I love your rules,especially the one....treat others like you wish to be treated.
That was big in our home as I was growing up and it is just as big in my home now.
Along with everyday random acts of kindness....if we always live by these two rules then we can be sure to find a real inner happiness.x. - Debyl1
I hate no one.
I am cruel to no one.
I am a mere mortal who The Divine has chosen to speak to.
The Divine needs no proof, He is above all human failings.
Mock me, it does not hurt, i forgo all pride and sily human comforts.
All can read "The Message" and accept it or not.
I do not judge.
I pass one what i am told. - John Jay
Well said Benison. - Sally
Dear John Jay, like you I also have had divine revelations, wonderful revelations on the need to love all human kind, on compassion and empathy. The Divine revealed to me that he/she has no interest whatsoever in who has sex with whom.
Now let me make it very clear, you cannot prove these divine revelations that you claim you have, no more can I. All you can prove is your unrelenting hatred of anyone who does not subscribe to your very sick philosophies.
So Hooplarians, come join me in the "Church of the Unbelievers of John Jay's Divine". Let us be free of his hatred and cruelty. - sue Bell
Hmmm, lets hope that John Jay fella doesn't get wind of this! - Will Marshall
Regardless of the legality of the owners' actions, they need to be upfront in their advertising and state 'no poofs and dykes please' and spare themselves bad international publicity and embarrassment to their innocently booked guests.
They have gone one step further than the usual preface to a homophobic comment than 'I don't care what they do behind closed doors...'. They do actually care. - Andrew
we can only hope stories about these horrible people become rarer but you have to wonder ? its pretty scary when the question of will you let my boy/girlfriend stay tonight ? happens but I think if you continue to let the boys ask whatever questions they need to ask you shouldn't have any probs, my daughter now 21 seemed to slowly get us used to haveing her boyfriend around - all seemed to happen by osmosis ! My boys 16 and 18 seem abit slower at bringing the girlfriends home - no complaints here - but they know we dont want one night stands and seem to respect this - marie
The tornado in Oklahoma was a sign of God's anger.
I went into a deep stage of reflection and this was revealed to me by The Divine.
As was Cyclone Sandy a warning from God for America not to vote for The Anti Christ Obama. - John Jay
Gee, what's with the cynicism here, just because Ruddy may have seen the fact that same sex marriage doesn't affect opposite sex marriage, it has nothing to do with politics, because he doesn't have the support of his party, so, he will never come back, and John Jay, you will be glad to know that same sex marriage is becoming a reality all around the world and god hasn't raised a finger to do anything about it, me being here to post this is testament to this. - Will Marshall
My middle son has ADHD and my youngest autism and ADHD. There is a big genetic crossover between the 2 conditions; that is they share many of the same genes. My son with ADHD is in no way disabled, but has low muscle tone and dyspraxia, just like my son with autism. These are neurological manifestations of a biological disorder and I get fed up when people try to claim that ADHD is a 'social construct'. ADHD is real folks and the medication, while not a panacea, helps my kids hugely. For the record I'm a pharmacist and my husband is a doctor, so we're pretty informed consumers.
As for the French! While there are many things to admire about the French their attitude to childhood disorders is not one of them. The French are about 40 years behind the rest of the Western world in their treatment of autism. This genetically-based neurological disorder is still treated by Freudian psychoanalysis and blamed fairly and squarely on the mother! The net result is that French families have to leave France to get proper evidence-based treatment for their children with autism. Sure the biological model of mental health is imperfect but the French are not being progressive here - they're still stuck in the 1960s. See the link if you don't believe me.
