well i am sorry but that racetrack-semi casino is not much to brag about. both memphis and west memphis are on a decline and it is not because of religion, but the lack of religion.
the developers put that complex thier to draw 3 classes of people
1 very wealthy
2 very poor and illiterete
3 non believers who love the free food and wine but seldom gamble
You're an idiot. Memphis is dying because of the people who keep getting elected and stealing money. it has nothing to do with or without religion, and it shows how much you know when you make stupid ass comments like this. It's called "corrupt" leaders being re-elected time and time again by the black majority, who vote solely for race. Then you have the suburbanites fleeing the city and just avoiding the problems altogether. So, do a little research before spewing such stupidity out of your vagina mouth

I'm from Memphis. Trust me I know what's there. I last drove through there last summer, so I doubt much has changed, besides the ongoing road construction.
Your last statement is pointless and stupid. Unless you actually drive through the inner part of the city, I suggest you do more research, but I doubt you would.
The reason the perception on gambling has changed is mainly due to money shortages. The tax revenue it gives them by offering and promoting Southland is priceless, as I'm sure many religious and non religious people approved the measure. You put all your strength and time into tearing something down, when that's not the truth.
West Memphis has and currently is one of the poorest areas in the country. Why don't you do some "ACTUAL" research and then get back to me.
I am not allowed to do research because "Interesting" has told me that links and statistics are unacceptable on this thread.
You passed through a year ago. I was there last week.
Perhaps there is no improvement in downtown - I don't know. I do know that the casino parking lot which is as big as some small towns is full to overflowing on weekends along with the dozen or so new hotels nearby. I suggest that the improvement to the city starts there. I also suggest that a similar construction (along with others) in Jackson would benefit the city.

I'm really enjoying this thread - thanks. I think you misread that. It is not from me - I'm the atheist!

There are not a dozen new hotels in West Memphis. I've noticed 5 at the most that have been built over the last 3 years. The thing is, 2 of those were just reconstructed hotels, more like motels, for older, decrepid buildings. It's not progress, just because it's new. Sometimes it's better to renovate, but nothing in West Memphis, is of that much importance. That's not religion's fault, but when you've been labeled "America's Biggest Truck-Stop" for nearly half a century, it's going to make people weary of that town as a desirable place to live. For many reasons: poverty, pollution, flooding, safety. Trust in the police. these are the problems that surround West Memphis, not religion. YOu know I don't have a problem with you being an atheist, I just think it's preposterous to make that comparison for why a city is flourishing. But in reality, WM is not, and you should read more into their websites, including CofC, and the West Memphis Economic Development page. The reason I say this, is in 2008, my senior year in high school, I did a comprehensive research paper on why DeSoto County has flourished and why Crittendon hasn't. There's a bunch of things and reasons, but I summed up most of them for you above.

Sorry for all the sentence fragments as well, but I don't have my editor on hand, at the moment.:}

Jackson has a lot of potential, at least in the kind of visitors it could attract. I would love to go in depth on the potential. A lot of it starts with a real four year public university being in Jackson now. But if you want a grown-up conversation on Jackoson's potential and its "REAL" roadblocks. I'd love to have that discussion. Religion is not a major factor, and the problems lie within, whether it's fleeing to the north, or government corruption. But I'm willing to have that conversation, if you don't try and drag religion into it, because it's absurd.

An in depth analysis of W.Memphis is not my point if you can remember. I pointed out that there is growth over a 10 year period to my personal knowledge and I attribute it to the casino. Do you disagree with that statement?
I used the example to suggest that a casino might benefit Jackson. Do you agree?
I would further go on to suggest that the elimination of blue laws would favor business in any area. I go even further to suggest that churches are the main reason that blue laws exist and continue.
Do you follow my theme?
I am not suggesting that religious fervor is the only problem in Jackson I am suggesting that it is the one I would remove to see the benefits.

