Colgate Joins ‘Gay Pride’ Push With New Ad, ‘Smile With Pride’ Hashtag

Colgate-compressedNEW YORK — The toothpaste manufacturer Colgate-Palmolive has joined the push to promote “gay pride” in the month of June by releasing an advertisement featuring two homosexual men.

The commercial, which generated over 21,000 likes on social media, features two men who are moving into an apartment together. As they stand next to the moving truck looking at the outside of their apartment, one of the men lays his head on the other man’s chest, who strokes his hair.

The men then proceed to carry a sofa up the stairs, at which point they are met by a middle-aged man and a young boy. The two parties stare at each other for a brief moment, not knowing what to think, but the middle-aged man and boy accept the men and gesture to each other to help them carry the sofa.

“Welcome,” the middle-aged man says, causing one of the homosexual men to smile.

“Thank you,” he replies.

The young boy also waves and says hello to the smiling men.

“Sometimes all you need is a smile,” the announcer states as the two homosexual men sit on the couch and hold hands. “And all your smile needs is Colgate.”

The advertisement ends with a call to viewers to “share your #smilewithpride.”

Reaction to the advertisement has been mixed as some have applauded the company’s support of homosexuality, and others have opined that the commercial has more to do with an agenda than toothpaste.

“Thank you for putting this commercial out! I absolutely loved it! As a future dental professional, I want to promote a company who is inclusive to all and also who sells really good products,” one commenter named Rob Frey wrote.

“I would love to see more of this on magazines, TV screens, and billboards. Spread the love,” another named Jonjon Quiles said.

“Really garbage,” a commenter named Reynaldo Cabral opined. “Just show me a tooth commercial. Instead you’re showing some gay couple moving in and feeling and stuff … nothing to do about teeth.”

“That’s the last dime Colgate will ever receive from my pocket,” Thomas Kane wrote. “Colgate-Palmolive needs to sell their products and stop trying to force a social and political agenda on it’s customers!”

Moderators for the company left pro-homosexual comments under some of the viewer reactions, such as “Love puts a smile on everyone’s face” and “[Y]ou are making us #SmileWithPride.”

As previously reported, Colgate is among a myriad of corporations that have sought to include homosexuality in their marketing or have announced their support for same-sex “marriage.”

Tylenol promoted lesbianism in its 2014 American families advertisement, and DirecTV and CVS likewise came out with commercials featuring homosexuals that same year. In San Francisco, Burger King advertised its “proud Whopper,” while Nabisco promoted its Honey Maid grahams and Teddy Grahams in a commercial that featured a homosexual couple.

In 2012, cereal giant General Mills came out in support of same-sex “marriage,” and dessert mix company Betty Crocker did the same a year later, donating cakes to three homosexual twosomes for their “wedding.” JC Penney published Mother’s Day and Father’s Day print ads depicting homosexual couples in 2012, and in 2009, the Campbell’s Soup Company placed a two-page ad featuring two lesbians in the homosexual publication “The Advocate.”

    I know, I know. Times are changing. The couple in this commercial are moving in together before marriage! I don’t see wedding bands on their fingers! Tsk tsk, shame shame, what would our grandmother’s generation think of us?! Cohabitation before marriage is shocking.

    • Peter Leh

      funny…

    • http://biblewordstudy.org Adam in Christ

      Sperm and fecal matter is not a healthy combination, Michael.

      • Jalapeno

        So is your problem with people who have anal sex or gay people?

      • Ronald Carter

        You have no issue with it when it’s men and women though? Why?

        • Ken Faivor

          It’s all sodomy, all illicit sex.

          • Ronald Carter

            That’s where you’re wrong.

      • TheKingOfRhye

        It’s always the anti-gay people that have to turn something like this into a conversation about gay sex….makes me wonder, sometimes…..

        • http://biblewordstudy.org Adam in Christ

          That’s what makes homosexuality homosexuality: gay sex.

          I’m not the one engaging in it; just merely calling out what they practice.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            You’re the one bringing it up, and rather graphically at that, I might add. There wasn’t anything any more sexual in the commercial than, as the story says, “one of the men lays his head on the other man’s chest, who strokes his hair.”

          • http://biblewordstudy.org Adam in Christ

            It is what it is.

            Mixing sperm and fecal matter is, indeed, disgusting; but it’s what they practice.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Probably useless to point it out to you, but anal sex is not necessarily gay sex or vice versa….and you would seem to have both very little understanding of, and a preoccupation with, both.

          • http://biblewordstudy.org Adam in Christ

            Yeah, but gay sex (sodomy) is the only sex that two men can engage in. They don’t have the option to do it correctly — unlike a man and a woman.

            Thus, “thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is an abomination”.

            Two men were not created to practice sexual relations with each other (and neither two women).

          • Ronald Carter

            And you still haven’t said why you aren’t bothered by straight couples who do it.

    • The Last Trump

      No worries Mike.
      In this case the “marriage” wouldn’t be valid anyway. Cohabitate away!

      • Ronald Carter

        Well of course it would. Legal now. Do you ever read the news?

    • Coach

      We already know you hate God, now it’s evident you hate your grandparents as well.

      The fact is murder, suicide, and drug rates are skyrocketing. When it comes to homosexuality, you gladly applaud it out of a hatred for what is pure. You would gladly say with Hitler “it’s progress” what are you chasing? What are you moving towards? What is your goal in life? Is it to celebrate perversion in every form? Murder the innocent, praise the guilty. Do you seriously think the eternal, thrice holy God will turn a blind eye and not carry out the sentence of condemnation that you already have on you.

      And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:28-32

      • Douglas E. Berry

        Actually crime rates are down nationally. Drug use is at 20 year lows. But hey, facts. Not your thing, I take it.

        • Coach

          According to Douglas, I won’t debate this, I’ll simply say ok, there was a time when students getting shot in school was an unthinkable concept, when rape didn’t frequently happen on college campuses, when terrorists weren’t homegrown in every state, but on more serious news, where will you go when you die.
          Dozens of people entered the lake of fire yesterday with no clue the God whom they spent their lives mocking would put an end to them.
          You want to talk technicalities, because you can technically say I’m wrong about crime and drug rates, go ahead, I know the reality this nation and ultimately this world is headed to and I urge you Douglas, flee the wrath to come, believe the gospel of Jesus Christ and be saved from this perverse generation. God is holy, righteous, and good. He will by no means pardon the guilty. The wrath of God was poured out on Jesus Christ on the cross to pay the penalty of all who would put their trust in Him.
          God commands all to repent, for we come to God on His terms, not ours.

          • Douglas E. Berry

            If you won’t debate, what’s the point in posting? Oh, and rape happened, the police just didn’t consider it a crime and blamed the victims. As for terrorist, may I introduce you to the Ku Klux Klan? American-made terrorism since the 1870s!

            As for the rest, prove that any of that is real.I’ve read the Gospels, they contradict each other. I’ve also read the Koran, the Eddas, and at least a dozen other holy books. All are a mixture of good ethical rules and unsupportable myth. Why should I accept yours?

          • Coach

            The Ku Klux Klan, product of white supremacy. Tell me, which religion aligns with their ideology? Darwinism, the myth about origins, which you follow or the Bible, God’s Word, which we Christians submit to?
            The whole concept of black people and white people is a lie rooted in Darwinism.
            The racist natural selection concept is taught in every public school in America and we’ve reaped the consequences, a nation that defends the murder of over 3,000 per day the highest percentage being darker brown or in darwinian terms, black.
            God will not hold you guiltless, who call this terrorism good and call good evil.
            Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
            Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
            Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
            21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
            And prudent in their own sight!
            22 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
            Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,
            23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
            And take away justice from the righteous man!
            24 Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble,
            And the flame consumes the chaff,
            So their root will be as rottenness,
            And their blossom will ascend like dust;
            Because they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts,
            And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

            Judgement is coming, your leader April 19, 1882 and has been suffering torments ever since and will receive no break, nor drop of water to cool his tongue for all eternity, because he sinned against an infinitely worthy God and didn’t receive the pardon that Jesus offers sinners, who repent of their evil and believe on Him.

            Revelation 22:14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

            16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

            17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

    • ComeOnPeople!

      What does GOD’s Instructions say about it? Forget about your dear moral Grandmother and ask you CREATOR what HE thinks about two males being intimate together or fornication. HE is HOLY and HIS word teaches us how to be like HIM. HOLY means set apart, different from the world. HIS word teach us what is unclean or clean, what is HOLY and what is profane . Sin is the transgression of HIS instructions. Repentance is turning away from disobedience and back towards HIS ways and not our own ways or a corrupt societies .

      Times change … YES but our GOD never changes. What pleases HIM or displeases HIM will remain forever.

      • Douglas E. Berry

        God never changes? OK, is it a mortal sin to eat shrimp?

        • ComeOnPeople!

          HIS instructions say that shrimp are not for food. Shrimp are bottom feeders and eat all the pollutants of the sea causing them to have very high levels of mercery in them. They like all the animals and creatures that GOD said where not for food were created to clean up the dead or decayed . I would no more eat a shrimp then others on the not for food list in GODs instructions such as bats, vultures, snakes, rats or pigs. They are all unclean and toxic by nature.

          Is it a sin … The bible says if you keep HIS instructions you will be blessed and if not you will be cursed . Eat a wormy pig or a mercery ridden shrimp and you may not experience a curse right away but one day you will. Shellfish are one of the leading food allergy & food poisoning deaths and pork meat is the leader of toxicity in meat. Pork also carries very hard to kill worm eggs which hatch inside animals and humans who consume pork flesh.

          As to Homosexuality there are many many studies out that speak of how gays are more likely to contract STD’s then straight people. How they are more likely to abuse drugs, alcohol and have broken relationships. So yes disobedience to the CREATOR’s instructions does bring a curse with it and obedience brings blessings.

          Can I eat shrimp… SURE! Can I choose to walk after my fleshly lusts… SURE! Why because GOD loves HIS creation and LOVE once forced is no longer love. I LOVE HIM therefore I KEEP HIS commandments. I don’t eat what HE said was unclean or not for food because I trust HIM and know HE judges righteously. HE knows all and sees all because HE is infinite. I am only finite.

          • Douglas E. Berry

            OK, so what about Acts 10:9-17? God tells Peter it’s OK to eat forbidden things. Or Mark 7:18-20? Or Romans 14:2? All of those tell us to eat whatever we want.

            The Biblical commands of pork and shellfish are good ones if you live in a semi-nomadic tribal culture that cooks over open fires. Properly cooked, pork and shellfish pose no threat. You can eat ray oysters, because they don’t carry the same diseases as, say, lobsters.

            The studies showing gays have more STDs are not accurate, and not accepted by real medical researchers.Same for the idea that gays are drunks. They looked at young men in their twenties (a group known for partying) at a time when being gay was a social stigma.

            My dad was perfect straight and a drunk. Care to explain why God cursed him? Rob Halford of the band Judas Priest is blessed with an amazing vocal range and enduring international fame and fortune. He’s openly gay. Guess God forgot to zap him, right? Or is it that you are projectiing your own biases onto the world.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            What was Peters interpretation of his dream. Was it what you say it is?
            Did Peter understand it to mean he could now eat unclean animals?

