I don’t know that Confederate is evil. Confederates were treasonous fools, willing to destroy the country they supposedly loved, for the “state’s right” to permit one group of humans owning another group as property. The Confederate leaders were idiots, not even taxing themselves to pay for their glorious war until two years in. Sherman was far too kind to the seditious fools as he made his way through Georgia.
Read your history. The Southern States seceded because of the Northern States taxing them unfairly, Not over whether they could own slaves of not. The Southern States didn't have the numbers in Congress to keep the Northern States from taxing them and treating them unfairly.

“And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.” Thomas Jefferson
Y’all are pathetic, this nonsense belief in a sky fairy…
I think you should look into the truth of Thomas Jefferson. Start with the Jefferson bible. Before you openly mock something you dont understand. One is better to keep his mouth closed and be assumed unintelligent than to open his mouth and prove it.
Not sure about you, but I do not believe in sky fairy. I trust and follow the creator God of the universe. He is presented in nature and in the bible r
I believe in the holy trinity. Why? Because the father led me to the son. The son has now redeemed me before the father. And the holy spirit lives. How do I know? Because he lives in me!! Praise Jesus our creator!!

“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” – Seneca the Younger (ca. 4 BC – 65 AD)
Why would anyone but the mindless religious need an invisible sky fairy to grant them wishes? If you think this mythological creature made up from mans own superstitions can give you whatever you want or need, you get on your knees and talk to yourselves. That’s fine with me…I don’t give a damn. Just don’t go out and be judgmental of others, being self-righteous in your own minds. That is blasphemy, thinking you have some divine power… thinking you know better than someone else how to run their lives. And if they don’t listen you decide that they, for some reason, will be going to a made up hell. The only hell you reign in is the one you have in your mind.
Why would anyone but the lazy dead beat liberals need a government to provide crap like cell phones and health insurance for them. If you think that government that is made up of talkers can actually provide a good living for you, then get on your knees and beg for yourself. That's fine with me. I don't give a damn. Just don't go and be judgmental of others, demanding we all pay higher taxes just so you can be a lazy mofo. Thinkin you know better than me how to run my own life. Try runnin your own first bruh.
Feel me? Worry about yourself for a change LIBERALS!

Take the rest of the day off. You drunk.
So, when somebody goes out and murders another person, that’s all in my imagination? Gee! I wish somebody had told me that sooner! I was under the impression that people went around doing horrible things that go against life and love, and that those things which violate life and love were given a name called “sin”.
But now that you’ve clearly shown that nobody ever does anything bad, we don’t need that “imaginary cure” to redeem us from all that imaginary bad stuff that nobody ever does! Thank you Wine Dude. Just… THANK YOU!

@ snowblown…two points here:
1. Sin is an imaginary disease created to sell you an imaginary cure.
2. Faith is the purposeful suspension of critical thinking.
Unfortunately, as long as the church has hold over children there will always be religion. If children were not brought to a Church, Temple or Mosque soon after birth for a pagan ceremony, then to Sunday school for fairy tales time and then when old enough initiated into the adult church, Religion would die on the vine. It is the brainwashing by the religions that perpetuate the religions and in the case of Catholicism, Protestantism and the spinoffs of each keeps the money coming in.

Being a liberal is far better than being a hateful fool with their life guided by some phony sky fairy.
if you know the sky fairy is phony why are you guiding your life by it?
Not in a million years would I ever want to be a liberal
Well you sure have that hateful fool thing down pat, every single word you posted was nothing but hateful intolerant BS.
What is this sky fairy of which you speak? No one believes that. Know what you talk about or GTFO
Just because you don’t accept the belief of God nor the Bible as being the truth doesn’t make it any less true….
The Bible says, The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalm 14:1 But this old man would also add, that I believe it is the fool who doesn’t make a truly honest search for the truth, he accepts what others say without question.
If anyone says there is no God than their wisdom would have to encompass everything there is to be known from the past to everything here in the presence…. But in truth, they know what they know but to have knowledge of God when they have no understanding of His WORD nor His ways is nothing less than mere speculations.
Have you ever studied or read through the Bible? My guess is no or you would have read of many truths in the Bible that only scientists have proven hundreds if not thousands of years later as being true…. Here is a website that you should check out, http://www.inplainsite.org/html/scientific_facts_in_the_bible.html I would hope this website would cause everyone who might read this to wonder how could this be that these facts were written 600 to 2500 years or more before the birth of Christ? Here also is a video that might help you in your search for God: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbxD04LWW10
Within the Bible there has been found several thousand prophecies which has already been fulfilled… 330 or so that were written approx. 600 to 1500 years or so before the birth of Jesus all speaking of the His birth, life
I so agree. Thank God, the Creator of the Universe, and Winedude’s soul, that we’re not being guided by some phony sky fairy – and sadly, neither are you. A phony sky fairy is very preferable to the evil that is guiding you – straight to an eternity away from God’s love. I pray someone comes into your life whom you highly respect, who can lead you to the true and Living God’s throne and you accept Him for who He really is – and you will praise rather than mock Him for His grace, as we who have accepted Him do.

EVERYONE needs to recognize that those who proclaim they are ‘Pro-Life’ are quite simply LYING. It is obvious they are lying to us. They are also lying to themselves. They are Pro-Control. They could care less about life.

