LSM: "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"?
Are you insane?
What religeon do you think the Crusaders were?
What religeons do you think were predominant in Germany in the 1930s & the 1940s?
What do you think is the translation of the phrase "Gott mit uns" on the beltbuckles of Whermacht troops?
Sorry but Christians don't have an exclusive either as far as being persecuted and surely
have done their share of persecuting and more so spare us the holier than thou act.
"What goes around comes around".
"History repeats itself".
Two simple ways of expressing the same thought concerning reality,ie:.the only thing that changes is who is doing the persecuting and who is being persecuted.
No opposing values or rewriting morality, except in your self righteous imagination and indignation.
"nothingspecial": you need to both outgrow useless "liberal" and "conservative' labels and try hard to understand my point, the simple concept that history repeats itself .
Read what I wrote: "Religeous persecution stinks, period. Doesn't matter where or by whom".
Many people of different religeons, ethnicities or race suffer persecution and/or
persecute others of differing religeons, ethnicities or race..
Been that way since the world began, hasn't changed.
What does change is who is suffering persecution and who is doing the persecuting on any given day in any given place.
The original letter and the book it cites are concerned with persecution of "Christians".
Tahrir Square is a physical location, nothing more and nothing less, and the statements that were made there and cited here were made without reference to their continuing validity despite Thatchers carrying on to the contrary.
Religious persecution stinks, period.
Doesn't matter where or by whom.
It is interesting however that what goes around comes around.
The Spanish Inquisition, the Salem Witch trials and KKK cross burnings deserve an honorable mention along with the Crusades and the Holocaust.
Mr. Krause, you are 100% correct.
Every time anything appears in the media concerning aviation, aircraft or airports it's either completely wrong, mis-identified, speculation or fluff.
Welcome to the club.
The Pilot would be well advised to take advantage of the expertise that exists in the community when it comes to reporting events of this type or incidents that require some technical expertise to understand and explain..
"Hubris" commonly defined as extreme pride and/or arrogance, a loss of contact with reality, an over estimation of ones own compitence or capabilities.
Perfectly describes "fugitiveguy", the amazingly misnamed "Spocks_Brain", now joined by "pulledpork".
Rhoades column discussed "red lines" and the pros and cons of setting same, not "Obamacare" or Benghazi,
Folks need to focus, try to stay oriented as to time and place, hard though it may be..
If Spock were real, rather than a character played by Leonard Nemoy, he would look at the rants by "Spocks_Brain" and suggest that the usurpation of his name and all it suggests by an intellectual dwarf is "interesting"...or, despite years of training to the contrary, laugh himself sick.
The exchange between "fugitiveguy" and "Spocks_Brain" and their individual posts make Beavis and Butthead appear, by comparison, intellectual giants.
The Israeli prime minister, Netanyahu, during his address to the UN, used a red pen to draw a line across a cartoon depicting the stages of development of an Iranian nuclear weapon.
Nothing to do with Syria.
Israel has taken steps to prevent Syrian weapons being transferred to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Israel has also said that Iran can not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons but has not identified a specific "red line" beyond which it would take overt action.
The point made in the column is that no matter what course of action the Obama administration takes it will be said to be wrong by the Republicans whothenselves have failed to offer any useful suggestions.
Dustys columns appear to consistently draw more comments than most if not all others.
Intelligent commentary with humor.
As long as his column appears on Sundays I'll keep my subscription plus his responding to many of the more lurid online comments about articles both he and others have written is more than worth the price of admission.
