Jedi views on homosexuality

Re: Jedi views on homosexuality 02 May 2012 04:03 #58645

My 2 cents on this would have to be:

I no longer believe that the United States, or possibly any other country, creates laws specifically for unity, general safety, and morality. Whether it be against homosexuality, or something else harmless, the government seems to exceed expectations on making laws just to simply--well, make laws!

And on the note of YthanH, I agree completely. Another good example is The bible was translated into English from Hebrew way before we even had a complete grasp on original hebrew. They have since corrected a few things but not all is complete, and not all is original.

@ bornofosiris: You're right. The Bible has been changed and things have been forged by peolpe many times, so (in my opinion) not every thing that's in the bible should be trusted, such as the views on homosexuality. No offence intended to any "bible-lovers".
Show compassion to all living beings.
Live to serve life.

On the Bible but, the one we normally read now was translated from Greek normally which was how it was written and some hebrew and there are a lot of miss-translations in it so it is possible that Jesus was gay or had a relationship with Mary just depends which translation you take and into how of it you read

A great argument against all those that quote the Bible (Old Testament) when discriminating.

To all Christians opposing homosexuality: Jesus clearly stated, that there are no Commandments greater than the Two Commandments of Love. You're not exactly loving your fellow men by hating them, do you?

@akkarin

What I said before about age of consent, I am merely trying not to encourage breaking Laws that for the most part, do protect the people without taking away a disproportinate amount of freedom. There can be no arguement that laws about legal age of consent do more bad than good. Do I think there should be a way to work around them whento individuals do consent with at least a decent idea of what they are getting into, yes. Legitimate protection good, tyranny bad.
Peace be with you.

Also, keep being awesome.

    • From my point of view, it could be clever BS. I have never witnessed magical powers. And, I don't really care to. It doesn't really interest me because I don't believe it's possible. However, regardless of my view, it COULD be possible. So, I keep an open mind, but I also don't seek it. I'm only interested in what was given to me in my life.

    • So, I really hate exercise.. (Last post by Luthien)
    • I also hate running. In fact, one of the few times I do, it's because of military testing requirements. Other than that, I scarcely run. I've found that high-intensity, short-timed workout sessions do many things for me that running doesn't, including: - None of the workouts last more than 30 minutes (20 minutes, on average). - Strength and endurance increases. - Most of the exercises are bodyweight (lower impact on joints). - End up feeling beat, yet refreshed. - Only three workouts per week. - Metabolism gets a boost. - Wastes less time; more time for rest and recovery (my favorite). Of course, I can only vouch for this as anecdotal, since not everybody's body functions in the same capacity. I'll just say that I was doing poorly, fitness-wise (Satisfactory, nearly Unsatisfactory for my fitness test), and after three months of focused intensity, I got an Excellent rating for my next fitness test; no running involved. Take it as you will. I hope this helps. If you need any ideas for workouts, let me know. :)
    • Free Artwork Services (Last post by Cayce)
    • Hey all, I greatly enjoy image maniuplation, cleanup, and re-drawing. It's part of my current job, and I love taking low resolution images and making them crystal clear again. Because of this, I thought I'd offer my services for free to all Temple members! Are you working on a new meditation video and you need a crisp and clear logo created from an amazing, but fuzzy logo you found ages ago? Did you need a logo for a journal or project converted into a vectored image which can be scaled to any size while being crisp and clear? I'll take a shot at it for you! ~ Artwork Services ~ 1. Image Up-scaling / Enlargement. This is TRUE up-scaling. Example 1 (Pre): [image] Example 2 (Post): [image] 2. Converting filetypes. Any type of graphics file converted to any format you need. For example, .JPG to .PDF. 3. Converting rastered images to vectorized images. Example 1 (Pre, Rastered): [image] Example 2 (Post, Vectored): [image] 4. Miscellaneous adjustments. Color balancing, enhancement, desaturation, etc. Just ask! All requests and final versions of artwork will be posted here for record keeping, unless you request a private alteration, which I'm still happy to provide. Thanks for reading, let me know if I can be of assistance! [image]
    • Meditation (Last post by Cayce)
    • Whenever I can is honestly the best answer. Still don't have a set schedule, as I'm all around the place these days. But, I make time. Even if I book a meeting room at work for 15-30 mins, and sit inside, there's always a bit of time in your day for it. Lately I've been using the MHK Mindfullness and Guided Meditation app (free), as it has short, very thought out meditations that work extremely well for me. As for position, it depends on my mental state. If I'm wide awake, or energetic, I'll close my eyes and sit lotus in a chair/against a wall. If I'm tired though, I keep my eyes half open, in a relaxed state, same poses.

They might not have the social skills yet but i would rather know what they have to say than to deal with some peoples arrogant silence , and how exactly do you feel "connected" more? I always thought the whole idea of connectivity is to accept eachother as we are even if we dont agree ? Ah well ,...you get the picture May the Force be with you ALL ( not just the ones who say what we want to hear ;) ) * wishes she was not so good with people sometimes loll *
