    I ran across this studying my Sabbath School lesson on the last chapters in Matthew and found it interesting. http://causeofjesusdeath.com/jesus-in-secular-history/ Jesus in Secular History There is compelling historical evidence for the existence of Jesus outside of the Bible. Among the extra-biblical references to Jesus, Cornelius Tacitus provides the most complete description supporting the biblical accounts of Jesus’ crucifixion in his Annals 15:44. Regarding Nero’s mass persecution of Christian’s in 64 A.D., Tacitus wrote a description of mass Christian persecution. This includes reference to Jesus (Christus, a latin transliteration of Christ, the Greek word used for the Hebrew Messiah), being crucified (the extreme penalty) by Pontius Pilate. Tacitus also references a “most mischievous superstition” believed by Christians. This passage from Tacitus’ Annals is considered authentic by historians. It is noteworthy that Christians are portrayed negatively, making it an unlikely forgery of pious Christians. By 64 A.D. Christianity had expanded through the Roman Empire to such a degree that Christians became easy scapegoats for the great fire of Rome and became the focus of mass persecution.

    You really haven't been paying attention have you? The left is trying to make Orlando all about guns and homophobia and even trying to try an Islamic gunman to conservative Christians as if somehow he was watching Jerry Farwell Jr. and said "I can't get with this Jesus as Lord think but yeah homosexuality is wrong! I need to go kill some people in the name of Jesus...I mean Allah...I mean...." Meanwhile the right is trying to make this all about immigration and Muslims. And only dishonest people looking at this ignore the international connection. (He pledged intelligence to ISIS and Lorretta Lynch at first censored that as if nobody would notice.) There is national outrage but the outrage is aimed in different directions for political purposes. Instead of seeing U.S. flags all over the place we are seeing rainbow flags.

    Wrong! PUTTING UP SIGNS WOULD HAVE COMPLETELY NEGATED THEIR LIABILITY IN A LAWSUIT! Seriously, did you totally miss the back and forth between myself and presence? The case law with regards to wild animals is this. If a wild animal wanders on your property and attacks someone you are not liable unless you had knowledge of the wild animal and you didn't warn the people you invited to come and use your property. It's that freaking simple. It's not hard. There's no need to complicate this with all this BS. Disney knew about multiple gator attacks on their property. It was only a matter of time before someone got killed. They could have, and freaking should have, warned people about it. And yes, there should have been gator patrols to capture and or kill all gators on Disney property. To avoid a lawsuit? No. To avoid a needless death! That is simply the decent human thing to do! Now if your using your property a wilderness area where people are paying to see wild dangerous animals, kind of alike a Jurassic Park sort of deal, then fine. Let the gators roam free. But if you are pushing this as a family friendly park, then do your freaking part to make it actually family friendly!

    Obvious guy says "Because Disney portrays itself as a family friendly park and a family friendly park rids itself of dangerous pests." Really this isn't that hard. Disney could have been alligator free if they wanted to be. All it would require is to have nightly hunts of all of the gators. Kill or trap and relocate everyone on site. Your house can be rat and roach free if you are willing to spend the money to make and keep them rat and roach free. The ponds on your property can be gator free if you are willing to spend the money to make and keep them gator free. Disney was warned about the gators and they decided to call them "pets." Further the law says if you know you have dangerous animals on your property and you are inviting people on your property you have a duty to warn them about the dangerous animals. :rolleyes: Because there are bodies of water all over Florida that do NOT have gators in them! Here is a general true statement. There is un-exploded ordinance from WW I and WW II all over France. That doesn't mean you should expect to step on a shell or a landmine whenever you are walking in a park in France. If the landowner is made aware of un-exploded ordinance he should take the proper steps to remove the ordinance and in the meantime warn people that it's there.

    Cool. Rule your household as you see fit. That's what all people should do. But the Sabbath is not Sunday. It just isn't. Maybe TER will chime in on this, but the Christian historical record is clear. Christians did not believe the Sabbath was changed to Sunday. At some point, TER would say since the apostles but I would say much later, the "Sabbath" and "the Lord's Day" were both kept. Then for the "official" church the Sabbath was by in large phased out. So here again we have a problem with applying what you feel is morally right to the larger civil society. So the government enforce the sanctity of Sabbath especially when most Christians are confused as to which day it is?

