This is from the American Journal of Eidemiology...
"Trends in Alcohol and Other Drugs Detected in Fatally Injured Drivers in the United States, 1999–2010"
"Drugged driving is a safety issue of increasing public concern. Using data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System for 1999–2010, we assessed trends in alcohol and other drugs detected in drivers who were killed within 1 hour of a motor vehicle crash in 6 US states (California, Hawaii, Illinois, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and West Virginia) that routinely performed toxicological testing on drivers involved in such crashes. Of the 23,591 drivers studied, 39.7% tested positive for alcohol and 24.8% for other drugs. During the study period, the prevalence of positive results for nonalcohol drugs rose from 16.6% in 1999 to 28.3% in 2010 (Z = &#8722;10.19, P < 0.0001), whereas the prevalence of positive results for alcohol remained stable. The most commonly detected nonalcohol drug was cannabinol, the prevalence of which increased from 4.2% in 1999 to 12.2% in 2010 (Z = &#8722;13.63, P < 0.0001). The increase in the prevalence of nonalcohol drugs was observed in all age groups and both sexes. These results indicate that nonalcohol drugs, particularly marijuana, are increasingly detected in fatally injured drivers."

"According to U.S. President George W.

Clarke believes Bush took office with a predetermined plan to invade Iraq.[22] General Wesley Clark, the former Supreme NATO Allied Commander and Joint Chiefs of Staff Director of Strategy and Policy, describes in his 2003 book, Winning Modern Wars, his conversation with a military officer in the Pentagon shortly after 9/11 regarding a plan to attack seven Middle Eastern countries in five years: "As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan."..."

One More Time:

The Jewish Law Caiaphas claimed Jesus broke was Blasphemy, claiming he was God, equal to/with God. But Jesus never answered that question, so a Blasphemy Charge wouldn't hold up with The Jewish Sadducees to rule in Caiaphas' favor to level against Jesus, to kill Jesus for that Religious Crime.

Pilate would not have cared about that. As I stated, he didn't intervene in Jewish Law.

Pilate did allow The Jews to decide the fate of Jesus.
Pilate found Jesus guilty of no crime after he asked him: "Are you The King of The Jews"? Jesus said nothing.

During Passover, which The Roman Governor attended, The Governor would release one Jewish prisoner as an act of good will. Since he found Jesus guilty of no crime, he asked the crowd who they wanted pardoned, Jesus or Barabbas The Crowd chose Barabbas.

That's when Pilate washed his hands.

So, while we agree on the above points ( I Think - hard to tell with you )...
We'll agree to disagree on your first point/sentence.

And knock off the juvenille insults. And that chip on your shoulder.

PS And stop Ass-Uming. I never attended Sunday School. You Ass-Ume ALOT.

The PRINCIPLES of the New Testament are different than the PRINCIPLES of the Old Testament.
When you attempt to characterize Christian beliefs, you find them in the New Testament.
If you need, write these two statements on the chalk board a thousand times if you can't remember them.
Let me know if you need someone to interpret the above statements for you. I mean, you think you need someone to interpret the Constitution for you, and it is written so the average person can easily read and understand it.... so, you might be someone with special needs.

So you're claiming the Old Testament is NOT the word of God son?

that is the myth of the bible, but that same bible says there was a worldwide flood in the times of humans, so it is not a reliable source. now the history of Pilate shows he never would have given the jews any say at all it never would have even come up as an option. he committed treason. he was crucified and his bones were left on golgotha like all the other traitors...

R.I.P. Republican credibility: Why their latest blatant lies show they’ve given up

From Obamacare to Keystone, here's why they're no longer a legitimate entity that deserves to be taken seriously

We’ve long argued that the Republican Party is no longer a legitimate governing party. Never mind whether we agree with them on any particular policy issue, they are simply no longer a serious organization.

That fact was underscored again this week and over the weekend, in light of the release of two different official reports, one from the U.S. State Department on the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline project and another from the Congressional Budget Office on the economic outlook in light of the Affordable Care Act.

