You said: StrongAxe has 1,393 votes. Should he be President? Does he vote for himself? Hmmmm!...

It may be possible to vote for yourself (I don't know. I haven't tried). But I DO know that you can only vote for someone once - the system remembers your vote. So even if it were possible to vote for oneself, one could only do it once.

As far as being President, I have absolutely no desire for that. Leave it for someone with political aspirations and talent.

You wrote: I have personally seen thousands of people given food stamps (with the presumption that they can't afford to buy food) all the while they are able to purchase iphones, big screen televisions, surround sound systems, computers, and pay monthly cable television bills, high speed internet, and go partying. While there is nothing illegal about that,

When you apply for food stamps, you must disclose all sources of income, and all assets. If you have enough money to buy all those things you mentioned, the amount of food stamps you receive will be greatly reduced or eliminated. If you don't report them, that's welfare fraud.


Divorced Christian Wedding
  
1stcliff:

The prohibition against adultery was first in the Old Testament. The penalty for it was death by stoning. Yet most of the patriarchs and kings had multiple wives, with no punishment, and no criticism by prophets of God. David WAS criticized for Bathsheba - not because she was a multiple wife, but because he committed adultery with her while her former husband was Uriah was alive, and he had Uriah killed to cover it up. Solomon WAS criticized for multiple wives - not because they were many of them, but because they led him to worship other gods. The polygamy itself was never criticized.

You wrote: Clooney: That's "Jerry" (upper case "J").

First of all, it's Cluny, not Cloony. He's not a Hollywood actor.
Second of all, jerry6593 himself spells it with a lower-case "j", so why is it wrong for others to use the same spelling?


Divorced Christian Wedding
  
1stcliff:

You asked: Many of the OT Saints had more than one living wife or concubine that God did not fault them for....why now the "change"?,

Having multiple wives is not the same as divorcing one and marrying another.


Divorced Christian Wedding
  
1stcliff:

I think the point that Cluny is trying to make is that it is hypocritical for such service providers to balk, on religious grounds, at providing such services to same-sex couples (something Jesus never spoke about), while not batting an eyelash at providing them to divorced couples (something Jesus DID speak about).


Does God Control Us
  
Marc:

It IS somewhat hypocritical for JWs to criticize other Christian groups for having their own private interpretations of scripture, determined by their own leaderships - but then JWs themselves also have their own private interpretation of scripture, interpreted by JWs' own leadership.

Mark_Eaton:

I think SSD and SSI take into account other sources of income, so if you get retirement benefits, your social security benefits may be reduced, or even eliminated. I am just in the process of getting SSI (I was working until October, but was subsequently diagnosed with leukemia and spent 3 of the past 4 months in the hospital, and it's not clear if I will ever be able to hold down a regular job after this). They look at every source of income, every bank account, every asset that you might be able to sell, etc.


  
This is a test.

Warwick:

It it is possible, for a blog that is nearly closed (e.g. 74 posts), to right-click "Reply to this blog" and open the reply in another window. One can do this several times to get several reply windows. One could then reply in each window, increasing the total above 75. I am not sure whether this would work or not.

Also, blog replies seem to be counted when they are posted to the blog, not when they are submitted. So if a blog has 74 posts, several people could reply, but none of the posts would appear until the moderators approved them, again giving more than 75 posts.

As far as this being a JW run site, I find that highly unlikely, given comments that moderators have made in the past.

Haz27:

You said: I don't see anyone advocating that people starve to death. Such claims against conservatives are just leftist propaganda to further their own agenda of destroying western societies through an increasing welfare burden

Many American republicans push strongly to reduce food stamps and other social programs. Many families rely on these, and for many of those, these are their only source of food. If your only source of food is reduced or eliminated, and you have no alternatives, you can starve to death. Similarly, eliminating health care is saying "if you get sick, you might as well die".


Jed:

There is a vast difference between "won't work" and "can't work".


God Doesn't Intervene
  
jerry6593:

You asked: Why do you think Cluny can't answer for himself?

I never said he didn't. However, a post posted publicly to a public forum is fair game for anyone to respond to.

If love truly fulfilled the Law, why is murder still with us?

If people won't obey a law like "love your neighbor", what makes you think they are more likely to obey "don't kill", "don't steal", etc.?


Do You Pray For Presidents
  
Leon:

You wrote of Haz27: I haven't learned to be civil? You're the pot calling the kettle black! :D So sad.,

As much as Haz27 and I appear to disagree on many things, I can't find any posts where he has been in any way uncivil. Could you please quote one?

Jed:

Working for a living and being responsible for one's own actions are good conservative ideals. The idea that if somebody doesn't have a job, he should just be left to starve to death - that is ultra-conservative. Decreasing spending is a good conservative idea. Decreasing spending on social programs, while funneling billions int the military and corporate subsidies is ultra-conservative.

Let he who is free of sin cast the first stone. Jesus may have been free of sin, but none of the rest of us is.

You said: So you are Ultra Liberal as opposed to Ultra conservative.

Where do you get this "ultra" stuff from? Ultra conservative is bad, and ultra liberal is bad. Extremism in any form tends to put one's own biased agenda ahead of the truth, which is never a good thing.


God Doesn't Intervene
  
jerry6593:

We have "love your neighbor as yourself", and if we obey that, we no longer need "don't kill", "don't steal", "don't perjure yourself", "don't commit adultery", etc. - because we will ALREADY not be doing any of those things.

Jerusalem:

You wrote: We have the mind of Christ. :]

While this is the ideal, given all the disagreement, arguments, cat-calling, and downright vilification from one set of Christians to another (even on these blogs), one tends to wonder.


Obama National Prayer
  
Leon:

Regardless of how reprehensible someone's conduct is here (and I am speaking in general terms here), that is no reason to call him names. All that does is lower you to his level. If someone lowers his dignity by throwing mud at you, this is no reason to lower your own dignity by throwing mud back.

Jesus said, "Do unto others as YOU WOULD HAVE THEM do unto you" - NOT "as they have done unto you". Christianity is supposed to be pro-active, not reactive.

Trav:

You said: Liberal did mean one thing then and stands for abomination now as a belief.

No, it's only ultra-conservatives who cannot abide anyone believing in any way different that they do that consider it an abomination. They don't speak for the entire body of Christ. The Pharisees were similarly theologically rigid.
