Was Jesus gay? The Bible outlines a time in his life where he and a large group of men traveled around in the desert, sleeping under the stars, sipping wine and sharing all of their meals.....
Jesus had no children and never married. Any of the disciples have wives and children?

From what I’ve read Osteen is not paid by his church. He gets his money from royalties. And if he makes a billion dollars off of his books I don’t really care. God chooses to financially bless some (Solomon comes to mind but the list is quite long). Being financially blessed does not mean you aren’t suffering for God.
On the other hand, Matt is spot on in his analysis of the prosperity gospel. Spot on. Christianity is about Christ. Your relationship with God is what it is all about. If you don’t get that right – nothing else matters.
The fact that Osteen makes a lot of money is irrelevant. He’ll be judged by God based on what God gave him. The fact that he rarely mentions Christ – HUGE RED FLAG. This is the real problem.

This is a time when Americans need to be coming together to fight a common enemy. And what are you doing? You’re continuing the divide and conquer tactics of the morally bankrupt.

Sunday school 101: You’re born a sinner. Despite that fact, sin is not ok.
So have you gone back to your first wife - rather than continue to live in an adulterous relationship with your second?

In a poll I will give my honest estimate of who is the best candidate running. On November 2nd, however, I’m voting for whoever is polling highest against the democratic nominee. If that is Johnson, great. If it’s Trump, fine. If it’s Mickey Mouse – I don’t care. My vote will be an anti-DNC vote. If you love this country I humbly suggest you join me.

Not supporting the republican nominee is, IMHO, worse than supporting Trump when the alternative is Hillary or Bernie.

A lot of people who are brilliant in one area start to think they are brilliant in many areas. And other than a very few exceptions (Euler comes to mind) they’re not.
Is Trump a demagogue? At this point I tend to think this is just who he is and not something he’s intentionally doing to appeal to the masses. But I could be wrong. Either way, he’s better than Hillary or Bernie.
As for England staying in the EU, Hawking gave the reasons from a scientist’s viewpoint why they should stay in the EU. I respect that. But on the list of important topics to consider when making this decision research does not make the short list.

I agree with you 100%. I’d ask anyone complaining if it would be different if their 3 year old had fell into the pen. If they answered no I’d call them a liar to their face and if they answered yes (or dodged the question – same thing) I’d call them out as a hypocrite.
Dr. Frost: I would ask them to look in the kids eyes and then tell the little boy they are sorry he is alive.
You are right, hypocrites....or lunatics. Anymore I am not sure witch.

It’s ok to take this view – but if you do then you need to address what the employees have said. Do you think they’re lying? What if they are telling the truth? Don’t you think their list of “reliable” news sources is slanted?
I obviously didn’t go to the meeting but what I’ve read so far I find disturbing.
The bigger question is why would anyone get their news from FB?

Apparently wherever society dictates. They’re trading in God’s absolute standard for society’s moral compass of the moment.

“To serve our diverse community, we are committed to building a platform for all ideas,”
until someone wants to write “All Lives Matter” on their idea wall….

Two quotes to keep in mind when being questioned by congress:
“I’m sorry senator, but I don’t recall.”
“Many bothans died to bring us this information.”

The Washington Post doesn’t care about the truth. The only thing they care about is whether or not they can get the stink to stick. If it sounds plausible and Trump can’t disprove it – that far exceeds their standard for publication.
And if Trump hadn’t just done this to Cruz via his good friend who owns the National Enquirer, I might feel more compassion.

And while he’s at it he can explain how privatization is equivalent to segregation.

The liberals took over the education system 30+ years ago. They, along with the teacher unions, REALLY don’t want to give that hold up.
 May 16, 2016 at 3:15pm
You’re equating privatizing and segregation when they have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Give parents vouchers. Let private industry drive choice. Don’t force kids to go to a school where teachers can’t be fired for poor performance.

I don’t know one evangelical who had a problem with Romney in 2012 – and that is one group where I do have a lot of sample points – and I love to talk about politics. So I don’t buy this statement at all. And, by all accounts, this group has been coming out strong for Trump. I have no idea why – but it certainly doesn’t support your argument here. If you want to find someone to blame for the decline of American culture there’s a lot of blame to go around and the vast majority of it falls nowhere near the church.
 May 16, 2016 at 9:20am
Given the choice between Hillary and Trump I can see you choosing Trump. But why would you choose Trump in the primary? No one would refer to this man as being “godly” or “spiritually minded.” Why choose him over others in that race?

So essentially you’re a Trump supporter and anyone else is either the devil incarnate, supporting the devil incarnate or an anarchist – and their actions are equivalent to political terrorism. And here I thought this was just a political process to pick the next nominee with rules set down months and, often, years in advance. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

He’s right – it’s a process most Americans consider unfair. I would feel much better about his statement if he pointed out that he’s received a little over 40% of the votes (just counting Trump/Cruz/Rubio/Kasich) and a little over 50% of the delegates (just counting the same). So, overall, he’s been the biggest beneficiary of this rigged system. It’s a bit disingenuous when he only complains about states where it has hurt him and not about states where it has helped him.
