Quote# 104211

But keep in mind most pervertarians are not homosexuals themselves, or have anything they stand to gain personally from abolishing marriage in the name of marriage equality. They are enemies of the Church, and have found a convenient stick with which to beat the Church: they can claim that laws against sodomy, or laws acknowledging marriage, are just like the Jim Crow laws the Democrats enacted in the South after the Republican Union smashed the Democrat institution of slavery. What the connection is between race-hatred, which is an irrational antipathy of a whole racial group of man based on a trivial external characteristic no one can control or change, and a moral opprobrium against sexual perverts, which a rational antipathy against those individuals who freely decide to transgress the bounds of law and of nature, is a mystery of the Democrat faith. It is a talking point, something said without substance, neither meaningful nor meant to be believed, merely an emotional appeal, like calling someone a bad name, or calling an atrocity by an nondescript euphemism. It is a word-fetish.

Quote# 104219

This last blog is directed to the one hundred percent of those in society who oppose any attempt by the Christian Church to exert any influence in the public sphere.

You will fail. If you despise religion in general and/or Christianity in particular and you want to eradicate its influence from all realms of daily life…you will fail. Its been tried, and tried, and tried. You liberals and progressives really don’t study history very well. Yes, for over two millennia you have persecuted, tortured, and martyred multitudes of us. You have successfully marginalized Christian faith in many cultures. And lately you have even swayed most of the eighty-percenters who ordinarily don’t like involvement of any kind in church to join your ranks (the poor souls actually believe it when you tell them the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing to do with homosexuality, that when Jesus referred to eunuchs He was talking about homosexuals, and that gayness isn’t about sexuality but love).

Yet no matter how hard you try and how seemingly successful you appear in turning the tide of public sentiment your way about numerous issues…you just can’t seem to stifle and silence the faithful remnant of the living God (the twenty-percenters). Who would have guessed during the reigns of Lenin and Stalin in Communist Russia that Christians could not only survive but thrive? The same could be said of places like China and even Iraq! For that matter have you an answer for how in the world the Jewish people could reestablish themselves in their homeland after having been dispersed for the better part of two thousand years? Surrounded by people who have sworn never to rest until they are annihilated? Look on a map, hundred-percenter. Have you an explanation for how that tiny sliver of land and its people have held on despite being surrounded and outnumbered? When will you learn?

You may go on a tear and win battle after battle after battle. But you cannot win the war. You are not the first generation of liberals and progressives! Your critical mistake is thinking that once everyone sees your supposed superior logic they will either swoon or take flight. Your self-aggrandizement just doesn’t know what to do with itself when the twenty-percenter is neither impressed by your argument nor afraid of your loathing. Our faith is stout. Our resolve is firm.

This blog may sound harsh and may be interpreted as the rantings of a mean-spirited evangelical Christian. Yet, while I intend to write with clarity I do not write also with spite or anger. I simply wish to inform you that even should you take full possession of all three branches of American government and pass laws in all 50 states criminalizing everything conservative or Christian the twenty-percenters would still be a vocal thorn in your side.

(In response to the owner of a shooting range banning Muslims from entering)
I say good for her. A lot of you talk about the rights they have under the Constitution being that they cannot be discriminated against because of their religion. Islam is nothing more than a cult following. It is not a peaceful following as they try to make people believe. This is a nation founded on Christian beliefs, values, and principles and our forefathers gave reverence to God the Almighty, the one and only true God. The way I see things, if there is anyone in this country who is not a citizen of this country, they have no rights. The vast majority of Muslims deny our laws because we are not a Muslim nation, but yet the have infiltrated our society and are trying to force their beliefs and laws onto us. If I had my way, they would all be gone back to their Muslim homelands.

First, even if everything ya'll say is true, then placing a child into a homosexual couple is not a great idea. Second, it disagrees with my religious beliefs and I want my child to be raised into the same beliefs that I was. On that second criteria alone, I would reject all homosexual couples, all non-christian couples, and more then a few christian couples.

Quote# 104217

There is nothing in the Bible about same-sex marriage, because it is the wrong argument. Satan loves to get people arguing over the wrong thing. While the world is arguing whether or not they should be married, the Bible is arguing whether or not they should be alive. Don't get mad at me, God authored the Bible and said that homosexuality is a crime in His government, punishable by death in Leviticus 20:13. Granted, that seems overly harsh to me as well, but I didn't make the rules and write the Bible, God did. I don't question God's Word. I'm not as righteous as God, so I cannot fathom God's justice and laws. I cannot grasp someone being cast into Hell forever, but God said it and that settles it! I don't question my Creator, I choose to trust and love Him because He first loved me (1st John 3:16).

