And yet I'm seemingly the only one consistently calling it out, whereas you bury your head in the sand, and others here actually encourage it!

Then again, I guess you're consistent with the only historically constant Christian value: hypocrisy

But this is, logically, what your worldview leads to. I don't see why you have a problem with it? It seems like you believe there is some moral standard we should all strive for but that makes no sense if your worldview is accurate.

Plenty (maybe most!) Christians are hypocrites. That doesn't affect whether or not Jesus rose from the dead or not. It does show why we need a Savior though.  ;)

For what it's worth, I support Hong Kong. And I'm glad you bring some of these things to light that I'm not familiar with. I will say that if atheism is accurate, it's silly to worry about those types of things though.

As the left keep chopping away at the West's religious foundations, what do you think the ultimate outcome will be?

Most progress throughout centuries and millennia of human society has been accomplished with the tools of logic and reason, the scientific method, democratic decision making... i.e. secular humanism, in some form or another (or with some label or another).

I'd personally say that is a much more preferable outcome than a religious apocalypse, of which all the monotheisms believe is the "ultimate outcome". You know the one: god comes to earth, takes the "chosen people" to paradise, and then, of course, completely annihilates everyone else  :o

Now in that context, why should anyone expect the religious to care about Hong Kong or the Uyghurs? They believe in a 2000-year old story which promises a global, species-wide genocide. I mean if they can't even condemn an imaginary genocide, what hope do they have for these problems in real life?

Yet another thread on the politics section where two sides are arguing and I read through it and disagree with everyone.   One side thinks that everything would be better if we just give more money and power to the government, despite the fact that socialism has never worked and has lead to mass deaths, starvation, and misery every time its been tried we will make it work this time.     And the other side thinks that the major problem with socialism is that it doesn't pay enough respect to their bronze-age religion.  Jeez.  where do you even start?

What's ironic in this whole thing is that everyone seems to be missing the biggest picture item of them all. Unfair taxation to begin with.

We currently have Ed Reid and Colon Kapernick running around like clowns crying about "oppression" and racist NFL owners...calling themselves and the rest of the players...
"modern day slaves" for no reason other than the color of the skin of the people who own the teams that pay them outrageous sums of money to play a game.... however...

the real "modern day slaves" are all of us. How ridiculous, insulting, and unjust is it, that for zero reason, other than the dirt upon which I happened to be located when I was born, does the US government own a perpetual royalty on at minimum, 25%(with higher tiered payouts!) of my value as an individual???! You talk about what our country what founded upon? The idea of taxation without representation? Not even did I have the option of a negative consent or legal opt out! What is my representation? Asshats like Trump, Pence, Pelosi, Nadler, McConnell? Down do pedo's like Bob Menendez? None of these people are by consent my "representation"...yet if I object to these shackles and metaphorical chains, what happens? They come after my family and I and harm us through incarceration of confiscation of our belongings...

and yet, many people dont even realize this, and want to authorize and encourage ho bags like AOC and Warren to take more!

AOC, Bernie and Elizabeth remind me of people who don't flush the toilet at a public place because they think they won't need that toilet again.

They don't want to leave the country the way they found it.

Stoke envy, spread lies and grab power.

Greg, you have the option to leave - why don't you?

It's a bit of an unfair question I'll admit, but I think we've all beaten the government debate to death, so might as get right down to it: Why stick around if the value proposition isn't there?

A better option would be to incarcerate the leftists and re-educate or deport them.

LOL you really know very little about this country LC. Even if I "leave" which accomplishes what exactly? These scumbags still stake claim to 25%+ of my skillset and value creation.

The issue, as others have pointed out, is the abuses of the system and constant hands in the cookie jar. So while you and your homies keep searching for "high crimes and misdemeanors", fraudulent and oppressive tactics are being used to enslave Americans and fund the witch hunts and welfare programs.
