@Verycobaltviolet Just a FYI, ISIS might actually have nukes (chemical weapons, etc) or be close to getting them, and all they would have to do is walk them across the southern border and plant them in a major city. Care to re-think your original statement yet?

I call BS. She kept the money. Guaranteed. Typical liberal, lie and the mindless drones will believe you without question…

You know what MEC, I don’t know what I would do if I had to share my country with a group like Hezbollah. And I know you can’t just boot them out. That must really suck. My point is that you can’t just throw all the blame on Israel. The likes of people in groups like Hezbollah are the same people who are the ones killing Christians. It just seems that you can’t reason with people like that! Christian are being killed because they face a choice: convert or die. What an unreasonable choice from unreasonable people. Imagine if Hamas decided it was time to stop fighting Israel. All that money being used right now to buy weapons on both sides could be used to rebuilding a nation of Palestine. Jews and Palestinians could live side by side in peace…but wait! We are dealing with Hamas and we know that will never happen. Convert or die! Push Israel into the sea! Unreasonable positions from people cut from the same cloth. If Israel didn’t exist, there is no doubt in my mind that Jews would be being slaughtered along side Christians (Jews who aren’t in the state of Israel are in fact being slaughtered). Lebanon used to be a majority Christian country (84% in 1926), what happened?
September 11, 2014 at 5:25pm
Before Hezbollah, you harboured the PLO! What is the difference between Hezbollah attacking Israel or the PLO attacking? If you poke a hornets nest you are going to get stung. And, honestly, all you are doing is making excuses for being anti-semetic. Stop attacking Israel. Stop harbouring terrorists who attack Israel. Let go of the irrational hate that you have for Israel. Then maybe there can be peace with Israel. Otherwise, this will never end. And sorry, but it will be Lebanon that loses this fight…true story.
September 11, 2014 at 5:18pm
So MiddleEasternChristian, if Hezbollah didn’t operate out of Lebanon, do you think Israel would be occupying portions of Lebanon? I am a Catholic from Canada, so I am not all rah rah Israel. However, this nonsense has to stop. I also know that Christians in Lebanon don’t fire the rockets, but Hezbollah does. Your fight should be against Hezbollah. Boot them out and maybe Israel doesn’t have any justification for occupying parts of Lebanon. This is on you! If Hezbollah did not operate in Lebanon, Israel would not have to occupy it.
 September 11, 2014 at 5:11am
I don’t agree with everything the government of Israel does. However, I do think that if you fire rockets into their territory, then you better expect a military response back. If you want to get along with Israel, then stop attacking them!
Brian you're talking about Palestinians, we're not there so we don't know which side started the attack. Let's talk about Israel's other neighbor, Lebanon, the only Middle Eastern country that has a Christian President. The country which has the most Christians population (about the half of the population is of christian religion)
And yet what did Israel do to this country since 1948 and until now. Read the history.
And yet there are some people here accuse us of hating Israel, and label us as not being Christians. Don't we have the freedom to pick who we love or hate ?
BTW I can't understand how such a senator uses a tragedy the Middle Eastern Christians are living in, to use it for his own benefit in his Presidential election campaign!
Lebanon attacked Israel in 1948. That's what history records. The PLO, attacking from Lebanon, started the next conflict after which Syria practically occupied the country. Today, the president barely even rules whole Syrian backed hezbollah controls half the country and has actively proofed war with israel.
I hope the so called Palestinians and their supporters get the 72 virgins. THEY DESERVE THEM.

The Jews are Christians’ elder brothers. Jesus was a Jew.
Live beside Israel?
I think it would be just fine if people didn’t fire missiles into their territory every second minute.
If you guys stopped attacking Israel, then they would stop needing to defend themselves!
It is really that simple. You leave Israel alone and they will leave you alone…
Jesus was a Jew, same for Virgin Marry and Joseph, and was crucified by the Jews. Yet Jesus did forgive them, so we don't have any hate for the Jews. Maybe you didn't read my post.. We have Jews at Lebanon, and they have the right as the other citizens.
Brian the simplicity is when Israel returns what it has occupied from Lebanon. I ask you again, when did the Christians attack Israel ? Can you give me some facts so we can be enlightened ?
But Israel attacked and killed Christian leaders. When Christians trusted Israel Christians were back stabbed.
..and that it would be just fine if people didn't fire missiles into their territor every second and minute.
It seems you're mistaken. The last time there was a war it was at 2006, between a Lebanese Party and Israel, the reason of the war was freeing the Lebanese territories which is occupied by Israel, and they are still occupied till now.
I bet the U.S won't sit doing nothing if Mexico occupies San Diego (for example)
So it would be just fine when Israel release the occupied territories, wouldn't that be good ? wouldn't that war, and the tensions end? Though the Christians didn't have any involvement in any of the attacks that were made.
.This Mid Est Chr guy is too CONSUMED BY HATE to even make a comprehensible statement here. All we can do is pray for him so the Holy Spirit can lift the hatred from his heart and open the gate for the love to flow in and out
So MiddleEasternChristian, if Hezbollah didn't operate out of Lebanon, do you think Israel would be occupying portions of Lebanon? I am a Catholic from Canada, so I am not all rah rah Israel. However, this nonsense has to stop. I also know that Christians in Lebanon don't fire the rockets, but Hezbollah does. Your fight should be against Hezbollah. Boot them out and maybe Israel doesn't have any justification for occupying parts of Lebanon. This is on you! If Hezbollah did not operate in Lebanon, Israel would not have to occupy it.
Do you think Hozballa fired on Israel before occupying Lebanon ? And how do you think we can boot them out, after all they represent a big portion of the citizens. We can convince them to give their arms to the local army, but how can you convince them when Israel still occupies Lebanese territories ?
BTW I am Catholic as well, but I live in Lebanon. I can tell you what's happening here, most of what your media shows is not true.
Back to our subject, it is a conference about helping Christians at the Middle East, what does Israel has to do with that. Why does it always has to be involved ? It's not Israel who hosted the conference
now just because I stated that "I hate Israel for what it has done" all the guys here are doubting my Christianity. Man I am not here to talk about my Sins or make a confession, neither Im saying that I'm a true Christian, hope one day I can be!! I am just saying the people at the middle east including the Christians are free "to like or not to like" -maybe this makes u relaxed- whoever they want, without putting your own terms on them.
BTW im out of here, you made you points clear, and i lost hope today of what i read from you guys

