      I get a flu vaccination every year. I have no kind words for those who reject vaccinations for "religious reasons", as their "reason" is false. After all, JESUS performed many cures by His power, & likely kept the disciples healthy by His power as well, a virtual vaccination.

    I'm sorry, but I would have to disagree with you here. Not about getting the vaccine, which is up to the individual, but about "no kind words" for those who "for religious reason" won't get them. Their reasons for NOT getting vaccines are just as valid as your reasons FOR getting them. Were you not the one who said earlier, "Each, according to the dictates of one's own conscience"? The two postings do not match...

    And I gotta say - comparing Jesus' - the Creator of the universe- healings to manmade vaccinations? Nah. Just nah.

  2. I didn't make it past the second line. I'm so tired of people who think they know things they don't. This man, whomever he is, has no idea who the Proud Boys are. Nazis? Traitors? Hogwash. Some people need to stop swallowing all the garbage the MSM spews.

    IMHO that is no excuse to lower yourself to gutter comments. I did not consider it a silly answer. Just a nasty comment, the type that has become far too often used in our society. It is not a Christ-like reply in any sense of the word.

    I think you need to re-learn the definition of "gutter comments." There was nothing about the gutter in his comment (other than the sad fact that our Congress is putting us there with their ridiculous "rules" about not calling anyone father, mother, sister, daughter, son)...and as was pointed out by myself and another - it was IN THE EXACT SAME VEIN AS YOUR OPENING COMMENT. You have taken something that could have been enjoyable and fun and made it, yet again, a test about your superior spirituality.

    Again, if you don't want those kinds of comments, stop making them yourself. And I would think quoting Christ about light - since He is the TRUE Light, would be more apropos for someone who is trying to make it seem that silly comments are not Christ-like.

    I'm not going to continue going back and forth with you about this. Just stop. There was no more wrong with his comment than there was with yours. Let's move on and go about our day for the Lord.

    No evidence???? Evidently you had your head in the sand when his PowerPoint showed ballots with no bar code and the bull's eye obviously off center. And his testimony regarding the original ballots mysteriously disappearing is spot on. Those ballots are supposed to be kept available for 22 months by law. This is so they can be physically examined in case of irregularities; but now they are unavailable? Certainly nothing irregular about that.

    I don't think that there is any evidence that anyone in the world could produce that would convince you that there was fraud in this election process. But that is okay, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, even if it is wrong.

    Jim, this is the mantra of the left...and, sadly, among many on the right as well as Christians. "la,la,la,la" with blindfolds on as evidence is presented..."I don't see any proof..." sigh

    I really do not think being nasty is a good thing on this board. I would hate to see this discussion board sink to the level of some I could mention. 

    Considering that Nancy's the one pushing for banning the usage of words like father in favor of those he listed, his answer was quite as funny as your OP. I really do not think you need to rebuke him for it...unless, of course, you want someone to rebuke you for being nasty and comparing the brains of congress to 6th graders? If you don't want silly answers to your jokes/silly thoughts, don't post 'em. 😉

  6. It seems that since this virus has become known (notice I did not say since it's been here...because it was here before the "experts" claim), there is no other way of dying. No other sickness. In fact, pharmacists have been saying that they are no longer selling tamiflu...apparently flu and colds no longer exist. It's a miracle! Not really - that was sarcasm, for the folks who don't know. 😉 

    However, covid has taken over the airwaves and the minds of many. To the exclusion of all else. Gunshot deaths are labeled covid - because $$. By far too many other deaths are labeled at least covid-related - again because $ (states get money from the feds for it, doncha know).

    Now, the virus is real. As real as any other virus that's been around. I personally believe it's a man-made virus, but will not argue the point with others because WHERE it came from is not really as important as the fact that it IS. However, viruses have been with us since the fall of man brought a curse to our bodies. And viruses act like, well, viruses. They spread. They infect. They morph. They die out. They return. And so forth. AND THERE ARE WAYS TO AVOID GETTING VIRUSES. 

    But here's something that gets me: so-called Christians (and beyond Christians, so-called "decent" human beings) spend more time worrying about covid, masking, anti-social distancing, hand-washing (really - we needed government to tell us to wash our hands...I don't think so), etc., than what I'm about to post. And that would be ABORTION. Abortion is murder. It is the act of targeting a life GOD CREATED with the willful decision to END that life. It is purposeful. It is intended. It is egregious. Unlike a virus, it can be stopped. But folks are more worried about people wearing masks than they are about people murdering the innocent.  THE VICTIMS OF ABORTIONS HAVE NO WAY OF STOPPING THEM.

