Judge Amy Barrett A Christian

Judge Amy Barrett, is being considered for a place on the Supreme Court. The biggest objection about her, from Democrats, is that she is a Christian.

Do those of you here, who are Democrats, have the same objection? If not, do you support her nomination? If not, why?

Kathr, are you hearing voices?

Because I am not hearing what you claim to be God's Voice?

Kathr: we'll see you at the Judgement, and what God says to you. Ignorance is not an excuse.//

What am I ignoring?

You are the one admitting you gave graven images to your daughters.

Poor girls. So young and innocent. They trusted you not to lead them into idolatry.

//You have been told and warned, and the Lord will also show you you have. And He will read your own argument back to you. I certainly won't be putting in a good word for you.//

Assuming aren't we?

I guess you will be surprise to see me in Heaven.

You will recognize me as the one with a BIG grin on my face and a wink eye.
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/3/18


Kathr: You know very well that toys are not the same thing as we see in scripture.//

Did God say no graven image unless they are TOYS?

NOW it's different? Your graven images are not my graven images?

Let's see what Exodus 20:4 states:

"You shall not make for yourself (I guess for your family either) an image in the FORM of ANYTHING in heaven above (I forgot eagles and birds) or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. (I forgot fishes you might have printed on wall paper for your little ones.)

Okay, tell me what did I post in my last blog that wasn't part of the form on earth?

//Either your mind is so twisted or you are just as dumb as a nail.//

NOPE, I just exposed you as a hypocrite.
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/3/18


Like I said on another post, corrupt minds fellowship with corrupt minds. That's all I can say Nicole. You know very well that toys are not the same thing as we see in scripture. Either your mind is so twisted or you are just as dumb as a nail. Either way, you just go on and worship your graven images and teach others to do as well, and we'll see you at the Judgement, and what God says to you. Ignorance is not an excuse. You have been told and warned, and the Lord will also show you you have. And He will read your own argument back to you. I certainly won't be putting in a good word for you.

I hope no one let their children play with cars, tow trucks, dumper trucks, air planes, teddy bears, Barbie dolls, cabbage dolls, puppets, potato heads, fake foods in fake kitchens, fake furniture in fake houses, fake animals such as 'my little pony', chickens, pigs, horses, in fake farms, fake green army men to play, Native Americans and Cowboys for fake battles.

After all you are TEACHING them to play with images not ALLOWED in the 10 Commandants according to you all.

They are worshipping these toys. You even punish them by taking them away when they misbehave, but return them when they are good.

You place them under a Christmas tree wrapped in paper to surprise them and make them happy.

BAD, BAD CHRISTIAN PARENTS!
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/2/18


Kathr, what is CLEAR is that you and another person CAN'T explain NUMBERS 21:8

2 Kings 18:4 came CENTURIES LATER.

Or are you SAYING that KING was more righteous than GOD the ALMIGHTY?

So when God told Moses to make an IMAGE after a serpent GOD was disobedient to Himself?

EXPLAIN Numbers 21:8 or concede you were WRONG!

You are telling me I can't have statues because it's a grave image, but you can have pictures and your girls can have dolls. Which BTW are IMAGES of people

I am also sure you had a piggy bank as well. I can go on and on!

You all practice 'Not for THEE but for ME' a lot!
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/2/18




Well what is clear is the verses I posted where Sisobedient Israle like the Catholic Church worshipped the bronze serpent ...where it along with other things were destroyed by a RIGHTEOUS KING, ....who KNEW it was Idolotry to worship it, and burn incense to it.

The bronze serpent was a reminder of the real serpents that bit them in the desert because of their disobedience.
---kathr4453 on 9/2/18


Anyone that takes this passage from The O. T. and as pretext to spreading their cultist idolatrous religion, and denying and ignoring GOD'S WORD against idolatry: "You shall not make any image from above, from the earth and under the sea and worship them - shall not inherit GOD'S Kingdom and those who keep on defending and uplifting any religion that is doing that and on top of that denying it that is done: THE LIGHT OF GOD'S SPIRIT is not in them, but they under reprobation and as well trampling upon GOD'S HOLINESS AND COMMANDMENTS - why keep on listening to their blasphemous word?
---Melody on 9/1/18


Kathr: The serpent, a symbol of sin and judgment, was lifted up from the earth and put on a tree,//

No, not sins but that the sins OF THE PEOPLE were placed on the serpent.

AS OUR SINS were placed on Jesus

//which was a symbol of a curse (Galatians 3:13).//

That still DOESN'T explain you dening the FACT that God the Almightly told the people to MAKE an image.

