Almost as much as he loves his $32 million salary. The value of bovine excrement has really risen lately.

I really like the part where he admits he's "angry and crazy".

If appropriate, I'd like to single out comments by Summer183 for their being both accurate & informative. Without being confrontational& malevalent.

As far as I'm concerned it's quite appropriate as well as accurate. Summer is one of our best posters.

We love our Summer.  She makes the world a much more pleasant place. Smile

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

Shalom Al-Fatihah,

Well let me start by first saying that the founding fathers were not Christians and that is often a bone of contention for many and many just can't accept that fact.

Response: The founding fathers were not christians? Then what were they?


They were Deists.

That is not strictly true.  Most of them were at least nominal members of some recognized Christian denomination.


The problem is, that as you can see, none of them belonged to a Christian denomination recognized as authentically Christian by those Christians who are trying now to make the US into a Christian nation.


Episcopalian/Anglican 88 54.7%
Presbyterian 30 18.6%
Congregationalist 27 16.8%
Quaker 7 4.3%
Dutch Reformed/German Reformed 6 3.7%
Lutheran 5 3.1%
Catholic 3 1.9%
Huguenot 3 1.9%
Unitarian 3 1.9%
Methodist 2 1.2%
Calvinist 1 0.6%
TOTAL 204

In God's eyes there is no seperation of Church and State. The US Church rules the US, and the US rules the world as the 4th horseman.
