Islam in-and-of itself has NOTHING to do with peace.
Let’s start with the name itself. Islam means ‘To Submit’, as in be dominated.
Second, it is fallibly referred to as the ‘religion of peace’ FAR too often. Do you know why this is? Is it truly a religion of peace? No.
Islam is referred to as the ‘religion of peace’ because a Muslim cleric in the early 20th century declared that once Islam has conquered all corners of the earth, then and only then, will there be peace. Sounds peaceful right? Has Islam been anything other than a violent excuse to rape, conquer, pillage and enslave since it was founded in the 7th century? Nope. Islam is the problem. Not extremists, ISLAM. According to simple and basic Islamic teachings from all sects, you cannot be a good muslim if you are anything but a muslim first. You are allowed to lie, cheat and even murder as long as it leads to the progress of the global caliphate. Ahhhh. So peaceful.
Islam means in Arabic: Peace & Submission to God and God Alone.
Not to any human or any Muslim ruler or anybody.
It has nothing to do with dominating, etc… Just Peaceful Submission to God and God alone.
There are 100 Million Muslims in China, largest Muslim populous country, Indonesia never had Muslim ruler, and in the USA & Europe Islam is the fastest growing religion.
Do you think the MILLIONS of Black-Muslims in America were forced or were “dominated” to become Muslim? Do you think ANYBODY could force Malcom X to become Muslim? Or the nation’s once best boxer, Mohammad Ali???
The reason they became Muslim is the doctrine & concept of God: One God, Upon Whom all depend, Who is nobodies child, Who has no children, Whom nothing can compare unto.
Worship in Islam belongs to God and God alone, not any white-man or Indian-man or Chinese-man, etc…
One God, Many Messengers, Same Message.
This is why it is the fastest growing religion in America and Europe.

IBM as well, among many many more US corporations, most with leftist ties, made the massacre of jews more efficient and cost effective. Almost like they’ve been in the business of genocide for a while. They do it here in America too.. in the open no less. We just call it abortion and gay marriage. OH, and now they control who gets healthcare and who doesn’t. Almost like they are a culture of death… Hitler, Mao, Stalin… would be in awe of America’s death factory. TBH, if I were a terrorist I would just support democrats every election. They will do more damage and kill more Americans than any car bomb or planes flying into buildings will ever do.

This isn’t real. We ALL know that a real white cop would have immediately pulled his weapon and shot the black man. C’mon TheBlaze, where’s the honest journalism?

Ah, Glenn Beck and Co. ensuring yet another Democrat victory. Much like they tore down Mitt Romney at every chance BEFORE he became the nominee, and even still doing so to an inappropriate extent after, he has convinced enough people to NOT vote republican when Trump wins the nomination.
Beck caused enough conservatives and independents to stay home in 2012 that it cost us what could be any hope of a future we had as a nation as we knew it. He has tripled down on this idiocy, even saying he would stay home himself if Trump is the nominee. Well done Glenn. Now all your promises of the economy collapsing and violence coming to a home near you will come true with Hillary in the White House. I hope it was worth it you Cruz zealot.
Beck does not have that much power. I would feel the same if I never heard of Beck. Why is it so difficult for Trumpsters to believe conservatives like Cruz on his own merits. I would vote for the most conservative candidate no matter who it is. I see no purpose in voting for a progressive just to play party politics.
spot on...beck is vested in a hillary win...he know cruz cant beat her...his principles get us 8 more years of this.

I would not have needed a gun. I would have torn him apart with my bare hands had I found him in my daughters bedroom. I would have ripped his throat out for starters.

235 Million vs. 38 Million.
Bring it on. I’ll take those odds.

Yes, buy gold now and don’t forget to enter “GLENN” in the box.
And when gold prices tumble AGAIN, which they will, to half of what they are today just imagine Glenn sitting in front of a pie while he cries and all of the gold-brokers are buying all your gold back… because you are fools.
So would that be "fools gold" then? I made quite a haul off of my gold. But then, I don't just sit here and make uneducated comments and post them. I actually do the work necessary to make it happen. Just like anything of value, you need to keep an eye on it. I will now rename you and your type as "fools without gold".

If she does not get indicted then every American arrested for ANY crime up to and including murder can use her example that no amount of evidence, no matter how credible is sufficient to convict.

We all know that Frank Marshall Davis, Jr. never tells a lie or says one thing while doing the other.

I can’t stand this hypocrite. She made her living OFF OF GOVERNMENT WELFARE!!! She had the gall to believe that she was on the level of James Madison and Thomas Jefferson when she tried to write the Declaration of Independence 2.0.
She’s so bad for the GOP. No wonder so many people hate conservatives.
Just like ‘The Item’ they released pictures of, this is just a clever use of semantics for public consumption to give the illusion that they are conforming to trending public opinion… It’s sad that they do this tbh. God and his laws are eternal and there is no wavering, even in the face of public opinion.
I don't think this in any way has to do with trying to conform with public opinion. As noted above, Councils of the Church have always included women. However, there has never been an official calling for this participation in these specific councils. Now there is.
there were a lot of LDS who were not even aware of the stone in a hat trick

Jesus didn’t have a vision for any church. He enlightened us on fundamental principles that lead to love, charity and happiness for all.

Slander is one thing, hypocrisy is another.

