Uhm...ok. My comments:Good points. I don't know which to respond to first.
America IS a great country and in my opinion the best country in the world.
I feel saddened and ashamed of the breakdown of the American family structure that was so solid for two centuries.
I've been divorced. I'm Christian. WTF?
My brother knocked his gf up then got married at their church, "before God", when she was nine months pregnant. He's a Christian. WTF?
My other brother leeches of the govt payroll by having more and more kids that he can't pay for. He's a Christian. WTF?
My other brother is a borderline pedophile bastard. He's a Christian. WTF?
This kind of stuff happens to a LOT of Christian, American families.
I think we are all the growing plant that was seeded by Satan, which had a profound turning point in 1962.
First, you didn't actually address the majority of my post. That's ok, but I want it to be clear that I, very strongly, suggested other, sophisticated and complex causes for the problems America is currently facing.
Second, what is not-Christian about getting divorced? Are you supposed to remain in an unhappy marriage just b/c you're a Christian? That doesn't make sense to me. Are you telling me that your deity either wants you to be perfect in picking out your wife, or He wants you to suffer?
Third, I fail to see what is not-Christian about getting married while pregnant. Is this honestly an issue? Does your brother feel guilty about that? Did he have to carry out some ritual cleansing or something?
4th...Uhm...sorry to hear about your other brother. I hope the people he's attracted to are of legal age. Pedophile to me means, like, pre-pubescent. I'm hoping that's not what you meant, but you just meant "post-pubescent, but not quite legal. And he doesn't do anything bad."
5th. Very sorry to hear you using Satan as a concrete explanatory device and not as a metaphor.
