Upfront, I mean NO disrespect.  This thread is supposed to ask a question and get you guys to think.

 

In light of certain recent thread posts, I wanted to make this post about my pride in the movie franchise of Cars from Pixar.

 

Cars is my favorite movie of all times.  Yes, beating Httyd.  Httyd is a very close second.

 

Cars 2 was good too, but tried to do more than what the original idea of Cars and their characters are about.

 

Now, Cars 3 on the other hand, looks to be a very good story and has a lot of potential.

 

It comes out June 16th.

 

Reading comments on YouTube and watching videos, everybody thinks this will finally be the Cars movie that everyone will want to see.  Even those that didn't like the first two, think Cars 3 is going to be a very good Pixar movie.

 

If you haven't checked out any of the Cars 3 trailers, I highly recommend that you do.

 

Does anyone else like Cars as much as I do?

 

---------

 

Now, to the real reason, I posted this thread.

 

First, this is about the Pride Thread and the Christian Pride Thread.

 

Some on both sides are telling the other side that they can't post a pride thread because they disagree with them.

 

Now, I am a Christian.  I do not force the Bible on anyone.  When I talk to anybody that involves something about the Bible directly or indirectly, I defend or support the Bible in whatever situation I find myself in.  I give verses to show that I just don't tell you want the Bible says, I show you what the Bible says.

 

If the Pride Thread says the Christian Pride Thread shouldn't have been made because they disagree with you...

 

With the same logic, I believe, If you disagree with me that the first Cars movie was an awesome movie with a great storyline, does this mean I shouldn't have made this thread because it is showing off my pride for something that you disagree with.

 

If you are fine with me making a pride thread about my favorite movie, what makes making a Christian Thread so different?

 

If you allow certain subjects to be posted but not other subjects like LBGT+ and Bible threads, are you not being hypocritical?  Correct me if you think I am wrong.

 

If you want to be able to create threads about the LBGT+ community, then every community in every imaginable subject should be able to make a thread on this forum if they want to.

 

If you disagree with them, then either ignore the post or voice your opinion.  Once you voice your opinion though and they ask you to leave, you told them what you wanted to say, so then leave out of respect for the request.  Anything further to anyone involved should be done in pm or a new thread devoted to talking about that.  Best way is pm so that others are not annoyed for seeing the same thread up all the time.  But with the same token, are any of you tried of seeing any of the forum games constantly up on the Active Forum Topics?  Most of you would probably answer no.  Why?  Because you either enjoy them or don't mind seeing them up there.  When the subject gets to the nitty gritty and serious topics, then some people say that shouldn't belong here.  If it is done correctly and each side is showing respect, then it can be done.  There is a right way and a wrong way of doing anything.

 

If the LBGT+ community wants to be treated equally with regards to having their freedoms, then also the Christian community be given the freedoms to practice their religion.

 

Because if you all want to be fair, being fair is letting all do what they want.  If you pick and choose what people should or shouldn't do, you are not being fair.

 

I can create any thread I want to create, so long as the terms and conditions of this forum allows me to.  We all agreed to these terms and conditions when we signed up.  But who really has read the whole thing and knows what they can and cannot do?

 

You can't tell me I can't make a new Christian thread.

 

I can't tell you that you can't make a LBGT+ thread.

 

If you don't want me to do the latter, you can't make me do the former.

 

Thoughts?

When we all die, all of us will know who was right and who was wrong.  This debate will be resolved some day.

Phoebe ate my subject...

I agree with a lot of these points. However, I think that what is causing so much upset here, is that Pride Month is for the LGBTQ+ community, a minority group that is oppressed all the time. People are just upset about someone claiming that it is Christian Pride Month, because there is no such thing, and Christians are a majority group that do not need a month to celebrate. You are allowed to be proud of your religion all the time, as it's nothing to be ashamed of, and neither is sexuality, but since we are a minority, it is our right to have a month to celebrate.

 

I believe in tolerance and open-mindedness. I say, let people do whatever they want unless someone is being hurt by it.

Art of Phoebe done by xXSadieKaneXx

 

Name: Ogmundr (Icelandic name meaning awe-inspiring, brave, strong)

Gender: male

Backstory/Description: Ogmundr is brave, fierce, and clever, but also just a big lovable dragon who enjoys cuddling up with friends, both human and dragon. I met him when I was out for a flight with Phoebe, my Sand Wraith. We'd landed in a forest because Phoebe's wings were tired, but she began acting strange not too long after landing. She was hopping around and sniffing the ground, seeking out some sort of trail. She took off into the woods without me, and there didn't seem to be anything to do but follow her. She led me to a very small baby Thornridge on the forest floor. It looked like he had broken a leg, and I approached cautiously so as not to scare him. I talked softly to him, and soon he allowed me to pet him. I looked around for any sign of a nest or a mother Thornridge, but he appeared to be alone.

 

After some deliberation on my part and urging on Pheobe's we took him with us and nursed him back to health. His leg healed really well and he was running around and playing like any normal dragon his age. While taking care of him, I'd often return to the forest where I found him and search for any signs of a family, but never found any. He'd probably been abandoned because of his size. I decided that I was going to keep and train him, and I decided to name him Ogmundr because he lived and grew despite the odds working against him.

