    ...unless there's hate.

    Inside a backfired PR stunt:

    As the great Paul Harvey once pointed out...

    If we are all God's children, what would make people think He, our Father, is going to favor one child or group of children over the other?

    “These trainings address line-up times, check-in locations, our moment of silence, dispersal activity, NYPD safety policies, attire and vehicle/sound permits,” Studinski says. “It is imperative that group leaders know this information.”

    How dare they try to shove their gay agenda down his throat like that!

    Let's lay this all out on the table:

    -- This guy is mad because gay people complained about being banned from the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

    -- Gay people fought, unsuccessfully, to change the rules so they'd be allowed to participate in the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

    -- The ruling was that private parades are allowed to make and enforce their own rules, no matter how discriminatory.

    -- Gay people allow this guy to participate in a Pride Day parade, for blatant attention-whoring reasons, if he abides by rules they made and enforce, which are in no way discriminatory.

    -- All of the above = War on Catholics™.

    Do I have all that correct?

    That's an awfully silly argument, no? It's not about favoring a group but if God has expectations and demands about the way we act, wouldn't it make sense that he would have an interest in whether we listen? I have kids, and I have no favorites but I certainly care whether on not they follow my rules.

    Where are these rules written? Everyone follows the same rule book? Who wrote the rules?

    The text of what he said. I like this more than anything I have heard or read about religion or God. It also makes the most sense to me.

    No one is saying you need to bind yourself by them, but you seem to be arguing that others are somehow inconsistent or irrational when they aren't. They believe that God wrote the rules. You don't? OK, but that's not a winning argument.

    Because quite a few of us grew up with the knowledge that our parents did in fact have favourite children, and children they more or less tolerated, and children they just couldn't stand.

    It's only natural that people who grew up like that would, consciously or not, apply the same twisted logic to society.

    You have told your kids your rules. You do not tell other children to obey your rules.
    You have your belief that G-d has certain expectations and demands on the way you act. G-d has provided me with a different set.

    BTW, G-d told me to tell you that you are wrong and he's pissed.
