No, but I would assist the invaders

My country needs a change in management. I would offer food, shelter, ammunition or whatever else I could to assist the invaders in their noble cause. I would also provide/supply clear directions to the nearest Government Offices/buildings that ... I dislike the most (laughing and taking pictures as the civic buildings burned to the ground)   more

No, my country isn't worth fighting for

Why should I lay down my life to protect those with riches and power in my country. Let the rich and powerful do the fighting for themselves.

Who is invading
Mister_Man says2015-09-17T15:52:47.3069719Z
Russia obviously
biggest_pro_going says2015-09-17T17:35:02.2802984Z
If "your country" is Russia then it's unlikely. It depends on witch country your from. Basically if your in the USA Russia is invading, and if your from anywhere else in the world its the USA.
Mister_Man says2015-09-17T17:48:43.8460418Z
That's why I said Russia, because most people on here are American. But yeah if it's anywhere else, it would be murrica invading lol.

I dont think brits are in any fear of the US invading their soil.
biggest_pro_going says2015-09-17T18:28:03.5006189Z
If Jeramey Corbyn gets in charge us Brits may not be as safe as we think from the USA.
biggest_pro_going says2015-09-17T18:28:42.5325695Z
Just joking anyway
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-09-17T18:46:14.9916874Z
Oh man yeah. Actually, if that happens you guys should start fearing yourselves. Orwell's 1984 nightmares coming true.

Nexus-mind wow typical conservative mindset yeah how dare we be tolerant of other religions and other people in general because of course only Christians who believe as you believe are correct in their thinking right? And as for gay people homosexuality is completely natural go learn some basic biology either start espousing the beliefs of Jesus your so called lord and savior or stop pretending to be a christian
reece says2015-09-18T06:34:20.2475750Z
@Nexus_Mind 1500 animals have been known to possess homosexual behaviors. So if you wanna talk about nature, i'm here.
Mister_Man says2015-09-18T14:03:17.0144443Z
"This may upset people but what I speak is the truth" - And that's where I stop reading, lol.
Nexus_Mind says2015-09-18T15:17:14.5768474Z
Dietorangesoda, of course I would believe that only those who think as I do would be correct just as you believe those who believe as you do are correct. As for Jesus's teachings, the Bible has been altered by man many times over. Take for example the King James Version. In the KJV I read about love, forgiveness, and peace but it also said to murder those who exhibit homosexual behaviors. Does that sound correct? I don't think so. I will not follow that because it is a contradiction to the Ten Commandments. You see, we don't have the original text therefore we can only make assumptions about the true will of God and the teachings of Christ but I do believe that the lesson of love and forgiveness is the truth. I would learn to love and forgive but love is an emotion that I can and do live without. As for forgiveness, I'll forgive when your errors have been corrected.
dietorangesoda says2015-09-18T15:31:00.2277400Z
And this is the problem with the 3 abrahamic religions either believe as i do or your wrong despite the fact that there are so many interpretations and sects and yes your right the bible has been changed so many times so how can you believe that the ten commandments that your following were different at one time this is the problem in particular with the bible because it's been translated and altered so much in history yeah the qu'ran is full of crap too but it at least is still preserved in original arabic so therefore they have some legitimacy to their claims once again religion nothing more then a bunch of inaccuracies
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-09-21T14:15:21.6319606Z
Well and then theres the problem with the non-believers who want to refute anything religious so much so that they would go out of their way to be the exact polar opposite of anything religious types claim, be it good or bad. They arent they type really to take good intent and roll with it. They lack what you would call a "live and let be" type attitude.

@dietorangesoda In regards to Christianity, the Ten Commandments are one of the few parts of the Bible that everyone agrees on. They are the only actual rules that God himself gave to Moses and have remained relatively unchanged through their multiple translations. As for the qu'ran, the scripture was shared orally for much of its earlier history (Mohammed was illiterate and could not read or write) until someone decided to write it down. It may not be as completely accurate to the original verses that Mohammed spoke. And please use punctuation.
dietorangesoda says2015-09-22T01:26:58.3435073Z
Once again i ask if the bible has changed so much thru the years and we all agree it has then how do you know the ten commandments have not changed as well?
58539672 says2015-09-22T03:45:42.0239750Z
@dietorangesoda If the ten commandments have changed, it is not anytime recent. A Toran that was dated to be 800 years old and a Bible that is dated to be 1600 years old both have the same ten commandments. Both documents had modification that can clearly be seen today, like the order of some books being different and a few verses being changed, but the ten commandments were still the same for at least 1600 years. Anything beyond that is speculation at best.
58539672 says2015-09-22T03:56:05.4275633Z
@dietorangesoda The ten commandments are not incredibly specific and are up for interpretation on more than one occasion. It is not difficult to maintain them, regardless of any language translation errors.
dietorangesoda says2015-09-22T03:56:59.5146595Z
Were these books in english or another language?
58539672 says2015-09-22T03:58:42.4913837Z
@dietorangesoda The Torah is in Italian. The Bible is in Greek.
dietorangesoda says2015-09-25T06:53:10.7616931Z
Ok so once again not a valid translation
58539672 says2015-09-25T16:14:37.2988352Z
@dietorangesoda It is as valid a translation as is physically available to us. Those are the oldest legible copies we have of the texts. Given the fact that the ten commandments haven't changed in 1600 years and with multiple language translations, it is reasonable enough to assume that hasn't changed much in general. To say that the ten commandments we use today are different than the ones carved onto the stone tablets is a claim without evidence, because we don't have a copy that dates back that far.
