    Well, you can score on witty repartee…that’s a skill! But the point had nothing to do with underwear, masonry or missionaries…The fact is, a Mormon missionary, if he’s any good at all, continues to be a human being. He enjoys life, and maybe dances…even if he’s given up coffee and coke. (To me, it’s the coffee and coke that seals the deal, not the linen drawers. To deliberately turn from coffee…which I’m sure must be the drink of choice in heaven, if it isn’t chocolate…shows real character and self-sacrifice!)

    Qatar must be a Sunni state: The lie that Muhammed was poisoned by a Jew was promulgated by Ben Ali, after he assassinated the “prophet” and usurped the leadership, trumping the stepson’s claims, and opening the ever blazing battle between Shi’ite and Sunni.

    “‘If they choose to do this inside the church, choose to do this from the pulpit, then they open the door to the questions being asked,’ he told the outlet.”

    What? If they choose to disagree with sexual activity now legalized by politicians, the politicians behavior is above reproach and discussion? If the politics has made morality a political issue, it is the politician that has crossed the line.

    More comedy?

    “Feldman also said on a separate occasion, ‘If someone is speaking from the pulpit and it’s political speech, then it’s not going to be protected.’”

    Translation…if someone is disagreeing with Feldman’s making politics out of sexual behavior, they’re making political speech? Hardly! Feldman and his ilk has invented a new pulpit with a political arm, and is making religious decisions.

    Don’t inquisition my sermon…Let me deliver it to your face. And try to make a law prohibiting the free practice of a religion that declares a difference between behavior that produces the posterity that the constitution protects…and self-gratifying entertainment…

    Viet Nam…It was communist, getting its fair share.

    Read Bruce Olson’s account of parasites in the Amazonian jungle in his autobiography, Bruchko. It was definitely one of the most gripping reads in memory, but don’t try to imagine what the butterfly was that he dreamed he had swallowed. Can’t say I didn’t warn you…

    Robespierrer felt the same way…and began with the Reign of Terror, because all who disagreed with him disagreed with the concept of Virtue…the one that he decided was the right one.

    And this is news because 47 year-old self-styled “comedians” don’t have a grip on the English language beyond the anatomical equator? I’ve got kids in high school who can’t speak above this level either…and they think they’re comedians. Want to know how funny THEY are? Read this article again.

    Time for a counter suit, citing discrimination and assault on religious freedom. These perps need to be sent to diversity training, to learn that Christians have beliefs that differ from theirs, and differing beliefs no threat., and they need to curb their Christophobic, heterophobic assault on Christian minorities. Millions should be gleaned from the law firms that are raking it in when Christians bend over to accommodate and compromise.

    Here’s the great thing about the rapture doctrine: I might not have to do these dishes. Theology that is built with all your mights is only theory. Here’s the biggest problem…there’s my neighbor, and I know what I’m supposed to do.

    …so…is he coming yet? True religion is not born of my might but of His commandment, and I’ve a neighbor to love. Obedience is the rapture, if you’re willing to believe it. “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven…” is not a request. It’s my bound and determined quest for today…I have decided to fulfill Jesus’ prayer.

    Linen underwear and secret masonic initiation is known to give you special skills, an unfair advantage…but I think it’s the suit and tie. Myth: you stop being a human being when you decide to do something outside the mainstream.

    I guess the choice is always clear: Hospitalized against one’s will or jailed against one’s will. Why is it always that pesky will that gets in the way?

    No problem, roscoe…but let’s face it. Deny the historic record, and we never have to wrestle with Who He is. And that could be avoidance and denial with devastating consequences. Since He did exist, I had to confront His claims. And once the veracity of His claims were established, I did not need a sword or a threat to force me to love Him…just common sense…well…actually, uncommon sense, but good sense notwithstanding.

    And your mother was your primary life giver from the moment you were conceived. You were able to give back to her, to a minute degree, what she gave to you.

    Speaking to a former fetus, as you are, I don’t need to call you anything to establish that the death of a human being, in any moment of his development, is the arrestation of life. Be comforted to call it whatever keeps your conscience from being touched by life’s end.

    Truth doesn’t need reinforcement. It’s the only indelible substance in the Universe. Opinion has no impact on it…And it’s nice, having met the Truth, to acknowledge it. Nice to be allowed to acknowledge it. But you can base your opinion on your lack of experience. No problem. Forgive us when we express ours as freely as you express yours. Yours is not offensive, btw. Just erroneous, as opinions buttressed by feelings alone always are.

    Superior? Us? Hardly. But opinionated…just like you.

    It’s pretty courageous to pretend you’re god, and make your very last choice on your own. Facing the land of no more choices might cause you a moment’s hesitation…If the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, the ultimate expression of the lack of wisdom is in one’s willingness to be god until the end. Doctors make mistakes. Death is the last beginning…And responsibility…well…unfortunately, that will always be in the mix.

    She won’t be able to make anyone smile any more. She won’t be able to reach out to anyone any more. She won’t be able to comfort anyone else any more. She will become permanently useless…She won’t be able to receive love any more. She won’t offer anyone a chance for service. She won’t receive a selfless gift…she won’t be there for anyone.

    Courage? I’m with you. I think this is debatable, too.

    “They are violating the sanctity of religious sites without consequences, which completely terminates possibilities for peace and will ultimately drag the whole region into disastrous clashes,” Wow…At last someone who understands exactly what Mohammed did, and his followers continue to do…Peace where Islam has violated the city of peace? Fat chance as long as Islam is unrepentant. In one sentence you have the history of Islam, the religion of “peace” on its terms…or headless.

    I have a new friend. I’m a lighter-skinned American, and I have never been able to see the difference progressive changes in tint or hue make…The character is revealed in word and in deed, not in shallow shades of tannin. And I learned that from Rev. John Walker, who taught me that men with darker skin knew how to laugh and love more than the lighter skinned variety when he rolled laughing with me as a child on the grounds of St. Paul’s School, practically the only darker-skinned man in the state of New Hampshire before he became Archbishop of the National Cathedral.

    Good luck, mom. Don’t want help? You get to eat what the kid sows.
