Comments Kumtekmeon November 13, 2010 / Reply @BillSalem Thanks for the information.The emperor did buy out the Church making it into some political institution whereby it’s members think it’s their duty to dictate what goes on in the wider society. Jesus never described the churches role to be like this. It’s a pity most Christians are not aware of what they hold as the church today, which is why I put value on the REAL church, and that is the one in my heart.. BillSalem November 13, 2010 / Reply @Kumtekmeon I went to several fine art museums in Rome, recently. It became clear that the great families of Rome, those who now have important land in Rome, depended on having a cardinal in the family, if not a pope. This was reflected in the ancestral portraits of the cardinals and popes, and who painted them. The Church was the multi-national corporation of its day. The popes and cardinals, the CEO’s. It was about wealth and power. Capitalism is antithetical to Christ’s teachings. Kumtekmeon November 13, 2010 / Reply @BillSalem and by this religion became a political tool, which goes against what Jesus taught, as we now see religion dictating what happens in the wider society. It’s like mixing good with evil. Many Christians think the church we have today, was the same church in Paul’s time. BillSalem November 13, 2010 / Reply @NewTeutonicOrder1 During the First Council of Nicea, convened in 325 AD, Constantine promised the Christian bishops that he would make Christianity the dominant religion of Rome in return for a favor. The bishops delivered and so did Constantine. Christianity as a result, grew became the dominant religion of Rome. But as early as 313 AD, with the Edict of Milan, Christianity was declared to be recognized as a religion in Rome. puck44 November 13, 2010 / Reply This just shows how stupid Fox news is. hah! bananas1and2 November 13, 2010 / Reply “Where is the right to same sex marriage in the constitution?” “Where is the right to interracial marriage in the constitution, Chris?” OWNED. NewTeutonicOrder1 November 13, 2010 / Reply @xsmooochesx Okay kid, learn your history. The Romans did not spread Christianity, in fact they fought against it and were a polytheistic society. Marriage has NEVER been a union between two people. Name one “marriage.” And the Theodosian Code made into law by the Romans forbade it and anyone who partook was to be executed. Nice try, learn the facts. ZackPaslay November 13, 2010 / Reply Not conservative myself, but Ted Olson is an awesome conservative. xsmooochesx November 13, 2010 / Reply @NewTeutonicOrder1 Wow, lemme bet you’re religious and have no knowledge of history. Romans have married men before, shocker right? Those crazy Romans who spread Christianity hooked up and married other dudes. Marriage was meant from the beginning of it to be a union between two people. People have bastardized it from time to time, for awhile women were property and nothing. For awhile you could only marry someone of your religion, or color, or creed. Grow the fuck up and join the modern era.

NewTeutonicOrder1 November 13, 2010 / Reply Marriage NEVER was meant between male & male. It has & unless they gray it out enough to be forgotten – will always be between Male & Female. DoctorCataclysm November 13, 2010 / Reply It’s nice to see a real conservative on TV. joyrider137 November 13, 2010 / Reply PWNGE by Ted Olsen holocaustexpert November 13, 2010 / Reply 911 was a mossad operation. Shiruvi November 13, 2010 / Reply Ted Olson is made of win. All listen to the wisdom that flows from him. Seriously, if it came out that he was actually Jesus I wouldn’t be surprised. asianboywonder2312 November 13, 2010 / Reply Imagine “Pursuit~Cornered 2001” at #t=6m00s jslesnic November 13, 2010 / Reply olson is an excellent attorney Kevstar19 November 13, 2010 / Reply Chris Wallace is a fucking douche bag trying to act smart. Jamesscalise November 13, 2010 / Reply No Chris Wallace, not seven million, four million. Three million voted no. ismeme November 13, 2010 / Reply @mickeysears You might want something sharper to split that anal hair with. Most Americans would readily identify as the “average American” if asked, so referring to “the average American” is perfectly acceptable. It might not be accurate, but you don’t seem to have any problem using similar generalizations when it suits you. Individualism and independent thought are as common as not everywhere in the world, including the US. But it’s very American of you to think otherwise. mickeysears November 13, 2010 / Reply @ismeme I never said there are “Average American Sentiments” You keep going back to “Average American” and what they think (grouping).This can’t be measured since what’s “average” is a matter of opinion. What a poll does is collect the sentiments of individual Americans and average them out. Just what’s so hard to understand? As for the rest of the world, it’s would be a matter of the government and social overreach they have over their citizens to squash independant thought and individualism. ismeme November 13, 2010 / Reply @mickeysears So you’re saying there are average American sentiments but no average Americans in any shape or form? Is this exceptional, ostensibly unmeasurable individualism confined to Americans in your mind, or does it apply to all nationalities? mickeysears November 13, 2010 / Reply @ismeme I guess you didn’t get the joke. I’ll try and spell it out for you. There is no definition of an “Average American” There are just Americans with differing views. If you ask a leftist, rightist or centrist what an average American is, you will get a different ideas. The point of the poll comment is that, you can’t get an idea of what Average Americans think. That’s impossible. But to get an idea of the average sentiment (the thoughts) of individual Americans. No contradiction here. ismeme November 13, 2010 / Reply @mickeysears Oh please. You’ve just described how liberals treat people like groups by treating liberals as a group. Wake the hell up. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
