Though I set the tone to this topic, I feel that I was going about doing the right thing in the wrong way. I apologize if I have offended any of my fellow fans with this thread thus far.
I hope to continue evangelizing here in a less zealous way.
What damage I have done, I pray to undo.
I would very much like to expand this thread's topic to include general questions about Christianity.
Or any other religion or belief, though my knowledge of theology is someone confined to Christianity. I do feel I can help shed some light on any religious matter. If I don't know the answer, I will find it. I enjoy attaining knowledge.

So ask away, if any do so please.

With hope, I will be able to devote more time back the BFFC. I've missed you all.

I feel that I have changed quite bit while I have been away from the boards. A change for the better, I do believe.

As I reviewed my posts on this message board, I realized how much you guys had to tolerate from me - a tactless, evangelistic, ADHD, southern boy. I will not lie, I am embarrassed. However, you will be happy to know that I return as bold as I was before, just a little wiser. Hopefully.

I return liberalized. Yes, the once staunch conservative is now a bleeding-heart. I have been transformed. My eyes opened. I am something of black sheep, now. My home being in the Heart of red Dixie.

While many of my "political" views have changed, rest assured, I am still as devout a Christian as ever. I have studied theology of my religion and its many doctrines. Through this study, my eyes again were opened. I am currently in the process of converting from the Christian denomination of Southern Baptism to the Christian denomination of the Episcopal Church.

I am also a high school graduate now, as much as that means. I have plans to attend college in the Fall, starting down the road who's destination will be a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Wish me luck.

I pray that God allows me time for the boards again. I have missed them sore.

Yeah...I am not confidant that any of them have the necessary charisma to get votes from the Democrats or the votes of President Obama's supporters.

Sorry about the delay in posting results, several primaries were held sense I last posted and much has happened.

Rick Perry has dropped out, leaving only:

Romney   Delegates: 123
Santorum Delegates: 72
Gingrich   Delegates: 32
Paul          Delegates: 19

Santorum won the Missouri primary, but in that primary nobody gets any delegates.
______

McCoy, I'm just doing the Republican Primaries at this point because it is pretty obvious that President Obama is going to be running for president again.

In my opinion they are pretty much equal. Carth belly-aches a little too much but his gun slinging abilities make up for it.

The fact still remains, the United States Armed Forces are defenders of the Constitution, not the government.

That's sortof the first part of it, I just looked up. Your verb there is kinda irregular.

For the sake of reference, the literal oath is the following: "I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

Anyway...


I knew what this oath said, my father was in the Army.

The way this oath is worded though, if the president does something that endangers the Constitution, then the president's authority is nullified.

Also the last part of the oath "according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice..." means that the men and women in the military are not covered by the Constitution, but rather the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Karson, thanks for bringing up all of these points here. But there's a handful of concerns I see with your argument here.

Karson Fett wrote:

The United States of America is not at war with any of these countries.

It was an undeclared war, just like Vietnam and countless other events. (The last declared war was World War II.)

^These are classified as conflicts.^

On September 22, 2001, Bush began an undeclared war on Afghanistan. (Source: CNN). The declaration of war on Iraq was March 20, 2003. (Source: CNN)

The military of the United States of America has not invaded the countries.

This is debatable. The U.S. went into Iraq under the pretense of "weapons of mass destruction," but never found such weapons.

These people that have died have been American citizens.

Plus countless more civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq. (Source: Wikipedia

The United States is the only country that is putting their troops in harms way.

What I meant was, the US Armed Forces are the only group that does any police work.

The Marines and Army men are unable to preform the task that they have been given because of politics.

Last I checked, the U.S. military serves the commander in chief. If the tasks change, due to (hopefully) informed political decisions, they follow orders.

I hope some of this was helpful for forming your opinions. smile

The United States Military serves the United States Constitution...

Officially, we are not fighting anyone. You know exactly what I mean. We are "defending" these areas.

Okay, let me explain what I meant so you can figure it out. I'll try to use small words and sentences.

We. As in the United States of America's Armed Forces, are in the middle east.

The Middle East is the part of the world that countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran are.

The United States of America is not at war with any of these countries.

The military of the United States of America has not invaded the countries.

The military of the United States is acting as a police force and training force for these countries.

Yes, there are gun fights in the countries.

Yes, there are people that have died in these countries.

These people that have died have been American citizens.

These people that have died have mostly been all American Marines and Army men.

The Marines and Army men are unable to preform the task that they have been given because of politics.

Do you understand know?
