    I think we absolutely must be willing to use nuclear weapons if we believe it is necessary. And, in fact, that is exactly our history. We used them on Japan because we deemed it necessary.

    Also, for those aghast at us targeting humans with nukes, are you just as aghast using conventional weapons? They are just as dead. Any mystique is an illusion.

    I think there is a place now for limited battlefield tactical nuclear weapons if we deemed it in our national interest. I do not see a need in the foreseeable future to initiate a first strike on a sovereign state., although that could obviously change. We would be absolute fools to take nuclear weapons off the table. Actually, we would be liars because as soon as we deemed it necessary to,use them, we would,

    Statistics don’t bear out what he claims. He believes the lie and is perpetrating the myth.

    Read the email quoted in the story. She was terminated on “the very day her latest contract expired”. She wasn’t fired. They didn’t renew her contract. Big difference.

    How about the reporter in the NBC piece who ends his report with “The judge ordered him to be taken into custody where he will be held indefinitely…..until his next court appearance.”

    I am a Cruz guy. I like Rubio but I just can’t get past the gang of 8.

    I was flipping around the radio dial about a month ago and ran across a black talk radio show. I ended up listening for a while. It was actually pretty shocking as it was very clear that they were anticipating a race war this summer. It was two older guys talking about how they wouldn’t be surprised if some young guys finally had a enough and started shooting. All very matter of fact. It dove tails with the rise of black lives matter movement and the recent push on white privilege.

    Among other things, I would ask Glenn and other influential leaders to engage the black churches now.

    Try listening to black talk radio and see if you conclude something different.

    I will say up front that I am a Cruz guy. For all those supporting Trump, I am interested in understanding who you are. Do you consider yourself a conservative? Libertarian? Seriously, I am not trying to pick a fight. What does Trump have that Cruz doesn’t? Or vice versa.

    I think Trump has been great for the debate by rendering the MSM powerless. However, I think it is clear that Trump is a progressive. That is why I am behind Cruz.

    Completely out of context. Levitical law had a particular purpose in a specific time and place. The Hebrews had just entered the promised land that was populated by tribes practicing all manner of perversions. The Levitical law was meant to protect them from moral contamination as well as demonstrate Gods holiness and judgement.

    Fast forward and we see Jesus Christ come into the world and fulfill the law and create a new covenant. Christians are not under Levitical law. We are still called to holiness consistent with Mosaic law but it is not the basis of salvation. The basis of salvation is the person and work of Jesus Christ. It is a free gift. He lived a perfect life (completing the law) and paid the sin debt we cannot pay. We obey now because we love God, not because we need to earn anything. Jesus earned it for us.

    Geez. There is more to conceal carry than buying a gun and putting it in your pocket.

    I like most of those. I think the illegal immigration problem is fixed by getting an everify that works and enforcing the law. That, and refusing services to illegals. Then the problem solves it self. If someone here illegally wants to be in a temporary workers program, they should go home first. (although I am willing to consider alternatives to that last point to address issues of practicality). If they don’t leave, deport. You don’t have to deport them all. You just have to show you are serious.

    Enforce the employment laws. If a company hires an illegal, they are out of business. Jobs will dry up and illegals will leave. They are here for the jobs.

    Like many others, I am overwhelmed by the sense that Charleston is a turning point. It isn’t about Glenn (I think he would agree). It is much bigger than that. It feels like people have been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting to act in some way to make a difference. That way is now defined as joining together in love and unity. This will accelerate now. 8/28 NeverAgainisNow

    I am East Coaster that started watching it because is was being slammed by the Left as a show with a “Conservative bent”. I appreciate the Texans here pointing out the inaccuracies and have taken up reading the true history. I am not much of a critic of acting but I have enjoyed the mini-series.

    It’s a trick question. It implies that the only ones who can promote family values are those that are perfect. Yet no one is perfect so no one can promote family values.

    This isn’t a case of people preaching something they don’t believe. It is a case of imperfect people imperfectly living what they believe. The former is hypocrisy. The latte is just reality.

    This is the first time I can remember someone getting it exactly right. These two guys are gay and have been in a relationship for years. I really couldn’t care less what they do. That is their business. But they recognize that society rests on building blocks that are important and can’t be changed without consequence. They don’t try to redefine reality to fit their preferences. In other words, they are rational. Kudos.

    For much of the 19th century, church services were held each Sunday in the House of Representatives with the Marine Band providing worship music. Back then, no one suggested or agreed that Satanists should be able to have services there. Why? Because they still had COMMON SENSE.

    I don’t mean for this to sound critical but it seems to me that what this pastor discovered is a very basic concept in Christianity and should have been covered in seminary. Having said that, it is easy for anyone to slip into legalism and his comments about sinning less indicate to me that is what happened. Fortunately, his time spent studying the bible led him to (re)discover grace.

    What a strange claim to make. The evidence actually demonstrates the exact opposite as even liberal scholars acknowledge his existence if not the miracles and resurrection.

    This is classic. He makes himself out to be the victim. A few years ago we left his mentor’s church in MD. Same deal there. CJ Mahaney was outed as abusive, manipulative, liar, etc. At the first members meeting to discuss, he shows up with security as if to say that the people he abused are the perps and he is the victim. Pathetic. Sociopath.
