    Nothing in the Constitution limits the rights of an individual to express himself regardless of the location or the employment of the individual.

    Are anti-theists so easily confused as to not be able to tell an individual act from an act of Congress?

    What do you suppose would happen if there was a big gas leak and the place just happened to go boom?

    What would happen if the outside spigot was left on but the end of the hose connected to it was re-directed inside the house?

    What would happen if a report of a meth lab on the premises combined with reports of armed and dangerous occupiers was called in an an anonymous tip?

    What would happen if any one or a combination of the above happened everyday for 4-6 weeks?

    Property owner – how’s your insurance?

    I think – since illegal interlopers are squatting in your place – reasonable doubt would have to exist in the minds of the jury….

    I am just asking questions and making hypothetical deductions

    @ Lib – I agree – And we can change a culture but we have to start one heart and mind and soul at a time.

    @ John – thanks for clarifying,,,

    And thus, a good illustration into how difficult it can be to “read” inflection, meaning, intent and “the point” trying to be made when commenting (or reading coomments on a post such as this

    This (among other things) gives truer meaning to lay not treasures upon this earth and where your treasure lies there will your heart lay also (horrible paraphrase – but you get the gist)

    When we check ourselves because we fear that we will lose our jobs, our livelihoods, friends, reputations, (and thus the reason for the public shaming and destruction of those who dare resist – because it is effective) – I just have to ask…do you not believe what we are told in Matthew 6 ?

    Do we effectively have other gods before Him? (Exodus 20) ?

    While I too struggle with such choices (I wonder how I will really react when I am faced with such) – I hope I will be able to stand for righteousness and claim God’s promises – fear not …

    I remind myself of those promises and quote to myself – Matthew 6:34 – I especially like the Message version – “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes”

    When we act and trust as He says – we have no worries – we will have what we need when the time comes.

    So why do you believe that each human life special?

    If depends upon Who is the determiner of what constitutes a crime.

    Why is murder, stealing, perjury a crime?

    How does coveting lead to other crimes such as murder, stealing and perjury or adultery?

    How does worshiping money or another person or a position lead to crimes such as stealing, murder and perjury?

    How does rebelling against ones parents more often lead to lying, murder and stealing?

    How does adultery lead to murder, stealing (another’s spouse) and perjury?

    How does working all the time and losing sight of what really matters impact an individual?

    How does one determine what really matters?

    Hint Exodus 20……find a Rabbi for a better understanding

    Blink – you obviously haven’t actually read the Bible for yourself but are trotting out those tired, untrue claims made and promulgated by those “expert atheists” who you seem to follow with complete and utter faith….hmmm

  • [1] August 22, 2014 at 5:12pm

    @ Lanceintx – true while the non-believers will say “Christians beleive they are free to sin all they want to” – the difference they don’t understand is that when Jesus comes into your life as Lord – your “want to” changes

    I don’t know would you prefer to be typing in German or Japanese if the Allies hadn’t laid waste to Germany and Japan?

    It is hardly a moral equivalent since if Hamas stopped and left the region, no one would die, no one would starve and no one would be kidnapped, raped or pillaged. – (unless you would have supported the Nazis)

    so you will rely on the government to protect you rather than taking responsibility for your own protection against islamic hoards?

    I think there are more of us with the attitude of Nick Powers – when it comes to our shores there will be an armed citizen behind every rock and blade of grass

    Forgiven by whom and for what? Upon what is a moral value / act based?

  • [2] August 20, 2014 at 8:25am

    hmmmm – interesting but that seems to corroborate what God has set up for marriage to begin with -whodathunkit?

    I think you are missing the point. Anger and “revolution” isn’t the answer.

    Yes we as a nation need to have a “heart” change – a revival – a renewing of our principles.

    Until we can – as James Garfield hinted at – “Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. . . . [I]f the next centennial does not find us a great nation . . . it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces”

    And as Glenn said yesterday on his show – we haven’t even come close to exhausting our political course of actions. It took more than 10 years before the Revolutionary War happened – they had exhausted every legal, political recourse.

    I am long past annoyed and frustrated (mostly with my brain-dead, unthinking fellow citizens) but I am also knowledgeable enough to know that while we are in a crisis – we are not anywhere near the need for armed conflict or a coup.

    There is a BIG difference between – fed up and an armed insurrection.

    I too get annoyed with Glenn’s recent messages – until I actually stop and think about it – especially in line with scripture..

    Start with Mark 9:38 to the end of chapter

    How about having a blow-out of the orbital eye socket ?

    So how many know that Tom Delay was exonerated after a witch hut by the same DA’s office? This stellar example of character and decorum was the Asst DA in the Delay crucifixtion…

    If Christians were really following the Great Commission – they would be (as I am) more concerned about the lost (those who will be left behind)

    Our “treasures in Heaven” are to be souls won to Christ. A true follower of Christ has a great concern for those who are not ready.

    My heart aches for those around me who are not ready. I am not content with only my eternal security – I won’t to take as many with me as I can.

    I have to righteously question (as in looking at the fruit) how much of a Christ follower one is, if one can sit waiting to be raptured while so many around are not prepared

    Did I say sounds like – no – I said comes from (as in the same root) – I see you failed language arts in school or are you from a later generation where such wasn’t even taught?

    And you would be wrong about the latin root…..

    So will the islamists heed the advice that the Japanese offered during WWII about not attacking the US (mainland) because there will be an armed citizen behind every blade of grass? Nah – islamists are not that smart.
