I don’t think Jesus is nearly as picky as you when it comes to who is a Christian. The very first Christian who went to heaven was the criminal who died on the cross next to Jesus. The guy knew NOTHING about Jesus. The only experience the guy had was seeing Jesus pray for the souls of the people who were crucifying him. And that was enough to convince the criminal that Jesus was lord of the earth.
For all we know, that criminal could have thought Jesus was an alien from Neptune, or that Jesus was a magical sorcerer, or that Jesus was a psychopathic lunatic. So knowing ABOUT Jesus really doesn’t have anything to do with salvation. That criminal knew nothing ABOUT Jesus except that Jesus prayed for the people who wanted him dead. That was all he needed to know about Jesus, and that was all the faith Jesus required to say “You will be with me in paradise.”
Stop trying to categorize people as Catholic or Mormon or cults or Christian. Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. Different doctrines and schools of thought DO NOT MATTER. What matters is the heart of the person, and whether or not they believe in Jesus. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the first person ever to attain Salvation was a criminal who had no idea who Jesus was. I think that’s probably the way we all are when we attain Salvation: sinners who don’t know Christ.
That guy didn’t know Jesus was born of a virgin, or anything else about Jesus. But he believed on Jesus, and was saved.

You cannot argue that it’s the government’s job to “keep companies from feeding us poison” and then say that drug and alcohol regulations are “ways to CONTROL us”. Drugs and alcohol are poisons. If it’s the government’s job to keep companies from feeding you poison, doesn’t that also mean it’s their job from preventing drug and alcohol as well?
I think they should just license people to purchase alcohol and drugs the same way they license people to drive. You should have to pass a written exam showing that you are 100% aware of the potential consequences, and you take full financial, legal, and moral responsibility for any actions you take while under the influence of illicit substances. So if you get drunk, have sex, and get pregnant, you cannot get an abortion. Or if you smoke pot and lose your job for failing a drug test, you can’t file for unemployment. Stuff like that.
I think that’s the BEST and ONLY way to legalize this stuff, and make it so that the consequences apply specifically to the people who choose to engage in substance abuse, rather than inflicting their bad habits and consequences on everybody else.
Water is poison if one consumes too much of it.
How about over-the-counter medication? I'm sure you don't ever take any Advil's...
A license to buy alcohol and drugs. You want more government. Absurd.
"Hello Mommy Government, may I please have a beer?"
You're out of your mind.
Regardless of how you feel about drugs, there is absolutely NO constitutional authority for the FEDERAL government to enact drug prohibition -- zip, zero, nada.
You can't pick and choose when it's a good idea for the government to ignore the constitution, even it it's to do something you think is a good idea. Either you support the constitution, or you don't. Prohibitionists don't.

They just need to add an “Info and Entertainment” section to the website, so this stuff isn’t filed under “News” anymore.
It’s really just a categorical error.

I’m still waiting for somebody to explain to me how Josh Duggar can be accused of child molestation when HE WAS A CHILD HIMSELF. Isn’t that just called “teen sex” when a couple of 14 year olds do the dirty? If it’s child molestation, why are they handing out condoms in public schools? It makes no sense.
you can be underage and send a nude selfie and be charged with distributing child porn
It was molestation and not "teen sex" because it wasn't consensual. He molested them while they were sleeping.
Oh my sweet Jesus did you just say that a 14 year old kid sexually molesting his younger sisters while they slept is just called "teen sex?"
 May 22, 2015 at 10:59am
Can somebody explain this to me please? How can a child be accused of child molestation? If you are a young teenager (13 or 14) and you have sex with other young teenagers, how is that child molestation? I don’t understand. Isn’t that what all the condoms in school are for? Because this is supposedly normal?
Why is it “child molestation” when Josh Duggar does it, but it’s “normal” when all these other kids are having sex?
Good point! Reveals the hypocrisy of the lib-progs.
See "oldcowgirl" comments above... if that's true it may shed some light on your question... I was thinking it was classmates around his own age at first too, but now I'm hearing it was his younger sisters and it wasn't consensual and even involved molestation while the girls slept. Regardless, I think it is great he has repented and sought help... I hope and pray the girls involved aren't emotionally scarred for life...
Blest, I think one of the biggest distinguishers here is that some of the victims were his own sisters. How is having sex with, or fondling, your own sibling NOT molestation? They certainly don't hand out condoms in school so a young man can diddle his sister!!!
Had he been accused of having sex with a girl who was willing, that would be different than him fondling girls who were related to him or who were incapable through age or socialization of saying no. If you're wondering what that means, look up how the girls in the Gothard circle are socialized. Men are in charge, men can do no wrong, men know what's right, men have been given authority over women....and that can give little girls the idea that a male doing this kind of thing to her must be acting with God's approval. It's scary, especially considering this kind of socialization is still going on. I'm not knocking Christianity, or even fundamental Christianity...I'm just saying if you are in the kind of community where the highest calling of a woman is to be a wife and mother, and where women are not encouraged to think for themselves but instead to yield to men in most everything, then things like this are more likely to happen. I'd not be surprised if more young men in that circle have done the same thing and gotten away with it.