Heritage, not hate would imply that the overall good outweighed the bad and that there was something honorable and reverence worthy about a short lived, secession formed country, that sought to rip the union apart, over slavery…or as the heritage not hate crowd likes to argue…states rights. Except they leave out the part that the states rights they were willing to rip the union asunder over, was slavery.
I’m sorry, the two are inextricably intertwined. You cannot remove the hate from the heritage. You cannot remove the motivations the flags went to war over and under, and you can’t pretend that when it reemerged, after 150 years, that they weren’t foisted and flow…again…to represent resistance and solidarity against integration, civil rights, interracial marriage and that Jim Crow stand.
You might as well be arguing from the point of view that Ted Bundy was a likable, charismatic, handsome man who was an honor student and well-regarded by his professors. And I would say…so F’ing what? He was a sadistic, sick serial killer. “But the south was more than just slavery.” And right there is your frigging problem. You want to downplay or minimize slavery with regards to your heritage in unequal terms. You relegate it to a “negative aspect…but…” You pretend that fighting for slavery was noble and heroic…it was not. You pretend it was honorable…it was not. Those flags flew to fight for slavery, not against it. They lay dormant for 150 years and were resurrected to ar

Conservatives are highly authoritarian people, but they project their own desires for control and power onto everyone else and thus live in paranoia that they’re supposedly losing freedom. Once you get to the right wing fringes, that projection gets completely out of control, with fears of Democrats bursting in your front door any day now to do….well, we never quite know. Take your guns away so they can do something else. Something. Ban you from being an authoritarian Christian who supports theocracy because of “freedom”, I guess. The haziness of it just makes it scarier.
You need to rename yourself BizzaroDude. Because your beliefs are exactly opposite of reality.

Conservatives, as stereotyped by Teabaggers, are America’s lost souls. A maladjusted generation who will waste themselves away pining for their fantasy white America that is long lost forevermore, unable to understand that they lost not because of how they said things but because of the things they said. When they lose, they can only lose because somebody cheated them. When they win, it was God’s grace or their manifest destiny. The sooner these cyclops die out, the easier the transition of the USA into the 21st century. Get over it, or not. Really makes no big diff to me, we don’t need you anymore.

Dude! Not foisting crap on you at all! If you don't believe, fine, I don't care! Just don't belittle those that do believe. We can all get along in this world if people just accepted other people at face value and don't try to change them or change their minds. That shouldn't be difficult.
@makingot. When is the last time an atheist knocked on your door and attempted to preach to you about atheism?
When Christians stop trying to use their bible to make laws and tell others how to live their own lives we will settle down a little.
Well, then if you want to throw out everything that Christians have "touched", start with almost every law, the constitution, values like love, acceptance forgiveness. Then let's see how far the world would regress if all the charities that serve across our nation and around the world just disappear. Then ISIS and their ilk will move in and you'll be "praying" for the Christians to come back in a hurry! True Christians don't force anything down your throat, but they make things nice when they are around. Feed the poor, clothe the homeless, food banks, philanthropists, etc.. IRS statistics show that almost ALL the charitable giving around the world occurs from Christians. Do YOU give at least 10% of your gross to help others? Oh, and just to give you a heads up, the next item on the list is the Rapture of all Christians so Satan can give it his best shot at being the world leader. So when it happens, you will know you were warned. One last thing, it will truly be sad when you step through the veil and realize God is and meant every word of His book.
Damn! You must be a real thin skinned individual if someone knocks on your door to preach about religion! I suppose you think that is forcing religion on someone. When that happens at my place, I just tell them I'm not interested and close the door. I don't, however, get upset about it and feel like they're forcing me to become a Jehovah's Witness or a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints. Please enlighten me about what laws Christians are using their Bibles to make, I'd really like to hear that one. As far as anyone telling you how to live your life, tell them to "F Off", that's what I do if they're obnoxious! Do that a few times and you won't be bothered again.
If you don’t believe in God and an immortal soul, then for you life is just a sexually transmitted disease with a 100% mortality rate.

“The United States is in no sense founded upon the Christian doctrine.”
“The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe with blood for centuries.”
“Religions are all alike – founded upon fables and mythologies.”
- Thomas Jefferson
“The Christian God is a being of terrific character — cruel, vindictive, capricious, and unjust.”
– Thomas Jefferson
“In no instance have . . . the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people.”
- James Madison
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."
T Jefferson 1781, Query XVIII of his Notes on that State of Virginia.
Unlike Liberals I can attribute the actual quote on the actual Document, your quotes could be from any anti- Christian website or maybe even from Brian Williams...
All of winedude's quotes are correct, though.
You think Thomas Jefferson was a Christian? You think he read The Bible and said, "yep, all that stuff definitely happened."
It's sad that men that have been in the ground for hundreds of years understand scripture better than many do today...
Hooray for you!. Religion is the downfall of every nation. Look south see a hundred nations. a thousand years and not one success in the entire lot. !!!!!
Hooray for you!.
On religious issues there can be little or no compromise. There is no position on which people are so immovable as their religious beliefs. There is no more powerful ally one can claim in a debate than Jesus Christ, or God, or Allah, or whatever one calls this supreme being. But like any powerful weapon, the use of God's name on one's behalf should be used sparingly. The religious factions that are growing throughout our land are not using their religious clout with wisdom. They are trying to force government leaders into following their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups on a particular moral issue, they complain, they threaten you with a loss of money or votes or both.
I'm frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in "A," "B," "C" and "D." Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me?
And I am even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of "conservatism."
