When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.

Signed up for a new account at [redacted] website.

Created new sign-up application associated with my account.

Before submitting the application, clicked "Save & Exit"

Re-entered saved application to ensure all data saved.

Clicked "Save & Exit" again for good measure.

Logged off website.

[Some time passes.]

Logged into account at [redacted] website.

Clicked on link indicating that I was an existing user.

Clicked on "Resume my application link."

Application opens and is completely blank.

Call toll-free number to ask what's up.

Rep asks me for substantial amount of information already part of my account info. I ask why. Reply: "For my call log."

Rep asks what I need. I explain.

Rep: "I don't know why they still have that 'Save and Exit' option on the website. It does not work and hasn't worked for a number for months."

Me: "So I have to start the application completely over?"

Rep: "I'm afraid so."

Are you not entertained? The state of the church in much of the minority world (eg. the West) is pretty sad.

I'm guessing this was an attempted object lesson for the Triumph ant entry into Jerusalem.

One may well ask: "How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?" The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that "an unjust law is no law at all."

Now, what is the difference between the two? How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.

The truth of what he saw disturbed me deeply. There I was, anti-war, anti–capital punishment, even vegetarian, and a firm believer that social justice cannot be won at the cost of violence. Well, this sure looked like violence. How had I agreed to make this hideous act the centerpiece of my feminism? How could I think it was wrong to execute homicidal criminals, wrong to shoot enemies in wartime, but all right to kill our own sons and daughters?

Who has first given to me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is mine.

But what Hecataeus of Miletus says of the Sunday is not credible, believing incorrectly that in ages past it was set aside as a day of veneration to a now-forgotten god, and that the citizens of Usa once worshipped in much smaller temples on Sunday and partook of a different feast than the nachodip and the mead. But this is unlikely, as the citizens of Usa cannot remember a time when that god was worshiped on Sunday (although a very small number of them retain this ancient and mysterious practice). But the day on which the Winter Festival takes place is the most holy and sacred in all of that land, and the god of the Foo Tball is unsurpassed in the glory and honor and riches devoted to his name. So let this suffice regarding the god of Foo Tball and the citizens of Usa.
And in the distant empire of Usa there is a strange custom that takes place once per year among the . . . .

A friend of mine sent out this pic of the 511mn.org website earlier today, when the blizzard had subsided. We live in SW Minnesota.

The church can bear witness to the canon of Scripture, but it cannot inwardly persuade us of its authority. If that were so the voice of the church would have greater force than the voice of God, and the whole state of man's salvation would be dependent on men. What could be more miserable than that?

Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.

Like Ron Swanson I do not just give my endorsement, and coffee is something I take very seriously.  This is one of two brands that I recommend to people for whom Coffee is important.  The other is Independence Coffee Specifically their Jet Fuel blend. Good day