An individual who graduated high school in the year 1915 was able to read and write not only English, but Greek and Latin as well. These are the base languages for almost all European languages, which allowed people to travel all over Europe and be able to have a fundamental ability to figure out street signs and basic words in any language. For example, knowing Latin allowed people to visit Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal without needing a translator, since Italian, French, Spanish, and Portuguese all use Latin as a base for most of their words.
One hundred years later, in 2015, people who graduate high school cannot read and write in English, let alone any other language. They think phrases like “Cogito ergo sum” are spells from Harry Potter. And colleges are having to teach high school graduates basic writing skills.
You don't know what you are talking about.

Everybody knows what to do in a roundabout (what this article called a “traffic circle”).
The problem is that they have two HUGE design flaws.
1. People get disoriented because they are round, instead of square. If they are really big circles, or on top of a hill, you cannot really tell which “exit” you are supposed to take. People also get disoriented because not all roundabouts have 4 exits. Many have 3 or 5 exits, and the number of exits is almost never obvious to people until they are familiar with that particular roundabout. All large roundabouts need signs posted at the entrance that say something like this:
“First exit: Plum Street East
Second Exit: Main Street North”
2. They are NOT designed for multiple lanes. As you can see in the diagrams in this article, somebody approaching the roundabout from the south who intends to do a U-Turn would stay in the inner lane until he got back to where he started. But if somebody saw him in the middle lane, and was going straight west to east in the outer lane, the guy trying to leave the roundabout in the inner lane would have to cut off the person in the outer lane, or they would have a traffic accident.
If a street has more than 1 lane, it needs an intersection with stop signs. If it is only 1 lane, a roundabout is fine, so long as there are signs at each entrance that tell which exit leads to which street. It’s not that people don’t know how to use them. It’s that these multi-lane roundabouts are flawed by design.
I agree 100%. 1 lane roundabouts are more efficient that simple stop signs, but 2 lane roundabouts create more hassle and potential for trouble than they save.
All multi-lane intersections have lane use signs and markings to inform motorists who has the right of way. the same is true at a modern roundabout intersection.
At a modern roundabout, entering drivers are to yield to all lanes in the circular roadway. An inside driver cutting off an outside driver would not happen as your describe, since the driver approaching from the west would not enter until the U-turn driver had passed by.

My favorite part of this story is where it talks about the student, who is a child, telling the teacher, who is an adult, that he shouldn’t disrespect the flag like that. The adult then threw a temper tantrum, and stomped his feet on the flag, while the child calmly protested by refusing to look at the teacher.
Sounds like the teacher is an impudent child trapped in the body of a grown man. Perhaps that will be the next Civil Rights issue: transmaturism. It’ll be illegal to discriminate against people who don’t act their age. Grown liberals can throw as many temper tantrums as they want, take naps, and suck on their bottles, and nobody can discriminate against them for it.
Most liberal's brains stop developing in their early childhood.

I wonder if they’ll just do like they did with Obamacare. Add 20,000 pages of nonsense that nobody will read, and say “It’s been amended. If you like your metadata, you can keep your metadata.” And then they’ll spend the next 5 years claiming that your metadata wasn’t the right kind of metadata, and that only specific types of metadata are private. All the other kinds, like the kind you have been using, are open to NSA probing.

The worst part about all this is that they let the “professional squatters” move in out of the kindness of their hearts, and their kind act was abused. I honestly don’t care if people are squatters inside abandoned buildings, or if the landlord cheats them. But when people are kind and generous, and someone takes advantage of that, I think there’s a special place in HELL for that person.

