That's right. If there's no Marxist-Libertarian candidate during the next presedential election, I'm voting for God.

They can be represented by the same people who represent non-religious people. Or is God their only issue? Can a religious person tolerate a non-religious person fighting on their behalf for lower taxes and smaller government? What is the role of religion in government that would necessitate religious representatives?

To create as big of a central government as possible to force everybody to bow to the wishes of the religious people. Duh.

Don't be fooled when they tell you they're all for small government, because they're lying. They want the central government to dictate every second of everyone's life, and make sure it strictly adheres to their religious wishes. And they want everybody to be closely monitored to make sure nobody is breaking the rules or going against their religion.

Just ask them if they believe anybody should be allowed to decide for themselves what they do with their body, especially pertaining to abortion, and they'll start telling you how everybody needs to do specifically what that person wants, and that person doesn't give a damn what anybody else wants, because they're the only person who is ever right, and anybody who has a different perspective is flat out wrong.

Not in GTRI. ALL the evangelical atheists are always giving me heck, even though there are a couple of evangelical theists that do too.

Well said.

Religious fundamentalists are the most narcissistic sort I've ever seen. Even more than welfare leeches. They want 400 million people to follow their religious code. When you stop to think about it on those levels it's complete and utter lunacy.

Did you misquote or reply to the wrong post? Are you saying you can't tolerate non-religious people fighting for your behalf for lower taxes and smaller government? Because they give you heck in GTRI?

We had better get used to the idea of HRC 2017-2021. I'll have to bury my guns for four or more years.
