No, I’m sure they werent. I know quite a few EMTs and when it gets late and we sit around talking, it gets real obvious how underappreciated they are. Normally it’s the ER staff that gets the credit. Now you want to give the credit to some teen and your Deity. The credit belongs to the people who are fist on scene at the crucial point and keep that person alive.

My faith is in the EMTs that have the training to deal with these situations. My faith is in the science that saves people.

And not a word about any medical staff who did something useful. Forget prayer, take an advanced first aid course.
Both action and prayer would be much better. Never forget prayer. Always have faith.
Immediate action was taken for this woman experiencing a medical emergency - heart attack, stroke, we don't know yet. 911 was called immediately and those near her provided emergency first aid. This young man stepped up to the podium and prayed for this woman, and asked everyone else there to pray for her as well. I am hoping that she survived. Whether through immediate first aid, through 911 EMT response, or through prayer - just maybe all three of these things may save this woman's life.
Of course call the EMT, and even provide first aid until the EMT or other medical personnel arrives. Some do not see the need for prayer because they do not believe in God and have put all their faith in man. Christians are not living for this world but for the world to come. Apostle Paul persecuted Christians until he was converted. I'm praying you will have an encounter with Jesus and be converted too.
There is no shame in believing in God and the need for a savior. Man's pride is often the highest hurdle to overcome. For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Think outside yourself and see the vastness of God and His creation.

Yes, because they have not yet expended all their vitriol or proved to the world how backward and hateful they really are. Big government bad,big religion good. Sharia evil, Christian theocracy good. Both are equally bad but you’ll never get them to admit it.
Well said. They despise big government when it intrudes on their liberties. Then vote for the guy that's going to impose their ideas of morality on everyone else, ya know, cause it's the right thing to do for society. They know better than those crazy lefties, god told them so after all. This whole country (Actual Libertarians excluded) has fallen into their roles as puppets on one side of the aisle or the other to be played against each other by their masters. Mindlessly bleating on and on about how their side loves the Constitution and the Bill of Rights more than the other, meanwhile the people orchestrating the puppet show go ahead with their agenda because we're busy fighting amongst ourselves about letting consenting adults decide how to run their own lives. Same goes for the drug war. The right loves to moan about out of control spending all the while throwing trillions at the complete and total failure that is the war on drugs. Again, society must be saved from itself and we are the ones to do it, they claim. Liberty be damned, I know how you should live your life and I'm going to force you to see it my way and we will all be better off for it, just wait and see. NO THANKS!
I think you summed it up pretty well...good post.
Well thanx for the enlightenment Real. I didn't know that because I never saw a man I wanted to screw or marry I was "backward.
All I have to say to gays who want to marry is have at it boys & girls.
Who knows, maybe you can build a society that holds ISIS at bay.

Of course, this will not sit well on The Blaze. It reinforces the fact that the people, especially the young, have moved beyond the old paradigm and are supporting freedom and equality. Such freedom is hated by the old because it diminishes their power and lessens their right to rule by outdated rules. Good!
I still think its funny that this is a place we can reliably count on to denounce Sharia Law, a repugnant system.
Yet they don't see the irony in saying 'laws should based on the Bible!'
A sad day for parents trying to raise their kids and keep them from the scumbags in society.
Yah, that's right.
So you take your libertarian point of view and I'll have my conservative real life perspective.
I'll keep my kid from the pot smokers and you smoke pot with your kid.
And we'll see who's kid makes it through life with integrity and honor.
I won't let my kid watch rated R movies.
You go ahead and let yours watch gay porn. Please.
And we will see who's kid turns out ok and functions in society without medication.
And please don't raise your kid with any morals at all or God forbid religious teaching, and sign
them up for every government program you can, make sure you celebrate every mayday and absolutely no Christmas,that's for those God fearing idiots. And I will raise mine with self reliance
and religion at the center. I will teach her the true meaning of the mayday celebration and we will pray before every meal. And we will see who's kid turns out ok.
So put your stupid snarky comments below. I really don't give a dam about your opinion.
And then let's see who's family
Ireland doesn’t know what they are in for. We already legalized it long ago and this is the end result:
Teaching homosexuality to 3rd graders and that gender is a “choice.”
Masturbation to 6th graders.
Anal sex to 7th graders.
8th grade – Children will be taught to keep a condom on their person in case there’s a chance “they will be having sex sometime soon”.
Guess who else has a lot to do with this curriculum? Planned Parenthood.
My advice is stop it now while you can. The fascist gay and transgendered activists come next and they will do their best to force their way into the education system.Once you give them too much rope it’s really hard to pull it back in. They’ll take all they can get then try and hang you with it if you dare disagree.
Nice bot accounts and up votes. No one knows how to forcefully push an agenda like fascist gays.
Just wait until they force their way into your school system and sexual education like they have in my country. Ireland you don’t know what you’re in for.
I don't hate freedom at all. Freedom is the ability of a group of people to regulate themselves through a fair and balanced system. If such a group of people deems marriage a union between a man and woman, then that nation is no more or less free.
In this scenario, a majority of a group decided to not view marriage that way anymore. While I personally don't agree with their choice, I'm glad to see that democracy was actually used and not trampled on by the courts.
it is viewed as just wonderful when a society as a whole embraces perversion. freedom to be a pervert was always available. also freedom to refuse to embrace perversion was also available. what we are seeing today is a segment of society telling those that understand that homosexuality is a perversion, that they must not only tolerate perversion, they must embrace it. homosexuality has been a perversion since the first man and woman walked the earth.
For some reason the link isn’t working. It was yesterday. You can still get to it though. Just go to the site here and click on Sex Ed at the bar on the top of the page.

