Not unless she grows a brain before 2012! How can we elect a person to be the leader of the Free World when she doesn't even know that Africa is a continent? Nevermind, G.W. Bush won two terms! In this country, any idiot can win!!

Look little boy, I didn't answer you because I have been dealing with the deaths of my mother and my sister. I don't spend ALL of my time on the computer, especially to have someone who is truly IGNORANT of the TRUE teachings of Jesus Christ. He taught that we should love thy neighbor and to love thy enemy! You seem to focus on the really apocalyptic writings in the (partial) Bible. You really must be a miserable person to have that much hate in your heart. Heaven has NO room for hate. I will pray for you.

Sorry Rectitude, I have to disagree with you on this one. Mostly because you mentioned pedophiles and rapists. I believe people like them will NEVER change, there is something wrong with their consciences and I think they should be locked away for the rest of their lives. They will always be a danger to the people they targeted to begin with.

Whipping them will not take away what is wrong with their minds and I know this from personal experience, unfortunately.

No, death will be easy. It's the part right before you die that I fear. I don't want to suffer, I want it to be quick. That's all I ask from God, well not really all I ask. That's all I ask concerning death.

I don't think the answer is to force old people into retirement. They have lived much longer and experienced much more. Though I do think that old people that continue to cling to outdated ideas should be voted out as quickly as possible!

Some of the greatest political movements came from the younger generations. The Equal Rights Act was almost exclusively supported by the younger generation in the 50's and 60's.

Thank you! It is human nature to judge. Christians get mocked and are unfairly represented in the media all the time. The news media, at any prostest involving Christians, will always interview the most right-wing zealot in the crowd. That's what non-Christians see and it's quite embarrassing.

I believe we are on a personal journey on this planet and the decisions we make (political views, religion, lifestyle) is none of my business nor anyone else's business. I am Christian and I find myself judging people but then I try to mentally reprimand myself. That probably sounds a little cooky but it seems to work for me.

I feel I am in the middle but just a little to the left. It really depends on the issue at hand.

When nothing goes right, go left!

You are most welcome. I hope that horrible reaction to your comment will not leave you with a bad opinion of Christians. We are not all like that.

Thank you for the reference to Ludovici, I like that. When you struggle with your faith and question the things you were raised to believe, it can be very difficult, to say the least. I have been on my journey to knowledge and understanding for a long time. Answers are not easy to come by.

Not just no, but Hell No! Even without the prophetic implications, it would be a total invasion of privacy. We are all human and we will all make mistakes, at some point.

Even if they said they only wanted to monitor people for signs of terroristic activity or major criminal activity (i.e. rape, murder or armed robbery), eventually that would be extended by Big Brother. They may decide that they would like to use it for other purposes that I don't even want to consider. Just the thought makes me extremely paranoid and I'm not naturally inclined to have paranoid delusions. Big Brother can mind their own business!

Oh, that was very Christian of you. Have you even read the teachings of Christ? By your response, I would say no. Please start reading, you have a lot of studying to do.

About Me


"I am a mother of two and I work a full-time job. I live in a very small town where debate often leads to very nasty personal attacks. It sucks to see someone resort to that when they have no logical points to argue. I don't claim to know everything. It would be great if I knew half of everything! I enjoy debate and considering the validity of opposing views. I may agree and alter my own view. The again, I may agree to disagree. Either way, no hard feelings!"
