Wow, Teague has never heard of winter. I guess it’s not mentioned in the bible.

Snow is just a liberal media myth.

Well, I've satisfied my urge to relive an old JREF forum running gag of mine.

He should actually read a bible or something there were originally 14 commandments, so he‘s forgotten about 4 of them.
I think he needs some more awareness.

They never give up, do they?

He believes the cause of the economic recession and other problems across the nation are a result of America turning its back on God

So now we know who was shorting all those bank shares. I wonder who his broker is?

Australian pensioners are being hurt - badly - by a worldwide recession which it appears was largely caused by some greedy US bankers.

Any god that would exact that sort of punishment on innocent people, many of whom would believe in him, is not a god that's worthy of praise.

Which ten would that be as there are two sets, in fact if memory serves me correctly, the traditional ten are not even referred to as the ten commandments. Then there are all those other whacky commandments 'n' rules, just take my advice and don't pick up sticks on the sabbath, not a good idea.

"Teague says he he has no doubt that God has blessed a drought stricken Johnson County with rain and snow recently because so many people have fought to keep the Ten Commandments in the courthouse."

Yeah and what about all those other poor, drought 'n' famine suffering peeps that have never even heard the good word? They don't get the love and merciful intervention until they pony up enough works in His name?, thats the work of a proper asshat. Or it could just be winter, meh.

And when eventually things will get better through tireless efforts of policy makers and fiscal policy experts, Teague will be able to claim the credit. It kinda like me telling someone they will die and taking credit when it eventually happens.

Is he also pushing for us to acknowledge the punishments for those commandments?

1. Exodus 22:20: He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
2. Leviticus 24:16: And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death.
3. Exodus 31:15: Whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
4. Exodus 21:15: He that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
5. Exodus 21:17: He that curseth his father or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
6. Exodus 22:19: Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.
7. Leviticus 20:13: If a man lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death.
8. Leviticus 20:10: And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall be put to death.
9. Mark 16:16: He that believeth not, shall be damned.
10. Malachi 2:1-4: And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If you will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart to give glory to my name, ... behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces.

He's walking? To D.C.? When he gets there he can ride the atheist bus.

I would just like to start out saying that if you only knew the situations that God has helped you (the people of USA) through and no the heart ache that this has brought to his family to know that there is people out there like you that he has to face on the road way and be frowned upon. I think that it is a crying shame that there is mean cruel people that will not look up to him for this. YES you will regret these things that you have said, because as in the BIBLE GOD told many people to do things that the world would laugh and frown upon but to trust in him " GOD ALMIGHTY " and he would protect his children. YES "YOU" are one of them no matter what you may say or even think. He BLEED AND DIED for you to be saved and free from HELL. I just dont understand why this is happening in the first place. If we had more people like him " Scott Teague " this world would not have to beg and plede to have the rights that was in the beginning. The ones that is out there that do not believe need to read Revelations and you will understand more then what you THINK you know. I am not even sure about why you would want to throw it up in GOD's face that the world only has two commandments. I have been raised and brought up in the belief of the sweet God Almighty. Just think of it this way, if you were the one that had to die for billions of people to be set free from HELL's flames would you want people to second guess you. Or even a family member. Think people... God is REAL he has always been real.... and ONE GlORIOUS DAY!!!! We shall see his beautiful loving face for us that believe. Those that do not need to do more studing and leave us BELIEVERS alone.... I am not shy of telling anyone who I am because I am a BELIEVER Unlike some people they do not post their names but I am Chassie!!! . Words out to those who believe and those who do not. Please get right before it is everlasting to late. May GOD BLESS Scott Teague and the family. And most of all GOD BLESS THE USA!!!!

Y'know, I hate normal salad. The word kind makes me retch.

I think we've got a live one here...

The ones that is out there that do not believe need to read Revelations and you will understand more then what you THINK you know.

Actually, I've read Revelations. Very carefully. Several times. Never been able to make a lick of sense of it. It's gibberish, much like most of your post.

That always cracks me up. as if atheists a) havent read the bible or b)havent read enough of the bible or c)don't know the history of the making of the bible..better than most christians.

Hey doopa head, We read the dumb book, its filled with childish stories and myths. It has been modified over hundreds of years. It was edited and transliterated multiple times. We don't care what is in your story book any more than we care what is in the Koran, Dianetics or Grimm Fairy Tales.

If yo wan't to convince me that hell or heaven exists, you are going to have to show it to me before I am dead (or before you are).

I was listening to a great podcast these days, called Hardcore History (I say, if you like history at all, you should go for this one). He flies all over the world and all over time, assyrians, babylonians, WWII, Black Death. Its pretty good.

Anyway, here is a little tidbit I picked up. Why, during the Black death, was the mortality rate amongst priests the same as for everyone else? I have my answer, what is yours?

May I presume it has the words "mysterious ways" in it?

The ones that is out there that do not believe need to read Revelations

FAIL. If you had read it yourself you would know it is the book of Revelation, not Revelations.

Ha! Good catch Skeptico. Revelations is, of course, one of the bests tracks on the classic Iron Maiden album Piece of Mind. And it makes a good deal more sense - although I'm still not entirely clear what it's about. I believe Bruce Dickinson once claimed it was about opening a pair of curtains. ;)

Yep, definitely a live one.

I am not even sure about why you would want to throw it up in GOD's face that the world only has two commandments.
Read it again, because that's not what Skeptico said. He said that only two commandments are reflected in American law, thus putting the lie to the claim that "the Ten Commandments are the historical foundation of American law." Just for a laugh, let's compare the first three Commandments (common Protestant version) to the Bill of Rights:

10C: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me"
BoR: "Congress shall pass no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof [...]"

10C: "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."
10C: "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain [...]"
BoR: "Congress shall pass no law [...] abridging freedom of speech, or of the press."

Right off the bat, the Ten Commandments and the Bill of Rights stand in direct opposition to each other. How could the former possibly be the basis for the latter?
