hysteria about nuclear-armed India? about nuclear-armed Pakistan? What worries me is a nuclear-armed USA! USA did use this kind of weapon! TWICE!
Look back a few years of history: which country is present in all of the wars involving more than one country? Yes! USA! Which country has more soldiers on foreign countries? Yes! USA! Which country has nuked more foreign countries? Yes! USA! How many civilians are killed by drone attacks? Which country has drones? Yes! USA!
STOP nuking other countries. DESTROY all your nuclear weapons. STOP invading foreign countries. STOP acting as the world police with superior morality. And then, the world will be a safer place.
I'm not a Christian, but I don't think less of FuzzyMO that he is. I agree that you, OTOH, give Christians a bad name.
It must make you feel proud, to be so certain you'll ascend bodily to heaven. Those who haven't been vouchsafed that revelation must surely beg to know, what mountaintop were you standing on when the lightning struck?
Do you think you are beloved by your god, when you're so beloved by yourself? Those who study your holy book say that pride is the deadliest of sins and the source of all others. Did not your savior say "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye."?
If you're raptured, I'll be happy to be left behind.
RxF, I most certainly would speak my mind in person. I've spent most of my adult life doing community service, helping people of all ages (from kindergarten to post-college) learn how to make the world better. A large part of that is speaking your mind (being assertive). I personally teach leadership courses all over the country. I often meet those who don't agree with me on certain topics, but that wouldn't prevent us from disagreeing agreeably.
