Then don't perpetuate it.

If you do, then expect yourself to be exposed and debased for it.

King Tut Obama? What? is that getting on with life?

What does Obama have to do with King Tut? Is that a compliment or a derision?

<quoted text>Yes. It is.
Give us a revelation and name another.
Most likely not. Most black women are not such fools. You're not leaving my bed and telling me tonight is not my night nor are you expecting me to take care of babies you fathered another woman with me under the same roof. Total bs! Majority of white american women aren't going for the bs either!

Ours is a culture that is based on one man, one woman. Yes, we have divorces and multi families. However they do not occur under one roof with one man. We also don't give up our nieces 15 years old to be married to 40 year old uncles! But I guess you racist whites are ready for that and to accept it to, right?

With each and every change, with each and every manipulation of the scriptures you all do more damage to your so-called Christian faith, nation and party! LOL!

A bunch of bs born of white trash, subscribed to by white trah and believed by white trash.

Herein lies the test for Americans and one I am sure they will not fail. Those who voted for Obama never accepted the fact he was a Muslim nor did the majority not understand the concept of his former church (which is funny because he called for blacks empowering themselves financially, religiously and politically) but funny, for those Republicans that "pretend" to understand the Republican philosophy, one cannot understand what the problem is) but nonetheless, it's not that different from the Mormon Faith with the exception of the fact that this faith is not born of the Jewish/Christian Faith (which is subject, considering its history.) But now, these Republicans and yes, independents are ready to vote for this Bishop Mormon? Throw their support behind him? lol

New Book: End of a so-called christian nation that never was!

We already know that no Christian nation could have ever practiced the teachings of Christ and killed off the natives, stole their food support and labeled them savages, those who taught them to survive in the new world. Furthermore, those who were enslaved (savages) for hundreds of years and still demeaned and slurred to this day might have a problem with their so-called Christian/Jewish foundations so it's not a stretch that moral lapses would infect? lol or alter some peoples (mostly Republicans and some independents points of view of religion, politis and our nations principals, now would it?

So why not Mittyt? This slippery slope that those Americans of that mind frame have been gliding down for awhile now is not that far, now is it? Trillionaire? White the country is in a recession? Elevator for five cars? Why the hell not? America loves a winner, right? What are our favorite programs and magazines? lol

Bush wasn't enough? Have some more! lol. Better yet, vote for the man with a new heart, Cheney! Republicans, even you so-called intellectual, aren't going to pull this one off unless you cheaat and if Obama wins and finishes his term, I still despair for this country if your party ever gets its hands on this country because we're finished and you're right, if there's a devil called Satan, your party, fake religious, will usher him in with your greed and efforts to control, cut let's see who will win in the in and to my mind, it will always be the people who wanted to help others.

We'll see....and in my heart of hearts I know I am right because God makes those of us that belong to him, feel it and no amount of money, diamond, gold or sliver can replace the peace of God. He meets all our needs and much more, helps us to try and fulfill the needs of our brothers and sisters less fortunate.

Tell Mitty, to whom is much given, much is required and it's easier for a poor man to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man. Ask Cheney, who's afraid to die, lol. Got enough money to buy a heart he never had. Guess he thinks he can take his money with him, him and bush, right? I guess all those that died enriching them might say different.

2000 years ago when romans were building dams and persecuting the Jews, one would wonder if a man like yourself would be called "Celsus" swear that the gods were right and why would God choose to be in the form of a lowly Jew...

Ah but we are here now, and you speak of dam builders as a testament of who how power over nature makes one great.

You are very ignorant because you look at America, not the world. Dams are not made by whites everywhere, nor have they ever been.

Truthfully China has had the oldest, largest, and most powerful dams in history. But it doesn't matter.

Technological achievement does not make one a testament to God's grace. It never had. Else we would be worshipping roman gods.

It was satan's kingdom long before Obama took office.

And your message is worthless garbage. Because you know why? YOu were not worried about Satan when Bush was president, or when Reagan was president.

And what is laid down in books comes from others minds. THEIR minds are more honorable than yours.

A thousand charlatains, hucksters, false prophets, Nazis, restorationalists, white supremacists, fundamentalists, and charismatic televangelists come in teaching various kinds of garbage, but attaching it to this same drivel.

So, you love calling me stupid? Even a stupid man is wise enough to see through you.

When the president is white, you will "god bless America" when he is black you will say that Satan rules all nations. In the end, you want God and the Bible to be orbiting your skin color. And that IS satanic. that IS partly why Satan has such a hold on our society.

Lightness... reckless arrogance. It's in the Bible.

There it is,

White racist collapse. Run to your mythological twisting of scripture, with your demonic possession and what not.

I believe in Spirits, but I do not believe in your fables. Just like I believe in prophets, but I do not believe any Mormons were sent by God to be one. I believe that Egyptians could have come to America long ago, but none of them had anything to do with Mormon fairy tales.

You see how it works, Dr Viking?

see you make up mythological lies and then run around and talk about it as if it was something that happened beforehand.

But you rely on others reading to simply take your confusing names and random dates and accusations and then to go "gee, maybe he's telling the truth, I mean he just throws out names like it actually happened"

If you do not belive in Spirits, Then YOU DO NOT BELIVE IN GOD>>> THAT SIMPLE!!!!!

WHy am I so responsive? Ask yourself that question. You are a pretender. You can't even admit when you make a mistake. You misspelled the word. Big deal. I know for you it's so embarrassing that it's like utter humiliation that my dark skinned mind can out think you on even the smallest details.

Now, regarding my beliefs. One isn't "born" with a set of beliefs.

But you're obviously feeble in understanding that people, any people can learn to do anything that anyone else can do. Breeds are for dogs and horses. So you go on and on about breeds and you seem to be fixated on this breed myth. Because you are the atheist.

Each individual's capability is uniquely open to doing anything. What one is able to do manifests itself in their life. GOD, doesn't leave humans as you suggest.

Your philosophy is nothing more than a sad begging for preferential treatment and easy access. Maybe if you wish hard enough all black people will believe they can do no better, and more job openings for the better jobs will be available for whites. Keep wishing, and while you're at it, wish that wings will grow out of your back.

And the ones that apply force, without question moral value?

Those are called terrorists. You know, like the KKK, Al Keda, etc.

You are now so incoherent in your posts there's not much left of you. Take your racist theology and your

That you are an ATHIEST.
That you are a breed of human which is born with something the others do not have ? A CURSE ! Carried thru generations.
You know humans have been being breeded for thousands of years. Some are better then other at various tasks. Not everyone can be a welder or a Doctor OR ????...
Some breeds of humans work really well at Mc Donalds. Some make great stone cutters. Today things have changed toward technology. So no there is a need for people with hugh butts and don't move around very much and follow orders very precisely. Arn't they called prograners ? Then there is a need for ones who apply force under authority without question to any moral value. Arn't they called Police ?

Our conversation was about you and your ilk trying to link Obama to satan. It was about you blaspheming heretics trying to perpetuate the notion that cain's curse, mark, and heritage was related to black people.

Basically I am telling you that you can associate with whatever you want. But when you go in a public place and proclaim lies about others, specifically my people, to such a degree that you try to associate us with Cain and satan? You will be, by the right of God, crushed, refuted, embarrassed, and told off for what you try to do.

You speak blasphemy, Heresy, Lies, evil, sin.

I will continue to exercise my right and obligation to refute and rebuke you.
