  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Address to Joint Meeting of Congress [Live Thread]

    Air Commando vs the ward politician

    “After graduating from high school in 1967, Netanyahu returned to Israel to enlist in the IDF. He trained as a combat soldier and became a team leader in an elite special forces unit of the IDF, Sayeret Matkal. He took part in numerous cross-border assault raids during the 1969–70 War of Attrition. He was wounded in combat on multiple occasions.[4] He was involved in many other missions, including Operation Inferno (1968), and the rescue of the hijacked Sabena Flight 571 in May 1972 in which he was shot in the shoulder.[19]

    After his army service, Netanyahu returned to the United States in late 1972 to study architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He returned to Israel in October 1973 to serve in the Yom Kippur War for a 40-day period.[20] While there, he fought in special forces raids along the Suez Canal, as well as leading a commando team deep into Syrian territory.

    And Obama’s military service is? Absolutely nothing. But for some strange reason he knows more about defending Israel that’s thisformer Israeli commando, who actually fought for his country and almost died for his country.

    It’s tough being a Catholic priest. Obviously he was not called to be a priest. It just took him a while to figure that out. The other part about “being saved” is nonsense. When I read that I knew then he never believed to start with.
    Devout Catholics do not abandon Christ in the Eucharist. He was never devout. End of story.

    Show me one. In the years that I have been posting I cant ever recall a thread about a Catholic converting to protestantism or evangelicalism. Please surprise me. Show me one and if it does exist show me where I ranted and raved and called the guy a lunatic? The vast majority of the Religious forum are threads started by Catholics. I guess that’s because protestants are not proud of their faith. Now get busy and show me threads about Catholics that jumped to the protestant faith. Happy hunting.

    I could really care less if you don’t believe someone is a priest. Try paying attention to what he says about the Catholic Church and anyone that knows anything about Catholicism, which the average protestant does not, will quickly come to the conclusion that this particular poster is either a Catholic priest or a PHD in Theology. And I don’t have to guess and you don’t have to guess the education level of Fulton Sheen, John Henry Newman or Benedict 16th. There is absolutely no one on the FR boards that has that type of background in religion. And guess what, of the last three that I mentioned one was a convert from protestantism and all three will one day be canonized saints. If either Sheen or Benedict 16th in all their years of study had thought that Catholicism was wrong they would have left the faith and become a protestant. The exact same reason that Cardinal Newman left protestantism. They would have done so because they were also men of integrity that could not live a lie. Lastly name me one world renowned Catholic theologian who has all the sudden said Catholicism was wrong and left the faith for a protestant denomination. You can’t. They don’t exist. Now what me to name all the brilliant protestant theologians that became Catholic? I am a Catholic for one reason and one reason only. It’s the truth, whether you or anyone else agrees with that or not. There are now over 400 replies to this simple thread about someone that converted to Catholicism. Why so many replies? Why can’t people of all faiths be happy for him instead of immediately saying he didn’t know what he was doing and in the process start badmouthing Catholicism. I think we both know the answer.

    Then what comes after 3:3?

    3:5 “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

    I know of no Catholic that was not baptised by water AND THE SPIRIT!

    They are “born again”, as evangelicals like to call it.


    1215 This sacrament is also called “the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit,” for it signifies and actually brings about the birth of water and the Spirit without which no one “can enter the kingdom of God.”7

    The Jews didn’t put the Bible that YOU READ together. The Catholic Church determined what BOOKS YOU READ in the Holy Bible and canonized those books. Not the Jews. Without the Catholic Church the Bible would not exist. It is a CATHOLIC DOCUMENT.Now you can argue till the cows come home but it’s historical fact. Go to any public library, look up the history of the Bible and see what it says about the Catholic Church. You can not not be that naive.

    I just watched the lying SOB fatter version of GW Bush being questioned by Hannity. He told two lies that no one should forget. First he said he was “pro-life”. No he’s not. He believes in murdering the baby if he doesn’t like who the father is, as in rape and incest. He claims he’s a Catholic but goes directly against the doctrine of the Catholic Church with his selective abortion views. He also said he is for “traditional marriage”. Another lie. If this democrat wannabe manages to buy the GOP nomination he will immediately say he has “evolved” on the issue, once again going against the Catholic Church.

    The fatter Bush is a disaster as a republican and if the GOP wants to see another RINO lose to a democrat, then nominate the bloated looking, grinning closeted-democrat. He also allowed the state of Florida to murder Teri Schievo. He could have stepped in and stopped the murder, but he did nothing. And as far as the border go, like his brother, he would love to see them torn down and the USA and Mexico become one big country.

