Kelly. I guess most Christisns and Jews never read about David and Jonathan, whose kisses were rather highly regarded by the once and future murderous King David and another one beloved of god.
There were many who refused to testify and served time with the Clintons. Either they were awaiting a payoff in the end, or avoiding some tragic accident.
There are about 13.5 million people crapping on our country by violated immigration laws. But let's associate them with 10K from central America... who have been here for 40 years. Let's say 3/4th of the 10K are illegal. That's 7,500 out of 13.5 million. Let's take another misdemeanor like first time illegal entry: Public obscenity. How many arrests for that? Are they crapping on the country or just trying to make money pedaling porn? There were 1,500,000 arrests for DUI--also a misdemeanor. Illegal immigration is one problem. Gang violence is another. But let's tie them together and make them the root of all evil... because it gets votes. And let's figure they will ALL become MS-13.
It's true many vets have said they would have lain down their weapons had they known what would become of the West. After all, ever since the war, mass immigration, diversity and Marxism have spread West with the EU now ruled by a 'former' Stasi.
Freemasons are quite different than thinkers period.
I hadn't heard of rule utilitarianism vs. Act utilitarianism. What you say makes sense.
Interesting that you use the term ignoramus. Did you know that is Latin equivalent for agnostic?
You realize that's not a good argument right? That you've just equated god with an idea.... and dismiss the claims that it has some effect on reality. Because if it had an effect on reality... like gravity... we'd have some observation we can posit must certainly come from god. But we don't. Heck... you can't even prove its YOUR god that you assert created the earth and not someone else's god. So lets try:
If you find a watch in a field, you can be sure it was designed and built.
Waking animals when they're curled upside-down on the bed or couch, dead asleep, by lightly petting them, and watching their sleep-happy response. Or they claw you, either one!
PEBKAC is BOFH excuse #351
Fortunately, being born gay or straight is not a sin.
Mhmmm. Do you care about others?
Your question is not a "straightforward and perfectly legitimate question" it is a devious ruse, and as I pointed out a conflation of two worldviews.
I wasnt disputing the evils of religion under the control of power hungry men. Im also not interested in listing the evil deeds of godless men.
Ditto on that.
