To all you religious morons,
'Let the chaos begin!'

'Please kill each other soon, so we can have our planet back.'

'Those who fought in the name of God were recognized as the Milites Christi, warriors or knights of Christ. The Crusades were a series of military campaigns that took
place during the 11th through 13th centuries in response to the Muslim Conquests. Originally, the goal was to recapture Jerusalem and the Holy Land from the Muslims,
and support the besieged Christian Byzantine Empire against the Muslim Seljuq expansion into Asia Minor and Europe proper. Later, Crusades were launched against
other targets, either for religious reasons, such as the Albigensian Crusade, the Northern Crusades, or because of political conflict, such as the Aragonese Crusade.
In 1095, at the Council of Clermont, Pope Urban II raised the level of war from bellum iustum ("just war"), to bellum sacrum ("holy war").[4] In 16th Century France there
was a succession of wars between Roman Catholics and Protestants (Hugenots primarily), known as the French Wars of Religion. In the first half of the 17th century, the
German states, Scandinavia (Sweden, primarily) and Poland were beset by religious warfare in the Thirty Years War. Roman Catholicism and Protestantism figured in the
opposing sides of this conflict, though Catholic France did take the side of the Protestants but purely for political reasons.'

Name calling only shows ignorance. State your position or be quiet and be open to others positions. Listen and maybe you will learn a thing or two.

I can see William that you do not believe in anything transcendental (forget the Bible for now). If you would but read the thousands of NDEs at http://www.near-death.com/ or http://www.nderf.org/ or several other sites, you might have a different opinion. If you insist upon not believing in anything spiritual, please don't bother to respond because it will just be an exercise in typing for you.

Leave the bible out of it, it belongs in church, not in our public life or government! The bible is about faith, you know like by the Brooklyn bridge or buy you way into heaven, do you know anyone from there! LOL It does not represent truth or wisdom, its just stories past through time and changed a million times the fit the needs of religious morons!

Gary what world do you live in? We need to put an end to the people suffering and paying for the mistakes of the politicians. They are selfish children who want more and more power, money etc. They don't care who suffers because of it, I believe the word is GREED!
When did the almighty dollar become more important the a human life? When did it become ok to screw the people, they think we are stupid cattle. Time to vote them out to take back our lives. Show them we aren't going to take it anymore. It is more important now than ever to vote, ask questions and become involved in what is going on. THIS AFFECTS US ALL, get involved or don't say a thing just keeping taking what meager existence you can scrape up. There is more of us than there are of them!!!!

When I get to Occupy ___ (fill in the blank), my sign will say "Sign too small to say it all!" or maybe just "NUMEROUS INJUSTICES!"

Why the 99ers? Who are they? What do they want? Allow me to clue you in:

Maybe, just maybe some of the 99% are pissed about the Robber-barons-gone-wild club on Wall St. who have caused so much homelessness and suffering. "If it's too big to fail, it's too big to exist."

Maybe, just maybe some of the 99% are obviously pissed about lack of jobs. Leave it to the greedy 1% to come up with the corrupt plan of outsourcing everything.

Maybe, just maybe some of the 99% are pissed about the Environmental-criminals-gone-wild club. One example is XL Keystone tar sand plan they are forcing on us. Anyone seen Gasland? Who is all for your tap water catching on fire? Who is all for cancer causing toxins being in your soil, water and air? Great fun, huh? Who ever went to jail for the oil rig workers in the gulf dying? Did poor little rich boy Tony Hayward ever get his life back? What does the ocean floor look like now? Not healthy, I am guessing. Was anyone ever prosecuted for the sea turtles being burnt alive? What about all the other wildlife that were murdered? What happened to the jobs there? Does anyone love that they are blowing away as many mountaintops as they can? Ask the folks in the Appalachian Mountains. End Mountaint
