Maybe we should protest taxes on city streets paved and lit through taxes.

Here's the funny thing: there is no "Anti-Christ" anywhere in the New Testament. It's a concept that simply isn't there. A letter of John makes reference to "anti-Christs," but that is just a nasty term for anyone who denied that Jesus wasn't the Messiah.

There's no Anti-Christ in the so-called Book of Revelations. (A more acurate title is the Apocalyse to John. An "apocalyse" means an unveiling, an open displaying of something that was previously hidden on purpose. Arguably, any apocalyse is a revelation, but not the other way around. Generally, I think the widespread use of Latinisms in Christianity interferes with understanding the plain wording of the original languages. But I digress...)

So yeah, there's no Anti-Christ in Revelations. There is the Beast (Nero, or maybe Domition) and the Dragon (Satan) and the rider on the white horse. But none of those are ever called the Anti-Christ or an anti-Christ. And it has always been unclear whether the rider is good or evil.

Frankly, the idea that Satan would have a mortal representative the same way as God does with Jesus has always struck me as too dualistic for Christianity.

What, in order to build an interstate highway system? Oh wait, already done. Meh, what do I care if streets are paved and lit in Albin, Wyoming.

0bama says he's never even heard of Ayres. He says he's never heard of the Rev. Wright either. 0bama changes his story every few moments. Why hasn't the mainstream media noticed? Paid for you say?

What are you smoking dude, really? Never heard of Wright? Do you remember campaign season at all?

Sorry, poll methodology designed to elicit just these such answers, therefore BS:

That's about the size of it. The Apocalypse of John (who wasn't the Apostle John, son of Zebedee) was an account of persecution at the hands of the Romans, and a short-term prophecy of coming events. FWIW, in traditional lore, Satan is "the Accuser", and not at all what the vast majority of Christians believe it to be.

I forgot about this You-tube video my brother put together, He was a Hillary supporter and is by no means conservative. He took the "world's smallest political quiz" and it said he is a "liberal-statist"

The Weyland-Yutani corporation approves of safe, comforting and above all white leaders. At the same time we would like to thank the american public for supporting corporatism over socialism.

Thank you. And have a nice day!
