PARIS — The man Marine Le Pen chose to lead her far-right party while she ran for the presidency has been forced to step down because he praised a Holocaust denier and expressed doubt that the Nazis used poison gas to murder Jews.

In a 2000 interview, the man she named as the National Front’s interim leader, Jean-François Jalkh, said Zyklon B, the gas used to kill millions of Jews during the Holocaust, would have been “impossible” to use in “mass exterminations.”

Ms. Le Pen called the outrage directed at Mr. Jalkh a “defamation” on Friday morning.

The negative news, however, was somewhat offset by day’s end, when Ms. Le Pen got an endorsement from a defeated right-wing presidential candidate, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, who won less than 5 percent of the vote nationwide.

“Marine Le Pen is not on the far right to me,” he said.

Ms. Le Pen is one of two candidates to advance to the second round of the presidential race, and announced on Monday that she would temporarily step down as National Front leader to focus on defeating the independent centrist Emmanuel Macron, considered to be the favorite in the election on May 7.

[...]

Ms. Le Pen herself prompted an outcry earlier in the presidential campaign when she said that France had not been responsible for the roundup of Parisian Jews during World War II in an event known as the Vel’ d’Hiv.

But her efforts to buff her party’s image were complicated this week by a furor over comments that Mr. Jalkh made in 2000. During an interview, a doctoral student, Magali Boumaza, had asked him about the gas chambers. Mr. Jalkh replied that he was not a “negationist” but that he had read the works of a “trustworthy revisionist”: Robert Faurisson, a former professor of history at the University of Lyon who has been convicted of inciting hatred and racial discrimination and who has often been cited by the more extreme far-right elements.

Mr. Jalkh, who once took part in a ceremony commemorating the death of Philippe Pétain, the leader of the Vichy government that collaborated with Nazi Germany, said in the interview that he had been “surprised” by the “rigor “ and “conscientiousness” of Mr. Faurisson’s research.

sandraleesmith46:
The "simple" fact is that (homosexuals) do prey on children; maybe not all physically, but there are other equally or even more destructive ways to do so. And you can't NOT! You can only present your own dysfunctionality to them.

Jenny Ondioline:
You're welcome to present your sources. I know homosexuals and all they're interested in is living private quiet lives. They aren't interested in children in the slightest. I don't know why if you were a homosexual you'd be all fired up to talk to kids about it, it makes no sense.

sandraleesmith46:
I know homosexuals too; and that's the only way they increase their numbers; hence their power; that's why!

Jenny Ondioline:
You can't seriously be saying that homosexuals "recruit". They don't recruit children and they don't recruit adults. Because you CAN'T. Sexuality isn't a choice you make, it's the deal you are dealt. You can't convince anyone to "turn into" a homosexual, because no one can change their orientation. This is basic science.

sandraleesmith46:
Wrong; homosexuality is a LEARNED behavioral disorder; it's not natural in any sense of the term. Ergo, they have to recruit to increase their numbers.

[Dammit Weidmann just pick a bigotry so I can file your quotes correctly]

“White male privilege” is a rhetorical incantation on the Left (and regarded as within the bounds of possibility by many cucks on the Right) that, like most leftoid tenets, is at complete odds with the truth, revealing more the egotistic psychological state of the projecting chanter than it does any observable reality.

It would not only be more truthful to say there is no “white male privilege”, it would be closer still to the truth to say that there’s female privilege and nonWhite privilege.

The religion of Equalism, and its supporting catechism Race and Sex Denialism, has real world consequences. Feminism and antiracism impose palpable, manifest, spiritual and material costs on society, on men, and most pointedly on White men.

Joe Franklin provides a useful list of the ways Equalism in the virulently framed forms of “women’s rights” and “anti-discrimination” have resulted in burdensome and often malicious government policies that stack the deck in favor of women and nonWhites and against men and White men.

...

That’s a lot of female and nonWhite privileging (read: favoritism based largely on a purposeful misconstruing of the nature of the sexes and races and of the biofeedback loops governing their interactions). When does the college course to address this institutional discrimination against White men get added to the syllabus?

