    “Can someone explain how an individual who’s function and assignments have been media and public relations earn or reach a rank of Brig. General?”
    1. You can look up her official bio or that of any AF general with a simple Google search.
    2. Who do you appoint to *the* executive PA job in the AF? An F-15 pilot or any other career officer with a stellar record and “real job” backgrounds who will resent the assignment because it will spell the end of their career (“Oh you got hired to be a spokesperson instead of doing AF operations? Thanks for playing but you can retire now.”) Or do you hire someone who has spent their AF career interacting with operators and messaging their accomplishments to the public and for them this job is actually considered an advancement and will appreciate the position instead of seeing it as a dead end?
    3. Do you not think that extremely large organizations have need for executive public relations/public affairs personnel and that the best people to do the job are those who have tens of years or even decades of experience doing it?

    While I do want local governments to fight this BS, it does take resources. When you have to pull $100,000 from the local school or fire department to fight BS lawsuits, people (right or wrong) begin asking, is it really worth it. Given just how many people’s faith is nothing more than “well my parents were Lutheran, Catholic, LDS, etc., so I’m Lutheran, Catholic, LDS, etc.” you really expect them to be zealous over defending their faith?

    Last I checked, ANC is funded by taxpayer dollars just as a public park is. Your idiocy knows no bounds.

    I find it funny how you work so hard for down votes. I know there are some here that down vote simply for disagreeing about an opposing idea but you honestly seem to work to get as many down votes as you do. You don’t simply make a point that is in opposition to the majority of readers and posters here but you go out of your way to be stupid.

    Like here you conflate secularism with atheism.

    Secular – denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis.

    Atheism – disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods.

    Notice how one could belong to a secular organization but be personally motivated by religion or faith?

    How about you take some time off from posting here and try and learn some basic logic and argumentation so we’re not subjected to your public displays of idiocy.

    “‘Terrorist threats’? So I guess my landlord, cable company phone company, and ex-wife are all terrorists too? They would all threaten to sue me, bankrupt me, if I don’t comply with their demands?”

    You contracted with them. Big diff.

    If you’re fighting corruption, I have no problem with some premeditated, non-violent lawlessness.

    The problem is these folks have shown themselves to be violent and they have shown that they don’t care if the answer turns out to be, “There was no corruption.” These are agitators plain and simple and heir premeditated lawlessness needs to be met with unflinching intolerance of their behavior.

    The counter question is when do believers lose their right to live as a community and have laws, policies, and regulations that reflect their beliefs such as blue laws and restrictions on porn? This country was not founded on the premise that religion would be struck from the town square or that every community would be secularist. Far from it.

    I think caps are a good tool but when you’re using it for as many words as not, it makes the caps pretty meaningless.

    If you are a Christian and have not listened to this man speak, I cannot recommend him enough. Lots of stuff on YouTube. Also recommend Francis Chan also on YouTube.

    “It pains me to see slime like the cleric featured here ruin a perfectly good country.” I nonconcur. It’s far from a perfectly good country. These people have instituted local “civil rights” organizations that have silenced the people in their communities against saying anything non-pc while giving free reign to Muslim extremists doing and saying whatever they want. They are now sowing what they reaped.

    I will join in your empathy once they show that they are willing to stand up to this scourge.

    In her victory speech, Joni Ernst just mentioned how, among other problems, the ISIS problem won’t simply fix itself. Paul might be onto something.

    “That’s why obMa took 57% of the catholic vote in 08′. We r not exactly fans of killing.” That’s why Catholics went for an extremely pro-abortion President? A lot more children die to abortions than people are killed in the wars we engage in of late. You might want to rethink your stance on “killing.”

    Side note: Pew shows only 54% Obama and 45% McCain. (50/48 in 2012)

    “Australia has seen a deluge of muslim immigrants flow into there over the last decade. ”

    They haven’t merely “seen” a deluge of Muslim immigrants as if the immigration happened by chance. The Muslim immigration was a result of government policy just as it was in Europe and as it is in the US.

    It is by design. Now ask yourself why, of all the people on the planet, our governments decided it was necessary to import Muslims. And by the way, it wasn’t just the “left” that designed this/allowed this to happen. The political right was equally involved.

    Because, just as with other sects, the church is caught up in politics and not God’s Word.

    “He said to them, “But now, let him who has a purse take it, and likewise a bag. And let him who has no sword sell his mantle and buy one.”

    Some Episcopalian sects ordain and marry gays. Just Google search “episcopal church liberal”.

    “But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

    What good works does the Bible equip you for? “EVERY good work.”

    Who provides you the learning of salvation? “the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation” Not the priests. Not tradition. Not “the Church.” The writings.

    Did Jesus quote Scripture? It’s plain to see that He showed us by his behavior that there is value in quoting Scripture yet Catholics constantly show contempt for those that do. http://www.jewsforjesus.org/publications/newsletter/september-2008/05

    Sola scriptura? That’s what you call it and for the sake of your simple minds, that’s what we refer to in your presence. Following Scripture, leads to other solas (solae). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_solae

    The problem is, “But I, brethren, could not address you as spiritual men, but as men of the flesh, as babes in Christ. I fed you with milk, not solid food; for you were not ready for it; and even yet you are not ready, for you are still of the flesh.”

    “drank the anti-Catholic Koolaid and decided to just bash the Catholic faith”

    Boy are you Catholics overly melodramatic. Somehow criticism of theology is bashing and bigotry. I don’t recall Jesus calling disciples who were whiners with a persecution complex. Anyone else?

    That whole thing is immediately preceded by “Receive the Holy Spirit.” Receiving the Holy Spirit is not limited to “priests” as defined by Catholicism. We are all called to be priests and receive the Holy Spirit which would mean we all have the ability to forgive or retain sin. What’s funny is that Catholics believe a pedophile priest can receive the Holy Spirit but the rest of must rely on those same priests to benefit from the Holy Spirit though His Word tells us this isn’t true and that God gives the Holy Spirit to those He chooses (not “the Church” chooses).

    That’s just step one of the narrow path. Talk about anything but an easy life.

    If I wanted easy I’d just repeat my sins over and over again and say a few Hail Marys to start fresh each week.

    “I will not get into a scripture contest ”

    None of you Catholics will because all you can do is regurgitate what the Catholic Church tells you to think about Scripture. There is nothing you’ve learned with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and thus you have no clue on how to apply it. You grasp to find some verses your church says applies to certain thoughts.

    “The unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. “For who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”

    Spend a little more time learning Scripture instead of listening to an institution and you could learn a thing or two. You find the gifts to be folly to any but priests, bishops, cardinals, etc. so you have no clue what they are and what they do for the real priests of His Church, those who know it’s the duty of each Christian to be a “priest” for Jesus’s Church in some fashion or another and that the Holy Spirit gifts them to serve.

    “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in every one. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.”
