    @Chinishque
    Very good poem! However, I will say that about the “As oral sex in the office does not impeach” – although Clinton was not impeached for that act, he was for his perjury. Maybe that’s what you were talking about since the oral sex in the White House office itself didn’t bring about the impeachment.

    Ok, NO politician of ANY political party needs to be depicted with a halo over their heads. If it’s inappropriate for one, it’s inappropriate for another.

    Can some doctor out there put this crazy man on some proper medication?! ….and if he’s already on some – maybe he should be taken off of them….good grief!

    Thank you for sharing. I’ve heard some of these things off and on through the years as well. Especially about the neglected and poorly maintained flood walls and levies. So many pointed a finger at Bush saying it was “his fault”. Give me a break! No president is perfect but it’s not the responsibility of any American President by far (including Obama) to make sure flood walls and levies in every state are up to standard and code.

    @Momrules – I agree! A bar IS just a place. Many, many “moons” ago, when I was in youth group, we went on one of our retreats. This time we went to a lodge. We had specific rooms set aside for us for our worship, teaching and prayer time HOWEVER on Sunday morning – just a few hours before we were to leave for home, there was a mix up and a huge scheduling conflict. The lodge had over booked the room we had reserved and we were left without a Sunday morning worship place. I believe it was winter time so – no going outside. Instead, the management team went in the lodge’s bar, put sheets over all the liquor shelves and a bunch of teenagers and youth leaders filed into the bar for Sunday service. It was THEE most MOVING and POWERDUL service of that trip! The Spirit moved so heavily through that room (that just HAPPENED to be a bar)! I think all the kids were saved but many renewed their relationships with Christ and many of us were on our knees with hands on our folding chairs asking for God’s deliverance in the troubled areas of our lives. We prayed for, over and with each other. Tears, hugs and praises were spilled all over that bar that day as was the power of the Holy Spirit! I will don’t remember anything else about that trip but I will NEVER forget that bar room Sunday service!

    Amen.

    I think this is wonderful! The church is not about a building – it’s about the people and these people obviously feel comfortable to come and worship Christ without the feeling of being looked down on because of their background or what they wear. These people seem to understand that it’s NOT about religion (which Jesus is not about anyway), it’s about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. May God continue to bless them as they continue to reach out into the community in His name.:-)

    Must be an election year.

    @ Smokey – Hahahaha – thanks for the laugh (a sad, but true laugh).

    I agree in prayer with all who are praying for this woman. I can’t imagine what this would be like. Just imagine – instead of hair growing on your head, it’s nails! Instead of hair stubble growing on your legs, it’s nails! May God grant wisdom to the doctors (and anyone with healthier alternative ways), her and her family and friends so that she may find her way through this and find a cure.

    First – to get this out of the way – no, I am not gay and – no, I do not agree with the gay lifestyle (although what anyone does in the privacy of their own home is their business – but I digress). As far as homosexuals possibly suffering from depression more often – who knows, but that would actually make sense. If the feelings you have and the person you romantically love more than anyone in the world was considered taboo, wrong and unnatural by many in society, I’m sure it would lead you to depression as well (not to mention bitterness, anger and resentment. No, not excusing those feelings and actions – just simply pointing out the fact how loving them through Christ is that much more important).

    Many who suffer from depression also try to mask their pain through alcohol and drugs. I know quite a few who suffer from depression – most of them are straight and one bisexual who does NOT participate in any gay relationships (in his words – his relationship with Christ is more important. Though our friendship will remain regardless). Although none abuse any substances, I can very well see how that could very easily come into play.

    “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23

    Seriously now – does anyone ever see any of these in the westboro baptist people? Ever? Me neither. I pray one day they will allow God to melt their hearts of hate and come to know really know Him.

    Until then – it’s just like that new(er) saying:

    “Live life in a way to where the westboro baptist “church” will want to protest your funeral.”

    @moderationisbest:
    Uh, most people on The Blaze would agree with the Phelps family that homosexuality(and potentially allowing homosexual marriages) is one of the downfalls of our society.

    They just are honest in their hatred of gay people. They don’t look at their hatred of gay people through rose colored glasses like most religious people do.

    ——————————————————————————-
    Some (like the westboro baptist people) apparently DO hate gay people. Most Christians, however, do not. Disagreeing with someone’s lifestyle or someone’s view does not automatically equate to “hating them”. For those Christians who do struggle with hate towards gays or anyone else….they need to remember hating anyone is NOT the way of the Lord.

    Besides, you disagree with those who disagree with the gay lifestyle? Do you hate those whom you disagree with? If you do then – with all due respect – it would seem you have a battle of hate you need to overcome before it destroys you. If you DON’T hate those who disagree with you – then why do you assume with an arrogant belief of superiority that others are not capable of the same mentality and maturity?

    Depression is not partisan to any political party, ideology, creed or faith. If this is truly what he’s suffering from, I wish him all the best and pray God will give him peace and strength to work through this. As far as him still being in his position, I do believe he needs to step down until he gets back on his feet again.

  • July 27, 2012 at 4:13pm

    Sounds like he prepared his heart and soul long ago. May our Lord give his family and other loved ones peace, comfort and strength at this time.

    Forgiveness doesn’t mean letting the person off and handing down no punishment. You can forgive a person at the same time they justifiably pay for their crimes….like handing down the death penalty to this guy.

    ….and the award for worst actor in a dramatic interview goes to….Jamie Rohrs!

    Seriously, I’m sure Mr. Rohrs was/is legitimately upset about this horrific event but he came off pretty fake to me. Pouring it on so much that as he was describing the reasons he left his girlfriend and her and his children behind, it seemed like he was trying to excuse himself for his poor choices instead of taking responsibility for them. I could even understand if Rohrs got turned around so much from the chaos that he would end up in the lobby….BUT a man of character would have either gone back in after them or would have raced to every exit of the theatre until he found them.

    Mr. Brooks, on the other hand – now there’s a man of character and a hero! Putting his life on the line for complete strangers already makes him more of a man than Rohrs IMO. I hope this woman doesn’t marry him.

    What a beautiful little boy. I do hope he will have complete justice in this. It’s just so sad and tragic how we as human beings can forget (ignore and reject) the fact that we are beautiful creations of God just to toss that truth aside and to act like such animals.

  • July 23, 2012 at 6:09pm

    Well, it’s just like the saying always goes: If you can’t debate an argument legitimately – throw in the race card.

    @ChiefGeorge – Of course, it was her free choice to decide this, therefore making her responsible for her actions….and although I stand against abortion and do believe it is murder, I don’t believe it would/could ever be an easy decision for any woman to make. Most importantly though – no one has ever felt the love of Christ nor receives any healing through judgement and condemnation.
