Yes, happy pagan spring holiday to all. I'm not sure why you're celebrating it, Fellows. Doesn't seem very Christian to celebrate a pagan festival.

Yes, it is sort of like Democrats voting that Peace prize winning warmonger into office who keeps torture centers open, and mindlessly invades countries for their oil while letting gas at home head over four dollars and rapidly climb toward five.

Seems like a "tea party argument". That may have been what it used to be, but things have changed, whether you like it or not.

Happy easter to you all. He is risen indeed!

Remember if anyone doubts the claims of Jesus, they are just hateful birthers.

Only trumpetman can turn a little playful religious jabbing into full-on partisan nonsense.

It wasn't very playful. Don't be a douche.

I love all you folks! BR holds a special place in my heart as I find his stubborn tenacity a quality (don't tell anyone)..

But I wanted to share this thought today which is not my own but one in which I am honored to endorse and agree with completely:

"Good Friday is the mirror held up by Jesus so that we can see ourselves in all our stark reality, and then it turns us to that cross and to his eyes and we hear these words, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." That's us! And so we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves. We see in that cross a love so amazing so divine that it loves us even when we turn away from it, or spurn it, or crucify it. There is no faith in Jesus without understanding that on the cross we see into the heart of God and find it filled with mercy for the sinner whoever he or she may be."

II Corinthians 5: 17-20

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting peoples sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christs ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christs behalf: Be reconciled to God.

"At least 24 Filipinos were nailed to crosses to re-enact Jesus Christ's suffering in a Good Friday rite rejected by Catholic church leaders but witnessed by throngs of believers and thousands of tourists.

Ruben Enaje, a 50-year-old sign painter, screamed in pain as villagers dressed as Roman centurions hammered four-inch stainless steel nails through his palms and set him aloft on a cross under a brutal sun in San Pedro Cutud in Pampanga.

It was Enaje's 25th crucifixion. He says surviving nearly unscathed when he fell from a three-story building in 1985 prompted him to observe the rite."

It's Good Friday ... I thought they were celebrating the lynch-mob that crucified an innocent man.

That lynch mob was working exactly according to God's plan.

Happy Easter, Fellowship. If your beliefs give you and your family peace, joy and prosperity, without harming anyone whose beliefs might be different, then that's perfectly OK by me. Are you going to the Sunrise Service? Those springtime Texas sunrises must be gorgeous! All the best to you, and I mean that... in my hea-a-art.

Thanks tonton! I hope you and your family have a Happy Easter as well. I will not be at a sunrise service but my mom and her husband will be coming over to see the family and we will attend Church together later on to return to the house for a nice meal together.

May each of us have thankful hearts for all that we have been given!

Be Blessed!

You disgraceful hyppocrite.....

Even I've been out worshipping Jesus, on my bike and during those 60 miles of my passion, Jesus reached out to me and left me somewhat redder in the face and arms than normal.

I hear you can get a block for that, something like that it reduces a multitude of lame evangelical comments into a single one by a factor of 50.

Im smearing it all over my screen as soon as I post.
