“When it comes to Sin & Salvation, I always saw God acting as a mafia boss. Here's the analogy: Say you own a store, and a guy with a shotgun walks into your store, and says "nice place you got here!....... be a shame if something happened to it. But if you give me $50 a week, I'll make sure nothing bad happens".”

“The only difference he gives it to you for free all you have to do is ask. Would you let a group of people come into your home not follow your rules and do as they please? God won't allow it his home. But rest assured there will be people thrown into a Lake just with fire instead of water!”

“I live in the New Jersey Suburbs. There's a bus that will take me into New York City in one hour and 5 minutes about 200 feet from my doorstep. However, I prefer to take the train (NJ Transit) into the city, but the train station is 15 minutes away by car. Both get me to the city and the airports. I never have to worry about the ridiculous parking fees, or driving in Manhattan traffic.”

“Florida politicians worry more about what they think gays might do than actual things like kids accidentally killing grandpa with an AK-47 semi-auto rifle at a family picnic like what happened recently.

“I agree about your first statement. We are a century or two behind Europe. I've been on the ICE in Germany once, and a bunch of trains around London. However, I've also ridden the Acela quite a few times because I live in New Jersey. It's good, but it still needs infrastructure improvement. I rode the Amtrak Cardinal from Indianapolis to DC, sleeper car and all, and I enjoyed the scenery.”
