The Radical Nature of Love

We need more preaching of The Gospel of Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament that turns our focus outward and away from ourselves and toward our Creator. And we need to be able to discern the difference between The Gospel and all the various manmade gospels that poison, detract, deceive, mislead, and turns us inward on ourselves. I pray for the Pope to know the difference and to resist Satan's great and constant temptation to sell our sacred inheritance from God for the things of this world.
11 years ago 3 mass murderers were interrogated vigorously using techniques that the Justice Department deemed legal. The Bush administration apprised Congress repeatedly and the Democrats said nothing. The information obtained from the interrogations contributed to the capture of Bin Laden. And now the Democrats along with a few Republican useful idiots want to cry foul? What a bunch of worthless, spineless, self-serving, self-righteous demagogues.
It is an amazing story and I can't recommend the book enough. Initially it is a story of superhuman tenacity and endurance. Zamparini's daughter is correct that few could survive what her father survived. It is well after Zamperini's release from the Japanese prison camp that the story of hope and grace appears. That part of the story is truly supernatural because the star is God. It will be interesting to see how Director Jolie tells this chapter of the story.
Gruber has proven that those voting for Democrats are stupid.

Inept like a fox.
Repeal Obamacare in the Senate using the same rules Harry Reid put in place to pass it.
The original Senate rules should not be reinstated until all of the laws that were passed using Harry Reid's rules are rescinded.
The nonpartisan NAACP would issue a fatwa on Tim Scott and Mia Love for apostasy if they could.

Excellent column. Thank you Rebecca and Kristin. Unfortunately for mankind, ever since Adam & Eve denied their(our) birthright our default setting is 'prone to wander, prone to leave the God we love.' And as long as we're residing East of Eden we'll never get it right because we love ourselves far more than we love our Creator. Fortunately our salvation does not rest in our own hands! While we await the return of our Redeemer we are tremendously blessed to live in this free nation, humanly flawed and temporal as it is. So, let all who know from whom their salvation comes take joy in God's gracious invitation to participate in His redeeming work, reflecting Him as best we can in our daily vocations in this worldly Kingdom, to His glory alone, while we await Christ's return and the coming of God's Kingdom.
mj, that is generally just not true. Only in criminal and civil fraud cases does the burden of proof fall on the IRS. In all other cases the the burden is on the taxpayer. So the IRS can claim you have more income than reported with absolutely no proof whatsoever. When the IRS becomes activist and partisan it becomes an extremely dangerous institution capable of silencing free speech.
