Here is where you got it, not from the alleged Locke papers to your left.
Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

"Natural law is also distinct from divine law in that the latter, in the Christian tradition, normally referred to those laws that God had directly revealed through prophets and other inspired writers. Natural law can be discovered by reason alone and applies to all people, while divine law can be discovered only through God's special revelation and applies only to those to whom it is revealed and who God specifically indicates are to be bound."
You are a fraud.
Uh huh. Because they are thematically similar means I copy and pasted it, is that right?

They are thematically similar because my summation is scholastically accurate.

Copy and paste would be a direct quotation. Copy and paste is what you've been doing. What would we expect from someone who's spamming the thread with direct copy and paste? The thief flatters himself that everyone else is a thief also.

You aren't able to rebut on point. Instead you misdirect with flaccid accusations. Your feeble attempt to back up your accusations is an abject failure.

The fraud is clear even to yourself, just as Barton is a fraud. The nut doesn't fall far from the rotted tree.

Flail away, silly man.

You could engage in the discussion, these dancing around the edge comments waste your time and mine.
I've tried having a discussion with you before, a number of times. Here's it goes. I mean, here's how it ALWAYS goes:

You ask a question.

I answer your question and then ask you a question.

You ignore my question and ask another question.

I answer your question and ask why you ignored my question.

You ignore my question about ignoring my question and ask another question…

and so on.

Tedious, yes?

Now, I just mock you and point out to everyone that you're not really here to have a discussion with anyone.

Enjoy!

It’s not like a US Army Recruiting Poster.“Uncle Sam wants you!” Instead the recruitment comes more in the form of subtle seduction and movies with underlying homosexual themes.
This selective targeting goes for individuals who are vulnerable such as someone who just went through a break up. Or during party times when the target is under the influence.
You're an idiot.

Do you find homosexuality seductive? Were you targeted by the secretive homosexual underground? Did you succumb or did you fight them off with garlic water and a cross?

Chris Clearwater is married to a homosexual. When they have sex, is he committing a homosexual act?

I like garlic on some foods and the only cross I have ever used was for removing tire lugs.

And there are underlying homosexual themes in a lot of movies these days. Starting in the 80’s until now.

Did you ever see the movie “Casino?”

Remember the part where they used the patrons head to open the door?

That will be you if you come and take a piss on the floor of most churches in America. We’re going to use your head to open the freaking door.

Expressing the belief that homosexuality is immoral is an unreasonable prejudice that causes harm.
A person who doesn't care that it causes harm, or one who won't accept that it does, who goes ahead and expresses those beliefs openly, to the detriment of society, is a bigot.
It doesn't matter if you or anyone else believes that these expressions are extremely harmful, because they are. Your failure to see the effect does not mean there isn't one. You've all been told, so you don't have a valid excuse. Faith is not an excuse.
Expressing the belief that homosexuality is immoral, is the moral failure, not homosexuality.
Best post I've read here to date.
Kudos to you!

Yes, it's a conspiracy. We homosexuals are trying to indoctrinate your grandchildren. We want them to be happy individuals living without your homophobic bigotry. Shame on us.

"The" truth? It's your truth, which is Dave Barton's truth. Most non-Christians reject those ideas. That's our truth.
But even if what you have is the truth, you seem to be aware of the harm to people that blurring the church-state division could entail. Truth isn't the highest good, and when telling the truth would cause a worse moral harm than lying, lying becomes the moral choice, as when an undercover cop or spy lies in the line of duty.
This seems to me to be awkwardly worded. Perhaps a second go?

Thanks. I found the Throckmorton link on the subject: "David Barton’s Founders’ Bible: John Adams and the General Principles of Christianity"
http://www.patheos.com/blogs/warrenthrockmort...
Thank you for that link. I believe it confirms much of what I had already said on the topic.

Begin apologizing.
Buck, proving Barton by quoting Barton is known as circular reasoning. It does not count as proof.

Yes. That is an exact quote.
So what?
I think this demonstrates to everyone, your theist allies included, that you have no understanding of "exact" at all.

No, "There is no God" is NOT an exact quote from the Bible. It is a snippet taken out of context (intentionally for the use illustrating my point) that says the OPPOSITE of the Bible's message.

Hint, if it comes across as saying the opposite, there is no way it is an exact quote.

You just earned an F in debate class.
