    I think you hit the nail on the head there. So many departments within the CIA were/are so eager to “carry water” for the current administration, that they will suppress true information and manufacture other information. But because this is across the board, there is no wrongdoing???

    Let’s get this straight, Jeff Bezos donates literally 2.5 THOUSAND times more money FOR “gay marriage” – and not a single boycott is called, this poor fellow donates 1 grand in support of traditional marriage–and they want him fired and are organizing to execute that plan. “Tolerance” my big toe.

    “… Respect for these rights requires that it tolerate expressions of opinion that differ from its own or that it may find abhorrent.” -unless of course opinion differs from the extreme political left.

    Where was the Humane Society, or Animal Control? It seemed obvious from the officer’s tone of voice that he was very ill equipped emotionally to handle this situation. He kept mentioning he’d been bitten by another dog. That fear certainly seems to have been his deciding factor.

    Speaking as someone who was rushed by her neighbor’s full grown German Shepherd just a few days ago–while in the middle of the street, across from a different neighbor’s house (the owner had stopped at the neighbor’s house and was blocking me in–as she came out of the house, her dog decided to rush me hitting me hard enough to break skin through 3 layers of clothing, one being a heavy coat.) I completely understand this officer’s fear…but that dog was no where near as “aggressive” as the German Shepherd I live next to. In my humble opinion, his actions were dictated by his previous experience, more than this particular situation. (I’m now traveling with treats).

    While I agree, the owner bears ultimate responsibility, as he was in violation of the leash law, it seems completely understandable that during a birthday party, the dog could quite easily get out–and it’s equally obvious that his neighbors weren’t controlling their animals either. He’s suffered the ‘bad luck’ of encountering a scared officer, more concerned with asserting his rights than protecting the life of any mere pet. This officer exercised a permanent solution to a very temporary and still only potent

    You just hit the nail on the head.

    @SN000P1E “If scripture alone (Sola Scriptura) is the ONLY authority for all Christians but 2 different sets of Christians gather in Jesus name in 2 different churches and {come} to different and opposing conclusions which church is correct? ”

    The obvious answer is of course whichever one is actually in agreement with scripture. We do not have a case here where there is a possible second correct interpretation–one that allows practicing homosexuals to be celebrated as living in a godly fashion. No where in scripture is there any possible reading supporting such a doctrine…there are however several prophesying that such a day was coming when people would no longer tolerate sound doctrine. We’re here.

    I just ran into an EXCELLENT article addressing both these issues (commitment to one’s progeny and ‘gay marriage’)

    Wow! So–now this author changed the title and tacked on a small paragraph about gay marriage…and this is a “faith” article? What faith is as clear as mud–but this author’s perspective certainly is coming into view. ;)

    Pro-Life advocates are exactly that. Calling them “anti-abortionists” merely shows your own bias. But then, that’s par for the course when it comes to journalists and abortion language, isn’t it.

    The Guttmacher Institute is the research arm of Planned Parenthood, and they have their agenda. In Texas, the Texas Tribune (I believe) had a poll suggesting sixty some percent of respondents were in favor of the bill which eventually passed.

    Wow…you are speaking from extreme ignorance, and I seriously mean no insult by that—you are woefully naive (the nicest word I can think of to describe such serious lack of knowledge) concerning the facts of Jesus (Yehashua) Of course his teachings predate His incarnation–He’s the same G*d! He taught exactly (and only) what His Father sent Him to teach. Everything He preached was straight from what we “Christians” call the Old Testament–what He would have referred to as the Law (Torah), the Writings and the Prophets.

    Try reading some translations of early “church fathers” Like Tertullian, Irenaeus, Eusebius, Heck, just pick up any old Bible, and read from Luke, Acts and a few epistles and then try that ‘Jesus as a “character” and myth hogwash on for size again. Far more honest and intellectually rigorous men (C.S. Lewis comes to mind) have traveled that route and found it for the absolute mire that it is.

    The fact that there are “counterfeits” in no way whatsoever lessens or negates the existence of the true Messiah. It’s mere lack of imagination that keeps you from even contemplating the existence of not only G*d but Satan.

    ‘The “recorded” miracles were not written down until some 40 years after Christ’s death. Tell me exactly how much you remember after 40 years or more? just sayin.’ –Joker50

    Only people starting from the assumption that miracles don’t exist think that the gospels were written 40 years after Christ’s ascension (or crucifixion, if they will even acknowledge that) -but a blunt straightforward reading of Luke and Acts shows that accounts had already been written when Luke wrote those books–and he traveled with Paul, who wrote most of the epistles. Peter and Paul were martyred under Nero (according to Eusebius, Tertullian, and others) and Nero died in 68AD. This means that at least Matthew, Mark and Luke, plus Acts and all of the epistles of both Paul and Peter were written by the mid sixties, and of course many were written much earlier (by at least a decade)

    Now, I can quote many of my great grandmother’s favorite sayings, as well as recount many favorite family stories about her–and she was born 100 years before me (I’m named after her) These are mere “family histories” -mere stories–of no salvific import and I was born well into the age of television–you sir, fail to imagine. That you question people’s memory concerning miracles even 40 years later, demonstrates that lack aptly.

    In reply to the story Did Jesus Christ Really Exist?

    Just so I have this straight…Jefferson, well after his wife’s death, took up with his dead wife’s little half sister, quite possibly impregnating her when she was 16, and he in his 40′s….THAT’S pedophilia…buuut Mohammed, with how many wives already, consummating a three year old “marriage” with Aisha at NINE is just fine and dandy?

    The biggest difference I can easily see between YHWH and Allah, is that YHWH takes no delight in the death of the wicked, and indeed loves all his Creation, as He says in Is. 49, it is too little for His Servant to save Jacob alone, but He will save all the nations. Allah on the other hand deliberately blinds and hates all kafirs. (Koran 6:111, 40:35, 33:60 and many many more)

    Every single tweet of that address is an incitement to violence; shame on them.

    @ZERO5692 et al I’ve seen a lot of people bringing up Matthew 19:4-6 But even after skimming 12 pages (currently the end) I’ve not seen even one person bring up what comes directly after those verses—which answers ZERO’s doubts that this subject is indeed covered by that context:

    “Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way. 9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

    10 The disciples *said to Him, “If the relationship of the man with his wife is like this, it is better not to marry.” 11 But He said to them, “Not all men can accept this statement, but only those to whom it has been given. 12 For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother’s womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it.”

    So there you go. Marry one woman for life, or be a eunuch. The ONLY acceptable sex is between man and wife….and that’s precisely why it was called a “hard teaching”

    I’d highly recommend Walid Shoebat’s “God’s War on Terror”, which outlines End Times prophecy from an Eastern perspective….he’s been speaking about expecting to see a renewed caliphate for years now. (He’s a former PLO terrorist, and Muslim Brotherhood member).

    @Chet–Hmph, you’re twisting scripture there bub. Both the verse just before and the verse right after make it clear that it’s people within their fledgling community who are to be held to these standards–not the people surrounding them. Regardless, as with every single other similar command, they were time and/or people specific, as opposed to perpetual. Islam’s command to kill the unbelievers is for all time.
