no, it was actually founded on the governing philosophies of ancient greeks, republican rome, and john locke...
life, liberty, pursuit of happiness...
that comes from locke's "life, liberty, and property"
it's odd... for a nation founded on christianity, we have an official piece of sovereign law that states:
Art. 11. the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion;
-treaty of tripoli, unanimously approved in 1797 (that's a decade after the constitution was written...)
and for a nation founded on christianity, there is a surprising lack of mention of it in the constitution...
and for a nation founded on christianity, it's odd that only 3 of the 10 commandments are considered crimes.
If this country's founders are muslims, your life would be very different now. Just imagine living in Iran, will ya? If you like that kinda
lifestyle, no one is stopping you.
...ok, you're comparing a secular democratic republic to a semi-democratic theocracy with a dictatorial head of state...
The end of the world is when one can no longer distinguished between what we should and should not do, such as sodomi. Black and white DO exists and
they will serve as the color that judge you when you do die of cancer or HIV.
the group that is contracting HIV in the highest numbers in the USA is straight black women...
odd... especially since you're drawing a causation between homosexuality and HIV...
and what does cancer have to do with sodomy or any other sexual practice (aside from the contraction of HPV)
Everything and everyone feels that they are ENTITLED to everything nowadays. Equal rights must be earned, not asked.
earned? um.. wow, that's messed up. what have white christian males done to "earn" equal rights over there years?
exterminate native americans (who then had to "earn" their equal rights).. enslave africans (who then had to "earn" their equal rights)...
practically enslave asian americans (who then had to "earn" their equal rights)... subjugate women (who then had to "earn" their equal rights)...
seems like there's a bit of a double standard here...
Adults parading in leather things and chaps during sundays in front of children are not the way to make people accept you and your lifestyle, such
displays are unnecessary.
and people yelling on college campuses about how people need to accept jesus or burn in hell are unnecessary... but those that disagree tend to
tolerate it and just keep walking when they see it.
Would you like straight guys to parade around? Celebrate your "difference" at your home.
...you know, straight guys DO parade around... as one of them, i see it all the time. homosexuals should be allowed to be who they are in public, so
long as they don't offend upon the law
