Thanks, Neil, you are illustrating how un-Christian the US society is. The Bible clearly teaches people to work with their hands, but I doubt you will hear any sermons on this, nor any church-sponsored events that promote the trades.
I am thinking of that guy Mike Rowe who does encourage the trades with is program, which is not overtly Christian. His show is about him trying on different jobs, which some could say is more about his own vanity than anything biblical.
Instead, there should be a Trades Conference sponsored by some large church or denomination to give dignity and honor to the trades.
And, maybe another conference would be of all the college grads, now in their late 20s and 30s, working for low pay in restaurant jobs. In fact, fast food restaurants that seem to have 'help needed' signs in their windows should have a subtitle to those signs, 'college degree not needed.'
And, this is still another case where churches and many who call themselves Christians can go on and on about End Times, Replacement Theology, etc, but can they give the biblical rules for dealing with widows? what women should do with their lives? I Timothy 5 gives the guidelines, who teaches that?

I have been watching NHK Newsroom Tokyo online for months and have never seen this story appear; I wonder why, since they are not favorable to any religious group.
I think Japan has the lowest percentage of Christians of any of the developed countries of the world. Yet they have their own form of religion and follow a lot of strange ceremonies and holidays. In fact, Monday July 15 was their Holiday of the Seas, where they give thanks to the seas for all they get from them (including whales, which they just started to fish again). I think they consider themselves to be superior to all other Asian countries, much smarter than them, etc. But, if they are so smart, why is their population disappearing? Every year there are less Japanese around, and they have problems staffing stores and living in small towns (they are very tight on immigration).

Watch this issue to be a big one in 2020, whoever the Socialist Democrat Party candidate is for President. Anyone can figure it out that there are a lot of young people with big student loan debts, esp. the grad students, who will be a big help for the Party's efforts to win. Their turnout will be very different this time, just like the media coverage of the President's efforts. You will see photos in your newspaper of a 100 people gathered at a Socialist Democrat Party event, while you won't hear anything when a thousand or ten thousand show up to hear President Trump speak (just ask yourself, how did they cover the event in Orlando?).

I've always said Britain is a different world than the US. I'm not even sure any lessons can be learned from it, since our cultures are so different.
The role of the Anglican Church in their govt, where the Prime Minister gets to name the head of the Church is one very big difference.
We could also compare European countries that still maintain a National church (like Lutherans in Sweden, Norway, etc). I think they also have faced a drop in the number of Christians.
In the US, it does seem like the most vocal Christians are not out there talking about their experiences with God, but protesting some political issue, like the Chick-fil-A issue noted in a news item here the other day.
So it seems that being a Christian means a person with boxing gloves on, ready to go at it on some key issues like abortion, sodomites, etc.
I think a lot of that is because churches do not teach the whole Bible. For example, the clear teachings of Paul in his first letter to Timothy, chapter 5, are not being taught or paid attention to. It teaches churches to help widows over 60 who do not have families to help them (and that means families who have widows over 60 need to take care of them and not be leaning on the church (or govt) to take care of them).

THanks, John UK, that reminds me of another weakness in the Christian dispensationalist position on Israel: if the country has only existed since 1948, then how did God bless the good ol' US of A from its founding?
And, by the way, I hope you had a pleasant 4th of July celebration!

Before we reach the 500th comment mark (that's the standard here for every news story at SA that mentions the Graham family--well, maybe not for Graham crackers), I would like to say this:
HR 5 is a problem and Christians need to get their voting muscles in order to change the House of Representatives from being dominated by the Socialist Democrat Party to one controlled by Republicans.
Those Dems are getting loonier by the day, if you just pay attention to what is going on in DC.
And it wouldn't hurt to remind Christians to keep Republicans in control of the Senate.

Good to see the state attorney is taking up the case against the city. It's apparent that Chick-fil-A is the object of religious discrimination, though they do not give out evangelical tracts with every meal, nor have Bible verses printed on the back of their receipts.
It is unfortunate the city has to be taken to court; somewhere their attorneys will find some obscure Texas ordinance that permits them to do what they have done.
It is also unfortunate that for many, Christianity has become a battle-ground issue. If you were sitting on a bus (probably not the one with the opera singers singing about getting money from a cash settlement)and asked your fellow bus rider about this case, they would not see it as a "Come to Jesus" moment, nor understand why Christians seem to be so preoccupied with 'their rights.'
Well, you say, didn't Paul exert his rights when he was in a tight place?
Yes, he did; he said he was a Roman citizen and exerted his rights to appeal his case to Rome. (of course, with all the corruption existent then, it just 'withered on the vine' and Paul probably died before his case was ever heard).

Interesting that the Wall Street Journal is carrying this story. I wonder what all the Jewish stockbrokers in NYC are thinking about it--probably, those Israelis are nuts, that's why I don't bother supporting them.
Meanwhile, many evangelical Christians, driven by their dispensational view of End Times, support Israel, based on one verse from the Old Testament (.."I will bless those who bless you").
This news item reveals a bit of the reality of the current state of Israel, that it is a divided society where abortion is legal, and many other liberal measures are in effect, measures that would appall many evangelical Christians.
Some might even wonder...how can I support this country when it looks like the U.S. Democrat Party is in charge there?
Maybe that's why there is no 'Israel News Today' program on the local Christian channel, and if there is any news, it is all about the wonderful things evangelical Christians are doing there, or Messianic Jews (who probably make up the smallest religious group in that country).

