Re: why things are thin
It's not just Creationists though.

For over a half century Christianity, particularly in the US has become totally focused on avoiding reality.

It began to accelerate in the 1950s, primarily driven by integration. The Avoidance Schools were the first step and the Avoidance School Board Members the second major step. The two primary goals initially were to keep little Johnnie from having to sit next to a darkie but then to try to take over control of the public schools as well.

Even into the late 1960s to early 1970s the US society was ordered as God intended; there was the world of the White Male Anglo-Saxon Protestant, the world of the White Female Anglo-Saxon Protestant and the everyone else but that world was under threat and attack.

My future Father-in-law was a graduate of the University of North Carolina and so when his daughter went off to college she too went to UNC, but not in Chapel Hill. She went to the Women's College of the University of North Carolina which was in Greensboro.

In her senior year though WC change names to The University of North Carolina Greensboro and started admitting males.

After graduating and our marriage she started teaching art at Gillespie Junior High. It was South of the Tracks and even all the students were from the neighborhood and were black. The day she was assigned her classroom she returned home crying. Only half of the lights had bulbs, the total art supplies for the class was one 50-pound block of modeling clay, many of the windows were missing blinds and only half would even open.

Yet again, the proper world was being threatened. Since many of the streets South of the Tracks were still unpaved and city sewer and water nearly non-existent there was an outcry for change. There was a push to bus kids from South of the Tracks to the schools North of the Tracks and even demands that maybe the roads should get paved, and sewer and water extended.

The result was the sudden creation of a whole bunch of Church Schools and unfortunately even though The City really wanted to pave the roads and expand the water and sewer system the funds would just not be available immediately.

But soon. We promise.

The World remained as God intended, split into the three classes, White Male Anglo-Saxon Protestants, White Female Anglo-Saxon Protestants and the lesser breeds. Even the fact of a Roman Catholic President was seen only as an aberration.

The trend has continued. Once integration lost its hold as the demon the Christian Cult of Ignorance simply found and created new Demons, abortion and science and communists and socialists and gays and trans-sexuals and ...

There is never a shortage of "Thems".

Re: So where is this honor code?Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
Oh Phat is definitely a Christian, a very common type of Christian, one that God and Jesus would spit on.

Phat again shows that he despises Jesus.
And so once again you refuse to provide either evidence for your assertions or even a reasoned argument.

And you have never explained what any of your whining has to do with the topic or address the actual evidence straight from the Bible.
