    The Accountant seems like it's a movie mixture of The Bourne Identity and A Beautiful Mind. Nonetheless, I still want to see it.

    BMI rates are also based and calculated on white, european men. Does that make me a racist and a sexist? No. It's fact, and it still poses an issue for anyone not in that demographic, especially for blacks and post-menopausal women, and it's been researched and proven.

    The bottom line of this discussion is determining whether or not it's good to have laws prohibiting sexual behaviors, in general, and prostitution, in particular. It seems to me that you believe local, state, nor the federal governments should have laws prohibiting sexual behavior. If I'm correct about that, then are you for repealing laws that prohibit sexual acts like rape, child molestation, and bestiality because they have been codified by civil magistrates? I'm just trying to understand where your thinking is on that.

    Where did Christian Liberty ever say, "Comply or cooperate with my judgment, or I will murder you," as it pertains to prostitution?

    If you're a Christian, then you should have a moral problem with bestiality. If you don't, then you need to study the Scriptures to see what God thinks of it. Now, my reason for asking you about bestiality was to simply show that you do pass judgments on sexual behavior, just as Christian Liberty does. There is no neutrality about it. That brings me to your statement: There is no religious neutrality in public policy. The rejection of a Biblical application to public policy is just the adoption of another religious authority, which in our current state of affairs is secular humanism. Some group of citizens will be judged and sanctioned by the law, based on the religious foundation of those who create laws. That's why homosexuals, for example, are using state and federal legislatures to impose their morality upon Christians (and other groups) through "hate crimes legislation." Once again, that's just a reflection of someone's religious worldview. It's simply inevitable.

    Okay, maybe I misunderstood you, so let me back up and ask if you have a problem with sexual acts like bestiality.

    It doesn't matter which of the two tod evans was referring to because both of them are judgments of a sexual act. That was simply my point. Now, concerning how that relates to this thread, as Christians, we know the Bible teaches that God is sovereign over His creation, which means that He has authority over every aspect of human life. So, when we are discussing public policy about certain behaviors which are public taboos in our society, then our first question to ask is, "What has God said about it?" From there, we use wisdom from the Scriptures to understand how that behavior ought to be dealt with in society by all levels of government (self, family, church, and civil) in order to please God.

    My point is that you have a moral declaration about a particular sexual behavior, and that declaration is, in fact, passing judgment upon those who engage in the act (which, in the case I quoted you from, was bestiality). In fact, everyone passes judgment on sexual behaviors. I'm sure that no one here accepts that rape is a moral sexual behavior. But, hey, if there is no God, and thus, there is no ultimate ethical standard for sexual behavior, so, therefore, humans are nothing more than evolved bags of meat with electricity running through themselves, then some people can't help their sexual preference to rape others. And we can apply that same reasoning to other sexual behaviors. So, then, where is the room to judge any sexual behavior, if God hasn't set up some rules for standard sexuality? Thus, the prerequisite in this whole discussion is marked by one simple question: "By whose standard?"

    Oh, so it's not okay for Christian Liberty to pass judgment on other people's sexuality, but it's okay for you to do so when it comes to bestiality? Remember this?

    Yes, I could have looked it up, myself, but I was interested in your view on it, in relation to Islamic theology. Are there any other passages in the Qur'an where casus belli is taught? Is that principle derived originally from Islamic thought?

    Hey, but having sex with animals is just someone's sexual preference, right? It's just as natural as two guys or two girls being attracted to each other, so who are any of you to call it "disgusting?" That's discrimination, bigots! In fact, Canada's Supreme Court is also bigoted for not allowing penetration in addition to oral sex because it is trying to dictate what kind of sex a person can have with his pet. So, Canadians should be saying, "Fuck you for not letting me fuck ewes," right?

    Once again, you're putting words into my mouth. Where did I say equate reliance on police (or government) with faith in God, especially given the fact that I've already claimed that we should arm ourselves for our own protection in addition to having law enforcement? There is no "dick waving" going on here. We need to be honest about what flows from our philosophical beliefs during these types of discussions. I'm simply speaking from my worldview, as a Christian, so naturally, the Scriptures will be brought up because the word of God is the ultimate standard for my beliefs on police, guns, government, or anything else. Since the Bible is not your ultimate standard for truth, then, you, too, will speak from your own authority just as religiously as I do from mine. So don't try to make this into some "Religion vs. Reason" type of debate. It's clearly "Religion vs. Religion," and if you consider yourself an atheist, then you're just as religious about your beliefs as I am about mine, except your gods are the random electrochemical processes inside your brain that you rely on for reason. As always, we are debating worldviews here about, in this case, the need for police. If you don't understand that, then you're just going to be arguing arbitrarily.

    There is no logical fallacy. The reason that I cited the Psalm 20 and Isaiah 31 passages was to back up the clause where I said, "...provided that we keep our faith in Him and not the object, itself." Those passages have nothing to do with God teaching that we shouldn't have armies. They clearly teach that we shouldn't put our faith in armies when it is God Who gives the power to be victorious. Also, those 2 passages were written after God had already commanded Israel to form armies, as I said was mentioned was recorded in the books of Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, etc. To your point about Deuteronomy 17:16 teaching that kings weren't suppose to have armies because it says, "But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses, forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, 'Ye shall henceforth return no more that way,'" you're taking it way out of context. The reason why the king wasn't supposed to multiply horses was to the purpose of trying to return to Egypt, as the text clearly says. Better commentators than you and me have even pointed that out, like the famous Matthew Henry: So, you're totally wrong about the Deuteronomy 17 passage. But the application of all of this still remains that God nowhere condemns having armies or security institutions, per se, nor does He command kings to own all weapons at the expense of his people not having any. In fact, the closest incident to something like that in Israel's history was when they were subdued by the Philistines for a time under King Saul in 1 Samuel 13. But it was always the norm for Israel to have weapons and armies, particularly when it came to possessing the "Promised Land." In fact, if Israel had no army nor was led into battles by Joshua (Joshua, of course, being a type of "Christ"), they would have never inherited the land promised to them by God. So, don't sit there and tell me that God never wanted His people to have horses for war because it's taught all over the place in Scripture.

    Voting isn't a sin, neither is having a representative government. But I don't expect you to understand why that's true because you're not interested in truth, and scholarship is not one of your fortes. So, just keep yourself busy with your "copy and pastes," like a good little boy.
