Well, I'm proud you are taking a poli-sci class, Zero! Fun class. Don't think it'll compare to years of personal study. I took a couple of
accounting classes but my neice still knows a lot more than I do! LOL!
Why thank you. It is a fun class; my proff is cool too !
Inthis nation, it is recognized that our rights are given to us by the Creator, who is understood to be the God of Abraham. Because these rights are
by him and not the government, they are unalienable. That protects our nation from the government trying to usurp our rights as they do not have the
authority to do so.
AS this nation is a Christian nation, it is clearlyu understood what is right and not right, proper and improper, a sin and not a sin. This has been
the guide for the nation since its birth. Down through the years, our nation has evolved, and evolved for the better. Ending slavery, for example, was
a good thing. In doing so, however, we did not take something that is clearly wrong and make it acceptable. Freeing a group of humans is not an
abomination, nor is it something that will degrade the nation, the culture
Now, either you are confused and contradicting your earlier statement -- " First, you must understand that your assumption that my assumption that
this nation is a Christian theocracy is incorrect. It never has been, nor will it ever be a theocracy, not as long as our guiding documentation is as
--, or insinuating a false notion that God is the devine prescriber of 'rights' in America.
Now, the dictionary definition of a theocracy stands as folllows:
1 : government of a state by immediate divine guidance or by officials who are regarded as divinely guided
2 : a state governed by a theocracy
Remember, America may be a 'Nation one under God', but that does not insinuate God being the 'bearer of laws, rights, freedoms and liberties' in
America; these are but conventional accords 'written by man' for man during the the Age of Enlightenment
, and synthesized under 'rational'
and 'reason', not the spurious," God is the measure of man". Those 'rights' given by 'God' were chided for thier undecency towards wo/men, as
this is quite evident in the treatment towards non-christians for centuries under a Christian rule and it's inability to progress, not only society,
but the mental progress of man: we also see this quite well in the current train of thought amongst mainstream fundamentalist Christians who are
proponents of "Creationism", "non-secularism", and whatever else those naysayers of reason and subordinates of conceptual habitution can fathom.
God of Abraham you say ? Pray tell that it is not the same xenophobic clan God YAWEH, a jelous and often angered anthromorphic diety demanding utter
obedience by it's subjects and an outright onerous attitude towards other cults and followings usualy regurgitated in a contradictory manner with
dubious authenticity ? The very same God that commands those naysayers to the pits of hell; the very same God that maxim dictates the death of
innocent children, women, and depending on the writer, the rape of these very people...
Exodus:20:5 - Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me
Now, can you give me a praxiological discourse as per, 'sin' ? Christianity is not the sole prescriber of morals, ethics, and values in the west;
these are 'relative', and, as we can tell, relativism manifests itselft in the pluralist society of America quite well: From Sikhs, Hindu's,
Buddhists, Orthodox Christians, Aborginals, to the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, and all the way to our good Russian freinds, Germans, Pols, Chezs, we
see a clash of cultures and values that are subject to thier original enviroments. Each of these peoples make America, not just Christians...
The harm that will happen to the nation is moral harm. This is another step to an anything goes degeneration that will eventually lead to a nation
that is so corrupt, so rotted, that it will not have the spirit or strength to defend itself from within or without.
Who is talking about the liberal conspiracy? I am, and so are you. This particular topic is part of the battle plan to destroy the nation, and after
the nation is destroyed, the government will be corrupted or taken over as well.
Once again, morals are relative; BUT, the uniform moral of America is that off acceptance regardless of caste, creed, sex, race, etc....
How is homosexuality going to lead to the 'already corrupt, so rotted' society it already is ?
Let's take a look back at time shall we:
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed,
those who are cold and are not clothed."
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
April 16, 1953
To the current fiasco of the last 5 idiot presidents who have readily decreased social services in favour of military endevours, and ever coerced the
United nations to, "Thank the United States for its contributions", lower its obligations, "and publicy report to all member nations how much the
United States has spent supporting security council resolutions since Jan. 1, 1990." Now we all know how much money America owes to the UN; we all
know how many times America has used the power of Veto every time it breaks a human rights violations -- just about on a regular basis; everytime
Isreal breaks human rights violations, it's vetoed by America --biggest breaker of human rights in the world mind you; and, well, we can also throw
in Geneva, treaties with out countries....
For a country were one in 4 children starve; for a country who re-elected an idiot again; for a country that justifies war under false pretexts; for a
country that has commited the most human rights violations the world has seen, you sure are ignorant...