Maybe the Fundamental Premise should be revised and expanded to account for the compulsion of White leftoids to tilt the playing field in the favor of nonWhites at the expense of affordable White family formation, and then to ridicule, ostracize, deprive, and even jail any White man who complains about his disenfranchisement. Ah one term comes to mind…Anarcho-Tyranny.

What’s amazing is that White men still succeed in America despite the government’s boot on their necks and the handicapping of their economic and social opportunities. Now imagine what White men could do if they had a government that looked out for them and protected their interests.

You don’t really have to imagine it. White men had that country not too long ago. They turned America into the greatest power in human history.

A man with a machete who attacked a Transylvania University student in a campus coffee shop Friday first asked people about their political affiliations, a witness said.

The assailant, thought to be a former student, was armed with a machete and knives, Lexington Police Chief Mark Barnard said. The university canceled classes for the rest of the day.

The victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, fire department Battalion Chief Joe Best said.

The victim was safe, and her family “is with her at UK Hospital,” Transylvania President Seamus Carey said.

The assailant also was taken to a hospital to be evaluated, Barnard said. A third person was treated at the scene.

Tristan Reynolds, a student who was inside the campus café where the attack occurred, said about 30 to 40 people were inside at the time.

“A guy came in, banged something, a hatchet or an ax, on the table and said ‘the day of reckoning has come,’” Reynolds said. “He asked somebody what their political affiliation was, they said ‘Republican’ and the guy said ‘you are safe.’ And then I realized what was going on and started getting people out.”

“We started to scatter and then very, very quickly, campus security was getting everybody sheltered and secure,” Reynolds said. “They were very on it.”

Campus security officers subdued the assailant quickly, preventing further injury, Barnard said.

Security officers tackled the suspect, Transylvania spokeswoman Michele Gaither Sparks said.

Students were alerted about the attack by text messages through the campus’ T-Alert system, Sparks said.

The coffee shop, inside the Glenn Building, has an open floor plan and is a popular spot for students to get coffee and breakfast, Reynolds said.

He is the editor-in-chief of the Transylvania student newspaper, The Rambler, and he was with newspaper staff at the café.

We cannot be politically correct in today's society. We need to be blunt and hate the things that Our Lord Jesus Christ hates, and love the things that He loves. People need the honest truth in our World, and if Jesus was alive today He would be about straight talk, no sugar coating or beating around the bush.

As Christians we must be intolerant to the things God is intolerant towards! We must refuse to allow people to follow false teachings that promote heaven when the end result is hell!

We know the truth, we must be bold & blunt.

Roy Moore today announced he is resigning from his position as the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court to run for the United States Senate.

"I'll stand for the rights and liberties of the people," Moore announced to cheering supporters and to reporters gathered at the State Capitol.

"My position has always been God first, family then country," Moore said. "I share the vision of President Donald Trump to make America great again," Moore said.

He later added, "Before we can make America great again, we've got to make America good again."

Moore said a key to making that happen is making sure the federal government stays within constitutional bounds.

"We've got to understand that getting back to the Constitution, getting back to its restraints, are what we need in this country to make it great again."

Moore said he has submitted his papers to resign from the state Supreme Court, a position he was suspended from for the remainder of his term.

Gov. Kay Ivey appointed Lyn Stuart chief justice. Stuart had served as acting chief justice since Moore's suspension. Ivey will now be able to appoint a new associate justice to give Alabama's highest court its full nine members.

Justice Tom Parker said today he will seek the chief justice seat in the 2018 primary election.

"Alabama is a conservative state. We revere the Constitution and the Rule of Law. And I believe our courts are the battleground for our God-given rights as free people," Parker said. "Please pray with me as I take this step, and thank you for standing with me as I continue to stand for the God-given principles that remain the foundation of the freedoms we cherish as Alabamians."

Don't be deceived my friend, if you believe that you have to do as little as give a cup of water to someone to be saved, you will burn in Hell for all eternity. The blood of Christ is what takes our sins away (not just the death of Christ), and ANY self-righteous efforts on our part is a total rejection of Christ's work of redemption.

