Someone should tell Mr. King that the “Fly-Over” people who elected those representatives are sick and tired of sending their children off to war to defend a bunch of Progressive, Marxist New Yorkers who ridicule them, look down on them, scoff at their love of God, Country and Constitution and call them names like Mr. King is doing….again.

Letucepray: Please read the 1st Amendment and grow some tolerance, your bigotry is as ignorant as it is ugly.
The first amendment is about the freedom of speech. I'm talking about consideration for others who don't share your beliefs and would rather not hear you pray to an invisible deity. You're allowed to do this by law, but why do you want to, even Jesus advised you not to pray that way.
You ask me to be tolerant, how about you be respectful as well.
Why would I want to follow the advice of someone who, on the onset, refuses to understand the truth of the bible and the foundation of this country? You talk about “decency” yet if you wanted a frank talk, you would not attack someones belief in order to replace it with your own.
Should we follow your advice and remove all moral boundries to be replaced by your idea of how things should go, instead of what is revealed in the Holy Bible?
BTW: You used Jesus's words incorrectly. It is imporant to understand who Jesus was talking to and why in order to understand why Christians should "pray without ceasing".
I'm curious to understand your claims of " truth to the bible" and " the moral boundaries revealed in the bible"
Those are pretty big claims, would you care to give evidence for both/ either?
Re: “I'm curious to understand...” By reading your comments, I can derive that you are not curious. As a for instance, I put forth the truth that Jesus was talking about a specific action by some Jews in the location and manner of which they pray. To this, you do not respond, even though it disproved your assertion. Further, “those are pretty big claims” are directed towards me, individually, when I only declare what is in the Holy Bible. So, instead of attempting to perform ad hominem directly, you attempt to do so subversive by attacking the messenger and not the source.
Now that we understand each other, let us continue – not for your benefit nor mine, but for God's glory.
Re: “give evidence” - I refer you to Leviticus and Proverbs. I would strongly recommend that you read the first 5 books of the New Testament first, in order to understand the books in the Old Testament as many people get confused. This confusion for many reasons, 1 for the translations are geared for 12 grade reading comprehension from before the 1940's (todays 12 grade level reading is far from the earlier – more like 8th grade from the 1930's). Additional problems exists due to words that do not have direct translations. As an example, the English language only has 1 word for “love”, there are 11 words for love in the Greek language – 3 of which are used in the New Testament.
As an example of the translation problems, I refer you to John 21:15-17. Note that all English translations use the word “love” throughout all 3 verses - this is incorrect. There are 2 different words being used in these short verses that make it take own a new/different meaning that the English translations provides. Here are the definitions first:
Agape: (see Merriam-Webster – noun) The complete, unconditional love of God for humans
Phileo: Friendship affection, fondness
Now, in verse 15 & 16, Jesus uses the Greek word Agape, whereas Peter response with the word Phileo. Now, in verse 17 Jesus asks Peter if he “Phileo” him (brings himself down to Peter's level of love). This has multiple implications due to Peter's word being broken when he denied Jesus 3 times and thus the reason why Peter is upset.
One can see how translations can cause confusion when one does not research the Holy Bible for verses that they do not understand.
Again, I ask you to provide some evidence. You ramble on and on, addressing nothing pertinent. Your hubris towards understanding the ” truth” of the bible explains nothing and impresses me not at all.
Instead of acting like an arrogant bore, answer my question if you can oh learned one.
If you are referring to Matthew 6 : 5-6, it seems fairly simple to understand. I don't know why you think I'm not taking it in the wrong context, or there is some deeper meaning you think I'm not privy to,; I think I used the quote quite well to make my point to a previous comment.
Re: "address nothing pertinent" - My reply was quite explicit in answering your request – to which you, again, did not directly respond – instead you obfuscate in a clear attempt to deflect. If you wish to continue, then by all means respond succinctly. My response is based on my previous question to you – Re: Should we follow your advice and remove all moral boundaries to be replaced by your idea of how things should go, instead of what is revealed in the Holy Bible?
Re: “I ask you to provide some evidence” - To which I replied to your statement by referring you to 2 books within the Holy Bible for the description of the moral boundaries. I answered your query.
Re: “If you are referring to Matthew 6:5-6...” - to which part of my reply do you refer and to which “I used the quote quite well to make my point to a previous comment.”? It is helpful to include a section, however brief, so that readers can easily refer back to comments.
Now, prove the negative that God does not exists, for you are bound by the same requirement of using logic and science in order to prove or disprove the existence or non-existence of God. I would caution you on using verses within the Bible out of context or problems derived from English translations (i.e. Hebrew to English or Greek to English) – for you have already proven that by applying out of context statement “even Jesus advised you not to pray that way”.
Lettuce...Quite simply...it is about faith. And you keep asking for proof of the Lord's existence and proof that the Bible is truth. I have not seen any proof of the opposite. I hope you have a conversation with God soon. Get to know him. We all struggle with our faith and we are all sinners. Nobody is perfect. And...there is proof all around you. All you have to do is open your eyes and your heart. I hope you find Peace.
Prove the Bible is the Word of God? Do you believe in mathematics? Do you believe it's possible for over 40 known authors over a period of several thousand years from varying backgrounds and occupations could each write books that do not contradict each other? What are the odds that below the textual level there are mathematical relationships & geometrical patterns (in the original languages-Hebrew & Greek)? I have studied Genesis 1:1 in Hebrew & John 1:1 in Greek for over 6 months alone; the mathematical precision defies human logic.
Study this website's claims & then get back to me; say, like at least in 6 months and tell me what you have learned (if anything). http://homepage.virgin.net/vernon.jenkins/

