  • VANITY: Word Is Out - Vote Fraud in Early Voting in Tennessee

    In the last election when voter fraud in Democrat precincts was widely reported, the Democrats responded by saying, "Oh yeah? Prove it." And, of course, nobody could and it went nowhere.

    If anyone does experience voter fraud when casting their ballot, they need to find a way to document it. Otherwise, it didn't happen.

    I love threads like this. It just goes to show that Trump supporters will go to any length to defend anything boorish, crude or downright stupid their candidate says. It reminds me of an over-indulgent mother defending their spoiled child. It wasn't that long ago, this forum was full of people railing against John "Effin" Kerry and Joe Biden's "Big Effin Deal."

    I live in Arizona, so things will probably be pretty well decided by the time it's my turn to vote. I dislike Trump personally-- I think he's an arrogant jerk and a phony-- and based on his past I don't trust him to deliver, but he's a force to be reckoned with because he's saying what people want to hear. I like Cruz and his positions, but I feel he comes across as unlikable-- and in the presidential race which is in large part a popularity contest, that could hurt him in the general. Rubio's alright. I think he generally comes across as likable, but he's got some self-redeeming to do after last night but, really, I'd vote for any of them if they were the nominee.

    There is an early church tradition, which says, that when the Apostle John was evidently an old man in Ephesus, he had to be carried to the church in the arms of his disciples. At these meetings, he was accustomed to say no more than, "Little children, love one another!" After a time, the disciples wearied at always hearing the same words, asked, "Master, why do you always say this?" "It is the Lord's command," was his reply. "And if this alone be done, it is enough!"

    I'm in no way comparing Marco Rubio to the Apostle John; rather, my point is that, after watching the debate and the clip of Rubio this morning, I think people on both the left and the right who already hate Rubio for other reasons are making too much out of this. It really doesn't bother me that he keeps repeating himself because what he says is true and, in fact, can't be repeated enough.

    The cited factors will not matter to the average voter in the general election. They are vitally important, of course, to hardcore Conservatives of the type found here in FR, but when the time comes for the general it simply boils down to a popularity contest. The reason Romney and McCain lost, when all was said and done, is that they simply did not catch the imagination (i.e. were as likable to the average shallow voter primed by the image-based mainstream media) as Obama was conveyed. It’s been that way since the Nixon-Kennedy race, and most voters are less intelligent and cognizant of the issues now than they were then. Let’s face it: at least half the US population never matured past high school.

    The God of Israel very clearly showed his desire that those consecrated to his liturgical and priestly ministry should be set apart by special clothing. He spends a great deal of time describing it in the Book of Exodus, chapter 28. Not only does it set apart those who serve him in a special and exclusive way, but the beauty and richness of the garb is meant to give glory back to him.

    Liberals hated Reagan’s guts.

    You either were not around at that time or were not paying attention. Reagan was not loved by everyone until after he died. He doesn’t matter now, to liberals

    I was both there AND listening carefully, as I was serving our country at the time, having barely survived the Carter years. Liberals disliked Reagan, but it is in no way close to the way that Trump is being demonized constantly and fanatically. If you can't see the difference, then it was you who were not there in the Reagan days or are out of touch with the anti-Trump mania going on now. Among liberals, he is easily the most vilified and hated man in recent political memory.

    “The answer, IMHO, is that the Dems supporting Trump are buying into the common wisdom that he would be easiest to beat in the general election.”

    Common wisdom, or a head fake? Why would Trump be the easiest to beat when he has double the poll numbers of the closest competitor?

    Polling highest with likely voters among all candidates, or polling highest among likely Republican voters? There's a big difference. Most Democrats wouldn't vote for Trump simply because he is running as a Republican. But more than that, I think Trump supporters underestimate the amount of sheer, frenzied hate the Left is whipping up against him, especially among Hispanics. Trump has become what can only be called a polarizing figure. I think the logic is sound: There are large segments of the population that will make it a point to go out to vote against him because they can't stand the guy.

