Re: Remember: "Legal Pot Will Prevent Crime and Be Taxed!"

Well, ALL of the states did not legalize it. And thus illegal sales boomed in other areas, not to mention the evasion of the taxes it was supposed to produce. And it's a no-brainer that use has skyrocketed. But yes, you can make murder legal, and suddenly their is no murder as a crime. Geesh. My poi...

Re: Remember: "Legal Pot Will Prevent Crime and Be Taxed!"

It's only logical that by legalizing marijuana, that would reduce crime. You clearly didn't read the article! It just spreads the crime out - particularly with the cartels (that no longer have to worry about getting their product across the border - so FAR easier), and smuggling to yet-illegal stat...

Billy Graham

Billy Graham's death got me to thinking about his impact. He certainly was human, made mistakes, got involved too close to some politicians. However, I'm curious as to how he was viewed outside of America. And how Catholics view him? My wife's family is Catholic - they never discuss Jesus, the Bible...

Re: Do Reformed Christians Need to Embrace Six-Day Creation?

My understanding of the Reformed Mantra goes something like... "By Grace Alone Through Faith Alone In Christ Alone" The Reformed mantra goes FAR beyond that - offering God's grace only to a select number who cannot resist or choose it - in which salvation is a done deal made by God long b...

Re: John H. Walton said what about concordism?

However, as you note, the human writers were not the only agents involved in the creation of the OT Scriptures. The Holy Spirit was also involved, and the Holy Spirit is not limited in scope to original audience or the original context. Which is why Scripture is able to speak to all people of all t...

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

What the neocons seem to believe is that the supposed rewards and freedoms of Democracy are so compelling that, given the chances and leaders, societies under monarchies or dictatorships will excitedly embrace it. Most of them seem to be very secular in their thinking, and don't understand that such...

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

Any student of history knows my last comments about Jews are true. But that doesn't mean they or Israel haven't caused problems. And for the record, I despise the shenanigan's and beliefs of the neocons - they've conned themselves!

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

It's an exceptionally complex situation. Bad guys on every corner. Which is why the West gets caught up in trying to pick an entity to help, often ending up with bad results. But it's always the usual suspects that stir this stuff up. The Persians, various Islamists, the Russians. It's difficult to ...

K: My father-in-law escaped from Poland via Russia as a boy.


Ah, so you wake up with a lass of Polish descent, as well? My bride is 100% pure Polish - which translates to 100% stubbornness, LOL.
