\\Monk Brendan with all respect to you but I know for a fact that schools in this State practice Zero Tolerance.\\

If you had read what Monk Brendan said, you would have seen that he, too, said he would have been punished in the 50's if he had defended himself.

I recall the ones who bullied me the most at school would stand up during our youth groups and talk about how much Jesus meant to them.

BTW, in what state do you live, Darlene? I'm in ARizona.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/14/16


Darlene 1 said, "Monk Brendan with all respect to you but I know for a fact that schools in this State practice Zero Tolerance. That means the victim is just as guilty as the one who is mistreating the victim."

It isn't like that all over the country.

When I was going to school in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, I often was the butt of pranks, pratfalls, and "mishaps." By the time I could get anyone to pay attention to me, I was being dragged up to the principle's office, and I was getting punished. The true offender was not even spoken to.
---Monk_Brendan on 3/14/16


Monk Brendan with all respect to you but I know for a fact that schools in this State practice Zero Tolerance. That means the victim is just as guilty as the one who is mistreating the victim. With that rule I know that the victim receives punishment just like the one persecuting the victim. There are no rules in place to punish or stop the person who bullies someone else. Thats why so many kids who are bullied lose hope and give up trying to get the school to stop them,to the extent some commit suicide.

\\Look what God did to Sodom & Gomorrah. Are today's perverts somehow better than they?

It could be.

Jesus told the people of Israel it would be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgement than for them.

When did you choose to be heterosexual, jerry?

BTW, if you want to know the sin of Sodom that led to its destruction, read Ezekiel 16:49.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Monk_B. Either you're not comprehending my posts OR ELSE you're a Leftist deceitfully resorting to diversions about bullying that was not an issue for the LGBT's misleadingly named Safe Schools program.

KATHR. Trump is NOT PRO CHOICE. That changed after seeing the experience of a friend who failed to go through with abortion.
BUT BO and HILLARY ARE PRO CHOICE and typical of the heartless Left.
Yes, Trump may be a nominal Christian, but that's still better than BO and Hillary.

Trump says good stuff. Whether he can save the U.S or not remains to be seen. But it's clear to see throughout the West that the modern day Nazi's are the Left who always resort to the same violence, abuse, deceit as Hitler's Nazi Brown Shirts did.
---Haz27 on 3/14/16


Haz 27 said, "I don't know what you've been drinking to think that. You're sounding just like a Leftist LGBT activist.

Again I'll say there are already strategies in place to deal with bullying."


There weren't in the 50's and 60's, when I was going to school. If I was beat up, it was automatically my fault. If I defended myself, I got in trouble. I was held up to ridicule by students, teachers, principles alike.

If making a "Safe School" law will help the kids that are different--fat, or a minority race, or speaks with a funny accent, for instance, then I am all for it

Monk Brendan

Haz: Great stuff!

Haz27. Haz, maybe you aren't listening, but the Donals is PRO CHOICE. Doesn't know the difference between a communion plate and an offering plate. HAZ, it has come out Falwell JR has regretted backing him. So now you want to call me a lefty because I don't like the Donald and believe he is a wolf in sheets clothing? An Authoritarian feeding off the fears and prejudices of people here? Much like HOW Hitler became so popular.

Hitler was a NATIONAL SOCIALIST who believed blond haired blue eye Arians were SUPERIOR to "all others ". Don't forget that part.

Communication style of Authoritarian Leadership:

Downward, one-way communication (i.e. leaders to followers, or supervisors to subordinates)

Controls discussion with followers

Dominates interaction

Independently/unilaterally sets policy and procedures

Individually directs the completion of tasks
Does not offer constant feedback

Rewards acquiescent obedient behavior and punishes erroneous actions

Poor listener

Uses conflict for individual gain
---kathr453 on 3/14/16


Spoken like a true Leftist LGBT activist, Cluny.

Christians, however, look to our God for the truth.
God made them male and female Gen 1:27
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination Lev 20:13

Christians, and many non-Christians see only 2 genders, just as God said and nature confirms.

