The Lawyer on Trial for Christ

Riddle me this, who is the fool? The one who has faith (the quiet assurance) that this glorious world and universe around us was brought into exisitance by design and therefore had a Designer or one who believes a "giant spaghetti monster" brought all this about? Paraphrasing from the book of Romans, for the things of the invisible God are clearly seen by the things that are made so they are with our excuse. That is His statement, prove Him wrong.
You might want to spend some more time in the Bible, Jesus had no problem condemning the Pharisees for their actions or the Apostle Paul condemning the man in the Corinthian Church for his sexual immorality. We judge actions through the filter of the Bible not of our own opinions. Mr. Barber might say what Jesus said, "go and sin no more". Yes, action is required to demonstrate the Christian life but that should not stop us from "speaking the Truth in love" where appropriate.

That is quite a statement, you may find out about the mechanics but how can an 8 year old understand the emotional depth of the act without the guidance of someone who has been "around the block"?

Maybe you should check out the story of the white teen (unarmed) shot and killed by a, as reported, black police officer out in Utah. The result? Instead of the mindless acts occurring in Ferguson the people, although upset, are allowing the process of investigation take place. Why not take a breath and actually look up the numbers from the Justice Dept. Listening to multiple sources quoting them, there is a 60x higher chance of a black male being shot by a black than being shot by a white. Fifty on percent of the murders in this country are committed by 13% of the population. If those sources are wrong I would be happy to be corrected. Would you have the police simply remove themselves from the areas in question and let the local population sort it out?
Since he was not convicted of anything he was considered a POW and therefore his was promoted simply based on his time in the Army.
You assume that there will always be rational thought behind the actions of ISIS. They may attack out of no other reason than terror and hate. Based on what occurred after 9/11, I do not believe Osama foresaw the USA's military actions in Afghanistan or Iraq but performed the attacks based on sheer hatred for the United States and the Western system. It is very difficult fighting an enemy that glorifies death and does not embrace life, the price for victory over such an enemy maybe too high for us to imagine. The last time we faced an enemy so willing to die in such a manner we had to drop nukes on them, twice before they got the idea of surrender.

The intelligent thing to do would be to stay away from trying to solve their problems with a different culture, do not fund their country with any thing from us, when we do nothing they will do something to change it. ________________________________________________________________________ Sadly that was not so in Afghanistan, they were going to be a base for terrorism since the Taliban were in control. Sticking your head in the sand and "hoping" something will change before more tragedy occurs is not a course of action. I agree that trying to change a tribal culture with some kind of democratic system was a dream, therefore the logical course of action would seem to be to install another type of system that can govern after we wipe out our enemies there.
I learned from the Clinton impeachment process that this is not a judicial process but a political one. It is a fools errands to pursue impeachment despite the evidence presented by the judge. I agree the POTUS has not faithfully executed his oath to the Constitution however the appetite for impeaching a president is simply not there, if Clinton could not be removed from office when he was caught "dead to rights" perjuring himself then the bar for removal has been set at an extremely high level.

LEGAL does not make something MORAL. Remember something called SLAVERY was once legal?