            Mark 7:14-23 You fail to understand the subject of the chapter, which is Jesus’ denunciation of the Pharisees for their rejection of God’s commandments in favor of their OWN traditions (verse 8). Verse 2 introduces the context: “Now when [the Pharisees] saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with UNWASHED HANDS, they found fault.” The dispute was over CEREMONIAL cleanliness—eating without first washing one’s hands—which is not even an Old Testament law but a “tradition of the elders” (verse 5), which the Pharisees had themselves proclaimed authoritative. Also noteworthy is that the kind of food the apostles were eating was “bread,” not meat. In context Mark 7 is not about clean and unclean meats at all!
            Christ turned the conversation around to stress what really defiles a man in verses 20-23. And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, “thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. “All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”

            Rom 14:1-2 Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things. For one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. These verses are describing people who choose to eat vegetables for religious reasons. They think it is sinful to eat meat, any meat. In the next verses, Paul takes advantage of this situation by admonishing people not to judge such people.

            Your father disobeyed God’s instructions not to drink in excess or to be drunk. There is nothing wrong with a little wine but GOD’s instructions clearly say to not drink in excess. GOD does not curse mankind… people curse themselves by disobeying the laws that were given to draw them back to their original state and close to their CREATOR.

            As to anyone who is transgressing GOD’s instructions seeming to be blessed… David said that he wondered at the prosperity of the wicked until he went into the house of the LORD and saw their end. Eventually sin brings forth a curse whether now or in judgement. Blessings are not always seen either some blessings are internal such as peace , joy and a sound mind. Many a persecuted martyr had peace, joy or spoke love to their torturers even while being burned alive or thrown to lions. So understand curses or blessings are not just things you see or own.

          • Douglas E. Berry

            Ah, so we can interpret the Bible to make it mean what we want it to say. Got it. And now messages from the divine are just dreams.

            My father had what is now recognized as an actual medical condition. Alcoholics don’t choose to be drunks any more than I chose to have a stroke. His brain was just wired in such a way that he could not stop drinking.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Peter had fallen asleep and had a vision from GOD… he himself did not understand what GOD was saying 3 times… then gentiles showed up at the door. He then knew and understood the vision and it had nothing to do with unclean animals. Read what he says his vision was about. GOD used all manner of beasts in a sheet to convey a message. That message was not… hey Peter you missed the memo & are pretty free to ignore GOD’s instructions now without consequence. No the vision was to inform Peter that GOD was grafting the Gentiles into the common wealth of Israel. Peter was still not eating anything common or unclean well after the Messiah had risen . I believe it was like 45 or more years after but don’t quote me. Not to mention anyone who studies Torah knows that all manner of beasts is not only unclean but clean all mixed together in that sheet. Which even makes the vision all the better. Jew and gentile one in the Messiah.

            My father drank also and yes they can stop with help from their Creator. Will it be easy ? NO! WHY? Because just like sexual perversions , the brain will grave whatever you have acted upon and continued to feed. It takes a lot of work to kill the black dog you feed and a while to get the white dog back up to strength but it’s worth it.

  • Jolanda Tiellemans

    Short, but sweet. I mean the ad.

  • Guest

    Does the ad include special tips for homosexual men’s dental health, like watching out for gonorrhea of the throat, open mouth sores, or HIV?

    • Ronald Carter

      None of which straight people get ever…

      • Guest

        Not to the same extent that homosexual men do, no. That’s why there are special dental clinics just for gay men’s health. Same with eye clinics, etc. It’s not a healthy lifestyle.

        • Ronald Carter

          I don’t suppose you have a source? Not about the HIV part, which has nothing to do with dental health…

          • Guest

            You don’t realize that patients with HIV need to have special dental treatment? How naive are you?

          • Ronald Carter

            And straight people don’t get HIV? How naive are YOU?

          • Guest

            HIV made its way into the heterosexual community by homosexuals intentionally spreading it, and by bisexual sex.

          • Ronald Carter

            And drugs had nothing to do with it? Give your head a shake. Homosexual men aren’t the highest demographic with HIV these days and they haven’t been for ages.

          • Guest

            It began by intentional contamination. Disgusting to kill an innocent child over a degenerate cause.

          • Ronald Carter

            What a baseless, disgusting thing to say.

          • Guest

            Not only is it not baseless, it’s old news. Don’t tell me you’re 12 years old? That might explain the bad biology part.

          • John N

            AIDS started as a disease with heterosexuals in Africa long before it hit the homosexual community in the US.

            Please get your facts right before starting to argue. Basic biology might be a good start.

          • Guest

            Actually, the virus was noted in homosexual men in Manhattan years before it was recognized among Africans.

          • Ronald Carter

            Actually, John N has it right, and you don’t.

          • Guest

            Actually, John N is not a scientist, and has proven repeatedly that he is ignorant and uneducated.

          • Ronald Carter

            AIDS originated in Africa. Fact. And it was John N who said it. You said something ignorant and baseless.

          • Guest

            Indeed I did not state where AIDS started, nor did I list the cause. I merely pointed out that the first documented cases are among homosexual men, not among heterosexual African men. That is a scientific fact. John N has no science degree yet he tries to talk science all the time. Then he gets embarrassed, slinks away, until he forgets his shame and tries another false claim.

          • Ronald Carter

            No, John N never backs down from people like you. That’s why I follow his posts. They do a great job of sticking to hard data and facts.

          • Guest

            John N has no science education and has repeatedly embarrassed himself with his assertions. He’s never been able to prove one assertion of his.

          • Ronald Carter

            I don’t believe you have a science education either if you believe that there are no monogamous homosexuals, or that STDs can be transmitted between monogamous couples, or that only homosexual men engage in sodomy, or that Jesus spoke English and wrote the Bible.

          • Guest

            a.) Did you bother to read the articles I gave you? You don’t think Mayo Clinic is a good source? 🙂 Or the CDC? 🙂 You’re really showing your ignorance, Bob.

            b.) No one ever said that Jesus Christ spoke English, but since He is God, He speaks all languages, and of course He wrote the Bible. However, why are you veering off on another tangent?

          • Ronald Carter

            The articles you provided did not state that there were no monogamous homosexuals, nor that STDs can be transmitted between monogamous couples, nor that straight couples don’t engage in sodomy.

          • Guest

            You are wrong. Re-read the sources, Bob. It’s all there.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            And they say Athiests are dumb. Do some research. Oh no of course you don’t, cause you could be wrong. The first man with HIV was a African man who ate contaminated ape meat.

          • Guest

            That has never been proven at all. In fact, that’s mere speculation because the AIDS community doesn’t want mention of bestiality to be made. Long before there was a confirmed African case, there were confirmed western homosexual cases. AIDS isn’t a new disease. It’s just spreading quicker because homosexuality is on the rise, and because travel is more common.

          • Slidellman4life

            Actually, it was a homosexual airline pilot from Canada that gave Americans our first confirmed case. You need to get YOUR facts straight.

          • John N

            Actually, AIDS existed already more than 50 years before that. Do you realize there is a whole world outside your USA?

          • Slidellman4life

            Do you realize I couldn’t care less as it’s not relevant and probably false anyway?

            I already have. By the way, you’re “odd how you never do” really gives you away. You need to come up with some new lines if you’re going to try to pretend to be other people.

          • Ronald Carter

            No you haven’t, and I can’t think of a more mundane phrase than “odd now you nee do” or why it would be something you could possibly use to identify someone with. I don’t care who you think I am. It doesn’t matter and it has no bearing on anything that gets discussed here.

            This is scientific fact? Right!

          • Guest

            Yes, it is. Read about the homosexual dentist who intentionally injected patients with his HIV tainted blood. Read about homosexuals intentionally donating blood to infect the blood bank. That’s how Ryan White died.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            No where I can find that Ryan White got blood that was intentionaly infected with HIV. Poor little sad life you have. Seeing a conspiracy in everything.

            Are you familiar with a continent called Africa, Matthew? Why don’t you Google it? And have a look at the HIV stats there. I’ll wait.

            Hint: Most oft the people who have it are not homosexuals.

          • Slidellman4life

            This isn’t about Africa. Nice try.

          • Ronald Carter

            No, it’s about the “highest demographic for AIDS”, your own words. Which happens to be Africa. Do you even read the words you write?

          • Slidellman4life

            We still are not talking about Africa. I am talking about the United States of America, where Canadian airline pilot (and homosexual) Gaetan Dugas brought AIDS into this country (as per Randy Shilts’s And the Band Played On…).

          • Ronald Carter

            It’s still higher in Africa, Matthew.

          • Guest

            There are documented cases of homosexuals intentionally infecting the blood data base, or of homosexual dentists intentionally infecting their patients, to make the disease more mainstream. That’s what I’m referring to.

          • Theodore Fenton

            So you’re suggesting gay men should enter into monogamous relationships and settle down and marry? I agree that’s great advice.

          • Guest

            Monogamy doesn’t protect one from disease when it comes to homosexual relationships. Even monogamous homosexuals have a host of health problems that heterosexual men typically don’t have.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Please share which health problems you are talking about.

          • Guest

            I already gave the title to search. That will take you to an article that discusses all the health risks, and give you links to other sites.

          • Ronald Carter

            Actually, you are bearing false witness yet again. Monogamous homosexuals cannot get STDs. How could they?

          • Guest

            Oh my. Trying to use the Bible to accuse a Christian. Sounds very familiar. 🙂 Here you go:

            “Monogamy

            Monogamy for heterosexual couples means at a minimum sexual
            fidelity. The most extensive survey of sex in America found that “a vast
            majority [of heterosexual married couples] are faithful while the
            marriage is intact.”1 The survey further found that 94
            percent of married people and 75 percent of cohabiting people had only
            one partner in the prior year.2 In contrast, long-term sexual
            fidelity is rare among GLB couples, particularly among gay males. Even
            during the coupling period, many gay men do not expect monogamy. A
            lesbian critic of gay males notes that:

            “After a period of optimism about the
            long range potential of gay men’s one-on-one relationships, gay
            magazines are starting to acknowledge the more relaxed standards
            operating here, with recent articles celebrating the bigger bang of sex
            with strangers or proposing ‘monogamy without fidelity’-the latest
            Orwellian formulation to excuse having your cake and eating it too.”3

            Gay men’s sexual practices appear to be consistent with the concept
            of “monogamy without fidelity.” Astudy of gay men attending circuit
            parties showed that 46 percent were coupled, that is, they claimed to
            have a “primary partner.” Twenty-seven percent of the men with primary
            partners “had multiple sex partners (oral or anal) during their most
            recent circuit party weekend . . . .”4 For gay men, sex
            outside the primary relationship is ubiquitous even during the first
            year. Gay men reportedly have sex with someone other than their partner
            in 66 percent of relationships within the first year, rising to
            approximately 90 percent if the relationship endures over five years.5,6
            And the average gay or lesbian relationship is short lived. In one
            study, only 15 percent of gay men and 17.3 percent of lesbians had
            relationships that lasted more than three years.7 Thus, the studies reflect very little long-term monogamy in GLB relationships.”

            Google that quote to pull up the entire site. Lots of great resources there.

          • Ronald Carter

            You are being dishonest again. The issue is monogamous gay couples. So why are you giving me stats on couples who have difficulty remaining monogamous?

            If a couple is completely monogamous, regardless of their sexual orientation, they aren’t going to get STDs.

          • Guest

            The article, which is from a pro-homosexual website by the way, proves that the homosexual definition of monogamy is not the same definition of monogamy used by the heterosexual community.

          • Ronald Carter

            Fine. Use the definition that the dictionary uses, which is the one that I meant. That is, people who are committed only to one another.

