SnW912minded 66p and bocephus5 In the immortal words of Jack Nicholson "Can't we all just get along" I think you both have valid points and you are both patriots, you both want the same thing right? This is a distraction from the cause.
My family landed in Baltimore, my ancestor was Lord Baltimore.
I told you no matter what kind of defense I gave you would mock that too, your defense? You had none except to say mine wasn't valid. You have no evidence to the contrary.What you gave as a defense was not the answer to the question on topic but to a later question "why are you here?" If you were logical you would know that you can not prove something does not exist but you can prove it does. Read "Being Logical" By D.Q.McInery. If you want some one to take you seriously in a debate you should avoid vague and ambiguous language, that inhibits your ability for clear and effective communication. You have side stepped my questions every time and accuse me of doing the same.But that is exactly what the politicians do, you have obviously been picking up the better points of evasion by watching too much Obama and Company. I gave you a chance to debate as you asked but you chose to play the same old game. That is why I chose not to discuss this with you to begin with because I knew you would not have anything logical to say and would continue to rant and rave without a logical point.I gave you my evidence, whether you agreed with it or not. You gave nothing in the way of evidence just more vague ranting about my "irrational' Bible. As far as being a "Spiritual " being , I am and yes I can prove it , but you still would not believe. It is said t"here are none so blind as those who will not see..." I asked you specific questions, you never answered . I answered your questions.Believing in God is the 2nd Principal of this site,and I ask you again if you do not believe in the principals on this site why are here? You answered "Because I desire to defend the concept of individual rights" No one has infringed upon anyones rights. But if you don't believe in the Principals of the site so again why are here? Don't bother answering , you are here to stir things up and fight with those you are supposed to be fighting with.
You misquote me, I said I don't debate people who are uneducated in the subject being debated. How can you debate some thing you do not know nor understand ? I am sure you can debate the economy or even politics because you seem to be literate enough but as I said , you can not know things of the Spirit because you are not a Spiritual creature. ( One having Gods Spirit dwell in you, maybe you are and are playing "Devils advocate?") Who says the Bible is unexamined ? I my self have spent the last 30 years "examining" it. What core beliefs do you suppose you attacked? That polygamy was rampant and condoned by God? Neither is true . Are we talking about Abraham? He was never married to Hagar, but did have a child with her which was against Gods wishes , he sinned and he would not be the last to do so, we are still living with the consequences of those actions. Issac ? Only one wife Rebekah, had children only by her, and was a faithful husband. Jacob? Yes Jacob did have two wives, and he had children with two maids. Then he converted in Genesis 32:24-30 and later put idolatry out of his house, Gen. 35:2-4. After his conversion he had only one wife Rachel. In Patriarchal times this was a "worldly " custom for wealthy men and kings to have multiple wives, not a "Godly" custom. In fact God forbade polygamy. "When thou art come unto the land which the Eternal thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me. . . . Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away" (Deut. 17:14, 17). It is spoken of as "THIS LAW" in verses 18 and 19. King David also sinned and repented, "And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Eternal" (I Samuel 12:13). You will read of David's private prayer of repentance to God in the 51st Psalm -- the prayer of a really broken and contrite heart. It was real repentance. David turned from polygamy. I could go on but I won't. People are human and they make mistakes (Clinton,Edwards, Kennedy lots of men have had this weakness for women, a condition as old as time so it seems) and these men did make mistakes and ask God's forgiveness and went on to do Gods work. God never condones polygamy. God is the same yesterday , today and tomorrow, he does not change. People are human and make mistakes period. God gives us the freedom of will to choose to obey him or not. Is that enough defense for you? I really don't care that you disagree with me that was never the point was you did not know what you were talking about and I did not feel attacked because I know God and I know his Word because I have examined it , have you? Believing in God is one of the 912 principals, "I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life."
God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” if you do not believe why are you here?
I agree, even if this kid did make a prank call it does not warrant this kind of treatment lets go after the real terrorist how 'bout it! If they start throwing every kid who makes a prank call in jail we really are in trouble.
Know1 What I said was it probably was it was "not " funny but I hoped our CIA would not be so easily startled. In other countries such as France for instance they have laws about how much English can be in the media and for how many hours a day to preserve the French language. You say you understand peoples frustration but do you really? We go to order at KFC and no one speaks English except maybe the Mgr. The classifieds ask for bilingual people for jobs, we make our kids take a foreign language, but we don't make people who want a green card know even rudimentary English? We spend tons of money in our schools to hire teachers to teach ESL because there are so many kids who can't speak English . What other country accommodates this kind of situation? This site is called vent for a reason and the natives get a little wild sometimes, so if you need a tamer venue maybe you should go to stand up and lead instead. I don't agree with what les_govt did but I understand. There are a lot of trolls here that just like to stir up trouble and keep people distracted. If you are not one I am sure there are more productive ways for you to communicate that after all we are supposed to be on the same team so instead of playing devils advocate just be honest and say "I understand your frustration but there are better ways to handle the situation. " to les_govt . BTW I do communicate with my Congressmen and Senators regularly. I apologize for calling you a troll,.
Remember 1 Corinthians 2:14
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." They cannot understand :( they are body and soul only .
Maybe he will start a CONVOY and they will write a song about it. HaHa
LOL. That made me smile.It is already like that in New Mexico.
Klash I will try to decipher your rant. Are you referring to what I said about the Old Testament being for our learning? Why do you care? You obviously are not a Believer in God as evidenced by your mocking tone. Trying to explain anything of this nature would be impossible due to the fact that you are a natural man. 1 Corinthians 2:14
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
I was saying that you shouldn't comment on things you know nothing about, nor can understand. No matter what I say you will have an ugly and uninformed retort. I don't debate with people who are uneducated in the subject being debated, it's not sporting.
