    How about you "BOTH" know what's going on "EQUALLY" but just have different OPINIONS about it because based on your knowledge or research you came to different conclusions?



    Well, I'm not saying that I have a different opinion.  I actually agree that the religious leaders are wrong.

    Where I disagree is when anyone bashes religious leaders themselves for strongly advocating their positions.  Apparently, people who do this either do not believe in the afterlife, or else they feel that God will somehow give them a pass for bashing His leaders.  They do not see the difference between disagreeing with someone and destroying them personally.

    I also disagree with you, in that I believe I know more about the situation than that other person.  I do not claim to be on equal footing with them.

        I lived in N.C., a good many years and realize how strong the opposistion is from the clergy. but, just because they oppose a lottery does'nt mean i, or anyone for that matter has the right to publicly destroy thier beliefs and dictate, " where they should go". just because thier beliefs are different than others, does'nt give ANYONE  the right to destroy the clergy personally.

        Everyone is entitled to thier own opinion and just because thier opinion is different than others, does'nt mean they should go straight to the " devils chambers", for  what they believe in.

        In order for other people to respect your opinion, you first have to respect thiers, regardless whether they are in agreement or not.! I also think they are wrong for being against something that will benefit everyone in the state of N.C., but thats my opinion.

        Ultimately the people of N.C. will have the final say if it goes to a ballot, and everyone else's opinion will be a thing of the past...!

          I disagree with you, you don't know more than me about the lottery in NC and that's a fact. Just because you're an administrator on this website doesn't mean you know everything. One day you'll realize this.

            Don't worry "byroan", I am rolling my eyes back at you every time I see you have posted a new message.

            Yes, I do know more about it than you.  I have been in communications with multiple legislators over this issue for years.  You, on the other hand, have 9 posts to your name here, with no kind of indication of your affiliation or knowledge, and your only claim to fame so far is that you enjoy taking cheap shots at the expense of your local religious leaders.  A record to be proud of, to be sure.

            People like you have come and gone for years.  At this point, I simply roll my eyes and laugh at it.

              So because I haven't been a member on here for very long you just assume that I know nothing? You have no idea who I've been in contact with or who I know. You don't even know who I am. There's a reason people like me come and go, it's because this site is run by you.

                  I really do believe in the Afterlife and I don't think that GOD gives passes to Bash Religious leaders,we don't need his permission to do that and it must be said that some Religious leaders have a tendancy to "Bash" non-believers or so called "Immoral" people so too be fair about this both sides are guilty of doing this from time to time.

                    I have rarely heard religious leaders wishing non-believers to go to hell.  They normally to try "save" such people rather than hope they go to hell.

                        I strongly agree with a state lottery in north carolina, I feel that it would help our poor state gain the money to help in education and many other issues. In the matter of gambling: people go to virgina and spend their money just the same, what is the difference? I see none! North Carolina needs to get current with the times and become a progressive state.

                              The religious right may be losing this battle.
