It was the reason people settled in this country and organized governments. The three biggest principles this country were found on were freedom of religion, freedom of speech and government free of tyranny. Sorry but mixing religion and politics is as American as apple pie. Only an atheist, liberal or socialist would want it any different. If you want it that way move to Russia!! . You don't want politics and religion mixed. I guess your not cheering today about the assault our president is helping make on the baby killers of this country. Thank you governor Ivey for having the balls to mix religion and politics. Seems the residents of AL, MO and new states every day are standing up and saying they WANT religion in there politics.
Lloyd, over the course of this 260 post thread I have come to the exact same conclusion. You nailed it man!

Ignore and don't feed the Trolls. I will try to do a better job of deleting posts that are OT. I don't read them all.

Use the "!" in the gray triangle under your icon to bring Moderator attention to posts that deserve closer scrutiny. GB, I, and others will look. Decision will be made. Even "Do Nothing" is a decision.
Ain't much of a reporter, if I was you'd be busy all the time.
I'm honestly not offended by others, although they think i am.

This site is supposed to be, and is, "entertainment". At least for me it is.

The Michigan Meltdown has flashbacks from his alter boy days and priest encounters and he becomes agitated but, that has gone on for years, so its expected, and can be interesting, even comical with his great efforts to insult.
That I bother him is obvious, and do so without any real effort, is also obvious.
His goat is gone and he thinks I have it, but if he looked through that very thin skin of his it was there all along.
I expect nothing less from him.

Orwell said that when we canít say something with precision out thoughts arenít precise. One of the ancient philosophers observed that the mark of an educated mind is that it can consider both sides of an issue without fear of embracing the opposite belief.

We live in an era that demonstrates several decades if not a couple of generations of a general decline of depth of thought about any subject. The end result is emotional responses and emotional argument to support a point or platform.

Is this the reason that the line between politics and religion is constantly blurred?

Fundamentalism: The sneaking suspicion that somewhere, someone, might be having fun.

Itís a far more holy act to serve the neighbor than to focus on how holy your belly button is. Literally and figuratively.

Lloyd - I don't judge. I don't look over the pedigree of the posters here. I get to know them through their posts.

I don't care that Dee is a Mod on the Religion Forum. If he is, I didn't know that. I don't post or read there. That Forum isn't important to me. If it is to you and Dee - have at it.

Dee has made a point here in this Forum. He posted an opinion that started this thread. Every Member, Guest, and Moderator does the same thing in every thread and response post. He's getting a rant off his chest - so to speak.

Roll with it...and I ask those on this thread to periodically go to the OP and see what it is we're talking about to get back OT.

If someone posts on here where thier faith, and their political views intersect, where is the injury to another, or damage to anothers property?
If i walk into your house uninvited plop down couch and change the channel on the tv you happen to be watching no injury has occured and no property has been damaged but i bet i am more than halfway to getting my butt kicked out the door!

Good point CR, but trespassing is a property issue

I don't think so, but I do get your point.

I think it's an inability to isolate topics. Or, an inability to focus.

Moral opinion, and courtesy, is common among many atheists. Not all, but many.

I am, as you, a Christian, but I dont need to be putting it in front of you to win a discussion whose origin is politic.
Your "moral common sense" should serve you well enough.
You and I most likely disagree far less in politics than in religion.

No property damage was done! Was it right for me to do so?

Sandhillbilly,


When it comes right down to it you have the right to determine what the rules are in your house. You also have the right to expect people to abide by them.


Bill created GBO and he put the rules in place. Is it unreasonable to expect people to adhere to them?

I would wonder how much in $ a broken rule generates? Just curious. And I think we all know that GBO does have boundaries that we canít cross. And we all have our pet peeves, so rant a bit and then let it drop is sometimes a wise course of action.

I think some are looking at the "letter of the law" instead of the "spirit of the law". Maybe GB needs to chime in, but I imagine the rule was to keep from preaching on this forum. Mentioning God or your beliefs isn't exactly preaching. Explaining your position via religion isn't preaching.


Sure hope these "letter of the law" folks never become judges. Because when the laws are unreasonable, or do not make sense in certain case, you are going to jail anyway. No room for interpretation.
