    On the other hand, this is probably sad, because he probably BELIEVES this.

    Let me splain this to you, Lucy*.

    It was not an accusation that you were accusing us of "harassing and mocking gays" - it was a COMPARISON. Like a hypothetical.

    YOU are here, IMOHBAO, to "harass and mock" Christians. You are not here for fellowship, or to share recipes or fashion tips.

    ON THE OTHER HAND, I do not go to any LGBTXGSBKLN discussion sites to "harass and mock gays".

    Now, if you were to bash Christians on those LBGT+++ sites who were there to attack you, I'd never know it, because I wouldn't even be there!



    *this is a reference to the comedy show where Ricky and Lucy regularly have misunderstandings and Ricky says "you gots a lot of splanin to do, Lucy" (just in case this is taken as 'harassing and mocking gays' by using a feminine name)

    They are your words: "harassing and mocking gays".

    - it was a COMPARISON. Like a hypothetical.
    Yeah right, Donald.

    YOU are here, IMOHBAO, to "harass and mock" Christians.
    “IMOHBAO”??

    Stop judging others by your own standards. I am here for discussion and rational argumentation.

    ON THE OTHER HAND, I do not go to any LGBTXGSBKLN discussion sites to "harass and mock gays".
    “LGBTXGSBKLN”???

    Why would you when you can just as easily do it here, plus get lots of support from the gang for your schoolyard antics.

    Now, if you were to bash Christians on those LBGT+++ sites who were there to attack you, I'd never know it, because I wouldn't even be there!
    Not that we’re mocking “LBGT+++ sites”, are we? Would you make a wedding cake for a gay couple, or issue a marriage license?

    and nobody outside of perhaps a small minority of fundamentalists thinks homosexuals are possessed by evil spirits.
    Not just a "small minority of Evangelicals! The Catholic Church in many cases believes in demonic possession re homosexuals.

    Regardless, whether by demon possession or straight out accusations of "sinning", neither position is appropriate for LGBT people. As I said, the most reasonable position, and the one adopted by law, is to provide professional counseling for those experiencing difficulty with their sexual orientation. So-called reparative therapy or unwanted exorcisms can be harmful to the victims of it and is grounded in the false notion that homosexuality is unnatural and bad.

    Slate! Even that emotionally laden screed admits this is pretty rare. If you were trying to prove that the belief is normative, you failed.

    Keep digging, Tassman. You'll come out in Kansas eventually.

    Yes - I apologize for using a general comparison that would confuse and upset somebody incapable of logical thought - which is why I explained the comparison.

    Yeah right, Donald.
    Tassman - Just because you are becoming more and more like your version of Trump doesn't mean you should see everybody else that way.

    “IMOHBAO”??
    Yes.


    Stop judging others by your own standards. I am here for discussion and rational argumentation.


    You're like the dude who claims to read Playboy for the articles.

    “LGBTXGSBKLN”???
    Yes, I am mocking the ever-expanding grouping. And, as I said, I don't go to LGBTXGSBKLN to mock and attack gays like you come here to mock and attack Christians and Christianity.

    Why would you when you can just as easily do it here, plus get lots of support from the gang for your schoolyard antics.
    You don't have to be here, you dolt. You come here like a little bully yourself, but when somebody stands up to you, you show what a prissy little Drama Queen you really are.

    Not that we’re mocking “LBGT+++ sites”, are we?
    No, "we" aren't doing anything such thing. I, however, am mocking the ever-expanding grouping. It won't be long before NAMBLA is back in the fold.

    Would you make a wedding cake for a gay couple, or issue a marriage license?
    Absolutely not. Nor would I go to their house, place of business, or discussion board to harass and mock them. YOU, however, are here exactly for that purpose.

    He is only here to harass and mock and distort the truth.
