Nathan Deal, governor of Georgia, doesn't like ACA. He, along with the Georgia legislature, have refused the federally funded expansion of Medicaid.

Deal has his own idea about making health care more affordable...deny health care to the poor.

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. The biblical model for government is authoritarian - divinely appointed kings. This pattern of authoritarian rule also appears in the relationship between god and man, divinely appointed king and subject, husband and wife, parent and child, and master and slave. Nobody takes surveys or counts hands in heaven or in any of these earthly relationships just described.

Sorry, but you Christians brought this topic to the thread. You're more than happy to slander unbelief by conflating it to terror and genocide, but that's the church's history. Now you have to hear the truth about what it is that you are defending

Humanists have taken government away from your church, and the world is better for it. But just before they did, you could smell witches burning, and I have no reason to believe that if the church had that power restored to it tomorrow, that it wouldn't use it exactly the same way.

Do you know what Theocratic Dominionism and Christian Reconstructionism are? From http://www.publiceye.org/magazine/v08n1/chris...

"Reconstructionism argues that the Bible is to be the governing text for all areas of life--such as government, education, law, and the arts, not merely "social" or "moral" issues like pornography, homosexuality, and abortion. Reconstructionists have formulated a "Biblical world view" and "Biblical principles" by which to examine contemporary matters. Reconstructionist theologian David Chilton succinctly describes this view: "The Christian goal for the world is the universal development of Biblical theocratic republics, in which every area of life is redeemed and placed under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the rule of God's law."

"Epitomizing the Reconstructionist idea of Biblical "warfare" is the centrality of capital punishment under Biblical Law. Doctrinal leaders (notably Rushdoony, North, and Bahnsen) call for the death penalty for a wide range of crimes in addition to such contemporary capital crimes as rape, kidnapping, and murder. Death is also the punishment for apostasy (abandonment of the faith), heresy, blasphemy, witchcraft, astrology, adultery, "sodomy or homosexuality," incest, striking a parent, incorrigible juvenile delinquency, and, in the case of women, "unchastity before marriage." According to Gary North, women who have abortions should be publicly executed, "along with those who advised them to abort their children."

"The significance of the Reconstructionist movement is not its numbers, but the power of its ideas and their surprisingly rapid acceptance."

Did you know about this? Probably not. Vigilant humanists do.

Pastor Catcher knows not anger.
Yes, there is frustration with ignorant buffoons who waste 30 years of their life studying a book written by goatherders, and who lack health insurance coverage, and who resort to violence to resolve their personal issues.
This frustration is, I believe, understandable and justified.
But anger? Not at all, Redneck.

According to the Gospel of Luke, Jesus said he taught in parables so no one would understand him except the inner circle of disciples to whom he gave the real message.

"And he said to his disciples, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand." Luke 8:10

Jesus basically says almost everything recorded in the Canonical Gospels is worthless.

I disagree with that statement.
I believe many of our personal beliefs, including very basic beliefs, are the product of our life experience, coupled with our hard-wiring.
.. that's the reason for the questions ..

.. are we the sum total of our experience, is it hard-wiring, the influence of authority figures ??..

.. or, do all these things form personal beliefs ??..

I know, that's what you want them to see, that you ain't letting up, that you care more about their safety than their privacy.

Trust is earned, I don't rummage through my kids stuff as much as I used to, only about twice a month now. They've earned my trust, I've never found anything dangerous or bad in their stuff, aside from some questionable naked lady pics.
.. of course kids won't tell you everything; they have a need for privacy. Seriously, why do you have to know everything ??..
I don't want to know everything, it's not about that. It's about them knowing that dad is on top of things. "You can't fool dad", they say. They're right.

About not knowing everything; right now my son is at his friends house. Or so he tells me. I believe he's there because I've had no reason to doubt his word. Had I not intervened and snooped all these years, who knows.
