    Humorous, Grover.

    But…really…. two year olds look at children’s books all the time. My little ones had a bookcase full at that age.

    I have absolutely no doubt that they do….and that lives are robbed of potential due to such programs.

    In the 50′s, they could never have foreseen that we now can marry human cognitive function with digital or nano tech. Truly scary.

    Flying planes just can’t touch that….The real power lies in controlling people, not machines.

    That’s just it. Christianity is about the FREE WILL to make choices. God Almighty allows us to make the right or the wrong choice. We have the FREE WILL to support something or not.

    But, you Violet…. advocate that certain radical activists should have the right to take that free will away.

    You have no substantive argument for that.

    That was amazing. Will show to my kids.

    You are seriously comparing a Christian man who has dysfunction with alcohol and anger to genocidal maniacs like Pol Pot, Hitler, and Stalin???

    Seriously?

    Regardless, Jesus said to pray for your enemies. The degree of sin was never mentioned by Jesus.

    hi,

    I’m glad to hear you are the kind of person who has never had an embarrassing lack of self control, never had a problem with alcohol, or anger, and apparently have never met (or loved) (or been friends with) any decent person who HAS had those negative experiences.

    You are one usual person!

    Good for you. You must be in a special class of perfection that we can all aspire to.

    hi,

    Christ doesn’t want only those who are always “good.”

    The fact that Mel Gibson struggles with sin and vice does not make him an unfit vessel through which Almighty God can work.

    God created Mr. Gibson, gave him an immense talent, and He created the soul which holds faith strong enough to inspire the best movie about Christ EVER MADE.

    The power of “The Passion” to convert hearts to Christ has made Mel Gibson a target. But apparently, Gibson has not stopped trying to be the man God wants him to be. He hasn’t stopped trying to “walk with Christ.”

    Pray for him.

    hjablo,

    You can, indeed, be Jewish and Christian at the same time…all the Apostles were. Most very early believers in Christ as the Messianic Promise were….

    Being culturally and ethnically Jewish is not incompatible with Christianity.

    Ratio…

    Did ya read the whole article?

    Matt’s point is that her nomination sends the wrong message …NOT because she is female and not his political preference . . .but because she got her nomination through a life of corrupt, power and money hungry behavior completely bereft of ethical conduct.

    We want our children to reach for something higher than “power at any price.”

    We should NOT be celebrating that a person of such low character is a candidate for president.

    Historic does not equate with “good.” Pearl Harbor was historic too.

    Tuco,

    Calling CPS was the only appropriate action in that case. The doctor at the hospital had a duty to protect the children already conceived and born.

    Your drug addicted cousin is a poor choice for a debate example here.
    1. Tubal ligation is an elective procedure. ….not a medical necessity. and;
    2: Your cousin admitted to the doctor her inability to make responsible choices and good decisions in her addicted state! Therefore, it would not even be ethical for the doctor to perform the procedure at that point.

    And finally…… you disagree with a church you left 30 years ago….that is your right and your privilege……but then you gotta mind your own business and let the Church mind hers.

    If leaving the Church made you happy…then BE HAPPY. Get on with it. 30 years is a long time to hold so much unnecessary anger.

    I see it all the time. Women who have been told that they must focus for years on education and career. Maybe there is an abortion in those productive career years.

    Then they FINALLY get around to procreating with their spouse . . and . . they can’t get pregnant.

    It becomes all they can think about. It is then several years of stress, crying, doctors, expensive treatments, IVF, adoption options.

    It IS a crisis for that woman. She did always want a family, but put the marketplace demands before her own biology.

    And in her late 30′s to mid 40′s, time is running out.

    Because men can procreate easily into their 70′s, have lots of kids and NOT MISS ONE DAY OF WORK…… and women cannot. That is simply a fact.

    Biology is a fact. The demands of the marketplace are a reality.

    That photo shows a demographic, that’s all. There WILL be abortion and later life infertility among that group. It is not rocket science to have made that assertion.

    If all those people attended every single School Board meeting — and as many as were allowed to actually signed up to speak (three-minute limits for each person), believe me, after a while, the Board might be forced to acknowledge them.

