Jesus basically was against promiscuity. Therefore, any deviation from monogamy was wrong. That includes heterosexual promiscuity on the same plane as homosexual.

That get lost in all the holier than thou finger pointing.

There is no real evidence to say he existed, so to state what he was for or against is just pure speculation...

In Christian religions there exists Gospels of which do exist and state what I said they stated.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus

AFAIK and I'm pretty big on the subject, we have no contemporary witnesses to Jesus. The Gospels themselves, despite their claims, were not written until 80CE at the earliest with some coming a century later, with the possible exception of the letters of John of Patmos.

Sounds to me like you just don't like living in an organized, structured society. You would prefer the end of your property line being the end of your concerns, right?

That's a dream, and an unrealistic one.

But lets keep this on a simply mathematical level. I want you to explain something to me. I am taking the following statement from: https://www.peoplespolicyproject.org/2019/06/14/top-1-up-21-trillion-bottom-50-down-900-billion

What the final product reveals is a 2018 where the top 1 percent owns nearly $30 trillion of assets while the bottom half owns less than nothing, meaning they have more debts than they have assets. This follows from 30 years in which the top 1 percent massively grew their net worth while the bottom half saw a slight decline in its net worth.

Now, where are taxes going to come from? You're a nation that must meet its ends, so do you go asking the people with no money for taxes, or do you go for those who actually have money? Because one of those options is a total waste of time.

Taxpayers fund education. Same thing can happen with healthcare.

Weird that we live in a society where owning a gun is a constitutional right but you're on your own if you get shot by the guy with the gun.

It's disgusting.

I don't get it. What's wrong with socialism?

That's a lengthy conversation, but first we need to establish what the definition of socialism is. Socialism is when the government "controls" the means of production.

Elementary error but a common one. Via https://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-difference-between-socialism-and-communism.htm

As an economic system, socialism seeks to manage the economy through deliberate and collective social control. Communism, however, seeks to manage both the economy and the society by ensuring that property is owned collectively and that control over the distribution of resources is centralized to achieve both classlessness and statelessness. Under communism, all people are considered equal and are provided for equally, regardless of their contributions to the economy or to society. This is different from socialism, but both socialism and communism are similar in that they seek to prevent many of the ill effects that are sometimes associated with capitalism, such as economic inequality.

Edit: Intended to quote your entire post, I'm not just replying to that one line.

Well you didn't get your information from a factual source so I am going to disregard that.

The following is from Investopedia, a factual source:

What Is Socialism?

Socialism is a populist economic and political system based on public ownership (also known as collective or common ownership) of the means of production. Those means include the machinery, tools, and factories used to produce goods that aim to directly satisfy human needs. Communism and socialism are umbrella terms referring to two left-wing schools of economic thought; both oppose capitalism, but socialism predates the "Communist Manifesto," an 1848 pamphlet by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, by a few decades.

In a purely socialist system, all legal production and distribution decisions are made by the government, and individuals rely on the state for everything from food to healthcare. The government determines the output and pricing levels of these goods and services.

https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/socialism.asp

The second part is the one we need to focus on: "In a purely socialist system, all legal production and distribution decisions are made by the government". So what I said before was spot on.

In a Communist state, there is no state. Everything is done via the local apparatus, thus the term COMMUNism from COMMUNITY.

Which of course means there have never been a Communist country. Junta, sure. But not Communist.

I bet you have to look Junta up.

If something like free healthcare would to happen in America, ALL tax payers would have to pay for it, not just the rich. It seems like both Republicans and Democrats lately have had nothing, but bad ideas.

So if I don't have kids, is it fair that I have to pay oodles of taxes for educating other peoples brats?

Why shouldn't just the people who have kids pay for schools? Because it's in all our best interest to educate the young, right?

Yet is it not also in our best interest to have a healthy population?

All the local music shops. Found lots of interesting music and people in those places. Pegasus Records and Tapes was a personal favorite.

I don't know man; it is one, maybe two, degrees of separation from Trump.

Trump--> Trump's personal lawyer (Giuliani)--> Giuliani's associates.

Even if it is not about Trump, it is still about him in the sense that these people are close to him.

If someone commits a crime, you don't just investigate him. You talk to his parents, siblings, and other family. You talk to his neighbors. You talk to his coworkers. You talk to his friends.

It's becoming apparent that the Trump administration is attempting to run a shadow government. If this were Obama, the right wouldn't just be polishing their rifles, they'd be on the White House Front Lawn demanding the traitor be brought forth.
