Harris adopts Stalin's version of humanism.
I have little doubt that a ruling regime composed of humanists like Sam Harris would, under the proper circumstances, murder significant portions of their own citizens.
A majority, 58% of atheists who historically held power, have done so.
Which is SO funny considering what a wimpy little wussy he is. Big words from a fluffy worm.

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?
The Golden Rule implies that no one is boss of anyone else.

Obamacare will selectively phase out the elderly and disabled by forcing higher cost "healthcare" and restricting access. We already see it. The approved doctor for my 85 year old father who is confined to a wheelchair is located across town where there is limited handicapped parking and he is forced to go up to a fifth floor office. There is no other option unless he pays higher premiums that he can't afford.

No that's not it at all. The poor are poor mostly due to their own doing. They already get a free ride from the taxes paid by the wealthy, why do they deserve more? If they don't want to progress their lives in any way, that's their fault.

Spot on.
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.
Funny how she didn't last long as Sec. of State, isn't it?

Yeah. The Christians warned us about them.
The liberals frowned on that, wanted to get along.
Yep, they're already handing our country over to belligerent, foreign hostiles...

You can guess how this kind of ploy would go over if U.S. citizens tried the same rude shyt in a Mexican school.

Right. Because the poor had the incredibly bad judgement to be born to poor parents.[/sarcasm]

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.
Why do you begrudge Christians the same privileges that you enjoy?
You own at least one gun, it's a biggie too. Hypocrite.

Obama's cult is a hateful one. Pity the elderly and the unborn.

You sarcasm not withstanding, being born poor doesn't mean you have to stay poor. Some people strve to be the best they can. Phil Robertson is a prime example of "rags to riches". He had an idea, expanded on it, took out loans to get started, worked his ass off for decades and is now a multimillionaire. He chose not to stay poor.

You offer pity without looking at the whole story.

You want tax money handouts just because someone doesn't have a lot of money in the bank.

You want tax money handouts for the miraculous and difficult task of pregnancy.

You're pathetic.
