Apr 30th 2011 2:03AM I just figured all the wrinkles (especially in the skirt) were just from a quick job on the way to the wedding.
Dec 29th 2010 9:27PM Craigo - I don't know when it became all right to kill people when a person is angry with them, or to kill unborn babies, but it is not all right to gently and caringly euphanize an animal. Oh, I know, when we learned we were all animals. So now tame animals are, as if, not more important than people. I hate to tell all these people that the most humane thing to do with all these starving animals there evidently are is to take them out of their misery. They won't listen but rather spend lots of money or at least Ellen's money, and then we become the bad guys. All I can do is pray for these misled people who go after their own ways instead of the ways of God.
Dec 29th 2010 8:23PM True, but it will be a new earth where a lion lays down with a lamb and a bear will eat grass. A child will be able to play with an asp and not be hurt. Not quite the earth we know today.
Dec 29th 2010 8:20PM Thanks for your comments although I am not sure your endorsement endears me to anyone.
Dec 29th 2010 8:16PM You obviously didn't read the comment about my love for animals, especially cats. I have had cats every year of my life except for in college. I got thrown out of an apartment because I chose to keep my cat. But every cat I have had has been spayed or neutered, which is the responsible thing to do, I am exactly the type of person who should foster kittens because I know how to be a responsible animal careperson.
I am a bit confused by your first comment. Are you speaking of someone particular. I, as a Christian, do not condemn Ellen for her lifestyle. That is her decision to act on or not. People have a right to their feelings whether they agree with yours or mine. I love the person, but not necessarily the choices they make. You are right, we are all to show Christ's love. The best way to do that is to do what Jesus says to do and that is to love and serve all people. Most animals are like people to their owners so although it does not say so in the Bible, it is great to love your pet. Otherwise you should not have one.
Dec 29th 2010 6:05PM I am sorry to sort of harp on this issue, but it really bothers me when people lump all Christians into the same bad group. Perhaps you were commenting more on Christian's attitudes toward gay people. I enjoy Ellen's show and watch it most days. I like her show and what she does. She is really funny and a great dancer. The Bible does NOT tell us to hate gays and that they are horrible sinners. I can love the person, but I may disagree with her lifestyle. She has made it well known she is gay and that is her concern. To me she is an excellent entertainer and obviously one who gives of what she has.
Dec 29th 2010 5:54PM What is the comment against Christians for? Christians do good for animals too. I have a good friend that is a dog rescuer and really gets some hard cases from puppy mills. In what ways are Christians hypocrits? I don't know what your experience with Chrisianity is, but surely you cannot condemn Mother Teresa and St. Francis of Assisi. It depends a great deal on the church you attend. I am not Catholic, yet I do respect the afore mentioned. The church I go to has the goal of eventually putting 1 million dollars a year into our city. They already support food banks, Coats for Kids, Rescue Mission, Salvation Army, homes for the handicapped, unwanted pregnacies, adoption programs and so many I can't name them all. We put our words into actions. I agree there are some hypocritical Christians, but just because they call themselves Christians, does not make them Christians. But there are many who as I said put Christ's love into action.
Dec 29th 2010 5:01PM I just read someone's comment about killing the excess starving animals. I hate it as much as anyone else when a pet or animal has to be put down. At one time it was quite the acceptable thing to do. We all know that when a horse breaks a leg or is seriously in pain, it is often put down. That was considered humane. It would be better for the horse to die than be put through months and months of pain and healing. Often older or sick dogs and cats are put down out of love and concern for their illnesses and quality of life. It is considered humane. But now many shelter's have the no kill rule. Guess what, we have starving, suffering animals now. So millions are being spent so that these animals can continue to suffer spending life in a cage. Is that really humane?
Dec 29th 2010 4:51PM I am not saying that money should not be given for animals. As I said, I love animals too. It is just if I had the money to give I would still choose to support programs that feed people. I am sorry for the comment about enough food is given to shelters, I was wrong in saying that. I just know that the animals in the shelters that I have been to are feed well. Perhaps that isn't true everywhere.
Dec 29th 2010 4:38PM That 10% talked about in the Bible is 10% given to God and his work. I doubt that Ellen has a thing to do with that. We are asked to give the tithe (10%) and offerings. I would put Ellen's giving under this category. If I had billions of dollars to spend I would still give most of it to organizations that train and educate people so they can get better homes, Rescue Mission, Samaritian's Purse and other orgainzations that help my fellow man. Yes, I feel sorry for the animals that are neglected, but what is Ellen going to so, go out into the streets and feed the strays that are not in shelters. Most shelters are given a regular supply of food and those animals in shelters are not the starving ones. Again I say that the over population of poor starving animals is the humans that do not spay and nueter their pets and barn animals. Let them feed their extra animals.
