    The bias with which people bring to life, I think speaks to something much deeper than their political beliefs. I think it speaks volumes about their education and their parental rearing. On the one hand, you've got people who you say claim that they won't vote for a Muslim. Yet, these vary same people seem to have no problem whatsoever, voting for someone who is actively seeking to become a god.

    The implication in saying one won't vote for a Muslim, is that there is something wrong with Islamic beliefs. Yet, these very same people seem to drop any attempt at making the same implication when it comes to supporting one who honestly beliefs that his life on this planet, is one of the stages to becoming a god.

    I find this willful stratification of one's own personal beliefs about what's supportable and what's not supportable, to be an amazing contradiction. But, of course, that's what we love to do as human beings is it not - contradict ourselves into oblivion.

    In other words, its "OK" to support someone seeking to become a god, but not "OK" to support someone who follows Mohammad. Now, I personally belief that both views are wrong and have no real historical basis for being true. When you study both Mormonism and Islam, you find glaring contradictions in both their doctrines and not just logical contradictions but, but historical and archaeological contradictions as well.

    Still, the idea that someone would not take the time to understand the beliefs of the candidate they support, yet be in full opposition to another based upon -guess what- their beliefs, is strikingly hypocritical to me.

    No, of course not. The U.S. Constitution is not in danger as a result of any threat of instantiation of Sharia Law.

    Absolutely not, sharia law is in direct contradiction to the U.S. Constitution. The only way it could happen is if things fell apart to such a degree that this would functionally no longer be the United States.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If you would've added gravy to the mashed potatoes, I would've been compelled to go that route.

    Man, you should read the articles you link to:

    Although Islamís detractors suggest that "creeping sharia," left unchecked, will undermine U.S. freedoms, Feldman says that these laws play on fears of a problem that does not exist.

    "The Constitution of the United States, and the constitution of every state -- that is 51 constitutions -- already make it illegal to implement Islamic law,Ē said Feldman. ďJust as Jewish law canít be the law of the United States, and canon law canít be the law of the United States, shariah law canít be the law of the United States."

    "Itís like a law that says we absolutely ban alligators on the South Pole," he said

    Yes, one can remain as ignorant and paranoid and bigotted as one likes. One can eschew the constitution because of one's xenophobia, but saner heads shall prevail.

    I used ignorant in the manner of uninformed... not as an insult.

    Look, if you want to get personal we can but it only shows that you lack character to have said what you have said.

    Now, I read their opinions... and that is what they are... opinions. Also, you are completely taking what I have been saying out of context. Reading comprehension has been a problem for many of our newer members lately... think what you will. I am done with your silliness.

    There are any number of reasons to not support a political candidate and their stance on religion is no different than anything else because it shows a mindset. It has nothing to do with hypocrosy. Sorry...
