    This is interesting. Perhaps this is what happens to the USA and this is why we are a non player in the end times.... perhaps we become so divided, we are no longer a viable force in the world.....

    The worst part is we could point to a bunch of reasons why that is, but only time will tell.

    -The humorous part is that it doesn't matter the cause, we cannot stop it. And yet we try.

    From an Eathly perspective, sad and upsetting.

    From Gods perspective, a view of the depravity, ego and vanity of man.

    It's inevitable when you consider that a portion of the 'righteous' feel that its necessary for everyone to believe the same or be persecuted. rigidity in its intolerance of anything that is remotely non-christian will only serve to divide the nation in even more severe forms.

    I understand your point but at the same time, you have to admit that non-Christians are just as, or even more intolerant.

    by all means, yes they are. It's just another example of the polarization of two sides unwilling to believe anything else other than their way is the only way.

    makes me feel like the character Kronk in 'emporers new groove'. The scene where he's talking to the squirrel as the translator for the squirrel and Izma. "I hate being in the middle".
