“Since I find both candidates morally objectionable, I am back to the old-fashioned basis on which I have usually decided how to vote for my entire life: Whose policies are better? Do I agree more with Trump’s policies or with Clinton’s? …”
“ However, climate change is a totally different matter. There really are no “climate deniers.” Nobody denies that the climate changes; it does so all the time, for totally natural reasons. Moreover, it does so on multiple different time scales: annually, on an 11-year sunspot cycle, on a scale of 2/3 century due to the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, the Roman and Medieval Warm Periods, and so on to hundreds of thousands of years. There is nothing any of us can do about that except adapt to the ever-changing climate. …”
“The issue confronting those refusing compliance with the above policy is now extremely serious. They now have one year to adjust their local policies and actions so as to conform to the voted policy of the world church. This is a new thing in the Adventist ordination crisis. Those out of harmony with the voted decision of the world body will be expected to change their practices, or face the grave consequences of which our General Conference president has spoken in the past. …”
“Now, after seeing how the voting works again, many church members at all levels of the organization might increasingly think that their faithful tithing is being used to fund direct opposition to their values. …
Just as the NAD is in the process of reducing its tithe allocation to the GC, perhaps more church members will consider shifting their donating down to local, less dramatic Adventist entities. …”
“It began with the group’s founder, Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist who promoted sterilization and birth control to “weed out” human beings who the eugenics movement deemed “unfit.” Today, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S., killing approximately 320,000 unborn human lives every year. …”
“China was named the world’s top executioner in 2014, executing more people than the rest of the world combined. The country took this title even without ever disclosing just how many people have been executed. It is widely believed that thousands of people in China are secretly executed for their organs and that it’s been happening for decades. …
In some cases, the people are executed before their organs are harvested, but in other instances, organs are taken out one by one while they are still alive. …”
“Regardless of changes in party power, politicians don’t hold the REAL power in Washington. No, the sad fact is, the election has already been decided. And the winner is the banking industry, at the command of the Fed. The Republicans & Democrats have done nothing in a generation to stop the Fed & banking industry from launching us off the fiscal cliff. And neither will Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. …
In a monetary system where every dollar is created from debt, the system becomes a Ponzi scheme and only works until it collapses. This is illustrated throughout history, as every civilization and every paper currency has imploded under huge debt loads and a systemic lack of solvency. …”
“Hillary Clinton has been doing everything possible to present herself as Barack Obama II, but her husband apparently didn’t get the message. At a campaign event in Flint, Michigan this week, former President Bill Clinton took aim at Obama’s signature healthcare legislation. …
“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” said Clinton. “It’s the craziest thing in the world.” …”
“The government approved an arms trafficking program under Hillary Clinton’s leadership, hired Turi to get arms to Libyan rebels and then the Department of Justice prosecuted him for it.
Turi adviser Robert Stryk accused prosecutors of bringing the case against Turi in order to cover up Clinton’s mishandling of Libya. Clinton was secretary of state on Sept. 11, 2012, when jihadists mounted an attack on two American facilities in Benghazi, killing four Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. …”
“Hillary Clinton reiterated her promise to appoint judges to the Supreme Court who will support Roe vs. Wade — the terrible Supreme Court decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy for any reason. Roe has resulted in 59 million abortions on unborn babies over the last four and a half decades. …”
““The lewd comments, made over a decade ago and for which Mr. Trump has apologized, and which I, like everyone else, find repulsive, do not in the least change my intentions of voting for him, of urging others to do so, and of advising his campaign,” Pavone told LifeNews.com via email today. “The reason is simple: this presidential election is not about a choice between him and someone better; it’s between him and someone far worse.” …”
““We need someone who is honest and plays by the rules, because not paying taxes for years and years while the rest of us pay our fair share doesn’t make you smarter than the rest of us,” she said. “No, we need a president who will choose to do what’s best for the country, even when it doesn’t personally benefit them.” …
My Comment: Honest like Hillary? The woman who deleted 32,000 emails in order to hide what those emails had in them? The woman who enriched herself by accepting large donations from Wall Street? BTW, Trump paid no more taxes than required by law.
“Two years of local church outreach to a state prison in northern Brazil have resulted in the baptism of a third of its inmates and the opening of a Seventh-day Adventist church on its grounds.
Erton Köhler, president of the Adventist Church in South America, encouraged local church members to keep sharing the gospel wherever God leads during the church dedication at the prison in Bacabal, a city of 103,000 people in the Brazilian state of Maranhão. …”
“So abortion is contrary to the Declaration of Independence and represents a violation of fundamental rights. It is not an inherently religious matter, and those who oppose it are not trying to impose their “faith” on others. …
“What I can’t understand is with Hillary Clinton and now Senator Kaine at her side is able to support a practice like partial-birth abortion. … the very idea that a child that is almost born into the world could still have their life taken from them is just anathema to me.” …”
“While last week the recommended action from the office of the General Conference president was to dissolve the unions and attach them to the General Conference as missions, this week a rewritten “pastoral action” will propose giving the unions a year of grace and will appeal to them to repent of their actions. …”
My Comment: That is a great idea. I wish the same grace should be extended to the unborn. Actually, the unborn need only nine months of grace!
“Was Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton responsible for arming the very Islamic terrorists that committed the Benghazi terror attacks?
For her entire adult life, Clinton has made sure that other people paid for her mistakes, covered up her crimes, and always managed to get away scot-free. This week, her friends in President Barack Obama’s administration seem to have made another Clinton problem disappear.
Obama quietly shut down a criminal case that some critics say would have shown that Clinton’s actions as secretary of state resulted in arming the Islamic terrorists who attacked Benghazi. And they’ve sealed the records forever. …”
““You are hereby directed to remove all items which contain religious symbols, such as crosses, printed bibles, angels, bible verses, printed prayers, and biblical quotations from the common areas, hallways, classrooms, and office of East Lake Elementary School,” the edict read. …”
