    I think what these police cameras show, and we’ll see more of these, is the human reaction of an officer who normally is portrayed as a robot by so many on the left, and much of the media.
    In the moments after the takedown, we witness the humanity and wave of emotions. For those who say cops are just out to shoot people- the officers’ lives, and family life get instantly turned upside down. Why would anyone want to go through that? Even though they may have been killed or maimed by not acting, there is still the human emotion. Like someone else said here, it’s not in our normal nature to take another life- justified or not.

    On the other hand, we see Islamic extremists kill in barbaric ways as if it is a day at the park. We see gangsters kill their the very kids they grew up with and brag about it.
    The difference? This officer, like so many others, have their “moral compass” on the right direction- barbaric killers and gangsters have their compass set on the dark side- evil.
    Prayers for the officer and his family, as well as the young man’s family who made a horrible decision that snuffed out his life. He had a choice – it didn’t have to end like that. Choices- some have little effect, some leave us better off, but others can leave us in the gutter…or 6 feet under.

    Why am I not surprised that the Americans United for Separation of Church and State suddenly flock to support a Muslim’s rights in prison. If this was an Amish man in prison asking for the same rights, would the atheist group make a point to inject their supportive opinion into the story? Doubt it.

    Look, I don’t have an issue with having facial hair for this purpose. But I think it’s ironic to see atheist groups who go out of their way to work against the rights of Christians, step out to support Islam. There is no consistency in atheist activism. But what else would we expect from a so-called “progressive” group.

    Someone who responded to this woman said, “One of the (many) unfortunate aspects of modern day Christianity is that women are discouraged from celebrating their sexuality. Can I have an amazing ass and also be close to God”

    This isn’t an aspect of “modern day Christianity”, it’s an aspect of living out a life holy and pleasing to Him. We were not made by God to “celebrate our sexuality”. Sexuality was a gift from God to be had by a husband and wife. But unfortunately, mankind (I have failed miserably at this too), have twisted sexuality- which is why our marriages, and families are a wreck in 2015.

    Moral relativism has leaked into the church, and in the end, it has put up a wall between mankind and God. The blessings that we can receive when we actually obey His word is just amazing- but most of time we let our flesh, and emotions, make our choices rather than truth.

    For years, I made ALL of my decisions in life what would make ME happy- both physically and emotionally. I went from a college grad professional to a homeless dude sitting in his car with a needle in his arm.

    11 years later, I have given pieces of my life back to God- I have 11 years sobriety, run a small business with my father, and just bought my first home. Give God an inch and He will give you a mile…

    These are the situations that you would NEVER see so-called “tolerant” progressives do to someone with religious beliefs other than Christians. Do you think Walton would gift a book to challenge a devout Muslim broadcaster? He and his “people” would be afraid to be politically incorrect, it would be considered borderline “intolerance” for the Islamic culture.

    But in the end, libs like Walton wouldn’t have the “basketballs” to challenge anyone other than Christians.

    That’s awesome! I’ve seen those Storm Trooper association at events before- they really do a lot of wonderful things for kids- and they are all just members of our community who are Star Wars fans…or as I call myself, a Star Wars nerd. :-)

    This is why I’m not on Facebook- everything is taken out of context, then reposted, taken into another context until we have “professionals” talking about bad parenting, psychological profiling, etc.

    If my mom would have posted half the photographs and poloroids (remember those), on Facebook back in the 70′s or 80′s, the P.C. police would have knocked our door down.

    People need to chill…

    The arrogance of these people never cease to amaze me. Instead of having a human to human moment, the leave it to the Michelle Obama to twist it into a racist situation. They still ignore that the so-called “racist” America put their un-qualified butts into the White House…

    Wow. Bringing in a book Glenn wrote years ago (wrong title btw) into a story about a hyped snake story? By the way, 5 years AFTER I recovered from heroin addiction, I read the book, and Glenn asked his listeners to share stories related to the book giving them inspiration. I wrote in.

    I was featured in the theatrical, stage version of the Christmas Sweater- interviewed, etc. I shared how God healed me, but reading the book reminded me of my walk through the storms of life.

