If it makes you feel better.
I am quite familiar with the works of Funk, Borg and Crossan. Having worked with them I do have an insider's opinion. I disagree with your statement. Their views are not an attempt to salvage a moralistic credibility for Christianity but to sipher through the various traditions and extrapolate the most probable Jesus. Whether correct or not is not really relevant at this point since all including Schweitzer fall under the minimalist umbrella and work against the literalist, fundamentalist view of the historical Jesus. My personal view would be more on the side of Robert Eisenman and James Tabor.
Again, most police die at traffic stops, most officers never even fire their weapon. This claim has no relevance to reality.
Don't think I am not the one who said Mueller would be done in two weeks ...
hahahah now That is funny shit. Calm down goober.
See, this is what I don't get. If you are a responsible firearms owner, why would more regulations bother you? Why would you feel threatened by that?
Lots and lots of claims and statistics. Boy, was. glad to see all the links so I could check out these claims and learn more. I mean, this is an OP about religious trends in Europe and how that relates to the United States, and so let's jump in.
Clearly a cultural thing. Lots of women in mine cut their hair at middle age and hair is widely seen as a sign of fertility. In cultures where women hide their hair, it's seen as modesty because hair is seen as a sign of availability and fertility so women are seen as being sexually provocative by showing it.
Subjugation of women and indigenous peoples, rape scandals, shuffling bad "seeds" to multiple parishes to hide them and protect the church, (subsequently adding more victims), erroneous and harmful sex ed, the Inquisition, support of the Nazis, the movement away from religion because of the contradictory dogmas and science denials, etc...
Moral values are subjective. They evolve as we do.
I mean conflict is unavoidable so sometimes you have no choice
"Failed how? Because you say so? WAAAAAH CARE TO COMPARE YOUR CREDENTIALS TO CARRIER AND PRICE?"
You missed the point
Aw, did I hit a nerve?
I've pointed out what you do in numerous comments. It's not my fault you turn a deaf ear to constructive criticism.
At least Truman did not have to resign.
THEY TOOK 'ER JERBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Trump lets you use him like a sex puppet?
He intentionally made a righteous, necessary condemnation of sin. He was perfectly righteous, and intentionally so.
The 'Cliff's Notes' version:
If only there was a place to ask these questions?
?I choose Trump, because Trump, while being an imperfect vessel, indisputably constitutes the clearest path to maintaining the freedom with which our Creator endowed us.?
