Why is this not a RECOGNIZED ILLNESS? Are you kidding me?http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/14.gifhttp://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/14.gifhttp://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/14.gif

I'm through. I try to answer everyone's questions because you ask them. I do that because it's common courtesy to answer someone when they address you. So y'all think I don't think, I'm illogical, irrational, dense, and imply I'm mentally ill(?????)etc.http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/14.gifhttp://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/14.gifhttp://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/14.gif

Well, that's perfectly within your rights to think these things...............http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/103.gif

A person's religious, political, etc., convictions are personal to them. Some decide to involve themselves in world politics all the way to the other end of the spectrum where others involve themselves in no politics. So, in that respect it is up to each individual. But, as an individual, we are supposed to adhere to the Bible. [/b]

Emphasis mine.

Arella Mae- You say that your purpose on A2K is to have a discussion with people, and share ideas. You were horrified when you thought (erroneously) that I was attempting to "convert" you to my way of thinking.

Looking at your statement above, what conclusions (from the highlighted phrases) do you think that we may infer from YOUR words?

She's not a listener.

This is not news...

so are threads with her posts essentially some sort of space for different views??? Seems easier to open new threads.


She loves the attention, osso.

I am beginning to suspect that J_B and Arella Mae are the same person.

There have been rumors circulating that H20MAN and I are one and the same, probably because we always seem to be on the same thread and right around the same time.

And now we see the same thing happening with J_B and Arella Mae.

Coincidence?


I think not.

There's always the possibility that the exercise isn't just for her benefit.

I'm sorry you are being forced to read these pages.

I didn't need him to tell me that I wasn't doing anything wrong according to the constitution, which is all I have been trying to get across to anyone anyway. Now, it may be your opinion and the opinion of others that I am wrong in doing this, but until I am restricted by the Constitution of the United States of America in voting my conscience, that is what I am going to do. And I fully expect each and everyone of you to do the same thing, whether I agree with your decision or not.[/color]


You cannot show a post where anyone here has said that you do not have the constitutional right to vote your conscience. I and I am sure the others also absolutely defend your RIGHT to do so.

I tend to look at this discussion as an attempt to give your conscience objective factual material to work with, as it appears the tank is nearly empty.

I remember when I was a kid, I always thought that the way that my family ran things was the "normal" way that a family was. It was only when I had been married a few years, that I began to see a number of things.

There were certain things about my family that were dysfunctional.
Other families lived their lives differently than mine.
The interrelationships amongst family members were totally different from one family to another.

Oh sure, I was able to perceive differences when I lived in my parent's house. But I was too close to the situation to be able to judge objectively. It was only when I was able to get some time and space, that I saw things in a more realistic light.

I think that there are people who are so involved, whether it be in a religion, a political party or a culture, that it is difficult for them to get beyond what is familiar and comfortable.

Phoenix, Well put. For some, probably many, they never get the opportunity for enough "distance" to see it objectively.

My question for timber was an honest one and not meant to offend you or anybody else.
Although "illness" may be a strong word (some doctors would argue it's the wrong word, opting for "disorder" or some other, less unpleasant term), you can clearly see that the only reason your belief does not fit the description is because there are so many who share similar beliefs.
Maybe someone can explain why that, alone, should be reason enough for exemption. In my view, it is cause for greater concern (which is why I decided to ask the question).

Ma... you said quote Excuse me? And just where have you gotten from anything I have ever posted that I would shed blood or are you referring to someone else shedding blood here ) unquote
Well Ma... I was "into" abuzz long before I joined able2know, am not very well educated... was dumb in other words, started work at 13, that pretty near sums up my life. Have a lot to thank abuzz and able2know for, have learnt sooo much since the day I bought my computer, concidering I was only 67 years old.
So when I said.... quote " if its true, that over 80 % of the USA population are "Christians" and enough of them "think" like MA..... give em time and you'll have a country with the power to enforce "the word of their God" and "jesus christ!" watch the blood flow then. " unquote.
Is MA, I think, what most of the others who are trying to "enlighten" you are inferring. I only wish the people who need religion would go get it in their buildings designed for all their god things, thus, leaving it out of the buildings designed for running the factual needs of the people....the place where action speaks louder than words,...instead of where mythical words speak louder than action.

Why our congress continues to waste time to confrim the existence of one religion or another shows why their performance rating is so low.

We gotta get rid of all of them; they're a shameful lot with no brains or understanding of the Constitution or Bill of Rights.

What makes you think it's "my" democratic congresss? Are you a fool?
Congress has a lower performance rating than 8ush, and you should know by now what I think about Bush.
