The 60's Democrat held different viewpoints according to geography. Hippies were a counterculture movement and as you say, they were to the left of Democrats no matter how you slice it...(unless you ask chuckleheads like YaA or Buck Crick, which is >the origin and crux< of this discussion) They opposed "the Establishment" represented by both parties.
We agree that Jesus was far to the left of both '60's and current Democrats, but that doesn't make him analogous to thousands of flower children.
Case in point: Growing long hair and wearing peace signs in '69 didn't make you a pioneering free spirit non-conformist individual when all of your peers were doing the exact. same. thing.

The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
Boy,, were you ever right with this statement!! Lol..!!

The atheist come out of the woodwork with just the mention of Bible Study!! You say there's a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ, I say it's an absolute fact that the Holy Spirit has brought many to Christ during Bible Study!

The "Pythagorean theorem" as "high school" math?

In Christianity, if the parents are Christian it is counted as a Christian family. If you choose to be whatever you want other than Christian, you are not "in Christianity." If someone who is Muslim, Jewish, Hindu or "other" dies, the LDS will posthumously induct them into their CHRISTIAN roles.
A given percentage of the world's humans have been, is and will be homosexual. That percentage does not radically change, so it does fit into the broad category of "normal." That is biology. Deal with it, bigot.
A vagina was not "made" or created by a god and again, that is biology - not morality or immorality. Deal with it.

Why are so many Christians addicted to porn? That bible verse it's a nerve eh?
Fifty percent of Christian men and twenty percent of Christian women report being “addicted” to pornography. What are we to make of these staggering numbers.

I have always been amused by this tenet of Catholicism: Murder someone, you're still a Catholic. Get a divorce, or marry outside the faith to someone who won't raise the kids Catholic and you're ex-communicated.
Therefore divorce and giving birth to non Catholic brainwashed kids are worse than murder
If your Mother was Jewish, that means you are Jewish, too. That's funny as well

I guess that's why Catholics are not really Christians!

Actually, it was the liberal wealth redistributionists (today's democrats) who had Jesus killed - they were living lavishly by taxing the hell out of the commoners.
And Jesus would not fit the liberal hippy mold - he never climbed up on the hood of police cars and took a shit.
Well said!
Good to see you again!

Paul wrote Romans, probably 25 years after the crucifixion. It isn't a part of the gospels - not that it really matters. What's your point?

I remind you again, Catholics wrote your Bible and every bible in the world is an offshoot from it.

Judaism is not a race, it's a religion. Mind your bigotry. There can be doubt who the father is, but there isn't any of who the mother is. It's a practicality thing, you wouldn't understand.

You love a story so much you are delusional over it. It's just Spock ears and hobbit feet costumed conventioneers taken to the extreme.

Yes, Jesus had a large impact. That does not mean he was much or any different than many sixties hippies.
My view is, Jesus died a martyr. And as martyrs go, the legacy is often blown out of proportion to the actual man.
Jesus may have also been one of the first to go the way of hippie cults. Being the first does give one status.
Jesus also pulled off the attachment of the established religion (Judaism) to his new age views.

Jesus followed John the Baptist and his group, so I feel he was of his peers.
I do think Jesus was on the leadership side of the hippie party. And he does seem to align more with the leaders of hippie cults more so than the followers.
Of course cultures change some of the dynamics, so obviously I am not claiming an exact replica of a sixties hippie.

I agree that Jesus was a new ager of his time, an ordinary man and that some of his message was pulled from kinder gentler (thus less popular among the mainstream and conservative establishment) Torah passages. What I have contention with is the comparison considering the lack of originality of modern hippies and new agers.

Certainly he was influenced by predecessors and peers, and aside from John the Baptist we'll never know exactly who, how many, to what extent and in what way since the early church did its utmost best to choreograph the record.(There is even speculation that he was learned in Hinduism, though I find that far fetched.) There is little doubt that he was the alpha dog in his group and an A type personality. There were bound to be similar contemporaries (of the hippie movement, as you put it) whose memories have passed into oblivion. If Pilate was sending them a message, it would appear to have had an effect - or it might just be that Public Relations Paul overshadowed the competition.
The stories don't tell of him being into self gratification the way the '60's hippies tended to be, but there is a definite intentional lack of data on anything that might be considered untoward.

I know where rocks come from and the difference between abiogenesis and the Theory of Evolution - it isn't my fault you don't.

As a Christian what side of the debate are you on regarding Latin American children trying to escape poverty,starvation and sex exploitation by CINOs in their country? Should they be turned away by true Christians? What would Jesus do?
