  • Is this Real? [Dorian Johnson recants story? Wilson to be cleared?]

    Whether or not this is true, if I were Darren Wilson I would flee not just Missouri, but the USA. There is NO WAY he will get a fair hearing on this, as this is OJ/Trayvon Martin all over again. Media frenzy, and bigoted (against our legal system) “protesters.”

    Maybe New Zealand or Australia...or perhaps somewhere in South America. I’d drive to the Mexican border, cross over and catch a plane out of Mexico city (as our Feds here may try to stop him (even unarrested/unindicted as yet)at an international airport here) bribing the right people if necessary.

    It is sad that the USA under Mr. Obama has come to this, but in matters where race is involved—justice for a Caucasian is highly unlikely.

    Officer Wilson’s life—and that of his whole family—is very much at risk—and I really don’t expect justice for him in this, even if he were “set free,” and not indicted or tried, as there are now thousands who want him dead. Thousands more would know his face, and want to kill him too—if/when this goes to trial—regardless whether he was eventually declared not-guilty or not.

    Officer Wilson’s life in the USA is ruined.

    I’m not a dispensationalist, however the Church of Rome too believes in an invisible Church, otherwise you could not logically call Protestants Christians. The Eastern Orthodox too deny the authority of Rome, but are just as old—or older (since the Church began in Jerusalem, not Rome, and the Eastern Orthodox too, have apostolic succession) and your body recognizes them as fellow Christians...

    To say that the Church of Rome alone is catholic, is just ignorant chauvinism.

    I think it needs to be known—especially to conservative-Christians—that Israel is one of the most secular countries in the world. Orthodox Jews are a small (though influential) minority, and probably a majority of Israelis are non-observant religiously.... either agnostic or atheist—very much like you’ll find the nations of Europe.

    The people of Israel are NOT, by in large, the fiddler-on-the-roof-devout-chosen-people of fundamentalist Christian imagination. Of course that doesn’t mean they are not a 1st world democratic republic (though also very socialistic), which respects liberty and human rights—in a sea of violent wretched dictatorships.... who deserves our whole support.

    Yes, I’ve read that in the earliest years of the Church, the Romans called Christians a people who “never died alone.” Typically dying people in the ancient world would be literally abandoned (as there were almost no hospitals) due to the terror pagans have of death.

    The extra bad thing though with my Dad’s friends are, he is NOT dying...rather, in spite of his legs, is quite a healthy 92 year old.

    My mother faithfully stays with him every single day—but his pious Christian friends, who visited regularly when he lived on a nice farm....stay away.

    My father is in a a nursing home, and I can tell you it is incredibly sad how, other than family, very few visitors he gets.

    The nursing home is a part of the retirement community my parents have lived in for over 10 years. My Dad has many friends there, and, from outside the home too--as they are in the same area where he spent his career and lived for 65+ years. My folks were very active in their Church too....yet, they are lucky if one person (an assigned Deacon) comes once a quarter.

    It's an extremely NICE nursing home too, no bad smells, very clean, well maintained, polite staff, etc. etc....

    It's just incredibly SHAMEFUL though how few will visit this very kind, friendly, gregarious, non-Altheimers man....and his friends just seem to be waiting for him to die. I will bet Dad will have a large funeral too, as he (was) very beloved, at least before paralysis of his legs put him in the nursing home.... I wonder if I will ask all the people who will show up for his funeral, offering all their care and sympathy--WHY DIDN'T YOU CARE ENOUGH TO SEE HIM WHEN HE WAS ALIVE????

    All I can say is that people are cowards when it comes to hospital/nursing home visits. Speaks very poorly of the love that Christians are commanded to show one to another.

    a drug that causes one of those products of conception to exit the womb prematurely

    That's not an easy question to answer though, since we're usually talking about micro-biological actions.

    From what I've read, it would appear to me, IUDs ALWAYS cause spontaneous abortions, and virtually any oral contraceptive--while not being the primary method they use of birth control (shutting down the ovaries) have a 2ndary effect, a certain percentage of the time--of not allowing a fertilized egg to implant in the womb--thereby causing a spontaneous abortion.

    I'm a firm Protestant, but more and more I see the wisdom of naming all birth control simply immoral.

    French Huguenauts--Calvinists--were THE most effective in hiding thousands of Jewish children during the war.

    Historically Huguenauts were the most persecuted Christian religion in France, having been slaughtered by the tens of thousands by the Catholics in the late 1500s.

    The FIRST European settlement in what is now the USA were Huguenauts, in what is now Jacksonville, Florida. A year after their settlement, all 400 were slaughtered by a Spanish army of Conquistadors, when they refused to convert to Roman Catholicism. These Spaniards then established St. Augustine, Florida.

