In Cash We Trust

Planned Parenthood

Actually, UnPlanned Parenthood.
Or, Planned UnParenthood.

Should the Police enforce
the Ten Commandments?

Why? For religious reasons?
I thought the idea was that you should want to be good.

For civic reasons? One of the constraints is that it becomes impractical to have more than 2 to 3% of the population in jail at any one time. The laws need to conform to the world's priorities: justice without fanacticism. The police are not out to change to world, as the socialists and the Panthers have noted. Mostly live and let live, with the occasional exception.

If My people
who are called by My name

will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

And ye shall know that I am the LORD when I have wrought with you for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD. Ez 20:44
