Police are investigating whether an independent federal candidate committed a hate crime by telling high school students homosexuals should be executed.

David Popescu was invited to participate in a federal candidates' discussion at Sudbury Secondary School on Tuesday. He made the comment after a student asked his opinion of gay marriage.

Within hours, the Greater Sudbury Police Service said they were investigating.

"We are actively conducting a criminal investigation in this matter," deputy police chief Frank Elsner said.

The police service plans to share its evidence with the provincial Attorney General's office, which will provide direction on whether or not a criminal charge is warranted. More than 200 students gathered in the school's auditorium to hear candidates from the NDP, Liberal Party and the First Peoples National Party.

Popescu introduced himself with a public prayer, blaming environmental damage and economic unrest on the wickedness of society. His comments were met with silence as some students grimaced and shifted in their seats.

Near the end of the more than two-hour event, students were invited to ask the candidates questions. As a long line of pupils waited to speak, Popescu told a young female student who asked about stem cell research that, "God would hurt" those who had an abortion.

The crowd jeered and many rose to their feet in protest after Popescu answered another teenager's question on gay marriage.

During a telephone interview later in the day, Popescu reasserted his view.

"A young man asked me what I think of homosexual marriages and I said I think homosexuals should be executed," he said. "My whole reason for running is the Bible and the Bible couldn't be more clear on that point."

A person who does not believe in God for what can only be one of two reasons:

1) They have not been told the truth that God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, down to Earth and sacrificed Him in order to save EVERY SINGLE PERSON to come after Him. They do not know yet that there has been a holy death in order to lift their sins from them and that they can be FORGIVEN eternally if they simply oper their heart to the love of Christ.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

2) They are aware of the truth regarding Christianity and God but are simply too afraid of how to go about "becoming" a Christian or what people will think of them if they do that they brush off religion as "unproven" and prefer to justify every teeny tiny amazing aspect of beauty on this planet as a work of "science" and pretend to feel content.

There is absolutely NOTHING that can fill the emptiness of the human soul completely except for Jesus Christ. DO NOT settle for being an Atheist when there is something truly so much better out there.

Deceitfully, Faith Hill professes to be a "Christian"; but her life denies her claim. Miss Hill often dresses and flaunts herself like a whore, thus causing lasciviousness in the heart's of men--this is heathendom! Faith Hill is appropriately featured in SELF magazine, for she is very selfish to hurt families the way she is doing. Anytime a woman strips down and causes men to lust after her, other women and children PAY for it! It is NO coincidence that child-sexual-assaults have skyrocketed in direct proportion to the moral meltdown in America and Europe! When women in society take their clothes off in public, every sexual sin imaginable results. Sexual lust is a POWERFUL desire, which is why God is so STRICT concerning women's attire in the Word of God. 1st Timothy 2:9 states in no uncertain terms, "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel..." We read in Deuteronomy 22:5, "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God." Any child knows that men wear pants, and women wear dresses--just look at ANY bathroom sign. The women's sign ALWAYS shows a woman in a dress! Faith Hill puts herSELF above God by dressing immodestly. Pants on a woman identifies her with a rock-n-roll culture of sexual sins, substance abuse, and rebellion against God.

There are disturbing things in the “Dora the Explorer: Dance to the Rescue” DVD. This is potentially the most dangerous and blasphemous cartoon I have yet reviewed for this site. Not only does this disc promote SATANISM and PAGANISM but it also propagates THE NEW COMMUNISM as an Unholy Trinity. First, Dora, a force for the false belief in cultural relativism and the rejection of GOD’S TRUTH disguised as educational television, is accompanied in her adventures by a TALKING GOAT during her adventures on this DVD.

What Garvan says about the guy in Missouri is true. It happened in one of our churches in a neighboring congregation.

His parents were homeschooling him and carefully selecting readings that accorded with the Christian worldview. Their first mistake came when they allowed him to read the Narnia books, which they thought reflected the Bible despite the magical elements. I can't remember exactly how he got his hands on Harry Potter, but it was something like he went to a bookstore one time with an auntie who asked him what kinds of books he liked, and he said "Narnia", so she bought him a Harry Potter book.

That night, he awoke in a cold sweat screaming. His parents kept asking him was what the matter and he replied using strange words that they hadn't heard before. Under the covers of his bed they found one of the Harry Potter books, he had read about three-fourths of it. He wasn't able to function normally and his parents sent him to a Christian counsellor, who suggested sending him to a Christian camp for psychologically-disturbed children.

