    Moderate-

    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.

    Square-

    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.

    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!

    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.

    proverbs is such an angry guy! What a loser.

    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?

    They are the exception, of course. Remeber, the crusades were definitely christian but 9/11 has NOTHIING to do with Islam.

    They do have a very very long average lifespan. I guess they are doing something right.

    This makes a lot of sense. I wish this entire train of thought were more frequently expressed. It’s clear and convincing.

    Why would that person be a “bozo?” You really think this bit of theater should become a law? Therein is the true hypocrisy of the Right – smaller government for the stuff we don’t like, bigger goverment for the stuff we do…

    Is anyone up to directly responding to his comment with some facts? Why shouldn’t staples take less profit? Don’t attack me, please…I am curious to hear opinions.

    I only mention our professions to make the point that there are very smart people who stop drinking the coolaid. In fact, the smartest people I know are wise to the strong left indoctrination that we all experience in this society. Margret Thatcher summed it up well, “The facts of life are conservative.”

    Maggie-

    I spent the first half of my life in the northeast (D.C. and Philadelphia), after becoming a doctor my wife (a molecular geneticist) and I moved to the “South.” I hadn’t been exposed to many people who prioritize their christian faith (I’m Jewish), and even fewer people who identify as conservative. That has changes significantly since moving down here. I can say with certainty that what I believed was true, was false. The so called “enlightened” liberals share a kind of moral confusion that is virtually absent among those conservative Christians that you seem to dislike. I still consider my self a classical liberal, and I’m often chided on this site for my lefty views. Nonetheless, the Left has sold you and me a lie. It took a move down here for me to realize that. I hope you at least consider that you don’t know it all, and that you just may be wrong.

    So your theory is that it’s a lie? Wow.

  • February 5, 2015 at 10:04am

    AMEN!! On an iPad, this site is almost unviewable. It greatly undermines the narrative that the Blaze stands apart….

    Statistics are a representation of population data. Not every member of the population conforms to the statistic. In fact, there are just as many people like you as people with a short ring finger who cheat all the time. That doesn’t invalidate the data, it just creates a bell curve.

  • [-1] February 5, 2015 at 9:57am

    It’s just stats! Stats don’t have an agenda…you apparently do.

    As to your second point…you are mostly correct, but the effect isn’t as big as you think. It’s true that people who embrace Judeo-Christian values feel more guilt, but that guilt doesn’t do very much for behavior. Consider things like smoking, or saying mean things to a spouse or a child, or goofing off at work…guilt only goes so far in preventing the reoccurance of bad behavior. Unfortunately, we tend to feel guilt after we mess-up, and forget about it beforehand.

    Regarding research, I can only report what I see. The problem with conducting research like this is that it would be based on self-report data, and people aren’t eager to tell about their biggest mistakes.

    I am with you 100% that relativism is bad news, but I think you may be overlooking the ways that we all employ it in our lives. The “good” man who has an affair because his marriage is dead, or his wife won’t have sex with him is rationalizing his behavior with his own relativistic view of what he is doing, and why. In other words when people do bad things, it isn’t because their moral framework allows badness, it’s because they are temporally stepping outside of their moral framework. In that sense, both the God fearing, and the athiest is the same.