Wait until Ireland falls prey to the degradation of moral values, and the collapse of their society. Homosexuality is nothing new, and no nation on earth that grasps it prospers. Satan's little minions are at work all over the world, and it moves us one step closer to the end. These people think they've won a victory, but they actually voted for their own demise.
 May 22, 2015 at 10:16am
But you have no problem recruiting with your Great Commission. I find the presence of Evangelicals (note, not all Christians) insulting. Live your own damn lives and leave the freedom to the rest of us.
[-2] May 22, 2015 at 10:10am
BHarris. So you’d rather brainwash them with Christian dogma? Sorry, that doesn’t work either. How about we keep education, both school and homeschool, neutral and let the kids make up their own minds.
 May 21, 2015 at 9:34am
Lovely thought, but it will never happen as long as the parties are in charge. If you don’t have money, rich friends, and the ability to make more money for the party, they will never let you near any nomination above that of dog catcher. Joe Average is locked out of politics until we break both the parties and the link between corporations and the parties.
How about you not getting involved with an issue between a parent and their child? Any abuse? No? Who the hell are you to tell others how to parent. Stay out if it. Learn your place like your daddy should've taught you.
Yes, parents giving up control always leads to better outcomes. Not.
You want kids to have the choice of gender regardless how it was put when they're born? Okay, how do you feel about the general public having a choice of not having health insurance and not be taxed (penalized) for it?
 May 19, 2015 at 11:19am
Who cares what the AFA thinks? No brains in that group of control freak anyway. Individual freedom is more important than what some people think is ‘icky’.
I nominate RealLibertarian for the position of militant atheist prog troll.
Who seconds the motion?
which of course implies that by having faith the rest of us are incapable of thinking for ourselves?
that sounds like another little lie that's being pushed to be the truth.
oooooo......you think for yourself.....who are you again? Tell me why anyone should listen to people like you (even if it's themselves) over theologians, historians, and frankly, amazing men and women in our history?
"I think for myself"......translation: "You're not the boss of me!!!" (sticks tongue out like 3 year old)
"I think for myself".....translation: "I don't listen to reason, I follow whatever I THINK"
"I think for myself"......translation: "I went to college for 2 years and am smarter than you."
jb....the irony is that a huge slew of these recent college grads of the last few years are so heavily indoctrinated to prog thinking that they all speak and think exactly the same way. They're stepford wives.

I’ll agree that she should not be able to sue. Beyond that, no. As long as the chord is attached it’s the mother’s choice. Once it is born that changes.
[-17] May 13, 2015 at 9:16pm
Not murder by decision of the USSC. And that counts where your bible doesn’t.

