In World War II we were truly fighting for freedom.
Could you explain why we were fighting a war in Korea in the early '50's?
Why were we fighting in Viet Nam?
Thus, it seems that when the American public is concerned about war or the threat of enemy attack, they tend to be more vigilant and keep there moral standards high.
Pure FASCISM, the idea that waging war is virtuous or leads to virtue, also it is Anti-Christian.
Where did you learn this? Certainly not in the Christian Bible.
Want to wear shorts and flip-flops on your feet? No problem.
Exactly, no problem. Why should there be? The Christian God looks at your clothes????? We're all equal before the eyes of God.
Today, there is too much emphasis placed upon money and self-gratification. Because of this, we over-expect.
On the other hand the Roman Catholic Church emphasizes sacrificing and suffering. These are the pagan virtues of Rome and contradict Christianity. The life of Jesus was about faith and charity, not sacrifice and suffering. What follows are very Christian values, read carefully:
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Coined by none other than T.Jefferson, who also wrote the Bible in no less than 3 languages, Greek, Latin and English. You should read it sometime.