    Asking "What does God say about X" and "Should X be criminalized" are two different things. What does God say about those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit? Worst possible sin. What did Jesus say about the Samaritan village that was actively taking steps in that direction? Shake the dust off your feet and move on. You and other theocrats are trying to live under the old testament and the new testament at the same time. Jesus called that putting new wine in old wineskins. All you do is ruin both. Look at the misinterpretation of Deuteronomy 22 by Christian Liberty early in this thread. He has to misinterpret the old testament in order for his cockamamie theory not to seem totally abhorrent. Rape victims are married to their rapists and if they get married again to someone else they have committed adultery and should be stoned. That is the logical conclusion of the steps Christian Liberty takes to get to his idea of criminalizing prostitution. In order to get around that, he changed the clear meaning of Deut 22 from rape of a virgin to seduction of a virgin. And now that I've busted him on it, he won't reply because he knows he's wrong. But that is the problem in general with the way you, he, and to a much lesser extent Sola_Fide, approach the old testament. You do it without any regards to context or to the later words of Jesus. Oh you apply the new testament (badly IMO) when there are parts of the OT that you personally don't believe (remember the Sabbath), but if it's something that affects someone else? The NT doesn't matter. Again go back to Deuteronomy 22. It clearly says the "punishment" for a man who rapes a virgin is that he must marry her and cannot divorce her. It says nothing about killing the man. It says nothing about putting the man in prison. And it says nothing about the age of the rape victim. Would you really apply that standard in 2016? A man rapes a 15 year old girl who is still a virgin and you say "Well God said he has to marry her so I guess they have to get married?" Really?

    That is a ridiculous construction of the English language. What you are wanting to say, but failing to do so because Trump didn't say what you want him to say, is this. "I want to lower taxes from 40% to 25%. Now, my tax reduction plan may go up after negotations to somewhere around 30%, but the taxes will go down in the end." If taxes are at 40% and Trump wants them to be at 25% and they end up at 30% they did NOT go up! Really dannno, you're being disingenuous and downright silly.

    Ummm....I didn't say Alex Jones reversed on the 2nd amendment. I said Alex Jones had dropped the "false flag" charge on the most recent terror attacks. Donald Trump has done the reversal on the 2nd amendment. In response to the Orlando bombing Paul Joseph Watson specifically said "I'm not saying this was a government false flag. It was most likely a cell. A cell of ISIS jihadists." Really? Edit: And here's the video. Start at about 2 minutes in. I will try to find the video where Alex Jones says the San Bernidino shooter did it because she "Hates us for our blondes."

    Sorry, but there's no context where "Taxes will go up after negotiation" equals "Taxes will go down, but not as much as I want them too." No. This came up months before the interview. If you think it just came up several weeks ago then you haven't been paying attention. Here's an article from August 2015! http://money.cnn.com/2015/08/27/news/economy/donald-trump-economy-tax-plan/ So Trump had plenty of time to come up with his "clarification" before the Stephanopolous interview but he didn't. Don't let Stephan Molyneaux do all your fact checking for you.

    And Trump's current statements about supporting the use of eminent domain for private business? Is it fair to use that against someone gunning to be POTUS? That is current advocation of crony capitalism. And the issue isn't merely whether a politician is "bought or sold." I don't think Dick Cheney was owned by anyone. I think he was one of the puppet masters.

    Bullshit. To any person of reasonable intelligence saying taxes will go up does not mean "Taxes will go down but not as much as I want them to." Further this allegation that he wanted taxes to go up on the rich was made months before the Stephanopolous video! He had months to get his shit together and come up with a coherent answer! The fact that he did not do this proves to a reasonable person that isn't trying to carry Trump water that he's full of shit! You want to believe whatever Kool-Aid Trump is selling, go right ahead. But you're only making an ass of yourself by blaming others for taking the man at his word. And note, I've never called Trump a racist. So I'm not someone who's just looking to attack Trump on whatever he says. That said, Trump's statement about the judge not being fair because he's "Mexican" was a racist statement. And it was an unnecessary one. He could have said "This judge doesn't like me because of my stance on immigration" and been done with it. Trump's "Look over there at my black supporter" was just plain stupid. Like seriously WTF? His campaign spokesman, Katrina Pierson, is black. He got Ben Carson to endorse him even though he treated Carson worse than dirt and Ben Carson is black. Why point out the token black in total stereotypical fashion? And guess what? Hillary Clinton is straight up racist with her "superpredator" comments and her racist "colored people's time" joke. So they both suck. Sometimes I wonder if Trump is seriously doing what he's doing simply to throw the election to Hillary. Alex Jones suggested that before he became a Trump cheerleader. And finally, I want Hillary to lose. I think she would be terrible on guns among other things. But then Trump comes and channels his inner Barack Obama/Rahm Emannuel (who he donated $10,000 to) and says he wants to keep people on the no fly list from getting guns? And so far I haven't hear the Trump "clarification" on that one. You want to buy Trump's BS go right ahead. But others who aren't are not necessarily Trump haters. We just aren't willing to put our brains in neutral and pretend Trump hasn't said what he has said.

    Again THAT BULL FECES CLARIFICATION DID NOT COME IN THAT INTERVIEW! Now if you think it did come in that interview, post a clip from that interview or STFU already! Seriously, it's crap like this that makes me think Trump supporters are mental. Anybody can come up with "clarification" after the fact to "fix" a position he now knows is unpopular! I'm not "hearing what I want to hear." I'm hearing what the man actually said. :rolleyes: Did I post a video about Trump and racists? Nope. I posted a video of Trump unequivocally stating that after the negotiations with the democrats taxes on the wealthy would go up! Trump should have given your explanation to Stephanopolous when he got the question. He had to know such a question would come up eventually. Instead his excuse to Stephanopolous was that taxes going up would be the result of negotiation. Later he came up with the "Well they will go up from where I'm trying to get them to go down." WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T HE JUST SAY THEY WILL GO DOWN BUT NOT AS MUCH AS I WANT THEM TO? I'll tell you why. Because he's lying his ass off. He's not stupid. He thinks you are! It's like his friend Bill Clinton saying "It depends on what the meaning of the word is is." These elites, and yes Trump is one of the elites despite the fact that he convinces he supporters that he's not, count on the fact that as long as they are unclear enough in what they say they can get away with saying anything.

