From Tim Blair on FoxNews. My 11 years of experience in the editorial writing business lead me to strongly support your point about the counterproductive nature of Coulter-style rhetoric. When a writer advances arguments while refraining from impugning the integrity of those on the opposite side of an issue, that writer will build up capital among thoughtful readers.
Nov 21 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah The Antichrist could well rise out of the current chaos in the former Soviet Union. Many have interpreted this to mean modern day Russia.
Unfortunately, the so-called Book of Daniel was written during the reign of the Roman Emperor Nero, not many decades earlier as its proponents claim, and has been extensively modified by early Christian writers to predict the arrival of their personal Messiah, or Christ, on the Judean scene.
The seven year peace-pact or covenant that is engineered by the Antichrist is spoken of a number of times in the Bible, and may even have already been signed in secret. The historic peace agreement signed between Israel and the PLO at the White House on September 13,vividly illustrates how dramatically events in the Middle East are presently moving in this direction eager Pentecostals, awaiting their Celestial Omnibus, will inform anyone who is interested and a greater legion of those who are not.
Under the final terms of the fictional Covenant, Jerusalem will likely be declared an international city to which Judaism, Islam and Christianity will have equal rights. Scripture indicates that the Jews will be permitted to rebuild their Temple on Mt.
Moriah, where they revive their ancient rituals of animal sacrifice. According to modern prophecy the Antichrist will not only be a master of political intrigue, but also a military genius.
Daniel describes several major wars that he fights during his seven year reign, apparently against the U. But, three-and-a-half years into his seven year reign he will break the covenant and invade Israel from the North.
At this time he will make Jerusalem his world capitol and outlaw all religions, except the worship of himself and his image. The Bible, according to the Pentecostals, says that the Antichrist will sit in the Jewish Temple exalting himself as God and demanding to be worshipped.
It must be said that the Antichrist does, in point of fact exist. He can be seen on a daily basis on the walls of the Cathedral at Orvieto, Italy in the marvelous frescos of Lucca Signorelli. He looks somewhat like a Byzantine depiction of Christ with either a vicious wife or inflamed hemorrhoids.
Pentecostals strongly believe that U. What they lack in actual numbers they more than compensate for by their loud and irrational views so that at times it sounds like the roar of a great multitude when in truth, it is only a small dwarf wearing stained underwear and armed with a bullhorn, trumpeting in the underbrush Frantic Pentecostals estimated that according to their private Census for Christ there are overpracticing witches in the United States and allege there are literally millions of Americans who dabble in some form of the occult, psychic phenomena, spiritualism, demonology and black magic.
Their statistics claim that occult book sales have doubled in the last four years. What is seen by terrified Pentecostals as The Occult today is no longer the stuff of small underground cults.
If this had been true, perhaps the real reason behind the First World War, the market crash, the rise of Franklin Roosevelt and the lewd hula hoop can be attributed to Scott Joplin and Ella Fitzgerald.
Any sane person who has read these delightful fantasy books will certainly not agree with these hysterical strictures.
In point of fact, it would be exceedingly difficult to locate any person possessing even a modicum of sanity who would believe any of the weird fulminations of the Pentecostals. In his weird Book of Revelation the lunatic John of Patmos claimed he foresaw that in the last days the world would turn away from God in order to worship and follow Satan.
Such a prophecy would have seemed believable to previous generations, but not so in our more enlightened and secular humanist day. Hard-core Satanism has been called by rabid Pentecostals noise-makers as: Why most health news is fake news.Frank J.
Donner. This is significant in the case of Donner because, as the committee said in its report on the Communist lawyer, “A Communist owes his primary loyalty to an international revolutionary conspiracy, masterminded in Moscow toward complete enslavement of the earth’s people.
To help answer these questions, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) assembled researchers, prison officials, private service providers, and proponents and opponents of prison privatization on March 28, , to discuss this complicated and often controversial issue.
Private Prisons essaysIn recent decades, there has been a trend developing in America towards the privatization of America's prisons. Independent companies have contracted, built and staffed prisons in several different states instead of having the government in control of these facilities.
Research Papers on Ethics. Writing an ethics research paper can present some unique challenges.
An ethics research paper will generally require you to argue for a specific position rather than simply present an overview of an issue. Running head: PRISON PRIVATIZATION 1 An Assessment of Prison Privatization Sharon Baumann-Heller ORG Michael Mills August 12, PRISON PRIVATIZATION 2 Abstract Over-crowding in our federal, state, and local prisons, along with a depressed economy, has resulted in a trend toward privatization of these facilities.
[Eugene Volokh, PM] SMALL FACTOID I FORGOT TO MENTION ABOUT THE NUREMBERG FILES CASE: A reader reminds me that I neglected to mention an interesting fact about the Nuremberg Files case -- the dissenters were liberal Democratic appointees Reinhardt and Berzon, and conservative Republican appointees Kozinski, O'Scannlain, and Kleinfeld.
