Isn't there a Bible verse which states that Christians must obey secular laws? (I forget exactly what it is, but I know that other commentators, like Anon-e-moose, frequently mention it.)
Nevertheless, it is more or less proven that Christians are not slaves or persecuted in the United States. We can measure this sort of thing, and Christians are not persecuted at all! Claiming that they are in slavery is an offense to the memories of all those who actually were in slavery in this country, and in the wider world.

Slavery, That words doesn't mean what you think it means. Show me a single Xian in the U.S. that is being forced to perform labor without pay for a slave owner? Can't find one? I didn't think so.

You are perfectly free to stop paying taxes. Just refuse to pay the IRS. When you go to the store for groceries patiently explain that you will not pay any sales taxes on your purchases. Of course, they won't sell you anything but don't fret; a nice shiny federal prison with a shiny cot and three squares a day awaits you.
But you know what? Fuck you. I hate it that my taxes go toward multiple invasions of countries that posed no threat to us and that have killed hundreds of thousands of, you know, actual, living human beings. Many of those human beings were children and women who were carrying those precious fetuses that you so pretend to fetishize.
I also hate that I help fund the maintenance of a huge nuclear arsenal in the only country that has ever used those weapons.
But I, unlike your dumb ass, realize that my taxes also go toward things that I use: Roads, transportation, removing and treating sewage, etc.
And toward infrastructure that allows our economy to function so people, even morons like you, have jobs that alalow you to put food on your families.*
Everyone has government spending items with which they disagree. I could see where a hardcore vegan would disagree with agricultural policies that subsidize cheap granins, allowing for our lifestyle of heavy meat consumption and the perpetual consumption of sugary soft drinks.
As Sarah Palin once said: "Man up." And to that I would add: "motherfucker."
* Reference to "W's" brilliant observation that he knows how hard it is for people to put food on their families.

Aww man... I saw that headline, and went to get my roman lions. This just another over-dramatic weep-fest.
I liked my way better,,,

Well you and your brethren can just move to Mexico, a much more Christian nation.

Donkey fucker is lying.... and mumbling vague threats about imaginary armys.

I saw that guy in a documentary called "Soldiers in the Army of God". For anyone that does not know, Army of God is a Christian terrorist group.

...sexual crimes like homosexuality, fornication, etc...
Those aren't crimes in America. You are welcome to leave this country and settle in a land where they are crimes, such as Iran.

I think he caught syphyllis from his 4 legged girlfriend, and it's starting to affect his brain.

How degrading to those who have actually been enslaved, who are still enslaved, around the world.
2/1/2011 7:17:32 AM
So your platform is to turn the US into a Christian version of the Taliban?

Sooooo, because you're not allowed to persecute others you're a slave? WTF??

@ Brendan Rizzo
I Peter 2:13-14 "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him."
Matthew 22:21 "'Caesar's,' they replied. Then he said to them, "So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s."
You can follow this up with a snarky "Beeyotch!" if you think it'll draw more ire.

There is no government funding of abortion. Your argument is destroyed.
And even so, tax dollars paying for abortions is nowhere close to actual slavery. If you don't like tax dollars paying for abortions, you can always move to another country where that is not the case. But actual slaves can not just move elsewhere, since being owned by another person means your freedom is nonexistent.
But the real message I'm getting from this is that what Neal really wants is for Christians to run everything and enslave those who don't share his beliefs.

"It's a terrible truth, but truth nonetheless: Those in Christ in this nation are presently enslaved to the government of the United States of America because we have been forced to not only obey but actually work for laws that are the diametric opposite of God's law defined in 1 Timothy 1: 8-11."
Read Romans instead and shut the fuck up, Horsley.
I do hope you're better versed in government matters than theological ones, though I'm not betting on it.

Doesn't it give you a warm glow to think that every penny you pay in tax goes towards someone's anal delight?
Lucky for you that the retarded Fundie God is not in charge of your law making, otherwise the Christian inmates in America's prisons would be unable to perform their sacred sodomy rituals.
And actually Neal, you are following not a Holy Lord of Creation but a minor muppet God of insanity. The reason for that is because you are insane. But I expect you knew that already.

Rom. 13:1-5; I Peter 2:13-17; Hebrews 13:17; Titus 3:1-2.

What kind of kook--oh, it's Neal again. Better luck next time, eh Horsey?

The Lazy One
Then I guess you won't mind if my pet lion, Alex, decides to nom on you. After all, if you're a Christian slave, then you will have been expecting this.

And what does a "religion of Peace" need with an Army?
2/1/2011 9:01:47 AM
Dude, i don't think you understand what slavery is.
2/1/2011 9:28:12 AM
Know why you're not slaves? Renounce your citizenship and GTFO. Why aren't you leaving? Nobody's stopping you.
(Not Native American, but I see their point.)

Does anyone know where the local slave market is?
I'd love to buy some Christian slaves, make them have abortions, especially the men. Oh yes, and I could have a harem of males for my sexual pleasure - after they had been bathed and scrubbed for a month.
I know. It's a totally ridiculous proposition. But why not humour the whiners for a while and help them live out their perverted fantasies.
Now if they wanted real slavery with possible castration thrown in, Saudi Arabia is probably the place for them to emigrate to. And they cold even be martyrs, having hands and other organs, not to mentions heads, being chopped off there on a regular basis.
As to the Army of God it sounds all at once both treasonous and Muslim - Hizb'ullah sound familiar?
2/1/2011 9:49:05 AM
Why don't these people stop whining and leave? They'd be much happier in an enclave in South America.