Earlier this month, the Texas chapter of the anti-LGBTQ hate group MassResistance hosted a “pro-family conference” featuring a variety of anti-LGBTQ activists like Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, Brian Camenker of MassResistance, and Robert Oscar Lopez, who runs the Texas chapter.

Sharon Arkme, who claimed that she was a victim of anti-Christian persecution when she was denied certification in a Master’s program she had enrolled in at Texas State University “because I would not agree with their LGBT agenda,” told attendees that LGBTQ advocates are warring against “Christ and Christians” and “brainwashing our children.”

“I did not realize the full agenda of the radical left,” Armke told the audience. “They are in a war with Christ and Christians, whether we realize it or not. They are not content with society and Christians treating them with outreach, courtesy and respect that should be given to any other human being just because they are human. They want us to approve their behavior. They will not stop until they dominate.”

“They intend, and they are very successful so far, in brainwashing our children to believe that sodomy is right and good,” she continued. “We are trying to show parents what is happening to our children and, excuse me if I say this, we should be screaming bloody murder in the streets. We should be screaming bloody murder in the streets, this is not right! … Those teachers that do this, that teach sodomy to little children, many people call them child abusers and I agree.”

“I learned the hard way the true agenda of the radical left, it’s domination of our children and our culture,” Armke fumed, eventually growing so upset that she couldn’t even finish her remarks and simply declared “may God have mercy on us” as she walked off the stage.

The Cult of Taylor Swift is a false religion reaching its way across the United States of America and the rest of the Western world. It is based on the presumption that the acceptable moral teachings are against the Lord Jesus Christ and for pornography, lust, fornication, paganism, self love, drunkenness, and also rejection of Biblical truths and sound Scriptural doctrine. Taylor Swift is the evil demonic agent responsible for this utterly atrocious exercise of feminism and socialism.

TIL that 35% of men report at least some degree of likelihood of raping if they could be assured they wouldn't be caught or punished.

Pretty sure its like 99% under the right circumstances.

War is a little different, you don't know if your gonna live to see tomorrow, the woman are part of the people trying to kill you, and rape is a tool of dominance, your scared you may die and raping the enemy is a way to cope and say that your in control. I'm not saying I condone it but it's way different then, "Yo that bitch is smoking, I'd rape her ass if I wouldn't get caught".

[Submitter's note: This is from appeals case No. 06-11-00112-CR, the document contains material that suggests Carson was in a controlling relationship, but the analysis in the document does not suggest that she was mentally ill.]

Jesseca Bain Carson was convicted of capital murder, as a party to the murder, of her thirteen-month-old child by her boyfriend while he, over a period of thirty hours of physical torture, attempted to exorcise the demon he claimed resided within the child. Carson was sentenced to life without possibility of parole.

[...]

Over a period of thirty hours, Carson’s live-in boyfriend, Blaine Keith Milam, murdered Carson’s daughter while purportedly exorcising the demon that he believed possessed her.

[...]

Carson believed their apartment was possessed by evil spirits, so they moved in with Milam’s mother. Carson later became convinced that Milam was possessed by an evil spirit based on his expressions, tone of voice, and “something that wasn’t what I knew Blaine to be.” Milam explained that after the demon came into him, he could “talk to God,” and he said Carson was causing this by lying to him. But during all this time when Milam was demon possessed, he was absolutely fine with Amora. According to Carson, Milam loved Amora and was “wonderful with her.”

[...]

Carson asked Milam if there was something they could do and Milam said God would show him how to do an exorcism.

As a result of the “exorcism” conducted by Milam, Amora suffered innumerable injuries that led to her death. Forensic evidence showed the child was beaten so severely that the multitude of fractures to her skull connected with each other like a jigsaw puzzle, and her brain was torn and severely damaged. An arm and leg had spiral fractures indicating they were twisted in two, her torso was either struck by a blunt object or squeezed until the ribs and sternum broke, and her body (neck, chest, abdomen, buttocks, both elbows, both forearms, both feet, right arm, left shoulder, left upper arm, left hand, right thigh, and left knee) was riddled with no less than
twenty-four distinct bite marks. Her head and face were so scraped and bruised that all the discrete injuries combined into “one giant injury.” Her liver was torn, and her vaginal and anal orifices were so torn that the vagina and rectum were actually connected, an injury the forensic examiner had never seen before. The underside of her tongue was lacerated from blunt force trauma. She was also strangled. Because of all the injuries she sustained, it was not possible to determine which one was the final injury, and no specific, singular cause of death was determinable. Forensic testimony reflected that several of the injuries standing alone would have each been fatal. Police were called several hours later; when they arrived, the child was entirely stiff and in rigor

