    @repairsea…why do you insist people cannot leave the church?! That’s ridiculous. More accurate is that people (including self-described Catholics) were never fully in the “church’s” grace to begin with.

    @TH777, I also am ex-Catholic, and we really do exist. In fact, there are many more of us than people know. My non-denominational church has several former Catholics, and we all found Jesus outside the Catholic church. This is not to say that others cannot find Him in Catholicism. We didn’t.

    I never read the Bible or was even encouraged to, in 40 years, in the Catholic church.

    Re: narcissism. I believe this may be in reference to believing Catholicism is the ‘one, true church,’ and discounting other Christian religions. For me, there’s nothing that speaks of narcissism more than hearing that someone ‘doesn’t understand the faith,’ if they leave it. I understood the faith; I studied the catechism for years. When I began reading the Bible, I left the church. (And yes, you can ‘leave’ the church. In fact, according to the Catholic faith, many people who are currently sitting in pews and taking communion are operating in sin, as they are to be sinless through penance before taking communion. — NO ONE is free from sin except Jesus Christ.)

    If you liked this, you need to check out the keynote speaker at the 2013 INAUGURAL PRAYER BREAKFAST…wonder why Blaze hasn’t covered this yet? It was over 2 weeks ago.

    For all you Ron Paul supporters, get over to: http://www.dailypaul.com/221987/give-me-liberty-money-bomb-march-23rd-open-thread and put your money where your mouth is. Dr. Paul needs you.

    For the rest of you supporting someone else, please hurry up and do your candidate research today, so you can donate to today’s Money Bomb like the rest of us Liberty-lovers. Because, truly, anyone who actually reads or listens to Dr. Paul with an open mind will soon come to support him.

    If you read the headlines in most media, you would believe it’s all a Ron Paul-supporter issue. If you’re willing to actually read something other than the headlines and the Blaze, you will see this is about something much bigger. What started the ruckus was one man wanting to videotape the event, and supporters of all the candidates were upset that he couldn’t. What happened after that (and you can see it on the videos posted on youtube), is chilling. The chairman is elected without accepting any other nominees but one, even though people were yelling out other names. The vote proceeded, and passed without majority. To say this is only about Ron Paul is to hide your head in the sand. This is about all Americans because, next time, it may be your candidate getting the shaft.

    Visit her Amazon page and read her reviews. You will find that, regardless of the pro-abortion article above, she advocates natural families over adoption for what appears to be an all-encompassing negative view of adoption in general. Perhaps her opinion is rooted in personal experience, who knows? It is sad that this opinion has manifested itself in such a callous appreciation of abortion as a better option. Seems to me she needs lots of prayer, not insults, hurled at her. Hearts can be changed in an instant.

    I agree that, “the ultimate goal is getting obama out of there,” but I happen to believe Romney, Gingrich and Santorum CANNOT beat Obama. In the 2008 election, Obama won by securing the vote of the youth and the independents. Romney is too ‘wall street,’ Gingrich is too ‘establishment,” and Santorum is too socially conservative to win these groups. Ron Paul has already won the many youth and independents, according to many polls. He IS the ONLY candidate who can beat Obama. Ron Paul appeals to many, many people on both sides of the aisle because his message has remained the same, it comes from a true constitutional understanding, and it’s based on liberty and having a government run by and for the people. Santorum may be surging among Republicans, but his social conservatism makes him unelectable against Obama.

    Store what you eat, and eat what you store. Then, your storage rotates and, if nothing happens, you’re hedging against food inflation. Also, variety is key. Canned as well as dehydrated and a plan for fresh as soon as possible. Check into medical supplies, too. Simple infections without antibiotics can kill. Check out essential oils.

    Canceled my GBTV subscription this morning, and I’m about ready to delete the Blaze link from my Favorites bar. Really, Blaze? A ‘hat tip’ to Talking Points Memo??!!!!!???!!!!!

  • January 17, 2012 at 6:41pm

    Ha ha, SAINTFYRE, you talk about us — the anti-Obamacare crowd — as using our hearts and not our heads. Wait a minute. Aren’t the Pro-Obamacare people the *real* compassionate ones??!!

    Sorry, untrue. I had not given Ron Paul a second look until recently. Please do not do as media personalities do and paint all Ron Paul supporters with the same brush. It’s just not true anymore. It reminds me of pro-choice women who try to paint all pro-life women as abused, frigid and uneducated. It’s just not true, but they just can’t believe it.

