    One of the most annoying things she said was that worshipping Jesus Christ and speaking English is unnatural for her — presumably because her ethnic origins are African?

    She apparently does not know that one of the first places Judeo Christian thought flourished was in the African continent! Christian communities were there before they ever spread in most of the European continent.

    Secondly, what language did she think most American immigrants spoke when they got here? Except for the first English settlers and a wave of later Irish immigrants, everybody else spoke another tongue. . .

    By her logic, I should be an Latin speaking pagan or a Slavic speaking tree worshipper. And for me to be an English speaking Christian is unnatural . since my ancestors were neither?

    Yes, SOME of her ancestors may have come to this country via a slave ship, so they were not immigrants.
    . . but she is American by birth.

    She demonizes by color without reference to history. Does she even know that her African ancestors could have been captured by other black Africans to be sold to the slave trade? That tribal black Africa was a part of the commerce of buying and selling people? I could go on with basic world history . .

    It is a sad fact that she has been poorly educated in this country. Now, THAT should make her mad!!

    Don’t you have some straight friends who might be struggling with this topic? Perhaps you could make a contribution in one of your posts that is both helpful and actually relevant?

    Many people today are not raised to look at themselves as a work in progress, to be sacrificial, to work on virtues and be unselfish. These women were raised to expect ROMANCE from a perfect prince charming, but not real, daily LOVE with all its warts and bumps.

    Love is the “desire for good of the other.” You want THEIR good . . for its own sake, and not in relation to what it can do for you.

    That is very challenging in a marriage that lasts for decades. These women you mention were not taught what love is.

    Also, the desire for more “things” is their hopeless quest to fill the hole where God is supposed to be.

    VeryC,
    I am willing to defend your right to state and defend your own opinions!! Count on that. However, I wish you would try to consider that others can actually have opinions that are different than yours and not to be offended by it.

    Why does Matt have to affirm YOUR lifestyle?? If you are truly at peace and happy and fulfilled, then nothing anyone writes here will change your state of mind, right?

    And ya know, we are all obsessed with sex acts . We are human. We are wired to like it. So, let’s get off that train right now!

    Real Christians are going to believe what Christ said about sex. GET OVER IT.

    The “moral high ground” has to do with standing up for one’s own beliefs. That does not make someone moral. But it does speak to character. Whether I agree with you or not, I can at least respect you for standing up for your beliefs.

    Let’s just stop denigrating others for theirs . . . . . .ok??

    With all due respect, Jim S, my church and yours will very soon be pressured by THE STATE to marry whomever the state says. This has become a state’s rights and a religious right’s issue.

    I am not interested in stopping someone from marrying whomever they wish.

    . but . . Pay attention. People are losing their businesses because they choose to not make a frig gin wedding cake . or rent a hall . . make flower arrangements for a gay couple!

    How long before churches are pressured? THAT level of pettiness by the activist gay community is actually putting decent people out of business.
    You are not going to be allowed to have a dissenting opinion.

    Read some more news.

    I have a sibling and close friends who are gay. I am sorry to disappoint you, but I am not homophobic whatsoever. We love each other. I actually don’t tell them what to do with their sexual organs . . . nor their lives.

    But I am entitled to my opinions.

    My gay friends and relations are all mature adults . . .who can appreciate that traditional Christians have a right to their opinions too.

    Yeah, what a concept, huh?

    We don’t seem to have the problem that you do . . with needing us all to agree.

    I pray for my siblings, my other relations and my friends. And those who are Christian pray for me.. . cuz I got my issues with following Christ perfectly too.

    I can love someone without loving their behavior. It’s called being Christian.

    I am willing to debate in a respectful way. Please elaborate your point so I know what you are saying.

  • [7] March 7, 2015 at 6:24pm

    your response is irrelevant.

    Most people develop sexual desire and preference based on an unfulfilled emotional need which is combined with the sexual behavior they engage in or watch as young people. It has to do with emotional and psychological development — not biological or genetic predestination.

    What about people who choose every day to ignore very strong sexual urges in order to stay faithful to a spouse? Sometimes those sexual urges are accompanied by true emotional and intellectual attraction too! The CHOICE of not indulging in what is a really strong attraction is the point to be made here.

    I know several people who are engaged in same sex relationships right now. They are not gay. They are choosing to have that relationship for any number of reasons, none of which has to do with a lack of choice.

    Mojo,
    These women today are to be pitied. They are sleeping with men who were never taught how to treat a lady. .
    . . and the gals were never taught that you can still be strong and independent while being treated like a lady by your guy!

    Being a chivalrous and protective man is a good thing.

    Only a few dozen rabbits were introduced for sporting purposes by European settlers a long time ago.

    With no natural predators and breeding rapidly, they have indeed had a tragic effect on the Australian outback ecosystem.

    Norman

    I am not sure I understand your reply.

    I am talking about how our country and the world is turning into a fascist place where personal freedoms are being trumped by an agenda, in which big government overreach and religious oppression reign supreme.

    What are you saying?

  • March 3, 2015 at 7:02am

    Xiccarph,

    Yes I read “The Little Ice Age.” (Author Brian Fagan) Interesting stuff.

    If only those climate changers would read it . . might give them some educated perspective on how our world actually works.

  • [9] March 2, 2015 at 10:45am

    If you add stories like this to the ones on anti-Semitism and federal control of the interwebs . . .and then you can’t see the writing on the wall, you are blind.
    The freedoms of expression and religion are eroding faster than they can report on it.

    Agreed. The story is unsatisfying without an approximate date of this “mortality crisis.” The 17th and 18th centuries had a lot of horrible weather wreaking havoc on agriculture. There was a lot of famine.

    The number and concentration of vaccine given to babies when they are seven days old is ridiculous.
    The vaccines could certainly be spread out over time.

    There is hype existing about SOME of these “diseases that keep coming back.” Those of us older folks had measles, mumps and chicken pox as kids . . and then became immune. These diseases are only fatal to a tiny immune-compromised portion of our society.

    And immune systems work much better when they are exposed to the natural biology in the world around us! ( ie, immunity is improved when exposed often to germs and dirt and animal dander.)

    Also, children’s immune systems are wiped out by all the antibiotics they are given as toddlers, and those naturally occurring intestinal flora which are wiped out are never replaced. This leads to allergies and weak immunity.

    We have it backazzwards in our culture. Stop wiping every surface down with antibacterial wipes! Stop prescribing antibiotics for every runny nose or red ear! STOP preventing your kids from getting dirty playing outside!

    Stop irradiating food or replacing the it’s genetic perfection with GMOS. (Major cause of food sensitivities..)

    And . . allow parents to make decisions for their own families. I have friends whose child developed a condition on the autism spectrum after vaccination. While he is loved and given every opportunity, he will probably never be able to live independently nor raise a family.

    Avoidable tragedy.

    The most important prayer you can pray consistently is, “Lord, Thy Will be done.”
    Because then you cede control to God.

    I believe this couple is really trying to blend a faith-like interest in doing God’s will with a career. At least they are trying. That said, I question their trust in “friend” Rick Warren and his brand of “Christianity.”

    Thanks again, Matt for a well-written piece.

    RSVP is the only way to do it. How can you plan a party and not know how many people you are hosting?

    Good schools usually have a “homeroom parent” for each class who has a phone list or email list of all the parents of the kids in the class. Calling parents personally (and introducing yourself) is a good idea.
