  • It’s Official: Gary Johnson Is A Left-Wing Candidate

    Any vote that doesn’t go to Trump increases the chance of Hillary becoming president. Contrary to what NRO and the NeverTrumpers claim, it IS a binary choice, and ANYTHING other than a vote for Trump is a vote that makes President Hillary Clinton more likely. And you don’t get more liberal or hard-core Anti-American & Anti-God than that!

    “And please notice this simple puzzle. Why take the Bible literally if the following is discounted?”

    Baptists do not take the Bible literally. The Bible says “He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” - Psalms 91.4 That doesn’t mean God is literally a chicken!

    There is nothing to connect John 6 with The Last Supper, since no one present to listen to Him in John 6 knew of the Last Supper - which would not occur until much later.

    And the scripture explicitly teaches that Jesus is NOT the bread and wine literally, to be taken in perpetual sacrifice:

    “And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” - Luke 22 We are to take it to remember what Jesus did, not as part of a never-ending, perpetual sacrifice:

    “He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself.” - Hebrews 7

    “24 For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. 25 Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, 26 for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” - Hebrews 9

    Taken in context, there is no puzzle for me to solve.

    “The doctrine of John Smyth (1570-1612) has one fatal flaw...”

    Ummm...that no one in the SBC gives a rat’s rear about John Smyth? For doctrine, we prefer the Bible. And the SBC was NOT on the forefront of preaching against slavery.

    “But Executive Committee President and CEO Frank Page refused to put a positive spin on the declines, exclaiming in a news release, “God help us all! In a world that is desperate for the message of Christ, we continue to be less diligent in sharing the Good News.” “


    And as a long time Southern Baptist, this is part of the problem - WE do not convert anyone! We are responsible for reaching out. But: “8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” - John 3

    I think the Holy Spirit is drawing back his hand as America rejects God. And as a result, any bible-honoring church WILL see declines in membership. I’m an Arminiam theologically, without a Calvinist bone in my body, but no human is responsible for converting others!

    “46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, saying, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken first to you. Since you thrust it aside and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles....” - Acts 13

    If the Apostle Paul couldn’t get people to convert, then I cannot either. Nor should I try! Jesus Himself didn’t worry about numbers, so why should I?

    Ride a horse.

    You have high mobility to see the country. Sometimes too much mobility, if they hit a cactus.

    You can bond with your 15 year old daughter.

    You work up a relaxing sweat.Or not so relaxed, when your horse encounters the aforementioned cactus!

    You raise heart rate. Nothing like a bolting horse to raise the heart rate! Or one who is spinning circles on a paved road as a car is coming and not slowing down because texting is way too important for the driver to look ahead.

    You get solid leg muscles.

    And as a bonus, after your horse snots all over you, you'll need a long, hot bath to get the snot, horse hair and sweat off of you - lowering your blood sugar!

    I prefer a lever action 44 magnum, and would prefer is lever action 357 rifle if I could find one at a price I was willing to pay. Used an M4 in the military, but only on the range. Good gun, but not my style.

    I also prefer revolvers to semi-automatic pistols. Not saying they are more effective, just that I love them. Steel & wood...maybe I should try a 1911...but my 686+ gives me 7 rounds of 357 goodness.

  • Should Caster Semanya be allowed to compete as a woman? Tipped for 800m gold, she has no ovaries...

    Mr Rogers to The KG9 Kid

    “but a genuine biologically deviate man-girl. What are you gonna do?”

    Tell Caster Semanya not to compete because it isn’t fair to biological women. Tough.

    “I think the fundamental issue is this: We have a separate category for women because without it, no women would even make the Olympic Games (with the exception of equestrian). Most of the women’s world records, even doped, lie outside the top 5000 times run by men. Radcliffe’s marathon WR, for instance, is beaten by between 250 and 300 men per year. Without a women’s category, elite sport would be exclusively male.”

    That article is more sympathetic than I am, but there is no reason to have women’s sports if men can compete - and the amount of testosterone in Semanya’s body gives him too much of an advantage.

    On the other hand, the KJV deliberately mistranslated some stuff to reflect the political desires of King James.

    My SIL did two tours in Iraq in the U.S. Marine Corps Infantry. He was 6’2” before he left for his first deployment. He is 6’ 0.5” now. Damage to his shoulders, neck, brain, knees, pancreas and back.

    I was US Air Force. I was pushing 50 in Afghanistan. But the above shows what combat infantry can do to a good sized man in his prime. “Tough” doesn’t even begin to describe what it takes! I was a pretty fit 160 lbs for my age, but I couldn’t have lasted 2 days in the infantry.

