That's the point. Folks like Carol claim to be Christians, yet she doesn't know that Jews, Christians, and Muslims worship the same God, Abraham. Or that many of the characters in the New Testament are also prominent in the Koran. Like Jesus, Joseph and Mary.

She's so ignorant she assumes all religions have different Gods. She's clueless.

Religion is the most divisive issue among humanity. Always has been the cause of more Wars and killing than anything else.

adolescent mothers are evident. A study of children ages four to 14 showed that those born to the youngest teen mothers performed more poorly on tests of cognitive ability, were more likely to be retained a grade, and were less likely to be perceived by their teachers as performing favorably by the time they reached high school....
Children of adolescent mothers are more likely to drop out of high school when compared to the children of mothers age 20-21. Only 77% of children born to adolescent mothers complete high school by early adulthood compared to 89% of the comparison group."

Firstly, I have to admit that I haven't been following this discussion between you and "Proud To Be White" but from what I have gathered from skimming through posts from last night, you need to give it up.(I apologize in advance if I have missed something of significance in your discussion).

Much as I hate to admit it, he is right. The first amendment only prohibited Congress from "establishing religion or from interfering in the religious establishments of the states." The Fourteenth amendment made that restriction applicable to state governments.

Although states may not have had "state religions" after independence, states like Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Vermont did allow the majority within each town to select the minister and hence the religious denomination for their town. This continued beyond the ratification of the first amendment.

Disestablishment came to Connecticut in 1818. Massachusetts was the last state to disestablish the practice of taxing people for the support of "public Protestant teachers of piety, religion, and morality." ....42 years after the first amendment was ratified. All states had religious tests for office and blasphemy laws which were outlawed by the fourteenth amendment.

South Carolina's Constitution of 1778 declared the "Christian Protestant religion" as
"the established religion of this State." That did not change with the passing of the First Amendment.

It wasn't until 1819 that the New Hampshire legislature adopted a "Toleration Bill,"which provided that "no person shall be compelled to join or support ... any congregation, church or religious society without his express consent first had and obtained," thus ending the system of compulsory support for religion."

silly, silly religious cult people....
It also seems interesting to me that God may have tried to give us a clue about how to love and forgive each other more than once throughout ancient history.

Was Horus's message to ancient Egyptians about love and forgiveness? Just curious. Because that's pretty important if we want to believe God is about love and forgiveness.

The Roman Empire had become so cruel and immoral, perhaps Jesus may have been sent at the right time and his message and claims the most believable.

Life's mysteries seem neverending...but just points to our own morality as being finite and our self-importance rather insignificant. It would seem.

You can buy it where ever you want.
So you didn't have health insurance before the ACA?
Kathleen Sebelius, i.e. the government, is the final arbiter of every aspect of health care. If costs become prohibitive, they already are, she has the authority to regulate everything that impacts health care costs. It's the EPA all over again. They have gained the power of legislation by decree, bypassing Congress and the will of the People. O-care has the same imperial powers.

The great flood is widespread among many cultures seen in the Mesopotamian flood stories, the Puranas, Deucalion in Greek mythology, the Genesis flood narrative, and in the lore of the K'iche' and Maya peoples of Central America, the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa tribe of Native Americans in North America, and the Muisca people in South America.

In Hindu mythology, texts such as the Satapatha Brahmana mention the puranic story of a great flood where the Matsya Avatar of Vishnu warns the first man, Manu, of the impending flood, and also advises him to build a giant boat.

You did research on Horus. Look this up too.

and those practices were found to be unconstitutional because, and this is the only point i ever tried to make in this argument..., the US was set up as a secular nation from day one.

remember the part of our constitution that no public office holder should be put to a religious test? just because people practiced unconstitutional policies in no way means they were in conflict with the way our nation was constructed.

not at all. there is absolutely no evidence of a global flood anywhere neat that time line. we have tons of evidence for much smaller floods from far, far before humans were ever on this puddly little rock yet not one trace of any global flood.

plus the impossibility of the whole story...just more proof that the god the abrahamic cult attempted to create is proven false...

and yet you cult freaks still believe what cannot possibly have happened... sheep, nothign but mindless sheep. hard to respect at all...

Religion is the most divisive issue among humanity. Always has been the cause of more Wars and killing than anything else.
A Christian's God through the teachings of Jesus Christ's message doesn't tell us to behead people and kill innocents who are non-Christians.

Man's craving for power stood behind the name of Christianity in the past but that's not - nor ever has been - the true message. The fruits of their spirit identifies them.

But think we've talked about this enough.

Let's stick to the reasons we're on this forum and answer this question. Are you denying Obama's poll numbers are dropping dramatically?
