Are American citizens in this nation, who are not Christian, less than equal? It's almost as if you are telling us that tax paying, life long American citizens who don't believe in Christianity are not equal. I wonder what the founders of this country would think about that? Drill, baby, drill that one, baby Jesus.

If climate change does exist, it's because God is angry at Caesar Obamus for letting people get gay married. Just ask the "morally upright" lapdog, if he's not too busy gnawing on a freshly f**ked corpse, that is...

No, that's what you think. I just want what's best for our nation: faithfulness in marriage; stable, loving families; and kids being taught an alternate theory about how they came to exist on the earth.
Your "morality" results in unwanted pregnancies, murdered babies, rampant STDs, and kids being brainwashed into thinking that they're descended from monkeys.

I think the abortion rate was 13% higher under GW Bush, because mothers didn't want their children to grow up in the nightmare world that the Christian Conservative Right had created.

Well I'm not Christian but was raised as a Catholic, and we were never taught to look down at people in a condescending way. I don't think Christians are that way either unless you can provide some sort of an example.
But your comment does remind me of an old joke my father told me some time ago:
A man dies and goes to heaven. He was met by St. Peter who led him by hand to tour the great heaven.
St. Peter said "This is the room where the Jewish will spend the rest of eternity." The man said "they look pretty happy."
Then St. Peter said "This is the room where the Buddhists will spend the rest of eternity." The man said "These Buddhists look very happy too!"
Once again, they roamed down the hall and St.Peter said "This is the room where Protestants will spend the rest of eternity." The man again replied "These Protestants look very happy."
Finally at the end of the hall, St. Peter whispered "This is the room where the Catholics will spend the rest of eternity." The man replied "Well they look happy too, buy why are we whispering?" St. Peter said "Because they think they are the only ones here!"
So you are saying that small town Christians have never viewed an unwed teenage mother in a negative way, huh? I don't have any personal examples on the matter, but I'm guessing they are often treated as social outcasts.

Here's a joke for you. Two cannibals are out in the woods eating a clown. The one cannibal says to the other "Does this taste funny to you?"

Everyone knows Dahmer was an homosexual evolutionist in his serial-killing days. You can try to spin it all you want, but the facts aren't going to change.

Unwanted pregnancies? Are we talking about the Bible belt? If man didn't evolve from the beasts, then explain Honey Boo Boo. I do agree that we need to teach an alternate theory on the creation of man, though. Something down right American. Now if we can only decide on which Native American Tribe to go with.
You were just criticizing small-town "Christians" who pass judgment on unwed, pregnant mothers. And then you turn around and say that a little girl on TV is like an animal, and you mock the American Indians because of their beliefs. Tell us again how liberals are so accepting of everyone, haha.

You're flat out screwy. Also, you are pretty dense if you thought my post was about mocking Native Americans. I never said that the fat little hillbilly girl, sitting in a mud puddle eating whole sticks of butter was an animal. She is more than likely an evolutionary step between man and hog, or perhaps the offspring of a traditional family values kinda guy and a farm animal. You are a fool if you think for a second I feel obligated to be "accepting" of anything you spew, seeing that the conversation was about why young people get abortions. I personally wish the government would destroy all your tax exempt pedophile compounds you call churches and build eco friendly drive thru abortion clinics in their ashes, and raise your taxes to pay for it. Accepting enough for you, lil poochie?

Sounds to me like you are watching too many movies. Remember that any religion that follows the new testament also follows the actions of Jesus. The big word in those religions is "forgive." Everybody sins as they say. Let he without sin cast the first stone. Things like that.
That's not to say they don't look down at somebody from a morality point of view, but not really a religious one. More than likely, they are struggling between their feelings of morality and their faith.
The question is, don't we all look down at people in some way? Not to be critical, but I know you do. So do I. So does everybody here. You look down on people that don't follow your faith of Global Warming. I look down at the people who are physically and mentally capable of supporting themselves, but instead, let other working people support them.
I just listed two, but there are many others on both sides. Regardless of faith, upbringing, race, financial success or failure, we all look down on some group of people.
I am all too familiar with the Christian community and it's very wide spectrum as to what being a Christian means. You make a very good point about everyone having some kind of bug up their @ss about this group or that one. Since you have impressed me with your insight, I'll share something I read in a psychology article today. Although it is commonly believed that venting frustration towards something or someone is somehow good to "get it out of your system", even to the point of self help books telling you to hit a pillow, or web pages dedicated to nothing but the kind of venom we spew on this very site, it is not true. It doesn't help. Studies show that when we vent our anger like what politics does to a lot of people, it actually makes you more of an angry person, and less happy. I often write things on here for the sole purpose of making myself laugh, but have to admit that there is a negative side to all of this. Perhaps it is good advice for everyone to do what the study suggests, and learn to vent in a more positive direction.

I'm willing to bet that more than one of my mortal Conservative enemies on here would probably be almost tolerable, if we were hanging out and having a pint or two together. We could come to an agreement on common things like how Nancy Pelosi does indeed look batsh1t crazy, or how we probably wouldn't want to leave our kids alone with someone like Pat Robertson. Just kidding, but still, something to ponder.

The only people I have ever known to get an abortion were wealthy, young Christian Republicans that didn't want their entire education and their careers shut down by an unwanted child. This I know first hand, because one of them was my cousin. How many abortions were due to small town church communities, and the absolute shun they would place on the upstanding, Christian families who had a young, pregnant unmarried daughter? If it's the Democrats that are so willing to get an abortion, then why has the abortion rate dropped 13% under Obama?

Statistics show that teenage pregnancy drops dramatically after 20.

If a seagull brings a white baby and a crow brings a black baby, what brings no baby?

Interesting that you have so readily available, on the tip of your tongue, the statistics on abortion in the black community. I know many black people but don't often find myself randomly blurting out questions like whether or not they have had an abortion. I am sure though, that like you stated, the statistics would completely nullify any idea that Christians may look down on unwed, young pregnant women. I know. Let's ask the Muslims, gays, or atheists how they feel about Christians never looking down on any group of people.

If all of the abortions suddenly stopped in this country, I wonder if any particular group would cry the loudest over having to help contribute as a society to those children's upbringing? I just can't put my finger on who that group might be, but I am willing to bet if you took your finger and pointed it directly at your chest, it would suddenly reveal the answer to that question.

But if we did that, how would Fox News and MSNBC make any money off of dividing this nation? If that were to happen, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Rachael Maddow would shrivel up and blow away in the wind. If the people of this country stood united, then the politicians we elect on both sides of the fence would actually have to do their jobs. The American workers wouldn't have to scratch and claw just to exist in this world and we wouldn't be hearing things like how Vladimir Putin is a "Conservative Hero". Perhaps if we traced back to what it was that so drastically divided this country, it would lead us to GW Bush and a war in Iraq. Some of us weren't waving our flags and quoting our Bibles when we attacked the wrong country, based on false information.

I wish that the Conservatives would look up who pays the Tea Party candidates and what is motivating them on issues like climate change or labor in this country. Like the GOP, corporations realized what easy pickings the religious right was to cash in on pushing forward their agenda. The real reason why the Tea Party Republicans in Congress are so against health care reform is due to the fact that many American workers, who are stuck in low paying, crappy jobs for the sole reason of getting health care coverage for their family, could tell the "job creators" to stick it up their @ss. There is a reason why the oil industry has spent millions to refute climate change and why their agenda ends up coming out of the mouths of the religious right. It is scary to think that those same corporations have taken over the EPA in this country. Look it up.
