• 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.

    "Wow just wow" isn't a refutation of anything, believe it or not.

    I don't think this demands refutation because it's so absurd.

    Reading the interview, it seems like he thinks men shouldn't have to right to vote, too.

    I guess it's not too surprising. Ann Coulter said something similar.

    If people haven't figured it out by now, the GOP has been a big fan of the strategy of "When it comes to the groups that don't tend to vote for us, instead of finding ways to legitimately win some of their support, let's just find way to make it so it's harder for them to vote".

    I guess the rules on who is and who is not allowed to vote is debatable. Felons and juveniles probably not. But women..? Lol. Yeah right. :rolleyes:

    When someone serves up an easy pitch, it's kind of disappointing for people to bunt it.

    If you want to just signal to everyone else how morally and intellectually superior you are by dismissing an argument or position out of hand as being too absurd to even warrant being addressed, that's your prerogative. I would suggest you reconsider that tactic, though. It doesn't work nearly as well anymore as you might think.

    Do you think so? It just makes me sick to my stomach to think about it.

    I have a great grandfather that's alive. But boy his mind isn't that great.... Should people with limited mental capacity be allowed to vote when they can barely recognise their own family?

    Does he vote? Can he fill out the ballot on his own? I guess I think that if he is involved in the process and he is interested in it, great. I would have a problem with a relative just filling out the ballot, though.

    No my point is really that he is eligible to vote though. If i wanted I could say c'mon grandad I'll help you. I just don't think there's any stipulations around mental competence.

    Do you think his say in how your government and society function should be just as equal and valid as anyone else's?

    So where would you draw the line on whether someone has the sufficient capacity to understand the effects of what they're voting for?

    Well thats a good question. Extremes are easy of course... its those on the blurred line that becomes difficult to define. Im pointing out my frustration that I cant vote and I make an effort to know whats going on. But if I walked my g grandad to a polling station he would be allowed to.
