  •  I think this is the most (4.00)
    important story of the day. Someone upthread said this is about extremism and they are 100% correct.

    The one line that popped a blood vessle for me when I read this first thing this morning was:

    They learn to view every vote as a religious duty, and to consider compromise a sin

    That is such an extremist view that it makes me sick. "To consider compromise a sin" yo have to believe the founding fathers and ideals of this country are sinful. If there was ever an "unAmerican" belief, that is it. And it needs to be shown far and wide for exactly what it is. An extremist longing for a theocratic government that will force everyone in this country to follow one religion and all laws are to be taken from that religion's rule book.

    This is their agenda, far more pernicious than the "Gay Agenda's" supposed destructive power.

    I have been a born again. I have seen their desire to rule every aspect of people's lives first hand.  If the silence continues and they are able to get both feet in the door then it will take decades for us to undue the damage they will have done to this country, if it can even be undone.

    This must be exposed for what it is. It is the Randal Terry vision for the United States.

    "I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you... I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism."

    and

    "When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we'll execute you. I mean every word of it." He added, "I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed."  "

    And it is the end of the experiment started over 230 years ago. I do not believe this is hyperbol, it is what they have been fighting hardest for for the last few decades if not since the inception of our county.

    •  Sad but true... (none)
      I was brought up in a fundamentalist, Pentacostal Bible-belivin' Assmembly of God church.  My view of the experience now is that I was indoctrinated into nothing less than a pathological doomsday cult.  
          These people are NOT religious.  They are members of one of the worst doomsday cults to ever plague the minds of men.
          "Well, it's all just a question of faith." is the familiar, built-in reflex retort I get whenever I confront my family on any of the inconsistencies of their worldview.  They are unreachable.  
          They are religious materialists who reject the material universe.  One of their sorry maifestos in the famous ID "Wedge Document" in which they claim as their goal not the objective pursuit of truth, the goal of any real science, but the 'overthrow of the materialistic worldview'.  

          To this I have to ask... WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH MATTER?  
          What the hell is these people's problem with the material universe...?  Is it not enough for them?  I mean, astronomers have peered into the depths of the cosmos, and what did they find there?  Matter. Not one angel, not one devil and not one intelligent designer. Unless you count the grand totality as a vast, creative intelligence.
          The grand scale of the totality of the cosmos is utterly indifferent to their pathetic little pixies, fairies and invisibe grandfathers. And I think that's their problem.  Does anyone seriously believe that the Biblical worldview has any meaning whatsoever in a universe of supernovas, quasars and such mind warping structures as the Eagle nebula...?

      Eagle Nebula Facts

      Did any intelligence design those things? Perhaps, if one can consider the physical laws of nature an intelligence...
      And why would it care if two males of the same species had sex?  Or decided to get married?  Human laws are made for and by humans.
