SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22nd: We need to start rallying at local levels and expand state by state. It’s time for the working class to be represented and taken care of. We don’t want to continue giving tax handouts to corporations while small businesses collapse. We don’t want endless military spending while our roads and schools need funding. We need a movement, we need change. If you’re interested in organizing, let’s get in contact. Power to the people. I hope to see everyone who can make it to Chicago!

Now I know this is fake but it is also very believable and actually surprising that this movie hasn’t been protested by Liberals yet lol. I hope I didn’t give any Liberals any ideas with this post now for them to think of another reason to feel offended by something so stupid. But that is what their party is made up of, bunch of cry baby snowflakes as @tomilahren says.
Make sure to give a follow to my partners-
So Sprankle believes in the virgin birth? Is that what he’s trying to say? Cause it really sounds like it. Apparently he just disagrees with the method?
Anyway, we all know that Mary did give verbal consent (recorded in Luke 1:38 for those who want to check.) For those of you who’d like to have a serious and respectful conversation about the sovereignty of God and human free will, please DM me. I’d be glad to discuss that issue more fully with you.
However, I’d like to take the current discussion in another direction. Contemporary readers of the text, unaware of the culture in the first century, forget the implications of what Mary’s “Yes” meant. For being found with child outside marriage, she could have been stoned to death. If Roman officials prevented that, her fiancé would likely refuse to marry her, thus subjecting her to public shame for the rest of her life. Her parents might even disown her and leave her to fend for herself.
And women couldn’t just go get a job in the first century. So possible starvation. So Sprankle’s uninformed comment about God punishing her if she refused? What the heck? Her agreement, as far as she knew, meant she’d have a hell of a lot to pay by giving consent. So he has no idea what he’s talking about.
Let us take a moment to consider what her act of faith has done for us. Mary undoubtedly knew Isaiah’s prophecy concerning the child who was to come ( Is. 9:6-7) and the angel’s words echo this prophecy (Luke 1:32-33). This child would bring peace and his kingdom would never end. Her faith in God’s salvation brought us our salvation. Let us be grateful for that fact.
Returning to the current topic, perhaps the men who try to discuss matters they know nothing about should pay more attention to preventing and punishing actual rape on the campuses where they work.
Thanks for reading!
Wait a minute.... how did I not know that since Nov. 8th Fox News has been doing a silent boycott against Twitter, did anybody know?🙈
Shows how much I’ve been paying attention to Fox News or Twitter lately
