He's a Christian, isn't he?

You don't find that to be a positive quality?

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.

Big redneck hat, no cattle.

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.

You indulge in fantasy, Feltcher.

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.

No, Buck, as just shown, it means you are one.

BTW...thanx for the hate.

I conclude from being on this thread the the quantity of hate people will pour onto a person is directly proportional to his effectiveness at annihilating their arguments.

You are ignoring qualifiers, which is a trait I mostly associate with theists.

Please give more thought to what you say that RR gives to his statements.

They aren't giving them as door prizes, they're ragging them off. They have 25 guns to give away to a few thousand people, not everyone will win...

Be honest in your "reporting".

I tend to agree with you on this, and it's an important point.
If God's ideal system is a monarchy, why do Christians support a democracy on earth?
On the other hand, if we all have a little portion of the Divine in us, and that's where God operates, then democracy it is.
"Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven". Maybe that's a goal for the individual, not the monarch?
Ah, good. You finally show a tiny bit of enlightenment.

More bull shit.
Mitt Romney slapped that lie down Obama's throat in the televised debate. You remember? The debate where Obama looked like he wanted to cry and run off stage?
RomneyCare was 70 pages. No employer penalty. Contained no new tax. Bipartisan consensus between democrats and republicans in the legislature. Affected one state, allowing all states to work differently, whereas Obama care is one-size-fits-all.
Obamacare built in $500 billion in new taxes. Entirely partisan - not one republican amendment was allowed, not one republican vote was attained, and still required bribing democrats in certain states - "The Cornhusker Kickback"; "The Louisiana Purchase"; Bonuses of over $2 billion dollars were put in for Democratic senators from NE, VT, MA, MI, CT, MT, SD, ND, and HI.
You need to hit "Refresh" on you liberal lies, Stepped In Dog Shit.
"Mitt Romney slapped that lie down Obama's throat in the televised debate."

Right, Buck, because politicians never ever engage in revisionism.

(Yet another example of Buck's authoritarian personality. What ever his authorities say must be true.)

And note that Buck argues that "not exactly the same" = "completely different". More of Buck's black-and-white thinking.

Oh...big difference. I'm convinced.[/sarcasm]

Dictionary.com ...

door prize

noun

a prize awarded at a dance, party, or the like, either by chance through a drawing or as a reward, as for having the best costume.

Ah, yes, they count as door prizes.

(BTW...I suggest you use Google or other resources to fact check yourself before spouting such inanities. It will save you some embarrassment.)
