Re: “GET HELP for Anything

Thank you for writing about this. I've lived in Tucson for 5 years but I've never heard of the 211 service.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: What's Your Crazy?

I don't believe that President Obama was born in Kenya oh, but I do now believe that he was ineligible to be President for another reason. The Constitution says that the only people eligible for the presidency are those who are natural born citizens of the United States. It is clear what Benjamin Franklin meant by natural born citizen: The Source he quoted Define the natural born citizen as one who is born to, not just one citizen, but two citizen parents who were both born in the country. All other governmental offices do not have that requirement. According to my understanding, Mr Obama had one parent who was born in Kenya, so he, in fact, was not legally eligible to be President. He was never disqualified because most people , even politicians and election officials did not and do not know what is meant by "natural born citizen." Also, during the campaign for Mr Obama's second term there were one or two candidates on the Republican side who were not eligible for similar reasons, but Democrats didn't wish to bring that up because if they did, President Obama's eligibility would then have been questioned. I don't have access to the link at the moment but I think if you search "Alan Korwin" and "natural born citizen" or "presidential eligibility," you will find his very clear essay on the topic. Ah, I quickly searched and found the Korwin white paper here:

Re: “Crowning Around

I became a fan of Downton Abbey TV series when I came across an episode, but mistakenly thought it was a movie. By the time I came to the end of that particular episode, which I believe was from the first season showing a garden party at Downton Abbey, and possibly a season-ending episode, I was annoyed because I would have to wait to see another episode and find out what happened next. But I was definitely hooked. I enjoyed the time that the story is set in, especially the lovely ladies , the clothes the stories of their loves and lives. Did I like everything that happened in this TV series ? No. But I certainly wanted to go on and see the film. I knew it was going to be tough for them to do justice to all the characters in a 2 hour movie, but I enjoyed the movie enough to see it twice, and liked it better the second time. I'm disappointed in Bob Grimm's review of the movie. It stands to reason you wouldn't understand what's going on in the film if you hadn't seen the six seasons of the television series, but it just seems petty to say that you'll never watch it, and then you tell a reader not to bother watching the film without knowing if they had seen the television series.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Ruffin' Fur Rudy

More importantly, the MSM and the Democrats continue to shamefully ignore the illegalities and untruthfulness of their own actions since Mr Trump was still a candidate. In America, people are innocent until PROVEN guilty, despite the fact that unhappy losers in the Democratic caucus and the media wish it were otherwise. Vengeance is Mine, declares the Lord. God will judge all men and women with truth, justice, and mercy.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Condemning Racism

the idea of race and racism in America and in the world today is nothing less than a deception and a liar. From hell. God made all men and women from one original couple, Adam and Eve. Until we admit and accept that as truth and humble ourselves before the Creator, we will never solve this sin of racism. There is good news, hoever

What does the Bible say about racism?
What does the Bible say about racism?
By Jim Denison, Christian Post Columnist | Wednesday, May 22, 2019

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love.

As a result, no New Testament writer attempted to end slavery itself, as this was not possible in their time. But several other facts should be noted as well.

One: Paul abolished all racial and social discrimination for Christians:
In Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:2628).

Every believer is our sister or brother. None in the Christian family are to be viewed as slaves.

Two: Free Christians viewed slaves as their equal.
Paul appealed to Philemon to see his slave, Onesimus, no longer as a bondservant but more than a bondservant, as a beloved brother (Philemon 16).


Racism and the Bible

The Bible clearly condemns all forms of racism and views every person as equally valuable. Lets look at what Gods word says about our subject, then well consider some common questions people ask about the Scriptures and racism.

Six theological facts
One: We are all created by God.
The human story begins in Genesis 1, where God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them (v. 27). Every person is created intentionally by God in his own divine image. Thus, every person is sacred and equally valuable. Every form of racism, by definition, is to be rejected.

Two: We are all descended from the same parents.
Every human being is descended from Adam and Eve (Genesis 1:28). As a result, The man called his wifes name Eve, because she was the mother of all living (Genesis 3:20).

As Scripture notes, the Lord made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth (Acts 17:26). Because of the Flood, all of humanity can trace our ancestry to Noah as well (Genesis 9:1).

Three: Every person is equally valuable to God.
As noted earlier, Paul stated boldly: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28). This at a time when many Jews considered Greeks to be unclean and inferior. Some claimed that God made Gentiles so there would be firewood in hell. Many refused even to look upon a Gentile in public.

For their part, Gentiles persecuted the Jewish people across nearly their entire history. The Jews were enslaved by Egypt, attacked by Canaanites and other surrounding tribes, destroyed by Assyria, enslaved by Babylon, and ruled by Persia, Greece, and Rome. The Roman Empire destroyed their temple in AD 70 and disbanded their nation after the Bar Kochba revolt in AD 132135. Nonetheless, Scripture teaches that there is neither Jew nor Greek in the eyes of God.

There is neither slave nor free was also a revolutionary claim. As we have seen, slavery was endemic in the first-century world. Many viewed slaves, especially those who came from foreign lands, as inferior to Romans.

There is no male and female was a radical statement as well. Romans considered women to be the possession of men. A female belonged to her father until she belonged to her husband. Women were either wives or concubines, with few rights of their own.

Galatians 3:28 sounds the clarion call that every form of racism known to Pauls day was invalid and sinful. The God who made us all loves us all.

Re: “Over the Moon

It's worth seeing. I thought the stoicism of Armstrong was too overdone in many scenes, and not believable, however. The flight and spaceflight scenes are effective, though some of the scenes of launch ad orbital activity oddly leave out air-to-ground communications that are available and make little sense to leave out.

Re: “Maroon 5 to Perform at the 2019 Super Bowl

I have no desire to watch pop and rock performers during Super Bowl half times. If I have the opportunity to turn off the broadcast during that time, I will do so. I have usually watched at home alone, or with a small group of people.

I know it will never happen, but I wish they would bring back marching bands.

Re: “McSally Silent on Roy Moore Accusations

Typical over-reaction by pro-abortion responders. Why don't you care more for your fellow women, why do you keep resisting any attempt to make it rare?

I am not against birth control, except when you want to use abortion, or the morning after pill, which in the case of abortion actually kills a human being oh, the majority of which are women, and then the case of the morning after pill which doesn't always prevent pregnancy but May kill an implanted unique human being in its mother's uterus.

I am not trying to control women. I'm trying to get them to reconsider their point of view on abortion and to control themselves. you claim to want abortion to be safe and rare? what are you actually doing to make that happen? most abortions are not necessary. They are convenience or imposed by force by parents or peer pressure. why won't you acknowledge that if you care about women? why won't you actively work to cut back on the number of abortions? if you have a right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, why don't the children you conceive have the same rights?

the founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist according to her own words. She believed that white races were Superior to others. the number one killer of black people is abortion. how many people have been killed in the womb who might have lived 2 come up with answers to our real problems? how many aborted children would have had a life such as the one you are currently enjoying?
