September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Controversial X-Men Gold Artist Says His Career Is Now Over

Over the weekend, the comic book community was sent into a tizzy when news broke that one of Marvel’s X-Men series had unknowingly gone to press with some controversial art. X-Men Gold #1 appeared normal by all accounts, but the outward appearance of the comic was soon scrutinized by aghast fans. After reading the comic, careful fans discovered the issue held inflammatory religious and political artwork hidden in its background. Now, the artist behind the ordeal has broken his social media hiatus to address the controversy, and Ardian Syaf admits his career is now over.

Over on Facebook, the artist posted a short message where he tried to clarify what his hidden messages actually meant. Syaf said he added the artwork as a gesture of “justice” and “love,” but the specific Qur’an passages noted in the comic are more exclusionary in context.

You can read Syaf’s full message below:

“Hello, Worlds…

My career is over now. It’s the consequence what I did, and I take it. Please no more mockery, debat, no more hate. I hope all in peace.

In this last chance, I want to tell you the true meaning of the numbers, 212 and QS 5:51.

It is number of JUSTICE. It is number of LOVE. My love to Holy Qur’an...my love to the last prophet, the Messenger...my love to ALLAH, The One God.

My apologize for all the noise. Good bye, May God bless you all. I love all of you.”

If you are not familiar with the controversy, then you have a bit to catch up on. In X-Men Gold #1, a set of background images were noted by fans for their subtle dig at religions such as Judaism. The comic’s art even references several political protests in Indonesia about a Christian governor who is being accused of blaspheming the Qur’an.

In a previous message, Syaf admitted the art did have an intentional meaning behind it. “I told all Marvel the truth [sic] meaning of the number,” he said, “let’s see how Marvel will act.

After the artwork was brought to light, Marvel was quick to distance itself from Syaf and his content. The company released a statement to ComicBook which condemned the work, promising that any controversial artwork would be taken out in further issues. You can read the publisher’s full statement below:

“The mentioned artwork in X-Men Gold #1 was inserted without knowledge behind its reported meanings. These implied references do not reflect the views of the writer, editors or anyone else at Marvel and are in direct opposition of the inclusiveness of Marvel Comics and what the X-Men have stood for since their creation. This artwork will be removed from subsequent printings, digital versions, and trade paperbacks and disciplinary action is being taken.”

What is being talked about in the above article is left out of the article!

The Quranic verse inserted into the comic is Q 5:51

O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.

Not much love there as he says in his response.  Here is the image i saved as Disney says they are deleting it from all reprints and digital files. Im surprised Disney even admitted this.
