Doc, try to wrap your head around the fact that government is the mechanism we use to, um, GOVERN ourselves in a civil society.

Doc,

Why not try to govern yourself with some reason?

What, specifically, do you mean by "Religious Right"?

What a difference a day makes; from that article "A day after his reelection triumph, President Obama returned to Washington on Wednesday to find top Republicans suddenly offering olive branches and talking about compromise." This "compromise" includes higher taxes.

Doc,

Don't take this the wrong way but.... an old dead Jew is your reason?

I find your proposed 'reason' to be impossible and ridiculous.

Kitties,

Do you base that on any reality or merely just your hopes?... Opps, sorry, I forgot that your hopes are your realities.

no, people who espouse such ideas are being disingenuous and duplicitous. studies have shown they are not interested in helping the poor or the disenfranchised. this is just hot air that is spewed to make them seem less heinous. how much is enough? i get paid well into 6 figures and my effective tax rate has never been over 13%. could i pay more taxes? absolutely. would i mind paying more? Absolutely not? Why do some Christians get so caught up with money. Isn't God supposed to be faithful and take care of them?

glad that you say that. because i think most relgious rightist are the scum of the earth that will go the way of the dinosaurs. studies have proved that they are the dumbest and most bigoted and xenophbic amongst us. such characterstics will only result in inbreeding and eventually extinction.

i have given this some further thought. i think the republican party must come to realize that if they wish to win general elections they will have to understand that there is a browning of the population and that extremism that exclude everybody but white folks is doomed to failure. People are generally conservative but not to the extremists level that the religious rightist have become.

Dead?
I have good news for you Boy: Jesus is alive and well and seated in majesty as the right hand of God. All judgment over Man and Earth has been entrusted to Him because of His victory. Even death itself must bow before Him.
Dead? No, Boy, very much alive!

"The Catholic Church has no opposition to natural birth control."

That reminds me of a joke I heard in good old Government sponsored sex education courtesy of our Public School system ....

Q - What do you call people who use the rhythm method?

JJB: The "religious right" is largely a myth. A random sample of self professing Christians nationwide will reveal a very wide range of opinions on the issues. Obviously, lots of Christians in Virginia, Ohio, NH, Colorado, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nevada voted for Obama. Obama successfully convinced them that a guy like Romney could only make money if he was a crook and a tax cheater. That is the particular brand of "extremism" that determined the outcome of this election, not this nonsense that only old white guys ever benefit from fiscal conservatism

Our tax rates are higher than yours and would be even higher, but we have a rental that loses money due to being unable to find renters on the market because of indoor marijuana grows. If we put the property on the market, it would probably be destroyed by marijuana growers, so we rent it only to those we know we can trust.

First of all Kathleen, please don't think I feel that way, I'm just trying to explain someone elses statement that you said you didn't understand.

Christians are supposed to be the salt of the earth. Salt flavors and is also a preservative. I think who ever it was originally that made the comment about the salt being tossed out, was implying that a Liberal Christian is one who's salt has lost it's flavor or usefulness. Again though, I do not agree with that.

It has been the belief of Jews and is the general tenor of the Bible. We will still be ourselves.

Craig says:
When the Sadducees questioned Jesus about the resurrection He indicated people will be like the Angels and will not marry. I don't believe there is gender in the spiritual realm. If there is it will be like we are both male and female, that is my opinion. I am a male by birth, but I know I am a very female human being, I was probably female in other lives.

M. Simonson says:
"When the Sadducees questioned Jesus about the resurrection He indicated people will be like the Angels and will not marry."

The passages sometimes used are the transfiguration in Matthew 17 where Moses and Elijah show up and are identifiable as Moses and Elijah. Also in reference is the resurrected body of Christ as an example and Christ is able to do some unusual things like in John 20 19-20.
Angels are not portrayed as ethereal spirits but seem to have angelic bodies. But having a body can also be viewed as having a limit to the presence and form as opposed to the all-present nature of God. In John 3:2 we are told "it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is".
So that one is often tied in with a picture of the resurrected body of Christ but seems to suggest we will see beyond current physical limits. We also have some passages referencing a "new body".

We have to be careful and respectful because this is one of God's mysteries but many think the sum of all those passages talk about a new but transformed bodily presence. The idea that spirits float around in ethereal near-nothingness comes from pagan ideas and not Judeo-Christian teachings.

Kathleen M. Pelley: Total taxes as a percent of income is NOT lower than the 1950's. Saying the same thing over and over again does not make it true. You cannot say you are concerned about the elderly and disabled today to such an extreme that you collapse the entire economy so that tomorrow's elderly and disabled die on the street. America has limited means so we have to provide limited entitlements.