          • Guest

            I’ve already shown you by the homosexual-friendly article that such a definition is not recognized in the homosexual community, and that STD’s run rampant as such. Even if one couple only ever has relations with each other, however, disease still is more common among homosexual couples because their bodies were never meant to engage in the practices that they do.

          • Ronald Carter

            You’re still changing the subject. The issue is people who are 100% monogamous. Gay or straight, doesn’t matter. They aren’t going to sexually transmit disease to each other. It’s impossible.

          • Guest

            I’ve not changed a thing. 🙂 You just don’t like the response. Of course it is possible for people to pass disease to each other. Homosexual practice alone is breeding ground for lots of germs.

          • Ronald Carter

            How is that possible when straight people can engage in all the same practices that gay people do?

            You really didn’t think this through, did you?

          • Guest

            Answers to your questions can be found by searching “Facts About Youth – Health Risks of the Homosexual Lifestyle”, “Enteric diseases of homosexual men”, and “Health issues for gay men and men who have sex with men” from Mayo Clinic.

            Every link I gave you was about homosexual health. Every single one.

          • Ronald Carter

            And not one of them shows that a monogamous couple is going to contract an STD.

          • Guest

            The dispute isn’t about heterosexual couples being able to contract an STD. It was about homosexual men being more likely to get HIV. I gave you a Johns Hopkins study as a source. Are you going to claim Johns Hopkins isn’t qualified to conduct a medical study? Because that’s your MO.

          • Ronald Carter

            Why are you providing information about a homosexual man being more likely to get HIV when that was never in dispute?

          • Guest

            Actually you did dispute It. Have you run back and edited again? 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            No, that’s your game. I don’t play it.

          • Guest

            Now, now, don’t be dishonest. By the way, the monogamy blurb I posted for you still stands. Go have a look and be sure to check the studies upon which the article was based.

          • Ronald Carter

            Yeah, using some newfangled definition of “monogamous”? I don’t think so.

          • Guest

            It’s the same definition that’s in the dictionary, and homosexual couples don’t keep it at all. Even Dan Savage admitted as much.

          • Ronald Carter

            No, it’s not the same definition. Monogamous means committed to a single person. And yes, homosexual men can be, and are, monogamous using that definition.

          • Guest

            And monogamous homosexual men by any definition still have more disease than monogamous heterosexual couples.

          • Ronald Carter

            Baseless, offensive and false.

          • Guest

            Again, those are medical facts from reputable sources, such as Johns Hopkins and CDC.

          • Ronald Carter

            Provide the exact texts, please, so we can look at how you are using them dishonestly.

          • Guest

            I already gave you that, ad nauseum. To request it repeatedly is trolling, Bob. That’s why you get reported and banned on just about every site you’ve been on. How many identities have you had now? Over a dozen?

          • Ronald Carter

            No, you didn’t. You gave misleading information, which is the only information you have. And no, I have never been banned from here or anywhere else because my name is not Bob. This is why they say lying for Jesus is still lying. You’re the Christian here, bearing false witness is a doozy with you guys, and here you are doing it left and right. Doesn’t that concern you?

          • Guest

            You keep doing this, Bob. You didn’t like the fact that Johns Hopkins said homosexual men are more likely to have poor health related to their homosexual lifestyle. You didn’t like the fact that the CDC said the same thing. You don’t get to make science up. Science is based upon facts, not feelings. You have falsely accused me of lying (something Satan regularly does to Christians), yet you yourself once claimed to be a Lutheran Christian “standing in the lion’s lair”. Tsk tsk, Bob.

          • Ronald Carter

            I am not Bob, and you’re clearly lying when you make the statement that a monogamous homosexual is at risk of a sexually transmitted disease because it would have to come from an outside source. Furthermore, your source makes no such suggestion. Science is based on facts – why don’t you present some? Precisely nothing you have said is based in fact, from my identity, to my faith, to all the different people you have accused me of being. Again, you’re the one who has to be concerned about lying, not me. I have no faith.

          • Guest

            So you don’ t think Johns Hopkins uses science as its basis when it says homosexuals are more likely to experience ill health? And CDC doesn’t use science either, according to you? Better tell the BMJ that “Ron” doesn’t think they use science. 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            I don’t dispute Johns Hopkins, not any other science based organization.

            I don’t disagree with what they are saying. I disagree with what you SAY they are saying. Because you are using lies and dishonesty about monogamous homosexuals.

          • Guest

            So when I quoted I was lying? 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            When you quoted I don’t think you understood your source well enough to know what it said. Either that or it said something you were choosing to manipulate the meaning of. You got off on the wrong foot when you tried to say there was more than one meaning of “monogamous” and everything you posted thereafter was an embarrassing bellyflop. You may as well be stating that a 5-year old kid has a chance of getting an STD as much as a monogamous couple. It just isn’t going to happen. Unprotected sex and promiscuity, neither of which is a component of monogamy, are how you get STDs.

          • Guest

            “Ron”, I’m very familiar with what those sites said. There are entire clinics devoted to homosexual men’s health because the health risks are so high. It’s not a healthy lifestyle.

          • Ronald Carter

            Quote mining is not a difficult skill, Cletus. That’s all you have done here.

            How funny that I call up the very article from Johns Hopkins you keep flogging, and search for the word “monogamous” and find nothing. So I think, ok, what about “monogamy”? Nope, still nothing. Then I just try “monog” hoping for a crumb, but nope. And you have the nerve to say that you aren’t lying.

            And in your zeal to demonize homosexuality, you overlook something very obvious – the reason gay men are at higher risk for sexually transmitted diseases? Because men are more driven by sexual desire than women. And so when there are no women in the picture, there is a lot more uninhibited sex going on. But the good news? The gay men who take precautions and are careful? They remain as healthy as anyone else.

          • Guest

            I cut and pasted the article for you. You’re either lying about not being able to find it, or else you’re really inept at searching.

          • Ronald Carter

            Let’s see how good YOU are at it. It’s not in this entire thread. I searched both Johns Hopkins and monogamous. Nothing.

          • Guest

            Here you go:

            Chris Beyrer, M.D., MPH, director, Johns Hopkins Fogarty AIDS International Training and Research Program, Baltimore Biology Leaves Gay Men Highly Vulnerable to HIV: Study

          • Ronald Carter

            I see, and do I win a prize if I can find a reference to monogamy in there?
            That’s the same exact article I looked at online earlier.

          • Guest

            My reference to Johns Hopkins wasn’t about monogamy. It was about gay health being more precarious than heterosexual health due to homosexual practices.

          • Ronald Carter

            The article lays the blame squarely on unprotected sex. Duh. With the correct protection (when necessary) it’s no more dangerous than straight sex.

          • Guest

            No it doesn’t. It lays blame on sodomy.

          • Ronald Carter

            So I gather reading comprehension wasn’t your strong subject.

            Read back. I just did. Not hard to do. The subject is monogamous gay couples getting STDs. They cannot get them if they are monogamous, just like straight couples. We don’t need a Johns Hopkins study on homosexual men more likely to get HIV because it’s irrelevant to the subject at hand.

          • The Last Trump

            No need to attack his reading skills just because you’re losing this argument.
            Let’s keep it civil and be a good sport when you lose “Ron”.

          • Guest

            You are incorrect. The articles I gave you cited how a.) monogamous homosexuals DO give and receive STD’s simply by their unnatural and unhealthy sexual practices , and b.) that monogamy means something totally different to homosexual couples than it does to heterosexual couples. All the articles I gave you backed these claims up, and were all homosexual-friendly sites.

          • Ronald Carter

            No, the articles you cited do not cite any such thing about monogamous homosexuals. Monogamous has one meaning, and you were told to use the dictionary’s. I am not interested in anyone else’s.

          • Ronald Carter

            What a shame, when the subject is sexual practices common to straight and gay people. Unless you’ve got a Mayo Clinic source that will state why straight couples who engage in sodomy are less likely to get HIV than a gay couple would.

          • Guest

            Indeed I do. I already gave it, along with a CDC link that also says it’s more prevalent. Why don’t you search them and see? I cannot post a link but I did give you the title and site for each article.

          • Ronald Carter

            So you admit that there’s really nothing a gay couple can contract that a straight couple cannot also contract, and that HIV doesn’t just attack homosexuals but heterosexuals as well. Thank you.

            And we have also established that a monogamous gay couple isn’t any more likely to contract an STD than a monogamous straight couple. Thank you.

            If you want to post an article that says that MEN in general are more inclined to promiscuity, which just MIGHT have something to do with the fact that HIV rates are higher in gay men, go ahead. And I won’t dispute it.

          • Guest

            That’s not what I said. Please read my posts carefully. Use a dictionary if need be.

            HIV is more prevalent amongst the homosexual population. Here’s an article to search for you:

            “Biology Leaves Gay Men Highly Vulnerable to HIV: Study”

            The source was Johns Hopkins. Care to dispute their credentials as well?

          • Ronald Carter

            Why are you providing that information when it was never being disputed? Why are you changing the subject over and over?

          • Guest

            Nice try there, Bob, but that doesn’t fly. 🙂 The fact remains that my original contention is that homosexual men have more dental health problems than the heterosexual population and that’s been proven true.

            American College of Pediatricians? Seriously? LOL!!!

            The Southern Poverty Law Center has referred to the American College of Pediatricians as a Hate Group, describing the American College of Pediatricians as a “fringe group” with “a history of propagating damaging falsehoods about LGBT people, including linking homosexuality to pedophilia” which closely collaborates with National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH). Writing in response to an American College of Pediatricians brief, the American Civil Liberties Union similarly referred to the American College of Pediatricians as a fringe group which has acted to promote “unscientific and harmful ‘reparative therapies’ for LGBTQ students.”

          • Guest

            It’s a group run by pediatricians. The Southern Poverty Law Center no longer has any credibility. They labled Dr. Carson an extremist and later walked it back, offering an apology. They did good work during the civil rights movement, but unfortunately have become an extremist fringe group who have walked back many of their recent attacks.

            Anal Cancer Incidence Rising in Homosexual Men – Cancer Network, 2000

            Homosexuality and Cancer Risk – Onco link – March 2012 –
            Men who have sex with men are at increased risk of anal cancers, which are in large part caused by HPV. The risk is higher for those with multiple partners and sex without condoms though ANY anal sex can increase risk. HOWEVER, it is not necessary to have anal sex for the anal tissue to be infected with HPV.

            CDC –
            March 2010: HIV and Syphilis Among Gay and Bisexual Men
            September 2010: One in Five Men has HIV
            The consequences of homosexual activity have significantly altered the delivery of medical care to the population at-large. With the increased incidence of STD organisms in unexpected places, simple sore throat is no longer so simple. Doctors must now ask probing questions of their patients or risk making a misdiagnosis. The evaluation of a sore throat must now include questions about oral and anal sex. A case of hemorrhoids is no longer just a surgical problem. We must now inquire as to sexual practice and consider that anal cancer, rectal gonorrhea, or rectal chlamydia may be secreted in what deceptively appears to be “just hemorrhoids.”37 Moreover, data shows that rectal and throat gonorrhea, for example, are without symptoms in 75 percent of cases.38

            The impact of the health consequences of gay sex is not confined to homosexual practitioners. Even though nearly 11 million people in America are directly affected by cancer, compared to slightly more than three-quarters of a million with AIDS,39 AIDS spending per patient is more than seven times that for cancer.40 The inequity for diabetes and heart disease is even more striking.41 Consequently, the disproportionate amount of money spent on AIDS detracts from research into cures for diseases that affect more people.

