Comp: I’m flattered by the reference. You were at a loss for something to write and I sprang to mind.
Comp: By all means, you should use it if someone ever plays that comment on you. I’m sure you could insert all the best words to make it really scorching.
Comp: I love that one. I first heard it during the Carter administration, but it gets better. Here’s the retort from back then: “It’s only natural that you give birth from where you’ve been inseminated” Of course, the original used crude language and euphemisms that I don’t employ, but you get the point.
Upside: And just what forces would agree to do that? Who are these militant, unwavering followers of Obama?
Sloandog: maybe things are different where you live, but I doubt it. Go down to the post office and look at the people working there and compare it to your average infantry company. If the difference isn’t laughable enough consider that the mailmen are people too and why would mailmen follow Obama any more than the army would? Seriously, how do you live with such fear?
Anonymous: When anyone says that America has become a nation of sheeple, I always figure that they know themselves best. But you don’t know the German people of post WWI. When you consider their long held social conditioning and combine it with the events of that period, you see that they were prime for the ideology that Hitler offered. He didn’t emerge from a vacuum. Otherwise, I like you theory that people who like “free stuff and the idea that they don't have to work for a living” would actually do one of the hardest jobs in the world.
Sloandog: Wow, you’re even paranoid about your mailman. Sorry, but all those agencies combined would not have the ability to maintain control of even a small portion of this country.
An interesting side note to all this vitriol is to pair it to all the folks who believe that Obama and the forces of evil are going to declare martial law or try to take away our guns. My answer has always been “Him and what army?”

Can Christianity In The West Endure?

Brian: In England, which is all that Conner addresses, the Protestants were much harder on the Catholics than they were on the Protestants; and for a much longer time as well. Otherwise, you are right. As the predecessor, Catholicism was very hard on all the upcoming Christian sects. My point is the Conner blithely ignored when the “shoe was on the other foot”. As for the rest of your comment, Christianity is the belief that Jesus was the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, who died and rose again. The reality that you can’t accept is that instead of bending to God’s Will, Protestants bend God to the will of man.

What an odd column. Of course Christianity can and will endure as nothing on Earth can overpower it. All we have here is Connor showing his faithlessness and lack of historical perspective. Catholics are Christians too. As power shifted in England, the Catholics became the victims and the atrocities were just as bad. Inter-Christian violence was common in European history with the eventual result of the violence receding and Christianity enduring. None of that however has any viable bearing on the topic it this column. Just as violence or indifference cannot weaken faith, persecution does not strengthen it. It is in the individual heart where any struggle actually takes place. True faith is impervious to the outside world. A weak or false faith is swayed by all it encounters.
Bird: Great idea. Drop us a line when you get there so we know you make it ok.
