I wonder if Ms. Bachmann, thinks it's ok for Muhammadan taxi drivers to refuse service to blind people with guide dogs, because of their religious beliefs. Ms. Brewer had a tough call to make, and as I think it has been pointed out, the law was poorly crafted. Apparently they needed someone as crafty as Pope Franny to write the law, which would protect normal people from harassing lawsuits, that still wouldn't get the NFL worked up.

Admittedly pretty good for you, Jim. But the pope is now; the pres is now. They both are leaders of large numbers of people now. Yet you only find duplicity in one of them. Still.
Gentlemen, it appears when someone raises to the rank of Bishop or higher, though are still Romish priests, q.v., The Scandal of the Catholic Priesthood, is that they become much more politicians than having much of a resemblance to anything Christian. The 1913 Webster's Dictionary has an excellent description:

Jeremiah 1:16 KJV  And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.
Strat, I ask you to read these verses and think on them.
Romans 2:1-3 KJV  Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.  But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.  And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
Matthew 7:1-5 KJV  Judge not, that ye be not judged.  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
I am not and don't claim to be any sort of standard which others should hold themselves against to judge their holiness. I am a sinner as much as anybody, but these verses were written in God's book, so now I present th
Great Sermon! This really touched me.
It is hard to face who we really are and our pride causes us to think we are ok.
I'm seeing more and more how much I must humble myself and seek Jesus.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this sermon. I am reminded of the verse "where sin prevailed, grace did more so prevail" . God give us clear vision of our real nature that his grace in redemption stand out in its glory.

As has been pointed out the vast majority of the Anabaptists had nothing to do with the few events that you clearly like to dwell on. The Anabaptists were pacifists and did not believe in using carnal weapons because they knew they were involved in a spiritual battle.
In what the radicals did, they imitated the Roman Catholics and reformed. Why such hatred of the vast majority based on an errant minority? Why not mete out the same treatment to Roman Catholics and reformed who between them have murdered literally millions? Oh wait, I forget because you're here to justify the Harlot church and the reformed in so far as they imitate the RCC.
