There are institutionalized religions under the banner of Christianity that deserve your criticism. But as Jesus said, we will know them by their fruits.
It's probably safe to say Christians have done more good in the world than any other faith.
Christians are the most giving people on the planet.
If you ask me, Christianity plays a significant part in keeping the world civilized. Love, forgiveness and compassion goes a long way.
Even some institutionalized religions get that most important part right.
Some have just gotten it very wrong along the way.
Actually Carol, both Judaism and Islam also have long traditions of caring for the poor. What's your evidence that Christians are the most giving?

Considering Republicans created this mess ( when are you tight whiners going to acknowledge that) and then starting in Jan of 2011, blocked every job bill, Obama has done OK in growing the economy.
Just think where we would be if Republicans actually gave a sh*t about their country more than their party.
But hey, be a good little right whiner & blame someone else for your own failures.

Well, I'm not trying to convert you or anyone else on here. Just setting the record straight for woodtick who brought it up and had it wrong. And shared one of my own experiences in response to one of your posts.
As much as I would love to see everyone turn back to God and not big government, this forum is about big government and the dangers of progressive liberalism. At least for me.
Everyone has to find their own meaning in life and, for some, it just takes getting beat up enough by life to realize there's hope in something even greater than life itself.
But I'd rather change the subject if you wouldn't mind.
Well Carol, Jesus was a progressive liberal. You’re basically making the logical fallacy that one's faith somehow would preclude an acknowledgement of government's role in society.

Clark County, Nevada.

The government claiims to own the land the ranchers are gazing on.
(Here's that pesky Constution again...)
The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution requires the government pay "just compensation" for land seized. If the government did not pay just compensation, then the government does not own the land.

Can anyone provide proof the federal government owns the land in Clark County, Nevada?(Proof of ownership is proof the government paid just compensation to Clark County, Nevada, or as the state constitution of Nevada defines otherwise with respect to authority over land ownership and seizure.)

In other words, does the govrnment actuall own the land it claims to own, or is the governent just lying to everyone again?

Related, what do Americans do to people who trespass onto land they don't own to rustle cattle?

Very obviously, the government was lying again when it stated the action was for the protection of some turtle. The government will allow cattle to kill the turtle is the tax the government imposed on that land is paid. So, it's very obvious the government was lying about this being to protect that turtle.

When was the last time anyone heard anything even resembling the truth come from this administration?

The Obamas paid an effective tax rate on their federal taxes of 20.4%. The Bidens paid $96,378 in federal taxes in 2013, a rate of 23.7%
Yeah, so? Those rates are pretty much in line with what the average tax payer ponies up.

Racist attack

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.— A longtime white supremacist from rural Missouri was arrested Sunday and held on a charge of premeditated first-degree murder in connection with a shooting spree in Kansas that killed three people at a Jewish community center and a Jewish retirement home.

Frazier Glenn Cross, 73 — known in Aurora, Mo., as Frazier Glenn Miller — was arrested at 1:28 p.m. and was booked into the Johnson County, Kan., jail in Olathe at 8:48 p.m. CT, according to the booking report.

Before being driven off to jail, Miller began ranting while in police custody, police said. A TV news video shows the suspect yelling what appears to be "Heil Hitler!" from the backseat of a police car.

The shootings at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, in Overland Park, Kan., and at Village Shalom, a retirement home nearby, occurred on the eve of Passover, a holiday significant in Judaism.

Among the dead were Reat Griffin Underwood, 14, who had come to the community center to try out for a singing competition, and his grandfather, 69-year-old William Lewis Corporon. Both were white Christians, according to family. The identity of the third victim, a female shot at the retirement home, still was not released early Monday. Two other people were shot at but escaped injury.

....from ZERO to 79 times and who is counting...

"The "Koch brothers" ....who went unmentioned on the House and Senate floors between February 1998 and December 2010.

But in March 2014, their names were called out 79 times—and no one cited them more than Reid. Already, the Koch brothers have been name-dropped 38 times in April."