    There were no protestants around for the fist 1,500 years after Jesus died on the cross. The Bible had been around for a thousand years or more. The Holy Spirit used the CATHOLIC CHURCH to give the world the Bible. Without that happening no protestant would have ever heard of Jesus Christ and his teachings. Don’t the haters on here think it’s about time that credit it given where credit is due? You can’t change history anymore than I can. It is absolutely ridiculous and childish the way some on here rant and rave the minute they hear the word Catholic.

    Where We Got the Bible: Our Debt to the Catholic Church

    This little book about the Bible grew out of lectures which the writer delivered on the subject to mixed audiences. The lectures were afterwards expanded, and appeared in a series of articles in the Catholic press 1908-9, and are now with slight alterations reprinted. Their origin will sufficiently account for the colloquial style employed throughout.

    There is, therefore, no pretence either of profound scholarship or of eloquent language; all that is attempted is a popular and, as far as possible, accurate exposition along familiar lines of the Catholic claim historically in regard to the Bible. It is candidly controversial without, however, let us hope, being uncharitable or unfair.

    Friends had more than once suggested the reissue of the articles; and it appeared to the writer that at last the proper moment for it had come when the Protestant world is jubilating over the Tercentenary of the Authorised Version. Amidst the flood of literature on the subject of the Bible, it seemed but right that some statement, however plain and simple, should be set forth from the Catholic side, with the object of bringing home to the average mind the debt that Britain, in common with the rest of Christendom, owes to the Catholic Church in this connection. Probably the motive of the present publication will be best understood by a perusal of the following letter from the writer which appeared in the Glasgow Herald, 18th March, 1911:—


    AMID the general jubilation over the three hundredth anniversary of the appearance of King James’s version of the Bible, I think it would be a pity if we did not make mention of that great Church to which, under God, we owe our possession of the sacred Scriptures—I mean of course, the Roman Catholic Church. Without striking one single jarring note, I hope, in the universal chorus, yet I feel it would be rather ungenerous, and indeed historically unjust, did we not turn our eyes at least in passing to that venerable figure standing in the background surveying our celebrations, and, as it were, saying, ‘Rejoice over it, but remember it was from me you got it’. As a Scotsman, who cannot forget that it is the Bible that has made Scotland largely what she is today, I yield to no one in veneration of the inspired Scriptures and in admiration of the incomparably beautiful Authorised Version. Still, honour to whom honour. We shall only be awarding a just meed of praise and gratitude if we frankly and thankfully recognise that it is to a council (or councils) of the R.C. Church that we owe the collection of the separate books into our present Canon of the New Testament, and that to the loving care and devoted labour of the monks and scholars of that Church all through the ages we are indebted, not only for the multiplication and distribution of the sacred volume among the faithful when as yet no printing press existed, but even for the preservation of the Book from corruption and destruction. It is, then, undoubtedly true to say that, in the present order of Providence, it is owing to the Roman Catholic Church that we have a Bible at all. And no one will be a bit the worse Christian and Bible­lover if he remembers this notable year that it is to the Mother Church of Christendom he must look if he would behold the real preserver, defender, and transmitter of the ‘Word that endureth for ever.’—

    What John MacArthur or any other protestant fails to understand is they have accepted the authority of the Catholic Church every time they pick up a Bible. The Bible didn’t just drop out of the sky, spiral bound, with an NKJV sticker on it. The Catholic Church chose which books to include in the Bible in the Synod of Hippo (393 AD) and confirmed it at Carthage (397 AD). Without the Catholic Church there would be no Bible.

    Let's not forget that when the lying weasel was running for president he said his "Bible" taught him that marriage was the union of one man and one woman. Then apparently he had the only Bible in the world that changes because he came out and said he had "evolved" and that he now believed that homosexuals had the right to get "married". I have never for one minute thought this character was christian. I think he's a Muslim and that is the precise reason he will not take the fight to those murdering bastards. It's just too bad that none of the geniuses on TV will admit the obvious. The murdering of babies, cracking down on Christians because of their beliefs and demolition of marriage are just more proof that he's no Christian and also the biggest liar this side of the moon.

You can understand the liberal Obama worshippers like CNN and MSNBC taking up for the lying POS, but now we have Fox News taking up for the Muslin-in-Chief. O’Reilly calls anyone that says Obama is a Muslim a “far-out right-wing extremist”. He says they don’t know what they are taking about. Someone should ask loudmouth O’Reilly has he ever read or heard Obama say if he was baptised. The answer is absolutely not. He was never baptised. But loudmouth belittles those that call him a Muslim or dares to call into question his birth certificate or college transcripts.
