Tropical Storm Isaac: U.S. National Hurricane Center Upgrades Issac To Hurricane Status

Tropical Storm Isaac: U.S. National Hurricane Center Upgrades Issac To Hurricane Status

Commented Aug 27, 2012 at 13:25:26 in Green

“I hope you realize that I was being sarcastic, and I was pointing out the irony of how "Bush don't like black people" according to an ignorant artist during the initial days of Katrina, and the fact that if the GOP doesn't get their way with Isaac they (or at least get Ted Nugent too) may very well accuse Obama of bigotry. I love this country, and with that being said, I could only support one candidate--the incumbent Barack Obama.”

“It will be interesting to see if the Republican controlled states ask Obama for help--a state executive must ask the Fed for assistance for Obama to be able to send in the National Guard. It is quite possible that the GOP will stubbornly refuse aid to "prove a point."”

“As crazy as it may sound we are better off with the imperious Falwell-camp actively promoting their theocracy, than the docile Christians who surreptitiously believe that only the believers of the Nazarene will pass through the “pearly gates.” At least the fundamental Falwellians have the audacity to propagate what they truly believe. But either way is a crap-shoot, with lots of torment involved.”

“We could live without religion as our hominin ancestors and we have for a few million years. And if the laws of gravitity change so dramatically, then I can assure you that we wouldn't even be conscience to ponder its implications.”

“Their reasoning, or lack there of, would be that you don't need to pass an IQ test to be in Congress, as Mr. Maher displayed to us in Religulous.”

Why Mitt Romney Should Open Up About His Mormon Story

Commented Aug 26, 2012 at 18:26:19 in Religion

““Do we really want someone in the office of President that puts his religion before the good of this country?” According to the speeches of the most recent past presidents, Romney would be considered a dissenter if he did anything but proselytize his faith.”

“Whats your critique on the fundamental Christain story?”

JimReed on Aug 27, 2012 at 07:41:22

“The problem with Christianity is they have ancient scriptures that must be believed, but they contain flaws. Mormonism made the mistake of adding to the stack of flawed books that must be believed, so they have even more contradictions to deal with, and their people have to be even more unquestioning for it to work.”

“All religions have their crazy stories, starting with the idea of gods. The Mormon one is just the most recent, and the fact that Joe Smith's nutty story was taken seriously in relatively modern times makes it particularly bizarre.”

Why Mitt Romney Should Open Up About His Mormon Story

Commented Aug 26, 2012 at 18:11:01 in Religion

“If you are implying that the mainstream Christian belief solely in the exalted son of God is a better alternative than alien Mormonism, then recall that Thomas Jefferson once wrote that, as described by his biographers, the Nazarene was no more than a charlatan and a fraud. The history of Christianity is much stranger—and definitely more brutal—than Mormonism, beginning with its official inception during the Council of Nicaea in 325 C.E. I think the point is that religion and politics shouldn’t be in bed with one another.”

“Since the “great awakening” or theocratic hijacking, depending on one’s preferences, of politics during the presidency of Ron Reagan, every president has won his election by giving fawning praise to the Christian deities. Unless the average American decides to use reason over passion to choose a president, then by displaying his purported faith in Mormonism Mitt has no chance of winning the election. But then again, if one used reason to elect an official Romney would not stand a chance regardless of his piety!”

“To follow the ignorant and volatile masses would be a grave mistake. As Phillip II of Macedon put it, an army of deer led by a lion is more to be feared than an army of lions led by a deer. If we led Bush II instead of the other way around, would hundreds of thousands of innocent Kurdish folk be liberated from a “phony” despot? I would rather have on my conscience a bad economy than the preventable deaths of many—and why not protect American interests along the way? Add Saddam to your list, I think he deserves the nomination.”

“Interesting analogy. The lion would have a feast, just like the republicans are trying to do.”
