  • A Troubling Question About Jesus' Teaching: Should we love our enemies even during a time of war?

    Christian Post ^ | 04/21/2022 | Dr. Michael Brown
    Recently, some Christians in Ukraine came under fire for putting up billboards in their city with verses from the Bible, one of which quoted the words of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount where He called us to love our enemies (see Matthew 5:43-48). As a result, these Christians have been branded separatists and traitors, with some calling for their church to be investigated. But was Jesus referring to situations like this when He called us to love our enemies? Are we to love those who ruthlessly bomb our families? Are we to love those who rape our women...
  • Clyburn: Trump, People Who ‘Showed Up’ on January 6 Are ‘Domestic Enemies’

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump and those who “showed up” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 were “domestic enemies.” Clyburn said, “We just got around the filibuster to raise the debt limit. Why? Because we don’t want to put the full faith and credit of the United States at risk.”

    LIVERPOOL, England, Dec 12 (Reuters) - While Russian President Vladimir Putin keeps the West guessing over Ukraine, it was the might of Chinese President Xi Jinping that garnered the long-term strategic focus when the diplomats from the Group of Seven richest democracies met this weekend. The United States and its other G7 allies are searching for a coherent response to Xi's growing assertiveness after China’s spectacular economic and military rise over the past 40 years.

    The United Kingdom's Prince Charles called for "a vast military-style campaign to combat climate change" as he opened the COP26 summit in Glasgow. "If we were to bomb refineries, oil wells, coal mines, and nuclear power plants we'd 'break the backs' of our chief environmental enemies and restore life to the cleaner pre-industrial age we carelessly tossed aside in a faulty quest to uplift commoners to lifestyles they were never meant to have." "Let me remind everyone what smashing job our air forces did in flattening the Third Reich during the 1940s," the Prince boasted. "Civilized values prevailed over Nazi...

    They may look like America – but they don’t think like Americans. This article originally appeared in Formally introducing his cabinet to the public, Joe Biden proudly declared: “This is the first [time] in American history that the Cabinet looks like America.” Looking at the actual appointments and not just the gender, skin color and ethnic origins of the Biden team, it is a team that may look like America but doesn’t think like America. In fact, it is a team whose outlook is anti-American. Take Biden’s Vice Presidential choice, Kamala Harris, whose antipathy for America oozes from her...

    Frustrated that he was unable to prevent President Trump from holding a campaign rally in Minneapolis, Mayor Jacob Frey took action to bar porta-potties from being set up outside the arena for use by the overflow crowd or those there to demonstrate against Trump. “The provision of portable toilets is the very definition of treason in the US Constitution,” Frey contended. “And I quote…Treason against the United States, shall consist of giving enemies aid and comfort. The whole purpose of these facilities is to give aid and comfort. In fact, they are also known as ‘comfort stations.’ Since Trump and...

Both men have been linked to Giuliani’s efforts to conduct investigations in Ukraine." “Parnas and Fruman, who had no significant prior history of political donations, sought to advance their personal financial interests and the political interests of at least one Ukrainian government official with whom they were working,” the indictment says."

    Ancient Faith Ministries ^ | September 12, 2019 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    My thoughts have been drawn to this topic any number of times in the past few days. As we near the anniversary of the tragic events of 911, I see plaintive postings of that day saying, “Never forget” (or words to that effect). The Orthodox faith teaches us that the remembrance of the departed should be eternal (“Memory Eternal,” is our prayer). I suspect that what is being urged, however, is not the remembrance of those who have died, but remembrance of the great evil that was done. There have been over 250,000 civilian deaths in America’s military actions since...

    While being inducted into the Pentagon’s Hall of Heroes, new Medal of Honor recipient Army Staff Sgt. David Bellavia issued a warning to anyone who might want to go toe-to-toe with the U.S. “They may be watching this right now,” Bellavia said. “Our military should not be mistaken for a cable news gabfest show. We don’t care what you look like. We don’t care who your voted for, who you worship, what you worship, who you love. It doesn’t matter if your dad left you millions when he died or if you knew who your father was.” “We have been...
  • Political Enemies: From Distance to Dialogue

    06/24/2019 3:00:41 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | June 24, 2019 | Terry Paulson
    This is my second column in a series generated from my TEDx Talk, "How to Make an Enemy and How to Turn Them Around" focusing on how we can turn difficult relationships from distance to dialogue in an increasingly polarized world. Reportedly, Abraham Lincoln came upon a conversation with three politicians talking about a man they disliked. He listened for a minute, and then said, "I don't like that man. I'm going to have to get to know him better." One entry in a politician's diary captured his enduring wisdom. Relationships are like personal "bank" deposit systems. Every positive experience...

    The response to my new TEDx Talk, "How to Make an Enemy and How to Turn Them Around," shows how unresolved conflict is in our divided country. This is the first of a two-part column on how we make enemies and how we can turn such relationships around.All at times can find themselves in a strained relationship. Maybe it starts with an initial conflict, a personal attack, a political disagreement, or an unresolved issue. Poorly handled, it can turn into an "enemy" relationship that saps our energy and limits our influence.Many may feel like getting even but seeking revenge often...
  • Mueller Team Leaks: It’s All About “Obstruction”… This is Going to be Epic

     (snip)--- Media: But you attacked Ben Carson! “…  Trump: Well, I never hit my mother on the head with a hammer! Did you, Bill?” _____________ When you compare how Trump owns the so-called “negatives”, you immediately recognize they are only negatives if he allows them to be. Thus, he doesn’t let them be issues – he owns them, and says “yeah, so?” Trump has spent decades with Park Row media types. He has never avoided them, he totally understands how they operate – and more importantly “why”? Pelosi and Mueller’s team think they’ve got him surrounded with Mueller’s...

    As media allies idealize House speaker Nancy Pelosi and her congressional Democrats "shaping the future" on the cover of Rolling Stone, the reality in the Democrat-led Congress is quite a bit uglier. Roll Call reports that Democrats are in the midst of internecine warfare, fighting among themselves over the merest of legislative procedural moves called "motion to recommit," which permits dissenting voices to say something or maybe try to persuade for moderating amendments when extremely radical bills are presented in the House and headed to a vote. If nothing else, it's a desire to be heard. House minority Republicans use...