Subway guy goes to prison for sex with minors.. LDS church praises men who did the same as prophets.
It’s already happened. It approves of abortion in rape and incest. They have already shocked me on their acceptance of homosexuals… while simultaneously condemning it as among the worst possible sins next to murder. Gotta luv that hypocrisy. God is either God, or he isn’t, homosexuality is either a sin, or it isn’t. Abortion is either murder, or it is not.
The Church's official position on abortion:
"In today’s society, abortion has become a common practice, defended by deceptive arguments. If you face questions about this matter, you can be secure in following the revealed will of the Lord. Latter-day prophets have denounced abortion, referring to the Lord’s declaration, “Thou shalt not … kill, nor do anything like unto it” (D&C 59:6). Their counsel on the matter is clear: Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints must not submit to, perform, encourage, pay for, or arrange for an abortion. If you encourage an abortion in any way, you may be subject to Church discipline.
Church leaders have said that some exceptional circumstances may justify an abortion, such as when pregnancy is the result of incest or rape, when the life or health of the mother is judged by competent medical authority to be in serious jeopardy, or when the fetus is known by competent medical authority to have severe defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth. But even these circumstances do not automatically justify an abortion. Those who face such circumstances should consider abortion only after consulting with their local Church leaders and receiving a confirmation through earnest prayer." -True to the Faith
As for your comments on what you think the Church's stance on homosexuals is... Love the sinner, hate the sin. The act of homosexuality is indeed an abomination before God. That doesn't mean that I can't love the sinner as a child of God.
(These are my heartfelt opinions, and I don't speak for the church. You can learn more at lds.org.)
Sixfrigates: Your lack of understanding astonishes me. You have so many posts on this page with complete misinformation streaming from them. It may look better for you if you actually found out what is taught before you throw out your assumptions (or cut-and-pastes from obvious anti-Mormon websites) and try to portray them as fact.
If you would like to discuss the facts, we can. As for right now, I'm calling BS on your comment above.
sixfrigates....you comments show a very deep misconception or ignorance of what we actually believe. We believe in loving ALL people, yet rejecting sin. I'm a devout Mormon yet I have homosexual, bi and trans friends. I love them dearly. That does not mean I love or celebrate their choices. Yes, we believe homosexuality is a sin. That doesn't mean we hate the people who choose to live that way. They are my brothers and sisters. I love them. I can separate the person and sin. I can love the person and hate the sin. Do you have children? or at least nieces or nephews maybe? If you were bathing an infant in one of those plastic tubs for babies and they pooped in the water you would likely find that pretty gross. You would obviously reject that water and want to be rid of it. Would you also want to be rid of the baby? would the baby be gross and disposable to you because they pooped in the water? NO! My LBGT brothers and sisters are not gross, they are not discusting, they are loved by our God just as much as I am. I can reject their behaviors (whether they can control their sexual orientation and identity or not, and that's another debate) without rejecting them or casting them away. I hope you will actually think about this and try to think before you speak and spew ignorance of a people you obviously no little about. And it might shock you to know that this Mormon chick has actually share a hotel room with a transgendered person before...a friend who I love dearly!
Sixfrigates: It is also important to note that the Church has put out it's position on abortion (of which it does not say, in case of incest or rape, you must abort), but you must remember that the Church also teaches that each individual is responsible for their own decisions. So if you are against abortion in all circumstances, then you get to chose not to ever visit a doctor for an abortion. Just as God says, "thou shalt not kill", there are circumstances in which killing another individual is justified and would be forgiven in the eyes of God. Someone in the military defending God's gift of freedom to us that others are trying to take away. Someone who is defending their own life as another is trying to take it. None of these choices are easy. Each of these choices are yours to make. Just don't lump them all into a simple black or white, right or wrong answer.
@CJ - Just a point for you to ponder: If your lgbt friends whom you love dearly ( I don't state this out of sarcasm but to press the point that you are obviously close to these people and know them fairly well) choose to remain celibate for the remainder of their lives, in your heart of hearts do you believe they will still be gay? Look at the elderly (possibly even your own family members) who haven't had sexual relations in decades, do you think they stopped being heterosexual? I have known I was 'different' from the other boys since I was 4 or 5 years old and knew I was gay by puberty. Was I a 'sinner' then too even though I remained a virgin until I was in college? Look at your friends. Do you really and truly believe that their lot in life is to carry a special 'sin' from cradle to tomb? What do you believe they think?
I'm not looking to debate you and there is no need to reply. I would just like you to seriously ponder those questions.
Didn't Christ teach to those that were sinful? Oh that's right Christ loves everyone for who they are, even if they sin. Come on six, love the sinner hate the sin. They're sin is theirs to pay for, not yours. Let thou who is without sin, let him cast first stone. To be a member doesn't mean your perfect, it does mean you want to be though. You can repent of moral transgressions, you can't repent of murder. Not unless you give your life for that of an enemy. Big difference between the two sins. Homosexuals have their demons to conquer as well, I don't know why you think Christ shouldn't help them overcome their problems as well

So much for ETERNAL principles. The LDS church bends it’s own teachings too often to fit trending public opinion. I half expected them to allow women into the General Priesthood session a year or so back when they were demanding it… and they almost did.
"almost did it". That's your opinion. And the fact is, they did not. So your claim that they bend is unfounded.
Really? I was just thinking the opposite, that this was a bit of window dressing. Nothing in this article said that women were being ordained to the priesthood, just that the leaders of various church auxiliary organizations, who were women, were being invited to participate in several leadership councils which are led by the church's council of twelve... Would you prefer that the church not invite women to these councils to provide their input in order to maintain consistency?
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only church in history not to bend it's own teachings.
Jesus Christ makes the rules here, not us.
LOL he states that the LDS church does not bend their teachings ! oh my. How many times has the endowment been changed ? In the endowment at Manti they were teaching that Adam was the Mormon God . So many LDS "prophets " taught that polygamy was necessary for godhood its a total farce to deny it. lol

First of all, the entire country is under distress. We have been invaded literally by foreigners and outright traitors inhabit OUR offices. This Marine should do what we need and group up and take it all back by force before it is too late. The flag should fly upside down in every town in every state. “Enemies both foreign AND domestic”
