The author writes with such authority

'The world is such a wonderful place because we have had over 3 billion years of the most primitive life forms taking energy from the sun and changing the atmosphere into a stable, oxygen rich one with very effective feedback mechanisms that keep the system stable.'

And the next chapter of the fairy tale is? To think that people are so dumbed down to accept such ardent statements as fact without questions shows how much we have devolved in our thinking. Only those totally blinded by evolution dogma fail to see the Great Designer of this planet.

The reason so many are miserable and addidcted to anti depressants is simply because the god deniers have had their dogmas implemented into society. It has led to depression, family breakdown, child abuse and drug addiction.

Someone who describes the past so inaccurately as the author has little chance of offering answers for the future.

What I've said is that we need to respect humans more than we do animals. Whenever we start elevating animals up to, to above that of humans, we've crossed a moral line. For example, if there's a sexual predator out there who has impregnated a young girl, say a 13 year old girl, and it happens in America more times than you and I like to think, that sexual predator can pick that girl off the playground at the middle school and haul her across the state line and force her to get an abortion to eradicate the evidence of his crime, and bring her back and drop her off at the swing set, and that's not against the law in the United States of America. I have told Wayne Pacelle and the people who believe we should focus all of our efforts on the, on anything they can bring that limits activity around animals, that we need to respect and revere human life first, animal life second.

Bring back tea parties, please. Girls getting together to celebrate the girl bond with over-the-top partying and pampering seems so much forced fun and desperate escape. I recently met a middle-aged woman who was going on a cruise with dozen or so other women her age. Mind you, they didn’t represent an organization that was gathering around a cause. I could understand that. They were just having a girl vacation and leaving their families behind. It sounded dreadful. Women aren’t meant to travel in packs.

[later comment]

Yes, it is important for women to socialize with each other and it is good for them to get away from their families if they do it in the right spirit. I wasn’t referring to things like lunches out or baby showers. I’m talking about hedonistic girl gatherings.

My mother never expressed a desire to vacation without her husband or her children. I’m sure she wouldn’t have chosen a trip with twelve friends when we were young. A few friends maybe.

Almost all the Christian commandments are harmful in one way or another to the Mind, the Reason, the Progress and the Self-steem of men but two of them are specially evil in modern times:

1-"You shall love your neighbor as yourself"
2-"You shall not kill"

The first one gives place to consider altruism or un-selfishness as one of the alleged highest virtues of our society, and is often stretched to the even more insane "You shall love your neighbor more than yourself" as the pinnacle of virtue

But who is "your neighbor"? The commandment doesn't mention anything about your relation with him: Is he your friend? your relative? someone you admire? someone unknown? someone known but despised by you? your enemy?
Does your neighbor deserve to be loved by you? Is he wise? idiot? honest, thief, criminal? brave or coward? helpful or useless? hard-worker or lazy? nice or indifferent?
The commandment doesn't specify anything, so we should assume that we should love everyone, anyone.

This commandment is deeply affecting the politics and economics of the World because no one dares to defend Capitalism on moral grounds, simply because it goes against this commandment which is taken as some kind of axiomatic truth, some revealed supreme virtue that everyone seems to agree with...
Why? Simply because it resonates deeply in our brain, in our soul where we have genetically hardwired thanks to our evolution as species other virtues like kindness or compassion or sympathy which are (were at least) essential for our survival as group and individuals because these virtues allow us to live in tribes and societies which in turn has the potential to greatly improve our chances of survival and our standard of life

In fact, driver profiling is worse than racial profiling, because the latter only implies that the police are more watchful, not that they criminalize race itself. Despite the propaganda, what's being criminalized in the case of drunk driving is not the probability that a person driving will get into an accident but the fact of the blood-alcohol content itself. A drunk driver is humiliated and destroyed even when he hasn't done any harm.

[Illinois Family Institute encouraging parents to pull their children out of classes headed by gay or liberal teachers]

1-Parents can go to their middle school and/or high school websites and find out which teachers sponsor gay and straight alliances and liberal political activist groups (e.g. AWARE).

2- Parents can also ask what texts will be taught or used (e.g. The Chocolate War, Fat Kid Rules the World, Angels in America, The Laramie Project, or The People’s History of the United States) by a particular teacher. Parents should ask for the reading list for the entire year. Teachers who have a reasonable degree of respect for the values and beliefs of all parents will not have highly controversial texts on either required or recommended reading lists.

3- If parents have children who have already gone through the school or have already completed a year or more, they should ask those children and/or their friends or friends’ parents which teachers are known for bringing their politics into the classroom or who displays a “Safe Space” sticker, the inverted pink triangle, the rainbow flag, or the lower case Greek letter “lambda” on their desk, classroom door, or wall. Students usually know who the liberal, activist teachers are. Liberal teachers develop reputations, often as the “cool” teachers.

