    I still do not see anything wrong of informing someone that their soul is in danger as long as you can articulate why in a loving way. Muslims are going to hell because they have the wrong Jesus. They believe in Jesus but not as Savior. Some Catholics might make it, but I think people who depend on works based salvation are wrong about the importance of the sacrifice that Jesus made. I always get amused when people call Islam a hijacked religion. I doubt that any religion is more hijacked than Catholicism. Mormons have no hope because they have the wrong Jesus. Buddahist have no hope, even the nice ones, because they don’t know Jesus as described in the Bible. The Bible says that few will make it into heaven.

    History is repeating itself. Most people think that the Crusades of a thousand years ago started as a colonialist land grab somehow starting in the human depravities of greed and blood lust but it started with Muslim misbehavior and it went on and on before the Church and the governments of Europe finally acted. We are reliving that nightmare only both sides have access to terrible weapons and we have terrible leadership.

    While visiting a large office for a temporary assignment, I noticed a woman who seemed to be wearing maternity cloths. She was a model employee and very helpful to me in getting oriented to the routine and community with such things as housing, shopping and such. I was quickly taken aside by others in the office and warned that she was not pregnant but had a large inoperable tumor. I came back five years later and asked about her only to find that he tumor had recently killed her.

    What about political capital being stolen and spent lying to the potential voter. This reminds me of the pre-Obamacare propaganda when supporters of the bill dressed in doctors smocks to pose for the camera. This let the trusting people think that doctors were all for it.

    This is the natural and logical consequence of believing that the government can or should be producing anything specific. It is OK to produce safety with fire and police because it is not something specific. It is OK to produce order and law by furnishing jails and a court system. But, when a government tries to furnish a commodity, it must go to the producer or become the producer. The idea that the government can create wealth by distorting the economy has infected even Republicans. They just think they can do it better than the Democrats. All over the country governments have gotten into the hotel business to save and spur on their convention business. They always loose money. They have condemned property to offer the land at bargain basement prices to potential manufacturers. Many zoning laws steal the value of private property and seek to prevent people from living in the suburbs. Re-distributionist damaged the transportation Trust Fund by bleeding it of money that is diverted to sidewalks, train museums, flowers on the road, bicycle trails and other non-road projects. If you buy gas for your car, you pay for public transportation even if you never use it. Now they say we are not paying enough to fill the potholes when the money to fill the pot holes is being spent on other nice to have stuff instead of real transportation categories. We are going to see, eventually the city open a restaurant to feed the poor and hungry, thus stealing from another sort of business

    If it was not dangerous, it would lack utility with respect to self defense. I don’t suggest you defend yourself with a Nerf gun or rubber band gun.

    I am not sure I want them recruiting in the jails.

    What do you do when that “Servant of Another” teaches false doctrine and threatens to make that person who accepts false doctrine twice the child of hell? Most religions of the world are works based religions but I fail to see how the world profits from the works based assumptions and teaching of everything from Islam to Buddhism. If someone was drinking from a poison well, would it not be kind to give a warning?

    I forgot to mention that some communities, like Memphis, have been caught under reporting crime to make the chamber of commerce happy. Crimes are bundled before reporting so that violent crimes that may or may not have secondary charges are only reported as one or two basic charges. If you hijack a car with a gun it is reported, if you hijack a car with a knife, some of the charges don’t appear on the report.You can not trust statistics to be one hundred percent accurate. Some people do not report crime in places like Memphis because they are charge a heavy fee to fill out the paperwork as well as an unusual parking fee to go downtown and report it. I know that from personal experience.

    The problem is the definition of “gun violence.” Within this category is suicides by gun. While that is illegal, People who use a gun to kill themselves do not usually engage in other mayhem. The data does show that death by gun is lower in suicides in states with tough gun laws. The other problem with “gun violence” is that it includes people killed in shoot-outs with the police or with people defending their lives and property. Eliminating firearms by draconian and non-functional laws also eliminates legitimate self defense. It encourages more violence by increasing the supply of people who can not legally defend themselves. If criminals had a union, they would be for better more restrictive gun control laws, lower mag limits and nerf ammunition

    Buddhist are atheist. I think they proved that some atheist are a lot more warm and fuzzy than others. They also seemed to prove that there is a long way to go before CAIR propaganda converts public opinion.

    Every once in a while a funeral home accepts a body but the family does not agree to the cost of processing the body. He might be your dad, but you can’t remember him ever being around. He might not be your dad. This is probably a function of the bad economy plus the disintegration of the family. I do find it interesting that the owners of the business are portrayed as the bad guys and as if nothing else contributes to the problem.

    Cafeteria Christianity can cause a lot of problems, especially if you think that there is such a thing as Cafeteria Islam. I suspect that when we think that we can pick and choose what we want to believe in the Bible, we will be shocked to learn that the Muslims are not going to be doing the same, except to deceive the victims of their cult. We can not pick and choose what is Truth. We can only discover it and submit to it. Two opposing world views can’t be true at the same time even though two people who are reasonably happy with their version of the truth. The test of truth is not whether or not you are happy with it.

    With one of these, I would not need a big magazine! This should be a big hit in New York, Colorado and New Jersey.

    How many of the (babies/fetuses/ unviable tissue masses) had a uterus? Why didn’t they have a say in how their inconvenient life ended?

    We are not as republican as we should be. In the best republican world a legislator would commit the Golden Rule as well as represent the interest of the common folk who probably had a poor command of the subject. I suspect a lot of gun control legislation would not have made it in a truly representative legislature. My Republican Senators have voted for more taxes and are working on amnesty compromises right now. My local government often makes policy decisions and then announces that they are going to do something without getting the public involved. If it were not for state law forcing them to do publicity on certain areas, it would be even more difficult to see what is going on. My state government never enforces sunshine laws and bills are often written with weasel words that require the judges to figure out what was really meant. Like,”…condemnation will be used sparingly.” The defense off marriage Act was popular and represented most Americans but it was neutralized by judicial activism. My Republican Senators have voted for more taxes (internet taxes) and they are working on compromises that will bring on another amnesty by buying off others who need a little help saying yes. I think there is a decline in character in play here and that decline of character is bleeding through to the political system. Relativism, social justice and a post modern thought process is taking its toll.

    I would pick out key officials and stop their pay checks. It would take a while because it would
    have to start in the House as a bill. But it would gather momentum by simply picking out a few people in the EPA and IRS also. Everyone involved in implementing the policy of no cameras and no Congressmen would have their checks stopped. This would also stop their co pays for their insurance.

    The premise of global warming is that there is no God. Furthermore, we are at the mercy of natural and chaotic forces that may at any time turn on us and destroy the random configurations that have become people within the primordial soup of time. To them, God is an inept stage manager of a long term play where the stage will never bear up under the stress and use of the props. God is an incompetent farmer who is unable to manage the grazing capacity of his flock with what is available. We just woke up in the belly of an intergalactic space ship and we now have made our way to the control room. There are so many levers to pull and buttons to push and the labels on all of the controls are written in a strange script. Shall we read the instruction manual first or just start jerking on levers and pushing on buttons?
