Just my own 2 cents worth. Any, (and I mean ANY) religion allowed enough political clout, WILL use that clout in pursuit of even greater clout. I've read the bible. Heck, it was reading the bible that finally made me realize that 99 percent is quite clearly the ravings of some ancient sun-stroked middle-eastern desert hermits, and 1 percent plain old folk-wisdom for leading a moral, less-stressful life, that has been around since people were.. Organized religions are the adult residues of "Daddy, mommy, I'm afraid of the dark", that have been embellished over the years by those counting on "Believers" for their IRA cont6ributions. Gubmint MUST stay away from religion, or it WILL use religion to pursuit its own means.

Spoken with all the wisdom of a 14-year old. I have the feeling you will change when you get older. Even the Beatles gained some respect for traditional morality when they had children of their own.

You could thumb your nose at God all your life, but you might just end up with a screwed up, miserable Chastity (Chase) Bono for a daughter (son?).

Agreed, Dread. TDBLU's comment may qualify as the stupidest comment I have read on this site and that includes a LOT of competition (I won't name names - fill that in for yourself). Heck, I've even made some embarrassingly stupid statements on TH, but nothing that compares with this one by TDBLU.

You know, it would be interesting sometime to have people relive the stupidest comments from the stupidest people here on TH. Of course, because of the sheer volume of stupidity, it might end up shutting down the TH server.

Conservatives who've warned for years of President Obama's ideological extremism are often dismissed as melodramatic conspiracy theorists. Obama apologists argue that the President is not an ideologue, but an intellectual whose grasp of America's true needs is so nuanced and sophisticated that the...
