When you start answering my questions I will think about answering yours, Mel. Now, how many minorities belong to your congregation? How many belong to your STP Tea Party? What good works does your church do for the poor, underprivileged, hungry, battered or pregnant?

Allie, as my last post did not completely post, my question to you is how is my question to Monkeyboy 'hateful" as you remarked on 2-2 at 8: 44 AM?

GioAllie when you wrote, "I,ve not presented "my version of christianity" or any versionsir or ma'am -I find that remark most insulting. I posted nothing in referrence to "homophobes." Those are your words. I merely responded to a minister's letter," when and where did I make any reference to your version of Christianity? The reference I made was in reference to Monkeyboy's remarks. I wrote, "Monkey how is calling those who disagree with you homophobes, bigots and racists consistent with your liberal version of Christianity?" He judges me to be bigoted, intolerant and homophobic. When he calls me names like homophobe, bigot and other epithets, the question to him is: how is his use of these names and judgmental remarks consistent with his version of liberal Christianity which constantly tells others not to judge and to be more civil? He hasn't answered it yet after many requests for him to do so. How is a question like that to him "hateful&

Yes, he is. He loves to see his name in the paper and it is always very controversial. He is/was? the head Muckymuck of the local Tea Party and gets his 2 jobs confused. He wants to force his religious beliefs on everyone else because he does not "believe in" separation of church and state yet claims it is in the interests of protecting our rights. How do you protect them by taking them away?

I have never heard an ordained man of the cloth speak in that tone before.

Gio, yes, apologeticsnow is Rev Mel. He won't answer my questions because it is too embarrassing for him.

Mel, I would never call someone a homophobe, racist or bigot simply because they disagreed with me. I would only use those terms if that person's behaviors indicated that is what they were.

I've been advised that the author of the hateful 6:22pm post and the author of the passionate letter are one and the same. Say it isn.t so.

I'm still wondering what Rev Mel's church is doing for locals putting babies up for adoption or considering it. Does his church sponsor an adoption service? Daycare center? Battered women's services? Do they even offer a food bank, meals on wheels? Exactly what does his church do to help those in the community who are in need?

Reverend, I see that a number of posters here question your passion on this issue----they must be those who agree that a debate must include only one side---theirs.

Bite your little tongue Section...I was cute as a button when I was 16. I still am all these years later! I don't know why people consider babies cute: they're mini variations of us, of mixed DNA...they'll evolve into kids, then adults, then old people. Those old people are still the same dreaded person they were when they were a baby, why aren't they considered "cute"?

Ask any kid on the street. Or for drugs. It will take you minutes to find what you want.

Reverend, I never dreamed a complement directed at you would result in a disagreement--but that seems to be the rule on this blog with some who we all know.

I conclude that the author is truly passionate about his position on this issue--everyone on both sides of women's rights and the rule of law should be.
