Im not sure what exactly you mean. This looks like an interesting conversation.

I can tell you, as an atheist, that speaking ill of Christianity is still one of the greatest taboos in America, espeially in the south. Occasionally you might find an outspoken individual like George Carlin but mostly (outside of the internet) people keep quiet with regard to Christianity.

Myself? If I am in the company of Christians I observe their customs. For example, if they say a grace before eating I bow my head along with them.

Religious unrest in this country and the world has reached critical mass. Islam is a real problem too. It is the Muslim Brotherhood that is trying to make it an international crime to speak negatively about their religion. When we take the voice away from the people there are no checks and balances. Im glad people can point out the atrocities committed by Christians as well as other religions.

Additionally, there has to be another school of thought. Did you know that during Christianity's great rule we were in an informational dark age? Guess who thrived and nearly took over the world while we burned science books? Yep, the Muslims.

The dark ages were a good example of what happens to a civilization when God (Jesus) is left out. Of course He was taught in the schools, the U.S. was based on Christian and Jewish values. That is the reason ,in my opinion ,that the US thrived . Now we are entering into another dark age. Look and listen . The music, the art. There are not witty inventions. God(Jesus) has been asked to leave and he is in the process of leaving.

Jesus isnt going anywhere. Jesus said I will never leave u nor forsake u. I will trust Jesus no matter what I am confronted with in life. In my opinion Jesus is the only thing we can trust. All else will pass away.

I was thinking of this verse earlier today. I just want to say that I just don't think it's true that Christians are being persecuted. If anything, Christians are DOING the persecuting. I urge you to seek the truth. I believe that there is an evil power that is falsely influencing the christian population. FOX NEWS is owned by the false prophet.

OMG, yet another post on how a news network is ruining the nation. Have you not seen the biases of the rest of the media? Just because you don't agree with what is being said doesn't mean a news network is the devil. I suppose MSNBC, CBS, ABC, etc. are all prophets of goodness in your opinion. A nation prospers or fails based on the actions of its people, not the influences of a news network. If you think this is actually happening, then maybe you need a reality check.

Oh, I understand your position completely. I really do and you're right, our success is based on our actions and not the news.

In Syria, the rumor started out that the leader was going to use nerve gas on his citizens. Wonder who started that rumor. The president and many other cabinet members public ally stated that the US would react if he did it. Laura Ingraham and others called for A PRE EMPTIVE STRIKE. Syrias leaders made a statement that they had no intentions of committing that act. The next day the president said that he had come off of an order that he had made regarding a possible strike. FOX NEWS REPORTED THAT THE PRESIDENT IS BASICALLY TELLING THE SYRIAN LEADERS TO GO AHEAD AND KILL 100,000 people.

Now, when you and I hear that, we know better. Many many others do not. They don't know that FOX NEWS supports the right, which is funded by the military contractors, that make HUGE SUMS of money. For you and I and those fighting the wars on both sides, it's hell. For them, it's wildly profitable. It's actually profitable beyond yours and mines intelligence.

We went into Iraq based on rumor, innuendo and yes, some bad intelligence.....but when the American People were told that Sadaam had hit the towers......we were all in......there's over 100,000 dead people.

There's my reality check.

There is not one news network, whether conservative supporting or liberal supporting, that has had one thing to do with any war - ever. One good reality check that is totally opposite of what you are suggesting is the company GE. GE is supported by the left and publicly by the White House, yet it is the number one company benefiting from the Irag reconstruction. It also is a huge company in Iran. You might not agree with conservative views, but dreaming up these wild scenarios just to support your opinion doesn't exactly sway anyone to your way of thinking. If your political views are left leaning, then so be it. They are your views and you are entitled to them. However, please respect those who have views different than yours. Concocting these ludicrous schemes to try to drive your point benefits no one.
