    Running Away From My Church Blog ^ | 2/17/2018 | Robert Messner
    The reactions from Left and Right are all too predictable in the wake of the Parkland shootings. My social media feeds are overflowing with self serving proclamations, dubious statistics, hateful name calling, and all around foolishness. As usual, both sides are screaming at each other and no one is really listening. I get the Left’s position on gun control. If we want to prevent these national tragedies, we should make it as difficult as possible for people to get their hands on assault rifles. Even if these guns can be obtained via illegal channels, why make it easy for a...
  • Texas Congressman Runs What Former Aides Call a Hostile Workplace

    WASHINGTON — When Lauren Greene, a former communications director for Representative Blake Farenthold, sued him claiming sexual harassment, among her complaints was that he “disclosed that a female lobbyist had propositioned him for ‘a threesome.’” Mr. Farenthold, in legal documents, said that Ms. Greene had it wrong. The woman wasn’t a lobbyist, he said. As allegations of sexual misconduct rock Capitol Hill — three lawmakers announced their resignations last week alone — Mr. Farenthold, Republican of Texas, stands out as the survivor. He was sued over accusations of sexual harassment three years ago, paid out an $84,000 settlement, financed by...

    The allocation of culpability for the violence that resulted in the tragic death of Heather Heyer at a protest/counter-protest rally in Charlottesville, VA by the media last week really should not have come as a surprise. In the case of Republicans, the news-cycle will consisted of the following phases: If the violence is perpetrated by a hate group(s) whose members are racists, anti-Semites, and white supremacists, first, implicitly tie the Republican Party and its leaders (or if it is President Trump, explicitly) to the offending hate group; secondly, insist he or she publicly renounce the group; third, if the Republican...

    R Kelly has denied canceled upcoming concerts scheduled as part of his After Party tour just weeks after doing the same over allegations of running a sex cult. The 50-year-old singer took to Instagram to share a short video to refute TMZ's Monday report that he had scuttled two shows in Louisiana, one in Dallas and another in Los Angeles. In the short clip he says: 'Yo what's up Mt. Pleasant, Michigan it's your boy Kells and I just want y'all to know that I'm five minutes away from your city, I'm ready to do my thing and I want...

    Let's face it, and let's say what needs to be said, President Trump has rhetorically crossed the Rubicon. His jabbering has jumped the shark. His public pronouncements have passed the point of no return. We are now beyond debating whether this president's policies have merit or whether he intends to "make America great again." Having said that, his health-care and tax-reform proposals, such as they are, have not been sufficiently vetted, nor scored, and may well hurt the people he promised to help and would likely do more harm to the economy than good. The courts have blocked his immigration...
  • Obama Withholds Clemency from Pot 'Lifers,' Devastating Families

    High-profile inmates serving life sentence for marijuana crimes were not given clemency by President Barack Obama on Thursday, leaving their families devastated after long public campaigns urging their freedom. John Knock, whose sister Beth Curtis has lobbied for the release of nonviolent marijuana convicts, learned Wednesday that his application had been denied. Knock was arrested in 1996 and convicted in 2000 of participating in an international pot-smuggling operation. “It’s an incredibly painful disappointment that my brother – a wonderful person who is totally nonviolent – is going to die in prison,” Curtis says, holding back tears.

    The First Family have traded their sundresses and shorts for winter coats once more as they returned home after two weeks of vacation in Hawaii. A downbeat-looking Sasha and Malia departed Air Force One for what is likely the last time when they touched down at the Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Monday. Malia was wrapped up in a red coat and lace-up ankle boots, while Sasha kept warm in a fleece-lined denim jacket and knee-high boots. Following close behind them were Obama and Michelle, both of whom coordinated in black and gray ensembles that matched the East...

  • Trump says his supporters were 'violent'

    Orlando, Florida (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump said Friday his supporters were "violent" during the 2016 campaign. Trump made the admission Friday night during a rally here on the Florida leg of his "Thank You" tour. During the campaign, he repeatedly downplayed violent outbursts his supporters displayed at times toward protesters and insisted that paid activists were instead responsible for inciting violence at his rallies. "You people were vicious, violent, screaming, 'Where's the wall? We want the wall!' Screaming, 'Prison! Prison! Lock her up!' I mean you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted...

    A nine-year old cheerleader stood alone at a football game as the fathers of her squadmates lifted their daughters onto their shoulders. Addie Rodriguez was alone because her father Abel is undergoing military training in California. “It was truly unfortunate to see your daughter standing out there being the only one without their father, knowing why he’s away. It’s not just an absentee parent. He’s serving our country,” Addie’s mom Alexis Perry-Rodriguez said. Enter San Antonio teenager Matthew Garcia. And what an entrance. Seeing Addie’s situation, Matthew — a senior at Central Catholic High School — vaulted two fences as...

    Good afternoon folks. I am posting this to thank Jim Robinson for such a light and yet very functional and practical site. I am honored to be able and participate. Text Content counts more than visual aesthetics and Bangles and Bling. Very well done considering his geographic location and demographics. I will be jumping in to the comment sections as soon as possible but have to first warn you all of my background and position. I am a Christian Minister who has lost his way and can no longer claim Righteousness. Too much has happened that can be pointed as...

    Is Donald Trump the official candidate of Free Republic? I ask because threads critical of the Donald and or that promote other candidates are periodically disappearing from the sidebar or being deleted altogether. If Trump is the endorsed candidate, that's fine. It's Jim Rob's house and he gets to say what is and is not allowed or what candidates are and are not allowed to be promoted. Just let me know. I am not a Trump supporter and will not vote for him under any reasonably foreseeable circumstances, but I respect the house rules. If Trump is FR's candidate I...

    This is what Donald Trump posted on Twitter today, 8-8-15, at 8:46 a.m. Re Megyn Kelly quote" "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever" (NOSE). Just got on with thought." Red State at approximately 9:30 this morning, disinvited him from the Red State Gathering this weekend. He was supposed to speak today. I supported him since he jumped into the race, but, I think Donald finally went too far. Scary, because now he will probably run as a Third Party.

    How's this for proof hidden in plain sight? We received an email from Islamic scholar IQ al Rassooli containing a sequence of 10 photos which we converted into a video. It is brilliant. You can never "un-see" the two pictures at the end. Muslims have a hand sign that silently communicates the Shadaha, meaning, "The only god is Allah and Mohammed his prophet." The index finger is extended vertically to symbolize "one god." It is chilling watching the photos in this video: You can bet that 100% of the Muslims of the world viewing these photos of Obama know...
