Subject: Oh my oh my Gay or Straight


I opened a can of worms, and I am glad.

I just want to state  that the way a person thinks can also be thrown into the mix.  I don't hate  people (Yes hate)  who are different than  myself whether it stems from color, their clothing
their language, their hairstyle etc. I do question things that I don't understand such as , I would like to be a churchgoing Christian but all those that go to church dare not speak out or put their hands over their ears

if they hear a negative word being spoken against Judaism.  Politicians,    same thing.   They can sit and do or say nothiNg about Gods Chosen  people stealing the land and  water from The Palestinians with glee,.totally unapposed  by christianity .Its always we have to protect the poor Jews".  In todays DD there is an article that was published in The Jewish Tribune,  written by the Leader of  The Canadian Green Party where she wrote 'Israel is the bullwark of Democracy in The Middle east.  The gentleman that commented on it said,  Israel has 20 laws in place that affects Christians   and  Arabs (Maybe they hate Arabs  because  they are the ones  with the most Semitic Blood?

So I hate a Wee State in our world that drags us into conflict with other nations because North Korea or Iran might stumble onto owning a Nuclear bomb.   Whilst poor wee Israel  sits with enough Nuclear,Chemical and Biological weapons to destroy the  whole  world,    and they have bragged about it,   so why is it so imperative that  Stephen Harper  et al have to go to war with other nations to protect Israel?      Why....Yes I hate that whole bull crap maneuver.   We as in, the rest of the world have to be brain dead to have allowed it to happen. You don't think that we are in their clutches?     we are in their clutches.   God   did create a few million Frankenstein Monsters,  and they own us.

So in my mind God   does make mistakes. In the animal kingdom,   a bull jumps another bull,a cow jumps another cow,  goats, sheep roosters etc. Nature is not perfect in any way
In regards to Gender and which comes out being dominant . I guess this question is older than Moses. In the bible (holy of course)    that's when it first showed up as being a sin.   but it was
already installed or instilled in the animal kingdom.  through creation,   and if God  created all,   then He   made a mistake or was a sadist .   Can we not see that there is something more than
just bullheadedness that  would  cause   people to want to be Gay,  and have to hide in fear of being found out for their whole life?. I find that  really hard to grasp?

If gay pride parades infuriate people I don't understand that either.   As a child I learned how to turn on the radio  when I wanted to listen to something  and to turn it off or change the station when I didnt.

If I am going through the TV stations and come across a gay pride parade, I change the channel.   I think at last count there are close to 100 o more channels.If a gay pride parade is coming down the street, I dont stand and gauk, because I am not interested in them. I don't hate them, I simply am not interested in them. It does nothing to threaten my Children, My grandchildren or
my Great Grand children. There will be a hell of a lot of other problems for them to face in this Godforsaken world.

Toronto school trustee called 'homophobic' for questioning nudity at 'family friendly' Pride parade

by Peter Baklinski

Mon Feb 17, 2014 19:23 EST
Under Canada's Criminal Code it is illegal to be nude in a "public place." Section 174 states that a person who is "so clad as to offend against public decency or order" is "guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction."
Sotiropoulos says that city officials have a double standard when it comes to nudity at the Pride parade....
Toronto city officials are not the only ones to turn a blind eye to nudity in the Pride parade. Last year both Vancouver police and city officials announced they had no issues with public nudity at the city's annual gay Pride parade, expressing no interest in upholding the law in this regard.... (emphasis added)

Fracking and destructive tentacles across the globe

I find it interesting the statement in this article which states that --Many of the companies that once operated these fracking wells are seeking bankruptcy and unable to pay the cost of cleaning up the land they leased.
Odd--that is the same thing the railway company acted after the Lac-Megantic destruction
