The U$ clearly has the highest homocide rate on the planet. It's also the flashpoint for progressive politics. Japan offers nothing to this discussion. Progressives focus on victims when a more mainstream vision might focus on the solution.
3. The Church did wield authority for centuries. Did they kill everyone that questioned it's teachings?
Yep, but that doesn?t make her one.
Am I? Or am I just telling the truth?
Then I'll pray for you.
For THIS particular person, you're right. But for those of us more responsible, it's better to have it on our person.
And lose institutional memory, become inefficient & toxic & end up losing $$. ??
No, it came about because of a rash of lawsuits in, I believe, the 1980s. Remember when a number of day care center people and others were being sued based on childhood memories of being molested? Come to find out, those things in most cases never happened.
Your first love isn't someone who didn't love you back. It's also not someone you never told you had feelings for. You're not in some relationship nor a breakup because you never dated but you pretend like what you have is the same.
As a binary issue, either you believe or you don't, that is true it doesn't necessarily mean a lower rate of belief. But it perhaps shows a downturn in the degree of belief.
I am not in the USA, the law here is clear about divorce, no kids = no problem - we just split what we have and go.
Nearly every anti-Christian, anti-Christ bias I've read is critical of some inaccurate version of Christianity. Most commonly the errors are ignoring the tenets, including irrelevant or anecdotal information, equivocation on "faith" and "religion" and false equivalencies
Also *found lol. Here is the link:
no more engineers. The one I have is quite enough lol
I've been getting A LOT of push back from the school even though I've already withdrawn my son. They pushed back on me from the time I gave them notice and they're still being jerks to me. It's so bizarre. It's not like their enrollment is sinking that they need to freak out about one child. They're taking it so personal right now.
God have allkind anatural. Complete his .
I believe most people still think there is a God or something out there. They just don't subscribe to the church as much any more.
Imagine what his world must have been like.
They refuse to tolerate other povs and demand acceptance. Acceptance is only attained at an individual level. NO one has the right to make me accept shit! I will do the research and figure it out on my own then decide whether or not its worthy of my acceptance. Though, tolerance is and should be something all of us give and when we do we should expect reciprocation.
When it is regulating it, that is condoning it.
I am more a fan of Jesus? summary of the ten, the TWO commandments, if you will: love God and love your neighbor. Especially the second, since that?s the one that has practical import in this world.
I know the feeling. Hugs. .?? ??
Oh. No doubt. The civil war as an example was a christian vs christian ordeal.
So if you see contradictions, evil, and flat out factual errors in, say the Book of Mormon, or the Gita -- then you can trust your head to tell you that these are wrong, but if you see the same in the Bible -- then its your head that is messed up, not the text?
JBM. I also have appreciated Mark Twain almost all my life,
Yes. But at the time of Jesus they were a subject Kingdom under Herod (thus the weirdness surrounding Jesus' trial--Herod's reign was propped up by Roman soldiers. Jews gave Caesar tribute: not taxes). Once they rebelled, the Romans murdered them en masse, levelled their cities, and destroyed their treasures.
I'm good. Acting really goofy while listening to Happy Furry Monsters.
"Experience is the best teacher," or so we're told.
Why you Laughing?? These and many more are Transitional Species... The Turducken eventually Turned Into Turkeys Ducks and Chickens and the Amphycion Evolved into Bears and Dogs
I'd say once we have fulfilled Gods purpose for our being created, it's hard telling WHAT we can learn and do and accomplish. Those who prefer to do it with out him, have at it.... I see it as a "Cart/Horse" sort of scenario...,
