Re: “Pollution control equipment protested

This woman is nuts. She WANTS rolling power outages?!?!? I guess she does because that is WHAT will happen if we lose Drake before they can get replacement infrastructure in place, which will be about or around 2035.

Re: “Local election poll unsurprising

If you think "cracking" the 2 party system will stop things being about $ and favors, you are delusional. Additionally, if there ever were a string 3rd or 4th party, the result would be the coalition governments found in Europe which fall apart all the time. Also it would be very likely that nobody would receive enough votes resulting in the President being chosen by the House of Representatives.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

I have spent a considerable bit of time with Roxy and I can attest to the fact that she is a wonderful dog. She is obedient and very affectionate. I cannot image this dog hurting anyone. All she want out of life is to play ball and be petted and hugged. My heart breaks every time I think of that sweet dog being locked up all alone. She needs to be around the people who love her and there are a lot of them. The people that dump pit bulls into one category are also the ones that dump people into one category. They don't take the time to really know the facts so they just follow along like sheep.

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

ALL MEN & WOMEN ARE CREATED EQUAL ACCORDING TO OUR US CONSTITUTION! THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE SHOULDN'T BE THE DOCTRINE OF THE WORKPLACE.

Authorship[edit]
The traditional view is that the "I suffer not a woman…" words are Paul's own words. However, some modern scholars believe on the basis of content, vocabulary, and literary style that 1 Timothy, as well as between two and five other Pauline letters (see Authorship of the Pauline epistles), were not written by Paul but are pseudepigraphical.[5] Borg and other contend that this verse fits poorly with Paul's more positive references to Christian women and may be a later interpolation rather than part of the original text.[6] Still others, including scholars/theologians Richard and Catherine Kroeger, believe Paul did write the epistle of 1 Timothy. They present a case for interpreting 1 Timothy 2:12 as a refutation of false teaching, rather than as a narrow restriction on women's role. Their research leads them to conclude that Paul was addressing a particular problem localized in the Church at Ephesus where Timothy was pastor of the multicultural congregation. A primary example of this paradigm permeates the book they co-authored, I Suffer Not a Woman: Rethinking 1 Timothy 2:11-15 in Light of Ancient Evidence. The book presents the Kroegers' well-documented research which sheds new perspectives to this difficult biblical text. They present considerable evidence concerning newly discovered issues and problems Paul was addressing. They argue that the verse must be interpreted in light of careful exegesis of Greek word usage, the Greco-Roman customs and laws of the day, and the outside influences on the Christian churches of the 1st Century. While holding firm to a literal approach to 1 Timothy 2:11-15, the Kroegers' research argues from the background of changes in the Greek language since the 1st century, Roman empire customs at the time the Apostle Paul wrote 1 Timothy, and the problems that the church in Ephesus was facing with pagan religions. The Kroegers' maintain that gnosticism was taking hold of the Christians at Ephesus, and the women, being given less-to-no education in those days, were more prone to be misled by gnostic beliefs. Those authors present the case that those women with gnostic influence were trying to pass on those erroneous beliefs to others in the Church at Ephesus. Hence, their conclusion is that 1 Timothy 2:12 is a time-and-place refutation of false teaching, not a universal Christian principle for all time.
Unclear meaning of the key word[edit]
1 Timothy 2:12 contains a rare Greek verb, found only here in the entire Bible. It is the word authentein which is ordinarily translated "to usurp authority." Therefore, since there is no “control text” to determine its meaning, no one knows for sure what the word means and exactly what Paul is forbidding.[7] Yet despite that uncertainty, most of the more conservative denominations apply the "usurp authority" translation to their restrictions of women's roles in their churches.

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

Were Major Lewis to leave the Good Book open to 1 Tim 2:12 for the enjoyment of any female C.O.s he might have, this problem might solve itself...

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

"...Command decided that Major Steve Lewis could rightfully display his Bible for other service members to see in the work place." Hmmm. The major has that right, I guess, but what does he intend by displaying his open Bible with highlighted passages? Is he not making some point, attempting to advance some non-secular agenda with that display? Sure seems like a distraction to good order and discipline. His field grade influence and this other agenda, and a religious one to boot on his government work desk? I'd say he can believe and express anything PRIVATELY, but not his religion at his US Gov't duty desk.
