"What would Jesus do?" This quote always seems to make our professed Christian GOP politicians uncomfortable.
Perhaps they thinly perceive their hypocrisy when they vote to cut funding for programs that help the needy.
Robin, you and the GOP preach about a lack of accountability in our education system while your party has shown a historic lack of action to address the problems of the nation.
Your party stands on the sidelines hurling spitballs without offering any meaningful solutions regarding healthcare, poverty, or job creation.
How about some policies that will benefit all Americans instead of the narrow few supported by the GOP? How about some of that accountability you endlessly preach about?
"This particular scourge upon society has destroyed past civilizations that indulged in it..."
What, Sodom and Gomorrah? Wasn't that the place where the angels stayed at Lot's house and the locals wanted the "have their way" with them? Lot, in his wisdom, offered his virgin daughters to them instead?
Tell me Mr. Wall, how many civilizations have been destroyed in the name of your God? Do you consider that as an "abomination"?
Of course you don't, because it has always been acceptable in the Bible to persecute anyone who differs from you. Rape, pillage, murder, and enslavement? No problem, right?
Maximus- "Send your kids to The Baylor School like we did."
Sure everybody can afford that.
Of course your post is just another opportunity for you to post your self promoting elitist tripe.
Maximus Taurus excreta.
So what's your point hotdog. Your cookys' in the mail.
If you had bothered to keep up with the issues at Bryan College perhaps you might have a clue. Besides the fact that many of the professors have chafed at having to embrace a clarification of their loyalty oath, many of them have been moving towards a less literal interpretation of parts of the Bible.
As far as the quotes from Clarence Darrow, (and the reference by Clay of Mr. Darrow)? You do know that Bryan College was named after William Jennings Bryan who debated Mr. Darrow in the Scopes Monkey trial?
See the connection?
I note that many times you miss the subtle nuances of many of Clay's toons so, no cookie for you.
“I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure — that is all that agnosticism means.”
― Clarence Darrow
“The fear of God is not the beginning of wisdom. The fear of God is the death of wisdom. Skepticism and doubt lead to study and investigation, and investigation is the beginning of wisdom.”
― Clarence Darrow
Robin, I searched your post and I have not seen where you would make up the shortfall for doing away with this tax.
Oh, let me guess, the typical conservative shuffle of cutting taxes for the upper class will result in cutting services for everyone else.
Perhaps you could provide some statistics of the number of people running out of the state because of this tax. Also, these same people have benefited for years by not paying state income taxes.
This is the same scam and alligator tears that was perpetuated to do away with the inheritance tax which benefited the rich in the state.
But hey, we can make up the shortfall by passing on the responsibility further down the economic ladder.
Conservative - People have been getting rid of gods for thousands of years. I do rather miss Zeus, although he seemed a little temperamental at times.
Kinda like the christian god.
Conservative - Are you really so starved for attention that you have to post with gargantuan bold fonts? The same post, over and over.
Seriously, grow up.
Ted Cruz wants to eliminate Obamacare, denying millions of Americans the opportunity for health care.
Perhaps Teddy should tell everyone about his gold plated health care plan. He is covered under his wife's health care plan. She is a manager at Goldman Sacs.
Must be nice to not worry about health care or its pesky costs.
