Don't Touch That Dial

That doesn't really have any meaning anymore, does it? Don't touch that remote. How's that?

Switching TV channels ended in murder

Please notice she was stabbed 11 times. It's a good thing guns are banned in Norway.

Hard To Understand

It looks like Norway wants to compete with the United States of the Offended for "Most Frivolous Lawsuit": Lecturer acquitted for erection

Sent By God

He can't stop war. He can do nothing about the crime problem. The PLO has Him stymied and He can't find Saddam or Bin Laden. And even He doesn't understand the French, but He can send someone to teach you how to dress with style. So pay attention!

"We're doing the Lord's work," he believes. "I'm here to be his servant."

'Queer Eye' phenomenon opening minds

Guess Who?

Genesis 16:11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

Even Harder To Understand

I was reading a commentary in the Osceola News-Gazette by Carl Hiaasen (columnist for the Miami Herald) called He was only following God’s orders — so he says and came across this paragraph:

"Ironically, Bush is a long-time opponent of abortion. He’s also a supporter of capital punishment. Being simultaneously pro-life and pro-death isn’t easy to explain, but plenty of conservatives — including the governor’s older brother — take that position."

Why is that so difficult to understand? On the one hand you have an innocent, defenseless, precious child and on the other you have a murderer. I'd say that's quite a difference. What does he think? If you are pro-life you should believe no one should ever die and if you are pro-death you believe every one should die regardless of whether they are guilty or innocent?

The same God who said Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill (which is actually Thou shalt do no murder, Matthew 19:18. The Hebrew word is Ratsach), also said Exodus 21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.

Even if you leave God out of the subject entirely the difference between taking an innocent life and capital punishment for murder is abundantly clear.
