Ed Rendel could fast track through, bills at the eleventh hour, but not these days.
We have the democrat governor, thanks to Penn State Alumni and the Teachers Union.
Add to that, the masses of confusion within Philly and Pittsburg

the argument that Christians tolerate X (adultery, divorce, etc) so they should turn a blinded eye to homos – is crazy
2 wrongs do not make a right…
And frankly REAL CHRISTIAN are few and far between… they are a small flock…. I am guessing less then 20% of americans are REALLY obedient Followers of Jesus Christ.
I believe (or at least I hope) that the percentage of fundamentalist Christians is much lower...we've all seen the dangers of when people take their religion too seriously or too literally
I agree. The church has openly embraced whoredom for decades and subsequently used homosexuality as the whipping boy. I have actually heard persons in my church say that homosexuality is the worst of all sins. That isn't Biblical at all.
I find it interesting that the "church" chooses now to take a stand for morality. Homosexuality is just the natural progression when whoredom has been in the church for years. Couples are living together in an impure state prior to marriage and most turn a blind eye. The divorce rate among "Christians" is indistinguishable from that of the heathen.
I suppose I could take a "better late than never" attitude, but I don't really know what that would yield. The church needs an awakening to true spirituality and faith.
I know many gay men. I don't hate them at all. I tell them of God's love for them. My heart breaks to see how many fine young men have been beguiled by Satan into a life of destruction and pain.
I also lament that the church has mostly turned their back on the gays. I see church outreach ministries to hookers and drunks and drug addicts. I see prison ministries. I see missionaries going to countries on the other side of the world where God is the last thing on anyone's mind.
I don't see a rush to convert the gays. I've actually heard Christian leaders say they are beyond salvation. If the blood of Jesus Christ cannot save a homosexual from Satan's snare then we are all doomed and most miserable.

Please tell me WHO in their right mind would ever TAKE FOOD AWAY from a child… and toss it in the trash
Most sensible thing I've heard all day. No sense calling for blood. Semper fi.
I'm married to a retired Marine, Vietnam Vet, he sees nothing wrong here either.

1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men
it might now say GAY and HELL in the same verse… but the IDEA that GAYS go to HELL… is taught time and time again…
also… we are to be watchmen on the wall… warning people
Ezekiel 33:1-33 ESV
The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them, If I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and make him their watchman, and if he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows the trumpet and warns the people, then if anyone who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet and did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But if he had taken warning, he would have saved his life. …
"the IDEA that GAYS go to HELL… is taught time and time again"
The Bible also teaches (1 Cor 6:9) and (Gal 5:9-21) that those who
1. Sexually immoral
9. Selfish ambition
Will also go to hell but interestingly many Christians who believe that salvation is by faith alone completely ignore all of these other sins and only focus on homosexuality.
"if you want to enter life, keep the commandments"
13 Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:
14 Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.
15 If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts:
16 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate.
17 Or if I bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it:
18 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves.
19 Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast:
20 Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.

this is one of those things that makes me wish you could sue for 2 billion dollars

In order to receive that forgiveness , yu must become a follower of Jesus and be a DOER not just a hearer
here is the question – WHO will inherit the kingdom?????
Will homosexuals inherit the kingdom?
Will murderers inherit the kingdom
What did Jesus say
Not everybody is going to be with Him in heaven..so who is going to hell… once you nkow that– then make sure you are not one of those

I really want to know what happens with this

It is when you are under stress and facing hard times that your REAL you comes out.. anybody can act maintain a NICE face when things always go their way…
I hope her future husband gets to see this before the wedding… this is what he will have to deal with

I keep looking but can not find where it says Christian must not work on good friday
They should just follow Jesus's example and hang around.
You won't find it written down. Tradition calls for three hours of silence and heavy reflection on the agony of Jesus. (the 3 hours it took Him to die) What he did for each and every one of us. The pain He endured for our own sin. Can you imagine the pain of the 'due' suffering of every individual for all of their sins? All the people of the world- all of their sins - He bore it all and died an horrific death.....and WE get the benefits of his sacrifice. When we celebrate Easter--that is really celebration as WE can have the benefits of His Resurrection.

