As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature.

    No. as a matter of fact, most of the Gay individuals I know are not part of the militant, agenda driven sect. These I consider the worst example for our children, trashing religion, the family unit and any other group that they consider a threat to their 'lifestyle'.

    That is of course where I started my participation in this thread.

    If adultery and murder are in the 10 commandments then why are not all adulterers and murderers banned from receiving the Holy Word?

    Seems selective.

    Still no idea who this Gawd fella is.

    Now as far as the word of GOD. Anyone can receive the word of God, nobody has said otherwise, some just deliberately choose to ignore it. (Gay, adulterer, liar, thieves, murderers, prostitutes, etc) Who has been selective?

    I am honestly curious about this and I appreciate you answering my questions.

    And what kind of behavior do you define as militant?
    What do they do when they "trash" the fam unit etc?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I'm not against science, I'm against the made up propaganda they label "science."

    Re: Pope Francis: Church can't 'interfere' with gays

    This pope is a true Christian leader who walks the walk and who realizes that the essence of Christianity is the positive message of hope and love in the gospel, not the fetishized denouncement of minorities that particular purported Christians (who probably are projecting) have.

    A Catholic church that goes back to its roots in helping the poor and preaching the good news of transformation through love will be a force for good in the world, after years of retrograde policies.
