Fluoride in most groundwaters occurs as the anion Fâ€“. Waters with high fluoride content are found mostly in calcium-deficient ground waters in many basement aquifers, such as granite and gneiss, in geothermal waters and in some sedimentary basins. Groundwaters with high fluoride concentrations occur in many areas of the world including large parts of Africa, China, the Middle East and southern Asia (India, Sri Lanka). One of the best known high fluoride belts on land extends along the East African Rift from Eritrea to Malawi. There is another belt from Turkey through Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, India, northern Thailand and China. The Americas and Japan have similar belts.
Fluoride is found in vegetables, fruit, tea and other crops. although drinking water is usually the largest contributor to the daily fluoride intake. Fluoride is also found in the atmosphere, originating from the dusts of fluoride-containing soils, from gaseous industrial wastes, from the burning of coal fires in populated areas and from gases of volcanic activity. Thus fluoride, in varying concentrations, is freely available in nature

Did you read the article???? I sincerely doubt it. If you had, you would know the reason Christopher put the start of his post in quotation marks is because it is a pull quote from the article. Brother Christopher said NOTHING about blacks in his comment.
While your upset at what is written in the pull quote is understandable, it is misdirected. Christopher did not write or research the article. You might want to consider asking the moderators to delete your comment or at the very least offer the good brother an apology.
Im curious as to how they are to know if the customer is engaging in adultery? Are they to have the customer fill out a questionaire, and if they meet a certain criteria the services will be carried out? This isnt practical. Im all for standing for holiness, but this line of thinking would make a pharisee proud. Unless youve never commited adultery, how could you refuse services on that basis? Like unprofitable servant pointed out, the adulterer is not asking for flowes honoring adultery whereas the sodomite is asking for flowers that honor their blasphemous union. So its not really the same issue.
I dont think Ill disuade you, but thats my opinion. I hope I didnt come off rude cause I didnt mean it that way.
ChristopherOOOOO and whoever is in agreement with Mr. OOO. You both should be ashamed. You would do well to fill in the OOOs lacking in your baseless comment. First "Blacks" is not an ethnicity. This kind of stuff causes social problems unimaginable; as you cannot see what it has done to even yourself. Take time to read the book of James, chapter three and see if God approves with your empty, vain imagination. Then read "Religion and the "Rise of Capitalism", R. H. Tawney, and "Patriotism Capitalized" (or "Religion Turned Into Gold"), W. M. Likins. Reading these books just might add some value to purpose in life. As it stands, you are full of 000s. t a great comment Chris and I can add nothing to it except to say that I agree with everything you said. Thanks.[/QUOTE]
sc, if one gives flowers for Valentine's Day it is because they are trying to honor the recipient. If I send flowers to someone's funeral, again the idea is to honor them. Flowers are a way to commemorate the occasion, to say this is a special day or you are a special person.
The article stated that the "gay" man specifically asked for floral arrangements for his "gay" wedding. She decided to take a stand regardless of the cost. I can imagine if someone walked into the florist and said, "I would like flowers to celebrate adultery with my adulterous partner", she would have also refused.
If your problem was indeed against the double standard, propaganda and spiritual grandstanding then the burden is with you to prove that this is true of this florist. The fact that she sold flowers to this customer for 9 years shows she is not promoting a double standard, she is simply refusing to honor "gay" marriage. I guarantee she wanted none of the publicity or problems she is now facing for taking a stand. She followed her convictions at a great cost to her.
The Corinthians dropped the ball in I Corinthians 5, please read II Corinthians 7:8-16.