          • Slidellman4life

            I have read their posts. You are lying, “Ron.”

          • Ronald Carter

            Not a chance, Matthew.

          • Slidellman4life

            As someone else said, even Dan Savage has admitted this. Are you calling him a liar?

          • Ronald Carter

            I don’t recognize Dan Savage’s authority to re-define the word “monogamous”, do you?

          • Theodore Fenton

            I don’t know about that. I work in my five-county judicial circuit’s domestic court and our court docket every week is flooded with opposite-sex marriage cases where one or both parties have not been monogamous.

          • Slidellman4life

            Non-sequitur.

  • Theodore Fenton

    Beautiful ad. I applaud Colgate’s courageous stand in the face of hatred, bigotry, and persecution of the gay community.

    • Guest

      Yes, because it really helps stop Muslims from throwing homosexuals off of rooftops./sarc

      • Ronald Carter

        Is that something you wish you could do?

        • Guest

          No, is it a particular fantasy of yours, Ron?

          • Ronald Carter

            No, because I don’t hate people based on their sexuality.

          • Guest

            Neither do I.

          • The Last Trump

            No. Just based on their religion, huh?
            Sure. Makes sense I guess.
            (Yikes!)

          • Ronald Carter

            Hate is in the eye of the beholder, Last Smug.

      • Aaron

        It’s almost like a company with its headquarters in the United States has somewhat of a focus on what goes on in the United States. Weird.

        • Guest

          Then you’d think they’d know about the serious dental health issues homosexuals face and try to implement that in their advertising. Weird.

          • Theodore Fenton

            That’s odd. My husband and I both had excellent results at our last cleaning and checkup.

          • Guest

            That’s odd that you are unaware of homosexual dental health issues. You should take a health course or something.

          • Aaron

            Serious dental health issues?

          • Guest

            Yep, particularly since AIDS can occur from a simple mouth sore.

          • Aaron

            I’m unclear why a company that focuses on on things like toothpaste and toothbrushes should be involved in that. Do you expect them to provide some kind of health-related PSAs?

          • Guest

            If they’re going to feature homosexuals, they need to give the full story.

          • Aaron

            Does featuring someone from a particular group automatically mean that the company must discuss any and all health issues related to that group – even if it’s not something they have anything to do with?

          • Guest

            Only if it relates to the product, which it clearly does.

          • Aaron

            How does toothpaste relate to aids?

          • Guest

            You don’t understand the need for good dental hygiene and open mouth sores? I seriously hope you’re 10 years old and can learn.

          • Aaron

            They sell toothpaste – is that the company you’d be expecting to get information about AIDS from?

          • Guest

            Hey, if they’re going to use homosexual men in their ads, it’s very relevant.

          • Aaron

            Let’s pretend for a moment that a toothpaste company should be giving advice about AIDS. Should they also give advice about every dental-related health problem which could conceivably affect they customers?

            As people love to point out, LGBT people only make up a small percentage of the population. Shouldn’t they really be targeting health advice to their straight customers, which affect the largest absolute number of people?

          • Guest

            Why not? Toothpaste commercials typically mention problems like gingivitis, cavities, etc. Since they are featuring homosexual portrayals, why not address homosexual health concerns? After all, isn’t that who they’re trying to appeal to?

    • bowie1

      But they still want to sell toothpaste, yes?

  • Amos Moses

    Well,,,,,,,,,,, shopping at the 99 Cent Store for generic products is looking better and better …….

    • Alison Mohr

      Careful, sometimes they are made by name brands!

      • Amos Moses

        And sometimes i buy them ………….. but it is a much nicer shopping experience ….. the produce tends to be as good as other chains …. mostly local producers …. and less expensive ……….. see people in the parking lot with Jags and a lot of other expensive cars ……….. its a good deal all around ….

    • Ronald Carter

      And THAT tactic always works so well, doesn’t it? Last time I checked, Starbuck’s and Target were still doing great business.

      • Guest

        So what?

        • Ronald Carter

          So when people get wind of the fact that there’s a boycott, they often retaliate in the other direction, which takes the wind out of your sails.

          • Guest

            What does that have to do with shopping one’s conscience?

          • Ronald Carter

            Only that everyone’s got a conscience, and not everyone’s conscience leans in the same direction.

          • Guest

            No kidding. How long did it take for you to figure that one out?

          • Ronald Carter

            It didn’t take any time at all. My point still stands. Boycott based on your conscience,and others will apply pressure the other way. Cause and effect. How badly do you want to be the cause?

          • Guest

            So what?

          • Ronald Carter

            Yeah. So what.

          • Guest

            Yeah, you’re a troll. A stupid one, too, which is even worse.

          • Ronald Carter

            Flagged.

          • Guest

            Oh wow. You must be Rich. He used to hyper flag too.

          • Ronald Carter

            Don’t call people names and you have nothing to worry about.

          • Guest

            You mean like you have called people here “homophobes” and other names? Where have you been called names, Rich?

          • Ronald Carter

            I’m not Rich whoever that is. I haven’t called anyone a homophobe but I have identified plenty of homophobic statements. See the difference? One is something allowed here and one isn’t.

          • Guest

            Are you hallucinating again, or just making up stories in hopes that they will stick?

            You have clearly called people homophobes yet not one person has threatened to throw you off a roof or anything. However, you and your cohorts have consistently threatened Christians, which is why you keep getting banned and then reappearing under another moniker.

          • Ronald Carter

            I’ll just tell you the same thing people always seem to have to tell you but you never understand. Provide your proof that I’ve called someone a homophobe, and that will settle it.

          • The Last Trump

            I believe that means you have already lost all argument, Flagger.
            Remember? Your words, captain censorship. 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            It isn’t censorship to flag someone who insults me and says nothing else. You should know that from personal experience, your royal smugness. You have had posts deleted yourself, Mr. Model Christian.

          • Amos Moses

            Who said boycott ………….

      • Amos Moses

        So what?

      • Amos Moses

        Hmmmmmmmm ………… Yeah …. Better coffee at Mcdonalds and usually a dollar less in cost ……….Target did blame their losses on “climate change” …….. seen else where ………

        A dozen suppliers confirmed to Reuters in May that Target has demanded they take on more of the costs of marketing and selling slow-moving items, from candy to electronics.
        The size of these costs varies on a case-by-case basis, they said, and are confidential. In total, during the year ending Jan. 30, 2016, suppliers gave Target $379 million to fund such marketing costs, according to its latest annual report.
        Minneapolis-based Target, the second-largest discount retailer in the United States, wants to minimize the impact of markdowns on profit in a tough year as middle income customers make fewer discretionary purchases. In May, Target reported a drop in sales for the quarter ended April 30, and Chief Executive Brian Cornell predicted an extended period of promotions ahead for the retailer and rivals.
        Most suppliers who spoke to Reuters said they will have to comply or at least deliver part of Target’s demands so old stock can make way for new season products. That will strain already thin margins.
        “Target is not leaving a lot of room for negotiation here,” said one supplier, who asked to remain anonymous. “They want to get this unsold stock out of their stores in the next three months.”
        Last month, Target pressured suppliers to tighten up on delivery times with the threat of fines.
        Two of the suppliers who spoke with Reuters said if they are fined for missing delivery deadlines, they would consider cutting promotional fund payments by an equivalent amount.
        “We have budgets to stick to,” said one supplier, who did not wish to be identified. “We cannot just keep giving them discounts on (product) volumes they are not able to sell – we have to make money when doing business with Target.”

          Ronald Carter is none other than Oshtur, the purple Guest guy who gets banned everywhere, including here. 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            What is it with people accusing me of being others on this board? I have been called Val a lot too.

          • Guest

            When you’re playing alts, try to change your grammar and syntax, Rich.

          • Ronald Carter

            You have me wondering who Rich is, I will give you that much. He sounds cool.

          • Guest

            Yep. you just gave yourself away again, Osthur/Rich/Purple Guest. You are so unimaginative.

          • Ronald Carter

            OK then.

      • Slidellman4life

        Target? I do not think so. Not after giving the finger to a rather large section of Americans.

        • Ronald Carter

          By choosing to be inclusive to another group of Americans?

    • Peter Leh

      at least you stay off Facebook…

      but you still use a PC…. hmmm.

      i guess you dont care THAT much eh?

      • Amos Moses

        got it at the 99 Cent Only store ………. great deal …………..

        • Peter Leh

          with no software that runs it.

          thank you for supporting gay right.

          • Amos Moses

            What does the software have to do with “gay rights” ……

  • Ronald Carter

    It’s a perfectly fine ad. Honest about homosexual relationships, in that they are exactly the same as straight ones.

    • Guest

      Oh come on. Even you don’t believe that.

      • Ronald Carter

        Of course I do, what issue could anyone have with it? Are they having sex in the ad? Is the fact they seem to like each other a problem?

        • Guest

          There is nothing similar between homosexual relationships and committed heterosexual relationships. You need a biology course, don’t you, Ron?

          • Ronald Carter

            Why? Are you saying sex is the only component in a relationship that matters?

          • Guest

            You sound as confused as gizmo. Sure you’re not him under yet another alt? You keep bringing up things that are totally unrelated just like giz/gears/petej/james blue did.

          • Ronald Carter

            Right, because everyone opposed to homophobia has to be one person using many aliases, there couldn’t possibly be more than one.

          • Guest

            So are you Osthur/Rich? And where have you seen homophobia here?

          • Ronald Carter

            No. And constantly.

          • Guest

            Oh come on. Stop making things us, Rich.

          • Ronald Carter

            If you have proof I am this “Rich” person, bring it on. Otherwise you are trolling. Not very good form on a Christian website, is it? Bearing false witness?

          • Slidellman4life

            WOW! Coming from a proven pathological liar that’s a 10 on the audacity scale!

          • Guest

            You want proof? Just look in the mirror, Rich. 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            I’m not Rich. By the way, what are YOU hiding by using the name “Guest”? I’m guessing by your taunting and obnoxious posts that you’re no stranger to being banned either.

          • Guest

            I’ve not been banned, no, and I use the name “Guest” because it is the most popular name on Disqus. You used to use it, too, remember, Rich? Prior to Oshtur.

          • Ronald Carter

            How can I remember something you made up?

          • Guest

            You’re not very good at this, Rich. 🙂

          • Slidellman4life

            He hasn’t, as there is no such thing as homophobia.

          • Ronald Carter

            That’s right. Everyone loves homosexuals, especially followers of Abrahamic religions.

          • Slidellman4life

            Shut it. The idea that people who disagree or disapprove of homosexuality are afraid of it is flat BS.

          • Ronald Carter

            Hatred is based in fear. That’s Psych 101.

          • Slidellman4life

            *facepalm*

          • Ronald Carter

            That’s right.

          • Slidellman4life

            The facepalm is for your stupidity.

          • Ronald Carter

            And the report flag is for name calling.

          • Slidellman4life

            Sounds like you need a diaper and a pacifier. If you are going to make implied asinine statements like, “Disapproval equals hate equals fear,” then you should expect to be called on it or go to another website to insulate yourself from any and all criticism.

            Remember: You came to a Christian website to promote your vision of a world of moral and sexual anarchy. Just what gives you the idea you are entitled to anything remotely resembling civility?

