Rhode Island Governor Will Just Call It A 'Christmas Tree' After Ridiculous 'Holiday Tree' Criticism

Rhode Island Governor Will Just Call It A 'Christmas Tree' After Ridiculous 'Holiday Tree' Criticism

Commented Dec 3, 2013 at 10:45:40 in Politics

“It's a traditional Christmas decoration. It isn't an idol, nor does it involve the worship of pagan gods or the embracing of pagan religions.”

“No they worship the other god at this time see BLACK FRIDAY and Early THURSDAY

Money and who has the most things is now the AMERICAN god to worship.

Jeremiah 10:1-25 ESV / 236 helpful votes

Hear the word that the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel. Thus says the Lord: “Learn not the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them, for the customs of the peoples are vanity. A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move. Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.” ...”

“What is the purpose of prison--punishment or rehabilitation? Or are they one in the same?”

“He doesn't run a prison...it's a jail.

Prisons are for punishment. The US gave up on rehab decades ago; you can see it in how all the positive programs were stopped.”

“Neither, the main purpose of prison was always to keep the public safe. Prison is not to be used as punishment nor rehabilitation.

Pope Francis 'Evangelii Gaudium' Calls For Renewal Of Roman Catholic Church, Attacks 'Idolatry Of Money'

Pope Francis 'Evangelii Gaudium' Calls For Renewal Of Roman Catholic Church, Attacks 'Idolatry Of Money'

“Charity is the voluntary giving of one's time, efforts, heart, and finances to help others. Capitalism allows charity to flourish by providing needed goods and services to the public at fair prices, as well as creating jobs and tax revenue. It also naturally creates opportunities for all able-bodied people to get ahead by doing their part to contribute to society in a productive manner. Charity is not the forceable extraction of hard-earned dollars from tax-paying citizens in order to allow the government to play the hero in giving away other people's money. It is the attitude and practice whereby we each sacrifice and give what we have, regardless of how much or how little we have. We should all do more of that ... because most of us have more than we need. Human nature leads us to cling to what we have or envy what others have. But God designed us to share with one another. And when we do, we all thrive together.”

BullMoose15 on Nov 27, 2013 at 11:13:04

“I like Capitalism.. but it's top heavy an regulations are necessary. Now, charity is great but let's be realistic, people are not charitable enough and never will be to reach all those in need, which is was government intervention is required.”

Tibor Spagina on Nov 27, 2013 at 11:10:55

“That God planned this country and capitalism this way is as true as He planned the devil. The Lord was teaching just the opposite of what unfettered capitalism is: deny yourself, and follow me, where your treasure is, there will your heart be also, pile up treasure in heaven, it is easier for the camel to get through the eye of a needle, than for a rich to go to heaven, blessed are the poor, "my kingdom is not from this world. Of course, the terrible, erroneous Bible interpretation by Calvin, justified everything, the fate of all those less fortunate, the poor. I am glad our Catholic Church has been against this system of self-glorification and has been standing for social justice, fairness and equality for all. May the Lord bless you all.”

“Has anyone stopped to wonder why, out of the billions of planets in the universe, there seems to be only one--just one--with the precise conditions to sustain life?”

Angel1999 on Oct 31, 2013 at 11:03:11

“It's called confirmation bias. The fact that we have only seen this one out of several hundred means very little when you consider there are likely trillions out there that we haven't seen.

If a thousand people are walking in the woods at night with flashlights, but you only see one flashlight, does that mean that the other 999 people aren't really there?”

DXM on Oct 31, 2013 at 10:06:27

“Considering we have only detected about 1,000 of the hundreds of billions of planets in our galaxy, it is premature to conclude that only one of them has the conditions to sustain life. And you have to remember that Earth appears to have the "precise condition to sustain life" because the lifeforms on this planet have had four billion years to evolve to thrive in the precise conditions that exist on Earth.”

“Of course you mean life as we know it and on the surface of a planet.”

JaySF123 on Oct 31, 2013 at 09:29:02

“So let's see we have only confirmed a 1000 or so planets. There are many thousands of other potential planets on which we are still analyzing the data or waiting for confirmation from separate analysis. We have only had the technology to even search for planets outside our solar system for about 20 years and only in the last 5 years or so has it reached a point where we can identify planets as small as Earth. So while it is projected that there are billions and billions of planets out there we have only scratched the surface on what they are. What we have found has shown us that there is a great variety of planets out there. If you want to play on the science pages please remove your religious bias at the door and look at the evidence, all of it.”

“There are increasing suggestions of multiple dimensions. Maybe each Universe was meant to hold only one as a test tube.