Finally, if a person has anger issues does that mean they aren't in a position to reject malice or murder?
So Now, FINALLY, The TRUTH, The WHOLE TRUTH & NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH Is Coming Out About The Chicago Police Department (The Department I Had Applied To Become A Chicago Police Officer After I Came Back From Bob Jones University In 1990-'91) !
The Last Time I Went To "Homan Square", In The Fall Of 2012, I Believe--About The Time BRIAN JACOB CHURCH Was Held There--Was To Pick Up The $1,000.00+ Cash (Mostly $20.00 Dollar Bills) The Chicago Police Had Confiscated From Me When They Took It From Me & Held It As "Evidence" (ala The 'Evidence And Recovered Property Is Located Around The Corner At 1011 S. Homan' Photo Re: The Guardian Article) Pertaining To A Previously Unrelated Legal Matter In Dupage County).
By The Way, As I'm Typing This Comment, BEATINGS ARE STILL GOING ON AT THE COOK COUNTY JAIL &-OR AT "HOMAN SQUARE"; NOT TO MENTION THE VARIOUS HOLDING-CELLS THROUGHOUT THE CITY OF CHICAGO, IL, U.S.A.:
WHOSE HOST, MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL, IS THE SON OF IRGUN-ISRAELI-TERRORISTS !--Who Just YESTERDAY, 2-24-15, WON 45% Of The VOTE & Is Heading For A RUNOFF-Election With COOK COUNTY COMMISSIONER JESUS 'CHUY' GARCIA (Who WON 33%) For CHICAGO MAYOR This Apr. 7, 2015 ELECTION !
BRIAN J. CHURCH In 2012 LIVED 3 BLOCKS FROM ME IN THE 11th-WARD'S BRIDGEPORT NEIGHBORHOOD !
I was suggesting that Christian business owners need to drop double standards if they have them.In doing so,they wouldn't appear as being unfair."Yes",they should question the heterosexual couples that want their services insofar as whether or not they are in an adulterous affair...if they are so concerned about contributing to that which God would be displeased.Then there are no double standards. And Mike,I'm not saying that Christians say that it's okay. The fact remains,as long as they don't have to participate in the wedding,how are they "honoring" it by selling a cake or flowers? There should be a standard across the board or they should cater to homosexuals as well. My problem with all of this is the double standard and the propaganda and spiritual grandstanding that goes along with it. This country aborts how many babies a year? There are more critical issues at hand. We dropped the ball a long time ago as far as contending for sexual decency.We're only in a position to reject homosexuality if we also reject heterosexuality in its lewdness. Perhaps this lady is consistent in that regard.I hope so then she is completely just in her stand.
The Following Is NOT "Spam"; But A Restatement Of The Same Subject On A Different Thread:
"Todd Beasley, Nephew To Jesse Jackson Sr., Told Me Several Years Ago; The Reason Why Obama Left Trinity United Church Of Christ--Jeremiah Wright's 'Church'--And Joined The Apostolic Pentecostal Church, Located At The Corner Of 63rd & Stony Island In Englewood (Formerly Hyde-Park), Chicago, IL, U.S.A.

We like it, and have used it for some time. We use it for coffee, some cooking, but most of our drinking water is purchased spring water. (Not purified water which is just municipal water in bottles, as you likely know) The distilled water passes through a carbon filter before exiting. Filters are about $38 a pack of 6. I replace ours every three months or so. Ours is a model 4000 from waterwise.com. Not cheap, but cheap to use per gallon. Hunt around their site, somewhere they tell why we don't actually benefit from minerals that come in water. They have a free water scam report available, too.

that's precisely what the KJV does.
Since we see that the word Easter is used for the Passover/Resurrection, I will be sure to celebrate Christ's Resurrection, even set a day aside especially to give God the glory for my salvation, not earned, and call it Passover (He passed over my sins- the atonement, He rose from the dead), just as the Hebrews remembered every year the first Passover. Amen!
Research the facts on Hovind and you'll be shocked. He never refused to pay taxes but rather challenged the Govt and the interpretation of the law. He was very open and forthright about his actions. What did this get him? Armed officers surrounding his house at night and taking he and his wife out by force in the middle of the night. Much more to this story! Hovind was making someone very nervous!
