I believe Eve Tushnet has made a sound biblical choice. With her comment, “[Celibacy] allows you to give yourself more freely to God,” she is showing wisdom that, in living it out, will bring her God’s grace to be the person she and God desire her to become. May she be richly blessed of the Lord.
I’m liking the way you dream, Boompa2…AND I just happen to live in the right cesspool (Bay Area) to vote for Mike. Bring it on.

Hi Gonzo. I am not yet very familiar with the book/movie “Unbroken” so I’m commenting off the information you posted above. What came to mind was the verse in 2 Timothy 3:4-5 “People will be lovers of themselves…4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God- 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.” It’s too bad if Louie left out the fact that in truth, Jesus is the God that made him whole, just to please people. In my experience, they won’t be pleased anyway and he will have lost the “power” of the testimony. Scoffers will scoff regardless of what he does.
No disrespect intended toward Louie, he’s definitely a hero and I’m grateful he lived and is telling his story.

Why oh why do organizations step up and shoot themselves in the foot with such avoidable screw ups? For crying out loud, if their message is true, couldn’t they have used pictures of actual people who support their cause?

Isn’t DC a gun-free zone? Someone should have told Mr. Johnson that; and to be very careful using a gun because it can be taken away from you and turned on you. A teachable moment, prez.
It is a gun free zone in Wash. DC. No way this could have happened.
The justice brothers will have to show up, and persecute the victim. And start more looting and burning.

I call War on Women on Bro Grande. He might as well have patted her head and slapped her rear end. Thanks, Michelle Bachmann, for your faithful service and willingness to fight the good fight.

I love to hear Johnathan Gentry speak out. Dude is soooo plain spoken. No ambiguity there. Thank you and Keep the Faith, Johnathan. (pfft, like he needed to hear that from me)

Hello again, Woodles. In thinking back I wrote the MS diagnosis was confirmed and that may be an overstatement. This happened over twenty years ago and “the tongue has a natural tendency to exaggerate.” Didn’t want to be misleading in the telling. God bless you.

Hi Woodles. You didn’t comment about my story about the ring. I’d sincerely like your opinion of that one and I’ll share another story.
A friend has a psychotherapy practice. The friend called me one day to ask what had been said to me when I was suicidal that was helpful. I said “not much.” We are both Christians and I agreed to pray for the client who was very distraught over a confirmed diagnosis of MS and wanted to die rather than live with the disease because of watching a sister die of cancer. I prayed while their meeting was happening. I am not a person who visualizes well but this one time I saw them in silhouette sitting in the office. I saw a figure who “looked” like Jesus kneeling before the client and reaching into the client’s chest. Many days later I spoke with the therapist and was informed there was no longer any sign of the disease. I was personally stunned by that because at the time I didn’t have much faith in prayer because of years of “unanswered” prayers of my own. I give God all the praise for that answer because I know so well the feelings of defeat and desperation the client was feeling.

Just a thumbs up was not enough for your comment, digitalguy. A Big AMEN is in order. Thanks for speaking truth.

More fun at Hypocracy House.

Thank you, Lord, for this Marine’s returned freedom. May your Spirit comfort and heal him and his loved ones. To God be the glory.

“There are anonymous sources in all of your stories every single day,” she said. “If we spent all of our time focused on that effort, we wouldn’t be working on diplomacy.” We’re too busy being diplomatic to find out who called one of our country’s best allies a bad name publically. Now that’s funny…and a little chicken s%#+ too.
Hey, Daphne....I mean Jenny.... focusing on that WOULD be diplomacy!

I absolutely believe miracles happen today. The picture in my avatar was a gift from God; miracle I believe. It was early one morning in Yosemite Valley. There had been a light Spring snow and it was very foggy. I couldn’t really see any sunshine and I snapped a 35mm picture of the trees and fog. When the picture was developed, many other people and I clearly see a cross in the light. It is especially personal to me since I have had many desperately dark times in my life and Christ and his cross (the Light) saved me from that horror.
Another miracle happened when I lost a ring I had recently received as a gift. I was so distraught and prayed often for at least two weeks, I don’t recall exactly the timeframe. One Sunday evening when I returned from church a friend was parked where I normally would so I pulled up behind his car. The next morning when I went out to take my children to school I stepped off the curb and three feet or so into the street I found my ring. It apparently laid there for that whole time and no one found it and it wasn’t damaged. Just as I returned home the street sweeper came around the corner and went by my house. Had I not found the ring at that time, it would have been gone forever.
I have several other stories but am running out of space, so I will just end with YES God does send us miracles and miraculous events and I am deeply thankful for them because they a personal reminders that he is watching over us and cares about our lives. God bless.
i don't consider it a miracle if you see something in the shape of a cross once in your life.
that's one line with another line going through it.
why did god seem to do a bunch of stuff and do a lot of 'miracles' along with jesus, in the times of the bible, yet they never happen any more. maybe that's because miracles don't happen.
you know that sad family with a child stricken with cancer? they prayed for 2 years, along with their congregations. then the child died after a horrific battle with cancer.
where was god then? "oh, that's just him moving in his mysterious ways."

Zappa, Please enlighten us with your knowledge of the Viking culture. I have to admit most of my understanding of their culture comes from The Vikings TV series. From that portral, I found their culture to be disgusting…rape, pillaging, deception, betrayal, brutal killing and destruction of other’s lives in order to acquire and retain wealth. I would seriously like to know your position on the Viking culture.

Ouch! Shamed again about MY potty mouth. So sorry world.

I’ve taken many pictures in which I see faces and other images. I would call it seeing the hand/handiwork of God. He is amazing beyond anything we can know at this point, but one day….

Ster2, thanks for your post. My experience has been that all of the gay folks I have been close enough to know their “story” were molested as children. Heartbreaking.

Arrrgggghh, every time he opens his mouth I want to scream. He might as well just say I don’t give a rip about a plane being shot down…until it becomes something I can use. Now, back to MY agenda…how’s it goin’ Dave, thanks for the donation.

So sad. Looking at the pastor’s smile makes my heart laugh with joy. What a loss for his family and all of us. He’s is the presence of The Lord now; absent from the body present with The Lord scripture tells us. Now, looking at the two young men’s faces, their eyes are dead. So sad. May the Spirit comfort those left behind.