    ALL Christians believe in the AntiChrist (it's clearly talked about in Scripture), but only a small percentage of all Christians worldwide ascribe to Dispensationalism of the type popular only since the 1800's among certain segments of American Christianity promoted, for example, in the Scofield Reference Bible, The Late, Great Planet Earth, or the Left Behind series. It is that particular belief system that Msgr. Pope was referring to.

    "But most can escape it [hell] by serving time in a mythical place called Purgatory."

    Wrong again. The Catholic Church does not teach that anyone (let alone "most") "escapes hell" by going to purgatory. Church teaching is that when one dies, his or her destination, either heaven or hell, is already set. That's it: either heaven or hell. Purgatory is not for those that deserve hell, but only for those who are already destined to heaven, but still have some attachment to sin when they die or have not fully made an attempt before they die to make some kind of reparation for the damage they have caused in their lives by the sins they have committed. This is a simple matter of justice and would describe a lot of us including you.

    Hebrews 12:14 says we are to strive for the holiness without which no one will enter heaven. Revelation 21:27 says nothing unclean will enter heaven.

    Let me ask you: Can you presume to say that if you died right now, you have no attachment to sin of any kind and that you would be able to stand before the All Holy God still attached to your sinful habits-- or am I addressing an All-Perfect human? Doesn't it make sense to you that there would be some kind of cleansing or "purging" that would have to take place so you could not take those sinful habits or attachments into heaven?

    "Catholics are taught as well that there is not a literal hell, or heaven..."

    That is not accurate. The Catholic Church teaches there is a hell and many are going there. If there are Catholics that teach otherwise, they are heretics. If they believe otherwise, they are ignorant of the teachings of the Church.

    From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

    1033 We cannot be united with God unless we freely choose to love him. But we cannot love God if we sin gravely against him, against our neighbor or against ourselves: "He who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him." Our Lord warns us that we shall be separated from him if we fail to meet the serious needs of the poor and the little ones who are his brethren. To die in mortal sin without repenting and accepting God's merciful love means remaining separated from him for ever by our own free choice. This state of definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed is called "hell."

    1034 Jesus often speaks of "Gehenna" of "the unquenchable fire" reserved for those who to the end of their lives refuse to believe and be converted, where both soul and body can be lost. Jesus solemnly proclaims that he "will send his angels, and they will gather . . . all evil doers, and throw them into the furnace of fire," and that he will pronounce the condemnation: "Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire!"

    1035 The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, "eternal fire." The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs.

    This very suspicious quote always appears either without attribution, or with just a date (1615), or a claim that it was said "at the trial" of Galileo. It is certainly not in the spirit of what is reported of Bellarmine by reliable sources, which do not report this or other quotes by him.

    The origins are likely found in a letter by Bellarmine noted here which says things that are quite close:

    "First. I say that it seems to me that Your Reverence and Galileo did prudently to content yourself with speaking hypothetically, and not absolutely, as I have always believed that Copernicus spoke. For to say that, assuming the earth moves and the sun stands still, all the appearances are saved better than with eccentrics and epicycles, is to speak well; there is no danger in this, and it is sufficient for mathematicians. But to want to affirm that the sun really is fixed in the center of the heavens and only revolves around itself (i. e., turns upon its axis ) without traveling from east to west, and that the earth is situated in the third sphere and revolves with great speed around the sun, is a very dangerous thing, not only by irritating all the philosophers and scholastic theologians, but also by injuring our holy faith and rendering the Holy Scriptures false. For Your Reverence has demonstrated many ways of explaining Holy Scripture, but you have not applied them in particular, and without a doubt you would have found it most difficult if you had attempted to explain all the passages which you yourself have cited."

    Note that critical parts here are left out when the quote is used. Bellarmine appeals to scientific authority (mathematicians) and also appeals to the need to exegete passages properly (more in section 3).

