To say I hate you or even better to make the claim on someones behalf will almost always bring up emotions of haterd back. Not in my case, but in many. If you don't believe me go into a jail and say I hate convicts and see what happens. then say I love them and see what happens. Or any social group of people. gays, blacks, cristians muslims etc... Am I really out of line here, because I don't understand why people can't see it's potential harm, or offense. So If I said God hates you it carries the same emotional response as if I said God loves you. No. One by nature can't be offensive, one can. we keep getting off the point that my opinion was just an opinion as was there's.
Go to a mosque in Afghanistan and say god loves christians. Yes some will be offended. Go to a conservative Baptist church in Alabama and say god loves homosexuals. Some will be offended. Using god loves can be equally offensive as god hates.

You or anyone else that may get offended by anyone in sf has the ability to ignore anyone and no longer see any of their posts. You asked wouldn't it be nice if i could come here and not be exposed to others offensive beliefs? (or something to that effect) the reality is you can with the aid of the ignore feature.

And ill quickly pass on saying I love u to a bunch of guys that have been locked away for a long time.....lol. they might fine me kinda purrrrrrty

So now I'm self righteous becauseI retaliated to a personal attack?!? Funny stuff. I said you were being thin-skinned about a couple of general quotes/phrases, not about personal attacks upon yourself. You're damn right I'm going to respond to a personal attack on my intelligence and I did it in kind which you appear to have taken issue with, so I guess that proves you DO have thin-skin. I really don't care what you think of me and, no, I don't want to be your friend. Just because I said nothing you say bothers me does not mean I'd like to chum around with you. That's a really silly conclusion.

Some people need to "sack up" and quit whining over words. I don't care if it hurts your wittle feewings. Go to the Sesame Street forum and brush up on your addition with The Count if you don't want to be offended with words. It seems to be much more your speed.
I'll just refer you again to the above quote by you.

(by this we shouldn't care if we hurt feeling so the "hostility" of the words as you put it shouldn't matter)

Do i need to keep going back and retrieving your own words because you don't apply your owh rules to youself??
You said that the people that do the above are self righteous thin-skinned people so again by your view of things YES. BY MINE... NO!!! If you would calm down enough to think it through you would see our whole dialogue has been because you applied the above to me, thus I'm thin-skinned, and self-righteous. And distinctly made that claim about me. That's not my worldview. So No.. I don't think anything about you, I don't even know you. So lighten up a little. Maybe we can meet at a game and have a beverage, or you can even knock me out, if it will make you feel better. Enjoy the game!

Great point about the Mosque, but we know that in the Mosque envirnment it would carry a negative aspect. So you got me there, but that's why we wouldn't do it. we know that potentially it could carry a very negative response. To not care is one thing, but then to be surprised when someone reacts is another. As for the Baptists and homosexuals well that is simply unexplainable.As well as unjustifiable

I do volunteer in the prisons, and I do say I love them, now you got me worried ENJOY THE GAME!!
