The word liberal is in fact an oxymoron in itself, the word comes from liberty, the only liberty they believe people should have is homosexual marriage and abortion. Outside of that, they try to control everything from guns to food. What happened to free will? Is that not what God gave us?
Generally, liberals want us to work as if we were a bee hive, or colony of ants. Do what you are told and there wont be any harm. They look at government as a tool to promote their ideology, I look at it as if it were an animal, fenced in by the constitution. It will provide you a service within the confines of the enumerated powers, but once it gets out it could trample you.
I'd be more than happy to continue discussing this with you, help you with anything. I'm by no means an expert, but conservatism just comes naturally to me.
Is believing in God and being conservative and oxymoron?
Well, the liberals that want you to believe that generally think that it is our duty to pay taxes to the government so the government can provide welfare to the poor, which on the face looks like the Christian thing to do.
There are a multitude of reasons why this is not the Christian thing to do.
Income taxes are taken through coercion. Then distributed to funds that government decides, regardless of your opinion, are immoral. Example, as soon as Obama was elected he overturned and executive order that released funds to foreign countries to pay for abortions.
Hey Charlotte. I've been doing well. I just haven't been spending as much time here lately for a variety of reasons.
I'm glad you liked that post. My biggest issue with the book is that what Dawkins calls his "central argument" just doesn't work. William Lane Craig raises a lot of the problems with it in his response: http://www.reasonablefaith.org/site/...rticle&id=5493. Since The God Delusion is so famous, I think that someone who wants to examine atheism might read it, find flaws with it, and assume that atheism must be false. This would be as mistaken as assuming Christianity must be false since a popular Christian book has flaws. I wish that the best books on both sides were also the most famous books so that it would be easier for someone who cared deeply about whether what they believed was true could examine the best arguments on both sides. But it usually ends up being those who shout the loudest that get the attention.
