Well, Jim, you finally hit the nail right on the head. Our church goes from door to door spreading the gospel, but the first question we ask is, âDo any old white guys live here?â We send buses to pick up poor people for church, and sadly many black children ride those buses, when what weâre really after are busloads of old white guys. We support missionaries to Mexico, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria, Madagascar, and many other countries, and you wouldnât believe how far those poor missionaries have to travel to preach the gospel exclusively to old white guys! Your insight is amazing, Jim, and your incisive comments are an inspiration to us all. By the way, where can I get one of those Extra Super-Duper Version (ESV) Bibles like you have? Iâm thinking they only have two verses, since you quote the same two over and over again. I think I can deal with that a lot easier than the clunky old KJV, with its hundreds of pages of scripture. Keep up the good work, Jim, for great is your reward in heavenâor somewhere else.
There is no such thing as gun violence, Jim. I have owned and fired many guns in my lifetime, and never found a violent gun yet. Violent people use gunsâand knives, and bombs, and axes, and automobiles, and any other weapon that comes to hand, to kill people. In spite of your ongoing rants about violence committed by white supremacists, the vast majority of shootings in America are done by black and Hispanic gang members. Doesnât blend well with your liberal narrative, does it? Oh wellâtruth almost never does.
Jim, you quoted one source as saying that the amount of time since the abortion should be factored in to any decision based on moral grounds. Does that mean itâs okay now to use lampshades made from the skins of Jews murdered by the Nazis? After all, itâs been almost eighty years since they were slain.
What do you mean you donât have anybody to learn from, Dolores? Christopher can teach you how to put all of your earthly belongings in a shopping cart. JAG can show you how to make a mint julep without booze. Country Boy can demonstrate how to barbecue a possum to a fare-thee-well. I canât do much, but I can sure teach you how to spit and whittle. What more could you ask for?
I didnât accuse you of error, Frank; you just accused me of accusing you. As for being silly, maybe you should reread some of your own stuff occasionally. You donât exactly come across as Socrates yourself.
Frank, I respectfully submit that you were not present when America was founded, and neither was I. However, Patrick Henry WAS present, and he said, âIt cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.â Was every colonist and early patriot a Christian? Of course not. Is every single member of your church and mine a born-again child of God? Probably not. Nevertheless, that does not mean that we are not members of Christian churches or that the United States was not intended to be a Christian nation.
John, I said I would pray for you, and I will. In a land where there is a separated, gospel-preaching, evangelistic church every few miles, it is hard sometimes for Americans to imagine a supposedly free country where this is not the case.
