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.

As governor of California, Saint Ronnie was responsible for the largest tax increase (25%) in state history. The man was a dufus, who managed to surround himself with better than average advisors.

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.

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 and desire to foist on the rest of us…!
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."

Other countries, along with all Americans, should think twice before trusting a U.S. Marine. They are nothing more than mentally unstable criminals that protect one another and don’t care what they do to the rest of society.
Wine: From all my years in uniform the only thought I found troubling was knowing that I was risking my life to protect people like you. Thanks for reminding me on this Memorial Day.
Real men don't drink wine.
Well, you know what they say about Marines.
There is nothing more dangerous that a pissed off 19 year old Marine with a rifle.

 May 22, 2015 at 3:46pm
Screwing your way to 19 kids is a Christian value? Duggars are sanctimonious jerks and I won’t miss them on the airwaves. And I didn’t think experience schadenfreude again until after 2016, when the GOP candidates stumble and bumble their way to another Presidential loss to yet another unqualified Democrat.
 May 22, 2015 at 3:35pm
I can honestly say that I’m not surprised at the Duggar’s situation here. They are sanctimonious clan with no accomplishments beyond screwing their way to 19 kids, one of whom is a known child molester and a couple of girls that were molested by this same family member. I really could care less about these mouth-breathing, sky-fairy believing fools but yeah, it is funny to watch another phony Fundie family crash & burn in public…ah schadenfreude…!
Where is your righteous indignation for welfare families where "baby mamas" "screw" their way to multiple children with multiple "baby daddies" and then expect the taxpayers to foot the bill? What is THEIR "known accomplishments" other than giving birth to children they can't afford to feed?
Nolefan2: This is the problem with America. It is not all or nothing. I despise both child molesters and sluts that intentionally get knocked up time and time again to get paid for being sluts. People like you, that whitewash any wrongdoing because the perp believes what you believe, are a serious problem. The left does it all the time too. It’s wrong when anyone does it. Just because winedude didn’t bring up welfare abusers in his comment (btw, his comment actually IS relevant to the story being commented on, unlike yours) doesn’t mean he approves of such behavior. Just FYI – THIS is why the rest of the country doesn’t take you guys seriously. You cry about the double standard of the left while actively perpetrating your own double standard. Just because he believes what you do and has, or should I say had, a national platform to say it doesnt mean hes a good person. Im actually embaressed that I have to say this but, touching your little sisters (over clothing or not) is not ok, ever, under any circumstances, ever. It is not “boys being boys”, “teenage mistakes”, or a "normal thing for a hormone driven 14 year old". Normal sexual behavior of a hormone driven 14 year old boy is trying to get permission from the 14 year old girl to do what he did to his sleeping little sisters…disgusting, but I think the fact so many here can’t bring themselves to condemn this guy is just as scary.
That's awful. There are young women here who were molested by their brother, and you enjoy it and that they were betrayed this way? You are as sick as Josh Duggar.

Y’all kill me…arguing about whether different interpretations of a sky-fairy are correct. 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.

You waste a lot of words on something that really doesn't matter to you.
I have a kettle to which I would like to introduce you.
Winedude, I hope you were looking in the mirror when you wrote that. What a hypocrite!
The true understanding of God is beyond all religions. And evidently closed minded people such as yourself with an ax to grind. Religion tries to define God, and is arrogant, but that does not mean God does not exist.
I thought it was sky-daddy?
See my answer to Thom Park just above. You say "you get on your knees and talk to yourselves. That’s fine with me…I don’t give a damn. " But clearly you do care, and want others to give up their faith. You may want to follow your own advice and don't "be judgmental of others, being self-righteous in your own minds," since your words describe your comment perfectly.
Your use of the word "blasphemy" is very revealing. By definition, if you believe there is no God, you can't believe in blasphemy. How can one one revile a god that doesn't exist? It sounds like you are rebelling against religion while still believing deep, deep inside!

For starters, sin is an imaginary disease created to sell you an imaginary cure. 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, 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.
“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)
If then, as you suggest, there is no objective morality (sin is an imaginary disease) then everything is simply a matter of opinion. You then have no basis whatsoever to object to anyone else's behavior. So radical Muslims can throw gay people to their deaths off the roofs of buildings. But then you will say, well, as long as that behavior doesn't hurt anyone. But why is that the limit? Why is it wrong to hurt someone? You then are appealing to an objective standard, a standard outside of anyone's opinion, and are therefore contradicting your own argument.

“True, It;s hard to explain their vile hatred for a being they don’t believe exists.” Not necessarily true. I have no contempt or hatred for something I don’t believe in. Rather than that, I have a great deal of contempt for those who try foist their religion upon everyone else. You’re welcome to do whatever you and fellow Sky Fairy believers want to do within the confines of your church, mosque or synagogue. Just don’t try and peddle that nonsense anywhere on public propery. Just as you’re free to practice your religion, I’m equally protected against having to listen to your nonsense in a public setting.
“Religions are all alike – founded upon fables and mythologies.”
