gary,


I commend you for doing what has to be a very difficult job with dangerous people. I also am impressed by how you make your points for Christ and His Church. I regret that I usually don't think as rapidly on my feet as you do; I usually think of the right thing to say hours later!

WOW.... you made my day Jim but I wish sometimes I was more like you, waiting a while to say the "right" thing. To be in aologetics, I have learned a lot. I wonder why me? A mere knucklehead at times.... I have myself under a microscope though. I dear older woman who is really Catholic, what I mean is she breathes the love of the faith out of every pore in her body.... She told me that in order for me to ever be effective as a militant Catholic, meaning standing up and defending the faith, I have to go to daily Mass and weekly confessions. She is so right, when I mess up is when I couldn't get to Mass.... She said Satan will be attacking me in any way he can and she is soooo right. When I look at the crucifix it just humbles me... That is where I get convicted as well as meditating on the Sorrowful mysteries. Jesus did not get mad at his opponents and while I pray them which I need to do more often, I see my ugly self not living up to how we are called to act, that is with love at all times... I get humbled when others say, what's up with you, you are being mean.... That really ruts.... I want to be a Saint, as Pat Coffin says on Catholic Answers Live, what else is there to be..... Your compliment means a lot, it really does, pray for me though so I can be a shining light even in the course of debating. Peter tells us to always be able to given an apologia/defense/explanation for our faith, but then he says, "but do it with gentleness and reverence...." Well, we have to keep our eyes on being a Saint, all of us, so we pray, repent and receive the sacraments...

God bless you,
Gary

I know I saw a movie about how they force children to marry and basically rape and molest them. Unfortnuately, I can't get that movie out of my head ever...the young girl crying and crying for her mother when she was torn away from her and forced to "marry". There really is a war on women and this religion is definitely part of it as are the leftist, socialist, communist, etc. Thanks for the information about the two Korans....I've heard so many defend it because they didn't read the real Mecca Koran. I also heard before about how they are permitted to lie to us since they consider us infidels. We have a large influx now of immigrants from Moslem areas....why?

Hi Cheryl,


Listen to this, www.catholic.com the Koran speaks of hell as well, it says there are mostly women in there because they were not obedient to their husbands.... I would think Hollywood, Womens voice in America and the ACLU would be having a fit of this...


God bless,

The sequester was a cut, we need it.... I hope that those who do have the power as to what they cut would do it wisely. However, Obama wants it to hurt so he looks good for saying it would be sooooo devastating and the Republicans look like mean, cold want to throw grandma over the cliff and they want dirty water and dirty air.... FOX news was showing how cuts could be made that do not hurt. There is enough waste in those departments that can be prudenty cut out.... But the left wing news will exploit this to it's best, because Obama must always look good. So much for investigative reporting today from the left. No, there is this big love affair with Obama... the guy who voted to kill babies on the table if they survived an attempted abortion.... If a innocent baby cannot get his protection then who else would look to him as a leader. He is another Hitler and ya know, people during Hitlers time dismissed the warnings about him... Oh no, it would never happen..... it is..

Senator Coburn from Oklahoma is the budget hawk who really knows where the waste is coming and going. He's been doing it for years.

This is just an excerpt of things that could be changed to trim the deficit.

Helen, I saw that one. It is truly sad that the politicians cannot work together and it will hurt all of us. I have a novel idea, don't give the politicians in DC a paycheck until they can come up with a solution that is agreeable to both parties and restores our government.

The sequestration hurts the most vulnerable of our citizens and dismantles our military and furloughs employees who are doing their jobs, something the Beltway politicians forget.

I'm still waiting for my copy of 5 Broken Cameras, but I'll see that as soon as I can. Israel/Palestine is a volatile place that triggers passionate responses. There is much truth on both sides of the issue. We all learn from dialog, and although I've studied the area for some time, am still learning. The reason I'm fascinated with the it's history is because it affects the way we are perceived by the rest of the world. That's far more important than most of us realize.

Peter: I have many friends who work for the UN. They are not American. They tell me how the US is not liked. But now
the world is happy again with America because they like Obama and their faith in America has returned. Are you kidding?
You want to know what the rest of the world thinks of us?

They want our money. That is all. They want our jeans and our (knockoff) designer clothes. And they want our music.
Other than that, they have no use for us.

They will never like America because of how they are brainwashed. And now they are happy with America because of
Obama. Well, Americans are not happy with Obama, and that is what really counts.

The Mideast is a real conundrum though. I am starting to believe what many have said, that there will never be peace
in that area. It is a sad situation.

The funny thing is that although America is so disliked, people from all over will do anything to come here.

Years ago, I had a couple of friends from Denmark. One was an accountant and the brother was a baker.They once said to me words to the effect: what is wrong with Americans? All they do is complain about how bad their country is and that it is so hard to accomplish anything. Don't they realize this is the easiest country to make a go of it in the entire world? Anyone willing to work can achieve a comfortable life that is reserved only for the very rich in Europe.

Things have gotten a lot worse here since they told me that. And if Obummer succeeds with his mad ideas, we will be as bad off as Europe.

Meanwhile, the Islamic fanatics continue their destructive ways.

The written history of man starts in the Middle East. Maybe that is where it will end.

I was referring to the lack of respect we have from many countries. I don't care whether they like us or not.
