    This is excellent social commentary. Well done.

  2. If he can make a painting of a priest abusing choir boys and the pope watching, i’ll buy it

  3. I would be thoroughly put off my wedding if he conducted it!!

  4. Nice one. Light blue touch paper and retire…

  5. musclelad23 17 Jun 2010, 9:21pm

    Buy paint um.. doe you mean badly photoshopped?

  6. I wouldn’t want to be in the same room as him. He’s a bigoted, closed minded, self righteous little man.

  7. @spanner well from what I can tell from the quality of the picture it looks like a quick photoshop but thats the quality of it. I think if it was painted, then this guy has got to learn the light is coming from the background and the people don’t exactly match the lighting of the background and the picture looks flat for that. I can pick a few thing but that doesnt detract from the subject matter its a good thing Kevin Sharkey is able to have the balls to display this in a gallery.

    I certainly would not want a member of ‘The Catholic Paepaphile Assosiation’ conducting my cerimony!

  9. Nice :-)

  10. HA HA HA

    Nice one !!!

  11. It’s good but it could be more controversial… I would have added a thought bubble above the pope’s head with the words “It should’ve been me”!
    In fact this is begging for the caption competition treatment

  12. we all know the stance of the Catholic Church on Gays and Gay Marriages. Civil marriage is not the same as a Catholic Marriage and don’t think many gays would want that anyway! I wouldn’t for sure! What we want from the Church is openess towards gay people, gay unions and the end of its homophobic campaign agains’t gays. But, with Benny in charge that will never happen! The Catholic Church will auto-extinct itself in secular societies. The world would be a better place without religion!

  13. I don’t care if its a stellar-quality painting for a 5-year old’s attempt using microsoft paint, I think the idea to do it is ace. I’d like to warmly shake the artist by the hand.

  14. Artist paints picture?

    Why is this news?

  15. Good of him thinking and working to bring it into fruition. However, I think this is a stark opposite to the pope we know and the metaphor does not ring a bell in my own head. As such, I wonders if people would not see it more as a big joke, a ridicle and a mere caricature.

    #2 comment is what would have send out a stronger message and make more impact.

    As for wedding or civil partnership, i would rather have none than allow this particular pope conduct it. I can allow him in the room just to spite him instead.

    But his effort is well appreciated.

  16. J. Alan Lukes 18 Jun 2010, 3:14pm

    Well done! We need more artists following suit. I would purchase a T-Shirt with that on and I have many friends who would too! The artist could make a bloody fortune just in T-Shirts! Keep up the good work!

  17. There may be a link between creativity and mental disorders, and I believe this guy is closer to mental illness than creativity.

    Some forms of emotional distress are more common among writers, artists and musicians, and serious depression strikes artists ten times more often than it does the general population.

    Donegal-born Sharkey, 49, is bisexual and I’m certain he has some weird sexual ideas and behaviors that he likes to manifest in his paintings.
    His painting will have limited reaction amongst homosexuals — but heterosexuals, will simply shrug their shoulders and
    say, “What can you expect?”

  18. @hank

    I think you’ll find the majority of heterosexuals look at much of the bizarre thinking that powers the catholic church and just shrug. Finding a lot wrong with the RC is far from being a gay minority interest, and they’ve brought most of it on themselves.

    That said, not enormously impressed by the painting. I suspect the artist is rather like that resourceful poet who sent his work to Stephen green- sgreen predictably outraged, poet sells several hundred of his books instead of the five he would usuallly expect to shift. And good luck to them both.

  19. its not a painting. its a very bad photoshop job. and a fukcin awful piece of art. sort of thing the sun newspaper would do when writing a story about gay marriage. click the link – that’s a good painting of the pope.

  20. “but heterosexuals, will simply shrug their shoulders and
    say, “What can you expect?””

    LOL! You mean the way heterosexual people shrug their shoulders at gay artists because they’re gay???? Like Leonardo Da Vinci, or Michelangelo? Or Andy Warhol? Or Frida Kahlo? Do people shrug their shoulders at those artists?

    You do say such daft things Hank.

  21. His painting will have limited reaction amongst homosexuals — but heterosexuals, will simply shrug their shoulders

    Wow Hank (#17), you really must be obsessed with sex to imagine that (1) you can predict how all homosexuals will behave, and (2) you can speak for all heterosexuals – I expect that in your estimation that latter category would be about 5.8bn people, so who are you to speak for them? God?

    Just as a matter of interest, would you consider the pope a heterosexual? On what evidence?*

    * Though I certainly hope the present one is, God knows he’s creepy enough.

  22. martin bryab 19 Jun 2010, 3:26am

    totally loving this article, Its about time someone stood up and said hey enough is enough let us get on with it. I bet this painting will aggravate the church so much! it should be front page news just to get our own back! congrats!!!

  23. hahaa nice…. crap.. does this mean Catholics are gonna start rioting like Muslims over the Muhammad business?

  24. Whether the painting was photoshopped or not, it’s a good way to bring the issue to the fore again.

    Plenty of religious groups do want to celebrate same-sex marriages (Unitarians, Liberal Jews, Quakers, Pagans and the Metropolitan Community Church). It was hoped that the recent Equality Act would allow those churches who wanted to hold civil partnership ceremonies to do so, but it seems to have been scuppered by the fact that there was no set time for this to be introduced.

  25. Hi Will:
    I certainly wouldn’t put this guy in the same category of Leonardo Da Vinci, or Michelangelo, would you? Sharkey is second-rate in any part of the artistic community. Probably he’ll fade away after a short while, unless he can create another fluke piece of work.

    Regarding “L.Dv”. Or “Micho”… it would be interesting to know how much of their homosexuality contributed to their artistic work. Did they really feel that the homosexual drive made them a greater/better artist? Or did they simply take that part of their sexuality and satisfy that urge and they went back to artistic work? What did they think of their homosexual make-up? Did they think that homosexuality was a necessary part of their being…did they believe homosexuality contributed something special for artistic creation? Knowing how they felt about homosexuality in mankind would be nice to know.

    There’s much we can discuss about this subject and I’d read your comments.

  26. Jess Conrad 20 Jun 2010, 3:50pm

    HANK THE WANK.
    GUESS WHAT CATEGORY WE HOMOSEXUALS PUT YOU IN???

  27. Jess Conrad 20 Jun 2010, 4:00pm

    C..T FACE HANK IS MORE WORRIED ABOUT HOMOSEXUALS THAN THE OIL SPILL…YOU ASSHOLE!

  28. Hey Rehan…you wrote: “Wow Hank (#17), you really must be obsessed with sex to imagine that (1) you can predict how all homosexuals will behave, and (2) you can speak for all heterosexuals – I expect that in your estimation that latter category would be about 5.8bn people, so who are you to speak for them? God?
    Just as a matter of interest, would you consider the pope a heterosexual? On what evidence?”

    MY COMMENTS: I’m not obsessed with sex….I just made a statement of probability…
    (not a statement of fact) of how homosexuals will react….and since I’m a normal heterosexual I made a statement of how I’d expect them to react (why do you think that I’m in error in my thinking?). Everybody has opinions, so why do you react so negatively to my comments?

    No…I don’t think I’m God when I speak for the heterosexual community…I think I understand the heterosexual behavior/response in most cases….I envisioned the Bell Curve in their thinking.

    I don’t have any knowledge or evidence on the Pope’s sexuality and I couldn’t care less.

  29. Jess Conrad 21 Jun 2010, 6:03am

    LIAR HANK, YOU ARE NOT A NORMAL HETROSEXUAL. I HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY THAT YOU AND HAGART ARE BOTH SCREWING RENT-BOYS.

  30. “I certainly wouldn’t put this guy in the same category of Leonardo Da Vinci, or Michelangelo, would you?”

    No, not personally, but art is in the eye of the beholder and artistic merit is external to sexuality, isn’t it?

    “Did they really feel that the homosexual drive made them a greater/better artist?”

    You assume everyone is as obsessed with homosexuality as your are. Homosexual is what they are, its what we are (probably you too given your irrational and staggering protestations to the contrary), it defines who we are, not what we do. Art can be influenced by gay ideals or ideas, it can be an expression of one sexuality, but it is not the deciding factor in artistic merit nor is it some driving force you seem to think domninates our every waking moment. Unlike some cowards in this world, not pointing any fingers, we have long learned to stand up and accept who we are with comfort and pride. Do not assume all gay men are as obsessed with sex/sexuality or as mentally weak as others, again not pointing any fingers.

    It doesn’t take a wise man to see that, but it take a smart one to see bast their own narrow prejudice to accept that straight people do not “shrug their shoulder” at art simply becuase the artist is gay…. only people like you do that. But ultimately, people like you don’t really matter, Hank, to the wider world.

    Its more a deep question as to why do we always end up explaining the blatant obvious to religious nuts like you Hank, like you are retarded mentally damaged 4 year olds?

  31. Jess Conrad 21 Jun 2010, 3:06pm

    Well Said Will! The Hanks Of This World Are Irrelivant!

  32. Jess Conrad 21 Jun 2010, 5:40pm

    HANK
    DID YOU LEARN ABOUT SEX WHEN YOU SERVED JAIL-TIME IN FLORIDA STATE PEN?

  33. Personally I think there are more important things out in our big bad world to worry about who marries who and why???Who cares…You’re gay and want to marry your business…Move to Canada if u want it that bad or have ur own ceremony at home with friends and family to celebrate your union…Your hetrosexual and want to marry….Who cares…Everyone is entitled to do and marry whom ever they want…But Seriously folks, there are more important and controversial issues to worry about as both homo & hetrosexuals will encounter the same hardships joys love stress etc etc etc when married or in a relationship…

  34. .Hey Will,….you said…”own narrow prejudice to accept that straight people do not “shrug their shoulder” at art simply becuase the artist is gay…. only people like you do that.

    MY COMMENT: We don’t reject any artistic creation of “L.Da” or “Micho” even though they had homosexuality in their life…their works were worthy of acceptance by the world – both homosexual and heterosexual…but when someone like this Sharkey “artist” creates whatever he did…what was his purpose? Was it artistic creation or just some piece of asinine trash to further his (peculiar and confused bisexuality) agenda…whatever it is. Homosexuals continue to trash anything that they feel is intolerant of their lifestyle.

  35. Hey Will….when you said ….”Its more a deep question as to why do we always end up explaining the blatant obvious to religious nuts like you Hank, like you are retarded mentally damaged 4 year olds?

    MY COMMENT: You obviously are ignorant of the vast Christian philosophical people and their outstanding works that will compete with small-minded thinkers like your kind.

    If you really had an open mind you’d see reams of information such as I quote below…it can be expanded by thousands of outstanding Christian thinkers/writers… that you totally discount because they present a valid argument that you can’t accept.

    Here’s something to reconsider when you call us “retarded mentally damaged 4 year olds.”

    “In 1980, Time magazine reported a remarkable renaissance of religious belief among philosophers: God? Wasn’t he chased out of heaven by Marx, banished to the unconscious by Freud and announced by Nietzsche to be deceased? Did not Darwin drive him out of the empirical world?

    Well, not entirely. In a quiet revolution in thought and arguments that hardly anyone could have foreseen only two decades ago, God is making a comeback.

    Most intriguingly, this is happening not among theologians or ordinary believers … but in the crisp, intellectual circles of academic philosophers, where the consensus had long banished the Almighty from fruitful discourse. Now it is more respectable among philosophers than it has been for a generation to talk about the possibility of God’s existence.

    It would be difficult to overestimate the increase in anti-Christian sentiment among professional philosophers since the time of the Enlightenment. Yet in spite of the march of unbelief, a substantial number of prominent intellectuals has reclaimed intellectual ground for belief in God. This “quiet revolution” has been led by Alvin Plantinga, described in the Time article as “the leading Protestant philosopher of God.” Battles have been fought and won at Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, Toronto and Calvin College by a mighty host of powerful and creative thinkers.

    Will…open your closed mind and see there’s much more in this world than the atheistic life you follow.

    Regardless of what you think Christianity will dominate the minds
    of people who are not afraid to think on the deeper meaning of life.

  36. Hey Jess…from the content of your comments, I’d estimate your
    IQ to be about 70-75…but maybe that’s a bit too generous.
    Make some intelligent comments or keep your comments to yourself
    and we’ll never know how ignorant you really are.

  37. Jess Conrad 22 Jun 2010, 7:33am

    HEY HANK…WILL’S Name Is WILL and Not ‘Hey Will’ You Klutzy Sudo-Hetro. Hey Hank….Take a Hike!….You are the original Homosexual Matrix Hank Sweetie!

  38. “his (peculiar and confused bisexuality) agenda”

    That statement makes your whole argument stupid, so forgive me if I don’t get embroiled in a discussion with someone who can’t seem to stay on topic.

    “You obviously are ignorant of the vast Christian philosophical people and their outstanding works that will compete with small-minded thinkers like your kind.”

    No, I’m not, actually more people think like me than you…. a LOT more. Sorry.

    While I know you love to rant over the bible and throw mindless god-sad-this-I-know nonsense , I really am bored with that same old repetitive garbage you spew. I didn’t really bother to read the rest, we’ve seen it all before.