    "Second. I say that, as you know, the Council [of Trent] prohibits expounding the Scriptures contrary to the common agreement of the holy Fathers. And if Your Reverence would read not only the Fathers but also the commentaries of modern writers on Genesis, Psalms, Ecclesiastes and Josue, you would find that all agree in explaining literally (ad litteram) that the sun is in the heavens and moves swiftly around the earth, and that the earth is far from the heavens and stands immobile in the center of the universe. Now consider whether in all prudence the Church could encourage giving to Scripture a sense contrary to the holy Fathers and all the Latin and Greek commentators. Nor may it be answered that this is not a matter of faith, for if it is not a matter of faith from the point of view of the subject matter, it is on the part of the ones who have spoken. It would be just as heretical to deny that Abraham had two sons and Jacob twelve, as it would be to deny the virgin birth of Christ, for both are declared by the Holy Ghost through the mouths of the prophets and apostles."

    "Third. I say that if there were a true demonstration that the sun was in the center of the universe and the earth in the third sphere, and that the sun did not travel around the earth but the earth circled the sun, then it would be necessary to proceed with great caution in explaining the passages of Scripture which seemed contrary, and we would rather have to say that we did not understand them than to say that something was false which has been demonstrated. But I do not believe that there is any such demonstration; none has been shown to me. It is not the same thing to show that the appearances are saved by assuming that the sun really is in the center and the earth in the heavens. I believe that the first demonstration might exist, but I have grave doubts about the second, and in a case of doubt, one may not depart from the Scriptures as explained by the holy Fathers. I add that the words ' the sun also riseth and the sun goeth down, and hasteneth to the place where he ariseth, etc.' were those of Solomon, who not only spoke by divine inspiration but was a man wise above all others and most learned in human sciences and in the knowledge of all created things, and his wisdom was from God. Thus it is not too likely that he would affirm something which was contrary to a truth either already demonstrated, or likely to be demonstrated. And if you tell me that Solomon spoke only according to the appearances, and that it seems to us that the sun goes around when actually it is the earth which moves, as it seems to one on a ship that the beach moves away from the ship, I shall answer that one who departs from the beach, though it looks to him as though the beach moves away, he knows that he is in error and corrects it, seeing clearly that the ship moves and not the beach. But with regard to the sun and the earth, no wise man is needed to correct the error, since he clearly experiences that the earth stands still and that his eye is not deceived when it judges that the moon and stars move. And that is enough for the present. I salute Your Reverence and ask God to grant you every happiness."

    The third point is the most critical, because it reveals that contrary to how the quotes are used, Bellarmine was ready to submit to the possibility that heliocentrism was true and interpret the text accordingly, and that he also appealed to scientific authority (of Solomon, however misplaced we may think this is) as well as to observation. In his view, this was a case of "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" -- and surely Skeptics can respect that (especially since so many astronomers of the day accepted geocentrism).

    The usual suspects are in full spin cycle now. MSNBC reports:

    Vicki Cowart, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, said in a statement Saturday that witness accounts indicate it was motivated by opposition to abortion. NBC News has not confirmed those accounts.

    "Today, we are learning that eyewitnesses confirm that the man who will be charged with the tragic and senseless shooting that resulted in the deaths of three people and injuries to nine others at Planned Parenthood's health center in Colorado Springs was motivated by opposition to safe and legal abortion," Cowart said.

    "This is an appalling act of violence targeting access to health care and terrorizing skilled and dedicated health care professionals," she said.

    U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch called the shooting rampage "a horrific attack" in a statement Saturday and said the federal government stands ready to offer any assistance it can.

    "This unconscionable attack was not only a crime against the Colorado Springs community, but a crime against women receiving healthcare services at Planned Parenthood, law enforcement seeking to protect and serve, and other innocent people," Lynch said. "It was also an assault on the rule of law, and an attack on all Americans' right to safety and security."

    I saw her perform this song in concert on her "Get Closer" tour in the 1980's. I've always loved her voice and she was such a knockout when she was younger.

    I bought lots of her albums back in the day, and still enjoy her music, but because of her outspoken Lefty politics I will never put another dime in her pocket. Not that she doesn't have a right to her (wrong) opinions (this is America, after all) but I don't want my money to end up in the coffers of politicians that are seeking to destroy this country.
