    I just threw up in my brain.

    “The world’s changing, and we want to stay relevant as a church”… pastor say what?

    @cafe

    I’m the first in line to hold my own accountable (mormons, conservatives, etc.) – but there is a difference between demeaning the beliefs of others and defending one’s own beliefs.

    Of course, I haven’t looked at every post here, but from what I see, no “Mormons” are going after any other single religion, but are only playing defense.

    BTW – feel free to go to any Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ building this Sunday, and you will not hear a single other religion ever mentioned. That’s because we truly only preach of what we believe, we don’t bash other religions.

    Romney/Rand Paul 2016!

    Now watch the heads explode.

    “Mormons HATE the Cross of Jesus Christ, our only means of Salvation.”

    Are you seriously implying that it is the Cross, not Jesus Christ that saves us? Take a look at any temple or church building and you’ll see countless paintings and other celebrations of Jesus Christ.

    Thanks for your post, Chuck!

    @imperative

    There is a huge difference between disagreement and “hating” – take a look at some of the averments about mormons here and you’ll see the difference.

  • [10] October 13, 2014 at 11:00am

    Rather than demean what others believe (as the anti-mormons are doing here), I’ll simply tell you what I believe.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is 100% true. The people, myself included, are not perfect – but the doctrine is.

    Joseph Smith was a living Prophet called by God, just as Moses, Abraham, and others were. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God.

    The Book of Mormon is truly another testament of Jesus Christ. The teachings found therein have made me a better husband, father, and follower of Jesus Christ.

    I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior.

    I know that God continues to speak to His children through a living prophet.

    I know that I am a child of God.

    I know that families can be together forever, through Heavenly Father’s plan.

    I know that the closer we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, the happier we are.

    I know that I can pray to my Heavenly Father and he will hear and answer me.

    How do I know all this? By the promptings of the Holy Ghost after much study and prayer.

    Now… to rapture and the others, PLEASE feel free to tell us what YOU believe, but PLEASE refrain from trying to tell us what WE believe. It is clear you disagree, but your spewing of venom will only create contention.

    Semper Fi brother.

    @josh

    Yes, I’m an attorney. I just finished up several years as a prosecutor.

    Ha – yes, I have to agree that many attorneys are incompetent… I always hope that the guy I’m up against is one of them! :)

  • [36] October 9, 2014 at 4:24pm

    I think we all agree that this guy is a wolf among sheep.

    However, my question to the Baptists here who believe in “once saved, always saved” – why do you care what he did – even if he’s a “pastor”?

    Who cares if he committed adultery, fornicated in the church building, stole congregant’s tithing, was doing illegal drugs, and knowingly likely gave a fatal disease to the women he slept with – what does it matter since he’s saved no matter what he does since he’s “accepted Christ as his Savior”?? right?

    People like this show the ignorance in such a belief that our works do not matter as to whom Christ will grant his gift of salvation.

    Now… rather than getting angry at me for asking the simple question, answer the question.

    Actually, if that’s what he is, then only the L’s and the B’s would like him.

    @Advection

    I’ve had plenty of cases where private citizens provided their secretly recorded audio of a defendant confessing to doing something during private conversations. As for the doctor/patient relationships, again, there is no privilege when one speaks in the presence of a third party.

    @makingout

    “In the newly surfaced audio, said to have been secretly recorded during a 2012 therapy session…”

    Is this wrong?

    @Keltictim

    Thank you for your thoughtful answer!

  • [18] October 8, 2014 at 11:16am

    Negative votes for this comment???

    I don’t get it, I’m simply exemplifying that Christ’s role as Savior does not depend on the length of His hair… and also pointing out that those who’s beliefs are swayed by dinner plates need to look a littler deeper.

    @Hoghunter42

    You ask a great question. Yes, an officer can order anyone out (or even back in) to a vehicle as they wish for officer safety reasons. However, your question of whether or not everyone has to provide ID is more of a case by case question. I don’t know of any case law that requires ID to be carried by everyone all the time… but we would then turn to statutory law – so the answer could vary state by state (even city by city).

    @usfreeman

    I guess I see common law (case law) a little differently than you do. I see it as clarifying statutory law, rather than complicating it. Of course, in every case, both sides find case law that supports their position. It’s then the job of the judge to decide which side’s arguments are most on point.

    @lordjosh

    Again, you are accidentally taking the “Terry Stop” standard again. A terry stop deals with officers taking someone off the street and detaining them (not arresting) for further questioning. In order for a Terry Stop to occur, there must be reasonable suspicion that a crime has been or is being committed by that person. Then, of course, before moving beyond a temporary detention to a full out arrest, the officer must have probable cause – which is a higher standard than reasonable suspicion.

    The vehicle exception to the 4th Amendment warrant requirement lowers the standards when people are in a vehicle. The courts have explained that this is so because of the mobile nature of vehicles – as well as the highly regulated nature of driving – making the expectation of privacy less.

    In the case I cited, they explain how a majority of police murders occur during traffic stops. For this and other enumerated reasons, the Supreme Court has ruled that a police officer may order anyone out of the vehicle for any reason in order to ensure officer safety… even if no one is suspected of committing a crime.

    BTW – you don’t have to have a driver’s license – but if you drive without one, you’re going to be arrested.

    @Uechi

    Why is case law not constitutional? The US Constitution itself delegates to the judicial branch the duty to interpret the law… since the US Constitution is the supreme law of the land, the judicial branch is there to interpret it.

    People… it’s a dinner plate… made 300-400 years after Christ lived on earth…

    Again, it’s a dinner plate… and BTW – who cares what length His hair was? I’m sure it was short before it was long.

    Not sure why skunkbear got so many negative votes… is a fair question… which version of the Bible is perfect? There are literally hundreds – and they all don’t say the same thing – otherwise they wouldn’t be different versions, they would be copies.

    Now don’t get me wrong – I believe the Bible to be the Word of God — as far as it is translated correctly.
