Sunday Faith Blog...and the 2 pieces just below

I thought this picture was so adorable and it reminded me that we can ALL use some quiet time with God. Make it personal, speak out loud to Him, use your hands!

"Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust.." Psalms 40:4

And please take a few minutes to read our posts below on Socialism and how it's affected Germans and Armenians. We'd really appreciate your comments. Thanks. z

Happy Sunday, all....

A blessed Lord's Day to all here.

I didn't get to visit here yesterday and will check the two posts below forthwith.

Karen said...

Have a wonderful day! I smiled at that little one - chubby legs and arms so precious.

Pat Jenkins said...

trust depends on somenone being willing to catch you!

WomanHonorThyself said...

too bad we have to endure such a pernicious mentality of the lefties daily,,Thank God for Sabbath Z! have a great weekend my friend!:)

And remember, it's Pentecost today - the day of the Holy Spirit!

Frohe Pfingsten!

Mr.Z

Z said...

Thanks, everyone.

Pat..you remind me of something I've learned:
To take a leap of FAITH, one must have a net. That's what the Good Book's for...Got to have someone catch you, you're SO RIGHT! :0) (Go, Lakers! heh)

Karen, couldn't you just hug that little girl?! I LOVE her! the little feet on tiptoe, she's really involved in QUITE a conversation!!

WOMAN...the lefty junk really is dragging us down, isn't it. AND our country. But, I think some of them are waking up. We can hope and pray. Blessings to you on your sabbath day, too.

I read the newspaper article beneath the photo. It seems this baby does this on a regular basis.

It's just precious.

God bless the little children.

Ah, the far right American taliban showing both their faith and understanding of their 2nd amendment rights

--------------------------

WICHITA - George Tiller, the Wichita doctor who became a national lightning rod in the debate over abortion, was shot to death this morning as he walked into church services.

Tiller, 67, was shot just after 10 a.m. at Reformation Lutheran Church at 7601 E. 13th, where he was a member of the congregation. Witnesses and a police source confirmed Tiller was the victim.

No information has been released about whether a suspect is in custody. Police said they are looking for white male who was driving a 1990s powder blue Ford Taurus with Kansas license plate 225 BAB.

FrogBurger said...

Ducky, I can take any nuts and make generalities about things like faith and the second amendment.

The far right and the far left both have their criminals.

It's just inappropriate and plainly offensive to post this piece of news on a blog post that is about Mary.

I think you should apologize.

Ducky's here said...

Not so sure, is this the "armed revolt" that has been advocated by posters at several sites z links to.

Is this the first fruits of Glenn Beck, Ingraham and Rush the Vulgar Pigboy as the stir up the right?

Shall we start bringing in extreme fundamentalist organization members for "interrogation" and start tapping their phones?

We'll see what develops but the right is going to have to man up and admit to the quality of what they are advocating.

lovelyprism said...

Lovely post. Hope you enjoyed the weekend.

Listen Ducky, no one who believes in the rule of law, and the Justice system of this country, condones murder.

I knew when I read this about Tiller, that people like you including the press, would indict all people who believe in the right to life.

Even though I am one who believes Tiller committed infanticide every time he performed this procedure, never would I have condoned such an horrific act as his murder. I'm sure I speak for all of us here as well.

You however, are not lamenting his murder, you are here to gloat, unbelieveably, and seem delighted at this news.

Is there nothing you on the left won't exploit regarding what you think is to your advantage? I guess not.

Frankly Ducky, it's times like this when you are at your worst. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Pris

FrogBurger said...

Ducky you are intellectually dishonest. In the likes of fascists who distort the truth.
Saying that Glen Beck or Ingrahm advocate murder is a pure lie.

According to your logic, I'd be authorized to say that Obama advocates murder of infants because he doesn't agree to protecting babies who survived late term abortion.

You may want to go back to school and study the definition of words as well as logic.

Mustang said...

Only the idly curious would even attempt to understand Ducky's sense of morality, or follow his logic in anything.

Pasadena Closet Conservative said...

