    Speaking of sturgeons..

    Many many years ago (and I wish I still had it) I had a cartoon that showed a member of the Islamic faith standing in front of their version of the pearly gates. He had two fish, one in each hand, and a very puzzled look on his face. The caption below read,

    You mean, in your mind? Dunno *g*

    Sometimes he dresses like the Nutty Professor or some other character but who cares as long as he manages to maintain the balance between free will (OK yeah yeah yeah Glenn, free agency *s*) and personal responsibility?

    That is, of course, the nub of all of the issues in society – the lack of said balance. Francis A Schaeffer wrote in one of his books, ‘How Should We Then Live” ( that covered culture and it’s an interesting take. Most folks simply have no clue about the connections.

    I’d love to have an opportunity to discuss these sort of issues with Glenn to get his take without all of the sniping.

    JGraham III,

    You are, of course, 100% correct. However, even at a distance of some 50 feet and driving by in an automobile, the filth, and almost unbearable nature of these fallen angels (or whatever you wish to call them) is NOT something to asked for or desired. But, if the Lord places you in a position to deal with them you can rest assured you will have His help.

    No kidding. And, well, the FBI can recover deleted files and there is this thing as a PST file if they’re using Windows.

    So, not only would Ms. Lerner’s PST file have SPECIFIC emails magically disappear the MTA (Message Transfer Agent – or ANYWHERE those emails landed have a HIGH likelihood of having the emails archived. And, if that doesn’t work each and every single recipient will have a copy as well as THEIR MTA – if they are going by the law, which is unlikely. Here’s just one example for the EPA:

    What was the phrase we learned as kids? “Ignorantia juris non excusat” or “Ignorance of the law does not excuse” and I’ve NEVER seen such a bunch of ‘forgetful’, inept, bunch of Chicago ‘thugs’ who WILL meet their Maker some day. I wonder just how well their excuses will go then? I can wait.

    What in the world do you think it will take to get folks like you to realize you are talking to yourself when you communicate like you just have? How in the world can you think that the manner in which you communicate helps advance your cause when you start your conversation in way that figuratively punches your audience in the nose? Do you really think they’re actually hearing you?

    Are you more concerned about being right? And somehow in your mind using this forum and the politeness of those who will simply ignore you, by being so stupid in the way you communicate, that you actually think this is earning you ‘points’? Really, this isn’t all about how smart you are.

    Until you get past your own self-absorption you’re not, in my opinion, helping the Lord’s cause at all. Other than a possible backdrop for others to use your posts as examples of how NOT to pitch your cause.

    PLEASE – think about the difference between talking AT someone or WITH someone. When you talk (post) AT folks you are wasting your time and theirs and you gain nothing. You are acting stupidly. Please stop doing damage to the faith you profess.

    Oh, by the way, I am an evangelical Christian and have been so for > 43 years. I live among the LDS people, disagree with them about their theology (politely) and actually have constructive conversations about faith WITH them. You have no idea how stupidly you come across.

    What I would have liked to ask Bill Maher is this, “What are atheists FOR?” Not what are they against, but what are they for?

    Oh, by the way, I have learned to be more grateful for the 6 1/3 years I had my boy than the 21 1/3 years he has been gone. Trust me, it hasn’t been fun but the larger lesson is that I can now know what it is like for a father to lose his son in a VERY VERY VERY small manner of what happened when the Father turned His face away from Christ.

    I hate having to have gone through the experience but find myself thanking God every day for loving me enough to allow me to see a little into His heart. I’ll see the boy again and hope to see you and anyone else I can persuade to come along and get a real life (if you haven’t already).

    You want character and backbone? Swallow a few crowbars.

    Nick not only would be the first to laugh at those jokes I’ve personally heard him mention the one about bob.

    You are quite correct that what comes around goes around. I’ve heard that as reaping what you sow. Nick is sowing good seed. What about the rest of us. Aren’t you (or I or we?) a little more guilty of the whole mote & beam thingy than we’d like to admit?

    Or are we too arrogant and proud in our knowledge, forgetting mercy and love?

    Just sayin’

    As a Christian about all I can think is the stupidity continues.

    Sounds like the professor got sideswiped both by legalistic Christians and the beer company.I suspect that with respect to the college this has more to do with alumni donors than the professor. Not being a lawyer (as in don’t listen to my silly advice *s* ) I say forget about suing the college and sue the beer company if you have legal standing.

    “There is nothing wrong(in fact it is correct) with trying to do what is right.”

    Well, that’s an interesting comment. First, let me say that I agree with you but if you’ll humor me a little I’d like to dissect it a bit? Nad my observations are not intended to be pointed at you, me or anyone else specifically, though they might apply and have applied to me in the past.

    The reaction I take from your comment is that many who do believe the Bible will not also “try to do what’s right”. Sadly, I must concur with the presumption that Christians do not translate what they believe (or say they believe) into actions. That is, by any honest Biblical interpretation EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE that Paul would teach. Later on in Romans he reacts to the charge that if grace abounds where sin abounds then we should all go out and sin all the more. He responds by calling that (in today’s terms) a load of crap. *g*

    If you are asserting that I would suggest NOT doing something because the Lord’s return is imminent you are incorrect. If you are asserting that many would thin that, again sadly, you ARE correct. We Christians ought to apologize for our attitudes and behavior and quit acting like a bunch of spoiled children.

    And, even if you are not a believer (I’d encourage you to become one) and hve a moral compass let’s get it on and clean these rats out of government.

    Most of all pray for God’s forgiveness and guidance for all.including the President, (holdi

    Tucker wrote. “He senses that we are on the verge of something big in history, something that will end in a terrible authoritarianism or in a new manner of freedom. If we are going to get that freedom, it will not likely come from top-down reform.”

    Couldn’t agree more. I’ll put my chips in the proverbial pot…

    We actually will get both – in a certain order.

    However, unless God pours out His grace we are closer to the end of man’s reign over men than most believe. After that, well, all hell breaks loose – followed by something very good. I see no reason why God couldn’t pour out His grace, would LOVE to see that happen as souls are at stake, but absent that, no hope for man.

    Men cannot govern other without corruption because we are, apart from redemption, depraved. And for those who object, that is a theological term. Go read up on it. Start with Romans chapter 1 & 2.

    This is absolutely correct AND slavery (at least at the time of Christ) was prerry high. From wikipedia

    “Estimates for the prevalence of slavery in the Roman Empire vary. Estimates of the percentage of the population of Italy who were slaves range from 30 to 40 percent in the 1st century BC, upwards of two to three million slaves in Italy by the end of the 1st century BCE, about 35% to 40% of Italy’s population.”

    Luke, the beloved physiscian is thought to have been a slave “on loan” to Paul. for example and the letter of Paul to Philemon is a perfect illustration of how to deal with slavery as a Christian in those times.
