    If it’s not a sitcom dealing with the wacky Nikola Tesla and his more serious neighbor Thomas Edison then I’m not watching.

    Lol, I noticed that too. I like the guy’s message myself but I just think he is a little loose on his belief system. Regardless, his message is 100% correct and I wish more people would actually read the article before they post.

    I can see how a person of faith can justify many of the things he says he stands for. However, I still don’t understand how person of faith can be pro choice. Even LGBT people can be justified as victims of an uncontrollable urge but there is no way ANY person of faith can justify the murder of an unborn child. I guess there could be the angle of mercy for a deformed unborn child but supporting “reproductive rights” encompasses the right to abort in general.

    A man with an ID can still have a weapon. You are denying the poor minorities from attending when you know good and well proper security and detection will solve the problem.

    I was speaking about the Atheists trolling places to cause trouble, sue, etc. I really don’t know if your are lying or not but if you DID graduate there (thus grew up there atleast for a few years) then you were the extreme minority. Sure, there are those that are not religious in Lebanon but there are not many of them (which is why I said “most” and not “all”). Just because the town of 15,000 people didn’t attend the ceremony does not make them non-Christians. People just don’t tend these ceremonies for the fun of it. Bottom line is that town is Christian centric and even though atheists live there they will not change once thing about the way these ceremonies are run because they are ridiculously outnumbered and the town in general has reputation of keeping God in their lives both public and private. Even those that are Atheists or non-religious don’t mind living there because everyone is treated with respect regardless of their background. Talking about God has been in their graduation ceremonies for who knows how long (probably the entire history of the town) and nobody cared to complain because it really didn’t matter because even those that were not Chirsitans knew that they were not being hurt and respected the town they grew up in.

    Most of my family is from Lebanon, MO and although I don’t live there I visit there often. For those who don’t know it’s around a 1.5 hours north of Branson, MO and is a VERY Christian centric town (always has been). Bottom line is that Lebanon just doesn’t care what this guy thinks and they will do what they want. It’s a town of around 15,000 people but it seems that everybody knows everybody else and almost the entire town is on the same page when it comes to religion. The town can get threatened, sued, arrested, etc. but they will ALWAYS do this at their graduation ceremonies. Atheists might as well troll somewhere else.

    She is tolerant. She does not want to take away his rights but just thinks it should not be front page news coverage. Would it be intolerant if she didn’t want to see a couple have sex onTV? How about not wanting to see violence?

    @Katzkiner

    I agree that the fact that the Jewish people having an actual country will help defend from genocide. However, it’s amazingly scary how many people hate Jews just because of their heritage. Yes, a “final solution” should be frowned upon by almost everybody that has even an ounce of a soul but the sad fact is that there are way too many people that have a deep hatred for these people.

    The Neo-Nazis are polling at 8% which is a LOT for a party that pretty much agree that incinerating people in ovens just because of their heritage is a good thing. This WILL spread like a cancer again if it’s not met head on. 8% can easily turn into 18%, 28%, 38%, etc. before we know it.

    A lot has changed in the last 5 years alone and it’s not been for the better. If it were not for our extremely strong church presence I think we would already be past cities like St. Louis, Columbia, and KC in terms of corruption and moral bankruptcy.

    We had an interesting government employee memorial story here in Springfield, MO. We had a recent vote on April 8th to extend a sales tax that would help fund the police & fire departments pension plans fully. The city was overwhelmingly behind this but the vote was to support those that kept us safe and NOT support the city. Our city loves to waste money and the pension could of been fully funded earlier if not for this waste. The city told us that if we didn’t vote “no” on the bill (a “no” vote actually extended the pension which was a little confusing) then police and fire staff would have to be reduced to fund the pension. In the end the citizens did not want to hurt the city protection workers so the bill passed (with a no vote).

