St. Thomas Moore was no pacifist; but he was a martyr.

There are no doubt any number of pacifists throughout history who chose to live rather than die for their faith. Martyrs they are not.


I would suggest that it is good to pray for both sides of the battle because they are all children of God. Whether they believe they are right or not doesn't have anything to do with it.

That's actually a mis-translation; the Hebrew is better rendered as "thou shalt not murder."


Good try though! biggrin

Good point, though Iran does not have them, and we could trace the nuke to it's(CHinese) manufacture, not sure with the precision one TV story pretends to though. I think Hugo's problem is just Venezuelan politics- he needs to keep his people behind him so he stirss things up...

The monroe doctrine is dead under Obama and we are in more and more danger every day. Breaking news....Iran just shipped long distance missiles to Venezuela that can reach us! The liberal media says nothing and Obama does nothing.

Fox News has also said nothing.

Cheryl, I think you watch too much TV. You can't live happily thinking that there's always some threat out there. Yes, there are threats, not just for us, but for everyone else in the world as well. We have to have faith in God and our leaders to try to keep us safe, but we can't live our lives as though a dark cloud is always above our heads, following us everywhere.


Mr. Obama is not a good leader and I can only hope that he does not get re-elected.

Right now, it is vital that everyone is aware of what is going on in the news whether by television, radio, or internet (especiall CM) and I use all three as I listen when I drive too (and we certainly have been getting more reason to know what is happening in the last four years than ever)...in order to spread the word and get Obama out as he is the most dangerous president that we have ever had in the history of America not just because of his foreign policy but because of persecuting Christians and promoting abortions. Since Obama is virtually a dictator overriding congress with more executive orders than any other president (www.catholicmatch.com and having liberal socialist or communist in his administration...having faith in him for any reason much less to "lead" our country would not be recommended by me....being aware and passing on everything you learn at this time to others is essential.

I have a friend in another state that is very active in promoting the dem party. She doesn't even know that the senate has been held by dems for the past four years and that Obama had both houses the first two. Trying to tell her as much got me no where. What I find so frustrating is these people that vote that don't know what is going on....granted, I was one of them....I didn't get involved until after partial-birth abortion bill and then not nearly enough until Obama got in and started his policies promting abortion and socialism, etc...the thing is I truly believe it is because we Christians haven't been as involved as the liberal promoting their agenda that our world has got this messed up.....all that is needed for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing. As it is, you can't watch any t.v. without Christians being portrayed as dark aged neanderthals who "rely on their religion and guns," (Obama quote) and are just silly backwatered ridiculous behind the time politically incorrect dunces. I think we all need to do whatever we can to change things before it is too late.