When Pastor K came to hear of this story, he related it to us in a memorable sermon called "Hogwarts: Hogwash". He also told us that there is a homosexual character in the books, which hardly seems appropriate for children. And he said that even though Lewis and Tolkien claimed to be Christians, we should not be wary of letting our children read their books or watch the films, because children may confuse fantasy with reality. (e.g. many children poke around in the wardrobe after reading C.s. Lewis, hoping to find a magical kingdom there, just as children try summoning up the Devil after reading Harry Potter) I myself read Lewis and Tolkien and enjoyed them before I was saved, but if Nancy and I are lucky enough to be blessed with children, we will not be permitting our children to read this material. Any other parent should think hard before sending their children into this world of uncertainty.

Q: How many fields of science have to be flawed for creationism to be valid?

"Actually none. All that would have to be done away with are methods that have proven flawed, such as you mentioned, radiometric dating. However, that doesn't throw out all work done in Nuclear Physics or concepts that work. Carbon dating also has to be thrown out because testing on material from Mt. St Helens erruption proved that new material can date old even when we know it's real age. However, to accept evolution you have to ignor many chemistry and biology scientists who keep asking for more time in order to make evolution probable. You also have to throw out everything we know about the linguistic evolution. Languages have historically become simpler since the beginning of recorded history. The more complex languages have died, and the languages still surviving are morphing to simpler and simpler versions. Language is in essence de-evolving over time. Are we to think the neanderthals spoke a highly complex tonal language which all of our many languages have evolved from? Evolution only happens in the real world as complex to simple. It doesn't happen the other way around. Therefore we could not have evolved from apes. Our ancestors had the most complex language."

this country... are we talking about the same country. maybe not. i live in the united states of america. a country established by theists mostly influinced by Christians. if you want an secular atiestic state try communism. i'm sure some of you would love that, they kill christians in china for spreading thought polution. or maybe you'd like a government set up on the principals of darwinism. ... like hitler's germany. pure blood lines and the master race and all that. if a whole contry allows ethnic cleasing to occur it doesn't make it right in my book. to day we have gay/transgender rights issues, i can sympatize with that. how about petaphelia, bestiality, why not let a man marry his pet sheep. is that ok? how about polygamy? should we have that? who knows they have it in the bible right?

I really have no idea. Could happen that way or perhaps the Lord has a less dramatic approach planned.

However, I have to admit... Several times, I've walked back to my office from McDonald's holding a bag a burgers and fries. On that walk back, I'd often think, "if the rapture we're to happen right now, somebody's gonna get a free lunch out of this - probably their last decent meal for quite a while!"

I'm not claiming to be any kind of a prophet (God forbid!) and I'm not trying to spread fear ... but, folks, persecution of the true followers of Jesus Christ is the coming reality .. a reality that is already here but is gathering momentum.

Those of us who stand for the eternal truth of God's Word and reject all attempts to change, weaken, alter, or twist it to something other than what it is will indeed be the recipients of scorn; rejection; character attacks; and far, far worse. I truly believe that we will be the victims of severe persecution, a persecution that will be spearheaded by the so-called Evangelical church and its leaders who have become what is now termed the Emergent church.

Quote# 52737

They really aren't interested in marriage. What they want to do is destroy the archaic institutions that are a bulwark against a loose moralled society.

The LAST people on earth to want marriage are gays. They are the most promiscuous group in society. But if they disrupt and break down the traditional institutions, then they can more easily spread their ilk.

In the US, single parent households are 25%, but in Norway where they have gay marriage, 38% are single parent households.

That's quite a greater breakdown with gay marriage allowed to subvert the value and sanctity of marriage. These gays are fighting excruciatingly hard for something they really have no intent on honoring themselves.

We are living in a very depressing season.

The will of the people limited the rights of a man to marry his adult daughter; mother to mary her adult son; and an adult brother to marry his adult sister. You see, marriage has always had restrictions on it that were and always have been CONSTITUTIONAL. This whole gay marriage thing as some special right does not fly.

This subject is so close to my heart...since my brother-in-law is gay...he has wanted to take my sons...one at a time...during summer break...my sons are 13 and 15...I have been coming up with excuse after excuse...I truly am not afraid that my brother-in-law would ever touch them..but he lives in the heart of the gay section in his city..and he only goes to gay establishments...even his apartment only has gays in it...that makes me fearful for my sons....my brother-in-law tells me that "gays are not pedophiles and would never touch a child!!!' But I have to wonder since he started his dabbling at the age of 15! I love him, but I just can't accept his lifestyle. I know we live in an age where tolerance of almost every perversion is supposed to be cool...but in the bible it tells me something different....and I don't see tolerance for sin in the pages of that wonderful book...if we accept everything...and try not to rock anyones boat...then we have lost our witness completely. We need to witness to gays in a loving way..without hitting them over the head with the Word...but they need to hear what God thinks about their sexual choice.

