    I could see myself enjoying that debate.

    No. Not sure why you'd even ask that. Honestly, I think applying a value judgment to an economic system is a little counter-productive. Being a libertarian, though, I tend to find capitalism most congruent with my philosophical leanings. That's only assuming that I don't get to be benevolent dictator, though.

    And last I checked, this country's foundation was religious freedom, not Christianity. The Christians and OTHERS that founded the nation did so to throw away the old governments, monarchies mostly, that made kings into gods and forced beliefs down peoples' throats under penalty of law... But, again, that is not what this thread is about.

    You donít miss a thread to bash Christians. Why the hate? What have they done to you to cause such a pointed distain for anything Christian?

    1. This thread predates the other thread. In fact, I'm sure that this thread inspired that thread.
    2. I have done no 'bashing' of any religion, nor have I shown any 'disdain' for any religion, either. I have, however, stated that
    a. I disagree with a lot of their [Christians] behavior as a group.
    b. This country's foundation was religious freedom, not Christianity.
    c. The Christians and OTHERS that founded the nation did so to throw away the old governments that forced beliefs down peoples' throats under penalty of law.
    3. You ask what Christians have done to me? Much. I've been taunted and treated like dirt for not being Christian. I've been accused of atrocities for not being Christian. I've watched Christians, time and again, preach one thing and do another. I do not HATE ANYONE, but I do not like the BEHAVIOR of a majority of the Christians with whom I'm familiar.

    Now, if we can keep this thread on topic, it would be GREAT!
