    My wife has a gift with children. We all know that a child can spot a phony. The children love her because she's gentle, sincere, genuine and authentic. She's involved in the children's ministry and has years of experience.

    What do I do at "my church"? Well, I'm not a teacher. I'm not "apt to teach". Not a councilor. I take a more practical approach to ministry. If someo ...[text shortened]... but not like me. God is so very kind and gentle and infinitely patient.

    He gonna get you boy! 😉
    It's great that you are helping people and I respect that.
    But you don't need a religion to do that.

    I'm sure your wife is a lovely lady and helps people.
    But please don't let her indoctrinate children.

    The two of you would make fine atheists.

    I know more than you think suz, and you don't say Shut up IF you're a lady you say: Please be quiet. Too easy to pull you chains, like I said you have to get tougher skinned if you expect to last or do any good as leader of a clan!!!

    Luckily you have a fairly strong cast of players behind you!!! 😉 Watch your own number of timeouts especially in your clan games. 561 i ...[text shortened]... ess of course you were sick and couldn't put your vacation flag up, or vacation time ran out.

    I don't like the format of changing the time limits if, after x-games, the match is a draw. Blitz is a different game. There is a blitz world championship, and the WC should not be confused with the blitz WC. Otherwise, you might as well fall back on correspondence chess time limits to break a tie. But correspondence chess is a different game; they should not be mixed up.

    What's wrong with simply declaring that, in the event of a tie after x-games, the champion retains his title? Happened in the match Lasker-Schlechter. Happened in the matches Botvinnik-Bronstein, Botvinnik-Smyslov, Kasparov-Karpov (1987). So what? Why should there have to be a plus score? You have to beat the champion to take his crown; fair enough.

    Many founding fathers, like John Jay, wanted a state religion... Moreover, the interpretations of this are thoroughly broad, which is exactly why In God We Trust was minted on our money and the initial years focused on the notion of no sect being favored over another, or simply as religion not being a means of discrimination, not for a French rote style hard secularism.
    I am a coin collector and know exactly who ordered the phrase "In God We Trust" be placed upon our coinage. It was not a Founding Father, they were all dead by that time.

    We (dem and repub alike) def shouldcare about this person. Socialism doesn’t work. I’d think she knows that. And Here is a strange.... knowing full well that there are socialists in this forum, why is it never proffered for discussion, never touted by them?
    I'm not a big fan of Socialism.
    But maybe you could start by enlightening us all on why Socialism doesn't work.
    But first, get off on the right foot by telling us what Socialism is.

    Not trying to belittle or insult you.
    But too many people out there trashing Socialism without even knowing what it is.

    Well, I'm not a teacher. I'm not "apt to teach". Not a councilor. I take a more practical approach to ministry. If someone needs a car, I have a few sitting around I'd give away. A medical or an electric bill is overdue, I can take care of it. I have certain strengths and abilities. I solve problems. You might say I'm like spiritual muscle. (Metaphorically speaking) For example, if there's a one that is causing divisions, I identify the cause and eliminate it.
    Presumably "divisions" means differences of opinion between people. But if, by your own admission, you have neither the skills of a teacher nor the skills of a counsellor, how can you "eliminate" differences of opinion?

    If a girl/woman are in these forums they know politeness is not always carried out. You of all girls/women should know this!!! 😉 Now that you are leader of a Clan you are going to have to learn to become much more tough skinned than you now are!!! 😛 😉

    Oh Clueless One: There are no Neanderthals in my clan. The men in my clan are all gentlemen of the highest order. Being the Misfit Queen means I don't have to tolerate riff-raff in my clan.

    And I'm afraid you don't know what "tough-skinned" is. It certainly isn't putting up with testosterone-laden baloney.

    After about 30 seconds Fry mentions "the mythical EU dragon".

    This seems to be a popular way to ridicule those who are critical of the EU. "Oh, you probably see the EU as some kind of scary monster under your bed. A spooky ghost. An overlord conspiracy. Some kind of mythical dragon. Haha."

    That's one strike for mr. Fry. Shall now continue watching.

    Well you could still post your beautifully crafted apology here (maybe not naming the person directly) and it will move their heart?