Bless that baby's heart.

heidianne jackson said...

what a moving, lovely piece, z. thank you.

and mustang, i am always amazed at the human's ability to rationalize anything to the point of presenting as logical something horrific and illogical. ducky doesn't know any better - i hate the sin, not the sinner.

LASunsett said...

Ducky, you don't have much of an ability to use the slightest amount of critical thinking skills to engage in a discussion, do you? Just when I think you do, you prove me wrong.

Where in this post or any post on this blog have you ever seen Z condone murder? Find it and link to it, will you?

If you cannot (and I highly suspect you can't), you have killed any credibility you have been able to build, and it makes you no different than many of whom you criticize.

Susannah said...

Happy Pentacost Sunday! Happy Birthday to the Church!!

:)

Z, I've just posted my 'tagged' post. Thanks for including me!

Z said...

Ducky, when you find some blogger friend of mine who advocated killing anyone, PLEASE let me know.
(this is a cheap shot, but then let me remind you that Tony Snow's death prompted the shutting down of Huffington because of the huge onslaught of vile celebrations at his young and painful passing. Then let me remind you of so many who've wished Cheney's heart attacks to finally succeed).


How in the world are you connecting this killing to Conservatives advocating good things like banding together to do all we can to prevent our children from being unrightfully scared witless by global warming exaggerations, having our children taught to sing songs about THE LEADER Obama as if this is 1935 Germany, our government buying American companies, slecting SCOTUS judges who are members of racists groups like LaRaza, etc etc. What's your connection?


I'm as proud of a group of people as I can be. It's not easy to read dopey stuff like yours and not feel completely demoralized that someone was raised in this country and thinks like you do. It's honestly very hard to comprehend.

Frogburger makes an excellent point; How can you come to my Sunday Faith Blog with the Holy Mother Mary (you, a Catholic) and gleefully lick your chops that a man who was killing babies in late term's been murdered?

Pasadena said it best: She said "Bless that babies heart" ..how poignant because she meant the baby on the post, that adorable child who had a chance to live and grow chunky little arms her parents want to cuddle and has that spot on her neck where it feels so good to kiss...
Bless her heart.....And may God bless all the hearts of the babies denied the chance that my little girl on my post has; may God forgive this abortion doctor and may He be with that man's family while they suffer his loss.

And, may He be with the murderer who felt SO compelled and so torn inside at the wholesale killing of nearly-born innocents that he would stoop to such a heinous act such as this. And, may He be with the congregants who had to see this terrible thing happen.

And, isn't it just like a liberal: Someone kills, so let's forget the 2nd amendment. My GOD, will liberals EVER learn that one terrible thing does NOT make for changing laws for the rest of us?

In all the bad times we've had, I've never had anyone come on my Sunday Faith Blog and write anything BUT something encouraging and enthusiastic about the post.

You have advocated keeping any Muslim's name quiet in the press when they've killed (even being so lame as to suggest "they DID let the name of that guy in Buffalo out" When you KNEW that was a MUSLIM TV STATION so HOW COULD THEY NOT?!) but let an American kill and you label all of us TALIBAN.

I'm sorry to go off on you this big, but today you REALLY stepped over the line

Law and Order Teacher said...

Z,
I knew this would happen. It will only grow worse. Every conservative is implicit in the minds of these lefties. I would never condone murder. I've seen too much death in my life.

The law is the answer. Try people who break the law. Let a jury of his/her peers judge. Judging others isn't my business.

My convictions tell me that abortion is murder. I have not swerved from that feeling. That's how I feel.

Z said...

I'm VERY VERY proud to know you, L&0

and I couldn't agree with you more...And yes, this IS going to happen. Persecution. We're told it will. It's a promise. It will only get worse, you're right. Look how fast it's coming now.
Even BY those who consider themselves 'Christian'. Through wrong teachings, through immaturity, through a political agenda more important than the Word of God. amazing.

David Wyatt said...

What a precious little one, Z. No wonderf our Savior had such a special place in His holy heart for the little ones! I'm so thankful that He saved this old sinner over 30 years ago! I go to Him often because to be honest with you Z, (please don't let this get out, OK?) I still sin, & though I want so badly to be better, I am nowhere near where I want to be, so when I sin, I go to Him & pour out my broken heart to Him, & you know what??? HE FORGIVES ME & STILL LOVES ME ANYWAY! All because He died for me & rose again. Thank you Z for this reminder. God Bless you!