Of course they have a problem with liberalism and secularisation in Israel too. I hope the Orthodox can deal with this.

"Evil"!? You call Israel evil!!? They are heroes who defend the Holy grounds against the evil of Islam, just like the noble Crusaders once did. Of course it is sad that most Israelis do not recognise Jesus as their saviour. Judaism is a good religion created by God; sadly it's too incomplete to save anyone.

Quote# 104208

This is GOD we are engaging with, not a mere mortal. We relate to Him according to an entirely different set of rules. He is first and there is no negotiating His needs with Him. He gets to be as unreasonable, extreme and particular as He wants. He gets to be possessive and territorial. He is GOD—how can we withhold from Him? He can take whatever He wants, but how much better that we bring our souls to Him voluntarily and lay all of our love down at His feet. What other being has done even a fraction of what this God has done for us? Who could even begin to love us like He does? We cannot simply bathe in the Blood and then go on with our lives as if nothing happened. Our lives ended the moment we became saved—these are HIS lives now and they must be poured out in a way that brings Him the highest honor possible. Ask the Holy Spirit to increase your understanding of God’s consuming jealousy and to give you a double portion of zeal to satisfy it. We exist for God’s pleasure and a few of us are wise enough to see the great privilege that this is. Let’s make the most of it.

Quote# 104210

The proponents of what is called (with unintentional hilarity) gay marriage express the gaiety for which they are named by crowing and gamboling with delight that the Supreme Court has declined to do its core Constitutional mission of interpreting the law, and chastise and check the abuses of activist judges overruling the sovereign votes of the decent and sober majority.

They should perhaps rein in their gay celebrations: gay marriage cannot be justified either in law or logic. This means the law has just departed from the environs of law and logic.

The gay partisans should instead recoil with dread, for the thing, by being given into their hands, is effectively destroyed. Whatever meaning or sanction the pairs of homosexuals are seeking out of the pretense of marriage is destroyed by the very fact that it is a pretense, not a marriage.

The cell is the smallest unit of living things. There are two different, non-interchangable types of cells, plant and animal. One cannot become the other. For evolution to be true, the first living cells had to be plant life because an animal cell, having nothing to eat, would die immediately. Since that cell could not become an animal cell, a SEPARATE abiogenesis would have to occur. That is now TWO impossibilities, or impossible squared.

Quote# 104215

First God defines the concept of righteousness, then He designs us to be the complete opposite of righteousness. He then makes it impossible for us to fix ourselves, and at the same time He demands that we do. The result: a desperate sense of depravity on our side and an understanding that He is right and we are wrong. Excellent. God now introduces us to the concepts of mercy, grace, and salvation. The result: a deep sense of gratitude towards Him which drives us to embrace the role of humble servants. Good. The proper relationship dynamic is shaping up very nicely. After salvation, God refuses to correct our desire to sin. We still find ourselves strongly attracted to evil—an attraction which He is constantly defining as wrong. The result: an acute awareness of our desperate need for Him in every moment. Excellent. If all goes well, we now view ourselves as lowly creatures who are loved by a kind and superior God. God instills an intense need to worship within us so that we’ll continue to see Him as the superior One and also find exalting Him to be intensely satisfying to our souls. This also helps us stay within the bounds of the relationship dynamic He wants.

Quote# 104195

[This is from an article titled, "5 Reasons Why Girls With Tattoos And Piercings Are Broken".]

1. They're sluts

What kind of girl would be comfortable lying down half-naked in public for two hours while some fat dude with a dirty beard jams a sharp needle into her skin? Answer: the kind of girl who takes sharp objects in her vagina as a hobby. Girls with tattoos and/or piercings (aside from earrings) are slags who fall in and out of guys' beds at a moment's notice. If you're unfortunate enough to commit to a girl with ink on her body or metal in her face, she'll cheat on you at the drop of a hat. Tattoos and piercings are the mark of the whore, which is why in more traditional countries like the Philippines, only whores have them.

[...]

3. They're selfish

The reasons girls get tattoos and piercings - "I'm doing it for ME!" - are indicative of narcissism and mild psychopathy. Girls get tattoos for the same reasons they cut their hair short: a desperate attempt to assert how unique and special they are. A girl who willfully disfigures herself like this will never attempt to please you or do anything nice for you. She won't care for you when you're sick, will refuse to sleep with you for completely arbitrary reasons, and will generally be a moody, unlikable cunt.

