Always be wary of the “mega” anything. Just like in the 80′s and 90′s with the Bakers we should question the motivations of any leader.
I feel bad for the congregation who have tried to find the truth. Hopefully this is the extent of the corruption, but if a man is willing to break the covenant of marriage it hard to trust much else he has to say on the will of God.

These stories are interesting, like finding out if da Vinci’s flying machine would work, but true Christians all know that the story of Noah was a parable signifying the judgement and fall of the Ancient Church.
It didn’t really happen, which is good because who wants to glorify a drunkard who sleeps with his daughters.
What are you talking about?
Can you prove what you propose?
That wasn't Noah but Lot.
Dear Butter66, True Christians believe and trust God's Word, the Bible. Would you be so kind to show us that specific verse where you read Noah slept with his daughters, please.
When you say that the bible is an allegory you are living very dangerously in calling God a liar. Besides that, you must be one of these people who sit in church and listen to a lying pastor and never pick up the bible to read for yourself, or, you cannot understand the bible without the spirit in the first place. The coming months and next year will be so devastating that you will wish that you had never believed the rubbish that you believe. On judgment day if you will never come to repentance, you will remember the foolish things you CHOSE to believe.
Yeah. A real drunkard. So why does Ezekiel 14:14 call him righteous? No mention of Noah sleeping with his daughters in my Bible. What version are you using?
I'm not really stepping out on a limb by asserting that you don't know anything at all about what you're talking about. Any "true Christian" who believed what you say they believe would essentially have to believe Jesus to be a liar.
You should probably refrain from commenting about anything biblical until you actually bother to read the bible. You kinda look like a complete idiot for saying the Bible glorifies Noah for sleeping with his daughters, when Noah didn't have any daughters which were recorded. I believe the story you are referring to is Lot.

Heb 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
1Pe 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
2Pe 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
The N.T. references the flood as an historical event. That’s good enough for me.

If you cared about California’s people you would support a referendum to allow it to secede from the oppressive United States and allow it to return to its rightful home: Mexico.
Anything else is just suppression and subjugation.

Really? I don’t remember Jesus having sex with his daughters.
Noah was a scumbag, glorying him is just wrong.
But maybe that is why Hollywood is making this movie. They love pedophiles. Woody Allen should have directed this movie.

As well they should be.
I sense you are trying to devalue this form of life, but if it is a true consciousness, how you can judge one of God’s creations so harshly?
Do you value babies that were born from artificial insemination to be lesser creatures? They would never have existed without advanced technology.
All life deserves to be protected, regardless of how it came to be.

Copyright is not a patent. A copyright, as long as it is properly maintained, can last forever these days. Used to be things would enter the public domain, but that doesn’t really happen anymore. You can thank Disney for that.

@JediKnight – I think technology could be a great help – if you use it challenge the smartest kids. Make things tougher for them. Push them faster. Don’t let them be held back by the least common denominator, or there not so smart teacher who is proud of not being good at math.
Learning simulation programs allow for this self study in a great way, much like when adults take training classes.
This country need overachievers, especially in math and science. Not stunting their growth through school would be a good start.

You cannot blame just unions, as those 30 countries ahead of us are all unionized. You have to look specifically at the union here, the NEA, as see how it differs from those other countries.
I thing two of the worst problems are the blanket equalization of all teachers. Treating good teachers just like bad teachers totally discourages the good teachers either making them not care or having them leave the profession from discouragement.
The second problem is the recruiting of teachers. Our schools are not there on the front lines with private businesses competing for candidates in math or science, or even English. Point 1 also will have good candidates shy away from ever entering the profession.
Take a look at how these other countries do their recruiting and you will see the opposite of what I mention above.
Why? We all have opinions as to the reason, but mine is the NEA cares more about power than students.

The moral issue of our time is abortion, and I suspect this guy is on the side of the baby killers.
A "mother" owns her fetus and can decide if it should live or die. The government supports this immoral view for economic, social and political reasons. Abortion does should a little like modern-day slavery.

Before the freak out continues, let’s do some math:
Population of the US = 311 Million.
Population of the UK = 62.
If we equate the UK numbers to a population the size of the US, they would have around 75,000 requests.
And your point is.... ? You seem to imply that it is ok because percentage wise, we are not as bad. Let me remind you that this is the United States of America. Land of the FREE. We separated from England for liberty from an oppressive king.
People literally risk their lives to come here for freedom of speech, and religion, and civil rights.
We are the great experiment in liberty. It is like comparing BUTTER with margarine!... They look alike on the surface, but the ingredients make all the difference. The U.S. of A is the real thing.

I remember in 3rd grade drawing pictures of tanks and airplanes to celebrate American History and our victories in WWI and WWII. That was in the 1980s.
I might be suspended for doing that today.
Amazing how quickly we have fallen.

Come on folks, there is no excuse for rape. Our soldiers are too good and patriotic to allow some dismal of criminal behavior. I don’t know all the stats involved here, but I refuse to believe our military cannot be gender integrated without epidemic abuse.
We have warriors and we dump in a bunch of women and political correctness.
Let's go back to the old days. Unleash our men on the enemy, let them kill the men and then take the women and repopulate the land with our values. I am tired of our wimpy way of fighting WAR!

None of this should surprise anyone. As someone who attended a private religious school who had parents as teachers and an uncle as a principal, everyone in the leadership was always very worried about protecting our tax excempt status.
I heard stories similar to this one from my grandfather that the IRS tried to do back in the 30s. It is nice to see that we were not alone.
Give an org the job of collecting the most amount of money as possible with the least amount of over-site, and what did you expect to happen?

Good to see Maher back to being an idiot. I was getting worried the last couple of weeks when he made intelligent and coherent remarks. Looks like it was just a stopped clock after all.

Not sure I could watch it after Biden’s last debate versus Paul Ryan.
The latest Batman movies didn’t have Christian Bale taking to the Joker for too long at a time because listening to the Joker laugh like a madmen gets stale pretty fast.
May 4, 2013 at 12:44am
Right on jcldwl – If we are going to criticize Biden for almost the exact same comment about Obama, we have to do the same here.
We need to be better than the progs. It is usually easy because we almost always are, but we can’t use their PC stereotypes, even in a seemingly positive way.

@American Solider – Check their site now. Looks like the blaze audience crashed their site due to the volume of hits.
That is pretty impressive in this day and age.

I will agree schools have basically parental power over kids in school, but the ability to arrest him seems well out of bounds of the traditional relationship.

How many kids were arrested for wearing a Che Guevara shirt? Zero? Yeah…
