Which one of us has an imaginary, invisible friend who loves him?
I'm clever simply by being a homosapien, as are you, monkeyboy.
However, I am one hell of a lot smarter than you are.....
No doubt about it.
No... not really, not where it counts!

<quoted text>If every one would try to live by Matthew 25:32-45 the world would be a greater place. I have yet to meet ONE christian that TRIES to live by the words of their christ. Most are too busy looking down their nose at every one else. Poor people are never referred to as "good christians" only the well off, their god is material wealth
Do you even know what those verses are talking about?
.
Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he will
separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his]
sheep from the goats:
.
25:45 Then will he answer them, saying, Verily I say to you,
Inasmuch as ye did [it] not to one of the least of these, ye
did [it] not to me.
25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but
the righteous into life eternal.
.
Jesus said a lot more things than just these... Like
Tell everyone the Good news!
How is telling you God is real, repent, turn from your sin, and ask Jesus to be your savior... Looking down or nose at you?
Yes... there are some strange people out there, but you'll find
MOST of US were you... before!

The problem, I think, is the Fundamentalists. They focus narrowly on a few interpretations or verses from the Bible and seem to hammer on those ideas far more intensely than anything else. Jesus talked a lot about being kind, being charitable, being humble. Yet most of what we hear from Fundamentalists is about gay bashing, evolution, capitalism, and small government. This is a set of ideas that is almost exclusively an American version of Christianity. And it's a Bible Belt/Right Wing American version at that.

It's like taking a rock song and running it through a filter until only the tambourine or one cymbal is left audible and the rest becomes muffled.

Why don't we hear Fundamentalists passionately pushing for more aid to the poor, the handicapped, the mentally ill? Why aren't they opposing war? Why do thy seem to be fixated with guns and gay bashing? Jesus had little or nothing to say about that stuff.

Coal miners say they were forced to attend Romney event and donate

Oh, oh, this is wrong. How do I know? Because radial right-wing fringe-of-society
teabag infidels would be screaming like pigs at the slaughter had Obama done this.
But hey, it wasn't Obama (the "marxist"), it was Romney the American Jobs Slayer &

You and HF have the same issue, you think everyone is dem or rep, I am not, all politicians are a joke, do you really think any one of them care about you?

If so, Delusional comes to mind.

As I have said before hang them all and start again, I bet the next group will get along and get Their JOB done. Last time I remember them working together, was in getting a pay raise for Themselves.

But that was not the point of my post, I just ask about your meaning of dipstick compared to tard, thank you for your reply.

To even bring up an idiotic concept of 'legitimate rape' is the epitome of stupidity, and yes, it is that bad. I'm truly sorry that you don't get it.

That is the problem. You are filled with so much hate for ALL religious people, you can't see any good in any. Church leaders I have been around my entire life do NOT preach hate.
Thank you for your reply. I Thank you and the other nice christians and non-hate filled church leaders, that you will assemble to protest and write letters condemning these christians for their hate speech.

"When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we'll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed."

"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity."
Ann Coulter

Thank you for your support, I am looking forward to seeing in the news about your group of nice christians condemning these bad ones for their hate.

Once again Thank You for standing up for what's right.

Next you and your nice christian group can condemn westboro church.
The list is long.
This will be great nice christians doing what's right.

Good DAY.

<quoted text>no i dont wish to have a discussion with a philosopher u think they didnt read the Bible pull a coin out of your pocket and read the inscription on it In God We Trust and when they mention the name of God in him u have the name of Jesus
So because the Christian right wing was successful at demanding in god we trust on the coins, that proves all of your claims?

Nope I don't write to congress about something I really don't care about... I don't care if religion is believed or not... I care about what effects people directly and then I prioritize what I find important and what I don't... Religions of any kind are delusional in nature and sometime I give it a wide birth... Sometimes I don't but I in general don't care if money has God written on it, theres a cross on public land or somebody pushes a religious view... Just not that important but when asked by friends and relatives I tell them what I think about it...
As for All Republican Agendas ... That's absolutely false as in this thread I have not addressed All Republican Agendas so you only know the ones I do support but one... I have some Conservative views, Some Liberal views, some other more esoteric views .. Not a Republican View...
For an example I am against the death penalty, for legalization of all drugs, Don't give a crap about other peoples lifestyles, Thank Adults should be allowed to do just about anything they wish as long as they are held Responsible when their actions infringe of others in doing what they wish to do... And there are many other issues I totally disagree with republicans about... Some I agree with a bit, some I totally agree with....
I do not make stands Just because of some Group Think and take each and every specific issue I find of interest Individually with out Group Think Bias... I do have my own Biases but I Know those biases, I take those biases into consideration when I contemplate specific issues and formulate my Own Individual positions...
Seems you have some libertarian views. Ironic they do not apply to religion.
The lack of consistency is a problem.

Freedom of use of drugs will never be realized until those who vote republican refuse to tell their representatives how they feel on the subject.

I think recreational drugs should be allowed but regulated like any prescription drug. The tax dollar revenue would be huge. The drug war expenses would be a huge savings.
Democrats would go for this but they know the right wing will not allow them to do it, so they prioritize the fight to something they feel they can do.

I'm am Absolutely Consistent... You just have a view that if your preconceived notions of what you consider consistent... A person can enjoy head banging rock and roll and Mozart, Wear strip pants with checked shirt and still be consistent....

As for contacting politicians it's a useless endeavor unless there is a ground swell, When I see a ground swell of folks that agree with what I hold as an important issue I do write and call.. But a few people calling in telling them they want a joint does nothing..

We have a two party system, I don't like it but it is what the people have settled on.. In the end I have to place my vote on one of those two sides.. the Dem's and Repub's are 80% the same when it comes to the majority of policies with just a few issues that are approached differently... So I make my choice in the end based on a couple of over riding issues that have import to me..

I do not like either choice for different reasons.. I actually would have support Paul far more than what I have to select from now and did actively get involved in his efforts but when the people made their choices for who the last two standing would be then I make my choice from those.. But at no point have I been inconsistent...

To make a ground swell requires people actually doing it. In a sense you have to suspend reason for a moment and act on principle. Voting 3rd party is an example of this.

I totally disagree (Surprise!)... Voting 3rd party in a primary is fine.. Voting 3rd party in the main event is giving the party you most oppose a freebee... The Ground swell must happen Before the final event and it has to reach a level of support that makes it viable .. The suspension of reason and rationality is a sure way to fall to delusion...

"I have yet", "Most are", "are never", "only the well off". I just can't understand it. Were you kidnapped by a weird, so called "Christian" cult as a child and chained in the basement? You must have experienced something terrible to be this brainwashed.
The true Christians I know could care less how much money you have. They love one another and help one another with no thought of background or income levels. I am not speaking of one specific location in which I grew up in this type of environment and I am still surrounded by this one group of people. I am speaking of living in 8 cities and attending 8 churches over my lifetime and finding the same type of true Christians in each location. I am not saying everything was perfect all the time, but for the most part, the good far outweighed the bad.
Amen!
Far more good than bad!
Yes, you get the oddball, like my wife's aunt.
