    Hopefuls Petition White House for Death Star Construction

    Catch on in the right channels, and this petition could skyrocket. It’s the sort of stimulus we can all believe in – not only a massive

    The Death Star in A New Hope boost to space exploration, engineering, and construction, but also a vital investment in the national and galactic security of our children’s future. I’m talking about building a death star.

    This petition, housed on whitehouse.gov’s “We the People” section, implores the government to do just that. It currently only has only 1,524 signatures, out of its goal of 25,000, so this vital call to action could be left floundering in the wilds of the Internet. Anyone who believes that America is the greatest nation in history, and should have the power to destroy entire planets at a whim, needs to remedy this immediately.

    (Reuters) – Egyptian police battled thousands of protesters outside President Mohamed Mursi’s palace in Cairo on Tuesday, prompting the Islamist leader to leave the building, presidency sources said.

  • Doug Z

    So when can we expect President Obama to give a speech and proclaim “Morsi has got to go”?

    From Reuters Jan 31 2011

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/01/31/us-egypt-israel-usa-idUSTRE70U53720110131

    “Obama on Sunday called for an “orderly transition” to democracy in Egypt, stopping short of calling on Mubarak to step down, but signaling that his days may be numbered.”

    “”Jordan and Saudi Arabia see the reactions in the West, how everyone is abandoning Mubarak, and this will have very serious implications,” Haaretz daily quoted one official as saying.”

    “”The question is, do we think Obama is reliable or not,” said an Israeli official, who declined to be named.

    “Right now it doesn’t look so. That is a question resonating across the region not just in Israel.”

    @Sam,

    Mormons consider themselves to be Christians. Muslims do not. I believe the Mormon acceptance of Joseph Smith as a prophet is at odds with the idea that the blood of Jesus is the culmination of prophecy and sacrifice, making both no longer needed. However, I admire the devotion of Mormons. Muslims limit their acceptance of Jesus as one in a line of prophecy that culminated in Muhammed. A Christian accepts that Jesus is the first manifestation of the Messiah. Gnostics believe that Jesus was the Messiah, that he was endowed with the power of God but was not God incarnate.

    These are some deep topics that we probably shouldn’t discuss here.

  • Doug Z

    President Barack Obama met with several MSNBC hosts this afternoon at the White House to discuss tax rates, according to Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery. The reporter wondered if an “MSNBC love fest” was going on at the White House.

    @Mark “Hannity’s numbers are basically on par where he was from Jan-Aug.”

    Not so, his key demo numbers have dropped off significantly.

    Here’s Jon Stewart’s take on the whole “Christianity is Not a Religion” debate.

    @DougZ

    Well, MSNBC did a much better job than Fox News in getting their candidate elected.

    Here’s what a born again Christian had to say about O’Reilly’s Christianity is Not a religion comments:

  • Ralph Hahn

    @TZCA: I was born and raised Roman Catholic but now consider myself a Spiritual Christian. To me, Christianity is a Faith. It’s the personal relationship of Jesus Christ and us, individually. Sometimes, and many times on this board, it is hard to show the same love that Jesus had shown tp us and continues to do so. But, Christianity is not a religion. It’s a Faith and a Way of Life. It need not be organized. Yes, I am a sinner. But, as Christians believe, we ask for His forgiveness and we are forgiven. Jesus was the only perfect person to walk the Earth. As I often say, I follow the Lord’s law through the Bible and not the Churches’ laws.

  • hmmm

    Wow MSNBC is still doing great and the election has been over for almost a month now. Looks like Fox News really does have some competition now.

  • TheBoss1

    Romney lost the election because he was a 1% elitist who dispared 47% of the American people. Americans do not like arrogant, pompous, and judgemental people. Romney rode out on the high horse than he rode in on. And, he needs to take a few of you with him.

