I've already eviscerated you.....(better look that up before you imagine it a compliment, dunce)....why are you back?
Second time: There is no reference to Jesus Christ in the Constitution anywhere. Political Chic is a liar. That is settled.

Post the words “Jesus Christ” taken directly from the US Constitution. Unless you can do that you are the only liar here.

ding perhaps you can split the document up and help her find the words “Jesus Christ” in the Constitution.

If you can’t then you are a liar too.

Birds of a feather.
How do you think “the Year of our Lord” found its way into the Constitution?

I mean given this country was founded as a multicultural nation and all. :lol:

If anyone had ever posted that you'd offer either a true, or even intelligent, post, I'd have laughed in his face....but you wouldn't have heard me above all the other folks who were laughing too.


This was just too darn easy.

A Christian friend said I've been reading a false Bible all these years. Showed me his and pointed to this scripture: "Jesus said "My Kingdom is part of this World, and will be established on Earth as soon as every elected office in America is held by Bible Thumping Republicans!""

I entertained the idea of reparations for slavery, it WAS within the real of probability. They lost me, slavery ended 155 years ago. Rioting and destroying stuff, um no fuck racism. Its happening NOW. Racism is a lie. Riots are very real...
If we are going to consider reparations it should be for existing blacks to pay us for allowing them to stay in the US and make this their home. We pay many monthly for food, rent and medical treatments when needed. If they were still living in a tribe in Africa, what would their life be? Would they own a car, computer, a wardrobe and be considered "poor?" Doubt it.
White people get money for food, rent and medical treatment. What are those reparations for?
White people aren't asking for reparations.
1.Arguendo is a Latin legal term meaning for the sake of argument.
Arguendo - Wikipedia

Before the knee jerk aspersions learned in government school kick in (see what I did there?), let’s try this as an intellectual exercise: examples of evil as the motivation, as the fuel for many events and doctrines, abound. Consider the case of the Las Vegas shooter by whose actions 868 people were injured, and 60 killed, with no benefit to the shooter….and, as of this date, no motive. Call it evil.

Now, take the further step of personification of evil, as Satan, or as Obama’s mentor, Saul Alinsky posited, Lucifer….just as God can be viewed as the personification of good.



2. Now, bigger picture: Richard Wurmbrand begins his book “Marx and Satan,” [*Wurmbrand, Marx and Satan, https://legiochristi.com/static/lit/Marx_and_Satan.pdf] this way: “Marxism today governs over one third of mankind. If it could be shown that the originators and perpetrators of this movement were indeed behind-closed doors devil-worshipers, consciously exploiting Satanic powers, would not such a startling realization require action?”
I’d say a careful consideration of such a widespread power of evil a worthy endeavor, rather than dismissing it out of hand.




3. “Paul Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania. He has just published "The Devil and Karl Marx,"
The Devil and Karl Marx

4. The book has come out during an important time in our history since so many Americans, particularly our youth, have fallen for the seductive siren song of socialism taught to them by the academic elite.

5. "The Black Book of Communism," edited by Stephane Courtois, details the Marxist-Leninist death toll in the 20th century. Here is the breakdown: USSR, 20 million deaths; China, 65 million; Vietnam, 1 million; North Korea and Cambodia, 2 million each; Eastern Europe, 1 million; and about 3.5 million in Latin America, Africa and Afghanistan. These figures understate those detailed by Professor R.J. Rummel in "Death by Government." He finds that from 1917 until its collapse, the Soviet Union murdered or caused the death of 61 million people, mostly its own citizens. From 1949 to 1976, Communist China's Mao Zedong regime was responsible for the death of as many as 78 million of its own citizens.” The Devil and Karl Marx



6. Evil “ There are certain words that have passed out of the realm of public debate. One of them is the word “evil.” Its disuse is certainly not because the world is any less dangerous, or because people have finally gotten the better of their base nature, or because Satan has been neutered. When was the last time you heard anyone use the word in common conversation? When was the last time it was uttered by one of your political leaders?”
What does the Bible say about recognizing evil?

The doctrines that result in million upon millions of dead human being are evil.



Evil always takes advantage of ignorance (Proverbs 7:6–27)

If the Bible isn’t your source of knowledge, Santayana put it this way:

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Acts 4
32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.


Which has what to do with the OP? A sign of your indoctrination?

The Bible has naught to do with and certainly doesn't endorse, socialism.
Not hardly.

