We do not share the same religious superstitions

So religions that interfere with our equal rights must be sent to the dustbin of history to keep their kinfolks company

Gosh...you should know what refrences you use.

The bloddiest regime in human history were the Marxists under the former Soviet Union..An express atheist regime.

The quote "the dustbin of history" (actually the "ashbin of history")- Is from Carl Marx. It was his prediction of what would happen to capatalism.

So there's more than a little irony in you using the refrence to talk about an "end to religion"

It was (of coarse) religions eventual extinction that was predicted by everyone from Freud to Marx. The Marxists were able to burn down and raise Church's..Imprision and kill hundreds of thousands of Priests, Religious Believers and their leaders.. Make religious belief a test for party membership and employment, suppress worship, speech and activity of the religious and religious organizations for generations.

Yet they could not wipe out religion..

They are so insecure that they challenge sources that are in historical and theological symetry with the overwellming bulk of historical and contemporary thought on these scriptural passages.

A short web search will elicit multiple refrences to multiple scholars both Christian and Jewish who read these passages as they were meant.

Why would they assume the good Rabbi was any different.

I can sleep at night because I have a "good conscience toward God." You will not have to worry about spending an eternity with me because you won't. If I were a Blasphemous HOMOSEXUAL, I would worry about who I was going to spend ETERNITY with however. Eternity is a long, long time without recourse. You can mock me and I'll let it slide. By the time you get to God, your "hope will have perished" as with all evil men.

Here's the problem with that theory
.
When a person decides to become a member of a church; he/she agrees to follow that particular church's approved reading material
.
So the expectation for episcopalians to follow jewish theology is futile

GOTCHA!!! When I can get a grown man to make comments like that to a woman he does not know, it illustrates exactly how you treat your mother who you know very well. God Bless Angelina!!!!

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Good luck sweetie, you are definitely going to need it.

Joe never goes anywhere without his Bible or Rabbi puppet, so you'll have to rethink the no weapons rule.