Jock gives us a "special" view of the world. Thanks, Jock. The short bus is waiting for you. Now, this supposed "theocrats" of the last 8 years is an absolute media invention. Look at the various college with "gay studies" departments. Any scholar that even mentions "intelligent design" is fired from academic. It's getting so bad that some professors at major college do not dare admit they go to a church for fear it may damage their tenure. Also, this article does not mention the global warming sceptics. Many objective scientists have found that the global warming can be traced to lack of particulates in the air and that can be traced to lack of volcanic activity. Next, the sun may be going into a major cooling phase. The last sixteen years was a period of high solar activty. Yet to write on those two objective things went against the religion of global warming. The left wing has more sacred cows than the right. They just have friends at Disney who can write an article making themselves seem oppressed when just the opposite has been true.

ANYTHING is possible. The Great Delusion must be something so easily believable because of HOW we're raptured. Again scripture says it's a great mystery and that's probably a good thing.

See how all the End Time movies make up rapture scenarios as if they were Truth? Now, unbelievers may be seeking THAT kind of rapture and when it doesn't occur like that, they won't think it's the Rapture that's been spoken of so much. They'll be easily deluded.

As for anything being left behind that's also conjecture. It's possible that in our "renewal" or "change" that those things just disappear or disintegrate.

I think the End Times movies have done a great disservice. They've made conjecture and personal interpretation into accepted truth/fact.

And if the green movement ( worship of creation) is to be the one world religion, oh how it will be said that mother nature is so angry at us. A juicy lie of Satan.

(A bit of a two-for-one)

An Open Bible in every office of Government


I think we should, as conservatives, add an approach to our agenda that cannot be silenced by anyone. And that is the personal expression of religion in the government. No one can stop a legislator, a judge or even the Governor or President, from having a Bible open in their office, or in their sessions. It simply is not an issue.

It is the public expression of a private individual in a way that brings attention, maybe even agitation, but is completely harmless to any rational person. No one should mind it; because likewise the Muslim legislator should have his Qu'ran opened if he feels it is so prudent, the Jew the Torah or Hebrew Bible.

And so forth.

I think this should be mentioned by conservatives and we should get a petition going to get some of our faithful brothers in office to do this.

(And this is his signature)
"Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged." Means to Judge only when you are not a hypocrite.

Okay, as long as you're sure....you might want to have a little conversation with God about that, "I don't believe same sex marriage is necessarily sinful" thing though.

He may disagree with you. He made the design. He may have some input.

Then you'll need to decide what to do with THAT.

Can you tell me what benefits a person to be 'same-sex married'....why is that's good and defendable?

So many of my family members have different views and it can be frustrating at times. I've taken to listening, waiting for a moment to interject and then say something like, "this is foretold in the Bible." I have to smile to myself because they try to continue with what they are saying without missing a beat. A steadfast rule in our family is religious freedom and tolerance which means we can all express our views. Even so, I'm the only one that says, "this is foretold in the Bible."

My 7 year old is smart enough to look at his toys and know they didn't just get there by chance. Those toys did not just evolve out of a premordial soup, no, those simple toys had a Maker.
How much more so the complexity of the Sun, or even our cells, so complex, but we are expected to believe that something that complex just arrived by chance.
You can believe that, but as for me, I believe in God, and I believe that God came down in the person of Jesus to save us from our sins.

Well I have a cousin who asked if she could bring a friend to our Thanksgiving dinner. I said sure no problem there is always enough. Well she came with her friend and she was very nice. Teaches at KU, very likeable. Well as the day progressed I asked my cousin if her husband was coming. She replied " well I have an announcement". "I am getting divorced and I am gay and this is my partner ___". Well needless to say I was floored as well as my dh. Nobody else was upset about it. Fast forward to 2 years ago. They wanted a baby so they ordered donor sperm and used a turkey baster ( will never use another one again) and well one got pregnant. Well the baby a boy has had several problems and been in the hospital alot. No one in my family believes me when I tell them God did not intend for women to have children using a turkey baster and maybe that has something to do with the little boy having so many troubles. Two women or two men can not create a baby and maybe people need to think that cheating God is not such a good idea. My family thinks I am nuts. Needless to say I do not host family Thanksgiving dinners anymore except for immediate family.
