    But simply having faith is not enough James 2:14-26. In order for one to be reborn they must be baptized. It’s an act of faith that puts us into Christ, it buries us with Him so that when we come up out of the watery grave we have been raised from the dead into life. Romans 6:1-11 and 1 Peter 3:21. Simply believing is not enough as was said that demons believe and tremble, yet they are not saved. The command to be baptized was not a manmade command it was instructed by the Lord when He said one must be born again of water and in Mark 16:15-16. Let me be clear though, it’s not the water that saves, it’s the act of obedience that does. If you need further proof then I recommend reading Hebrews 11 and see faith in action.

    One has a right to life and as Christians we are commanded to help those who are in need. Cakes are not needs.

    If I say I don’t cater to gay weddings then that means I don’t do gay weddings at all. I think that’s pretty uniform there. Better yet, I’m a photographer. I don’t do risque photos. I do portraits of people fully clothed. I refuse to do boudoir but if someone came up to me saying just because I provide portraits of people I’m forced to do these other kinds shots I’d look at them funny and send them on their way to someone who actually does that kind of stuff. It goes against my conscientious. Same thing if someone came to the photo shoot dressed in “god hates gays” apparel or wore a shirt with Hitler on the front of it, I’d turn them away because those ideas are not something I want to put my name on.

    Sorry but that does not compute. It’s like telling someone to make an airplane but you don’t need to know where the materials come from. In order to have an organism evolve you first need a living organism. Abiogenesis is the Achilles heel of the evolutionary world so how do they get around it? By saying it has nothing to do with evolution and call anyone who disagrees an idiot who knows nothing about science. Problem solved, right? Sorry, but call me an idiot all you like, you can’t separate abiogenesis and evolution. Because when the two are put together the whole idea of evolution crumbles.

    So the most popular argument I often read for the gay marriage debate is that a cake baker should make a cake regardless and that making that cake for the ceremony doesn’t mean you’re participating in it, right? Ok then maybe someone can answer me this, why do atheists get angry when a government official says a prayer in a public meeting? The same line of reasoning is that you’re not actually participating in the prayer, I mean a person can stand there with their eyes open and be quiet for a minute can’t they?

    The arguments just don’t make sense. You’re not participating if you bake a cake but you are participating if someone says a prayer. Kinda backwards ain’t it? I would think actually doing work would mean you’re participating and helping out that particular cause whereas standing aside and allowing someone else to pray doesn’t exactly mean you condone it.

    As for the hospital scenario, it’s like comparing apples to motor oil. A cake is not a right (although the French may disagree jk) nor is it a life and death situation. If a doctor was discriminating against a gay person and refusing them life saving care then I’d be right there with you. However, forcing people to bake cakes for whatever reason is not right nor is it A right.

    Zappa, I don’t think any true and honest Christian wants to see gays come to harm. I would be right there with you if a doctor said he would not treat a patient just because he was gay. However, a cake is not a life or death situation. One does not need a cake to survive. Sure, feelings may get hurt but people get their feelings hurt all the time from different individuals in all sorts of situations. Thus if someone sued based upon getting their feelings hurt then everybody would have a right to sue, well, everybody and it would be ridiculous. I just hope more people will come to understand that these issues are about forcing someone to go against their deeply held beliefs and punishing those who will not comply.

    Actually they could win if they were brought to court. See, the whole separation of church thing is a recently created idea based upon letters and not the constitution. We all know this. However, what most will not admit is sitting on public land as we speak, the Liberty Bell. It has inscribed on it a verse from the Bible. It was ordered by the city of Philadelphia. Now if the original claim was that we were supposed to be a secular nation then our government would have said, “Nope! Separation of church and state! That sucker needs to come down!”

    Even George Washington overstepped his boundaries by issuing a Thanksgiving day proclamation in which He invoked the Christian God. Why wasn’t he called out? Why did they have prayers before their meetings? None of this at all screams “separation of church and state” but that those in government positions are people too and have just as much right as anyone else to freely practice their religion. We need to start fighting back and letting them know that our Founding Fathers freely practiced their religion both in their private lives and as government officials. We need to stop bowing out just because someone is offended. For instance, I don’t celebrate the Chinese New Year but I don’t go out of my way to stop someone who wants to do so in public. I’m not offended in the least that I’m excluded, because I don’t participate in it!