But the Leftist LGBT activists claim there's multiple genders, and of course, in the Leftists trademark bullying way, anyone who disagrees is vilified as a "Heterosexist".

Fact is the CIA already exposed the Communist goal of gender degeneracy as one of their efforts in bringing down the West. You're proof of the Communists success.

---Haz27 on 3/13/16


Kathr. Hitler was a Socialist as he himself said. Socialism is of the Left, as much as Leftists today try to deceitfully hide this fact.

And throughout the West we see it's always deceitful Leftist activist thugs who are violently attacking and abusing any with opposing views (such as Trump), the same as Hitler's Brown Shirts did to opponents in the1930's. And considering the Left's disdain for Israel, we see today's Left has much in common with Hitler.

Russian KGB Communist defector Yuri Bezmanov warned that the West was stuck with those brainwashed by the Communist Left. He said that the KGB were amazed at how successful their brainwashing through political correctness had been. Today's Left is proof of this.
---Haz27 on 3/13/16


\\What concerns me is that you seem to support the deceitful LGBT guise on bullying when in fact it's really about indoctrinating children with the twisted LGBT view.\\

How do you know that YOUR view is not the twisted on, Haz27.

Sexual orientation is NOT something that is chosen.

Or did you think that people deliberately choose theirs?

Why, if so?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/13/16


Based on your assumptions, it was okay for the kids to bully me?---Monk_Brendan

I don't know what you've been drinking to think that. You're sounding just like a Leftist LGBT activist.

Again I'll say there are already strategies in place to deal with bullying.
What concerns me is that you seem to support the deceitful LGBT guise on bullying when in fact it's really about indoctrinating children with the twisted LGBT view.

BTW, Hitler despised Jews because he associated them with capitalism. He said:
.If we are socialists, then we must definitely be anti-semites and the opposite, in that case, is Materialism and Mammonism, which we seek to oppose. How, as a socialist, can you not be an anti-semite?
---Haz27 on 3/13/16


Hitler was a National Socialist. Not the same as a socialist, however both have socialistic idiology. The Baath Party in Syria and Iraq under Suddam H are the closest today of resembling Nazi National Socialism.

I do find it interesting the Neo Nazi's here and white supremest groups support The Donald. Let's remember OUR COUNTRY, and the quote on the Statue of Liberty would never have been seen in Socialist National Nazi Germany.

Haz 27 said, "Monk Brendon. (the name is spelled Brendan, which you should have noticed by looking at the bottom of my post) "Hitler was a Socialist, hence his hatred of Jews who he saw as greedy capitalists. Socialism is clearly of the Left, in spite of the misleading claims from Leftists to the contrary."

Hitler was using anti-Semitism as a tool to whip the people to a frenzy. Anti-Semitism at the time was a racial bigotry, and not a political buzzword.

BTW, I was a good Catholic boy when I was growing up. I didn't know straight from gay. But I was fat. I was bullied all through school because of my weight. Based on your assumptions, it was okay for the kids to bully me?

Monk Brendan
---Monk_Brendan on 3/12/16


\\But I strongly suspect your line of questioning is aimed at a similar attempt to mislead as the LGBT activists who developed that school program to manipulate children.\\

Wrong.

\\Monk Brendon. Hitler was a Socialist, hence his hatred of Jews who he saw as greedy capitalists. \\

Wrong again.

The first thing the Bolsheviks did when the achieved power was to declare anti-semitism to be counter-revolutionary.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/12/16


Again we see another example of the important issues facing the West.
Trump cancelled his rally in Chicago due to the Left's trademark aggressive opposition to those who oppose their totalitarian agenda.

We see the same in Australia. Any Australian public rally that opposes the totalitarian agenda of the Left are always faced off by Left wing Fascists, racists and bigots violently attacking and abusing anyone they perceive as against their cause.

Whilst Leftist rallies are not interfered with by conservatives, the totalitarian Left will not tolerate any rallies that oppose their agenda.