    “Regardless of what you think Christianity will dominate the minds
    of people who are not afraid to think on the deeper meaning of life”

    And you’re not one of them, alas, your obsession with homosexuality is beyond comprehension, and has nothing do do with being ‘christian’.

    We’ve been here before, haven’t we, Hank?

    We’ve clearly established you as someone who (a) is a closet ex-gay and/or (b) suffering from some kind of mental disorder. I keep forgetting that people like you show suffer from schizophrenia, one of the major symptoms is obsessional fixation on one issue, like you and gay people.

    But worse of all, you’re an insufferable bore. Its the same old homophobic nonsense, isn’t it? Over and over and over again, in an endless loop, unable to break away from this fixation on gay sex…. how awful for you.

    ….I can overlook that your decrepit foolish old fart waiting for death in the swamps of Florida, but being a repetitive bore is utterly unforgivable.

  39. Jess Conrad 22 Jun 2010, 7:51am

    There Is Something Rather Tragic About Hank…More To Be Pitied Than Blamed I Suppose? I’m Afraid Hank Has Become Bankrupt By Investing Too Heavily In His Present Ajenda. ‘Crushing Bore’ Yes…. The Poor Silly Turd!

  40. “There Is Something Rather Tragic About Hank…More To Be Pitied Than Blamed I Suppose?”

    Yes, I agree. I’m not a doctor, but from my understanding of schizophrenia, its seem this is the most likely illness he suffers form given the symptoms he shows here with such repetition:- delusions, fixations, and assigning unusual significance or meaning to normal events or holding fixed false personal beliefs.

    The only other possibility is that Hank here is not as strong as the rest of us, and never addressed the latent homosexuality within him, which now manifests in hate and anger and delusional rational – this is not so improbable no matter how he protests, its been clearly shown before too in scientific studies:

    Psychoanalytic theory holds that homophobia – the fear, anxiety, anger, discomfort and aversion that some ostensibly heterosexual people hold for gay individuals — is the result of repressed homosexual urges that the person is either unaware of or denies. A study appearing in the August 1996 issue of the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, published by the American Psychological Association (APA), provides new empirical evidence that is consistent with that theory. [‘Is Homophobia Associated With Homosexual Arousal?’ by Henry E. Adams, Ph.D., Lester W. Wright, Jr., Ph.D. and Bethany A. Lohr, University of Georgia, in Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Vol. 105, No. 3, pp 440-445. ]

    Either way, these are profound emotional issues for Hank to deal with, and he is to be pitied. But the boring repetitive bit I just can’t stand, that’s just tragic.

  41. Jess Conrad 22 Jun 2010, 10:55am

    Will, Hank Could have Been for years Inside A Mental Institution as a Patient…This seems a Logical Explanation For His Extream Mental Abarations and Un-American Behaviour.

  42. Yo Willie…. You never showed evidence to my question about proving that brilliant Christian philosophers are when you call us “retarded mentally damaged 4 year olds.” Where is proof to
    back up your absurd accusation?

    All you do is deny that Christianity has provided much deep
    religious/philosophical insight into the workings of mankind …moral and ethical foundational beliefs that
    have been proven through advancing civilization principles– the test of time continues to show that our ranks are
    growing with more brilliant writings showing the true essence
    of what evil man is like.

    Your homosexuality is a distorted attempt to give that lifestyle acceptability in a world that comprises 3-4% of your behavior while the vast majority live according to normal/natural sexual behavior. And throughout history it has never been accepted by
    civilized societies…but only sometimes tollerated as a bizarre
    form of a relationship between members of the same sex.

    Even the animal kingdom has shown that homosexuality is an
    uncommon form of behavior and the natural form of living/existing
    among them is for male/female relationships as what nature
    intended…and the occasional homosexual animal behavior is
    remote and not something that will continue to prolong life
    among animals.

    While I can’t come up with indisputed support to show
    that homosexuality is deviant…neither can psychiatry or medicine
    sbow where homosexuality is not a form of confusion of the human
    psyche …outside of some disputed arguments witin the APA, which
    is not in total agreement among its members.

    To give any form of validation to the APA proclamation I’d have
    to know how many of those members advancing your lifestyle are either homosexuals or bisexuals themselves…or have some form of unresolved sexual problems themselves.

    Just as you keep referring that my “obsession with
    sex and/or homosexuality” shows a hidden meaning to my thinking…
    it’s been said that many “psychiatrists go into their profession
    because they have some obession or hidden agenda” for entering
    the area of concentrating on people’s sexual problems — almost
    like enjoying mental vouyerism of their patient’s illnesses.

    The understanding of homosexuality/bisexuality/transgender problems have a long way to go for fuller insight as to what’s
    involved.

  43. Yo Jessie….your brilliant/insightful comments continue to
    amaze me…keep it up….you add much to deeper discussion on
    this site!

  44. “You never showed evidence to my question”

    Proof? Why, you, of course. You believe the end of day is here, the bible is factuality correct in every detail, believe in 6,000 year old earth, oh and pure creationism.

    “Even the animal kingdom has shown that homosexuality is an
    uncommon form of behaviour and the natural form of living/existing”

    Wrong. Again,. Look it up. I’m sick of explaining this to you.

    “To give any form of validation to the APA proclamation I’d have
    to know how many of those members advancing your lifestyle are either homosexuals or bisexuals themselves…or have some form of unresolved sexual problems themselves.”

    Convenient answer, but a fallacy, sorry… donesn’t hide the fact that there is more proof that your a closet homosexual than not. Sorry, I’m going with the proof.

    “it’s been said that many “psychiatrists go into their profession
    because they have some obession or hidden agenda” for entering
    the area of concentrating on people’s sexual problems”

    So, you ARE obsessed with gay sex. We know that already. Thanks for clarifying. Hate being called a queer, do you?

    Now, lets ignore your little rant of foolishness and try address your schizophrenia. Have you seen a doctor yet?

  45. Jess Conrad 22 Jun 2010, 12:42pm

    WHAT, WHAT, WHAT YO-HANKY-PANKY. WE ALL OF US HERE KNOW YOU YEARN TO HAVE RAMPANT-SEX WITH ONE OF THE GOOD-LOOKING GUYS HERE SO WHY YOU BEATING ABOUT THE BUSH….JUST OUT WITH IT YO-HANK YOU WANT SEX SO VERY DESPERATELY WITH ANOTHER MAN…WHY HIDE THE TRUTH..YO-HANKY DEAREST. NOW DEEP-THROAT WOULD INTEREST YOU YO-HANKY-PANKY. COCK RIGHT DOWN YOUR THROAT…YES-YES??

  46. Hey Willie…show me where I’m wrong saying….”Even the animal kingdom has shown that homosexuality is an uncommon form of behavior and the natural form of living/existing”

    Outside of some rare cases of homosexual animal behavior….the majority of the animal kingdom follows heterosexual behavior.

    Or maybe the homosexual urge in mankind has found turned to some form of rationality where they can identify with perverse animal behavior — which I can see why you’re trying to justify your thinking. (Very odd and abnormal).

    Also Willie….You don’t have to argue with me about rampant homosexual animal behavior, just SHOW ME the site for your PROOF and I’ll see if you have any validity to your comment.

    Willie…I said…, “it’s been said that many “psychiatrists go into their profession because they have some obsession or hidden agenda” for entering the area of concentrating on people’s sexual problems”

    YOUR COMMENT:…”Convenient answer, but a fallacy, sorry… donesn’t hide the fact that there is more proof that your a closet homosexual than not. Sorry, I’m going with the proof.
    So, you ARE obsessed with gay sex. We know that already. Thanks for clarifying. Hate being called a queer, do you?

    MY COMMENT :I guess your expert psychological qualifications permit you to make such a diagnosis about me….where did you get your degree or education to make psychological evaluations simply by observing/analyzing one’s written comments….perhaps you’re psychic as well?

    MY COMMENT: With all your illogical arguments, it almost sounds like you’re permitting me to be in the same general category as psychiatrists who are obsessed with sexuality….I guess that gives me some leeway and grounds to let me express myself just as those psychiatrists who love looking into sexual problems…ERGO.. I’m entitled to my “voyeuristic comments on homosexuality.”..just as they are…. except they get paid big $$$ for getting turned on from their patients… while I just like goading you on. Or do you consider THEM as well as ME to
    be closet-homosexuals?

    Your deft dodging my deeper questions is a real talent that you
    display….but a sorry example of giving me proof rather than
    simple opinions.

  47. “Even the animal kingdom has shown that homosexuality is an uncommon form of behavior and the natural form of living/existing”

    Hey “Hankie”…. my, oh, my, its like talking to a moron with you. Are you that stupid you can’t investigate yourself? Can’t read? Cut’n’paste form your “christian” nut sites too difficult?

    Read this:

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/06/090616122106.htm

    Also, the Bonobo, which has a matriarchal society, unusual amongst apes, is a fully bisexual species—both males and females engage in heterosexual and homosexual behaviour, being noted for female-female homosexuality in particular. About 60% of all sexual activity in this species is between two or more females. While the homosexual bonding system in Bonobos represents the highest frequency of homosexuality known in any species, homosexuality has been reported for all great apes (a group which includes humans), as well as a number of other primate species.

    Bonobo are very closely genetically related to humans and the closest in evolutionary terms.

    [Frans B. M. de Waal (March 1995). “Bonobo Sex and Society”. Scientific American. pp. 82–88. http://songweaver.com/info/bonobos.html. Retrieved 2006-07-17.]

    And there you have it. Scientific proof. Undeniable evidence. Empiricism.

    But then I forgot, you don’t “believe” in evolution, do you? Like it’s a choice or something (and that’s laughable!)

    So basically all scientific knowledge is wasted on you, you are not educated or open minded enough to even try understand it. How awful that must be for you. Perhaps its why you wont seek treatment for your mental conditions? Why are you so afraid, Hank, of the world around you? We’re back to the schizophrenia, aren’t we? Occam’s razor.

    “I guess your expert psychological qualifications permit you to make such a diagnosis about me”

    Yes. More then you are. You’re blind to your own symptoms. Again Occam’s razor. Your symptoms fit the symptoms of schizophrenia perfectly, as they do the “closet” repressed ex-gay. Either way, you’re damaged good, my friend.

    So, lest move away from this nonsense you talk about, I run circles around you every time, and its embarrassing for you I’m sure. Lets focus on your hate of homosexuals. Is it clost homosexuality? Very likely. Or is it schizophrenia? You obsession with global conspiracies and “agenda” indicates a strong possibility. May both? You do know its not normal to obsess on gay sex, don’t you? So why do you do it?

    You explain.

    I’m amazed you don’t simply top yourself, you’re old and damaged.

  48. Jess Conrad 22 Jun 2010, 3:56pm

    WILL, I WOULD IGNOR THE CRETIN HANK…SHE’s A WASTE OF OUR PINK SPACE, THE SILLY COW!

  49. Hey Will….you say “Bonobo are very closely genetically related to humans and the closest in evolutionary terms”

    So…what exactly does that supposed to mean….the closeness of genetic relationships leaves much to be answered. You may think you came from a form of ape…but as shown below, there’s a vast difference between animals and humans. Perhaps homosexuals get their validation by showing they’re definitely related to the Bonobo species…but as an advanced and more intellectually defined being, Christians know they are humans…distinctly and dramatically different from any animal species.

    Please argue with the differences noted below. If you still think you’re more related to a Bonobo community….you’re welcome to thinking it. Please show me the errors in the article.

    Humans Differ from Animals

    1/1/2006
    by Kenneth Samples
    For many people the distinction between human beings and animals has become increasingly blurred. Exposure to the secular, naturalistic worldview–especially in academia–can leave one wondering whether the differences are simply a matter of degree. In this view, mankind leaped to the top of the evolutionary heap by chance events.

    However, philosophers have identified many ways in which human beings differ dramatically from animals. Unique human qualities and traits set man apart from the animals by kind, not just degree. From a Christian worldview perspective, and specifically in light of the imago Dei (see sidebar), one would expect profound differences, including the few that follow.
    1
    Inherent Spirituality
    Human beings have an inherent spiritual and religious nature. The vast majority of people on Earth pursue some form of spiritual or religious truth. Most human beings have deep-seated religious beliefs and engage in intricate religious ritual. Pursuit of God or the transcendental is a defining characteristic of mankind and is evidenced in such common practices as prayer and worship–so much so that some have designated humans as homo religiosus–“religious man.” By contrast, formal atheism is largely inconsistent with the overall history of human nature and practice. Even professed nonbelievers (atheists, skeptics) pursue questions concerning life’s ultimate meaning and purpose and are drawn to whatever they consider to be of ultimate importance and value. Philosopher Harold H. Titus has said that even agnostics and atheists “tend to replace a personal god with an impersonal one–the state, race, some process in nature, or devotion to the search for truth or some other ideal.
    “2
    Man, of all Earth’s creatures, is uniquely cognizant of his imminent death. This recognition brings him personal angst and contemplation of God and the possibility of immortality. The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates (c. 470-399 B.C.) stated, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” It is left for man alone to contemplate what philosophers call “the big questions of life.” Animals, on the other hand, can be very intelligent but show no sign of spirituality or concern with ultimate issues.

