    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    The right to life is inherent in one's living. It is not political in the least.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    That makes no sense. It's circular reasoning. Illogical.

    All rights are necessarily political without exception.

    Except for a living thing's right to its life.

    I don't expect you to ever get it. That is fine with me.

    "Living things" don't have rights. Only men have rights and those rights are necessarily political.

    I get it. You're superstitious. Cool beans.

    Every living thing has a right to its life. Even you.

    It's amusing how sensitive you people can be when the criticism ceases to be a one-way street. Have a great evening.

    You can have neither.

    When I got done with a priest one day, he finally admitted that Noah was just a parable.
    Unfortunately it just happened to be the priest that was going to marry us. Luckily he was my wife's godfather so he married us anyways.

    Yes I have a problem giving up on a fight.
    LOL

    I like that story.


    One interesting from my bible study days is if a woman in the Old Testament is "barren," by god, she WILL have a baby at some point. That must have really meant something back then.

    Another interesting thing--and this is one evangelicals ought to pay attention to--they cannot remarry. They can marry once. They can "set that spouse aside" or divorce. But, they cannot remarry. If they do so, they will be living in sin and when they die, they will die in a state of sin.

    True that. The Big J lays it out in Matthew.