Leftist activists today are the modern day versions of Hitler's Nazi Brown Shirts in the 1930's.
---Haz27 on 3/12/16


Haz27 Schools no longer look at who is right or who is wrong in incidents at school and that is because many,many schools have in effect Zero Tolerance. That means even if a child is being picked on by another,if they become trouble to the school,the victim is seen just as guilty as the child who started it and is in the wrong even if they were only trying to protect themselves. It is an easier policy for the school but very unfair to the victim.

Cluny. Of course children should not be bullied for any reason, and our schools here have long had strategies to deal with ANY bullying.
But I strongly suspect your line of questioning is aimed at a similar attempt to mislead as the LGBT activists who developed that school program to manipulate children.

God made them male and female, BUT the Leftist/LGBT Safe Schools Coalition CONDEMNS God's view labeling it as "Heterosexism". Teachers are told it is "heterosexist" to label children as boys or girls.

Monk Brendon. Hitler was a Socialist, hence his hatred of Jews who he saw as greedy capitalists. Socialism is clearly of the Left, in spite of the misleading claims from Leftists to the contrary.
---Haz27 on 3/11/16


Haz27 said, "Nazism is a Collectivist ideology like Communism/Socialism.
BTW, Hitler's party was called the German SOCIALIST Workers party...

In contrast the conservative Right are traditionally the libertarians, wanting less government."


Haz, Please understand that both Hitler and Stalin didn't care a thing about the people. Both were all about personal power.

BTW, the National Socialist party was a right-wing party--a totalitarian dictatorship, whereas Marxist philosophy is about spreading Communism throughout the world. It is the focus of thought and effort. Nazi is right-wing and Communist is left-wing.

Monk Brendan
---Monk_Brendan on 3/11/16


\\Cluny. I'm surprised you should say that. That is a misleading Leftist LGBT propaganda line used to justify the manipulation of children with the LGBT sick agenda.
\\

I notice that you did not actually answer my question, so let me put it another way.

Do you think that children who are different--or merely PERCEIVED as being different--be they LGBT or otherwise--or merely PERCEIVED as such....should these children be bullied, beaten up on, ridiculed, harassed, and otherwise abused by their classmates?

Please answer with a Yes or No.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/11/16


NurseRob. Why do you always side with the politics that opposes God?.

God made them man and woman (Gen 5:2).
If a man lays with a man as he lies with a woman, both have committed an abomination. Lev 20:13

BTW, the LGBT/Leftist agenda is clear to see.

Consider LGBT activist Masha Gessen who stated that she was not interested in lying like many LGBT activists do. She said marriage equality was a lie, and that it was really all about destroying marriage.

The CIA spied on Communist meetings decades ago and one CIA researcher published a book (The Naked Communist) revealing their findings about the Communist's goals, which included presenting degeneracy, promiscuity, LGBT lifestyles, as normal and healthy.

---jerry6593 on 3/11/16


NurseRob. Regarding the Left's disdain for Jews, in Australia the Leftist dominated media, especially the tax payer funded ABC media (the largest media outlets in Australia) is always anti-Israel in reporting, even to the extent of deceitfully portraying Muslim TERRORISTS AS VICTIMS, and Jewish victims of terrorist attacks as somehow deserving perpetrators.

Some Leftist politicians here even have links to HAMAS, in their stand against Israel.

Likewise we see in the U.K, British Labour/Left leader Corbyn is renowned for his links to Muslim terrorist groups.

And former U.K Labour/Left leader Miliband even sought the Muslim vote with his insane election promise to criminalize criticism of Islam.
---Haz27 on 3/11/16

---jerry6593 on 3/7/16

Tell us, jerry... just how is he showing "disdain" for Israel and the Jewish people... Is it because he only gave $25B to Israel since 2010. Or is it because he doesn't like Netanyahu?

Come on, I'm looking forward to your response on this.

and Haz... just what is the "Agenda" of the GLBT?? Is it in writing somewhere.. Perhaps you can give us an unbiased synopsis?
---NurseRobert on 3/10/16


Cluny. I'm surprised you should say that. That is a misleading Leftist LGBT propaganda line used to justify the manipulation of children with the LGBT sick agenda.

Schools here have long had strategies in place against bullying, hence its not an issue like the deceitful LGBT propagandists make out.

