Your comment is **sooo** reflective of what Jesus would say.

Isn't it?

<quoted text> Yeah I can understand and hopefully my interest will wane but I do believe the more Homosexuality is normalized the more Christianity will be demonized and that is not necessarily a bad thing according to Richard Wurmbrand who wrote Tortured For Christ. One of the first books I read from a Christian POV.
Xianity is due a great deal of negative criticism, for all the evil it continues to perpetuate on the world.

And yes-- it's going to get worse-- deservedly so.

You'll know you've lost, the first time your cult loses it's tax exempt status-- and that **will** come.

There are several lawsuits even now, on that very subject-- it's only a matter of time.

Even if that were true, which it isn't, all you are saying is that certain atheists were vicious murderers just like Christians for a few decades out of the last 2000 years.

You are still a mentally ill person who I think is probably a potential homicidal maniac.

You have to accept that homosexuality happens.
You have to accept that people think differently.
You have to accept that their version of happiness is different than yours.
You DO NOT have to accept it as normal.
No more than they have to accept your lifestyle as normal.
Soon.

Soon enough, your cult will lose it's strangle-hold on things.

And then?

Your sort of bigoted behavior will be seen for what it is: a hate cult.

Soon...

Isn't tens of millions of innocents murdered at Christianity's hands enough for you ?
__________
The total body count for the ninety years between 1917 and 2007 is approximately 148 million dead at the hands of fifty-two atheists, three times more than all the human beings killed by war, civil war, and individual crime in the entire twentieth century combined.
The Nazis weren't atheists you retard.

Truman, a Christian, murdered about 40 thousand people in 30 seconds...twice !
By your demented logic, that makes Christians the most evil.

All you prove is that you are a Christian and a liar.

Ever notice, and I'm sure you haven't that there is nothing in the bible that could have been authored by any 1st century person? Pages and pages about animal sacrifices, how to keep slaves,who to kill and why. Here is a book supposedly written by a loving and compassionate deity, the most important book of all, with important messages to all of humanity, yet it contains nothing relevant of useful for the 21st century Nothing about electricity, DNA, the principals of infectious diseases.

I could go into Barnes and Nobel blindfolded and pick any book off the shelf and it would be more relevant and useful, would have more wisdom in relation to 21st century humans than either the bible or the Quran.

<quoted text>You may have been out of the loop, but you got the overview spot-on. Politicians of all stripes have been marching out healthcare reform in every election cycle since at least Nixon. Then, after every election, it was set back on the campaign shelf. Finally a politician was willing to fight for it, although his follow-thru left something to be desired. The original proposal included some kind of universal coverage, marginally subsidized. On it went to committee for "reconciliation". Every single item in dispute today, inc. the individual mandate, were conservative conceptions. The result was the mongrel we have today, which in one sense, is the hallmark of democracy, you might say - mongrel legislation that no one likes. Interestingly enough, no sooner did it leave committee but conservatives fought against it. It was almost like it was staged, yaknow?

Did you ever notice that when people talk about losing jobs overseas because "those people" work for less than fat, lazy American workers, they rarely mention that "those people" very often enjoy universal healthcare?
Thanks for all of that.

I'm just a little amazed at the conservative voters complaining about the holes in the final package that it seems they supported creating. It seems like conservative citizens supported conservative politicians as they did major surgery on the original concept until it served nobody but the insurers, and are now complaining about the final package and blaming Obama.

Staged, huh? As in Obama was complicit and just acting? I don't know how to judge that. However, I don't think you can be too cynical about American government.

In any event, as I indicated earlier, I have a tough time feeling empathy for anybody that didn't support some form of universal coverage, and then goes under for lack of it.

As for listening to Americans complaining about "those people" or any other conservative meme, I seldom do for more than a few seconds. I find it all very much a turn-off and prefer to turn away from it. It was a source of anger and frustration when I was living and working in the States, which was all of my life until five years ago, when my wife and I expatriated, in large part because we didn't want to be immersed in that or even hear it. From this vantage point, it's no longer an emotional issue, and not terribly relevant any more either.

I feel some misgivings about my attitude, but it's an adaptation that helped us restore equanimity to our lives.

You cannot blame conservatives in any way for this trainwreck reform. It was passed without one republican vote in either house, and still required bribing of democrats in conservative states with kickbacks, and then still required breaking the rules to allow it through the Senate under reconciliation, then still required a Supreme Court Chief Justice to lie about it being constitutional, so much so that the swing-vote, Kennedy, openly ridiculed him. Nope. This new unconstitutional, job-killing welfare entitlement is a liberal democrat baby. Hope they choke on it.
This is the infighting that I don't miss. You can't escape it from within, or I couldn't. I believe that you have to extricate yourself from it if you want it to stop.
