    I figured you had to be running a joke. I appreciate the humor.

    Thanks. ;)

    I was conscious enough to learn quite a bit from my pain, though.
    You too could ask yourself the question, what does my pain teach me?

    I, for one, would never know to appreciate pain killers had I not had pain.

    We are in agreement.

    I'm not joking. The only way this country is going to get back to its foundation is if it starts practicing the Bible exactly as it's written.

    I'm not joking. The only way this country is going to get back to its foundation is if it starts practicing the Bible exactly as it's written.
    I certainly hope that you're joking...if you include ALL of the bible as it is written:

    Rape In The Bible
    http://www.evilbible.com/Rape.htm



    Ritual Human Sacrifice in the Bible

    http://www.evilbible.com/Ritual_Human_Sacrifice.htm

    Murder in the Bible

    http://www.evilbible.com/Murder.htm


    Slavery in the Bible

    http://www.evilbible.com/Slavery.htm

    Critically thinking individuals, guided by a desire to teach the young about love, would help.

    Teaching them to start making choices very early on in their lives, would help.

    Teaching them to solve their own problems and to know when to ask for help would go a long way towards healing the root-cause of what is ailing the world, also.

    But what we are presently teaching children about books like the bible and the quran is going to continue to contribute to the present sense of confusion in our world that we see.

    What is taught in the bible, IMHO, is teaching young folks by sublimation, how to start a war.

    And that war starts inside of that person before it starts on the outside.

    You know who follows the bible pretty closely as it's written? Westboro Baptist.

    And you have to be joking if you're posting links to Landover Baptist. Everyone knows that is satire.

    Don't make me lose the respect you earned by posting that link...lol

    Why would I need respect of some unsaved trash when God loves me enough to have sent his only son, Christ Jesus, to save me, among other people.

    Sorry, 'saved' trash. I thought perhaps you might be a decent person.

    My error.

    There is no pleasing you, is there?

    Last I checked, decency meant conformity to prevailing norms. So that's what I'm doing, conforming to prevailing norms.

    You've failed at trolling. You are beneath my notice now.

    It wasn't one of my personal goals, to succeed at trolling. I actually wanted to be like everyone else on forums. I'm finally getting there, slowly but surely.
