The craziest and funniest thing about Ar aR's comment is that he'll say that - and just about all Christians do this - then turn around and claim it takes intricate and intimate knowledge of ancient languages, original word meanings and context, and intense study to understand properly.

They would still be murdering and torturing people at will if they could get away with it. Oh wait! They still do.

Don't get on my nerves, young'un. What Tide said was pretty clear, he agreed with Harris that people should be executed for a belief.
"I agree. It may be ethical to kill people, under certain circumstances, to protect yourself or others, for what those people are almost guaranteed to do, for the beliefs that they hold."
It is in no way ethical to execute a person fur done thing they "are almost guaranteed to do".
That's humanism for ya.
Would you kill a terrorist, if the option was preventing them from blowing themselves up in a crowd including children? Or if it would prevent the next 9-11?

OH, my. Southern Baptists in Kentucky have discovered the perfect way to get rednecks to join their church.
From the Courier-Journal...
"In an effort its spokesman has described as “outreach to rednecks,” the Kentucky Baptist Convention is leading “Second Amendment Celebrations,” where churches around the state give away guns as door prizes to lure in nonbelievers in hopes of converting them to Christ."
Guns for Jesus.
Only in America.

Your idol Sam Harris likes the idea of using torture to extract desired info. Something tells me he wouldn't be as enthusiastic about it if it was used on himself.

People like him seem to think they will be immune to being treated the same way as their opponents are, but that's likely because Mr. Prissypants thinks his cult will be the one in charge of all that torturing. Funny how sometimes things don't always go how we hope they will, isn't it?

...or a terrorist attempting to inflame society into killing believers? See how that works? It might not be karma but it is human nature to be defensive towards aggressive provocateurs. Not many of us would pass on taking down Hitler if we could, the same goes for anybody planning on killing the innocent.
Hypocrite.

You sarcasm not withstanding, being born poor doesn't mean you have to stay poor. Some people strve to be the best they can. Phil Robertson is a prime example of "rags to riches". He had an idea, expanded on it, took out loans to get started, worked his ass off for decades and is now a multimillionaire. He chose not to stay poor.
You offer pity without looking at the whole story.
You want tax money handouts just because someone doesn't have a lot of money in the bank.
You want tax money handouts for the miraculous and difficult task of pregnancy.
You're pathetic.
Oh, a shining examply you got there, RR.
