Nonhuman "rights" Soon To Be A Reality, I Betcha

21 October 2014 - 09:14 AM

In a world that seems to have gone completely bonkers, here's proof there's more nuts to come...






Human rights may no longer be just for humans. A group called the Nonhuman Rights Project is currently involved in a legal battle to get a 26-year-old chimpanzee named Tommy recognized as a legal person deserving of certain legal rights, such as “bodily liberty and bodily integrity.” The group claims that Tommy “is being unlawfully imprisoned and therefore being deprived of his fundamental common law right to bodily liberty.”


This post could have fit in the evolution forum, but it's also current news.  This is one of the levels of stupidity to which people can sink when they turn their backs on God.

The Never Ending Story...

30 September 2014 - 12:06 PM

I hope this game can be fun - it's got the possibilities of being quite hilarious, actually.  The way to play is this: I will post a beginning statement that will start a story.  You (whoever) follow up with another statement and so on and so forth.  The story can go any direction, depending on what you post.  So, let's go!   :clapping:


It was a dark and stormy night, and I was all alone when all of a sudden...




Update On Bro. Cloud

From his wife:


To Those Who Prayed,

From my heart I wish to thank each person who offered prayers of petition for my husband's recovery. Until we sent out notice that he was in the hospital, the situation looked very grave. The doctors said there had been no improvement and downgraded his status from "acute" to "serious." With pancreatitis, that is not a good sign as that meant other organs were being negatively affected and anything could go wrong at any moment. The doctors said they had done all they could, but that he wasn't improving. In other words, they painted a grim picture. However, as soon as I sent out notice of his condition, people around the world began praying. Within 12 hours there was obvious improvement! This was totally in answer to prayer.

There would be other problems that would crop up from time to time in the hospital, and each time we prayed those problems would be resolved. The biggest was the fact that during his first eight days, he was oxygen dependent and could not breathe normally without the oxygen. On the eighth day he asked our church leaders for special prayer for that and within a few minutes he was able to breathe fine and able to totally discontinue the use of oxygen. The change was immediate and dramatic and was very definitely in answer to prayer.

One more thing I'd like to do is thank those of you who said you were praying for me. I never dreamed anyone would pray for me in the midst of all of this and it was very humbling to learn that all over the world just that was happening. (We heard from people in 37 countries.) Thank all of you so much. Through everything that happened, I found it true (again) that God's grace is sufficient. I experienced the peace that passes understanding and not one moment did I have to endure anxiety or tension. Of course I felt bad for David when he was in pain and struggling to breathe. But a divine comfort of peace was there cushioning my soul through everything.

Thank you for your prayers. We can report that they were 100% effective! Praise our Dear Lord!

From the Harvest Field,

Urgent Request For David Cloud

22 August 2014 - 12:13 PM

An email was sent out today about David Cloud. He has been in the hospital on the mission field for the last several days. He has pneumonia, a swollen pancreas, and swollen intestines. He will be in the hospital for a while as they try to clear up the pneumonia and get his pancreas functioning normally.  Here is from his wife this morning:


"His condition has been changed from Acute to Serious and the doctors most likely will move him to ICU. Only our pleadings have kept him out so far, because there is no privacy and no resting in ICU with the constant noise. His pancreas has not shown signs of improving. They are keeping him off of all foods and liquids, which of course has made him much weaker. His oxygen level drops significantly when he is off of oxygen for a few minutes.  If his pancreas does not kick in and begin working properly, then other organs can begin to become damaged and it could be a downhill road from there. I have peace as I know the Lord does the right thing at all times. But we do covet prayers and thank those who are praying.:

I thought of a game that I hope will be fun - entertaining, at least.  I was thinking the other day about how many people on here live somewhere that someone else once did, or have connections in another way - no matter how obscure it seems.  So...here's how the game works.


When someone posts something that links to you, you post how it links to you, and then put in a couple of facts about yourself that someone else might link to.


For example:

I might say that my hubby and son are Buckeyes.  And that at one time I lived in Oklahoma.  I also take piano lessons.  The next poster could pick up on any of these things, with a connection they have to it.  Does that make sense? Hope so - and I hope everyone enjoys playing along....Here we go:


I was born in Seattle, WA, ergo - I love rain.  :icon_smile:  My "granddogger" is a chihuahua/miniature pinscher mix. Northwestern Indiana summers are muggy.
