Bush Says He Doubts Bible Literally True

December 9, 2008
President George W. Bush

President George W. Bush

President George W. Bush said that he is not a literalist when it comes to his Bible reading. What that means to me is that President Bush doesn’t believe that everything in the Bible happened exactly as it is written.  That’s not the way I was taught, but I guess he is entitled to his opinion, even if I think his opinion is wrong.  But if you look at the public opinion on President Bush you will see that I am not alone in believing that his opinion is wrong.  But back to the Bible; do you believe that the Bible is literally true?  Answer the opinion poll and leave your comments.

God trumps doctors for many Americans

August 18, 2008

DeaconDavid’s comment:  I KNOW that God is a healer.  I’ve seen it too many times to not believe.  I know that science can’t explain it, but for those who have faith and believe it makes lots of sense.

Many Americans believe divine intervention can revive dying patients. Can science and miracles co-exist?

Park Ridge pastor offers help to the homeless, parish resists

July 21, 2008

DeaconDavid’s comment: While I understand some of the concern for the children’s safety, the pastor says that what they are concerned about has never happened before. It almost sounds like the parishioners are saying, “we don’t mind praying for those people but we don’t want them near our children”. Read the story for yourself and let me know what you think.

A Park Ridge, IL catholic pastor wants to offer his school gym as a homeless shelter one day a week, but his parishioners are resisting, saying that it is unwanted and unneeded.

No Charges In The MySpace Suicide Case

December 4, 2007

Over the past few weeks I have seen several stories about the case about a young girl, named Megan Meir, who at the tender age of 13 committed suicide after receiving a message from a boy who she thought was named Josh.  As it turns out the boy didn’t exist and was a fictional person some one else made up.  You can read all about it by clicking HERE.

When you read the story you will see that there are some serious ethical issues at hand here.   It looks like some adults conspired to deceive this young lady and because of their actions, she killed herself.  Now the prosecutor is saying that the adults didn’t break the law, they just played a tragic trick on the young lady and that is not illegal, but in my opinion, it is unethical.  What do you say?   No matter where you stand on this issue please keep all families involved in prayer.
