    Re: Who is my neighbor?

    I believe the recent policies of the U.S. and the policies supported by progressives are that the Samaritan should have demanded 6 denarii from the Levite to pay for the costs of the meal and...

    Re: Republican Hypocracies

    Re: The War On Terror

    I think, and correct me if I am wrong, but you stated that we should engage with ISIS. Your reasoning was that they were a national security threat due to their violent and expansionist goals. ...

    Already, from your answers, I am not quite seeing the clear nature of the enemy. None of the reasons you offered really explain clearly why we are engaged in hostilities with ISIS. You explain that...

    You are conflating two claims, one I have made and one I have not made. I have only claimed that the issue is newsworthy. You have admitted this even though you tried to backtrack on your...

    Re: The Leprechaun's Challenge
