    Maybe that speaks more to the type of people you hang out with.

    Nope.

    Because when your "christian" leaders who preach things and then go out and get arrested for the same things they are telling you not to do, its obvious that they are just acting, in a church, which is their place of business.

    I don't like churches, Jesus said you didn't need to pray in public like the hypocrites, he was right.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    That's like saying all of the wedding rings being worn in the US right now is proof adultery doesn't happen.

    George Carlin once said the church was just a place for women to compare clothing

    No. Most Christians I know live very Christ-like lives....however those who are "Christian" for the most part are pre-occupied with pursuing their political agenda and proseltyzing their perverted version of "Christianity" and actually focus very little on the principles and example that Christ taught.

    I hear this statement a lot. If all the Christians are leading Christ-like lives, kinda makes me wonder where all the sin is coming from.

    Unless some of those Christians are lying......

    Probably from us non-Christian heathens.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Re-writing a post to take a jab is no less offensive than when some re-write the bible to fit their agenda. (Ie Sodom and Gomorah being destroyed because of gays)

    The post didn't come anywhere close to making a claim about "all" Christians.

    We're not a Christian nation.

    So on the very rare occasion Obama can speak the truth. That makes him an even more dangerous liar, doesn't it?

    More importantly, that's just meaningless poetry written more than a hundred years after the republic was founded.

    Most importantly of all, the poet that wrote that socialist pledge of allegiance didn't have those words in it. That was added by Congress in one of it's many many forays into violating the Constitution.
