    As to corporations and their powers - that is the struggle of this century. The corporations versus the people. We see what side you have come down on. I will stand with the people.
    So the choice is between bloated government and anarchy? Limited government, as proposed through the Founding Fathers, is not in play anymore?

Christians wouldn't want secular progressives moving into the neighborhood and bring Satan with them either so big deal. But you added those other two under the Secular Progressive option for what reason? It's not even a realistic scenario. Why would all races be included EXCEPT whites?
    You are confusing the issues again. The influence of religion in America is not in the writing of our laws. It is in shaping the conduct of our citizens.

    Nice way to rehash that you must be correct in every instance.
    Whatever youve done willingly to your own mind is intellectual suicide.

We have public behavior today which would have been so scandalous 50 or 60 years ago that the person would have had to go into hiding and change their name. Not now.

    Everyone is free to make their own assessments and conclusions as to whether or not religious influence in public life is good or bad, and whether it is good with one religion and not another. But I don't think their can be any doubt that religion is much more effective at shaping positive public morals than secularism.

    Why are we looking at unemployment in terms of race? What is the point?

    The real difference in politics now, as opposed to then, isn't that politicians were more moral back in the day. The real difference is that the press today publishes all of the dirt that used to get passed over with a wink and a nod.

    btw - the next time you speak with those three men could you please ask about those stupid three cornered hats and find out what was up with them?

    Are cliches and hollow bumper sticker slogans now back in fashion?

    Given the choice between a quasi-Christian society vs. one with no moral or ethical structure vs. one based on any other religion ...would you give, the nod to the quasi-Christian society?

    Why or why not?
