whyat you guys all fail to understand is that I don't believe that the book is all that Jesus is or says. I relate to a living Christ and not a character in a book.

We totally understand Phat. You make your own God to suit your personal beliefs, needs and circumstances. Just like everybody does. We've been telling you that for years, it's no surprise.

It won't stop us pointing out what your book actually says.

They are usually liberal globalist extremists.

A liberal extremist, wow. What do they do, tell rioting fascists that they're extremely disappointed in them?

Read my lips. Private property is an inalienable right. There are problems with common property held by a government if everyone was forced to give up their assets to the state.
Do the math and explain to me how I would maintain a decent lifestyle by giving it all up. And why I should be the guy in line ahead of you to do it?

You persistently just refuse to understand what is being said. (How many times have you heard that?)

1. It's your bible that commands you to give everything up and follow him. We just point that out because that's what it says. No body blames you for a minute for not doing that, it would be utterly stupid. But know that that is what is expected of you if believe the bible - not just the parts you like or prefer.

2. The government owns huge amounts of property on your behalf paid for by you. Roads, government buildings, airfields, military bases, schools and what all. It's a good thing, it makes society work. The argument isn't about them having everything and you having nothing, it's about how wealth is shared.

Undoubtably people like you should have more and Bezos should have less. It's beyond argument; pretty much every economist and social researcher in the world will tell you that the more unequal a society is, the more unhappy it is. No-one argues for total equality of income anymore, that's madness, but less inequality is worth fighting for.

If your (and my) country really wants to pursue happiness it needs to reduce inequality or wealth.

During Trump's regime he and his wealthy mates have got richer and the poor have got poorer, yet somehow his working class supporters thought he was on their side. You can always rely on stupid.
