    And what does that explain? I am not a religious person? If you are religious and have a faith in a higher power, that's your choice. Just like everything else between you and me, different beliefs.

    No need to worry about Hell any longer! The current Pope is taking his religion, followers and church into the 21st Century and stated recently that Hell does not exist. That Adam & Eve are fables and that Evolution is real. How will Preachers get donations now without the promise of getting the flock a "get out of Hell" Pass?
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Yes, this fine country we all live in gives us the 'right' to choose what we believe, but those that have a belief in a higher power, think differently than those who do not...that is my only point....

    Those that are believers will understand what I am saying, those that do not believe may not understand....

    I just have never seen where going to church and giving the church money has done any good. All the prayers that people say "works", has never came to fruition for anyone that I personally know. Some of my friends were devout christians, went to church regularly, gave 10% of their salary. They prayed and prayed for many things, not material things mind you, just things they prayed about. Never have one of their prayers been answered. So I am just a tad cynical and skeptical of the whole religion/faith thing. Just doesn't work for me. I heard the story about the guy that had to put his hand in a wound or something like that to believe in Jesus. I am that guy. Show me yourself and prove to me you are real, otherwise, I just don't believe.

    It is amazing how a thread on corporate tax avoidance turned into a thread on:
    racism - been discussed before &
    religion - been discussed before with no conclusion -
    TBS - there is a lot of new stuff on the company aforementioned - Wii start a new
    thread as time allows -

    I do not attend church, the most important thing Christians prey for is salvation for loved ones and their own soles, which has yet to come...so saying prayers were never answered, is not possible...for the living anyway!

    You pray for your feet? How very odd. Or is it the bottom of your shoes that need saving? Either way, how very odd.

    Golddogs, He said prey for soles, so maybe Swampy is hunting for feet or shoes. Like all great thinkers, Swamplogic can be complicated