An accurate understanding of the Bible requires the distinction between 'redistribution' and 'generosity.'

"Some people conclude from these verses that the Bible supports government-enforced wealth redistribution. But what these verses really show is that the Bible advocates generosity.

These are two very different concepts.
Generosity springs from free will....not force, coercion, or threats.


The motivation to give and share originates in compassion, as 1 John 3:17 indicates—but there is choice involved.

With socialism, it is the opposite.
Redistribution of wealth is always by force of government. The government simply uses its overwhelming power to take what it thinks is “fair” from the “givers.” Is God a Socialist?

Generosity is based on choice....on free will....the cornerstone of Judeo-Christian tradition.
Not so with any of these six: Socialism, Liberalism, Communism, et al



And this is the face of government coercion.....


Under the Bolsheviks, the dynasty with which Franklin Roosevelt felt comradeship, slaughter was so omnipresent that corpse-disposal actually became a problem.

There was resistance to the Lefts mandate of collectivism, especially in the Ukraine.
September 11, 1932, Stalin wrote to his assistant, 'We must take steps so we do not lose the Ukraine.' So, 1932-1933, all food supplies in the Ukraine were confiscated.


Those who tried to leave were shot, those who remained, starved to death. Men, women, children. They died tortuously slowly.
NKVD squads collected the dead. They received 200 grams of bread for every dead body they delivered; often they didn't wait until the victim was dead.


'Lazar Kaganovich (together with Vyacheslav Molotov) participated with the All-Ukrainian Party Conference of 1930 and were given the task of implementation of thecollectivization policy that caused a catastrophic 1932–33 famine known as theHolodomor. He also personally oversaw grain confiscations during the same time periods.

'Similar policies also inflicted enormous suffering on the Soviet Central Asian republic ofKazakhstan, the Kuban region, Crimea, the lower Volga region, and other parts of the Soviet Union. As an emissary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, Kaganovich traveled to Ukraine, the central regions of the USSR, the NorthernCaucasus, and Siberia demanding the acceleration of collectivization and repressions against theKulaks, who were generally blamed for the slow progress of collectivization.'
Lazar Kaganovich - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
That religious freedom was enshrined in the Constitution, does not mean that the nation was not a Christian nation.
Since no one had to be a Christian to be an American citizen under the new Constitution m, there is no way it truthfully can be said that America was founded as a Christian nation.

Sure it can. The nation was massively majority Christian, with Christians dominating every aspect of public life and with Churches happy to engage in politics and Christian ideas and culture enshrined in law and culture.

That it also respected the religious freedom of every citizen, including religious minorities, does not conflict with that.
So where exactly did Jesus command His followers to seize earthly political power and set up Christian nations, where they can then lord over and dominate others?
Your pretense that it is the Christians who are the would be tyrants in our society today, is not fooling anyone. Try again lefty.

Since the writers of the Constitution included the phrase "In The Year of Our Lord" does that mean me, as a non Christian, have to bow down to you and acknowledge you as my Lord and Master?

The forgeries and fallacies of 4th century Gnostic Christians; who rejected the Almighty; who celebrated the triumph of evil over good.

I don’t really like these discussions about the Founding Father’s “intentions” either, but we do live in the Republic they started. Lots of folks get all “originalist” about our Constitution, and about what “America” supposedly was, is, or ought to be. Mostly it’s politics, but even normal religious folks can get crazy about wrong-headed religious intentions. Secularists sometimes go too far in arguing the other side. The ‘Christian nationalists” are thankfully a small minority of our nation, but as can be seen in Trump’s latest selection for the Supreme Court, this issue has wings. Those wings are NOT — in my opinion — flying us all up to heaven.

What you need bow to is scholarship, education, knowledge.


Such as this:

America was not founded to be a Christian only nation.
It was never meant to be a theocracy.

But it was founded by orthodox Christians, based on the Judeo-Christian Bible....which was the single most quoted document by the Founders, and points to Jesus Christ in the text of the Constitution. Segments of our founding documents come directly from the Bible.


That religion and that book were always seen as the guidance that would form the basis of our morality.

It is the neo-Marxist influence of government school that has corrupted the views of so many, and caused so many to deny America's origins.

I don't worry about any of it as it tends to work itself out without my help. As near as I can tell everything is cyclical for logical reasons. Every new beginning is another beginning's end.