@Real - So Gosnell was wrongly convicted?
Many things that have been or are legal does not make a horrid thing noble, moral, nor correct. You are gravely mistaken but I sure will pray for you.
SCOTUS at one time decided that slavery was okay, that women didn't deserve the right to vote, that Prohibition was okay, Jim Crow laws, etc., etc., etc.
"Murder is everyones business."
So true, @Starsfield. Crime is a community offense so the penalty is served to assuage the community. Sin is a spiritual offense and against both God and His people.
No more than Freddie Gray or Michael Brown are any of "anybody's" business. Murder is murder. We, as a culture or society, have a responsibility to advocate and protect those who cannot protect and advocate for themselves.
Unless you're going to be for the liberty of all humans, not just ones who had the good fortune to not be murdered by their mothers and actually passed through a cervix, I don't think you have the right to call yourself a Libertarian. Your liberty ends where your unborn child's nose begins.
[-22] May 13, 2015 at 9:08pm
No pretending at all. Abortion on demand is the right and freedom of the woman an not the business of the government on any level.
"No pretending at all. Abortion on demand is the right and freedom of the woman an not the business of the government on any level."
If a woman can do anything to her baby she wants then anyone can do anything they want to their animals too.
If Michael Vick wants to have dog fights and torture his dogs to death, that is his business, if we follow your philosophy with any consistency.
Also if it's only the womans business and no one elses then it's also her problem and no one elses. no suing the 'father' to force him to pay for raising any child she decides not to murder.
I'll agree that she should not be able to sue. Beyond that, no. As long as the chord is attached it's the mother's choice. Once it is born that changes.
Simply because the cord is attached or not does not make the child any less human. Murder is murder.
"I’ll agree that she should not be able to sue. Beyond that, no. As long as the chord is attached it’s the mother’s choice. Once it is born that changes."
You did not respond to the rest of my response to you.
@FakeLiibertarian - So you are advocating that doctors quit cutting umbilical cords?
That "right and freedom" was granted by the government and you didn't't mind the government getting involved then.
Either you believe a woman has a right to kill the person/life which grows within her or you believe that that which grows within her is not a person, life or both. The first is reprehensible the second is misguided. The first violates a guarantee enumerated in our founding documents i.e. the declaration of independence. The second is a logical fallacy which has ensnared your reason and injured your imagination. There are four simple reasons that the "clump of cells" growing within a pregnant woman qualifies as a person or I should say do not disqualify it. These reasons or aspects are as follows: size, level of development, environment, and degree of dependency. These are the only differences between you and an embryo and further exploration into each of these factors reveals the inadequacies of the arguments aimed at refuting the personhood of an embryo, fetus, and/or unborn. Here is an article discussing those factors quite poignantly.
So pregnant women are not responsible to their unborn babies? They can drink all they want as long as the baby is still within them? Abuse drugs? Eat as many doughnuts as they want, etc? Punching a pregnant woman in the stomach that results in a miscarriage is also simple assault not murder? How about the woman selling her unborn child for medical experiments or sex slavery or cannibalism? Is that okay too?
So right after delivery and before the cord is cut, you would be ok with her smashing the baby's head? After all it's still attached to her. You see how stupid that is? Once a fetus is able to live on it's own outside of the mother, it is a living person.
The mouth piece for the devil grunts out a response. Drivel, drivel, drivel....

Typical whine of big government statists who want to control people’s lives and restrict freedom.
Does it take 20 (Twenty) weeks for one of today's brilliant women to figure out they were raped , and pregnant because of it? Today's women are supposed to be the smartest ever . Must be that changey that mind thingy, women have claimed.
You have the freedom to use multiple forms of female birth control, use condoms, not have sex, or give the child up for adoption. We don't have the freedom to kill for convenience.
 May 12, 2015 at 10:46pm
Because the so called ‘progressive churches’ do not harangue their congregations to avoid learning and free thought. The more you know, the more you look at the world around you, and the more you think for yourself, the less you need religion. The evangelical churches avoid science, learning and free thought and brainwash their kids to think the same. Their whole idea is to keep the next generation from thinking independently and thus prevent defections.
 May 11, 2015 at 11:27am
This is why religion, ALL religion, needs to be kept away from law and government. Yours, mine, and everybody else’s. As soon as you make accommodation for one, the others wii demand it. I refuse to live under sharia, just as I refuse to live by Christian rules.
