Bravo! I like people who recognize prigs (and know what the word means) and take a public stand against them
Capital idea, but that would mean that our government would lose an effective boogeyman with which they can scare the electorate into surrendering their liberty and the contents of their bank accounts for bloated bureaucracy at home and pointless regime change and nation building abroad.
Good. Now you're catching on to my sarcasm. As a boy, I learned my craft at Our Lady of Perpetual Snark. :-)
Well played, eric. I may not always agree with you, but I like the cut of your jib.
eric, I'm only an occasional TH visitor, although I have been coming here since the site opened. Confusion and hypocrisy still reigns supreme.
Yeah. That's in the Gospel of Luke, right? And Jesus said, "Verily I tell you to nuke the enemies of my Father and all of His creation about them."
That's right. Everyone knows that the Jews were never, ever persecuted or scapegoated for their religious beliefs by any Western country prior to Karl Marx.
Roger that tibby2. I enlisted three times and swore to defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic who would strip away our Liberty. I was prepared to lay down my life to protect the natural or God-given rights of my fellow citizens to speak, assemble, worship and petition their government with grievances. I'm not a religious person, but I respect and revere the Constitution. I have often wondered since then, how many of my fellow religious citizens would reciprocate for me.
eric, I guess that Ransom is right about you, dude. You are pretty dense not to recognize sarcasm, even when it supports your point.
Yeah. That's why Hitler ordered "Gott Mitt Uns" removed from the belt buckles of Werhmacht soldiers. No Western country has ever used God or religion to dupe its peasants into being cannon fodder and justify the evil ends of its rulers in all of recorded history.
The Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black" has nothing to do with religion. It's about the songwriter's grief after the untimely death of his loved one. "I see a line of cars and they're all painted black. With flowers and my love, both never to come back." That sounds suspiciously like a funeral procession in the context of the song. "Sympathy for the Devil" is a parody. The song acknowledges the evil that the devil does in the world while wearing a human face. Lyrics like, "I rode a tank held a general's rank while the Blitzkreig raged and the bodies stank" doesn't sound like devil worship.
