Virulency: if you're going to take the Bible literally you probably shouldn't be allowed to pick and choose what parts you like...
Whatchoo Talkinbout: Ahh, the hate runs thick in this thread.
Fissile: Can't we just wall off the South, rename it Tardfarkistan, and call it good?
vudukungfu: Virulency: if you're going to take the Bible literally you probably shouldn't be allowed to pick and choose what parts you like...If you are going to take that book literally, you should be tossed in a farking nuthouse.Just like anyone that believe Ents can walk around and that farking superman really existed and came from another planet.frikking people shouldn't be allowed to vote or own guns. Not even drive cars.Loonies.Read your farking books, but fraking keep your cray cray to yourselves.
Whatchoo Talkinbout: Fissile: Can't we just wall off the South, rename it Tardfarkistan, and call it good?Funny, I was thinking the same thing about California and New York.
MrBallou: Not that he's advocating a theocracy. He's just got strong moral principles. Principles originated by semi-nomadic sheep herders 3000 years ago and perverted over the centuries by a rigid, power-grabbing priest-class eager to control the masses.You know, strong Christian Principles.
Diogenes: I never cease to be amazed at the depth and earnestness of some in their desire to return to a past that never existed.It's truly impressive.
All2morrowsparTs: Whatchoo Talkinbout: Fissile: Can't we just wall off the South, rename it Tardfarkistan, and call it good?Funny, I was thinking the same thing about California and New York.Why?
wxboy: Moore has previously claimed that 40 percent of public school students turn away from the church by the end of elementary school and 80 percent by the end of high school.If that were true, why is Christianity still such a big thing in this country?
MyRandomName: Why is it fark only approves links of obscure conservative loonies running in elections.There are just as many unknown liberal crazies who run.Oh yeah, fark libs and their down voting on anything that makes their "team" look bad.
PreMortem: I'm sorry to be all unconstitutional, but there should be a religious mental test to hold office.
UncomfortableSilence: How do these people get elected?!/Rhetorical question. *looks at the south, shudders*
Wook: It wouldn't be Friday without the obligatory anti-Christian thread. You poor Farkers have been such victims of such severe Christian oppression over the years...
Verrai: Not any worse than South Carolina's current LG, who has openly endorsed a restoration of slavery.
Ring of Fire: PreMortem: I'm sorry to be all unconstitutional, but there should be a religious mental test to hold office.Fun fact in North Carolina there is a religious test to hold office. If you ain't believin in God you ain't gettin to run for no office. ( Article VI section 8 disqualifications from office.http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/legislation/constitution/ncconstitution. ht ml
Magorn: Magorn: Semantic Warrior: Unoriginal_Username: ManateeGag: the Bible also isn't the book of law for the United States, so why are we referencing it?If we use his logic, we need to get rid of our political system as well./someone needs to explain to him that biblical Jesus is a socialist"Render unto Caesar"... so taxes would still be paid.Ironically I often use that very biblical passage to prove to some of my more fundamentalist acquaintance that Jesus Christ himself who was one of the first people ever recorded articulating the principle of exasperation of Church and state, and if'n he was fer it, they should be too"exasperation" of Church and state...motherfarking autocorrect....though I kinda do like that phrase and need to work it in to conversations henceforth
LesserEvil: UncomfortableSilence: How do these people get elected?!/Rhetorical question. *looks at the south, shudders*He's not elected to anything. He's "a GOP candidate" I don't even know if he's THE GOP candidate. For all we know, this idiot is some outlier whackjob with zero chance of winning the primary.I guess I'd call this "the pundit effect" - the result of extremists who have taken over the political discourse in this country on both sides of the spectrum, throwing logic and common sense out of the window. Sadly, if enough of these morans get on ballots, eventually a few of them will get elected.
que.guero: There are also no leisure suits in the bible so that guy is SO going to hell.
indy_kid: PreMortem: I'm sorry to be all unconstitutional, but there should be a religious mental test to hold office.The problem isn't moronic candidates such as this twit: it's the morons who buy into his derp and elect him to office.We need a test covering the basic functions of government - including separation of church and state - before people should be allowed to vote.

Aquapope: If the SC retards listen to him and home school, but still pay for public schools through taxes, that would be OK. Reasonable money for smaller, smarter classes? Who wouldn't want that?
Agent Smiths Laugh: PreMortem: I'm sorry to be all unconstitutional, but there should be a religious mental test to hold office.You don't have to pass an IQ test to be in the senate though.
SquiggsIN: Pants full of macaroni!!: SquiggsIN: [img.fark.net image 460x576]Because one worships The Wrong God.even though God, Allah, and Jehovah are just 3 names of the same being according to the Big 3 monotheistic religions?
HawgWild: FTFA: He has encouraged Christian families to withdraw their children from public schools and educate them at home or enroll them in religious schoolsBecause that IS in the Bible. Right next to "the private market has a solution to everything" and "slavery is okay." Jesus Himself said it on the Mount. Wonderful, blonde haired, blue-eyed Jesus.
