I am not getting mad just frustrated when people take biblical verses out of context. I have been a Christian for more than 30 years and believe what is in the bible with all of my heart. Just the same as it is easy to take a comment and turn it around on someone is easy if you don’t take into account the background of the discussion. The shellfish verse that you are referring to is intended for people of the Jewish faith not Christianity. In Genesis 9:8-9 it reads, Everything that moves, everything that is alive, is yours for food. Earlier I gave you the green plants, but now I give you everything for food. But you must not eat meat that still has blood in it, because blood gives life. As for the clothing of mixed fibers, this again was for people of the Jewish faith. This was part of the Mosaic law, which was a specific covenant between God and the Jewish people. Once Jesus was crucified and rose again, Isaiah spoke of a new covenant with God. It is abundantly clear that the believer in Christ is not any longer under the Mosaic law in its entirety. There are tons of verses backing this up but I will let you perform a simple search as I don’t have time right now to look all of them up. Just do some reading on the Mosaic law and you will get it. Again, I am not “mad” just frustrated when people who clearly don’t know and understand the word of God use examples incorrectly to prove a point.

Harry, I see you keep throwing in the “trimming your beard” comment. The bible does not say that it is a sin to trim your beard. The bible says that it is a sin to trim your beard if you have taken the Nazarite vow…for everyone else it is fine. It is in Lev 21:5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh. It also mentions it in Lev 21:5, Lev 19:27, Numbers 6:5-6, and Judges 16:17-19, but I will let you look those up on your own. The next time you tell people that they shouldn’t cherry pick verses, maybe you should follow your own advice.

When was the last time you saw a group of 15 year olds playing cops and robbers with nerf guns? Did he mean to say his 5 year old son?
The higher-ups and the taliban should be grateful that they didn't sprinkle bacon-bits on 'em too.

Canada, I would say at that point (climbing into the lion’s home) yes you should shoot them because you are going to die if you don’t. But that is not even close to the same scenario as what is being tried. Granted, he shouldn’t have been following him but he is in his neighborhood, not in a dangerous lion’s den at the zoo. But yes, in that entirely stupid situation, you should shoot the freaking lion.

I was thinking the same thing. What a random comment.

I think it has more to do with how her parents raised her. Both of my kids are in high school right now and they would NEVER treat someone like this. Can’t blame this one on the public school system.

I am not sure which Baptist you are talking about with this comment. I have been a Baptist for over 34 years now and have never felt this way or witnessed anyone who is Baptist act this way. I do try to spread the word when possible but have never forced it onto anyone. If this is what you have experienced, I would say that they have other issues that are causing this reaction. It is not the Baptist faith doing so.

LOL, you have the right to have your brain explode out of the back of your head!

She should have asked the boy if her mother didn’t need fixing, then why is it that she can’t make a baby with who she chose to have a relationship with?