Papa Frank said...

A peaceful Sunday to you and Mr. Z.

shoprat said...

God is still on the throne and the King is coming.

beamish said...

I'm surprised at my fellow libertarians and conservatives here time and again giving the existence of Ducky's rationality the benefit of the doubt despite his many explicit denials of the existence of said rationality each time he states his leftist views.

Put simply, leftists don't do rationality for the same reason mildew stains don't do astrophysics. They can't.

Besides, if Ducky and other leftists really thought we were "the Taliban" they'd be showering us with praise and affection. Hugo Chavez sent $1 Million to the Taliban on Sept. 12, 2001. They can't be that bad. Ducky?

Elmers Brother said...

Is this the first fruits of Glenn Beck, Ingraham and Rush the Vulgar Pigboy as the stir up the right?where have any of them or anyone here advocated killing abortion doctors?

duhkkky your strawman panties are showing again.

Jen aka Pinky said...

Z, beautiful prayers for all involved. It's a tragedy.

Ducky. My heart goes out to you. You must be hurting right now. I won't pretend to understand why you say the things you do. Much brotherly love for you.

Oh, and Z....that sweet spot on the neck...it's my favorite. :-)

Z said...

Jen, and when you blow on that spot (like the raspberry) instead of kissing, I love their giggles and squeals, right?

I don't know if Ducky's hurting, but he's sure mad and got his values crisscrossed.

yes, prayers for everyone...a definite tragedy; not one to make light of or unfairly condemn others, either.

mksviews said...

That is a good pic, chubby little bugger. :)

Kinda reminds me of myself when i was little.

FJ said...

It's not Rush, Ingraham OR Beck that you need to be worried about mr. ducky. You've already got your plan for shutting THEM down. It's the rest of us getting together and deciding to stretch your necks. And THAT day is rapidly approaching.

Jen aka Pinky said...

There's nothing in the world like that laugh, Z. Nothing! It's magic!

And no, this tragedy is not to be taken lightly or to be used for political gain. As a conservative, I am no more responsible for this man's actions than Ducky is for...I won't even go there.

Ducky's here said...

Well folks, time to put Randall Terry on a terrorist watch list, tap their phones, no?

If this were a Muslim killing you'd be all over it, right?

But the American Taliban gets a pass?

The Merry Widow said...

ducky-Randall Terry has repudiated and condemned this murder, JUST LIKE HE HAS EVERY OTHER ONE!

You are a typical leftista, and it is a vile and ugly thing to be!

You disgust me.

tmw

FrogBurger said...

Being on the left must require some mental disorder that leads people to distort what people say and draw illogical conclusions.

Ducky, you are either an idiot or a plain mean person. I don't know which one it is.

Did we say we're giving a pass to the American Taliban?

Again the same logic could be applied to your friends. I could use the Left's stance on Palestine and say you are supporting women discrimination because you're supporting the Palestinian cause.

Again, you really need to go back to studying logic. Or stay with the Sophists.

Elmers Brother said...

you're such an idiot Duhkkky

Operation Rescue condemned the killing as vigilantism and "a cowardly act," and the group's president, Troy Newman, said Roeder "has never been a member, contributor or volunteer." He may have posted to the organization's open Internet blog, Newman said, but so have thousands of nonmembers.Despite the fact that Operation Rescue uses peaceful protest it was described in the article as militant.

So you get your wish duhkkky the media calls peaceful groups militant and groups like Hamas and Hezbollah get a pass from you.

I think I'll start calling you duncy instead.

and while the police aren't saying what the killers motivation was (he could have been his gay lover for all we know) leave it to the left to pronounce conservatives the perpetrators and 'Matthew Shepherd' the whole story

Elmers Brother said...

AND duhkkky nobody here has supported the murderer who took this doctor's life

Z said...