Destroyer of Civilizations,
Congratulations on being able to quote one of the worst movies ever created. I mean, it takes some serious dedication to sit through an Adam Sandler movie by itself without vomiting or having your IQ drop to just a notch above brain dead. But to be able to stomach such filth and then MEMORIZE QUOTES from it? Wow. You’ve got some serious guts to do stuff like that.
 May 21, 2015 at 1:45pm
Exactly. If you glorify homosexuality as a “special” sin, all you do is play into the enemy’s hands. The whole gay movement has been about feeling special, and unique; outcasts and rebels who have been unjustly shunned by society. That’s how they justify a lot of what they think and believe.
Don’t play into that narrative. Take it seriously, but remember that Jesus was tempted with all sin while he walked the earth. That means that at some point, even Jesus felt the temptation of homosexuality. And while he was on the cross, he was punished for that sin in our place, so we wouldn’t have to suffer and die for it.
Well, all those fishing trips with the boys may or may not have been a temptation with him.
That's always the problem when there are no eye witnesses around at the time.
You people really are insane.
I know the Bible says He was, in all POINTS, tempted like us, yet He didn’t sin. Heb 4:14-16. The only instance in the Bible where you can find Jesus being tempted is Matt 4:1-11. He was tempted Physically (v. 3), Mentally (v. 6), and Spiritually (v. 8). Nowhere does it even BEGIN to suggest that Jesus was tempted to do EVERY debauched thing that can enter into the heart of man. Now it says He became sin FOR US (2 Corinthians 5:21). He took on our sinful nature – our separation from God (Matt 27:46 NKJV, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”). God turned his back on Jesus because He WAS sin at that point. Don’t confuse the temptation to commit bodily sins as a temptation to commit EVERY bodily sin. He would’ve been in that desert a lot longer than 40 days, if THAT were the case…

Yeah, my psychology professor in college was very adamant about this. She said it’s impossible to help anybody with an addiction if you treat the “fantasy” as though it is somehow detached from reality.
People who are capable of separating the two don’t usually find fantasy appealing at all. Very grounded and realistic people tend to avoid reading fiction in the fantasy, sci-fi, and romance genres. They tend to enjoy Christian/Inspirational genres, biographies, historical novels, murder mysteries, and things like that. Game of Thrones wouldn’t even appeal to somebody who firmly distinguishes between reality and fantasy: because reality is far superior to anything fantasy can invent.
People who distinguish between fantasy and reality are the kind of people who would rather PLAY football, than watch it on TV. They would never have a fantasy football team, because living and participating in real life is more important than spectating or dwelling on a fantasy.

