It appears that NASCAR has not figured out that the bulk of their fans are real Americans who have a strong independent streak in them and do not like to be told what to do. All NASCAR did was to bring out more Confederate Flags. What is next is to break out the flag of the Confederated States of America.
What kind of argument is that? So why then don't you skip Europe and go back to east central Africa?

I am a Russian Orthodox and all Orthodox believe that she was capable to commit sin like all people, but was kept pure. Different then the Roman Catholic Dogma.

This mosaic is from the time of the Edict of Milan when Constantine the Great legalized Christianity. This was still the Roman Empire.The Byzantine Empire came about after the collapse of the western Roman Empire which was in the late 5th Century. This also shows that Christians have been venerating the Theotokos (Mother of God) for centuries following the resurrection of our LORD.
Actually, there was never anything known as the “Byzantine Empire.” That term came along LONG after 1453. To them, as always, it was simply the Roman Empire and they called themselves Romans. And it sure does show that about the Theotokos - and the amazing work St. Helen did!
Martin Luther believed and taught that Mary was created just like Eve (without sin) and that Mary remained a virgin her entire life.
Prior to Martin Luther's break from the church in the 17th century there was only ONE church which means both before and after Martin Luther's break from the church the church affirmed the immaculate conception of Mary.
The idea that Mary was not created like Eve without sin is fairly recent/modern invention.
It's actually quite sad that Islam gives higher respect to the Mother of our Lord than many Christians in the West do.
My mistake Ray, good catch.
Pat: Quite true. I personally find saying Byzantine helps draw a clearly line when discussing things post-fall Rome. It comes out of my preference for where their architecture in relation to classical Roman. Similar but better in my book.
Snoope, I'm rusting on my Greek Orthodox. What's there stance on Mary?
Just a point of clarification: Eve was created without sin. Mary was born without sin. God Bless you.

That was a rabid animal, not a human and should be treated as such. Sickening.

He just gave a new meaning to the expression “Break a leg.” Dave is a real trouper.

Either you are with Christ 100% or not with Him at all. There is no in-between, no part belief. From reading from the comments in the article shows how lukewarm the Church has become. Christ told the church in Laodiceans about being lukewarm and that he will spew them out of His mouth. During His ministry on Earth, demons trembled in fear of Him knowing that He is the Son of God. Demons are real. Ask any Protestant pastor or Catholic and Orthodox priest who has performed exorcism. They will tell you that demons are real.
Sadly, demons believe in Christ more than many Christians do. "You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder." James 2:19

My take is this. “In the beginning there was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1. Allah is not God, because Islam denies Jesus as the Son of God. Therefore Gretchen is correct.

ModerateRepublican, besides the fact it was pointed out that 1%ers do pack, they are not in an “outlaw biker social club”, biker gangs are family. You step on one and the rest will crush you.

So what if SNL stole the skit. The Canadian one is lame and SNL made vast improvements on it and is far more funnier. Nothing came funny came out of Canada since the SCTV alumni that included John Candy, RIP.

Give a standing ovation for Mr. Williams! Great job in ridding society of vermin. There is one less thug in the world now. Watching the video shows that Mr Williams was properly trained in the use of a firearm and shown great constraint. For you libs and race-baiters, thugs do not define a race but an action.
The desperately sad element in this story is the death of the young lady that the thug's SUV hit while speeding to the hospital.

My physics teacher was a Marine that fought as an Infantryman during WWII and believe me that class was a very quiet and great learning experience after one kid who was from the wrong side of the track mouth off to him. .

How is telling the truth about Islam an insult? While we are at it, I mentioned this before and will say it again. The Crusades were a response to the murder and harassment of Christian pilgrims to the Holy Lands. Islam has a history of spreading by the sword. Today is no different from the Muslim side. The only difference is that the West is weak and will allow Islam to eventually rule.
The sacking of Constaninople was to protect Pilgrims?!? To hell with painting a picture of a complex historical concept with a broad brush; you decided to use a roller! But tell me, professor, how did the Roman Empire spread, if not by the sword. I must have missed something in my reading.
