    You shouldn't be using your phone while driving anyway. What about voice control?

    Swiping to skip tracks on the old music player took as much attention away from the road as turning the volume knob on the car radio or adjusting the A/C fan.

    I hate the Xbox music player. You can't swipe to skip tracks anymore. That was one of the best features WP had going for it. It was great for skipping tracks while driving because you didn't have to press tiny buttons. Microsoft just made using a WP while driving more dangerous. Good job.

  • Microsoft should open-source Windows XP

    Or as OpenSSL has just proved, being Open Sauce means you can read the source code and make it awesome and secure, but nobody actually does.

    And as ReactOS has shown, an open-sauce clone of Windows 2000 gathers basically zero interest from the open source community or from users at large, so it seems a little bit odd to assume that open saucing XP would magically change that.

    Open sauce? LOL! That's exactly the way I imagine chowdaheads would pronounce it.

    *snip*no one here is hating on gays. Your over sensitive. 

    Uh, he didn't claim otherwise. That's quite a leap for you to go from "in your view, it's cool to hate on gays" to "you hate gays".

    @dahat: Yeah, keep linking to posts in this thread as if that's adding to anything. Dodge, dodge, dodge.

    Unless Eich actually said something to the effect of what you described regarding... any group... your attempted analogy doesn't hold much relevance.

    Nice dodge. This is the second time you dismissed a hypothetical as "implausible" or "irrelevant". Yet you boasted several times about how you'd defend the KKK or NAMBLA's right to speak at some imaginary event you'd actually give a rat's * about. It's pretty damn easy to brag about how principled you are when you get to pick and choose when you apply your principles.

    I personally have never considered buttsecks as an abomination. That is what the bible says. My personal views regarding gay sex and the bible have not been shared. 

    So the answer to my original question:

    Are you saying Christians are free to pick and choose which part of the Bible they follow?

    is "yes". That's all you had to say. I didn't need the Bible lesson.

    *snip*What, do you still want them killing people? I think its a good thing that the old testament message differs from the new testament message. 

    No, I'd prefer they shitcan the entire thing. But at the very least shitcan all of Leviticus 20:13. If you feel guys having buttsecks with each other doesn't warrant death, neither should it be considered an "abomination".

    When Christ says to love your neighbor I don't think killing them is what he had in mind. I have never met a Christian who promotes the killing of gays just as I have never met an American who promotes slavery.

    Even Mormons, one of the leading proponents against gay marriage don't think you should kill gays. In fact Mormons invite gays to attend their church. You can be gay and still be a Mormon with all the rights and traditions that go with it. You just cant have gay sex. Sex is where they draw the line. The rhetoric for the Mormon church has softened over the years. A gay person can hold leader ship roles with in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later day Saints (the official church name).

    I have seen a gradual shift in how they treat and encourage some one with same sex attraction. I suspect they will soften even more over time. But this kind of thing takes years. Glassier speed. People have to be patient with one another. On both sides. It is something I see very little of. As this episode with Brandan Eich exemplifies.

    The brilliant physicist Max Planck once said. "A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it." This holds true for many belief systems. 

    That sounds like really long-winded way of saying it's OK for Christians to disregard parts of the Bible. Thanks for confirming what I suspected.
