    Hillary and everyone who supported her are such sore losers. If she had won the election, then there would've never been any "threat" of "fake news" to warn the public about. But because the results of the election didn't match with the narrative of the mainstream media, oh, now there is a new terrorist threat in social media. What a bunch of megalomaniac crybabies!

    I really don't get Trump supporters. To be "liberty-minded" is a packaged deal, encompassing many related and consistent positions on public policy towards the goal of less government intervention and more private entrepreneurship and charity. It's not just saying the right thing on one issue. Every time Trump says one thing that is even remotely close to a conservative or libertarian position, Trump supporters here rage on like, "Look! Trump is going to lead us towards liberty! Woooooooo!" forgetting the tens of other positions that Trump holds when it comes to things like eminent domain, stealing oil from other nations, using executive orders for his own means, and a slew of other non-liberty views. Forget Trump's rhetoric; look at his history of what he's stood for, used the government to do on his behalf, and how many times he's flip-flopped on issues. That's what counts.

    I understand that, UWDude. My point is that Dr. Carson has special expertise in the field of medicine in contrast to housing and urban development. In any case, I really don't trust Trump's appointments because they're all going to be bad for the States and the people. Trump will appoint individuals who believe that America's domestic issues and foreign interests must be solved, first, by federal intervention.

    I, too, enjoy using the King James (Authorized Version) Bible, and it has been my main translation since I was a young boy. In fact, several years ago, I would have almost considered someone a heretic if he didn't use the KJV. However, as we become older and, hopefully, more mature in our faith, we come to realize that many of the theological positions we used to hold were wrong. The exclusivity of the KJV is one of those positions, for me. Though I believe it to be the premium version for English-speakers, I also recognize that its language can become a stumblingblock for many people. Therefore, other translations have to be used for understanding, memorizing, and citing of God's word. So, I am not a "KJV-Only" person. Having said that, I find that the ministry website of the Trinitarian Bible Society has some very good information and insights about why the KJV still ought to be used as the standard version for English-speaking Christians and churches.

    That depends on your worldview, particularly as it relates to whether human beings have souls or not. From a Christian worldview, no, consent is not always the precondition for any behavior. In fact, if God did not give us new hearts by the Holy Spirit ("being born again") to trust and follow Him, then no one would consent to believing in Him. That's because we're all born in sin, and our natural selves don't want anything to do with God, due to that sin nature. But once again, if one rejects the Christian worldview about the nature of human beings, then that person has to justify why pedophilia is objectively wrong, given the assertion that human beings are just biological machines subject to the laws of chemistry and physics. And to insert the need for consent in sexual behavior goes way beyond biology, chemistry, or physics. Otherwise, consent becomes an impossibility, or, at best, just something that is dependent upon impersonal and random material forces which no human being can control unto himself.

    It has a lot to do with it because you must be able to justify why consent is right, on a metaphysical level, given the assumption that there is no God. If you can't justify objectively why consent ought to be the precondition for proper sexual behavior, then you are asserting an idea without a just basis for it. In other words, you are being arbitrary. You're essentially arguing that two people must consent to a sexual act because you think consent is good. But then someone else can be equally arbitrary and say that consent is irrelevant when it comes to fulfilling their sexual lusts (as pedophiles, rapists, and others do). That's the consequence of your idea on sexual behavior, especially in a world without the sovereignty of a personal God.

    You're glad I'm anti-Trump because you are anti-liberty. You want more intervention from the federal government into our personal lives, into the marketplace, and into the affairs of foreign nations. That's exactly what Trump stands for, and that is just as evil as "pedophiles running our government."

    Now you've made the problem more difficult because consent necessarily implies free will. In a universe of just random processes subject to non-sentient matter on a subatomic level, there can be no such thing as "free will" because matter just operates based on forces enacted against it. Just as rocks fall to the ground by gravitational processes, the human brain just does whatever it does based on random electrochemical processes. Therefore, there can be no true consent whereby a person is free to choose one behavior from another behavior simply because he is subject to whatever processes his brain forces him to act. But if we take the idea of consent up to another level, and with the assumption that the universe is not under the influence of a personal God, then we must ask why consent, itself, ought to be the determining factor for correct any behavior. Children do not consent to their parent's discipline before they are spanked, for instance, yet we all realize that the consent of the child is irrelevant for such matters. Criminals don't consent to being taken away to prison before they are arrested, either, but we recognize that their consent is moot in matters of justice. So, philosophically speaking, you have to show objectively why consent is true, so that it can be asserted as a proper ethical standard in sexual behavior, no matter if a person accepts consent or not. And you have to apply it as that standard for these biological bags of meat and bones with electricity flowing through them known as "human beings." Otherwise, you are just being arbitrary. And if you want to be arbitrary, then someone else can come along and impose his sexual standards by rejecting consent as the precondition for acceptable sexual behavior (as do the "pedophiles running our government" towards little boys and girls).

    If you don't believe in the triune God of Scripture, then you can't have an absolute nor consistent reason to condemn pedophilia. By Evolutionary reasoning and precepts (and there are many naturalists and ethicists who would agree that), pedophilia is just another sexual behavior like homosexuality, bisexuality, polygamy, polyandry, necrophilia, phytophilia, and bestiality derived from a person's "natural" desires by the means of natural selection. If you're going to argue that homosexuality is okay but then turn around and condemn pedophilia, then you are a hypocrite. So, my point is determining whether or not pedophilia is a natural consequence of evolutionary descent is the prerequisite before anyone condemns "pedophiles running our government," if one denies that God has any authority in our sexual habits and desires.

    Your inbox if full. Anyway here's what I was going to tell you. Iran's mistreatment of Christians is also a result of our foreign policy failures. Iran was a democracy before we overthrew Mossadeq and installed the Shah. Due to the Shah's brutality, the Islamists came to power. But for our intervention in Iran there would be no blasphemy laws in Iran. Again, the offense that you took at FrankRep's article makes no sense, especially if you support Ron Paul's foreign policy and the idea of "blowback".

    As for the incident in Mexico, the point I was making is that the Mexican government has chosen not to prosecute the priest in this case. I seem to recall in the past you complaining about Egypt not doing enough to protect Coptic Christians from mob violence. Well if Mexico is refusing to prosecute the instigators of mob violence against Protestants, what is the difference?

    Sorry I didn't get to the below post before the thread was locked: You're talking about a guy who supported Hitler and David Duke and thought there was a Jewish conspiracy to convince white people that black people weren't dumb.

    He didn't "just oppose crimes by the Israeli state".

    How much will you excuse?


    My response is that his points about Hitler were correct. I overlooked the other things you mentioned, and I would have called those tasteless. To answer "How much will you excuse?"-only things that are reasonable and can be supported by evidence. Thanks for the civil conversation. -HB