          • Ronald Carter

            Oh, baloney. I’m here to suggest to some of you so-called Christians that Christ would probably be sick if he saw some of the things you do and say in his name. All the hate and garbage and, yes, fear. And if you think saying hate is fear is so laughable, why don’t you type it into Google to see how many people agree?

          • Slidellman4life

            I’m here to suggest to some of you so-called Christians that Christ would probably be sick if he saw some of the things you do and say in his name.

            I’m here to say you wouldn’t know because you know less than zero about my Lord and Saviour.

          • Ronald Carter

            Yeah? Why all the screeching hatred about homosexuals all the time then? Jesus said nothing about homosexuality and ate with lepers. Love, forgiveness, acceptance – all the things you abhor, Matthew. In what sense are you a Christian?

          • Slidellman4life

            This is not even about me, Rob.

          • Guest

            I was waiting for you to make an antisemitic slur, Bob, and it didn’t take long. Remember your discussion of Kristallnacht, and how your relatives smashed in the storefronts of Jewish businesses and they deserved it? Remember that one?

          • Ronald Carter

            No, I don’t remember that conversation, because I am not Bob. Nor Rich. Nor Oshtur. Nor Val.

          • Guest

            Convenient memory loss there, Bob.

          • Ronald Carter

            How funny that I’ve only been posting here for months and it’s only now that you accuse me of being Bob and Rob and Oshtur and Rich and and and….

          • Guest

            Do you want to discuss the topic at hand or are you going to make this all about you again?

          • Ronald Carter

            Happy to discuss it, why are you making baseless accusations about me using other aliases?

          • Guest

            Please stay on topic, Bob.

          • Ronald Carter

            You first.

          • Guest

            You can’t have a hissy fit every time science proves you wrong, Bob. Embrace science. It’s your friend.

          • Ronald Carter

            As long as you continue to call me Bob, you’re making baseless accusations that are irrelevant to the discussion, serve no purpose but to annoy people reading, and reveal you to be a troll. Continue to do so and you will be reported. You have been warned.

          • The Last Trump

            Well, if you feel the need to censor your opponents then I guess you’ve lost all argument already.
            Remember? Your very words, “Ron”.

          • Ronald Carter

            What argument are you making by calling me names, which is not permitted on this forum, or accusing me falsely of being people who I have no clue about from your sordid pasts?

          • The Last Trump

            Huh?
            I called you names now!?
            Thought “Ron” was your name?
            Are you alright, bud?
            Think you have me confused with somebody else “Ron”.

          • Guest

            Warn me for what? Having an opinion different than yours? Being able to prove my points articulately and thoroughly? You did the same thing when you posted as Oshtur and Purple Guest. You repeatedly ‘warned” me and reported me. How many times have you been banned?

          • Ronald Carter

            I was not Oshtur or Purple guest or anyone else. Ever.

          • Guest

            Why obsess?

          • Ronald Carter

            Why not just call me by my name, and not something you imagine?

          • Guest

            Okay, Robert. 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            See? You are incapable of not being a jerk.

          • Guest

            There goes that name calling of yours again, Rob.

          • Ronald Carter

            I am not Rob.

          • The Last Trump

            Gee, I think I see a pattern here, “Ron”.
            How bout that.

          • Ronald Carter

            Me too, Trump, your quotation marks around my name have shown up again when I told you I’d report you if you did it again. Didn’t learn from having all those baseless messages removed the first time, huh? No, of course not, well when do you EVER learn?

          • The Last Trump

            Report what?
            That I addressed you by name? Really?
            Hee, hee! Report away “Ron”!

          • Ronald Carter

            If you insist.
            Moderator: The Last Trump falsely and baselessly accuses me of being another person or people from this forum. I am not and have never been. He has no proof and taunts and derails the discussions in progress here. Please remove all future posts of his that address me as anything other than Ron or Ronald, and not “Ron”.

          • The Last Trump

            ?
            I’ve accused you here of no such thing. But very clearly others have. I’ve done nothing but address you as “Ron”. I don’t know who you are and don’t care. But if quotations around a profile name hurt your feelings somehow, perhaps discussion boards are not the place for you.
            You just don’t get to censor everyone that doesn’t agree with you bud.

          • Ronald Carter

            It’s a blatant lie. According to you I am “Val” and “Jocasta” and the fact you are physically incapable of NOT putting quotation marks around my name, my given name, my BIRTH name, tells me you are a game playing troll, hee heeing and being insufferably smug – save it for someone else, I have HAD it. That the moderators continue to allow your posts to stand is remarkable.

          • The Last Trump

            They allow them to stand because they don’t break any of the rules. Hello!
            Nothing wrong with quotation marks. You can use em’ too “Ron”.
            Nobody but you seems to have an issue with them. What’s next, are you going to attempt to control my use of apostrophe’s and comma’s? I don’t think so bud.
            As for all of that other nonsense, that’s between you and others here.
            Again, you have me confused with someone else. Which the moderators can clearly see.
            Better re-read the posts here and direct your feeble attempt at censorship elsewhere. Thanks.

          • Ronald Carter

            You know very well that your cute quotation marks are intended to say that you think I am someone else. Guest is doing the exact same thing but believes me to be completely different people than you do. You’re both wrong. I use one name and what’s more it happens to be my real name – Ronald Alexander Carter. It’s a perfectly good name and I have the right to be referred to by my real name. If you and Guest have problems with people from your past, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all, it’s YOUR issue to deal with. Leave me out of it. It’s not relevant to discussion here and no one cares either.

          • The Last Trump

            I don’t know what you’re talking about bud.
            And I don’t know who you are.
            Or why every conversation has to be about you.
            But to me, you will always be “Ron”. Get over it.
            There are much more important topics to discuss here. Do so or move on.

          • Ronald Carter

            Not censoring your free speech.
            Deleting your baseless, pointless and irrelevant name calling and trolling and paranoia.
            Let’s let the moderators decide.

          • The Last Trump

            What, we’re censoring quotation marks now?
            Easy there fella. Doesn’t work that way.

          • Ronald Carter

            In your case, yes it does work that way.

          • The Last Trump

            Yes, he does that A LOT doesn’t he?

          • Ronald Carter

            No.

            What homosexuals do ………… is not sex …………

          • Jalapeno

            Is that the only relevant part of a relationship to you?

            I know a couple who has never once had “traditional” sex. They’ve only done oral.

            Does that mean that they’re the same as a gay couple?

          • Amos Moses

            Read the comments in context of the conversation ………. would improve your comprehension of what was being said …… and you would make more relevant comments …….

          • Jalapeno

            I did.

            You’re acting like they’re different because..biology.

            So..that kinda suggests that the main difference is the type of sex they’re having. How else could that be interpreted?

          • Amos Moses

            “You’re acting like they’re different because..biology.”

            They are of like biology ……….. so not sex …………..

            The comment is self explanatory ……….. what homosexuals do ………. is not sex ………. it may be a lot of things ….. it may be “sex like” ………. but it is not sex ………

          • Jalapeno

            You’re right, I was lumping you in with the people who were whining about ‘sodomy’ and ‘fecal mater’.

            “but it is not sex”

            So..it IS based on sex? Make up your mind.

          • Amos Moses

            Like powdered sugar on a lump of manure is not a jelly doughnut ………… but people may want to call it a doughnut …………… but it aint ……………..

          • Jalapeno

            So..is it about the method that they use to have sex or not?

          • Amos Moses

            Ummmmmmm ………….. again ………… it is not sex ………… like manure is not a jelly doughnut …………… no matter how much powdered sugar you sprinkle on it ……….

          • Jalapeno

            It is literally under the definition of sex.

            So..if a straight couple only had oral and anal, would you have a problem with them?

          • Amos Moses

            Obviously …………….. yes …… it is still depravity ………….. that does not change the truth …………….

          • Jalapeno

            Okay, so instead of whining about gay people, you should whine about people who don’t stick to your narrow, inaccurate, view of sex.

          • Amos Moses

            No ………….. i will speak the truth to ALL ……………….

          • Jalapeno

            The “truth” that blowjobs are bad and immoral?

            Yeah, good luck with that. In the meantime, you should be whining about sex instead of gay people. Some gay people…get this…don’t have anal sex.

          • Amos Moses

            Yeah …………….. you believe what you will ………. but i guess when real science gets in your way …….. you are free to ignore it ……… because ignorance is bliss ……. till it bites you in the butt …………. explains why all those ignorant are not blissful ………. and a real lack of blissful people ….

          • Jalapeno

            What “science”?

            Sure sure, anal sex is evil and bad and disgusting and horrible and aids and poop and blah blah blah.

            So..what about the gay people who don’t have anal sex?

            What about the straight people who do?

          • Amos Moses

            sure, sure ……………… gave you the science ………. you suppress the truth in unrighteousness ……. sure, sure …………….

          • Jalapeno

            What science?

            Science that says that all gay people have anal sex and no straight people do?

            Anal Cancer Incidence Rising in Homosexual Men – Cancer Network, 2000
            Homosexuality and Cancer Risk – Onco link – March 2012 –
            Men who have sex with men are at increased risk of anal cancers, which are in large part caused by HPV. The risk is higher for those with multiple partners and sex without condoms though ANY anal sex can increase risk. HOWEVER, it is not necessary to have anal sex for the anal tissue to be infected with HPV.
            CDC –
            March 2010: HIV and Syphilis Among Gay and Bisexual Men
            September 2010: One in Five Men has HIV
            The consequences of homosexual activity have significantly altered the delivery of medical care to the population at-large. With the increased incidence of STD organisms in unexpected places, simple sore throat is no longer so simple. Doctors must now ask probing questions of their patients or risk making a misdiagnosis. The evaluation of a sore throat must now include questions about oral and anal sex. A case of hemorrhoids is no longer just a surgical problem. We must now inquire as to sexual practice and consider that anal cancer, rectal gonorrhea, or rectal chlamydia may be secreted in what deceptively appears to be “just hemorrhoids.”37 Moreover, data shows that rectal and throat gonorrhea, for example, are without symptoms in 75 percent of cases.38
            The impact of the health consequences of gay sex is not confined to homosexual practitioners. Even though nearly 11 million people in America are directly affected by cancer, compared to slightly more than three-quarters of a million with AIDS,39 AIDS spending per patient is more than seven times that for cancer.40 The inequity for diabetes and heart disease is even more striking.41 Consequently, the disproportionate amount of money spent on AIDS detracts from research into cures for diseases that affect more people.

          • Amos Moses

            Note from above “The risk is higher for those with multiple partners and sex without condoms though ANY anal sex can increase risk.”

            ANY …………………..

          • Jalapeno

            Okay, cool.

            You’re good with gay people who don’t have anal sex then, right?

          • Amos Moses

            So is your only issue gays and trannys …………… why? ………… got some Freudian thing going on there …………. Sinners are sinners ………. but they frequently need their sins pointed out ……. so what?

          • Jalapeno

            Are you okay with gay people who are in a committed, monogamous relationship and never have anal sex?

          • Amos Moses

            “Are you okay with gay people who are in a committed, monogamous relationship ”

            Do you mean the one or two of those that might actually exist ………… guess what …………. they are still wrong ….. they still know it ………. they are in sin ……. they need Christ …………

          • Jalapeno

            Okay. You’d still complain about it. Figured.

            So..lets get this straight.

            You have a problem with straight people who have anal or oral sex.

