this convo ensued after someone belittled my friend for posting a picture of the White House from her vacation and saying it's "Obama's crib" and hoping for 4 more.
her "God rules this world. It is the duty of nations as well as men to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow... and to recognize the sublime truths that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord." - Abraham LincolnThis nation has gone to crap because we have turned our backs in God............ He will and is judging us and believe things will only get worse . Read the ten commandments! HE NEVER INTENDED FOR US TO LIVE LIKE FOOLS LIKE THIS. Those words were spoken by Gods mouth and written in stone!!!!!!!!!!!
her still - If president Obama stands up for the rights of women, why did he not speak out against the democrats voting down a ban on sex selection abortions. What could possibly hurt women more than denying their very existence!? Furthermore, if I hear that moronic argument about loving your neighbor with respect to homosexuality again, I'll puke. Condemning sin has nothing to do with loving or not loving your neighbor. Besides, how much are you loving your neighbor by supporting a man for president whose policies are preventing your neighbor from getting a job? The Bible clearly identifies it as a sin just as it identifies promiscuity, drunkenness, etc as sins. I'm not sure what is more moronic, the misuse of the "love your neighbor" argument or the misuse of article 11 from the treaty of tripoli. You, as most unread people do, are taking article 11 completely out of context. It was meant to allay fears by the Muslims that Christianity would not govern how THAT treaty was interpreted. Make no mistake about it, this country WAS indeed founded upon the Christian principles that guided the founding fathers.
Um, 85% of Americans identify themselves as Christian. So I would submit that the book means more to a lot more people than not. As far as it being a mythical book...I'm not even sure how that's even possible. I assure you the book exists. I have several copies myself. Now, if you were a read person as you claim, I would assume you meant, "book of mythology.". However your sub-par intelligence betrayed you again.
Now with respect to your cherry picking, I would suggest you read a little bit about theology. Rest assurred. I dont suggest this to convert you, but so you don't appear so...well...dumb. There is a very cojent explanation why Christians don't live by the law of the old testament you so poorly referenced.
Obama didn't speak out on the abortion issue because he is similar to the excrement of a certain barn yard fowl. Females are being murdered around the world, and he doesn't have the minerals to stand up for women in a true sense.
her - Hmm! I don't believe I called you any names. Yes! I just re-read my post. After being awed by how badly outmatched you are by my intelligence, I came to the ultimate conclusion that I did not call you any names.
Interesting. The GOP is muddying the water, yet the democrats refuse to stand up against something that hurts women! Do you understand this: women are being murdered for being women! What autonomy does a dead woman have over her own body!? Please tell me how that is muddying the water?
Also, I wrote "of Americans.". If you were well read you would have read that well! Also, you misused the stat you googled. At least 35% of the world identifies themselves as X-ian. Said another way, Christianity is the largest religion in the world. So, let's see. What am I dancing around? I'd be happy to impart more knowledge to you.Oh, and nothing pollutes the picture more than its attachment to Obama.
