    (shrug) OK, doesn't probe anything. Here's the thing (not to get too far off topic) if someone like Robin Hood, that was about 1000 years ago is believed to be a composite of different people in a country that kept pretty good records but no one is 100% sure it seems pretty unbelievable that 2000 yrs ago in a part of the world where hardly anyone could read or write christians are absolutely positive he existed. Even on this thread people point out the so called date of birth but there is no doubt he existed.
    I don't think so. Hell of a good story though.

    If that were the principle, America would be a lot better for it. Unfortunately, people with such principles probably wouldn't vote for someone like Trump,

    yes, Christians have a evil past too, no one said Muslim fanatics did not have problems

    but again which values do you think are only Christian in nature and no other religion

    those are not just Christian values and many Christians do not have those values, but I agree would be better if more of the world had them

    Christianity may define your life, not everyone's, not everyone believes in your middle eastern religion

    Both, when inexplicably employed to detonate an utterance, should automatically and immediately elicit a fanfare of vuvuzelas from all in the vicinity.

    no one is stopping Christians from having a Christian Christmas, enjoy

    just remember, not everyone celebrates it the same, even some Christians celebrate it differently then other Christians

    We've got Halloween coming up. Then Thanksgiving. Then Christmas and New Year's Eve.

    Happy All of Them!

    Ah well. I guess we'll have to ask all the other religions with celebrations during December to knock it off and change their holy days.

    Well, because many of them haven't been forced by a largely secular government to behave themselves.

    Oh right, I see. So in America, women are forbidden to drive in certain states, women are forced to cover themselves in varying degrees of coverage and in some states forced to cover their entire face or be subject to brutal punishment, certain women are beaten by their husbands as a rightful and God commanded punishment for not doing what the husband says, all in the name of Islam, women's testimonies are sometimes worth half that of a man's, some women are subject to genital mutilation and homosexuals live in parts of the country surrounded by people who think that the justified punishment should be death! Damn, what the hell is going on in America?

    Richard Spencer represents the entire country? I wasn't aware of that!

    Which rights?

    Oh but it very much is!

    While the US is not perfect, tell me where is better for gay people to live?

    So? That doesn't mean they didn't have Christian values.
