Quote# 7098

Democracy is not biblical... Why do Christians think that God's will is for all nations to be democracy's? Authority flow down hill, from God to governments to father's as the head of the home and even the kids can discipline the family dog. The dog shouldn't tell the kids what to do. The kids shouldn't tell the parent's what to do. And citizens shouldn't tell the government what to do. God set up a monarchy with King David. What verse do Christians use to justify their worship of democracy?

Well if you want us (the UK) to take back control of the US then that's fine by me. I call dibs on vice-president though

If your dog tells your kids what to do...take them to a psychiatrist

My dogs tell me what to do - if it involves taking them out.

\"Democracy is not biblical...\"

I believe man WAS granted free will according to the bibble, so I guess that would go hand in hand with democracy.

Yeah, democracy pretty much told that stinky old bible where to go, huh huh.

My cat tells me what to do. It's been that way ever since humans started using cats to kill mice.

My cat also frowns upon the idea of democracy. Cattatorship is the way the world has always worked.

What makes you think Christians worship democracy? They want a theocracy - which is very far from democracy.

Democracies are founded on the belief that \"all men are created equal\" ... and no self respecting Christian *really* believes that.

He actually came out and said Christians are Bush's bitches, didn't he?

Your Founding Fathers disagree.

Your imaginary god doesn't exist, just like your command of the English language.

Actually, he is correct in his assertion that Democracy is not Biblical. Therefore, the Christians need to STFU about how the government of the US is "God-Ordained", or "Bible-Based"

I agree with your initial premise: democracy is not biblical. All the more reason we should abandon the bible.

Oh, and for the record, the prophet Samuel (who, being a prophet, spoke for your god) discouraged the founding of the monarchy of Israel. It was the people who demanded it. And it was set up with King Saul. David was a usurper who came later.

God did not just go "Here's a king, deal with it." The Jewish people literally chanted at god to give them a king. God was only giving them what they ask. And remember that their first king wasn't the best one.

Nor were most of the kings following David, for that matter.

One more reason not to be Christian, then...

So, Sweden is more godly than the US? We're still a monarchy, after all.

And yet, you pray, which is basically telling God what to do.

Because only democracies provide the freedoms and human right that religions just talk about. Even most Christians know this.

All Theocracies are shithole torture states, every fucking time.

Democracy originated in ancient Greece: way before the Bible existed.

In the same way, your 'God' is unbiblical: Akhenaten pioneered Monotheism with his scrapping the ancient Egyptian pantheon, and replacing such with just one deity: the 'Aten'. Also, other mythological figures whose stories just happened to be exactly like a certain part of the 'Trinity'; Mithras, for one. And before the Bible.

Are the likes of Zeus & Jupiter worshipped today, Griller? You don't vote for gods. But people can vote with their feet.

How do you account for closed churches, otherwise?

And that's why we're not a Christian nation. Thank you and good night. Glad someone admitted it though it was in 2004
