When I first heard about sodomites wanting to get married in an official setting, I thought, good, now they can get divorces, too. It reminded me of something I had read about sodomites--they have a very high rate of 'partner exchange.' While heterosexuals may only have an average of 4 or 5 'sexual partners' in their entire life, sodomites have hundreds, if not thousands of them. It is disgusting to even think about it, but the facts are the facts.
"Don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up" is the motto for many today, esp. in relation to abortion, which they frame as 'a woman's right to choose' or 'women's reproductive health' Now I just watched a TV health channel with a female expert on breast cancer say that women who do not have children have a higher risk of getting breast cancer. Boy, if that isn't a clear signal that God intended women to have children, I don't know what is, yet in today's society, life is all about living your own life with freedom, not controlled by some old-fashioned ideas like religion. I have also heard there are health issues with abortion (of course, not only for the child but for the mother) which are not covered in the media.
I am beginning to think that SBC means Soon Be Changing. There must be over a hundred different Baptist denominations in the US. But then, I remember another story about the Methodists dividing recently over the sodomite issue. And Presbyterians have many varieties, too.
Maybe the next step for the House of Reps is to ignore the selection of Nancy Pelosi as head of the whole group? No, it does not surprise me in the least that they are doing this, since they operate with the mindset of 'don't bother me with the facts, my mind is made up'
It is interesting to compare this issue with how they deal with the guns issue. I've heard that every male in the country is required to serve in their armed services, and they are all armed. I wonder how that affects the crime rate. Another issue that would be interesting to find out how they deal with is immigration, especially of Muslims. I've heard in other European countries, Muslims are welcomed, and, as a result, women have to be very careful when they leave their homes. For many Muslims, maybe the ones from subdeveloped countries (that our President famously termed with a bathroom-related term), any woman--of any age--walking on the street alone is considered to be a prostitute, because in their religion, women's place is in the home, under the care of a parent or husband. Therefore, when they see a woman walking alone, with no protection nearby (what in America would be called a 'pimp'), they think they can attack that woman and sexually assault her. I've also heard that large groups of Muslim men, say 15 to 30, will go out and gang up on a woman to assault her, even in a public place like a train station. So, in Switzerland, is this happening?
Just another example of people behaving in non-rational ways. Same thing with abortion, which everyone knows kills an unborn human being, but the constant media drumbeat of 'woman's right to choose' and the overlay of total sexual freedm add up to people approving of it, even though their own Catholic Church (for example) is opposed to it.
You wonder how many of their congregation support the sodomite cause like they do. And that might reveal a 'Cultural Divide' between them and their congregation. This news story should be paired with the one about the decline of attendance at these congregations. Basically, people can find other ways to have the same opinion without spending money on someone's salary or a huge building with pipe organ. The Democrat Party is one place, and so is the local newspaper.
"Follow the money" is the theme today. It's good the 'federales' are checking up on these money connections, but they could find the same thing happening in any US university. What makes this particular version of interest is the fact that the Asian students lost their lawsuit against Harvard for using a quota to limit their numbers. Bottom line: they set a limit to the number of Asians to be admitted. The court decided in favor of the college, in a huge version of double-speak.
It sounds like 'Christianity Today' is trying to keep its name in the news, since few people buy it in print. I've never seen it at my local supermarket, and I can't tell you when I last went to a bookstore to buy a magazine. As to the subject being about 'tweets', I think that's a waste of time. Sure, the President uses them to get his message out, but he has made some mistakes with it and we are best advised to avoid it.
I think I've seen many comments here about the SBC having drifted far from any Biblical basis for their existence. They are more interested in keeping up large attendance numbers, lots of buses collecting kids for their Sunday school programs (I do remember seeing a church ad in the newspaper's Friday or Saturday religion page, boasting of their large Sunday School bus fleet).
This story serves as a reminder that abortion is seen by many, esp. Dems, to be a Human Right (for the mother, that is, not the child). Where does this idea come from? The Sexual Revolution of the 1970s, and the resulting 'freedom' of women to have relations with anyone they want to, outside the bonds of matrimony. It is like saying, 'you can't put the horse back into the barn once it's gone to Paris'
I think that's a good idea, 'Dr Tim' because obesity is related to short lives, so the more obese people there are, the less time they will be around to collect Soc Sec and Medicaid, thus draining those 'trust funds.' Along the same line, you could say that the govt should provide everyone a car equal to the Audi model that Bernie owns.
I think it's time for him to shake the dust off his shoes from any trip to UK. Sorry to say this for SA's UK readers, but I am always recommending US readers to give up on the UK as a source of any example. UK society, UK Constitution (wait, does it have one?), UK laws, UK population (esp. large percentage of Muslims) are very different from the US.
I think no one reads the printed copy of the National Review, and RL has made many comments making fun of them over the years. A key to understanding modern media is how the internet changed things, and not just making 'reading the paper' an exercise that only grandparents do. News media can now tell from sophisticated software programs how many 'clicks' a news story will get, so they know what appeals, and know it very fast. Thus it was that the 'Religion' page that used to appear in your local newspaper on Fridays or Saturdays has disappeared. No one is looking for that info in the newspaper when they can use online mapping tools and church websites to find out info directly. And newspaper websites focus on those 'hot' stories that get lots of clicks so they can sell advertising. Not only news media, but all sorts of info providers on the internet know this. It's why a certain medical info website that starts with "web" and ends with the 2 letters that start the name of a famous kosher wine that ends with 20/20 (due to its high alcohol content), will give you lots of quizzes and slide shows on any issue instead of telling you in 2 or 3 pages what you needed to know.
I am glad Sanders won because it was his own back yard (New Hampshire being next to Vermont, for our international readers). But people in NH are very different from VT, which you can see by traveling in both states. Vermont is super liberal, and does not allow Walmart. But there is a Walmart across the river, in NH, so they have no problem crossing that border to buy things cheaper than in VT. More interesting is the result of Warren not taking 2nd place, and Kolbuchar turning in 5th. Of course, you can ask yourself, who placed 3rd, 4th and 5th in 2016 NH primary? You have to remember the Clinton campaign cheated Sanders out of his winnings later on before the convention, but what do you expect from the Clintons? And that's another good thing about the NH primary--I didn't hear any pundits talk about how the Clintons preferred candidate A or B or C or D. Well, I didn't listen to George Staphonopuolus, the former Clinton Press Secretary who got a sweet, well-paying job at ABC.
I think the 2 items mentioned in the headline are also related to wearing clothes. Therefore, if we were going to solve both problems, we would be like those early dwellers in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve, who were 'naked and not ashamed'
Yes, there's a lot of trafficking on the internet. I just saw a bunch of people floating by on my screen a minute ago. Don't you see them? Seriously now, I think they miss the point. Border control has a lot to do with this issue. If you have no control on the borders, then anyone will get in, and any amount of drugs, etc.