Carson concluded that the child was like “Chucky” or “Pet Sematary” (horror movies) when the “boy dies and comes back to life all evil and stuff” because the child was “biting Blaine to where it was drawing blood on his hands.” After Milam returned to the child, he took a picture of her and gave it to Carson. One of the child’s eyes was stretched and “like warped down.” Carson heard horrible cries from the child as Milam was attempting the exorcism. Once, he left the door open, and Milam told Carson the child ran out. Carson went into the back bedroom, and Milam told her that the child was under the bed. Milam ordered Carson to leave the bedroom. According to Carson, when she saw Amora, the child was not harmed. Milam told Carson that God told him the child got the hammer and was hitting herself on the head. Carson, acknowledging that she saw her child during this time, stated, “I saw her, but the first couple of times, he didn’t -- I didn’t want to see her.” She thought it was not really her child, but the “demon possessing her or whatever.” They placed the child in a car seat and drove to Wal-Mart. Milam got out and went into Wal-Mart and Carson waited until he returned and drove back
home.

Carson and Milam agreed that he was tempted to sell his soul to the devil and thereby gain the child’s release from the demonic possession. Milam finally said that might be required of him, but Carson urged him not to be trapped by the devil that way. Milam agreed and went back into the bedroom with the baby to resume the exorcism. When asked if Milam told her how God had told him to actually do the final exorcism that sent the child to heaven, Carson answered that he did not tell her, but that she did not ask. “I just let him go in there, and heard the demon cry out and scream out . . . . I heard a lot of banging.” At one point, Milam told Carson he used a rope to tie up the child to still the demon. Carson told Milam she would rather the child “go to heaven now than spend a life with Satan having her soul.” The child was left in a hole in the bathroom floor.

Quote# 126679

Some of you can't seem to get with the right person because you have too many evil spirits attached to your life.

These evil spirits latched onto you through the people from your past that you slept with - the ones you got into long-term relationships with - and even from those 'bi-curious' sessions that many of you have dabbled in.

All of those things produce spiritual baggage and residue.

You may have also inherited those evil spirits from family ties and ancestral connections that stretch back several generations.

These spirits also entered your life when you went to visit that psychic - or the time you played with the Ouija board until the planchette piece started moving around on its own. In fact, if you've ever dabbled or partook in any type of occult activity:

*horoscopes, palm-reading, tarot cards, playing the Charlie-Charlie game, playing bloody Mary, seances, having a past-life regression, doing yoga, doing popular occult ritual dances like 'The Nay-Nay,' allowing someone to practice reiki on you, talking with the dead, trying to cast a love spell on another person, Wicca, voodoo, Santeria, or any other type of witchcraft - chances are you've already summoned an evil spirit into your life - perhaps even more than one!

And this could be one of the biggest reasons why you keep having certain recurring problems or struggles that never seem to go away or get resolved.

Here's a wisdom key for you:

-----> Whenever there's a strong recurring problem or struggle in your life, look for the spiritual root. Because 9 times out of 10 there is one! <-------

These things are all traps designed by Satan to mess your life up. They're like poisoned candy to a child - innocent looking and sugar-coated on the outside. But the long term effects will be pain, agony and worse.

Evil spirits are real. And Satan in his cleverness has most people convinced that they're not. Yet the effects of these demonic beings can be easily felt and seen in the lives of those who are plagued with them.

One of the main effects of being plagued by demonic activity is the inability to hold down, get into or to maintain a Godly relationship - one that especially leads to marriage.

Since most normal healthy adults prefer companionship with the opposite sex, this has become a special area of focus for demonic activity.

Demons will use people to come into your life who look promising on the surface - but they're really satanic assignments that will waste your time, frustrate your hopes and leave you broken and feeling hopeless on the inside.

