Nope. How many hateful remarks has your Christianity prevented? You are the one living in the glass house on this one, Tippo.

That statement by Tip assumes things that aren't true. He is just like Nate and it is a symptom of their religious zealotry. They insist on defining other people's positions, truth be damned, so that it neatly fits into their narrative.

easy you ignorant political ignoramus.

people of faith do not keep humans as pets or as farm animals. Democrats do, and went to war to fight for it and lost. Read your history you political nutcase.

The GOP freed the slaves. The GOP represents pro life. The GOP represents education to be self sufficient. GOP represents freedom.

PS: President Lincoln wanted to ship slaves back to Africa. Freeing the slaves changed the face of America.

Democrats represent unmoral sexual behavior, abortion, gun control, and stealing from workers to give to non workers. They use distortion and spin to reverse the actual slavery the democrats now pursue. You idiot left loons are slaves to the government. When the government shuts down you are homeless.

Drunk? Are you having trouble with your player roster, little girl? Wide Rider is over thataway.

It comes as no surprise that you've never heard of the Great Awakenings, the Quakers, Wesley, Finney, Wilberforce and every Pope after 1750.

By all means, continue embarrassing yourself, kid.

What is true is that you have asserted that each individual determines right and wrong for himself, from your "brain," as you said.

Therefore, my statement from post #1897 holds true:

Spirituality involves belief in spirit beings.
Atheism is a rejection of the spiritual world and, as a result, rejection of all religions.
Thick as a whale omelette you are.
You keep saying these things, but that does not make them true. As I've said before that you can't get through your head, not all atheists are the same. Religion can be anything one finds interesting and devotes his/her life to and spirituality is not defined by something being sacred. An atheist can find something to be sacred that does not include god or gods.

Capital punishment, as carried out by rulers [i.e., the state], is not murder.
Romans 13:3-5
For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.

With regard to our founding fathers, that slavery was a practice of their era does not make it moral...anymore than child sacrifice being a practice of the Mayan era makes it moral.
In fact, the very man who penned the Declaration recognized this truth and sought, with others, to lay the groundwork for an end to the practice.
http://www.monticello.org/slavery-at-monticel...
Sigh. It was considered moral THEN. It certainly wasn't IMMORAL, was it? Because it had people who spoke out against the practice doesn't mean the culture at the time didn't consider it acceptable behavior.

Call it what you like, but taking a man or a woman's life is murder. You just attach another couple of words to it to make it sound more tolerable. But when you strip it down, that's what it is. And for the bible to call people to be stoned to death for blasphemy...I'm sure you can see the lunacy in that. But then again, as I've stated, the bible contradicts itself quite often.

What religion were the folks who seceded from the Union and went to war to protect slavery? You seem to be forgetting that part. If Christianity was a guarantee of morality, as your thesis seems to suggest, then slavery never would have existed in so called Christian societies.

You gotta love the Christian definition of morality: "Look at all of this evil shit we eventually stopped doing."

No, that is not what I asserted. I asserted that I know right and wrong because of my brain. I never said that each individual determines right and wrong for himself. All the rest of your post is stuff that you imagine.

The political faces today are not representative of what they were then. Surely you must know that. Southern democrats were very conservative in nature and belief. They were political shifts especially between the 190s and the 1960s. After the Civil Rights Act, southerners became republican (during the Civil War poor whites and blacks were largely republican). Northern democrats of that time are more of an example of who democrats are today. Since southern democrats were largely in favor of secession (much like Tea Party members today), it would be difficult to draw a straight line between republicans in the 1860s to those of today. Do a little more reading and research.