Faith without action wasn't going to save them.

ACTION IN LOOKING AT AN IMAGE SAVED THEM.

//Israelites had to look to the upraised symbol in the wilderness.//


SYMBOL?

They didn't know it was a symbol of Jesus?
Only that it was an IMAGE of a snake!

BTW, Our debate is about the image made by Moses not Paul
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/1/18


2 Kings 18 Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.

3 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father did.

4 He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.

5 He trusted in the Lord God of Israel, so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.
---kathr4453 on 9/1/18


What I believe:
The next reference we find in the Bible to this serpent is in John 3:14. Jesus indicated that this bronze serpent was a foreshadowing of Him. The serpent, a symbol of sin and judgment, was lifted up from the earth and put on a tree, which was a symbol of a curse (Galatians 3:13). The serpent lifted up and cursed symbolized Jesus, who takes away sin from everyone who would look to Him in faith, just like the Israelites had to look to the upraised symbol in the wilderness. Paul is reminding the Galatians that Jesus became a curse for us, although He was blameless and sinlessthe spotless Lamb of God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Kathr, That's too funny. Nicole thinks she's WINNING when it comes to Idolotry and witchcraft, making up bazaar analogies to justify her disobedience to the Word of God.//

I don't think I know I am WINNING because God KNOWS I ONLY worship Him.

//However I did add scripture to support scripture. The serpent represented SIN//

No the serpent represents Jesus. John 12:32

//It was an act of FAITH, as the bronze serpent itself held no power.//

BINGO!

But if they DIDN'T look at the image they wouldn't have be saved.

They needed to behold an image to LIVE!

You can have FAITH not looking at the image, but they would have DIED with their Faith in God for disobedience of NOT looking at the image.
---Nicole_Lacey on 8/31/18


That's too funny. Nicole thinks she's WINNING when it comes to Idolotry and witchcraft, making up bazaar analogies to justify her disobedience to the Word of God.

Yet no scripture supports here bazaar ramblings.

However I did add scripture to support scripture. The serpent represented SIN ..original sin brought about by the SERPENT in the Garden of Eden. Not all looked upon the serpent, acknowledging they were sinners, thereby being healed. It was an act of FAITH, as the bronze serpent itself held no power.
---kathr4453 on 8/21/18


Kathr: when you decide to get off the drugs and have something to say, then I'll get back with you. I'm not going to argue YOUR NONSENSICAL blathering with you. You come up with the most bazaar reply,//

Listen everyone, Kathr just used #5 of the 13 'Rules for Radicals' by Saul Alinsky.

"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. Its irrational.. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions- Saul Alinsky.

Not with me, Sweetheart.

You can't explain your position so you can ONLY call names or attack me.

A simple 'I don't know' will do.

//I really have better things to do than debate WITH YOU.//

Yup, esp. when you are losing.
---Nicole_Lacey on 8/20/18


Nicole when you decide to get off the drugs and have something to say, then I'll get back with you. I'm not going to argue YOUR NONSENSICAL blathering with you. You come up with the most bazaar reply, only to keep some argument going you created in your own mind, only you know why. Attention? Who knows, but I really have better things to do than debate WITH YOU.

John 3:14-16

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
---kath4453 on 8/20/18


Kathr: God only asked them to LOOK UPON the serpent, acknowledging they were sinners.//

No, no, no, no. They made a graven image as God commanded and by Moses hands after the 10 commandments.

Shame on you!
They didn't sin against the statue, but against God!

Num 21:7 telling Moses We have sinned in complaining against the Lord and you. Pray to the Lord to take the serpents from us. THEN God instructed Moses what to do next.

Guess what? Moses KEPT the statue. 2 Kings 18:4

Why? The people were healed.

Knocking down your statements point by point with logical responses make be rambling to you if you are not logical

//his funeral when he died years later, his coffin had a HUGE "M" on the coffin. M we were told represented MARY, according to the announcers.//

Kathr, never seen Elvis Presley dolls? Anywho

//do children treat them as some mystic object to be revered.//

I hope not!

Well at least NOT with Catholic children. I can't speak about Protestant children.

//Just look in the OT to see exactly what these objects represented, //

Okay

Num 21:8-9 God told Moses to make a bronze serpent and placed on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would LOOK at the bronze serpent and live.

Why not fast, pray to God for a healing? Why didn't Moses tell God, that's worshipping an object?

Because God, Moses and Israel knew they were NOT WORSHIPPING the object.