    No mainstream media interview will make up or change my mind about the candidate I will vote for in the primary or general elections. It’s about time we stop looking to news personalities to tell us how to vote and start researching each candidate’s record, history, etc. on our own. ANYTHING can be misconstrued, edited and slanted to fit someone’s or some news corporation’s agenda. I’m especially disgusted by the recent talk about Ron Paul by conservative media, “If he wins Iowa, then something’s wrong with the Iowa caucus,” or “All Ron Paul supporters are as nuts as him, and he’s dangerous.” Well, I’m on the fence about who’s my favorite, but I’ve got to tell you, I don’t want to hear another word about nation-building or foreign financial aid until OUR country is back on track fiscally.

    I agree. Watching this GOP campaign is like watching someone on a new car lot….”Hmmm, do I want the Mercedes luxury sedan, or do I want the SUV? What about the BMW across the street?…Then Ron Paul shows up, and says, ‘Dude, have you looked at your bank account? I don’t think you’d better even be thinking about buying any car right now.’ “

    The ‘luxury’ of having a foreign policy that includes policing the world and wars in the Middle East is dependent upon whether we are living in bankruptcy squalor. When we are out of this economic and unconstitutional mess, then I will be the first one to vote for someone based on their foreign policy. Until then, I look to the person who can save THIS country from the current path it’s on. The whole foreign policy debate (along with the argument that Ron Paul’s policy is ‘dangerous’) is LUDICROUS until we can dig ourselves out of this crushing debt and impending tyranny. Ludicrous.

    This is efoods — I’ve checked out efoods…they do have MSG-like chemicals, it’s just not listed as “monosodium glutanate.” Any gums (carageenan, xanthum, carob, etc.), natural flavoring, etc. is the same as MSG – just derived from different sources. These foods would put me under the table with a migraine after one meal. They are overly processed, dehydrated food, though they are probably not as bad as Mountain House or some of the others. In addition, I’d question where some of the ingredients are being sourced. Many of these types of foods are made with ingredients coming from outside the U.S. I don’t know IF that’s true for efoods, but it’s a question that people should ask. Simply put, if people are not eating dehydrated MRE-type entrees a couple times per week, then their bodies will not easily make the jump to eating them full-time. Same with beans and rice. If you are not “STORING WHAT YOU EAT AND EATING WHAT YOU STORE,” you’re asking for a heap of trouble come crisis-time.

  • November 23, 2011 at 6:22pm

    Please do not *JUST* stock MREs and freeze-dried entrees…(Google it, everyone’s selling them). They are filled with chemicals, preservatives, MSG, gums, soy, etc. Sure, if you have NO other food, then by all means, eat them. But NOW, while you have the chance, practice gardening, stockpile seeds, learn to can your own meat and vegs, and STOCKPILE FAMILIAR FOODS (canned meat, canned vegs, rice, beans, flour, canned butter, canned cheese, etc.) MREs are for short-term meal replacement. YOU CANNOT LIVE ON THEM AND REMAIN HEALTHY, and if you are feeding kids, please be sure to store WHOLE FOODS, not the overly processed MREs. Their small bodies will react quicker to the junk in them.

    @BECKISNUTS…what I don’t understand is why you spend so much time on The Blaze calling Glenn and his fans “crazy.” Seems to me you’ve made it a personal mission to ‘out’ Glenn Beck and anyone else who believes as he does. Now, THAT sounds nuts. If Glenn and the people who support him are as crazy as you say, why do you give us a second thought, waste one brain cell coming up with witty posts, or wile away time on this site? Are you just a caring person trying to save us all from ourselves, or do you have some personal reason for the ongoing bashing of Glenn? And if you have *all* this evidence to show how Glenn and others are fakes, then perhaps you should take it to MSNBC, HuffPost, or any other liberal media outlet that would GLADLY pay you for such evidence. Otherwise, you’re just some oddball who spends time throwing spaghetti against a wall to see what’ll stick.

    Listen, I was at least in my early 30s before I realized the error of my liberal ways…cut her a break. She’s been brainwashed. IF she has any part of her brain untouched, then by the time she reaches her mid-30s, she should realize the error of her ways.

    Re: the callousness of her behavior…it is surprising that a 20-something will aggressively confront someone in their 50s, and a celebrity to boot. The arrogance and superiority complex many of these kids have is astonishing. If she has any remaining semblance of integrity or sense of right, she’s quite embarrassed right now by her antics. May be the best medicine for her.
