  1. so some psycho breaks into your house with the intent to kill you and your loved ones while committing perverse acts just because he liked your yard gnome and then saw your family and liked them too. what's the non violent option to protect your family?
  2. Dominionism seems to be getting stronger. It is a threat to liberty that is not even known or often overlooked in this country.
  3. What is your version of the lucifer myth?
  4. Peter , if I can call you that, best of luck to you and yours.
  5. A good start is to be a responsible pet owner.

  8. Leo could you explain perhaps who Hestia is in myth and to you? Why exactly do you connect with Hestia and offer devotion daily etc..?
  9. I heartily second that! You mean you don't Dance naked at night in reverence of hekate?
  10. Often, those who sit in a hall do not know The true caliber of the stranger- No man is so perfect that he may be flawless, Nor any completely worthless. All men hold both fair and foul within them. ~ The High One
  11. Hugin and Munin fly each day over the spacious earth. I fear for Hugin, that he come not back, yet more anxious am I for Munin
  12. I will miss you Dan. I have always enjoyed our discussions/arguments. I am sure we both felt like we were talking to a wall I have always admired your conviction and the strength as well as depth of your faith. I believe I have told you this many times. I am sure casual observers have at times thought we were at each others throats but I have never felt this way. You always argued your point and the issue and never tried to make it about you or I. You also shrugged off and didn't take things personally. I have always defended you to people and talked admirably of you. Especially how in addition to your strong views you at least had the knowledge to back them up. If I have ever given you the impression that I was upset with your presence on the forum I apologize. That has never been the case. Not once have I everfelt that way. Not only is it one this forum needs and is not well represented but it will be sorely missed. You have surprised me often on here and said things that I would never have believed a fundie would. You my good sir are an example to be held up to others imo. I don't expect to change your mind and I don't think I ever have anyway but I would really like for it to change in this instance. If not I wish you well and I hope you realize that you will be missed by myself and apparently others.
  13. Good questions. Hopefully they get addressed. Would not influence be covered by "in any sense?" What is the scope of this inlfuence? Can you point to where this influence can be seen?
  14. I agree many of the founding fathers (although not many of the most influential or well known ones) were influenced by their faith. However, the government is secular and the constitution is a secular document. I would agree with your assertion fully if they had not seen fit to add "in any sense" to the statement.
  15. On the contrary... As the government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian Religion.............. Treaty of tripoli
  16. As the government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian Religion.............. Treaty of tripoli Here, then, was a space of two hundred years, during which the common law was in existence, and Christianity no part of it. If it ever was adopted, therefore, into the common law, it must have been between the introduction of Christianity and the date of the Magna Charta. But of the laws of this period we have a tolerable collection by Lambard and Wilkins, probably not perfect, but neither very defective; and if any one chooses to build a doctrine on any law of that period, supposed to have been lost, it is incumbent on him to prove it to have existed, and what were its contents. These were so far alterations of the common law, and became themselves a part of it. But none of these adopt Christianity as a part of the common law. If, therefore, from the settlement of the Saxons to the introduction of Christianity among them, that system of religion could not be a part of the common law, because they were not yet Christians, and if, having their laws from that period to the close of the common law, we are all able to find among them no such act of adoption, we may safely affirm (though contradicted by all the judges and writers on earth) that Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law. ~Jefferson
