    I don't know about Manning. The guy had a serious injury. He did so much for the Colts and Indianapolis. I hope he can. I just don't see how.

    I most certainly am an atheist and you have no standing to say I'm not. And, I was born and raised in the U.S. and moved to Mexico when I retired. I don't know what "your" racial culture is but mine is as an American and my experience in that culture exceeds yours.

    Rev. Wright and his protege are racist and are socialists. Black Liberation Theology is racist and socialist.

    I wonder why your location is a secret. Actually, almost everything about you is a secret. Shame is a terrible burden. California? That would be embarrassing. Chicago? That would be pretty bad, too.

    "The things people say"....lol
    In the Bible, there are but several hundred words from Christ...
    "god" is for nothing, I cannot say he exists or he does not...
    TTBOMK, our "Mr Christ" established no church...even if he did...what kind of shape would it be in, after 2,000 years ?

    So you think we should vote for anti-colonialists like Obama?

    I love how "anti-colonialist" has suddenly become a dirty word on the bat**** fringe right. Are you saying you are pro-colonialism?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    As far as abortion goes, this is a much deeper issue, but it is obvious that Christ taught the sanctity of life. The question which will never be answered satisfactorily for either the pro-choice or pro-life crowds, is at what point life actually begins. Again, down this whole line of discussion lies madness......and that madness belongs in another forum.
    SSM is for more for legal equality then anything else. i fail to see why a christian would be against it.(even though many are)
    i mean its not like it would be a blessed union just a legally recognized one.

    Fluffy, if you believe that homosexuality is a "sin", then further discussion is a waste, much as a discussion between a fence post and a wall.

    I have read Matthew 19.....
    Not one word about SSM...rather "God does not like divorce" is the topic, among others.
    SSM is a more recent discussed phenomena.
    There is so much that the Bible does not even bring up...and for good reason.
    AS to "Christians" supporting President Obama, why not ??
    I find Mr Obama far closer to the teachings of Jesus than Mr Romney. For one, Jesus would have sympathy for the homosexual....as this is, in fact a type of disorder(IMO)

    "Anti-colonialist" ?
    Thats a new one, from the past, the dark, dingy, dirty past...
    Maybe, this is why (an indirect reason), President Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Claim all you want. Denying there is racism in this nation, that the Voting Rights act is fairly new, that schools were segregated and very different, that wages and jobs opportunities are as equal for blacks and whites as education is, is to reveal a non-understanding of the racial inequality in this country. To claim to KNOW that, and understand that, and then claim that Wight is a racist is just proving how removed you were from the very culture you deny.

    What does my revealing where i am have to do with my opinions? Oh, I see. As with blacks, you have preconceived notions about cities and states in the US.
