Sorry, MRG7 is correct. The right to own a weapon is lost forever. It is the right to vote that is not.

I am an ex-felon, and a conservative. I am proof your argument is not valid.
August 22, 2016 at 7:05pm
Yes, there are. When you commit a felony, you are a felon. Just too many people in this country now think that as long as you were not caught, you are a fine, upstanding citizen.

He CAN restore the right to vote for people convicted in Virginia on state law. He CANNOT restore the right to vote for people convicted in Federal court. He also CANNOT restore the 2nd amendment rights as it was taken away by the federal government, not the state.
The Constitution says the states have the right to decide who gets to vote, and when the vote happens.
It is called Federalism. It is the way the Founding Fathers designed our system of government. If you have a problem with it, dig one of them and and yell at them.

Please try to get your facts straight before you make a fool of yourself.

The person who will have the biggest impact in getting Hillary elected president will be Donald Trump.

What an idiot.

They do not want equal rights, they want endorsement.
Yes, jfc1068. What is demanded is that churches, affiliated religious based schools, and, by extension, God, approve and ordain their relationships. If that were not the case, there would not be this push to force churches and people of faith to accomodate and participate.
God condemned homosexual behavior as an abomination. It seems VERY unlikely that He will bless homosexual unons.
But, let's not forget that we ALL fall short of the glory of God, and just as we all need His grace and mercy, so should we extend that grace and mercy to others. Speak truth with love ...

Not 22 Trillion. You missed the word, “combined.”

Please learn the proper way to use contractions. The way you write makes you seem uneducated.

She has eyes? I never noticed.
 July 28, 2016 at 7:01pm
Accusing her of having an ulterior motive when all she did was point out the kindness of another shows how dark your soul has become. Try shining some light into it. You need it.
 July 27, 2016 at 5:46pm
And it is obvious you have NO principles.
 July 23, 2016 at 12:56pm
Once you throw away your principles you can never get them back. Only a Trumpaholic would not understand that.

I wish you were right, but I’m afraid you are not. I have personally seen evil behavior from cops in uniform and have seen other cops who were there just pretend they never saw anything.

The major problem is that there are too many people who refuse to become educated about the people running, the ideas being voted upon and the issues that confront this country. As long as that is the case, we will keep getting the leaders we asked for, not the ones we need.
and those that do find themselves with a choice between a buffoon and a criminal.

While I agree with you that they have not been given directives to go out and kill, there are many who think the badge gives them the right to do just that.
In my six decades I have personally seen many times, (with my own eyes) police who abused their positions of power because they became drunk on it. One should not paint all police with the brush dipped in the ink of the crooked. But one must never pretend the crooked wiggle their way into the police force also.
That does not even include those who never had the proper temperament for it and were overwhelmed by the power and let it control them, rather than the other way around.

I cannot see how refusing to remain in a position where he would be forced to embrace what he considers to be a sin is giving up. Sinning is sinning, even if you do it for what some people consider to be a good reason.

“If you want to enter life, keep the commandments”
Therein lies the flaw of the cult of Evangelicalism. The cultists believe to enter the kingdom of God, all they have to do is accept him. Then they are pure as the driven snow, no matter what they do.
That quote shows you have to “keep the commandments.” In other words, the action of “keep[ing] the commandments” is the action that is required.
Only the evangelical cultists refuse to accept all the the teachings of Christ.
This has nothing to do with Christ. This is about using children to make mentally ill people. And thinking like a liberal here. It goes to the drug companies and corporations and others like the medical community who benefit from this. Planned Parent Hood profits off death.
No u don't just accept him. You obey and trust him. Out of faith comes obedience.no evidence of faith - no real faith. And don't think he doesn't know the difference.there is no degree of sin. Sin is sin. We are called to follow, do our best and when we fail rely on Grace. He wants relationship. It's not a one way street. Through that relationship (Christ makes that possible ) we are made righteous. Without Christ's sacrifice we could not do enough, be enough to approach God. There now wasn't that fun?! Gee I'm pretty sure I'm going to get slammed big time . Yes I know this is drivel to you but I just couldn't help myself when so many don't know what they are talking about but insist they do.

Please, someone teach these writers that the past tense of “plead” is “pled” not “pleaded.” That is like saying I readed this article.
