    Nor I. If someone want to stick their plonker where it (in my opinion) ought not be then they should bear the responsibility for the consequences of the same and I’d even be willing to help pay for it BUT not at the expense of what I believe. Far too many Christians are compassionate here AND far too many others have NO idea of what the real numbers are.with respect to the terrible consequences so many deal with in the LGBT community.

    “Gay”, to me, in its current culturally-based definition is an utter sadness, not for me, but for so many who think this path will meet their real inner needs.I RESENT more than you might believe when “Christians” are mean as some are but I equally RESENT those who insist their precious “feelers” are hurt and want to deny me the very right they expect they are entitled to.

    A truly fair conversation in areas like this are few and far too far in-between and there is plenty of hypocrisy and outright ignorance to go around. Pahh..

    Fairly simple explanation I’d think; Until the Federal government overstepped their legal bounds and intruded upon said states right there really wasn’t anything to react to, was there…?

    Now, in all fairness, as a conservative Christian, I am of the opinion that many who call themselves by the name of Christ, from His point of view, are unknown to Him. I dare not say who as that is not my right nor privilege as to whom they may be.

    For example; just as counterfeit twenty dollar bills are the best “proof” of real twenty dollar bills I’d also assert that atheists are the best evidence for God. Without God they have no definition or meaning. And, if there really is no God why are they so aggrieved? Seems suspiciously close to projection and transference but, hey, what do I know?.

    rsawarhawk, that is Senator Cruz’s Constitutional right – to express HIS opinion whether you or I agree with or disagree with it.

    Are you proposing removing his right to express his opinion because you may dislike them? If so you want one rule for you and another for him.There’s a word for that.

    Bet she feels good about herself though.

    Slight correction…

    There are, in fact, an innumerable number of (little ‘g’) gods; only one true God.

    Do we understand this? Nope as that would be asserting that finite can comprehend infinite. Never happen.

    Does God’s existence as defined depend on our understanding it? Anyone who thinks it does hasn’t a clue and is pretty ehhhh.. uninformed, deluded and I’d say self-absorbed in their thinking.

    “How many Gods are there?” – One

    ” Are each of the three persons God?” – yes

    For those of you who have voted this response down there is, unfortunately, a bit of truth to this post by LibertarianSocialist. While I am neither socialist nor libertarian in the strictest sense one factor embedded here that needs to be mentioned is the concept of Replacement Theology.(a.k.a. supersessionism – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supersessionism )

    The outflow of this idea has led to many justifications of political positions that allowed for the mistreatment of others – as the church became arrogant in the same manner the Jewish folks were at the time of Christ. “We’re better, smarter, more moral…, do what we say or be punished.” which, of course, sounds like modern-day liberalism.

    One thing LIbertarianSocialist I’d want to point out is that these KKK Democrats (mostly but not all D’s) in calling themselves “Christian” I would wager were no such thing as Christianity does not teach the sort of behavior witnessed regarding these people. I can call myself a purple pineapple but that does not make me one.

    Too funny…

    Imagine, individuals who say that this park promotes immorality also proclaim there are no absolutes from which morality is reasonably, honestly and rationally derived.

    Apart from a set of standards outside of humanity, they are left with, well, humanity. This, of course, soon devolves into “will of the majority” which, in fact ought to be described as “willfully imposing their morality on others” while at the same time complaining that Christianity does the same; IT DOES NO SUCH THING. And the willful imposition can be readily seen in China and other regimes where the State defines moral “truths”.

    Christianity; actually the Judaeo-Christian does in fact present a standard of morality and the notion of personal responsibility. And, to be fair, far far too many “Christians” over the centuries HAVE imposed their version of the Christian ethic on others, violating the very essence of the doctrine of Free Will (a.k.a. – Free Moral Agency, Choice, etc..) This is wrong.

    So, you atheists who object? Go for it. You have that right. And you even have the right to be stupid or irrational or willful. Not a single one of us has the right to ownership of truth. It is quite able to stand on its own and it will survive these knuckleheads.

    “What is truth?”, Pilate asked while it was standing righ in ftont of him.

