I've no desire to fuel the debate so last word is y'alls. Observation has shown where you both stand.
Anyone who disagrees or questions John UK is lost and hell bound. Frank is a mediator and is trying to keep the peace.
For my characters sake, my husband is the leader of my home. Neither of you twos opinion matters. I do stay home and raise my children. I am within my biblical rights as we are not in church or an army or politics. I am done here.
So posting on a public forum is now feminsist and Christian women are forbidden? You both ignorantly paint with a broad brush and assume the women on here are in rebellion against their God given roles. I'm even the more glad that my salavation lies with Jesus and not men, for man makes a huge unscriptural list that is a burden. Christ is not burdensome.
Arizona Native, celebrating Independce while under lockdown. Interesting times. So, are people dropping like flies? Fear mongering is strong in my part of Texas. The cases are on the rise, so they say, yet only 1 death has been recorded and that was a 93year old woman. I feel for her family but this is not the boogeyman we were told. 1 out of 50k is hardly the reason to shut down an area.
Wayfarer, I respectfully disagree. The hospitals in my area of Texas are not overrun. Millennials aren't the only bar visitors. You're not likely to catch it at a bar anymore than you are at a grocery store. Open Texas up. People will catch it as they go out, naturally so. Case numbers will naturally rise (don't forget those numbers include ALL cases meaning a lot of those are recovered and old) but the death count hasn't and won't increase.
None of those 400 are or have ever been slaves therefore they don't qualify for reparations. Some sleazy politician could always right up a bill to shut them up but it word so that no one alive qualifies. But it'd be best to not even do that. Let them whine about a lack of brownies while they're hand is in the cookie jar. Childish.
I had a relative die during all this. She was in a nursing home and kept getting transferred to the hospital. The hospital would send her back because she didn't have covid19 and wasn't priority at the time. Covid killed her via medical neglect. But, yes, let's keep insisting for lockdown and obedience to government without considering any ill effects whatsoever.
Yes, because prohibition worked well. Give them an inch and they take a mile.. That's how you go from one extreme of banning this to the other extreme of banning that. Again, unbiblical power and authority.
I don't see where it's the biblical duty of government to control what a person chooses to indulge in. Legalize it as it should have never been illegal to start with. If a crime is committed than go after the perpetrator. The war on drug is a losing battle that causes prisons to be overwhelmed. *I don't smoke it nor endorse smoking it. Just saying, the government isn't our parent and shouldn't treat us as children. We went from making weed illegal to making raw milk illegal.
Mike wrote: Florida? It's up to the people of Florida to decide how safe they should be. JohnUK reply: Brother, considering that the majority of people in Florida are unregenerate, you've got the same problem as before. How can you expect them to make a sensible decision?
A lack of salvation does not equate to a low IQ. What a horrible and prejudice way to operate. Florida is capable of coming to a sensible decision and if not, it's still their choice. Christians aren't to be authoritarians controlling everybody's life and everyday choices. Unbiblical.
Me thinks you need some 1776 flowing through your veins. Some freedom thinking. Some libertarian food.
Just a quick note, when you see the case count go up from 3000 to 6000 you need to view those numbers under the guise that not all 6000 are sick at the same time. The numbers go up but they don't ever take any away once they've healed. So out of 6000 you could only have 2000 sick with 4000 having gotten better. There's no way to know for certain how many are sick at a given time. The current set up operates on your fear.
CDC has stated that if Covid19 is the suspect of death then you can mark the death as such without testing for verification. The numbers are skewed. That's fact, not conspiracy.
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.
