  • Gays Who Accept Homosexuality is a Mental Illness ZOT!

    06/07/2015 8:32:59 PM PDT · by johnhankle177 · 37 replies
    Hello This is the first time I have posted so please forgive me if I have this topic in the wrong place. However, I had a questions and was hoping to receive some help. I am writing an article about gays who are against the homosexual agenda and thought I would include something in there about homosexuality and mental health. In the 1970s the APA changed the classification of homosexuality so it was no longer considered mental illness and many psychology and psychiatry organizations all over the world have followed. However, there was little basis at that time to think...

    So, I lurk on Free Republic quite a bit. Usually it's to read some of the outrageous comments some post here and some of it is to see what your opinions are on certain articles that also get posted elsewhere. So, a little bit about myself. I'm in my 20s and of Hispanic origin. I was born in New York but moved to Florida when I was three years old. I'm what you guys would consider a "socialist". I don't consider myself a socialist, I'm a supporter of the free market economy except I favor strong government regulations. While on...

    My involvement with Free Republic began around 2000 when my wife began her vigil around the Texas governor’s mansion in support of GW against the challenge of Al Gore for the presidency. I generally provided the livelihood for the Bat Lady to be able to protest and surround the mansion against the leftists who were kept at bay across the street. While she was registered in order to post after action reports I was a lurker on the site. Over the years we have attended rallies and protests and meetings. Other groups of freepers nationwide also held rallies, attended protests,...

    enin's goal of world communism was based on long term deception, please read his writings. His plan was to create regional governments, by destroying national sovereignty then ultimately merging the regions together into a one world system.

Chris Story, former Thatcher advisor explains. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFA4B1rCKvg And in America's open border policies, destruction of state sovereignty through intentional out of control spending and legislated treaties like NAFTA and GAT that creates a three nation state (US,...

  • All non-Christians are Satanists - all trolls are ZOTTED

    09/28/2010 8:41:58 AM PDT · by Josh Martins · 80 replies
    Many seem to think that Satanists are simply people that worship Satan voluntarily and practice witchcraft. However, that is wrong. I would like to widen the definition of "Satanist" to all those who do not accept Christ. As Luke 11:23 says, all those who are not with Christ are against Him. By not accepting Christ, one supports Satan, regardless of whether he/she knows it or not. Every rejection of Christ grows Satan stronger. Jews and Muslims think they oppose Satan, although they are actually supporting him by not following Christ. Members of non-Abrahamic religions and non-religious people lack a belief...

    To the Honorable Justices: There is an application (Donofrio v. Wells) that is scheduled for conference by the Court on 5 December 2008. Regardless of established Court standards of procedure, this application deserves to be heard by the Court en banc since it concerns the cornerstone of all U.S. Law – the United States Constitution. It questions the very foundation upon which our republic was built and it inquires as to the intentions of the Founding Fathers. In the year 2000, the Court ruled in Bush v. Gore that “the individual citizen has no federal constitutional right to vote for...

    The Republican Party as it is now has no chance in a large part of the country, and lacks direction in the rest. The only one I can see at this time that has his hand on the pulse of the movement is Rush Limbaugh. A new base of operations needs to be established and soon before even the remnants of the movement are scattered with such things as the fairness doctrine. So I am appealing to you Rush Limbaugh to start a new party.

    I've had two epiphanies in my life, the first came in my early twenties when I turned against my fundamentalist Christian upbringing. I admit this was more of a rebellion against the strict moral code of conduct rather than an ideological awakening, however over time I rationalized and validated my reasons for disbelief. I am comfortable with my religious views, or lack thereof, if not always comforted. My second awakening of sorts started when I moved to California and saw liberalism in action. It has been a gradual process over the past couple of years but watching the election this...

    New York - In an effort to sabotage the McCain Palin victory at the polls, Democrats and their friends in the Media have taken to drastic measures to prevent history from being made in the election of the first female vice president in US history.

They seek to demoralize and dash the hopes of hard working Americans who just want to exercise their constitutional right to vote. One elderly voter was...

I can see why on Friday he distanced himself at the town hall meeting in Lakeville, MN. He didn't want to be branded a racist, which ironically, the dems keep raising the issue, even Obama himself. The one thing McCain can do between now and election day is come up with a detailed plan on the economy, something Obama has not done. McCain should also distribute the letter...

    If you have wondered why celebrities seem to be so important in elections you need look no further than how Gov. Palin is scheduled to meet with several world leaders. As you read the list of top dignitaries you will notice which one gets top billing….is it with Iraq President Jalal Talabani or Pakistan’s newly-elected President Asif Ali Zardari? Is it with the presidents of Georgia and the Ukraine? Maybe the prime minister of India will get top billing. India does have a sixth of the worlds populous and controls the global help-line industry. At least it seems that way...

    Is it just me or is anybody else wondering why McCain/Palin isn't using the "energry crisis" to offset the "financial crisis" and the "unemployment rate crisis"? They need to promote aomprehensive energy policy that includes drilling for petroleum and natural gas, mining for clean coal and development of alternative energy sources, including wind, solar, hydro and biofuels. Here are the benefits: 1. There is an estimate of several million, good paying domestic jobs that would be created, which would birng down unemployment and increase tax revenues. 2. Increased tax revenues as a result of the new jobs created, would help...

My anger also extends to the national media, which includes the press and conservative radio talk show host that have long touted the “savior of the Republican party’s future.” Since Hurricane Katrina, Louisiana has made the national news and exposed the corrupt and inept leadership in Baton Rouge.

    Lets not keep requesting for same sex marriage. Lets demand that one woman and one man marriges no longer get the benefits that type of marriage receives from federal and state government. When they realize that they have no power of decision making over the health of their mate, that neither one can inherit the social security or the estate they have built and that they loose all the benefits just for the entitlement of one man and one woman marriage certificate. That will stop the religious and political push to change the US Constitution or any state constitution.

    That does it. I wondered for a while now about McCain. I am now totally convinced that McCain values World opinion over the value of American lives. He would rather let Americans die (like Lambs to Slaughter) than jeopardize his so called World opinion. Firstly, as pointed out in the debate – the terrorists are not uniformed military personnel who abide by the Geneva Convention. They cut heads off and hang their opposition from bridges. Secondly, McCain’s view of torture is so misguided one has to wonder what kind of torture he received in Vietnam. He has confused being uncomfortable...

    Hi, gang, I was a regular contributor to the Kerry Online Forum and am now a regular contributor to the Common Ground Common Sense forum. I am a liberal, but I'll be the first to admit, I don't have all the answers. In fact, many of hte questions that matter to me probably matter to you too.
