Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • Anyone who writes they have a source as to how the Supreme Court will rule on Obamacare cannot be believed.  That's one institution which never has leaks. 
  • TCU offered Texas Wesleyan $60 million for its law school 10 years ago and now it gets sold to the Aggies for $25 million?
  • Dear Facebook People: I really don't need to be beat over the head with inspirational sayings that you love to post. I'm good. 
  • HBO is replaying Hard Knocks with the 2008 Dallas Cowboys. Good grief: Pacman Jones, Roy Williams, Tank Johnson, Terrell Owens, Bobby Carpenter, and Martellus Bennett. Poster children for under-achievers.
  • They are still working on the Fuzzy Tacos location on the square in Decatur.
  • Mrs. LL drove back and forth from Texarkana yesterday  and then walks in the house after getting back during rush hour with two kids in tow and with a smile on her face.  What? No beat down?
  • Saw a little bit of Mitt Romney's speech at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials. Every time I think there's a chance he might win, I just have to watch him speak for those thoughts to evaporate.
  • The announcement yesterday that college football will have a four team college football playoff was monumental.  But I'm curious as to which of the bowls make up the six that will rotate the two semi-final games. You'd think Rose, Sugar, Orange, Fiesta, Cotton and . . . . the last one I'm lost about. 
  • Cowboys Stadium will undoubtedly hold the Championship Game which means in some years it will get the semi-final (in the Cotton Bowl game - not to be confused with the actual Cotton Bowl stadium) and the championship game. Delicious. 
  • How can you get so worked up over the rainbow/gay Oreo? How can there be so much hate out there?
  • I ignored a lawyer the other day at an administrative hearing who probably wanted to engage in banter. Loud. Oblivious to his surroundings and the process. Dressed like a slob (jeans).  
  • I wonder what happened to the kid who was "carrying" the cross to Washington D.C.? 
  • I think it is odd that Rangers play-by-play man Dave Barnett is still off the air after talking gibberish the other day. It's not like doing another broadcast would cause a recurrence. 
  • I'd pay big money to see Ann Curry going on a burn-all-bridges rant on The Today Show.

I don't have any issues with the LGBT community in general but just like you get tired head over the inspirational postings on Facebook, I get tired of the in your face all the time LGBT stuff. Just live your life, ignore the haters, and quit trying to get everybody to love you or accept you. I don't care what your sexual orientation is, you won't succeed at making everyone like/love/accept you.

The same part of the Bible that has reference to man laying with man also prohibits eating shellfish (shrimp, oysters etc) and prohibits wearing clothers with "mixed fibers". It also says women must not dress in men's clothes. And you should kill children who are disrespectful to their parents. Etc. Etc. Do you also adhere to those directives, too, huh?

As a ....long pause.... graduate of Texas Wesleyan University, this financial blunder is no surprise. Some people may forget, but TXU had an outstanding opportunity in the mid to late 80's to move out of the deep East side ghetto, to the flourishing Southwest side of Ft Worth. Cityview, Mira Vista side of Ft Worth. That was until some Administrator, I think the school President stole a few million from the University. Then brilliantly they they made the heroic decision to stay put and expand the current campus. Ft Worth leaders wanted TXU to stay to help the East side community, how did that work out? This missed opportunity to sell the School of law is just another example of the miss guided leadership at a struggling University and the ineptitude of the Board of Trustees.

9:12 are you serious? The Bible states it and that's the end of it for you?

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Leviticus 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. How should I deal with this?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as stated in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Leviticus 15:19-24). The problem is, how can I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Leviticus 25:44 states that I may buy slaves from the nations that are around us. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine says that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Leviticus 10:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

Leviticus 20:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

9:09, really? just turn our heads if we don't want to see it?

People like you, 9:09, really have no clue about responsibility and human compassion for others. Let me be clear that "allowing whatever" to occur is NOT showing human compassion!

8:51 and 9:05 have the right idea. Continually something that is socially unacceptable (or against the law) in the faces of the public will not make it right.

9:12 -

Sure, there are lots of things named as sin in the Bible, like eating shellfish and working on Sunday. But modern-day Christians don't observe those things because (conveniently) they're "Old Testament rules" for a different time. Kinda like how you'll ignore the fact that the OT kings all had multiple wives and how if you died your wife was required to marry your brother and bear his children. I know the argument is that "those rules were for a different time and place, Christ changed all that with the new covenant." I agree - Christ changed the new covenant to one of grace and mercy, based on God's love. So let's talk about that...