Only people like you passing by them would THINK they were worshipping an object. Matt 7:1
---Nicole_Lacey on 8/19/18

Nicole, plastic dolls or stuffed animals don't represent a dead person, nor do children treat them as some mystic object to be revered . Just look in the OT to see exactly what these objects represented , how they were treated or used, and why God hates it. Don't justify what you all do.

Example,..in the year 2000 when the Pope then was making his rounds preparing for the Jubilee 2000, he bowed and kissed the statue of Our Lady of Fatima or 'something like that,' and dodged a bullet from some nut case, and believed that Mary saved his life. Also at his funeral when he died years later, his coffin had a HUGE "M" on the coffin. M we were told represented MARY, according to the announcers.
---kathr4453 on 8/19/18


Kathr, :D My sister had a dachshund who would target the doll or barbie my nieces would played with that day.

The moment they put it down the doll he would tear the arms and legs off.

Ran around house with the head by the hair as they were screaming chasing him.

At time he would snatch the dolls from the hands.

If he couldn't tear it apart he would hide the dolls.


The Marian dolls or Saint dolls are not given as a toy. It would be placed in the room as decoration.

Like those girls with 1001 stuffed animals on a made bed.

BTW, have you heard from Darlene?

Aren't you aware of the fact that THE LORD knows of this from the beginning and where are you putting yourself by going astray and away from GOD'S TRUTH?

My daughter loved My Little Pony dolls, but not sure if she kissed them. Unfortunately we just got a beautiful new baby Yellow Lab who one day ( while out shopping) took every one of her dolls, and bit their heads off, leaving a huge pile at the front door as we entered. It was a sight to see.

Sometime I'll tell you about their Easter baskets and hidden eggs around the house that disappeared...until we found the evidence...yes another pile waiting at the front door.....

I know I did as a little girl. Must girls do.

Did you take the dolls away telling them they can't worship the dolls?

Some buy trucks and cars for their boys and even daughters these days.

Have you ever told their parents they were giving graven images to their children?

Do you have a picture of flowers in your home?

Worst do you have a grave image of your family in your purse, home and in your phone?

Kathr: So if I were to witness to someone say...from Iran who is Islam...//

Lets break that up!

1. witnessing someone to Jesus isn't done by telling them first they are going to hell.

2. I wouldn't ASSUME as you that EVERYONE in Iran is Islamic.

Are you basing that because of their skin color????

As I said I USED an analogy to Melody by attacking her skin color as some Black people have done.

Everyone knows on CN I ALWAYS defend White people esp. White people in the South.

Since I am a Black Hispanic Republican I can TRULY say that 99.5 % White people are NOT racists.

As you and I have debated many times, I said my own Black people discriminated against me for being a Republican.

Trying to bring people to Christ isn't as easy as you thought.

Be courageous, strong, tactful and humble.

You will ALWAYS find someone stronger, wiser and clever than you as I have found out years ago.

Change your approach once and awhile.

Realize you are NOT an expert on other people's faith

Muslims think you are not following the TRUE God.

Jews think you are following the wrong Messiah.

Neither will I!

Nicole can repeat over and over that "people discriminate Catholics" - but those words won't stop the facts that are clearly see by anyone and they don't have to excel in spirituality, and sad if they keep on denial for if so: What's hope of salvation is for them? Why don't you Nicole go to the SOURCE OF THE TRUTH about the worshiping of idols under the RCC and argue with THE LORD?

People like Melody keep telling Catholics they worship idols and Mary. No matter how many times Catholics DENY it

Just like BLM accuse White people of being racist!

99% of White people in America are NOT racist! But BLM believes if you are White it automatically makes you racists.

Just as Melody believes if you are Catholic it automatically makes you an idolatry.

BTW, read my post AGAIN. I said I didn't believe Melody was a racist. I said many NON-WHITE people believe she was a racist.

I'm NOT small-minded as Melody.

---Nicole_Lacey on 8/11/18


Nicole_Lacey:

Nothing Melody has indicates her race. She spoke about Catholicism, and this may indicate prejudice, NOT racism.

There are many more white than black U.S. Catholics. That you can take hostility towards Catholicism to make someone white, then accuse them of racism is patently absurd. Deducing someone's race based solely on religious beliefs is, itself, very racist.

The very assumption "If you're white, you're automatically racist" is ITSELF racist, as it assumes everyone of a particular race is NECESSARILY guilty of a crime, solely by virtue of being a member of a particular race. How can you not see that?

Bottom line, we are all human beings coming from different race's and cultures in Gods eyes, and there is ONE TRUTH that applies to all humans regardless of skin color, or nationality.

So if I were to witness to someone say...from Iran who is Islam....and held up the ONLY ONE TRUTH....What would my skin color have to do with it?

