Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told men to "shut up and step up" when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh's sexual assault accusation. Asked whether her being one of four women on the Senate Judiciary Committee impacts the Kavanaugh confirmation proceedings, Senator Hirono says, "I just want to say to the men of this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change."
"Not only do women like Dr. Ford, who bravely comes forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed. They need to be believed," Hirono said. "We cannot continue the victimization and the smearing of someone like Dr. Ford."
"We have to create an environment where women can come forward and be heard and be listened to. I want to thank Dr. Ford. I commend her courage. I believe her," the Senator said....

How could I have missed that you were a preacher of the gospel. From your posts I thought you were trying to get possum fur out of your craw. Nothing like getting possum fur and hair in your throat. Makes you cough to abnormality. Even make you say things that turn people away from the reality found in the gospel; even make you think there is no God.
When I was a child I was told that possums can fake death. Some politician was no doubt after them. Now that I am grown, I am learning that preachers can fake life. Never feeding others anything but their fleshly opinions.
Well, enough about possums (pretenders). I like eating the bread from heaven. I'll leave supreme court matters to the Supreme One too.
My prayers are for you, other veterans, and preachers battling for the souls of men.
Hirono said she expects the men of America to demand an investigation by the FBI. Why? Is Kavanaugh accused of crossing state lines to commit a crime? No. This is just a shallow attempt to derail the confirmation of another conservative nominee. Hirono also said that Blasey should be believed. Why shouldn't Kavanaugh be believed? The presumption of guilt is un-American, and very typical of liberals' dirty tricks. If Blasey cannot speedily prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Kavanaugh is guilty of actual wrongdoing, then she, Hirono, and all the other clanging cymbals of liberalism are the ones who should shut up. Permanently.

And telling Christopher to shut up was very arrogant and rude. My last post to you on this topic. "It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling." (Proverbs 20:3)
So why do you keep meddling?
I am talking about certain men who used violence ganged up on weaker groups. Anyone touting superiority above another is a self-centered racist.
I believe the godly should lead. There lives should demonstrate another's righteousness. Not their own prideful self-righteousness.

What do you mean ‚Äúalways?‚ÄĚ What do you mean ‚Äúsuch?‚ÄĚ What do you mean ‚Äúracist?‚ÄĚ
Always from birth? Such to what degree? Racist compared to who or what?
There was a time "racist" distinguished "white" people from people of color. Today it has multiple applications.
It is when men fail to identify properly with others I consider them racist. They think highly of themselves while demeaning other people groups. Those who play God by demanding to rule over others, joining with others in order to deprive others of their God-given liberties. But you commented on an issue concerning victimization. Jim, they often do what you seem to have done here.
I'm not very bright and my lights are dimming faster at this age. And I cannot understand for the life of me how you saw me as racist. To satisfy you fishing expedition, I am neither racist, nor a racist. I was just stating the fact that certain men dominate. They are white. They do it by deceit today as they have done in the past. Though sinners like the rest of us, they promote agendas that maintain the status quo.

Matthew 5:37 KJV (37)¬† But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. But to answer your question, please be informed that I know you better than you imagine I know you; you are a fearless preacher and soul winner, not given to being caused to bow down for any reason, and any upshutting by yourself is a mere whim and humorously passing comment, designed to offbalance someone who ought to know better than they do, but who post without thought or prayer, showing themselves to be without Holy Ghost guidance or desire to truly edify, not having sufficient scripture anyway.
Two scriptures for those critical of her and refusing to "listen for heaven's sake." 1 Cor. 2:11 and Prov. 18:2.
Make some effort to go beyond the spur of the moment comments. PLEASE.
And Tim, go preach the Gospel and get off this board for a day or two, I say. Rest your fingers and your mind and breathe in the life of the life giver for a while.

The implication, of course, is that men never do right, and that doing so now would be a first. Poor thing had a rotten childhood; show me five people who didn't. That's no excuse for being a rotten adult. Good afternoon, John UK. You didn't honestly think I'd stay away long, did you?
I believe she was inferring the following from Proverbs 18:2:
A fool has no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.
He that has ears to hear, let him hear.
Keep your eyes on your offspring, your mother, wife, sister, and those you love when you see a change in their relationships. Even males.
I think we'll see more catholic victims come forward in 25 - 30 years.
