Star Wars: The Force Awakens' New Star Destroyer Has A Terrifying Name

The USS Trump, no -- wait:

The folks at Star Wars 7 News got their hands on a photo from an upcoming Star Wars book called Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy. The image shows a schematic drawing of the massive new vessel, reportedly a tool of the First Order, and also reveals the name: Finalizer.

Pope Francis Praises Italian Children's Book Featuring Gay Penguins

Piccolo Uovo (Little Egg) by author Francesca Pardi tells the story of an eggs encounters with different family types: a pair of gay penguins raising a baby penguin, lesbian rabbits, a single parent hippo, and even a kangaroo that has adopted a polar bear cub.

(If it happens regularly - like, every night you wake up at 3:15 in the morning and you look out your window and see your daughter hanging out with her new friend Jody - then you have cause for concern. Jody doesn't like you.)

19 From Houston, they caught the murderer early this morning who murdered the deputy sheriff in Houston last night. Execution style.... or more accurately, cartel style. Shot in the back of the head and then multiple times as he stood over the officers body. The scum went to his Mom's house.... and thankfully she called the cops and told them where to find him.

25 In Shocking Div 1 Football news, The Fighting Illini did put up a fight but lost their opener to Kent State, yes people, you read that right, Kent State. 54-52 was the final score as Kent State kicked a 82 yard Field Goal at the buzzer to win.

Not only did the Field Goal set a record but in dramatic fashion the ball bounced off the crossbar not once, not twice, not three times, but four times.

Comments from the Kicker could not be obtained. He will probably miss at least a month after imbibing a gallon an a half of very bad Ukrainian Vodka in celebration and is suffering the effects of alcohol poisoning.

That's never a good thing -- the best defense is acting like Jory's the bomb diggity then periodically asking leading questions that make your daughter think in her quiet time & when Jody does things that give your daughter pause.

54 first insanity story of the day: from weaselzippers:

Moonbats At U Of Tennessee Tells Staff To Stop Using 'He' And 'She', And Use 'Xe', 'Zyr' and 'Xyr' Instead

....

The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other 'he', 'she', 'him' and 'her' - and to start referring to one another with terms like 'xe', 'zir' and 'xyr' instead.

The Knoxville branch of the public university sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody's gender.

According to a gay rights official at the university, the new language regime will make the university 'welcoming and inclusive' and stop people feeling 'marginalized'.


[We personally think this are an good idea. We will begin by referring to Hillary, Biden, etc by using such gender-neutral terms as "liar" 'trash" and "shithead". And "trash" has the double plus benefit of also being singular or plural.]

Post-dated Check Loan from "Schlock Mercenary" is pretty good, too. The ship chooses its own name, being essentially an AI with a hull around it, and is dismayed when the crew immediately shorten it to PD and then to Petey.

Could never understand why these people in the drug business just didnt take what they earned and retired. They said Escobar was making 60 million a day at his height. Now I'm sure he made a lot less for a lot longer and expenses were high since the business model relied on bribes, but still, you would think that with a few million you could be happy anywhere doing nothing.

I suspect that it isn't quite safe to relinquish the reins of power in that business. Once you get on the wolf's back, you have to keep riding it to stay away from its teeth. Of course, if you are the type of person who can make it to the top of that kind of business, you aren't likely to want to hand over power to begin with.

106 Of course, there are several ideas about "On this rock I will build my church." which people generally know about. The first is that it has to do with Peter being the first human head of the church and the line of the papacy being continued from him. The other is that it's Peter's confession which is the rock- that Christ is the Messiah, the chosen one of God." Then there's a third idea that links the two-that Peter's confession is fundamental but that's he also the "Rock" (the meaning of the name Peter in Aramaic and Greek) since he was a crucial figure in the early church. Debates about Papal supremacy, IMO seem to go nowhere and just lead to vitriolic arguments between Catholics and Protestants and Eastern Orthodox.

The Pope is not the church. His political ideas are not doctrine. If one were to look at the history of the church there have been some very bad Popes yet the church continued. People are not required by canon law to read a book about gay penguins and like it. It is highly unlikely that this Pope will try to change the doctrine on marriage which is clearly spelled out and which, I think he accepts.

So, yes, people who are Catholic can get agitated about what the Pope says about this or climate change or various social justice issues and say "I haven't been in church in 30 years" or they can go back to church, go to confession and take delight in the sustaining Sacrament of their faith- the Eucharist- read the Scriptures.read the lives and works of the Saints, serve others and enjoy their fellowship and pray. People who are not Catholic but are also Christians can go to church (or not), fix their eyes on Jesus, sing the great hymns of the faith, hopefully get something out of the message, study the Scriptures. read the lives and works of great Christians, serve others and hopefully enjoy the fellowship of fellow Christians .

