    Its odd that you dont recognize that politics is its own religion, and in the case of leftism a more destructive and bloody one.

    I think you might gain some insight from the video.
    Isn't Jesus a king? Couldn't you argue that European monarchies started with the spread of Catholicism?

    It wasn't until Europe started immersing in religious revolutions through science did the monarchs really start become questioned.

    The idea of God is the surrendering of your individuality to a king. I do think religion is beneficial in Building communities but for that very reason we need it away from politics

    Im not religious but Jesus was not an earthly king, and in any case is a lefty dictator better?

    And isn't politics a community? If not what is it?

    "Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" meaning Jesus will be the king of kings for a thousand years after revelations

    What religion does is build communities but also excludes other people when it is the main focus of politics. It's a double edged sword for individual liberty theory

    You are all over the place. Jesus as king is metaphorical-there isn't a local on earth where he is physically king.
    And politics dont exclude people? Conservatives are constantly told they are evil, racists, sexists, bigots, homophobes, etc by the left for its personal political benefit.

    So do tell, how do you reconcile that?

    Really would a Christian priest help a Buddhist before a Christian?

    I agree the Christians and consetvatives do have the worst wrap with MoDern society and I see the purpose for religion but it needs to be out of politics because it has a way to divide people on things that are out of humanities control

    I'd be surprised to see any clergy member ask anothers religion before helping them but thats a silly hypothetical. And in any case there are plenty of cliques within the left, with a much bloodier history.

    And once again, politics is its own religion.

    USCon comes to a forum where people on the left discuss how some actions are preferable to others. Most of which he constantly complains about. He questions whether the left 'exhibits' moral nihilism. Either he doesn't understand what the word 'exhibit' means or he's not sure what 'moral nihilism' means. In either case, he's proving that 25+ years of schooling won't buy you an ounce of critical thinking. He's not a serious poster, people. Why you guys get so bent out of shape by a poster who isn't serious is beyond me.

    I don't think you know what inflamed means.
