Re: Prayer: Listening, Talking, or Both?
It is amazing how much you quote and type means actually nothing. The rest is just recitation of assertions.
God has established things so that prayer, on the basis of redemption, changes the way a person looks at things. Prayer is not a matter of changing things externally, but one of working miracles in a person’s inner nature.
Where does the bible say this? Why should what this preacher has to say mean anything? Seems he was good at pithy sayings. So what?

Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do
One assumption, too, is that GOD has a better grasp of what morality should entail than do humans.
All you have and all you have ever had since you started spewing your rightwing christianist dogma is assumptions.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do
What assumptions is my life based on? What assumptions have I posted?
I think facts is a loaded term that you can manipulate. I prefer data and evidence. Data and evidence take me all the way. If something does not stand up to the data and evidence it is not relevant. I can remove it from consideration.
Wishful thinking is fun, but nothing to base a life on.

Why do you reopen topics just so you can get your racist, entitled white ass thumped again? Some sort of persecution complex?

As of July 1, it is potentially a felony statewide.
Tennessee made homeless camps a felony. Colorado is trying something else.

Re: Verification through experience
Your response indicates that you are as racist as I am charged to be.
Please explain.
vilify the white race for such an event in History.
I do not see how I vilified the white race. I vilified you. What event? You should know I have also been a huge recipient of white privilege in my life. It exists. Look around.

Re: Verification through experience
The Puerto Rico beach issue is very interesting. It is a manifestation of people power. The people of Puerto Rico have little to no political power. Any law or election in Puerto Rico can(it happens) be overturned by the US Congress and US Agencies. Because of this US corporations are the real political power in Puerto Rico. This is a way the people can express power. I have family members hitting the beach for these protests. Yes, Phat even though I am Puerto Rican I am still white.
It will be interesting to see where it leads. It may be the spark. Maybe from this, we can get true determination of the status of Puerto Rico.

Re: White entitlement
Trying to intimidate me by showing that you can search the internet and determine my real name. I figured there was some sort of forum rule about that, but if you want to play that game I can play it. What next? Are you going to dox me? BTW my name is not Brian.
First of all, I am NOT criticizing the poor.
Yeah you are.
And how dare you all accuse me of being entitled? I paid the payments on my apartment long before I inherited it.
The vast majority of people you criticize inherited nothing.
Yes, I am privileged as are you, Brian.
Probably. In different ways.
This is part of my privilege. In 1966 my father got a job in Scranton, PA. We were living near my maternal grandparents in MA at the time. In 1960 my parents moved there from NYC as they already had one child and another on the way and wanted a better life for their kids. My maternal family was stoic lower middle-class New Englanders.
When we moved to PA my parents could not find a place to live. At one point my parents were talking to a rental agent who told them they would like one area because they don't allow "n!$$qf$ and spics". Finally, they found someone that would rent to them. The house was located in the premier school district in the area. That is my privilege, because of hate and discrimination and the fact I am white I received an excellent education. That is my privilege.
If you want to continue to dox me? Go right ahead. We will see where the chips lay. Crawl back under your rock.

Re: White entitlement
I was just mad that you somehow knew that I had inherited my condo. It really went outside the protocol of EvC.
Where would Percy have gleaned this info if you had not stated it in the forum? So you respond to perceived breaches of protocol by escalating way out of proportion? Is it may be that you are embarrassed by your gross hypocrisy?
I am not a wealthy man, apart from my home being paid for, and I still have homeowner fees where I live
But no rent or mortgage payment. That is a nice privilege.
Oh yeah, go fuck yourself.
You are a hypocrite of the highest order. Hiding behind the veils of christianity just makes it more disgusting
