Quote# 60510

How about this...Man needs absolutes to function. Those absolutes are from God. When a person is raised to believe there are no absolutes then they don't know how to accept absolutes. They don't live according to those absolutes so other people don't see those absolutes.

So, what am I saying? I don't think the number of Christians is declining. I think the number of people faced with the fact that Christianity is about absolutes have abandoned their "religion".

2Pe 2:22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, "A DOG RETURNS TO ITS OWN VOMIT," and, "A sow, after washing, {returns} to wallowing in the mire."

Speaking of which...what do the results of the last election say about us?

"A DOG RETURNS TO ITS OWN VOMIT" big deal.
My dog loves to sniff other dogs butts. Could do it all day, your point is....?

I was christian a long time ago and abandoned my religion as well, again, so what? Big deal.

what do the last elections say about us? That we elected man who truly wants to help our country move forward, domestically and abroad. I think it's great and I hope he goes down in history as one of the great presidents of all time.

People who think for themselves don't need absolutes. You'll understand when you grow up.

That we didn't want to have Sarah "Talking Barbie" Palin one heartbeat away from the Presidency?

Antichrist

Give a dog a choice between eating it's own vomit, or eating horseshit, guess which one it will go for.

what do the results of the last election say about us?
That we were sick of the bullshit? Why the hell would a Christian man want a woman in charge anyway?

Did this guy actually just compare Christianity with vomit? I accept that comparison. :)

Man needs absolutes to function

No, man doesn't. What makes you think this? Oh wait, I think I see the answer coming up.

Those absolutes are from God

Yeah, that's what I thought. Plus, you're wrong.

When a person is raised to believe there are no absolutes then they don't know how to accept absolutes. They don't live according to those absolutes so other people don't see those absolutes.

What?

So, what am I saying?

I'm afraid to ask.

Speaking of which...what do the results of the last election say about us?

Hopefully, that we're getting smarter and learning to leave idiot superstitions and fairy tale dribble behind. But I'm sure you have a different answer.

"How about this...Man needs absolutes to function."

Why?


"So, what am I saying? I don't think the number of Christians is declining. I think the number of people faced with the fact that Christianity is about absolutes have abandoned their "religion"."

That would be the number of Christians declining.

"It has happened to them according to the true proverb, "A DOG RETURNS TO ITS OWN VOMIT," and, "A sow, after washing, {returns} to wallowing in the mire.""

Your point?

"Speaking of which...what do the results of the last election say about us?"

Maybe it tells us that finally, American people are starting to THINK a bit? Not deepy enough (if that happened, both Democrats and Republicans would be out of jobs, as they are Not Really That Different, except the Republican pandering to Religious Right) but a bit, enough to shed some of the foolish prejudice.

God

Sometimes, I need to format my hard disk. And when I use the format command, I have to use parameters. One of these parameters is from God. And that's how you manufacture arguments.

"what do the results of the last election say about us?"

That we're sick of self-serving douchebags running this country into the ground while padding their own bank accounts, declaring war on misinformation, and all the while not able to string together a coherent sentence?

That keeping our children fed, clothed, housed and educated is much more important than worrying about the off chance that they *might* get an abortion or want to marry someone of the same sex 20 years from now?

That we'd like to regain some of the respect we lost in the eyes of the rest of the world?

Here's your first mistake. Humans don't need absolutes to function. Fundies, because of their inadequate thinking process, do.

you want to quit dealing with mire and vomit?

Mire and vomit could be nicknames for Bush/Cheney or McCain/Palin
