Where are we headed?

April 21, 2013

As I look around at our ever-increasing insanity, I ask the Good Lord to come back now! We live in a culture of deviate self-centeredness. We kill our unborn children if they are inconvenient....

As long as sex is between a married male and female in the confines of their bedroom done in the missionary position for no other purpose than pro-creation, all is right with the world.

That is a huge double shot drink.

While I've known you to be pragmatic individual, Gavin, I now see fit to view you as a fellow progressive.. see ya at the meetings.

Sorry BuffTrev1, not a progressive. Libertarian which makes my social views fall along progressive lines, but that is where it ends.

Was there a full moon that all the crazies wrote at once?

Actually Carl this is the world that conservative Bible thumping people have created.

Gavin, sometimes you crack me up! This letter writer is so whacked it's pathetic. Her idea is that if everyone and every entity all become good Christians that all would be right with the world. Yeah. Tell that to the commoners who lived in the middle ages. Christianity ruled the European world and they had it soooo good. Bad is bad. Religion has no bearing on who or what is bad. All religions have their skeletons and to think yours is any cleaner than another is blindness.

Christian values created this nation, where freedoms reign supreme, even the freedom to practice other religions.

Christian values freed slaves.

Christian values did just fine.

Erik, Christian values are a guidepost by which we live our lives, not a measuring stick for govt. Our founders were very clear on the desire to make our govt a secular one, free from religious intervention and one that did not encroach religion on it's citizens.

So Erik, was it the Christian values of the Puritans or the Quakers that did those things?

Wrong.

The Founders were OK if states wished to create a state religion. They specifically restricted the federal gov't from establishing a national religion.

But, if it makes you feel better, it was white,Christian men who freed th slaves, gave women the right to vote and established invidual rights over collective rights.

Jews, Muslims and every other religion never produced people who looked beyond their faith and established freedoms for all.

Christian values stifle liberty, freedoms, creativity, thought. Christian values created immorality.

I have to wonder why a sick conservative like Ritty would be interested in what is my bedroom to begin with? So much for liberty and freedom let alone individuality.

Were you there Chuck, whip in hand? See how stupid your remark is? It is possible to disagree without being disagreeable.

"I have to wonder why a sick conservative like Ritty would be interested in what is my bedroom to begin with? So much for liberty and freedom let alone individuality."

You're right, Chuck, it's none of my business. My bad. Actually, you work for a living, and are a law-abiding citizen—that's all a fellow citizen can ask. It's puzzling why your so in the tank for the Left.

"But, if it makes you feel better, it was white,Christian men who freed th slaves, gave women the right to vote and established invidual rights over collective rights." The same people enslaved people, withheld many rights from others and established their rights to control others.

"Christian values freed slaves." They were also used to enslave people.

Erik, there is much that is great about this country. I think you take away from that greatness by not acknowledging the warts. Your posts of 10:23 and 11:39 are good examples.