    Sophisticated Communication
    Human beings possess unique intellectual, cultural, and communicative abilities. Humans are thinkers, uniquely capable of abstract reasoning, and able to apply the foundational logical principle of noncontradiction (A cannot equal A and equal non-A). Human minds alone develop propositions, formulate arguments, draw inferences, recognize universal principles, and value logical validity, coherence, and truth. Only human beings wonder why the physical universe corresponds to abstract mathematical theorems.

    Humans communicate their conceptual apprehension of truth using complex symbols (language). This language is complex and flexible (verbal or written). Language serves to network humanity and establishes human culture and societal institutions. Humans have a deep need to communicate with each other and they accomplish it through a sophisticated intellectual process. In contrast, animals also communicate (and possess many other amazing abilities) but they do not work with abstractions or ask philosophical questions.

    Time and Truth Consciousness
    Human beings are conscious of time, reality, and truth. They study the past, recognize the present, and anticipate the future. People live their entire lives aware of the constraints of time. Yet human beings also desire to transcend time: they think about living forever. Reflective people wonder whether their perception of reality matches with reality itself. Human beings uniquely pursue truth, leading to the founding and development of philosophy, science, mathematics, logic, the arts, and religious worldviews. What is real (metaphysics), what is true (epistemology), and what is rational (logic) are paramount questions, but again, only for man.

    Although animals can have a keen intuitive sense of concrete time even surpassing that of man (e.g., some animals are more attuned to the changes of seasons), they lack any capacity for abstractions about time. Likewise, animals do seem aware of concrete reality but do not inquire into metaphysical, epistemological, and logical questions.

    Homosexuals have a great deal to examine about their understanding of normal human behavior.

  50. “So…what exactly does that supposed to mean…”

    Now you explain to me your understanding of evolution. Then we can explain how stupid that question is.

    The rest was nonsense, just skimmed over it. Nothing of any intrinsic value in your comments just cut and pasted dribble with no real proof. Rather boring, I’m afraid.

    Lets get back to the key points, shall we, as difficult as that is to someone with schizophrenia (I know an ability to focus on topics other then what you are fixated on is a key symptom of your disease):

    Lets focus on your hate of homosexuals. Is it closet homosexuality? Very likely. Or is it schizophrenia? You obsession with global conspiracies and “agenda” indicates a strong possibility. May both? You do know its not normal to obsess on gay sex, don’t you? So why do you do it? What is the medical evaluation of your fixations and obsessions with gay sex?

  51. Will….when you say ….”You do know its not normal to obsess on gay sex, don’t you? So why do you do it? What is the medical evaluation of your fixations and obsessions with gay sex?

    MY COMMENT: While I don’t obsess on gay sex…you apparently have no comprehensive perspective of what kinds of weird behavior people engage in and why there’s so much interest in studying and trying to understand bizarre human behavior.

    It never amazes me what the human psyche can focus on….not only on gay sex….but so many other strange topics. Please read on because it’s rather humorous and somewhat sad with these people.

    While I cannot understand how a man could be sexually attracted to another man or a woman to another woman to the degree of not seeing that kind of behavior is uncommon and not normal because the majority of mankind views it unnatural. (You people are only 3-5% of the population so why shouldn’t we wonder about you????)

    But going beyond my non-sympathizing homosexual love…you must give me credit for having a curious mind for researching unusual and bizarre behavior – unbelievable how it runs the gambit of mankind’s weirdness…but it’s a fascinating study to read what a person is capable of undertaking during his/her life.

    Here’s an interesting report that show what all a person can get tangled up in – while I’m not into any of his categories…it does show how screwed up a person can get – both homosexuals and heterosexuals.

    Kris Saknussemm, a sex researcher of 20 years, has been studying sexual fetishes his entire career. “Long past the investigation of shoes, pain, vomit and rubbing up against people on the subway,” Saknussemm has made some “delightful anomalies” over the years, as you might imagine. He has published a list on Nerve of his ten favorite fetishes. Did peegasms make the list? Find out after the jump!

    1. Catoptrophilia — Unusual titillation in the presence of mirrors.
    Paris Hilton comes to mind here, but Saknussemm explains that this fetish is a bit more complicated that being in love with one’s self or appearance. He says people who are into this fetish are most excited by “the perception of a kind of Other — a psychic double or doppelganger” — basically, the idea of having sex with a twin of sorts. Um, pass!

    2. Macrophilia — The attraction to giants, especially domination by giant women.
    Some Frisky readers might be pleased by this fetish. Or not. Do people enjoy being fetishized?

    3. Pogonophilia — The fixation on bearded men.
    I blame the hipsters for this one, though who can resist a bearded John Krasinski in this summer’s “Away We Go”?

    4. Chremastistophilia — Excitement at being robbed or held up.
    I have to quote Saknussemm’s entire explanation of this one because it’s just too good not to. He writes:
    I’ve met several chremastistophiles, all of whom had been arrested on petty charges at some point in their lives — drug possession, minor theft, etc. All expressed a strong libido, but also a climax dysfunction. They got aroused, they just didn’t get off easily.
    What magical thing finally provided that long-awaited release? The experience of being taken advantage of — which is different from out-and-out assault. It’s a variation on biastophilia, the perverse attraction to being raped, but the key distinction seems to lie in the impending threat itself. “Give me your wallet and nobody gets hurt” — that kind of thing.

    One British gentleman proudly displayed the scar he received from a knife wound in the course of a mugging — an event which he said led to a spontaneous ejaculation, the most powerful and substantial he’d ever experienced. (While the sight of the knife wound continues to unhinge me.)

    5. Agalmatophilia — The arousal by statues, mannequins, dolls and effigies.
    Have you been to the men’s section of a department store lately? There are some pretty fine mannequins these days. And who doesn’t get just a wee bit lusty at the sight of Michelangelo’s statue of David?

    6. Acrotomophilia/Apotemnophilia — Attraction to amputees and the fascination with being an amputee.
    Fascination with being an amputee? I’d take a knife-point mugging over losing a limb any day.

    7. Formicophilia — Obsession with very small creatures — like insects, for example.

    8. Arachibutyrophilia — Has something to do with peanut butter (lots of it) and an allergy to it, but you’ll have to read Saknussemm’s essay for a full explanation since my brain simply cannot process such things.

    9. Melophilia — The erotic worship of music.
    “Elements of this fetish are be deeply ingrained in our culture and perhaps even our biology. Think of the dance frenzies, the religious convulsions and holy rolling.” Saknussemm says. I say melophilia ought to be a requirement for American citizenship.

    10. Eremophilia — The exceptional arousal within deserted places

    So Will…don’t begrudge me for viewing your gay site….you wouldn’t want to start looking at these other fetish categories,
    now would you?

  53. FloridaHank 22 Jun 2010, 11:13pm

    Sorry for the double posting — had trouble getting it through
    on this site.

  54. Jess Conrad 23 Jun 2010, 7:03am

    HO! HO! HO!…FLORIDA HANK….SHE’S SUCH A CAMP QUEEN!

  55. “While I don’t obsess on gay sex…”

    Yes you do. Don’t lie now. Afraid to answer this? There is no bigger coward than he who cannot be honest to at least himself, is there?

    “You people are only 3-5% of the population so why shouldn’t we wonder about you???”

    Numbers are irrelevant. All humans deserve equality. As you have no scientific proof of what you say, your comments are nothing more then the rantings of an old fool, sorry. This statement as proof of anything is embarrassing. But if you understood evolution, which is a reality (not a belief, like the pile of faeces you come up with), then you wouldn’t make these kind of stupid statements, would you?

    Didn’t bother reading the rest, you’re not answering the questions:-
    – Have you been diagnosed with Schizophrenia?
    FACT: You believe in end of days delusions, global conspiracies, fixation issue, compulsive behaviour – all strong obvious symptoms. Please explain.
    – Are you ex-gay?
    Your lack of empathy towards your fellow man and your fixation of gay people as ones who only engage in sex, not love, is blatant proof of a psychosis. Logically, you are ex-gay, or suppress homosexual feelings which you then cloud over with protestations and references to sex, rather then emotional bonding between two people, sexuality irrelevant. You engage in conversation on gays sites with cut’n’pastes from extremist christian sites with no scientific or logical backing.
    – How have you addressed your fixation with sexual nature?
    FACT: Up to know you are ignoring the signs.
    – Are you a risk to children or sexual predation? Or have you been identified as such, because of this sexual obsession?
    FACT: people who obsess with sexual encounters like you, are much more likely to act on impulses, and offend as paedophiles or rapists.

    “So Will…don’t begrudge me for viewing your gay site…you wouldn’t want to start looking at these other fetish categories,
    now would you?”

    I’m not interested in those other categories they way you obsess about them, didn’t bother reading them, they’re irrelevant to gay people. Again, you have no scientific proof that a gay man cannot love in the way straight people do, you just spout silly theories.

    However, I do have proof that you are suffering form a mental disorder, schizophrenia.

    This is the issue, why YOU come to gay sites. Why you are obsessed with sex and all forms of sex.

    We will not only focus on these issues form now on, the rest of what you say is irrelevant.

    The rest of your dribble is just repetitive cut-and-paste from gormless and insipid religious rightwing websites – of little relevance except to those who believe in global conspiracies and the signs of end of days. i.e. lunatics like you.

    Focus now.

    Answer the questions put to you.

  56. Jess Conrad 23 Jun 2010, 7:16am

    Hank, I was Looking up your Profile on ‘My Pink News’
    Seventy Eight Years Old And You Waste What Little Time You Have Left ‘Rubbing Thighs’ With The People you rather be with..GAYS!..CONGRADULATIONS FLORIDA QUEEN!

  57. LOL! 78????? That old???? I’ve been talking to some schizo nut with one foot, nay two feet, in the grave????? Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!

    Why would I give a flying fcuk if this old fart thinks, he’s nearly dead! Powerless to make any impression on the world on his last legs. Struggling to understand a world that has changed too much for him to comprehend.

    And now I know he’s not ex-gay, but REPSRESSED GAY…. he was reared in an ear where sex, not just gay sex, was a utter taboo. Ergo, the sexual repression. It all makes perfect sense. Its no wonder he doesn’t understand evolution, he never got educated! Probably left school at 4 to work on a tobacco plantation or something and was beaten half to death in some right wing Sunday School.

    Ah, Jess, you’ve made my day.

    Sorry, Hank, you’re light years behind me…. an bitter old fart with noting better to do with his time but rant bible-bashing nonsense on a gay site. I’m embarrassed for you, you’d think you’d have more dignity at your age…. I know I certainly will.

  58. Jess Conrad 23 Jun 2010, 7:47am

    WILL…YOU GOT IT RIGHT THERE MY FRIEND!! THE SILLY OLD SCHIZO FLORIDA HANK THE QUEEN OF FAIRFIELD BEACH!

  59. FloridaHank 23 Jun 2010, 5:47pm

    Hey Willie….and Jessie….you people are so filled with anger, frustration, and self-hate that it comes out of your writings in every way.

    I do feel sorry for guys like you and for homosexuals in general – it has to be a world filled with unhappiness and lack of satisfaction. There’s something missing in your psychological makeup and you can’t seem to find a way to change it towards the normalcy of heterosexuality.

    While you may get some bitter-sweet affirmation from the APA’s changing of their evaluation– stating that homosexuality is now an acceptable lifestyle – I do question those psychiatrists who voted to make the change from deviant to valid – maybe many of them are “closet-gays” who need to affirm their own feelings and behavior. What about those people who focus on gays? – think maybe they have hidden sexual feelings they’re repressing?

    But anyway, Willie…Jessie…whenever you get lonely for a new partner you can go back to your Bonobo relatives and find someone who acts in a way you find acceptable. (Oh…that’s a bit nasty).

    People like you two live in a sheltered world – you have no idea that man is made with a soul and has greater expectations of a life beyond these earthly 80+ years. You deny the vast storage of knowledge and history that Christianity and Jewry has provided to mankind for over 4,000 years – your only standard is based on non-eternal principles – you’re only a step or two above the animal kingdom in your thinking, which comes out in your frustrated, angry comments.

    Sleep well!

  60. “Hey Willie….and Jessie….you people are so filled with anger, frustration, and self-hate that it comes out of your writings in every way.”

    LOL! Ah, if only you knew the truth. Nothing like approaching death to make one turn bitter against reality, eh, Hankie?

    Well, lets look at that statement, shall we? I believe what you’re doing here is projecting. For your old and feeble brain, its when a person (i.e. you) projects their own senses on another with the purpose of deflecting the attention to those same feelings, or to appropriate blame because of shame.

    Either way, its a an example of your diseased state of your mind, Hankie, and the fact my last posting rattled your geriatric cage delights me to no end, it really, really does!!!!! HA! HA! You’re so rudimentary and without any semblance of intellect, you can’t help but react in a petty and venomous way when someone shows you up as the ageing old fool you are…. what I’m genuinely surprise at is given you make a fool out of yourself in here so often, you’d think you’d be used to it by now. Oh, well. Obviously not, eh, Hanklie?