    Keres, Sitting on my desk is a red & white crocheted cross. About 44 years ago, when I first became a Christian, it was “spiritual” to be poor. (I might add that being rich OR poor has NOTHING to do with spirituality – lots of televangelist crooks out there). Anyway, a young lady and I were dumpster diving behind a five & dime store. As she handed me a closed box to toss into the adjacent bin I clearly head a voice that said, “Open up the box.” I asked her if she heard it; she said, “No”. I opened the box and there was the cross.

    Explain that please. I have the physical item.

    Your problem is not intellectual as you’d like others to believe. Rather it’s most likely moral and/or simple fear. You’re afraid you might be wrong.

    Now, with respect to your comment re: Last Days.I’d recommend you read 2 Peter 3:3. He talks about you. And, do yourself a favor and pull your head out of your ass.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised that kids in that neighborhood, by and large, see much worse and, unfortunately, more often then they see this type of event.

    Sad for the kids actually. The Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons really are, as Rep. J.C. Watts put it, “Race hustling poverty pimps.”

    Saying “Two Corinthians” is NOT a gaffe. It IS, however, culturally, an indicator of one’s origin. Those from overseas, primarily the UK use this form of speech all the time. I’ve heard this for YEARS, again, primarily from my good friends from overseas.

    Apparently not only are the press stupid or ill-informed but a bunch of Christians are as well.

    If someone wrote ‘colour’ as opposed to ‘color’ would the same folks get their panties in a wad? Probably so if they saw a political benefit. And do NOT use the word ‘fanny’.

    This is so disingenuous and such a non-issue.

    We hit 31 last year. Congrats to those of you leading the pack!

    A little humor always helps. I like Mark Gungor’s quotes like, “Your spouse may irritate you until the day you die……..but the good news is, you die” – Mark Gungor

    I’d recommend you reconsider the consequences of your words. Matthew 12:37

    That may well be and I am glad he does not answer to you, me or anyone else on this earth for that issue. I think Christians often confuse this kingdom with the real one, and I say that as a Christian. I wish many who name the name of Christ would work a little harder at being reminded of whom they represent.

    Having said that, and entering squarely into the affairs of this world I think of all the candidates, and what I know of them I’d prefer Ted Cruz over the rest. But I have to say I am grateful to Mr. Trump for “plowing the road” in the sense of making it OK to –finally– speak the truth on some issues. Geeze, I almost fainted today when I read that the RNC had finally found a pair and threw their MSNBC contract out. Of course, being the weenies they are they did wait until after the last DEM debate. No doubt afraid of [fill in the blank for this week].

    Oh, for goodness sake. “Two Corinthians” is perfectly normal and regular for pastors to utter. It just so happens to be a pattern of speech more common with our friends in Britain and other locales around the world where they are more influenced by the Queen’s English that Twitter.

    That folks do not know this is evidence of just how ignorant (dare I say willfully do?) Christians in America are? I wish we’d would get over ourselves a little. What the heck are we going to do when the fur (as in real persecution) really starts to fly? Whining, complaining and griping, with an eye towards feeling your smarter with evidence that you are not all around is not going to help at that point. I’d suggest a re-commitment and reevaluation of *your* spiritual life first.

    And, PLEASE, get away from the TL;DR crowd. What a bunch of dopes.

    I mean.. “oooohhhh.. Donald Trump used a phrase I have never heard before. That must mean he’s ignorant.” No, it means nothing of the sort. It DOES mean you’re a knucklehead and need to get out more though if you actually think this is a bid deal.

    Does this mean Donald Trump’s spiritual life is as many would want? Nope, nor the opposite; and given how this speech appears to have an element of pandering I’d be delighted to hear more so I can decide.

    My bad.. The article was published in 2012. Guess this reporter doesn’t do much research either.

    Self-righteous condescending elite snob reporter.

    I wonder how many people in Britain die unnecessarily in their “health” system each year because the ‘nutters’ who set it up are like this reporter? LOL.. Just found this and it’s published TODAY: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2173120/Hospital-blunders-Almost-12-000-preventable-deaths-hospitals-year-errors-care.html

    This video, of all I have watched, seems the most relevant: http://www.amazon.com/Real-Face-Jesus-Jonathan-Adams/dp/B005CXOGMS/ref=sr_1_9

    Quite an interesting approach actually. Is it an accurate representation? Don’t know (yet *s*) but it does seem to pass the smell test.
