Does it occur to any of these families to move to the country, and get their kids away from these gang influences?

Libraries been the bastions of progressivism that they are these days, it can be hard to check out a Bible from them. Many keep only one, and have it in the “reference” section, which means it can’t leave the building.

Same here in central New York state. One day we had snow, rain, wind, calm, warmth, sunshine, rainbows and hail, all on the same day.

Explain how it got as far as a Schoolhouse Rock video then. No, I can. The fear-mongerers did not yet have the scientists in their pockets. But remember that the young scientists of today are just as indoctrinated by the state as are all their peers, and therefore not rational human beings.

As a Christian who moves in mostly Christian circles, but a fairly broad range of those, let me assure you that I’ve never met even one “evangelical fundamentalist theocratic fascist,” so I think you can stop worrying now.

Yeah, I wish I didn’t agree with you, but I’m afraid we are at that point. Did you see that mess that went on at the opening of the new tunnel in Switzerland?

I’m guessing you are talking about Mormons. It’s amazing how Mormons get so many of the procedures right, while getting so off track on the theology. It pains me that the true Church can’t get its act together like the Mormons do, sometimes. Still, we do have missionaries, and we do witness of our faith. And we do suffer for Christ at times.

Time to google something for yourself it seems.
Although if google is tweaking its algorithms these days, who knows what you’ll find.

He was a teenager. I agree he should have been on a watch list though.

So she goes without you? Or she only goes where you let her? Doesn’t she know how to hitch up the buggy on her own?

That is not different from saying the person is smart.

You’re saying then that no gay people have a grain of sense in their heads? Very intolerant of you.
Lots of bigots on the left. Byrd was Hillary's 'mentor' before she was Donnie's donor recipient. Back when he was a garden state/variety lib.

I was just noticing it, and it explained to me why I was having no luck with anything on this site while my adblocker was temporarily uninstalled for the last few weeks. I am certainly happy that it is working again!
Thanks for saying that I generally have a lot to contribute! You made my day.

If only there were a dead cat in a shoebox running for president, I’d have a candidate I could support! At least it couldn’t veto anything, so congress would have no excuses not to fix stuff.
That's about taxes, not votes. No one is entitled to my vote.
Bee: Voting is the responsibility of a citizen.
Not just any tax, but the temple tax, paid with a coin with Caesar's face struck on it.
Taking part in a government that is responsive to the needs and grievances of its citizens is the responsibility of a citizen, barber2.
A non-vote can be a powerful statement about the current state of such a government.
termyt - a non-vote means nothing. It is non-existent so it has no meaning.
In North Korea, there is only one name on the ballot. If you refuse to check that one name, they shoot you.
It seems to me even North Korea realizes there is something said by a ballot not cast.
It means to OBEY THE LAWS OF THE LAND UNTIL THOSE LAWS GO AGAINST GOD'S LAWS. Understand now?
Render unto Caesar had nothing to do with taxes!
Most people just don’t get the meaning behind “render unto Caesar.”
In the time of Jesus, good Jews did not carry roman money because it had a picture of Caesar on it and he was considered a god to the Romans. This violated the first commandment. When Jesus asked the Pharisee to show him a coin, and the guy pulled out a roman coin, Jesus was gigging him by pointing out that he was carrying roman money and all the negative implications that carried for a good Jew.
Jesus was not saying anything about subservience to the government, he was pointing out that the guy was a hypocrite for violating the Jewish ban on roman money.
To God ultimate Sovereignty belong. In the Biblical era God chose who would be King ( notably from people who were not seeking power). When people vote They believe they are choosing who will be in power but in truth it is always whomever God has allowed to rule for the outwork ing of His purposes. Even Nebuchanezzar was allowed dominion at the pleasure of God . Thus, it is not by human hand that any ruler actually comes to power and it is not by human hand that any are actually removed, But our Christian devotion to God alone ( above Caesar ) includes respecting His sole right to place I to power even those who would test His Sovereignty and His people, By voting , the Christian accomplishes nothing but demonstrating a lack of Faith,
Jesus is still saying render to Caesar what is Caesar's

As it was for the Padres, I’m sure they didn’t want to invite someone who could throw better than their own pitchers.
