    If you had followed the thread you would have seen that I said that Saudi Arabia wanted the U.S. to topple Assad. Israel does not appear to want the U.S. to have a nuclear deal with Iran. The people of the U.S. did not elect Obama to cater to Saudi Arabia or Israel.

    I don't have to read it again. Something else for you. There were some people who wanted to use rhetoric to trap Jesus. Jesus told them that deceit has it's origins in the devil. The problem is that you appear to want my words to mean something other than what they mean for the sake of advancing some political position. What I said is the truth. Anger can be used to serve God. Jesus became very angry and indeed did use violence when he saw that the Temple of God was being used for something other than the glorification of God. The difference in Jesus, and people who are bewildered by mundane things, including political power, is that Jesus was motivated by love of God. Mundane people who are bewildered by mundane things do not have such love of God, and as such their motivation is not pure. Therefore such persons should not try to imitate Jesus, but rather follow his instructions.

    Nope. My reading of what you said is not unique. I have asked you to clarify your point several times now, assuming my reading of it is flawed, and you refuse to clarify. This appears to be because you know that everyone read your statement correctly and you know any backtracking now would be measured against what you actually said. It's a common debate tactic by people who paint themselves into a corner and it always amazes me that people can fool themselves into believing it is effective.

    Stop digging your hole.

    15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
    16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”
    Translation of the King James version
    15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
    16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

    So do you think Jesus taught that marriage should also be between two males? Why did he never mention that?

    That said

    14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
    15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
    16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”

    I know what I said. I know what I meant. You can keep trying, but the truth is on my side.

    This discussion illustrates well why religion should be left out of politics. People who are bewildered by mundane things simply cannot understand such concepts properly without proper guidance. Therefore it should be left out of politics.

    Re: Obama condemns those who seek to 'hijack religion'

    Yeah, this stuff has been going on for quite a while. Amazing.

    13 Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch him in his words.
    14 They came to him and said, “Teacher, we know that you are a man of integrity. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not?
    15 Should we pay or shouldn’t we?”

    But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. “Why are you trying to trap me?” he asked. “Bring me a denarius and let me look at it.” 16 They brought the coin, and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?”

    “Caesar’s,” they replied.

    17 Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.”

    And they were amazed at him.
