Re: Why is America more right-wing than other democracies?

My theory is that America simply always HAS been more right-wing than other democracies, and that as all societies in the world since the enlightenment seem to have gradually shifted left at approximately the same speed America would remain so.

Re: How I wish I understood... [USA and Israel]

I suppose I would agree too, but because of the amount of "Catholics" who aren't... I can't think of a good way to put it, but non-committed maybe? I think that for those Catholics who are well versed in scripture may cite Genesis 12, and I'm sure they would all back that Israel was meant ...

Re: How I wish I understood... [USA and Israel]

-snip- -RELIGIOUSLY... Actually, that's a big one. Let's split it up. -FROM A CHRISTIAN perspective, Israel is the site of many holy places, and a damned sight more likely to allow access to them than a government of Muslim fundamentalists. Additionally, lots of Evangelical Christians believe that ...

I can't help but feel that he is expecting BHG to show up again and threaten he and his hat. As such, he would be jumpy.

Re: nudity vs violence

*note, I only read the first 2-3 pages Maybe I'm missing the sub-plot of this discussion, but it comes from America's Judeo-Christian heritage faulty or not. According to these sets of morals violence is at times permissable--generaly in war. It is also somewhat glorified by culture, and has been fo...

Re: Coping

I've found myself fighting off somewhat of an "existential coma" where all thoughts lead to the question why and sometimes repressed tears. It may be my new found obsession with Pink Floyd, and I am an Atheist. Seeing as this is a place where one can find many of those, I was wondering ho...

Re: Burning of books?

I'm tempted to say that only books that contain some value shouldn't be burned--such as really really poor quality romance novels--but of course once in that position burning books becomes subject to what is considered to have value by those in power. I myself would hate to see most any book burned....