A casino in Jackson is a terrible idea. Our own leaders barely even understand how to spend our budget properly. I mean these are the people throwing around the idea of a new highway when our own city roads look like crack heads paved them.

You are probably right - there is no point in bringing in further business if those in power are incapable of governing adequately.

Just been down to Bolivar today to visit. Latest news is that the city could not get 300 names on a petition to put wine/liquor stores on the next ballot. When I asked about this, I got the same answer from two sources. People are afraid their church will see the signatures on the petition - Hypocrites! I'll bet there isn't a house in Bolivar that doesn't have wine or liquor in it, even if it is only moonshine.
So, one of the poorest cities in one of the poorest counties stifles business and refuses trade in the name of religion. These backward, primitives have only themselves to blame. They complain about lack of jobs and investment, yet they can't see further than their church. The only businesses that prosper in Bolivar are the churches - some beauties there!

Exactly! That's backwoods, old school religion. The point is, most people of faith aren't as concerned about this. In addition, you're talking about maybe at most 3 specific religions. You guys really need more Catholics in this area. Religion sure hasn't hampered liquor sales on any day in Louisiana, which is filled with Catholics. Actually, you could relate the relaxed liquor laws in Louisiana, solely based upon their being a heavy Catholic contingent, in that state. So riddle me that one Why do you assume that every religion that exists, is so backwards and against progression? That's hardly the case, except with a few religions.

Once again off topic, from what this thread is supposed to be about, but god knows I can't get you to stay on topic. Like when you followed me over to this thread. Which I have no problem with, except that it was only to attack religion. Which is still funny to me, because I'm not religious. I call religions out for bullshit just like I do for atheists who want to wipe the world clean of all religion. There are more then 1 belief in the entire realm of thought that a human can think of in their head. And until you, and that faggot, according to reason realize this, then there will always be a lack of understanding.

I think you're not as closed minded as that other idiot I mentioned, I'm just baffled at the utter disgust for religion existing.

No population growth = no real growth. Just because soomething looks new and updated, doesn't mean it's good. North Korea sets up fake towns along their border with S. Korea to make it seem like life is good there, but that doesn't fool anyone. Just like West Memphis doesn't fool anyone. Unless you're that naive.

Using terms like "faggot" does nothing to validate your poor post. It only takes one religion in the majority to stifle business and that is happening hereabouts. All religions are dangerous and primitive. I've started posting, where necessary, a piece of today's news to illustrate the danger from religions.

Where do you get this stuff? So, 100 people living in a village cannot become more prosperous unless someone else moves in?

Yes. Because if they had no desire to change before, why should they out of nowhere. That's usually how things change (Outside influence) Surely, this is not a hard concept to accept, seeing as how it's true for most of America's history of change

I know about crazy religion in Sudan and how it promotes killing your kids, the point is this is AMerica. How does using a word like "faggot" invalidate a statement of mine. It's a reference to somebody who sucks a lot, like you do in a lot of your statements. It's not a derogatory towards homosexuals. If you don't see that, then you need to watch South Park. Your only arguments that using derogatory comments somehow makes what I say less valid, is pretty damn retarded. Especially when the only important factos are FACTS, FACTS, FACTS, FACTS, FACTS. If it were about JARGON, JARGON, JARGOn, you might have a point. But it's about, and say it with me like a big boy <<<<(FACTS)> >>>
That's it and that's all.

Give up on the West Memphis thing, because it is humorously inaccurate, and the only reason you're fighting me on it is because it's something you pointed out, but is wrong. i can admit when I'm wrong, so why can't you? I think admitting you're wrong is way more mature than trying to twist it around, which you do. In yet, you refer to me as immature. At least I don't lie about things, which is pretty good sign of MATURITY. So, please, in some rational, fact filled statement, explain how you have the right to call me immature, while you continue to lie to me. Pot and something about a kettle goes real well at this time to describe yourself :)

Once again, I'm not pissed at you, and I hope my tone doesn't shout that, but it is meant with some exclamation because you still refuse to see this.
