I have been involved in several very heated discussions lately, here on ATS, between Christians and Atheists. I must say that it troubles me very
deeply. I have found myself lashing out at others in defense of my beliefs. This is out of character for me. In the REAL world, per se, this never
happens to me. I do have friends who are either Atheist or Agnostic, and we are able to discuss things amongst ourselves civilly.
The links to Atheist websites that have been introduced in these topic threads, are frightening. They seem to be trying to incite some type of action
against believers of Christianity. Is this really necessary? The thing I look at is; Most of us are deeply troubled at being at war with Iraq. I
believe that most of us can agree on that., Christian and Atheist alike. The other is that there is wide-spread belief that the affairs of our
government is in serious trouble. Can we agree on that? There is a lot of troubling things going on, such as the possibility of a police State and/or
a NWO. As the old saying goes, "A house divided against itself, cannot stand."
I would like to propose that we stop the bickering on this issue, and band together on the more important issue of saving our country. I think that
this is the most serious issue that we have at hand. I apologize for any statement that I might have made that would have seemed offensive to anyone.
Can we start over?
I would like to propose here that we start reconciling valid, deeply thought out ways to stop this runaway train, called the U.S. Government, as it
now stands. I know that there are some very fine and intelligent minds here on this website. I have seen it over and over. Let's stop tearing each
other to bits and start trying to fix our country. This invitation goes out to members outside the country as well. Because I have seen their concern
many times, and some of their viewpoints. So how about, let's get them all together in one place?
Folks, the condition of our country is too important for us to be fighting amongst ourselves. Let's call a truce on this type of fighting and try to
do something constructive. Any ideas?