Sadly though, there is still a strong culture of bullying in western societies which all comes from the Leftist dominated media, Leftist politicians, and LGBT activists, etc. As we all know anyone who dares not submit to the Left's tyranny of political correctness is vilified or even face litigation where an activist judiciary fine Christians for not baking a cake.

---jerry6593 on 3/10/16


Leon, Yes, GOD is judging the whole World.

But, America will be judged much more severely for she was Blessed and given much more than other nations.

Also, more importantly, the United States has had more "Light" and more Freedom to worship GOD and more freedom to access Bibles, Gospel literature and more opportunities to live out her Faith and be a "salt" and "light" within herself as well as to other nations.

All this via her Churches.

"...For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required..." (from LUKE 12:48).

That principle applies to a nation of people as well as individuals.

America was given much and has squandered it against GOD.
---Gordon on 3/9/16


Further examples of how the Progressive/Left are damaging western societies.

Here in Australia a tax payer funded (Leftist) organisation, misleadingly named the "Safe Schools Coalition", has developed a program to manipulate school children ( in accordance with the LGBT agenda).

This Leftist gender-bending program requires that 11 year old students are to imagine they are 16 years old and dating someone of the SAME GENDER who they're really attracted to.
This Leftist program also offers links to web sites with twisted adult content.

Of course the state of Victoria, which has the most extremist Left government, has immediately adopted this Leftist program for it's state run schools.

Aservant, the Body of Christ, aka the church, is made up of believers from every nation, not just America. It's a spiritual body, not an earthly one. We have NO LAND. Heaven is our home. We are DEAD TO THIS WORLD, and the things of this world. Colossians 3:1-4 make that clear.

What you are saying as so many are misled to believe is THE GOSPEL OF AMERICA, which does not exist.

The promises given to EARTHLY ISRAEL, have not been transferred to Earthly America. Those promises were CONDITIONAL. The promises given to the Body of Christ THROUGH CHRIST, are SPIRITUAL, and His GRACE we REST IN, are not conditional upon a legalistic obedience. I stand firmly in HIS GRACE, through FAITH, no matter what America does or doesn't.

Cluny. The Left of politics is not limited to only Communism. It also includes Fascism/Socialism.
After the economic crash in the 30's the strongest political parties in Germany were the Communist party and Hitler's Socialists.

And as always with the the totalitarian Left, they eliminate opposition. Had the Communists beat Hitler then the Communists would have executed or put into Gulags anyone from Hitler's party. History shows that's the Communist way.

Jerry6593. You're correct. Nazism/Fascism is of the Left, as Hitler's SOCIALIST German Workers Party confirms.

Leftist propaganda sources misrepresent labels (deceitfully claiming Fascism is on the Right) and sadly the unthinking followers on the Left believe whatever their Leftist masters tell them.

When we consider that the Left today share a similar hate towards Jews as their Islamist allies do, then this suggests the Left have more in common with Nazism than just politics.

Consider also the Left's deceitful claim as " compassionate", in spite of their record of mass murder under the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and even today with their approval of the slaughter/abortion of innocent babies.

America is now a modern Sodom and Gomorrah and is a stench in GOD's Nostrils.

The modern Prophets and Watchmen which the LORD has sent over the decades to warn America and her Churches have been mostly ignored and scoffed at by the Church at large.

Leon,

What is the most important issue will vary in peoples minds depending upon their beliefs, and what is their passion...so maybe very subjective.
I believe that all issues can be summed up in love, so love, and the apparent lack of love is most important. Love is the fulfillment of the law, and is also what is most needed for any and all issues that exist because of an absence of love. What that looks like may vary depending upon specifics, but will always be Christ like, and line up with truth

The USA is the land of many of "Abraham's sons." Thus, 2 Chr 7:14 applies.
---aservant on 2/24/16

Aservant, God never made a covenant with any Gentile Nation concerning LAND, nor did He transfer His original covenant given to Israel and the LAND He gave them to another. Yes Abraham's physical and even spiritual sons live through out the whole world. Not just America.

