  • Darren Wilson, recalling shooting, said Michael Brown looked like a demon

    Mr Rogers to bgill

    My SIL believes in demon possession. On one of his tours in Iraq, he was part of a team that arrested a ‘family man’ who protested his innocence. He was still protesting his innocence as my SIL came up the stairs from a basement that had various body parts - arms, legs, heads - hanging from the ceiling. When my SIL said that, the innocent family man stopped talking, looked at him, and smiled...and my SIL said his eyes were like the entrance of hell itself.

    A few months later, he had the same sort of experience while guarding a man accused of eating the flesh of those he killed. The man was chained up, but he looked at my SIL and smiled...and hell was in his eyes.

    Me? I believe the Bible and Jesus. There are demons, and they possess some. Probably more than we realize.

  • Was Al Moher Right About Sexual Orientation and Secular Counseling?

    Mr Rogers to Mrs. Don-o

    Some have a gambling orientation. Some have a drinking orientation. Some have an adultery orientation. I have a pride orientation and an anger orientation. Overall, man has a sin orientation.

    Oddly enough, we only seem to use the term ‘orientation’ as an excuse for homosexuality. I had a temper when I was a baby, I’m told. Still do in my 50s. That doesn’t excuse my temper. It just means I need to submit to God and be changed. It is also something that counseling can help.

    I read a book years ago by a guy who specialized in counseling homosexuals. He said it was not genetic, but it was often rooted in the first years of life. He said it was a continuum - some chose to be homosexual, some could change to heterosexual, some would always deal with homosexual desires, on down to some who would remain active homosexuals and were glad to be that way. His counseling focused on helping those who wanted to change.

    Mohler is wrong, according to this guy. I cannot speak to it from a counseling viewpoint, but I do think Mohler comes too close to excusing it when he talks about an orientation.

    BTW - 25 years ago, a black friend of mine & I were talking. He came from East St Louis. He told me I was naive about race. ‘If I took you to my brother’s house’, he said, ‘the only thing that would stop him from killing you is fear of being caught. He killed a white guy for being white and did his time in prison, and his fear of going back would be the ONLY thing that MIGHT keep you alive. I couldn’t.’

    Mr Rogers to dfwgator

    “Desi didn’t have to drug women to get them.”

    Neither would Cosby, although Cosby MAY have used drugs. But he didn’t exactly force those drugs on anyone, and those who go to a big star’s hotel room at night have to be mighty darn STUPID to believe the star just wants to talk to them. Eden was smarter than that by a long shot. I think every girl in my high school in the 70s would have been smarter than that.

    My point, tho, was that the 60s & 70s were very different from the current corporate environment. We’ve gone from where bedding women was common to where the guy needs to record the gal screaming “Yes! Yes! Yes!” - and be saying, “You want me to continue” in between the yeses.

    The women meeting Cosby were complicit in what he was doing.

    Desi Arnez chased a lot of skirts in his time. So did a great many stars.

    “The audience roared with laughter as Eden quipped that dodging advances by Desi Arnaz on the set of “I Love Lucy,” on which she had a guest role early in her career, “wasn’t hard.” “I had a black belt in hiding behind the sets, the cameras, anything.” She fondly recalled that Lucille Ball was strong and kind: “The most wonderful woman I’d ever worked with.”

    I looked it up and there is no indication of animosity between the two...and I provided the evidence.

    “Look it up yourself, you are obviously a defender of this rapist.”

    I don’t think he raped anyone unless they were underage...and I doubt his handlers would intentionally have brought someone underage around. I think he had sex with women who were willing to stretch out on the “casting couch”, as it has been known for 100+ years.

    I think he had sex with a lot of women who knew full well what they were doing, including any drugs. I think he is as sleazy as the women who went to his hotel room. Behavior like that has been going on in Hollywood for about 100 years now, so it shouldn’t shock anyone. And I think the media is lapping it up to draw attention away from Obama declaring himself King.

    “Stars from the Cosby Show are now saying it is true.”

    Actually:

    “In 2002, tabloids reported Bonet refused to join the cast for a 10th-anniversary special, quoting an unnamed castmate as saying: “Year after year, we watched Bill throw Lisa one bone after another, and all she did was bite his hand. The rest of us were happy to be on a hit show, but Lisa didn’t seem to appreciate her good fortune.”

    And she did not say he tried to have sex with her, just that “According to the karma of past actions, one’s destiny unfolds...”

    Mr Rogers to 1010RD

    I find it odd that anyone is shocked that an aspiring actress (or model) might be willing to have sex with a ‘mentor’ who had power to influence her career. That has been true in Hollywood since the first film was made.

    http://www.express.co.uk/expressyourself/167269/Dark-side-of-Oz-The-exploitation-of-Judy-Garland

    I do not doubt Cosby was having sex with a lot of women, and he may well have used drugs. What I doubt is that the women did not know what was going on and were no complicit in what happened. Hollywood is a grossly immoral society. It always has been. There are exceptions, but not many...

    “... BUT up until his death he had some very choice words concerning what he thought of his “friend” Bill Cosby”

    Hmmm...

