The threat only works if you believe it. It is just a story like Harry Potter otherwise.

The man orchestrated the horrendous and violent deaths of nearly 3,000 American citizens. He earned a little excessive force.

For an atheist, you sure waste a lot of your time and energy on a God you claim you don’t believe exists. If you truly believe this life is all you have, why would you waste one single breath fighting something you think is a figment of someone else’s imagination? It’s like someone spending their one and only life waging war with the tooth fairy. At least Christians hold out for a life beyond this one and, if we’re wrong, we’ll never, ever know it but will have lived a good life with good principals and peace and contentment. If you’re right, and there is nothing but this life, and you really believe that, then you are wasting incredibly valuable, irreplaceable time denigrating, insulting and being intolerant of people who believe in something you don’t instead of going out there and living your one and only life to it’s fullest, and when you close your eyes in death you will cry out for even just one of those wasted minutes back because you get no more. However, if you are wrong, you will regret it for all eternity.

The first amendment reads “CONGRESS shall make no LAW respecting an establishment of religion…” How does this sheriff’s decision to do this involve either the U.S.Congress or any law passed by them? And don’t give me the “separation of church and state” baloney because that is NOWHERE in the constitution.

If Trump is the answer then America is doomed. If Trump is a conservative or even a moderate Republican, then Billy Graham is a satanist. We called BHO’s supporters OZombies for falling for his “hope & change” BS and then as soon as a snake oil salesman comes along claiming to be on our side we fall for the same crap. It just tells me that if BHO had declared as a Republican, we would have gladly elected him and he wouldn’t have had to change a single thing in his campaign. We get the government we deserve. It is no wonder at all the Bible calls us sheep. To paraphrase Daffy Duck…”Consequences, Shmonsequences, as long as we win”

No prayer is needed to either ask God to do His will or to line our will up with His? Then what is the purpose of prayer I wonder? Why, in His model prayer, did Jesus teach His disciples to pray to “Our Father, who art in heaven…Thy WILL be done on Earth, as it is in heaven”? Silly prayer isn’t it if it has no effect? Why does Paul instruct us to “pray without ceasing”? (1 Thessalonians 5:17) How did Moses change God’s mind about destroying the Jews if we are to just “sit back and accept whatever God chooses to do” as you say? (Exodus 32:11-14) How is it that TWICE in Amos, the prophet pleads with God and convinces Him to change His mind? (Amos 7: 1-6) Why does God say “If my people…will humble themselves and PRAY…THEN I will hear…”? (2 Chronicles 7:14) God can, indeed, be convinced to change His mind or act on our behalf through the “effective prayer of a righteous man” which can “accomplish much.” (James 5:16) God does not consider us “specks” in the universe…if you are born again you are His CHILD that He loves enough to give His very Son for. Do you consider your children mere specks? The value of something is determined by Who owns it and how much He was willing to pay for it. God owns us and He paid for us with His Son’s blood…that makes us the most valuable thing in all creation and He calls on us to call Him “Daddy” (Abba) just as His Son did! (Mark 14:36, Romans 8:15 and Galatians 4:6)

It has never been a gun problem but a heart or, more to the point, a sin problem. “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?” – Jeremiah 17:9

So Paul was incorrect when he said that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord? (2 Corinthians 5:8)
trurl, I believe Moses being with Jesus at the Mount of Configuration shows us that you are correct. Enoch, and Elijah were the first to be raptured, but Moses died, and was buried. He was a flawed man like all of us, but he still resides with the Lord today, and is not "sleeping" until the Christ returns.
trurl, I humbly ask you if Christ was incorrect when he said that Lazarus was sleeping? Snowleopard is correct when stating that the bible is quite clear about the state of the dead. According to Ecclesiastes 9:5, "...the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten." As for rickfromthecape, is it not within God's power to have allowed Moses to die (he did disobey God and was told that he wouldn't see the promised land) and then resurrect him and bring him to heaven?