What You are also suggesting this verse is saying, is accusing the BOC of being WICKED, and needing to repent. WRONG WRONG WRONG. That is a curse against Christ Himself and the BOC. Or are you saying Abrahan's physical descendants must repent in order for God td heal America today? The Bible teaches no such thing.

Aservant, what you also lack in understanding is TODAY, God deals with individuals. In the OT, God dealt with the NATION OF ISRAEL as a whole. The blessings and CURSINGS, were to the NATION as a whole, based on a THEOCRACY. America is NOT a Theocracy. It never was. The Nation of Israel never allowed other religions to worship their gods freely. When Solomon allowed such things through his many wives, the Nation, Kingdom was DIVIDED AND SCATTERED as punishment. Please know your history.

And AGAIN, God NEVER made a Covenant with a Gentile Nation.

I believe the most critical issue in America today is the LOSS of the Gospel. And it's because of that we are in a real mess. But the Bible has warned us of this.

If the Jew in Rom 2:28-29 is spiritual Israel, the Jew in Rom 3:10 must also be spiritual, placing an unnatural reading on the passage.
Where is the Jew that is part of an alleged spiritual body of Israel found in Rom 3:10 where all are unrighteous? Everyone is contained in this passage which sets the foundation for the gospel of the grace of God proclaimed in Rom 3:22-26.
Making the church today part of the Jew in Rom 2:28-29 requires ignorance of the context, prophecy concerning Israel, plus a disrespect for the natural reading of the word.
The boC doesn't replace Israel, nor is Israel an allegory for the church. Instead the church, the boC, containing the redeemed today is labeled a new creature (2 Cor 5:17).

From: Spiritual Israel

The church is depicted as Christ's body, and is also identified in scripture as spiritual Israel:


Rom. 2:29 ... "but he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit . . . "

Rom. 4:16 ... "Abraham, who is the father of us all" ...

Gal. 3:7 ". . . only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham."

Rom 9:4 They are Israelites, God's adopted children. They have the Lord's glory, the pledges, Moses' Teachings, the true worship, and the promises.


The USA is the land of many of "Abraham's sons." Thus, 2 Chr 7:14 applies.

Simply put, God was not talking to or about the Church the boC in 2 Chron. 7:14. Thank God that he has revealed something more excellent in the revelation of the mystery of Christ (Rom 16:25, Eph 3:1-6).
The Church can glory in receiving all spiritual blessings in heavenly places (Eph 1:3) instead of waiting in vain for earthly blessings and curses that were promised to the nation of Israel, not us, in the first place.

2Chr 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The humananity of most Spirit-filled Christians tends to misunderstand God's perspective on prayer, so in general they will pray selfishly 10 - 30 minutes, focusing on themselves and what is important to them.

Heb 11:6 . . . that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

This shows that prayer should be about CRAVING God, about using Scripture, about praying for what He wants - Is 42:8, 43:7. This often takes 2 - 3 hours.

The #1 priority facing the USA is National Security. Apart from that nothing else really matters if we can't be adequately protected from our foreign & domestic enemies. Our POTUS must have strength of character, be decisive, level-headed & well informed when dealing with international affairs. Our governor's primary concern should be taking care of domestic affairs of their residents, i.e., health, education, public friendly law enforcement, jobs, infrastructure maintenance, disaster preparedness, etc. These should be job one for governors & mayors nationwide. Our POTUS should never have to juggle a plethora of domestic issues. For us to think the POTUS should be the magician in chief is insane!

An issue is an important topic or problem for debate or discussion. God's judgment isn't debatable Gordon. At least, I don't think so.

Ever since the fall of man, people have turned away from God & sinfully trusted in ourselves Karen.

My question has more to do with what's happening in the world today, amongst countries great & small, as pertains to the very survival of millions of people in the U.S. & billions worldwide. In my opinion, I think this one issue must take first priority over all others when we choose a new POTUS/Commander in Chief. The other national issues depend upon our satisfying the demands of the #1 priority. It behooves us to elect the best qualified candidate running for POTUS. Otherwise...
