" Founders .... already rejected part of the Ten Commandments ...." No, they didn't. They realized that religion is a matter between man and God, and not something government - any government - should get involved in. They said, "Let's not have a state religion" (as England did, both then and now) "and let's not prevent anybody from worshipping the way they want" - and they were all Christians, except for Franklin and Jefferson and 1 or 2 others, but none of them were atheists.
And lobbyists who contribute to liberal causes - many more lobbyists, many more dollars - are pillars of righteousness?
eric: We don't have "some mythical God" either. Don't you think it's pretty silly to judge an entire religion by the actions of a few young kids - who obviously didn't have a clue?
9. Pretending to be an expert on "climate change": James Hansen, Michael Mann, Al Gore, ........ 8. :" kicking your employees to the curb." Let's ask the Google slaves in San Francisco, who are being bused to work every day. 7. Bill Clinton. 6 Try looking up the definitions of "kill" and "murder". And also take a look at abortion. 5. You really have to reach for an argument. The rest are just too silly to rebut.
Right is right, and there really is a difference between killing and murder. There's this neat new thing called a dictionary that you might find helpful.
In theory, yes, but free will is not absolute. In civilized men, it's reined in by the thought of what the other guy's free will might do.
The Thought Police are out in force, making sure that anyone guilty of Wrongthought or Wrongspeak is severely punished and exiled. Like the guy from the social media company (who, by the way, just happened to invent Javascript, the software that runs their company). It sends a clear message to the rest of us: comply, conform, or be condemned.
That's the kind of determination that got them through D-Day.
Be careful what you wish for. It might come true.
There are a few problems with the holocaust-deniers' stance. First, there are the few survivors, who lived to tell what happened there. (Read Viktor Frankl's book, " Man's Search for Meaning".) Second, there are the few remaining German camp guards, who might be willing to talk about it. Third, there are the Allied soldiers who came into the camps when they were liberated. Then there are the German civilians who lived nearby, who were ordered by Eisenhower to be taken through the camps, to see for themselves what had gone on. True, these numbers are getting smaller every year. But there are still the transcripts of the Nuremberg Trials - and the people who were there, as witnesses and as lawyers.
How about the "vigorous exchange of ideas" relating to "global warming"?
