Well being in the Vietnam war, we did have a lily-white officer core, but many of our sargents were black. My first company sargent was. I seriously doubt the blacks back then really cared if the lieutenants were White as long as they weren't racist. I didn't care if my sargents were black as long as they weren't racist. I didn't like racists of any color.
Strange, Mike N.Y., I do differentiate between liberal Catholics and conservative ones. Unfortunately all too often because it's authoritarian nature folks raised in the Romish Church don't recognize their are not only grey areas in religious http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=92906103536 (Guidelines for Using Our Liberties), but in politics there is a huge amount of grey area, but don't tell Nancy Pelosi that. So, almost always they are usually radical right or left, and the word, "moderate," isn't in their vocabulary.
No comment about the commentary from my Congressman? Except for the obligatory attack on Pres. Obama, it seems a good commentary, and this is from a registered Independent. So, Penny, what did you not like about it?
Mike wrote: "Progressive" and "sense" have something to do with each other, Jim? Nah. Their modern meanings are poles apart. Liberals imagine they are progressive, since in their perverted view they see destruction as progress. Therefore they lack sense. See how that works?
Mike of NY, may I suggest you watch either part 2 (3?) I think I saw this series from the first, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, and Teddy called himself a Progressive, it is interesting that the Republicans should have actually a mule as their party symbol, because they are as stubborn as one. Oh, we still would be burning coal in our furnaces and trains, if the GOP had it's way. So, no, Teddy's Square Deal is just as much of an anathema to the Republican Plutocracy now, as it was then. This is why the present GOP, had better start paying attention to Samâ€™s Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party.
Mike of New York, it should be easy to surmise where I stand, on such practices. I had criticized Ronnie and Nancy Reagan several times for their use of a fortune teller. so, if Hillary is hearing things, she needs her head examined as well as her religious faith.
I had no trouble reading the entire article from a desktop computer. It's interesting that "Jim [Drexler, the AUTHOR]is dean of social science and the Graduate School of Education at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Ga."
A good article none the less, and Christians schools shouldn't be confused with parochial schools which aren't Christian.
John Y., of course this Satan's servant can do some things right, but usually wrong. In one article he somewhat quoted Scripture,
Ephesians 4 26 BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
in another article about this. Good advice to married people, though Ann Landers could have done it better and with more authority in another article about this. Apparently the Romish Church is somewhat conscious of mass weddings such as the Unification Church has done, so they try to refrain from these. I notice Satan's Emissary didn't quote from these Scriptures,
Matthew 5 31 "And it was said, 'WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY, LET HIM GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE'; 32 but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the cause of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.---NASB
Why, Mike of N.Y., should I expect any nibbles since it was a fact? Anyway, I ran across an amusing tibit about Bush the Elder, I believe it was on Yahoo, and someone wanted to name the President didn't know the price of Milk. It was daddy Bush, and as one wit pointed out the Younger did know a lot of about alcoholic drinks which he passed on to his daughters. At first glance the comment about Jr., was but when one thought about it, it was really,
