    Say, how do I know you are a genuine god lover?
    I'd say when you start shutting people down be concern, free expression and free speech
    and given equally to all, and as soon as you start taking it away you've crossed a line.
    The hate groups on college campuses that refuse to let speakers they disagree with
    have any say due to trying to prevent hate speech really don't grasp that they are doing
    the very thing they are protesting against, and acting on hate while doing it. The non
    tolerant will spew their hateful message, while protesting hateful messages.

    Protesting ideas and beliefs, to the point of saying parents shouldn't be allowed to raise
    their kids is pushing society into a dangerous place. If there are things that should be
    stopped then fine, but if you spread that net to wide of things you are for stopping, that
    net will get bigger and bigger as those in power become more powerful and less accountable.

    Amen to that, as long as the same freedoms are defended for both (edit: all) sides, which they are NOT.

    Trumpf vowed to destroy the law not allowing churches to support political candidates. So now he has.

    What is weird is there is little in the news about this digusting development, like it is not worth pursuing.

    I think it should be rung up the highest pole and rung out to all the land showing h ...[text shortened]... ation of the US has begun.

    If you think that is BS, you don't know the agenda of republicans.
    Yes I did but I was replying to JS.

    I don’t think you are BSing at all, I wanted some context rather than address your opinion about it. That’s all

    That should be the goal instead of favoring one point over another.

    Yes, but something you said made me think that you think people you label as “god lovers” should be the only ones allowed to define the limits of religious liberty and those labeled “god haters” should be excluded.

    So you will be 100% ok with the US becoming a theocracy, based on your CERTAINTY we are in end days in spite of the fact the end days card has been played for 2000 years or more with no end in sight for ANY of those prognostications. In spite of all that you still follow the company line. How many more generations of such pronouncements will it take before the scam is exposed?

    So, what if you are 100% wrong? Is that even possible in your lexicon?

    they cannot tell a boy from a girl, they know what is inside a woman isn't human!

    "Some are teaching kids they cannot tell the difference between boys and girls"

    So, who cares. Not really a problem is it.

    "Some are teaching kids its okay for a man to walk into a woman's bathroom."

    So, what's the big deal? Do these things really bother you???

    Some are teaching kids its normal to have sex, go for it to kids.

    It is natural to have sex, might as well educate the kids so they don't make mistakes. Not really a big problem is it?

    they cannot tell a boy from a girl, they know what is inside a woman isn't human


    It's their body, let them decide.

    No, and you didn't see that in anything I wrote unless you made it up between your ears.
    You are simply over reacting, and spewing your dislike to take something little and turn it
    into something big.

    Well it sounded like you were endorsing a theocracy or at least not objecting.

    But you also didn't respond to the main gib, that the prognostications have been going on for thousands of years and yet, no end game. The curious part is why you would persist in believing that after hundreds of years of scientific advancement dissing ONLY those sciences that refute the biblical tales like the plagiarized 7 day creation tale that started out as Egyptian and early Jews loved that story and made it their own.

    As a programming technique, it has worked fantastically well, billions of people fall for it.

    It’s more effective and less painful to deal with a threat to democracy before it gets entrenched, as we may be about to be schooled, yet again.

    As our rights are taken away and modified is where I am concerned much more than I am how old a fossil is thought to be. For crying out loud people are being jailed for collecting rain water falling on their homes and lands. There are more things to fear than religion at play here!

    You might think differently when ISIS comes knocking down your door.

    And there are people who'se profession it is to accurately date ancient fossils using all the science they can so for them it is very important dating the age of fossils. We don't have to worry much, not much connection to our daily lives but they want to figure out how things change over time. Gads, what's that called? Oh yeah, Evolution. Evil stuff that, eh.
