    You are a heathen (if you are not a muslim) by the definition in Islam. That word can be used for everyone and in fact you may be a good christian and end up in Muslim hell.

    So you're obviously familiar with the episode I'm referring to. I'm not using it to defend morality (where'd that come from?), I'm using it to show the basis of the mormon religion (guy 'finds' gold plates and two 'seer stones' puts them in a hat where they light up and has a friend write the translation, then can't reproduce the translation later).

    On a side note, Bush is also an admitted drug user and you're relying on him and his morality to run the country...dumb da dumb dumb dumb!

    I'm not disagreeing with WHAT you are saying/arguing, I am disagreeing with your labels of the people you are talking about. You may be attacking ideas - that is clear and not offensive to me. But you are also attacking the people behind those ideas. I have very good friends that are on polar opposites of certain issues with me. But I don't call them idiots and say they are stupid.

    If you can't just put out any opinion without being called names or ridiculed, we'd still be in the stone age. Attack the idea, not the person. I bet you spend a lot of time alone, don't you?

    Anyone else find it funny that the General Use forum has five topics - four political and one on potty training? Judging from the depths some of the exchanges on this topic has sunk too, I can certainly see the lowest common denominator. ;)

    There's a difference between used and use.

    No, actually I have many friends. One's even a Menonite who agrees with me. Certain cults really get my ire. Mormons, Jehovah's witness',etc. Any religion that comes to my door and argues with me about my belief's is on my list. I'm not bashing these religions ignorantly. I've had many discussions to come to my conclusions. And since you can only attack me on my tone that indicates that my arguments about certain dogma are indeed true.

    If you dispute valid science just because you believe it be so you are ignorant at best. These people can and have tried to change science curriculum to reflect their misconceived belief that the planet sprang from the ether 5000 years ago. These states that had the misfortune of having a majority of mentally chalenged individuals have become the laughing stock of the union and the world. These are the same people who burned Copernicus for daring to say the Earth revolved around the Sun.

    The interesting thing is that if these folks would open their minds they may see how the Big Bang and evolution actually fit into their religion as tools of God. But since it was written it can't be so. Hence my scorn and derision.

    I find it funny how some people here brand the rural or non-city people and others as the 'dumb' ones who blindly support bush, etc. Yet, if you look in the paper today you'd see loudoun, which most of the population is here in the east.. and I'd say far from rural.. supported Bush.. and not only supported Bush.. but did so at a HIGHER rate in '04 then they did in '00 no less.

    Anyone who thinks George W. Bush is stupid is not as smart as George W. Bush.

    Do these "the President is a dope who's going to destroy the world" posts cause anyone else to have flashbacks to 1984? Because I swear I've heard this song before.

    Quote from Homer:
    "I think he's highlighting that the President, which one can argue is one of the most powerful, and stressful, jobs in the world makes less then a trial lawyer who profits off of the election. The president also makes much less then Movie stars and professional athletes. Makes you wonder about priorites."

    Don't forget how much a former president gets paid per speech once they're out of office!!! It puts athletes and movie stars to shame!!