    When I was leaving, I was sweating and staggering under 140 lbs of equipment I deployed with. 100 lbs in a sack on my back. A young Army guy saw me staggering and asked if he could help. I wasn’t too proud to refuse. My bifocals had too much sweat for me to see anyways. The young guy picked up the 100 lb sack with one hand and walked with me to where I would meet the helicopter. Yeah, I was grateful.

    Most people haven’t got a clue what is involved.

    “Still doesn’t explain how one can just magically know if he is in error...”

    There is no magic.

    “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.” - 1 Cor 12

    “When you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed in Him, you were also sealed with the promised Holy Spirit. He is the down payment of our inheritance, for the redemption of the possession, to the praise of His glory.” - Ephesians 1:13-14

    “You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.” - Romans 8

    “For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.” - 1 Corinthians 2

    No church and no church office can substitute for the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the true Vicar of Christ.

    Vicar: “a person who acts in place of another; substitute”.

    Jesus made it clear: “For if I did not go away, the divine helper would not come to you. But if I go, then I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convince the world of the meaning of sin, of true goodness and of judgment.”

    “So how is one person to know when he is in error?”

    “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.” - John 16:13

    For context:

    “I have not spoken like this to you before, because I have been with you; 5-11 but now the time has come for me to go away to the one who sent me. None of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ That is because you are so distressed at what I have told you. Yet I am telling you the simple truth when I assure you that it is a good thing for you that I should go away. For if I did not go away, the divine helper would not come to you. But if I go, then I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convince the world of the meaning of sin, of true goodness and of judgment. He will expose their sin because they do not believe in me; he will reveal true goodness for I am going away to the Father and you will see me no longer; and he will show them the meaning of judgment, for the spirit which rules this world will have been judged.

    12-15 “I have much more to tell you but you cannot bear it now. Yet when that one I have spoken to you about comes—the Spirit of truth—he will guide you into everything that is true. For he will not be speaking of his own accord but exactly as he hears, and he will inform you about what is to come. He will bring glory to me for he will draw on my truth and reveal it to you. Whatever the Father possesses is also mine; that is why I tell you that he will draw on my truth and will show it to you.”

    No easy answers. After all, as Peter put it:

    “This is the second letter I have written to you, dear friends of mine, and in both of them I have tried to stimulate you, as men with minds uncontaminated by error, by simply reminding you of what you really know already. For I want you to remember the words spoken of old by the holy prophets as well as the commands of our Lord and saviour given to you through his messengers...

    ...Meanwhile, consider that God’s patience is meant to be man’s salvation, as our dear brother Paul pointed out in his letter to you, written out of the wisdom God gave him. In that letter, as indeed in all his letters, he referred to these matters. There are, of course, some things which are difficult to understand, and which, unhappily, ill-informed and unbalanced people distort (as they do the other scriptures), and bring disaster on their own heads.

    17-18 But you, my friends whom I love, are forewarned, and should therefore be very careful not to be carried away by the errors of wicked men and so lose your proper foothold.” - 2 Peter 3

    Notice: Peter doesn’t say “Your Bishops will tell you what is right or wrong, and you can trust my successors, who will be the Vicar of Jesus Christ Himself!”

    Nope. No reference to clinging to “The True Church”, but instead:

    “...remember the words spoken of old by the holy prophets as well as the commands of our Lord and saviour given to you through his messengers...In that letter, as indeed in all his letters, he referred to these matters. There are, of course, some things which are difficult to understand, and which, unhappily, ill-informed and unbalanced people distort (as they do the other scriptures), and bring disaster on their own heads.”

    No church can carry you past Heaven’s portal.

    When asked, Jesus quoted scripture. Not church councils. We also have the New Testament, which wasn’t written at the time of Jesus’ ministry.

    What we never see is Jesus citing the authority of the Jewish councils or saying, “Trust the priests of Israel”! And since the New Testament had no priests other than Jesus, that may be significant. And that is the real rub - that much of Catholic theology is in contradiction to what is written.

    ” These regulations, like the Army regulation in Spock, protect a substantial Government interest unrelated to the suppression of free expression. See Procunier v. Martinez, 416 U.S. 396, 413 (1974). The military is, “by necessity, a specialized society separate from civilian society.” Parker v. Levy, 417 U.S. 733, 743 (1974). Military personnel must be ready to perform their duty whenever the occasion arises. Ibid. To ensure that they always are capable of performing their mission promptly and reliably, the military services “must insist upon a respect for duty and a discipline without counterpart in civilian life.” Schlesinger v. Councilman, 420 U.S. 738, 757 (1975); see Department of Air Force v. Rose, 425 U.S. 352, 367 -368 (1976).

