Whether I'm religious is irrelevant. I defend everyone's rights, whether it affects me directly or not.You're not even religious, Trumpster. You're just full of paranoid rage, and the closest thing you have to a god is a flamboyant, metrosexual New York City billionaire.
Try your phony righteous indignation on someone else. Tough shit.
Then you know nothing about Islam, do you?Over here, in reality, I've been called an Islamophobe here by the lefties many times for criticizing the religion and saying it needs a Reformation.
So it looks like you're just another Trumpster who is ignorant about where I stand on issues.
Where does the scripture talk about anal sex?No. Christians say - in very very complicate words - that anal-sex is a sin. And changing sexual partners are a sin. And so on.
It is clearly to you what seems to be clearly to others. But if a Christian really should say so to you then tell him: A sin is only something what is someone able to do on the own free will. How god made someone or what happens against the own free will with a person is a challenge - often also for others - that's all.
skews is definitely on a Leftist payroll.Once again skews proves he/she/it is a visitor from opposite land. Hang the Ten Commandments on a classroom wall, get fired. Remove the American flag, replace it and pledge allegiance to the Fag flag and get lauded as a hero. Sad.
Actually Moses wrote Genesis about 1500 BC. The New Testament was written by the Apostles. The "books" were collated into print by Gutenberg in the 1450s.What do you not understand? The book of the books is an instrument which we made some hundred years after Jesus had been born.
Okay. So... Rights 101. Regardless of where you believe they "originate", whether in Natural Law or whether they are "God given" as some say, or whether they're due to common biology as you suggest - to instantiate a right, it has to become political. It has to be a political right. A natural right is inadequate, it's not enough. As you say, the natural right to life is worthless in the Roman arena.
So, then, the form of rights depends on the political landscape. In some places, the king says "I declare" and suddenly there are new rights. But here in America, the following statement most closely describes how we handle political rights:
You have no rights except those I choose to recognize.
Here in America, rights are defined by agreement.
"Overwhelming" agreement. 2/3 of Congress and 3/4 of the State legislatures, must agree.
No one gets to pull rights out of their butt. Abortion is not a right, and never has been. The Supreme Court can not define rights, they are in fact explicitly prohibited from doing so.
Murder is not illegal because it's wrong, it's illegal because it's impractical.
We simply can't have people running around killing each other all the time, it's bad for the economy
and bad for the stability of society (and bad for politicians who want to be re-elected).
Trump supporters are the kind of people that built this country
and made it the greatest in the world.
Only a fool would claim that they are a "shame".
