  1. Admirable you quoted the American Constitution. However, the issue of him calling upon multiple different gods from several sources, trying to comprise and name them as the same one, is a poor attempt of appeasement. Truly, the God of the Bible is very different from the gods others serve and worship; it wouldn't be a surprise if people would find this either humorous, or insulting. This just makes the whole thing more concerning. Making light of prayer is something I can't agree with at all, and doesn't make sense. If you're attempting to speak to a higher power (or powers), wouldn't you do it in meekness, humility, and reverence? That's my two cents, anyway.

    I think it's totally fair to feel that way, I don't want to get into if it was right or wrong. I mainly just wanted to make Emanuel's motive clear and correct Doug's claim that the country was founded on biblical principles. The last 6 commandments are incredibly broad and their sentiment is shared amongst virtually every developed nation, regardless of religion. My main gripe was that Doug's claim undermines all the efforts our Founding Fathers made to promote the separation of religion and government, it's boarderline history revisionism. I do agree that the "a-women" pun really missed its mark though lol

    AMENDMENT I: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. https://www.constituteproject.org/constitution/United_States_of_America_1992#139 Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said he knows the word is not gendered. He used it as a pun intending to pay tribute to his female colleagues and to Rear Adm. Margaret Grun Kibben, the new House chaplain and first woman to hold the role.

  8. Whats interesting is that kind of Catholic rule was the only think keeping people from branching off and forming cults, and now that we've had freedom for so long now, there's so many so called bible based groups, each of them thinking rhe bible on their side, all of them using the same rhetorics for one another "now if you read it in context you'll get the truth!" "The bible said there would be a great falling away!" "Be not divided amongst yourselfs!" All groups use these, even the non cults, it's just annoying. But still, i think it's better this way, that we are all divided, not because God doesn't value order and unity, but because that unity has to be under God and not men, having this mess of different denominations and cults is a small price to pay to allow everyone the opportunity to seek God whole heartedly. Personally i will never identify with labels or belong to a denomination, but i will continue to learn from all of them because it helps sharpen me. I think some people prefer to be led by an orginization and told what to believe because it makes the fellowshiping easy and predictable, these structures are desirable to people who less concerned about truth and more so looking for belonging, or a sense of being in the right. God keeping us from become controlled by destroying one world rule is a good thing, and a recurring pattern in the bible. And look at how God preserved the New testament documents... not by giving the one true scripture to one orginisation, but by having multiple copys spread out across the land so we can cross reference! That way no one can change it, and if they did everyone will know! Its more messy that way but perfect for protecting the people from mistranslations
