    I know what the definition of "secular progressive" is.

    I think most here do as well.

    Could you tell me what a "Neo-Con" is in the context it is being used here?

    I haven't seen an explanation.

    Thank you!

    So, your answer is a cut a paste of an editorial about war mongers??

    And that is what you think I am??


    Like Marvin, I was hoping for "your words."
    Guess that ain't gonna happen.

    You know, I was having a cup a JO, looking at the RTF main page.
    Shocking how many people that used to post there no longer do.

    Why do you suppose that is????


    Uhhhhhhh......LIFE maybe????

    This is bazaar! I turn on the early morning TV for a bit afore I go out to hug tree. The local Fox affiliate has a local hunting program on that is very good. This weeks episode they were hunting ducks and Canada geese in east Maryland during that fricken huge snowstorm last month.
    Anyway, I digress.
    I drifted into the half hour bible study program after. It is raining slush here right now and I am not that eager to go hug a tree in falling slush.
    So today’s episode was part of the book of acts. Now I am not a line-by-line Bible study type of person. Personally I look at it much like dog training as you need the hole picture overview. Not a line-by-line training program (those folk who would read a page, go out on the lawn, read another page, go out again??)
    Anyway, I digress again!!!

    But ONE LINE of today’s program really really really really hit home just now.

    About a feller Simon who is asking an Apostil Paul how much money he needs to pay to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

    I think it applies to the why of some not posting, as well as some other things I am ruminating on at this time.

    Here is the line. If you seek it out for your own Sunday reading start with about 4 lines in front of it to lead in. That is what the TV feller did.

    Hits home

    Ken, I think you read way to much into the intent of my original post. It is cold and snow flurries here as well. I'll go out later and hug a tree in your name. Enjoy your day. JD

    or conversely, you may not be ken to the depth of your own question.