I “see” a person is Black, White, ETC… I do not judge based on that.
I “see” a person has blonde hair, red hair, black hair, etc…I do not judge based on that
I “see” a person as tall, short, etc..I do not judge based on that
I “See” how people act and judge based on that….
These demonstrators are judged to be rude and ignorant – with a lack of knowledge

It is not an anger issue… anger is not in and of itself a bad thing
it is a SELF CONTROL Issue..
I get mad/angry at my wife, kids, friends..I do not slam them in the throat…WHY – because I no right from wrong and can control myself
Isn't anger a good thing because usually it is triggered in an attempt to stand for justice? It may be misplaced sometimes. I don't know. I just know that I have little kids and when they are angry, it is always because of an injustice. And if a kid can know if they got shorthanded, certainly an adult can. But indeed, we need to control it.

I pulled into a parking lot a while back and as i parked i saw a rather large young man start walking toward my drivers side door.. I waited to open the door he stopped and walked back to the sidewalk.
I watched him in my side mirror.
I hopped out pretty quickly and saw him start to walk toward me again.. I turned and raised my shirt so he could see I was carrying a pistol, he turned and walked up the street away from me
LOL....yep, makes people reevaluate their intentions.......
I was driving down to San Francisco and had to make an 0200 pit stop at a Rest Area just North of the cutoff to the Bay.
Standing there at the urinal, when two big Hispanic dudes come in behind me and stop, one slightly to each side, but still a few feet back. Now, there were at least eight empty urinals in the place, so there was no reason for these clowns to stand there behind me.
As usual, John Browning's best design was riding under my left shoulder, in a horizontal shoulder rig and I was fully prepared to blow several holes in my old leather Flight Jacket. I reached up and "Snicked" the safety off and it was incredibly loud in that tile and concrete echo chamber.
The next sound I heard was two pair of feet scampering back out of that restroom. By the time I walked out, all there was to see was a Low-Rider Impala going balls-out out of the parking lot.
Used my cell to call the CHP and told them what had happened and gave them a description of the car. They caught these clowns about five miles down the freeway and one of them had a beat-up old .32 acp with three rounds in the magazine.
My only regret was that I never even got a look at those two, so all they could do was charge them for the pistol and a switchblade that the other guy had. Win some, lose some.

J-mo – I am betting you NEVER served. I did 21 years – It was a comfort to have a chaplain and when you are in a place far form home in a place that is bad/horrible/awful it is nice to have a chaplain around.
not sure why we should take a benefit away from the many because of a very small minority
Agreed, there were many fine Chaplains with whom I served during my 22 years. They certainly added value to the time we spent away from home.
Most service people do attend weekly services and use the Chaplain counseling service.
I served five years in the Navy (79-84). Never had a use for the Chaplains at all. The few interactions I had with them I would classify as “annoying” ..
"I served five years in the Navy (79-84). Never had a use for the Chaplains at all. The few interactions I had with them I would classify as “annoying”
So based on your limited exposure to chaplains about 30 years ago, you recommend getting rid of their valuable service that's an option (not a requirement) for the service men/women and dependents?

Did you read the part where he made it CLEAR to potential clients that he was a Christian and his counseling was based on that!!!!!
Premarital sex is a SIN!
Homosexuality is a SIN!
If you do not want christian counseling do not go to a Christian. They could have said they did not want Christian counseling and other arranges would have been made.
When I have questions about the Bible I do not call the local plumber and I never ask the local pastor to work on my electrical system!!!!
lets try a small dose of common sense
 March 11, 2015 at 2:34pm
Truth – if two TRUTH contradict then one is wrong!
If you describe your God one way and I describe mine another… one of us is wrong
God does not make junk?… God gave us free will… and we can choose to be junk…
all religions contain some truth –

DO NOT forsake the assembling together.

I am sure Jesus would not want people to not gather together..
