Winter Warm Up

When it’s snowing outside you can’t go wrong with some warm winter wear for the people closest to your heart. Gloves, hats and scarves are a great way to combine functional with fun. Almost every major store and lots of independent retailers make a variety of winter accessories in loads of patterns and styles, so it shouldn’t be hard to find scarves, mitts, and hats that are a perfect match for every member of your family.

Parent Pleasers

The winter holidays are a good time to get your parents something to help them relax at home. If your parents are bookworms (or even if they just like a good story), why not get them a best seller that they can curl up by the fire with! Like Steig Larsson’s mystery thriller series The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

If books aren’t their thing, why not try treating your parents to some special bath and shower or shaving kits (for dad!) The Body Shop sells a range of holiday collections that range from $9 to $100 in a variety of some of their most delicious scents, like vanilla bean or citrus fruits.

Sibling Stuff

Not sure what to get for your brother or sister this year? How about something you’ll both enjoy (cause let’s face it, if you’re siblings you’ll be sharing whatever you get them eventually, so you may as well get them something you both like!)You can never go wrong with music, and if you’re not sure about someone’s music taste it’s a good bet to go with one of the most popular pop albums of the year, Selena Gomez’s When the Sun Goes Down. If their taste is a little more off-beat you can always get them a gift card for iTunes.

You and your brother/sisters are all home for the holidays, which means lots of hanging out indoors (away from the cold). Why not enjoy the time inside with a family fun movie, like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt.1 or 2 (or both!)

The Life Saver: Socks

Okay, we know it’s cheesy. But if you have to get a gift for someone who isn’t in to movies or music or...anything, there is always socks. Everybody needs ‘em, and everybody secretly wants ‘em. In winter anything fun or funky goes with socks, so get them thick, wooly, patterned with snowflakes, or rainbow toe socks. Just get something to make them smile!

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But in some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;
