erowe1, are you seriously taking the position that cops are "innocent until proven guilty"? Or are you just messing with people here to see if they are parroting what they've been told without thinking about it?
Mind you, I'm not talking about the not-so-subtle "Let's lynch 'em" attitude. I tend to think that's a bad idea, even if I philosophize in weird directions sometimes (its part of my efforts to stay sane while surrounded by statists IRL, give me a break). But, there is a difference between saying "we shouldn't condone harming X for Y or Z reasons" and saying "X is actually innocent."
Note, also by "innocent" I don't even mean morally sinless, I just mean per the NAP. I'd honestly be shocked if there is a single cop who's been on the force for more than a week who isn't an NAP violator. Do you disagree?
You should comment on this thread: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...ps-exist/page2 I am curious about your argument.
I know you said you agreed with me that the sex = marriage argument is wrong, so you might want to get involved in this thread... I could use some help here as I don't know as much about this as I probably should.
I genuinely wonder how that would have gone over in my church. Probably not nearly as well.
Thanks for the sermon. Good stuff. I passed it on to my parents. My dad's a pastor so I'd love to see him converted to the view of Romans 13 that you take or a similar one.
Just out of curiosity, how well received was that message in your church?
Thanks. One of my brothers in Christ who I respect and love told me that a Christian man should spend more time with his brothers than people in the world. I was spending so much time on the forums with these unbelievers, and when he said that, I was extremely convicted. There is nothing like spending time with brothers who build you up in the Lord and sharpen you.
I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your insight on topics like we just discussed. (existence, god, reality, etc) You give me much to mull over.
Please help! I'm counting on RPF! http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=251175
I'm using proxies to vote for John, it's moving because of me. But I can't do it on my own.