I just wish I could tell the same thing to these anti-gun pastors in person. I’m much more convincing when I’m not a block of text on the internet.
 May 21, 2015 at 12:39pm
I don’t think they do. Christians and Jews say they worship “The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”. I’ve never met any Muslims who would agree with that statement.
And I’ve never met a Christian or Jew who would agree with the statement that Muhammad is a prophet of the God of the Bible, which is the central claim of Islam (that Muhammad is the prophet of Allah).
So, unless you have some sort of evidence that Allah and Jehovah are the same, I am going to stand by what I’ve been told by all 3 faiths: They are NOT the same.
 May 21, 2015 at 12:35pm
Why is this even a thing?
Nobody who believes in God thinks that the Allah of Islam is the same as Jehovah from the Bible. Nobody who believes in God believes that. Atheists might believe that. Buddhists might believe that. Hindus might believe that (but then again, they think everything is God). But I’ve never met any Muslim, Jew, or Christian who thought that Allah and Jehovah are the same.
Whoever came up with this nonsense idea that Allah is the God of the Bible is either a psychopath or a liberal. But I guess that’s redundant anyway.
Well, it's true, you've never "met" me, but I'm a Catholic and I believe that Allah is God. Now, do I think that terrorist, even those who claim to be acting in the name of God, are acting as God commanded, no, I don't. But this is equally true for me when looking at the KKK or the Nazis and Neo-Nazis. These terrorist groups can invoke God's name all they want, but their actions proclaim their ungodly motives for them. The same with Muslim extremists, they are terrorists perverting the name of God. It there is truly only one God, as I believe as a Catholic, then different expressions of devotion to God, even Hindu and Buddhist expressions, are still expressions of devotion to God, who is Love and the source of all Peace. By the way, Jehovah is an incorrect translation of the Sacred Tetragrammaton-YHVH. The original Hebrew had no vowels and vowels taken from another word honoring God. "Jehovah" uses these vowels but makes the V or Vav letter act as both a vowel and a consonant at the same time, which isn't possible in Hebrew. Calling God "Jehovah" is calling God by a "first name" and getting it wrong. The Catholics use Yaweh, which is a little closer but still technically wrong. I tend to do the Jewish thing and substitute "Adonay" or "Lord" instead of trying to use this faux-Hebrew construct. Lastly, when a Christian minister wants to say "God" in Arabic, there are Christian Arabs, by the way, they use the word "Allah", just like Muslims.
Riveting rosie you pimp too much for abortion to be a Catholic.
You took Blest's comment from the wrong context. Blest was not arguing semantics. It's not a matter of translation.
Blest was clearly stating that the Hebrew God, or the God of the Bible, is not the same as the god of the Koran. Or to put it another way, that the God of Isaac is not the same as the god of Ishmael.
Are you saying that you believe that the God in the Bible is the same as the god in the Koran? If so, you are one confused Catholic.
Buddhist do not believe in god or God. They do not believe in destiny. They also do not believe in chance. The last is pretty interesting since not believing in chance would make them really bad evolutionist. Worst yet, if there was no chance, but a series of causes and conditions, then such an idea might lead to someone or something as a first cause of those causes and conditions who was outside of creation... like God. I guess once you get "enlightened," all of this becomes clearer.
@Desert...what are you babbling about??...i for one welcome all your comments...it just brings to light the lunacy and delusions of liberalism....you think your smarter than everybody...in reality..your manifestos just prove you are insane...but you have found your own personal utopia
Rosie, I don't believe your interpretation is a "Catholic" thing. That's just me. Abortion is also not a "Catholic" thing.
I thought Muslims were the children of Abrahams slave Hannah.
I hate to disagree, but numerous Popes have declared that ALL notions of god are the same as the GOD. I completely disagree with the Pope on this AND THOUSANDS of other issues, but this is part of the ecumenical efforts coming out of the church of Rome in its efforts to melt ALL religions into one with the Pope on top.
You are thinking of the offspring of Ishmael. He is the son of Hagar, who was Sarah's handmaiden. And that, of course, was a huge mistake by both Abraham and Sarah.
Andrew Kirell is nothing more than a rabid, Liberal lump of feces with a hard-on for anyone at FOX News.
The Left have to do everything they can to try to deligitimze FOX NEWS for Killary Clinton and the other Liberal Scum, because FOX NEWS isn't going to let Killary walk in and become Queen of America as she assumes will happen. She has already promised her base of Illegals, Rioters, Looters and Anarchists that SHE will use "Executive Actions" far more than the Traitor Obama has so far. What does THAT tell you? Yeah, buckle up, it's going to be a rough ride. Especially after The White Backlash starts...
Desertose should preface her comments regarding being Catholic with that she does not believe everything the Catholic Church teaches. Catholics call that cafeteria Catholicism as they pick and choose what they want to believe regardless of what Jesus through His Church teaches.
So wait, if the Christian God and Allah are "not the same God" as most here say, then does that not mean there are two Gods? Or is this just a way to say "My God is real, and that other God is make believe"?
The Jewish God does not have a son called Jesus, so doesn't that make the Jewish God different than the Christian God? I mean the same God can't both have a son named Jesus and not have a son named Jesus.
What about the God that the Westboro Baptist church worships? Do they worship the same God as you or a different God?
If the take away is that my God is the one and true God and everybody else's God is make believe, then you are in good company. That's what almost everybody has believed since time began. Lot's of blood has been shed over that one.
You are right and it is real easy to tell the difference: how do they deal with Jews. YHVH – Yahuah – The Almighty God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob said that His Covenant was forever – he said the Jews are the “apple of His eye” – His Son is called “The Lion of the Tribe of Judah” Allah on the other hand (another name for satan as he flies under many false colors) says that trees and rocks will cry out “There is a Jew behind me, come O Servant of Allah and kill him” – Yah never said to kill his “chosen people” how could anyone with two brain cells to rub together think that YHVH and Allah are the same? Not to mention the fact Allah says he has no sons – Yet YHVH’s Son Yahusha is the savior of the world – There is no common ground here: Chrislam is the work of satan – – Shame on Carlson for backing down. Truth is so obvious.
Re: But I’ve never met any Muslim, Jew, or Christian who thought that Allah and Jehovah are the same. The you have led a sheltered life. Atheists do not believe there is a god; consequently...
Muslims believe that God chose Ishmael as the chosen son of Abraham. Jews & Christians believe that God chose Isaac as the chosen son of Abraham. Those religions believe in the God of Abraham; hence, there is one God and he is great.
DesertRose1960, a true Christian knows Allah isn't God. You already proved by your post you are nothing but a fake.
The error of believing that God Almighty is the god of allah can be easily understood when you realize that those who believe this nonsenses have never ever read through the entire Bible believing what they read... Jeremiah 17:9King James Version (KJV)
