Quote# 33061

Most of you are so naive about how this country was designed. All your freedoms come from Christianity. The whole concept of our Declaration and Constitution are based on Biblical teachings, right down to the republic (not democracy), free markets, freedom of speech, and unalienable rights.
You don’t understand your rights, and you believe you have the right to do whatever you want as long as it feels good at the moment. In the old days, that type of thinking would have gotten you a boat ticket back to the British Empire. Freedom does not mean free to be a total immoral demented hedonistic idiot.

Freedom does however mean not having to listen to misguided nutters like you.

So, lalala, I'm not listening.

Gee, none of this is mentioned in the Declaration, or the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights. Oversight, I guess.

You must have had to look pretty hard to find that in the Bible.

No. Wrong. Wrong. That's called freedom. Wrong. And freedom doesn't mean you get to be an fanatical demented fundie dickhole.

What is it with fundies and imagining that Yahweh, of all individuals, would be responsible for something remotely close to democracy? Go through the 10 commandments, most of them contradict democratic principles (such as freedom of religion). It keeps surprising me how the most fundamentalist believers are often also the most ignorant.

All your freedoms come from Christianity.

Um, what?

Doesn't the Bible teach to respect and obey the King?

This is just silly.

If I remember right, there is absolutely no mention of republics, free markets, freedom of speech, or unalienable rights in the bible. In the OT or NT.

Even the "heaven" cited by this book is a monarchy ruled by a immortal tyrant.

How could our freedoms have come from Christianity when it has so much to take away freedom? You have to follow the Lord Jesus and do exactly as he says. You call sin being enslaved. How is it different from doing whatever a book and beliefs teach you?

Actually, that is exactly what freedom means.

Wonderful. Then you will have no problem finding the free market, freedom of speech and "unalienable" rights within the Bible.

Also, Ben Franklin never got a "boat ticket back to the British Empire" even though by Christian standards he was "immoral" and possibly even "hedonistic." He slept around with women, was a deist (albeit he believed in a more personal deity than the one most deists do) and was friends with the notorious "immoral demented hedonistic idiots" Sir Francis Dashwood and John Wilkes, both of whom were founders of a mock religious organization that involved pagan worship, celebrations of sex and wine and a strong anti-Christian stance. Both men, I will add, were strong proponents of American liberty, and Franklin even involved the French in our own Revolutionary War - and the French would go on a couple decades later to overthrow the church and the king both.

So, in other words: you fail.

What rights do we have according to the Bible?
Right to life: No.
Right to happiness: Only through delusion
Free speech: The concept of blasphemy blows this out of the water.

God's government is a theocracy, not a Republic. I think it's you who doesn't know anything about our government.

The first five commandments of the tenth commandments are in deep contradiction with the human rights, which come from the French Revolution, like 1800 years after Jesus's death, more or less. More research, baby.

If those who were "inmoral" were sent back to the British Empire, why did the British Empire sent them there, to begin with?

1/1/2008 11:22:39 AM



So, the British Empire sends to the colonies guys who are "inmoral" to their standards and, in those colonies, those "inmorals" come back because of that. I will make a film called "The inmoral boomerangs"

"Declaration and Constitution are based on Biblical teachings, right down to the republic (not democracy), free markets, freedom of speech, and unalienable rights. "

Does that include freedom of religion? For example the freedom to practice islam?
