I was baptized and raised a Christian, in some folks minds not a sincere Christian. They claim I've blasphemed. I’ve always questioned everything. For me to believe, I have to know the claim is genuine, not for some ulterior motive, such as control. There is no better way to control people than to put them on a guilt trip, bring down God’s wrath on those who dare to question. For questioning, I’m castigated on this Tea Party. I’m been warned many times by Christians that I’m going to hell, and right here in these Tea Party discussions! I’m arrogant, egotistical, a shameful disgrace to humanity. I was barred from Tea Party Patriots, and warned by this Tea Party’s Director to quit casting aspersions on its founder. The founder cast aspersions on my beliefs. That’s acceptable on this Tea Party. I believe Jesus is my savior and redeemer. This Tea Party maintains that I’m a liar. It seems that Jesus had the same problem. They crucified him.
My mother was born and raised in the Jewish faith. She married a Christian and agreed to raise her children in the Christian faith. She was a Christian. A Christian minister presided at her burial. But she remained respectful of her Jewish background. My Christian minister maintained that my mother, because she was born a Jew, didn’t go to heaven. He said the Scriptures told him that. Too many Christians interpret the Scriptures the way they personally see reality. This mental sickness is dividing America.
I’m not one to accept the established way of thinking. I’m one to solve my problems my way. I believe in the Constitution as written, not in light of today’s needs. My principles and values date from the beginning of man’s appearance on earth. I believe that I was born in the image of my Creator, and as well every human on earth. We are all born with an immortal soul.
Jesus said the kingdom of God is in me. Jesus said that there would be signs in the sun, moon, and stars when there was distress among the nations (Luke 21). He said that this was when he would be there for us. He did not say in what form.
A lady told me that I’m a rock in the stream. I’m not one to hide my belief under a bushel. I see the stream on the tides, ebbing and flowing, and getting nowhere. Christians tend to be set in their ways. I’m not sure I have anything to contribute here, but I’d like to give it a try.
Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.
California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.
Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.
Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.
“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.
Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.
Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).
Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.
Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.
Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