    “I do feel sorry for guys like you and for homosexuals in general”

    I don’t. I have a marvellous life… one with a good 60 years to go too with my loving partner! Jealous?

    But as you have proven to be so lacking in understanding of even the most basic concepts, I assume you’ll never understand that. But who really cares, eh? Not me!

    “What about those people who focus on gays? – think maybe they have hidden sexual feelings they’re repressing?”

    You should know, its obvious now you’re one of them…. what’s wrong Hankie, didn’t the gay boys want to “play” with a deformed albino like you?

    “you’re only a step or two above the animal kingdom in your thinking, which comes out in your frustrated, angry comments.”

    This is called projecting. Please refer to above for explanation. And it make me truly happy inside to see you spit bile like a cantankerous old hate monger that you are…. it means I speak the truth. And you know it. And that gets to you.

    Now before you take your meds, so YOU can sleep well, lets revisit some facts and likely causes, shall we?

    1. Constantly visiting gay websites.
    REASON: Normal well balanced 78 year old do NOT visits gay websites, as they have no need to. You do, Hankie, under the ridiculous and preposterous cover of doing “investigating”. Who are you kidding, mate???? We’re not all as uneducated as you, you’re a queer that hates to admit it. Its blatantly obvious.

    2. Fixation with gay sex, and extreme forms of sexual behaviour.
    REASON: Logically this stems from a fixation on what was and is denied to you, or you deny to yourself, combined with self esteem issues. Sexual preoccupation takes up tremendous amounts of energy, leading to a pattern of behaviour to titillate. i.e. gay sites When the acting out happens, there is a denial of feelings usually followed by despair and shame or a feeling of hopelessness and confusion [Richard Irons, M. D. and Jennifer P. Schneider, M.D., Ph.D., “Differential Diagnosis of Addictive Sexual Disorders Using the DSM-IV,” Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity 1996, Volume 3, pp 7-21, 1996.]

    3. Lack of scientific knowledge.
    REASON: Severe lack of education and understanding leading to a false belief in creationism, and a narrow minded denial of those who DO understand science. Probably developmentally challenged, or special needs that wasn’t identified in earlier life.

    4. Belief in conspiracies, world order theories, “end of days” scenario, biblical doomsdays, “gay agendas”, moral decay, etc.
    REASON: One word – Schizophrenia.

    5. Bursts of uncontrollable and undirected anger against gay people, talking the form of projection, or ignoring ones own mental state.
    REASON: Members of disliked minority groups are often stereotyped as representing a danger to the majority’s most vulnerable members. For example, Jews in the Middle Ages were accused of murdering Christian babies in ritual sacrifices. Black men in the United States were often lynched after being falsely accused of raping White women. What you do not understand Hankie, you demonise, like a frightened little child, or a geriatric suffering form senility or encroaching dementia… and given your 78, well, you know which one I would think is more likely…

    There you have it Hankie, you in a nutshell. You keep thinking that we all suffering an unhappy…. it wont change my brilliant life! And it wont save you from the grave either! And I will be around for a lot longer after you’re gone, living in a world of tolerance and acceptance, where I can marry my partner and be loved…. when your kind are dust and memories. Like it or not, that’s reality, Hankie!

    “Sleep Well”

    LOL

  61. FloridaHank 24 Jun 2010, 2:04am

    Hey Willie….I totally disagree with your projection of me and my world on life’s deepest meaning. You like to confuse the deeper issue by throwing around words like…projection…diseased mind…repressed sexual feelings…fixation…sexual preoccupation…lack of scientific knowledge…schizophrenia…etc. But basically, you use typical tactics to show your ignorance of who I am.

    First of all, you have no understanding of what you’re missing by living a materialistic, earthly, temporal life. Your basic drive is pleasure-satisfying with a very limited view of the totality of a meaningful life.

    You don’t have any concept that there are studies showing there’s a significant link between a person’s spirituality and their overall health.

    A recent study in the journal “Family Medicine” showed that …”Those who had a some sort of spiritual practice were discovered to have not only better overall health but also a higher recovery rate for debilitating diseases.”
    ….“This study combined with those that have proven the beneficial effects of prayer go a long ways toward showing that our spiritual lives play a significant part in our overall health. Those without are more likely to succumb to fatal illnesses and they are more likely to suffer ill health in general. “

    I’m certain that as more scientists and researchers delve into this type of study we’ll see that a healthy person does indeed accept that he is vastly more than just a physical being controlled by simple “mechanics of bodily functions and desires.” It will show that he has an inherent need for connecting to a “higher being” .

    So Willie…my life is a fuller, more satisfying and more meaningful life…not like many homosexuals who simply live a life that truly has no deep purpose. It’s been shown that one of the primary benefits of a spiritual life is “meaning.” But you Willie live a “minimal ” life – afraid to go beyond your limited outlook – poor, lost soul.

    A lack of meaning is what causes many homosexuals to have serious problems in this life… many times leading to suicides… depression… and overall daily stress. They realize that something is foundationally wrong with them…but they don’t know or want to make the necessary change. You people simply throw around words like “closet gays” for those of us who see your world as is truly is and try to show you your wrong living and thinking.

    The will to live meaningfully is our greatest foundation for a healthy and purposeful life. But this life needs to be guided by a spiritually directed connection with God, love, beauty, the universe and so many other principles that the Holy Bible lays forth simply, clearly and deeply. These universal truths have been accepted by millions of great and brilliant people throughout history (people who you stupidly call 4-grade morons…or whatever term you used) That again showed your limited mind in understanding the greater things in life!

    But people like you and Jessie…live with a closed mind and fear entering an arena that you see as threatening to your belief system –

    Willie…you and Jessie will live a life that has left out one of the most important ingredients to knowing what it is to be a full human being. Again…I do feel sorry for your shrunken world view – you’re missing the most meaningful part of a full life and you don’t even realize it.

  62. “First of all, you have no understanding of what you’re missing by living a materialistic, earthly, temporal life”

    You’re a bigger fool than I think you are if you believe that.

    “So Willie…my life is a fuller, more satisfying and more meaningful life…not like many homosexuals who simply live a life that truly has no deep purpose.”

    LOL! Yeah right. I think we’ve already identified beyond any doubt how less then “full” your life is.

    I didn’t bother reading the rest, what you usually write when you’ve been proven to be a fool is akin to the demented scribblings of a zealous 16 year old girl, full of puerile insults and “god will get you” nonsense. I find it dull and tedious, so just skimmed past it really.

    I think we have established without any doubt your true nature.

    How embarrassing and frightening this must be all for you, sitting in your death bed, watching the world change out of the realm of your comprehension. Mind obsessed with little “dirty” images of sexual encounters that you never had but wanted oh so much.

    I pity you enormously.

    I’m embarrassed for you.

    And how tragic and pitiful your existence has become, culminating in a sea of confusion and fevered beliefs in thinking you are (1) mentally healthy and (2) wrath of god will avenge you against everyone your deformities and over zealous beliefs.

    But ultimately, you’re pathetic. A sad, lonely old fool with delusions of greatness. Whether you want to admit it or not, I know its true, and I believe you do too.

    And here’s another piece of truth for you:- you might think the world is going to rise up with “god fearing people” like you, but in reality, your a very small minority. Smaller a group than we are. Oh, yes there are many Christians, but 99.99% of them are not like you, or ever will be. They are healthy, well balanced and normal individuals. This is why you are losing the fight, and seen as demented fascists. This is why are winning out rights.

    And the proof? Gay marriage and equality in 7 (last year it was 5) EU counties! And the rest have or planning civil partnerships! Equality legislation in EVERY EU country. Even in America, your so called right wing victories are pyrrhic and fleeting, while ours are gaining momentum. You call this an “agenda”, as a paranoid schizophrenic who is used to swallowing lies would, but in reality its civil liberties winning over your fascism.

    And we are winning. Plain and simple.

    One last thought Hank, know this: I am laughing at you. I laugh at your posts. I laugh at your vain attempts to make yourself feel that one be less the pathetic fools you really are. I laugh at your lack of knowledge. I laugh at your lack of with and finesse. I laugh at your powerlessness.

    Remember this when you take your last breath:- nothing you have done or can do will make one bit a difference to my life with my partner, my equality, or my ever growing rights. And I will be laughing at people like you for a very, very long time.

    Enjoy the swamps, Hankie.

  63. FloridaHank 24 Jun 2010, 5:16pm

    Yo Willie….when you said….”I didn’t bother reading the rest, what you usually write when you’ve been proven to be a fool.” That’s a form in insanity when you deny things before actually knowing what is said.

    But I realize that homosexuality has a way of distorting one’s capacity to comprehend reality, and you’re a fine example of someone who’s already been reduced to acting/behaving/accepting the animal level of life – the Bonobo in you is alive and well.

    You deny all the historical facts of Christianity and Jewry advances – but then when you think like an animal, your capacity is very limited to understand the greater ideas of an intelligent person. Why don’t you broaden your scope of historical knowledge
    and you’ll find it’s an exciting, challenging world.

    I do believe you’re on the verge of being a totally demented person – denying anything that seems to oppose your way of life.

    Homosexuality will eventually fade away when all the “new excitement” of acting in a bizarre fashion loses its attraction to those unhappy people who are living a confused life – not knowing that a male/female relationship is normal and anything outside that is abnormal.

    You are a truly bitter person Willie….and I feel very sorry for you.

    But the Bible says, “God still loves you,” so find some comfort in that!!

  64. Jess Conrad 24 Jun 2010, 7:34pm

    FLORIDA HANK…GET LOST YOU “OLD” STUPID FART!

  65. “I do believe you’re on the verge of being a totally demented person – denying anything that seems to oppose your way of life.”

    LOL! Hilarious! (Still laughing at you)

    What I deny are narrow minded, uneducated, demented old fools like you. Do you feel at a loss becuase you haev the edcuation of a turnip?

    Anyway, we’ve already ascertained you’re on the losing side.

    “Homosexuality will eventually fade away”

    We were always here. Denial isn’t going to change that one little bit. And I’ll be here long, long after you go… which is overdue I should say.

    You’re really pathetic Hank, and I mean that with all my heart. Run along now and die, you stupid old fool, you’re wasting valuable oxygen that someone normal can use.

  66. Jess Conrad 24 Jun 2010, 8:54pm

    WILL, THE PATHETIC OLD QUEEN HANKY IS ATTEMTING TO THROW OUT INSULTS….THE SIGN OF UTTER DEFEAT!

  67. FloridaHank 24 Jun 2010, 9:20pm

    Jessie and Willie….you are a beautiful pair promoting the
    homosexual lifestyle — bitter, angry and totally unaware of
    the greater things in life.

    I predict that in 10-15 years, the homosexual trend will start
    fading away when men start realizing that women are the missing
    love in their life. So until then….continue in your demented,
    bizarre lifestyle…but remember God loves you and you still have
    time to return to mormalcy…do it before something worse than
    AIDS comes into your lives.

  68. Yeah, yeah, yeah…. more pedantic and hollow threats. Predict what you want, you wont be around to see it, you doddering old bigot.

    I am delight, absolutely delight, that our equality upsets you so. You have no idea how I am laughing at your impotence.

  69. Poor hank – out smarted and out classed once again. Its becoming such a regular occurrence on this site he must enjoy been humiliated. That or hes a freakin idiot. both work.

    Jay,
    It’s self-hate and utter fraustration with QUEEN HANK. He would be better off taking a long walk off a short peir!

  71. “It’s self-hate and utter fraustration with QUEEN HANK. He would be better off taking a long walk off a short peir!”

    Frustrated is right…. what a sad old bigot he is. Sitting here with his sordid dirty mind thinking of all the filthy sex other are having. He must have flushed his dignity down the toilet with his brains. Did I mention he’s some kind of albino? He told us that once. You’d think he of all people would understand social prejudices, but no, he’s turned that anger inside and now you have the old goat ranting like a lunatic here….

    …but I love laughing at him, terrible, I know, but really I do. He’s beneath contempt, but so bloody stupid and ignorant, he’s easy amusement :)

  72. FloridaHank 26 Jun 2010, 9:28pm

    Hey Willie…earlier you remarked…..”Its more a deep question as to why do we always end up explaining the blatant obvious to religious nuts like you Hank, like you are retarded mentally damaged 4 year olds?”

    While you may not read my entire comment, I challenge you to refute that Christian believers cannot contribute worthy works in the progress of mankind. In fact, your belief seems to be that only non-Christians have the capacity, talent, and intellect to offer anything worthwhile to history – everything associated with Christianity is mythical and nonsense.

    PLEASE REFUTE any worthiness that the following Christian-believing people contributed to mankind.

    Willie… I believe you have enough intelligence to answer my challenge….but I don’t expect anything significant to come from Jessie…who I believe falls in the “nitwit” category. But you Willie…please destroy my belief that Christianity has contributed nothing positive throughout history and that we all are “4th grade mentally damaged human beings.”

    I await how you will intellectually destroy all the below contributions.