            You have a problem with gay people who have anal or oral sex.

            You have a problem with gay people who do not have oral or anal sex.

            I’m sensing a pattern here.

          • Amos Moses

            “So..lets get this straight.”

            Lets get us all straight …………….. the truth is the truth ………… is does not change or alter to a person specific tastes or bents …….

          • Jalapeno

            Oh, did you not pick up on the pattern of you effectively having problems with everybody who doesn’t fit into your narrow view?

            You might need to step it up a bit though if you’re going to start complaining about all couples who have oral sex. It’s a majority.

          • Amos Moses

            The truth is narrow ………….. or …………… IT IS NOT THE TRUTH …………. it is then a lie …..

          • Jalapeno

            Sure, sure…your own morals say that the majority of people are liars.

            Got it.

          • Amos Moses

            Sure, sure ………. Gods morals ………. Gods word ………… says that ………….. GOT IT?

          • Jalapeno

            Sure..in your interpretation, and in the set of morals that you follow (but not everyone else).

          • Amos Moses

            Because homosexual “marriage” does not lead to legalized pedophilia and bestiality ………….. SCRIPTURE proven right AGAIN ………………

            Canada’s highest court has just ruled that some sex acts between humans and animals are legal.

            In a quixotic ruling, the country’s high court ruled that a man who was on trial for raping and sexually exploiting his own daughters wasn’t guilty of “bestiality.” The man reportedly, “smeared peanut butter on the genitals of his victims and had the family dog lick it off while he videotaped the act.”

            The convicted man took his case to the Canadian Supreme Court, demanding that the bestiality charge be nullified. In the end, the court agreed.

          • Jalapeno

            Do we live in Canada?

            No?

            Okay. Great. The idiotic slippery slope fallacies still don’t work, and we still don’t all agree with your morals.

          • Amos Moses

            You live in delusion if you think this is limited to Canada ……………. Sorry …..CANA-DUH …………… Not a slippery slope ………….. IT IS A CLIFF ……

          • Jalapeno

            It is limited to Canada…a slippery slope based on how the legal system works in another country is effectively meaningless.

          • Amos Moses

            Homosexuals and their agenda ………… do not recognize the boundaries of countries …….. DUH! ……………

          • Jalapeno

            So..because you don’t like the fact that they want equality…you’re suggesting that they will pick and choose which laws to follow?

            It seems to me like you’re the one struggling with the idea of different countries having different laws.

            Justice Ginsburg on Using Foreign and International Law in Constitutional Adjudication
            by Duncan Hollis

            Justice Ginsburg has fired the latest salvo in the ongoing debate about the Court’s use of foreign and international law sources in constitutional adjudication. On Friday, she gave a speech to the International Academy of Comparative Law at American University, entitled “A decent respect to the Opinions of [Human]kind”: The Value of a Comparative Perspective in Constitutional Adjudication. Not surprisingly given her earlier opinions, Justice Ginsburg comes out strongly in favor of the Court’s use of foreign and international law materials to interpret U.S. law, including the Constitution. She begins with an historical defense:
            From the birth of the United States as a nation, foreign and international law influenced legal reasoning and judicial decisionmaking. Founding fathers, most notably, Alexander Hamilton and John Adams, were familiar with leading international law treatises, the law merchant, and English constitutional law. And they used that learning as advocates in legal contests . . . . The law of nations, Chief Justice Marshall famously said in 1815, is part of the law of our land. Decisions of the courts of other countries, Marshall explained, show how the law of nations is understood elsewhere, and will be considered in determining the rule which is to prevail here. Those decisions, he clarified, while not binding authority for U. S. courts, merit respectful attention for their potential persuasive value.

          • Jalapeno

            Yes, it influences things. No, that does not mean it’s a slippery slope.

          • Ronald Carter

            He’s a living, breathing example of the No True Scotsman fallacy.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Basically, he has a problem….with a lot of people.

          • Amos Moses

            Obituraries numbering 6516 from 16 US homosexual journals over 12 years were compared to a large sample of obituaries from regular newspapers. The obituaries from the regular newspapers were similar to US averages for longevity, the median age of death of married men was 75, 80% of them died old, 65 or older. For unmarried or divorced men the median age of death was 57 and 32% of them died old.

            Married women averaged age 79 at death, 85% died old, and unmarried and divorced women averaged age 71, and 60% of them died old.

            However, the median age of death for homosexuals was virtually the same nationwide, and overall, less than 2% survived to old age. If AIDS was the cause of death, the median age was 39 years old. For the 829 homosexuals who died of something else besides AIDS, the median age was 42 years of age, and 9% died old. Of 163 lesbians, the median age was 44 years of age, and 20% died old. 2.8% of homosexuals died violently and they were 116 times more apt to be murdered, 24 times more apt to commit suicide, and had a traffic accident death rate 18 times greater than comparably aged white males. 20% of lesbians died of murder, suicide, or accident, a rate 487 times greater than that of white females aged 25 to 44.

          • Jalapeno

            Okay, cool. You have an issue with unprotected anal sex.

            What about gay couples that do’t have anal sex? Are you okay with them?

            Remember..you were whining about the biology of it all. I’m not going to buy for a second that you care about their well being, so stay on track.

          • Amos Moses

            Apparently you do not care about them ……….. as the statistics i just gave you demonstrates ……… you want them dead ………. not me ………

          • Jalapeno

            Yeah, it’d be great if no one had to go through that stuff.

            You know what’s a good way to reduce the social pressures for them? People like you not whining.

            You know what’s a good way to reduce the STD rate and increase marital happiness? People like you not whining.

            See..when you just sit there complaining about how awful they are and how icky the sex is..you’re just making things worse. They won’t stop being gay, and they won’t suddenly decide that you’re right and pretend to be straight.

          • Amos Moses

            “You know what’s a good way to reduce the social pressures for them? People like you not whining.”

            No, because the only ones “whining” is them saying “pity me, pity me..”……… no ….. they need Christ ………… they need to come into agreement with Him ……….. they need to hear the Truth ……….. they need to repent …………

          • Jalapeno

            No.. Not at all. Most gay couples are just trying to go about their life while other people still can’t even deal with their existence.

            Look around you. Look at people being mad that they’re in a commercial.

          • Amos Moses

            They cant deal with their existence ……….. they know they are wrong …… they know they are in sin ………….. but we are the ones who are supposed to accommodate them ……….. because ……… they are aberrant ….. bassackwards …………

          • Jalapeno

            Seems to me that it’s the people like you who can’t deal.

          • Amos Moses

            Then your perception is wrong …………… sin is sin .. the truth is the truth ….. and yes ……. i cant deal with the big fat lies homosexuals want to tell about themselves to themselves and then they want others to buy their lies ………….

          • David Thaler

            “Sex like”? What about “Sex Helper” or “I CAN believe it’s not sex”? And BTW, does your significant other know that you liken sex to a pile of manure? What a SPECIAL relationship that must be, huh?

            BTW, it’s generally accepted that if someone has an orgasm, they had sex, and yes, that can include masturbation. That means homosexuals have sex.

          • Amos Moses

            ” you liken sex to a pile of manure?”

            No, sex is not a pile of manure ……….. what homosexuals do ………. is not sex …… it may be “sex like” or seem to be like sex ………….. but it is not ……….. and it is manure ………. but they try to sell that manure to everyone as if it was a jelly doughnut ………..

            and i do not have a “significant other” …………… which is just more manure with powdered sugar on it …. Politically Correct manure………… i have a wife …….

          • Amos Moses

            “BTW, it’s generally accepted that if someone has an orgasm, they had sex, and yes, that can include masturbation.”

            Ahhhhhhhhhhhh ………………… No …………… more manure ………….. and i do not care what is “generally accepted that if someone has an orgasm” …………. it is just a lie ……….. and not sex …….. it is depravity ………

          • David Thaler

            Isn’t it just a TAD arrogant of you to absolutely define what sex HAS to be?

          • Amos Moses

            God has defined it ……….. so if you have an argument with the definition …….. you are talking to the wrong guy ………. sorry ………….

          • Oboehner

            That’s the only relevant part of the relationship for the gay men.

          • Jalapeno

            Says who?

            And.. It’s not the gay people making the judgement.

          • Oboehner

            LOL, the DOT had to shut down several waysides in the state because of homosexual male’s activities, like I said…

          • Ronald Carter

            And that means all gay people use them?

          • Oboehner

            That means when a very small percentage causes that much trouble, they have a problem.

          • Ronald Carter

            And why should anyone listen to you when you want to define people only by what they do sexually and nothing else?

          • Oboehner

            Ignoring empirical evidence like the closing of waysides due to homosexual activity.

          • Ronald Carter

            Which all gay people do. Go on, say it. You know you want to, even though it’s totally false.

          • Oboehner

            You should know, your being gay and all, when a very small percentage causes that much trouble, they have a problem.

          • Ronald Carter

            I’m not gay, but I know hate when I hear it.
            So why do you want to punish all for the actions of a few?
            Some people are alcoholics. Does that mean you ban alcohol?

          • Oboehner

            As usual you completely miss the point and yammer down a useless rabbit trail. Troll on.

          • Ronald Carter

            What Is your point? A few waysides get closed down due to a few people getting some kicks which you want to blame all gay people for? This, in your view, makes you a balanced and responsible person whom we should take seriously?

          • Steven Reed

            Even they need to have clean teeth and fresh breath now don’t they?

            yes you do have an interpretation of what the bible says. you are not god and thus when you read it you are coming to it with your assumptions and only giving credit to some of the possible meanings of what was said. yes the bible says way it says but we can still disagree over what it means. case in point the creation account uses the word day yet there is disagreement over if the word day was used to refer to a 24 hour period of time or a longer period of time. both sides reading the same words but coming away with a disagreement over what it means. the same thing is happening here.

          • Amos Moses

            “yes you do have an interpretation of what the bible says.”

            There is no private interpretation of scripture ……….. we are forbidden from adding to it or taking away from it …….. so no …….. and your argument is with Him ……. not those who follow Him …………

          • [email protected]

            so if there in no interpretation how do you account for Christians reading the word day in the creation account and disagreeing over whether it says a 24 hour period of time or a longer period of time?

          • Amos Moses

            i account for it by the fact that they do not believe God/Christ and they suppress the truth in unrighteousness …….. as you do …….. they subtract from scripture ……. and they do not believe God ….

          • [email protected]

            who those who believe in an old earth? in that case you are saying that a majority of the church and a majority of christian denominations are not christian becasue the old earth view is held by more then the young earth view. do you do that on all issues of disagreement within the church? say that if they disagree with you that they do not believe in God/Christ? sounds to me that you are clearly adding to what one must be saved. according to you one must believe in Christ and must also agree with Amos on all issues of theology to be a christian.

          • Amos Moses

            ” in that case you are saying that a majority of the church and a majority of christian denominations are not christian becasue the old earth view is held by more then the young earth view.”

            No, not what i said …………. i said they choose not to believe Christ in that regard …… and they are wrong ………

          • [email protected]

            Ah good then. so you then would agree that two people can disagree over what the bible says on a matter (for example the meaning of the word day in the creation account) and yet still be Christians?

            I would note that it is still not fair to say that they are choosing to not believe Christ becasue that is not what they are doing, rather they are disagreeing on what the text says, but at least now you are clear that they can both still be Christians.

