You can't really be surprised by the oxymoron that is the "religious right". I'm not religious myself, but I know enough of the Bible to know that most of the people that thump their Bibles the hardest would not have been down to die the kind of terrible deaths that most of the 12 disciples and most of the apostles suffered; they would abandon their faith in a heartbeat if the stakes ever got that high. They claim to be Christians while picking and choosing the portions of scripture they want to apply and obey. It's no surprise that some of the most hate filled people on planet earth are strict adherents of one form of sky worship or another.

Ghandi once said: "I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ". That quote makes me laugh every time I read it because it is incredibly true.

But yeah, most people would not have a problem with "entitlements" if those they deemed unworthy did not also get said "entitlements".

I'm actually surprised it took this long for someone to make a generic Christian-bashing post.

Is the tinderbox growing up?

Cute little anecdotal story you have there, but unless you can post some charts and graphs, and maybe a quote or two from a peer reviewed article, with links to the original source material, I'm afraid I can't be expected to take this all that seriously.

the difference is he's not making a sweeping generalization with his anecdote. it's a story for the sake of bringing up discussion.

if he said "my uncle is a republican moocher, therefore all republicans are actually moochers" you'd have an excellent point. but he did not.

sorry to derail...

A good quote but it may not be something Gandhi ever said...

It's not generic; I respect true Christians i.e. people who are like Christ; most of the "religious right" are more like the Pharisees that harassed and ultimately killed Jesus. If you adhere to the tenets of your faith, there is no need to take offense. If the shoe fits and you are another hate filled hypocrite who points out the specks in other people's eyes while ignoring the log in your own eye.....then by all means wear the shoe.

The people bitching about "entitlements" while they themselves benefit from entitlements are like people who think their poo doesn't stink. It's a playground mentality displayed by children.

How does this enlightened theory of yours work when the daddy WAS the working class?

If an asset is left to a spouse or a (Federally recognized) charitable organization, the tax usually does not apply. For deaths occurring up to 2012, up to $5,000,000 can be passed from an individual upon his or her death without incurring federal estate tax.[2]

lol you think you could both face an inheritance tax AND be a part of the working class. lllllloooooollllllll. stop talking about things you don't understand

in other words, just stop posting

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
