Obviously, I didn't make my point clear. The Sanhedrin could have had Jesus stoned for blasphemy themselves, without going to the Romans for anything. That is part of the reason that the Pontius Pilate story makes no sense. If the Jews wanted Jesus dead, they had every pretext to kill him, themselves. The other part of why the story makes no sense, is that there is no custom of releasing a prisoner at Passover, either in Jewish custom, or Roman custom. The release of Barabbas, which name is Hebrew for "Son of the Father" by the way, so Jesus was a "son of the father, and so was Barabbas, is nothing more than a reenactment of the Jewish Day of Atonement during which two goats are selected, one loaded down with the sins of Israel and turned loose in the wilderness, and the other, the pure goat, is offered as a blood sacrifice. Then, the idea that Pilate, who was a brutal man with a vile temper would release a man who had committed murder is absolutely ludicrous!

And you'll note that even for that model of marriage, an essential ingredient is the union of both sexes...
Not at all. The T shirt company headed to scotus is arguing they will not print any gay messages on a t shirt. This is against an organization that organizes the lgbtq parade.
Being crucified and forsaken is a pretty big sacrifice from my perspective.
Woke up at 1 with a migraine....still have a migraine, but........
As much as I appreciate your intellectual and philosophical approach to questioning the commentators, I am perhaps too much of a reductionist to answer in a way you'd accept.
Imagine yourself as the lawyer for the next Christian baker case reading through
You lot are OK with science, up to the point it interferes with your interpretation of the bible.
The national party and affiliates like DCCC can attempt to convince or pressure candidates not to run, for local party derailment, or can infuse campaign cash into a chosen candidate. California is replete with races that can provide an example, chiefly the race for the 39th House District.
I meant all of us. Trying to wade through his stuff is enough to cause a migraine.
Calm down Paul,ok,ok you're not the opinion police...sheesh
Any belief system that requires you to suspend logic and rational thinking and replace it with faith is not worth following.
The bible says things man said, God said, and what man THOUGHT God said. For those who really want to find the truth they make the effort to study this.
I'm Canadian. I get Trumps joke. And just so you know. Conservatives are more pro America in Canada. Not liberals and certainly not NDP. Anti Americanism is alive and well in Canada.
We have been discussing and you conveniently ignore scriptures or inject your own back story to discredit what is said clearly.
As I understand it (and I'm far from an expert, so someone correct me if I'm wrong) those cultures that believe in the burqa (including the women themselves) believe that that's the
A computer virus is self-replicating. And we have genetically engineered (i.e. designed) organisms. So which exact aspect of life is it that you think magically inoculates it against design?
And that is not atypical?
