Re: Faith's latest hate rant
Apparently you aren't familiar with the difference between "saying" prayers and praying, Phat. Saying prayers is what Catholics do, they recite prayers such as the Lord's Prayer, sometimes they are told by the priest in the confessional to say it over and over some particular number of times, or "Haii Mary," examples of what scripture says are the empty repetitive prayers hey think are heard but aren't.

Oh good grief. Nobody is pretending to counsel God, tell Him what to think, I'm extrapolating His view from what He Himself has told us about His views. No wonder it's so hard to get across the simplest thought to anyone here. Why did He give us the Bible? So we'd know what He thinks, so we wouldn't be in the dark. He's told us He hates lies, it's one of the Ten Commandments for pete's sake, He hates "bearing false witness," He condemns it. So we know He hates slander. The Bible also tells us that Satan is "the accuser of the brethren" and that's what PC is, a collection of false accusations.

I'm quite familiar with the difference.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

Re: Faith's latest hate rant
I guess I misunderstood you.

So your point is what? God doesn't hate PC because He isn't conservative or liberal? That's a non sequitur. He hates PC because it's a hateful pack of lies designed to hurt people and further a particular political position. He doesn't like hateful lies no matter whose they are.

PC is not a collection of false accusations. It's basically respect for others.

Labeling something as a lie does not make it so. Unless you do the chicken thing, of course.

Evidence, Faith. You have none. Just delusions.

Edited by JonF, : No reason given.

Yes, your misreading of the Bible has been pointed out repeatedly.

Ringo, your record of being right is pushing something like oh maybe 2%. Your one liner potshots are very seldom accurate.

If your assessment of me is as accurate as your knowledge of the Bible and science... thank you.

Re: Faith's latest hate rant
PC is not a pack of lies under any political position. It's respect for others. Sometimes overdone, but never a lie.

That's just your and your fellow right-winger's delusion.

What is hateful about not calling black people "niggers"? How is it a lie? Who is it designed to hurt? What political position does it promote?

Re: Faith's latest hate rant
The value of this site is in pointing out the idiocy of young-earthism and its ilk.

At some point, having a dozen or so folks pointing out the self-documenting idiocy of a single poster does not seem valuable; at least to me. In my opinion, remarkably few folks would need any help seeing where most of this wing-nut crap departs from being rational if we just let Faith's post stand without comment. I don't think the world needs saving from Faith.

But that's just one man's opinion. I certainly don't expect everyone to subscribe to it. Maybe I'm just bored because this shit is too easy.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson

Worrying about the "browning of America" is not racism. -- Faith

Some of us are worried about just how much damage he will do in his last couple of weeks as president, to make it easier for the NY Times and Washington post to try to destroy Trump's presidency. -- marc9000

Once upon a time I was told by another poster that my post was redundant - i.e. it had all been said. But then I got a post-of-the-month nomination. Sometimes the twelfth repetition strikes a chord.
