Yeah. The Christians warned us about them.

The liberals frowned on that, wanted to get along.

Your value to this thread is limited to the example you make of the damage faith does.
It's much more personal than that. And your response is a perfect example.

I expose the 'rational atheist' oxymoron.

You expose the moral deprivation and cowardice of atheism.

Christianity is dictatorship, and Jehovah is its dictator, with his earthly representatives more than happy to tell you what he wants. Democracy is alien to the bible.
Yes, America is a republic, not democracy.

Christians are to exist in any country as a moral republican.

The 'rational humanist' oxymoron promotes democracy if it agrees with their position.

The difference between the American and French revolutions.

Smile.

The most basic fundamental of Christianity is submission and obedience. Christian doctrine loathes free will, which it repeatedly warns us must be defeated or else. Choice? Your god doesn't make suggestions. He issues commandments, and you are ordered to obey them. There are no appeals to its judgment, and no hope of mercy if found guilty..

Ah, and there it is again, the 'rational humanist' oxymoron response.

Damn, I'm embarrassed for you.

Did you see me forecast any kind of victory? No.
Do you have a question about something I DID say?
Yes, the tea party view is the majority view on most issues. The leap from there to political victory is a wide one, particularly in light of how democrats and their PR wing called "the news media" lie their asses off to portray the tea party as the Boogie-Man.
Remember the "report" of them spitting on the black congressman?
Remember the "report" of them holding the Confederate flag at the WWII memorial Obama closed down?
Both lies.
By the way, you might not want to mention, specifically, "Tea Party". Unless you want your federal tax returns audited.
People who are willfully paranoid annoy me.

So stop it.

If you feel persecuted, watch Faux News for a while.

And don't forget to vote.

What is the punishment for not driving in LA? Can you get jail time? A fine? No? Then shut thefuck up and don't compare it to Obamacare.

The ACA is a disaster. Let's just hope the republicans can muster up a worthy POTUS candidate.
The last thing we need is a Hillary in office.

A religion (or lack of) does not make a person great.

Obama's a piece of shit.

Yes, you did.

And if I were your wife, or your kid, I guess I'd have to shut up.

Or get hit by the Redneck.

Here though, you have no clout.

OH, my. Southern Baptists in Kentucky have discovered the perfect way to get rednecks to join their church.

From the Courier-Journal...

"In an effort its spokesman has described as “outreach to rednecks,” the Kentucky Baptist Convention is leading “Second Amendment Celebrations,” where churches around the state give away guns as door prizes to lure in nonbelievers in hopes of converting them to Christ."

Guns for Jesus.

What's wrong with being a Tea Partier?
You obviously think taxes are too low, government needs to be bigger, and the 2nd Amendment doesn't really exist.
Those views put you in the minority. The majority side with the tea party on those things.
What's wrong with that? Is the problem one of you just believing liberal lies and repeating them ? Does this mean you are a dumbass?
Bingo!
Where, exactly, did I say I am in favor of the things you accuse me of believing.

Or even, what did I say that logically leads to those things?

You, Buck, are full of it. As usual.

Just to point out...there are several possibilities of the positions I might hold...

Consider "I am not in favor of the tax cuts proposed by the Tea Party."

I might think...

1) "I am in favor of tax cuts, but not as extensive as what the Tea Party proposes."

or

2) "I think the current taxes are OK and neither need to be raised nor lowered."

or

3) "I think taxes need to be raised."

Buck thinks the only possibility is #3...which just goes to show that Buck does not think in a logical fashion. He thinks he does, but as demonstrated, he doesn't.

As pointed out recently, Buck often engages in arguments of the excluded middle...a logical fallacy. This is but one more example of such.