    “`Speech that is protected in the civil population may . . . undermine the effectiveness of response to command.’” Parker v. Levy, supra, at 759, quoting United States v. Priest, 21 U.S.C. M. A. 564, 570, 45 C. M. R. 338, 344 (1972). Thus, while members of the military services are entitled to the protections of the First Amendment, “the different character of the military community and of the military mission requires a different application of those protections.” Parker v. Levy, 417 U.S., at 758 . The rights of military men must yield somewhat “`to meet certain overriding demands of discipline and duty. . . .’” Id., at 744, quoting Burns v. Wilson, 346 U.S. 137, 140 (1953) (plurality opinion). 10 Speech likely to interfere with these vital prerequisites for military effectiveness therefore can be excluded from a military base. Spock, [444 U.S. 348, 355] 424 U.S., at 840 ; id., at 841 (BURGER, C. J., concurring); id., at 848 (POWELL, J., concurring).”

    To repeat for emphasis:

    “The rights of military men must yield somewhat “`to meet certain overriding demands of discipline and duty. . . .’” Id., at 744, quoting Burns v. Wilson, 346 U.S. 137, 140 (1953) (plurality opinion). 10 Speech likely to interfere with these vital prerequisites for military effectiveness therefore can be excluded from a military base.”


    “In 1974 the U.S. Supreme Court wrote, “While the members of the military are not excluded from the protection granted by the First Amendment, the different character of the military community and of the military mission requires a different application of those protections. The fundamental necessity for obedience, and the consequent necessity for imposition of discipline, may render permissible within the military that which would be constitutionally impermissible outside it” Parker v. Levy, 417 U.S. 733, 758 (1974). This quote from the Court sums up what is known as the Doctrine of Military Necessity or the military-deference doctrine.

    Though it did not become entrenched in modern legal thought until the Levy case in 1974, the view of the military as a separate community, where constitutional freedoms can be applied differently, was first recognized by the Supreme Court in 1953. Ruling in Orloff v. Willoughby, 345 U.S. 83 (1953), the Court said: “The military constitutes a specialized community governed by a separate discipline from that of the civilian. Orderly government requires that the judiciary be as scrupulous not to interfere with legitimate Army matters as the Army must be scrupulous not to intervene in judicial matters.”


    “In 1986, the case reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which, in a 5-4 decision, affirmed the appeals court decision against Goldman. Justice William Rehnquist, writing the opinion for the Court, noted that Goldman argued for the Court to analyze the Air Force regulation under the standard the Court had used in an earlier, non-military related, free-exercise case. This standard required the government to show a compelling interest to justify restricting a citizen’s free-exercise right. The need to show a compelling interest involves a higher standard of scrutiny and is a more difficult standard to reach.

    Rehnquist rejected applying this standard in Goldman’s case, saying, “[W]e have repeatedly held that the military is, by necessity, a specialized society separate from civilian society. Our review of military regulations challenged on First Amendment grounds is far more deferential than constitutional review of similar laws or regulations designed for civilian society.” The Court held that the military was the best judge of whether a particular regulation was proper and that courts are “ill-equipped to determine the impact upon discipline that any particular intrusion upon military authority might have.”

    When I was in the military, a pretty common restriction was not to discuss politics or religion while on duty. Why? Because those can seriously affect morale and unit cohesion. I was in one squadron where several enlisted members believed GWB was not really elected President and that they could therefor refuse to deploy to combat.

    I’m a Baptist and generally approve of discussing religious beliefs - but not while on duty, in uniform. It just created too much bitterness and anger. But I’m only a military brat who spent 25 years on active duty, so what do I know?

    I don’t think the TV Mr Rogers was ever in combat. Nor was Trump.

    I’m not some pansy cowering before Trump’s aggressive style. I found many of his personal attacks on other candidates dishonest and repulsive, and I find his liberalism hard to deal with - I don’t like voting for someone who recently approved of Hillary, Obama and DeBlasio. Trump s very happy with a much bigger government than I want, and I can remember - back in the Bill Clinton days - when Freepers thought infidelity indicated dishonesty.

    But he isn’t Hillary. He doesn’t actively hate everything I love. He doesn’t hate America. He doesn’t like watching business chased overseas by our business-hating government, and he doesn’t want to bring in millions of freedom-hating socialists looking for handouts. He also understands that Islam is not “just a religion”, and bringing in millions of Muslims is destructive to freedom and America.

    I have low expectations for a Trump presidency. I think he’ll promote a much bigger and much more liberal government than I want. I also believe it is every patriot’s duty to get out as many votes for him as possible, because he’s running against Hillary Clinton.

