

                            When they think something is a good idea and want to do it, they want everybody else forced to do it.

                            And you can't talk sense to them because it's a genetic defect that short circuits common sense.

                             

                            I'm offended!

                            Somebody do something about it!

                            Somebody enact a new law or make a new rule, quick!"

                              I want to make a wager.

                              Either you or an attorney can set this up.

                              Show me a fact regarding any of the Bible stories.

                              I'll personally give you a thousand bucks If you are successful.

                              Chair

                              i will go you one far better,  and show you how a real man of integrity operates.

                              later tonight i will take that bet.....prove my case.....and never take a dime from you while doing it.

                              not only that,  i will perform a 2 for one deal,  by reminding the reading audience you totally wussed out of a sure $1000 because you can't back up nothing you attempt to sell as "true"

                              it was a slam dunk $1000 for you,  and your only response instead was to turn the tables around on me.

                              about the only thing "true" about your consistentcy abilities is your screename

                              anything else you would like to add to dig yourself a bigger hole ?

                                          "i am .........."meant to"       

                              P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                                       until further notice,  it's  france everyday
