I couldn't get through much of that thread.

The Federalist is a good website. It brings in more intelligent commenters than other websites.

However, it seems that intelligence just means people use bigger words, longer sentences, and more well-constructed paragraphs to say the same stupid shit they say at your typical Yahoo comments thread.

I feel like I have reached a new era of my "Conversion" from Left to Right.

When I started to identify myself as a Conservative, I felt that I had not changed, but that the Democrats had abandoned me.

I still feel like that to a large extent. HOwever, I must admit that I have become MORE Conservative with time. To a large extent that is a result of the lunacy of the left convincing me there is almost no basis for most of their arguments.

HOWEVER, recently, I have realized that most of my fellow Conservatives are willing to sit down at the table with the GOP and dine on shit sandwiches for the rest of eternity, and then they will call that the Feast of the Lamb of God.

These people have no fucking principles either.

Most Christians I know don't know the fucking Bible and they confuse morality with being nice.

they have no gratitude for the laws and Constitution that have given them the Freedom to worship. Their lack of Gratitude for their Freedoms and the structures that sustain those Freedoms has all but convinced me they don't worship at all. Instead, they sings songs and feel good and act nice to each other, and they call that a relationship with God.

Truthfully, I feel absolutely abandoned by Conservatives and Christians at this point.

I have become convinced we need to start over.

""The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots .""

This is true, because Freedom is an individual act, and is revolutionary in it's own essence. (Read Sartre - that's what I have been spending my time on lately). And if Freedom is to be sustained for Individuals, they must act in concert against the ever rising tide of fascism that emanates from the lazy-motherfuckers who want to steal their way through life.

But it is not JUST for the purposes of Liberty that we need to have a revolution.

Unfortunately, Nietzsche was also right. In order to live a life of Freedom one needs to have the hardness to be willing to war for it.

We have become too soft.

We're living in very sick times. And, as strange as it is to say, we may need a war so that we DON'T wipe ourselves out completely.

As all of us who read the NT know that in those times there were the Pharisees, Sadducees and Jesus's own GOP!


"We're living in very sick times. And, as strange as it is to say, we may need a war so that we DON'T wipe ourselves out completely."

Sad but I totally agree with you here.

Exactly Nco.

A brutal war will blow away all the relativism and PC crap and return to absolutism. The next world war will be killed or be killed and there will be no center ground. What we need now is a rabid enemy that wants to eliminate us like we had in WWII WAIT ---we have one!

Actually there is some truth in that statement. I have seen that that perception sure seems to guide some Jews.
One must remember that jealousy is a very strong emotion.
So contemplate what exactly God meant when He told Moses that he would move the Jews to jealousy via true Christianity. Read Deut:32:21 and explained by Paul in Romans 10:19,20,and 21 Paul lays it out perfectly being a Jew himself.
Unfortunately there is a deep hatred of all things Christian among many Jews.

Jesus commanded his followers to -"Occupy til I come" Occupy is a military term meaning-
Hold the Ground Won!

turning the other cheek -- we've already tuned more than two cheeks-now it is time to fight--

BTW- we got the Full Armor of God - Eph 6 - from God (Christ) himself- He put it on himself--as written in in Is 59 -- after He asked the Hebrews--"What are you doing about the shedding of innocent blood and unjust judges?!"

"Absolutely abandoned by conservatives and christians"

Indeed. I no longer attend a church regularly. They seem to have lost their way. Francis is the worst.

But I still read the Bible (almost) daily.

Upheaval is needed.

Bring it.

'Unfortunately there is a deep hatred of all things Christian among many Jews.'

Here is what we, not hate, but have come to despise since it is the signal for worse to come.. read thru the comments on that site link.

You will find that the belief in the SPIRIT of the Word has been replaced by the demonic insistence that Jews must convert AND be held accountable for the death of Jesus, and since the GOP is the party of Jesus, Jews can be neither GOP nor Conservative, because they are JEWS.

So let me spin al this around..Jesus appears and insists he was only a rabbi, and all the christians are dead wrong.

Do you convert or insist it;s the anti christ?

All we have left is to determine if the Democratic Party is the party of God or the anti-christ

I DOUBT if there are many more conservative (as Goldwater saw it) than I am, but like him ...

“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”

Evangelical ascendancy in the GOP is driving me out. In te form too many have taken it to... it is RACISM.

Make no mistake

Racism? LOL!
My points stand and just because people perceive a lie as truth doesn't make them right.
I have yet to meet ANY true Christian who expects or demands anyone convert on pain of punishment, PERIOD!
Peoples perceived fantasies do not translate into truth.
There is indeed a very strong HATRED for all things Christian among many Jews.
This was foretold to Moses by God himself and is caused by God himself.
I wish it weren't so, but the truth is paramount, and denying it will just bring more sorrow.

not fact.

It is the actuation of such faith in the real world, and it's violence to jews which gets us where you think there is hatred for things christian.

