I don't think this court's ruling will have any effect on Muslims in the UK because there are too many of them.
I was wondering why, with over 50 countries in the world where Muslims are a majority, they have any need to live in a country like the UK or the USA.
The problem is that they do not have a religion, they have a 'world-view' that includes all they see.
While Christians can say, I can smoke or chew tobacco or drink (see Jesus changed the water to good wine, Paul advising Timothy to drink wine, etc) and still be a good Christian, the Muslim cannot do any of that. And they have a whole bunch of other rules, like what the surgical procedure they perform on their young girls that destroys their ability forever to enjoy what Genesis describes as "Adam knew Eve and she conceived..." And that they cannot own a dog because all dogs are considered unclean. And politics? Christians can be of any party or none, while Muslims will only be happy when their religion controls the govt, like it is done in Saudi Arabia. In the meantime, they are 'biding their time.'
Did you notice the source of this--a Brit website, not an American one like Fox News or CNN or MSNBC? Of course, in this world of clicks creating revenue, they could have left off the word "Utah" in the headline so it would appear the US Senate is approving this. A lot of people were very upset when a Mormon ran for President, and they had a lot of good reasons--he was and still is a worthless politician. I don't think marriage is held in very high repute today, so polygamy is not such a hot issue, and thus, this news item is not being covered at other websites. More interesting is the plane from Venezuela stopped in Aruba with phony ID numbers on it.
I was going to comment on the value of all these celebrities involvement with religion, wondering what special weight do they have to comment on anything. For the most part, acting is a lot of memorizing, and there is some creativity in 'pretending' to be something you are not. How do those skills transfer to religion or politics to give them a platform to speak on? It is sad that much of our society is driven by the need to keep up on what Celebrity A said about something, or wore, or ate. Some might say that President Trump was elected because he had this celebrity recognition, while many other fine people were passed over. Well, that's the way it is in today's world, driven by clicks and smartphones, images and videos. But when I read the Tx comment about what a teen was listening to, it made me think of what a friend pointed out...the most recent book by comic strip "Dilbert" author, called "Loserthink" has a section about the importance of what you fill your mind with. For a secular guy like that to write pages on what our Bible teaches, that we should have the 'mind of Christ' (see Phillipians 2, 1 Corinthians 2) it really is amazing. And he is not alone among secular people noticing this effect.
May this serve as a reminder to all about what happens to a country when Muslims are allowed to immigrate and become a larger percentage of the population. May this serve as a reminder of what President Donald Trump said about 'sh**-hole countries..this is one of them! Stay away from them! You are not welcome here.
1. Rush is not registered to vote Democrat, and in Florida, that means he cannot vote for this sodomite. 2. Rush does have the largest talk radio audience, but even so, I think people 'self-select' so that few Dems listen to him. He is definitely preaching to the choir. Therefore, this sodomite will get few votes from Rush's audience. 3. Maybe the sodomite is just trying to get more clicks going his way, but again, Dems don't care about Rush (or Fox News), so what's the point? 4. Bottom line: all these Dem candidates have nothing to offer, and the debate just showed you their main strength--attacking one another. It reminds you of that old saying about the 'bucket of crabs' where they conspired against any crab who tried to get out of the bucket. If you put only 1 crab in the bucket, he might escape, but with 2 or more, they will keep each other from getting out. It is interesting to note there are no more black or Asian candidates among them.
You definitely could say that China created it by allowing people to eat all kinds of living things. It makes you think of all those rules in the Bible about what you can or cannot eat. Of course, on the good side, they don't have a problem with feral cats that occurs in US cities where grannies go out and feed these cats living in parks and on the street, without facing the facts that even the Audubon Society tells us that they are eating all the birds they can hunt. Even house cats that are let outdoors will hunt birds down.
Another try from the 'World Nut DAily' folk to get some clicks going their way. I think the key aspect missing in the headline is "British" or "UK" because the issue is there, not in the US. I have commented before that I have given up on anything UK or British, since they have long changed their society, thanks in part to their very liberal governments, controlling elites, and immigration of mostly Muslims that have transformed the country. Next thing will be 'minarets appearing in British towns' awakening all residents with their 5am calls to prayer. Welcome to England!
When I first heard about sodomites wanting to get married in an official setting, I thought, good, now they can get divorces, too. It reminded me of something I had read about sodomites--they have a very high rate of 'partner exchange.' While heterosexuals may only have an average of 4 or 5 'sexual partners' in their entire life, sodomites have hundreds, if not thousands of them. It is disgusting to even think about it, but the facts are the facts.
"Don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up" is the motto for many today, esp. in relation to abortion, which they frame as 'a woman's right to choose' or 'women's reproductive health' Now I just watched a TV health channel with a female expert on breast cancer say that women who do not have children have a higher risk of getting breast cancer. Boy, if that isn't a clear signal that God intended women to have children, I don't know what is, yet in today's society, life is all about living your own life with freedom, not controlled by some old-fashioned ideas like religion. I have also heard there are health issues with abortion (of course, not only for the child but for the mother) which are not covered in the media.
I am beginning to think that SBC means Soon Be Changing. There must be over a hundred different Baptist denominations in the US. But then, I remember another story about the Methodists dividing recently over the sodomite issue. And Presbyterians have many varieties, too.
Maybe the next step for the House of Reps is to ignore the selection of Nancy Pelosi as head of the whole group? No, it does not surprise me in the least that they are doing this, since they operate with the mindset of 'don't bother me with the facts, my mind is made up'
It is interesting to compare this issue with how they deal with the guns issue. I've heard that every male in the country is required to serve in their armed services, and they are all armed. I wonder how that affects the crime rate. Another issue that would be interesting to find out how they deal with is immigration, especially of Muslims. I've heard in other European countries, Muslims are welcomed, and, as a result, women have to be very careful when they leave their homes. For many Muslims, maybe the ones from subdeveloped countries (that our President famously termed with a bathroom-related term), any woman--of any age--walking on the street alone is considered to be a prostitute, because in their religion, women's place is in the home, under the care of a parent or husband. Therefore, when they see a woman walking alone, with no protection nearby (what in America would be called a 'pimp'), they think they can attack that woman and sexually assault her. I've also heard that large groups of Muslim men, say 15 to 30, will go out and gang up on a woman to assault her, even in a public place like a train station. So, in Switzerland, is this happening?
Just another example of people behaving in non-rational ways. Same thing with abortion, which everyone knows kills an unborn human being, but the constant media drumbeat of 'woman's right to choose' and the overlay of total sexual freedm add up to people approving of it, even though their own Catholic Church (for example) is opposed to it.
You wonder how many of their congregation support the sodomite cause like they do. And that might reveal a 'Cultural Divide' between them and their congregation. This news story should be paired with the one about the decline of attendance at these congregations. Basically, people can find other ways to have the same opinion without spending money on someone's salary or a huge building with pipe organ. The Democrat Party is one place, and so is the local newspaper.
"Follow the money" is the theme today. It's good the 'federales' are checking up on these money connections, but they could find the same thing happening in any US university. What makes this particular version of interest is the fact that the Asian students lost their lawsuit against Harvard for using a quota to limit their numbers. Bottom line: they set a limit to the number of Asians to be admitted. The court decided in favor of the college, in a huge version of double-speak.
