Your doubts will be quickly confirmed if you visit the "Bush Is a Hero" thread.
Yeah, I'm sure that they would be. I used to be active on the political Topix threads until we left the States, and I know that you are right.

It was the same war there as it is here, only centered around politics instead of religion. And the conservatives posting there were just as off putting as the theists that I later encountered after I switched gears following expatriation.

If you are interested, here are some representative posts from those days. Same style, different subject :

[1] http://www.topix.com/forum/military/army/TL1L... [How martial law can end a republic]
[2] http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T... [Phony conservative ideology]
[3] http://www.topix.com/forum/personal-finance/m... [Bush scared America black]
[4] http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T... [Patriotism is a religion]

I ask myself why I still care enough about the religious issues in America to try to help, but not the political ones. I think it has to do with the hope factor. I have no hope left for American liberalism. It seems mortally wounded. The death of Americanism as I knew it, which is a liberal philosophy, appears to be a foregone conclusion in the process of unfolding itself now.

But there is more than hope for secularism. It seems like a done deal as well, but a win. It's the church that appears mortally wounded in this struggle. After decades of losses and failures, I just grew weary of the hopelessness of American politics and found I preferred the religious debate.

How horrible it must be for Christian Americans to be losing on both fronts, God and country.

You're WRONG- again.

And as adults, we ALL know there are times we have to put up with other people's bullshit. And most adults who are CIVILIZED know that resorting to physical violence is not the answer and is not the solution.

Someone who is TRULY not a coward walks away at the first sign of trouble and someone who actually knows how to use their brain knows that.

I'll just BET you suffer from one of the worst cases of road rage to be found. You should get a handle on your Type A personality.

But, this is exactly what your religion states, all they have to do is "believe" in it, and they're in your homes again.
believing is the 'jumping off point' repentance is required when you believe in the one who died and shed His blood to be THE scarifice of remission for all sin.

repent means to 'turn away from'.

I SAID "walk away from a FIGHT"- I said nothing about everyone who looks sideways at them.

Those with limited intellectual capacity are those who are quick to resort and respond with physical violence.

You are teaching your kids to be THUGS which makes them NO better than those who are bullies.

That verse is Matthew is irrelevant to a single person fighting a single person. It means to not wage a pointless war or fight. Jesus was born to die for us. That was His purpose. Don't even try to compare the two.
Defending yourself is NOT revenge. Get a clue.
You don't know how to read, do you?

“But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also” Matthew 5:39

"SomeONE"- that is ONE person, RR. "turn to HIM the other also".

"Him" is ONE person, RR. A "PERSON" is ONE person, RR.

You mock and distort the very words you claim to believe in.

Not to mention that at the end of Nano's post to which Patty is referring, Nano told me to "learn some culture,*creep*".

But Patty didn't see that- it's what the fundies do- they not only cherry-pick the bible to suit their twisted and warped agendas, they cherry-pick posts here as well to also suit their twisted and warped agendas; of course, how could their agendas being anything BUT twisted and warped given just how twisted and warped their "thinking" is?

"Thinking"in quotes because so many fundies do NOT do what is actually THINKING.

FEMA, a secular agency of a secular government, does more after disasters than your church. Much more. MUCH, much, much more. Just ask Governor Christie.

"One of Mitt Romney’s biggest supporters, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, had nothing but praise for President Barack Obama today, as his state prepares to rebuild from the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

“I have to say, the administration, the president himself, and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate have been outstanding with us so far,” Christie said on Good Morning America.“We have a great partnership with them." http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/10/...

Partnership, huh? Who bashes FEMA? Here are three recent articles:

.. thoughtful post, thanks ..

.. other than man, no other beast on earth practices a religion. We'll de-humanize a member of our own species, betray our family, even slit our neighbor's throat to spread the glory of God and save our brother from hell ..

.. because of diverse interpretations of holy books and doctrine, religion separates and peaceful coexistence as equals in a pluralistic society does not exist. Just think of Derek or 9-11. That is the moral failing of all religion ..

Hey- how about GROWING a pair and admitting that Nano was indeed uncivil to ME by calling me a CREEP in the post of hers you claimed was not at all uncivil?

Why are so many of you fundies such a smarmy and underhanded lot?

really? how many TV's, radio and cassettes do you suppose there were in the 1800's all the way back to the begining of history?

So if someone attacks you and you do the RIGHT thing by telling law enforcement that means you are "tattling"??!!??

Look, RR- by telling your kids it's okay to use physical violence you are taking the easy way out and the path of least resistance.

Consider the following:

1. Your son gets hit.

2. He calls you if not from a cell phone- since your kids don't have them- then from the phone in the school.

3. Your kid also informs his teacher and the principal and any other school authorities right after he is hit.

4. The school authorities then bring the kid in who hit your son.

5. The parents of the kid who hit your kid are called.

6. If the issue is not resolved with the school having been informed and the parents of the kid, you then call the police.

7. The police WILL DEFINITELY pay a visit to the home of the kid who hit your son.

8. The police would then read the kid the RIOT ACT and would inform him of the consequences of having hit your kid and will also warn the parents that such actions could land their son in juvenile hall and that he could be taken away from his parents.

9. The kid who did the hitting would then know what he did was not only wrong, but was very serious and that he actually committed a crime for which there could be very serious consequences.

I realize all of the above would take time, effort and action on YOUR part, but since you are obviously LAZY, it is MUCH easier for YOU to simply tell you kid to hit BACK.

So not only does what you're teaching your kids go against what your Jesus preached, it also goes against our man made governing laws.

Indeed it was wrong of the kid to hit your son; however, it is no less wrong that your son retaliated with the same physical violence.

If your son doesn't want to be hit, he should not be hitting others nor should be be taught that to do so is okay- it's NOT.
