    I am in a relatively stable commonwealth country with a parliamentary system some 14,400 km away and after skimming through that, I feel sick.

    KGB:(

    He has adopted the stance, currently fashionable among many social conservatives, that Christianity is a minority faith in the US and is in danger of being wiped out by liberal atheists.

    Either ignorant or malicious, take your pick.

    that's because these same Christians need to feel persecuted so they can be convinced they are believing the ri8ght thing. The whole thing is such a lie it should say christian freedom on it. it will never be for any other brand of religion.

    If a non-Christian religious group came up with this kind of campaign, conservative Christians would be out in the streets with torches and pitchforks. It is massively hypocritical.

    Biblically, if I understood correctly, "adultery" is gender-specific. Men cannot commit OT adultery, only women can. Stoning is not prescribed by NT doctrine.

    Not true.
    I quote Jesus.

    "Any man who has lusted In his heart after his neighbors wife has committed adultery "

    If these wannabe Christians wanna preach they better practice what they preach.

    they want everyone but themselves to practice what they preach. a few more sexual scandals and there won't be any republican runners.

    Not only is Jesus NT, but that injunction merely reaffirms cmdmt X (the thing about coveting). There is no distinction made WRT the gravity of the first ten commandments, they are all mortally sinful to comparable degree. The other 37 are presented with more specificity.

    Right on. I was just saying adultery is a sin that can be committed by male or female.

    No, he is whoring himself out to get the votes of the people who want to do away with the separation of Church and State.

    It is neither ignorant or malicious, but an effort by someone rapidly losing support to try to get radical right-wing nutjobs to vote for him. (i.e. today's republicans)

    I think you give him too much credit. He would love to be the Newtollah of America.
