    Read the comments on this article to see what I am refering to.

    Rand Paul: There's a 'sickness' in the country - POLITICO.com

    The polarization between peple of Bible-based ethics and those whose values are entirely independent of any sort of traditonal Christianity is growing. If this continues I think this will lead to wide-spread violence and even political division. This country may end up dividing in order to keep the peace and letting the two groups go their seperate ways.

    I was with the Assembly of God for most of my life. Decades.

    If it comes to war, I will side against the Pharisees.

    Matthew 23.

    The best thing to happen is for the country to divide. It's inevitable. At some point the secularists are going to have to start screaming and start acting. They are already envious of muslims killing Christians in Egypt, the Sudan, Nigeria and dreaming of the next French style revolution. sooner or later they will have to act or marginalize themselves.

    I pray you are wrong. I take my oaths to defend the Constitution and the Republic very seriously. A divide in our nation would violate those oaths, and I cannot think of myself as an oath breaker.

    None of those things are advocated by any Christians I know.

    Again, you come s-trolling into a thread only to create heat and no light.

    Really? You saying Romney's not a Christian?

    You saying the people who were cheering at the R debates were not Christians?

    Not sure that's a judgment you wanna be making, bro.

    If you want to discuss the growing divide between Christians and secularists, how about starting with some truth in your posts??

    " They are already envious of muslims killing Christians in Egypt, the Sudan, Nigeria.." WTF? Do you actually believe that??

    The US is probably the most nationalist nation on earth. We're pretty well divided on the issues now but certainly not enough to the destroy the union. Besides, Corpocracy would never allow it. It's bad for business.
