Also, what is typically leftist about waiting for evidence before believing something? That seems like the essence of conservative thinking.

Because being a Muslim is the only reason that people do bad things? How silly that is.

On what possible grounds could you oppose this? They have a different understanding of faith, but how does that threaten you? The basic values discussed in these churches is straight up Ten Commandments. Isn’t some faith better than no faith?
God is not what someone defines Him as. We already know how God is defined we have a book that tells us so, the Bible
There is ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM. Jesus prayed that they would all be one. I'm pretty sure Jesus doesn't enjoy all the different churches making it up as they go along. There is one TRUTH, and that is the person of Jesus Christ. We don't get to define him the way we think he should be. We have to conform our beliefs to the way he taught us he IS.
Are we talking about the OT god, or the NT god?
They do seem to be somewhat different, don't you think?
The OT god was concerned with what was going on in the bedrooms, and how the food was prepared and the ritual of the blood sacrifices, while taking time out to throw in His 2 cents about how rape and slavery was fine by him, but watch what cloth materials you're wearing,
'Whereas the god of the NT is far more concerned with the old sin/salvation corner that He painted Himself into.
Why didn;t He just to decide to forgive everyone
How immorally atrocious that He decided the only way out of this dilemna was to incarnate Himself, to sacrifice Himself for Himself...what stupidity!
Is the Creator of all things in the Universe not capable of doing it a better way?
Now We have the god of the NT acting like a Mafia Boss when it comes to salvation vs eternal punishment...what nonsense!
Her's a news flash for you folks: Your god is a fraud!
You are kissing the arse of the wrong deity.
looks good on ya

Even if he were to mobilize the elusive evangelicals, the opposition from the left and center-right would crush him like an ant. Many of you rather lose with your principles than compromise to win. That is a very selfish philosophy.
Coming from someone with no principles and the spine of a jelly fish we take that as a compliment.
YOU stand for NOTHING and will bend over for anything and anyone.
(sorry but you did say so)
Without principals, there is no victory, or hope.
At least we HAVE principles and don't compromise our integrity for a vote like Democrats do.
your prescription to choose middle of the road centrists FAILED 2 times in a row- insanity is doing same thing over and over expecting different results.
NO more listening to compromise when it means BEND OVER
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock. —Pratigya Sharma.
Real men do not compromise their principles. Only you noodle dick do that!!!

Oh Lord, grant me the resources to hire a PI to follow jblaze for a few weeks and get pictures of his godliness in action.

You usually say things that are at lease thought provoking. This time, it actually seems like you didn’t read the article. He is clearly talking about the CURRENT dynamic that has been in place since Johnson. How could you miss that? A definite point against your credibility.

Liberalism is not the same as leftism even though those terms are often used interchangeably. KOP is correct in the way he describes “liberalism,” but it’s a straw man. Most of the people in power on the left are leftists, not liberals. Leftism is similar to socialism and fascism, but liberalism is not. Classical liberalism is not so different than mainstream conservativism.

Rejecting all of climate change theory is as silly as accepting all of its tenants. There is something important happening that cannot be explained by natural variation. Maybe it’s not a man made issue, but it exists. You can’t expect to be taken seriously in this discussion if you ignore the historical data (I’m not even talking about predictive models). The climate is warming at a rate that is statistically distinct from other climatic shifts. That’s a fact.

They took the population size into account, fraking moron. There is nothing more moronic than dismissing data just because you don’t want it to be true. I’m not saying that this data is correct, but until you take the time to read and UNDERSTAND the math/statistics, it only underscores your foolishness to take such a strong stand. If it is true, the problem should be fixed because it would represent a moral injustice. Believing otherwise would mean that you are willing to let people suffer at a disproportionate rate because of their race. If it isn’t true, the lie should be exposed. Apply some moral clarity to your thinking instead of grandstanding.
Two words: Eric Holder.
This was a witch hunt from the very beginning.
The truth is the population of Ferguson is 65% black. They commit 95% of the crime. Also the white population are more elderly who will not leave their life long homes while the black population is younger. Hummmmm wonder why more whites are not stopped and jailed. Ferguson also has one of the highest crime rates in the nation.
These basturds proved they were not after the truth within 30 minutes of Brown's death. They started the lying immediately and never let up even today.
Three autopsies, weeks of eyewitness testimony made public and the idiots are still walking around with the phony "Hands Up Don't Shoot" meme.
OK, some bored worker made a joke about Obama, burn the town to the ground and kill all the White people.
I am not going to recite crime stats, but, the best way to avoid problems with the police is not to break the law. Blacks seem to be real slow learners in this respect. BTW, that's not "wacism", that is reality. Who does 52% of all murders in the USA while being at best 13% of the population?
There must be moral imbalance, that's why whites are quite so eager to move into this neighborhood.

