Muslims should be banned because the peaceful ones are collecting money, under pain of eternal damnation in Hell, that ends up supporting “charities” that include Jihad. It is as if the KKK was collecting money to buy rope,wood and kerosene to burn crosses as a religious observation. Only the good KKK is collecting the money. It is the bad KKK that burns the crosses and does the actual lynching.

The Church of God has female pastors too but they don’t have the obsession with liberal causes that the Methodist have. The one female pastor who preaches in the Church of God in Memphis that I know is very nearly the exception that proves the rule.

The Methodist are just as bad. I heard that next year they will vote to accept homosexuals, which means openly active and unrepentant homosexuals in the church at all levels Theoretically it is not a sin if it feels good. The theory is that celibacy works a more difficult torture on a homosexual than a bisexual. It is therefore unfair to expect the same control from a homosexual as heterosexual.
That is why I no longer go to the Methodist church. It is fast becoming apostate. Very sad.

Am I just cynical or is it taking a long time to identify the other victims? This means they are Syrian refugees(hard to vet) or their age and family connections are going to be embarrassing . I remember when a shooter went up the East Coast and killed some people in abortion clinics. At least one turned out to be a Catholic and the church had a problem having a Mass for her in a church. They fixed the problem by moving the event to a university venue. I heard that they were waiting for the autopsies. Could they be LGBT? and they can not figure out how to report the sex of the deceased?

Lets hope Obama pardons Hillary so she can be president.
Before blaming online sales too much, I would like to know how many retail stores also have on line sales. If you sell in a building and on line, you don’t just report the money to the fed that was made in the building. It seems like the big loser is the local governments that use the sales tax as a major fraction of their operating expense. The feds tried to fix that by making it easier to collect state income tax. One government saving another but not a lot of help for the taxpayer.

They are either dead, pretending to be peaceful or waiting for orders. Many world wars or major wars were fought with only 10% participation of one side or the other.

Blinknight: The term “New Covenant” is in the King James Bible four times, once in the Old Testament and three times in the Book of Hebrews which is in the New Testament. Think of it as if your landlord tore up the old lease and gave you a better one. The new covenant is your notification that the old one is no longer active.

Mostly, the perpetrators of evil used the government to do the dirty work. From the point of view of the Protestants, the Christians were killed by the apostates who to claimed to be Christians.

They look just like victims and they are a minority who are victims of discrimination. Naturally, Liberals find them worthy of sympathy.

They are very boring without Sharia. It is likely that they would exact the 800 lashes and then execute him. In the old days, people in poor health or of advanced age could not survive 100 lashes. The religious police would certainly wear themselves out if assigned to security at the DNC.

You move laterally to another business after establishing a good reputation for showing up on time, doing your job and being willing to do more when the chance comes by. Not every business is structured so that everyone makes the same wage and it happens to be the managers wage. This situation exists in Utopia and Utopia is a place where everyone is perfect thus there is no difference between people. The government might be able to force this situation but the most likely scenario would be that everyone will work for the government, probably as contractors. There will be a special small group of people who manage contracts with the government and they will all be paid quite well. the ABC Hamburger Company will get the fast food concession, everyone makes the same within ABC but there will be a group of lobbyist working for ABC, DEF Hamburger Company and EFG Hamburger Company who divides up the territory in a smoke filled room masquerading as a system of competitive bids.

Their ace in the hole is the belief that everyone is born a Muslim. Jew, Christians and others are just led astray by their parents and their culture. I think Richard Dawkins would agree to that too. Adam was a Muslim. Jesus was a Muslim. They give up nothing to admit that Jews were in what is now Israel. Since they, the Jews, were actually non observant Muslims, it is Muslim land and always has been.

A non-Biblical way of detecting a false religion is to detect which one is killing children as a transaction with a diety. Even a few atheist can agree on that, though they can’t give proper credit to an objective moral law that has been violated. Being right for the wrong reason is still being right. Numerous groups in the Middle East and in the rest of the world used child sacrifice to assure future well being or to give thanks to a god. Islam sacrifices its children for Jihad and honor killings take care of some more. This proves to me that Islam is false without going into a lot of other good reasons.

Alexander the Great might differ with that opinion. There is not a lot of peace between Muslims in Pakistan and Hindus in India.

You can not vote on real objective Truth. It does not care about the opinion of the majority. A vote only confirms subjective truth as long as Democrats were not running the election. .

I think Atheist do have to answer difficult questions when they insist that their opinions be involved in government forced social engineering. If an atheist is happy living off the grid and up in the mountains with goats, no important answers need to be given. Dawkins and Hitchens have made vast claims like religion poisons everything. This is a justification for further steps in bringing on the Utopian existence. Some people have turned that around to propose everything poisons religion. If there is a universal poison for religion, it has to be the culture in which it exists. Muslims are the most resistant to cultural poisoning because they have and extended law called sharia. They also have a shame based culture that reinforces the beliefs of the Qur’an within the family, community and once they get Sharia, in the Caliphate. The inability to enforce Sharia in Western Cultures degrades Islam. The one force that seems to be going against Christianity is the post modern ideas of relative truth and the idea that one’s religion is personal rather than having a community and family component. Once the government can reduce freedom of religion to freedom of worship. The believer is then locked inside of the walls of his church instead of being in the community.

Dawkins and Hitchens never got that memo. They have consistently insisted that religion is evil and they refuse to take any responsibility for the casualties caused by Atheism.
Which wars have been fought in the name of Atheism - none. Which genocidal campaigns have been fought in the name of Atheism - none. But plenty have been done in the name of Religion and other dogmatic belief systems, like Marxism - but none have been waged in the name of Atheism.

To keep you from being bored. If evil did not exist, good would not exist either. If God did not exist, good would not exist. At this point the Atheist will insist that he knows right from wrong and he does not need God to be good. The problem then becomes being good over the long haul. An objective standard of good endures without reference to a book, a Constitution, a law or the latest politically correct fad. Objective standards of good are based on objective moral laws. Even if you get in a time machine to go back to kill baby Hitler, objective morality won’t change when you arrive at Hitler’s crib. The real Nietzche predicted that the death of God would create mass killings of people in the twentieth century and he was right. The evil and alleged evil done during the Crusades and the Inquisition was about 1% of the deaths 1000 years later. Of course there were a lot more people to kill 1000 years later. Good and Evil can sometimes seem to change places. The writings of Buddha seem to anticipate this when an evil act in the present can later turn out to be a good thing. This fact suggests it is proper to adopt an attitude of moral neutrality in the face of wrongdoing. The problem is that moral neutrality forces you to make a decision by indecision. If you kill baby Hitler in his crib you kill an innocent. The Bible says we were made for good works. If the world was perfect, everything we do would be good and our creation would have little meaning.