    “The success of the show is attributed to the chemistry between Culp and Cosby. Fans tuned in more for their hip banter than for the espionage stories, making I Spy a leader in the buddy genre. The two actors quickly developed a close friendship that mirrored their on-screen characters, a friendship that would last until Culp’s death in 2010.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Spy_%281965_TV_series%29

    “”Even to this day, [Cosby’s wife] Camille would just walk away when Bob and I got together,” Cosby recalled with a laugh during an interview Wednesday. “We almost had our own language and our own way of connecting, sometimes without saying anything.”

    “To our wives,” continued Cosby, “it was some kind of code. Sometimes we would start to laugh, seemingly at nothing. Our wives hated the two of us together. It must have been horrible for them. They became friends and just looked at the two of us like we were nuts.”

    Also:

    http://youtu.be/z7up2M_cbKs?t=1m35s

    Cosby admits to womanizing in the 70s, and I have no good reason to think he changed. But we ought to be honest about what we know, and what we do not know, and not pretend people who liked each other did not.

    “”I never had so much fun in my life, never, before or since,” he said of “I Spy” in a 2007 interview with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Archive of American Television.

    Culp and Cosby remained good friends after the series left air.”

    In Arizona, the statute of limitations is 7 years. 7 + 2004 = 2011. The DA in that case said he didn’t have enough evidence to go to trial.

    Any of the women in long term relationships could have gotten proof. If they were drugged and raped, they could have gone to the cops and the DNA and drug tests would have put Cosby behind bars. They did not.

    “So you are invested in overcoming any evidence of Cosby’s guilt over all these decades and accusers.”

    Do you enjoy lying in public?

    However...yes, I object to people bringing up charges long after the statute of limitations has run out. If you do not understand what a statute of limitation is or why it exists, please do some research and learn. It is a fundamental concept involving fairness in our society.

    Chill. I read one account and I found it utterly unbelievable. I haven’t invested any significant time doing anything on FR lately. I do think women - and any teen girl - ought to assume some responsibility for their own decisions. I don’t go into Harlem and shout the N word, in part because I never use the N word and in part because I don’t want to be beaten to death. I try to avoid being on the road at midnight on Friday & Saturday late at night - not because I’m drunk, but because others are. A few sensible precautions are needed in life. If you are a pretty 18 year old who wants to be/stay a virgin, going to a guy’s hotel room at night after he flew you across the country to join him is just damn stupid.

    I also dislike ANYONE who starts making accusations 20-30 years after the fact. There is a reason why statutes of limitations exist...in Arizona, for example, sexual assault on someone 15 or older has a 7 year limit.

    I don’t like Cosby. I never have. I’ve only read one account. In that account, the girl/woman traveled around the country and went to his hotel at night for 4 years. I don’t think there is anything credible in her story.

    I have disliked Cosby since an interview he did back when “I Spy” was on TV. I never watched the Cosby Show. He did one routine in the 60s that I found funny. Other than that, I found him weird. I felt that way when I was about 10 years old, so I think a girl in her late teens ought to have noticed something, as should her parents. Who in the hell lets their ‘little girl’ travel across the country and spend time alone with an older man in his hotel, and encourages it!?!?

    In the 1800s, the age of consent was usually around 10-13. In England, it was raised to 13 in 1875. Canada raised it from 14 to 16 in 2008. Iceland raised it from 14 to 15 in 2007.

    In Idaho and Hawaii, it is 14. It is 15 in Virginia and Colorado. Arizona uses 18. Some of the states with limits below 16 do so only if the person having sex is within a certain age bracket of the girl.

    http://www.webistry.net/jan/consent.html

    “Until a few decades ago, many states used to have provisions requiring that the teenage girl must have been of previous “chaste character” in order for the sexual conduct to be considered criminal. In 1998, Mississippi became the last state to remove this provision from its code.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_North_America#History_2

    What were the laws in 1980? Beats me.

    I don’t believe the stories about drugs. Back then, Cosby was “Cool Cos”. And how many girls/women continue to meet with a guy who has already used drugs to rape them? Not many, I guess...

    But a commentary can make me take a new or closer look at what the Bible says. It is not a substitute, and I often disagree with some aspects of a commentary, but hearing what someone else thinks makes me wonder why they think it and ask if I should think it too - or not, and why.

    On the 17th of August, a large force of 376 bombers raided Schweinfurt and Regensburg. Sixty bombers, with six hundred aircrew, didn’t come back. 16 percent losses. At that rate, the Eighth Air Force could not continue. When B-17G’s began to arrive in August and September, the forward machine guns in their chin turrets helped a little. The appalling wastage continued:

    September 6 - Over 400 bombers attacked the Stuttgart ball-bearing plant; 45 were lost.
    October 14 - Schweinfurt again. 291 B-17’s went out; 60 went down.
    January 11, 1944 - German aircraft industry targets. 600 Flying Fortresses were sent out. Because of bad weather, only 238 reached Germany; 60 were shot down.

    I’d say the guy was exaggerating, but the reality was quite harsh enough. It is also possible he was including ALL bomber losses - American & British, both theaters and including training losses.