    Rembrandt Harmensz Van Rijn
    Dutch painter of the soul
    “He paints with] the greatest and most natural emotion.”
    — a description of Rembrandt’s style
    The Dutch artists of Rembrandt’s day gained respect painting landscapes, still lifes, and scenes glorifying ordinary life. But these subjects never held much interest for Rembrandt, who was captivated by the moving Bible stories his mother used to read to him. His contemporaries painted from the Bible, too, but not with the passion of Rembrandt, who remains famous for capturing the characters’ emotions and involving his viewers in the stories.
    The following year, Rembrandt died, leaving behind only one daughter, 650 paintings, 280 etchings, and 1,400 drawings. Among his last works is his one of his most famous, The Return of the Prodigal Son, which depicts the opulent and sinful sinner returning home to the presence of his father.

    T.S. Eliot
    Modernist poet The only hope, or else despair
    Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre—
    To be redeemed from fire by fire.”
    The man who wrote the most despairing poem of the twentieth century is today mostly remembered as the author of doggerel verse made popular in the hit musical Cats. Besides his poetry (the serious, the light, and the profoundly Christian), he produced literary criticism and drama so fine he was awarded the 1948 Nobel Prize for Literature and the British Order of Merit.

    In The Idea of a Christian Society (1939), as well as other works, Eliot argued that the humanist attempt to form a non-Christian, “rational” civilization was doomed. “The experiment will fail,” he wrote, “but we must be very patient in awaiting its collapse; meanwhile redeeming the time: so that the Faith may be preserved alive through the dark ages before us; to renew and rebuild civilization, and save the world from suicide.”
    He didn’t believe society should be ruled by the church, only by Christian principles, with Christians being “the conscious mind and the conscience of the nation.”

    Nicholas Copernicus
    Revolutionary astronomer
    “[It is my] loving duty to seek the truth in all things, in so far as God has granted that to human reason.”
    “The two great turning points of the Reformation age, the Lutheran and the Copernican, seem to have brought mankind nothing but humiliation,” wrote historian Heiko Oberman. “First man is robbed of his power over himself, and then he is pushed to the periphery of creation.”

    In contrast to Luther, however, Nicholas Copernicus was not one to make bold, public gesture; instead he spent his life in relative quiet, hesitant to publish his revolutionary views until his very last days. And yet Copernicus, as much as Luther, revolutionized how Europeans thought of themselves, their world, and their God

    It wasn’t until Galileo (1564–1642) that Copernicus’s ideas were seen for what they were—a revolution in how humankind conceived of itself. For some this implied that de-centered earth was an insignificant speck to a distant God; others, though, marveled that the creator of a now infinite universe would lavish such attention on a planet that seemed to stand at the periphery of all creation.

    Geoffrey Chaucer
    Medieval England’s greatest storyteller
    Now I beg all those that listen to this little treatise [Canterbury Tales], or read it, that if there be anything in it that pleases them, they thank our Lord Jesus Christ for it, from whom proceeds all understanding and goodness.”

    Blaise Pascal
    Scientific and spiritual prodigy
    “The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know at all.”
    “Who needs God? Man can make it on his own.” So claimed Reason, the philosophy that captured the imagination of seventeenth-century France. Its champions, Voltaire and Descartes, among others, tried to fashion a worldview ruled completely by reason.
    French mathematician and physicist Blaise Pascal, though raised in the heyday of Enlightenment thought, found reason inadequate: “Reason’s last step is the recognition that there are an infinite number of things which are beyond it.” He concluded, “The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know at all”—a statement that soon became the chief critique of rationalism and the starting point for a defense of the Christian faith that still influences people today.

    He had a passion for Christ and his greatest works are not only masterpieces of French prose but sterling defenses of the Christian faith.

    Les Provinciales, 18 essays regarded as brilliant irony and satire, attacked the Jesuits and defended Jansenists’ demand for a return to morality and Augustine’s belief in divine grace. The Catholic church placed Les Provinciales on the Index, condemning it but failing to quell the controversy it stirred.

    David Livingstone
    “[I am] serving Christ when shooting a buffalo for my men or taking an observation, [even if some] will consider it not sufficiently or even at all missionary.”

    With four theatrical words, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?”—words journalist Henry Morton Stanley rehearsed in advance—David Livingstone became immortal. Stanley stayed with Livingstone for five months and then went off to England to write his bestseller, How I Found Livingstone. Livingstone, in the meantime, got lost again—in a swamp literally up to his neck. Within a year and a half, he died in a mud hut, kneeling beside his cot in prayer.

    For 30 years his life was spent in an unwearied effort to evangelize the native races, to explore the undiscovered secrets, and to abolish the slave trade.” He was Mother Teresa, Neil Armstrong, and Abraham Lincoln rolled into one.

    Joan of Arc
    Teenage war hero with visions. “If I were to say that God sent me, I shall be condemned, but God really did send me.”

    She has been called a saint, a heretic, and “a diamond among pebbles.” But who was this illiterate French peasant girl, who in 15 months changed the history of western Europe and became, according to one historian, “the most widely known of all medieval women”?

    It would be 25 years before a church commission overturned the charges against her and declared her innocent. In 1920 Joan—remembered for her heroism and devotion far more than her military and political conquests—was canonized a saint by the Roman Catholic Church.

    THE ROMAN CATHOLIC PAEDOPHILE ASSOSIATION WILL CANNONIZE ANYONE HANKY-PANKY OR AINT YOU HEARD YOU OLD GOAT!

  74. FloridaHank 27 Jun 2010, 7:12pm

    Hey Jessie…why don’t you apply for RC cannonization — you’d
    probably qualify.

  75. “I challenge you to refute that Christian believers cannot contribute worthy works in the progress of mankind.”

    Irrelevant. I am not disputing that. I am saying you are an ill-informed bigot. Christian history has nothing to do it that. Ergo, as you are a bigot, you are not christian.

    Anyone who cannot understand even the basic irrefutable evidence of evolution is not capable of discussing anything of credence.

    Cut and pastes from hate filled websites is not proof of anything relevant, just that:- a cut and paste.

    Besides, you beliefs are not christian, they are psychotic.

    And your views are equally irrelevant.

  76. Jess Conrad 28 Jun 2010, 12:34pm

    Will, You Waste Your Breath On Such A ‘ONE FLEW OVER THE COOKOO’S NEST’ LOON…Thank God There Are Some Sane People In Florida, Hnky-Panky Is Un-American!

  77. Jess, of course you are right, but people like Hank need to be slapped back at every turn and shown up for the demented idiots they are. I want others to see the futility of superstitious nonsense like this and how fools like Hank cannot be allowed to go back to the old days of legalised discrimination against anyone that disagreed that “god is talking to them and tell them to hate others” rubbish.

    I hold no hope for Hank, he’s wasting oxygen by prolonging his pathetic life, he has neither the ability or the incentive to learn beyond his 1940’s limited education, and the more he writes in here, the more he shows himself up to be an uneducated moron. Death is the only thing that can cure his ignorance…. thankfully not long away now.

    People like Hank offend me, and offend all intelligent people. They lack compassion, understanding and discredit the term “Christian”. Thankfully all they can do is come on to gay sites and bluster, an illicit my laughter. He’s utterly, utterly impotent – he knows it, I know it and everyone here knows it, and his growing anger and infantile insults at that really warms me enormously.

  78. FloridaHank 28 Jun 2010, 10:03pm

    Hey Willie…you sidestepped my question:

    “I challenge you to refute that Christian believers contribute worthy works in the progress of mankind.”….

    YOUR COMMENT: “Irrelevant. I am not disputing that. …” (Then what exactly are you saying or not saying?)

    MY COMMENT: OK…Willie….if you’re not disputing that….can you actually name 3 Christian people…or 3 Christian-backed movements or works that have benefitted mankind….I know you’ll say that’s “irrelevant” but I honestly believe your lifestyle doesn’t permit you to psychologically or intellectually acknowledge that anything that’s based on Christianity is worthy of positive acceptance or recognition.

    (You see that’s where we differ fundamentally…you have a closed mind and cannot consider a world view that encompasses intellectual, physical, and SPIRITUAL concepts)

    I on the other hand am not afraid to acknowledge that many atheists have done momentous deeds that changed world history….who have contributed a degree of intellectual understanding of mankind, even though I don’t agree with them, such as: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Trotsky, Lenin, Freud, Russell, Darwin….people who have presented ideas, philosophies, schools of thought, etc. that had an impact throughout history – though many other great thinkers/philosophers have rejected those views.

    YOUR COMMENT: “I am saying you are an ill-informed bigot. Christian history has nothing to do it that. Ergo, as you are a bigot, you are not christian.

    Besides, you beliefs are not christian, they are psychotic.

    Dictionary definition taken verbatim:
    Webster’s New World– Main Entry: big·ot
    Function: noun
    Etymology: French, hypocrite, bigot
    Date: 1660

    …a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

    MY COMMENT: WILLIE….with this definition…you also are a bigot. You intolerantly hold your opinions and prejudices and have hate and have no tolerance for Christians…the Holy Bible….archeological findings that substantiate/validate writings of historical Jewry or Christianity facts … I could add other bigoted things you hold. but you get my meaning.

    I on the other hand “do not hate homosexuals”….I pity you and feel sorry for you and hope that you will come to an understanding of finding and accepting “the truth of the Bible that you hate so much,” before it’s too late in your life.

    YOUR COMMENT: You also say “… people like Hank need to be slapped back at every turn and shown up for the demented idiots they are. I want others to see the futility of superstitious nonsense….”

    MY COMMENT: Willie….are the following also “demented idiots….filled with superstitious nonsense? Rembrandt….T.S. Eliot…Nicholas Copernicus…Geoffrey Chaucer… Blaise Pascal…David Livingstone…plus hundreds of other outstanding believers in Christian principles ?

    Willie….you show intelligent shortcomings when you reject valuable Christian additions to man’s history and advancement
    based simply on your ignorance or mental incapcity.

  79. “Hey Willie…you sidestepped my question”

    Can’t you read? You, and your questions, are irrelevant to your bigotry. You need to address the questions put to you, not the other way around, please like me do not respond to dying old fools with schizophrenia like yourself – I have no need to. his is my world we’re living in, not yours.

    “You intolerantly hold your opinions and prejudices and have hate and have no tolerance for Christians”

    No, I abhor ignorance and people who foster hate and malice to make their futile little lives feel that one bit less pathetic than they actually are. i.e. you.

    Besides, you’re not a christian. We’ve established that already. Bigots cannot christians, by the very definition of christian. Ergo, YOU are NOT a christian.

    The rest was your usual brand of superstitious rubbish, all rather silly and petty, without any real substance.

    Now, lets address some real issue here:-

    We know you have a mental health issue. Its more then probably, no almost 100% likely, that you are some closet case or repressed sexually.

    But these things can be fixed, Hank. Well, not the education part, its too late for that.

    Why don’t you seek help for this, or is it at 78 you are too old to chnage?

    And answer me this, how does an albino like you, who would be so used to social prejudices, end up becoming the hateful and bitter one?

    Is it because it makes you feel better if you do that to others?

    Is it becuase you never received adequate schooling because of how you were treated socially? Ostracised, perhaps?

    Or is it simply a result of your mental health condition.

    Please, enlighten us.

  80. Why does hank always demand that we answer his daft questions but never actually addresses anyone elses questions? beginning to think that youre right will, a bit of an fruit cake thing going on there and thats being kind. You meet a few damaged good on this site, but a 78 year old spouting about how were all ‘deviant’ takes the biscuit – what a basket case. Doesnt the medical profession not see whats wrong with him and lock the old fcuker up?

  81. Jess Conrad 29 Jun 2010, 12:27pm

    Jay,
    The Silly Old Fool Will Have His Cum-Uppance Sooner Or Later. There Is No Fool Like An Old Fool!

  82. spot on jess you hit the nail on the head a fool his is indeed. will is my new champion against the tyranny of a theocracy and the nutty religious types here I love his posts. it just shows how intellect and reason will always trump superstition and hanks embarrassing denial of the proven existence of evolution and genetics is an example of how backward and down right stupid he really is. keep it up will you have my undivided attention and my admiration i’m loving your work mate!

  83. Stop it Jay, you’ll have me blushing! ;-)

    Well, its seems that Hank is disappeared again… he tends to do that when we don’t all jump up and down to support his lunatic religious hate. Then again the old fool might have had this laptop removed by the attendants of the lunatic asylum he’s at for screaming at other patients….

  84. Jess Conrad 1 Jul 2010, 12:14pm

    WILL, IN THAT CASE, A LITTLE SHAKESPEARE FOR DEAR HANK!

    Oh thou that dost inhabit in my breast,
    Leave not the mansion so long tenantless,
    least growing ruinous, the building fall.
    And leave no memory of what it was!

    DO YOU THINK H WILL UNDERSTAND LITERATURE?

  85. “DO YOU THINK H WILL UNDERSTAND LITERATURE?”

    Are you kidding? The old fool can barely write, for heavens sake – schooling in the red-neck states of the US in the 1930’s meant if you could spell ‘cat’, your were considers too smart and schooling was over.

    And Hank is a glowing example of inferior genes mixed with substandard (or absent) education.