Some of you are dealing with the effects of this right now while reading this. You're having difficulty sleeping. Your appetite is gone. Family and friends can't help. And you're in a very dark place inside your soul right now.

I pray that the Light of Jesus Christ will illuminate your dark situation right now as you continue reading these words!

What you're going through is evidence of demonic activity in your life. And you need to break free so you can live for God with power, passion and integrity.

God has many wonderful blessings in store for your life. It's His good pleasure to spoil His children with the very best gifts. But first you must deal with the presence of those unwanted spiritual attachments.

Or else, instead of seeing blessings you'll only see more frustration and dashed hopes.

I wrote an ebook that deals specifically with what to do when you cannot seem to break free from the invisible power that's holding you back from obtaining relationship success. It's titled 'Hedonism: Destroying Demonic Sexual Strongholds.' And it's available for download RIGHT NOW.

This ebook is very special - for it is packed with spiritual dynamite that will obliterate the workings of any evil spirit in your life.

By the time you finish reading and utilizing the info in this ebook, demons will want to get as far away from you as possible. Because you will have become a spiritual tsunami - able to wreck the plans of satan in your life through the power of Jesus Christ!

To download the ebook and begin your freedom from spiritual bondage, click the link below right now.

I speak by faith by declaring today is the first day of your new-found freedom in Christ. I pray that you finish what has now begun in your life. God bless.

people seem to forget humans are vicious savage territorial creatures, if we can get away with it we will, i don't believe anyone that says 'why would i kill someone?' as some succint excuse to remain the moral one... we are animals, we have instincts to mark, claim, and kill to protect that claim... someone, an 'other' that is completely identical to us that believes they ARE us as much as i do... violence and primal instinctive urges are inevitable... many a philosopher has pretty much already stated the natural state of humans is wanting to kill each other simply because anyone besides 'me', as in the conscious 'me' that i am now, will at some point try to control me, therefore to prevent that, i must kill them... this clone-issue is just an extension of that, i cannot control them that is me, therefore to ensure my life is mine, i must kill them...

as someone that is married, as you seem actually interested in people taking this seriously with actual value put in, yes, there is a difference... children and spouses go back to that 'claim' bit of our instinct, if someone else, another me or not, tries to claim my husband... that's reason enough for me to brutally end them... in fact it is my connection to him that i value more then most things in life that preserving it would be reason enough for me to kill in the first place... this 'other' would know and think this too, thus a bloody war between us is on the horizon... how this plays out and how it ends would further define us as separate beings, one the victor, one the scorned... this would likely cause a lot of animosity and result in further conflict until one of us is dead or submits... more then likely dead...

At what point is killing/hurting something wrong?So let me rephrase the decision, what is okay to kill or hurt in situations where equally valuable lives are not at stake? Or in other words, at what point does life hold value or is life sacred?



This is going to be difficult for me to articulate. O_O. Not the best with them word thingies.

I believe that a majority of any group decides what is right or wrong when killing. As an example: If the majority of the people in the group you belong to decide that killing all people with mental illness is okay, then it is okay.

The majority decides when killing is right or wrong.

I don't think things will get better. Afterall, no matter where in the world you go, the situation is the same. The issue isn't the media, it's height. Yes, Asian-American guys are only 4% shorter than whites...yes that's only 6cm - less than the length of your little finger. Still, the fact remains that people are shallow. Huge portions of Asian guys won't be able to attract non-Asian women and it's certainly very obvious that huge chunks of Asian women want nothing to do with Asian guys

To think the situation will get better is just wishful thinking, in my opinion. As far as I'm aware, the only place where the situation with Asians/non-Asians is respectable is countries in South America like Peru - places in which people are the same height as Asians. White countries? Shit. Black countries? Shit. Arab countries? Shit. Singapore/Malaysia etc with Indians competing with Chinese guys? Shit. Heck, even in Asian countries, wmaf can often be 5-100x more common than amwf. South America is the only place where Asians are competing as equals, unfortunately.

Here’s a thought experiment about the consequences of runaway globohomoism and the post-employment future that mass automation will usher.

