    The term has come to be applied to the Beast from Revelation, who, among other things, does return from the dead, perform miracles and make a statue speak.

    I like PETA to a point. I have a slight struggle as to where my ethics lay on this matter. But tomorrow I shall delight in the consumption of a bird, stuffing, and a tasty dessert and not think twice on it.

    Personally, I think you can be ethical and advocate for the humane treatment of animals without resorting to the tactics PETA so often uses.

    6th grader vs Creationist

    Yes, this is the offspring of Kent Hovind who last I checked is still in jail for tax evasion. They promote an dmake money from "Godonomics" which is basically everything you hvae heard about lesser government and deregulation and protection of the rich.

    Yes I heard about that yesterday. Obama gets the derp too and one of the items he ran on in 2008 was clean coal which does not exist. And let's not forget about(as linked in your link) Obama appointed Francis Collins as head of the NIH

    I'm still waiting for a politician to admit that he/she believes in the Greek Gods of Mount Olympus.

    I would vote for you. I wouldn't even look at what issues you stand on.

    I don't see how the Obama comment is comparable. Rubio was being asked about his opinion of natural history with implications for public education. Obama was speaking about how he understands his faith at a religious venue for religious voters. I would hope someone brings up their religion's relevant holy texts when asked how they understand their religion. The question started explicitly with the notion that he was responding to whether God had literally created the Earth. It would have been as bizarre to ignore the Genesis account in his answer as it was for Rubio to raise it in his.

    RC-1991: The sad thing is that would still imply a foreign policy that is at least somewhat less belligerent than the neo-cons.

    Glenn Beck hard at work on "Agenda 21"

    The real Agenda 21 as explained here has to do with climate change, renewable energy, feeding an increasing population and so on. Beck wrote a book he says is scarier than 1984 featruring Agenda 21 as a anti-freedom, socialism gone out of control plan to get us all into food lines and turn us over to the UN. SOmething that startled me on the last page is the bit about the 67 trillion shadow banking system. I have posted about it before, when it was only in the 40 trillions.

    I thought this one was a joke but apparently not:

    Kentucky: 1 year in jail for being an atheist

    'In Kentucky, a homeland security law requires the state’s citizens to acknowledge the security provided by the Almighty God--or risk 12 months in prison.
    The law states, "The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God as set forth in the public speeches and proclamations of American Presidents, including Abraham Lincoln's historic March 30, 1863, presidential proclamation urging Americans to pray and fast during one of the most dangerous hours in American history, and the text of President John F. Kennedy's November 22, 1963, national security speech which concluded: "For as was written long ago: 'Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.'"

    The law requires that plaques celebrating the power of the Almighty God be installed outside the state Homeland Security building--and carries a criminal penalty of up to 12 months in jail if one fails to comply.'

    I don't understand how one "complies". I mean, how would they know? Are they going to march up to everyone and ask them? Is it a questioned to be asked along with a rotuine traffic violation?

    It is amusing that they would rely on god since islamists worship the same guy.

    I'm a Christian and that is one of the scariest things I have ever heard.

    I know this kind of stuff is a dime a dozen, but I just had to put this here. I was flipping through a local paper this morning and happened on the editorial page. Always a mistake. Here's a direct quote from a letter to the editor:

    I myself have been thinking along the lines that our newly elected president, who by the way, sources say, is already looking for a way to allow himself to run another term after this one, has such a high opinion of himself that he might even be the coming anti-Christ.

    He has all the qualifications in my opinion.


    Sure, you laugh, but let's look at the qualifications:

    1. He has explicitly denied the deity of Christ
    2. He comes from Eastern Europe
    3. He is currently the head of a one world government
    4. He has managed to turn everything around so that things are perceived to be wonderful all over the -

    Hmm, wait a minute. I guess the only qualification he actually meets is that he "has a high opinion of himself." Too bad that one isn't in the Bible.

    Plus hasn't it been said that if you name somebody the Anti - Christ, that odds are they probably won't turn out to be the Anti - Christ?

    Christ and his followers are responsible for some of the biggest atrocities in history, so it is actually a good thing if Obama turns out to be the AntiChrist.

    I'm...confused. What atrocity did Christ actually commit?
