I guess these wolves will take care of the problem with feral cats that are eating all the birds and other small wildlife. Anyone who keeps a cat at home but lets it outside has to realize they are doing the same hunting, no matter how well they are fed.
I have heard that the US Congress opens every day's session with a prayer. I would like the mainstream media to publicize that. Wouldn't that be something? I have also heard that in some cities, they allow any religion to come in and do the 'invocation' so that in Alaska, I heard one town had a guy pray to the great spaghetti god in the sky.
Interesting headline. I wonder how many Mormons are out there. I don't think they make up a major percentage of Americans, and we need to remember that in the eyes of most people doing the counting, like the Census Bureau, Gallup, etc, the Catholic Church has the largest number of Christians in the USA, if not the entire world. Can you remember if you have ever seen a survey that leaves Catholics out of the counting? I haven't seen any.
"Beto" is getting into deep waters here. Not that he stands a chance of winning the Democrat Party's nomination. He is white, male and not Hispanic. Can't they find someone who is truly Hispanic, like a Marco Rubio? Don't they have any blacks of American-born parents, not this phony DA from LA whose parent is from Jamaica (and owned and sold slaves)
Mezuzah is the Scripture that many Jews will have fixed to their doors-some put it on all their doors, some only to entry doors to homes. It does look like a talisman--some object that contains power, to protect, to enhance, to give you good fortune ('rabbit's foot, anyone? baseball players have many superstitions along these lines).
Too bad, 'Adriel,' that most of the media in the US have not gotten the message about the Catholic Church not being Christian. For them, as well as for most people walking down the street in the US, it is the Largest Christian Church in the USA. They would say the same thing about Mormons, but some might doubt the JWs being called Christians. Then, when you try to pin them down on what exactly are the JWs, they would say, 'They're a cult, doesn't everyone know that! Any group that makes its followers stand on the corners every Saturday or go door to door has got to be a cult! On that criteria, the bicycle-riding Mormon missionaries would also be cultists.
This also reminds me that most people sitting in the pew on Sunday would not be able to correct the Pope on this point, because they don't know the basic doctrines of the Christian faith.
When I saw the headline, I wondered...was he planting false churches? A lot of people who comment here would call a lot of other churches with that name. While most of the media reporting on 'church affairs' would consider JWs, Mormons, and Catholics as being churches, I think many here would disagree.
I wonder how many people gave offerings for the support of Liberty University, which ended up being part of the $4.7 million. As to it being a 'gay friendly' hostel, that would figure, being on South Beach. This Falwell has never impressed me as having the smarts to be a president of a college, but then, it has been a while since I watched that movie, "Animal House" which I recommend for every parent and grandparent saving $$ for their kids' college education.
Usually, for all these British news items, my comment is..does not apply! does not apply (to USA)! But....here is an exception! I do think this would be the same in the USA, though maybe less so. On one hand, there are more devout, practicing evangelicals, Mormons, JWs, and..gasp..even Catholics are reading the Bible... But on the other hand, youths today are taking in a huge amount of info at college, high schools, public libraries, etc that is anti-Biblical. You could even say that many preachers are not helping because they will talk about recent news or books to gather their examples, rather than talk about examples in the Bible. By the way, Happy Yom Kippur!
Right on, Marty, this article is rubbish. It's a wonder WND--World Nut Daily--would even publish it. I thought WaPo or NY Times would cover it, as an answer to conservatives saying there is no religion in school. We can stack this story alongside the ones about how high the percentage is of prisoners who say they believe in God. I think it is over 90 percent, but it also includes the many Nation of Islam disciples, Roman Catholics, Mormons, JWs, etc.
THanks to the Evil Capitalist System we live under, this doll will not prosper and will be taken off the shelves soon. Except that some liberal parents will buy them for their kids to play with (but then, the kids will dress them as girls). Wasn't GI Joe invented to allow boys to play with dolls? I have a friend who tells me he liked to set up a fort from the Lincoln Log set, surround it with those plastic army figures, and then bombard it with dominoes, using a popsicle stick as a lever.
It is easy to confuse Hong Kong Chinese with the Mainland Chinese, which was done in previous post about an underground Christian movement. The 2 are very different groups, like dcomparing Cubans who have arrived recently with those who have lived in the South Florida area for the past 50 years.
Sure, there may be some "Cuban Solidarity" but the older Cubans know they will never get back the country they left in the same conditions it was in when they left it.
As a matter of fact, you could not go back to Chicago, Kansas City, Peoria, or Spring Hill and not cry about how it has changed in the past 50 years.
In addition, Hong Kong Chinese even speak Chinese differently than the Mainland Chinese (not that anyone here would notice that, but if you listen to John Derbyshire's podcasts, you would). There is even a note of 'racism' between the 2 groups, according to John's recent podcast. I do think it is ironic that the Chinese authorities want to outlaw the use of face masks, since as we all know, 'they all look alike to me' which makes me think the hardest job in the world is to be a police detective in China--how hard would it be to tell one guy from another?
Do you remember the news item here at SA last month about how the protesters were singing hymns? It made you think that there was a strong Christian element to the protest. Therefore, with this news story, we can throw the other one in the trash, saying it is only a case of wishful thinking.
Check out the Unz Review website for a story about the 2 black teens who killed a 59-yr old white guy, Lions Club member, who was at the fair in Frederick, Maryland, when it was being closed down and packed up. You will find other cases there of black on white violence where the punishment does not fit the crime.
I would not be so sure they would win in court. They might end up with a Clinton or Obama-appointed judge. Look at the Asian students who sued Harvard for discriminating against them. The judge said that there was no 'animus' in that set up, that the college was just applying a diverse student body. Of course, logic tells us that the judge could not say that if blacks were complaining about being left out. So, like the case of the US Marines female general, who said that 'our diversity is our strength,' many people think this is the Gospel for today. But let me ask the general, when it is time to have your eyes operated on for cataracts, do you want a diverse, though not very competent, medical group of doctors handling your surgery? Or do you want the Asian guy was at the head of his medical school class. When you cross that bridge, do you want it built by a diverse company that has made lots of errors in the past because their engineers, though highly diverse, really don't have the foggiest idea of what they are doing. Meanwhile, do you think in Russia or China they are worried about being diverse in their militaries?
Well said, 'Adriel' I think this November's elections might show some early reaction of the public toward the Dems. I am hoping the public will have woken up to the slam the Mainstream Media is doing to the President, and will connect all the Dems to that.
