"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also." . . . Jesus of Nazareth (7–2 BC to 30–33 AD) - John 15: 18-20 . . .
“. . . members of Congress bought and sold votes by adding goodies (in the form of local expenditures of money borrowed by the federal government) . . . “ It’s good that someone keeps reminding us, Judge, but this is hardly news – and it’s certainly not a partisan matter . . . “ as they can get away with it.” Anyway, thanks for calling it to our arrention.

Governing vs. Giving

Welfare is not charity, it’s redistribution - which involves forceful taking. Some call that “theft.” And it’s amazing how few Christians understand the difference between private charity and government welfare.

Should Profiling Be Banned?

Isn't democracy a profiling process? The electorate judges and selects it's representatives based solely on Party affiliation - not on experience, aptitude, philosophy or voting record. How is that different from profiling on race, nationality, gender or sexual proclivity?
Relative to “torture,” why limit the discussion to drone strikes – why not bombing and artillery?

No surprise here. I’ve come to expect no less from the Republican establishment.
Stated in the positive, the slug line would read: “Let’s put Churches the Charitable-minded Back in the Charity Business.”
What would a family or a business do if it couldn’t live within it’s means? Why should government be any different. Dr. Paul makes enemies because he tells us what we don’t want to hear – not because he's wrong.

The CIA and Its Torturers

Why would the CIA - an information gathering agency - use interrogation methods that don’t work, particularly when their jobs, lives and national security are on the line? Makes no sense – even for the government.

Never confuse religion with Christianity. Christianity is the fruit of the spirit – religion usually boils down to hypocrisy.
