Absolutely! They were stealing from both God and the people, it was Christ's love of both God and his fellow man that compelled him to clean out the Temple of the thieves.

Yes and what Christ had to say to that 'religious bunch' back then in charge of the Temple and hand holding with the political rulers sure fits with what this nation has elected to rule over US these days.

It appears that we in this nation are not swift enough to clean out our 'peoples' house. No we elect people to represent US that select the most RED religious 'woman' to SPEAK for US. We are a free people and WE are a blessed nation because WE as a nation acknowledged what an ignorant world does not know.... We are endowed by our Creator certain unalienable rights, IF!!!!

**2) Do not comment when you’re angry. You’ll probably regret it and won’t be able to undo it. Anything good to say will still be good in a few hours when the anger has worn off a bit. **

Definitely — I have had to leave the computer, leave threads, and so forth because I was so angry about the way people were attacking.

**11) Be an informer, not a misinformer. Don’t spread information around unless you are reasonably sure it is true. **

Oh, boy! What some people consider the truth — is NOT the truth. This is a difficult one.

Too bad on skipping the links. They are often posted by your friends and are all from FR.

6) Do not feel like you have to have the last word. Say your piece and then rest at peace.

If some folks will NOT post the inaccurate, NEXT-to-last word; I think I can follow this...

The “caucus” article and posts must not compare beliefs or speak in behalf of a belief outside the caucus.

THIS has been abused...

Exactly.... Jesus, Himself, would be called "unchristian" by many ... LOL

When some thinskinned folks cannot DEFEND their beleifs, they try the trick of WWJD?

Usually it only takes posting the 7 WOES, to shut them right up!

Paul would have been a bit MORE bold...

Galatians 5:12
As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!

#17 Never give unsolicited advice! Particularly on posting.

Then SOME folks would miss out on my VERY GOOD ADVICE!

But this is EXACTLY what these chat rooms are for!

Other than passing recipes around.

I think the Religion Moderator has done quite well with the designations that have been provided already for the religion threads. It's a Sisyphean task!

Once in a while they are worth reading but usually not....depends on mood I guess...

Yup!

I figger they are either trying to COVER UP something with all the words; or trying to EXPOSE something with them...

And personally I don't care if Rush hires a flaming gay pit player, but I won't be spending one more dime on anything that puts a cent into Rush's pockets.... I say this with love of course.

O...

K...

I knew an ol’ country girl name of Elsie. She had some words of wisdom and advice that should live on through the ages, for example:

“Never use a shotgun to shoot off a chicken's head when a 9 mm would do just as well.”

and:

“If you keep hitting your face on the steering wheel, it could be that you're trying to double-clutch one of them otto-matics”.

and in a similar tone;

“Don't try to smoke and drink a beer at the same time unless you can keep at least one hand on the wheel”.

I've known other “Elsies”, not a bad one in the bunch! Thanks.

Thanks, I like your tag line... we are ‘evolving’ into a ‘social justice’ system, oh very ‘religious’, with a bunch of little gods running the show distributing ‘rights’.
