lol... ok... so you don't understand the point of my OP and you want me to explain it to you? ...sorry i don't buy it, you can't be that
I can’t be clueless enough to read your initial post, which outlines your disgust at “true conservatism”, even though you never outline what you
feel “true conservatism” to be? I can’t be clueless enough to read your initial post, which describes how “true conservatism” has been
corrupted and twisted; even though you never describe what you believe has corrupted and twisted it? I can’t be clueless enough to figure out how
you somehow equate conservatism with being a member of the GOP, even though you never explain that correlation?
If that is clueless, so be it.
So since you are so hyped to tell me that i am wrong. Why don't you just school me... you said you'd be happy to, so here i am waiting to be
We’ll get to that in a moment, but I want to reiterate that isn’t my intention. I am not “hyped” to tell you that you are wrong; I’m simply
seeking to have an “adult” discussion about this, which you seem incapable of.
I see the collective objective has been reached... my congratulations goes out to all the thread killers.
The only person who has killed this thread thus far is you, which your inability to answer direct questions regarding a topic that you started.
I think you guys have ATS's slogan flipped, unless it's been change recently ... it's not "deny facts" or to "deny truth"... it's to
Not so. I think you could argue that by denying incorrect facts and untruths, that you are in fact denying ignorance. You have not presented either
facts or truths in your posts, only speculations which you refuse to back up and stand by.
Here's a google of "Religion and the GOP"
plus this great article... should bring those of you who are truly clueless up to speed...
Conservatives Against Religion in Politics... When it Embarrasses Them!
Alright, your first link is simply a redirect to a Google search. What are you trying to show us here? Apparently, and to no surprise, the Republican
party tends to house more people of faith and religion than others. And? Are you somehow suggesting that people of faith are inferior to those who do
not believe, and that somehow that has led what you feel to be “true conservatives” astray?
Your second link is an article that is basically a further attempt to bash people of faith. It suggests that somehow people of faith are
“ignorant” and therefore unfit for public office. It also seems to suggest that anyone who takes into account the religious beliefs of someone
else is somehow to stupid to be able to vote.
The information you have provided seems to be nothing but baseless hate mongering on the basis of religion. I still can’t seem to find a correlation
between the information you have thus far provided, and the intent of your OP, which spoke of the influence of religion on the GOP, but never
specified exactly what areas you feel have been influence by this.
...as i was saying why should i expand/elaborate when we already have a wealth of information readily available around us.
Again, because you created this thread here at ATS. If you didn’t want to discuss the information put forth, why put it forth at all. We all have
access to search engines, and could have found this on our own; the point of ATS is to discuss these issues, not to simply advertise them.
I just made a simple effort to bring it here for those too stubborn to take their blinders off... to act dumb, be willfully ignorant and
twist what we know to be true is no contribution to any discussion on this matter, or any relevant topic that you refuse to acknowledge.
I refuse to acknowledge anything, I will discuss and refute any information you provide to the best of my abilities.
For further information, please see this thread
