God is pro-abortion

pro-choice, pro-death, let's say. So forget about what "God thinks".

Why is there animosity 30 years after Roe to the rational discussion of the timing of the recognition of personhood.

The demand that the government stay out of a woman's choice contradicts the demand that Roe must not be overturned.
The Supreme Court is the government.

Or, in Spanish, Colon.
from which we get: colony.

The Kingdom of God

Inside you, not outside you
Outside you is the Kingdom of Man,
or Satan.

Does the United States act like a Christian Nation?

If it is, it's an Old Testament kind of Christianity.
Pre-christian, with a tendency to dislike prophets.
The Buddists act like Christians, sort of.
Tibet might be a Christian nation.
Q: What, exactly, is a Christian Nation?
A: A country that has a lot of churches
that some people go to one day a week or so
for one hour, or so
and mostly check out clothing styles.
This approach would also make the US a Mallian Nation.
Maybe even a Pinkian Nation.

I never knew you

feed my sheep
The point is that people who feel themselves to be good,
to be followers of Christ even, of a sort,
should be aware of what He asked them to do
1. If you love me, keep my commands John 14:15
2. A new command I give you: love one another. John 13:34
Resulting in:
If you love me, love one another.

An example of how these two ideas work in practice, is given in an exchange with Peter. John 21:17
Who are His sheep? I don't believe you can know that.

Ignorance is an excuse

Father forgive them. They know not what they do.

you might pick a canvas more permanent than the world

Forget the underpants bomber

This is the important story.
Years in the making.

Energy Conservation

Conserving energy is critical to the nation's security.
Infra-red vision is the best way to identify energy leaks.
Once the war is over, we can use these units for weatherization.