    You and everyone else knows your argument is totally irrelevant. According to the "gun grabbers" people who "stockpile guns" are more likely to become mass shooters. So whether there are more people buying guns or more gun owners stockpiling guns there should be an corresponding increase in gun homicides. Instead there's been a decrease.

    Nope. That's Trump's lie that he concocted to fool gullible people like YOU! Again, Trump did not say "Taxes on the wealthy will go up from the cuts I'm proposing." Trump said "Taxes on the wealth will go up when we get done negotiating." I'm not "hearing what I want to hear." I'm hearing what is said! Pull your head out of your rear and think! Stephanopolis gave Trump multiple opportunities to clarify his remarks. Trump didn't come up with is "Well taxes will go up from the amount I cut them" bullshit until some time after that video.

    Dannno...sorry but you are wrong on this. What Trump actually said about taxes on the wealthy is "In my plan they go down but by the time they are negotiated (with the democrats) they'll go up." He did not say "They'll be higher than cuts I'm making." Please watch. Here's the truth about Donald Trump. He makes all sorts of completely contradictory statements about taxes, immigration, gun control whatever. And then people pick and choose what they want to believe.

    And I saw Trump do the same crap to Rand Paul....and to Ben Carson....and to Ted Cruz. And I saw people here lapping up Trump's "Ted Cruz is a secret adulterer" dog feces coming from Trump's buddies at the National Enquirer as if it was being spoken by God himself. And I see people still pushing the bullshit Trump line that Rand Paul supported amnesty, which he didn't, while ignoring the fact that Trump's "deport them all but bring back the good ones" is touchback amnesty. Sorry, but I'm still pissed. That said, yeah I'd rather have Trump than Hillary. So....why did Trump spend millions attacking good republicans but now all of a sudden he needs 100K? (Most likely much much more.) If Trump has 10 billion, and if he was willing to spend 50 million to make sure that someone like Paul, Cruz or Carson couldn't be the one to take out Hillary, can't he spend another 50 million to...I dunno...take out Hillary?

    Pass judgment as in saying "Ewww" or saying "That's wrong" or "that's a sin" or pass judgment as in saying "Time him and the animal up while I find some large stones?" Again I point you and Christian Liberty to the Samaritan village. They were rejecting God in the flesh! Yet when Jesus was asked to send down fire He declined and said he did not come to destroy but to save.

    You know, I forgot about Hosea. The fact that God told Hosea to marry a known prostitute shows that either God was telling Hosea to commit adultery or the "Sex = automatic marriage" that Sola_Fide depended on for his "rape = marriage" thesis and Christian Liberty is depending on for his "a prostitute is married to her first client" thesis is a total fallacy.

Either he's not serious about beating Hillary or his pockets aren't as deep as we thought or a combination of both.

Political / Activist Bio:
Ron Paul 2012: Donated ~$1800. I purchased lit from the campaign and distributed it among Ron Paul supporters for handing out. I knocked on doors handing out lit to produce votes for Ron Paul in the primary. I recruited delegates for the 6th district and state conventions to send liberty minded folks to the RNC - got a dozen signed up on election day alone. I made dozens of phone calls into the 9th congressional district (three separate localities) to recruit district and state convention delegates to support liberty minded RNC delegates.

Karen Kwiatkowski 2012: I served as a volunteer coordinator for the southern part of Virginia's 6th CD (Roanoke City, Roanoke County, Botetourt County). I initiated and served as the data manager for the campaign. I led the acquisition of voter data, wrote the SQL scripts for walk lists, phone lists, and mailing lists. I wrote the PHP front end for the campaign's Phone-from-home system. I coordinated volunteer activities in the southern part of the district and personally knocked doors and phone banked. None of my positions were paid staff positions. I took four days off for GOTV efforts (Th, F, M, Tu) and helped with district-wide GOTV.

GOP 2012-2014: I served on the Republican Party City* Committee for a few years including a brief tenure as the Committee Treasurer. I have served as chairman of the unit's bylaws committee, precinct organization committee, and resolutions committee. I have served as the chair of the nominations and credentials committees during mass meetings.

*Cities in Virginia have the same standing as Counties. There is no overlapping jurisdiction. A city chair is the equivalent of a county chair. A city resident is not a county resident.

Rand Paul 2016: Served as 6th district co-captain for ballot access petitions. Organized events and directed volunteers when they were willing (heh). Also collected many myself at various events. Rand is on the Virginia ballot.

Other: lots of local and State stuff that doesn't fit the RPF activist paradigm. Contributed <$100 to many liberty candidates, including forum members Massie and Kellogg.
