Posted on 03/16/2011 2:01:43 PM PDT by massmike
Beginning in late February, the Brazilian government has begun to take complaints of homophobia on its Dial 100 emergency line, which was created to facilitate the reporting of human rights abuses. The system was announced along with a new government program with the slogan, Make Brazil a country free of homophobia, which includes a special logo.

First, being diseased (AIDS) is a protected status. Now being a pervert is a protected status?
Maybe we are in the end times.
Oh this little government program is going to lead to all kinds of fun, unintended consequences.
Break it down
Homo means queer....phobia means fear....'fear of faggots'....
I know lots of people who find the practice disgusting and unnatural but NONE who are afraid of them....
another misnomer by the MSM and Elitist Scum politicians.
“Maybe we are in the end times.”
If not, perhaps we need to be.
Simply a further attempt to outlaw Christianity.
By definition homosexuality is in direct opposition to diversity.
They should be as discouraged as the KKK.
Sounds like a system to report every homosexual you know of as being afraid of his own shadow—a victim constantly looking for an assailant.
We should export our sodomites to Brazil.
Homo was derived from Greek ὁμός translated as homos, which means the "same" (not related to the Latin homo, "man" as in Homo sapiens, also the genus that includes modern humans and species closely related to them).
Hence we have homogenized milk which has the fat globules emulsified so that the liquid is everywhere the same and it will no longer separate into distinct layers.
In the case of "homosexual" the implication would be "same sex". I resent the loss of perfectly good words from our tongue like "gay" and "teabag" now prefixes like "homo" are being high-jacked as well.
fraid your wrong....
I know the root of the word...(pun intended)
the fags took the root homo and coopted it...and when they use the word homophobia....they use it to mean fear of homosexuals.
You just stole my post.
Who the hell is afraid of queers?
“but ya know, He doesnt even mention a single overt sin, other than the fact that the world is completely unawares of what is going on - just life as normal”
Same thing with the reference to the days of Noah. It’s not strange when you think about it: the Christian view is that all sins are equal, so doesn’t that suggest that the world is always full of sin? We may associate the stories of Lot and Noah with particularly distinct sins, but really if the world being sinful is a sign of the end times, then it wouldn’t be that useful of a sign.
I think the point is really just that God’s judgment can come at any time, and usually when we least expect it. That’s a pretty universal maxim, since you can apply it to special acts of judgment like the Flood or Sodom & Gommorah, the coming judgment of the world, or the universal judgment we face after death, which can come at any time as well.
Looks like you and I are on the same page...
In addition to words being high-jacked and given new, corrupted meanings I also mourn the death of the past tense. It started with the news readers on TV trying to jazz up their presentations by making everything present tense. "I drive downtown. I see this guy leaning out the window of a red Ford. I hear a shot and I see a woman fall at the curb." All of this happening now? No it happened yesterday.
I know it's a quibble but what is wrong with the past tense? Everything now sounds as if it were written by sixth graders.
I also absolutely hate "goes/go" as in "She goes what ya doing? I go nothing much, you?" trash, just trash. It's not "Ebonics" it's just bad grammar and sloth.
I’m going to a different thread now. Wanna come with?
Nah, you can make it by yourself or do you need help stepping off the curb?
“Because in both excerpts He basically says they knew not; i.e. not only didnt understand but didnt care to understand.”
Right, it’s not that they were caught unprepared because God was being sneaky, He always sends messengers to warn people, over and over, but most people just scoff.
I’m calling 911!
It took a second for that to sink in....LOL.Please don’t rat me out!I’m sorry!
