The Judge apparently is oblivious that the "negative stereotype" is a multi-billion business.
Apparently, sadly it is not only city where this is allowed, glad I don't live there. But I can see the silver lining in this, the group we oppose won in court, which means that they won't appeal the judgment and we don't have be concerned that it would go to Supreme Court and they find they same way this Judge did and it becomes the"law" of the land.

Yeah well, the not of works, faith alone, total depravity, Imputed righteousness, Eternal Security, Penal Substitution, born in sin, saved in sin, live in sin, die in sin, Antichrist theology presented on this site and just about every other source on the entire planet with one or two very small exceptions, renders it unnecessary. Jesus obeyed for you, believes for you, repents for you, pampers you like a spoiled child and you do absolutely nothing except trust in the finished work of the cross, otherwise you are trusting in your own righteousness and that's taboo. Your in, no matter what. Until the Day of Reckoning and you discover it was all a pack of lies. The whole lot of it.
I am not defending BJU and have no interest in the debate but clearly BMac is right information is being put out that is not well researched. First, there is nothing blasphemous about plays. Attending a Catholic university (by the one Bob Jones that didn't ascend to the presidency) is not an endorsement of Catholicism. Going to a Catholic university is not a pro-Catholic statement just ask Sandra Fluke.There are no buildings currently named after a klan member on the BJU campus. If you have a problem with BJU it bothers me not. There are many godly people who attend and work there. Also, they have apologized for their past on not properly handling sexual abuse
âOn behalf of Bob Jones University, I would like to sincerely and humbly apologize to those who felt they did not receive from us genuine love, compassion, understanding, and support after suffering sexual abuse or assault,â said president Steve Pettit, addressing students and faculty in chapel Wednesday. âWe did not live up to their expectations. We failed to uphold and honor our own core values. We are deeply saddened to hear that we added to their pain and suffering.â
James Thomas wrote: 'congregation' was the translation Tyndale used instead of 'church'... It is a worthy matter to search out
Certainly No one here is holding to the church as an item made of mortar and bricks, neither should the body of Christ be understood as a total abstract, or as a solely local visual *entity* in the sense of a human organization. Neither of these isolated are valid because the local assembly is tangible token of that great *company*, or *gathering* of the ones called out of grace, which concept traces back to the congregation of Israel in the OT.
Cf. Ac 7 with Ex 17 with Hebrew (H5712, `edah) and Greek (G1577, ekklÄsia) words pointing to the same concept
"This is he, that was in the *church* (G1577, gathering of the called out) in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers .."
"And all the *congregation* (H5712) of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, .. according to the commandment of the LORD"
It is rather interesting how the etymology of Kirk or 'church' in Celtic and Anglo-Saxon traces back to the Greek word 'kyriakon', an adjective, referring to the place/gathering "of the Lord"
It was an interesting interview, and most of her comments I think all of us can agree with. Other times people will have some problems with her.

That's because it's likely to spur the media to work harder and dig deeper at every level. Again, that doesn't mean simply acting as mouthpieces for the president's political opposition. The Democrats have their own spokespeople, and frankly, the news media has been playing the role of that party's advocate for far too long. The fawning coverage President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton received from the news media over the past eight years is an undeniable fact too. The key will be trying to find that sweet spot where the journalists challenge and analyze the Trump team in a unique and non-partisan way.
This glorification of sodomites and transgenderism is just ridiculous and sickening. So much time being wasted on utter nonsense and lunatics protesting and fighting for utter nonsense. Thanks Mr OBama for your awesome work and such a productive 8yrs. What a laughing stock we must be to the rest of the world as this garbage has taken over the nightly news and clogged the court system.
The universal priesthood of the believer makes that the members of the body of Christ serve him in divers earthly callings, capacities, activities or settings, but this does not mean that each enterprise they exercise their service in is 'the church'. E.g. a civil government in the possibility that it was made exclusively of believers cannot be called a church by structure, neither a business run exclusively by believers is a church, neither a Christian School in this case.
The church is a body standing for the mutual edification of a company called apart, while a business is set for financial profit through work; a civil government to punish evil, and an educational institution for training by imparting knowledge and instruction. Though some aspects of their functionalities may overlap the church's, the entities stand for different purposes.
Obviously the Christian individual should exercise his earthly calling with all the characteristics pertaining to his heavenly call.
It is useful to perceive that we are talking of two tiers of a concept running parallel. As two sides of the same coin, the two aspects should not mutually exclude each other, neither annul, or replace each other.

If this continues, Christians won't be able to watch any NFL football. Can American Christians live without watching football? The Super Bowl bible studies will never be the same. Thanksgiving will be ruined.

Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic (PPHP), which operates health centers in Suffolk, Westchester, and Rockland counties, New York, provides prenatal care in 6 of their 10 health centers.
We also found that many of the Planned Parenthood clinics that do not provide prenatal care services do nonetheless state they offer resources to assist those in need of finding such care: âIf you choose to continue a pregnancy, we will provide you with a list of resources to help you obtain prenatal care.â
(We also surveyed several Planned Parenthood offices ourselves. For example, we called the Family First Health Center in Fresno, California, who confirmed to us that they do in fact offer prenatal care services. We also contacted the Planned Parenthood office in Tempe, Arizona (one of the first locations mentioned in the video), who told us that they did not provide prenatal care services themselves but directed us to a nearby facility, the Mountain Park Health Center, that does.)