    The article that I'm linking below is not anti-covid, so don't think that it's some religious nut that has an ax to grind. But please read the article. And then please put into perspective the fact that we have allowed government to just about kill our economy, to imprison us at their whim, to garner even more authority over us, to set us against each other because some folks can't agree to disagree...ALL WHILE BABIES WERE/ARE BEING MURDERED. And then, dear Christian, tell me which issue should have more of your attention and angst?

    https://www.westernjournal.com/take-covid-23-years-kill-many-people-abortion-killed-2020-alone/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-CT&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=conservative-tribune&ats_es=61dcc72f149a7c1617abed9bbca4caf1&fbclid=IwAR3a-qHyZKZOSuUdKNf3JmWyHtippgnqE0SRxdkZMyUyezoelNTHhfl1Np4

    "“According to WHO, every year in the world there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day,” Worldometers states.

    "The numbers are just as grim in the United States, where Worldometers notes “nearly half of pregnancies are unintended and four in 10 of these are terminated by abortion.”

    Here, over 3,000 unborn children are killed a day on average. That’s over 1 million deaths a year. And yet, not a peep from the mainstream media.

    Why do these numbers not shock us?

    The psychic toll of COVID-19 has to do with a corporeal, sudden sense of loss. We lived with these people, broke bread with them, worked with them, were married to them. We were their fathers, their children, their neighbors. We had vacation photos with them. We commented on their Facebook posts and went back and forth with them on iMessage. Then, just like that, they were gone.

    The psychic toll of abortion is mostly invisible in part because we’ve made the deaths invisible...

    We don’t see the toll this takes. We don’t see the unborn children who were never able to become someone’s husband or wife. We sweep out of sight the lives they would have led, the loves they would have had, the memories they would have left behind. We don’t see the pain caused to the children killed as we shift the goalposts on abortion, allowing us to end their lives later. We barely talk about the psychic toll this takes on mothers who aborted their children, which the mainstream culture pretends doesn’t exist.

    In the United States, we grieve the loss of 350,000 lives from COVID-19. Worldwide, that number is 1.8 million. Let no word I have written minimize the enormity of that loss. However, we must question what kind of world we live in when it would take 23 years of deaths from COVID-19 like we saw in 2020 to equal the number of children killed by abortion that same year."

     

    TWENTY-THREE YEARS of Covid deaths to equal ONE YEAR of abortions. Yeah, I think our focus is on the wrong thing.

    If vaccine failures belong in another thread, why did you bring the topic up? You said:

    "And there have been vaccines that have failed some causing a worse strain of the disease." So, what failures are you speaking about?

    That was not me and I will not say again to move it to another thread. End of discussion about the efficacy of vaccines in this thread. 

  8. We don't agree with the vaccine, and do believe there are ways to protect oneself from a variety of viruses, not just covid - Vit. C, Vit. D3 (studies are showing that the majority of people who contracted covid were D deficient), tonic water, zinc. That is us, though.

    But here's the thing, robycop: You and your wife are the only ones who can decide what you should do. If, after prayer, you believe you should stay home, then that is what you need to do. If your pastor, after prayer, decides God would have him go to online services, then that is what he should do. I know of churches that do this, and the pastor even goes online at various times during the week just to post an encouraging thought. Sometimes their wives will do a short devotion for the women of their congregation as well. When we closed the first two weeks, I did videos for Sunday School (we did have online services as well).

    Liberty is a beautiful thing. While a couple of people have tried to shame those who do not wear masks, there is still choice. God will lead each individual, and not necessarily all the same way. That doesn't mean one is smarter or more spiritual than another.

    I've known you long enough online here to believe you and your wife will follow God's leading. Be safe and stay healthy!

  9. It's arriving here in WA on Tuesday. Poor people who are foolish enough to take it. 😞 Employers have been given the green light to mandate it. It's not enough that our governor is destroying our economy by shutting things down; now employers will be firing people who won't allow themselves to be jabbed with something questionable. People have just gone nuts.

