    maybe, to a psycho. Love, in the mass murder of the flood.
    Love, in the killing of the first born of egypt. Love, in the
    act of killing all but the virgin girls who were taken captive.
    Love, in condemning all women to agonizing childbirth
    because of the action of one person. Love, yeah, the
    list goes on. Suffer no witch to live.

    What is with people who think down is up?

    I know you love to Troll however, you slip when you post stupidly. I used Nihilist in a sentence, you know what those are, which means I know exactly what it means.
    And thanks. I also know now that you are his sister.
    That hate for Christians is going to eat you alive. The self-hatred is what makes you immerse yourself among them. That you may exercise your demons in hate filled language against us. But we don't hate you back. We know your destiny. Which is why I forgive your ignorance about the Bible that calls you damned.

    Won't be reading you anymore. I do not consume junk food off line either.

    If you get in people's face in public and yell mean stuff, sooner or later someone is going to knock you down.

    I doubt she'll take that advice once she and her brother pick themselves up.
    See, I know how you meant it however, when you have those who have shouted mean stuff here for years and you address this new member, you're wrong.
    When a Humanist posts as a Humanist Nihilist truth in calling that out as Nihilism isn't mean. It's truth.
    And when addressing his bully sister-prototype, who's post history is public, it isn't mean to recognize what she is, as I posted to her personally. It's righteous.
    God knows who are his and who will be saved. He knew this before the world came to exist. Those who know they're not in the Book of Life , even when they claim not to believe such "nonsense", act the part. They join religious forums, Christian forums , as she has because she uses the same avatar and name in all of them. And they proceed to assail Christians.

    That doesn't make us look bad.

    In the "developed world," there is no comparing America to other countries. You have to look at third world countries with extreme corruption and social/political/economic instability.

    Because of all that and more is why we will be better off to leave the Bible to the annals of history, and replace it with superiour guides to thought, living, and morality, regardless of what few decent scraps of morality the Bible does contain.

    Other developed nations had their slaves in colonies in the past. Americans had them living in their backyards. Ergo those developed nation left their problems in their colonies and colonials to deal with which broke later broke away. IE SA.

    The British Empire had slaves in their home and backyard as well.

    Not the millions seen in the US. Most of UK slaves were in colonies and India. Ergo the UK itself didn't have to deal with the fallout of it's past to the same extent. Those pasts were passed on to the emerging nations. Ergo SA.

    Actually the UK has dealt with its misgivings at home, and Brexit has stirred fears that centuries-old conflicts will once again ignite. And this has what, exactly, to do with the problem of gun violence? The majority victims are white middle aged men who commit suicide.

    I do not consider suicide as the same issue as gun crimes and crimes with guns. If people want to off themselves they will find a way without a gun.

    LA city development in the 20s and 30s for example was dictated by race. Project housing is another example. There is a history of controlling racial and ethnic populations via zoning and land value. Freedom of movement and economic access is very recent in US history when it comes to race.

    The UK didn't have to deal with millions of it's own slaves as those were mostly in the colonies. It had to deal with it serfdom and facade of a Parliament more than slavery. The UK didn't end slavery in India as it was "cultural" thus would upset people with stuff like freedom and rights.

    Good, because suicide isn't a crime. But guns make it easier, and make impulsive violence easier.
    And zoning has what to do with mass shootings, heat of the moment shootings, school shootings, and shootings that arent acted on as part of larger criminal activity (armed robbery, grand theft auto, gang related)?

    When he was in cities, he went into the synagogues. That or he went out near bodies of water and preached. Hardly the same thing.

    When a text calls for death for certain types of people, it is hateful.

    Sure. However this is more of an institutionalization issue than a gun issue. After all these people are free in society instead of being locked up in a mental hospital for their own safety.

    I never said mass shootings. I was pointing out the zoning system used before created the ghettos which are now crime infested which include gun crimes in higher concentrations than average. An issue the UK didn't have to the same extent as per it's colonies. You lumped two points together, the previous one covering the historical differences between the US and UK then suicide. As per "Actually the UK has dealt with its misgivings at home," Those misgivings are nothing compared to the US
