    Hello everyone,

    To tell you a little bit about myself, I grew up really close by here. I have had a lot of people in my life that doubt me. I have no opinion; I come with open ears, and a lot of questions for other members here.

    Thanks

    Ben

    Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.

    No opinion and lots of questions? Sounds like fun

    Almost too good to be true, huh?

    Course, that's just my opinion.

    Welcome to the forum, Ben.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty
    -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.
    - ABRAHAM LINCOLN, letter to Joshua F. Speed, August 22, 1855

    George, I have my profile picture with three animals. And I am so glad you chose to post a picture of the donkey. In my occupation, I transport people different places, So I for sure resemble my self to be just like the donkey. I enjoy meeting new people, listening to trials in their life without judgement.

    I am still disappointed at how the words of the bible have changed throughout the years.

    As you may know, in 1827 a very nobel man president elect Andrew Jackson decided to start a movement in the United States. Governing authorities at the time did not take favor in such acts. Then had a cartoon artist draw a picture of Andrew Jacksons face, over the face of the Donkey. This would be published in the newspapers around the world with slander. This slander has lived on as an abuse of judgement on people with the name J*** A**. Andrew Jacksons party would fall into the same slander, publishing pictures of the elephant stomping on deformed animals as retaliation.

    Unfortunately, this turned the offspring into a heard of animals that act like they have been abused for over 190 years.

    I would much rather think of the Donkey as having some of his true characters. One with self preservation, a reputation for being stubborn with a keen sense of curiosity, that gives them the ability to provide safe travels for their riders. And that he did. Quite notably for whom?

    Patrick jane, everyone finds fun in different ways. Out of curiosity, what is it about speaking to someone that doesn't have an opinion that makes it "fun"?
