In a statement, Rich‚Äôs family told The Post that they were investigating whether someone attempted to gain access to Rich‚Äôs email account. ‚ÄúWe are outraged that certain individuals continue to try to use Seth‚Äôs name and memory to advance their political and ideological agendas,‚ÄĚ they said. ‚ÄúWe hope people will think twice the next time someone makes an outlandish claim to have discovered new evidence in this case.‚ÄĚ
A family spokesman went further, criticizing Fox News for fanning the flames.
‚ÄúWe are hopeful that in the future that Fox News will work with the family to ensure the highest degree of professionalism and scrutiny is followed so that only accurate facts are reported surrounding this case,‚ÄĚ said Brad Bauman, a progressive communications strategist working with the Rich family.
KJV-Onlyism runs the gambit from moderately reasonable advocates (David Cloud, E.L. Bynum, John R. Rice), to the wacked-out, stone throwers (D.A.

A couple of years ago, Gary Hudson launched a website devoted to exposing the errors of ‚ÄúKing James Onlyism‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒ‚ÄúThe King James Only Resource Center.‚ÄĚ Gary has a number of articles and reports posted.

Or...I would suggest you see the video that has a link in the article that SA has pointed out. Not keen on videos? See the below:

Hybrids interfere with this picture by allowing branches to share genetic information horizontally all at once. And if the branches can re-join by back-crossing, the tree metaphor becomes more like a net. Pennisi understands the challenge to Darwinism in her title, ‚ÄúShaking Up the Tree of Life,‚ÄĚ when she says, ‚ÄúSpecies were once thought to keep to themselves. Now, hybrids are turning up everywhere, challenging evolutionary theory.‚ÄĚ'
I see little response by the general media. CNN, withdrew the story. They publicly corrected their error. All good news agencies do this.
Some people called it a fake news story I would call it a "no" news story.
A news story about Russia and Trump--and Obama:
ABC Radio News wrote: According to the article, Obama‚Äôs actions in response to findings that the Russians were specifically targeting Hillary Clinton‚Äôs campaign for president in an effort to elect Trump were ‚Äúmodest,‚ÄĚ not nonexistent.
Though some staffers of the former president reportedly believe the Obama administration could have been more aggressive in its response to the threat, others stand by his actions.

Adam Clarke Commentary wrote: Exodus 21 Verse 22. And hurt a woman with child] As a posterity among the Jews was among the peculiar promises of their covenant, and as every man had some reason to think that the Messiah should spring from his family, therefore any injury done to a woman with child, by which the fruit of her womb might be destroyed, was considered a very heavy offence; and as the crime was committed principally against the husband, the degree of punishment was left to his discretion. But if mischief followed, that is, if the child had been fully formed, and was killed by this means, or the woman lost her life in consequence, then the punishment was as in other cases of murder-the person was put to death; Exodus 21:23.
As Matthew Henry pointed out in his full commentary the judges were to make sure the punishment was equable.
You don't let the unborn kill the mother, even inadvertently. Even many Catholics see this point, as the Nebraska legislature, which has more than its share did.
Mark Thornton wrote: National prohibition of alcohol (1920-33)‚ÄĒthe ‚Äúnoble experiment‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒwas undertaken to reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burden created by prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America. The results of that experiment clearly indicate that it was a miserable failure on all counts. The evidence affirms sound economic theory, which predicts that prohibition of mutually beneficial exchanges is doomed to failure.
The lessons of Prohibition remain important today. They apply not only to the debate over the war on drugs but also to the mounting efforts to drastically reduce access to alcohol and tobacco and to such issues as censorship and bans on insider trading, abortion, [ ] and gambling.
In N.Y. state one is on a Quixotic task on controlling abortion, pro-abortionists might shoot back and there are more of them. But anti-abortionists can have wins.

Among his commitments to pro-lifers, President-elect Donald Trump has promised to sign the National Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
"A landmark law [was] passed by the Nebraska legislature (44-5) and signed into law in 2010. For the first time in any state legislature, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act prohibits abortion after 20 weeks gestation except when the mother has a condition which so complicates her medical condition as to necessitate the abortion of her pregnancy to avert death or irreversible physical impairment."---Cato Institute on Abortion

Michael D. Tanner wrote: Contrary to stereotypes, there is no evidence that people on welfare are lazy. Indeed, surveys of welfare recipients consistently show their desire for a job. But there is also evidence that many are reluctant to accept available employment opportunities. Despite work requirements included in the 1996 welfare reform, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says less than 42 percent of adult welfare recipients participate in work activities nationwide. Why the contradiction?
Perhaps it‚Äôs because, while poor people are not lazy, they are not stupid either. If you pay people more not to work than they can earn at a job, many won‚Äôt work.

