Thanks, you saved me looking up that one. Here's another one:

War is almost like an aphrodisiac for some. I think the chips will fall where they should and we don't have to lift a finger. Those who own this... well, they own it. Sorry you were given a bad time. I got tired of trying to calm people the last few times we did not go to war as they thought.

Indeed, mrsadm. Thanks for your words. Here's an example:



What a beautiful soul shines through those eyes in that picture... Yes, we are blessed...

Operating on the 'Kill 'em all, let God sort 'em out' mindset.

Yes, I attended a Baptist church in the South as a kid. No politics, religion was strictly private.

And they made no objection to removing morning prayer in public schools as a matter of the separation of church and state. It was none of their business, period. A lot of things were none of their business, gays, minorities, immigrants, other countries, and too many to list here.

The only thing I ever saw them do politically, at which they failed, was to keep the blue laws. That was because some stores were closed on Sundays and it gave people a day off to go to church, or not, but it gave them a day off which many businesses no longer care about now, nor even holidays. The idea was a day of rest.

We had prevailing wage laws, unions dominated and all the kids went to public school. We were all taught evolution in elementary school but it didn't get anyone's panties in a twist. And they didn't whine about the loss on the blue laws, either, it was what the voters wanted, and that was it. They respected the state.

They did have their quirks about other denominations as being theologically incorrect because they took 'baptism in water' literally as this verse described here:

The Baptism of Jesus

Matthew 3 :13 - 17


13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.

14 But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

15 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.

17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

And really, we were taught that other people's faith was none of our business there.

My family saw all religions as well as those that didn't acknowledge a deity, as equal.

The only thing we believed was the Golden Rule. That would end the religious abuse and hatreds we are fighting with now.

The entire religious right movement has been a sham from beginning to end and done terrible harm to us.

I won't enter the door of any church now after seeing what too many morphed into, greedy, corporate cults of pride and arrogance and finding fault with other humans. And their interest in government is HUGE turn off to me. None of their business messing with it.

JMHO... YMMV.

It ain't like we haven't been called a lot worse by the RWNJs. For years... Go for it!

Make another Feminist POTUS!

That'll make 'em mad!

Or we can elect JAG!

Lady parts running the USA will slay 'em !

Mr. JAG can teach 'em a thing or two, I'll bet.

If not, we can always go with:
