Capitalism isn't killing our country. You're equating cronyism with capitalism.

First of all, that doesn't refute my point that Christ wouldn't be a fan of communism. Secondly, he wasn't even guilty of a crime so that also doesn't prove anything. Nice effort, though.

Christ was never a big fan of government in the Bible. All the good and others did was on their own accord.

How exactly would you quantify it? "Well he made me wrinkle my nose and take three steps away..."

Wow we're really answering the tough questions here, I see...

So you're trying to use logic to disprove an illogical trait? Let me know how that works out.

If you acknowledge God as one who can do anything (including the illogical), it doesn't make any sense to pit logical constraints on Him. On the flip side, if you're going to argue that God can do anything within the constraints of logic, then your argument still doesn't hold, as it wouldn't be possible for there to be a rock that God can't lift (being all-powerful).

He didn't, he demonstrated an entirely different issue.

It's literally the same situation, just flipped. I don't know about you, but flipping situations is one of the best ways to gain perspective.

My point is that he dismissed the initial, larger issue in a way that undermined the severity of it.

I mean, you can interpret it however you want, but the fact is that he never explicitly dismissed the issue.

I have already explained how he did that: He literally dismissed the initial topic by deflecting to a different one.

Well your explanation is not a great one. If someone starts a debate about one group committing violence against another, it's pretty ridiculous to think the opposite won't or shouldn't be brought up.

I would gladly engage in an alternate discussion on his topic, but nice try.

Apparently not. The only thing you've done is insisted that it shouldn't be discussed since it's not as large of an issue (which is a fallacy by the way).

1 point

He drew attention from the issue brought up and onto a different issue.

So? A lot of insight can be gained by demonstrating that the problem is more complex than OP made it.

The initial issue brought up is larger, both proportionally and as a sum, than the one he brought up.

I'm not going to argue against that and he didn't either. What's your point exactly?

I have never dismissed police shootings. But he has dismissed the shootings of black Americans.

Show me where he did that.

This "One or the other" bullshit is completely nonsensical.

You're the one propagating that by shutting down any alternate discussions.

That isn't what he said. To simply dismiss this dangerous trend of officers being shot is foolish.

1 point

I don't think so. There's no pain and it's better than having it later in life. Plus there are restoration processes available.

1 point

It doesn't take a genius to point out America's problems, but it takes a idiot to offer some of the solutions he has. He's racist, sexist, arrogant, stubborn (in a bad, unhelpful way), and manipulative. He doesn't even want to be president, he's just sabotaging politics and ensuring that the Republicans have zero chances of taking the presidency.

Sure, it certainly isn't for everyone.

Clearly not abstinent lol

What are you smoking? Nobody can even come close to Aaron Rodgers.

1 point

You do know that abstinence can't result in an abortion, right?

This is a bit like saying people who actively want to curb car emissions should focus more on killing cows, since their burps and farts contribute heavily to greenhouse gases.

1 point

I don't think that's true at all. I guess I can't speak for all pro-lifers but I think it's a huge stretch to say that they don't want to teach safe sex.

1 point

Are you kidding me? Since when do conservative Christians support promiscuity?

1 point

You're saying pro-life don't care about sex? Ho-kay...

1 point

It also costs more to send criminals to prison? Screw illegality, it's all about savings some bucks. I see you.

1 point

What? Who is this "they" you're talking about?

1 point

Pro-life people don't care about the poor decisions that lead to the unwanted pregnancy

That seems awfully backwards.

Well I mean sure, but obviously the sheer decrease in the magnitude of punishment would obviously weaken morality.

1 point

Yes, but in a less absolute extent. With no eternity involved, morality becomes relatively less important.