In earlier centuries, people declared as heretics were burned at the stake because of the Inquisition. In Spain, one third of Jews were killed, one third were expelled, and one third forced to convert to Catholicism. Some people like Galieo were forbidden to teach by the Church. So, yes, the Catholic Church did force its beliefs on people. That may not longer be true today, but it was in the past.

It's also possible and indeed important to vote on a female Catholic judge and judge her based on her actual qualifications that matter (i.e. her judicial opinions), rather than ones that don't (i.e. gender or religion), but I'm surprised this didn't occur to you.

Hello Melody, I hope you are not joining the group accusing Catholics of worshipping idols?

Idol worship is a grave sin. Which Catholics Church teaches.

Many people worship money, other humans, work, hobbies, car, entertainment or knowledge.

Anyone who puts anything above God. Are you part of that group?

It wouldn't be nice for me to assume you were, Matthew 7:1

Kathr, tell me anytime any Catholic tried to force our faith on anyone? Name one?

We fed, teach and gave medical attention for free and without anything in return.

I know many Protestants who demand people to listen to the Gospel before they giving them a bowl of soup!
---Nicole_Lacey on 7/29/18


Interestingly, let's take our Jewish Justices. Do they keep,the Sabbath? Do they eat kosher? Do they not also have many religious traditions and beliefs ....yet here's the difference. Jewish people have NEVER tried to force their religious beliefs on others. Not even during the OT times. If you wanted to practice their beliefs you joined them, they didn't force you to join them or try to take over your beliefs.

We already have a history of the RCC for over 1500 years forcing their beliefs on others to the point of murder.

Why shouldn't that history be questioned?

DON'T tell me someone who was denied confirmation 50 yrs ago. Prejudiced NOW. TODAY!

To Nicole or whoever here that truly desires giving Honor to WHOM Honor deserves and that's THE LORD AND HIS WORD. . . What has THE LORD said about those who worship[ idols? (and someone that openly accepts belonging in such kind of religion - that person cannot be a Born Again Christian - as many with their own words trying to seduce others into believing this falseness and constantly deny and cover up their false doctrines that trample upon GOD'S WORD: "Didn't THE LORD say, what's the use to gain the whole world, and lose your own soul"? - those who trust in their own religion are doing just that!

Cluny, you mistaken my post with StrongAxe. I said Justice Kennedy. He said JFK.

//MY point is that it was not limited to Republicans.//

That's why I said you made my point. They don't care if your are Democrat. They will STILL BE prejudice against you because you are CATHOLIC!

//It's the job of the house to question appointees for the Court//

You mean the Senate.

//Just because someone questions the decisions of a judge does NOT mean they are "discriminating" against them.//

CORRECT. Questions about past ACTUAL judgements about COURT'S Decisions not if he or she prays the Rosary too much! Not if they use Birth control or not! Not if they are not eating meat on Fridays for the wrong reasons!
---Nicole_Lacey on 7/28/18


\\Exhibit 2, You just proved my point.

Prejudice against Catholics was and still world spread.\\

Nicole, you didn't get MY point.

Your point is that it was just Republicans were prejudiced against JFK. AT least, that's what your post meant.

MY point is that it was not limited to Republicans.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

NurseRobert: Just who are "you all"?//

I think I was clear. People who use that line as an excuse

//explain why the Supreme Court is almost 60 percent Catholics when the general population is only about 23%?//

Could it be because we are honest and fair? Anyway by that logic why has only one person been elected President and VP?

Read 'Why Catholics and Jews dominate at the Supreme Court' by Yonat Shimron "Catholics and Jews both struggled with religious prejudice and may have seen the legal profession as a way to ensure that their rights were protected."

//as long as they are following the law, their religion is their business.//

THANK YOU! So can people STOP using that stupid excuse?
---Nicole_Lacey on 7/23/18


Nicole_Lacey:

When one talks about discrimination about politicians, one typically refers to voters making biased choices against them based on prejudices. In the case of Kennedy being elected by senators, a unanimous confirmation does not indicate bias against. Who cares what the American People think about it, since they don't get a voice in the choice of justices, and their opinions on his rulings have no legal weight? We don't talk about ISIS discriminating against American politicians, even though they hate every one of them, because ISIS has no voice in electing them.
---StrongAxe on 7/23/18


You all use that dumb excuse every time you all what to discriminate Catholics.

---Nicole_Lacey on 7/22/18

"you all"? Just who are "you all"?

If you think Catholics are so discriminated against please explain why the Supreme Court is almost 60 percent Catholics when the general population is only about 23%?

