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.
Ha. And if this rape results in a pregnancy, you can do anything to the baby you'd like to do the rapist.
Obama may be drunk on power; I wonder what we posters are drunk on?
Alprova, pushing for and signing a 2000+ page bill that has generated 10,000+ pages of regulations obviously takes power from Main Street and gives it to bureaucrats; and health and health insurance are not things our Constitution gives Congress power to regulate, unlike, say, privately owned and operated warships, which Congress may indeed regulate.
For extra scrutiny, they put just one man (?) on the job to check out 200+ organizations, some of which went over 3 years with no verdict? That looks more like intentional delay than extra scrutiny. And I hear some Christian group was asked how it prayed! Psalm 58 anyone?
Well, your phones are probably safe from the Justice Department, since this paper's excellencies do not extend to national security scoops, but our President is trying to force healthy young people to pay sicker and older people to be sick, so there seems scope for a GOP youth movement.
The following questions, though somewhat loaded, do deserve answers. Perhaps alprova and nucanuck will oblige.
Why'd he hide the birth certificate? (Probably to stir up trouble.) Why's he still hiding his school records? To hide low grades or claims of Kenyan birth?
Re Benghazi, do we yet know who refused the added security the ambassador had asked for? Do we yet know what the President was told about the attack while it was in progress, and where he was and what he was doing all the time it was proceeding? Could the military have done anything if ordered to try something--sent in F-18s to strafe, perhaps? Why was the attack blamed on a lousy, unseen movie? Is the jailing of the movie's maker politically motivated? Was K'daffy's government safer than the current one? Is Egypt's new government more peaceable and better on civil rights for minorities than Mubarak's government? Is Syria likely to improve in those regards if the current rebels take power? Do/did any of those places need regime change as badly as North Korea does?
Did IRS people lie to Congress, denying targeting of Tea people although they knew of such targeting?
For perspective, how many people died in Watergate?
Has Obama? Spending like a hockey stick?