If you were any more full of it you’d be infracting the national foie gras restrictions.

'Quote mining' is the term of art designed by liars like you who have no way to defend against actual, correct, and true quotes that I post.

Simple enough to prove.....let's see you post any of the thousands of quotes I've provided that aren't exactly as I documented them to be.

With a certain regularity, we find posters who have always imagined that they are bright, and well educated…..then find someone like me who outranks you by every intellectual metric…..and you can’t get over the damage to your self-image. Time to hand out another trophy for “Not-Tonight-Dear,- I’ve-Got-A-Crushed-Ego.”

I understand that you posted this as a flaccid attempt to assuage the pain of the spankings I've administered to your ego....but be assured: there's more where that came from.

Elsewhere above she writes:
And once again we find a Leftist proving that I am never wrong.
Real discussion with PoliticalChic is impossible because she is a completely immature and narcissistic, not to mention unscrupulous, person. She often takes accurate quotes out of context and claims they prove whatever she wants, even the opposite of the writer’s intentions. This is called “quote mining.” Again, here is the thread with countless examples of her taking quotes out of context and even reversing their meaning: The Dishonest Creationist Tactic of 'Quote Mining'. She is probably unique at USMB in having a thread dedicated to how she uses quotes out of context.

Here is a nice Christian — even anti-evolutionist — reminder that one should not “quote mine” as PoliticalChic so often does:

What Are the Dangers of Quote Mining?

On another subject, the growing modern use of “Common Era” and “BCE” for the traditional “AD/BC/“Year of Our Lord” dating method is often protested by religious rightwing Christians, a protest which I find both childish and repugnant. Actually, I usually use BC and AD myself, but agree CE and BCE is better and more inclusive. Indeed it is the most respectful dating method to use when discussing with those who use the Gregorian Calendar but are culturally NOT Christian.

Personally I don’t like the angry tone taken on BOTH sides of much of today’s religious / atheist arguments. Today there are mercifully few who still advocate “Christian nationalism.” I’m a little old-fashioned. PoliticalChic believes the original Paine was an atheist. He was not. Being a sort of modern Deist myself, I have no problem using “God” in everyday speech, or to make a colorful point or literary allusion. I must confess, though, I do most often use the word when ... swearing. ; )

With a certain regularity, we find posters who have always imagined that they are bright, and well educated…..then find someone like me who outranks you by every intellectual metric…..and you can’t get over the damage to your self-image. Time to hand out another trophy for “Not-Tonight-Dear,- I’ve-Got-A-Crushed-Ego.”

I understand that you posted this as a flaccid attempt to assuage the pain of the spankings I've administered to your ego....but be assured: there's more where that came from.

And once again we find a Leftist proving that I am never wrong.
Real discussion with PoliticalChic is impossible because she is a completely immature and narcissistic, not to mention unscrupulous, person. She often takes accurate quotes out of context and claims they prove whatever she wants, even the opposite of the writer’s intentions. This is called “quote mining.” Again, here is the thread with countless examples of her taking quotes out of context and even reversing their meaning: The Dishonest Creationist Tactic of 'Quote Mining'. She is probably unique at USMB in having a thread dedicated to how she uses quotes out of context.

Here is a nice Christian — even anti-evolutionist — reminder that one should not “quote mine” as PoliticalChic so often does:

What Are the Dangers of Quote Mining?

On another subject, the growing modern use of “Common Era” and “BCE” for the traditional “AD/BC/“Year of Our Lord” dating method is often protested by religious rightwing Christians, a protest which I find both childish and repugnant. Actually, I usually use BC and AD myself, but agree CE and BCE is better and more inclusive. Indeed it is the most respectful dating method to use when discussing with those who use the Gregorian Calendar but are culturally NOT Christian.

Personally I don’t like the angry tone taken on BOTH sides of much of today’s religious / atheist arguments. Today there are mercifully few who still advocate “Christian nationalism.” I’m a little old-fashioned. PoliticalChic believes the original Paine was an atheist. He was not. Being a sort of modern Deist myself, I have no problem using “God” in everyday speech, or to make a colorful point or literary allusion. I must confess, though, I do most often use the word when ... swearing. ; )

It's really a simple challenge I posed, so simple that even a dunce like you with a modicum of integrity could understand it....

....and you've failed.


Now, when will you be changing your avi to "LyingWeasel"?

I don't believe anyone has it as of yet.
