  1. And considering that Christianity is all about a bigger stick and a bigger carrot. Before this religion, Judaism, its precursor, did not believe in divine forgiveness or hell. It's amazing how successful a larger reward and bigger punishment can be. And that is the only reason these concepts were introduced. To gain larger control over the masses. And of course, it worked.

But it is still refreshing to have to real judges on a music competition show.

The reason environmentalists and other lunatics are considered liberal is because they believe in changing the law to achieve their desired outcome. So please stop preaching for people that are liberal, because such a group does not exist. People with liberal leanings have a wide range of belief
