"I understand that Obama's approval rating is unchanged." Fugitiveguy
His approval rating is not going to change. As long as the handouts are coming, why should they care if he is the biggest liar around.
When have not true Christians not been persecuted, Christians have been persecuted from the very beginning. James the Disciple and Stephen were killed very early on as written in the Book of Acts . All the Disciples were martyred except possibly John. Then the Romans persecuted the Christians without mercy, torturing and killing many for sport. Even as late as the 1500s the Roman Catholic Church was burning Christians at the stake as being heretics. And of course it was because of persecution the Pilgrims and Puritans, not to mention the Quakers came and settled this very Country. Anybody that believes the Crusades and Nazi Germany’s treatment of Jews were “Christian” activities needs to read a little history, and also the New Testament. Interesting a Christian martyr is an innocent person minding their own business and is killed, while an Islamic martyr is someone that goes out of their way to kill an usually innocent person.
Thatcher - You've got three 'scandals' and probably couldn't tell me why they matter.
I’ll take this one for Thatcher. It is because the President of the United States Obama continually lies about his knowledge of each and every one of these events. 1. Benghazi and the terrorist attacks, and the blaming of an innocent person who is still in jail. 2. The tapping of personal phones of the AP News Service and who knows who else. 3. The IRS giving the information on American citizens’ tax records for the use of political (democrat) elections.
The fact that most of the people involved in all three of these will never really be scrutinized or punished: Obama, Holder, Geithner, Clinton and a host of other lesser known corrupt officials.
I guess if one has no problem with being lied to because of political party, this is all acceptable in todays screwed-up world and one should be ready to reap the rewards of what one sowed. Just please do not whine about social justice anymore.
A side note as there is a Moore County connection to this, Tamerlane the Cruel’s capital was Samarakand. Not the one in Eagle Springs, but in Uzbekistan.
@Thatcher: Thanks for the kind greeting, we live in a time of lost manners. I had saved this article and thought you might enjoy it knowing of your interest in economics.
The New Untouchables of the 21st Century
It does have a bearing on the above topic because of the lack of employment for young people in these Middle Eastern Countries, due to whatever reasons, and seems to drive these endless conflicts. As the old saying goes “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop”.
Good old Ishmael. Read all about the origins of this ongoing saga in Genesis 16:12. There is nothing new under the Sun.
This is just two days ago from the BBC.
“The UK has withdrawn some embassy staff in Libya in response to "ongoing political uncertainty", the Foreign Office says.” Seems gunmen are blocking the entrances.
Also the French Embassy was car bombed last month.
I suppose the youtube video has been released on dvd.
All is well. Just get ready for the Summer of Recovery Part 4, or is that 5.
New International Version (NIV)
Mark 7:20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”
If you notice, the above story or advertisement, or whatever it is has no author. Most likely someone had written this and slid it under the front door of the Pilot's office where John Nagen (Please see TF121 ‘s comment on “The Pilot Announces Changes to Paper, Website) had stumbled over it.
Mr. Levy: Certainly appreciate your thought-out columns for the last couple of months.
In God’s Word, The Bible, it is written:
The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:9 NIV translation
Human emotion and logic can never comprehend the reasons of the senseless, violent acts of a person against another person. Excuses can be given, and as a lawyer you well know the culprits can be made the victim, but the fact is people are born with a sinful state of being, and will continue to do these atrocities no matter what law is made. Humanity is not improving and getting kinder and gentler. Christ Jesus said people will become cold, insensitive and calloused.
Matthew 24:11,12, “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
Fortunately Jesus did not say all the love would grow cold or die.
