  1. Trying to help the misguided one person at a time. These two premises you made are wrong but they are constantly thrown out there like the annual egging of the neighbor's house on Halloween. “You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” (Exodus 20:4)—in order to keep the Catholic faithful in darkness as to the truth that they should not have statues in their churches. Despite appearances, we know Exodus 20 is not a prohibition against making “any likeness of anything” in a strict sense because we clearly see God either commanding or praising the making of images and statues in multiple biblical texts (see Exodus 25:18; Numbers 21:8-9; I Kings 6:23-28, 9:3). Just five chapters after this so-called prohibition against statues, for example, God commands Moses to make statues representing two angels to be placed over the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant: And you shall make two cherubim of gold… The cherubim shall spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, their faces one to another…. And you shall put the mercy seat on the top of the ark… There I will meet with you (Ex. 25:18-22). There are five key points to be made concerning this common misunderstanding among Protestants as well as many quasi-Christian sects. https://www.catholic.com/magazine/online-edition/did-the-catholic-church-change-the-ten-commandments “Catechism” comes from a Greek word, Katecheo, which simply means “to teach.” "Lutherans, Anglicans, Presbyterians, and many other groups use a catechism. Martin Luther developed the Small Catechism, still used by Lutherans today, after going on a tour of the parishes under his care, and realizing how desperately they needed easy-to-understand instruction on Biblical truth. Catechism emphasizes the systematic teaching of Bible truth, based on foundational information that every believer should know. It’s a covering of the bases before moving on to other material. Many churches teach the catechism before baptizing or confirming church members." https://www.biblestudytools.com/bible-study/topical-studies/what-is-the-catechism-is-it-still-applicable-today.html Who can really read the bible that was transcribed and translated many times over the years without the help and instruction from great scholars. Take a quote from just the New Testament, "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of the needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." How can a camel ever pass through the eye of a needle? Without an understanding of language and mindset of humans 2,000 years ago we would never understand that on it face. I suppose a free-formed Holy Hopper Pastor from some obscure Evangelical assembly might get something right now and then.
  2. Leftist Writer: Even If Biden ‘Boiled Babies And Ate Them,’ He Would Get My Vote "The Nation", writer Katha Pollitt . This trumps Trump?
  3. It has to do with association of thought with a particular subject or person; say, Bill Gates or modern art. Modern art is distasteful to some in any form so Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Wassily Kandinsky or even Pablo Picasso have no chance of acceptance. Mention Bill Gates and his Windows invention and many automatically assume a Bill gates project will carry the same stench.
  4. Fox misrepresented this whole thing, - Yeah, very convincing. You KNOW? I'd ask you to prove it but your statement is argumentum ad hominem. a lying, destructive, moronic, fat fucking retard - ad hominem fat fucking retard - ad hominem posing as a president - argumentum ad hominem a vile POS ad hominem. corrupt - ad hominem exploit the Oval Office - argumentum ad hominem in spite of the country that suffers for it. - argumentum ad hominem a fucking pig - ad hominem no common sense in the soul of a Trump lover - ad hominem you're just going to have to take my word for it. Yeah, I think I will pass on that. you have unloaded with Trump Derangement Syndrome and nothing , nothing of any substance. Carry the water for the lame stream media and the leftist loon deep state subversives. That's what is killing this country. That Joe Biden guy, he shows some real potential - argumentum ad hominem.
  5. SMFH. SackMan, I know your posts aren't just for this guy and the other TDS Democrat Debbie Downers here so keep em' coming. Democrat is a profane word by the way.
  6. The translator gets it. By the way, is anyone else getting tired of seeing these translators? I've just about had it. Some are soooo animated I have to think they are making it up on the fly. They have ways of scrolling the words across the bottom of the screen fairly quickly with AI.
  7. Moss doesn't grow on a rolling stone. I want to see a two back set with Moss and Singletary. It will mess up the opponent's LB core. Do they contain up the middle do they defend the pass coming out on the edges. They will have to do both at once. Cool stuff.
  8. I can't count him amongst the very best but he is a strong kid and a punishing runner. Utah had some offense issues and I think that hurt his level of selection. I love that he has the ability to catch out of the backfield like Thermal Thomas. I don't know about his attitude long run but I hope he doesn't turn into a McGahee or Beast Mode in attitude towards Buffalo and the team that drafted him. It's a little different given the current Bills team vs previous attempts and coaching changes.
  9. I think, besides working with Fred Rutherford, Lumpy's father, Ward worked for an Insurance company. Ozzie and Harriet Nelson eared their money from having the original "Reality TV Show". He would spend 5 minutes looking for some glue.