I was once a stage-one thinker like you are now. My liberal-education credentials are impeccable, and it took me nearly 30 years to shake off the indoctrination. The left has successfully claimed the narrative that you recited – democrats stand-up for the little guy. I challenge you to name a single democrat policy where the actual result (NOT THE INTENTION!) has helped the “little guy.” Democrats often have great intentions, but their stage-one thinking constantly produces terrible unintended consequences.
February 25, 2015 at 10:04am
Stop dreaming!! The SINGLE reason we are all suffering four more years of “hope and change” is because people like you “voted their conscious” (aka pissed away their vote). Stop spouting rhetoric for two seconds, and actually consider what a Hilary administration would do to this country. The republicans may not be as conservative as they should be, but they are more conservative than another leftist administration would be. Anyone who says that there is no difference is just reciting slogans. Once the leftists are out of the whitehouse, you can worry about party purification.

Why it would house a daycare center?! Many office building have daycare centers….have you ever been to DC (unlikely). You will see playgrounds attached to almost every federal building. If you are going to drink the coolaid, don’t drink the stupid flavor.

Yes…I wonder why he brutally murdered innocent people. If you don’t wonder, you are a moral idiot. Do you think Rand would have condoned that violence? You obviously have not actually read any Rand.
Actually I have always wondered why a federal building (AKA a strategic target in any kind of warfare foriegn or domestic) would house a day care center? Unless of course you wanted props to generate a lot of moral outrage at the same time silencing a lot of obvious questions.
For example: if you had a chemical weapon that you knew was lethal to small adults and children and you also knew that gas masks were not manufactured in sizes to accommodate small adults and children. Would you use that weapon against a structure occupied by mostly small adults and children?
Or say a US Marshall claims to have been attacked first by a boys dog and then shot at by the boy after shooting the dog that was attacking him why is it that both the dog and the boy have only bullet wounds consistent with being shot from behind?
As for Rand and her opines on violence, non-aggression can only be achieved once a particular philosophy has been achieved. Until the then primary driver is the mind and the desire to sustain life. If as in the case of Mcveigh you were to interpret the actions of a single office of a particular federal agency as the source of initial force (evil violence) then it would become inherent to the mind that continued survival would require immediate removal of such a threat.
If we are to believe the testimony of the two men who stood trial it would seem McVeigh did nothing to violate the basic principles of the mind.

So if Obama didn’t come down on these lefty protestors you idiots would be talking about how he is league with them. If he comes down too hard, you idiots accuse him of being a dangerous dictator. Ridiculous!
Yes you are....ah get this simple concept into your sick head...YOU and Obama need to follow the law....work to change what you do not like...until Obama came the USA used to be a free country that did just that.
We are guaranteed due process by the Constitution and its guaranteed for the violent lefties as well as anyone else. If this place really exists its an affront to our rights and needs to be dismantled.

I think the issue non-idiots have is that the bible is very clear about a number of serious sins. There is nothing in the bible that suggests that homosexuality is worse than adultery, thievery, or drunkardness, for example, but I feel certain that the church has more than their share of those folks in high places. It’s the hypocrisy that stands out as despicable, more than the belief.

Evolution can be observed and proven to the same extent as the theory of gravity. There is actually more evidence for the theory of evolution, than for the theory of gravity. That said, it doesn’t bother me one bit that many people disagree with me. I’m not sure why any of you should care what I believe. Either I’m right, and you are wrong or you are right, and I am wrong. We will either find out, or we won’t. Isn’t that all there is to be said?
I've watched items fall to the ground because of gravity. But I have never seen one living thing evolve from one kind to another. What do you mean by "evolution can be observed and proven to the same extent as the theory of gravity?" Gravity isn't a theory because we can repeat it and see it happen right before our eyes.
Hi Ego Lacuna...
I Like you... Your soul is unique and precious... There is no one else like you...
While I know you are smarter than I...there is a battle taking place for that precious soul of yours, and I just want you to be aware of that.... My hope is that you ponder this, then make the right choice...
I won't bring this up with you again, as I value your friendship and don't want to push you away, but if you do have questions, I'm here, and I will do my best with the gifts God has given me, to help you on your walk...
As someone who has worked in microbiology and DNA analysis, I've overseen and observed the growth of billions of generations of some microbes... Never seen one species evolve into a new species when I'm manipulating their nutrients and environment in the agar. For as much bluster folks like Dawkins make... Science also disproves evolution everyday in biotechnology labs across the nation.
