The recent beheading of an American Journalist James Foley by a British jihadist in Iraq. Brings to mind another American that died at the hands of the Brits. He was Nathan Hale and it was back in September 22, 1776.
Nathan was a young School Teacher and member of the Continental Army fighting for America’s independence in what is now New York City. The young officer was captured by the British while on a intelligence gathering mission.
Nathan Hale will be forever remembered for his last words spoken to the British right before they hanged him in a apple orchard. "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country."
James Foley like Nathan Hale died an American Patriot at the hands of a British Citizen. This tragic event brings to light how much we Americans enjoy the 4th of July. For God and Country. America the land of the free and home of the brave! I salute an American patriot James Foley.
What I.S did to James Foley is abhorrent, rest assured that his execution is seen as cowardly and repulsive by the vast majority of Brits. The sooner the perpetrator is identified and brought to justice (preferably the less tolerant US justice) the better.

However American patriotism?

Ahh you mean like those patriotic Americans who killed my grandfather

My grandfather was a British agent working with the French resistance to help pave the way for the D Day landings.

He was shot in the head by invading US troops for daring to protest and try to protect a French girl (another resistance member assisting the landings) from being gang raped by 6 of those US troops.

So in you view rape is patriotic?

Christine ,
You fail to realize you can't prove he don't exist !
Do you know your name as Christ in it ?
It's ok to be in denial !
But does it not puzzle you about the mystery of the unknown ?
But know this :
God made you!
He's loves you and very proud of you!
You may wonder why ?
It's because you are merely the messenger to teach a purpose !
E=MC^2 is proof that the god as depicted in KJV revelation 19:6 cannot exist in this universe at the same time as you.

But you fail to realise that you can’t prove your god does exist among the 3700+ other gods that people have made up during recorded history.

And what my parents chose to name me makes a difference... how? Do you know your avatar indicates that you are incapable of thinking and so have to believe what you are told to believe? So what is it you believe??? Devil worship? Black magic? Honey you want to have a go at my name please be man enough to shoulder the consequences.

Denial? What is to deny, there is nothing to deny, no evidence whatsoever. However there is considerable lack of evidence...

As for the rest, total irrelevance based on nothing more than your avatar and is totally irrelevant

see - when a person exposes fascism or racism, they will always be accused of it by a fascist or racist!
THAT'S how fascism and racism continues to survive and thrive!!!
Say what? You make fascist and resist statements, I highlight those fascist and racist statements so you then try to blame me for making fascist and racist statements?

Is it any wonder that I don’t like you?

For links showing that atheism does have different philosophies.
Thank you very much.
For links to books all from ONE author

The one you mentioned originally. Pity you never spotted that

Of course that author has his opinion in exactly the same way as you have a butt hole

If they were honest, they would say that their airplanes could not help religitards argue the irreducible complexity of the salmonella flagellum. No one else has, either .

If you want religitards to stop using the words "intelligent design" to mislead, I support you.

Bullfighting is nothing less than animal cruelty at its finest.
First step breedable strictly to be killed for amusement.
Now torture same bull with spikes to the back and irritate this poor creature that they think God created.
Entered the flashing Matador with his shiny sword woo hoo
Stab bull in the heart when exhausted and claim victory. Over the helpless animal? Real macho!
Totally disgusting and shameful for human beings to actually do this toward a harmless animal
I don't agree with it. It's a hangover from ancient times, when they used to sacrifice the bulls.

Cockfighting is also cruel, as are illegal dog fights.

Very good indeed. Went to great party on Saturday where the host hired a very good sleight of hand magician called Laura London. She's very good indeed, in fact she was the youngest female to make it into the Magic Circle (aged 17). It's the second time she'd performed for us. Highly recommended.

Last time I saw her, she was leaving ours to perform at an open coffin wake. The cool side of catholicism!

How about you?

Now that is a shocking story. Even when the opposition is as evil as they were in WWII, atrocities happen on both sides.

I spent most of the weekend in bed with what I think is bronchitis. First time I have had it (hopefully the last) and being a bank holiday I can’t get a doctor’s appointment until Thursday.

Between coughing fits and naps I did manage to catch Rosberg losing all credibility, no wonder both Hamilton and Wolff are a bit peed off with him

I’ve not been to an open coffin wake but have attended one or two Irish style wakes recently. The last, the guy who had died left 10K behind the bar with instructions to hire a couple of bands (one ceili one heavy rock – old men can still surprise) and make sure everyone has a great time to remember him by. Misnomer... I really don’t think many people remember much at all.

Conversation with God:

Was my mother a sinner?
God: yes
What did she do?
God: she was born
So being born is automatically a sin?
God: yes
Why did you do that?
God: Dad and I agreed she owes us for giving her life
Why didn't you create her perfect without any defect?
God: and give up my master creation of hell ? are you kidding? Even gods have a Caveat every now and then. Anymore questions?
No thank you, you have confirmed you are inferior Gods, I will appeal to Zeus to pardon you for your many sins.
I am right
