If you really think our pledge has always said "one nation under god"- don't talk to me anymore.....I'm not here to give lessons on 4th grade level American history.

It came from the Gettysburg Address.

It was a joke and you're exaggerating it.
Like the "they let you out" joke did not imply that you were in prison or an asylum or anything.
It's a joke, dumb ass.
You said it was a joke after the fact and after several (SEVERAL) people had commented over your threatening behaviour.

You may now regret making the statement and you can hide behind your cloak of christian humour all you want, it makes no difference to the facts that you made the statement

<quoted text>Every single time you are taken to task for your irresponsible comments, you always reply with "it was a joke".
First of all, that's your attempt at back pedaling and as always, you fail at it.
Secondly, ever hear the following:
"There's many a true word spoken in jest".
So yeah- HAHA- you had Christine "in your sights".
That's SO funny.......<major eye roll here....>
I never had her in my sights.

A while back, she said "did you miss me?"

I replied with "ya, I need a new scope" or something like that.

If you can't understand that's a joke and that I wasn't literally staring at her with a sniper rifle, you got problems.

Get ready for RR to twist and distort the above scripture you quoted in order to get it to suit his own agenda and the fact that he is a complete reprobate.
Nah.

There's no point.

The context of his posts suggests he's an idiot.

He blames Christians for killing Indians.

WTF?

And they did a good job respecting freedom for all.
Really? The Three-Fifths Compromise was a compromise between Southern and Northern states during the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 in which three-fifths of the enumerated population of slaves would be counted for representation purposes regarding both the distribution of taxes and the apportionment of the members of the United States House of Representatives. Slaves were not allowed to vote. Neither were the Indians:

Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution:

"Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons."

Doesn't seem to me they did a good job respecting freedom for all, especially since slaves were in the majority in the south during this period.
So much for democracy.

The Native Americans were murdered by the government that was elected by Christians. You won't comment because you can't defend the history of this so called Christian nation.

By the way, how would Jesus feel about you calling someone an idiot? WWJD? Didn't he teach the virtues of loving your neighbor and your enemies?

Name calling is the last desperate act of someone who has no intelligent answers, nothing significant to contribute, or cannot defend their position.

So I guess there were no Christians in the army, no Christian who voted for the senators and representatives in the congress that waged war against the Native Americans, and no Christians who were willing to take the land that was stolen from them.

If this is the case, where was the Christian majority during this period?

It only seems christian to you, but America was not founded on or is it bound by Christianity. America was founded under the ideals of equality and freedom. Read this to understand ,all our precious documents show this to be true. We live in a predominately christian society, this much is true, but this does not make America a Christian Nation. In fact America could shift it's religious bias completely, and it would not change the ideals that were written into it's precious documents that define us as people. This was carefully designed to free us from the grasp of a specific Christian Nation, and to expand on the concepts of the Magna Carta.

It's the heart of the American people that makes it a Christian nation, documents to disprove what I say is irrelevant, it's an attitude, a way of life. It's all about doing it God's way, that's why you see everything with the logo of God on it. Look at your money, and many other things that have God on it, it will surprise you how many things have God on it.

I looked at a dollar bill just now and saw an inscription that says "IN GOD WE TRUST" right next to a pyramid topped by the All Seeing Eye of Osiris. Does that mean Osiris is your God?

<quoted text>Maybe just "god". Period.
Again- religion is MAN made, NOT "god" made.
You are assuming it's the Christian god being referred to because you WANT it to be the Christian god being referred to.
Maybe for YOU that is who you ARE referring to and maybe for many others as well.
But don't tell ME that those who practice other religions- such as Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, etc.- are referring to the CHRISTIAN god because they're NOT!
And even atheists will invoke the name of "god" and obviously, they are not referring to ANY god.
It's called using an expression- I'm quite sure that when in the throes of sexual passion, those who call out "oh god!" are not referring to ANY specific god or ANY god in ANY religious sense.
Don't get your tighties into a bunch bouncing around on your stack of milkcrates in front of your 80's model IBM, exhausting your disgust about the fact that in general most people refer to the Christian god when prayer is invoked in the mainstream.

Christian nation? Hardly. You should read my posts to the Redneck.

You don't GET that it's not a given that it is the Christian god being referred to.

MY way of life is NOT a Christian way of life; I am NOT a Christian.

I don't think things in any perceived god's way.....

Yes- lots of things have the word "god" on them- so WHAT???

You're daft if you think that means it is the CHRISTIAN god being referred to.

Again:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

NO religion was ever established in this country yet everyone is FREE to exercise ANY religion of their choice as well as being FREE to practice NO religion at all.

MILLIONS of Americans are NOT Christian; therefore, that invalidates your claim that it is the "American people" who make it a Christian nation.

How disrespectful of you to make such a claim- a claim which does NOT take into account the many MILLIONS of Americans who are not Christian and who don't CLAIM to be Christian.

LOL!!!

No milk crates, no 80's model IBM....

So you're wrong on ALL counts.

You do not speak for "most people".

I realize your arrogance- which is SUCH a common trait among you so-called "humble" Christians- allows you to want to BELIEVE that it is the Christian god being invoked, but you don't know that- and even if you ARE correct, that STILL does not translate into the USA being a Christian nation!

If the USA was a Christian nation, a Jewish nation, a Buddhist nation, etc. that would mean the USA is a THEOCRACY.

Sorry- though not really- I am THRILLED that despite fools like you who think otherwise and who wish for otherwise, the USA never has been, is not and in all likely probability never will be a THEOCRACY.