    It was interesting that the city had this position because on March 29th a longtime city director died of cancer and on April 4th the city decided to have a memorial procession with 100+ city vehicles. This included bulldozers, dump trucks, drill trucks, lift trucks, etc. I had NEVER seen this many city vehicles in one area of town in my life. Well, the amount of fuel used to move all these vehicles was pretty expensive. The REAL kicker though is that the city workers GOT PAID (I believe it was overtime but I don’t have information on that) to be in the procession. These workers were so honorable that they had to get paid for a procession. To be clear these were utilities\city works workers and not police and fire workers.

    @Nevermind

    Eminent domain is never liked by all but atleast there is a reason behind it in this case. Energy security is WAY more significant than saving a turtle that isn’t being hurt by the cows anyway.

    I’m truly not trying to be a jerk but there is SO MUCH false information flying around lately it’s starting to get ridiculous. Sure, PCUSA isn’t perfect but it’s far from the “false Christian denomination” people make it out to be. I actually came from an Assemblies Of God church and they had a whole other set of issues that were different than PCUSA issues but no less important. True AOG members are no less Christan than true PCUSA members, but are also no MORE Christian either.

    @LoveGod

    I have no clue where people are getting all this false information. Here is a correct “rewrite” of your post.

    1. The whole thing about female pastors is the only true statement in your post.

    2. PCUSA believes in creationism just as much as any other Christian denomination. The only evolutionary aspect that true PCUSA members would even support is that of micro-evolution. Yes, evolution can happen over time based on mutations and such but we STILL believe that God created life.

    3. PCUSA does not support divorce or sexual immorality. Yes, if a spouse is getting abused then PCUSA understands that divorce is necessary. However, many of the PCUSA pastors won’t even officiate a marriage until the couple goes through extensive church based marriage counseling (provided free by the pastor). Sex outside of marriage is frowned upon and is no way supported by the church.

    4. PCUSA does not support gay relationships. The church welcomes gay people into the church because shunning them serves no purpose other than driving them away from God. Who knows what their future holds but it can only help if they are closer to God. There are a LOT of gay people who actually want to be closer to God but most churches will only concentrate on them being gay and not them wanting to be closer to God in general. Being gay isn’t their central identity as a person wanting be a Christian. We all fall at one time or another and EVERYBODY needs to be helped along the way.

    The majority from southern Missouri can tell you that this would be more than symbolic. Sure, it probably isn’t technically legal to override federal law in this case but we really don’t care. For many down here it’s more about what is right and not necessarily what is legal. We would have it no other way.

    Washington had absolutely no chance of dying in battle because he was a complete bada**!

    I have actually had conversations with Christians that have different views of what Hell is. Some view it has a place of nothingness where you can’t enjoy the grace of God and some view it as an actual place of eternal torment. Heaven and seeing Christ as a deity seems like those base beliefs that should transcend all Christian denominations.

  • March 6, 2014 at 4:37pm

    That’s what makes this so bizarre. This should be one of those common undisputed facts among ALL Christians no matter what denomination they belong to.

  • March 6, 2014 at 4:26pm

    Regardless of what the words were changed to the Presbyterian church believes Jesus died for our sins. We understand that God has wrath but still still loves us. Yes, it is one of those talking points between denominations but for better or worse we don’t talk about wrath as much even though we still know it’s there.

  • March 6, 2014 at 3:56pm

    “Specifically, the church expressed concern that many Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) leaders do not believe in the deity of Jesus, nor do they embrace salvation through Christ.”

    I have been a member of the Presbyterian USA church for years and I have NEVER talked to or even heard of a Presbyterian that believed this. We send church members to the national conferences and still no proof that this is an issue. Sure, there might be a handful of rouge churches that need to be kicked out but this would be an extremely rare occurrence. I realize that Presbyterian stances on issues like gays and Israel are not popular among many Christians but people need to realize that this is more to do with the redemption of the sinner and not the sin itself. Even then, Presbyterians don’t destroy each other because of these issues. We do have very thoughtful talks about these two issues alone but in no way is it to defy God or the teachings of the Bible. I have seen articles like this before and it’s nothing new. However, the whole part about Presbyterians not seeing Jesus as a deity and not recognizing salvation through Christ is laughable.
