  1. I grew up in a Southern Baptist environment. Until the age of 16, I was at church twice on Sunday and every Wednesday evening. In your list of 4, I think I heard conversation around item 1 occasionally, but perhaps in different context. Items 2 and 3 I've never heard until now. I don't think this rhetoric exists. Number 4 is out of context. Your rewards in heaven comes from the acceptance of Christ in your life, not religion. I attend Church of the Highlands now. The messages taught are the same I learned in my youth.
  2. I am headed that way shortly. If I knock please have coffee.
  3. The growing perception that the FBI is infected by political bias is driven by, among other things, the discredited Russia collusion probe, the raid on Donald Trump's estate and the treatment of some Jan. 6 defendants. The problem is raising red flags, leading some to suggest it is time for another Church Committee like the one in the 1970s that led to the reform of the bureau after J. Edgar Hoover's era. https://justthenews.com/accountability/political-ethics/did-fbi-brass-sanitize-agents-report-warning-political-influence
  4. Wouldn't matter in the least if it was. It is common practice here accepted daily. IMO to object to said practice is foolish.
  5. Trump is used in the article as the latest example of a far bigger problem. The Trump case is almost incidental to this wider story of extralegal short-cuts, intimidation, improper searches, and especially, a constant, intensifying effort at discrediting the adversarial system in favor of an executive-branch-only vision of the law, in which your right to stand before a judge or jury would be replaced by secret bureaucratic decisions. “Trump has become the way they sell this,” says one defense attorney. “But it’s not about Trump. If you focus on Trump, you’ll miss how serious this is. And it started a long time ago.” When? “Go back to 9/11,” he says. “You’ll see.”
  6. Congrats! I can only go on the evidence presented, as in your comments. Uh, I am not the one that misinterpreted the article.
  7. Guess I'm failing to see the problem here. People on this forum copy and paste daily. I'd say the majority of the time. And frankly, if you agree with sentiment from a piece you copy that technically could be your thoughts as well. You are in agreement. If you restate, in your own words, it is still the same thought same message. Again, it is done daily on this forum. So what exactly is the problem?
  8. The larger question is did you? The current Trump investigation is just the latest chapter of a long-brewing civil liberties nightmare. The Trump case is almost incidental to this wider story of extralegal short-cuts, intimidation, improper searches, and especially, a constant, intensifying effort at discrediting the adversarial system in favor of an executive-branch-only vision of the law, in which your right to stand before a judge or jury would be replaced by secret bureaucratic decisions. “Trump has become the way they sell this,” says one defense attorney. “But it’s not about Trump. If you focus on Trump, you’ll miss how serious this is. And it started a long time ago.” When? “Go back to 9/11,” he says. “You’ll see.” The articles goes on to discuss cases highlighting the problem. Perhaps read it in its entirety it would make sense? Trump is used as an example, not the overall theme. “When you have principles,” says Flowers, “sometimes those principles even protect people you don’t like.” But we need them, and if we don’t protect them, we’ll all lose them.
  9. The Border Patrol has nabbed 78 people on a terrorist watch list so far this fiscal year, according to new Department of Homeland Security data. The new numbers represent a sharp increase as the Biden administration faces growing pressure to tighten security at the border: Just 15 suspected terrorists were caught in all of the fiscal year 2021, and just 11 were caught in total from 2017 to 2020. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/sep/20/surging-number-suspected-terrorists-nabbed-jumping/
  10. Probably help to understand what a Christian is and what it isn't. Put in the work.
  11. The story isn't about Trump, but rather a dangerous federal law enforcement bureaucracy. But Trump lol.
