Open threadishness

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Many thanks to The Southern Dem for compiling the list of volunteers to manage our open threads. Here's what we have:

Monday - Kirk
Tuesday - Screwy and the mountain folks
Wednesday - Robert
Thursday - Sand hills & coast (Stan, Mo, Thomas, Lcloud)
Friday - Anglico's Weekend Woundup.
Saturday and Sunday - Whoever is out and about when the lights come on.

Folks seem to want open threads posted pretty regularly, so if there have been six entries front-paged since the last open thread, it's probably time for a new one. Administrators and front-pagers will bump open threads to the front as soon as we see them.

Have fun!

Woo Hoo!

Open thread goodness. Finally leaving to take mom lunch and some other necessities.

I love the new schedule. Coolness as my 13-yr-old would say.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Calling all Sandhillers

Hope you're ready to contribute on Thursdays. SPLib, Lovex7....that means you too! My son says "Cool Peas and Carrots"

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Nice Threads...

Tuesday is my absolute busiest work day of the week, but I'll do my level best to ensure that the people's right to openly thread is not violated through malice or negligence...

The following is the text of an Action Alert posted late last night by Called2Action about a CNN show tonight:

Called2Action on CNN Thursday night

Friends,

There is a case making its way through the NC court system involving a Muslim woman in Greensboro who wanted to be sworn in for a court proceeding using a Qur'an instead of the Bible. The Judge denied her request and the North Carolina chapter of the ACLU filed suit. The suit was dismissed, but two weeks ago it was given new life by an appeals court. This is the subject of my interview with CNN.

The interview will air on tomorrow nights broadcast of Paula Zahn, Now which appears on CNN from 8:00-9:00pm EST. Please pray that the editing will be fair and that God will be glorified.

This topic will be receiving more national attention because a liberal state senator from the Chapel Hill area (Eleanor Kinnaird) just put forth a bill that includes the following language:

...first require the party sworn to place the party's hand upon the Bible or any text sacred to the party's religious faith. If appropriate to the person's religious faith, the words "so help me God" may be deleted.

Religious faiths could include Satanism, Wicca, Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Scientology, etc. Many of the "sacred text's" related to these various faiths run in complete contradiction to our way of governance, not to mention the Judeo-Christian underpinnings of this nation. This is just another battle in the larger war to remove all things Christian from our public life.

We will keep you informed as this case moves forward.

In His Service,

Steve Noble

Ah to be born with a name that is an oxymoron. The theocrats will stop at nothing.

I really don't get this . . .

What is the purpose of having a witness swear an oath on a Bible? Is it not to have some assurance that the witness will tell the truth? If the person is not a Christian, how is that purpose accomplished by having them put their hand on a book that means nothing to them? Why does it not make more sense to use a book that means something to the person doing the swearing?

Or why don't we just solve the problem by having witnesses affirm that they will tell the truth, under penalty of perjury? No Bible or sacred text necessary.

Makes sense

If a person's word isn't good enough on his or her own, it won't be any better with your hand pressed against something "sacred".

This irks me; it's people like Noble who give a lot of us a bad name! The "Judeo-Christian underpinnings" of our nation? Like tolerance? Like religious freedom, or the freedom NOT to be religious? Like separation of church and state? Those underpinnings?

Ahem - If I May -

"Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old times, `Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths.
But I say unto you, swear not at all: neither by Heaven, for it is God's throne;
nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; neither by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
But let your communication be `yea, yea' or `nay, nay'; for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil."

Matt: 33-37

Darn that Gutenberg anyway. ;)

May Who be glorified?

Please pray that the editing will be fair and that God will be glorified.

What makes these people think that they have a lock on God?

Seriously.

How small is their God that He has no room for

Religious faiths (that)could include Satanism, Wicca, Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Scientology, etc?

If I can conceive of a world where all of these philosophies can coexist - does that make me bigger than their God? (I know, I know - blasphemy. But still. These people need to get a grip.) If God is Almighty, I imagine He can fight His own battles.

CNN

"Keep the Faith"

CNN

ignored what seems to be major news out of Palestine in favor of Wolf Blitzer asking Sanjay Gupta:"These paramedics who were called to the scene: are they qualified? Are they trained??"

Are they trained? No, Wolf, they're not. That's why they get to drive the big car with the lights on top.

(Yes, the link is from CNN.com. They have it on the web, but they ignored on the tube for hours today while they blathered on about Anna Nicole. I'm sorry for her death, truly. But after the initial report, it's not news.
