    Bible Bulletin Board ^ | John MacArthur
    Obviously over the last number of weeks we have on Sunday nights been addressing issues that are on our minds and hearts at this time in our nation when we had been subjected to terrorists' attacks. I'm trying to keep up with all of the nuances, all of the twists and turns in the road as we go and try to shed some biblical light on the issues at hand. One of the new features in our country in recent weeks is this obsession with "God Bless America." In itself certainly a nice tune and a well-crafted song that was...

    DENVER - The request befuddled Leah Daughtry. The experienced political hand in charge of planning next month's Democratic National Convention - a self-described "black chick from Brooklyn" and ordained Pentecostal minister who keeps a Bible in her purse - didn't know what to tell the atheists. Daughtry, 44, was preparing for an Aug. 24 interfaith service that will open the Democrats' gathering here - a first for a party that hasn't always gotten God. Before her was an angry letter from a secularist group that wanted to know whether atheists would be on the podium. "Atheists speaking at an interfaith...

    When did Americans begin to take the Constitution for granted? When did our vision for justice blur so dangerously? As activists and Americans, every day we gaze, gawk, and stare at a President who defies the values we hold dearest. Some of us are angry. Others terrified. Many of us are both. And yet as members of People For the American Way, we can repair our battered Constitution. We can fight off President Bush's coming assaults on the Constitution. We can see a better way. It takes vision. And it takes action. If you're angry or terrified or share our...

    Fifteen years ago, when I was working at the White House, I commuted with a very close friend who worked at a think tank in Washington D.C. After the fall of the Soviet Union, our conversations in the car often turned toward what would constitute the next major world threat. My friend, who is one of the smartest people I know, didn’t hesitate in his opinion: it would be the rise of radical Islamic fundamentalism. Day after day, he presented the growing evidence that finally convinced me as well. That was very early in the 1990’s, when Islam was the...

    Scotland's University of Edinburgh, after proposing a ban on Bibles and denying a Christian campus group the right to hold a conference on the immorality of homosexuality, has extended the welcome mat to the school's Pagan Society to hold its annual meeting on campus next month.

    Man says word cost him a job Law allows Iowa employers wide latitude to terminate work. By NICHOLAS BERGIN German, Spaniard, Canadian, Chilean. Do those words offend you? Are they words that identify a group of people? How about a generalization involving such groups, such as: all Canadians eat fish. Does this offend? Let's say, you are offended. What consequences should follow? Is a stern warning deserved? Sensitivity training? How about a job? Pipe welder Bill Hen– deley Jr. said he was fired from his job Wednesday for using the word "Mexican" in describing a person from Mexico at...

    Washington, DC -- "This decision marks a dramatic departure from four decades of Supreme Court rulings that upheld a woman's right to choose and recognized the importance of women's health. Today's decision blatantly defies the Court's recent decision in 2000 striking down a state partial-birth abortion law because of its failure to provide an exception for the health of the mother. As the Supreme Court recognized in Roe v. Wade in 1973, this issue is complex and highly personal; the rights and lives of women must be taken into account. It is precisely this erosion of our constitutional rights that...

Stephen brought the suit in an attempt to force Tara to enroll their...

    Did anyone notice that all of the winners were introduced at the beginning of the show? Queen Latifa walked around the audience, and pointed all the people sitting in the front.

    by Peter Toon November 4, 2006 On November 4, 2006, in the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., the new Lady Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, publicly took up her new vocation. Her sermon followed in the Service that which for her was necessary and highly significant, while for others it was puzzling. She had everyone in the Cathedral involved in "The Baptismal Covenant" from the 1979 prayer book, not only in terms of making the commitments of it, but also being sprinkled with baptismal water by a team of bishops and deacons as a external sign of...

    Daily Mail ^ | October 3, 2006
    Church of England leaders warned yesterday that calling God 'He' encourages men to beat their wives. They told churchgoers they must think twice before they refer to God as 'He' or 'Lord' because of the dangers that it will lead to domestic abuse. See also... Church leader accuses BBC of bias against Catholic church In new guidelines for bishops and priests on such abuse, they blamed "uncritical use of masculine imagery" for encouraging men to behave violently towards women. They also warned that clergy must reconsider the language they use in sermons and check the hymns they sing to remove...

    Sheik: 'Only dialogue we want is when all religions agree to convert to Islam' Posted: 1:00 a.m. Eastern By © 2006 Pope Benedict XVI JERUSALEM – Pope Benedict XVI's meeting this week with a delegation of Muslim leaders and his calls for interfaith dialogue following earlier remarks about Islam are really "Crusader conspiracies" to subjugate the Islamic faith and force "Christian-Zionist" worldviews upon Muslims, a prominent Gaza Strip preacher told WorldNetDaily in an interview. Sheik Abu Saqer, leader of Gaza's Jihadia Salafiya Islamic outreach movement, which seeks to make secular Muslims more religious, called the pope a "puppet" for...

    General atheism vs. theism You may be a fundy atheist if.... 213. You find you have a grudging respect for fundy theists for 'sticking to their guns' even while complaining they don't think for themselves. 214. 'Thinking for yourself' means adopting an atheist viewpoint. 215. When you say "I don't know" you are being brave and honest. When a theist says "I don't know" they are being dishonest and are trying to dodge the question. 217. You leave 'freethought' tracts lying around, like the littering missionaries. 216. When your thoughts on any complex matter are sensible and clear, and a...

    Bible criticism You may be a fundy atheist if.... 174. You become upset when a Christian says that not everything in the Bible should be taken literally. 175. You dislike how liberal theists try to interpret the Bible for themselves, while you create your own interpretations of the Bible for yourself: (a) Exodus 34 contains a new set of 10 Commandments; (b) Jesus asked His disciples to slay all His enemies. 176. You have actually calculated, for purposes of "argument by outrage," an estimate of the number of people drowned in The Flood. 177. You can quote from the bible...
