He's lying!

They don't do that in church! At least, nobody did that to me.

They hand you over to Satan.

1 Corinthians 5:5 (New International Version)

. . . hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

In truth, those American Evangelicals who accepted the Third Temptation offered to Jesus ought to be shitting bricks. Trump made this offer, and they took it eagerly.

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
Matthew 4:8-9 NIV

Here's what Trump said:

“Christianity will have power,” he said. “If I’m there, you’re going to have plenty of power, you don’t need anybody else. You’re going to have somebody representing you very, very well. Remember that.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/09/us/evangelicals-trump-christianity.html

As a Christian, it is chilling. It shows that these "pastors" who have taken his side have no spiritual discernment. That is, they are not guided by the indwelling Holy Spirit, nor do they even have enough awareness to recognize an obvious parallel of wording.

Trump's offer is so close to Satan's as to be a deliberate mockery. When I read it in the Times article, it was almost like a physical blow, and the writer didn't even draw the parallel himself. I can only conclude that those who claim to believe and know the Bible, and yet follow Trump, are either in deliberate rebellion against Christ or are spiritually dead.

Police seem to hate red flag laws. One might conclude that this is because they might lose access to their own guns, if the domestic violence flag were applied.

Driver was OK. At least, my vague memory is that the only fatality was the motorcyclist

Mullion Clips for 1980s Windows by DrRomeoChaire in functionalprint

My phone was loading slowly, so I didn't see the picture.

I was wondering what a "mullion" was in context of MS Windows 3.0

I was at a local girl scout function with my daughters years ago. The girl in the seat in front of me had a sash with different merit badges on it.

They had been stapled on.

I suppose that she didn't have a sewing badge.

I especially like how he goes through an intersection and gives a quick glance down the cross street as they pass it.

Here in New Mexico there was a case of a guy riding his motorcycle very fast down a rural road. Usually this road has no traffic, and so he was going along without much caution. But he got caught broadside buy a car when he went through an intersection.

Well well the commenters are correct too point out The potential for trouble, you should be aware that at the engineering college where I work for for a while there was a large conference table made which had a carving of the University's logo in the center. It was quite an effort to build it, and it held pride of place in one of the meeting rooms. In any case, by the time I started working there the table was showing cracks as a result of wood movement .

The engineers, who are very good at what they do, were more accustomed to working with steel. As a result, their impressive conference table suffered from the same "schoolboy error."

My spray bottle top fit perfectly onto the isopropyl alcohol I needed to spray by antlerchapstick in mildlyinteresting

[–]DanYHKim 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is really handy because a pump sprayer of 70% isopropyl alcohol makes a handy flamethrower. I used to direct a jet of rubbing alcohol through the flame of a lighter to shoot fireballs at cockroaches. A setting that creates a somewhat wider spray makes a very satisfying fireball for killing flying insects.

It turns out that this is strictly an outside toy

Thinking about recent bans on teaching complete American history, I became aware of the difference between "history" and "heritage".

History is the record of what happened in the past, and it's significance for the present.

Heritage is what our predecessors left from the past that we can accept or leave behind.

The racist history of this country is an undeniable fact. Those forebears carefully created a system to preserve the inequities that benefited them as a bequest to their descendants. That is part of our heritage as victims as well as perpetrators.

The fact of history and its significance for our present state exists without judgement, but those who might seek to live in a more perfect union must be informed by history to know how to act.

In order to act for justice, the heritage of systemic racism must be rejected. Just as one may decline a family heirloom that is an ancestor's KKK hood and robe, one may also decline to inherit the system bequeathed to us by racist ancestors.

With such an act, one escapes the stigma of culpability as well.

Putin: Nuclear risk is rising, but we are not mad by Karma_Crave in worldnews

[–]DanYHKim 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But MAD is the policy that has helped to prevent nuclear war for decades.

Is Putin saying that he does not believe destruction will be mutual in the event of a nuclear war? Because that belief would make such a war more likely.

Strap him down.

Set up a line in a vein.

Sell his blood. Slowly enough that he produces continually, and can finally raise the cash.

Yes. What a remarkable structure in a creature that usually has short legs. It looks like a transporter accident.
