Great argument Con, I don't know how I'll follow that.


Mark 10:14 “Let the little children come to me. Don’t keep them away. God’s kingdom belongs to people like them.” 


Jesus is saying that, who is also God. If I were FREEDO I would change the font color to red, but alas I am WSA.

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

Whether you're rich or whether you're poor
It matters not to Him
He remembers where you're going
Not where you've been

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

If your heart is troubled
Don't worry, don't you fret
He knows that you have heard His call
And he won't forget

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

All around the world tonight
His children rest assured
That He will watch and He will keep us
Safe and secure

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world [1]

Past perforamce indicates future results. Most people who have strong religious conviction have been raised in their respective faiths as children. Furthermore, the bible praises innocence which those of youthful age are more likely to possess.


Luke 18:17
Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.

Vote for me! Unless you're libertarian and you don't believe in voting as it implicitly supports the state.
