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.
New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses
New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.
Now it is set to take effect this week.
In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.
Could it really be about voting?
FOX News reports:
Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.
Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.
The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.
Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.
“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.
County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.
CBS News in Albany reports:
County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.
Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.
Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”
Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.
Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.
“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.
Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?
