The point is that there just aren't that many feminazis, jews, faggots, nor
"liberals" around to be tormented by. They're mostly one and the same
[read: most jews are "liberals", faggots, and feminazis, and since jews are
only 1.9% of the population, this entire sect can't be much larger than 2%].
Who, then, are the other 8% of the 10% who claim to not belong to a church?
Men like Thomas Jeffereson, who wrote profusely "I am a real Christian", but
who was accused by church leaders themselves to NOT be a Christian just
because he didn't attend their church?
Mr. Jefferson was a FAR, FAR better Christian than jew Billy Graham, or Pat
Robertson, or any of the other "judeo-Christian" ministers who LIE daily on
our national airwaves.
These CIA figures show 84% to be members of churches, up to 8% of this 10%
could be Christians like Mr. Jefferson, and usually "other" includes the 1%
who are Mormons who do profess a belief in Jesus Christ, for a total of 93%
who may be Christians.
Do we KNOW this? No. SHOULD we know this? With jews running Gallup, you
can bet that they'll never be the source to reveal the facts. Could it be
less than 93%? Maybe.
But maybe not.
The most conservative statement would be that between 85% to 93% of
Americans are Christians, and that figure will rise as soon as the jews are
gone (which won't be very long now if our own poll is any indicator

The jews who run Gallup are bending over backwards to distort the results of
their own polls, as evidenced by their actions at censoring the FACTS about
abortion from the internet http://christianparty.net/gallup.htm
Gallup has NEVER been able to get their faggot polls straight, reporting
that only 43% of Americans would vote for laws banning sodomy at the very
same time that 70% of American voters passed laws banning sodomite marriages
So, when their own polls show that 55% were members of Protestant churches,
24% were members of the Catholic Church, 1% were members of the Orthodox
Church, 1% were members of the Mormon Church (for a total of 81% who are
you must question why a Gallup "poll" would report that only "Fifty-six
percent [of Americans] are churched".

What this negative correlation indicates is that affirmative action has been
a "success" [read: all the IDIOTS now attend our "institutions of higher
learning", while the intelligent Americans have become the productive
workers who keep the economy afloat and the taxes paid].

Which is NOT "evidence". It is SPECULATION, piled high and deep, poured on
all levels, but NONE of *this* is proof of "speciation" or even "evolution".

The PROBLEM, of course, is that you have not ONE single fossile, photograph,
bone, picture, or any other solid visible evidence of ANYTHING that
represents the cross between two different "species", which is REQUIRED for
"speciation". Do you?

But you're ignoring the affirmative action which created these "biologists",
coupled with the fact that 91% of Americans have NOT accepted this as a
"theory" at ALL, coupled with the fact that almost half of American
"scientists" don't even accept it as a "fact".
You might believe it--but you ARE in the minority, and you ARE a fool.

Except that what you claim to be "narrow beliefs" are beliefs shared by up
to 93% of Americans, and in this specific case, less than 9% support your
"theory" of evolution.
Plus, as many as 91% want to exile these jews that you claim we're "bigoted"

The Holy Bible goes to great lengths to describe a process by which to
preserve one's race, all the way to exiling the children born to "foreign"
[read: non-Israelite] wives from the land, and banning bastards from the
"Congregation of the Lord" to the tenth generation.
This goes back several thousand years, at least--and now you have to ask
"where your idea that black/jewish marriages are generally illegal outside
the USA comes from"?
It was prohibited for an Israelite to marry a jew, but it was the DEATH
PENALTY for an Israelite tomarry a nigger--and you need to ask "where" this
Try peeking in your dog-eared copy of the Holy Bible.

Even Gallup polls show that only 29% of Americans oppose the teaching of
creation in public schools. If 93% of Americans are Christians, and if all
of the 7% who are not Christians oppose the teaching of creation, then it's
possible that 22% who oppose the teaching of creation are Christians who
don't want the public schools to confuse their own children with such an
important subject, particularly since they've already proven that they can't
even teach math.
So the best guestimate is 89%.