    And btw, running a network/business that employs hundreds of people who can feed their families cost money. Don’t want commercials, products being sold- go watch PBS…It’s called capitalism- aka free market aka making the economy go round

    Suicide is never part of God’s plan- that is, the god of Isaac, Abraham and Jacob…

    I’m not in her position so I can’t imagine what she’s going through…BUT…

    A few years back my pastor lost his wife to the exact same illness. It was tough, hard to watch, and painful for her…but the impact she made on the lives of people, her family, and even people she didn’t know- was earth shaking.

    In fact, in her final days, she wrote on her blog that she was humbled that God would pick her to get this disease so she could shine His light and love on people. In other words- it was the pastor’s dying wife, who was lifting hundreds of people up in the end.

    Had she taken her own life prior to those final months/days, miracles in lives around her- far and away, wouldn’t have been witnessed. The legacy she ended up leaving behind because of what she did in her final days still reaching people today.

    I believe God does His most immaculate, and beautiful work in the most ugly, and painful places. Because it is those places where His children realize, and acknowledge their need for Him…and miracles are unveiled.

    First time I saw Lecrae was through Billy Graham…YES, Billy Graham. For those who might scoff at, or not GET what he’s doing- you may need to get out of your comfort zone and see that singing Kumbaya ain’t cutting it when it comes to reaching many of the “un-reachables”- not so say it is we who reach them- It is God through the Holy Spirit that does that.

    But just as Christ sat with the “untouchables” of society, as the Pharisees looked down their noses at Jesus for daring to do such a thing, performers like Lacrae are meeting an entire segment of society where they are at- without compromising his faith and morals.

    I have several teens I worked with who have since come to know the Lord through God using me to get down on their level (not morally). A young “thug” came into my ministry and I knew he was a rap fan. I played some Lecrae, along with some other Christian rap artists. He was like, “This is Christian music?” I said, listen to the words.

    If we want to play semantics, we can all show up at church in robes, and sing in ancient Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic playing ancient harps and stringed instruments.

    I tell people- if you are into saving souls, come on down in the trenches, and get dirty. The churches that aren’t doing that have empty pews on Sunday morning. We’re into fishing for men, teaching them to fish, so they can then fish for men. It’s a good thing…

    So the guy wearing a Che shirt, who is one of the single most recognized 20th century fighter for Communism, is fighting against communism?

    The irony: If these young protesters where doing this in Cuba in the early 1960s, Che would be one of the ones rounding them up into prison camps…

    Leave it to a useful-idiot lib to take $1000 from a so-called “evil conservative”, call it “blood money”, then use it to fund abortions- making her donation ACTUAL blood money.

    There is a good reason why abortion clinics and/or Planned Parenthood won’t take donated 3D sonogram technology for pregnant woman to see what they are aborting…If an image is a thousand words- then a 3d image of a “clump of cells” that are in the shape of a human being with eyes, noses, ears, lips, and a beating heart will mean they are purposely ending a life (Most modern societies call that murder)

    Your right- I often believe that if Jesus, in flesh, walked into many churches today, he would be ignored, or questioned about his appearance, and the places he went.

    I have a long beard, both arms fully tattooed- I have also been a ministry leader in a recovery ministry at a strong evangelical church.

    There are men who come straight off the streets, and chaos of their life and immediately connect with me, knowing I won’t judge them on their appearance or background. My appearance shouldn’t matter, but to these “fresh off the battlefield” men- it is a big factor.

    I speak Biblical truth, show grace that Christ showed me, and I get to watch God transform lives. Sometimes we have to go into the battlefield- but we don’t go alone. We go brother with brother, holding each other accountable…to make disciples! (Mathew 28:19)

    For those not familiar with Andrew W.K.’s music- outside of his “Party Hard” tunes- go visit iTunes and listen to some of his classical piano stuff. He is classically trained and while he might look like a metal head- he is much more then that.

    And with that said- ROCK and ROLL!

    I work in a recovery ministry- have watched men and woman of all ages “clean house” of the things that come between them and a relationship with God. For some it is drug addiction, but for others it is anger. I had a guy whose anger came between him and his family, coworkers, friends, and of course God. The anger did to him what drunkeness does for others.

    So we realize that it’s not always about what “it” is, but does it come in between them and God. In the end the junk we need to clean out of our “closets ” is simply sin- or it could be old resentments we need to take care of through forgiveness.

    I quit using drugs 10 years ago- but if I go and eat food in a way that hurts myself, and in turn, other people because of the after effects- That’s still sin…and getting in the way of my relationship w/ God. I’d be a hypocrite if I rationalized one over the other.
