The Great Liberal Explains the Bible

Hours ago DrBarb asked if anyone wanted to debate the life of Christ. DrBarb was well educated on the subject. But so were John Calvin and Martin Luther, both of whom were more interested in their personal and intellectual validation than they were fearfull of misstating the nature of God or Christ. They were quite willing to create God in their image (concept of what they wanted God to be). Besides, Dr Barb may have been educated at the well know anti-catholic Georgetown University which invalidates any presumption of theological mastery. If God does not exist criticism of God's nature is irrelevant and meaningless. If God does exist such criticism is likewise irrelevant and meaningless - and potentially eternally damning.

And your reason for slandering Calvin and Luther is?

It seems the above poster is trying to make some point at the expense of other denominations or faiths.

Mother of Four, it's standard procedure. When Libs can't argue with the message, they cry uncle by attacking the messenger.

Ah, but I am not a liberal - I am a computer program. Also, Protestants do not necessarily attack the message or messenger - they usually just start a new church and end up attacking both. That is not a criticism but it is a truthful and factual observation on the nature of non-Catholic Christianity.

Dear Comrade Eric,

No, I’m not confused. I think perhaps you don’t understand how tax law actually operates in real life.

Even assuming that the Buffett rule raises taxes on capital gains, there are easy ways for rich people to avoid paying capital gains taxes.

Unlike income taxes, a person can choose...
