Re: Are You Enjoying You Life?

I'm glad you mentioned the Roma (gypsies) which have sadly been neglected and are still persecuted in many parts of Europe, and their entire history is mostly unknown to most.

If Biden picks a good Vice President who can...

Re: What is the stupidest thing Trump has said?

Sam Giancana, the Chicago mob boss was said to be indirectly associated with the Kennedys during JK's election campaign with Frank Sinatra being the go-between. That Sinatra had mob ties is indisputable. That relationship supposedly came apart when Robert Kennedy became Attorney General in JK's cab...

Re: Here’s a question for anyone who believes in the existence of HELL:

If there were a great devil, he would surely be the creator of religion: a perfect means for distorting and derailing people from seeing and honoring the divine nature accessible and reflected throughout all. yep, and to this day i know of only one Christian that takes his time to pray for the salv...

Re: Here’s a question for anyone who believes in the existence of HELL:

Just out of curiosity, though, name a few “sins” that you think warrant a stint in Hell. There's only one, as I reckon it: deprivin' a person of his life, liberty, or property without just cause. do you equate those three equally? I don't just asking here. you think a thief is as bad (actions are a...

I agree with gaffo... I have no problem with Hell as a place to serve a sentence for sins. ...the catholics have such a penalty box: limbo I think they call it. Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle wrote a couple of novels wherein hell was much like the catholic limbo. You could leave when ready to. Hell,...
