The Capital sins or the chief sources of sin
are seven: Pride, Covetousness, Lust, Anger,
Gluttony, Envy, and Sloth.
There are seven Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation,
Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing of the sick,
Holy Orders, and Matrimony.
The seven gifts of the Holy Ghost are Wisdom,
Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety,
and Fear of the Lord.
First & foremost, didn't the Bible say,"I did not create the spirit of fear?" Why would the controller of all things good & pure want his followers to be scared of him? That sounds like the words of a king, not the God of free will! That's not the experience I've had personally with God. As a youth I was horrible. I fought everyday. I beat bullies, fought my mom, & beat the innocent into submission. Every night I went to bed, I dreamt of the devil. My mother told me,"you keep it up, the devil gonna get you!" But I was hard headed, wanting to blaze my own path. Till 1 night these dreams became more than a dream. I was actually feeling things touching me in my sleep, talking to me. Saying things like,"you belong to me now." It was then I decided to change. I got an overwhelming feeling I had better make a change for the better, & I did. My life changed because of that overwhelming feeling. A force of purity & piety guided me in the right direction, not a sense of fear. Fear is not free will. Its a form of enslavement!

It may appear that we accommodate Christians in this country, probley because we are a Christian country.
Well, you're wrong. the Treaty of Tripoli written under George Washington and signed by John Adams on June 10, 1797 says specifically;
Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Muslim] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
We are in fact a secular nation.

You're opinion is duly noted but it's only your opinion and it's wrong.
Most of the posters on this thread like Jane, who constantly harp about how Christians are being persecuted in this country are completely oblivious to the central message of Christianity which is social justice.

What would a doctor do even if that were the case? Write a prescription banning the gun?
Doctors report abuse of any kind to the proper authorities who take over these cases.
They'd have to ask about knives and bats in the home too - or pillows and bare hands leading to death by suffocation and strangulation.
See where this is going? A gun doesn't kill anyone anymore than a pillow.
It's not a matter of writing a prescription you clueless twit, doctors also give advice to their patients that will hopefully save their lives like leaving a dangerous situation and possibly getting them in touch with an agency that will help facilitate the change.
Another example of when a presence of a gun in the house would be germane is if a patient is showing signs of clinical depression which often presents itself as physical symptoms. Guns in the home are often used as a means of suicide.

We can't do anything about knives or bats or pillows but we can eliminate the easiest way of harming family members or the gun owner themselves.
You really are a very stupid individual aren't you Carol?

"All major murder-suicide studies in the United States completed since 1950 have
shown that firearms are by far the most common method of committing homicide,
with the offender choosing the firearm for suicide as well.4 Estimates range from
firearms being used in 80 percent to 90 percent of cases, but many other weapons,
including aircraft, have been used."
What about the other 10 percent? I guess that they don't matter.

If it's not in the Constitution then the statement that we're a Christian nation has no bearing except as an ignorant opinion. Pointing this out is in no way being anti American.

I'm on my phone & can not copy & paste, but if you want go to fear God.net . You'll see they are not taking about respect at all, but fear literally. Do much so that they didn't want direct communication with God. Yet when God had something to say, he spoke directly to Moses & dozens of others. That is not the spirit of God to whom they were communicating with if it scared them. That was primitive people misunderstanding natural disasters & claiming it was a message from God. This is what I mean by learn from the past of what not to do, but don't look for answers of present times & future problem or you'll be as delusional as they were thousands of years ago. They spike of fear from Genesis all the way to revelation nonstop as if the God of live & compassion was the God of fear. Those people were scared of people, kings that killed in the name of God. False prophets!

As I stated here yesterday, your forefathers were slave owners at the time they signed the constitution & more than alot of those slaves were muslims along with alot of those sent to give them guidance, the moors. The moors were not of 1 religious background, but the majority were Muslim. I know you'll say the slaves religious views didn't matter, but what about the moors. They were black yet free teachers of freemasonry. See George Washington's portrait with his full Mason apparel. You'll see a black dude standing behind him as well in Mason apparel with a turban on his head. He's a moors. They also lived here in those times. Were their religious beliefs taken into account when the constitution was written? Not to mention there is some evidence that Ben Franklin was an atheist. Some even say Washington was Muslim thru his affiliation with the moors & also evidence to say otherwise. Just showing you not even all who signed the constitution were of 1 religious faith.

Stuffy Old Men: Region, Religion, Race and Class Define and Buffet GOP

Given what the Republican Party is and where America’s demographics are heading, it is unclear whether the Grand Old Party can successfully pivot to the center without jeopardizing its socially conservative evangelical base. Electoral competitiveness remains elusive for Republicans as singles and younger voters have migrated to the Democratic Party. The GOP is also shackled with the legacies of Iraq, Katrina and the crash of 2008 that have led many to view Republican competence as oxymoronic.

So at best, the party is barely treading water. A recent PPP poll shows both incumbent Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor Jeb Bush trailing Hillary Rodham Clinton by double digits—in Florida. Putting things in perspective, if the Republicans do not win Florida, they cannot re-take the White House. Indeed, with Florida, and Virginia — another state that Barack Obama carried twice—the once-Republican Solid South is starting to look like a blue-and-red checkerboard, with Democrats now owning some of the biggest squares.

Meanwhile, the Republican Party is far from agreed that it even has a problem. In fact, intra-party schisms were vividly displayed at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference, to which New Jersey’s popular governor Chris Christie was not invited. Instead, CPAC attendees heard Donald Trump do his usual rich guy-tough guy routine, and listened to Sarah Palin extol her husband’s and her own physical endowments. Okay for reality TV, perhaps, if not so much for serious national politics.