  10. This article could actually have it's own thread. But because of the plethora of threads already started, I will place it here. I apologize that it does not seem to have to do with the SCOTUS ruling, but it likely does: I kinda think this senator waited until the SCOTUS announcement re: TX to announce this hearing. AND to say that he will not rule out joining a challenge in the joint congressional meeting on Jan 6. I told you it's not over yet.

    https://thefederalistpapers.org/us/sen-ron-johnson-calls-first-senate-hearing-alleged-irregularities-2020-election?fbclid=IwAR11UDBNQQYJFwFMEaQk1_rNmlkMkhW6D6Aw4ao4PL6TqYhc-7zOfg3o9gI

     

    "Although Election Day was more than a month ago, questions about the validity of the 2020 presidential election still hang heavy in the air.

    For this reason, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has set a hearing for Wednesday to get to the bottom of some of what its chairman, Sen. Ron Johnson, has called “irregularities.”

    In his statement announcing the hearing, the Wisconsin Republican said he was “mindful that many of the issues that have been raised have been, and will continue to be, appropriately resolved in the courts.”

    However, he noted that “apparent irregularities that have not been fully examined” leave many Americans skeptical of the election results.

    “That is not a sustainable state of affairs for our country,” Johnson said. “The only way to resolve suspicions is with full transparency and public awareness. That will be the goal of the hearing.”

    Regardless of whether there were irregularities or they had any material impact on the overall outcome, it would seem politicians on both sides of the aisle would support such a hearing.

    Instead, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has urged Republicans to shut it down, according to Politico.

    “When is this nonsense detrimental to our democracy going to end?” the New York Democrat whined from the Senate floor Thursday. “To use a Senate committee to spread misinformation about our own elections, it’s beyond the pale.”

    Schumer called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to muzzle Johnson and stop President Donald Trump from challenging the election results over alleged voter fraud and irregularities.

    All 50 states have certified their votes, and the Electoral College is expected to meet Monday to cast ballots that will make former Vice President Joe Biden the president-elect.

    Despite all of the bloviating from the left about Trump just being a sore loser, there are serious allegations that haven’t been completely vetted yet.

    There were the “suitcases” full of votes in Georgia and sworn affidavits about hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots vanishing, not to mention the simple logical problem of how Republicans managed to thwart the “blue wave” and flip several seats in the House of Representatives while still losing the presidency.

    In addition, 18 states have signed on to a Texas lawsuit challenging the election results on the basis that other states’ irregularities and fraud hindered the ability to hold a free national election.

    None of this means that these allegations are true or that they would have even had a major impact on election results, but they deserve the proper serious scrutiny and resolution, one way or another.

    According to a tweet from CNN’s Manu Raju with Johnson’s statement, the senator “told reporters he wouldn’t rule out joining an effort to challenge a state’s results when Congress meets in a joint session on January 6. ‘It depends on what we find out,’ he said.”

    Overturning a national election doesn’t seem like a realistic remedy at this point, but there’s no reason to ignore these serious allegations anyway, especially since there were factors such as unprecedented numbers of mail-in ballots and historic voter turnout.

    Johnson has it right that Americans need a full postmortem on this election in order to accept the results and move on.

    If there was no fraud or other problems with the election, what do Schumer and the Democrats have to be afraid of?"

    I will reiterate the final question: if there was no fraud, WHAT DO THE DEMS FEAR? A full look at everything would PROVE no fraud, if that were the case. 

  11. Not gonna wear a mask. Not gonna get a vaccine. Gonna keep properly informed and not swallow the lies MSM is propagating about this entire nonsense. Gonna keep praying for those who actually get covid, the flu, colds, cancer, pneumonia, etc. 

    This whole thing is ridiculous. Like nobody has died since the beginning of the world until covid came along. Good grief. Numbers are STILL lower than the flu.

    We don't usually limit content on threads if it's in line with board rules, but I for one am getting heartily tired of all the posts about covid and the fraudulent "win" of marxist Joe.

    THERE IS LIFE OUTSIDE OF COVID AND POLITICS. 

  12. They only denied part of it. But there are two more cases being brought before them (which is actually a different procedure than the referenced case in the OP). Six states are together in a case, and Texas has started one...with at least 17 states signed on to it. And Trump has asked Cruz to go before SCOTUS regarding it. This isn't Cruz' first rodeo with SCOTUS, so...

    Like I said in all of the other threads: it ain't over til it's over. My guess is that if SCOTUS hears the cases, they'll bump things to the House. But we'll see.

  13. Justice Alito moved his deadline up a day so that it would be within the "safe harbor" time regarding electors. That sends a signal that SCOTUS will be involved. That is the direction all of this has been heading anyway. (regarding the video that has been questioned: it is a State Farm Arena security video...provided to the Trump legal team by the arena people).