4. They're boring

Girls' logic when it comes to tattoos is best described by paraphrasing Lena Dunham's character in Girls: "I have a tattoo, and that just makes me naturally interesting." Nothing could be further from the truth. My experience shows me that girls with ink and/or metal are the most boring, conformist chicks you'll ever come across. To be fair, most girls are dull as dirt, but tattooed and pierced girls are aggressively dull, assaulting you with the most hackneyed left-wing tripe you'll ever hear.

My "piercing addict" girlfriend, for example, identified as Marxist (I shit you not) based on one class she took on Latin America and was constantly talking my ear off about some "injustice" or another. The joke was that before she took that class, she was so tuned out to current events that she wasn't even registered to vote. I derived incredible pleasure from shoving my cock in her mouth to shut her up.

5. They're mentally ill

This is the clincher. Any girl who thinks that getting a ring in her nose or a Bible verse on her back is a good idea is going to be off her rocker. In my entire life, I have never met an inked or pierced girl who wasn't sick in the head, whether they had depression, "anxiety" or a full-blown personality disorder. While girls with facial piercings and tattoos on the arms or legs can at least feign normality, chicks with piercings or tattoos on or near their erogenous zones (breasts, labia, ass) are the kinds of broads who will cut you with a knife.

[...]

The only good thing about tattoos and piercings is that they signal which girls you can bang with minimal effort. If you're looking to make a girl wince during anal on the first date, pick the one with a tramp stamp or a tongue piercing. But if you're looking for a girl you can wife up, go for the ones who haven't mangled their bodies beyond repair.

Parents are Under Attack

Families are under attack in America. Children don't belong in public schools. If there's a mark on your child, the school nurse (known as a “mandatory reporter”) will call CPS and the State confiscates your kids forever. Even if a child gets hurt playing, a parent will likely be blamed and charged with abuse. God forbid that you actually spank your child when they misbehave. CPS will take your children from you. It happens every day. You'll lose your kids forever.

The United Nations is planning to take control over America's children. Good parents lose their children every day in America, because of CPS thugs who think they are God. Even yelling at your child is considered mental cruelty and abuse nowadays. It's insane! Hell will be hot enough!

We are at war ladies and gentleman. The Devil is urinating in our spiritual milk and defecating in our spiritual meat. Yet, insanely, most pastors and their congregations are eating it up and asking for seconds! Why eat the food borne illness of the maggot-infested New International Version (NIV), when you can feast on the delicious porterhouse steak of the King James Bible? It is tragic that the average pastor has never spent an hour researching the Bible version debate, whereas secular restaurant mangers spend a week attending Food Manager's class (which I did years ago). Perhaps America's pastors should be required to attend a spiritual food manager's class before they enter the ministry, to make sure they don't poison their church congregation with contaminated food!!!

Quote# 104201

SIX NATIONS, Ont. — ­ For Laurie Hill, resident of Canada’s largest aboriginal community, it’s just wrong to suggest that modern medicine is the only way to treat cancer and other serious diseases.

She stands firmly behind the Six Nations neighbours who took their 11-year-old daughter with leukemia out of chemotherapy, and are treating her with traditional, but unproven, native methods and other alternative health-care instead.

“There’s a fear of [aboriginal remedies] or denial of it. If things can’t be quantified or qualified, to them it’s irrelevant,” said Ms. Hill, as she shopped at Ancestral Voices Healing Centre Thursday. “Who are they [doctors] to say she will make it with their treatments. Just because they have a degree, that makes them more knowledgeable?”

Her perspective on what seems to be a widening cultural divide received some recognition from a surprising quarter Thursday: ­the judge deciding whether the cancer-stricken girl should be forced back into chemotherapy.

As an extraordinary court case in nearby Brantford moved toward an end, a lawyer for McMaster Children’s Hospital argued that child-welfare authorities should have used their power to require the young woman to stay in treatment. With chemo, childhood leukemia now has a survival rate in the range of 90%, and remains a likely death sentence without it, experts say.

But Justice Gethin Edward of the Ontario Court of Justice suggested physicians essentially want to “impose our world view on First Nation culture.” The idea of a cancer treatment being judged on the basis of statistics that quantify patients’ five-year survival rate is “completely foreign” to aboriginal ways, he said.

