  • @halo07guy2 So you’re saying the only commandments are the 10 commandments. Gee, that’s wonderful.

  • @majinish It’s true. It doesn’t cover rape, fraud, slavery, civil rights, etc. It only says don’t kill, steal, or lie. And to be honest, all of those concepts in civilizations predate the Bible by centuries. Ever heard of the Code of Hammurabi? Predates the Bible by almost 2000 years,and the Torah by almost 500 years. It has many of the same rules and punishments, and is in many ways much more specific, with a total of 282 laws. The Ten Commandments are too vague and limited to be a legal base.

  • Yes the Founders de-clawed and de-fanged Organized Religion so that it could not be that other hand of tyranny around the people’s throats, pockets and liberties.
    Furthermore, it would be just as offensive to label our country a ‘Christian Nation’ as it would be to call it a ‘White Nation’.

  • @halo07guy2 Nope.

  • @JESUStheATHEIST1 Jesus loves you, it’s your personal decision to love him back or not. I know personal responsibility is not a high priority with many American’s these days, the choice is yours and only yours.

  • @majinish The Ten Commandments say nothing about adultery, and half of them essentially say “don’t worship any god other than the christian one”. As well as saying that you can’t have graven images (ala drawings of Muhammad) of God or Jesus. And one simply has to do with jealousy.

    Really, the only ones truly applicable are “Thou shalt not kill”, “thou shalt not bare false witness”, and “thou shalt not steal”, a very weak basis for a legal system, don’t you agree?

  • @songwriter4artists Except that nowhere in the N.T. does it say that Jesus (Who is also God, and therefor his own son) repeals the acts of the O.t. He actually says that he has come to enforce them.

    And by the way, the Bible also says that Christians should kill non-believers. As well as saying that slavery is okay and women are property. And don’t even get me started on the genocides of Joshua.

    @djda99 BRAVO! a very common atheist tactic, refer to the O.T. of the bible to speak evil of the Almighty, especially by people who don’t understand the bible’s teachings whatsoever. All you atheist know how to do is look at a text and form an opinion without any relation to context. Have you ever thought about what would of happened if God allowed the Egyptians to keep His people in slavery? No you didn’t, because you’re so busy doing what a fundi atheist does, being the croonie you are. study.

  • @songwriter4artists My type of mindset is worse than a “godly” one? Excuse me, didn’t “god” murder the entire human population, besides Noah’s family, in the Noah’s arc story? That’s godly for ya, and If that kind of mind set is what you think is ‘good’, then Hitler must have been a saint in your eyes.

  • @majinish

    There are also laws against killing, stealing, and adultery in cultures not even remotely based on Christianity. Many other cultures (ex. China) had mandatory days of rest as well. None of this is inherently or uniquely Christian. These are pretty much rules that are necessary for most civilizations to survive.

    @songwriter4artists It also teaches about how babies are born sinful, and that unless they worship a God that they cannot yet acknowledge, they will burn for eternity.

    Christianity is one of the sickest, most demented religions out there, and no amount of lying will hide that fact.

    @majinish Oh really? I must have missed the laws where our government won’t allow us to grow two different crops side by side. Or how football on Sundays is illegal, since we cannot touch a dead pig’s skin on the sabbath.

    I also forgot about the federal laws which command killing homosexuals, stoning disobedient children, and forcing rape victims to marry their attackers.

    Oh wait. Maybe I don’t remember those laws because the Bible has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with our federal laws.


  • @songwriter4artists That’s some real funny shit…

  • @songwriter4artists lol you’re lost and brainwashed. So god wants people to be of Muslim, Christian, Paganism, Catholicism, Islamic, Judaism and many many others… we are born agnostic, and the free people will keep it that way.

    “they must find it difficult …. those who have taken authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority”

    @schupy81 Well, we can’t say Islam, their commands according to their Allah is to kill off infidels. We can’t say Catholic, the priest puts himself in the place of God. We can”t say Mormonism, their God was not always God, but was a man who became God. We can’t say Calvanists, according to them, God’s salvation was not for the entire world. We can’t say hate groups, they hate. However, we can say Christianity. It teaches Christ and his salvation and love for all.

    @JESUStheATHEIST1 No, Palin is a good, earnest, hardworking intelligent woman. She’s also smart.

    @djda99″ …and God knows that on the day that you eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, your eyes will be opened. And you will see as God sees…” and what you see, and everybody else sees is all the corruption and ungodliness of unbelief (atheism), which could have been avoided, and a lot of things could have been avoided if we chose to live Godly rather than follow your type of mindset.

  • Murder, stealing, adultery, and other things were made illegal the very first thing for a reason. Our laws derive from the Bible. The same thing people are trying to take out is where we get our basic laws from. Why do you think little stores in the old days were closed on Sundays? Keep the sabbath day holy. Our most basic laws come straight from the 10 commandments.

  • “never underestimate the wisdom of the people”
    funny, the republicans seem to do that a lot

  • VP OM NOM NOMS on church and state.

  • @OOPS4U2CNOW I’m guessing from your comment that you are Native American, like myself, in which case, they have taken most of the land. That is in the past and I can’t do anything about that. The most I can do is vote for the canidate that will work for the good of EVERY American, not just christians. That is my best response for your cryptic reply.

  • @Bittly how much dose the goverment own or should i say “TAKEN” from the states and us

  • @randyscorner In reality, revisionists like Steven Morris (and especially those from the Society of Separationists or the American Atheist Society) deliberately reverse Adams’s position. Not only did Adams declare that it would be “fanatical” to desire a world without religion (and that such a world would be “hell”), but on May 5, 1817, Jefferson wrote back to Adams and said that he agreed!

  • @romansten9 great reply can i use it ?
    it should be a daily reminder of what leftist are doing to our history

    thanks for saying it so well

  • @rokee1979 The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States of America
    Are intimately intertwine in that all the grievances stated in the Declaration are addressed in the Constitution,
