Most bombable church? The IRS has been trying to bomb the Tea Party.
http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/20... The IRS's own inspector general found some of the questions the IRS asked the Chattanooga Tea Party inappropriate. The IRS spent 18 months over the application and demanded a reply in three weeks.
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/irs-conservative-group-2009-members-pray-193833144.html More precisely, IRS asked a prolife group how its prayers outside an abortuary were educational.
AL version of NR version of IRS excuses: We didn't target people who say big government is unmanageable for saying big government is unmanageable. We targeted them because big government is unmanageable.
Alpo, Did you read the questionnaires you posted links to? They include questions such as, You seem to be connected with XYZ Patriot group: tell us all about them, including their federal employer identification number. List your directors and where they work. Provide copies of all materials you've distributed or posted. (I tried to copy from one to paste here, but it wasn't friendly.)
Jesus hung out with tax collectors. And prostitutes. Some of them repented.
Free-market prices convey information. That O'Romneycare is raising insurance premiums--and the HHS secretary is asking insurance companies to pay for ads FOR O'Romneycare--shows us it's not all it's cracked up to be. But yeah, let (make) hospitals post their charges. Likewise other medical providers. Probably insurance providers too (and let them charge for contraceptives as they see fit).
Since prices convey information, when the government forces prices to be changed the government is forcing lies to be told.
Sean Hannity says President Obama met with an IRS leader the day before the hassling of tea party groups started. Will the most transparent administration in history put the President and the IRS person, and any witnesses, on the stand under oath to tell what went on at that meeting? What can be private about a meeting between the CEO of our country and one of his administrators?
Spending 1100 days waiting for the IRS to make up its mind is "tall tales"? Being asked how your pray is "tall tales"? (Doesn't the Constitution forbid religious tests?)
The Tea Party distances itself from people who think deficits don't matter, that sustainability doesn't matter, that Social Security and Medicare being broke doesn't matter.
Do the ag ungagged watchdogs have to read their targets their Miranda rights?
Does your liberal editress know the Obama administration has indicted twice as many leakers (6) as all previous administrations combined (3)?
Hating sin is weird. God wants "a peculiar people, zealous to do good works."
Benny Goodman wore the gray flannel suit and played the saxophone with great skill. As my friend Dave Bird wrote in the Pulse (?) some years back, just because art is ugly doesn't mean it's original or creative, and just because it's done within a tradition doesn't mean it lacks value--"I'm gonna stand as close to EmmyLou Harris as I can get" (at Riverbend.) Being peculiar, of course, does not guarantee closeness to God either. Nor bar it.
I do know of a church that served beer at a public block party--pastor Burke Shade, Carbondale Illinois.
Good morning, alprova, and Happy Pentecost Sunday (to all). "When He is come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.."
Some rape victims accept their children. My wife bore children in an abusive situation before I married her, so I'm looking in from closer than you may have assumed.
Women whose pregnancies raise problems who hesitate to write off their babies may try Choices Womens Resource Center, 423-267-7943.
Expound the justice of burning baby's skin off but not rapist's, feeding baby to a vacuum cleaner but not rapist, cutting baby's spine and keeping body parts around the office...Expound how murdering a baby will make a rape victim feel better...(I think Choices offers post-abortion counseling and groups among other services.) It's good news, and for me for reasons I see from inside, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
And there are some false accusations of rape: Tawana Brawley, the Duke lacrosse team...I think some of the Tailhook convention accusers had been to several Tailhook conventions (and one had signed a note to a man she later accused reading "You made me see God;" I don't think she was referring to his religious abilities.) Are false accusers of rape treated as rapists?
Repent from fornication and the rape problem will shrink way down.
