You should have your Stockholm Syndrome looked at. It can be cured.
Fear was used as a weapon against you to the point of loving to hate just as it was used on those who would not believe this preacher that decided to stop lying to his flock.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lv_rmQuagpY&feature=playe...
As an aside. God, as Jesus, so some think, said he came to cure the ill and not those who were well.
Why do you have God taking the moral low ground and killing, instead of, --- like Jesus, --- taking the moral high ground and curing?

Re: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
It WAS the best nation, I didn't say it still is. It's been corrupted by the very opinions that are so prolific at EvC. Corrupted and on the verge of total destruction.

Re: HRe: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
There's nothing I can do about wrong executions. Fortunately they are now often discovered and corrected by DNA testing. Mistakes don't invalidate the principle of the death penalty. I'm sure you feel morally superior by rejecting that principle though. There's nothing moral about that.

Re: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
I agree that there is a lot of corruption in the U.S. and that it is mostly do to it's majority whom are Christian.
You might want to recognize how those you dislike here are trying to show your ilk where they are corrupted in order to make the U.S. a better nation.

Wow.
Now it is more moral to hold to a system that is unforgiving in terms of correcting mistakes, as life cannot be return to the innocent, than to move to a more moral position that always allows us to fix mistakes.
You show how your morality has been corrupted by your religion.
You are part of the problem and not a part of the solution as you reject the solution to injustice as proposed by ringo.
Satan has you well in hand.

Re: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
It was Christian from the beginning, in spite of the betrayal of Deists. The vast majority were serious Christians and that is what brought all the blessings of prosperity and just general goodness to this nation. Haters of Christianity, so many of whom post here, have always tried to undermine that influence nevertheless, being ignorant of its role in American greatness, but they didn't really get power until the sixties and it's been downhill since then.

Re: HRe: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
Yes, the death penalty is necessary. I'm glad we now have ways of proving someone innocent that we didn't have before.
ABE: Bet you couldn't care less about the murder of 55 million unborn babies, though you wring your hands over judicial mistakes. I care about both.

I see. From the beginning.
So it was Christians who decimated the native population stole their country, left them in ghettoes/reservations and brought slavery to North America.
All things you are proud of yet you do not see yourself as one of the corrupted ones. Wow again.

Re: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
If you actually knew any history you would know it wasn't the Christians who did those things.
Your attack on Christians is exactly what has been engineered by the forces corrupting America for the last decades, false accusations, the very hallmark of the work of the devil. You're a shill for the devil.

Re: HRe: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
Jesus said he came to cure the sick yet you think killing is a necessary thing even though innocent people are executed.
You are one hard hearted immoral woman.
Shame on you even though you are too corrupted to know how ashamed of yourself you should be.
What if your child were one of the innocent that was wrongfully executed. Would you be so cavalier with life?
What id one of your children were created gay, would you also deny them the right to marry someone they loved?

Re: HRe: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
Nobody is "created" gay, it is one of those deformations of nature that are the result of the Fall. I've also never said they can't get married, what I object to is their requiring ME to accept it.
You are the very mouth of the devil.