 

Ogmundr has become really good friends with Phoebe and I often find them curled up with each other after a long day. I've even woken up to find him trying to sleep on top of me! He has a tendency to steal my things to use as toys, but he makes sure to return them after, though it doesn't make much difference because they've been destroyed by his rough playing. I've faced Dragon Hunters a few times with Ogmundr, and he's one of the fiercest fighters I know. We've become really great friends, and I'm glad I was able to save him.

I feel apart of the

I feel apart of the minority as a Christian.  As I have said, just because someone says they are a Christian, doesn't make them a Christian.  Do they obey the Bible?  Do they act as Christ did?  People can say a lot of things.  Talk the talk and walk the walk.  They say they are Christians, and I know a lot of people like this, but when I sit down and study some things out or just talk to them about certain subjects, they do not agree with the Bible.  They may not say they disagree with the Bible out loud, but their actions say otherwise.  If someone says they are a Christian, yet curses, they are disobeying the Bible.  If someone says they are a Christian, yet only goes to assemble on the Lord's day only at Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter) and Christmas, they are disobeying the Bible.  Christians are supposed to gather every first day of the week, Sunday, and part take of the Lord's Supper.  Then throughout the week study the Bible and do as the Bible says.  If they only go twice a year, are they truly practicing Christians?

 

Finding people that say they are Christians, think like Christians, and act like Christians, is rare thing to find.  Compared to the rest of the populous of the world, finding people like this is quite rare.

Yes, Christians are the majority, but why are there more than one denomination out there?  Through my studies of the Bible I found this:

Ephesians 4:4-6   4 There is one body and one Spirit- just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call-  5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism,  6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 

 

If there is one faith, why are there multiple people in multiple denominations believing in different things and often disagreeing with other denominations?

 

If you know what to look for when someone says they are a Christians, more often than not which is sad to me, they'll prove they are not a Christian just by what they think or do.  And even more often, they think they are doing right and won't stop to think what they are doing and check with the Bible to make sure they are Christians.

I like Cars. I actually love

I like Cars. I actually love pretty much all animation movies and give them all a chance, and I do like Cars and want to see Cars 3. I've seen the other two. The first was definately better than the second. I believe the second movie was just because of the popularity Mater. They were just pandering to that crowd. The third one looks to be much more important to the story. I like the second movie, but it's not very important.

 

I've seen both threads. They both have a right to be up. It's a public forum and you can post whatever you want (in relation to the rules here). However, the context of why the Christian Pride Month thread was posted is important. Considering that Christians are generally against LGBT+ people, Pride Month is relevant right now, and the CPM thread was posted only AFTER the Pride Month thread was posted...it looks like the CPM thread was made in retaliation and it looks disrespectful. Even if it wasn't, to others it looks awfully suspcious.

 

You're free to believe in whatever you want as long as it doesn't hurt other people and you're free to post whatever you want here as long as it doesn't break the rules. The threads are obviously fine here and I hope it was just a coincidence, but to me it just doesn't look like it.

Another reason they also made

Another reason they also made another Cars movie is that of merchandising.  I haven't researched it yet, but I thought I heard the Cars franchise is the biggest selling merchandise of any Disney or Pixar movie ever.  If they didn't make the movie to make up for the second and to paint the Cars franchise in a better light, then they did it to cash in on the money to be made.  I believe Pixar did the former, but Disney as most of the time wants to do the latter.

 

The OP of the CPM thread could have handled creating that thread a hundred fold better.  And the way I have read the OP and her recurring replies, are being spiteful and disrespectful.  If someone is trying to win someone over, the last thing you want to do is disrespect them.  If you do, then it will be more difficult to win them over now because they will not listen to you.

 

The intentions of a true Christian is never to hurt anybody.

If you like Cars so much, why is your profile picture of Toothless?? CAST OUT THE HYPOCRITE!

 

XD Seriously though, you make some excellent points here. I agree 100% with this.

 

I do think it may be worthwhile to point out that the LGBT+ are upset not because Shamara's thread supports an opposing viewpoint, but because to them it came across as a mockery of their thread.

XD   Do you not see the giant

XD

 

Do you not see the giant picture of Mater I designed in my signature?

 

Since this is a Httyd forum, I have a Httyd theme profile pic.  Plus, it reminds me of someone.  Not to mention, when I pick a name at the start, I usually keep it forever.  Example: I created an email address exclusively to play Google Chrome Angry Birds.  But in my haste to play the game I spelled the email address: awsomeangrybrids

I forgot the first "e" in awsome and switched the "r" and the "i" in birds.  Whatever I have as my username and I make a mistake like this, I just keep it because it made the username unique.

 

One of the main reasons I have the picture is because I use it as my profile pic on several other sites, forums, and games.  I also use my DrumsOfBerk handle on a lot of things.  So, if I have friends on other platforms and see the picture or my handle, they will recognize me.... Because if I were ever to become famous, my friends I made when I was not famous would recognize my picture or my handle and say, "I know that guy."  XD

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

I know what the difference is. It's because the same person who made the Christian pride thread invaded the other thread first and then right after they were told off they made their thread. While I'm sure a few sensitive people would have been irritated anyway (it's the internet after all) it would not have been taken as NEARLY the insult it was taken as if they had not invaded the LGBT thread right before making theres. The timing is what made it as big a stink as it turned into.