  10. Dems tell Supreme Court of 'ongoing' new impeachment inquiry in effort to obtain Mueller materials House Democrats told the Supreme Court on Monday that they are again in the midst of an "ongoing presidential impeachment investigation" as part of their "weighty constitutional responsibility" – and, the Democrats argued, redacted grand-jury material from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s now-completed Russia probe must be turned over as a result. Top Democrats have repeatedly suggested since President Trump was acquitted on two articles of impeachment in February that they might initiate new impeachment proceedings. In their brief with the Supreme Court, which seeks testimony, exhibits and transcripts, the Democrats promised that leaks won't be a problem, owing to their "special protocols" that will ensure "secrecy." "The [House Judiciary] Committee’s investigation did not cease with the conclusion of the impeachment trial," the Democrats told the nine justices on Monday. "If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the articles adopted by the House, the committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment." Specifically, the Democrats said they were looking into "the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the special counsel." READ HOUSE DEMS' FILING TO THE SUPREME COURT In Stone's case, the DOJ reversed a sentencing recommendation to Judge Amy Berman Jackson by former Mueller prosecutors that Stone should receive nine years in prison for obstructing Congress and related charges, saying it was obviously too harsh; indeed, Jackson later sentenced Stone to just three years in prison. And, the DOJ has moved to dismiss Flynn's case entirely, citing a mountain of exculpatory material that has surfaced since his guilty plea on one count of false statements to FBI agents, even after prosecutors had assured the court they had turned over all potentially relevant documents. Neither Flynn nor Stone were accused of conspiring with Russians, despite months of unfounded speculation. ("Flynn to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with Russians: Report," read a false 2017 CNBC headline. ABC News' Brian Ross was suspended for the report's inaccurate claim that then-candidate Trump had told Flynn to reach out to Moscow, which the network admitted was a "serious error.")

Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., speaks during the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump in the Senate at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Thursday, Jan. 23, 2020. (Senate Television via AP) Earlier this month, the DOJ filed an emergency request with the Supreme Court to temporarily block an order by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, which held by a 2-1 vote that the government needed to turn over the grand-jury materials. The DOJ has argued that Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e) protects the secrecy of grand-jury materials and that the exception allowing the disclosure "preliminarily to or in connection with a judicial proceeding" didn't apply, especially given Trump's acquittal by the Senate in an impeachment trial earlier this year. But, Democrats have argued that preliminary impeachment hearings in the House constitute a pending judicial proceeding. They emphasized in their filing with the Supreme Court on Monday that the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals explicitly agreed with them on that point. “ecause that exception encompasses impeachment proceedings and the committee has established a ‘particularized need’ for the grand jury materials, the order of the district court is affirmed,” Judge Judith Rogers wrote in the D.C. appellate court's decision, siding with the House Democrats. DOJ ABRUPTLY DROPS ONCE-HERALDED PROSECUTION OF RUSSIA TROLL FARM To establish a “particularized need" under existing case law, the Democrats noted, parties seeking grand-jury material under Rule 6(e) must show (1) “that the material they seek is needed to avoid a possible injustice in another judicial proceeding,” (2) “that the need for disclosure is greater than the need for continued secrecy,” and (3) “that their request is structured to cover only material so needed." The lower court in the case had also held that precedent supported the idea that an impeachment trial is akin to a judicial proceeding, citing a case that allowed the disclosure of grand jury material for the impeachment investigation of President Richard Nixon.

(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) The Circuit Court also agreed that the lower court properly used its discretion in determining that the possibility of new articles of impeachment stemming from the grand jury materials satisfied the requirement for a “particularized need.” The DOJ, however, has countered that having a court evaluate the House's needs related to impeachment would be "in considerable tension with the House's 'sole Power of Impeachment' and the Senate's 'sole Power to try all Impeachments,'" as laid out in the Constitution. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dems-cite-ongoing-new-impeachment-inquiry-in-effort-to-obtain-mueller-materials?fbclid=IwAR2QP16YOp2Bo5CpZ1ubds7Qe5M8NJ2m7-gJQzvh7Kp7WA59_OpHmO36jjE The House Democrats supposedly doing the work of the people are back at yet ANOTHER impeachment attempt of President Donald Trump. They must not have high confidence in any Democrat candidate beating Donald Trump but they think they can take over the two chambers of Congress or at least retain the House and gain a seat or two in the Senate. I’m telling you, these impeachments will continue forever, so long as Democrats remain in control of either house of Congress. The only way to stop them is to remove the Democrats, all of them, in November. Make them a minority party again — helpless and unable to do anything. It’s the only way. This is not acceptance politics. It's insane manipulation of the system and the Constitution with the help of the lame stream media.
  11. LOL. Well I guess cutting his allowance 50 cents and having him was the car and the trash cans is a bit too much. I'll go talk to him. All the while Ward is sipping coffee from a small cup. But you know, Beaver did load his good church shoes to his friend Whitey who ruined them in a mud puddle.
