  2. No. 2 Theasalonians 3:10 says it all. The other verses are stupid.

    For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10

    To my knowledge this is the only verse of the Bible ever quoted by conservatives.

    There are 17 other verses in Chapter 3 of Thessalonians. Are they relevant?

    There are 23,144 other verses in the Bible. Are they relevant?

    How can people continue to pretend that the Bible doesn't promote left wing principles? The Bible is way more consistent with liberal political thought than with conservative politic thought. Does anybody get it?

    The people of Anglo Saxon heritage have always won in all aspects of society. I think the principles that brought greatness should be continued. I'm proud of my heritage and think it should be perpetuated.

    Those African/Middle Eastern belief systems seems to create an obsession over killing each other over some barren desert land. Once they get that squabble figured out in the next three or four thousand years they might join the conservative school of thought and actualy improve the world.

    Don't be ashamed of taking the good things from the Bible and discarding the rest. That's what Anglo Saxons do. We win. We take things.

    Be proud of your heritage.

    My liberal values were absolutely informed by my early religious indoctrination. How conservatives have turned the seven deadly sins into virtues is beyond me. I no longer call myself a christian but the fearlessly gentle example of Jesus still resonates strongly with me.

    I love the part of the bible where it says "God helps those that help themselves". With liberals they want Government to help them because they are too stupid to use God's given gifts..

    The bible also commands you to help those who are poor or sick and be welcoming of strangers.

    I think the Bible has been treated as a symbol rather than a document that is intended to be read. The image of the Bible has been rebranded. Many never challenge what others claim the Bible is. They just accept it because the Bible is a large book to read.

    Absolutely. They are supposed to be executed by a righteous government.