It seems that modern-day "Christians" would rather sit piously and judge, instead of showing Christ's grace and love. Pretty sure Christ spent more time hanging out with sinners than the "holy" when he was here. Instead of reaching out to gays and letting them know that God loves them, today's "Christians" will yell at them that they're going to burn in hell. I don't know or care if homosexuality is sin - I am not the one who has to judge that. But last time I checked, God didn't classify/rank sins, it's just "sin is sin." So every time you've cursed or told a "little white lie" or cheated on your taxes or kept the money when a cashier made an error in your favor, you're just as much of a sinner as a murderer or a guy who likes to make out with another guy (again, if that's a sin).

So how about this - I'll live my life (I'm a straight guy with a family, just to preempt the hate comments about that) trying to be the best person that I can and show Christ's love & grace to the world around me, and I'll try not to judge others. In return, how about you (and by this I mean the ridiculously loud gay-bashers,not necessarily you in particular, 9:12) live your life the way you think is righteous, and STFU about how other people are going to burn in hell. You don't know that, and you don't know that you won't be right there with them because of your hatefulness, lack of compassion, and refusal to show grace and love (choosing instead to show venom and hate).

People are people, and God loves us all. I don't know who's going to heaven or hell, because I'm not God. Why don't you live your life, let others live there, and let God sort it all out. It's his job.

10:15, You are right. So please tell these people who feel they must shove their public display of love in the faces of everyone to please live their own life a bit more quietly. God decides condemnation to hell, not we humans. That is the judgement reserved for only HIM. But, we humans can certainly decide for ourselves and our family what we teach as right and wrong behavior in society. Even if you or others do not wish to abide by the Bible as a guide, society here still has a responsibility to keep a safe environment for all humans. To do that, some things are declared acceptable, others are declared unacceptable. So, yes, live life in your own way, but don't shove what most of society deems as inappropriate into our faces. Frankly, I believe all sexual acts need to be kept "behind closed doors." I don't like seeing groping, tongue sucking, or any other sex in public. "Decency" used to have a place in society and it still should be a priority.

You say "society here still has a responsibility to keep a safe environment for all humans" and I agree. But since when does a person's sexuality and choice of partners in a relationship create an unsafe environment for others? That's the problem - the fact that anyone even cares about who someone sleeps with is ridiculous and a waste of time. I agree with you completely that excessive PDA or public lewdness is unacceptable, and there are laws regarding that crime that apply to both heterosexual and homosexual couples. Beyond that (inappropriate public displays of affection and/or lewdness), what does it matter?

There's a difference between teaching our children what is "right and wrong with society" and with enacting laws legislating that "wrong" behavior. If a majority of people thought pledging allegiance to Christ every morning was "acceptable," should we then make it the law? No. It's perfectly fine to teach your children whatever you feel is correct, so long as it doesn't violate the rights of others.

(BTW, I'm 10:15 and I'm Christian, so I do believe in the Bible as a guide.)

Polls have repeatedly shown that American attitudes toward sexuality are changing, and that the age group from 18-45 increasingly couldn't care less about homosexuality. So using the argument that "most of society deems it as inappropriate" probably won't work much longer. It happened with interracial marriage, it will happen with this.

As a TWU law alum I am absolutely for this move. Anything that moves the school in an upward direction is good for the school and good the communities it serves.

"The concept of a god has been around, for mankind, as long as man has been conscious of himself as separate from other creatures - having consciousness. The concept of god came into being in response to anything more powerful than the self, a common reaction throughout the Universe. At first, this takes the form of animism, where wind, thunder, and savage beasts are gods. As when dealing with other tribal members or even some wild beasts, the newly conscious prehistoric man understood, through experience, that some of his gods could be placated. Hand over the food, and all is well, for instance. Placating angry tribal members often involved sacrificing a friend to save oneself. For instance, if the question of who stole the food comes up, if one young individual meets the blind rage of the angry elder, then the others are off the hook. The concept of the scapegoat is born.

In time these concepts become sophisticated, with sacrifices ritualized and the concept of the god expanded upon to include motive and rules. This expansion was not the common man's doing, but sly religious elites who desired an easy parasitic living. They became the keeper of the rules, and performed the ritual sacrifices. As keepers of the rules, the rules understandably began to twist in the favor of the religious elite. Organized religion was born. At some point in the intellectual and spiritual development of mankind, some began to see these flaws in organized religion and think for themselves. But casting away the rigidities of organized religion did not entirely satisfy, as these individuals sensed that something else was going on. Intuitively aware of the eternal soul within them, they sensed that the separation of body and soul was possible, and that reincarnation existed. In contact with spirits in higher dimensions, they became intuitively aware of the spiritual realm.

