"The Earth is billions of years old. The geologic column is the way to interpret it, and Charles Darwin's evolution is right." That is what they teach in order to be a good communist. Did you know that Russian teachers come to America to study education because the American educational system is considered the best in the world for teaching students these three principals. This prepares them to be good communists and to doubt the word of God.

Your son in law, being a Jew and knowing no better, probably doesn't have the holy spirit. The test for this is asking him wether he can speak in tongues.

The correct response (if homeschooling is not an option) is a premature but detailed lesson on the real world:

Some adults lie about important things.
Some adults are mistaken about important things.
No, boys cannot become girls, either by choice or by accident. There is nothing to worry about.
No, girls cannot become boys, either by choice or by accident. There is nothing to worry about.
Boys and girls are not allowed to ask questions about this at school because sensible questions will get them in trouble with people who enjoy getting angry.

Can you tell whether you are a boy or a girl? How? Your classmate doesn’t understand this, and because their parents are also confused, you will get in trouble if you try to explain it.

I could go on, but the best response to wrong information is the truth, in all the detail that is necessary.

[Answer to a question about why theists place the burden of proof on atheists. Notice there is 4 logical fallacies in a row in his answer.]

The world exists; presumably God made it. People have believed that for thousands of years. The vast majority of us still believe it. So the burden of proof is on YOU to disprove it.

Quote# 67522

The New York City cab driver accused of booting a gay couple from his car for hugging said that he was terrified the men were about to have sex, and his boss added that being a Muslim made the situation especially difficult to handle.

Medhat Mohamed faces penalties and possible license revocation for ejecting Paul Bruno and his partner from the car in Manhattan after driving only two blocks Monday night, citing their displays of affection toward each other.

"I wanted to pay attention to getting them to their destination instead of worrying if they were going to have sex or not," Mohamed told the New York Post on Wednesday.

The driver said he told Bruno and his partner that they could remain in the car if they stopped touching, but Bruno denies he made the offer.

Mahmoud Elnefnawy, who owns the taxi medallion used by Mohamed, suggested that his Islamic religion was the reason, telling the New York Post, “in our religion, we can't handle that stuff."

"There's no kissing allowed in the cab,” said Elnefnawy. “A man has to be a man."

Quote# 110169

Yes, this is what they are doing..making people resentful. While the polls show that most think gay marriage is okay, I am betting a lot of them would not vote for it. We didn't here in liberal California -- TWICE. And judges overruled us. That causes resentment.

They think they won, and they won the battle, but they have not won the war, as resentment in this country will grow. We don't make a fuss like liberals or gays, etc, but we will hopefully get even at the ballot box.

At this point, it isn't even about gay marriage. Two of those supreme court members are gay activists and would not recuse themselves. One of them is probably a dyke. And what about states' rights? Are we going to have to have another Civil War over States' Rights?

Hopefully, a republican will change the courts somehow to correct a problem of this type, where it is not up to the supreme justice as to whether they are recused or not...that there would be certain rules and if they are an activist regarding an upcoming case, they would automatically be kicked to the curb. BTW, if this applies to the conservative justices with something in the future, I also agree they should not be on the court to try cases in which they are activists and should be dismissed.

And hopefully Scalia will live to be 150.

obamacare...well, they won nothing at all on this one either. People are finding out what is in it, they are angry. obama saved face. He won the battle - lost the war because his legacy will show that people really hate obamacare. Remember what Giffen (I think that is his name) said -- that they could put this over on people because they are stupid. THAT should be obama's legacy.

Churches and some Temples will not want to pay for abortions. The Hyde Act provided they would not have to and yet, obamacare which was supposed to remove that part of it (obama promised ha ha ha ha ha)...and they didn't. So there will still be a mess, and I can tell you right now, Catholic churches are not going to pay for abortions. There will be civil disobedience.