Since there is evidence that people of other religions see Mohammad, Buddha, etc., is it not more plausible that something happens at the moment of death (e.g. oxygen starvation) that causes feelings of euphoria and “visions”?

So then why do we have any laws at all? If passing a law can’t prevent someone from doing something then why legislate? Why have police? People are going to do what they’re going to do so why have a legal code of any kind? I mean, outlawing theft hasn’t stopped thieves, outlawing speeding hasn’t slowed people down, outlawing prostitution hasn’t stopped women from walking the streets, outlawing murder hasn’t stopped killing. Of course, the liberal looneys who make such arguments have no problem at all when it comes to a desire to outlaw guns. THAT will work they say. Ridiculous.

All they managed to do was prove that Memories Pizza denies service to no one as they said all along. Their stand had nothing to do with people being gay but about participating in a ceremony that violated their conscience and faith and these two morons just proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt. “Gay man purchases pizzas for him and his partner…says this proves pizza shop hates gays.” Film @ 11. I’m sure their guests appreciated two cold pizzas instead of a truly thought out, actually catered meal. That’s a special kind of stupid.

Different take… watch very closely: Is it possible that the kid was just trying to toss the helmet away and swung it a little low and caught the other guy in the head? He did let go of it. I’m not 100% convinced it was intentional. Stupid and careless perhaps but maybe not intentional. For me it is not completely clear cut and before anybody goes crazy, I’m white.
Don't be stupid. He did not absolutely slam the helmet into the guy's head, but he hit him with it on purpose.
So, you would throw the helmet into the crowd rather than behind you? Player W running forward. Player B grabs helmet (not legal move in football), Helmet from player w momentum would continue forward when helmet was grabbed. No, this was done on purpose.
Can't you read 10 stitches deep bruise. I don't know what video you are watching
Are you freakin kidding me? Try watching it with your glasses on this time! Geesh!!!
I'll say it again.....then why did the ref throw a flag?????????????

It happened to me once and all I can say is if I had been 2-3 feet further along the freeway my passenger and I would have been dead. In my case it was not just a rock but a small boulder that hit the road a split second before I hit it @ 70 MPH. Totaled my vehicle. It was late at night so I never saw it coming off the dark overpass. Never caught the SOBs who did it. These morons should get a lot more jail time for what they did. They think it’s hilarious and then some poor soul like this lady gets permanently injured or someone gets killed. Dumba** losers, each and every one of them!
Someone was throwing jugs of milk out of a moving vehicle at cars one night while my husband was out driving by himself. He saw them hanging out the window of the truck and glanced back and saw the car behind him crash and he stopped. Thankfully the lady and her baby weren't hurt badly, but they both had nicks and cuts all over them from the safety glass. He stayed until the police arrived and was able to point out the truck as the idiots drove back by. One of the officers went after them and brought them back to the scene. Stupid teenagers thought it would pop like a balloon and just spray milk everywhere.
these idiots have no concept of how physics, mass and inertia works...this could have also caused a huge chain reaction pile up and many deaths....fencing might have prevented this but there's always someone evil or stupid enough to work around that sort of thing...and if you live in a simi-rural area with overpasses between ridges there's the possibility that a spooked deer might leap over the rails and crash into your path which has happened

Reminds me of an old Doonesbury cartoon where one character suspects the governor of Samoa of taking a bribe and feels compelled to report it. The governor asks: “Who’s the highest authority on this island?” … “You are, sir.” … “So, report it to me.” … “Sir, I suspect you of taking a bribe” … “I’ll look into it.”.
Cartoons abound in D.C.

I hope you meant VIRILE men, not VIRAL…cause viral men are just scary!
I stand corrected. I must admit my spelling is truly atrocious. Between that and the poor typing (sometimes my fingers betray me) I am sometimes truly embarrassed but sometimes I just have to laugh. .
I thought 'viral' was also a good word to describe these predators.
Lots of virile men pose no danger to women on their own and would, in fact, be protective if the situation arose.
Nonetheless it's every individual's responsibility to look after themselves to the extent they can.
