Not seeing something because it is invisible and not seeing something because it is not actually there, can appear the same to the viewer.
Ah, you're using the Royal we.
Not in this case. chetgunkle stated it as if this is an issue specifically with Trump supporters. Drizzt was clarifying this happens with any relatively popular candidate. Its a valid point. You just want dismiss it because we apparently can't discuss anyone but Trump.
Check out Germaine's blogs if you really want to be blown away by Ponzi. Not your father's
exactly, but thats not until nothing exists
Well at least he can spell.
So, Iran and Iraq squabbling back and forth, Saudis, Syria, Yemen ... Shall I go on? Lottsa fighting back and forth.
He better polish up his resume and start sending it out. His days with Trump are numbered now.
In a general sense yes, we do give all glory to God but that doesn?t mean we don?t also give credit where it is due. For example, when I was in a hospital a few years back having multiple surgeries I did give the ultimate credit to God for setting up my recovery but that doesn?t mean I didn?t also give the doctors and nurses a high amount of credit and gratitude for their roles as well. They worked hard to be able to do what they do and deserve credit for it. If you?re talking about salvation then yes, God gets all the credit for that because it?s a gift that only he can give. Wouldn?t make sense to thank someone else for it.
I don't see a proposal as taking the spotlight for *himself* but it does distract from the graduation itself. It's a double whammy for the girl - which can be fun, or it can be too much.
None of which would prohibit sale of the bible at book stores.
I have. You're wrong.
Nope to all of it.
A forum with only a few lefties is bound to seem biased towards the right. Why do you suppose there are so few lefties left here, could it be that they simply burned out from constantly having to stand up for the Liberals? Spinning and deflecting from all those foibles takes a toll on even the most ardent Liberal supporter.
Well Hallelujah! The Christian has just as much right to decline as well.
When I reference understanding prejudice, I remember in the 80's, my grandfather needing stitches because he had to hold a friend back who wanted to fight Japanese visitors to their automotive plant. This man, who I knew and I would hardly describe as racist, quite the opposite actually, but he had fought in the pacific in WW2 and had been a POW. Even in his 50's or 60's by that point, he still held a deep hatred for the Japanese. I am not saying it is necessarily acceptable, but I can understand it. I don't believe this is something cherished, but it is often deep ceded because of experiences or learned beliefs and behavior. Many older people today, the Fox News Demo, were born before or during the Civil Rights era and may have had parents or community leaders that taught them integration was wrong. Most will acknowledge that equality was the right thing to do, but they only came around on it, it wasn't something they had championed. Many of these same people even after the fact, loathed people like Ali or Jane Fonda because they were taught that these people were anti-American (Fonda I more understand). I am not saying this is at all acceptable, only that these are people and they are flawed, they aren't inherently evil or immoral in most cases. Belief and indoctrination leads people to advocate abhorrent things and isn't isolated only to religion but can be found in cultural teachings and beliefs. An example is that It seems a lot of far right conservatives only come around on gay rights when they have a gay relative. It was the experience that opened their beliefs up for change.
Admit defeat I demand it or I shall lay down the gauntlet
from ira to you...
And I have explained to you that doing that within channel discussions is not that proper place to address these issues.
Too bad that you wouldn't know if the Bible is wrong, since you start with the conclusion that it couldn't be wrong.
I don't think you know what textual criticism is. Define textual criticism. I bet you don't know what it means or how it's used.
Same lol, I put that in there because people assume female. I mean its not an insult or anything, so I rarely correct folks.
