Nation hasn't been perfect

  • Follow Letters

Some preachers, male and female, on television put on a show when they preach. Creflo Dollar is making Christians think they can sin and get away with it.

Matthew Hagee has been critical of people on entitlements. He should not do this because he has received part of his money from such people’s donations. Hagee has talked about young people, but he doesn’t realize he is still a young person himself, and he has a long way to go before he gets old.

Hagee, Truth in Action Ministry, CBN News, Pat Robertson of The 700 Club, Jack Van Impe, Hal Lindsey all have been prejudiced against President Obama.

The United States was not so Christian and perfect when it was created because the United States had the slave trade, and slavery for almost 100 years after it was created and segregation for almost 200 years. It took the Civil War to end slavery. Lynching used to be a part of life in the United States. So there have been worse times in the United States than what is going on today.

A lot of racism has ended in the United States, but there still are many racists left. Our present problems did not start with President Obama.

One more word about entitlements: There are almost 1 million military veterans who deserve disability entitlements but cannot get them. There are millions of civilians who deserve disability entitlements but cannot get them. I know of cases.

The United States is a great country, but it has never been perfect.

I have been an official Christian for almost 53 years.

MyFther15, there are a number of disgusting

things liberals/progressives keep doing.

Three of the most offensive are:

1. They want proof of a negative. As in, "prove you are not a racist."*

2. They denigrate the United States as though we have the worst civil rights record on the planet when it is arguably the best or darn close. (There is no way to quantify that status.)

3. They often suggest that we should never criticize bad behavior in other countries until our own record is perfect in every way.

*Actually, there is virtually NO real racism in the United States (some yes, as there is everywhere).

Racism requires that one believes that his race is superior to that of another. Holding others in contempt is more bigotry than racism.

Now, no argument, we do have an abundance of bigotry in this country. Most of it coming from progressives who believe that blacks cannot survive without government help and assistance.

They also believe that "help" should be forced on blacks rather than have them ask for it. I'm not really sure why they feel that way.

What I do know for certain, is that in a world where bigotry is perceived as racism, the true "racists" are almost all liberals.

Are you sure owensjef? I mean after all.....you said there were pictures of Herman Cain having affairs with white women....which is patently untrue....maybe you should read a book? Then maybe you could piece together a sentence that makes more sense than "Skin heads right sour Africa right" :-)

Show us the pictures. Are you saying that being at a function is the same as having an affair? After all....it was you that said there were pictures of him HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH WHITE WOMEN. Good grief. For goodness sake....just admit that you were wrong.

How about you tell us what you MEANT to type when you said "Skin heads right sour Africa right"

I'm curious why you felt it was important to mention that the women were white.....as if that somehow is different than having an affair with any other women.......interesting.

You honestly have no clue do you? Tell me something; what are the differences in Communism and Fascism? Quick, do that google search!! To actually say that Communism was the enemy of Hitler, is laughable!! Hitler WAS a Communist dictator and ANYONE who opposed him, regardless of their ideology; was his enemy. My God, the man wanted to take over all of Europe and probably the entire world. He thought himself to be a god!! Which CAN NOT go along with conservative politics or beliefs.

Fascism

Fascism is a political and economic system that exhibits strong state control of all facets of economic activity along with a strong, central state government. That sounds left-wing to me.

.
And we all know that because you are the established, go-to political expert.

And of course, at the time the attacks from the left began, he had risen to #1 in the polls (notice that polls is spelled with two l's and no e.)

Unpublished

@myfather15; "Twist scripture to fit their agenda, period. Nowhere did it say the Samaritan was an "unbeliever"."

No, he didn't say that.

So, if I take out the word "non-believer" and simply say "A Samaritan, someone hated by the Jews, takes his time and wealth and helps the man be restored to health", will that untwist the scripture for you and make you happy?

Maybe you can take your "untwisted scripture" and tell me/us why Jesus was contrasting the behavior of the Samaritan with the behavior of Jews.

I'll tell you now, you can't do it.

But if you pass up the opportunity what will people say?!

All you know and believe about your bible is what you've been told by some fundamentalist like yourself.

(And Hitler being a communist - heaven help us all...........).

Well....since you have yet to refute a single one of the comparisons of Obama to Hitler as being untrue.....why shouldn't we make the comparison, owensjef? Does the truth bother you that much?

By the way, sentences tend to end in periods, question marks, or exclamation points. The first word in a sentence is usually begun with a capital letter. The same thing goes for proper names. I learned that when I read a book.

Yeah? Well, I'm saying that Hitler was a statist, collectivist, socialist despot as in today's world.

And Hitler and Obama share many beliefs and traits, as so ably and thoughtfully posted by HA on a previous page.
