  1. Some others, paraphrased Truly I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven The early church sold their possessions and distributed to those who had need Bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ Whoever is generous with the poor lends to the Lord, and he will be repaid for his deed If you would be perfect, go, sell everything you have, give to the poor, and follow me True faith is helping widows and orphans in their time of need I mean, you could do this all day. Above and beyond the individual verses is the narrative arc of scripture bending from a rigid, law based system to being fulfilled in Jesus who told us that the two greatest commandments were to love him and love other people. The bible is badly misused by evangelicals. It makes me sad. And probably the baby Jesus too.
  2. More like a lobster in a pot that didn't notice as the temperature got raised one degree at a time
  3. If we think that sexism is only a them problem then we as progressives are blind. Progressive men have been in the same patriarchy our entire lives that the conservatives have been, and it's just as normalized for us. I've got a few female friends who hold elected office as democrats. We've all got a long way to go. If you're a cis-het protestant white dude who calls himself a progressive, you should be terrified about being the gender version of MLK's white moderate. It's a very different world with very different standards for women.
  4. Oh, and thanks for the memories Uncle Joe. I wish you were president right now, but this ain't a good look.
  5. Looks like it can be read one of two ways. Why don't we ask him for clarification instead of assuming one way or the other?
  6. You know, you're right. Somehow we got to the point where Jeff Flake is the guy with the strongest backbone in the Republican party.
  7. I haven't kept up with the last 12 hours of this thread, and I'm sure someone's said this already, but if the Mueller report exonerated Trump, that's what we'd be seeing. The fact that we are seeing what Barr had to say means there's stuff in there they don't want us to know.
  8. Depends on what happens from here. Mueller is smart. Wouldn't surprise me if he felt the house intelligence committee or a state was a better entity than the SCO to deal with people that close to the president. This isn't over. Not even close. We haven't even seen the report. Claiming victory at this point is silly.
  9. I don't know, I'm really looking forward to watching my kids find their way. Pretty happy I don't have to worry about wife, house, school, etc. My career hasn't gone as I'd have hoped, but that gives me a chance to look forward to a new chapter. I've got a hobby outside of work that I'm passionate about and looking forward to spending my free time getting better at also. I turn 40 this year. My 30's were way better than my 20's, and I'm optimistic my 40's will be another improvement.
  10. Yup. See also: voting. We make it easier to own a killing machine than we do to participate in our democracy.
  11. We elected an internet troll to be the president and this is the bull#### you're worried about?
  12. other than the fact that this argument is resorting to being ridiculous, I don't have any problem with registering my kitchen knives.