“Even if we say there is not one child who has been cured of acute lymphoblastic leukemia by traditional methods, is that a reason to invoke child protection?” asked Justice Edward, noting that the girl’s mother believes she is doing what is best for her daughter.

“Are we to second guess her and say ‘You know what, we don’t care?’ … Maybe First Nations culture doesn’t require every child to be treated with chemotherapy and to survive for that culture to have value."

[...]

Back at Six Nations, meanwhile, Ancestral Voices employee Hayley Doxtater said aboriginal remedies are becoming increasingly popular. She pointed to a cancer treatment — a collection of herbs including slippery elm and turkey rhubarb root ­ — that she said one customer has repeatedly traveled an hour from Toronto to buy for a sick friend.
“We have people come in here who are so happy that something works,” she said. “They’ll say ‘That stuff is amazing.’ “

Barack Osama praises Bill Maher's new movie 'Religulous'!!

I'm going to be producing a movie called "Evil-ution" in response to Religulous. During the course of this film, the audience will see me travel around, interviewing various supporters of Darwin's Theory of Evil-ution, such as university professors, scientists, liberal politicians, artists, etc., and in the process, exposing their stupidity, and giving the audience some damn good laughs at all these atheists! When the shoe is on the other foot, it wouldn't seem so funny then, at least, it wouldn't seem so funny to the atheists. My people, on the other hand, would find it extremely amusing, and deeply satsifying.

I would make sure that all churches received free tickets to the movie, which the church could then sell to members of its congregation, as a way to raise funds. You see the difference between religion and evil-ution is that evil-ution is entirely fictional and was made up to control your life, to make you subservient to all those who have power. Religion, on the other hand, was arrived at through observation and research. Only Christianity has the power to free the human race from the chains of reason and logic!


I can picture it now, whenever one of those atheistic scientists said something stupid such as, "The dinosaurs became extinct several million years before humans walked on the Earth. The two species never lived together on this planet". Then all of us Christians sitting in the front row would just start laughing our asses off! We'd be rolling around in the floor, holding on to our sides, peeing in our pants, begging the projectionist to stop the film!

imagine with me. whenever a woman is raped, every man within 20 miles of where the rape occurred is presumed to be a rapist, an accomplice, an egger-onner, an enabler, or completely disinterested (in protecting women from rape). they are all rounded up and jailed.

because it would be stressful for all women involved if there were any uncertainty regarding whether the men would be released or not — if the men were “coming home” or if they would ever again be “walking the streets to rape again” — to relieve womens stress, the answer would be NO, none of them will be released, ever. all the women would go on with their lives and never look back. there wouldnt be any prison-visits either. (feel the relief wash over you like a warm bath?)

if there was a problem of prison overcrowding (can you imagine the logistical problems we would encounter if we actually started punishing men for rape?) well thats easy — let all the newbies i mean “new fish” sleep in the recreational areas until a spot opens up. start a “communication initiative” whereby all prisoners would be given a new mont blanc pen and a letter opener and instructed to write letters to other prisoners around the country, like a pen-pal kind of thing. watch them all kill each other with the pens and letter openers. overcrowding? no longer an issue.

[...]

if we actually punished men for raping girls and women, without regard for fairness to men, and *only* caring about fairness to women and relieving womens stress, and centering womens survival as a sexual class, including the complete eradication of rapey males and rape culture, female separatism would no longer present the logistical problem it once did — “mens culture” would become prison culture. it already is, you see. under conditions of zero tolerance for men raping women, we would have “womens culture” and female separatism by default. it probably wouldnt take but a year at most for (nearly?) every single man to be rounded up and imprisoned for raping or contributing to the rape of a woman, if we actually punished men for rape, and contributing to rape.

thats literally all it would take to create female separatism: justice. thats all.

Quote# 104196

Reverend Billy Graham, arguably the most well-known and respected evangelical preacher of the last 50 years, said in a recently published commentary that America was “founded by men who believed in prayer” and that prayer can turn “the tide of history,” adding that while “America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah” and deserves “the judgment of God,” this judgment can be lessened through prayer.

“Even though America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah ever were, and as deserving of the judgment of God, God would spare us if we were earnestly praying, with hearts that had been cleansed and washed by the blood of Christ,” said Rev. Graham in his commentary for Decision magazine, published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

“The problems of the world will never be settled unless our national leaders go to God in prayer,” he said. “If only they would discover the power and wisdom that there is in reliance upon God, we could soon see the solution to the grave problems that face the world!”

[...]

