Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

As you will note some places allow sale and others don't.

That is why they urge you to get the little booklets with the license.

It has gotten very complex over the years. And a lot more restrictive.

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA — At South Korea’s most prominent cathedral, worshippers must come early. Like they do every week, Catholics attending midday mass at Myeongdong Cathedral in Seoul on Sunday waited in long lines outside in the hope of getting a seat.

While large attendance is the norm at the church located in one of the capital’s busiest shopping areas, Sunday’s sermon held special significance ahead of Pope Francis’ visit. He arrives here Thursday for a five day visit, his first trip to Asia as pontiff.

The visit highlights the remarkable growth of the Roman Catholic Church in a country that has defied international trends by simultaneously becoming more wealthy and more religious. Since the last visit of a pope to South Korea in 1989, the number of Catholics here has almost tripled, rising to more than 10 percent of the population and a third of all Christians.

You need a broader understanding of those laws and reasons for them. They are for managing the resources.

Limits can be dropped and other restrictions lifted as situations present themselves to keep keep nature in balance. Food is not to be wasted. Drawdowns and droughts have caused many regulations to be suspended. Better than a body of water full of rotting fish.

Same applies to overpopulation of deer and other animals.

Quit arguing for the sake of just arguing. They had bream on the menu.

Right, it is illegal to sell wild meat without USDA inspection. You cant even have wild game processed in the same facility as meat that will be sold. Or even your own hand raised beef, pork or chicken. Must be totally separate.

You can have private dinners and eat any or all of it, but as far as a restaurant serving it full time, I am not sure how they would handle that.

Not fascist? Not a dictatorship? Your pretty pink and fluffy dream of the light hearted and gentle nature of the US is so touching.

You will toe the line, you will proceed as we want, you will form your government in our image, you will not do anything to upset the delicate senilities of the American public - You will allow extradition of your citizens who break US law to the US as US demand but we will never reciprocate for US citizens who break your laws.

The CIA are the most dictatorial organisation on this planet and ask any of the inmates of Guantanamo bay just how fascist the US military can be.

And you forgot the Israeli terrorist killing innocent women and children under the protection of the UN (and killing an 8 year old girl under the protection of cease fire) But I suppose you consider that sort of terrorism to be ok because you help finance it.

Seems you are always OK with terrorism that you help finance. Hypocrite.

Two wild accusations.
1. Church on every corner
2. Preachers making profit
You'll have to excuse mot for not taking your word for it.
1. In some areas of the SE USA there are towns with more churches than street corners. Can’t remember the name but I passed through a small town, one street – no corners – 3 churches... get over it

And of course can’t forget Las Vegas, the gambling capitol of the world. More churches than casinos

2. So you are saying that preachers go on for a few weeks, then starve to death for lack of food. Benny Hinn... Joyce Meyer... Kenneth Copeland... Creflo Dollar... Eddie Long... want more? Tell me have you ever seen a down and out preacher?

So whether you tale my word for it or not is not really my problem but your delusion...

My objection is lack of consent (and of course it just as good to shoot buck down with as anything else) but of course you being a christian and all, you see no problem with denying consent and mutilating children who have no voice of their own do you?

I will stop when men stop telling women what to do with their bodies. Think that is ever going to happen?

Yes it sound like the sort of thing a pig ignorant chauvinist christian would say, are you a pig ignorant chauvinist christian?

You get your political philosophy from the slime ball war criminals interred at Gitmo.

No wonder you're so fucked up.

Where do you get your dietary advice - from cockroaches?

The Gitmo prisoners should be lined up and executed by firing squad. That would be a humane and patriotic act.

And it doesn't have to even be a full time church. Quite a number of years ago (more than 10) the guy I dated worked with a part time preacher. He would preach every other weekend at certain churches and received $1800 a sermon. This is a black country preacher.

Another person I worked with was in constant debate as to whether the flock should buy the preacher a Mercedes Bendz or another ultra expensive car that year. Small town preacher.

Very lucrative job. Lets all hone our acting skill and take it on the road, shall we?

You must be a lying godbot of exceptionally little intelligence. And given the typical low intelligence of the average lying godbot that really is something, you should be proud of.

Or is it that your preacher has been telling you tales of good christian hatred for anyone who does not believe in their version of the abrahamic god myth and you fell for them hook line and big wooden cross with pretty ights around it.

So funny how you never complained when I.S .(note you numbskull that they have changed their name)... never complained when they were killing thousands of Shiite Muslims and Yazidis

So what you are saying is that freedom of religion only applied to christians?

You are just another lying godbot hypocrite and a disgrace to the name of christianity