The current court is:

5 Catholics
3 Jews
1 Protestant (who was actually born Catholic but changed to Episcopalian) Hardly representative of the country.

In the end, as long as they are following the law, their religion is their business.

Kennedy did NOT put the RCC before the constitution. There WAS prejudice before Kennedy. Kennedy believed in the separation of Church and State. And we also know this because when Santorum was running ( also Catholic) he criticized Kennedy's belief of the separation of Church and State. When he did, he lost supporters faster than a New York minute.

If anyone has ever watched Gangs of New York for its historical documentation, it was about the Catholics who still pledged allegance to the Pope vs American Catholics who didn't. That history has always been a reason to question. No one wanted to see America come under the control of the RCC they came to America to ESCAPE.

Nicole being Catholic cannot be objective here.

Hogwash. Kennedy was confirmed unanimously. He was never discriminated against.

What do muslims have to do with this conversation? Sharia law is no different than Beit Din. Nice try at diversion.

Fact is Feinstien comments about her religion was very germane to her being appointed to the court. In this country decisions by the court need to be based on LAW, not on religious beliefs. It wasn't if she was Catholic but how her Catholicism affected her decisions.

You need to stop with the "poor picked on Catholics" routine.

Democrats were similarly concerned Barrett would place her faith above the Constitution, but this was not paranoia - she actually SAID she would do this.

Your blog "Are Democrats really as evil as they appear in the news?" shows your total bias. If Democrats can't be Christians "because they hate God", violating Jesus's First Commandment, you can't be a Christian "because you hates Democrats", violating "love your neighbor".

From a SDA site.

Seventh Day Adventist Church, which has no religious policies governing health care. Adventist hospitals perform abortions and provide a full range of reproductive care, Parris said.

We understand that these are decisions made between a woman and her physician, and we do not interfere with that individual decision, she said.



Job 27:8

8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?

I thought Roe vs Wade was decided in the Supreme Court, where Justice Kennedy, a Republican, conservative Christian cast the deciding vote FOR abortion.

Justice Roberts a Conservative Christian Republican cast the deciding vote for Obama Care.


Stating Democrats are not Christian is so aweful. Believe it or not, many republican women have had abortions. We even had a Republican Congressman ask his mistress to get an abortion...and he was on the Committee against abortion. WOW!

So fact is LIARS AND HYPOCRITES are also not Christians either Jerry.

Try again Jerry

jerry6593:

You wrote: Democrats can't be Christians because they hate God.

This is such a biased and hateful statement that I don't even know where to begin. Democrats don't hate God. They hate the hypocrisy of those on the right who call themselves Christians, yet who constantly vote for policies that specifically go against everything Jesus himself ever taught.

There are many Christians who have cultic beliefs, i.e. "only our way of believing is right, and if you don't believe exactly as we do, you're not a Christian, you're an evil atheist heathen". Jesus never taught that, and we shouldn't believe that. Such thinking deliberately divides the body of Christ, something both Jesus and Paul preached against.
---StrongAxe on 7/14/18


David: Democrats can't be Christians because they hate God. They always insert their anti-God beliefs into all their political discussions. A SCOTUS Judge is supposed to reason according to the US Constitution as written - not according to their religious beliefs or political leanings. Conversely, Democrats wish to legislate their agenda in the courts. The result of their agenda is 1.3 million dead babies in the US last year.

And here again is this problem of many thinking America is a Christian Nation. Wrong. America is a nation of Christians, but also a nation of many who are not Christians. We are NOT a Theocracy David. The ONLY way we could be a Christian Nation is if we were a Theocracy.

Just look what happened in MA when the Putitans tried to make their state a Theocracy. There were REAL WITCH HUNTS, and false accusations and Christmas trees were Illegal, punishable by their laws....an on and on. We are NOT Gods new chosen people. God NEVER made a Covenant with a Gentile Nation or took the one away from Israel and gave it to America.

No scripture backs this up. If God Himself did not declare it....it is MAN MADE SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS. =666
---kathr4453 on 7/14/18


The objection from Democrats is NOT that she is a Christian. Most Supreme Court justices are. Their problem is that she said a judge should place his/her own personal faith above the law when rendering decisions.

This violates the First Amendment establishment clause and sets a very dangerous precedent. If a Christian judge is allowed to place biblical law above the constitution, what's to stop a Muslim judge from placing Sharia above the constitution, or Wiccan or Satanist or other judges from similarly judging according to their own religious beliefs?

It's the same argument as with prayers in schools. Many Christians want it, but would scream to high heaven if it were a Muslim prayer being taught.