Elbro, TRUST me, if this had been a gay lover thing, Ducky'd have been ALL OVER IT

Elmers Brother said...

but enough about Duhkkky's sex life Z

Z said...

oooh, ya, I could have put that in a different way, huh, Elbro!! Heh

Ducky's here said...

z, do you enjoy it when elmo starts to act butch?

Ducky's here said...

Yeah elmo and go look up Randall Terry's statements about Tiller.

'Ol Randall wasn't trying to stir up the troops was he?

On another note we have Bill O'Really going on the air to defend his past statements about Tiller.

So what you have is a lot of punks like Terry and O'Reilly stirring up folks like this former Montana Freeman who had been indicted for bomb making a while back and got out of a two year sentence on an illegal search appeal.

Yeah, all the fruits of the right are going to start to blossom. The far right certainly is a voice of reason and progress.

FrogBurger said...

Again, be specifics Ducky.

"On another note we have Bill O'Really going on the air to defend his past statements about Tiller."

What was his statement? I don't know so you can inform me on the CONTENT and SUBSTANCE of his statement?

Did the statement say "Kill the doc"? Or did it say "This guy is killing babies"? Or both? Or something else?

Again you're not saying much and we're supposed to be convinced by your empty logic?

You're an editor, right? You should be more details oriented? I guess being intellectually dishonest doesn't require to be details oriented. Being lazy is good enough.

FrogBurger said...

And if you indeed decides to provide me with the statement, don't give me quote than can be misinterpreted in the context. Give me the whole thing. Then I'll agree or disagree with you.

Elmers Brother said...

Yeah elmo and go look up Randall Terry's statements about Tiller.I did. did you?

did he suggest killing him duncy?

you're still an idiot

The worst thing I could find Terry saying IN 1991was that Tiller was a mass murderer on the scale of a Nazi death camp doctor.

That's not inciting anyone to kill...it's rhetoric at worst or the truth at best.

Find me a quote where he suggests that anyone should kill Tiller?

Now quit exagerating to make your point.

Elmers Brother said...

AND AGAIN for the record no one here has expressed support for the man who killed this doctor. WE abhor it.

Speaking of butch...did you see what the California court decided on gay marriage?

Good thing you live in the Massachusetts eh duhkkky?

Susannah said...

"God is still on the throne and the King is coming."

Shoprat~ my kinda guy. Do a quick youtube search for Steven Curtis Chapman's "King of the Jungle". It fits very nicely with this whole thing. It's ALL crazy - murdering babies for convenience, murdering adults in the street for retribution...government gone wild, people worshiping themselves, Israel under permanent attack...

"...what I see is telling me this world's gone crazy, but what is real is God's still on His throne...What I need is to remember one thing: that the Lord of the gentle breeze is Lord of the rough & tumble. He is the King of the Jungle..."

FJ said...

I haven't heard ducky bemoaning the shooting of two soldiers and calling for liberals over at the Huff & Puff Post to initiate a blanket condemnation of the Peace Movement yet.

What's up w/THAT, duckster? Hypocisy AGAIN?

Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota) compared President Bush to Adolf Hitler, while implying that the White House was involved in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11gasp....Put Ellison on the watch list too

Elmers Brother said...

I just found a video chock full of liberal terroristsgasp listen to all that rhetoric...

FJ said...

Who needs to a.n.s.w.e.r. for this, mr. ducky? When are the peacenicks FINALLY going to targetted for infiltration by the FBI?

Z said...

Ducky, I've met Elbro 3 times in person; he doesn't have to ACT butch. He's all man, confident, handsome and an amazingly wonderful husband, son, father and friend.
Oh, and killing babies isn't "PROGRESS".

FJ! DARN YOU! You mentioned HYPOCRISY. NOw Ducky won't comment again:-(

Z said...

I'd just like to interject here and my poor Sunday Faith Blog took on quite a different bent than it usually does.

And I'd like to remind you that praying out loud does something other types of prayer don't do. I promise.

End of sermonette!!

beamish said...

Imagine if the right-wing of America actually were like the Taliban.

Who'd stop them? Hippies chained to trees? Michael Moore?

Z said...

maybe the OBAMA CIVILIAN CORPS.

Elmers Brother said...

duhkkky and his Massachusetts friends?

bwahhahahaha
