Whoa! Isn't that in church? Are you saying a woman cannot own a store and employ men?

Unless I am shown otherwise it seems to me that women should not have authority over men.  How do your read it?

Bill, I must say that as a Christian, you have a real unchristian penchant for not answering questions. I've noticed that on other posts you've made, which is strange for one frequenting a discussion forum. I'll ask again as maybe you forgot it.  Are you saying a woman cannot own a store and employ men? Because if that's not talking about the church, then she can't have any authority over men. She can't be a teacher in school or college, she can't hire workers on her farm, she can't be a food inspector, she can't work at the DMV, she can't be a crossing guard,  she can't even own a corner store unless she employs only women. Can you address my question? Are you saying a woman cannot own a store and employ men?

Your question was, "how do I read it".  Well let's look at some things.

(1 Timothy 2:12)
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

Does that mean that a woman should be silent everywhere or just in the church? I think it obviously means that she should not teach men in the church. Not that she cannot teach men the English language, how to change a diaper or the Dewey Decibel System. I read it as "silent in the church," because nowhere else does god command women to be quiet and not talk. A woman is free to talk otherwise, as Christ and the disciples freely talked to women. You're not being consistent.

First of all, can the Republicans just stop saying stupid things? Then we might have a chance. Good grief, you would think an intelligent man would have enough sense not to say "Stuff happens" after a mass shooting in a school. Yeah, I know what he meant, but it's just not the right thing to say at this time and it's disturbing to me that a man running for president doesn't know that. Do I want to vote in a stupid man as President just because he holds my views?

And yet another non-thinking comment by Ben Carson yesterday causing a firestorm. He's just not the man who I want making life and death decisions in the white house. Even Jeb Bush doesn't say such dumb things, even if he agrees with him (which I do) because he's smart enough to know that's not going to go over well. Come on Republicans! You can't get into the white house if you keep shooting yourself in the foot everytime you open your mouth. Think before you talk!

The Republicans are cold-hearted money grubbing hypocritical Scribes and Pharisees, and the Democrats are Godless, narrow-minded Lawyers and Tax Collectors. Good people don't seem to run for office anymore and so I don't really want to vote for any of the crop this year. It's the lessor of several evils.

It was the moderates that were the political glue that held the people together, but now there is only heartless conservative reactionaries who think the solution for everything is either a big stick, money or less taxes, and blood sucking liberal leaches who seem hell bent on a Godless Sodom and Gomorrah society without family, morality or responsibility. It's like choosing between Satan or the Devil, in the end no matter which you choose you end up in the same place. For voting I would suggest you hold your nose, take some Tums, and pull the lever. But don't have any illusion that anything will change. Put your faith in God not politicians.

Does the stupidity of Ben Carson never end? And yet another non-thinking comment by Ben Carson yesterday causing another commotion. He's just not the man who anyone should want making life and death decisions in the white house. This time he was speaking against gun control and said that if the Jews were armed, they could have fought off the Nazis and that's why they took the guns away from them. It's as if this man doesn't realize that the Nazis were a giant war machine who would have went in and wiped them all out. They didn't need an excuse to wipe out 6 million, think how many they would have wiped out if they had an excuse. Personally, I would vote for any of the Republican candidates before Ben Carson because this man's thinking is from the stone age.

I say again, come on Republicans! Stop making the Democrats job easy. You can't get into the white house if you keep shooting yourself in the foot every single time you open your mouth. If Ben Carson gets the nomination, you might as well hand the job over to the Democrats on a silver platter.

It was the moderates that were the political glue that held the people together,

The moderates became extinct because the moderates never win. You have to be in either one camp or the other, conservative or liberal. Look at the recent example of conservative Republican speaker of the house, John Boehner. He resigned because of the pressure of the conservatives who didn't think that he was conservative enough. It's the same thing with liberals. Those Democrats in he south who were moderate are forced out because they are looked upon as not liberal enough. The whole thing is ridiculous and is the reason the country is always bickering and at a stalemate. As you say, it's now all about doing what the party wants, rather than doing what's right for the country. Sad but true.

>> Who should we send to Washington in 2016?

I would say Bernie Sanders!



Bernie Sanders?  Bernie is a died in the wool socialist, if not about as close as you can get. He makes Clinton look like she's from the far Right, and that's hard to do.


Quote
What? Did you assume God was a Republican?  ::)

The only party God is interested in is the Christian party. I think we can assume that 90 percent of politicians are unsaved. However, I believe that as Christians, allowed to vote,  we are given the responsibility to cast our votes for those to rule our nation who will do the most good. Although we are not of the world, we still have to live in it.

I figured that out while watching the debate the other night. Democrats nominate him, they will lose for sure. Like McGovern in  1972.

Carson has finally taken over the lead in the polls from trump, but Trump is still leading in this poll.


I can tell you this, if Carson is the Republican nominee, the Republicans can forget winning the Presidency.

Carson is a good Christian man, as opposed to Trump.

Please comment and you can change your vote.

Trump number one, and Rubio as the fallback candidate. Someone who tells it like it is.
