How many starved? With all of Ireland theirs, with the richest nation of the time ready to back them up? Two? The English couldn't breed out the native Irish nor convert them out, so the starved them out.
Jim,just look at the ignorence of that man"all that food,growen in ireland to feed overfed England" I thought it was a spud famin,and for his information again,loads of prods died also. This fool has listened to,to many irish fairy tails told by his idol worshiping priests of hate. "(he) must(needs) be born again"
G. G., I think the biggest alien population in Britain is the Irish, working in jobs that their society doesn't supply them with, a couple of hundred miles away. You say the Irish are still starving? I thought that was in the 19th-century? However, nothing would surprise me about a Catholic country! ;-)
Albert, thank you for the information about the Republic of Ireland behavior during World War II.
After what the Brits did to Ireland, I'm not surprised they helped the Germans. Imagine... all of that food, grown in Ireland to feed overfed England, while 1.5 million true Irishmen starved. Oh but the Protestant churches jumped right in, provided you joined their religion. How many Ulstermen died in the famine?
JIM,you forgot to add that sinn fien helped the German spies during the war,nothing like getting stabbed in the back,and president de valara and the Irish government sent their condolences to the Germans when Hitler died.oh and don't foget that bastion of wealth the roman church it was very quick to send aid to those starving in Ireland just like they do now days . ROMANS 16:17-18
Chas: I didn't say that my opinion did decide biblical truth. I say that I have a right to my opinion that God has granted me by virtue of being a human being. All humans have a right to an opinion. But, there is a difference between what the Bible says to Baptists and what it says to Pentecostals. Perhaps we can argue whether there is such a thing as "true freedom". But, my faith teaches me that God has given me the grace to choose for myself, whether to serve the Lord or not. Read the Bible, its there.
Jim: I was not aware of what the Irish President said. I am aware that Albert and his buddies are facists. I believe that Ulster Protestants and some local nazi's on this sermonline were raised and are raising their children to HATE CATHOLICS. Just read the ads and the posts (yours included). The Irish President is a politician, I am not. I can speak my mind. So long as there is religious freedom in this country. I do so tire of having to correct your knowledge of history. NOT ALL Germans were/are Nazis. About half of Germany was Catholic and half Lutheran during Hitler's reign. Hitler was born Catholic but ALL true historians assert that Hitler was a pagan and promoted paganism (The ancient germanic gods: Woden, Thor,...etc). Of course the Catholic Irish didn't support England during the war. Would you support someone that starved 1.5 million of your folks during the Potatoe Famine. They exported food from Ireland's mouth to feed their wallets. Don't forget that Albert's brothers in the Para's killed too!
GG YOU do not decide what Biblical truth is!!!! Biblical truth is exegeted from Scripture under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is not a matter of what you think is true (your opinion), but of what God says is true. As far as human rights are concerned, what do you consider a TRULY human right? As far as choices go, our choice (our wills) as unredeemed sinners is under bondage to sin and death and is, therefore, not truly free. Our choice as Christians is free only in the sense that we are free to choose life BY God's renewing and illuminating grace. He gives us the power of good and proper choice for we do not have it. I think that you are operating under the politically inspired delusion that men are autonomous creatures. This is not true and has never been true. Whether sinner or saint we are God's creatures and are obligated to God. We are not God, nor our own gods nor even our own entities. Whatever we do and think must be of God and from God or it is just plain WRONG! In brief GG, God's Kingdom rule is not democratic in nature but a benevolent dictatorship in which He, for His glory and our good, leads us in body mind and spirit to salvation, and we are joyfully and hopefully subject to Him as His bondservants.
G. G., are you just copying what the Irish President just said? She was saying that the Ulster Protestants were raising their children like Nazis to hate Catholics. She fairly quickly retracted that comment, but it was a dumb one. She seemed to have forgotten that the Republic of Ireland was neutral during World War II and except for some very bright citizens in Ireland who joined the British to fight the Nazis, many Irish were sympathetic to their Catholic Nazi brothers on the continent. I don't blame Albert forgetting excited about the Catholic terrorists who have killed places many people in Northern Ireland than the Protestants have. Of course, both groups are wrong if they supported any of this type of behavior.
G. G., you mean you won't unthinkingly follow the Pope in any of his official announcements on religion? ;-)
Chas: I don't think you could have a truely human right that would go against Bible truth. God put the choice between good and evil, life and death before man for him to choose. Thats goes along with personal opinion. I agree, there is ONLY ONE Biblical Truth, but I demand the right to decide what that is, not someone from a different viewpoint. Especially facists like Albert from N.I.
GG! Thank you for your interest. Please re-read my comments, this time in their entirity. Notice, the words 'at the expense of' and 'as opposed to'. As far as PC is concerned, that is always a damnable thing.
Chas: Human rights vs Biblical truth? If God granted it to us, then it is a right. If God didn't grant it to us, it isn't. Human rights are God given, would his word take away from his gifts? Your idea of Bible truth may not the same as the next man's. Whose Bible truth are you referring to?
Personal opinions are just that..."personal". Or do you envisage a God that gives freedom with one hand and takes it away with the other? Love can only be given by those whose hearts are free.
How about that, some plain talk for a change. The tem 'apology' is not acceptable. The term repentance is Biblical! Good for you Benjamin Nzimbi. But let's take it to it's logical conclusion. Let's not 'urge' or 'ask for' repentance let's DEMAND it since these people have clearly demonstrated their disdain for the Bible by ordaining a homosexual to begin with. These people are not merely in error they are truly enemies of the Gospel and of Christ! "Repent or perish!" says the Scripture, and it says it despite any political correctness, (so-called) human rights or personal opinion!
Cliff, this and other studies, etc. refute the idea and common misconception that African-Americans, whether evangelical or not, are liberal when it comes to views and beliefs on such issues as abortion and homosexuality.
we can only applade the african church and its fearless leaders for their Bibical stand. what a difference from the unbelief propagated in so many uk churches."Be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a Crown of Life".