Let's face it - the three words "Rape and Incest" has already cost 55 million innocent babies their lives and as horrible and violent as rape is, we don't punish the children of criminals in America!

What is almost never mentioned by those who yell loudest, along with most of humanity, is the fact that none of us would exist if we considered rape.

For thousands of years, conquering armies have actually done what teachers said - they have raped and pillaged. If we could go back in our own family history far enough, I'm pretty confident that all of us would have some of that rapist blood within us, and without which, we would not be here.

It only took one. And while looking around back there we would almost certainly find the blood of a few other things we detest, like the slaveholder.

So yes Governor Romney, do exactly what they claim and End Legalized Abortion - NO EXCEPTIONS and do it on Inauguration Day. We'll all be watching with tears in our eyes.

Lastly, for these libs to say "Jesus specifically told us to feed the poor"....LOL LOL LOL
When he was talking to Peter regarding "feed my sheep" he was referring to a spiritual feeding through the Blessed Word of God. I'm so sick of the ignorants taking God's word out of context. Sure, we're supposed to "feed the poor if they're hungry"....how many of you have offered to buy a homeless person a meal lately and all they do is look at you funny since what they really want is your cash for other things?

Quote# 88946

PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio giant Rush Limbaugh says the ongoing national dispute over Chick-fil-A’s stance for biblically based marriage is nothing short of an attack on Christianity as a whole.

“Now Christianity has to be banned, and that’s where this is all headed,” Limbaugh said this afternoon on his top-rated program. “All this stuff at Chick-fil-A, the target is Christianity, not Chick-fil-A. The target is freedom of religion. [With] Obama and Obamacare, the target is always freedom. When we’re talking about liberals, the target is always freedom.”

Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, has come under heavy fire from homosexual activists since he said he supported the biblical definition that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Limbaugh came to his defense today, saying, “Dan Cathy, the head honcho of Chick-fil-A, he’s not making a political statement when he talks about the values the company believes in. It gets interpreted that way because the left has politicized gay marriage and so forth. And so they recognize it and think it’s a threat.”

“I just cherish freedom. I cherish liberty. It’s under assault,” Limbaugh continued, explaining that freedom “has to give as the government gets bigger. That’s not even arguable. What reason is there for government to get bigger if not to police things, including thought? Fix things, police things, administer things, regulate things, all of that is – you might not want to call it an assault – but it’s all aimed at freedom, pure and simple. And any activity that rewards freedom, any activity that freedom plays a profound role in, particularly something that is successful or good, is an enemy.”

The homosexual lobby wants to outlaw Christianity. This is the real meaning behind the uproar over Chick-fil-A. The chicken sandwich franchise has become a lightning rod for the culture war. Liberals despise it; conservatives back it. Supporters of gay marriage want to prevent the Atlanta-based chain from expanding, demanding new restaurant permits be denied. The left’s goal is to reduce Christians to permanent second-class citizens. Now they are coming for our freedom of speech. This is Christophobia — the dominant bigotry of our time. Christians unite, before it’s too late.

I have a couple of questions for the atheists, agnostics, evolutionists and secular humanists: Since there are more “religious” people than you and you want to eliminate us, why can’t we just eliminate you first? Isn’t that what Hitler did to some 10 million people he felt did not contribute to the plan he deemed best for society? (Let the record show, I am not advocating, merely asking.) Is what Hitler, Mao, Stalin did “wrong?” Why?

[re: the prohibition on mixed fibers]

These warnings were based on the God Yahweh's working knowledge of the germ theory of disease and the modern human body. Evidently mixing certain fibers together to make clothing caused the human body to contract certain skin diseases if worn. These warnings of Yahweh's still stand today if these same fibers are being mixed to create our clothing.

Another obvious outcome will be a trip to Ones local Walk-in Abortion Mill due to sexual hedonism gone further wrong.

Executions only take a lot of time and resources today, because there are so few of them today.

In the old days, executions were carried out fairly quickly, cheaply, and took very little resources.

After we execute the first 10 or 20 thousand women and doctors, the executions will go quite smoothly and quickly.

I dont know if the number of abortions will decrease(except in the cases of repeat offendors- there wont be any), that is speculation, but if fewer women have abortions because of the death penalty, if more women choose to use birth control, then all the better.

The war on drugs takes a lot of time and resources because we dont execute offendors. You cant compare apples and oranges. Not the same thing.

