I think the issue is one of privacy: In a highly bigoted society such as ours, questions involving more than what is outwardly apparent (even if erronious) may be touchy.

Good to know.

My only beef is with the below:
Metal_Inside wrote:If the pirates are more than a month in the open sea and there aren't wenches on board one of the crew members is designed as "the bride". It's the only thing Babilonian ancient scripts mention about homosexuality, so I suppose in any other case his Noodlineess lets us do what we want.

It hints at a conscious choice out of desperate circumstances. I'll say no more.

It's certainly possible for that to happen. It says nothing about normal life, however. I think you'd have to be "looking for trouble" to take offense at that.

Hence, why I said "I'll say no more" lol. Obviously I have a very strong viewpoint, but I'm not looking for a fight.

Actually, I once had filled in a form with a "transgender" option. I was quite impressed.

I must admit to having filled in several forms which said "Sex (M/F) ___"
with "Yes, please!"

I know someone who used to fill in "zip code" fields with "YKK". (They're called "postal codes" over here).

We call them postal codes up here in Soviet Canuckistan.

BTW, what does 'YKK' stand for, anyway?

Thank you for putting up this disscussion it's what I needed to know, myself.
I was scared gonig into this religion wondering whether i'd be turned down on this case - again- it seems all the insane religions let you down.

Just wondering his feelings on Transgenderism and being a Transsexual, so basically pre-op and post-op?

Btw, I found myself reading the Gospel and screaming a "Yes, yes, bloody hell, I have the same beliefs" when scanning over the "Male = Person, Female = Person" about three times.

He has no feelings on the matter. All the FSM requests is that you eat much pasta and demand that Pastafarianism be taught alongside ID, and even those he doesn't really care about, because of His flimsy moral standards.

Thank his noodlyness for Canadian tolerance and online ordination.

I be an ordained minister in Alberta and will gladly perform any ceremony with a Pastafarian theme no matter which gender combo.

I work for beer and meatballs.
