    Jesus was a profoundly revolutionary figure who cared nothing for wealth and power, and whose followers shared all they had. Naturally, like everyone at that time, he expressed his opinions in terms of a 'God'. The Imperialists executed him, as would their present American or Chinese equivalents, but something happened to convince his followers that didn't matter. I find that interesting.

    sure. growing up Catholic taught me a thing or 2.
    But comparative religious study helps flesh out the perspectives beyond rote learning.
    You learn to look for themes and similarities, as well as sharp differences in the world's religions

    Sharing and using the government force people to do something aren't the same.

    Yes, there is a name for that.........

    Corporate America is the lobbying arm of the CCP and Wall Street is the investor relations department

    Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people - does not even pretend to try, instead, he tries to divide us

    We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership Mattis

    It's like a Monopoly get out of jail free card where invoking that fabricated misnomer immaculate Jesus the Christ conception in SCOTUS Christian Nation renders those burning Bush's 9/11 "serve the Pope or die" from Islam "death to the infidels" granted patriot act standing higher than one nation under God.
