African-American pro-life leaders affirm that black lives matter, including in the womb
WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - The niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. is reminding Americans that abortion is the ultimate form of racism.
Dr. Alveda King reflected on the sinful nature of racism and pointed to the theological and biological unity of all peoples.
"Racism is sin. Hatred is sin. ... The big lie is that we are separate races, when in fact the spiritual, scientific and biological fact is that we are one blood; one human race. Racism and hatred are deadly
But, abortion is the ultimate form of hate, the ultimate assault on civil rights, "As one of God's microphones, I'm often required to say what people don't want to hear. Abortion is racism, in that abortion takes away the civil rights and lives of our weakest and most vulnerable members of the human race, unborn babies." As director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, the African-American outreach of Priests for Life and the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization, King has made it her mission to "clearly and forcefully ... heighten awareness in the black community that civil rights begin when life begins."
"bible agnostic" is accurate& differentiates from confident AV do u not know what the Bible is? or where to get one?

Dave nailed it, Watcher. Not you, as superman...that's common knowledge around these here parts anyway, but Dave, as superhead, or supernoggin. An enormously large cranium, two strands of super long hair that he wraps around his, bald as a cucumber, noggin many times to make it appear as a full head of hair (to him anyway), and a little, tiny face with droopy eyes. Poor kid.
Some of the knuckle-dragging IFB churches have the funny notion that preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ is the main thing, Pilgrim. As near as an uneducated Neanderthal can tell, Jesus, Paul, Peter and the other apostles had the same peculiar idea. Maybe you could enlighten us as to what the main thing is that churches should be keeping the main thing. Until then, I guess I'll just continue preaching the word and hoping I haven't wandered too far off the thoroughfare.
Hi Benji, I agree, but it's difficult not to drift depending upon what the article branches off into extreaoneously. I definitely agree that this thread took a wrong turn. Nothing wrong with the topics being discussed, but the conversations went south, unfortunately. I hope everyone can mend enough to at least be civil, not agree necessarily, but be civil.
Hey John, I just thought of a question I wanted to ask: Given that the church of Rome is busting with false doctrines, which are diametrically opposed to God's Word, do you believe that Christ approves of your alliance with them? If so, what's your reasoning?

Hebrews 10:29 KJV (29)¬† Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
Kev, I'm not sure why you post a verse of scripture which enhances my point, and shows that the atonement was for all, but thank you anyway.
Besides which I'm glad you went to Hebrews, a great book of the Bible which goes into all those marvellous types and antitypes, helping us to gain understanding by looking at picture and fulfilment.
I shall be looking tomorrow at atonement again, and the extent of it, by going to the annual Day of Atonement, the High Priest, the most holy place and mercy seat, the sprinkling of blood, and who that blood was for.
One question needs to be answered before considering this. The OT nation of Israel, were they all saved and are now in heaven? If yes, then limited atonement is true; if no.........
What this person says about Christmas has absolutely no relevance to the Catholic Church and he might even get reprimanded by his Bishop. Of course the main Bishop, the pope might agree with him?
Dan Callahan wrote: ... Within his own diocese a bishop is close to being a sovereign lord. He bears ultimate responsibility for the teaching of Church doctrine, the allocation of funds, the construction of buildings and churches, the assignment of clerical personnel, and the spiritual well-being of his people. Short of the Pope himself, there is no one who can challenge him for leadership or power....
America's most infamous white terrorist, died of natural causes instead of being executed.

John Y, Out of your own mouth, that you posted on these forums, you said, that you would never call yourself Catholic, double minded John.
Here is a good example when a Catholic Presit get the layers of deception pulled away, from their heart & mind. They don't keep attending Romes ways, after knowing through, scripture & Christ. Is the only sufficient means, that can set the captive free, & indeed. N't the bondage of Rome & her ways, through an insufficient Jesus, who can't save sinners, without the adding of the sinner, accordingly in the need of the Sacraments, to be apart of salvation accordingly to Rome.
Canada rejects God, Christ, Holy Spirit, Christianity, the Bible, Gospel, morals, normal living of humanity, decency, ethics, human community traditions, family, human dignity, virtue, righteousness, goodness, love, integrity, ......
Canada prefers Satan's alternatives.
1John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil."
2Cor 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
You're proving my point again IE, Dr. James White is not a "Bible agnostic" he's defended the faith, using the Bible, in over 150 debates, against Muslims, Mormons, Atheists, etc. It's unfortunate that you have decided to misrepresent him.
And aren't we suppose to be critics of every bible translation? If there's something wrong, fix it, not clear as it could , fix it, you are proving my point quite nicely, you make the KJV the perfect standard to which all bible translations ought to be tested, and you won't correct the KJV translation even though you want other translations to be corrected, that's called uneven standards.
Dave wrote: John, there's no such thing as a baptcathlic, except in your mind. How have you John? Good I hope
I have been good. This past Saturday was the final session in the membership preparation class at that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings. I read my testimony before Pastor Steve, the 2 Elders that were in attendance and the 4 other individuals who are also going to become members of that Baptist Church after going before the congregation and being voted on by the members and the Elders. After I become a member of that Baptist Church then logically I will be both Baptist and Catholic since I attend both the local Catholic parish and the local Baptist Church.
You're worshipping your favourite book, There are notable mistakes in the KJV, just human error, nothing major, but mistakes none the less, now do you think God made mistakes? Or just maybe the translator's.