The main thing, it seems to me- is the process of being transformed into the image of Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit. It is, (getting back to the rock imagery) as 1 Corinthians 10:4 says, to "drink from the same spiritual drink for they drank from the spiritual rock which fed them and that rock was Christ"

The head of my denomination (Locally) is a much more liberal than I am. He often says or writes things I disagree with but he is a man of prayer and loves Jesus and others, so I just try to accept the good along with the things I find problematic and continue in my Christian walk.

The beefy Pro Bowler made the call at 5:30 a.m. on Aug. 23, helping to end a spree of 48 burglaries into unlocked cars in Chatham Township and Chatham Borough in New Jersey, WABC/Channel 7 reported.
Mangold called 911 after hearing his own car alarm sound and finding his garage door open. Cops arrived and took five alleged burglars into custody.

The crooks are lucky he called the police, he is as big as a moving mountain and could have killed them with his bare hands and a hell've of a Center also and a good guy also, which is rare on the Jets

Both I suppose if you consider gay marriage both a theological and a political issue.If the denomination were to approve gay marriage he would accept it too. One thing I do like about him is that he says, "I will not tolerate anyone saying you're not a Christian based simply upon one's stand on gay marriage, either pro or con."

When he speaks on doctrine he sounds pretty orthodox to me. I mean nothing causes me to run shrieking from the room.

106 The whole Rock controversy is pretty simple I think. The word used is petras, NOT petros.
Petros would be Peter, which would give Catholicism the keys to heaven
Petras means a generalized rock, which is the solid truth that Jesus is the Christ.
Catholicism I think prefers the first interpretation to make it seem like they are the narrow path.
Hard-core Catholics believe that only Catholic marriages and baptisms and sacraments are valid so I guess I'm a bastard and my parents were fornicators currently residing in hell.

Good article but it bugs me that people feel compelled to try to be evenhanded, reaching back 20 years to make a horribly flawed comparison :

"For politically committed editors and reporters, a story that is too good to check is one that perfectly confirms their suspicions and prejudices about those they consider the enemy. It’s a phenomenon that exists on the right as well as the left—as evidenced by the bizarre stories in the 1990s claiming that the Clintons were drug smugglers and murderers. "

137 Personally I think it's valid to compare Trump to Hitler - and to Chavez while we're at it.

The politicians have formed a social-class with the government and media, and fail to offer solutions to the rest of the people. So along comes a populist (with a bad past) who has popular solutions (which might not be the right solutions). The lower/middle class supports him because at least he listens (for his own reasons).

Trump of course hasn't attempted a putsch yet (1923 Munich, 1991 Caracas). So there's that.

But hey. If it were up to me the armed-forces would take over the capital and install that Aussie guy from the House of York as king.

O,k, As I said, Max, I find the arguments and finger pointing about whether Protestants or Christians have it "right" as far as Peter and the rock very unhelpful and divisive, and as I say ad nauseum leftists don't care what shingle you have outside your church. if you're a conservative and a Christian you are the enemy. We had better (as Benjamin Franklin said in the context of the American Revolution) "hang together or most assuredly we will all hang separately."

Thanks, MAx. Just found the update. Here's what the local news has to say:

An intense manhunt covered Harris County for hours overnight. At about
2:30am, authorities converged on a home on Crystal Lake in Copperfield,
led there by a tip. The focus of the investigation is on the red pickup
truck in the home's driveway. The person of interest was taken into
custody at what's said to be his mother's house. His identity has not
been released.


The man's mother -- who didn't want to show her
face or give her name -- tells Eyewitness News her son is innocent. She
said, "My son is innocent. I was in the house with him, so when that
happened, my son was home."

I was just reading commentary on the Hugos and the boring mess that is science fiction these days. It's surprising I'm doing so, since I haven't read any in a decade at least, despite once being a rabid fan. I'm doing it largely because writers are finally identifying what the problem is.

I think religion has fallen into a similar problem, though. There was a time I considered reading religious topics sometimes out of interest, but I think it's often more about message than mystery now. Everything seems to pound on about social issues from abortions to gays and to drone on endlessly about what it all means, how to be inclusive, how to adapt to modernity rather than anything resembling eternal anything let alone verities.

so much of the modern world is exceedingly boring in result. Everything is message, message above all. Like living in a world populated by marketing agencies. I've no real answers for that.

