This is both true and untrue. It is a very contradictory theological work that records the evolution of religious beliefs, but if the Faith only is in a belief in the existence of God, the content can be cherry-picked to remove all the contradictions.

Just FYI, faith doesn't really require the sort of thing you are requesting...

No, no. You can't pull that. For the most part, chrsitians have always been at the top here. And if you don't know that, then you don't belong on a public discussion site.

In fact, since in a previous post you tried to claim America was founded by christian based on christian principles, you're now arguing with yourself.

Ozzy's post was not about faith. It was about christian politics.

Notions, beliefs and attitudes like this one in bold always concern me more than just a little...

Okay, but as a rule it's very hard for me to separate faith and anything having to do with Christians, their politics included. Call me simple...

When fascism comes to America it will be called AntiFa and carry weapons to bludgeon reporters to suppress speech and firebomb ICE facilities.

Arguing who is "at the top" whether in the past or present, as if such beliefs are what determines who is better or worse when it comes to what makes America good or bad. Which Americans are good or bad. That's the sort of thing fascists tend to get behind rather than the simple focus on what is right or wrong, better or worse, good or bad, regardless our differences having to do with race, culture, religion or sex.

That's what I mean.