Big applause to Diane for finding what the Bible has been saying for the longest time. Women ruling anywhere is a curse, as seen in the one God pronounces over his people in Isaiah 3:12. In the New Testament, we have Paul writing to Timothy and telling him in chapter 5 how women should be treated. The first application there is for widows, but in that context you can see how Paul draws up how a society should be ordered. Let's look at it: first, the church should be helping only widows in need. He tells men and women who have widows in their family to take care of those widows, not to ask the church to do it for them. He gives an age limit-over 60-for the widows the church should help. He says the younger widows should marry, bear children, guide the house. In the tenth verse, he gives how widows should be evaluated by the things they have been doing.
Study this chapter and you will find a biblical role for older women that is not being followed much today, not even in churches who say they believe in the Bible.

I'm surprised they did not mention the cost in lives lost on the roads due to drinking while driving, or while using marihuana or other drugs.

Good news, but the other story about abortion support not changing makes you wonder whether the current administration is just using this issue (as politicians are prone to do) as a means to get votes from the evangelical community.
Also, I don't like the fact that we have to wait for the Ninth Court to decide on any issue...the US Constitution does not give them supreme power over all decisions made by the Executive or Legislative branches.

Excellent commentary there, LV. Paul's letters to Timothy and the Thessalonians have a lot of excellent guidelines for women to follow. And, turning to the Old Testament, we find God's curse on Israel, spelled out in Isaiah 3:12, where children oppress my people and women rule.
Anytime you see women ruling in business, politics, etc. you are seeing an example of this curse in action.

The subtitle of this story could well be, "And coming to a neighborhood near you"
Your local police might have a few guys who want to imitate these rogue cops.

God created poison ivy, poison oak, poisonwood trees for something, too.
Arsenic is 100 percent organic when it is found in the seeds of apples.
The usual argument for legalizing MJ is for medical uses, but then, the next thing you know, it has exploded into all kinds of channels.
Medical reasons are the cause of this nation's Great Opioid Crisis. 'Pill mills' are doctors who operate clinics that prescribe hundreds if not thousands of these drugs.
Even your own Primary Care Physician is in on this business; you only need to ask him or her how much $$ he makes on every prescription he gives out.

I would like to hear from the insurance industry on this issue. Do people in those 11 states have to pay higher car insurance bills because there is a greater chance of them running into a driver 'under the influence'? And do they pay higher home insurance bills because some homeowners might set their houses on fire when they are smoking the Devil's Weed?

Headline is very very misleading. It should read "In UK, acceptance of..." because the USA is not the UK.
You could even argue that nothing in the UK is as it is in the USA. They wonder why we park our cars in the DRIVEway and DRIVE on the PARKway.
We wonder why they want to put luggage in their BOOTS and use a PRAM in the supermarket. And they go DOWN in a LIFT.

Thank you Phillip of Italy for your real-life eyewitness account. I do not doubt in any way what you say, esp. since the same behavior is seen at the Guantanamo base where Muslim terrorists are being held.
And your point about the refugee problem being a New World Order agenda item sounds a bit extreme, but we can find the words of the billionaire Yassir Arafat, saying that 'wombs will conquer Europe this time instead of swords' meaning that immigration of Muslims into Europe will lead to a majority Muslim Europe. We have seen this in the US in Deerborn, Michigan and Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the 2 Muslim representatives come from.
I have heard that the refugees flooding into the US from Mexico are financed by Democrats in Chicago. They do not walk across Mexico but have luxury buses that take them, have their food and other needs paid for, and so on. How can they afford this if they are poor in the first place and want to leave Central America?
The children are being rented out by parents to adults who do not have children, so that they will look like a family and gain greater access.
This weekend is supposed to begin the Great Deportation Exercise, where the US govt agents will try to deport a few thousand who have hidden themselves in the US. Let's see what happens

Interesting poll results. Makes you wonder what happened with that anti-abortion movie that came out this year? Wasn't that supposed to increase opposition to abortion?
Then, it also makes you think that the country is divided into 2 camps on this issue, and they do not talk to each other. There is no debate, no discussion, no meeting ground.
Then, it makes you wonder about how political parties have used this issue to further their own causes. Republicans know they can 'come out against abortion' and be assured they will get some votes. But they have to consider, they are also divorcing themselves from other votes.
Another thing that makes you wonder about this poll is the geography of it, and the age groups involved. I would be younger people support abortion--because it is the Back Door to a "Problem Pregnancy" Young men don't want to be saddled with the cost of the baby, and young men don't want to put up with the pain of pregnancy or the cost of raising a child. Sure, adoption is an obvious solution, but that involves some pain as well--giving up a child is no easy task.
It is no wonder that in many urbanized cities, there are numerous signs for DNA testing. Why is that? Who would get tested? What for? It's for young mothers who want to prove who a child's father is.