    Alas, Jess, reading Shakespearian literature to a dead cat would spark a better chance of being understood than to a deformed bigot like Hank.

  86. Jess Conrad 2 Jul 2010, 12:44pm

    WILL,
    AN Excellent analogy. I regaurg Hank as ‘The Creacher From The Black Lagoon!’

  87. FloridaHank 3 Jul 2010, 12:30pm

    Hey Willie….there are some things that we have to discuss in detail.
    Let’s start with:

    MY COMMENT: “You intolerantly hold your opinions and prejudices and have hate and have no tolerance for Christians”

    YOUR COMMENT: No, I abhor ignorance and people who foster hate and malice to make their futile little lives feel that one bit less pathetic than they actually are. i.e. you

    Webster’s definition of:
    abhor — to regard with extreme repugnance or aversion; detest utterly; loathe; abominate.

    Willie…you think that changing a single word lets you deceive others and covers your true thinking and now your basic feelings of bigotry don’t exist? …What a hypocrite you are – whatever word/words you use, you’re still a bigot and even worse, a hypocrite – things you try to cover with – such a sophomoric attempt to create a new persona – but I see through you and your nonsense. You are totally dishonest in your thinking and with your comments.

    WILLIE….how does abhor differ in your intent/emotion from the feelings of a bigot as defined below:

    “Bigot: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

    WILLIE….It’s obvious that you intolerantly hold your opinions and prejudices and ABHOR ( Willie…. be truthful and say … “you “ hate and have no tolerance for)… Christians…the inspired Holy Bible… Biblical archeological findings that substantiate/validate writings of historical Jewry or Christianity facts.

    How far back with historical archeology findings do you admit have been validated by secular experts? How did we accumulate findings, writings, knowledge of :Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, that had beginnings of 469 B.C. –long before the appearance of Jesus Christ, of whom there are numerous, more recent recording writings in our history.

    Willie….You can substitute or use different words, but your feelings are obvious – they’re bigoted

    YOUR COMMENT: “Besides, you’re not a christian. We’ve established that already. Bigots cannot christians, by the very definition of christian. Ergo, YOU are NOT a christian”

    WILLIE….you haven’t the faintest idea of what a Christian is. Oh you can recite some words or phrases that can be descriptive of a generalization of what the world calls “Christians.”

    But you don’t any sense of what a “true Christian” is. You certainly don’t know my love and devotion to Jesus Christ…his life, death and resurrection…the inspirational truth of the Holy Bible….the living power of the Holy Spirit — who has made me a new creation and taken away the natural sinful desires of unsaved people. You have no concept of the destination of the eternal soul – be it in heaven or hell….these topics are meaningless/unknowable to heathens like you Willie. You simply dismiss them without knowing they exist because they are not a part of normal secular intelligence. .

    Willie…..I say the above statement with the knowledge that when “I also asked….….can you actually name 3 Christian people…or 3 Christian-backed movements or works that have benefitted mankind”

    YOU CANNOT REPLY:. Willie…you have lost the ability to go beyond your tangled thinking – these provable facts have been uncovered and accepted for over 5,000 years of recorded history.

    Again I expect you to say that’s “irrelevant” BUT I totally believe that because of your acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle has caused a psychologically/ intellectually conundrum where you cannot acknowledge anything that’s based on Christianity or anything that even hints of spirituality. Your mental capacity has diminished to where you can only think in terms of material, scientific, worldly subjects

    Homosexuality has never been accepted throughout history as a viable, meaningful lifestyle – and the majority of civilized people had looked at homosexual behavior as an incidental, quirkiness that certain people exhibited – but not a helpful, productive characteristic in the totality of mankind’s progress.

    But know this Willie….God still loves you and is giving you a certain span of life to change and accept the Truth that can make you a new person – do it before it’s too late and you die in your sinful nature.

  88. Jess Conrad 4 Jul 2010, 4:03pm

    HANKY-PANKY,
    BUT KNOW THIS HANKY-PANKY, GOD WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOUR EVIL, WICKED HATE FOR MANKIND. AND YOUR EVIL WICKED HATRED FOR SOMETHING AS NATURAL AS WE ARE. IT IS YOU WHO IS SUB-HUMAN AND SHOULD BE HURRIED TO YOUR GRAVE YOU EPITOMY OF WHAT IS EVIL IN THIS WORLD.

  89. Hank, please stop. You’re making a show of yourself. We have already proven you have a severe mental health condition, and are nothing more then a small minded bigot of <bvery limited understanding. Your comment just shows your fleeting and embarrassing grasp of reality really is. I ignored most of it, of course, its of little relevance to anything.

    You disgust honest decent christians, but you know that already.

    Homosexuality is here to stay, as its always has been, and none of the rubbish you spout will change that reality. Sad, for you, but true. Hence Ireland has passed Civil Partnerships this week – a real victory for the Irish Republic and civil liberties. ANOTHER victory for us over dogmatic and hateful fools like you.

    Now, answer the question put to you: how does an albino like you, who would be so used to social prejudices, end up becoming the hateful and bitter one?

  90. FloridaHank 4 Jul 2010, 7:12pm

    Hey Jessie….where do you get off saying, “AND YOUR EVIL WICKED HATRED FOR SOMETHING AS NATURAL AS WE ARE.”

    I never said I hate homosexuals…I am sorry and pity you…and
    it is not “natural”…it is a deviation from the norm…and has been treated as such throughout history. There has never been
    a society that looked upon homosexuality as “natural or normal.”

    Study your history and you’ll see where the vast majority of
    civilized people lived in man/woman relationships — I also expect
    that this homosexual movement will “run its course” in 15-20 years
    and like all other oddities…will die out and normalcy will
    return to our culture — maybe not in places like Hollywood, but
    that in itself is an abnormal sub-culture.

  91. “it is a deviation from the norm”

    Actually, you and your mental condition are the deviation from the norm. Sorry, but that’s the truth. Crazy old Hank.

    Now answer the question: how does a deformed albino like you, who would be so used to social prejudices, end up becoming the hateful and bitter one?

  92. “There has never been a society that looked upon homosexuality as “natural or normal.”

    LOL! What a typically stupid comment to make Hank, so expected of you. Never been to Europe then? Didn’t they teach you geography or social history (or any history) at the mental asylum you live in? Oh, sorry, I forgot schizophrenics, by their nature, rarely accept reality, do they Hank…. I wouldn’t know, but you can enlighten us, as a prime example of that awful disease.

    LOL! You are consistent at one thing only:- making truly stupid and ill informed statements. And your powerless rants make me smile every time without fail. What’s it like living in a world you can’t understand Hank, where even Christians shun you?

  93. FloridaHank 5 Jul 2010, 2:17am

    Willie…you commented “Never been to Europe then? Didn’t they teach you geography or social history (or any history)”

    MY COMMENT: I still say..”Study your history and you’ll see where the VAST MAJORITY of civilized people lived and
    promoted man/woman relationships”

    It’s still a fact that most of the civilized countries still hold to the standard of man/woman relationships.

    I’m not talking about a certain few European countries
    where they no longer have normal marriage standards…instead they
    live in a “common law” situation without acknowledging the long
    accepted standard of marriage between a man and woman — these
    countries that you refer to are mainly atheistic and heathen –holding only secular beliefs.

    These are countries who have no orthodox religious standards — these countries are atypical and are out of orbit of the vast majority of countries whose citizens still consider homosexuality as being unnatural and not within normal standards of human behavior.

    So Willie….just because some parts of certain countries have reduced their standard of morality and ethical standards, does not mean that homosexuality is considered normal by the majority of their citizens.

  94. FloridaHank 5 Jul 2010, 3:54am

    Willie…you say “You disgust honest decent christians, but you know that already.”

    That shows how little you know about “true Christians.”

    I may be hated by people like you and also by those who are
    not “true Christians” and I offer the following truth>

    “The Church exists in a hostile world. If its members do not reject the philosophies of the world they will reflect them in their lives. If we are friends with the world (its religions, philosophies, psychological systems and practices) then we must seriously ask ourselves why we do not heed Jesus’ words:
    If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you (Jn. 15:18-19).

    So you and others like you and even some deceived “Christians”
    may hate me, but I can live with that because I’m a follower
    of Jesus Christ and live by His Truth….so you can call me any
    stupid name but I realize the psychological turmoil you’re
    trying to work out.

  95. “It’s still a fact that most of the civilized countries still hold to the standard of man/woman relationships.”

    Stupid comment. You never cease to amaze me with your stupidity and lack of historical knowledge. But its irrelevant anyway, reality doesn’t need your beliefs to be in line. No one really cares. You sit there in your swamps and fester, you deformed and demented old fool, a disease will take you from this earth soon enough I’m sure, and I’ll get on with planning my marriage to my partner next year…. HA! Ha!

    And Hank, I know a LOT about Christians…. after all, my superior education compared to your lack of is quite frankly unimaginable to you. Alas, you’re not a true Christian, you are everything a Christian is not:- angry, hateful, discriminatory, small, dogmatic. Nothing you say here will change that reality, in fact quite the opposite. All you have done is convince others, me and everyone else here, that you are in effect an anti-Christian.

    So, you’re not even the Christian you think you are…. how pathetic is that! Just when I thought you couldn’t disappoint me further…. you go and pull a blinder. Well done, Hank.

    And why can you not answer the question put to you? Its the schizophrenia, isn’t it? Prevents you from acknowledging or addressing the truth?

    Do I REALLY need to provide any more proof of your mental illness? No, I don’t think so. We’ve established that without out any shadow of a doubt.q

    In essence, I’m conversing with a mad man… how funny is that?

  96. Hank, you are a some freak and thats saying something given the lunatics we get in here!!!!!!! The world doesnt hate you becuase youre a christian, it hates you becuase you ram stupid notions of what you think are right and wrong down the throats of others and expect to be applauded for your bigotry. As someone here already said, youre offensive to humanity. Its just as well you dont ‘believe’ in evolution, becuase youre living proof that defective genes survive! (although its laughable you think you can chose to believe in evolution given it is scientifically a proven certainty and your adam and eve nonsense is blatantly only a story)

    will, god bless you for still trying to deal with that diseased individual.

  97. Jay, you’re quite right in saying Hank “expects to be applauded for your bigotry”. He can’t help himself, he’s a pathetic being trapped in his own lack of education, ignorance and mental anguish.

    I think its time to address some key issues here about Hank.

    Firstly:- Hank believes that the perceived persecution of, or disagreement with, Christians somehow reflects personally on himself. This is typical of people who suffer from schizophrenia – one of the key symptoms of schizophrenia is an ego centric view of persecution, usually involving grandiose schemes and conspiracies, as well as delusions of doom and disaster that involve themselves as the savour or some other central role. Proof? Hank the “savour” of gay people, and his ridiculous (and insane) belief in a “New World Order” conspiracies.

    I think that Hank’s postings on this site has more then confirmed this state of mind.

    Secondly:- His extremist view are clearly indicative of a damaged mind, which leads to point one above. This damage mind likely stems partially from the fact that he is an albino, and given the backward nature of the US today, let alone back in the 1930’s, no doubt he has suffered considerable persecution. Most people can rise above that and become better people, but not Hank, his mind is already damaged. This leads him to a degree of anger which, in conjunction with a schizophrenic world view, has found a suitable outlet in religion, and especially extreme forms of religion. His belief that he is somehow better then others, namely gay people, and his dismissal of the obvious growing trend to gay rights, undermines this sense of superiority. Hence the denial of reality.

    I think his reluctance to address, and ignoring of, the questions put to him, is clear indication that he does not like to be reminded of his own genetic weakness, as this would undermine the thin-as-ice belief he holds that he has found a group of people to persecute and elevate his own damaged self esteem.

    Thirdly: Obsession with gay people, and their sexual habits. As will all sexual obsessions, is not a “normal” trait. His reluctance to acknowledge this leads to one suspect that Hank is a danger to other, or has been in the past. This sexual obsession is prevalent in paedophiles and people who go on to commit sexual offences against others.

    Fourthly:- Hanks lack of understanding of the world around him leads him to create his one version of history and science to suit his simplistic and warped world view, and to accommodate his prejudicial extremists views. This is no doubt the result of the social prejudices he experienced in the second point above as an albino, probably leading to him being a low achiever in school. This in turn leads him to reject anything he cannot understand, or damages his warped world view, and obsession with homosexuality. Its been proven scientifically that homophobic people are extremely likely to be harbouring homosexual views themselves (Hank’s aggressive reaction this this study was well seen in another thread). Apart form the scientific study, its common sense – it goes back to the original point – its not normal to obsess with gay people, masking it in “religious belief” is very convenient for him, as it allows him to engage in titillation on this site with a good cover story.

    I’m fairly sure we have covered this with some certainty, given the overwhelming evidence Hank himself has himself provided, quite amply.

    Nothing Hank says or protests against will change my mind on this. I’m sure we’re in for a delightful rant at this reality, as I think deep down he is aware of the above on some level.

    I for one look forward to that rant, it will entertain me to no end.

    Hey Willie, Jessie and Jay:

    Earlier you commented: “And why can you not answer the question put to you? Its the schizophrenia, isn’t it? Prevents you from acknowledging or addressing the truth?

