A DU Game - be the 23rd poster on this thread
and win - well, not a prize, exactly - but the honor and admiration of your fellow DUers, for it will be tricky, and you must be poised and at the top of your form. Get the gatorade ready, limber up those fingers, clean your glasses, adjust the brightness on your monitor, and begin.

Can you do it? Can you be poster #23?

Topic of discussion: "Flotation devices, air bags, and helmets - does their use by Christians signify a lack of proper faith in a saving God, or are they yet another harbinger, a sign of the evil secularization of this country, with athiests and the Jewish-Banker-dominated entertainment and media industry trying to lead America from her Christian heritage into secular humanism with ideas about 'protecting ourselves' and 'saving our children', all so the homosexual agenda has someone to convert to that lifestyle choice?"

1. Seat belts
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 09:46 PM by Ponderer
Seat belts save lives. Seat belt usage has increased from 20% to 80%.

Of course, people speed more because of this.

2. Now the Jehovah's witnesses do believe in non-intervention
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 09:48 PM by Ponderer
In regards to blood transfusion. Does this apply to seat belts? I really don't know.

3. Passenger airbags do kill small people
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 09:50 PM by Ponderer
However, I believe that they are good in the majority of cases.

What may be dangerous is accidently turning off the passenger airbag.

4. The Christian faith hinges on one thing
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 09:56 PM by Ponderer
That is the total grace of Christ.

However, can Christ save you from an automobile accident?

Think about it?

5. Now just because you are saved does not mean
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 09:57 PM by Ponderer
your children are saved.

So maybe your children should wear seatbelts but not you.

7. After you are 16, you can be cited on your own for not wearing
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 09:58 PM by Ponderer
a seatbelt.

However, you cannot smoke at that age. Is that fair?

Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 10:00 PM by Ponderer

9. Homosexuals should also wear seatbelts
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 10:01 PM by Ponderer
It is only right that they have the same right to safety as heterosexuals.

36. LOL!
I liked this one, and the other one about "Maybe your children should wear them (seatbelts), but not you."

Wonderfully creative! Thanks for going back and editing your posts - quite funny, and some thoughtfully serious.
