“There is a twofold liberty, natural (I mean as our nature is now corrupt) and civil or federal. The first is common to man with beasts and other creatures. By this, man, as he stands in relation to man simply, hath liberty to do what he lists; it is a liberty to evil as well as to good. This liberty is incompatible and inconsistent with authority, and cannot endure the least restrain of the most just authority. The exercise and maintaining of this liberty makes men grow more evil, and in time to be worse than brute beasts: omnes sumus licentia deteriores. This is that great enemy of truth and peace, that wild beast, which all the ordinances of God are bent against, to restrain and subdue it. The other kind of liberty I call civil or federal; it may also be termed moral, in reference to the covenant between God and man, in the moral law, and the politic covenants and constitutions, among men themselves. This liberty is the proper end and object of authority, and cannot subsist without it; and it is a liberty to that only which is good, just, and honest. This liberty you are to stand for, with the hazard not only of your goods, but of your lives, if need be. Whatsoever crosseth this, is not authority, but a distemper thereof. This liberty is maintained and exercised in a way of subjection to authority; IT IS OF THE SAME KIND OF LIBERTY WHEREWITH CHRIST HATH MADE US FREE”

Neither can Christianity. Or any religion, for that matter. Except maybe poverty for the priests.

Do you have a point?

Tocqueville wrote that he did not know of any country where there was "less independence of mind, and true freedom of discussion, than in America".

So, you're quoting a man from almost 300 years ago. Do you have any idea how long that is? Of course not. You think an eternity is rational. Uh, and by the way, DeT thought America was pantheistic.

No, duh. There are no claims that it can. It also doesn't cause a raft of mental illnesses like Christianity does. Please don't drown your children in the bathtub to save them from sin and get them into Heaven, Andrea.

Your comments remind me of a quote in the Movie “SpongeBob Squarepants.”
Plankton said in a dominating voice he was going to take over the entire world.
SpongeBob said simply,
“Good Luck with that.”
I laid out an explicit case demonstrating that taxing churches was not only correct it was a necessity and you throw out a cartoon in rebuttal. Well, Jack, your religion is a cartoon, so, I suppose, in your tiny mind, somehow that makes sense. How do you have such tacit knowledge of cartoons? Do you ply the children with them before you try to touch them, Jerry?

I just wonder when you dentist takes a look inside, if he can see any stalactites and stalagmites growing from the upper chamber of the cave. Then of course there’s always the question of bats hanging around in there. Scary.
[tipping hat]
That's your rebuttal? Could your religion or its mouthpieces be any more shallow? So far, you've offered cartoons and simple insults about an avatar. What's next? Stuffed animals depicting planet-wide genocide by flood?

You don't have the intellectual capacity to possess a GED let alone a doctorate. I'd hate for you to be my dentist, as well. Your unscientific superstition does not lend itself well to any discipline where critical thought is necessary.

Put those pliers down, mooncalf, Christians aren't allowed to torture people in 2014. We stopped that in 2008.

He didn’t say anything about Mr. Hammurabi’s advice at the Salami & Specialty Cheese shop at the corner of Main Street and Dumbshet Avenue. Next time you are at Mr. Hammurabi’s store try to eviscerate the substitute for Calamari.
[tipping hat]
You're a half wit with a dying world view. Your kind used to be dangerous when your priests held power. Now you are just an impotent featherhead, clutching your pearls and tergiversating for your pocket god. I'd laugh at you if I didn't pity you. You dismiss this life for some notional, phantasmal eternity that you have composed between your ears.

Psst, Hammurabi wasn't Italian, mezza finnocio. The best advice in the Bible allows you to flush the Bible. Put away childish things. There is nothing more childish than fear of retribution or solace of reward from an imaginary friend. You can pine for the monotony of eternity without stimulation. Those of us that have put away childish things will just point and laugh.

Your avatar is an apt depiction of your imaginary friend, Harvey. It doesn't exist. If I were your doctor, I would recommend immediate treatment as an inpatient in one of the remaining mental health institutions not eviscerated by the Astrology President. You'll like it there. Like church, you'll be surrounded by your fellow delusionists where you can imagine that all avatars are real depictions and not the bat boy from Weekly World News. I recommend the helmet they offer to prevent injury. Your skull is already soft enough, Beetlejuice, from believing in the religious piffle you desperately cling to.

From that statistic, if say that not many, if any, Christians care much for what the bible demands.
They couldn't care less, most of them don't even know what it says.

The false witnessing is popular within christianity, they'll stick up and lie for each other no matter what.

Even if it's to protect a pedophile. A christian pedophile of course.

"It was his fault I killed him. If only he believed in Jesus. I'm not responsible for any of my actions or words. God said...."

Theism is a fool's paradise.

“The world is full of men who want to be right, when actually the secret of a man's strength and his pathway to true honor is his ability to admit fault when he has failed. God wants to fill the church with men who can say they are wrong when THEY ARE WRONG. A man who is willing to humble himself before God and his family and say:"I was wrong." will find that his family has all the confidence in the world in him and will much more readily follow him. If he stubbornly refuses to repent or admit he was wrong, their confidence in him and in his leadership erodes.”- Jim Anderson

Even a fellow god botherer thinks you're a fool.

Atheists will speak out.

Homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals will speak out.

Children will speak out with much encouragement and support.

Witches will speak out.

Natives will speak out.

The christians who don't like it, will just have to "deal with it".

Then there is Pat Robertson. He denounced Haiti after the January 12, 2010 earthquake, stating that Haiti deserved what it was getting because it swore a pact with the Devil back in 1791, in order to drive out the French. Cuckoo false witness.

Matthew Hale. Hale is currently serving 40 years in prison for attempting to solicit the murder of Judge Joan Lefkow. His church calls for a worldwide, racial holy war, to exterminate the Jews and all black people, in order to establish “a white world.” His reasoning: God is white; God created the Jews and black people to test the faith and resolve of white people; thus, killing a Jew or black person is not a sin. After one of his followers, Benjamin N. Smith, committed a deadly shooting spree, targeting only minorities, Hale “defended” his actions on TV by saying,“We do urge hatred. If you love something, you must hate that which threatens it.” Lunatic false witness.

Michael Bray. He served 46 months of a 10 year sentence for conspiring to bomb 10 abortion clinics in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D. C. He and his wife stand firmly on the Bible as the inerrant Word of God, and that because it preaches so firmly against homosexuality and adultery, then upon being convicted of either in a court of law, the guilty party should be put to death. Terroristic false witness.

Father Charles Edward Coughlin was a priest who used the radio to acquire a large audience for his political and religious propaganda. In 1936, he started praising and defending both Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini for their politics, and spewing some of the most despicable virulence against Jews to which the world had borne witness up to that point.He blamed the Great Depression on “an international conspiracy of Jewish bankers,” then blamed Communism, the Russian 1917 Revolution, and Marxist atheism on “global Jewry, in its attempt to lead people astray from the perfection of Lord Jesus.”He plagiarized a speech by Goebbels, then delivered it himself in a rally in the Bronx, September 13, 1935, giving the “Hitler salute.” And this is what he said. This is what Father Charles E. Coughlin, SJ. said,“When we get through with the Jews in America, they’ll think the treatment they received in Germany was nothing.” Fascist false witness.

Christian hypocrites are so ubiquitous that even the internet could not document them all.

True but we can certainly try.

I'm not familiar with Matthew Hale and Michael Bray, will do some reading, cheers for that.