And again, the people who like it are the people who get it for free or the rich liberals. The middle class hate it. They are putting off going to doctors because of the huge deductibles. They are angry. Hopefully that will get them to the ballot box again in 2016.

This post is partly a FYI follow-up to two previous threads (see below), and also looking for advice or opinions on the situation.

Very brief summary version: My boyfriend "Greg" has 3 children with his ex-wife "Susan." Susan is remarried to a man I'll call "Stepfather." Stepfather pleaded no contest to child molestation charges involving an unrelated 13-year-old girl, and will be sentenced in a month. This is a felony and requires lifelong sex offender registration. What should Greg do





Where do the kids want to be? I'm not saying it should be entirely up to them, but if this is an isolated incident, is it worth uprooting them across state lines, losing all their friends and schools and social networks, not to mention a stay at home mother, to come live with a dad who works full time? They've already indicated that they love their stepfather and want him to live with them once.

Quote# 67273

(small quote from very long essay)

I am an Extra-Terrestrial. I am here, but I am not of this planet. There is no place on this earth that is my home; there are only fortifications that provide shelter from the raging storm.

I am here only by God's will, His design, and His Grace. I did not choose this assignment -- as I had no say in the matter -- but I will carry out this assignment to the best of my ability and leave that to the leading of the Holy Spirit that indwells me. I take my orders from the command of the Most High, as I am a warrior and a peacemaker, a sinner and a saint.

Although I am an extra-terrestrial, I am in human form. I am of flesh, blood, and bone. While I am a warrior, an am not invincible and I can and do break. While I am a peacemaker, I stage a daily crusade of righteousness that has love as its foundation and yet thirsts for justice. Yes, I am a sinner -- and I am the worst -- but because I have accepted the gift of eternal life that Jesus so freely offered me I am a saint; despite my grievous flaws and chronic stumbling.

My, oh my, this human form is so limiting. I cannot fly just yet. I can't go from here to there in a nano-second. I cannot do complex mathematical equations without the use of calculator! And yet, it's these human senses that allow me to enjoy the sights, sounds, feelings, tastes, and aromas that are the benefits that this earth has to offer.

Ah, but these human emotions are the worst. These human emotions cause pain. And yet, I wouldn't trade these emotions for the finest house anywhere on this earth. It is these emotions that make the entire human experience so enriching for an extra-terrestrial! They make me just like you...because I am like you!

["Modern medicine actually treats both symptoms (various painkillers) and causes (antibiotics), as well as act preventative manner (such as vaccines). Your assertion is based on no real knowledge of the field of modern medicine."]

Bacteria or for the matter of fact any germ is not the cause of disease. It's the environment which plays the decisive role

Louis Pasteur on his death bed recanted the germ theory of disease and said, "If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat---unhealthy tissue---rather than being the cause of unhealthy tissue."

Regarding a Satanist group holding a black mass at Oklahoma City's Civic Center Music Hall

“Even though tickets are being sold for this event as if it were merely some sort of dark entertainment, this satanic ritual is deadly serious,” Coakley wrote.

“I am especially concerned about the dark powers that this satanic worship invites into our community and the spiritual danger that this poses to all who are involved in it, directly or indirectly,” the archbishop said in his letter.

“Since it seems this event will not be canceled,” he said, “I am calling on all Catholics of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to counteract this challenge to faith and decency through prayer and penance.”

