Ron Paul is NOT a TRUE Christian! You are probably a Eucharist-munching Cathylick so before you open your yammering maw to receive a mouthful of Savior, please STUDY what it means to be a TRUE Christian. The WORST beast to come out of Poland was Karol Wojtyla...The Whore Wojtyla was head of the Whore of Babylon and currently rots in Hell, being raped by gay Devils dressed in Hugo Boss motorcycle boots, whips and snug tank tops. I'm glad your church's poll numbers are falling faster than an altar boy's pants in a Catholic rectory. You sicken me and all of Christendom. Tell your priests to release the catamites from the Vatican's sex farms... Glory!

Who needs critical thinking.
Critical thinking is nothing more but propaganda liberal BS studies. We have the holy bible to govern our live.

Yeah, with the holey buybull to govern you, you could end up b-b-queing the kiddies, for dinner on the grounds come Sunday noon.

Leviticus 26:29 doesn't reveal the ingredient list but if you are Baptist, you've already got the best recipes, probably handed down from one generation to the next.

Except for the spelling and English and grammar part.

Naturally not that...

... sad, sad example of another Texas educational failure.

This is in the wrong thread, it needs to go in the "Dumbest things posted by..." thread
Great job though, a very heartfelt post, I can see the brainwashing is strong in this one. It seems the GOP / Discovery Institute Creationists are giving free frontal lobotomies to their voters.
