• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    This argument has never made sense to me. First of all, we are not an autocracy, so the President being elected by majority would not result in "unfair representation" for rural areas as the President's power is balanced by the legislative branch (most notably the Senate, where all states have equal representation regardless of population) and the Supreme Court. Second, I don't see what would make it "unfair" - one person, one vote is as fair as you can get when selecting an individual to represent the entire country. Third, it's perfectly possible for a presidential candidate to run on a platform that would appeal to both rural and urban voters - while they don't always have the same priorities, there are certainly things that they can agree on, and their differing priorities are not necessarily in opposition to each other.

    A better idea than abolishing the electoral college.

    A better idea towards what end? Adding a new state into an unsound system does nothing to right it.

    Adding a 51 state would help in what way?

    That is EXACTLY why we can't change the US Constitution. It is perfected in its glory and cannot be changed.

    I guess we should get rid of all the amendments! Well, maybe we can keep the first 10, since they were voted in with the Constitution. It does make me ask, though, how can the Constitution be perfect if it required amendments before it had even been approved?

    They would get two Senators in Congress.

    You ask a lot of questions. America doesn't need that kind of attitude. That isn't American.

    And mine, mostly, was as well. Do you really think that I believe we should get rid of all the amendments?

    They could actually get something done in Congress.

    Asking to abolish the electoral college,
    just makes people mad.

    The next version of language will have special tags to deliminate those things which are true vs those things which were written in jest. Right now it is impossible to tell when one is not serious.

    The addition of a DC, or whatever name they took as a state, delegation to congress would not sufficiently tip the balance to make that happen.

    It make me quite happy, guess I don't count?

    That would require modifying the Constitution. That will not happen with this congress.