The bible is the word of man. Moses did not describe his own burial, and there is a TON of actual evidence of the 5 books being written at different times by J, R, E and D and broguth back to Israel by Nathaniel at the end of the time of the Babylonian Exile, at the ascendance of the Persian.

We KNOW the NT is the word of man.

Turning the other cheek has nothing to do with giving up your rights and pussifying yourself to make others happy. Turning the other cheek was specifically addressing the endless revenge related violence that was an integral part of society at the time.

It is something that is supposed to be extremely personal. Nowhere is there an indication that people should collectively be turning the other cheek while Muslim hordes are busy raping and pillaging. There comes a time when you have to stand for your rights and the rights of those who are weaker (and dumber). That is precisely the wrong time to be turning the other cheek.

"I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm achieved salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me." Isaiah 63:5

EPA: You are such a hypocrite. You flail your arms at the merest site of any anti-Jewish speech yet denigrate Christianity and Christians at will. You are a shameful person.
You claim to have conversed with a true 'Christian' who speaks antithetical to Christian Scripture, but you know he's a true Christian, right?
Show me where it says Moses wrote about his own burial? It is a manifestation of ignorance to claim that the Torah was written by Moses when it is described as 'The Books of Moses', notice that salient point.
You know that The New Testament is uninspired, do you? I'm sick of your tripe and especially your racism this and racism that bullshit.

I think "occupy until I come" was more based on an understanding of the Jeremiah Protocol: marry, build houses, have children, flourish in the land of your enemy.

But do not hide. Nope, never. Don't join some damn cult and drink Kool-aid. Don't give twenty percent of your income to a televangelist who wants you to plant "seed faith" so that he can jet around the country in his sky limo and plant ten thousand tulips in his front yard every Spring.

And most of all, don't "like" a Facebook prophet who churns out daily "thus sayeth the Lord" blathering about blessings and spooky stuff.

Christianity works because it is practical and makes sense.

Epa is good at arguing his own point, and I really don't have to do it for him, but I feel like I want to come to his defense here.

Epa is not saying the Torah is inspired and the New Testament.

He is saying that, according to Scientific thinking, the evidence is the books of the Bible were written by men, not by God.

He is right about that.

We who have faith may believe they are God-breathed or God-inspired, or that they are for instruction, or whatever , but we must, as rational human beings, be able to separate out our faith from what we KNOW through empirical evidence to be true.

Hey CJK, if you have ANY knowledge of the 5 Books of Moses (theoretically BY Moses) you know it includes 'his' description of his end and internment.

There is NO argument about this. There is NO RABBI except the craziest of crazy not even orthodox who thinks God wrote the 5 books of Moses.

It is also a fact that human apostles wrote the new testament.

This is not arguable.

This also has NOTHING to do with whether God exists or not.

It also has NOTHING to do with BELIEF in God.

Religion is man made.

Religion is not needed by a perfect being.

I was arguing with SEVERAL individuals and more at what is SUPPOSED to be a Libertarian site who CLAIMED to be true Christians who were certain that I, Ghandi, all the folks in the Garden of the Righteous of Nations who had not PROFESSED faith properly, all who ever lived lives of good deeds, who worked to heal this planet, who saved lives, cured disease without such professions of faith could not be helped and were bound for hell.

i.e. Salvation lay only THEIR WAY (sounds like a bunch of Imams to me)

My MAIN argument to most of the comments as to why Jews vote liberal, is that it was clear that to be a conservative, and therefore a republican, being Jewish (JUST AS YOU IDENTIFIED ME AS A CLOSET LIBERAL AS YOU SEE IT) EXCLUDED you from the 'club' because you were Jewish (and therefore had beliefs about faith as I had) and had NOTHING to do with your politics.

Anti Semitism is racism, and therefore I stand by my identification of this compulsion and my identification of it.

I REGRET you are in here with an EXCLUSIONARY FAITH if that is what it is.

I think exclusionary faith and therefore exclusionary entrance to anything like heaven is EVIL and CRUEL based on the HISTORY of such faith in this world.

This seemed to drive some people crazy, especially when I SPECIFICALLY rejected this as a religion I would have anything to do with, NO MATTER WHAT.

I believe, a PERFECT BEING will be accepting ANYONE whose life is led doing right, BECAUSE IT IS RIGHT, based on deeds. Words of faith ARE CHEAP (IMO) unless they are the leading elements of deeds.

This idea was specifically REJECTED by people who considered themselves (Christian) Zionists (all of whom expected Jesus to arrive and jews to convert and profess***PROPERLY). And when I pointed out this would never happen (becuase to us, reward is based on DEED), the PURE antisemitic canards of 'stiff necked' yadda yadda, was heard.

This is HOW IT IS

THIS is UNFORTUNATELY how many Jews experience Christianity and this is why THIS is filled.

That is a statement NOT ABOUT Jesus, but about man made religions, follies of faith, and the incredible weakness of humankind which leads to EVIL.

You seem to be pissed off that HUMANS have made CRAP out Christianity.
It's not limited to Christianity.


Humans are not weak

This is EARTH.
