    There was not torture there. And that was old Testament and not the teachings of Jesus.

    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.

    Yep, but he didn't torture anyone. And again, old Testament. Before the new deal.

    Do you believe humanity should subject people to the same principles as God? As in should humanity be the judge or god

    Yeah, but I sure as hell am not going to take some atheist quoting scripture to me as a stifle tactic to debate. You shouldn't either...But, I'll hand it to ya, as usual, demo's are very good at catch phrases, and slogans, even if they are dishonest crap.

    That's not a 'catch phrase' whatever you mean by that.

    Who Would Jesus Torture is a valid question. What is dishonest about that, in your view? What makes it dishonest to ponder that question?

    Don't get me wrong--I lost my religion decades ago, so this is simply a polemical consideration for me.

    Who would Jesus torture? Only muslims?

    Would Jesus torture at all?

    My bet is that your objection is that the question reveals the moral vacuum that is your present position on this issue.

    Jesus was the human manifestation of God on earth. We as Christians strive to be more like him but as humans fall short. To use that as a benchmark in judging me, or anyone else is the epitome of dishonest. Especially when you have declared you don't believe in him anyway.

    Hollow words from a hollow shell of a man.