Imagine robot tech advances so that in a future not far off 99% of present-day jobs are rendered useless. In this post-employment techtopia, only the top 1% have meaningful jobs. This 1% would include the superbrains who design the robots and code the AI, plus their real estate agents. (Don’t scoff; Amazon already has plans for cashier-less supermarkets that record the point-of-sale via your phone.)

The growing wealth and income inequality is a clue that we’re already well on the way to this post-employment economy.

Yeah, yeah, I can hear the libertardians…”new jobs will be created”. But what if they’re not? What if the new jobs have a 150 IQ barrier to entry? So let’s stipulate 99% unemployment. How do all those jobless people buy the shit that the 1% make with their robot armies?

My best guess is that the government will provide a guaranteed basic income, paid for by the 1%ers in taxes collected. The sub-150 IQ plebs will use their Fed-provided income stipend to pay back the 1%ers what they have lost in taxes to the government. A closed loop feedback system is created, in which no new money beyond that needed to match any population growth (unlikely….a post-employment economy is also a post-fertility sexual market) is minted for circulation (at this point paper money will be obsolete).

The government prints money (rather, electronically fills bank accounts) for the plebs, who pass that money to the oligarchs, who return that money back to the government. The system is only soluble if the plebs actually spend their GBI instead of saving it. Then of course there’s the wild card of popular revolt and guillotines, this time with the added twist of Skynet to protect the robotocracy managers from their inability to fully reconfigure human nature.

So the question becomes: is a post-employment economy the same as a post-fiat economy?

Sometimes, I think to myself that it would just be a whole lot easier to give in and become a liberal.

Let's face it, being a modern liberal is a lot easier than defending the Constitution, critical social institutions, religion, or capitalism. It's also a lot easier to give in to an ideology where I no longer have to be responsible for my actions or decisions, since, if I merely agree with liberalism, nothing else really matters. It's much easier to believe what I'm told to believe and to do what I'm told to do. Ignoring personal responsibility is so freeing, plus, there are many benefits to becoming a liberal:

1) No matter how stupid I may sound, other liberals, and especially the media will never question my intelligence.

2) I can now claim group status with any oppressed group I want to, and gain government benefits and entitlements just by virtue of my claim. I can also say whatever I want to about my chosen group and be treated as if I were a spokesman...er...spokesperson for all. Anyone who disagrees with my status in the group becomes a racist, even if I'm white.

3) I no longer have to give to charity, saving myself a lot of money in the process, as I can now just tell rich people to pay more taxes to support government programs that will benefit me. Hence, I can feel compassionate and superior without really having to do anything myself.

4) I can now take the moral high ground on every political issue by telling anyone who disagrees with me that he or she is a racist.

5) I can now insult and demean people with impunity, refuse to hear or allow any dissenting argument, and still feel open minded. After all, everyone else but liberals are haters and don't deserve to be heard.

6) I'll now be able to rip on America for all of its injustices. I can feel free to burn its flag. I can demand reparations for poor communist countries because of America's long history of imperialism. And, best of all, I can still be more patriotic than anyone else.

7) I can start using abusive language, dropping the f-bomb into my everyday language, because being crass is part of liberal culture. Besides, I've always wanted to get a good string of obscenities into my conversation, especially while teaching political science. Being liberal gives me the perfect opportunity to unleash my pent-up profanity.

8) I can ignore the Bible and insult others and still consider myself a Christian, because my God is completely loving and forgiving of everyone but conservative haters.

9) I'll now be extolled by my fellow liberals for my vast courage when I stand up in the middle of a group of us to say something that we all believe anyway.

10) I'll be able to ride around in my private jet and own a mansion, all the while talking about how much everyone needs to cut down their carbon footprint, without being called a hypocrite.

11) I can make gobs of money in the entertainment industry (where I've always wanted to be) and travel around the country telling people how evil capitalism is.

12) I'll be able to call women sluts and whores, as long as they are conservative. All of my new feminist friends will also agree with me and applaud my courage.

13) I can now join several social movements and get excused from teaching classes in order to attend important rallies. I plan on protesting against KFC (because I never really liked eating there anyway), and, of course, I'll join the Occupy Wall Street group because corporate fat cats owe me for all the time I've worked and not gotten rich.


