    If your faith is based on the method God used for creation or the time span He took to do it, you are on dangerous ground. Such matters as these are trivial to God – if it were not so, then it would have been a central theme in the Gospel message.

    Whether we were create with a “poof” as we are now, if animal life evolved over millions of years until we came along and God blessed us with His likeness, or some mix in-between, does not matter in the grand scheme of things.

    My faith is based on God’s love for me, so great that while I was in open, vicious rebellion against God, He sent His only begotten, perfectly innocent Son to be tried, convicted, and executed in my place.

    I have opinions on whether it took 10,000 years to go from Genesis 1 to John 19 or 10 billion, but the actual time in years is irrelevant to the message.

    If you preach to thousands and reach only one with the Truth, it was worth the effort to preach to thousands.

    You observation is irrelevant, much like Frank Zappa.

    I kind of agree that prayers should not be said over the loudspeaker. Public institutions should not be giving preference to any one religion. This is much, much better, and a significantly more powerful testimony.

    Didn’t really care one way or the other, but I did find a note of irony in the separatists grievances. They complained of paying too many taxes to London, but Scotland is a 50 member block keeping the progressive Labor party in power. Did they expect the progs to only tax England?

    Does it matter to anyone listening to this clown that the Talmud was written before there was any such things as Muslims or Christians? So how, exactly, would instructions be there to slaughter one?

    The Koran, on the other hand, when it is not telling Muslims to tolerate Jews and Christians, does give them permission to slaughter them.

    What are the odds the courts will seek Justice over protecting other government wrong doers.

    I can’t say I have any more faith in federal courts than I do the State Department.

    Well, I believe He is sending us warnings, much like He warned Israel prior to their destruction. Israel defiantly ignored the warnings and was destroyed. If we continue to ignore them, we will also be destroyed.

    There are two types of blessings God gives – one for individuals who are His, one for nations who follow His precepts. When an evil man resides in a blessed nation, he will share in the fruits of that blessing for a time. When a righteous man resides in a cursed nation, he will likewise share in that nation’s curse for a time.

    In the end, it doesn’t really matter what an individual’s circumstances are in this life as the trappings of success in this life are pointless. Sure, it’s nice to be comfortable, but sometimes it’s more profitable in the long run to be uncomfortable. The real prize waits at the finish line so, regardless of the conditions of the course, we must run it so that we will qualify for the prize.

    What does the approval or denial of a certain kind of relationship have to do with advocating for clients in court? Are there no law schools for those who wish to be free to practice said relationships to attend?

    Since there are such schools, the only reason to deny this one is to punish their religious point of view, which has nothing to do with the ability to practice law.

    that should have been occident. Stupid fingers and worthless spell check ruining a perfectly good pun.

    I think he used it by oxidant.

    I won’t buy diamonds. They are pretty, but the cost is too high. They are one of the most common things on Earth, but the vast majority of them are controlled by the monopoly De Beers, which is banned from doing business directly in the US due to their iron fisted hold on the industry.

    De Beers even pays for blood diamonds just so they don’t have to compete against them. They are nasty. This is just a rumor to increase demand and profit.

    Like Ray says, yes. I don’t care how fast people are going if they are not causing problems for other motorists.

    Bit not just with accidents, but reckless driving, which is also illegal. Sudden lane changes, cutting off other drivers, driving too fast for conditions – those are all valid concerns. Saying that because people who do those things are typically going at least this fast, let’s make everyone, safe or not, going that fast a criminal is arbitrary and wrong.

    But, to be honest, I’m not even happy about school zones. There’s nothing going on at a rural high school at 11:00 in the morning that says I should drive 20 MPH to pass it instead of the 45 the road usually tolerates.

    To say one is more important than another is to imply the loss of one is more significant than the other.

    I disagree. Freedom of Religion without freedom to speak about it is what the FFRF is pushing for. If you can’t have a particular religion, what good is it to speak about it?

    Do either of those things matter if we don’t have the right to peaceably assemble to talk and share our religion through speech?

    All of those, and the rest of the Bill of Rights are 100% necessary. The loss of one prevents the use of the others.

    How about only punishing people who cause problems instead of all the people who might?

    I’m not sure your or my knowledge of a given celebrity is the measuring stick for fame. He’s won a dozen awards in categories I don’t pay much attention to and his song “Happy” has a million or so views on YouTube and is a cross-genre hit that you could not avoid, if you listen to pop music.

    I think he could reasonably be referred to as “famed.”

    If his message centers specifically around a single topic, then he is correctly labelled pro- or anti- that topic. Any preacher so strongly devoted to a topic as to go to a secular university and preach to non-Christians about how Christian should or should not behave loses my trust. It serves no purpose other than to cloud the true message of the Gospel.

    Practicing and proclaiming homosexuality is not compatible with Christianity, there is no doubt about that, but what if you are not a Christian? Do you have to stop sinning before accept God’s love and grace? If so, what is the purpose of grace?

    We desperately need to stop telling non-Christians how to behave in order to be proper Christians. There isn’t anything in the world that matters less to the lost than our rules for acceptable behavior. Homosexuality is no greater than the sins destroying our lives before we accepted Jesus Christ.

    We were saved by His grace through our faith in Him, not because we stopped sinning.

    You do not need to stop practicing homosexuality to become a Christian, but having a meaningful relationship with your Creator will begin to transform your life and lead you away from destructive lifestyles. I still struggle with my old lifestyle, I doubt I will ever be free of it during this life, but God’s grace is sufficient for me.

    jblaze is absolutely correct – everyone knows Jesus was a Pepsi man. I’m pretty sure drinking Coke is what He meant when He told us blaspheming the Holy Spirit is the unforgivable sin.

    You know, if one side or the other dictates the outcome of an investigation and trial before the evidence has been presented, then Justice is not bling and will be missing from the outcome.

    Is the need to have a photo so great that any old bus crash will do, even if it makes the story frustrating and confusing?

    That’s kind of funny to say since Budweiser is already a Belgian company, so Miller will be, too, if the sale goes through.
