Wow. That obviously impacted you a lot more deeply than it did me, as I have no memory of that. Before you come back with "how convenient for you," understand that I say this sincerely: I apologize for however I've wronged you in past conversations. I honestly don't remember that exchange, so I won't try to refute what you're saying. I'll just say I'm sorry.


Didn't really impact me at all, I just have a good memory and thought it was funny if nothing else...

It was nothing personal, so there's no reason to apologize...you've never wronged me.


That's kind of you. Thank you.

What book was it, btw?

Really ? That's your examples of "faith based" laws ? Gay marriage and booze ? :lol: NONE of which are federal laws btw.

Try being gay, or drinking in a Muslim theocracy and see whats happens. Those are religious based laws. :idea:


I posted two examples when you said there were none. There are more, and you apparently are being intentionally obtuse. Throw abortion in there too...

And boy, there's really a reading comprehension issue with you guys today...

I didn't say federal law. I mentioned Congress and laws...which applies to State and local government as well. Please point out in my post where I mentioned Federal laws...again...I'll wait...

This has nothing to do with Muslim countries and their bullshit laws...but if anything, that proves my point that laws should not in any way be based on fantasy.

I don't think wearing someone out equals winning unless you're running a marathon :lol:

So yeah no one changed their minds and there are no prizes for the "winners". :)

One thing on religion trying to control the masses I found interesting. When I was studying art history, the topic of gargoyles on the cathedrals were discussed. They were used to scare people to come to church. I found that rather interesting to be honest. Not trying to fuel the argument, but just rather throwing in something that captivated my thought at the time.

Interesting. That's nothing I've ever read ~ most accounts I've seen say they were created to scare off evil spirits, a continuation of European pagan practices. :idk: :hmm:

I can argue/debate like an MFer and never take it personally, even if it is made personal. Unless someone brings my family into it, I'm good. I don't care what anyone says about me. (I know you would never...just stating how I feel about debating on the internets in general)

We were debating something, I don't even remember what...but you said I was wrong because it wasn't in the DSM-5. I then found it in the DSM-5 and posted the quote and you dismissed it and said you were gonna believe what you were gonna believe anyway :lol: :lol: :lol:

Churches still use gargoyles today.

This would be a giant mess in no time.

Government gets a taste of church revenue, wants more, promotes religion.

Government officials loyal to one church or another figure out ways for their own to take advantage while putting the screws to others.


Yes there is a cost to letting some tax revenue slip away but linking religious activity to secular government budgets is just asking for trouble.

Oh as if that doesn't happen already??? Ever heard of "value voters" and their superpacks?? :rofl:

Please tell me with a straight face that religion has NO influence in govt.

Also, true separation of church and state happens when churches cease to have a special tax shelter just for being religious.


Donating towards a political candidate vs. paying taxes are two different things. We're also talking millions vs. billions of dollars.

Besides, I don't think political donations are deductable. At least most of the charities I give to have separate line items for donations to their PAC that I almost always ignore.

There is no rule that churches can't attempt to influence the government. The first amendment restrains the government side of things only.

All I can offer in response is that if I did indeed say that, I was way out of line.

Again, wow. I'm stunned, to be honest. My wife is a music therapist by training, and I would not dismiss the DSM-5 as being irrelevant, ever. At least I wouldn't these days, and don't remember having done so in the past. Disturbing.

Thanks for the details.

Oh, that's definitely not a word for word quote lol...but it was close enough. You definitely didn't dismiss it as irrelevant, as a matter of fact...you thought it was NOT in the DSM-5, which you used as a reason for your side of the debate.

The argument to go tax exempt was brought about b/c, at the time, it was perceived the church had "too much influence on government". That's a bit of a misnomer actually as the church has pretty much always been tax exempt. But, over the decades, the influence was deemed detrimental to the general good of the nation. It simply didn't reflect the growing progressive mindset.

In the very early days of our country schools, orphanages, hospitals, the poor etc. were dealt with -at least primarily- thru' the church. All fine and good when the 'powers that be' kept to their respective roles. Church has a symbiotic relationship with the immediate community and the governing municipality had a similar type of relationship over the community at large.

As communities grew and matured, they're were changes in idiology (social, political and even spiritual) and becoming more diverse.
That meant the municipality grew with it...but not so much the local church who felt they've invested so much into 'their' community. (even if that community is changing).

Simply put, by the 1950s the municipalities (and an a larger scale the feds) had had enough of the churches influence. One way to 'control' that was to make them a 501c3. IF you look up the definition of any 501c3 you'd find that they are NOT allowed to publically side with or endorse or give monies to any political candidate.
When it came to politics, the church MUST stay publically neutral.

It is in fact the government that is (trying) to keep the church out of politics. Of course they're are loop holes and of course the members of the church are free to vote their conscience...but the "Church" isn't allowed to get involved.

If you want the church to get involved in politics freely? Take the 501c3/tax exemption away. :evil:

You really wanna bitch about tax exemption? What of the NFL? :freak: YES they do good, but so does most of my neighborhood. They get a meager right off at best if they donate to the goodwill or whatever. They get nothing for donating their time to food banks/soup kitchens.

But the NFL gets exemption for doing the same (on a much larger scale sure but...)?

There are still states that don't allow gay marriage. Is it because it's "yucky" or is it because their bible says it's "wrong"?

There's one glaring example...

Toss in alcohol sales being prohibited on Sundays, etc., and it can add up.

I still drank in Muslim countries. They still sell it. American blue laws are Christian based bullshit. Same reason we outlaw prostitution.

We are only 12 days into the new year and I'm going to go ahead and nominate this for thread of the year. :lol:

When someone on this board does a HNGD thread most of the comments are civil and for the most part congratulatory. You won't see too many "Strats are pieces of shit" or "Les Pauls are for fags" comments. Yet Chris does what is basically the same kind of thread for his new career and about half the board comes in to tell him his life's work is shit. :lol: I love this place!

Wouldn't it be better just to congratulate Chris on his accomplishment and save the debate for later? :idk:

With that I'll just say congratulations Chris! I'm glad for you that you've found something to dedicate your life to and to be passionate about that has nothing to do with string gauges and pickup height. Way to go and I hope it brings you much happiness. :thu:

If there is one thing I believe in, it is that every man should be able to waste their life doing whatever they want, believe in, or whatever. As long as it doesn't affect me. Right now it does since politics in my country is wrapped up in theology. Having said that, to each his own.

Just sayin'.


In history when people didn't understand the world around them, they invented religion(s). Lots of them.
