Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
I have always considered him a national treasure. It truly saddens and repulsed me to read the comments from the Right about his cancer.
President Carter embodies all the good, honorable traits the gop can only TALK about. He lives by his faith. He has been all over the world, doing good deeds, and is loved by everyone. Dubya can not leave this country, he has been told he will be arrested for war crimes along with many of his fellow conspirators. President Carter is an honorable man, a decent man. Name any one of the gop contenders who can come close to his qualities.
The world will lose a major positive influence when this gentle man passes.It's too bad other politicians can't live and work as he does. I guess they are trying to live by the tenets of a different Jesus Christ.
Note that the GOP always cries, 'We want a "businessman" in the White House' but endlessly derided Carter as 'peanut farmer.' Keep in mind too that the first and most effective calumny their smear machine hung on him was, 'He's too nice to be president.'
YES! I remember the meme Gryph posted of his accomplishments as president. One in a million he is!
The recent discussion of usa military men force to witness and accept on usa bases in foreign countries. They were forced to witness rape of young boys. Really? Really? Is this custom acceptable anywhere in this world? It appears yes. And it appears majority are men behaving like animals. And those that whisleblow or defect are what? prosecuted? Is the usa war machine this sick today? Really?
What the he'll are you talking about anonymous 4:14?
Is dat you screech Sarah? 4:14?
@Anonymous 4:14AM -- You are so full of shit; none of what you wrote is true.Do you have a lifetime subscription to the National Enquirer? Is that where you read that drivel?
Recent discussion where? Bullshit.
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/21/world/asia/us-soldiers-told-to-ignore-afghan-allies-abuse-of-boys.html?_r=1 Pretty sure this is what anon 4.14 is talking about.
@Anonymous 4:14AM -- I apologize for what I wrote earlier, but you misled us by saying it was rape. What you referred to is not rape, but rather a subculture within a country in which the participants are quite willing to do what they do. It was written about a few years ago, so it's nothing new.Instructing our military to respect other countries' customs isn't anything new either, whether we like or disagree with them. Their laws and customs are theirs alone and we should respect that. Otherwise we become, once again, The Ugly American.
May God bless you ,Jimmy Carter. What a sweet and caring man.
Does barstool have a Facebook page?
Well, okay then. I'll be a man and admit I was wrong.Now it's your turn to be men and admit the Bible condemns Planned Parenthood.Oh, and don't get me started on what the Revelations says about Benghazi....
My favorite SNL skit:http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/ask-president-carter/n8649Jimmy Carter is a man of intelligence, vision, integrity and compassion.
Thank you, President Carter!
"This is a man who lived his faith instead of using it as a blunt instrument to attack others. "-----------------------------He is still living his faith. He is not dead yet.
Jimmy not only lived his faith, he never tried to use it for nefarious purposes. He didn't condemn others for not believing as he did. He will be missed by this world.
It was St. Paul who condemned it in the New Testament. St. Paul also was very misogynistic and I truly believe he seemed to despise women in many ways. Jesus never did say anything about it. He did condemn the rich for not helping the poor, the sick, those in jail. He also was angered by people who used religion to make money off of and hypocrites. He believed in helping the poor, the sick, the elderly, the imprisoned when today's Republicans DO NOT. They call themselves Christians, but they do not follow the teachings. They continuously throw stones at the president and judge him unmercifully. They are so tiresome and hypocritical.
The bible would be a better book if all of Saul's writings were removed. The new testament should only contain writings of the apostles and first hand accounts of Jesus.Saul never met Jesus and was no apostle. He was included because he fit the agenda of the men who decided what books to include and which to exclude. They tipped the scales heavily toward Saul, claiming it was because he was the most prolific, but be honest. It was because he was a misogynist, probably a closet masochist, he was controlling, judgmental and he matched the political direction they wanted the church to go. He suited their purposes. The translations were also biased toward their agenda too. If ever there needed to be a major revision and new translation of the bible, it's now.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