So it’s not good enough for a woman to have the “right” to kill their own child…stomping on that child’s right to live (50 percent of those children are girls). Now there needs to be a “right” for a woman to force her employer to pay for her abortifacients thereby stomping all over her employer’s right to religious freedom.

louise, these bad priests AND the bishops, archbishops, cardinals, etc who protected them will have to answer before God. Their actions were mortal sins as well. There are a lot of priests, bishops, etc. in hell…their title does not guarantee salvation.
 June 22, 2014 at 10:28am
Obviously, this Pope was around for that and should be drawn and quartered, just sayin’
 June 22, 2014 at 10:26am
Wow. Can you provide examples of those things?
 June 22, 2014 at 10:24am
Of course, torture is a mortal sin. Does anyone here really believe that torturing another human being is what God wants us to do? “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you”
I am amazed that people would even disagree with this! Another thing, what do bad priests have to do with anything the Pope says? If what the Pope says is correct, why bring up bad priests who commit crimes? Pope Francis had nothing to do with these priests! Keep in mind Jesus picked Judas as an Apostle, and that didn’t work out very well. Should we ignore what Jesus taught because of Judas?
I am also not saying EVERYTHING the Pope say is correct, but bringing up bad priests as an attempt to discredit a statement by the Pope is just stupid.
What is problematic is that torture is both a general and a specific term.
As in, "Having a math test the day we get back from spring break is torture," and "The tortured him by pulling out his thumb nails with a pair of pliers."
No one I want to do business with or have represent me can be for the specific, very real torture, but what is the specific definition? Anything unpleasant that you would much rather avoid can be defined as torture to endure, which includes any kind of interrogation, "enhanced" or not.
So what is that specific definition that should be used when we say it's the illegal kind?
Murder is a mortal sin, too. Torture, in the course of trying to survive in war, is justifiable. In war, the other side is trying to kill you. You are allowed to kill to survive. Torture is used to gather information about the other side, so you can keep your own side alive.
Good must TRIUMPH over evil!
Evil MUST be DEFEATED at every turn! God doesn't want evil to win.

I agree with them. The mainstream media is scum. I stopped watching that crap long ago. Too bad the MSM never goes out of its way (like they seem to do for the anarchists) to interview a pro-life marcher. In fact, they do their best to avoid reporting on that type of march. 2000 person anti-gun rally? Front-page! Half-million pro-life march? Never happened. Yep, I do agree, “You guys are scum.”
May 3, 2014 at 4:35am
I left a comment on that rags’ website and they didn’t allow me to post. Too many negatives comments I guess.
Maybe the “scientists” pushing global warming should take his advice…
November 16, 2013 at 11:54am
What is the difference Bill? Well for one…it would mean Obama knowingly lied.
October 29, 2013 at 2:49am
Apollyon, you keep name calling instead of address any issue that is brought up.
Is this because you are refusing to critically think?
First state what these so-called “dishonest, lying comments” are?
What “false claims about what (your) position” have I made?
And if you “don’t have faith in science” then where is your “MOUNTAINS of evidence to support” evolution?
Where is ANY OBSERVABLE EVIDENCE to support this THEORY that you believe?
Finally, if there is no God, please explain how any action you take or decision you make IS NOT how I described above?
October 28, 2013 at 3:39am
Apollyon, funny….I believe I quoted you word for word and responded to it. Claiming that you did not say it? People only have to read your original post to see who is being dishonest here.
As for sorting fact and fiction…where is your evidence?
You accept more things on faith to believe the THEORY of evolution, than I do in knowing God is there.
And this statement: “The average American 10 year old understand more about how the world works than the wisest man in their age.”
Really? Ask a 10-year-old how the Egyptian pyramids were built.
Those idiot Egyptians seem to muddle through that somehow.
And what is a “rich, happy, meaningful, full” life to an atheist?
In a Godless world, there is no soul because the soul is a supernatural thing.
Therefore, no God equals no soul, no free will, no purpose. Your decisions are nothing but electrical impulses. Your entire life was pre-determined the moment the “big bang” occurred.
And you are going to die. So even if you were the most successful and famous atheist that ever lived, you will be a pile of dirt in 100 years. That is the final destination of your “meaningful” life.
So if I’m wrong and your are right. We both end up as piles of dirt. I’m very happy believing in my Creator. In fact, He makes my life more rich, more happy, and more meaningful. If you have a problem with that, oh well…
However, if I’m right and your wrong. Well, you will have a bit of explaining to do.
