    IF, the Luciferians opened a Children's Hospital and cared for critically ill children "free" or at a greatly reduced price would there be objections to the Baptist Church you attend donating to support their work?

    Would you as a "follower" of Christ belittle or "mark" your neighbor or brother for supporting such group?


    Let now ask, the same question about the Jehovah's Witness or any other cult.

    How much "evil" associated with the group is too much, where is the line drawn?

    Two things:

    [1.] I don't know if St. Jude's Children's Hospital is purely a Catholic hospital. I do know that - as far as I could find - they purposefully do not do human embryonic stem cell research - that sounds like an anti-abortion stance to me which would be typical of a Catholic hospital.

    To me - I don't care that they have an association with Catholicism. Even if they don't and just bear the name "St. Jude's" because of Danny Thomas and his upbringing - I still don't care.

    They are saving children's lives. They are saving the sanity of parents. I'm good with that.

    [2.] What does it mean to "mark" someone? I used to get "marked" all the time by a certain poster at another forum that is now defunct. He was very fundamentalist and anytime he would assert something off-the-wall and I would show him scripture that clearly negated what he was teaching, he would only post these words to me (in red and all caps): "WOMAN, THOU ART MARKED!"

    I asked him what that meant and he would never tell me. After a couple of times of being "marked", I decided my words to him weren't making any difference to I gave up.

    Ms. ScarlettO, just for the record. I was not thinking of St. Judes when I posted my query. I was thinking of another group but more or less in generalities.

    Secondly on the "mark". I simply meant "shunned" or "identified as one against a percieved "good thing" et cetera.

    I chose "Children's Hospital" because I know we all have a soft spot for children and that soft spot might weigh more than "evils" for some.

    I tend to believe that if an angel of satan himself did "good of a great magnitude", "fulfilled a great need" ie. food during a famine, medicine in the midst of an pandemic, electricity in the aftermath of a Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) most would shun fellow believers that spoke down of that good that demon did, sort of a "worship" of that beast.
