    Progressives and Berniebros already have a candidate tailor made for them, Jill Stein.

    Definitions of terms are desperately needed here, both of "mainline" and of "fundamentalist." By some definitions only baptists and pentecostals would be fundamentalists, by other definitions fundamentalists would refer to a particular type of baptist, by still other definitions virtually any Protestant that actually believes in Biblical inerrancy would be a fundamentalist. What exactly we're talking about desperately matters here. Whether by "mainline" you mean conservative Presbyterians, Lutherans and Anglicans or only the liberal ones is also of desperate importance. For the sake of argument I'm going to define some terms. Perhaps my definitions are arbitrary, but they're no more arbitrary than anything else, so here goes. "evangelical" refers to baptists and pentecostals and "non-denominationals".... basically any conservative credobaptists. "fundamentalist" I'm going to ignore because its too vague for me to really define, I'm just going to use "evangelical." HU and I and any other Presbyterians, Lutherans, or Anglicans are conservative magisterial Protestants. "mainline" is usually used to refer to liberal "magisterials" so I'll just define it that way, that's stuff like the PCUSA, ELCA, and Episcopal Church. Now with that out of the way, I'd certainly agree that evangelicals are much more often on the receiving end of Ronin's style of argument from liberal magisterials. Evangelicals at least try to read Paul and they accept him as authoritative on principle even if I think they interpret him badly in practice. By contrast liberal magisterials (and liberal Catholics) certainly tend to do the type of thing Ronin is doing, to varying degrees. And when evangelicals are involved in that contest with liberal magisterials (or liberal Catholics) the evangelicals are going to be the ones to defend Paul. I'm certainly willing to grant this. But when conservative magisterials become involved it gets more complicated. In general conservative magisterials are MUCH more concerned with confessions and things like ecunemical councils, we don't see them as infallible but we see them as subordinate authorities, which to some would seem "more catholic" in that way. Evangelicals tend to have a lower view of the historic church and how much it got right than conservative magisterials. In our minds this winds up being "Jesus is cool but screw the church" to some extent.... yes that's crude and vague but its a tendency we see to ignore historic precedent in exchange for the innovations of the moment. Of course to a point all Protestants agree that the individual's interpretation gets some weight (as we reject the idea that the "catholic church" is infallible) but we tend to have a very high bar for making clean breaks with history, whereas baptists are more comfortable with doing that as long as they think they agree with Paul.

    An old thread, and very old video but I'm amazed that still so many people aren't getting what keeps happening, every four years. I think this video (a clip of a speech by Ed Griffin) is still relevant... except for the "vote Ron Paul" part. :(

    Evangelicals, especially the Biblically literate ones, overwhelmingly despise Trump. But they won't back someone who wants to take away their freedom, especially as attacks on religious liberty intensify.

    Yeah, she is blood-thirsty and seems to actually get excited just thinking about the deaths of millions. It is insane to me that any "progressive" would support her. Apparently they're ok with a wall street puppet and total warmonger, as long as there's a D by the name.

    Bern Victims reminded me of Paulians during his POTUS runs. They were so hopeful and enthusiastic! I have felt so bad for them this whole primary erection season because I knew it was going to end in tears for them. Yes, Ron has principles. Bernie probably just wants to stay alive.

    Question: Does Winona Ryder chew the scenery like that in all 8 episodes? She takes me out of every scene, and I love her! Also? Streep definitely wore it better. 2. Winona Ryder wanted Joyce's hair to resemble Meryl Streep's in 'Silkwood'

    No, I'm looking for a candidate who has a proven record of keeping his vows, and fidelity in marriage is one of the best ways to verify that. Sure, many people can keep their affairs secret for a little while, but in the providence of God, their affairs are usually found out, just as it has happened numerous times to politicians (such as Mark Sanford). My point to Smitty was that I don't need to delve deeply into the sexual lives of politicians in order to know whether or not they've been faithful to their vows. If a person is a habitual cheater, then that behavior has a way of surfacing itself, especially through their political duties. It's almost inevitable. But my original point still stands: if a person (like Donald Trump) cannot keep his vows to the woman he claims to love with all of his heart, then what do you think he will do to strangers as a President? What you do in your private life reflects how you behave in your public life, especially with keeping one's word.

    It was a graveyard, Suz! Thank God my pool guy came that day (although it's time to let him go. I can do it myself). Thanks, presence! I read about how people have used 20 Mule Team Borax and mix it with some sugar and water and make a paste, or saturate cotton balls with it, and they eat it and it kills them off. I'll try it and let you know! I also saw orange oil and dawn, but that would stain my pavers (I am going to try it on weeds though, including the invasive and fugly Salt Cedar!).

    I'm using this on (I think) pavement ants. Not much help so far. They're under the patio pavers so maybe that's why. We did have a ton of dead flying ants in the pool a few days after I started using it so it's doing something. But the workers are legion and relentless. I've killed so many, and they just keep coming. I had no idea you can ingest it! I'm going to try it. Maybe it will help my broken foot to heal. Like donnay said, you do have to be careful not to breathe it into your lungs. My beloved aunt ended up with silicosis and lung cancer from the silica blowing around the family gravel pit where we spent so much time swimming. She's doing great though! It's not growing and the IV vit C therapy she's been doing since last fall has been very effective.

    Love Preacher! A friend told me to watch Stranger Things on netflix, if only because it totally nails the 80s. I'm going to give it a try today. She also recommended Masters of Sex awhile back and I'm on S2. I like it! I had zero sympathy for Masters until "Fight," but the hermaphrodite baby sl haunted me for days. Penny Dreadful ended well, though I'll miss it. I'm reading the very short and far too expensive comics to soften the blow.

    Oh. LOL. I get it now. I so rarely use the "visitor message" feature that I wasn't following you. You were talking to FF and not me. Makes perfect sense now. Carry on. As for what he was saying you weren't being consistent on, it was the fact that at first you said the Bible doesn't say have a relationship with Jesus (actually it does) and then you shifted to "The Bible doesn't say the gospel is have a relationship with Jesus" (It doesn't....but nobody on this board said it does). Why it's who hard for you to just admit that I don't know. If you are looking for exact language says that...well where does it say grace is irresistible?

    "Oh, the Bible is "bullshit"?" Nope. Are you implying that the only thing you have to contribute to threads are Bible quotes? Your non-Biblical observations (and there are many) coupled with your choice to use Bible quotes to derail threads (which I'm fairly sure was not the original intent of any of the authors OR the Divinity behind them) are what is bullshit. Get thee behind me, Satan, and get on my ignore.

    No, you're a troll because even though the entire thread topic is about questions, and the portion that was off topic was split off, you keep asking idiotic questions about why others in the thread weren't deleted (the posts were moved when they weren't germane to the discussion). You have a whole new thread to fertilize with your bullshit. Congratulations!
