I think this story is a bit overblown.....the feds giving millions of pieces of armament to local authorities? Maybe, if you count each individual bullet, most of which are used on training ranges. Sure they give them kevlar vests and M16s too, and why not? Those are available to the general public. Our law enforcement deserves to be at least a step ahead of the bad guys. Otherwise, what chance do they have? I live on a fairly small town, and we even have a surplus MRAP. It's only been deployed once, in a hostage situation, and without the loss of any "innocent" lives. I don't like the idea of bad guys running around with bulletproof vests and AK47s being chased by cops with 6 shooters and tshirts.
Jessica, if if makes you feel any better, I've never heard of you
But I think I understand what you mean. When people only see the mask you are paid to wear, they think that's who you really are, without considering that you are just a regular person, just like them.
Chris, I would be tempted to agree with you, but I think perhaps you underestimate the depth of depravity resulting from our sinful nature. But for the grace of God, we could very easily be those people.
I have to agree. There was no reason to risk bringing them back to the U.S. Anythung that could be done for them here could have just as easily been done over there without introducing the virus to a whole other continent and riskibg the lives of hundreds of millions of other people.
Republicans CLAIM to support smaller govt and more individual freedom. Their actions do not align well with their words. Anymore, there is very little difference between the parties. The main difference lies in the fact that one party is completely open and honest about what they want to do to us. Fortunately, Jesus offers citizenship in a single-party kingdom
He wants to create a poor church for the poor? Isn't that rich? Has he checked the vatican basement lately? He can certainly more than afford to build countless poor churches. Problem is, this world is already full of poor churches, when measured by doctrine and theology.
Not so sure that the church has anything to do with map apps or the government's regulation of them. I don't recall the Bible mentioning such things. I would therefore deem this a non-issue, at least from a strictly Christian perspective.
I fail to understand the complaint. You can have your Bible study every two weeks without running afoul of the law, and if you want to do it more frequently, why not have some of those studies hosted by one of the other 49 people in attendance? The proposed law makes sense to me, and does not infringe on any first amendment rights.