    Thanks for sharing that. I liked reading it. I view Christianity as a Faith and not a religion, but that is because I associate a ‘religion’ with rituals and practices. As you stated, all that is required is the Lord’s law. I have a hard time seeing Christianity as a philosophy, but this doesn’t mean that this hasn’t been an aspect of an age-old debate; especially since philosophy is the search for truth, and study of Christianity and the message of Christ is, in essence, a search for truth. Christianity is so diverse compared to other Faith-systems (the variations in views of the Trinity, Divinity of Christ, end-time-prophecy, etc), that at the scholastic level (theology) the full umbrella of Christianity doesn’t fit well into any religious descriptor. I wouldn’t take Jon Stewart’s position as de terminatio on the subject.

    Republican opposition downs UN disability treaty

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Led by Republican opposition, the Senate on Tuesday rejected a United Nations treaty on the rights of the disabled that is modeled after the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act.

    With 38 Republicans casting “no” votes, the 61-38 vote fell five short of the two-thirds majority needed to ratify a treaty. The vote took place in an unusually solemn atmosphere, with senators sitting at their desks rather than milling around the podium. Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, looking frail and in a wheelchair, was in the chamber to support the treaty.

    The treaty, already signed by 155 nations and ratified by 126 countries, including Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia, states that nations should strive to assure that the disabled enjoy the same rights and fundamental freedoms as their fellow citizens. Republicans objected to taking up a treaty during the lame-duck session of the Congress and warned that the treaty could pose a threat to U.S. national sovereignty.

    TZCA, thank you for your posts on Christianity. You’re well versed. I also appreciate the rational way you discuss religion.

    I was raised a Catholic. As an adult I’ve done some studying at the Theologian Library at the Claremont Colleges in Claremont, California on comparative religions. I have several friends who are Mormons and I worked for a boss who was Mormon some years back. I learned about the religion through them. They are wonderful people. They’re very good-living people. That’s why I thought our country would benefit so much under a Mormon president like Mitt Romney. I know their core, their foundation is strong and well intended.

    I’ve also studied Islam. I did that after 9/11 to see why Islamists/some Muslims hate us so much. I didn’t study it to convert at all. And the more I know about it, the more I don’t like it as a religion. But I did want to know what has motivated the hatred of the West by Islamists. Of course, you can’t just study Islam without studying the Middle East and Southeast Asia. It’s a culture more than just a religion. But it’s a fascinating study.

    I will be gone for a few days. I’m taking my mother and her girlfriend to Las Vegas. They’re flying to New York. I hope you all have a great few days. And, Matt, I hope you’re feeling better. lol

  • Mark2

    You Christians are so funny.

    You guys can’t even make up your mind on whether Christianity is a religion or not.

    Saying that Christiany is nothing more than a philosophy is like admitting that Jesus was JUST a man who was a great thinker and moral teacher.

  • Mark2

    Since Christianity is just a philosophy, we should take away their tax exempt status.

    We should also change the term Freedom of Religion to Freedom of Philosophy, lol.

    So now that Christianity is no longer a Religion, I guess Islam is now the largest religion in the world.

  • TZCA

    Ugh, I don’t like shift changes. I can’t sleep.

    TZCA, thank you for your posts on Christianity….

    **********

    You’re welcome. I normally try to avoid God talk but I was trying to defend O’Reilly’s position, whether I agree or not.

    I wish I had the time to take a formal course on Islam. I’m mostly self-taught and I’ve read an English Quran. I felt it was missing something as compared to my topic studies, especially in regards to the convert-or-die stuff. I was later told by an Egyptian Christian that the version I was reading was missing several Suras. My ex-wife’s parents are Bahai’i and so I had some lively debate with them about Islam, Judaism, and Christianity.

    Have fun on your trip and be safe. :smile:

    @Saying that Christiany is nothing more than a philosophy is like admitting that Jesus was JUST a man who was a great thinker and moral teacher.

    AAAAAAAAGREE!!

    Now with Rev. bill-O the clown telling his flock of easily influential ppl saying that Christianity is not a Religion, we will see that stream of crap flow out of the mouths and keyboards of regular Fox viewers. It’s become more regular in recent days.

    So here we go….I’m not a religious man…..I’m a diet Christian or a Christian Light. BS!

    I respect and live faith, but do not need a perv like Bill-O or some Fox News goon try to define it for me or anyone. If you want a warped view of your faith, turn to the 700 club.
