Killing a homeless person means only "a bit more" than stepping on an ant?
You are sick.
And killing a cop is "much more" than killing a homeless person?
Why? Because a cop is providing a service to society and the homeless person is not?
Well, then why is abortion wrong? A fetus is providing no service either.
Sure, someday it might. But then again, so might that homeless person.
You can't have it both ways.
How did I know you'd miss the point???
Killing Babies in the womb.... Might be your cup koolaid...
I'd say... you are the sick one!

Now aline that with the FBI Stat's on the US Prison Populations and where the crimes happen about 90% of US Violent Crimes take place in Cities over 200,000 people... With a large number of Gangs, both Hispanic and Black, making up a large segment of that... Knowing the Demographics of such groups the Vast Majority support and agree with Liberal political policies...
So I stand by the Rational observation that Prisons are Overwhelmingly Democrats and Liberals... I think 90% sounds about right for the populations...

Now the Golden Calf for Christians is adopted from the Pagan God Tammuz symbol "see: Ezekial 8:14 " the crucifix. Christians pledge allegiance to the flag under "Satan the God of this world" showing that they are still worshipping symbols just like the ones that Moses murdered.
YAA,curious would have been murdered by Moses for their pagan worship.

We do not worship the flag, or the Cross...

I don't wear a helmet because I understand physics, DOT and Snell ratings and the stat's from my last ome state of Michigan that had a helmet law for many years and then changed the law to No Helmet...
a 2 lb helmet has a very heavy Inertial mass at 60mph.. While the impact rating under DOT and Snell of about 25mph... The Inertial mass causes the head to be forced into an impact that may have not occurred without the added mass... It also causes a greater rate of spinal damage... In Michigan the Death Rate due to head injury did rise by about 2% after they passed the No Helmet laws but the number of Paralysis due to spinal cord damage Dropped by 28%...
Then there is the issue with helmets limiting vision and hearing potential crash situations until the last moment ... In all states that have dropped mandatory helmet laws and seen a reduction of crashes in the first place...
A friend of my dad's, another "Goldwing" rider... turned left from the outside lane making a U turn... a car clipped his back wheel, knocking the bike over, he bumped his head, walked away from the accident...
Died later from bleeding in his head... No Helmet!
Busey... No Helmet, and look at him now...
Helmet or no... No man knows the time of his recall!

Those who worshipped the calf had been instructed not to do so and were given the reasons why they should not do so. It would be detrimental to the wellbeing of the entire congregation ,as you well know
They knew full well there would be cosecuences as you well know
Not only that , They were given the opportunity to correct the error of their ways , which they refused as you well know.
They had no one to blame for their fate but themselves as you well know
Great post!

Being a liar was only half the equation to being an antichrist. He believes the Jesus came in the flesh. Still you cannot claim using
2John 1:7 that the Pope is the antichrist.

"those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh.......the antichrist".

Now as far as being a liar the bible clearly shows all men are liars.

Romans 3:4
Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge."

Antichrist Equation
(Liar +[rejects Jesus in the flesh])= antichrist.

Somehow, I just don't see Crips and Bloods being obsessed with politics one way or the other. What I have seen is that you are remarkably similar to curious, except that you insert "liberal" where he inserts "atheist".

Jesus did not pray to Jesus and he didn't write or even review a single sentence of the Bible.

Where did you get the idea that I like HOA's? As far as not having to think very much, since I'm not the one who stays glued to CBN and Faux, you're in no position to chip golf balls at my lanai.

Man, what's up with the xtian obsession with DEATH? You dwell endlessly on Rapture, Armageddon, final judgement, etc., etc. and attempt to blot out every trace of honest reason for a vague and uncertain chance that you'll somehow qualify for Yahweh's Immortality Lotto.

I used to go on ABATE poker runs - from bar to bar. Nothing says biker safety like a few belts and petitioning to remove helmet laws. The "helmets increase inertial mass" claim is just as frivolous as "Loud pipes save lives." I'd stick with "helmets obstruct operators' vision and impairs hearing."
So to appease the masses, JEB repealed the helmet laws back when he was gov. Strangest thing, by and large the kids on crotch rockets wear full helmets and the old farts on cruisers don't wear anything (except maybe a novelty skull cap to put stickers on).(And don't get me started on the new geriatric riders on overpowered mobility scooters... I saw one wobbling >at a full stop< the other day.) What voting bloc did JEB actually appease? Just goes to show that wisdom doesn't always come with age.

I know a guy that knew a guy that had a friend that had an ingrown toe nail that he cut and it was fine... In a week it got infected and he died...

I also knew a guy (actually two)that never got on a scoot without full face helmet, racing leathers and boots... One died last year after 6 years as a paraplegic and the other I visit from time to time and I helped build the ramp for his wheel chair to get to the front door.....

Ok... When Crips or Bloods actually vote (And they do) what party do you think they vote for? Who do their family and friends vote for?

I really doubt more than a single digit proportion voted for a Conservative...

That's because he thinks they are related issues and I can see why because most Atheists are Liberal... The difference is that while he is correct that the Majority of Atheists are Liberal I know that the Majority of Liberals are not Atheists...

I'm neither atheist nor Democrat and still get accused of both, but I'll admit that when it comes to challenging whack nuts, I am probably more likely to tick off a tea party stooge than a green party flower child.

A different opinion on what is justice and it involves killing, is the very definition of the subject (murder)!
Murder is an unjust killing. If we differ on what is a just killing, then we differ on what is murder. Do I need to explain this any more? It is just English.
You feel it is just to kill someone due to their religious beliefs, I do not. Simply put, I think it is murder, you do not.

Consequences can mean many things. When you decide to kill someone for worshipping a calf, American justice would call it murder.
Evidently you have a different and double standard for Moses. I do not. I hold the same standards for him as I would anyone.

It is a question of what is moral.
Now you claim the group would have been harmed somehow due to some worshiping a calf. Please tell us how? And please do not assume I know what is in the mind of yourself. We have extremely different thoughts. For example, I see killing someone due to worshiping a golden calf, murder. You do not.

America was not founded upon values like this. In fact, they are polar opposites. America has a fundamentally different opinion of what constitutes a just killing(murder).
