You don't hear about the religious left because they're not prone to attempting to control the lives of others

Jeshua was raised FROM the dead, thereby making him a non-corpse(and behold he is alive for evermore!)

Also, What are you meaning about Lions?


what proof can you offer that Jesus was raised from the dead? I don't mean to pick a fight (but I know it'll probably balloon out of control anyways) but I see that argument so often yet I see no proof offered other than "faith" (the evidence of things hoped for but not seen - which, btw is another BS phrase that people love to spew that means nil to nothing)

The thing is, I don't have to prove to you he is dead, but you have to prove he is alive. And to that end, how that relates to our society and furthermore, how he relates to the economy and a country that worships the almighty dollar rather than the almighty god. Is that phrase "IN GOD WE TRUST" our way of paying lip service or is it really something that "christians" actually believe when they look at our currency. I'll iterate it once more: most "Christians" are of the twice a year variety. The hardcore believers tend to use that skewed data to push their agenda forward (as in "we have the majority when it comes to religion" type arguments) when in actuality I'd be willing to bet that most "Christians" do not care or have enough invested in their faith to give a damn.

Wow. That's so totally wrong it's amazing. Lots of religious lefties protesting the war, protesting closing borders, burning SUVs, and protesting other idiotic things worldwide.

They are constantly attempting to push the socialist and fascist views of the left.

They're just not as well organized as the right, don't tend to have the support that the right does, and the media doesn't cover them nearly as much.

Your pal,
Meat.

Incorrect. You would have to prove that He never existed. If you can't do that, then your argument is moot; he existed and - by the same token - everything he did happened.

Meat.

An yes, the "We don't necessarily mean OUR god *wink wink nudge nudge*" defense. Do Christians really think the rest of us are so stupid as to think when you're pushing God into government, you mean Vishnu, too?


Seriously, what makes you people think 'Christians' have anything to do with this?


You atheists and anti-religious types are so foaming-at-the-mouth and urging for a fight with Christians. Christian identity does not belong to the Republican party, it does not belong to the people who push for 'In God We Trust' etc. Those are the actions of individuals who call themselves Christian.

See, the concept of an individual may be a little disconcerting to an anti-Christian etc. because they have this notion that a few priveleged fatcats manipulating conservative parties somehow represents all Christians as a whole.

Do I judge all Muslims for the actions of extremist political groups in the Middle East? Nope. I don't go out looking to pick a fight with people over loose affiliation to philosophic ideas.

And I'm comfortable with that kind of logic. I heartily recommend it