Quote# 88891

Atheism is a faith, undeterred by any evidence no matter how obvious, that you are smarter than men much smarter than you.

You being to act as if you are the one fully evolved human person on the Planet of Apes.

And this pride, like the first drink of hard liquor or the first sniff of cocaine, becomes habit forming. It is pleasant only at first. Then it takes over your thinking, and becomes a constant companion and a constant burden, and an endless, dragging weariness. Human souls are not actually built for pride, any more than our bodies are build for alcohol or cocaine.

I wish there were a way to convince my atheist friends to be Christian for only a day, or an hour, so that they would see what a relief it was to lay down the towering iron burden of arrogance.

Dr. Nicolosi, a noted psychologist who works with homosexuals said he has never met a homosexual man who has had a good relationship with his father. Homosexual men are simply looking for the love (in the good non-sexual meaning of the word) that they never obtained growing up. The same with lesbians in regards to their moms.

Quote# 88887

Homosexuality is a sign of sexual immaturity, as is having sexual activity outside of marriage, and therefore though there is not test for homosexuality, the Church is now weeding out immature men of both persuasions. A lot of homosexuals in the 1960's and 70's wanted to avoid the destructive gay culture and thought that maybe becoming a priest would change that, so they became priests for the wrong reason. And so when the temptations came, they took advantage of easy access to teenage boys and society's blind eye.

[Concerning a political cartoon that depicts Chick-Fil-A with separate water fountains for gay and straight people.]

You know, if you think about it, that cartoon does make sense for public hygiene reasons. AIDs is transmitted by body fluids. The homos are mentally ill, and mentally ill people do bad things. An AIDs homo wouldn't think twice about licking or spitting on the nozzle of that drinking fountain.
When good people are out on the street acknowledging their faith, homos spit on them. If one of those homos has AIDS, that spit becomes a deadly weapon.
The worst mistake America has ever made was to release them from the mental institutions. Behavior like this is what kept them there. The American people and their children were much safer because of it.

Giving them different drinking fountains and bathrooms is not a "racial" issue. It's a public safety issue. The segregated fountains would stop the dangerous spreading of their spit, and the private bathrooms would keep their orgies, nasty body excretions, AIDs filled used condoms, and boy rapes apart from the bathrooms used by the normal segments of society.

There's so much stuff to do with going green and the enviornment. Who knows it may be a way for the AntiChrist to push his agenda on Christians in the tribulation period. You can't have a Bible unless it's a green Bible! All others are banned! s shoulders: Who knows though I'm just speculating.

Honestly, with the green propaganda. I remember in 7th grade, I think we watched that Al Gore movie. I think she even mentioned how running bath water takes up alot or something. I thought global warming was absoute fact. Just recently, maybe a year ago or a little bit longer I found out there's people who don't believe in global warming. Talk about propaganda in the school system and society! That is just perfect for the AntiChrist and his green agenda. Get young people who don't know there's another side to the argument.

Remember I was in 7th grade 2005-2006 so I thought it was fact for a long time. And, the reason I found out was by a Christian show. Now it'll be even harder to know the truth when such stuff will be out lawed. Wow, when you're taught we evolved from monkies and taught to pretty much worship the earth...the AntiChrist has a great headstart especially with the youth.

Let me give you an example. I remember when I was in high school one day. I was in the bathroom. I overheard someone talking. I remember hearing a girl state about her disbelief in God and belief in evolution.

As for inbreeding, where's your proof that he didn't choose the best and most diverse examples of each species? That could've happened, and that would solve your problem.

As for saltwater and freshwater, God could've just split the waters and made them not mix, like when Moses split the red sea.

Quote# 88874

The pseudo-morality of the Left is a direct response to the moral challenge created by Christianity. The Christian message of redemption and inner peace is enormously powerful when it can be expressed clearly. The purpose of pseudo-morality is to create noise to cover up that powerful message:

“They talk about love but they hate gay people! We are so tolerant that we can’t even see a difference between random acts of sodomy and marital intimacy.”

“They talk about freedom but they want to enslave women! We want women to be free to choose no matter the cost to innocents.”

“They talk about joy but they want you to show self control! We want you to do whatever makes you happy, even if it involves your neighbor’s wife.

“They talk about personal responsibility but they are destroying the planet! We want to save the planet by making everyone live like cavemen.”

“They talk about wisdom but they don’t believe in science! We couch everything we say in scientific terms. We’re so smart!”

The Left mimics and distorts Christian morality in order to defeat Christianity. They substitute tolerance for love, self-indulgence for freedom, temporary pleasure for joy, government control for personal responsibility, and sophistry for wisdom.

It is sad how effective this strategy has been.
