  1. There isn't much point in arguing how *one* church uses Leviticus as opposed to how another does because they are all different. Anything someone says could be seen as shocking blasphemy by another person. I am not catching anyone out, I am Christian.
  2. They added resources as it progressed but the FBI and ATF were present early on. I don't tend to watch television news so I don't know how the coverage was.
  3. The FBI will assist with serial killer cases as well and also the ATF sometimes since it was a bombing.
  4. I am a Christian, that was my point. There are things in the Bible that Christians do not adhere to, there are things *in the same book* that Christians will fight over. Do we just throw Leviticus out? Why?Why not? Why use some of Leviticus but still eat shrimp? I just can't imagine someone agreeing with *everything* that comes out of a pastor's mouth (who is not infallible) when we don't even adhere to every word in the Bible. I get we don't *have* to. I just don't care for Leviticus but that feels like blasphemy. :lol:
  5. I think many of us see terrorism as a the worst sort of crime because of major incidents that occurred during our lifetime. It's a crime to make a statement. As some of you know I am from Oklahoma City and lived there during the bombing. It impacted me personally. It was a horrible thing, to discover that the target was actually a tiny office that made up only a small portion of a large building that was mostly taken up by HUD and Social Security offices, there was also a daycare. But the target of the building was only a handful of people, not the nearly 200 that were killed. That was terrorism committed by a white christian(debatable) man. NO ONE denies that was terrorism. They charged him with the murder of Federal Agents because it was fast and could be tried in Federal court, the Patriot Act didn't exist then and they were going for the death penalty. If they hadn't got the death penalty they would have kept putting him on trial until they got the death penalty. The state of Oklahoma had made it very clear that they would try him again if the Feds didn't get the death penalty. If he hadn't murdered Federal agents he NEVER would have left the state. Terrorism is not a *worse* crime than murder. It's still murdering people. I am sure more will be revealed over time, it could be terrorism, but that isn't clear. But this seems to be a serial killer more than a terrorist, they would have KEPT GOING until they were stopped. He isn't better than a terrorist because he wasn't murdering people for the purpose of terror, he was a serial killer. He was a murderer. He murdered people who never harmed him and hurt his community.
  6. I use facebook but mostly to talk to friends and family members. I don't know if I could get my parents on another site. :laugh:
  7. It appears that they got several quotes and facts for their story, in what way do you think the story is incorrect?
  8. I think they are all going to be equally bad. If something is free, you are not the customer, you are the product.
  9. I don't get it either, it's completely inept people making giant desserts for which they don't have remotely enough time. It kinda seems like the whole thing is supposed to be funny. I think the host is supposed to be making fun of them a bit? I didn't think she was mean at all. I would have been laughing a lot harder than she did. One of those Trump cakes was actually terrifying my children. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: Did no one else notice from the introductions that the people competing in that show are bad at baking? Those people do not know what they are doing. :laugh: :laugh:
  10. What? There is nothing in the Bible with which you disagree? I mean...shrimp are delicious. The Bible doesn't answer every question and people are not infallible. I would be surprised if someone agreed 100% with their church, does that actually happen??
  11. I don't see it as all that unusual or unheard of, everyone has a different relationship with their faith. What works for you doesn't work for someone else, other people may feel convicted to make their community more welcoming. That is the path they have chosen. I don't see how it is overriding a spiritual obligation at all, they just have different spiritual obligations than you. I don't see much point in arguing about someone's personal convictions. They have their own reasons for them.
  12. I watched this, it was amazing. Though, fair warning, it made me crave Indian food badly during the program and now I have a lot of spices I didn't have before in my kitchen. :laugh: So far I have made several dishes, I like this website. https://myheartbeets.com/ :laugh:
  13. I play Pokemon Go with the kids, we also attend raids. :laugh:
