Zimmerman not guilty

I agree with the verdict because he acted within his legal rights considering the "stand your ground" statute. I think the statute should be revised. I don't think it would have mattered in the case of George Zimmerman, because he's obviously the paranoid "everyone's out to get you" type. "If you see someone suspicious, they're a thief." "If someone's beating on you, they're gonna kill you." There's lots of people like that. That's probably why the "stand your ground law" exists in the first place  (Jul 27, 2013 | post #1399)

Zimmerman not guilty

George Zimmerman is a smoothie (smooth criminal) or maybe it's simply "American " justice. Only in America can you bag yourself a negro and walk out of court scott free with a coke and a smile.  (Jul 27, 2013 | post #1376)

Operation NAMBLA: The American Boyscouts

There is a problem with gays boys joining the boyscouts. That's like a straight boy joining the girlscouts. The new rule is that "openly" gay boys can join the boyscouts. Before, gay boys could join the boyscouts, it was just a don't ask, don't tell situation. The only problem was gay boys were getting hard-ons in the shower rooms, so everyone pretty much knew.  (May 29, 2013 | post #22)

Your plagiarism is quite hilarious. Everything you don't copy and paste is loaded with spelling errors. You're the one who shot back with an ad hominem. You can't refute the fact that Christendom's churches openly allow homosexuals into their ranks and youth activities. You know Jehovah's Witnesses do not. I can easily refute all your claims. http://community.b eliefnet.com/go/th read/view/44061/29 916939/The_Christi an_response_to_chi ld-abuse  (May 29, 2013 | post #18)

You're no different than numerous other persons on this forum that have a twisted preoccupation with pedophiles. Such a sick mind is definitely capable of slander. If you're a sick f*ck, you're a sick f*ck. Sick f*cks do have a tendency to get on the nerves of anyone human. My "nerves" however are irrelevant to what you are. Go away... Go eat a dick.

Operation NAMBLA: The American Boyscouts

A major victory for the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). As of May 23, homosexual boyscouts can now share tents with other boys on Brokeback Mountain. http://www.cnn.com /2013/05/23/us/boy -scouts-sexual-ori entation It will only be a matter of time before homosexual adults can serve as scout leaders. Boys will no longer just learn values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills... ...they'll also be taught how to squeal like a pig through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, hiking and anal sex. It's quite understandable, why Jehovah's Witnesses don't send their sons or daughters off to these “Church-based” interfaith movements reminiscent of the whore of Babylon.  (May 27, 2013 | post #1)

Is the GB beyond repentance?

Repentance is demonstrated by works that befit repentance. The only reason a person would make public declaration of repentance is if they committed a gross sin like "Unchained " who had sex with various men and women without using a condom and infected his wife with HIV. He didn't make public declaration of repentance so he was kicked out.  (May 26, 2013 | post #65)

Reporting Child Abuse

http://news.ninems n.com.au/national/ 2013/04/11/20/59/j ehovah-s-witnesses -stay-in-line-on-a buse "A Victorian inquiry on Thursday heard that when a Jehovah's Witness leader hears allegations of abuse they are directed immediately to contact the society's legal department to check their obligations under state law." "The society's director Terrence O'Brien said the decision to take the allegations to police lay with the victim. "Without mandatory reporting we don't feel that as ministers of religion that's our obligation to do that," Mr O'Brien said." ------------ Within Jehovah's Organization, there are two meetings a week and the door-to-door ministry where parents are expected to supervise their children at all times. Organizations with this type of social structure rarely have a child abuse policy, other than what is required by law. http://www.yorkdis patch.com/ci_22961 227/york-victims-s exual-assault-stru ggle-peace She was 14 the second time it happened. This time, it came at the hands of a 50-year-old woman from the church. Fessler said she was given the same punishment as her abuser. "I was publicly reproved (disgraced) at a church meeting," Fessler said Thursday after speaking about the abuse in public for the first time. "Because she was a woman, I should've known better. It was against the church ..." ------------------ -- It's certainly interesting how these stories are crafted. The real question is when did this woman first start speaking about this matter? When she was 14 or years later? These stories typically leave out nontrivial information. The claim from this woman was that she was assaulted by someone other than her parents. Can you picture this girl's parents standing by while their their daughter was publicly reproved for publicizing abuse at the age of 14? Unless her parents had reason to not to believe their daughter, they would have pressed criminal charges. The evidence points to the fact that this woman started spreading stuff in the congregation years later. If a person wants a matter publicized, go to the police and make a report. Haphazardly accusing someone of rape without law enforcement to back your claim will potentially result in ostracism in any community. The bottom line is that it's adults that tell things to the elders, not children. Adults that are obviously capable of making a report to the authorities. Another issue is; was this woman (the perpetrator) ever even charged or convicted of the crime of child abuse? The statutes of limitations has not expired. These articles are often very scanty when it comes to reporting any evidence. So far, this article has reported baseless claims.  (May 25, 2013 | post #78)

Ban on assault rifles

The Sandy Hook elementary school shooting has revitalized the fierce debate regarding gun control laws in the United States. It's not really a political entity (NRA) that's the problem, it's the people they represent (gun enthusiasts). Assault rifles to sportsman and gun collectors are "toys." You start off playing with toy guns as a kid. Then you get BB/pellet guns. Then you get real guns. You don't take away people's toys, that's taboo. Some of those assault rifles cost several thousand dollars. Banning assault rifles may not curb the rash of violence on our city streets, but banning high capacity military weapons won't disable civilians from defending their person and property. I'd say any Colt series revolver/pistol is adequate for self-defense. So what's a legitimate reason for NOT banning the commercial trade of military assault rifles amongst civilians?  (Jan 17, 2013 | post #1)

“Have you actually examined all of the archaeological evidence from this time period? It is astonishing that you can compare the evidence that disproves a 40 year desolation to second-hand testimony from historians removed from the actual events, by hundreds of years who relied on other sources, perhaps unreliable as well.” What evidence is there? it-1 p. 698 Egypt, Egyptian At Ezekiel 29:1-16 a desolation of Egypt is foretold, due to last 40 years. This may have come after Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest of Egypt. While some commentaries refer to the reign of Amasis (Ahmose) II, the successor of Hophra, as exceedingly prosperous during more than 40 years, they do so primarily on the testimony of Herodotus, who visited Egypt over a hundred years later. But as the Encyclopaedia Britannica (1959, Vol. 8, p. 62) comments on Herodotus’ history of this period (the “Saitic Period”): “His statements prove not entirely reliable when they can be checked by the scanty native evidence.” The Bible Commentary by F. C. Cook, after noting that Herodotus even fails to mention Nebuchadnezzar’s attack on Egypt, says: “It is notorious that Herodotus, while he faithfully recorded all that he heard and saw in Egypt, was indebted for his information on past history to the Egyptian priests, whose tales he adopted with blind credulity. . . . The whole story [by Herodotus] of Apries [Hophra] and Amasis is mixed with so much that is inconsistent and legendary that we may very well hesitate to adopt it as authentic history. It is by no means strange that the priests should endeavor to disguise the national dishonor of having been subjected to a foreign yoke.” (Note B., p. 132) Hence, while secular history provides no clear evidence of the prophecy’s fulfillment, we may be confident of the accuracy of the Bible record. --------------- Population statistics of the Egyptian late period (664 BC until 332 BC) and all such numbers are based on more or less educated guesswork. The estimates of the Egyptian population are in the millions as are the those of the Jewish nation during the Hellenistic period. Josephus reports that no less than 2,700,000 males gathered for a passover. It's not reasonable to think that the conquering soldiers searched every nook and cranny of the 386,659 square miles of Egypt to make sure someone of such a large population wasn't hiding in a cave. A “desolate waste and a devastated place...for forty years it will not be inhabited,” is indicative a devastating attack on the Egyptian nation with fugitives taken captive in the same manner as the Jewish nation in 607 BCE. There may be a lack of evidence outside of what's contained in Jewish literature, but a forty-year period of desolation of the Egyptian nation is certainly possible if not probable, considering Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest of Egypt and the Jewish nation. Most of the pagan kings were imperialists concerned with one thing; the geographic expansion of their Kingdom.  (Jan 12, 2013 | post #31)

“Interesting use of language here, "mortal men" to somehow portray secular history as fallible and to cast a negative shadow on "mortal men's" history itself. Are not the oracles contained in the Bible written by mortal men? Do you have the original oracles or mere copies written down by thousands of "mortal men"?” From your perspective, there may be no reason to believe the Bible is inspired by a supreme being. It's not really myself that is of the opinion that sources outside the Bible are secular because even the cylinder of Cyrus the Great documents Cyrus being motivated and led on by polytheistic deities as he records his conquest of Babylon. You seem to possibly be in agreement with this as you stated, “Berossus, Josephus, were not eye-witnesses and therefore cannot be equivocated with what the actual secular history of a specific time period indicates as they are second-hand historians, and not eye-witnesses.” As for any archaeological excavations unearthed that document what took place millenniums after the “fact” being recorded by an alleged eye-witnesses, what evidence is that it actually was? What evidence is there that Vat 4956 is an eyewitness account of celestial phenomena that occurred in the 37th year of Nebuchadnezzar? There are other things you may consider even if you're of the opinion that the Bible is not inspired of a supreme being; it-1 p. 312 Bible Bible writers displayed a candor that is not found among other ancient writers. From the very outset, Moses frankly reported his own sins as well as the sins and errors of his people, a policy followed by the other Hebrew writers. (Ex 14:11, 12; 32:1-6; Nu 14:1-9; 20:9-12; 27:12-14; De 4:21) The sins of great ones such as David and Solomon were not covered over but were reported. (2Sa 11:2-27; 1Ki 11:1-13) Jonah told of his own disobedience. (Jon 1:1-3; 4:1) The other prophets likewise displayed this same straightforward, candid quality. Writers of the Christian Greek Scriptures showed the same regard for truthful reporting as that displayed in the Hebrew Scriptures. Paul tells of his former sinful course in life; Mark’s failure to stick to the missionary work; and also the apostle Peter’s errors are related. (Ac 22:19, 20; 15:37-39; Ga 2:11-14) Such frank, open reporting builds confidence in the Bible’s claim to honesty and truthfulness.  (Jan 12, 2013 | post #30)

Capitalizing on select lines of archeology that conflict with the Biblical timetable outlined by the Watchtower Society is a logical fallacy. History as recorded by mortal men is tentative by nature. A historian could be mistaken or dishonest which is proven by the fact that the historical accounts of Berossus, Polyhistor, Josephus and Ptolemy conflict with each other. The very few conflicting archae ological excavations that document what allegedly took place 2,500 years ago hardly represents the final authority on anything. In this specific instance, we're not even dealing with sources outside the Jewish nation failing to confirm Bible history. The baked-clay cylinder in the Akkadian language in cuneiform script written by Cyrus the Great confirms the Jewish exile discussed in the Bible books of Jeremiah and Daniel. We're simply dealing with pinpointing specific dates with a margin of no more that forty years. The timetable outlined by Jehovah's Witnesses has a authentic basis in the scriptures and in secular records, excavations unearthed that now reside in museums. Like I said, the very few conflicting archae ological excavations that document what allegedly took place 2,500 years ago hardly represents the final authority on anything.  (Jan 11, 2013 | post #16)