    “I heard a prize fight manager say to his fellow who was losing badly, “David, listen to me. It’s not what’s he’s doing to you. It’s what you’re not doing.”

    Ladies and gentlemen, these people set — they opened the doors, they gave us the right, and today, ladies and gentlemen, in our cities and public schools we have 50% drop out. In our own neighborhood, we have men in prison. No longer is a person embarrassed because they’re pregnant without a husband. No longer is a boy considered an embarrassment if he tries to run away from being the father of the unmarried child...

    ...In the old days, you couldn’t hooky school because every drawn shade was an eye. And before your mother got off the bus and to the house, she knew exactly where you had gone, who had gone into the house, and where you got on whatever you had one and where you got it from. Parents don’t know that today.

    I’m talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. Where were you when he was two? Where were you when he was twelve? Where were you when he was eighteen, and how come you don’t know he had a pistol? And where is his father, and why don’t you know where he is? And why doesn’t the father show up to talk to this boy?...

    ...We cannot blame white people. White people — White people don’t live over there. They close up the shop early. The Korean ones still don’t know us as well — they stay open 24 hours...

    ... These are people going around stealing Coca Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake! Then we all run out and are outraged: “The cops shouldn’t have shot him.” What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand? I wanted a piece of pound cake just as bad as anybody else. And I looked at it and I had no money. And something called parenting said if you get caught with it you’re going to embarrass your mother.” Not, “You’re going to get your butt kicked.” No. “You’re going to embarrass your mother....

    ...Ladies and gentlemen, listen to these people. They are showing you what’s wrong. People putting their clothes on backwards. Isn’t that a sign of something going on wrong? Are you not paying attention? People with their hat on backwards, pants down around the crack. Isn’t that a sign of something or are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up? Isn’t it a sign of something when she’s got her dress all the way up to the crack — and got all kinds of needles and things going through her body. What part of Africa did this come from? We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a damned thing about Africa. With names like Shaniqua, Shaligua, Mohammed and all that crap and all of them are in jail...

    .... Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can’t land a plane with, “Why you ain’t…” You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth. There is no Bible that has that kind of language. Where did these people get the idea that they’re moving ahead on this. Well, they know they’re not; they’re just hanging out in the same place, five or six generations sitting in the projects when you’re just supposed to stay there long enough to get a job and move out.

    Now, look, I’m telling you. It’s not what they’re doing to us. It’s what we’re not doing. 50 percent drop out. Look, we’re raising our own ingrown immigrants. These people are fighting hard to be ignorant. There’s no English being spoken, and they’re walking and they’re angry. Oh God, they’re angry and they have pistols and they shoot and they do stupid things. And after they kill somebody, they don’t have a plan. Just murder somebody. Boom. Over what? A pizza? And then run to the poor cousin’s house...”

    That speech does NOT make him a conservative. IIRC, he thinks AIDS was invented to kill black people. But he was right about some things.

  • How Many Protestant Denominations Are There? [vanity]

    Mr Rogers to NYer; GeronL; Heart-Rest; boatbums

    Quoting scripture out of context demeans the quoter.

    “Later on the Lord commissioned seventy other disciples and sent them off in twos as advance-parties into every town and district where he intended to go.”

    NOTHING in the chapter suggests Jesus was giving authority to one organization with Peter at its head. Indeed, nothing in scripture suggests Peter was ever the Head of the Church. The Vicar of Christ, in scripture, is clearly the Holy Spirit. And denying the Holy Spirit is the unforgivable sin...

    “Be on your guard against false religious teachers, who come to you dressed up as sheep but are really greedy wolves. You can tell them by their fruit. Do you pick a bunch of grapes from a thorn-bush or figs from a clump of thistles? Every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree is incapable of producing bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot produce good fruit. The tree that fails to produce good fruit is cut down and burnt. So you may know men by their fruit.” — Jesus Christ

    If nothing else, folks might want to be careful about whom they call “Father”...you might not like the “Grandfather”!

    That is what we did in my high school back in 1974. We were told the same thing, so we started standing around the flag pole and praying and talking about God. The Admin was not happy, but they didn’t have the guts to arrest us.

    “Monday’s request for a restraining order comes a day after Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez refused a demand that she stop verifying provisional ballots that lack an election worker’s signature.”

    http://www.kvoa.com/news/mcsally-lawyers-trying-to-block-some-ballots/

    “A judge has denied the request of the lawyer’s for congressional candidate Martha McSally’s to block the counting of some provisional ballots in her race against Democratic Rep. Ron Barber.”

    http://www.kvoa.com/news/judge-denies-mcsally-s-blockage-of-some-provisional-ballots/

    There are roughly 6000 uncounted ballots from Pima County left in CD2. McSally’s lead is currently 341.

    Tucson and Pima County strike me as corrupt as they come. I’ll be shocked if there are not enough votes in Pima County, one way or the other, for a Dem win.

    The easiest out for the SC would be to rule in favor of the suit, then suspend its ruling for 6 months to give Congress time to rewrite the law - if they choose. The GOP would go along “for the children”, and nothing would change.
