No matter how many times you hear it, there's no such thing as hate crime. How a bad guy feels or what he is thinking while committing a crime cannot be known. At best, hate crime is a more self-justifying way of saying thought crime.
John UK wrote: Doc, I am not saying it is an easy one to answer, but I have to ask, If God loves the whole world, why does Jesus limit his intercessory prayers? John 17:9 KJV (9)Ā I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. ---
John, a minor observation. In John 17:9, this particular prayer at that moment in time is for the eleven. John 17:12 is fair evidence. It isn't until 17:20 that Jesus prays for others, those being the ones who would believe in him through hearing the word brought to them by the ones he was praying for in v9.
Jim Lincoln wrote: --- If Franklin Graham is going to be a moralist, why doesn't he come out as stridently against adultery, greed, and lying? Doesn't bring in the big bucks?
So it's strident to say marriage is between a man and a woman? Nice try, but where are the adulterers, the greedy, and the liars trying to keep him from speaking publicly? Deception is not your strong point, Jim.

Well, unless they improve Medicaid Have they accounted for the expenses of giving birth? They do have to make giving birth affordable for poor women, for example.
How does being poor prevent women from knowing how not to get pregnant?

It's good to know you would never vote for Bill Clinton again. If I were a Republican, my conscience wouldn't let me vote for Weld.

There is no such animal as āirresistible grace.ā You have to eliminate or twist way too much scripture to make any sense out of that.
Remember some feel the words of the US Constitution are pliable, and therefore form a "living document" more suitable for wanting it to say what it doesn't say. In a similar way... . Well, you know.

But, as is usually the case with these online debates, direct challenges are sidestepped and the next point in their list is presented instead.
No one whined when Obama gave out more Presidential Medals of Freedom than any other president, Jim. Or when he gave them to Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Ellen DeGeneris, Michael Jordan, Bruce Springsteen, etc. Now there's some that have contributed to the nation, and deserve the nation's highest civilian honor, don't you think?

In what way does the existence of sickness demonstrate health is a human right?

No, but if he doesn't repent, he will.
Joel, socialists don't smile because they are basically miserable people whose fondest wish is that everyone else be as miserable as they are.
