Fine as long as you are not in contact with others.

Funny you typed that I drank a fair bit last night so have let a few rip today. I live alone though.

Hmm I think I agree.

I agree but sometimes you should give a reason.

That is spelled out in Genesis. The Bible calls on us to be good stewards of animals.

YES! The Bible specifically says homosexual sex acts are to be punished by death. The Bible specifically condemns homosexual sex acts in 7 places.

Correct. My now thankfully deceased parents were upset that I wouldn't go to my Uncle's (nice guy) for Dec.25.

The Bible mentions fasting of course. I tried it but I get too faint I weigh over 225 pounds. One deceased relative on my Mom's side did a 40 day fast once and credited it with his good health for the rest of his life. this guy posts in the roman-catholic ng as HeartDocAndrew hunger is his big thing Wonderfully Hungry.

100% agree. Doing the right thing or obeying the law or Bible sometimes requires it.
