Satan has not been cast down yet, that will not occur until after the United States goes to war with Iran (soon). Then you can watch for the winds to start blowing and the Casting down to occur, you will not be able to miss it. Read Daniel 8-11 and Daniel 7

It is the person who is being disrespected, not the office. It is Obama who has disrespected the office.

@TexPat….”I would have preferred that they just used the little girl and not the jester.” I assume you meant ‘gesture’ instead of ‘jester’, though concerning the person to whom all this is directed, is quite appropriate.

“If (my 6-year-old daughter) saw that, she’d say ‘Why is that little girl doing that? What does that mean?’” Folsom said. “How do I explain that?” Well, my friend, how do you explain to your daughter what erectile dysfunction is? Ads for alleviating that is all over TV every day. Have you mounted a campaign against that? If not, you have no room to complain about a little girl saluting Obama the only way that is appropriate for the way he has trashed America. I hope we all symbolically do that on Nov. 6th. And to all his democrat cohorts in the house and senate. He and they are a disgrace to all of us.

Thomas Shea and/or Getty Images need to brush up on their sports knowledge a bit. The caption on a couple pics states Clemens pitched against the Camden Riversharks. Actually, it was the Bridgeport Bluefish,as the story indicates. Great job Rocket!

“Legitimate rape”…as opposed to illegitimate rape? I always thought rape was rape, without qualifiers. Silly me.
I thought about that for a few minutes. The only thing I can think of is he was referring to woman who dress or act provocatively. What a jerk.
Some Liberals have said, all sex is rape for the woman, so I guess we do need qualifiers.
Some conservatives have said, "Diaper me, madam, I've been a bad boy." What's your point?
Just saying---there has been women who wanted an abortion who filed rape charges. One man was in jail, I believe, for 15 years before the woman confessed that she had lied - then a couple more because the judge would not believe her before the Governor pardoned him.
But, I agree, that his chances of getting elected went to almost zero unless he can come up with the study that says this. Then he just might have a chance - provided the media will publish it.

I would take it to mean that there are many accusations of rape that turn out not to be actual rape.
"“Legitimate rape”…as opposed to illegitimate rape?"
As the topic of discussion was abortion, and he said that he's against abortion and all cases, "legitimate" likely would refer to women who would lie and claim they were raped to have an abortion in states where abortion would only be allowed in cases of rape.
The guy's still an idiot, of course.
PoliticalTs.com, after reading a few of the comments here, that very thought popped into my head too.
FREEDOMOVERFEAR . . Shoehorn! (check out John HW)
No, what he means is the only true rape is 'forcible rape' by a stranger. date rape, spousal rape, drugged rape, etc would not be counted. This is outlined in the Republican “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” bill which Akin co-sponsored with a certain Paul Ryan.
Their belief is that due to stress during forcible rape the fertilised egg cannot become implanted on the uterus wall therefore you cannot get pregnant. If you do get pregnant then it wasn't 'real' rape.
I'm sure Paul Ryan is going to get a lot of heat for it this week.
He obviously was referring to a real rape vs having consensual sex and accusing the guy of rape. Anyway you look at it though, he has to go. Real rape decreases chance of pregnancy? If there is any science to back this comment ( he said doctors told him this is so) , I'll find it. The GOP has to replace him. Maybe he can run in the future... but this election is just too important.
Or . . . was he saying legitimate - as in, WAS IT REALLY RAPE rather than - I would feel better about having this abortion if I convince myself that it wasn't consentual sex? I'm not sure what he meant. But for all that started SCREECHING - he has offered clarification. ("I made that statement in error. Let me be clear: rape is never legitimate; it's an evil act that's committed by violent predators. "I used the wrong words in the wrong way. What I said was ill-conceived and it was wrong, and for that, I apologize.")
I've checked Akin's record and he is very conservative. I have no problem with that - you know where he stands and how he's going to vote and the November election will decide his fate in Missouri. What I do have a problem with, is how quickly THE PARTY is willing to throw him under a bus for the sake of "winning". PARTY members from all over the country are weighing in and telling him to step down. Makes me think that the PARTY expected a different candidate to win the primary?

