  1. Yes, that is what he's trying to say in the article. That God let man have the free choice to sin and go against him but that then he must face the consequences. That's why he's opposed to the Pope changing the prayer because Pope Francis would ultimately be changing the entire nature of original sin and morality in christianity. I think he puts it best at the end- So, if we want to keep the Christian experience alive, let us resist the temptation to purge from it all »problematic« passages. They are the very stuff which confers on Christianity the unbearable tensions of a true life.
  2. It's ultimately a question of "did God lead us into temptation or did he let us fall from him into Satan's hands?" I think the different viewpoints are expressed well in this article. https://thephilosophicalsalon.com/political-correctness-goes-to-the-vatican/ Pope Francis usually displays the right intuitions in matters theological and political. Recently, however, he committed a serious blunder in endorsing the idea, propagated by some Catholics, of changing a line in the Lord’s Prayer. The prayer’s contentious bit asks God to “lead us not into temptation”: “It is not a good trans
  3. "All are not created on equal terms, but some are preordained to eternal life, others to eternal damnation; and, accordingly, as each has been created for one or other of these ends, we say that he has been predestinated to life or to death." That's just one of the many theological arguments.
  4. In the christian belief, man WAS perfect but sinned against God in the Garden of Eden. After eating the forbidden apple man was given original sin and had to repent by turning to the christian faith and admitting that he was born in sin. That's where free will comes in. Now some sects like the Calvinists don't believe in free will and believe in predestination but they're really such a small minority today that I didn't bring them up. Here is a very brief overview of the concept from Wikipedia- John Calvin rejected the idea that God permits rather than actively decrees the damnation of si
  5. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/national-debt-at-highest-level-since-after-wwii/ National debt at highest level since after WWII Despite President Trump's declaration that he would eliminate the national debt over eight years, the debt-to-Gross Domestic Product ratio has reached its highest level since after World War II, according to a new report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). And if current law and spending levels remain unchanged, national debt will be nearly the size of the economy by 2028. "At 78 percent of gross domestic product, federal debt held by the public i
  6. Violent Midnight (a father's murder is labelled an accident but is revealed to have a different cause at the very end of the movie) Next: set in Tahiti
  7. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-45897503 Viktoria Marinova: Suspect in journalist murder extradited Germany has extradited a man suspected of murdering Bulgarian journalist Viktoria Marinova. Severin Krasimirov was arrested last week in the German town of Stade, near Hamburg. Bulgaria's interior minister said Mr Krasimirov's DNA matched evidence recovered from the crime scene. Ms Marinova was attacked while jogging in a park in her hometown of Ruse on 6 October. She was raped, beaten and died of suffocation. Bulgarian prosecutors have said there is no ev
  8. Free will doesn't necessarily negate christian teaching. In christian theology, people have the free will to sin or follow the christian path.
  9. I don't think so. In Jason X, he uses axes, knives and even skewers people on futuristic piston looking things in the spaceship.
  10. I'm glad you liked it. It's probably the best "red western." I agree that the scenes with Vereschagin, Petrukha and Gyulchatai in particular were very dark but moving.
  11. I actually really like this series. Just watching an evil man stalking some clueless people for an hour and a half is actually pretty fun. I like the first few films of the series best but of the newer ones, Jason X has some charm to it. It really satirizes the earlier films and the slasher genre in general.

(Tribune News Service) — The former head of oceanography and meteorology for the Navy argued for more funding for research to understand the impact of climate change while delivering the keynote speech at a science symposium at the University of Rhode Island on Tuesday.

But an argument made by a United Conservative MLA in Alberta this week is new. As Tom Vernon reports, the argument involves communism. An Alberta MLA has drawn parallels between the legalization of marijua
  14. Ocasio-Cortez defends being politically illiterate. If you're running for office then you should be expected to have some idea what you're talking about. I don't see what's wrong with having "a defined political ideology."
  15. Love - the mother of an ideological opponent who has been imprisoned is led to believe he is in America. This was a bit touching in places but kind of bored me. \ Yesenia - This movie from Mexico is about a carefree gypsy and a strict military man who fall in love. This one is a sappy drama. I didn't really care for it.
  16. When We Pick Apples - Kye Ok and Jong Ok are sisters who work at the same apple orchard. Jong Ok wishes to not waste any apples and considers it shocking to see so many fallen apples rotting on the ground and makes up her mind to save more of them for the people, as required by the party whereas Kye Ok cares more about her husband and individual life than helping and tending to the apple orchard. This movie is about conserving resources and sharing them with everyone as opposed to wasting and disregarding like in "the old Feudal order." The girls' grandfather even reminds them of how he used t
  17. Lulu the Tool - A worker is wounded while on the job. This leads him to fight for better worker rights in his factory. This is a very good for Gian Maria Volonte, an actor known for spaghetti westerns. The composer Morricone has a cameo near the end of this.
  18. How Tasty Was My Little Frenchman - This movie is based off of the life of Hans Staden. A Frenchman is captured by the Portuguese who are in turn attacked by a warring tribe. The tribe believes the Frenchman to be Portuguese and argue over whether they should eat him. The Frenchman says if they eat him his God will be mad. This movie is a very authentic recreation of the time period and is very well made. The entire movie is mostly Tupi, the native language of this very tribe. It is definitely worth a look.

SYDNEY – Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is facing international backlash over his decision to consider officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The position echoes U.S. President Donald Trump’s controversial decision
  21. According to the Wall Street Journal, the colleges even listed her as "woman of color" and she has also called herself an Indian and implied her mother suffered racism from it. Uh, her mother is only 1/500th Indian! Personally, I am a small percentage Buryat but would absolutely not consider myself an East Asian person. To go on like that is the lowest form of identity politics and smacks of pandering. That said, I agree with the others on Trump at least. He shouldn't have gone on with his "Pocahontas" nickname and what not and just tried to have composure but asking that of Trump is obviousl
  22. From Russia- https://sputniknews.com/russia/201810171068957736-blast-kerch-dead/ Initially, the incident was thought to have been a gas explosion, however subsequent reports from the college revealed that it was an explosive device that caused the deaths of 18 people. “We are clarifying the information at the moment. Preliminary figures are 50 injured and 10 dead. Eight ambulance crews are working at the site and air medical services are involved,” the press-service for the Crimean Ministry of Health stated. Medics announced that at least 50 people were injured i
