Okay, simple enough question. In an effort to discuss a point made in another thread, I was told I was derailing the thread by asking about something said. What was said was misleading in my view, and not only was an anti-biblical sentiment expressed, a completely false charge was raised against a Law Enforcement Officer who apparently believes Romans 13 calls for Christians to be in subjection to the governing powers. It was implied he was condoning punching a pregnant woman in the stomach. What is interesting is the OP takes the time to list characteristics of propaganda, yet being called on the information being supplied is a no-no, lol. So here you go, here is the off topic response: How does that change whether what he said is correct or not? Are you saying that elected officials should not be allowed to have an opinion in regards to Scripture? You are saying that elected officials should be secular? Let me ask you this, Poncho, do you not approve of those in elected office agreeing with Scripture? Now what was that first rule of propaganda again? Oh, here it is: You are doing exactly what you rail against...shutting down conversation and censoring free speech. Or does that Sherriff not have that right in your interpretation of American policy based on interpretation of those documents which are relevant to our rights? Did the Sherriff establish Law that People have to obey police officers because that is God's will? Could you show me where he did that? Can you tell me if this... ...is representative of the man you are speaking about when you say this? I looked twice at the link and I found nothing concerning this fellow advocating, or even mentioning a pregnant woman being punched in the belly. Here is another characteristic of propaganda: it always distorts the truth so it's agenda is served. This one was missing from the list. It's okay, Poncho, you can look at it as derailing the thread. I see it as a matter of discussion. It is absurd to vilify this Sherriff because he happens to believe the Bible. The kind of Separation of Church and State you seem to be vying for is a liberal fight. Those in Law enforcement who believe God's Word to be the rule for our lives are less likely to engage in the actions of police officers who do questionable acts, such as punching a pregnant woman. Now, if we can just get all of you propagandists into the Word of God, and out of the newslines, we might see a kinder, gentler Police Force. Now who is it again, that is contributing to America's road to Fascism? God bless. The secular world has a problem, summed up in the lyrics "Here comes the new boss...same as the old boss." So here is the thread requested, look forward to the response. God bless.
