He's from Arizona so he knows nothing about the vital importance of salt on roads in the winter. Road salt saves lives.

Sand is better, Music, like we had in Alaska. It doesn't rust the cars undercarriage.

"Perpetually increasing safety nets also remove the incentive to help the poor."

Umm ... so we should remove safety nets and make sure there is plenty of suffering among the poor to give Christians more incentive to step up to the plate?

Modern safety nets are the result of living in a more complicated and urban society. The first kids to leave the farm and go to the cities mostly had a place to crawl back to. Today that isn't the case. It would be a national shame to not have some safety nets in place. One can argue about how they should work and make adjustments. One can face the stark cold reality of budgets and try to make them more efficient. But to just not have safety nets?

Just look at many of these modern mega-churches. How much goes into this and how much is wasted having fun things in their youth programs so kids can listen to Christian-rappers and smash watermelons or putting on kewl shows for seeker-types. I'm going with the professional approach to safety nets but God bless the Churches who really do help fill in the gaps the govt programs don't cover.

They can be repaired or rebuilt, people can't.

Mrs. Exp., I really shouldn't speak for Kathleen, but when I use He/She/It/Them, I'm saying God has no gender, and is all genders, or is the source of all genders. I would never say "He" when speaking of Spirit.

Music,
And salt make cars to rust. I paid plenty for rust protection in Michaigan and not long ago I had to have a major repair on my brakes because of rust.

He was not being very nice.
Jesus said:
Matthew 5:13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men."

Nancy Davison,
Thank you for that explanation. I think so differently from you that I would never have thought that.

Craig says:
Genesis 1:27 says God created man(human race) in His image, male and female He created them. Do you think God has one specific gender? and why would you think that? I know the bible uses words like "He" and "Father" but I think those are terms are used to help us humans rather than being technically correct. Just my thoughts on the matter.

Salt rotted bridges kill people. A bridge failure on I-35 over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis killed 13 people and injured 145; the failure was caused by salt corrosion of the steel reinforcing members and freeze-thaw cycling.

Craig,
Actually no. I call God He, Jesus is a He, but God I don't think he has a gender but who knows.

i don't think so Anne. Take a look at the demographic of this just concluded elections. Most white evangelicals voted for romney. to me that indicates that this extremism will continue on.