          • Amos Moses

            “so you then would agree that two people can disagree over what the bible says on a matter (for example the meaning of the word day in the creation account) and yet still be Christians?”

            If you cant believe the first ten words of the bible ………. not sure that any of the rest that follows is going to do you any good ……….. you start from a position of calling God/Christ a liar ………….. so it does not look good …..

          • [email protected]

            its NOT about not believing the bible, rather it is about disagreeing over what the meaning of the word is.

            so lets see if we can go with a simple yes or no on this one. can you believe that the word day in the creation account is referring to a period of time longer then 24 hours and still be a christian yes or no?

            can you believe that the word day in the creation account is referring to a period of time longer then 24 hours and still believe the bible and trust in Gods word? yes or no?

          • Amos Moses

            “its NOT about not believing the bible, rather it is about disagreeing over what the meaning of the word is.”

            No ……….. it is about believing Gods word …………

          • [email protected]

            oh so anyone who does not agree with you does not believe in Gods word? nice to know that you have crowned yourself as god. that you have given yourself the power to declare who is and who is not believing in Gods word based on if they agree with you or not. the arrogance there is mindboggling

          • Amos Moses

            “oh so anyone who does not agree with you does not believe in Gods word?”

            Let me fix that for you as you seem to have difficulty parsing ………..

            oh so anyone who does not agree with

            (you) …. this is the part you continue to miss ……… they do not agree WITH GOD ………

            does not believe in Gods word?

          • [email protected]

            YOU are not God. thus if a word can mean more then one thing, for example the word day can mean more then one thing you can not say , no it is this meaning and if you do not agree you disagree with God. this is not to say that both are right, only one is right and we must try to find the truth but YOU do not have the power or authority to dictate that anyone who disagrees with your position disagrees with God. on the flip side if you are wrong does that mean you are disregarding what God says? of course not rather you are trying to get it right and if you get it wrong then you can still be accepting Gods word as best you can.

            to claim that you can perfectly understand Gods word and there is no chance that you are wrong on anything is beyond arrogant nor is it bionically sound. the idea that there is going to be no disagreement on what the bible says is also not realistic or true. we are imperfect beings and so we can error in understanding yet at the same time we can also still do the best we can.

          • Amos Moses

            “YOU are not God.”

            Figured that out all on your own did you …………… and NOT what i said ….. again LEARN TO PARSE …………. Not agreeing with Gods word ……… is not agreeing with God ……… and calling Him a liar ………

          • [email protected]

            and again, I say that my reading of the scripture is right and you say that your reading of the scripture is right. so what should we do? should we refuse to recognize each other as fellow believers becasue of this disagreement? should we accuse each other of not agreeing with God? NO and NO. we should recognize that we are fallible and that we could be wrong and that we must seek the truth about what the scripture means as well as we can as the collective church but that we do not need attack fellow believers or accuse them of turning on God becasue we disagree over what a passage means.

          • Amos Moses

            “I say that my reading of the scripture is right and you say that your reading of the scripture is right.”

            Wrong ………… only Gods reading is right ……….. and if you or i are “interpreting it” ….. that is adding to scripture ………… and it is then NOT scripture …………

          • [email protected]

            Okay well in that case the word day in genesis clearly means a period of time longer then 24 hours and if you disagree with that then you are interpreting it and adding to scripture which is clearly not scripture so clearly we can come to the conclusion that you are not agreeing with God but rather calling Him a liar. I mean there is zero interpretation going on in what I say, just a clear reading of the scripture based on a meaning of the word day. I guess you need to repent of your defiance agasint Gods word.

          • Bob Johnson

            Interpretation, interpretation, oh how are we to interpret Amos’ words. He could have said “God’s” or “Gods’ ”but he said “Gods” so by standard English usage there must be multiple Gods. Why is this important? Because when you read an English Bible translated from Greek that is based of various Middle Eastern languages all you get is one long list of interpretations.

          • Amos Moses

            The only thing that can interpret scripture is scripture …………..

          no I do not know that. it may be hard for you to process but no, everyone does not think the same way that you do on the subject and no people on the other side are not suppressing what they know to be true, rather we just disagree with you and your interpretation of the verses on the matter.

          • Bob Johnson

            If most people felt like Amos, all those companies would not be running ads to alienate their customer base. However, since these ads have been running for seven years, we can assume corporate America is not too concerned about that demographic.

            “ah so you know how I think better then I do? ”

          • Amos Moses

            You have no debate ………….. you are angry at scripture …….. you are angry at God/Christ ….. we do not add toor take away from scripture ……….. it stands as it …….. it requires no interpretation … No ………. “gays” are rarely ……… gay … they know they are in depravity …….. they have a desperate need for everyones approval …….. and you give it to them ….. because you suppress the truth in unrighteousness ….. you lie to yourself ………..

          • [email protected]

            Not at all angry at scripture, not at all angry at God, nor do I add to scripture nor does looking at scripture in its proper historical context count as “adding to it”. yes people can and do differ on how to properly interpret the meaning of the scriptures and this is true on many issues, its is why there is so much theological diversity within the church, No gay people do NOT “know” that we are in depravity, no I do not have a desperate need for everyone’s approval ( I want to change opinions becasue it will make a better world and a christian sexual ethic that does not needlessly turn away gay people, not becasue I need you to like me) glad to correct the record on all of those points.

    I clicked over to watch the ad, a very nice one with a good feel to it. gay people exist and also have teeth so yes, companies are going to include gay people in advertising.

  • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

    Good Christians should boycott Colgate-Palmolive n the likes.
    ……. Ads should be neutral, color-blind, religion-blind, politically-blind n sexual-orientation-blind. Ads is to push sales, n not to push an agenda.

    Fyi, after brushing yr teeth with toothpaste, just spit out the excess, wait for a few minutes b4 rinsing yr mouth with water. This is to let the flouride in the toothpaste enough time to cover n protect the teeth.

    • Jalapeno

      Wouldn’t a sexual-orientation-blind ad occasionally involve gay people?

      If they aren’t picking couples based on their orientation, you’d be just..picking.

      • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

        No, bc Colgate purposely showed their gay ad during “gay pride” month.

        Well, in USA, the majority rules. The LGBTQs r a very small minority at about 3%. The normal straight couples r at about 97%. So, ads should also reflect the majority, in order to achieve marketing success. Cf; the boycott of Target Corp.

        • Jalapeno

          Okay..the comment I replied to talked about being blind to sexual orientation.

          That wouldn’t mean that they don’t pick couples based on their sexual orientation, which should mean that we have one out of fifty couples being gay, right?

          What you’re talking about isn’t being blind to orientation, it’s picking only one.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Maybe, Colgate should also make an ad showing a couple of monkeys smiling n brushing their teeth.

          • Jalapeno

    And yet adults continue to permanently turn away from homosexuality, even after decades of believing the lie they were “born that way”, proving it’s not genetic, but the product of indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse.

    Homosexual behavior is most literally pointed out as a sin, and God has not changed on that regard. But if a person has those inclinations but does not act upon them, does not dwell in lust upon others, but is instead struggling against them to avoid them, then it’s not a sin. It’s just like sinful inclinations of any kind: it’s acting upon it when it becomes a sin.

    And this is what God says about sin and specifically the behavior of homosexuality:

    Romans 1:26-27 ”For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their_lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ”Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [men who willingly take on the part of a “woman” with another man], nor abusers of themselves with mankind [s odomites], (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

    1 Timothy 1:9-10 ”Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10) For_whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind [s odomites], for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;”

    Jude 1:7 ”Even as_Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

    Luke 17:29 ”[Jesus said] But the same day that Lot went out of_Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”

    Matthew 19:4-6 ”And he [Jesus] answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, (5) And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (6) Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

    Jesus made it quite clear God made us male and female so that a man will leave his father and mother (not two fathers, not three mothers and so on) and cleave onto his wife (not his husband and so on).

    The Word of God rebukes us all – even if we all try to say we don’t believe the Bible, the very Word of God will be our judge when we face Him. And God is a righteous judge and will judge us all – not turn a blind eye to our sin. Do not be deceived by the world: it’s God we will have to convince that His word was a lie, not men. What happened in Noah’s day when the entire world rejected God? Did God spare them because there were so many? No – they all perished except for Noah and his family!

    Proverbs 9:10 ”The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

    God spared not His chosen people – we are kidding ourselves if we think He will spare the United States of America if we choose to blatantly turn away from Him.

    Jeremiah 12:17 ”But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.”

    Luke 17:28-30 “So also as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; (29) but the day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from the heaven and destroyed them all. (30) Even so it shall be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”

    Romans 1:18-32 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold [suppress] the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, m urder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

    The entire Bible points out men having_sex with men is an abomination. Likewise woman having_sex with women. It’s not just Paul that pointed it out.

    Genesis 19:4-13 “But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of S odom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them [men wanting to have_sex with men].

    And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing [he offers his daughters to be_raped to keep them from having_sex with another man – shows_rape is not the issue but male on male_sex]; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

    And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

    And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.”

    These two messengers were sent to destroy that place before the event where they tried to_rape these messengers.

    Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

    Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination …”

    Even cross-dressing is an abomination:

    Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

    Deuteronomy 23:17 “There shall be no_whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a s odomite of the sons of Israel.”

    1 Kings 22:46 “And the remnant of the s odomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.”

    1 Kings 15:11-12 “And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the s odomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.”

    2 Kings 23:7 “And he brake down the houses of the s odomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.”

    Ezekiel 16:49-50 “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister S odom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.”

    And the “pride” parades about homosexuality are more of the same.

    Matthew 19:4-5 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”

    Not father and father. Not mother and mother. Not his husband.

    And only two people of opposite gender can become “one flesh”.

    Live forever, people – not temporarily only to be cast out for living for the things of this world.

    May God/Jesus Christ be glorified!

      you start of with the premise that people turn away from homosexuality or in other words that sexual orientation change efforts or SOCE works. Well this is what we do know the practice.

      #1 it is a small and fringe effort practiced by very few and participated in by very few.

      #2 for those who have participated in SOCE the vast majority report that it did not work at all for them and failed to bring about any change.

      #3 for the minority who do report change most find that the change is only temporary and latter speak out agasint the practice. others admit that it helped them change their behavior but not the underlying sexual orientation.

      #4 this leaves us with a very very small handful who claim that it worked and did change their orientation. but out of this group nearly all work in the ex-gay industry in some way and this make their living off the claim that ex-gay therapy works.

      so even if those few stories of full change are believed the best case scenario is that it only works in a tiny percent of all cases. but given all the evidence agasint the practice and the high conflict of interest in the few cases we do have that claim it worked it is highly likely that it does not work at all. Again this brings us to the point that if homosexuality is indeed a sin then it is the action, not the orientation. the orientation is a natural part of who people are, just like being heterosexual nor is it something that people can just go and change. (I tried both prayer and SOCE to stop being gay before coming to the realization that sexual orientation is just part of who people are and that SOCE is a fraud.

      secondly no, homosexuality is not the product of indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse. sexual orientation is not a choice so it is not something that you can be “indoctrinated into. and there is no evidence to support the contention that sexual orientation is caused by abuse. again it is a natural variation of sexuality just like heterosexuality.

      • Reason2012

        // you start of with the premise that people turn away from homosexuality or in other words that sexual orientation change efforts or SOCE works. //
        It’s not an orientation, any more than women being attracted to abusive men is an orientation, or a man being attracted to 17 year olds, or 16 year olds is an orientation.

