In case you didn't notice, the info was obtained through a conducted study supervised by the WHO, but what does clodrick know? Cuba wasn't the one to make the claims.
You are correct in that the "prosperity" gospel flowed into Manifest Destiny as practiced by Polk and others. The idea that God ordained the US to rule the world and expand and own it in order to civilize others was a matter of policy. That being said....that has nothing to do with Christianity if one wants to tie it to being an adherent to Christ's teachings.
More activity for the supreme court.
Well, so much for the socialist medicine haters....It is Cuba. Congrats down there folks and good job in the medical breakthrough. Hopefully those in Florida won't hate you to death over it.
Wait until the first lab tech drops a petri dish and spills the fertilized cells and they die on the floor, and he/she is arrested for negligent homicide as a mass killer.
"Most "Christians" who came to the new world weren't missionary,but a good number of them murdered in the name of Jesus."
Who labelled them Christian brother lake? You? You don't count. Remember what Jesus said..."I never knew you." That comment was addressed to people claiming to be followers of Christ. They were only followers in their own mind.....just as many folks calling themselves Christian.
" Children are not consenting adults."
You never know nikkorott. Equal protection under the law would say that the child has the same rights as the adult...the right to claim that consent is age discrimination. After all...if abortion says that the fetus is a real person and deserves protection as a person under the law, what does age have to do with anything? The can of worms is now open.
"Dakin,pedophilia is a felony.
It's punished harshly unless you are a Priest."
Gay marriage was a felony also awhile back..or it was not legal. Today's felony is tomorrow's norm.
"Myself and members of my family have had DNA testing and the findings are interesting."
From which monkey or fish did you evolve lake? When you find out, perhaps extinction for that specie would have been in order before your DNA came forth.
"Same sex marriage is between consenting adults. Pedophilia is viewed as wrong by a vast majority of people believers or not and you really use a terrible apples and oranges example."
I think you misconstrued the point I was making rogere. Same sex marriage came about for one reason only. The gay community argued successfully that they were born that way....God made them that way, therefore discriminating against it would be discriminating against something over which they have no control.
What I was bringing up is that there is a very good chance, with that argument, that a pedophile will argue successfully that they can't be discriminated against, because their condition is not a learned one but a natural one. As Pandora's box has now been opened, we will see what the future brings. Because pedophilia is viewed as wrong by a vast majority of people only shows how opinions can change when faced with "science." If science says genetically that some are programmed to lust after children, and this is a natural thing, what will the courts decide?
Although I am very liberal, I actually believe that unless a business is providing a life/death product, then the owner of the business should be allowed to refuse service to anyone for whatever reason. The customer is not being mandated to shop there, so why should an owner be required to sell product they own to somebody to whom they don't want to sell product. I do agree that the old sign "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone" should apply except in very limiting circumstances. The potential customer that might feel jilted certainly has the right to tell others to boycott the business, etc. It is similar to owning your own home but only allowing those you want to enter it. Is that also wrong? I find nothing wrong with a store owner saying that they will sell X product to seniors for 50% off. Is it discrimination? Sure, but the product belongs to the store owner and he/she should have the right to sell it to whom he/she wants and at a price he/she wants to put on it. If he/she wants to sell product X normally for $2, but sees a child that wants it and tells the child they can buy it for $.50, that should be the store owner's prerogative. As I said earlier, this should not apply to life/death situations such as medical assistance, emergency drug sales, etc, but if a businessperson is so bad and discriminates on so many things, he/she will soon be out of business, as customers are not forced to shop there. However, I would require that the business owner have a placard in their store saying they can discriminate and over what.
It is fine if you think I am over reacting. As I had previously stated, Christians (people who are part of the "church"), should expect things to get worse, as that is what Jesus told his early followers. I expect some to call me homophobic or some other derogatory term insinuating I dislike the individuals who think SSM is "normal". I can see plenty of it in demonstrations, but I expect such. People who follow Christ will be persecuted. It is fulfillment of prophecy. Didn't all but one of the eleven disciples after Judas suffer violent deaths and persecution? Jesus didn't say it would end then.
I don't exactly know what you are trying to say. I would guess that there are plenty of gay businesses owned by a homosexual where hiring practices lean toward hiring people with the same homosexual tendencies. We are just at a point in history where the tendency is to feel no problem with offending God, as long as you offend him by not offending another person. The government's desire to say homosexuality is normal behavior will certainly lead to children seeing much more of it displayed in public as normal behavior. Soon, men will carry babies with medical technology, and all this will be done so as not to offend....except of course offend God. The "Church's" response to any sin should be to acknowledge it for what it is and show why it separates us from our creator. When we refuse to acknowledge sin for what it is, therein lies a problem. Have a good one.
Yes...until residential solar is included in the equation, it is difficult to assess solar's additions to the energy equation. If you go to enphase enlighten on Google and then view public systems, you will get a vague idea of how much just those systems using enphase inverters contribute to the grid. It looks like they contributed about 3.5 TWH, but even that figure is dubious overall. Loads of people have non reporting inverter systems, so only the utility company would know how much each pv home system contributed and those off grid wouldn't be counted at all, so the EIA's figures are quite skewed except to report how much over one megawatt solar systems produce. Utilities are not real hot in getting on the solar bandwagon anyway, as it may be their demise when PUC's start asking utility companies why they charge so much and yet have little cost in their production. I am just happy that my system produces way more than I consume, and it has near no maintenance, no moving parts and a 20-25 year warranty. I am waiting for Mr. BS's total kwh consumption per month, but he hasn't provided it. He says it would cost him over $100K to go off grid, but it would be interesting to see his bills to see if what he is saying has any validity.
You are correct in many of your points, but to believers in Jesus, this behavior and what is happening should come as no surprise. After all, Jesus predicted moral decay, worldwide unrest, and he also predicted that much of it would be "sold" as good behavior to fool even the believer. What I see happening is nothing more than validating Jesus' predictions. Things aren't supposed to get better for believers....at least here in the flesh. The flesh is the flesh, and those who chase after it might get the rewards of the flesh, but at the same time lose their future rewards. The early church was about preparation for eternity and not worrying about human laws, as they are temporary and flawed. People of faith should expect to be harassed, called bigots and haters, as this is what must happen before Jesus' return. After all, from biblical point, satan was called the "prince of this world." That is quite a title. The flesh shall eventually pass away.