    IMO, this entire fraud thing has two goals in mind, and the progressives are willing to take either or both: 1. A Harris "presidency" in which Marxism will be unleashed on this land like nobody ever dreamed of, or, 2. A destruction of our electoral college, throwing us into a full-blown democracy, thus ushering in Marxism. Either way a lose-lose situation for the US.

  14. I'm late to the party here, but I've posted in other threads that The Epoch Times is good as well. https://www.theepochtimes.com/

    This is their description:

    "The Epoch Times is the fastest-growing independent news media in America. We are nonpartisan and dedicated to truthful reporting.

    We are free from the influence of any government, corporation, or political party—this is what makes us different from other media organizations. Our goal is to bring our readers accurate information so they can form their own opinions about the most significant topics of our time.

    We don’t follow the unhealthy trend of agenda-driven journalism prevalent in today’s media environment.

    Instead, we use our principles of Truth and Tradition as our guiding light. We highlight in our reporting the best of humanity, the valuable lessons of history, and traditions that are beneficial for society.

    The Epoch Times was founded in the United States in the year 2000 in response to communist repression and censorship in China. Our founders, Chinese-Americans who themselves had fled communism, sought to create an independent media to bring the world uncensored and truthful information.

    The Epoch Times has received numerous awards for our reporting and design, including from the New York Press Association, the Society of Professional Journalists, and the Society for News Design.

    The Epoch Times’ media network currently covers 21 languages and 33 countries."

    I thought their founding info would interest you, @Alan

    There is no proof of any of these charges. That is why the courts are throwing them out. Trump's lawyers are not even alleging fraud in their arguments. As one of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court judges aid, "“They have failed to allege that even a single mail-in ballot was fraudulently cast or counted,” justice David Wecht wrote in a concurring opinion.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/29/pennsylvania-supreme-court-throws-out-republican-bid-to-reject-25m-mail-in-votes

    You are right, SCOTUS, will probably not even take up the case for obvious reasons. 

     

    Do not put words in my mouth. I DID NOT say SCOTUS would probably not take up the case. I said they would not decide when there is no evidence.  You continue to listen to mainstream media and that is where you are getting your "information." I think you might be in for a surprise. But we'll see. I'm gonna bow out of this conversation now because it just keeps going round and round saying basically the same thing. The fact remains that this election is not over yet. Regardless of what the MSM is spewing.

    How can you continue to believe there was widespread fraud when it was Republican controlled states that made the difference in this election. I am genuinely curious about this, not arguing.  Let's look at the list;

    • Arizona
    • Georgia
    • Pennsylvania
    • Michigan
    • Wisconsin

    Surely you do not believe these Republican controlled states would not have challenged the results if there had been widespread fraud?

    Also Federal judges appointed by Trump have thrown cases out, often with caustic remarks about no evidence. 

    If the Supreme Court rules without evidence, they everyone of every persuasion is in serous trouble. We are a country of law and if we abandon that then our future is very bleak.

    Facts are nasty things sometimes and hard to swallow. 

    You do realize that the democrats can cheat in any state, right? I don't understand how you can believe that there isn't fraud. MI and PA have vile, evil governors...dems...so, no, they aren't GOP controlled. Both of those governors have joined the ranks of petty tyrants. The problem, though, is that it doesn't have to matter who "controls" the state (really, WE the PEOPLE are supposed to); what matters is if cheaters can get away with it. And at this point, they are because  the average citizen has allowed themselves to be hoodwinked into believing that Joe - the pedo wannabe - and Kamala - the one NOBODY but people like Soros wanted - actually got the number of votes they are claiming. Did.Not.Happen.

    1.8 million mail in ballots sent out in PA. 2.5 million counted. Even you have to admit those numbers simply don't add up. 

    Where in the world did you get the idea that SCOTUS would rule without evidence? JUST BECAUSE a judge throws something out with a caustic remark doesn't make them correct, regardless of who appointed them (let's all remember that a GOP POTUS appointed left-leaning [more and more as days go by] Roberts). Several of the justices on SCOTUS appointed by GOP POTUS' have severely disappointed constitutionalists. So there is no guarantee that, just because a judge is appointed by a particular POTUS, they will always rule in favor of him/her.

    Yes, facts are nasty things. And sometimes it's hard for people to admit the fact that they've allowed themselves to be hoodwinked by the lying media.