        // #1 it is a small and fringe effort practiced by very few and participated in by very few. //
        It’s not an ‘effort’ – it’s a fact that a growing number of people permanently turn away from it on their own even after decades of believing the lie people are ‘born that way’.

        // #2 for those who have participated in SOCE the vast majority report that it did not work at all for them and failed to bring about any change. //
        Please cite credible statistical study of your claim: all those who have turned away from it that 80%+ (vast majority) instead went back. Then find 10 ex-gay testimonies and find 8 of them with testimonies that they later “went back”.

        // #3 for the minority who do report change most find that the change is only temporary and latter speak out agasint the practice. //
        It’s not a “practice” – the individuals on their own permanently turned away from it.

        // others admit that it helped them change their behavior but not the underlying sexual orientation.//
        So if a man acts like a woman, he’s still a man? Or does this logic not apply to a man believing he’s a woman, denying biological fact he’s a man, which would make it selective argument based on which side of the coin activists are currently arguing?

        // #4 this leaves us with a very very small handful who claim that it worked and did change their orientation. //
        If it was genetic, it would never work.

        // but out of this group nearly all work in the ex-gay industry in some way and this make their living off the claim that ex-gay therapy works. //
        Smear the reputation of those who overcome it.
        Please cite the credible statistical study to back this up: count of the total number of people who have turned away from it, where 90%+ percent (nearly all according to you) now “get rich off of the claim that ex-gay therapy works”

        // so even if those few stories of full change are believed the best case scenario is that it only works in a tiny percent of all cases. //
        Not true unless you can back it up with statistical studies that back up each aspect of what you claimed to now claim “tiny percent” here.

        // secondly no, homosexuality is not the product of indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse. sexual orientation is not a choice so it is not something that you can be “indoctrinated into. //
        That homosexual men admit to being molested by other men when they were young shows otherwise. Google and look on youtube “homosexual admit to being molested” and see claims of being molested and claims of them molesting other young people.
        It shows that this is what a decent percent of homosexuals do: molest young boys. And when young people are molested (homosexual molestation or heterosexual molestation) facts show there too many grow up having attractions to young people, hence homosexuals molesting young boys in and of itself shows they were likely molested as well when young.

          Yes homosexuality is an orientation, it is not a choice or a disorder, rather it is a normal and natural variation of human sexuality. And no the ex-gay movement is anything but growing. If anything there are more people who used to run ex-gay groups who now speak out against the effort then people who still practice it. From religious tolerance “From the available data, four studies reported a “success” rate during conversion therapy of 0.4%, 0.0%, 0.5 and 0.04%. That is, conversion therapy has a failure rate in excess of 99.5% during each study.” If your looking for information on the problems with SOCE the NCLR #bornperfect campaign has amassed a large amount of information. If it was genetic it is conceivable that in a few rare cases some level of change could happen. The standard is not to show that there is no one who has ever claimed that it worked but rather that it fails in the vast majority of the time and there is good reason to be highly skeptical of the few people who claim that it did work for them.

          And yes some gay men were sexually abused when they were minors and some sexually abuse minors. This does NOT mean that being abused caused them to be gay. It is frankly an absurd jump to go from some people saying they were abused to then claim that that speaks for the experience of most gay people. The fact is that some heterosexuals were also sexually abused as minors and sexually abuse minors. This does not mean that sexual abuse causes heterosexuality or that heterosexuals as a group sexually abuse minors.

      • Reason2012

        And please explain this hypocrisy as well:

        So apparently if a person does not want those same-sex attractions anymore, that’s too bad, because in spite of their feelings they can’t change genetic facts, like the genetic fact they’re supposedly homosexual.

        But, in complete contradiction: if a man doesn’t want to be a man anymore, that’s supposedly fine – they are now free to ignore genetic facts, like the genetic fact they’re male, and mutilate their body to get in line with the REAL truth: their feelings.

        So which is it? Why is the argument apparently genetics trump feelings if you’re into homosexuality, but if you’re into transgenderism, it’s now genetics that take a back seat to feelings?

        • [email protected]

          two different conversation I am talking about issues related to sexual orientation, not gender identity. so you will need to find someone else to answer that question for you becasue gender identity is not an area I specialize in.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          There is no contradiction. Gay people can’t fight their feelings of attraction to members of the same sex and transgender people can’t fight their feelings of identification with the opposite sex.

          Both groups are genetically and neurologically disposed to their orientations.

          • Reason2012

            Except you ignore one glaring flaw in your claim:
            We’re talking about people whose feelings are that they’re no longer homosexual, and on their own they have permanently turned away from it..

            Activists will say it doesn’t matter (just as you just did) because their feelings supposedly do not override the supposed genetic “fact” that they are homosexual.

            So there they are saying feelings do not trump their genetics.

            Yet then when it comes to transgender, now they say forget genetics – the real truth is your feelings.

            Behold the lies of the activists using opposing arguments to promote each perversion. And the more people that realize this, the more will realize it’s just a dishonest agenda to force feed perversion as being normal in America.

    It’s too bad that almost always an argument breaks out on here. As Christians we should be showing love to one another. That doesn’t mean tolerate sin but it is also not necessary to speak in a hateful way. People that profess christianity need to be more careful how they represent Christ.

    • TheBottomline4This

      Each side needs to watch what they say.
      Defending truth is not pretty sometimes. I try not to get “nasty”. It’s hard depending on what kind of history I have with certain ones. That’s not an excuse, just an explanation.
      They are not coming here to learn and are not open to the truth. In all my dealings online no matter the issue, I have never once had someone say, you know what…that makes sense…I see where I am wrong, and then have a turnaround on an issue.
      Dealing with someone online is only so helpful. Talking to people face to face is best, but usually that is more rare these days. What we share may when they are alone give them something to think about. It may not be today or next week or even next year, but at some point something that was shared may help in them seeing the truth and turning around on an issue.

  • ComeOnPeople!

    Written by Homosexuality explained …. In all of nature, there exist male and female. Birds, hawks, hummingbirds, ducks, owls and all aviary life: male and female. Dogs, cats, horses, bears, mice, squirrels, and all mammals: male and female. Fish, sharks, water snakes, lobsters, piranha, gold fish, and all aquatic life: male and female. Over 6,000 species of insects and every single last one of them, male and female. That is right! Flies, bees, ants, ladybugs, spiders, and beetles: All come in both male and female. Plants are also male and female. If a plant has both male and female parts, please notice that they DO have BOTH parts!! In such cases, the plants have organs that are male, and organs that are female. Note this, because it’s important.

    Male and female in all of nature means DESIGN. Only the rebellious will fail to see the forest past the trees. This is also spoken of in Romans 1. “Their foolish heart was darkened…professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” Male and female means design.

    The design is male and female and in all of nature. The male has a sexual organ to give (+) and the female has a sexual organ to receive (-). That is design. One was designed to fit into the other. In other words, man had a design contrived by a Designer/God. So it is the same with people, animals, etc. It is obvious to all but the rebellious that humans were so fashioned. Some will still argue the point, but I would like to label their rebellion as the cause of their blindness. It’s not wisdom. In other words, people who want to sin must sear their conscience against Christianity. Therefore, they have the knowledge, but do not obey it, and fight against it and against wisdom.

    The male organ is built by God to give into the female organ, built for that purpose. To engage in otherwise is an affront to God. Positive is made to repel positive and negative is made to repel negative. This is science. Do you know what magnetism is? How does light work? How do our charged surroundings work? Our very world works on the principle that male and male repel. Female and female repel. Male and female attract. Even the electricity in your house makes mention that the male prong plugs into the female outlet. In all of nature, positive repels positive and negative repels negative, but the opposites attract…except when it comes to homosexuals. Why is this? Rebellion!

    Homosexuality is not natural, and it deviates from GOD’S OBVIOUS DESIGN. If the laws of nature started mimicking homosexuality, and positives were attracted to positives, the entire universe would collapse! I’m showing you that male and female is a concept that permeates everything we are, even to the way charged particles operate! It is the Law, established by the all-knowing Lawgiver.

    Men having sex with men means positive with positive (male organ to male organ), and where is the organ built to receive? Women having sex with women means negative with negative (female organ with female organ), and where is the organ to give? Do you see this? It doesn’t matter how many degrees a person may have. To deny this simple wisdom that even a child can understand, is rebellion. Rebellion is the root to blindness to God and His obvious principles.

    A man with a man is confusion. A woman with a woman is confusion. There is no organ built for it. No children can come of such unions, unless man plays scientist in these matters. No life comes from homosexuality; it is lifeless. It can bring forth no children. It also makes the homosexual lifeless. It is not in line with life-after-death (according to scripture, homosexuals do not go to heaven…it’s a blanket statement). Isn’t it odd, that if two males are together, one inevitably becomes a female: female mannerisms, speech, etc. If two females, one of the two takes on masculine facial features as if on testosterone. Is this, too, a mark of judgment? A better way to look at this is: if you tell God no, you inevitably tell the devil yes.

    As far as homosexuality in nature, you’d have to show me a good percentage, relational to man’s dilemma, in each specie. Show me 750,000 “gay” dogs. Show me a million “gay” cats. With insects, the numbers would have to be astronomical. How about a few million gay beetles? Please, wake up and see that this is foolishness. It’s simple logic of the heart. Argue with a radical homosexual and you’ll plainly see, this really boils down to rebellion. Moral fiber has been etched away from most Americans. I fear that America is headed for a great peril.

    Because homosexual “marriage” does not lead to legalized pedophilia and beastiality …………… so much for that faulty lie and bit of illogic ………… Canada gets it LEFT AGAIN ………… SCRIPTURE proven right AGAIN ………………

    Canada’s highest court has just ruled that some sex acts between humans and animals are legal.
    In a quixotic ruling, the country’s high court ruled that a man who was on trial for raping and sexually exploiting his own daughters wasn’t guilty of “bestiality.” The man reportedly, “smeared peanut butter on the genitals of his victims and had the family dog lick it off while he videotaped the act.”

    The convicted man took his case to the Canadian Supreme Court, demanding that the bestiality charge be nullified. In the end, the court agreed.

    Target’s annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday focused heavily on the company’s policy change allowing men who identify as women to use the women’s restroom. Many shareholders reportedly expressed their displeasure with the policy change and at least one shareholder publicly questioned whether the policy change is responsible for the company’s plummeting stock prices.
    Multiple reports of the shareholders meeting noted that Target CEO Brian Cornell refused to say whether he believed those who opposed the policy change are “bigots.” That question was asked by shareholder Justin Danhof, director of the Free Enterprise Project.
    Instead of answering the question, Danhof told the Washington Times, Cornell “gave a vacuous statement on, ‘We believe in diversity, we believe in inclusion, and everyone should feel safe in our stores.’”
    “‘Support inclusivity, support inclusion’ – it means nothing. It’s meaningless,” he told the Times. “Especially in response to questions asked very pointedly about do you think these people are bigots. And my impression is that of course he does.”

    I voiced my opinion. They thanked me for my concern. I requested they stay with wholesomeness and tradition and not get into politics. If necessary, just show one parent and on child. Then no one will know whether the one parent is a widow, widower, gay, whatever. And the child? Like the ‘parent’, no one will know if nor out of wedlock, adopted, has one mom and one dad or 2 moms or 2 dads.

    Commercials should inform on the quality and benefits of a particular product, not make political statements or be offensive.
