    Not to make light of this situation, but everytime I read the word "manifesto" I think of the PAGANs from Dragnet.

    Yeah I skipped over the part of the Bible where it's ok to insult someone if they disagree with you politically.

    What did it say - Jesus did not come into the world to condem it but to be sure everyone is a DemocratSocialist?

    I missed that.

    You are a special kind of stupid. I'll give you that.

    He never asked for a copay before he healed them. He never gave anyone a drug test before he fed them.

    You told me to be more like Jesus. Jesus was insulting dudes all the time. Basically any time anyone questioned or confronted Him, He told a long story that very clearly implied that His enemies were stupid assholes.

    Specifically dudes like you. If you can’t see that the modern conservative Christian movement is a 1:1 match for the Pharisees, you may only be using your bible for a prop to hold up your violent culture that stands for everything Jesus was against.

    How long do you think it will take until New Zealand has new gun laws? My money's on not long.

    Prime Minister said today there'd be new ones ASAP. In a parliamentary system that means real soon (Brexit excepted).

    They will not allow their society to be put into the situation the U.S. is.

    Trumpers say we can't blame Trump for this, yet the shooter explicitly mentioned trump as an influence in his manifesto.

    I have no clue who you're talking about. If there is a monthly meeting of the "Modern Conservative Christian Movement" I have never been invited. There are many mainstream Christian leaders that I have zero tolerance for, such as Jerry Falwell Jr. There are many more that I love and admire such as Tony Evans and Franklin Graham.

    I also am the last person to support a violent culture. I have no idea where you get that from. This started after I responded that a horrible violent act may have been prevented with CWP citizens.

    That's anti-violence. Being pro-life is anti-violence to the babies that are killed. Funny you're anti-violence and have shown nothing but hate toward me. Not that I care.
    You mix religion and politics. I don't. Our founders wanted a moral people and a secular government.

    I'm not going to make you go to a certain church or believe a certain thing. It's quite silly to think that Jesus was socialist as you seem to think. But that's a beauty of the Bible. All we are required to believe is that 3 days later, He walked out of that tomb. The gospel can see past the blinders that you have on. At least I hope it can for your sake.

    Abortion isn't killing any babies. The only time abortion appears in the Bible, it's in favor of it. There are also numerous references to life beginning with breath and not conception. But you don't know that because you don't actually read it, you just repeat what you're told it's said.

    Meanwhile, in this thread you were bragging that your church would be protected by firearms. If you wanna be like Jesus, why aren't you telling them to put their swords away like he did Peter?
