What was she supposed to do about the Nazi regime? She didn't become queen until 1952- on top of that, the British monarch doesn't have much real power to do anything. Blame the Prime Minister.
Service and charity work is only successful if it is sincere- if one is forced to serve other people it is reluctant and shoddy work at best.
I personally would really want to play some jazz for Bach on an organ or harpsichord haha
No amount of social or educational reform will change the fact that some people suffer from severe cases of Total Moron Syndrome. One needn't be uneducated to suffer from TMS; in fact, it's often been argued that it's more common in educated circles.
The point being that a lot of people will always be idiots regardless of their educational status.
Since when is multiculturalism the same as destroying the West or fueled by white guilt? I see many leaps that don't logically follow.
Fortunately, my name hasn't ever been particularly popular so it's generation-less :-D
Religion and science are intended to coexist. As Wernher von Braun said, "Science and religion are not antagonists. On the contrary, they are sisters. While science tries to learn more about the creation, religion tries to better understand the Creator."
Some contend that science disproves religion, but they forget that religion cannot and is not supposed to be proven. If I could prove the existence of God, faith would go out the window and religion would be pointless. Without the necessary element of faith (belief in and knowledge of things not seen which are true), religion would cease to be.
Growing up in Salt Lake City, I know this well- one summer there was a drought. Some moron threw a cigarette butt (still lit) out of his car while on a freeway that passed my elementary school. A small field of grass, dry and yellowed, burst into flame while I was at recess.
Not necessarily so. The Bible isn't the ultimate source of authority in all facets of life but it generally provides good ideas and doctrines on how to live. Would I consult the Bible on everything? No. There are parts of the Bible missing, literally lost in translation. However, it is the word of God as far as it is translated correctly and in most circumstances it is a valid source of insight.
lolno. In Dead Poets Society it's made clear that "carpe diem" doesn't mean "do whatever the helk you please". It means "make your life extraordinary". YOLO means "do whatever you want without regard for the consequences".
This is offensive on so many levels as a religious believer and as a person with AS. This kind of mockery only serves to divide society and create enmity- even if it's entertaining at the time, it brings in a third party to be the clown unwillingly. Promise me you won't breed, please.
I'm more offended by you bringing autism into the mix. I've been mocked for being religious up and down all my life, I can handle that. What I won't stand for is being mocked for a mental disability.
Actually, I really like a lot of German words....Schadenfreude and Schmerzensgewalt come to mind.
I understand that we have it relatively easy- I just don't like being misrepresented any more than Jews or Muslims do. I don't claim that Christians have the short end of the stick in America, nor do I think that "we're losing America". However, the point of my post is that certain groups of Christianity add to the noted anti-Christian sentiment and give the rest of us a bad name.
$10 still isn't high enough.