Reverend Graham’s comments start off in saying, “Our nation was founded by men who believed in prayer,” and notes that Benjamin Franklin, in addressing the 1787 Constitutional Convention, said that “God governs in the affairs of men.”

“Today the world is being carried on a rushing torrent of history that is sweeping out of control,” said Rev. Graham. “There is but one power available to redeem the course of events, and that is the power of prayer by God-fearing, Christ-believing people.”

He continued, “One of the reasons the United Nations has become so ineffective in handling world situations is that there is no prayer, no recognition of God. Unless the leaders of nations turn to God in prayer, their best plans will fail, just as did the plans of those who built the tower of Babel.”

Rev. Graham then noted numerous instances from the Bible where people “turned the tide of history by prayer.” For example, he notes, Elisha prayed and a young man was raised from the dead; Jesus prayed and Lazarus rose from the dead; the thief on the cross next to Jesus prayed and Jesus told him he would go to paradise that day; John Wesley prayed and religious fervor grew in England, and the same happened with Johnathan Edwards in Northampton.

“I tell you, history could be altered and changed again if people went to their knees in believing prayer,” said Rev. Graham.

If religion was not real then why would people insist on atheism? I do not want to stereotype but most athiests i have met were gays. Yet they fail to notice that when they engage in sexual activity that goes against procreation they take part in a ritual that worships baal peor. Their flag has a relative symbol of that on the belly of baphomet (where a woman bears her child) thus being against procreation. If symbolism did not have such a powerful influence, would it be ok for your children to attend a kindergarten with nazi symbols all over the walls?

There are many people in this world who go about their day everyday without acknowledging their spirituality. Alot of people in this world are comfortable with this, some have never acknowledged measurement of themselves physically, emotionally, and in this case spiritually.

I have tested god in many ways, many sinful ways, when 'coincidences' happen too often i believe it is a miracle or the work of a spiritual being (oohh weee ooohh) My head was 10cm away from being crushed by a SUV type porsche while crossing great south road i tripped over. I have never believed in luck and i believe just as there is a god there is the devil or people involved in the devils work.

Pakistani court has upheld the death sentence of a Christian woman who was convicted for blasphemy in 2010 after a row with a group of Muslim women over a glass of water.


Asia Bibi, a 50-year-old mother of five, had appealed before the Lahore High Court against the ruling, in which she was found guilty of insulting Islam's Prophet Muhammad, but the court rejected her appeal Thursday, her lawyer said.


Sardar Mushtaq, a defence lawyer, said she would appeal to the country's Supreme Court.


"We have the right to appeal in 30 days, and we will continue this legal battle by approaching the Supreme Court of Pakistan," Mr Mushtaq said.


"We have a strong case, and we will try our best to save her life," he told The Associated Press.

Mrs Bibi was arrested after Muslim women told a cleric in a village in the eastern Punjab province that she had made "derogatory remarks" about the prophet.

He said the trouble began when the women objected to Mrs Bibi using their drinking glass because she was not a Muslim, setting off a heated verbal exchange.

Mrs Bibi's case drew global criticism in 2011 when Pakistan's minister for minorities Shahbaz Bhatti and eastern Punjab Governor Salman Taseer were killed for supporting her and opposing blasphemy laws.

Taseer was killed in the capital Islamabad by one of his police guards after visiting Bibi in jail.

Bhati was killed months later by the Pakistani Taliban, who called him an "infidel Christian."

International and local human rights groups have called for amending blasphemy laws introduced by the military dictator Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq in 1980s.

In a statement Thursday, Amnesty International called for Mrs Bibi's release.

"This is a grave injustice," said David Griffiths, Amnesty's Deputy Asia Pacific Director. He said there were serious concerns about the fairness of the trial.

"Her mental and physical health has reportedly deteriorated badly during the years she has spent in almost total isolation on death row. She should be released immediately and the conviction should be quashed," he said.

Under Pakistani blasphemy laws, insulting the Koran or the Prophet Muhammad can be punished with life imprisonment or death. Experts say the laws often are exploited for personal gain.

Pakistan imposed a moratorium on executions in 2008 and has never executed anyone convicted of blasphemy. Instead, such cases usually linger on appeal.

"If that were even remotely true, then the majority of scientists"

The scientific community has been controlled by evolutionists since the 1050's. They discriminate against anyone putting forth evidence that does not conform to evo fantasy. This is not evidence for evolution, but an argument based upon an appeal of the majority, and in this case, it is incalid.

"Evolution has mountains of evidence"

Not a shred. Science destroys evolutionsim.
