    Who indoctrinated you into believing Obama was qualified because of his skin color?

    In the above post you say everyone is free to believe what they like...yet the majority of your posts say otherwise....Hmmm...am i missing something?
    These none believers must be scared to death that they might be wrong, why else would they make such an issue about others believing.

    An absurd thing to say. This is anonymous. There's no way to make good on a monetary wager. And besides. I believed you believed it was fake the first time you said it. And we don't really have many tools to confirm it's validity.

    All we are left with is our own sensibilities to guide our beliefs. I know there are people who feel the way that is expressed on the napkin, so it's easy to believe somebody would do that. There are people who are so controlled by their church that every penny they don't need for survival goes to the church. They are completely in. They would think they are doing the waitress a favor by withholding her tip and giving it to the church instead. Especially really guilty people who have a lot to atone for and came to the church late in life. They think they are buying their way into heaven. If they did something really bad when they were younger and the guilt is strong enough, then the devotion to the church is equally as strong as that guilt.

    They would be a lot better off getting professional counseling and learning about guilt than going to the church. And it would cost them a lot less.

    Nah. I wouldn't shoot anyone unless they were a threat to myself, my family or my property. Same thing as here in the US.
    You would be immersed in Islam as you are immersed in Christianity here. It would only depend on where you were born and the local cult.

    Maybe it all depends on which 'crowd' you hang around with?

    Because some are bent on pushing those views onto others and make people adapt to them. I get that vibe even being a Christian myself.

    Your kind want to destroy our traditions and freedoms, we won't allow that to happen.
    What the fuck are you talking about? This is so delusional. Taking certain guns off-market or even implementing a buyback program is none of that. Your propaganda riddled mind on the subject makes you worthless on the topic. You conservatives in these faux overdramatizations of reality are really sad. It shows you aren't listening to anyone but the NRA or other such sources.