    Also. you commented..”The world doesnt hate you becuase youre a christian, it hates you becuase you ram stupid notions of what you think are right and wrong down the throats of others and expect to be applauded for your bigotry. As someone here already said, youre offensive to humanity. Its just as well you;”

    MY RESPONSE: Regarding your insipid and hateful arguments and feelings toward me, I just read the following article on Pinknews today.

    I assume that you believe that 2/3’s of the doctors (noted in this article)… are well-educated, balanced individuals….while the other 1/3 show schizophrenic/deluded thinking and should never be heard by the general public….even by those homosexuals who are unhappy, depressed and desire to hold heterosexual feelings and heterosexual behavior – those who loathe living as homosexuals.

    Your dishonesty and hypocrisy is blatant and would be obvious to all — if you would have the spunk (whiich you don’t have)… to give me your answer to the following:

    Do you have tolerance and an open mind towards those homosexuals who want to reject their homosexual feelings and behavior and desire a change in lifestyle? Or do you deny them the freedom of choice in living their life as they desire…not as they are now feeling and living it?

    RECENT ARTICLE ON YOUR SITE:
    “The annual meeting of the British Medical Association has declared that therapies to ‘cure’ gay people of homosexuality are harmful.

    The body met in Brighton yesterday and more than two-thirds of doctors present backed a call for the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other mental health standard-setting bodies to reject the treatments and ban their use in codes of practice.
    Health departments should also investigate alleged cases of conversion therapy being funded by the NHS, the meeting agreed.
    Research published last year found that a SIXTH of registered British therapist and psychiatrists have attempted to “cure” patients of homosexuality.

    Tom Dolphin, the proposer of the motion and the vice-chair of the BMA’s junior doctors committee, said: “Sexuality is such a fundamental part of who a person is that attempts to change it just result in significant confusion, depression and even suicide.
    “You can’t just wish away same-sex attraction no matter how inconvenient it might be.”

    But Cardiff consultant neurophysiologist Gareth Payne said there was no “gold standard” evidence that conversion therapy did not work and was harmful. He added that it was important to respect the wishes of patients who asked for the therapy.”

    The above is a direct quote, not something I made up with a schizophrenic mind — as you continuously brainlessly state.
    I have my own theory as to why homosexuality is not normal/natural. and while it continues to be displayed in only 3%-4% of the general population and why there’s a wider acceptance by people who have limited understanding of moral, ethical, virtuous standards that once governed our early history but is now on a declining path that’s creating greater social and emotional problems every year for a growing population – not only in the USA, but worldwide.

  99. 3%-4%?

    Another fallacy.

    “Or do you deny them the freedom of choice in living their life as they desire…not as they are now feeling and living it?”

    What’s more interesting is why YOU need to believe this.

    Lets recap: Hank’s obsession with gay people, and their sexual habits. As will all sexual obsessions, is not a “normal” trait. His reluctance to acknowledge this leads to one suspect that Hank is a danger to other, or has been in the past. This sexual obsession is prevalent in paedophiles and people who go on to commit sexual offences against others.

    AND….

    Its been proven scientifically that homophobic people are extremely likely to be harbouring homosexual views themselves (Hank’s aggressive reaction this this study was well seen in another thread). Apart form the scientific study, its common sense – it goes back to the original point – its not normal to obsess with gay people, masking it in “religious belief” is very convenient for him, as it allows him to engage in titillation on this site with a good cover story.

    Lets focus on he facts here, not your desperation to prove your straight.

  100. “Regarding your insipid and hateful arguments and feelings toward me”

    a fool needs to be proven a fool, as many times as it takes

    i agree with will 100 percent on his assessment of you hank and im sure other do too

  101. FloridaHank 5 Jul 2010, 7:24pm

    Willie ….WHY ARE YOU ignorning my question — and PLEASE DON’T
    say it’s irrelevant — because you always say that when you
    can’t answer one of my questions — and I expect you to once
    again say — IT’S IRRELEVANT — that’s simply a fearful response
    on your part Willie…. in reality…you are very transparent!

    Do you have tolerance and an open mind towards those homosexuals who want to reject their homosexual feelings and behavior and desire a change in lifestyle? Or do you deny them the freedom of choice in living their life as they desire…not as they are now feeling and living it?

    It’s a simply question that you and other homosexuals continually
    avoid…it’s because you’re a hypocrite and say one thing but
    believe the opposite. I can see that you’re a deceitful person
    Willie…even though you try to hide behind it by calling me
    schizophrenic….but in reality you actually have a very distorted
    view not only on your life….but on other homosexuals who
    actually dislike their life but are honest enough to admit it and
    want to change. No Willie….you are deceiving your self and
    will say anything to fortify your odd lifestyle.

  102. FloridaHank 5 Jul 2010, 8:07pm

    Hey Willie… you commented….3%-4%? Another fallacy.
    (Please enlighten me with the facts that you believe if I’m so
    wrong)

    MY QUESTION “Or do you deny them the freedom of choice in living their life as they desire…not as they are now feeling and living it?”

    YOUR ANSWER: “What’s more interesting is why YOU need to believe this.”

    Thanks for your “enlightening answer” to my question….it’s much
    what I expected from you Willie.” You’re such a phony and
    disingenuous with your responses. Can’t you do better Willie?

  103. “(Please enlighten me with the facts that you believe if I’m so
    wrong)”

    What on earth make you think someone of my standing and education needs to account to an inerudite old fool like you? Ha! Please! If YOU give figures, YOU need to account for them. The onus is on you to back these up, not me to disprove. But of course this is lost on you, is goes back to my points above with you sense of reality lacking and grasp on science slightly below fleeting.

    As for your other question, why none earth should I answer such a remedial query like that when you refuse to answer questions yourself? The notion is quite frankly laughable.

    When you answer the question put to you, then we can delve in on your obsessional topics. Until then noting you say here has any merit.

    Until then Hank, my opinion of you, remains as always, slightly less than I would hold any esteem for a piece of pond scum that one might scrape off ones shoe.

    THE HANKY-PANKY IRELIGIOUS SNAKE-OIL….THIS CRETIN GETS WORSE!
    Narcissuses Of Imbecility springs to mind too!!

  105. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 2:22am

    Willie you should be a politician the way you dodge questions — answering my questions with your questions. You have a great
    future if you run for political office.

    Here are a few figures on homosexual percentages — so take your
    pick.

    In 1995, a survey (The prevalence of homosexual behavior and attraction in the United States, the United Kingdom and France: Results of national population-based samples – Sell, Wells, and Wypij) reported 6.2, 4.5, and 10.7% of males and 3.6, 2.1, and 3.3% of females in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, respectively, report having had sexual contact with someone of the same sex in the previous 5 years.

    A 1994 study (The Social Organization of Sexuality: Sexual Practices in the United States – Laumann, Gagnon, Michael, Michaels) reported that the incidence rate of homosexual desire for men is 7.7% and 7.5% for women.

    A 1993 study (The Janus Report on Sexual Behavior – Janus and Janus) found 9% of men and 5% of women were involved in frequent or ongoing homosexual experiences.

    A 1990 study (Homosexuality/Heterosexuality by McWhirter, Sanders, and Reinisch) stated 13.95% of males and 4.25% of females had “extensive” or “more than incidental” homosexual experience.

    The Guttmacher Institute study (1993)…found that about 2% of U.S. men ages 20-39 said they had engaged in any same sex experience in the decade preceding the survey.

    The Univ. Of Chicago study (1990) sampled 1,587 adults over 18 years of age on a nationwide basis. The study found that active male and female homosexuals were at most 1.5% of the sample.

    The U.S. Census Bureau studies…since 1988 conducted extensive ongoing surveys of adults to ascertain public knowledge about AIDS…asking “if you are a man who has had sex with another man at some time since 1977, even one time. Only about 2% have ever answered “yes.”

    The Minnesota Adolescent Health Survey (1986-87) concluded from a survey of 36,741 public school students in grades 7-12 found that 0.6% of boys and 0.2% of girls identified themselves as homosexual or mostly homosexual; 0.7% of boys and 0.8% of girls said they were bisexual.

    Also Willie….I’m still waiting for your answer to my question:

    Do you have tolerance and an open mind towards those homosexuals who want to reject their homosexual feelings and behavior and desire a change in lifestyle? Or do you deny them the freedom of choice in living their life as they desire…not as they are now feeling and living it?

    What’s so difficult for giving me an answer? I know what it is,
    but I’d like to hear it from you.

  106. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 2:37am

    Willie… you said, “…my opinion of you, remains as always, slightly less than I would hold any esteem for a piece of pond scum that one might scrape off ones shoe.”

    And you call me hateful….I do believe you have some sort of
    mental deficiency that overtakes your entire thinking when you’re
    faced with difficult questions about your lifestyle.

    But still Willie…God loves you and wants you seek the Truth
    and live according to His principles….do it now before it’s too late and you’re dead — there’s no second chance when you’re in a coffin !!!!

  107. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 3:58am

    Willie….I’ve been studying your condition and I found a medical view that shows that your “irrational hate” is indicative of bipolar disorder.

    All of your comments go far beyond “legitimate dislike” to “irrational hate”

    You’ve gone “beyond the line” , and now at one level, these hateful emotions have become so powerful that anything I say gives you an irrational feeling that in reality doesn’t really make sense — but you have to continue thinking and saying those things to me – maybe instead of your being bipolar you’re showing signs of schizophrenia or another form of mental disorder.

    Even if you didn’t have bipolar , you’d still be thinking that you’re right about ” Hank is schizophrenic” — it’s all about him not me.

    But continuing to rave about me sounds very much like what is seen in bipolar disorder, and there’s a good chance it will diminish if you get treatment for the hateful mood problem.

    If you’ve never seen a therapist, I hope you do get underway on starting treatment. If it ever gets to the point where you’re focusing all your efforts on vilifying anyone who disagrees with you –that you now show, and can’t really recognize your hate as “irrational”, it’s time to go to your local emergency room and explain just that.

    You should probably be admitted to a psych unit, because if your irrational emotions continue, you could do something very dangerous you’d regret for years. As long as you can see that the hate doesn’t make sense, and keep yourself from acting on it, you’re probably safe to continue outpatient treatment.

    Stay safe out there, and God loves you Willie.

  108. “You have a great future”

    I have a great future. Full stop. More then I can say for a dying demented zealot like yourself Hank.

    You basic fundamental grasp of Mathematics is truly appalling. Proof that you only cut and paste but do not actually read what you write.

    6.2, 4.5, and 10.7% of males
    men is 7.7%
    13.95% of males
    9% of men
    1.5% of the sample.

    Are these ranges indicative of a standard deviation of 2-3% to you? LOL!

    You are an utter, utter moron. My god man, you stupidity is just embarrassing!!!!! I suppose when you believe in a 6,000 year old earth, scary “global conspiracies” and talking snakes with Tourette’s giving naked chicks an “apple of doom” as means of creation, one can only really be an idiot. True, eh?

    No a surprise really, you are nothing if not grossly uneducated, that you’ve proven repeatedly.

    “I do believe you have some sort of mental deficiency that overtakes your entire thinking when you’re faced with difficult questions about your lifestyle.”

    Do you think that passing on the same thing I said to you back to me makes you sound clever? Hmmm. What a completely unimaginative and insipid person you are.

    Not very clever. Now, back to your sordid dirty old man fantasies about gay sex. Yummie, you love this talk don’t you Hankie, the chance of a bit of titillation in the old bones….

    As I have said, and this will be the last time I say it, until you answer my questions, I will never address yours. Besides, you have no scientific understanding of that you say, any answer I get back will be an obvious and garish cut and paste from a fringe lunatic site. Hardly inspiring, is it Hank?

    Why did you answer the questions put to you?

    Oh, yes, you’re nuts. Sorry, I almost forgot! LOL!

    See Civil Partnership Bill is going in front of the Irish Senate this week! Almost certain to pass too…. mmmmmm another victory for reason and civil liberties over the dull histrionics of a sexually perverted madman like yourself Hank, I’m, sure you’ll agree.

    Actually, I’m getting tired of this. You’re boring.

  109. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 1:16pm

    Hey Willie…I see you conveniently ignored these studies:

    The Guttmacher Institute study (1993)…found that about 2% of U.S. men ages 20-39 said they had engaged in any same sex experience in the decade preceding the survey.

    The Univ. Of Chicago study (1990) sampled 1,587 adults over 18 years of age on a nationwide basis. The study found that active male and female homosexuals were at most 1.5% of the sample.

    The U.S. Census Bureau studies…since 1988 conducted extensive ongoing surveys of adults to ascertain public knowledge about AIDS…asking “if you are a man who has had sex with another man at some time since 1977, even one time. Only about 2% have ever answered “yes.”

    The Minnesota Adolescent Health Survey (1986-87) concluded from a survey of 36,741 public school students in grades 7-12 found that 0.6% of boys and 0.2% of girls identified themselves as homosexual or mostly homosexual; 0.7% of boys and 0.8% of girls said they were bisexual.

    Why was that?

