John MacArthur wrote: .... Jesus' earthly ministry took place right in the midst of that difficult social and political atmosphere. Many of His followers, including the Twelve, to varying degrees expected Him to free them from Rome's oppressive rule. But our Lord did not come as a political deliverer or social reformer. He never issued a call for such changes, even by peaceful means. Unlike many late twentieth-century evangelicals, Jesus did not rally supporters to some grandiose attempt to "capture the culture" for biblical morality or greater political and religious freedoms....

1 Corinthians 5:11-12
11. But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler--not even to eat with such a one. 12. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?
Jos. D. Harder wrote: ....The views of Gladdenâalong with those of men like Walter Rauschenbusch, Josiah Strong, and Charles Sheldonâwould eventually become known as the âSocial Gospel.â Leaders of this movement believed that Christianity ought to be a powerful force for social reform.
To Gladden, the revivalist [Billy] Sundayâs message of individual salvation from eternal damnation was simplistic, a caricature of Scriptural teaching, and when Sunday came to Columbus in 1912 for a series of revival meetings Gladden sharply criticized him and his techniques. A debate erupted in the cityâs religious press. Sundayâwho defended Christian charity and generosityânevertheless charged that leaders like Gladden were âtrying to make a religion out of social service with Jesus Christ left out.â For Sunday, the Social Gospel had too much âsocialâ and not enough âgospel.â âWeâve had enough of this godless social service nonsense,â he said. The road to the kingdom of God is not by the bathtub, or the gymnasium, or the university, but by the âblood red hand of the cross of Christ.â...

Well, this article gave the rationale for various actions of the left-wing protesters, personally, I don't think the reasons were good enough for their destructive actions.
It looks like the Portland Police have to be commended on handling both the left-wing and right-wing types apparently with little bodily or no injury to themselves or the protesters. Also keeping the right-wing types out of trouble also.

...I am clear-eyed that this fight goes on beyond our state's borders,...Draconian laws that unconstitutionally restrict or outright abolish abortion make us less safe, not more, and the disinformation campaigns that warp the facts and denigrate women who choose to terminate a pregnancy are shameless.
excerpt from, "Sixty-three prosecutors pledge not to criminalize abortion even if Roe v. Wade isÂ overturned"
"First even if Donald Trump wins in November 3 and the Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade, not a great deal will change. Gallup poll after Gallup poll shows that about 75% of the American people want abortion to be legal (although, fortunately, a majority also want some restrictions). So when the individual states recover the right to write the laws on abortion, abortion will be legal for most Americans."

No, Mike, pregnancy isn't the disease except when various medical problems come up with it. It's much more safer and cheaper to have an abortion then the carry so if I pregnancy. Do you want people to carry out their pregnancies?
T. J. Reid wrote: Increasing health-care coverage is one of the most powerful tools for reducing the number of abortions -- a fact proved by years of experience in other industrialized nations. All the other advanced, free-market democracies provide health-care coverage for everybody. And all of them have lower rates of abortion than does the United States....
In Britain, only 8 percent of the population is Catholic (compared with 25 percent in the United States). Abortion there is legal. Abortion is free. And yet British women have fewer abortions than Americans do. I asked Cardinal Hume why that is. "The cardinal said that there were several reasons but that one important explanation was Britain's universal health-care system. "If that frightened, unemployed 19-year-old knows that she and her child will have access to medical care whenever it's needed," Hume explained, "she's more likely to carry the baby to term. Isn't it obvious?" https://tinyurl.com/yju7mpb (Universal health care tends to cut the abortion rate) :al

Why should I or anyone trust anything being shared? No one with expertise in epidemiology was curating the information. Skepticism about the virus and support for Trump were the necessary criteria for speakers at this event. The speakers said they wanted freedom to worship Jesus, but what really came through was their desire to hold indoor political rallies in the name of religion.

As Ruth Bader Ginsberg pointed out,
âIt is essential to womanâs equality with man that she be the decisionmaker, that her choice be controlling,â GinsburgÂ toldÂ Senators during her four days of questioning by the Senate Judiciary Committee. âIf you impose restraints that impede her choice, you are disadvantaging her because of her sex.â
Ruth wasn't my favorite Supreme Court Justices, but she was against pushing Catholic ideas on abortion onto Jews.

I have little trouble with science because what scientist say has to be verifiable. Actually some of our leading politicians, are somewhat in the same way except if you take the opposite what they mean, then you know that's correct.
Now, that has been verifiable also, and it is, by such sources as the Washington Post.
John UK wrote: Roman Catholics would do well to get back to the Geneva Bible or the Authorized Version. Either will help them to see how their leaders have spun them a yarn for so many years. The answers are always in the Bible. The trick is to know where the real Bible is.
Why, John, everyone knows the Vulgate Bible is the only true Bibleâ It uses God's language, Latin. All the newfangled versions, especially the KJV, are heretical corruptions
Remember, adriel, The Vulgate has been around for 1500 years,
So I need new upstart version such as the KJV, which is a corruption of God's Word. Well, you might be able to tolerate the Wycliffe version.
If I remember correctly, Dr. Rugh had very little use for gender-neutral terminology in any Bible version, especially since it wasn't there in the beginning âđ
It looks like this sermon will go into greater detail about the above problem?
Dr. Rugh wrote: The Word of God reveals that God is sovereign over His creation. The creation account as given in His Word and the references thereafter to the creation account clearly indicate that it is to be taken literally and historically as truth recorded by God through His chosen writers. God originally created man as male and female, Himself using the term âmanâ for both. The Word of God is clear in presenting a complementarian view of men and women having created them spiritually equal but not the same. Both male and female were given dominion over creation with gender specifics given for roles and responsibilities for each. Man is to lead and woman is divinely designed to be his helper as they do the work of God according to the revealed will of God.