That's where we are today, with mankind. No answers, just intuitive understanding and a lot of organized religion conducting their rituals and laying down rules. Mankind, in increasing numbers, is coming into contact with extraterrestrials who have an understanding of the larger picture. At last, they will have an answer. Unfortunately for the anxious, this is not to be the case, for we, also, do not have the answer. Our understanding of how the Universe works is greater than yours, but what started it all and why are still outstanding questions in the Zeta minds. Sorry about that. We too must progress to higher densities of spiritual maturity before we can gain a greater understanding." Per the Zeta's

Wow! I'm very happy you're not the Christian head of my household!!
And, ok, let's just leave Biblical teachings out of this. What you are also condoning is that in our human race, ANYTHING should become acceptable as long as enough of society goes along with it. Ever read the book "Lord of the Flies?" It has nothing at all to do with Biblical teachings, but certainly hits the nail on the head about what will happen in societies when no one stands for what is civilized and lawful behavior.

4:24, I have fat friends and skinny friends, healthy friends and sick friends, friends of different sexual persuasion, and friends who gamble and some who even run around on their wife or husband. I can be friends with anyone, but I do not have to agree with everything they do in their life. And if my friends who cheat on their spouse began to preach out loud that they are proud to be a cheater because it's their right to be one and it's their right to be accepted as a cheater without being judged, then I might speak a little louder about not wanting them around my children. THE POINT IS -- keep your private life to yourself and don't start "whatever pride" group to make everyone accept everything under the sun or else be called a "hater" or an overzealous religious nut! LOTS of folks have standards they believe in and live by. I'm pretty sick and tired of being told how awful I am, or my friends are, or my church is because we don't ACCEPT all the WHATEVER's we are told are now "acceptable!" I'll decide for myself what is acceptable and I'll continue to speak against what I don't find acceptable. If you don't like the fact that I find certain behaviors unacceptable or WRONG, then Stay. Away. From. Me. and my Family!
My friends are my friends because we can agree to disagree without going into some kind of rage and calling one another "hater" etc.
People do judge and will continue to judge other people because there are some we want to hang around and others we don't want to hang with. Are you saying that's just an awful thing to do? Do you have kids? Do you tell them who they can and cannot play with? That's called judgement!

Actually, I'm a "try to be a vessel for God's love & mercy" Christian.

Why is it that opponents of homosexuality immediately jump to bestiality in these discussions? EVERY TIME. Pedophilia is also always a close second. The logic behind that argument is faulty (and makes you look weird for immediately jumping to that conclusion). Here's why: there is a difference between a consensual relationship between two consenting adults (homosexuality) and a "relationship" between an adult and someone/something that canNOT consent to that relationship (a child or animal). In the first example, no one is being harmed. In the latter two, someone is. Why do I not judge homosexuality but do condemn bestiality and pedophilia? For the same reason I condemn all crimes - there is a victim.

For the same reason, your "Lord of the Flies" example fails. In that novel, the actions taken by the mob were criminal, and thus were not acceptable. If two of the boys had kissed each other, then who cares? But when the boys start to torture and abuse each other, then it's a problem. Your own statement makes my point - "[The novel] . . . certainly hits the nail on the head about what will happen in societies when no one stands for what is civilized and lawful behavior." Exactly right - "civilized & lawful," not moralistic and judgmental. So while I do think that attitudes are changing re: homosexuality, I am decidedly NOT saying that "anything the majority wants should be the law." We don't live in a country where the mob mentality rules. Heck, we don't even live in a country where majority rules, since we're a republican democracy.

Here's my bottom line: Christ loves people. He loves the sinner and the saved, and spent every moment of his ministry reaching for the sinner. I'm not Christ, but I want to do as much as I can to show people how much He loves them. I echo the comments of the previous poster (4:24) - for those reading this who have been hurt by judgmentalism/legalism/piousness in modern-day Christianity, I am sorry. Please understand that we are all human, we all err, and we fail. Do not let our shortcomings reflect on the power of Christ's love for every person.

Surrendering to my natural instincts results in babies. Carrying out your unnatural instincts results in disease and a short life span.

There are quite a few heteros that enjoy going down "the dirt road" if you know what I mean...

7:07, you're a piece of milk toast. You're a fence sitter and stand for nothing. You avoid confrontation because you want people to like you and you make excuses for Christianity. Might want to do some real soul searching on your knees buddy!

You are obviously an atheist. So why are you talking about God, when you don't believe in HIM? Get off the subject. God should not concern you...you are an atheist.
