Hiram

Hiram,

I want to apologize to you.  Apparently I had my blogger settings at their default positions, which only allows people with blogger accounts to comment.  This was inadvertent, and I apologize.  

The reason I started this blog was because I was discriminated against for not having a blogger account by a so called supporter of inclusiveness and tolerance.   I didn’t intend to have this be that place.

But I’ve changed that.  I’m open to everyone.  

Welcome.

Just another random quote.

“What a mess pride makes when it creeps into our Bible reading. Arrogance in reading mutes an author before he starts talking. It is rude to do it to human writers, and fatal to do it to God.”

Would that this was our prayer

Father, we call Thee Father because we love Thee. We are glad to be called Thy children, and to dedicate our lives to the service that extends through willing hearts and hands to the betterment of all mankind [humankind]. We send a cry of Thanksgiving for people of all races, creeds, classes, and colors the world over, and pray that through the instrumentality of our lives the spirit of peace, joy, fellowship, and brotherhood [personhood] shall circle the world. We know that this world is filled with discordant notes, but help us, Father, to so unite our efforts that we may all join in one harmonious symphony for peace and brotherhood [personhood], justice, and equality of opportunity for all men [people]. The tasks performed today with forgiveness for all our errors, we dedicate, dear Lord, to Thee. Grant us strength and courage and faith and humility sufficient for the tasks assigned to us.

Misdemeanors

I’ve seen multiple people argue that crossing the border (once) without going through the process is a misdemeanor, and that it’s not a crime.  

Yet, when it comes to the actions of those we disagree with politically, all of a solution Deb conviction for a misdemeanor makes one a “criminal”

“ I will, however, cite an article about how he was convicted of placing a GPS tracer on his wife's car (a misdemeanor, but creepy-sounding, at the very least) and note that here is another instance of the GOP running a criminal””

A misdemeanor is either a crime, or it’s not, please pick one standard and stick with it.

What would it look like?

Jesus tells us to “Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”.

If we actually tried to live this out, what would blogging and social media look like?

I’ll admit that blessing certain folk isn’t my first reaction, but what if it was?

I’m not going to argue with him.

“The truth is that there is no black race-and there is no white race.   So the idea of “racial reconciliation” is a false idea.  It implies that there is more than one race. This is absolutely false.  God created only one race-the human race.”

Curious

If a city government engages in the the same types of racist behavior over a long period of time, isn't there a point where you might think that electing members of the same political party over and over again would be a bad idea?  Or, that it might be reasonable to assign some level of responsibility or blame tho the political party that has been in power for decades?