    I don’t think the polls are lying. He’s under attack from the media, he has been responding badly, and a lot of Americans no longer believe in freedom or work or God. If you think Trump is a shoe-in who will sweep the vote effortlessly, you are looking at a different America and different race than what I’m seeing.

    I’m not controlled by my wife, nor a wimp. I don’t like Trump. He changes his story regularly and tosses out wild insults. He is far more liberal than I am. He likes a big government. Heck, it wasn’t too long ago that he said Hillary would be a good President, and praised Obama!

    He is not a conservative Messiah!

    I’ll vote for him because he is not Hillary. I’ll vote for him because as much as I dislike him, he at least loves America and wants America to be great, while Hillary is a demon-possessed (IMHO) shrew who hates America and wants to see the USA flushed down the toilet.

    But I don’t like Trump. And while the people I know plan to vote for him, I don’t know anyone who actually LIKES him. If Trump worshipers won’t accept the fact that a LOT of people do not LIKE Trump, then y’all will go on believing everything is peachy, Trump is on his way to a YUGE win - and we’ll have a repeat of 2012, when many of us watched with horror as Obama was elected to a second term!

    “Clinton is really repulsive, to a whole huge number of voters.”

    So is Trump.

    It is not going to be a blowout for Trump. I don’t know anyone who is going to vote for Hillary, but that just means I don’t make friends with repulsive sponges...

    Lots of FR didn’t believe the polls showing Obama winning, either. Might be prudent to assume we’re BEHIND and need to do better against an onslaught of bad media - which is NOT going to go away.

    “We can keep on giving him passes just because he’s so Yuuuuuge — or we can insist on solid answers.”

    I haven’t given him a pass on anything. But he is not Hillary, just as Romney was not Obama and GWB was not Algore. When you are going the wrong way, accelerating is not the answer - and Hillary is for accelerating!

    That would make them “FN People”, so it may not stick. I prefer “Pre-Columbus People” - PC People. But I can’t keep up with the latest non-offensive terms. I’ve pretty much concluded that a white guy is wrong no matter what he says.

    I think white guys need to start taking offense. “Who you calling ‘white’? My arms are darker than Obama’s...”

    I knew some of the guys coordinating air, and you are full of it. If they were “spared”, it was because they were being USED somewhere else, by the Army.

    About 6 months after this, I was attached to a brigade staff that moved heaven and hell to rescue 6 members of a special ops team that got in trouble. Different province, but I think you are right: “It’s the Daily Mail being overly dramatic.”

    Liberals define their morality by their political stances. This is very convenient, because you can then be a good person who VOTES to give to the poor, while you don’t actually have to GIVE any of YOUR money to the poor!

    In this case, you can simply be against innocent people being murdered, but you don’t have to trouble your little mind with thinking about HOW to achieve that end. Unlike myself, who carries so my innocent family might not be murdered...

    Mr Rogers to Theodore R.

    I’ve heard of a few deciding to leave. The only roadblock would be if they had been established as a missionary church. The church I’m part of now was established (and funded) via another SBC church 50 years ago. The deed had a restriction on it, so that if we left the SBC, the building would revert back to the church that started us. They recently asked if we would like that restriction removed from our deed, and we said yes - so they did. We have no intention of leaving the SBC, but it just seemed right after 50 years.

    I’ll add the original church that got us started has continued to be a blessing. They are still a larger church, and they have given us sheet music, electrical equipment, etc that they no longer needed and that we could not afford by ourselves.

    For our part, we’ve helped a non-SBC Baptist Church out financially and with equipment as they have struggled to get established. We all fall under the same Lord and Master...

    “Doesn’t the SBC have the same stranglehold on Southern Baptist churches?”

    Not even close. A church that is part of the SBC can leave at any time. And each church buys and pays for its own buildings and land.

    Years ago - decades, even - I was told that alcohol was the basis for the profits of the clubs. Once the clubs became places where drinking got you in trouble, no one wanted to go.

    And of course, in the 80s, membership in the “O Club” was pretty much mandatory. I refused at one base and got a chance to be interviewed by the Wing Commander over it. Still refused...

    They would prefer 30+ years of The Clinton Court, with the SCOTUS citing DNC press releases in their decisions. And they get their panties in a wad if you point it out.

    They’ve hired too many of what Clint Eastwood calls “The Pussy Generation”!

    I was banned from commenting at NRO a couple of months ago. My final, outrageous post? ‘Guess it really is down to Trump or Hillary. Time to choose.’

    But it came on a day when they banned a huge number of people defending Trump, and they have continued their slide into #HillaryOK or whatever it is they do. I remember in the 80s when I was excited to get the latest National Review in the mail. I haven’t changed, but they sure have!