In short, I could easily become a liberal because, I want my debts paid off. I want my food stamps and healthcare for free. I want my pension paid. As a conservative, the government just isn't doing enough to help me. So, let's all goodbye to conservatism in order to get my share. It's only fair, right?

Jenny Ondioline:
It's a curious thing about you, Royce. With everyone who disagrees with you, you thank them over and over for things they neither said nor did, and you do it over and over which is dishonest on a huge level and we know what your God has to say about bearing false witness. Has He given you permission to lie so wantonly?

My statement was "At the end of the day consenting adults means consenting adults. That doesn't mean I support incest." This you find contradictory. How is it contradictory? I DON'T support incest, but you seem to think my disapproval isn't enough, that I need to be waving placards around and writing letters of complaint or something. Consenting adults, by which I mean adults and not 13-year olds, are free to do as they like as long as no one's being abused against their will.

Please don't compare the Jews of the Holocaust with my refusal to get in the faces of people who practice incest. If I saw enough incest going on in this world to make noise about it we might have more to talk about, but I don't know of anyone who practices it. OK?

"Get off this Christian page and STOP TROLLING!!!"
How about acting more like a Christian, Royce? And I'm not trolling. I have a right to disagree with you when you say something I consider ridiculous. And I don't believe in Satan so no, you'll just have to get used to the idea that I'm not going to introduce any supernatural elements to this discussion.

And the rest is more proselytizing and threats of a hellfire I don't believe in, so we'll leave it at that.

Reply from Royce E. Van Blaricome:
Tell ya what, why don't you count up the number of "Likes" and see who has more folks disagreeing with who. Oh, and look up the word "everyone" in the Dictionary too Troll. And ya might as well look up "honesty" while you're at it because ya ain't gotta clue what that is either.

Your statements are right there for all to see. You do support incest by your own words. And, while you think you don't, it just goes to show how deluded you are but that's to be expected by someone who has no clue what they believe or why.

"Consenting adults, by which I mean adults and not 13-year olds"
But that's the LAW in some states and you said you support the LAW. You really are mixed up! I understand though. It's hard to keep your story straight when you have no moral compass. And you still haven't given an answer for why it's ok if it's 16, or 13, or 10 or no age at all - so long as it's the LAW.

"How about acting more like a Christian, Royce?"
How many times do we have to cover the same ground? YOU have NO clue what a Christian is! So I'll take that with the due consideration it deserves. Here, how about this: You wicked viper that is just like a white-washed sepulcher full of dead men's bones. Wanna take a guess who said that?

You ARE trolling.

And frankly, it doesn't really matter whether or not you believe in Satan or not. You belong to him. Just like it doesn't matter if you believe in the Lake of Fire or not because you'll be spending ALL Eternity in the Lake of Fire with him.

"But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” (Rev 21:8)

"You can "discuss things from a Christian and scriptural view," but that doesn't excuse you from having to accept facts, even if those facts disagree with scripture."

the FACTS are that scripture is inerrant ..... that the truth is measured by scripture and nothing else ..... and there is no higher authority than the truth and scripture ...... science is BELOW the truth and your FACTS are meaningless without an OBJECTIVE STANDARD to measure them by .......... and i am sorry to tell you ..... "PEER REVIEW" .......... IS NOT an objective standard .............

You are incorrect, this Nation was founded as a Christian Nation, laws were enacted, Courts showed in countless cases this is what the First Amendment was about, which was that no one religion would rule America like in England at the time, or sort of ruled. The United States Suprement Court in 1963 in case of School District of Abington Township v. Schempp states Secularism is unconstitutional prefering those who do not believe over those who do believe...it is the duty of government to deter nonbelief religions....facilities of government cannot offend religious principles. Additionally, the constitutions of the first 13 states wrote you had to be Christian to be in office....this is all based upon the ideal that morality keeps a government prosperous and free.....

[OP of "Why did the East Germans not attempt to liberate their brethren from imperialist West Germany like the DPRK attempted in the Korean Peninsula? And why does Germany today occupied by imperialists?"

Why does Germany allow itself to be a colony of imperialist Americans?
