But even if they were, yes I'd take America NOT killing it's innocent people in the streets vs Hamas or ISIS killing innocent people in the streets.

Silly girl, the whole idea of atheism is there is no one higher than man. It why we call atheism a religion.
In fact, we see the fruit of man being unaccountable to a higher power at all levels of a society.
There is no greater faith than believing that is a good idea...

Im guessing you just make up this sh@!t as you go along.

Two wild accusations.

1. Church on every corner
2. Preachers making profit

You'll have to excuse mot for not taking your word for it.

Are you trying to wage a war on men?

Stop trying to tell us what we can do with our own bodies.

We're travelling all the way around the Florida coast, East then West, and will finish in New Orleans before hacking back to Atlanta. Will have 100s of hours of Radio 4 (TIMC, etc) on accompny us rather than "Praise da Lord" local radio.

The Atlantic coast and center of the peninsula is much more interesting. Lot of history on the coast from the 1500's. The interior has more of the old attractions and points of interest. Be sure to check out Silver Springs and the Bok Tower in Lake Wales. Spook Hill is right near the Tower. North of Orlando you should take one of the old US routes to Tallahassee, then down to the coast and on to Pensacola. That 200 mile stretch from Tallahassee to Pensacola is deadass boring.

The interstates in the South are tree lined tunnels from here to there. Take the old routes to see anything.

There is a place called Perry at the bend of the Panhandle that has a lot of dinosaur digs. There is a historic residential section of Pensacola with architecture that puts NOLA to shame.

The best beaches will be Daytona south to West Palm Beach. You can walk some of them for miles at night in safety. You won't further south. Take A1A down if you have the time.

I just looked up the geography of Great Britain. The longest distance between two points is 601 1/2 miles.

Miami to Pensacola is 750 miles. Add another 130 or so from Key West. You will have a lot of windshield time.

We used to joke about having to drive 400 miles from Miami to get to the United States. That was to the Georgia border.

Florida has a rather unique history.

I don't know about it's medial (sic) benefits, but circumcision has several medical benefits.
-A decreased risk of urinary tract infections.
-A reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases in men.
-Protection against penile cancer.
-Reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners.
-Prevention of balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin).
-Prevention of phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original location).
-Makes it easier to keep the end of the penis clean.
Where is it written in the Bible that "god the creator did not want men to have foreskins"?
You've lost the medial (sic) debate, are you ready to lose the Biblical debate as well?
Correct, you don’t know.

So why do Hebrew and Muslims alike, both followers and worshippers of your god require circumcision to be truly Hebrew or truly Muslim?

Actually Ruck Rick mk II, I have proven the medical debate by quoting medical condition that may require circumcision. Including some of the “befits” you mentioned. Oh I get it, you repeat my claims after the fact and then claim they are yours – wow... that’s a real toughly to comprehend.

I am sure you thought that was some sort of witty and cogent remark.

Kindly clue everyone else in to just how it was.

Florida is quite different from the rest of the South once you get away from the northern border. Amazing mix of peoples and settlements, especially after disease killed off the very fierce inhabitants before the Spanish. That peninsula has always been wild and wooly.

Thanks Dave,

I avoid freeways where possible and was certainly planning to take the A1A wherever possible.
My wife loves fossils and so Perry sound like a good shout.

You claim that "the maths" explain your little guess.

What mathematical calculation fits into "unlimited"?

FYI - another fight for those not following Manchester United ?

When Cardinal Bergoglio was elected pope in 2013, many traditional Catholics were wary. Recently, their pessimism is being justified as "The Francis Effect" makes itself felt across the world and in America, most notably in the Archdiocese of New York.

So-called "traditional" Catholics prefer to attend the Mass as it was celebrated before and during the Second Vatican Council (1962-5), before the liturgy was radically reformed in 1969.

The Tridentine Mass, which was the ordinary form of the Mass from 1570-1969, is said in Latin, often accompanied by Gregorian Chant and incense, and emphasizes the sacrificial aspect of the Mass.

I hope both Pope Francis and the New York Archdiocese will cease their attack on a community of people that mean no harm and who support the Church through thick and thin.
In contrast, the post-1969 Mass simplifies prayers, places more emphasis on the communal and removes language deemed to be an ecumenical barrier to Protestants. Many celebrations also use the vernacular instead of Latin, and have a more simplistic style and are frequently accompanied by modern music.

Although suppressed immediately after the reform, the older rite was legalized by Pope St. John Paul II in limited circumstances in 1988, and then freed up entirely by Pope Benedict XVI in his groundbreaking 2007 document "Summorum Pontificum," in which he also expressed his desire that the solemn celebration of the traditional rite would consequently rub off on the way the new rite is celebrated.

Yet Pope Francis is having none of it. In his Archdiocese in Buenos Aires, the traditional rite was non-existent, and he was described by an Argentinian journalist as "a sworn enemy of the Traditional Mass." Since he ascended to the papacy this has been shown to be true in a global sense.

Apart from his dive away from the traditional liturgical style of Benedict in papal masses, Pope Francis has dismissed Catholics who attend the older rites in Latin as 'ideologizing' and being guilty of 'exploitation.' He also banned the Franciscans of the Immaculate -- a worldwide traditional Catholic order -- from celebrating the old Mass freely. Apparently, the attitude of "Who am I to judge" does not apply here.

No wonder then that some bishops and cardinals are seeing the winds of change at the Vatican and are acting accordingly.

In New York, under the leadership of the once moderately conservative Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the Archdiocese was a place that allowed the traditional mass to be said without hassle after Summorum Pontificum.

However, since Pope Francis arrived, Dolan -- commonly referred to as "America's Pope" -- has shifted to the left, so much so that even the New York Times has noticed. Dolan has become a spokesman for Francis' view of capitalism, has softened on gay rights, been an even stauncher advocate of amnesty for illegal immigrants and incredibly -- criticized ObamaCare because it didn't provide free health care to illegals, putting him to the left of Nancy Pelosi.
