Quoting passages from the bible is irrelevant as an argument related to government programs.
Christianity is about individuals VOLUNTARILY choosing to follow the teachings of Jesus. It isn't about advocating using government force to make everyone else do so.
Jesus didn't march around at the head of a Roman legion extracting alms for the poor from everyone he ran across who he thought could afford it.
"By reading Pith in the Wind, where our motto is the only good sacred cow is medium rare with fries. "
At Pith, each and every member of the entire sacred cow herd is worshiped as the proverbial golden calf.
"Liberals conceived of democracy itself, and conservatives opposed it."
Nope. It was the Romans who conceived of democracy itself - long before any European ever set foot on this continent.
"Liberals supported the American Revolution, and Conservatives opposed it."
Wrong again. The founding fathers were what would today be called Libertarian.
Modern liberals are essentially socialists. And the American Revoltion wasn't fought to institute socialism.
"scientific psychology offers an easy remedy: "
There's no such thing as scientific psychology.
"Gilbert, I'm wondering what you make of the Tennessee Constitution"
What I make of it is that whatever it says about the right to keep and bear arms cannot trump the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution as it is literally written.
So it doesn't make any difference whatsoever what it says.
"It seems that you are an absolutist on the 2nd amendment"
There's no reason why I shouldn't be.
"And Gilbert, next time quote the entire 2nd amendment, not just the part that taken out of context appears to some to support your nonsense!"
You aren't the least bit capable of proving that there is anything "out of context" about the part I did post.
"Gilbert, the right to be armed is NOT being infringed, you may still be armed."
Sure it is.
The text of the 2nd Amendment says the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
It doesn't say anything about the right to bear arms being conditional on getting a government issued permit - so therefore there can be no Constitutional requirement to get one before carrying a gun.
It's as simple as that.
