It would be, if you would shut up and accept Jesus Christ into your life.

Eventually there's going to be a reckoning between the Randroids and the Rapture Bunnies in the Republican party. They can't both get what they want.

Well allrighty.  The radical Muslims have been chosen by God (Allah) to carry out His will, then.

Did he realize what he said?
 
2017-09-15 12:09:56 AM  
Yeah, because natural disasters and human motivated terrorism is how God sends his messages.  What else could be the explanations?

D) All of the above, basically

He may not live in a van and he may not be their leader, but he is a crazy guy and a member of ISIS in spirit.

If they did handle rattlers and sip strychnine, at least it would be more likely that they drop dead soon.

It's a shame they did all of those nuclear bomb tests in Nevada when Alabama would have been a much better choice.

Then why nuke two office buildings? Why not go after the Pentagon or some military base?

This dipshiat says 9/11 was punishment by god for US sins, and he might become a Senator.
Bill Maher said 9/11 was punishment by Arabs for (percieved) US crimes, and his show was cancelled.
At least Bill's explanation didn't include the supernatural.  Seems a little unfair, though.

No. If they want to improve their state, they can do it themselves.

What got Maher was pointing out that, whatever else they were, the 9/11 hijackers weren't cowards.  An even more obviously true statement.  Those were fun times

OBL/al-qaeda listed 2 specific reasons why they planned and carried out the 9/11 attacks.  It's actually quite sad that most Americans couldn't name them.  It's a farking disgrace that someone aspiring to be a Senator would be so ignorant and throw in the god bullshiat.

And he was directly quoting a white guy (who was quoting Malcolm X):

In a sermon delivered shortly after the September 11 attacks in 2001, Wright made comments about an interview of former U.S. Ambassador Edward Peck he saw on Fox News. Wright said:
I heard Ambassador Peck on an interview yesterday. Did anybody else see him or hear him? He was on Fox News. This is a white man, and he was upsetting the Fox News commentators to no end. He pointed out - did you see him, John? - a white man, he pointed out, ambassador, that what Malcolm X said when he got silenced by Elijah Muhammad was in fact true - America's chickens are coming home to roost.

It's just so interesting and inspiring to see how people who shout out "I'm a CHRISTIAN" the loudest are also the ones who shout out "YOU'RE THE REAL SINNER" totally ignoring that Jesus said "Judge not lest ye be judged" and "He who is without sin something something". And I am lifelong Jewish and know that much about Jesus.

Would you be kind enough to refresh the memories of us non-digraceful senators what those two items were? I vaguely remember something about US troops in Saudi Arabia after the Kuwait thingading?

And he'll still win.  Hell, Sessions won his seat unopposed in 2014.  It's weird, in that many years ago, a few Democratic Senate candidates and a whole lot of Democratic House candidates were elected unopposed in Alabama, but the realignment of the two parties is totally just a myth made up by the lieberal media...

If you don't believe that God and Allah are one and the same, it would appear that God gave control to Allah on 9-11. If that's the case, you believe in polytheism, and I think that's verboten in Christian theology. The other, more widely-accepted interpretation is that God is a dick, and if you believe in the Bible, there's plenty of evidence for that.
