At the time though the followers were being pretty persecuted so it would've been tempting to disband, by saying those mean things God kept them together potentially saving an entire race.

Surely this shows that the public trusts the government. The complacency and apathy indicate that everyone's pretty happy really. Everyone votes in difficult times because that's when it actually makes a difference.

I know several illegal handgun owners here in the UK as well as Devonian family friends who own guns for their farming. In fact I know a man who wont sell ketamine as he believes it's a horrible immoral drug but will happily sell on handguns. Their prevalence is horrifying, due to the strict laws only the criminals own firearms, it comes back to the saying; when you outlaw guns, only the outlaws have them.

I've stated that I agree to an extent but i fear we wont wholly agree on this.
To look at it from the other POV do you believe people only follow laws beause they're practical or because they have a moral obligation (or fear of reprisal)?

These are reasonably relevant
Noahdite laws
The seven laws listed by the Tosefta and the Talmud are[3]

   1. Prohibition of Idolatry: You shall not have any idols before God.
   2. Prohibition of Murder: You shall not murder. (Genesis 9:6)
   3. Prohibition of Theft: You shall not steal.
   4. Prohibition of Sexual Promiscuity: You shall not commit adultery.
   5. Prohibition of Blasphemy: You shall not blaspheme God's name.
   6. Dietary Law: Do not eat flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive. (Genesis 9:4)
   7. Requirement to have just Laws: You shall set up an effective judiciary to enforce the preceding six laws fairly.

To take the lord's name in vain includes breaking oaths in His name which are common in the courthouse (http://www.va/archive/catechism/p3s2c1a2.htm). Free speech and cosmopolitanism have killed the others but they used to be incorporated in law. Morals are implicit and not the result of rational thought laws are based upon both; it is a practical issue but it is also a moral issue.

Or the farmers who bother to stay licensed. Which is tedious and costly.

These aren't hugely practical

ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'

TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'

THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'

Guns are getting more and more common in England I've first hand evidence of their increased supply. It's a reaction to the percieved rise in knife crime. They're not being widely used yet but their availability has risen dramatically. The non-criminal possession of guns is generally restricted to those of good standing who hunt or have some other requirement. However in rural areas unlicensed hunting guns are fairly common as there aren't many police about and the guns themselves tend to be inherited

Moral culpability comes into every American murder trial.

Thou shalt not kill is not a practical issue and a similar law is echoed in most religions. Which predate and influenced most legislature.

Britishgent is not an agent, although that would be cool. If you believe that nobody could possibly sanely/rationally kill for their beliefs wouldn't indoctrinatation from an early age be a more likely cause than insanity.

If I murder someone for insulting my religion I'm sure I won't get off as insane.

Not at all that's an exaggerated assertion.

You don't have to be crazy to be misguided.

I wouldn't go so far as the quartet but Satan was created by God and God clearly allows his existance. However if God had never allowed Satan to influence his prophets then they would not have been demonstrating much free will. When you have a dude with God constantly talking to him, commanding him and impressing upon him he's hardly acting freely so there has to be the option of choice which God facilitates through the Devil tempting him. The higher the level of intimacy with the Lord the higher the level of temptation on the flipside. The Devil offered Jesus a lot of power and material wealth when he was testing him.

Due to nature of the conspiracy we hold it's truths to be self-evident. She represents the carnal damned of the globalist heresy.

having graduated the third grade, goldstein takes shit from no one.

You know in Biology they make you watch two people have sex?

Further proof goldstein's issues are caused by sexual abuse.
Particularly because he was home tutored

Hitler used a multi-faceted approach for Nazism to appeal to as many people as possible. A high proportion of Europe is Christian therefore saying that you're inflenced by God will help to achieve their support.

Stop being a fag arguing (convincingly) for FE is a challenge and requires intelligence. Arguing for RE requires google and some copypasting.
