Yes I am sure we all have friends...
So because you had a friend who fought in Iraq this is cause to excuse the use of US tax dollars to pay for Israel to kill women and children in Gaza, to bomb hospitals and schools in Gaza? How very christian of you
Honey I had a friend who was killed defending Kurdish women and children from Sadams hit squads. Guess what, he was atheist.... get over the sanctimonious lying ignorance of your p|ss poor excuse for religion that needs to lie to excuse itself with justification for lying
I also had 2 friends (1 atheist, 1 Muslim) who have been crippled in Afghanistan defending villagers against the Taliban.
My grandfather (confirmed atheist) was killed (shot by US troops) for defending a French (christian, catholic) woman from being raped by those good christian US troops just after the D day landing.
I have a friend who lives India, she too is atheist, she continues to spend her holidays in Afghanistan helping out where she can, as she did during the worst of the fighting.
I have several friends (all atheist) who work for charities working around the world, including countries like Afghanistan and Iraq
Yes I have and had friends too.
Finally I personally have no doubt that I donate more to various charities in cash and time each year than you earn and guess what, I am atheist
You misunderstand me. My friend wasn't fighting in Iraq, he was a Christian NGO. Moreover, I have several Christian NGO friends who worked in Afghanistan helping widows establish businesses, working to develop alternative crops for farmers and setting up schools for girls. And that is just a tiny part of the countries and Christian NGO organizations the Church I pastored was involved in supporting and sending out.

As to donations and service, I'd bank you are wrong.

I would think the licensed meat processing plant for wild or pen raisef game animsls was inspected like any beef, poultry, or fish farm would be. Then the restaurant gets frozen food to chunk on the fire.

I don't think a lot of butchering goes on in most restaurants nowadays that would allow wild animal diseases to contaminate the kitchen. Nor are they scaling and cleaning live fish there, either.

Wouldn't be all that nuch more expensive.

You should pay a visit to France in autumn (fall). You hear the bang, bang if rifles being fired deep in the forests. You always know when the hunters have been successful. The local restaurants and bistros all have “sanglier”(wild boar) as the plat du jour (dish of the day).

An amuse bouche and a 3 course meal with perhaps foie gras etc to start, sanglier as the main and some lovely desert will cost between €12 and €25 ($16 to $33) at a bistro and around €16 up in a Michelin rated restaurant. Sorry but wine will be extra

Here in the UK there is no wild boar to hunt but there are wild boar farms and although expensive compared to the cheaper cuts of steak (rump etc), I can get boar for about the same price as ribeye

Some of the better class butchers sell homemade wild boar or venison sausage

Broken arrow ranch says $50.00 min. order plus a overnight shipping fee for a cooler packed with gel packs (resuable)
So Dave 50.00 will buy maybe enough for a small party, but over 100.00 I'm sure including shipping for the meat alone. Compare that to just regular steaks.
There is one place I see that sells sausage and dressed meats fairly cheap, but we are talking processed bbq'ed meats and sausage / hot dogs vs real wild game.

Who cares, you used (or fell for) the good old christian lie of not finding any atheist in foxholes to make up a statement that shows you are just an ignorant liar.

Here let me quote you lie...
“Where were the atheists? Oh, they were helping Saddam make gas to murder entire Kurdish villages...”

Honey, there was no misunderstanding of you vile lie, you have used similar on previous occasions and being slapped down for it each time. But being the good christian you are it seems you are incapable of learning.

And given what I understand of your posts, including you lies and the big up egotestical (correct spelling) KiMare boosters you pepper liberally about you lies then... I’ll bank that I am not wrong.

Still not my words and I did happen to give you a short list of pastors who are currently being investigated for the fraud they use to fleece christians of their hard earned cash.

Oh I forgot, didn't I once hear that you were such a pastor who was “defrocked” for trying to get into the panties of your good female parishioners

Yes, that’s right, no wonder you attempt to smoke screen such a fraud.

And there is the cornered Queen shifting to cover her idiocy and lies...

I made no inference of foxhole atheists. I noted that they are on the barbaric, selfish side of history over and over. I was specifically referring to the French support of Saddam.

And you STILL can't explain who those Gazan missiles fell on their own heads and their tunnel scheme collapsed days before an attempt to murder women and children on a Jewish Holy day, exactly as the Bible predicted!

Where did I deny atheists use the Church to take advantage of the faithful?

Moreover, you continue your bigoted, hateful slander about the vast majority of Pastors. But truth has never been a hindrance for you has it Queen of the 'rational atheist' oxymorons?

Not fascist? Not a dictatorship? Your pretty pink and fluffy dream of the light hearted and gentle nature of the US is so touching.
You will toe the line, you will proceed as we want, you will form your government in our image, you will not do anything to upset the delicate senilities of the American public - You will allow extradition of your citizens who break US law to the US as US demand but we will never reciprocate for US citizens who break your laws.
The CIA are the most dictatorial organisation on this planet and ask any of the inmates of Guantanamo bay just how fascist the US military can be.
And you forgot the Israeli terrorist killing innocent women and children under the protection of the UN (and killing an 8 year old girl under the protection of cease fire) But I suppose you consider that sort of terrorism to be ok because you help finance it.
Seems you are always OK with terrorism that you help finance. Hypocrite.
Oh my. You regressed to calling America a terrorist state? You got problems, Chrissy. Rational discussion is impossible with someone like you.

Uh, Auralie, supply and demand. Cows are easier to catch. In fact there is a whole industry built around that. However they are getring much more expensive. This is the smallest cattle herd since 1951. BTW, John Deere took a big hit to profits because sales of farm machinery were way down. But the prices for food won't. Malthusian economics.

Free range beef and chicken are more expensive. Game animals will be, too. Called economics.

I just love the intellectual power Topix atheists can bring to bear on a subject. Doesn't interfere with listening to the crickets.

"The attack on a UN-run school in Gaza by the Israeli military was "totally unacceptable and totally indefensible", the US has said."

Josh Earnest is a media douche, he is NOT the US, he's an individual that seems to forget that when the enemy hides weapons in schools, schools get bombed.
