Ignorance forms empty words, and meaningless phrases. Any historian of the West would know the accuracy, but for the leftists of America, so blithely willing to ignore the excesses of the French Revolution, that first introduction to Progressives Gone Wild, so loved by Stalin and the progressives that followed his paths.

You cannot discount everything Pat Robertson says. His research team has always been top of the line. Two names come to mind: Danton and Robespierre…the architects of the Leftist West’s Reign of Terror. Everything Islam does was espoused and defended by the godless French revolution, devised and directed by atheists who sought to re-invent God. This is history. Stalin fashioned his entire regime after the French revolution, naming two of his ships the Marat,and the Danton, blood-thirsty heroes of his.
This is not a strawman argument. It’s argumentum ad absurdum. There is no established right or wrong…common sense speaks through the “friendly atheist.” Which is established….how again? Common sense looks very different to, say, a Stalin…a Robespierre…or a Caliph of ISIS…
No, it's not a strawman argument, you got that right at least and given this along with your previous post... Getting anything right is something of a rarity for you.
Society decides what it right and wrong, which is why society decided at one point that various things within the Bible were right, when we now clearly know that they are wrong, and generally speaking the Christians had to change to go along with this new found understanding while finding some stupid excuse about how the old laws don't apply for some reason they came up with after practicing them for a thousand years after Jesus supposedly lived.

Says the friendly atheist, “I don’t know a single atheist or agnostic who thinks that terrorizing, raping, torturing, mutilating, and killing people is remotely OK,…” A little relative, don’t you think? It’s fine if the people are unborn…Would have been fine if someone had done it to the “friendly atheist” before he was born…just not today. And that’s the point. When nature alone decides what’s right and wrong, and every decision you make is the result of an accidental chemical reaction in your brain, over which you have no control…you can argue morality all you want to.
Atheists are not required to understand, care about, or support any position on abortion.
Atheists lack belief in gods, that's it.
Just because you are incapable of understanding morality without a god, doesn't mean that the rest of us share your failing.
"You cannot establish it without a Lawgiver."
We do; it's called a legislature.

Hey…It’s spring…and they’re Arabs…Is this not another Arab Spring?
 March 25, 2015 at 4:54pm
As they might say in South Africa…”That’s a bit of ‘o-strich.’”
Hey...It's spring...and they're Arabs...Is this not another Arab Spring?

So the captain wants to be the chaplain as well? Or wants to dictate what is and is not acceptable spiritual advice? Wouldn’t that require a smattering of…oh…I don’t know…qualifications?

“Why is your sister a ghost, Lee?” Who shed her innocent blood? Who decided that her life did not matter, and that the dung heap was her lot? Who played god because she “might not be happy” and she “might fight” and she might not sit in selfish mommy’s lap as often as she’d like? I’m pro-choice…Let the one whose blood is shed decide to shred himself to mincemeat…

Wahahahahahaha….No one was paid to attend. But the libs think that a convocation in a Christian school is the same as a mandatory propaganda rally or paid photo op. In psychology this is called projection. They cannot understand that freedom is real…and has its responsibilities. To stand and cheer is not one of them. That is a privilege.
Remember Browns great quarterback Frank Ryan used to teach mathematics courses at Case Western Reserve University- while he played. And he published "Characterization of the Set of Asymptotic Values of a Function Holomorphic in the Unit Disc" the year after winning the NFL Championship.
But, as Dick Butkus used to ask, "Still think linemen are dumb?"

Here’s a newsflash: Sin has no worldview, only targets. And sin has not changed its character through the Millenia since the fall. The manifestations and the consequences are the same…as are the symptoms: Pride, fullness of bread, abundance of idleness and wholesale neglect of the poor and the needy.
When a “pastor” says it’s idolatry… ““When people say [the Bible] is synonymous with God and the truth,” Harris said. “We can’t be guided and dictated by a first-century worldview:” It only highlights this poor deluded man’s misunderstanding of Judeochriistian faith, which begins and ends with “Abraham believed God.” The basis of Christian faith is not what you make out of the Bible, but what the Bible makes out of you.

Brilliant, George…that is the point so many miss. If I do well with what I hae, I will get more…and I’m made even more accountable.

Where does that leave me? With one hundred dollars in my pocket, in New Hampshire. That’s where I was before you told me Franklin had a jet…and actually…the one hundred dollars, like Franklin’s jet…belong to Someone Else. How I steward this gift is up to me, and He will know and take it all into account.
The life of a steward is not an easy one, full of choices.

I am so sorry…so sorry. The downfall of the word of faith is not the “heresy” of the prosperity message…God prospers those who believe. It is not that they don’t believe the Word…but they choose which word to believe and which to ignore…Faith to move a mountain can move a mountain. It is not saving faith. Paul made that clear. Send the money to Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s purse, and watch it fly. Creflo can walk.
I think Franklin uses a jet too...... where does that leave you....
Whether God wants you poor or rich it does not matter, the rain falls on the good and the evil. He puts you in a particular place for a reason.

So sad. Those who argue this is not choice ignore all the latest research, and choose death. We’re given the choice. And with the choice we make, we change our brain.

Sigh…Don’t…please don’t ever put Michelle and Marie in the same sentence ever again. First of all…the mistranslated quote was never an invitation to eat sweets. It was an invitation to eat dinner rolls…actually breackfast buns, if they were out of bread. (“Qu’ils mangent de la brioche…” Let them eat brioche.) Like every middle class house has ever said, “The kids are out of bread for sandwiches…” Mom, “Let them eat hamburger buns.” Huge difference.
Second…Marie Antoinette never said any such thing, and it’s a demonstrable lie about a women who went out to feed the hungry from the first days of her arrival in France. She never told them what to eat….she gave them something to eat from her own kitchen.
Finally…OK…You’re right…The millions Michelle lavishes on herself is comparable to what the Queen spent on herself, but Michelle pretends to be doing good…and she’s only married to a community organizer. Marie Antoinette was married to the King…and they only had a few years with a healthy head on their shoulders to look forward to.

Faith says “I believe God, who holds all things together by the Word of His Power.” Unbelief is anything less…and thanks to American Baptists, even unbelievers can see that there are those who do not want to take God at His Word, and still fantasize that what they’ve dreamed up can be called “faith.” There is a true community of faith…and a community of “faith”…where anything goes, and there are no rules but the ones I make…
Unfortunately true. People need to stop making God in their own image. God Bless you.

Huff…it changes nothing but the track you’re on. When I acknowledge your existence, it puts me on the right track and opens me up to enlightening conversation with someone who is real and intelligent. And I do choose to communicate with intelligent folks. It helps me know myself and the one with whom I converse.
And that’s the point. The conversation I’ve been having for the last thirty years has been most helpful. The increasing number of folks who have not enjoyed this conversation, freely offered to all, might serve to explain the straits in which we find ourselves…but only those who have engaged in seeking to know Him will even acknowledge this is a possibility that is not without remedy.

I appreciate your response, and your willingness to engage, Truth Is…this is not at the ratification stage. This is during the negotiation phase. My comment stands. They are negotiating…where they have no call, clearance or right. They must address all comments to the president, and tell him, as they have, that they will not ratify. That is all they can do. To enter into contact with the Iranians is a clear breach of duty.

Throwing hot dogs at a man named Mahmoud? And they weren’t expelled? Gotta love the open window we get from time to time facing how we have fallen.
