That's actually how we see all of you, period.

At least you have identified a point of bias you can work to alleviate.

You see, there are no "Americans" when you come right down to it.  At least, not the ones you mean.  We come from all over the rest of the world.  So any criticism or praise of American aesthetics is not really saying anything abut us, but the rest of the world as a whole.

"Real" Americans look like this (or something like them):

Seriously though, I've often noticed how Republicans are fugly.

While I would love to piss on repubs, I just don't think this is especially true.  For starters, most people are not all that great looking, repub or otherwise.

I think politicians, in general, tend to be older, since electing 20 year olds to lead us is probably not a great idea.  So age is probably part of it. 

And there are plenty of good looking right wingers you could point to.  S.E. Cupp is good looking. Former Texas Gov Rick Perry is pretty good looking.  Pretty much every female news caster on Fox "News" not named Greta is hot.  I thought Michelle Bachman was good looking, if you ignored the spinning-pinwheel eyes:

If you didn't know she was criminally insane, you'd probably think, "man, she's pretty." 

In all, I don' think repubs are any more or less ugly than anyone else.

General Religious Discussion / Re: Christians, please explain

God knew eventually the Romans would accept Jesus,spread Christianity through Europe. God knew the Spanish and Europeans would spread it to the new world. God however was not concerned about the trail of a few hundred million dead,just a cost of spreading the word. God,you must remember is not shy about killing things to get his message out. Does that about cover the Christian response?

Link is broken, got a 404 error when I went to it.

I guess demons decided to go after it...or maybe it was Christians.

Can someone explain this verse to me?  Mary says, "My spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior" (Luke 1:47).

Isn't this saying that Mary is a "sinner"?  If someone needs a savior in Christianity doesn't that mean this Savior will save someone from the consequence of their sins?  If Mary was sinless then she wouldn't need a "Savior".....right?

Mary was[1] still considered a sinner.  While she did not, by the grace of god, have original sintaint, she still had a sin nature.  She could still commit personal sin (also, hilariously, called actual sin).
 1. is?  Tense is a little difficult to figure out at times.  Don't know if someone who achieves salvation is still a sinner or not either.

I'm curious to know something. Is there no limit on the amount of lying, cheating, and stealing that a person can commit?

What do you mean by limit?

For example, there is a limit to how much lying, cheating, and stealing I will tolerate.  I don't know if you should really bother about what my limits are though.

If a being of infinite compassion were to show up, would you expect that entity to have a limit on what s/he/it will tolerate?

He was singing 'If I Had A Rocket Launcher.'

Course there are limits;

how long liers are awake for
how long they live
how many people are listening

Evangelicals are now using  private jets so they can push new boundaries on what the human lying limit is.

You'd better hope not, or you won't even get to see the door before they toss you downstairs.

Is it me, or are most Republicans fugly and fat?

I kind of assumed that's how all non-Americans see all non-celebrity Americans.

That's actually how we see all of you, period. If a celebrity with an English-sounding name is attractive, we assume them to be from Canada, or the UK, or Ireland, or literally any place except the USA. Google "Olivia Wilde". Until a minute ago, when I looked her up on Wikipedia, I assumed she was Canadian.
Seriously though, I've often noticed how Republicans are fugly. Nixon, Lincoln, Bush (Sr. and Jr. - they both look like idiots), Romney, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan (he looks like he has skin cancer or something)...[1] It's like they picked the most unattractive human beings they could find in their own party. Obama's nicer-looking than them, and even he's not attractive.
 1. I wasn't citing them from memory, FYI. That's what Wikipedia is for.
