“well, kids are taught they are nothing but a product of 'slime and time' in the schools and that there are no absolute morals.......what do you expect?? with no God in the culture this is what happens........”

“God cultures are some of the most violent and bloody. Just read some history.”

“Maybe you haven't read the bible. These values ARE YOUR GOD'S VALUES. The Patriarchal gods in the bible DEMAND blood. Read it and weep. I have read every word of both the old testament and the new testament and I am unimpressed with what god wanted of the world and of the human being he created. REMEMBER ALWAYS. He created them exactly like he wanted them to be. He created all the circumstances of theirexistance, and he is doing it perfectly because he is a perfect entity. The people look just like he wants thme to be so you should have no problems with any of them. . . .unless you don't believe in these violent, imperfect gods.
Try humanism, without gods.”

“Not at all true.
It is not true that 'there is no God' in culture.
It IS true that people in schools and public institutions can no longer be subjected to public and specifically denominational prayers and meditations which present only one facet of relationship with God as though that one facet were the only one possible or right.
In the public school my grandchildren study at, they are taught ethics and community responsibility; they are taught critical thinking skills; they are invited into community-building actions. Their specifically religious education comes from parents, grandparents and religious institution, as it ought to do.
You are also in error in not remembering that such villains as Terry McVeigh, the teenage murderers at Columbine High School, and others DID have a complete religious education, and yet chose their violent actions.
What to expect is that human beings, children to adult, are equipped with free will. Some will use that free will to be violent offenders; some will subject that free will and their selfish egotism to the good of all humankind. Religious education and religious affiliation can help guide human beings, but religion cannot bridle individual decision; and forced religious inculcation will not be a valid guide for most folks.”

“With God in the culture, it can happen. Religion is not going to stop murder from occuring in human societies. I would like to find this soceity where crime does not happen at all. There is more God in American culture than in some of the modern European countries.”

“Ok, just to be clear, I am not a fan of others coming to the US and telling us to change because something we have done or do here is offensive.
In this case you are flat wrong. Muslims are not the ones complaining, the Sikh community is because of guilt by appearance. They are a completely different group, very nice people and hard working. Since 9/11 the Sikh community has been lambasted by those who are uninformed or just don't care.”

“Baseball bats and knives just don't seem to be the weapon of choice for these nuts who want to kill a large number of people quickly.”
Tom Joad on Dec 22, 2012 at 16:34:27
“...this is a silly example of false equivalencies...knives cannot do the quantity of damage assault weapons can, nor can baseball bats...cars are not typically used in mass murders and we only have one instance of aircraft being uses as WMD, with devastating effect...so now, EVERYONE boarding an airplane is considered suspect...because that's the world we want...no one wants to ban all guns, we want a ban on weapons of mass destruction (assault weapons with high capacity magazines)...you can keep you hunting rifles, shotguns, target pistols and other non-automatic or non-semiautomatic pistols...”
tiredbutnotsick on Dec 22, 2012 at 16:33:50
“The diffrence is, cars are for driving and guns are for killing. Not just a hunk of metal. I can just see all these nuts driving into a school trying to kill people because they couldn't get their hands on a gun. We don't ban air planes since 9ll, they were used for killing. It has happened only once to my knowledge.”
Skip Moreland on Dec 22, 2012 at 16:33:34
“In every civilized country they have strict gun laws, and all combined they have 1/5 of the murders by guns that we do. And they are not having a surge in murders by other weapons.”
Btolerant on Dec 22, 2012 at 16:33:26
“Yours is a common, yet ridiculous, argument! Name one instance of a mass murder using any weapon besides a gun or bomb... If the guns weren't available, the killing would not happen. Those are the facts. Rant all you want with your pseudo-logic, but you are forgetting one thing: the guns are the problem. Counties with less access to guns and fewer guns available suffer fewer mass murders. That's a fact.
You're simply, totally, and categorically misguided on this one, Krz.”

“Yeah, even nuclear weapons can be used as a weapon...let's let every household own a nuclear weapon. Nothing major, just a tiny warhead. Irrational argument, irrational response. I rather face a psycho freak with a baseball bat than a psycho freak with a Bushmaster. But hey, that's just me.”
“Get a grip..........guns are not the issue here. When you hate and despise God and run Him out of schools and culture, Newtown is what happens.

Still, even though the coming of Cortez was predicted close to the exact time, they missed the part about Cortez being a killing machine for all the native people.

seriously though it is scary that there are so may people in this nation that vote based on perceived likeability rather than skills, experience, demonstrated capabilities, you know those things employers look at prior to hiring someone. something the mccain camp self admittedly failed to do. i would be scared to put my mcdonalds order in her hands let alone ANY working at any position in the public sector.
the only bright spot here, at least they didn't use the sleazy photo of her from three weeks ago. the one where she was at a bar in ca. dressed all in leather, funky hair, makeup and all, looked like one of those dominatrix types. lol just dawned on me, that is a perfect profession for her to go into, no education, no reading necessary. just do as t.roosevelt did metaphorically, speak loudly and carry a big stick.”
