A Sunday section on religion is one thing

July 15, 2014

The Fourth's banner headline on the front page reading "GOD BLESS AMERICA" against a colorful and celebratory backdrop is quite another....

James Pollock (1810-1890), who once served as a county judge in Williamsport, became Pennsylvania's thirteenth governor and later director of the United States Mint. Pollock, born in nearby Milton, proposed that the phrase “the trust of our people in God” be inscribed on all American coins. The secretary of the treasury, Salmon P. Chase, accepted the proposal but changed the wording to “In God we trust.” Since 1864, the phrase has appeared on all U.S. coins.

"So, the liberals love to ridicule and poke fun at those who follow a single God.....meanwhile, they position President Obama as their god, who cannot be questioned, cannot be insulted and should be given everything he asks for by his political opponents."

You should see my altar.

SWC, you can ridicule Christians all that you want. It ends up making YOU look bad, and from what I've seen, it doesn't take much."

I'm not the one who believes in talking snakes, virgin births, zombies rising from the grave, a 6,000 year-old-earth, and a god who tortures children for eternity.

Now, who looks bad?

Chuck: 'YOU TRULY DO HATE LIBERALS!

WE GET IT YOU DON'T LIKE US! '

Don't get agitated Chuck. We don't like your positions on the issues. Nothing personal.

SWC, did you go back and read your 9:09AM post? It is an argument that you have used before, hence a 'tired argument'. You can ridicule Christians all that you want. It ends up making YOU look bad, and from what I've seen, it doesn't take much.

"AC: '"Same old tired arguments?" What are the same old tired rebuttals, not sure I ever heard them.'

Read you 9:09AM post"

Steeler,

Your debate team always finished last, didn't it?

Why is it Christian Apologists never reply with facts?

Wait a second, I think I know why...

I am neither angry nor cynical, where did that come from?

SWCCrew, you need to back off on that trigger finger, buddy. You're gonna get a reputation for repeating posts. :)

"American Citizen, you're also another angry cynical person with the same old tired arguments. Have a nice day."

So, anyone who does not agree to bow before your space god is angry and cynical? Wonderful rebuttal.

"You sound like an angry cynical person SWC."

Why would you believe that? Because I don't believe in your fairy tale? Are people who don't believe in Harry Potter also angry and cynical?

If I decided to worship the sun god, would you feel any better?

"There IS NO argument for a Deity that would convince you."

An argument? No, it wouldn't convince me. But evidence definitely would. Just think for a second how easy it would be for a being that can literally do ANYTHING to convince the entire world that it was God, even the most sceptical atheist scientist. I bet you can come up with a dozen ways in under a minute; and that's YOU, a fallible, imperfect human being.

"Intelligent" design.....

like maybe a urinary tract that runs straight through the prostate gland? Or perhaps an unnecessary structure like the appendix, prone to inflammation and rupturing? How about respiratory and digestive systems forced to share the same plumbing? Familiar with the nerve that runs from the brain, around the heart and to the voicebox in all creatures that have them? No big deal for a frog but its a nine-foot detour for a giraffe. Need I even mention the fact that men have nipples?

This was all designed on purpose, right? It only LOOKS like a bunch of biological flaws, redundancies and over-complications that were the result of blind cumulative processes.....

At last, a liberal has achieved a goal.-Sybil

Typical of Con/TP "Flock/Herd" members such as yourself(s). Take part of a sentence, interpret/state it out of context, & consider yourself(selves) clever. I DO understand however, when it's all ya got, it's all ya got.-Have a Serene, Calm, Evening, & remember--Deep Breaths!!-LOL!!-Scott

"Look around you. Do you think nature and science came all by accident? It's logical to assume that Intelligent Design was responsible."

I asked for proof. Not 5th grade rhetoric.

It's obvious that you have never read a book on science.

However, I'll play devil's advocate. Let's say intelligent design was possible. Even then it is not proof of your space god.

It could be Thor, Zeus, Shiva, Kali, or the god who was responsible for my triple posting.

And you are not intelligent enough to see that big government does the exact same thing!-eriklatranyi

Deflection? You prefer to be controlled by one entity over another? Question my intelligence?(I could care less, my life long goal is not to be considered "intelligent", or liked by the local Con/TP herd) If you want to live your life hating the United States Gov. that is your choice, I happen to love this country, her flaws and all. But at least try to stay on topic with something relevant to say(parrot)-Have a Great day!!-Scott