It is my experience those who point a finger at Christians for their perception of wrongdoing are the ones who know nothing of Christ. Since they are in an un-regenerative state, ie not born again, they possess the sin nature and thus follow their god’s lead as the accuser of the Brethren. As for posing in a position like unto the crucifixion of Jesus; it was a common method of imposing the death penalty in His time. That He died on a cross is not the important part, that He died to pay the penalty of sin for everyone is what is most important. Many of that time died on crosses. Though the cross is an important symbol of the price Christ paid on our behalf, it is still a symbol.

@ MDLWOODS – Your friend is wrong that had her forebears not been slaves she would have been born in Africa. She would not have been born at all. Not all slaves were taken from the same village. They were sold, yes some may have been taken, but most were sold by the chiefs in their own village, and not just from one village but many up and down the west coast of Africa. When re-sold in America the new owner did not make sure they all came from the same village. Thus, all children of slaves, and then their descendents were born of unions that would not have occurred had they all stayed in Africa. Consider that a woman has unique and new eggs every 28 days. A man’s contribution would not be the same as well. A child conceived one month by the same man and woman would be a different child if conceived the next month. How much more different would they be if a man and woman from different areas of Africa had children here rather than the children they might have had in Africa and with different partners? No, your friend and all blacks in America who descended from slaves should be grateful they are alive due directly to slavery. Reparations? They owe their very existence to slavery.

You know how multi-millionaire athletes always talk about “giving back”, as if they are embarrassed (as they should be) at the riches they have from playing (not working!) a game? This is Obama’s way for us to “give back” for all the “help” we got to get to where we are today. Only we will have no choice about “giving back” or how much. It will become another tax and another socialist means of subjugation. He’s just prepping us for it now.

Ashes….what Henry VIII did not know is that it was what he contributed to the resulting child that determined the sex of the child. Women have been blamed for so many things throughout written history when they had nothing to do with the perceived problem. I guess that might be attributed to Adam blaming Eve for giving him the forbidden fruit when it is obvious refusal was not an option (/sarcasm). Of course, when one is deceived one does not know he is deceived.

“At a time when Marriage Equality is the law of our state, we should not stifle students from engaging this issue on their own terms and in their own ways,” said Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.
And if his speech was against same-sex “marriage”, would you still feel the same?

1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” They don’t like being reminded of their future.

The problem for them would be that no one in Africa would take them. I’ve lived in east and west Africa and know what they say about American blacks. And there would be no welfare for them there. They might have to work for a living.

….continuation of previous post…
Everyone has the choice to accept or reject His Good News. We simply present it, and only if they want to hear it. No one will be dragged kicking and screaming into Heaven; it will be only by personal choice. We may believe it is for their own good, but nothing is forced on anyone as this young atheist has forced the removal of a prayer from this school on everyone. The more the Creator is removed from society the more we spiral into immorality.
No, we do not act as this young lady has. She is one forcing her will on many

@Bible Quotin’ Science Fearin’ Conservative American
Parents do have a right to raise their children in a way they feel best benefits the child. I would venture to say that most if not all parents, whatever religion or not, take their children to their particular house of worship as often as they desire. An atheist will teach their child there is no God “for their own good.” However, a 16yo child does not have the right to tell me that what she has done “is for your own good.” 16-years-old is not of sufficient age to tell this 65yo what is in my best interest. Further, I see nothing in that prayer that should be offensive to anyone. While the content of the prayer itself promotes healthy ideals, it is the fact it is addressed to God, the Creator of all things, including you, where her problem lies. And its her problem because she was most likely taught to not believe in God “for her own good” by parents who do not believe in God. In a sense, while she may feel God is being forced on her through this prayer, she is forcing her God-less view on the rest of her classmates.
Missionaries go to areas where Christianity is not known for the express purpose of exposing the inhabitants to the free gift of Christ. We do not force anyone to accept Christ, we just let them know about Him. Whether it is for their own good is their choice, not mine. We missionaries “go into all the world” as we are commanded by Jesus, to speak His Gospel (Good News). Everyone has the choic
