People who believe in their own supremacy rather than that of a higher being are far more capable of acts of sadism and horror

That's worthy of a bump and a repeat.

A canuck that gets it.
They'll be deported, soon.

Looks like a canuck that would be welcome here in Dixie.

Now if Bush will just state that he's going to seal our borders and deport the illegals.

"People who believe in their own supremacy rather than that of a higher being are far more capable of acts of sadism and horror...Yes, I know that religious people have committed terrible crimes down the ages, but they have done so in spite of, and in contradiction to, their beliefs."

What about Osama bin Laden? His actions have NOT been in contradiction to his beliefs. As unfashionable as it is to say, what he's doing is firmly rooted in Islamist law. He is not simply "misinterpreting" or "distorting" his religion. No one wants to admit that.

Now I agree that I want my president to be a Christian. But there are Democrats who believe in a higher power -- as in, almost everyone who attends my church. They're not just poseurs: they believe in Christ and they are Democrats. But I think they're utterly wrong.

At the same time, some Republicans who make a show of being Christian ARE poseurs. Not most, in my opinion, but some. And I admit I have a hard time knowing what's sincere and what isn't.

For these reasons, the real litmus test for me is whether I agree with the leader's policies. Is the person a true conservative?

Repeating.

Amen to that, however are you all missing the point of this article? The author of the article starts out by praising the President for his stand on God and Christianity and than suddenly takes a turn and talks about women in the armed services and feminism in general.

Good article, except for this this line: "Atheists have no such moral compass and may act according to will and whim."

Indeed, some atheists have no moral compass. But it's grossly unfair to state that all atheists are without moral direction simply because they don't believe in a supreme being.

It's really very simple. The day women as front-line soldiers die to defend any country is the day that country is no longer worth defending.

a pretty broad statement but like in the old west I can picture women picking up the old flintlock and wasting a few aggressors.

If almost everyone who attends your church is still a democrat, I'm pretty sure you're going to the wrong church.

In my church there used to be a guy who had a demo bumper-sticker on his car -- But then he and his wife got divorced. She got a different car and he stopped coming.

I have to admit it. U.S. President George Bush is beginning to grow on me.

Mr. Coren, what took you so long - what blinded you?

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. Are you suggesting that his views on women in the military are wrong?

As a former military officer, who served both before and after Clinton and the radical feminists changed the law, I can attest that women most definitely do NOT belong in combatant units.

"People who believe in their own supremacy rather than that of a higher being are far more capable of acts of sadism and horror. Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot, among others, have taught us that."


This is a quote for the centuries.
