Untaught history: blacks were slave owners before and during the civil war. They treated some of their enslaved black men like dogs. Harriet Tubman's husband, a free black man, threatened to sell her farther down south so she ran away. The birth of the underground railroad was started by a poor husband. Indians had slaves too. They didn't have to nor want to give theirs up when the emancipation proclamation came about. The government had to make another treaty with them. Before,during, and after the civil war whites were being captured on sailing ships to be sold as slaves in the Africa slave trade. So there you have it, blacks, Indians, and whites ALL had slaves before and during the civil war. Nobody is innocent. All have been enslaved at some point in time in history. Some still are ensalved.
Mike, right on. All the children I know, that are allowed to play outside and have thinking parents, are quite happy. If anything, they'll get PTSD after experiencing freedom and then being forced back into a brick box for indoctrination.
The thing we forget with America is that our country is young. Our country was also started when recorded history was at an all time high so our stains of the past are aired for all to see. The folks that love to point at our scarlet letter fail to acknowledge their own which is usually hidden in an obscure past. No country has origins that doesn't have war and conquers playing a part. To state otherwise is plum ignorance. History shows us the best and worst of mankind. More beautifully it shows us the need of our Savior.
This wouldn't be the first protected class with their own police force. The Indians have the same. The missing women statistics are sky high on the rez and they always holler that the federal gov. doesn't do anything when literally the fed has no operational grounds on the rez. You can't win even when you give them what they want. Crime will soar if BLM gets their way but, somehow, it'll still be the white mans fault. Personal responsibility is non existent. We don't have to suffer the consquences of our actions in our self gratification world.
You're a promoter of snake oil. Take the vaccines if you want them. Long term safety studies have not be conducted because the CDC deems them "unethical." Ironically, it's unethical to promise sonething works and effects very few people without actually being able to back that up scientifically. Finding peer reviewed studies that are not bought out is equivalent to finding a needle in a haystack. People are not guinea pigs. Freedom of medicine, even in a pandemic, is a right guaranteed by God. Our bodies do not belong to the government. They are not Ceasars therefore we don't have to render them to him or any of your other conmen, Jim. Any safety studies done on a covid19 vaccine will have been super limited. The data is incomplete. A dangerous thing to bet your life on especially when the virus has a 99% survival rate. The cure is worse than the disease.
What vaccines were originally and what they are now are two different things. Mass production and greed took what utilized the body's naturals response and turned into a huge money maker that is quite deadly for some.
Ever heard of the cutter incident, Jim? Maybe people are just tired of being guinea pigs. No vaccine on the market, including the covid19 one when it emerges, has undergone any kind of safety testing. Why would they need to? Manufacturers can't be held liable for any adverse reactions.
Their situation is a little bit trickier, JohnUK. They're not at the same starting point as Americans are. Perhaps they should aim to opt for a constitution similar to ours. It would allow them religious freedom and the right to protect themselves, etc, etc. Now I'll be honest and admit I have no desire to converse further with you.
So all the people who disobeyed their government and hid Jews were in sin? So the people who lowered Paul out the window in a basket were in sin? When Rahab lied she was in sin? When the government is right and biblical then we submit. When the government is wrong and unbiblical it is our duty as Christian citzens to fight against it. Rebellion doesn't not always equate sin.
Chrisgp, it is very interesting to me how the artitude of the brits is so soft. My children and I are reading through Our Island Story, a history of Britan. The early Brits had a don't tread on me attitude. Very interesting.
They've always been devious, Mike. Their information contradicts itself.
Boy, these folks sure have a thing for churches. Do you know how many people ignorr social distancing and all the other "safety" precautiona out there and still aren't dropping like flies.... I'll be honest and say I'm skeptical of this.
Sing anyways. Are the church members going to drag you out of service? Will the state bar the doors? Meet elsewhere. It's your duty to disobey unjust laws. Logic says if covid19 is a good enough virus to prevent singing than we must ban it altogether because there are other contagious, even deadly to some, viruses out there.
