    Re: Religious Exemption Laws

    Sounds fine if that's what the company and its employees agree to. When you start your business, this is certainly something you may offer to your employees.

    Re: Democrats are More Divisive

    My argument is that the Democrats have based their policy on the neo-Marxist argument of oppressed classes. The fact that no one knows where they draw the line adds to the divisiveness. If I tell...

    Re: Religious Exemption Laws

    Obviously, when you choose to work for a company, you accept their terms of employment and benefits. If the benefits of that company don't suit your needs, then work somewhere else. What else can...

    I never said Free Will was mentioned in the OP. Whatever your take on god and free will isn't the issue. The point is how Christians define free will. Not for me. Not for you. For them. For...

    Admit it??? That is kinda an odd thing to point out considering it has been my stance the entire time. That is why it is worrying. We do not know where they may or may not draw the line. If we...

    I think this goes to the meaning and scope of the 1st amendment which isn't solely about speech. Freedom of expression and association are in there too.

    Your answer is basically, they'll draw it somewhere. However, in concrete, neither of us have the faintest clue where. It isn't Farakkan,...

    Not quite. I mean, that isn't quite my argument. My argument is that being forced isn't an expression of Christian virtue. In other words, taxation and charity are not equivalent. The problem...

    No, I get it, you are making this semantic argument which is really a waste of time. Why? First, because the U.S. is not a socialist society. Therefore, any attempt to make it socialist would...

    These last two posts don't amount to an argument. They are links with quotes. If you have something relevant to the discussion to add, great. Otherwise, I'll accept that your OP is without merit.

    Socialist theory includes the transition to socialism which is a reason I noted the definition you provided was insufficient.
