    That was one of the things that I questioned my priest about.
    Does that give us a free pass to murder?
    ..and, 'Died for our sins'.
    WTF does that even mean?
    Thanks from Madeline

    None of it made any sense to me, and I never believed. The sum total of the dogma seemed to be that sexual joy must be extinguished by any means necessary, including death, because God loves a tiny percent of humans, and none of the rest.

    Dafuq?

    No, but I certainly agree. I am a Deist, a sort of atheist-lite. I believe God exists, but that doesn't change or impact on the world, there is no afterlife, and the punishment for evil deeds is the horrors of watching yourself become evil.

    Point being, behaving well -- including real seeking and finding sexual joy -- is intrinsicly rewarding.

    Its not about electing a Saint, its about electing a Representative that will vote for what we believe is right and wrong. Jones stands for Democrat policies that are pro abortion and pro Gay rights and against Religious rights. Why any Christian in their right mind would vote for Jones knowing this needs their head examined. Since 75% of Alabama is Christian they have just been Bamboozled by a PAC funded by Soros for Democrat gain.

    So, IYO, character NEVER counts? I find that POV extremely troubling.

    C S Lewis explains this quite simply. We are all asked to turn from our sins...be that a Charles Manson, away from being a murdering cult leader...to Mother Theresea for telling a lie. There is nothing we can do to earn His love, it is a gift as is the gift of salvation. you either accept it in gratefulness and attempt to sin no more...or you continue in your sins, continue to not accept the gift. We each choose...The term sin comes from archery - you either hit the bulls eye or you miss it - a sin. God sees every miss the same...WE think there are levels of sins.

    C S Lewis -

    “[E]very time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that chooses, into something a little different than it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing into a heavenly creature or a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow creatures, and with itself. To be the one kind of creature is heaven: that is, it is joy and peace and knowledge and power. To be the other means madness, horror, idiocy, rage, impotence, and eternal loneliness. Each of us at each moment is progressing to the one state of the other.”

    What is truly troubling....The lying manipulating, deceiving left with despicable comments and insults like this particular commentary (I've now heard so many times)

    The left acting like we Christians had a choice between a perfect savior JESUS and Trump. We did not. We had a choice in the beginning...and we lost those other opportunities as the list grew shorter and shorter. I personally wanted Dr Carson. We ended having to choose between Hillary and Trump. Not a difficult choice at all, when that was all there was to choose from...and especially easy when that choice became specifically under all circumstances NOT Hillary...ever

    I did not watch the Moore election very closely, it was quite obvious by the timing...some 30 plus years later...after the candidate had been in numerous other elections and now that the right could not insert another candidate... that this was about smearing the candidate and muddying the waters enough to eek out a victory for the deceiving, cheating, lying manipulative left.

    I hold true to one of this nations most coveted and precious premises -

    ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies)since, by the nature of things, he who denies a fact cannot produce any proof.

    Today's rabid and bitter left will be bit hard by this and it appears it is being bit hard...meanwhile that same mean spirited, bitter and nasty left has chosen to presume guilt only where it serves a cause outside of the supposed offense. I find this beyond disgusting.

    For you European following liberal idiots -

    European Convention on Human Rights :

    "Everyone charged with a criminal offence shall be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law".