Why is it that angry atheists don’t understand or adhere to the 1st Amendment that protects the free exercise thereof. Why wouldn’t Atheists want our open and diverse society to openly practice their beliefs? Why is it only there views to exterminate everyone else’s that they consider permissible in the public’ taxpayers square?
Did you read the letter the Atheists sent him? How are atheists not adhering to free speech? The Chancellor was not prevented from spewing his message of hate and falsehoods to the student body. He was merely being asked to apologize to those he insulted with his little diatribe .. As the head of a publicly funded institution of higher learning, he really should know better.

I’d like to know more about those soldiers and all sides in this mess. There is a lot of bad, evil history that happened in the Ukraine between the Communist Russians and the German Nazis. I’d like to see Glenn Beck or Buck Sexton get into this story.

It didnt look like the president left the golf course. It looked like a blue tarp, podium and flag was erected on the tee box and the president slipped on a navy blue sport coat. In less than 8 minutes he was shown swinging his shot. I don’t believe the president ever stepped off the golf course. He read a prepared comment in the teleprompter and continued to play.

The real confusion for me is coming from Tringale. He’s the only one who knows that he intended to hit the 3 inch putt, while to everyone else, officials, caddies, fans, etc nothing happened. Tringale certainly has demonstrated his level of personal integrity but in his after thoughts, he is only confusing everyone. I think he should be told not to worry, take the cash, take the finish and understand that nothing happened whether he thought so or not….but I’d love to see the Golf Channel or ESPN with the footage and a rules expert comment on it. If you have a link to that, I’d like to see it.

How was that a stroke? Can you explain what happened?
1, If his club head passed over the ball, never making contact, and the ball never moved and he never grounded his club or it was not “immediately” grounded prior to the so called swing, what in the world happened?
2 he never grounded the club? Right?
3. he never placed the club immediately behind the ball? Right?
4 He never addressed the ball either but a recent rule change this year no longer requires addressing, Right?
So what happened? We see pros walk up to a 3 inch putt very casually and never address the ball and just tap it in. So what exactly did he do to make this 3 inch putt a 2 stroke attempts?
@Beckster2 I clearly understand your logical points...A USGA rules official will make a final determination for the benefit of Cameron and the rest of the Tour players. The issue at hand is that despite this doubt, Cameron still went a head and signed his score card. All questions or issues must be resolved before hitting from the next hole-- the 12th in this case. With rule officials on every hole, this would have been simple to resolve. In my opinion, regardless if the club was grounded or not, it was his intent to make a stroke--- all gray areas for sure. Hope his helps.

Americans considering ISlam as a religion ought to consider that places like Saudi Arabia have been importing African slaves for centuries but curiously, there is no African-Saudi population in that Muslim country or any others in the neighborhood. Americans, especially African-Americans should consider that before they “convert” to that….(counting to 1,000) religion.
Beckster2, OMG the names says everything anyone would need to know about you. I wonder how much money he has suckered out of you. I bet you have the complete library of his history books, a "bug out bag" and 6 months supply of survival food.

It’s time for the Dept of Justice to start funding law suits against state and local governments and organizations like this for violating the First Amendment guarantee to not to PROHIBIT the free practice thereof….of our religion. We might also start calling Atheists members of a Secular Religion that the government is promoting itself over all others.
