Re: Capitalism That Serves.....Not Deserves

Skeeter....What I am finding on Christian discussion sites....is an amazing acceptance of hypocrisy....but an intolerance of statements from those of us who strongly oppose it...... Yeah, there's some of that anywhere you go, but in keeping with my overall theme I have to mention that I've seen obn...

Re: More Ice?

Conservatives have it easy - any 12-year-old can make up a smart-ass nickname for the opposition, simplify a complex issue into a series of dumbed-down talking points and nasty one-liners, cherry-pick data that supports their view and ignore anything that doesn't, and ridicule anyone who disagrees w...

Thankfully, it sounds like the trapped Warmistas have been rescued.
Interesting new data. I wonder how it will fit into the big picture.

Re: The best argument for atheism

I can't speak for all atheists ( we're not really an organized group and our beliefs vary widely ), but personally I do my best to do the right thing, and when I've failed to do so in the past I have felt like an a#####e until I've gone back and fixed my mistake.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat...

Re: Are Christians in America being persecuted?

SS, what is the charity that you help with? Do you talk to the other Christians there? Why don't you ask whoever said it how they feel persecuted? Challenge them. The organization is Operation Blessing. Yes, I do talk to the staff and other volunteers, but there doesn't tend to be time to have in-d...

Re: Capitalism That Serves.....Not Deserves

You use conservative strawmen of Reagan and Bush and ignore why, and how, the rich get richer and the income gap gets greater under progressive rule, such as now is the case with Obama. You deny what the news reports and even Obama has said about himself and others: the most leftist ie liberal memb...

Re: Capitalism That Serves.....Not Deserves

Ditto skepticalskeeter Sorry, sport, all you did there was prove that you're going to keep reframing anything and everything I say as a conservative assault on you and others like you. Everything that you say has been a conservative assault, but no, it hasn't been on me or anyone like me, it's been...

Re: Are Christians in America being persecuted?

Persecution of Christians is on its way to the USA; all the incipient markers are there. What incipient markers are those? Yep that is true FL, try helping the poor and needy as a Christian and see what comes your way in the States. Hmmm, persecution is real... in the the USA. As I mentioned earlie...

Re: Are Christians in America being persecuted?

You are not here to seek or discuss, it appears you mind is made up to implant as much disinformation as much as possible. You are correct that I'm not here to seek. I think I've been pretty clear about that from the start. I am here to discuss, and I've actually had some discussions - just not wit...

Re: Capitalism That Serves.....Not Deserves

Skept so if I am hearing you correctly, the flowing news clips are bogas and it is okay to target people to silence them? Correct.. Not sure where you live but is must be so isolated I am surprised you have the internet... Do you live in Toronto Canada in the boondocks? Get a life man - the left do...

Re: Are Christians in America being persecuted?

Not sure what you want - the carcass of the dead puppy - a recording of being threatened? Sorry -- no will do... Did define it a few post back... Yeah, I read what you wrote, and then I gave you a definition of "persecution" because you asked me for one . Twice, in fact. Now you're angry because......

Re: Capitalism That Serves.....Not Deserves

It can either be used for good or for bad. Next, here is hypothetical simplistic example of good C-O: If the City desires to tear up your neighborhood to build a Park - you can organize your neighbors to fight this and win in court, peaceful protest, petitions, public perception, all in lawful mann...

Re: Are Christians in America being persecuted?

Again, skeptic you need to define what you mean by persecution. People think of beatings and torture on this subject. When you don't define the terms - people will miss what is being said. It's not my claim, and I don't really know what Fox News means when they say that Christians are persecuted in...

Are Christians in America being persecuted?

The idea that Americans Christians are being persecuted comes up fairly frequently on conservative news outlets like Fox News. I've never taken Fox News seriously so I didn't give it much thought, but then I heard the same idea from several different people at a Christian charity where I volunteer. ...