    I still believe that your “irrational hate” is indicative of
    your bipolar disorder — extreme outbursts of manic episodes
    when dealing with undesireable subjects.
    Yes Willie….the “true you” is obvious when the proper
    stimulus is presented by me.

  110. Believe what you will, it is of no relevance to me. I am certain what’s wrong with you, however.

    Lets recap.

    Firstly:- Hank believes that the perceived persecution of, or disagreement with, Christians somehow reflects personally on himself. This is typical of people who suffer from schizophrenia – one of the key symptoms of schizophrenia is an ego centric view of persecution, usually involving grandiose schemes and conspiracies, as well as delusions of doom and disaster that involve themselves as the savour or some other central role. Proof? Hank the “savour” of gay people, and his ridiculous (and insane) belief in a “New World Order” conspiracies.

    I think that Hank’s postings on this site has more then confirmed this state of mind.

    Secondly:- His extremist view are clearly indicative of a damaged mind, which leads to point one above. This damage mind likely stems partially from the fact that he is an albino, and given the backward nature of the US today, let alone back in the 1930′s, no doubt he has suffered considerable persecution. Most people can rise above that and become better people, but not Hank, his mind is already damaged. This leads him to a degree of anger which, in conjunction with a schizophrenic world view, has found a suitable outlet in religion, and especially extreme forms of religion. His belief that he is somehow better then others, namely gay people, and his dismissal of the obvious growing trend to gay rights, undermines this sense of superiority. Hence the denial of reality.

    I think his reluctance to address, and ignoring of, the questions put to him, is clear indication that he does not like to be reminded of his own genetic weakness, as this would undermine the thin-as-ice belief he holds that he has found a group of people to persecute and elevate his own damaged self esteem.

    Thirdly: Obsession with gay people, and their sexual habits. As will all sexual obsessions, is not a “normal” trait. His reluctance to acknowledge this leads to one suspect that Hank is a danger to other, or has been in the past. This sexual obsession is prevalent in paedophiles and people who go on to commit sexual offences against others.

    Fourthly:- Hanks lack of understanding of the world around him leads him to create his one version of history and science to suit his simplistic and warped world view, and to accommodate his prejudicial extremists views. This is no doubt the result of the social prejudices he experienced in the second point above as an albino, probably leading to him being a low achiever in school. This in turn leads him to reject anything he cannot understand, or damages his warped world view, and obsession with homosexuality. Its been proven scientifically that homophobic people are extremely likely to be harbouring homosexual views themselves (Hank’s aggressive reaction this this study was well seen in another thread). Apart form the scientific study, its common sense – it goes back to the original point – its not normal to obsess with gay people, masking it in “religious belief” is very convenient for him, as it allows him to engage in titillation on this site with a good cover story.

    You inane mutterings have no bearing on the reality of the above. Run along Hankie, you god is waiting on your to die, and hell is waiting for a diseased closet-case deformity like you.

  111. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 1:33pm

    Willie…your earlier comment: “And Hank, I know a LOT about Christians…. after all, my superior education compared to your lack of is quite frankly unimaginable to you.”

    Also…. “What on earth make you think someone of my standing and education needs to account to an inerudite old fool like you?”

    Again, you exhibit a symptom of megalomania — more delusional
    content in every one of your comments.

    You truly are showing more indications that you’re suffering
    from more than bipolar mania.

    The more I read from your comments, I’m positive that I’m dealing
    with a very disturbed person.

    I’ve asked you this a couple of times, and you’re fearful of
    giving me a straight answer….

    MY QUESTION “Or do you deny them the freedom of choice in living their life as they desire…not as they are now feeling and living it?”

    YOUR ANSWER: “What’s more interesting is why YOU need to believe this.”

    WHAT IS YOUR FEAR WILLIE…all I need is an uncomplicated answer.
    But I realize that basically you are threatened by the answer I
    know you cannot tell me.

    Willie…you have deep problems that are obvious…and only your
    trust in God can give you peace and joy. Don’t be afraid to
    talk to God….He loves you in spite of your lifestyle.

  112. I will recap AGAIN, reading is not your strong point:

    – Believe what you will, it is of no relevance to me.

    – As for your other question, why none earth should I answer such a remedial query like that when you refuse to answer questions yourself? The notion is quite frankly laughable. When you answer the question put to you, then we can delve in on your obsessional “dirty old man” topics. Until then nothing you say here has any merit.

    What is clear is your growing anger and frustration, and that frustration is borne out of your powerlessness to our successes… I see the two inversely proportional. So in that way, the more you rants like a lunatic, the more I know we’re getting the civil liberties we deserve.

    What a troubled little schitzo you are, and about as Christian as a rabid snake.

    Bye bye Hankie!!! Lights out time, the other patients need to sleep.

  113. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 5:35pm

    Willie…Willie….what’s happening to you?

    You’re exhibiting and now you’re resortomg cosistently to defensive coping whenever you’re faced with any stressful question. Please see how you’re behaving — getting close to
    lunacy it seems.

    Today’s psychologists would agree that defensive mechanisms are largely unconscious reactions — ways of protecting you from unpleasant emotions such as anxiety and guilt….and I see where that defines you Willie — more and more with your bizarre comments.

    I can see where your prevarication, denial, and evasion in your comments are “clear cut psychopathological ” reactions. I fear that you’re getting worse with your wild accusations about my comments..

    First of all you should realize that you used your defense mechanism to shield you from the emotional discomfort that’s being elicited by the stress of my questions.. Also, you’re using this defensiveness to suppress tremendous feelings of anger – irrational anger to say the least.

    You use certain trite phrases, terms, etc. to protect yourself by self-deception –which lets you continue your distorted thinking which in actuality distorts reality for you even more so it doesn’t feel so threatening – I feel sorry that you’re so totally unhappy, frustrated and disillusioned – you poor soul.

    The next step in your process mental descent is resorting to fantasy – wishing that I was dead!

    Willie….you need help…and God is your answer – accept Him before it’s too late.

  114. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 5:58pm

    Willie…when I posted the follwoing article “The annual meeting of the British Medical Association has declared that therapies to ‘cure’ gay people of homosexuality are harmful.

    The body met in Brighton yesterday and more than two-thirds of doctors present backed a call for the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other mental health standard-setting bodies to reject the treatments and ban their use in codes of practice.
    Health departments should also investigate alleged cases of conversion therapy being funded by the NHS, the meeting agreed.
    Research published last year found that a SIXTH of registered British therapist and psychiatrists have attempted to “cure” patients of homosexuality”

    You never responded to my question: “Are these “one-sixth”
    U.K. experts also schizophrenic and demented in their thinking?

    Or is this irrelvant to you again?

    You are so transparant in your behavior and self-protection responses.

  115. No, Hankie, you’re schizophrenic. The New World Order? Nonsense. Scientifically proven Evolution a “belief” system? Also nonsense. The ramblings of a lunatic.

    You just keep on going with the same old jaded rhetoric, don’t you? Obsessed, perhaps? We all know that THAT’S a symptom of, don’t we, Hank? It begins with ‘s’… have a guess.

    Oh, I don’t need to wish you dead, you’re already dead inside. A pathetic shell of a human… a parody of a human, actually.

    So, tell me Hank, how does a deformed albino like you, who would be so used to social prejudices, end up becoming the hateful and bitter, ridden with neurological defects that leas you to believe in global conspiracies out to get you?

    If you evade the question, by your own logic, you’re insane.

  116. FloridaHank 6 Jul 2010, 8:46pm

    Willie….Willie….you said, “So, tell me Hank, how does a deformed albino like you, who would be so used to social prejudices, end up becoming the hateful and bitter, ridden with neurological defects that leas you to believe in global conspiracies out to get you?”

    This all is so FUNNY….so FUNNY!

    First, I am not an albino. Someone long ago posted that and I thought it was so funny, I never made a comment about it. I just let idiots like you and your homosexuals continue passing it on…and the more it was passed on the more I laughed at your sheer stupidity that you all tried to attach negative attributes to me….but in the meantime, I honestly saw you people as asinine, immature, ridiculous, perverted, pathetic, hopeless beings – always trying to disparage normal people because of your inadequacies …you poor feckless, lost individuals….I truly feel sorry for your lostness in humanity.

    Also, I don’t have cancer….as was attributed to me long ago…
    that’s another idiotic, but funny thing that I laugh at whenever
    it’s mentioned.. You guys are hilarious…keep it up…it’s good food for my soul.

    “Used to social prejudices”…Wow…another stupid statement coming from another dolt – which I find is plentiful on this website.

    I’ve have enough pleasant, loving, happy, meaningful relationships with attractive women during my dating years (never had a desire to have any intimate relationship with a man….UGH!….how distasteful of a thought) …though I’ve had
    male friends in the normal sense of the word…playing ball…fishing…hunting…hitting on attractive women, etc…..but NEVER even thinking about a man instead of a woman for a sexual relationship….you guys don’t know what great pleasure you’re missing….but that’s OK, I’ve gotten your share of it for you!

    “Hateful, bitter, ridden with neurological defects”…another laughable comment. I am a very happy Christian….believing in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior…who has shown me the Truth that I live by….and I have joy and happiness that none of you can begin to contemplate…but you still have a chance to find it….read the Holy Bible and let God talk to you…He LOVES YOU….BUT HE HATES THE SIN YOU’RE LIVING.

    So…boys…you still have time to straighten up…but time is working against you and one day you’ll be dead and it’ll all be too late to see your sins…Now is the time!

  117. “never had a desire to have any intimate relationship with a man….UGH!….how distasteful of a though”

    HA! HA! HA! Classic! Oh, no, someone might thing you’re gay… what being on a gay site so much.

    Lets recap this again:

    – Obsession with gay people, and their sexual habits. As will all sexual obsessions, is not a “normal” trait. His reluctance to acknowledge this leads to one suspect that Hank is a danger to other, or has been in the past. This sexual obsession is prevalent in paedophiles and people who go on to commit sexual offences against others.

    – Its been proven scientifically that homophobic people are extremely likely to be harbouring homosexual views themselves (Hank’s aggressive reaction this this study was well seen in another thread). Apart form the scientific study, its common sense – it goes back to the original point – its not normal to obsess with gay people, masking it in “religious belief” is very convenient for him, as it allows him to engage in titillation on this site with a good cover story.

    I think we’ve ticked those two boxes, Hankie! Well done!

  118. Oh, and one more thing, if you were “a very happy christian”, you wouldn’t be in here, would you? No, you protest too much. You are anything but happy. You an old fool in a world changing too much for you to understand. Its okay, you were born, like, centuries ago, or something, and you can’t be expected to be keep up with everything around you.

    And I don’t care if you are an albino or not, you’re clearly deformed… not all deformities occur physically. Suffice to say you’re an angry little man powerless to do anything against us gay people.

    And you puerile blustering make me believe you getting more and more desperate to inflict some kind of pain to gay people…. you can’t, of course. But try away, it really makes me laugh. Really, it does.

    I suppose I won’t be sending you an invite to my wedding next year to my partner? Pity, it’ll prove to be a great day! Still, you’ll probably be dead by then, can’t be much left in you. But I’ll go on with my happy life, so not to worry, and the wedding will be a glorious affair! Advantages of an education and a powerful position, Hankie…. I’ll send some cake to the asylum they keep you in if you not on a ventilator by then! HA!

    Well, I’ve had enough. You’re really boring. Repetition might be fun to a schizophrenic like you, but an intelligent individual like me finds its truly dull. There are more fun religious nutters around this site I can play with to amuse myself.

    I’ll go on this note: Nothing you have said will change my mind that you are a pitiful individual and a dying old fool trapped in your own ranting psychosis. In fact, nothing you have said will change the mind of any one else on this site for that matter. It makes us more resolved and stronger. Gay Civil Right are coming to us daily. While, you, and your kind, are being laughed back into the dark ages. And a man, like you, who amounts to doing nothing, is ultimately nothing.

    Don’t bother replying, I wont be checking this thread again. But by all means rant away, I’m sure there’s another personality in that dumbed down brain of yours you can have a conversation with, maybe you’ll be more effectual with them? LOL!

    Bye Bye!

    Willie…as with many people who pull over to the side of the
    road to look at an accident…I check out your bizarre statements
    that I could only see on a gay site — it’s human nature to
    look at oddities and weird goings-on

    Since you only constitute a small minority of human nature
    and its behavior — where else can I go to see this kind of behavior — this is how I get my kicks…so don’t disappoint me
    by not continuing with your inane postings.
    And if you get your kicks trying to foist your sophomoric statements as to my intentions — go ahead — I see through
    them — and in fact, I see that you might be jealous of my
    heterosexuality, and even envy it — do you think any homosexuals
    would like to be heterosexuals? Don’t give me an answer, because
    it’s irelevant, I know you!

    NOW WHO COULD BE JEALOUS OF AN OLD QUEEN LIKE YOU….YOU KNOW YOU LIKE A COCK UP YOUR OLD WRINKLED ASS!

  121. I fid this both hilarious and a fantastic way of voicing ones opinon. The weak minded will claim it to be a immature attack on the pope or catholic church. Perhaps the religious (hehe). But people with a brain cell can understand the contervestial but utterly needed social message.
