Serenity, you followed my statements precisely but you are applying it to yourself. Check the very first sentence again.
Hey FunkyMike, welcome.I believe that when great injustices have been done to our fellow human beings, we have to step in and help them with what has been given to this nation. If not us, who?
The use of the word "majority" and the phrase "bottom line" in reference to a very subjective term (tolerant), is interesting. I make that mistake often but what it indicates is that you are passing opinion as fact i.e., "bottom line". Using the term majority requires real mathmatical calculations applied in this case, to an undefined term.The bottom line is, the majority of the Islamic based Governmental systems are incapable of even grasping the meaning of the word "tolerant". To them, we are ALL infidels deserving of death.
Not all of their arguements do I disagree with. Such as the putrid immorality being spewed through America and around the world from the entertainment industry.
Think about those two comments for a second...This is the America in red across the nation, although there are many more millions scattered across the blue states stuck in limbo between socialism and capitalism. There is a great divide and it starts with morality
While I do believe in forgiving an individual of sins committed against you, I do not believe in allowing lives of innocent people to be slaughtered in the name of "love your enemies".
I guess not.I believe that when great injustices have been done to our fellow human beings, we have to step in and help them with what has been given to this nation. If not us, who?
... As a matter of fact, no president should ever try to impose religion on our society. The great... the great tradition of America is one where people can worship the way they want to worship.
And if they choose not to worship, you're just as patriotic as your neighbor. That is an essential part of why we are a great nation. And I am glad people of faith voted in this election. I'm glad...
And I don't think you ought to read anything into the politics, the moment, about whether or not this nation will become a divided nation over religion. I think the great thing that unites us is the fact you can worship freely if you choose, and if you... you don't have to worship.
And if you're a Jew or a Christian or a Muslim, you're equally American. That is... that is such a wonderful aspect of our society, and it is strong today and it will be strong tomorrow.