Whatever your denomination, there are always options. If you are ELCA, there's LCMS, and WELS. If you are PCUSA, there's PCA, OPC, EPC. If you are ECUSA, there's ACNA. Point is, you are never forced to pay into the liberal system. And make no mistake, if for example, you're an Episcopalian, your tithes WILL go to support NARAL, PP, and pay the salaries of activist priests and bishops who support it. Talk is cheap. Can any action or heresy be justified just because the guy claims "I love Jesus, and I pray a lot". That's a trick homosexual "Christians" use a lot. And no, I'm not Christian, but a lot of the current misery stems from liberals conning and undermining the churches.

million a day at his height. Now I'm sure he made a lot less for a lot
longer and expenses were high since the business model relied on bribes,
but still, you would think that with a few million you could be happy
anywhere doing nothing.>>>

This is a great question I don't have the answer to. But replace Escobar with Pelosi, Reid, Soros or Clinton. It's like the feed on others misery.

He is a very interesting man. He was talking about the difference between "sin" and "evil" a few days ago. Very interesting discussion.

By the way, I have met and spoken with his brother on a few occasions. He is a fine physician (and a kind man) and the head of the medical ethics committee at Columbia.

161 Yeah I grew up on that feelgood religion in the Episcopal church and when I was lucky enough to find a Baptist friend I realized that nothing in my upbringing was relevant to real salvation.

166 I think religion has fallen into a similar problem, though. There was a time I considered reading religious topics sometimes out of interest, but I think it's often more about message than mystery now. Everything seems to pound on about social issues from abortions to gays and to drone on endlessly about what it all means, how to be inclusive, how to adapt to modernity rather than anything resembling eternal anything let alone verities.

I never hear any of that. Mostly I get sermons about feeding the poor and 'clothing the naked'. They NEVER talk about abortion or gay marriage. They focus 100% on allocating things from one group to another, to panhandling and saying salvation is solely from giving tribute to the poor.

It's so utterly out of touch. The poor have EBT cards, and when the f*ck was the last century when somebody was naked who didn't want to be?

Very interesting commentary. Bigby, and I agree with it. That's why I read the religious writers I do who who emphasize the awesome transcendence of God and the sacred mystery of faith. It's there in the Bible of course which is a nice balance of sacred mystery and practical concern. My bottom line is that we in the church should not be simply a social service agency. Faith without works is dead by works without faith is not Christianity. Some Roman Catholics I know spend time in adoration before the Eucharist. They find that very meaningful and sacred. I try to spend time in silence and adoration of God/Christ. In the Protestant tradition we have a great hymn, "Turn your eyes upon Jesus' which gets at the same idea.

172 "The Harris County Sheriff's Office released pics and descriptions of the
shooter and his truck who shot down a Sheriff's Deputy in cold blood
last night."

They repeatedly described the murderer as "dark complexioned" even though there were publicly available video stills which made it clear that the killer was black, and witnesses who spoke to the local media who also made it clear that the killer was black. Why not simply use the obvious descriptive word?

The powers that be appear to be getting extremely nervous about this whole racially motivated murder business, and aren't in any hurry to say *anything* that brings the attention of the general public to the topic.

We don't do silence in my church. Wish we did sometimes. Mostly we whoop and holler a lot. One time I walked out because the drums were too loud. But I'm old. This church's mission is not to old women. It is to young men. That was one of its central purposes when it was started. I think it is a good one. We need less churches filled with old ladies and more churches filled with young men. Just my opinion.

197 Back from a bunch of chores, and I can tell you missed me.

Speaking of the bright side, first day pain-free in a week or more.

Neuritis, neuralgia, bursitis, nostalgia... what wuzzit?

Looked up bursitis last night, and the symptoms fit. But nothing about how they manifested in me. Pain in right shoulder for a day. Then in left shoulder for a day. Then, left elbow. Left wrist. Left hand. Right wrist. All for one day each. The climax was, back to the right shoulder in sharp agony - can barely raise my arm or hardly think for the pain - for a day and a half. Then, all better. What the f is up with that?

The illustration of an inflamed bursa in the shoulder sure looked just like how mine felt, though.

Causes and cures for bursitis were especially good.
• Warm up before exercise - sure, sure.
• Don't do things that inflame the bursas. Right.
• Be under forty - oops.
• Ice packs might help. Surgery rarely.
Wow, thank you Dr Interwebz.

The Heavenly Designers had a dark sense of humor.