TOO OFTEN PEOPLE SAY THEY HAVE SPOKEN TO THE DEAD. THE LATE JAMES A. PIKE, A PROMINENT EPISCOPALIAN BISHOP, STATED HE TALKED TO HIS DEAD SON, JIM. ACCORDING TO PIKE, HIS SON TOLD HIM: "I HAVE MASSES OF PEOPLE AROUND ME, AND HAND LIFTING ME UP, AS IT WERE...I WAS SO UNHAPPY UNTIL I COULD MAKE YOU KNOW."
SUCH EXPERIENCES ARE WAY TO COMMON, THEREFORE, IT IS APPARENT THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN WITH SOMEONE FROM THE SPIRIT WORLD. THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR ABOUT THIS WHEN IT STATES: "AS FOR THE DEAD, THEY ARE CONSCIOUS OF NOTHING AT ALL." (ECCLESIASTES9:5) SO IF IT IS NOT THE DEAD WHO ARE SPEAKING FROM THE SPIRIT WORLD, WHO ARE SPEAKING. WHO ARE MAKE-BELIEVING TO BE THESE DEAD PERSONS?
WICKED SPIRITS ARE, OF COURSE. THESE SPIRITS, OR DEMONS, ARE THOSE ANGELS WHO BECAME UNITED WITH SATAN IN REBELLION AGAINST THE ALMIGHTY GOD. BUT WHY DO THEY PRETEND TO BE PERSONS WHO HAVE DIED? THE IDEA IS TO ADVANCE THE SUGGESTION THAT THE DEAD ARE STILL LIVING SOMEWHERE ELSE. THIS TALKING TO THE DEAD OR (WICKED SPIRITS) HAVE ALSO LED MANY TO BELIEVE THE LIE THAT DEATH IS ONLY TRANSFERRING TO SOME OTHER LIFE. TO SPREAD THIS LIE, WICKED SPIRITS USE SPIRIT MEDIUMS, FORTUNE-TELLERS AND SORCERERS WITH SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE THAT ONLY SEEMS TO COME FORM PERSONS WHO HAVE DIED.

Charles [Barkley], when I walk into the women’s restroom at work, it’s called “sexual harassment” even if I don’t say anything to them. That’s because I’m attracted to women.

What do you call it when a gay man is in the locker room with men, Chuck? I’ll give you a hint: same thing.””

The goal is to allow the deviants, full, unhindered, access to the object of their sick obsession.

Quote# 92731

There was a big fuss recently in Sweden about lasagna and burgers containing horse meat. Sweden is atheist heaven, and so there shouldn’t be any hard and fast table manners—other than “if it tastes good, eat it.” So why aren’t cats and horses on restaurant menus in most countries? It’s because Judeo/Christian nations base what is right and wrong to eat on the rules God gave to the Jews. But if atheism has its way, we can expect restaurants to expand their menus to include eagle-wings, double-double whale burgers, fresh cat casseroles, and tasty little kitten fingers. When any nation forsakes God, it defaults to mob rule (what society dictates) and that can go anywhere it wants.

Quote# 111540

We are witnessing something far more sinister than the ancient pagan world's excursion into the offering of children to be burned in the fires of the idol known as Molech.

Today's version of the "fires of Molech" is more sadistic and wicked than the ancients could have imagined, because it is now done under the cover of "law." One man out of a band of nine cast the deciding vote for Roe v. Wade in 1973 and since then the waves of unborn children have met their doom to the grand figure of 55 million and counting. This is the "law"? If Molech were actually a real and living deity - he would be delighted.

The rest of the world's nations mandate abortions out of fear (overpopulation) but they are no slouches in honoring the idol of Molech. In China, it is reported that upwards of 336 million abortions have been performed since 1971. The latest twist from the Orient is reportedly eating the remains of aborted babies in a soul which is thought to rejuvenate youthfulness in those who practice this kind of cannibalism.

[...]

In the East it is abortion and sterilization to avoid overpopulation. Is the West's answer homosexual marriage, how many children come out of that perverted arrangement?

[...]

Hidden under the mounds of dirt called "politically correct speech" and "cultural diversity" can be found fossils of human wisdom and better judgment. Let's dig there - because political correctness, compromise and election rhetoric are lousy substitutes for a real conscience.

No one, including Donald Trump, who is not willing to make a full frontal attack against all abortion and perverted same sex marriage, is any more than a paper tiger vying for our votes based on a better deal than Barack Obama. America needs more than a substitute for Obama; we need a first class statesman with a full blown conscience.
