“It’s the teaching of Islam that is not tolerant of any other faith. It’s world domination. When they dominate an area, they’ll let other belief systems exist, but they’ll persecute them so that (people) convert to Islam and there’s total domination. Once you’re in Islam you can’t get out of it. If you leave Islam you have to be killed.”
“Shouldn’t the ancient, enduring Bible be relevant to readers even without hundreds of pages of explanations? ‘I wish that is possible,’ said Adeyemo, who served as the book’s general editor. ‘But we’ve had the Bible for at least over 100 years on this continent, and the problems we are dealing with are still here.'”
“A California appeals court ruled Thursday that state laws limiting marriage to heterosexual couples are constitutional and do not deprive gay or lesbian couples of a ‘vested fundamental right.’ The ruling is the latest in a string of recent setbacks for same-sex marriage advocates. In a 2-to-1 decision, a panel of the 1st District Court of Appeals overturned a 2005 ruling by a lower court judge in San Francisco that denying same-sex couples the right to marry was unconstitutional. Thursday’s decision likely will not be the final word, however, as the ruling is expected to be appealed to the California Supreme Court.”
We developed a leak along the gutter end of the roof over the five years we have lived here and its time to do something about it. Anyone care to join me? The kids and I started tearing off the back porch (computer room) shingles along the window wall of Katie’s room this evening. But after removing the rough looking patches alongside that wall, it looks water tight. I think the real problem is not the shingles, but the missing drip edge which allows water to get past the gutter and into the roof itself. That may prove to be an easier or bigger job than I was anticipating. We’ll see.
Jefferson’s first grade class fit in the Saab last year, but not anymore. Compare this year’s picture with last year’s. There is one less student in the class, but they are all a bit bigger. What interested me was that the same girl is in the drivers seat. Who is that?
