Why did/does man create religions?


#285

I lost you. The only time I mentioned force is that politicians in our government do not force people to practice a religion. I’m not sure how that is socialist.


#286

?


#287

Why Are you denying what you posted?


#288

Why are you wanting to force service to others?


#289

I don’t know. I have heard some people opine it may have been Mrs. Clinton’s thoughts about religion when she said that deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.


#290

And no one claimed our government “forces people to practice a religion”. Strawmanfactory. .


#291

I don’t know–What say you? I’m more interested in his economic and government policies, myself. I especially care about how he handles Korea.


#292

Wait a minute. You’re not saying that evangelicals were scared of non Christian beliefs being forced on then are you? Hahahaha


#293

You dont know what is Christian about trump?


#294

It’s almost as if who we elect effects our ability to not be influenced by opposing religious views. Thanks for playing.


#295

US Military academies used to go out of their way to force their cadets to accept Christianity.

Below is only one example.

Cadets weren’t given a choice, they were shamed or forced into participating in Christian rites.


#296

Again, we are on different trains of thought. We had been talking about people being forced.

So I take it that you are against good qualities being forced into politics? I suspect you know they can’t be. We can’t even seem to insist that they be followed.


#297

Why would they be scared of that. You’ve said over and over the government isnt forcing religion on people. Wait, are you saying Hillary voters shouldnt have their voices heard? See what I did there…


#298

No we arent. We are now at a point where you are denying things you’ve said.


#299

Huh? Another strawman.


#300

Yes you said:

What service to others do you want forced?


#301

No…we didn’t like it when gay marriages WERENT ALLOWED…not that they “weren’t performed by the courts”.

Don’t be disingenuous.


#302

We are told our elected officials are public servants. Are you unfamiliar with the term? I wouldn’t be surprised if many are. Too many of our politicians go to Washington only to return with padded bank accounts for themselves and/or their spouses. (I’m a little cynical about a few of our California officials.)


#303

So how do you force it? Mandated tax returns? Should trump release his taxes?


#304

Are you talking legally? If it’s already illegal, then it’s being forced already. Otherwise, pls give an example. If they are padding bank accounts, doesnt that mean they are valuable to some people?
