Righteously!
(1) If you had a history of thievory, and lying...
I would judge you unworthy of working for me!
(2) If you were wearing an eminem, or ICP T-shirt...
You'd be unworthy to date my daughter!
We make judgements everyday, for all sorts of things!
The Bible says to forget the sacrifices, God wants
Justice, Judgement, and Mercy (paraphrasing)
That's why people like Sandusky go to Jail!
God setup the Judging system Long ago!
What I cannot do, is judge who's going to hell...
Because I deserve hell, and recieved God's Grace!
Yes, we should judge, thus proving Jesus was wrong.

Twenty million years ago? You believe anything the creationists propaganda prints, don't you?

We can give out condoms, teach about sex, assign reading of books filled with RATED 'X' language, let them come half dressed with tatoos and piercings but....HEAVEN FORBID THAT WE TEACH THE BIBLE...it might cause them harm or make them grow up believing something wrong!! Hmmmmmmm
The bible speaks of incest and many rated X topics and claims they are good. Not what I want in public schools.
The bible says a raped woman who is not a virgin should be executed. Sorry, but that is not how America rolls.
The bible says a raped woman must marry the rapist. Sorry, but that is not how we roll in America.
Keep your barbaric teachings in the church were they belong.

Heaven forbid we teach them Morals, and decency, to be UPstanding, and Better than the left wants us to be!
God Bless you, and yours...
Amen!
Stoning a raped woman because she is not a virgin is not a moral teaching. It is an immoral teaching. We do not want public schools to teach our children immoral lessons.
Can we not agree this is an immoral lesson? If so, then why would you wish it to be taught to children?

My dating methods? I cannot read you mind and you are not articulating your thoughts coherently.
What is 'Discovery'?
Use your words man.

They had a Dem on last night, said something even I agreed with...
Of course Dems sould be compaired to Liberals... unless they are Liberal, then they'd not be Dem!
So you don't have any evidence of your claim as always. I see you cannot even tell us what it is you agreed with the democrat on.

Liberal is not a bad word. I have no doubt Jesus was considered a liberal compared to the conservative religious leaders of the day. That is why they killed him.

Good work!
Nope.. Doesn't bother me at all... I would not use C-14 radiometric dating to date a piece of chrome alloy... Just as I would not use a dozen other methods to date Volcanic outflow... I can take a sedimentary rock and pick a method of dating that will give me a vastly wrong data set if I want to snow the uninformed for a agenda...

No dating method stands alone, you do not date something One way and make a stand on the reliability of the dating.. For an example.. I dig a hole and find what looks like a camp site... I find a fire pit and stone tools, I find pottery and other artifacts and I use radiometric dating on the charcoal, I use uranium isotope dating on the pottery, I use stratigraphic dating on the site as a whole, and I use other assorted methods for other items found... I do not automatically, because I find a Mercury Dime, say the site is from the 1920's when all the other assorted methods point to 15,000 bc...

Funny thing though...
Why do people get angered over the Free Gift of Salvation??
Sounds stupid spelled with two 'oo's
Atheists do not believe in any such gift of salvation by a god. Not angered by that anyway. We are angered by those who hold up a cross and demand the bible be taught in public schools and want creationism taught as science.
It is the hateful things the Christians do that makes us angry, not a symbol.
How can you not know this after being on this thread for so long?

Anyone hear from Buck?
Hope he's not in jail again!
The jails in America are filled with mostly Christian people, so I am sure he is in the company of those like himself.

Christianity is such a poor philosophy, it often does not teach them to act correctly. This is just another reason not to teach it in public schools. It does not teach moral reasoning, it is just full of demands. Often this only confuses the follower and thus he is not good at using his mind for moral reasoning.

Just as you could not figure out the parable of the good Samaritan. You only look at the surface command and could not use moral reasoning to understand the implications deep in the story. This is because you have not been shown how to use moral reasoning. Good philosophy teaches someone how to use moral reasoning. Commandments are not moral reasoning. Moral reasoning allows one to judge if a commandment is moral or not.
You automatically believe all of the bibles commandments were good, so you refuse to use moral reasoning to deduce if they actually are or not. Thus you have no practice of moral reasoning.

The extreme exaggeration of your views shows how warped your perception is.
Do you really think you could ever be sued for uttering how much you like pizza?

Bad analogy. Romney wouldn't have a chihuahua for a running mate - his supporters detest Mexican-Americans.
Besides, McCain's choice turned out to be a dog last time.

That was the Obama Lie!
NOW... Obama CAN repute a Super pac add... and has NOT!
Buy a clue!
Repute what? Nothing in the add was a lie. It may have been a harsh add, but just what is Obama supposed to repute about the add? The add shows how one man affected by Mitt feels. Who is Obama to question how the man feels? It is the mans right to tell people how he feels.

I think the claim of the right wingers that the add claims murder is a lie.

See how political bias works... It makes some people ignore factual data and replace it with fantastic claims... Much like religious fanatics...

His supporters do not detest Mexican-Americans and never have.. He actually has Mexican-Americans as supporters... What most of his Supporters detest is Illegal Mexican Nationals being allowed to pretend to be Mexican-Americans... And many are not so happy with the Idiotic concept of Hyphenated People altogether.. The Idea of defining Groups to pit against each other for political gain is detestable...

And while I thought McCain was the Dog in that race his VP pick was far more qualified for the Presidency that the one elected... When asked by interviewers Obama Supporters 9 out of 10 times stated that it was ridiculous that she stated she could see Russia from her front porch.. That is more a Condemnation of the mental ability of the Obama Supporters than her cognitive abilities... Since she Never said it and was said by Tina Fey pretending to Be Sarah... Not the brightest Bulbs in the Box....

the rightwingers got their guy. Democrats are happy about it, because of the clear difference in priorities. Republicans for the rich and upper middle class, Democrats for the poor and middle and lower middle class. However, the religion and social issues factors make many lower and middle middle class people, and even some of the poor, vote against their economic interests.
I wonder what degree of conservatism is hiding in Ryan's Catholicism, compared to Santorum's. I have seen nothing about that. Is he with Pope ratty, with wimpy centrists, or saying nothing on matters where Catholics disagree. Liberal Catholics and economically savvy Catholics should still stay with the Democrats. I do not think Ryan will be popular among women. As a woman, who has still some visual tastes for gorgeous guys, especially on TV fictional shows and in movies,(we will not discuss extraneous matters), I react to Ryan on TV as to a sharpie, not to be trusted. A hardedged uncaring looking type of guy, compared to the caring softer but more macho look of say, the hit man on general hospital, who is the type who asks women how they feel, and who has deep but mixed and hidden feelings himself. Ryan looks like he is not a caring person, and I do not think he is, from his policy proposals.

I predict he will widen the gender gap even more. They are talking about his liking to go bow hunting. I am in favor of arming deer with multiple round ammo.

candidly, as far as I am concerned as a feminist and as a democrat, it is ok if you rightwingers like the tanda of bachmann and palin. they do seem to exercise regularly and set a good example of not getting overweight. Nikki is horrible, but a beauty. minority background, a bit, is apparently ok in her case.
