But then, it sounds like, and if i remember from your posts on other Topix sights, you're one of the 'citizens' that doesn't even take the time to be informed about your own country.
you've shown you don't seem that informed about a religion you profess to be a part of...
is there anything you actually care about?
That's YOUR story, Tick. And you can blow it out your ass.

they believed negros were lesser humans. they believed women could not be as smart as men..
it was more the day and age, but yeah, they believed in some pretty silly shit.
Really? Name them.

BTW, you forgot to prove there were "witch believers" among the Founders.

Don't move the goal posts, that is the provence of Liberals.

You claim to be a conservative, but you are unlike any I have encountered.

I think you are full of shit, personally. But perhaps you can name a political champion who best relates to your positions.

Now, was the Declaration of Independence the founding document of the United States, or not?

You are most likely confusing the current iteration of the GOP and its batch of radical far right idiots as conservatives. they are not.

All of the above, particularly your flaming disrespect for religious tradition that is the backbone of this country and your anti-gun stance.

I never claimed that the GOP is particularly big C Conservative. In fact, it's more center than right, which is why we lost the last two presidential elections. That and the collective White Guilt.

Who are these far right idiots"?

Of course you do. That's because you're a True Loving Christian.

But uh, the point that your threats mean less than zip to us doesn't seem to be sinking in to you, does it?
