Thread: America is a Christian Nation

  1. I do believe that many of the strong responses opposing this OP, is based at least partially upon the religionist habit of damning people to Hell, or blaming a non-affilliated group for the woes of the world.

    I take great umbrage being told, in a passive-aggressive manner that because I don't believe in a specific way, that I'm going to Hell.

    It makes me want to inquire of the person if they want to engage in a religious discussion, the loser of which will be promoted to martyr.

    If you quit trying to make others believe as you do by various intrusive methods, you'd face much less opposition.

A very significant political evolution was taking place in the New World. Unlike the Puritans in England who, of necessity, lived under English common law and were ruled by a King and Parliament, the Puritans of America had no central authority or national governing body. Yet, they did not lapse into anarchy. Instead, they created communities governed by elected councils of elders similar to the “presbyters” of England. Their communities were both stable and prosperous, with mandatory school systems modeled after the Jewish ones.
    They also banned the celebration of christmas and hung Quakers. Are those the principals you think our country was founded upon?

    No religionist (sic) or Christian can damn you to Hell. Only God can do that at the Great Throne Judgment. And, just because you don't believe, doesn't mean you are safe.

    lol...did Dr. Dino make that video before he went to prison?

  7. You obviously did not even watch the video, because it is about 60 minutes long and you responded back to my post in about 15 minutes. You are a fraud. So go back and watch the video dufus.

    It doesn't take more than 5 minutes to realize it is a load of crap nonsense. The Big Bang Theory sitcom has more real science in a half hour show than that flushable video has in 60 minutes.

    Don't need to watch it, it's based biblical inerrancy, which even most christians don't believe.


    Walt Disney and religions have been very successful with their constant mantra of "fairy tales can come true", and yet it is just a ploy to control people and make money.

    But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.” ― Steven Weinberg

    NO the Christian Bible has an Old Covenant and a New Covenant.
    The information I posted came from a Jewish web site. I thought it backed up very well that this country was founder on Biblical principles.
    And in a later post with clip, Obama stated the same.
    So it seems we have Christians, Jews, Obummer and some atheist all agreeing this country was founded on Biblical principles.

    I ask again, are you referring to the Biblical principles that banned the celebration of Christmas and hung Quakers? Or are you a have-it-yahweh historian who picks and chooses the history that is relevant to your argument?
