  1. Kim Davis should not accept the money the State pays her, because there are many gay people among it’s citizens who pay her salary. So she should go to a place where she can do her thing for free and not bother any other people with her misconstrued thinking.

  3. I am getting a boat load of blogs in my email but yours is one of the few I actually always read. We don’t always agree with each other but it’s a free country and I always enjoy your replies.

    Another excellent blog! You hit the nail right on the head! The only reason there is no Christian World (anymore) is because of country’s Constitutions and the subsequent separation of State and Religion.

    You can’t or shouldn’t “rule” a country on a book -whether it is the Bible or the Qu’ran- that has been written eons ago and put together by men. Of course I can’t speak for the Qu’ran since I am not a Muslim but the Bible is always interpreted in so many different ways and I do believe that it is the same with the Qu’ran. One thing that stands out to me in the Qu’ran (read it out of curiosity) is that it says that “man cannot sit on Allah’s chair”. In other words, they have too that it isn’t up to people to judge, a part in both books that religious zealots like to overlook.

    To me it is rather cult-like to say “God/Allah wills it” and the sheep will follow and do your bidding. How do these people know that since none of the Deities talk to men personally, even though these people will claim that it came straight from God or Allah?

    This is becoming a crazier world by the day….

    • Why, thank you! Yes, I wonder about these “prophets”, too. How can you tell which ones are real (assuming you believe that to be possible in the first place) and which ones are charlatans? They’ll all say God spoke to them or that they were filled with the spirit or similar lines.
      As for the Koran, like the Bible it contradicts itself left, right and center. In part, I think, because Mohammed wrote or dictated it over the course of decades, in which he became more powerful and more militant. Also, the traditions are often guidelines he made up as he went along, to fit whatever was convenient to him at a certain time and in a certain situation. So, like the Bible, you can find quotes in there that will fit pretty much any convenience.