    Ummmm, perhaps you need a course in basic physics. Burning charcoal IS combustion, producing CO (that is carbon monoxide) along with CO2. The tobacco in a hookah is burned by that charcoal--again PRODUCING COMBUSTION.... and only then having its smoke.... brought down and cooled through the water. The cooled tobacco smoke may be is still, however smoke....that is the product of combustion.

    I am actually an (occasional) hookah smoker (though I prefer cigars) and a hookah is nothing other than a water cooled tobacco pipe--which has the same kinds of dangers as a conventional tobacco pipe.

    More than even BC is feminism itself—which brought ABC into the limelight, and using shame pushed its acceptance.

    If, as modern feminists claim, there is no difference between men and women other than plumbing, and there are no roles distinct to each sex—everyone is interchangeable in public and private life—than logically, why wouldn’t that apply to the bedroom? No wonder supporters of feminism, abortion,and, homosexuality are usually all the same people.

    Modern feminism has been one of the most profoundly anti-feminine—and therefore anti-human—influences on our society.

    The acceptance of any kind of homosexual behavior—much more the abomination of sodomy-marriage—has been and is increasingly defining the lines between true and apostate Christianity.

    Conservative denominations like the LCMS must develop and have clear disciplinary actions for pastors or seminary professors—or even lay church teachers—that will excommunicate those who teach that homosexual behavior or “marriage” is acceptable.

    One of the big separators between evangelical & orthodox Christians of all kinds from the liberals used to be the issue of a few so-called evangelicals and emergents have rolled over and are going with the enormous flow of culture... Such persons who cling to sinful teaching must be rejected and removed from our fellowships like cancer.

    The early Church did this with all kinds of false teachers; we cannot be afraid to excommunicate false teachers today—for the love of Christ and His Body.

    A couple of skulls were missing, from which the historians assumed were probably put on pikes near the pit where the bodies were buried (on top of a hill), as a gruesome warning to others.....

    That's not to say we shouldn't keep talking about it...but I'm not sure it applies to the events of today.

    I think the point of the argument is that Putin himself was educated by and dedicated to, the same regime that perpetrated the unthinkable barbarities and genocide on Ukraine. Therefore his mind and sensibilities we cannot expect to be what we consider sane and normal.... Putin was raised as, and still is, a barbarian.

    It would be as if the Prime Minister of modern Germany was raised a Nazi, and had been a Gestapo officer, and had stated that the fall of the 3rd Reich was the worst catastrophe in the 20th Century.... (this never happened and is unthinkable in post-war Germany). Still, if we imagine that, there's no doubt we would be thinking that such a leader would still be a dangerous heartless Nazi in his heart.

    Similarly, Putin--ex-high-ranking KGB officer--is still a Russian Nationalist (if not necessarily a Communist), raised with barbarous and brutal totalitarian assumptions on the role of government--who would no-doubt defend Stalin's genocide in Ukraine. In comparison, he's being mild there....

    I’m fully aware of the whole charade of “anti-Zionism” and how damaging that has been to the just cause of Israel. However, the European media basically STARTS to the Left of Pacifica NPR, and Europeans have been barraged with well funded (Saudi $$$??) ant-Israel propaganda for at least a generation now.

    Ask your average American Ivy-League university student....and they too have been brain-washed by the anti-Israel, “poor little innocent deprived Palestinian” “big-bad-Israel” propaganda machine too.

    I honestly do not think however, the current anti-Semitism in Europe is home-grown, it’s a product of a very well funded/crafted propaganda effort by Islamist money, and immigration.

    Mark Steyn has written about how, in incredible irony, the over-the-top multi-culturalism in Europe (and in the USA) was begun and fostered out of guilt for past racism (in Europe the Holocaust, and in the USA, slavery and segregation) but opened the floodgates for mass immigration into Europe of some of the most bigoted, racist, illiberal, anti-Israel peoples on the planet: Muslims and Eastern Europeans.

    Governments and academic/cultural institutions are afraid of offending the new immigrants, and so go along with their anti-Semitism—which only encourages the 10% or so of the native population who still harbor neo-Nazi sympathies...

    So hyper-liberal/multi-culturalist cowardice, very ironically fosters hyper-illiberal bigotry.

    “Fascism” in the popular imagination, due to Hitler and WWII is irrevocably linked to Nazism, even though you are correct, Mussolini, the original fascist, was not anti-Semitic.

    Although technically accurate, when you call someone a fascist, typically they think Nazi/anti-Semite....and liberals in the USA are not that (yet). You can’t convince anyone they’re wrong too, if they think you’re just calling them Nazis.

    Leninism is not the same as Marxism either, as Lenin believed an elite (the communist party) would have to lead in any revolution—whereas Marx thought it would occur as a spontaneous process.

    Mr. Mitchell’s analogy to different breeds of poisonous spiders is on the mark though, as who cares what breed exactly the current statists are—they are still poisonous.

    And STATISM is actually the essence of fascism, according to Mussolini himself:

    “All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.”
