Just goes to show it isn't just religious freaks who go in for quote mining.

And Paine was a revolutionary but didn't care for the Constitution.

Were not they all 'revolutionaries'?

They were indeed.

But after the revolution was over, there were Federalists (like Washington) and anti-Federalists.

No reason for a military alliance against the British (and free trade area) to have a strong central government, you know.

Souls, like Jesus, do not exist except in the mind of humans. :wink:

Purely definitional.

Irrelevant if souls do not exist.

The point is the "soul" is the self. Synonyms, not something mystical.

I sure have been seeing a lot of headlines recently about sex scandals or crimes involving "Men of God".

Let's see:

Everything to Know About the Pastor Bill Hybels Sexual-Misconduct Scandal (Prominent "megachurch" pastor)

Former Maine pastor charged with raping a child

Auckland pastor jailed for sexually abusing two girls, one while her mother was dying

Alabama evangelist Acton Bowen jailed in Hoover on child sex charges involving young boy

Carlsbad Pastor Sentenced to 15 Years for Child Molestation

Mobile pastor found guilty of rape and sex abuse of a child

The Auckland one is Australia, the rest are all in USA.

Probably not an exhaustive list either, just those on the first page of search results for "pastor" on Google news right now. The stories are all recent ones, within the last 3 days or so.