    Um, sorry blink but just because it’s deemed historical doesn’t mean anything according to those who want separation of church and state. There’s been WW1 crosses taken down and other such historical emblems taken down by people who were offended by it being there. You can’t claim historical significance for the Liberty Bell while stating our Founding Fathers wanted “separation of church and state.” If that was the intention then they never would have commissioned the bell to be made with a Bible verse on it. One cannot claim that our Fathers wanted this nation to be a secular nation and then go about taking down Bible verses or nativity scenes and leave the Liberty Bell alone. Either our Fathers intended that we were able to worship in public (and even say prayers at government meetings) or they were confused (or stupid) in implementing a secular nation. So either the bell needs to come down and our constitution rewritten or it stays up and everything else that has been taken down gets to go back up like our Founding Fathers intended, a country in which we are able to freely practice a religion despite someone being offended.

    “And you always forget in spite of having it explained to you that courts have consistently ruled the church and state separation law does exist and as such that means you do not get to put up religious displays on public land.”

    So when are you going to petition the government to take down the Liberty Bell? After all, it does have a Biblical verse on it so by your standards it’s religious and therefore violates the imaginary “separation of church and state” ruling.

    Wow, we went from the greatest generation that were not afraid to make fun of Hitler to the wimpiest who are afraid of their own shadow. How quickly things deteriorate. Will anyone have the guts to stand up to these tyrants?

    I think the artist is amazingly talented, I just didn’t see the scoop section. Thank you! I was only hoping someone would put CAP on the national spotlight for once because it’s a worthy organization and not very many people know what it is or it’s history.

    Just curious Blaze… Is anyone going to do a story on something that’s worthwhile, say on the Civil Air Patrol receiving the congressional gold medal? I think the readers here might enjoy reading about civilians who sacrificed their time (and some their lives) to keeping America’s shores safe during WWII.

    Why do I get the vision of a little black baby throwing it’s bottle?

    Some people have been wanting a race war for some time now, I fear with people like this stirring the pot they may just get their wish.

    Without musical instruments, yes. If you look and listen carefully that IS their voices creating those noises. I’d suggest listening to some of their other songs as this is an amazingly talented group! My favorite is a collaboration they did with Todrick Hall called Wizard of Ahhhs. It’s a mix of different songs all done a cappella. You can check it out here: The Wizard of Ahhhs by Todrick Hall: http://youtu.be/QkVeKb2igrg

    It’s interesting that people like this have a problem with religion in public situations and immediately call for separation between church and state, yet I wonder how many cast their votes today in a church building?

    “A lot of times, what happened in this situation, you have a carrier who felt overwhelmed with the volume of mail so they decided to discard some of the mail without delivering,” Rukes said.

    Um, this coming from a guy in Chicago? Yeah right, I didn’t eat stupid flakes this morning!

    As a conservative I’m brainwashed only to believe in the facts but then that’s not really brainwashing at all, it’s called thinking for yourself. There’s plenty out there that parrot anything this administration says right down to the very last word. Facts are a conservative thing, they wouldn’t understand. Propaganda is clearly a liberal thing and we definitely understand that too.

    In reply to the contribution We Conservatives Love Propaganda. Or Do We?

    tlgeer, So answer me this why do we still have private and public sectors? Private being businesses such as the Hitching Post, sure they may offer services to the public but they are still considered private. Public is pretty much government entities that are by and for the people. So another question I would pose is why are people treating private businesses as public? Just because a private business operates for the public does not mean they have to provide a service for everyone.

    I think it’s odd that this display is taken from Isaiah 14. It shows that these Satanists know nothing. Lucifer is not the name for the devil here. If read in it’s context the chapter reveals key verses in understanding who this Lucifer person was. Yes I said person. Look at 14:4 it says that they will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon. It’s a king. Verses 10 and 11 show the other kings mocking him that he is no more than they are. 16 says, “Is this the man…” Satan isn’t a man. 20 “will not be joined with them in burial” again Satan is an immortal being and cannot die. 21 “his children” as far as I’m aware Satan can’t breed (think of the chaos if he could).

    The fact of the matter is to read all of it and read it in context. In fact read the chapter before it. Why would the subject go from a proclamation against Babylon to Satan to Babylon and Assyria and Philistia being destroyed? The subject matter doesn’t follow if taking the view that Lucifer is the devil in this case.

    Congratulations to her and the babies! Ya know out of all the chaos happening right now it does well for the soul to hear some good news every now and again.
