Jesus, God, one in the same for Christianity.

Guff, I agree except that for christians it's more than a belief in god, it's also a belief that the man jesus was divine and an acceptance of him as savior.

People sometimes say "What would jesus do?" I don't think he'd want to take credit for the USA based on how we have treated the disadvantaged throughout our history and particularly in recent times.

Christianity is NOT a religion, it is a principle.

As many people have been persecuted and abused in the name of Christ as in Sharia. A better approach would be to totally exclude religion from the public sphere. Let people observe and practice whatever they wish as long as it doesn't hurt others. Let them be set up as any other non-profit and adhere to the same rules. Religion is not needed for moral behavior and in fact has a pretty pooor record in that regard.

Which christian principles were those fish, extermination of native Americans or enslavement of Africans? That's not a knock on Christians, a true Christian wouldn't do those things but it shines light on the nonsense that we are a christian nation.

Well i thought it was well written, that`s why we need to keep our freedoms, I have a right to my opinion, how long before they want to control that too?

Guff, Mr. Lashway's article is well articulated but not well written. Too much nonsense for that. He has as much right to interpret Huckabee's comments as does Bryjak and points out that neither are theologians but then again neither is Huckabee.

It's not christian bashing to point out that we don't act much like the so-called christian nation some claim we are.

"gun industry revenues, which have no bearing on gun violence." Really? The number of guns floating around has no bearing on gun violence? Absurd to say he least.

"Maybe he was equating the industry with drug dealers trying to push their products onto children." If so i'd say it's a good analogy when we see ads like the one I saw recently telling men to reclaim their masculinity by purchasing a Bushmaster assault weapon. The difference is gun manufacturers are targeting adults who think like children.

ltc, I agree, deregulation of the financial industry was a radical step for which we are all paying dearly. All of us except the banksters that is.

Yah the jury can decide Zimmerman's fate but Martin's already been decided by a guy with more firepower than brains.

Yes but as I said he wasn't protecting his home or even his "things". Any extra "rights" a homeowner has beyond those of a non-homeowner end at their property line. Martin was in public space with every bit as much right to be there as Zimmerman. As I said, take the gun out of that situation and no one would have been hurt.

Yes. Homeowners should and do have more rights and things to protect.

II, What's "homeowner" Zimmerman have to do with anything? He wasn't in his home, his yard or even in front of his home. Are you implying that homeowners have rights that renters or homeless people don't have?

Only a coward of the worst sort sees an unarmed man walking away as a threat. Cowards are the last people we want walking around armed. If Zimmerman had been unarmed no confrontation would have occurred and neither man would have been harmed.

Oh you mean the thug that the homeowner George Zimmerman was protecting his property and neighborhood against? The thug got what he deserved.

liberals are getting what they want, they are just too steeped in their own narcissism that they don`t realize that liberals will be the first to be singled out in a Govt controlled by a would be dictator. Ancient Rome all over again.

Duprey says that this law also forbids inheritance of lawful weapons to qualified family members. Not only are they trying to eliminate rights guaranteed under the second amendment, this is a clear violation of American's fifth amendment rights,"nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law".

Now here is a question for all of you: How is this seven round law going to be enforced when many people (men and women) own magazines with a larger capacity than seven rounds? You tell me. What about carbines that have ten rounds? What about lever action rifles that have a capacity of 8 rounds? i.e. Marlins and Winchesters. When do the Troopers start coming to your door? Not one of you have an answer.
