    Agreed, @Locked

    You absolutely should read more about the Anabaptist movement. Might I suggest, “The Anabaptist Story” by Ested. I would also recommend a book called, “Dissident Discipleship,” by Augsberger which looks at Anabaptist theology in a contemporary context. It’ll strengthen your Baptist beliefs and place them in their correct historical context.

    Wow. I’m a Baptist pastor and you could not be more wrong. You simply must do research on people like Chelčický, Karlstadt, and Muntzer. The book “Trail of Blood” that you mention is absolutely historical fiction. I’m proud to be a Baptist, but I can still believe in historical fact, and I wish that more people would do the same.

    Oh, I’m not Mormon. I’m actually a Southern Baptist minister. I was just wondering what the Blaze would quote a person whose views on Mormonism are openly antithetical to Mr. Beck’s, since he is a Mormon.

    By the way, Revelation was surely not the last book of the NT written. Revelation was written most likely during Nero’s persecution, which would date it far beyond a number of NT books. The NT isn’t written chronologically, of course. It is agreed among evangelical scholars that all of John’s other books (The Gospel of John, I John, II John, and III John) were all written AFTER the book of Revelation. Just thought you might want to look it up, especially if you are speaking to Mormon’s about the completion of the New Testament canon.

    And, by the way, I am part of the Anabaptist tradition, which explains my thoughts on war, which lines up much more closely with Rep. Paul.

    And I have no idea why the Blaze, with Glenn’s Mormonism so well known, would use Robert Jeffress to make any kind of point, considering the hurtful and hateful things he said about Mitt Romney and Mormonism in general.

    Sara Groves is Southern Baptist, as is Louie Giglio. Two of the names presented are Baptists, and there were undoubtedly more. So, what’s the problem?

    While a lot of people on the Blaze may not like this at all, it’s because President Obama can pull this type of rhetoric off that many think he is a shoo-in for re-election. The Republicans don’t have anyone who can speak this way. He was funny and accessible. Whether you agree with the message or not, far too many people who will vote will pull the level for him because of this. Governor Romney, Senator Santorum, or Speaker Gingrich are absolutely not able to this.

    Anyone here actually read the entire article? The author takes President Obama to task on the second page about all the ways that he hasn’t lived up to his rhetoric. Before completely dismissing this guy outright, it is probably good to actually read what he has to say and then make an argument for or against him.

  • February 10, 2012 at 4:16pm

    Actually, I think it was really nicely done. Like him or not, but the Republicans need to be able to produce stuff like this. Historically, they just haven’t been as good as it, and President Obama is the best campaigner we’ve seen in decades.

    58 percent of Catholics support Obama’s policy, according to http://publicreligion.org/research/2012/02/january-tracking-poll-2012/

    It has been shown that 98 percent of Catholics use birth control, regardless of what the Catholic leadership has said.

    This is not going to win the conservatives the election. It only fires up the people who were already voting against President Obama. Keep bringing up issues like this and Obama will be sure to win re-election.

    @CAPITALISMCZAR

    I do not think that I in any way justified what Dr. Hill said. I think both of them were out of line.

  • December 7, 2011 at 11:53am

    Hill’s comments were no more racist than O’Reilly’s comment about “Soul Train.” Another non-starter that obfuscates the real issues of this country. Let’s do better, Blaze.

    Nah, what he said was, in fact, Biblical. Luke 1:53, during Mary’s Magnificat, “He has filled the hungry with good things, but has sent the rich away empty.” Christmas is, indeed, a poor person’s holiday, and a reading of the entire Christmas story confirms this to be true. It is not blasphemy at all.

  • December 6, 2011 at 10:20am

    Actually, at our small group last night, we read the Magnificat, and what Rev. Jackson said is actually from Scripture. When Mary blesses the Lord upon telling Elizabeth the news that she is carrying the Messiah, she states, “He has filled the hungry with good things, but has sent the rich away empty.” This is part of the Christmas story and lends credence to what he was having to say.

  • December 5, 2011 at 10:41am

    While I don’t think he said it as elegantly as he could have, I think what he was trying to say is that there are those who commercialize Christmas. Non-Christians use the occasion of the holiday to cash in. I agree with the sentiments, but not how he said it.

    I prefer Linus’ explanation – “That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.” As for our family, we are not spending more than $25 on any one person in the family, including my 16-month-old daughter. In fact, every time we see Santa, I whisper in her ear, “Santa’s just pretend.” I don’t want her to grow up believing in Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, etc., and then find out five years later that they’re all fake – because I’ll be telling her that Jesus is real, and I don’t want her to lump Him up with the rest of those characters. We try hard to get Christmas right, and leave our focus on the Incarnation of the Messiah – NOT Santa, gift-giving, and all the hubbub that surrounds the holiday.

    I work with international students who come to school here in America, having studied English in their (mostly) public schools. That is how I have come to know what is being taught in different schools around the country.

    And why not be tolerant of people who desecrate the flag. If we are to be the standard bearers for freedom, then it extends to even the people we vehemently disagree with. What a nutcase does with a flag has absolutely no bearing on my patriotism, or probably yours for that matter. Being outraged over a person spitting on it elevates his behavior. Ignoring it when it happens minimizes it.

    Nice sarcasm. I made it clear that out of all of the Hong Kong students who have come to our college, every single one of them know the Pledge of Allegiance. This does not mean that all Hong Kong students know it, although I imagine most of them would, considering the diversity of HK students we receive.

    Also, I never said it was not possible to translate the American pledge into Spanish, but I did say that it is more beneficial to study, read, and even memorize language as it was originally written. If a person is going to learn Spanish, his or her understanding will be much greater by reading, say, Cervantes in the original language than to read a Spanish translation of Harry Potter. That’s simple language acquisition theory, and there is much research out there that proves that this is true.

  • October 17, 2011 at 9:47am

    All the Hong Kong kids know that American Pledge of Allegiance when they arrive. When even Chinese kids know it, something’s up.

    Haha – “They’re takin’ our jerbs!”
