Christ gave his life for the Church...
That's impressive forward planning, given that the Christian Church wasn't established till Pentecost, after Christ had died.

Not sure how you derive that intention. Christ never married. He didn't set a very good example, did he? By the way, do you follow every random rule set down by people living on a different continent 2,000 years ago? No room for any change, any modernizing? At least you're safe from coveting your neighbour's ass.

Stop LGBT bullying... LGBT is being shoved upon us.
But it's OK to shove your 2,000-year-old prejudices on them, right? It really looks to me like you're the bully, here. Who are you, by the way? You've been here a while, I think.

Re: Laderach (Läderach)... run by anti-gay and anti-abortion religious fundamentalist

btw, take a look at the comments section at the bottom of the article:

https://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/laedera...ynist/45505354

I suspect this is a marketing move by laderach. Clearly, they're losing the quality battle vs. lindt so they need to identify a new customer segment and own it. I think they've paved the way for emotional marketing level 2

I think so. I totally think it's strategic.

Although I don't think Laderach and Lindt cater to the same customers. It is like handmade boutique clothes and mass production of clothes.

If I wanted to promote pro-choiceism among some people but pro-lifeism among others (as in: encouraging, not compelling), then, based on the claims of beningness of the former, nobody could claim I'm a racist or a nationalist?

Another example of LBGT bullying a Christian owned businesses. Thank God for a strong Swiss man who has the guts to stand for truth in these evil days.

Murdering babies by ripping them to pieces is wrong and barbaric.
(calling it a woman's choice just sounds better but it's evil).

Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman created by God. Marriage is a symbol of the Church. Christ gave his life for the Church to represent how a man should love his wife until death parts them. (A man cannot marry; another man, a child, an animal, or an inanimate objet). If the ceremony took place in Church - it would make that Church Apostate as it is in complete opposition with God's word.

Stop LGBT bullying. I should be able to express my opinion without fear of being bullied by LGBT (of course since Media supports LGBT) - we no longer live in a democracy. We no longer have freedom of speech. LGBT is being shoved upon us.
Oh boy, you signed up just to say all this.

a) there is no truth here since there's no proof an alien being (which is what God or whatever is) exists or had anything to do with creating anything. Only opinions.

b) marriage was around long before the Christian church existed so it just nicked it from the Egyptians, pagans, etc, as it did many of its other major ceremonies/celebrations (Christmas being just one example). God or whatever never created it; humans did. As they created religions themselves.

c) considering Christianity has bullied milllions of people over the years, whatever their persuasions, maybe it's time they were on the receiving end.

d) and don't get me started on all these cases of child abuse by priests. Yes, a fine example for us to follow.

Re: Support Laderach! Stop LBGT Bullying

I actually got converted of sorts, but to the dark side.
Having numerous offspring I would want less competition for them for the scarce resources, similarly as, thanks to the courtesy of many childless Swiss I could profit from by coming to this beautiful country and profit from the opportunity they were so nice to leave for me.

There is a encumbrance of sorts, i.e. an onerous taxation of my income in support of the old Swiss so maybe I should donate to promote Exit, iQuit and other benevolent schemes of cost reduction :-)

I think your next visual for the new line of chocolates, call them "Monastic Dreams" could be a chubby monk, holding the hand of a young boy with one hand and eating said chocolate with the other. With the slogan at the bottom "Mariage Parfait"

It's an uber-capitalist mercantile race in Star Trek who live by "The rules of acquisition", one of which is "In times of war, remain neutral so you can sell to both sides".

Similarities with the Swiss are purely coincidental

Btw: Is allowed to mix the rules of acquisition with Gibb's rules. Are they even compatible or should I simply stick to the gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster? Ramen.

Not at all, you really are free to believe whatever you like and mix with whoever you like.

Nobody is shoving anything upon you.

Hmmm, this reply will only reinforce some people's belief that they are being persecuted. Maybe it's a better idea to avoid mentioning collective punitive measures. It would make the non-religious ones look more credible.