Milady finally gave me a big dose of magnesium-something yesterday, and I'm all well today, so she can take credit. This is the secret of doctors and teachers, too (eg get kids when learning is all they do, hang around them, take credit for their learning).

(Credit where due: the Dentist who took out my kids' wisdom teeth, checking later, says, "All healed up. Isn't that great? We have no idea why that works!")

Was that random enough? Just gushing because I'm not in pain. Feel like I got ten years back. Gotta enjoy it before the Next Thing happens...

I went to a very liberal Catholic HS. Mass there was always a joke. The priests tried to "relate" to us and make it "relevant".

Yeah, I agree with that. My son is LCMS, and they do three services per Sunday. Two services are traditional. The middle one is contemporary, with a praise band that leads the singing. That's usually where the younger people go, or those with young families. I know so many churches that are closing their doors or having to combine with other churches because the old folks are dying off and there is no one in the younger generation coming up behind them to stand in the gap.

207 Mormonism does contain irrational beliefs, though. Not just arbitrary but irrational. For instance, all humans can become gods, and God was once human according to Mormonism. That means that one of us could have been Jesus' savior rather than the other way round. Surely that is unacceptable to any serious Christian.

Yep, Watermelon Frankie has passed the word on down. One parish close to mine made a point of volunteering a water cooler and paper cups so no one would use that awful bottled water at block parties. Because 50% of bottled water comes from depressed countries where people are dying. Doesn't mention what they are dying from, like, you know, dehydration or contaminated water. So my husband and I checked out all the bottled water available at few nearby stores. The big cases (such as you would get for a block party) were all bottled in those poor, dying nations of Canada and Michigan.

But the environment is high on the list of approved themes. I'm sure we'll get around to illegal immigrants soon enough.

Cruz, after denouncing the deal, said, Sadly, Congress has given away its constitutional authority to ratify it as a treaty, or reject it as a treaty. And so its going to take 2/3ds of the Senate and 2/3ds of the House to defeat it. Which means Obama needs to hold on to 34 Democratic Senators to push through this terrible deal.

Get over it, father. Obvious life is full of suffering but why bash a cheerful song? Sheesh. The old priest always limited his sermons to trying to be better people and how special children were.

Did you expect this spineless weasel to have an opinion about this kind of sedition?
There was an American History teacher at my son's high school that used Howard Zinn's book in his class. By the end of the year, most of the students thought he was "full of shit" (and the history teacher was an Annapolis Naval Academy grad). The head of the history dept at the high school is my neighbor (about 3 doors down). He can control this, and always gives wishy-washy answers about why he used Zinn's book.

Needless to say, a lot of parents were pretty angry about it. The school administration hates the parents, too.

Did you tell her that as a Jew you find her comments extremely offensive? That she was trying to minimize the holocaust and in doing so, she sounded like the real nazi?

234 Harry Reid is irrational and I don't know but I expect he's a MINO-Mormon in name only. His real religion is leftism and he's a mean man.

241 My mom is Catholic and I attend a Reformed Protestant (Calvinist) church; we'll snark at each other over doctrine, but we'll attend each other's church during visits. I did have a mini stroke when one of the speakers at her church announced a lecture series on "social justice," and I had to explain to her what that meant. Of course, every confirmation service they have is 95 percent Hispanic, so they have to spout the pro-illegal immigration line if they want to have a congregation in 30 years.

The Left will devour itself. How do they decide between female empowerment and anti-violence? It must be a constant struggle to determine which faction has the biggest bug up its ass at a particular juncture.

When did little childhood pleasures become so FROUGHT? When I was a wee lassie I had Peanuts lunchboxes and a Rat Patrol lunchbox. Nobody gave a damn what I brought and what container I brought it in. Maybe I was gender-fluid and therefore safe?

Also, metal lunchboxes incite children to violence.

What a load. UNC is offering the class, right? Published in the university course catalog, right? Class held on campus, right? In a university classroom, right? Taking tuition and fees from the students for the class, right?
Hmmm, I'd say that walking, quacking thing is a university-endorsed and approved duck.

247 Interesting article linked on Drudge. Gypsies close down major highway using stacks of burning tires defended by chainsaws. French police admit they are powerless. Gypsies want one of theirs released from jail to attend his fathers funeral. Who runs Bartertown?

256 252 The American NGOs. When I was working in EE and Russia I ran into a young , eager, American lawyer working for a non profit. His mission was to get fair and legal trials for the "gypsies". Rightly or wrongly, bias against gypsies is deep.
