You have a right to your beliefs and to express them BUT you have no right to attack my faith. You are in my prayers.

He's weeping for us because of all the lonely single people. That's why he's busy in outer space on his computer setting up love matches on the Christian mingles website.

God is also busy communicating with his best friend Kirk Cameron.

Agree 100% ..... they're all fairy tales for people who can't deal with death.

bencasey wasn't "attacking" anyone. Just because someone doesn't agree with your beliefs doesn't mean it's an attack. Lighten up.

Ignorant ancient people sounds like an attack to me. CommonTater, don't let bencasey get to you. He insults everybody that doesn't agree with him. He's been doing this for years.

I wasn't attacking him, just making a comment about childish beliefs.

Yes I know I have seen his/her insults to others for a long time, it's sad that they continue to allow it.
Another person joined in to further insult me and agree with the 1st attacker.

I admit I'm religious, I will never hide that fact. I go out of my way to be kind to others because we never know what someone else is dealing with and because I'm a Christian. I don't insult those who aren't Religious, those of various faiths and I don't call others names. I expect others to respect my beliefs too.

I just expressed my opinion which apparently I'm not entitled to do unless I don't have a different opinion or I want to be called names.
I am ill and don't need the insults or stress from a message board which I joined to help fill my time in this bed and join in conversations with some people I thought enjoyed TV like me, old shows, some new shows and just chat about it. I am not too proud to also admit it gets lonely. Sometimes you cheered me up with some of the different conversations.

My granddaughter was here last night, sometimes she comes on here to read, she doesn't post. She was upset that anyone would say such hateful things to her Grandmother, she had a hard time understanding it but I was so proud that she said, we have to pray for people like that Maw Maw. Yes, I'm proud because she's in College making exceptional grades and she respects other people.

I wish you all the best. I will miss you.

I don't insult anyone that isn't religious either. If they make a comment, I won't say anything. The problem for me is when they mock someone's religious beliefs. That's what makes me mad. They are entitled to their opinion but when they laugh at somebody for what they believe, that's crossing the line. I'm sorry that you're ill. It sounds like you're leaving. I'm sorry for that too because this site needs more members like you.

Well I think that a lot of television is more trashier then it was back in the day. Reality shows would have never been allowed on TV back in the 1960s and even possibly the 1980s. And cussing was never even allowed on TV back in the 1970s either. You don't see many sitcoms nowadays that have a decent plotline either. So I personally think that television has long forgotten its values.

Uh you don't have to be religious or 50+ to think it is repulsive to expose kids to sex, extreme violence, and vulgar language. I am sure there are many 30 something parents out there that won't let their 11 year old tween watch an episode of Girls or Dexter...even atheist ones. Moreover, there are TV and MPAA ratings for a reason.

I know a few people who grew up in strict religious households; they were forbidden to watch anything that wasn't approved by their parents (they didn't even have cable), and could only listen to christian music. Naturally, they went to a private christian school.

The one kid grew up to be a heroin addict. The other is covered in tattoos and piercings, and the girl is happily married with a bunch of kids living the average suburban life. The moral and pious upbringing didn't 'save' the first two.

There were plenty of bad people and horrible things in the world back when TV was 'wholesome' and entirely family oriented....just saying.

Sad to say the culture is the same. In the last 10 years, shootings, more only in the bedroom/or in the doctors office talk. I remember seeing Bob Dole talk about Erectile Disfunction and thought Oh my lord. Here is politician talking about this?. On the streets you heard people cursing. Hey even on this board people are acting different. I did get kick some one saying WTF could mean. "Why the Face". I immediately thought of the dirty word for F.

Now my question "how do you cope with swearing? Do you ignore it, roll your eyes, say Knock it off, or swear too for this is the new lingo? .With tv you can just not watch certain shows, but out on the street.
