Last night we watched the movie We Were Soldiers. Never seen it before and what stuck me was a speech Gibson's character gave before the went into hell. I get it and why so many can't relate to this joke of an administration.

From last nights movie, it says it all:

Lt. Colonel Hal Moore: I can't promise you that I will bring you all home alive. But this I swear, before you and before Almighty God, that when we go into battle, I will be the first to set foot on the field, and I will be the last to step off, and I will leave no one behind. Dead or alive, we will all come home together. So help me, God.

Hey doofus- I'm no expert on Christianity but I'm pretty sure Christ is always ON topic for the truly faithful and if you can't tell the difference between Roberta who actually walks the walk and the wannabe's who just talk the talk, you aren't too bright.

There are some rough, primitive, America-love-it-or-leave-it people here. One or another of them may not be above making a "towel head" comment.
Umm, noooooo. That seems to be your thing.
Let me demonstrate.

Two families moved from Afghanistan to America. When they arrived, the two fathers made a bet: in a year's time whichever family had become more Americanized would win.
A year later they met. The first man said, "My son is playing baseball, I had McDonald's for breakfast and I'm on my way to pick up a case of Bud, how about you?"
The second man replied, "Fcuk you, towel head."

When I read that I think that the joke is not on Arabs but on Americans. See, Catcher wants so much to believe that the typical american calls anyone from the arab countries towel head. That makes him feel superior. The truth is that I have never ever heard anyone refer to anyone from the middle east as towel heads. I believe the first I ever heard it was when Prince Harry of England said it.

Ouch! I'd like to see the yoga move you had to do to make the connection between Gibson's movie lines and "so many" relating to the administration. You better make an appointment with the chiropractor.

Good here. And I said couldn't relate to an admin that is so self- absorbed. Said it back in 2009 and still think it, its like all obama ever does is run for office. I will enjoy the next few years as more and more people that actually have skin in the game like the man I spoke to last week shore up for free healthcare. Own it Hip

Lyndi, I want particularly to thank you for this. I really don't think Catcher meant any harm, but if you could write a post like this about ME--well, by golly, with Jesus leading me, I must be doing SOMETHING right :) Thanks, you made my day!

Matthew 6:5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full."

Anyone - where do you think this teaching has actual life application? Did Jesus talk just to fill the space between the "really important" personal salvation bits? I don't know - my Bible colors all his words red, like they're all of equal value. Others seem to have different colors to tell between "command", "advisory", and, what? "Not applicable"? I need to get me one of those Bibles.

I don't know why C had to comment, I suspect he was just jacking with her. Possibly he noticed she had just recently chastised a drive-by for commenting on a post from the the early days of the thread. You're not supposed to do that, I guess. Why? I'm guessing because she felt it was inappropriate to the current run of the thread, or something like that? But her public prayer was different, because.....hmm.

The Uber-Pious believe they can blurt out anything in any public setting, and the rest of the crowd are supposed to quietly respect and admire their "commitment" and "piety". It's about the same consideration you're supposed to show when an autistic child blurts out in public, really. This room isn't any different then a bus station, a restaurant, or any other public place. But -- Yes, if someone feels "overcome by the spirit" and blurts out their public prayer, I generally just keep quiet. I didn't used to, but I learned. No need to give them fuel - they >really< get rolling if ANYone shows ANYthing less than agreement, or at least mute, bent-neck acceptance.

What tickles me is how it illustrates the real truth behind the uber-pious claims of being "marginalized" and "persecuted".

In America.

Yeah, crazy, huh? I guess I've read enough of the martyrs that I'd be ashamed myself to try and glorify myself that boldly. This petty stuff ain't just a different ballpark, it ain't even PeeWee ball compared to what they suffered - and usually in silence, following the Teacher's example. Whenever you hear the uber-pious American talking about their suffering with the saints? Here's a perfect example, from beginning to end.

Hip--I'm pretty sure that red-letter Bibles are just highlighting Jesus' words. They're not trying to say which of His words are the most important.

As for the rest of your post--I'm confused. What are you trying to say?

Benghazi. As BB posted some of us think its quite important. The only reason I'm not as mad as BB is I don't know what it means to serve in uniform. I can guess but without a doubt its not something you can really know unless you have. Having said that most in my family has and says of obama he can go right to hell.

Sorry Roberta. Some of this is a carry over from another forum but Catcher has been doing the same thing now for quite some time. I'm with Lyndi here, he is exactly what he claims he can't stand, a bigot and for one will say so.

Hip has been saying the same thing since at least 07. No time for it anymore.

I'm glad you asked that question. If Hip has any gumption he'll answer it without the innuendos.

Okay. After rereading Hip's post, however, I do want to add this. My Easter posts from Saturday night and yesterday were NOT prayers, nor were they meant as prayers. They were just holiday greetings. Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm rather surprised that anyone saw them as prayers.

I agree. Its clear that you are just thankful we can share who we are and I saw it the same way. What some would like is if those of faith would just shut up. Keep it out of the public. That I will never do.

I expect 'those of faith' would like it, if their neighbors who don't appreciate being subjected to their public piety, would just 'shut up' about that too.

Neither is likely.

Just for the record, I'm certain Roberta was NOT offering her holiday greeting, in order to garner attention to her love of the Lord. Roberta, in my opinion,(for whatever it's worth) is sincere in her work to follow Christ, and isn't in it for the accolades.

If that were true of most of the Christians I've known, I wouldn't have such an objection to public piety; and I wouldn't so often have the feeling that it's being exhibited for its own sake.

But that's just me.
