    For this reason God gave them up to passions of dishonor; for even their females exchanged the natural use for that which is contrary to nature, and likewise also the males, having left the natural use of the female, were inflamed by their lust for one another, males with males, committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error.

    Never the less, this is a church matter, and not something American justices ought to be espousing.
    Yep. It's better to keep religion out of politics

    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    Tough to do when the US President has made it a religious conflict. Though so far he has only been critical of one religion.

    That's a wild leap. No that isn't what I said. Closed minded fear mongering is a problem. Radicals are a problem. Not religion itself.

    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.

    he has a long way to go to catch Bush, but I said every leader should speak the truth. Do you agree or not?

    Don't work out, work in.

    Oh I dont know.

    Left wing false narrative about " lies " over WMD doesn't really compare with 2 years of telling people they could keep their doctor and their plan. One is a manufactured accusation and the other was used to pass a horrible law that's having a substantial negative impact on the economy and the pocket books of middle class Americans.

    Oh dear, struck a nerve. Is there something wrong with that. And why couldn't he have been, supposing the individual ever even existed.

    Yes, because everybody knows that republicans value their money over life (unless a president wants it for war) Yep yep. Middle Eastern wars claiming the lives of 2-300,000 civilians, 5-6,000 US service personnel lives, and a couple trillion dollars, just a sneeze.
