Did you hear the one about the liberal atheist who killed 2 women in a FLA yoga studio?

They asked him why he did it. He said he could because he was not Christian. Liberals imagine themselves to be so clever that they see through the irrationality and hypocrisy of Christianity. But little do they know that then they also, in effect, see through the irrationality and hypocrisy of the Great Commandment: "love thy neighbor as thyself". The Florida shooter and all the other shooters that liberalism has spawned weren't bound by the Great Christian Commandment were they? Did liberals offer something to replace it? So who then is really responsible for the horrible liberal change that is happening in the souls of would-be shooters, and millions of others who in record numbers are committing suicide and overdosing on drugs?

So do enlighten us on how non Christian societies have managed to exist and set up moral codes for themselves? Is it possible people like the shooter you cited act not necessarily out of a lack of Christian values but for other reasons shaped from psychological issues?

Would it have been better if they were sexually assaulted instead?

and how better to overcome liberal psychological issues than preclude them starting at birth with Christian "love thy neighbor values".

would have been better if shooter had been trained as a Christian wherein both sexual assault and murder are prohibited by Great Commandment. 1+1=2

Good lord man, where do you come up with this stuff? Please cite where Beierle stated he did this because he wasn't a Christian.

Is this a request to establish Christianity as a national religion?

The will to abide by the commandments rests on the individual, and many fail miserably. By your logic priests would never molest kids, Christians would never kill, or cheat on their spouses etc.

Considering that white christian elites are usually the ones who do the sexual assaulting in this country. I don't think they know what sin is.

I seem to recall several accounts of Christian church officials committing sexual assaults despite loads of training and taking vows to uphold "great commandments".

Liberal psychological issues....
:lamo

Is this the same as Republican Capitalism?


If Christians conducted themselves in a manner that showed those teachings prevented them from committing all sorts of bad deeds I'd agree, but since they are as flawed as other people (or worse in some cases), your argument doesn't hold much value.

How do you know? Are you saying that people who identify themselves as Christians have never killed people?

Nope. I think people who reach the point where they think killing others is a solution for their feelings of rejection, religion isn't going to matter much one way or the other.

whoops lost again so liberals goes substance free.

Lost what? You've made an absurd assertion and haven't provided any counter points to mine. Since you stated some Christians "fall through the cracks", how does being trained as a Christian prevent this kind of thing? It's not a guarantee at all. There are plenty of moral secularists who don't shoot others or kill themselves. Your whole premise is ridiculous.

So no lonely Christians either?

The idea of a deity you never encounter outside of your mind isn't the same as the company of other people; that latter is a critical component to human happiness.
