I believe this is worse because it hides behind cowardice masked as "love" and " gentleness". Elijah mocked Baal worshipping. I mock the devil and his religions too.
Protestants of the 1500s and 1600s had no problem of mocking popery and popish things in caricature. Imagine a reformer of the 1500s of not wanting to offend a superstitious RCer of false doctrine out of " love".
Sorry Dave of OZ, I disagree. The parent should decide to vaccinate or not to vaccinate. I don't believe in forced vaccinations by the state-it conjures up images of the Third Reich, Stalinist state, or the Cultural Revolution.
Lets see now, did God give stewardship of children to the civil authorities or to the parents? Do the civil authorities know what is best for the child rather than the parent? I say no to the state. The state can keep their dirty little bureaucratic hands off my children. My wife and I know what is best for our children and not some ivory tower bureaucrat. If anyone has love for the nanny state, let them goose step to the nearest fascisti chapter and commiserate.
I doubt that Jakes ever worked for a corporation. I worked for a corporation which would lay off workers quarterly in order to appease the stockholders on Wall Street and the upper management would receive bonuses in the millions of dollars. I left the corporate world and will never work for one again.
Former FBI Director, J. E Hoover, surveilled government officials and had blackmailed some of them. Last year, the CIA spied on Congress. So, it would not surprise me if the NSA is taking a peek into the Justices' communications. Odd how Roberts, a conservative, sided with obamacare.
Why should the Almighty bless us economically when we live in a nation of disobedience-idolatry, infanticide, and sexual perversion. No contemporary western politician will admit to disobedience to God.
I think Obama and his minions confused the word opacity with transparency when Prez BO said his administration would be the most transparent. The correct statement should be the most opaque administration ever.