Robert L. Dean, Jr. wrote: In the Old Testament, a situation similar to infanticide took place in Molech worship. There a child was sacrificed to the god. While the Old Testament prophets clearly condemned this practice, there is no evidence that they sought to block the action physically. They proclaimed and condemned the practice. But they never sought to stop it through a "sit-in" or physical restraint.
While these passages cited in the rescuers argument do support civil disobedience, they are not parallel to the current abortion situation and thus do not apply. Thus the major premise, that believers are responsible to God to obey Him rather than man is true, but the Scriptures give clear examples of the types of situations in which this applies. These situations are not parallel to the abortion dilemma, and thus cannot be used to support the kind of actions which rescuers carry out.
At the moment, we have heard a lawsuit is going to be brought. First it has to be brought and then the defendants would have to lose it, which means they were braking the law. We won't know if they have been doing until after the court case.
QC, Biblical law helped the apostle Paul because he was God orientated, for those who aren't.

Legislating morality only works when only a very small group in society may oppose that morality, otherwise it's going to fail.
Prohibition is an excellent example of a fail moral action codified into law, with too many people who failed to support that morality. See, http://www.history.com/topics/prohibition, "The high price of bootleg liquor meant that the nation‚Äôs working class and poor were far more restricted during Prohibition than middle or upper class Americans. Even as costs for law enforcement, jails and prisons spiraled upward, support for Prohibition was waning by the end of the 1920s. In addition, fundamentalist and nativist forces had gained more control over the temperance movement, alienating its more moderate members."
Robert L. Dean, Jr. wrote: In the minds of many, the greatest battle confronting the church today is overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that has legalized the murder of millions of unborn babies. As the church confronts this situation, Christians must make sure that not only what they want is Biblical, but that the way they go about it is also Biblical. In the process of achieving a goal that glorifies God, we must not dishonor God by the tactics we use....
Therefore, before engaging in an act of civil disobedience, breaking man's law in order to obey the Scripture, we must make sure that there is clearly a Biblical mandate and/or a Biblical precedent for the action. If there is no clear command in the Scriptures, no parallel, and no example, then the act of civil disobedience is not Biblical....[ ] .... A consistent principle emerges ... All the acts of legitimate civil disobedience involved two parties (the adversary and the subject). There are no examples, as in the current Rescue argument, which involves a third party (someone who acts on behalf of another). No law is compelling the rescuers to be party to an abortion.
John MacArthur said or, wrote: We are all exposed, I am quite sure, today, in our society, to the current emphasis on morality. We hear about the new right, the moral majority, a great call from many parts of our country that says to our nation, "We must return to our roots, to the standard of behavior, ethics, morality, religion upon which our nation was founded." This cry has come rather repeatedly in our particular time in history, but it really isn't anything new, even for America....
I want to say at the very beginning that I agree with morality, so that I won't be misunderstood. I definitely agree with ethics and morality and standards, and I believe that we should adhere to those which are the truths revealed in the Word of God. But morality, by itself, is in many ways more dangerous than immorality. That may shock you, but it shouldn't, because that's exactly what we see around the life of Christ, and that is basically what our Lord is teaching us in the passage we're going to look at today: the danger of morality, ethics, religion, reformation, cleaning up your life, changing from evil habits to "good habits."

Neither part 1 or 2 are that long, so take a look at them.
Because there's more to it than what I quoted from the article, ladybug, so go read the whole thing -- which isn't that long. Rodman may --or may not-- have been one of the reasons that Otto Warmbier was released.
Yes, President Trump is suppose to have better military advisors than Dennis Rodman.
Hmm, John Y., the lesser of two evils, conservative Catholics, support the lesser of two evils of the political parties, the Greedy Old Party. Wow! I'm impressed!
It will be interesting if the Demos can stop supporting morally corrupt causes so they can politically compete. What was interesting the article said nothing about homosexuality, queer marriages, etc. Roman Catholics of whatever political hue can't say anything about that because of http://tinyurl.com/jywxq2j (Clerical Celibacy) and of course why the Romish Church is rotten to the core.
What was disgusting I tried so hard to copy one of the letters to the editors to article that I think NY Times blocked me! Pity, a woman from Texas had a pithy comment about the greedy GOP, etc. Too bad, NY Times may have gotten a few more readers, if I had.
Guess what? there are more sins than abortion!