Never mind whether you agree with the Republican position on either of those two policies. The fact that the party feels it necessary to blatantly lie about what’s in each of those reports, specifically with regard to “job creation,” in order to advocate for their own policy positions, underscores yet again that these are simply not serious people are worth being taken seriously anymore …

Keystone XL Jobs Lie

After years of claims by Republicans that the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would “create tens of thousands of jobs,” we now have some hard numbers on that, at least from the U.S. State Department, if you choose to believe them.

Last year, while pushing for the KXL, House Speaker John Boehner released a statement claiming that the pipeline “will create over 20,000 direct jobs and 100,000 indirect jobs.” On Friday, as the State Department released its “Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement” on the project, Boehner once again released a statement reiterating his previous claim that the pipeline would bring “more than 100,000 jobs.”

The trouble is, that’s not true. At least according to the actual State Department report, which was the occasion for Boehner’s Friday statement.....

'Once the proposed Project enters service, operations would require approximately 50 total employees in the United States: 35 permanent employees and 15 temporary contractors.'

That’s it. The Keystone XL Pipeline will offer 35 permanent jobs in the U.S. for the life of the pipeline, according to the U.S. State Department’s final analysis.

That’s a far cry from Boehner’s claim on Friday, after the report came out, that KXL would bring “more than 100,000 jobs … with it.”

Of course, Boehner’s hardly the only one in the Republican Party disingenuously making such unsupported claims about KXL. Last year, GOP Chairman Reince Priebus took to Facebook to claim that “The Keystone Pipeline would create thousands of jobs.” Last week, he took to Twitter to claim that “721,000 construction jobs have been lost,#Keystone remains unapproved.”

Perhaps Priebus was referring to something other than Keystone with that 721,000 number — it’s unclear from his tweet — but if his message was unclear, that would be no accident. His quarter of a million followers on Twitter heard it loud and clear. He, like Boehner, was willing to lie to them in order to advocate for the pipeline — a pipeline that would result in 35 permanent American jobs.

Again, whether you support or oppose the pipeline doesn’t really matter. Whether you feel temporary jobs are good enough, that’s fine. But knowingly lying about the jobs that it will or won’t “create” is what we find grotesquely offensive here.

"Pillownauts!"

'NASA ultimately paid more than 17,700 employees—97 percent of its staff— to do nothing for 16 days as a result of the shutdown.8 These hardworking employees, caught in factors outside of their control, should not be confused with the “pillownauts” the space agency hired to lie around in bed and do nothing for 70 days'

No, they do not worship the same God.

The Christians worship God The Father, God The Son/Yeshua ...
The Muslims do not believe in God The Son.
And God The Father is a very different God from The Judaic/Christian Faith.
Allah is a Moon god, from the ancient mystic religion of Kabbalah.

God did not tell The Christians to slaughter all the infidels ( non-believers in God The Father, God The Son ), conversion by The Sword.

While The Old Testament Laws are similar to Islamic Law, similar, Jews evolved.
They do not behead for non conversion, nor stone people since the days of old/ancient times for breaking Religious Law.
And God did not "tell" believers in Christ to carry out those same barbaric acts.

And don't even bring up The Knights Templar Crusades. The Crusaders were not fighting for a religious belief/faith in Christianity, but for land, to take it back from The Ottoman Empire,( Turkey ), for The Roman Empire.

Agree. Both Judaism and Islam are patriarchal dominated.
As is Christianity to a lesser degree.
But, Christ was the first feminist.
A study on Mary Magdalene proves that. But, the male dominated board of Christian scholars diminished her role as an original Disciple, her importance in The Movement.

So what, Eva Braun, wants to ban books now ?

If you believe The Bible is one of the worst moral guidelines ever printed, then you have to include The Quran. Women have No Rights according to Sharia Law outlined in The Quran.

And Christ's message as a teacher ( not even as Deity ) is powerful.
Love, Equality, Charity, Forgiveness, Justice ...

Want to ban all of those Societal Ethics as well ??
