    Good grief! My youngest two children both were QUITE shy as babies and toddlers, I can’t even remember how many times they hid AND cried when even church members came up to them even while they were in a parent’s arms –heck, my son was nine months old before we got to sit through a whole sermon without being buzzed down to the nursery because he was INCONSOLABLE, and the lovely lady in charge of the nursery had a GIFT for babes and toddlers (she was also a kindergarten teacher) This woman needs to take a step back and start LOOKING for some positive–after all, there’s a reason for that old cliche, you find what you look for.

    He probably paid a portion of the first fine because technically the sidewalk IS still there….his yard has just buried it up to…looks like a couple of feet or so on the upper slope. At this point, to uncover the sidewalk, he’d not only have to shovel the snow–but also dig out the sidewalk–a MUCH more significant job indeed!

    If the concern is actually for safety–a partial job would be more dangerous, since it would merely expose ice…or a muddy slope…making a treacherous path indeed. Pedestrians are better off walking the street, or hiking over the snow.

    I don’t think Prime Minister Netenyahu was alluding to us as Esther….I believe HE was in the position of Esther, and we (America) would be the King.

    This article is a quite civil confirmation of exactly what you are saying. Inclusion isn’t the point at all–Murphy showed zero problem with full inclusion, right up to and including loving homosexual individuals, “investing” in relationships with them–but that is NOT enough, it is NEVER enough until we celebrate their debauchery.

    What you say concerning your youngest daughter touches my heart. I have a similar issue with one of mine. She left for college and joined lambda. I have never been so grateful for reformed theology.

    Please quit spamming your illogical junk—as IF there must be an image of someone surviving till today for that person to have existed!

    Also, the word you’re using for “judge” is more accurately translated condemn–which makes perfect sense. It’s exactly like the word used in the 6th commandment is most accurately translated ‘murder’, rather than kill—which is why Jesus didn’t command the Roman Centurion to quit his day job ;) Christians are actually commanded to ‘judge rightly’ — or “discern” -another form of ‘judging’. It’s condemnation we are to avoid, much like vengeance–which is the Lord’s. All judgement has been given to the Son. :)

    For some reason I’m not able to reply to tomkus, so I’m clicking the next reply available ;)

    @tomkus AMEN! Biblical description of heaven “no eye has seen, no ear heard, no mind conceived” –Islamic description–supernatural eternal orgies! o.0

    The reaction of people to the stimuli??? I am laughing out loud! What pray tell exactly is the correct stimuli required to take one from hatefully attempting to exterminate a people to devoutly serving those same people unto death?? e.g Saul->Paul

    He should have made the argument without throwing anything.

    To argue that there can be such a thing as “gay marriage” is to argue that Jesus didn’t need to be crucified and/or that G*d didn’t understand what homosexuality is really about.

    Such an argument is in complete denial of 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 specifically in verse 11 where it says “WERE”. There is a change made possible by taking on the yoke of Jesus. Utterly ignoring not just the handful of verses specifically addressing homosexuality, but the many many more addressing the positive exhortations to purity, fruitfulness, holiness and family life is to choose it’s opposite, which results in death.

    Glue factory fits perfectly–perhaps a Freudian slip on your part. That is exactly the difference between G*d ordained heterosexual marriage and man ordered “gay marriage”: Blessings and curses, death and life are put before us–choose life.

    If this florist refused to service a funeral on the grounds that the deceased was gay THEN we could say she was refusing to serve homosexuals. Until such a time, she is merely refusing to celebrate something that scripture clearly calls an abomination. I have yet to read of a single case where a Christian business refused service for a birthday, a funeral, a party —ONLY weddings….as a matter of fact, haven’t several of these litigious “couples” been long time customers of some of these establishments?

    Except it’s not mere service and never has been service and I’m 100% positive you know this. NO baker has ever denied to sell cupcakes or eclairs to gay folks (who perhaps if they actually were a bit more “gay” in the original sense of the word wouldn’t be so damned litigious) no–it’s never been the intention of ANY Christian business owner to refuse any and ALL service, but instead the VERY specific service of WEDDING and ONLY wedding service. Birthdays, funerals, retirements, celebrations or memorials of ANY other type are (and always have been) perfectly acceptable.

    Ah…I see, so, perhaps based upon what you’re saying here, since Jesus “sided” with an adulterous woman (as I recall the story, He refused to condemn her and instructed her to go and SIN NO MORE) this elderly florist should perhaps charge a little extra and then donate all proceeds to support groups for those seeking a way out of the homosexual lifestyle. ;) -being sure to display signage to that effect of course.

    Nope–that’s so far off, it’s in another field entirely. IF I were a betting woman, (and I’m not) I’d bet that every single person commenting on here who sees this as an agenda driven attack on what the word “family” actually means–would rejoice at the sight of parents with (obviously) adopted kids, families with different “races”, multigenerational households (as in Grandma and/or Grandpa too), dirt poor (but rich in love) families and families of varied cultures!

    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’)