    Make your school board members ACCOUNTABLE to taxpayers by attending the public meetings. Participate. And make sure that the local paper is notified that there will be many speakers at the meeting.

    Rabid,

    This is not feminism, but yes — this article is a bit silly.

    Showcasing photos of girls with Barbie Doll bodies in an annual SI article is not a problem — not for any woman who is living out her own vocation with purpose. Whether that vocation is motherhood or modeling, there is room for us all.

    What the author seems to talking about is virtue. Virtue is beautiful, but that doesn’t mean we have to denigrate those who have extraordinary physical beauty. After all, that is a gift from God too.

    I know plenty of physically lovely women who would welcome the hefty pay that comes from an occasional big time modeling job — rather than spend all day away from their kids at a 9 to 5. they are making living.

    hadanuf,

    Plus sizes are usually called “women’s” sizes and — yes — you are correct — they start above size 14.

    Average women are size 10-12.

    Jinxe,

    I get it.

    You thumbed through the Cliffs Notes of two chapters on Christian theology for five minutes.

    You should know that your comments create the impression that you have no idea what you are talking about.

    There are literally hundreds of thousands of sites where you can learn about Christianity…either through videos or reading.

    I suggest you would be better off doing that before you comment further

    Withmy89vision,

    The study and practice of TYPOLOGY in scripture is something you might want to spend 15 minutes reading about.

    Typology shows clearly that God did not “change His mind.” He brought about change in human beings. We were very slow to trust and learn.

    In the Old Testament (and in Jewish tradition), there are many “Types” that match “Types” in the New Testament. Seminarians can spend years studying Typology because there is so much of it!

    For Example:

    The blood of the lamb saving people is just one major one that comes to mind!

    Abraham and his son willingly offered as a sacrifice is another.

    I could go on — but you can read about it for yourself.

    If you knew scripture, you would know that God is not the capricious one. If you knew scripture well, you would see that He always ASKS us to do what is best for us. We are the capricious ones! Because He gave us free will to say NO.

    Oh, and God did not decide to “kill” one of His children: Jesus IS God and willingly chose to GIVE his life for you.

    Your comments betray your lack of understating about Christianity and about scripture. It is not too late to educate yourself.

    Surely, scheduled on his packed agenda was visiting sick kids in the hospital!
    However, his secretary probably did not figure in the time for one of the cancer patients to sing for him. The whole thing was too awkward to be planned — and she was sitting in an odd spot for a photo op.

    In biographies of Pope John Paul II, it was said that he was aggravating to his secretary for always throwing off the tight travel schedule by taking the time to visit with people – or stopping the car to go into churches and chapels to pray. He never failed to visit with people in wheelchairs at papal masses. So much so that his secretaries made sure there were no more than 30 at any one. Because they knew he would kiss, hug and meet each person.

    What you think of as a “photo op” may be just a desire to reach out. It is all in your perspective.

    Those people who are used to a more independent lifestyle will always be able to help themselves . . . and others . . when crises arise.

    Many people choose daily to be prepared. They don’t just store extra water and food. They install alternate forms of heat and a way to cook — like wood stoves. They store cords of wood. They keep battery operated lanterns, with extra batteries . . and matches and candles.

    They are supplied and self-taught to treat several different kinds of wounds or injuries.
    Maybe they have a hand pump installed on their well, which can be used if the electricity is off.

    They have a firearm with which to hunt — or to protect their families.

    Lots of people choose to live in semi-rural areas in very modest housing — so that some of their income can be put into raising a few animals, or growing some food.

    Of course,they still have TV’s, cell phones and shop on Amazon like we do.

    That is not being a crazy “prepper.” It is simply being prepared, so that you can help yourself, and your neighbors — when the SHTF.

    Terry Daktyl,

    Don’t let that stupid woman change your lovely manners. There are a lot more women out there who would be gracious when you offer your assistance.

    Women of a certain age have been brainwashed to believe that in order to be equal they have to be “the same.”

    Don’t stop being a man because some brainwashed b**tch forgot how to be a woman.
