This is why I am not a Christian: I am not to be held responsible for choices made by other people. I will not accept as righteous divine punishment that falls upon an individual for the crimes of a large populace. I will not accept a God who will punish me for a moral error made by someone else.

He has places for His followers and places who don't/won't follow His precepts.

Even someone who does not believe in God ought to see the advantage in living in a country where most people are Christian. It's a no brainer really. It has so many advantages, but no disadvantages.

I have to admit that when Obama “won” re-election I became more depressed than Madonna’s audience was when they were forced to watch her strip the other night. For God’s sake, Madonna, put some material on that mess, material girl. I guess she’s going to follow Cher’s path and torture us with her exhibitionism ‘til she takes the big dirt nap. Like a virgin? Yeah … right. More like a sturgeon. Hang it up, Madge … you’re scaring the children. Anyway, back to my post-election depression.

As I was saying, giddy I was not that Obama secured a second term via...
