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.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Episcopal Church Bishop: Denying Climate Change 'Sinful'
"Jesus insists…"
.

 According to the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church Katherine Jefferts Schori, denying climate change is a sin.

She says Jesus "insists" that Earth's citizens reduce their carbon footprint and proselytize others to do the same.

Schori kicked off a 30-day challenge in Los Angeles on Tuesday that the church labeled "The Climate Change Crisis." As keynote speaker, the former-marine-biologist-turned priest, used the event to preach environmental stewardship.

"We have failed to love what God has given us," she stated in her opening address. "We are unwittingly redesigning the Earth on timescales that are infinitesimal compared to previous geologic and evolutionary rates."

Noting that there are "a few very loud voices" who deny climate change, Jefferts Schori opted to brush them aside because they are motivated by "greed, self-centered political interests, [and] willful blindness."

She then labeled those actions a sin:

    The Judeo-Christian tradition has always called those motivations sinful. It’s decidedly wrong to use resources that have been given into our collective care in ways that diminish the ability of others to share in abundant life. [A "sin of omission," she claimed]

    We are making war on the integrity of this planet… the violence of war unleashed by environmental chaos and greed. We were planted in this garden to care for it, literally to have dominion over its creatures. Dominion means caring for our island home.

    We are meant to love God and what God has created and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Jesus insists that those who will enjoy abundant life are those who care for all neighbors, especially the 'least of these' -- the hungry and thirsty, the imprisoned and sick -- and that must include all the species God has nurtured on this planet.

Jefferts Schori blamed "human beings with the most resource intensive lifestyle" as causing the starvation, displacement, and impoverishment of whom she calls "climate refugees" -- human or animal.

The bishop said calling this event a "crisis" was by design because humans are now faced with a "life or death" decision: "Change our destructive and overly consumptive ways, or we can ignore the consequences of our actions or slowly steam like the proverbial frogs in a soup pot."

However, she warned that there is not much time left to choose.

The entire keynote speech and event can be viewed here.
