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.”

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."

(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;

Robot 'priest' can beam light from its hands and give automated blessings to worshippers

The robot wishes users a "warm welcome" before asking them if they want to be blessed by a male or female voice

A robot 'priest' that beams lights from its hands and can give automated blessings to the faithful has been launched in the town that gave fame to Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation.

Five hundred years after Luther published the Ninety-five Theses in Wittenberg, kicking off the Reformation, an evangelical church launched a unique automated blessing robot for the special celebrations in the historic town located in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt.

The robot on show in the old town of Wittenberg is called "BlessU-2" and was developed by the Evangelical Church in Hesse and Nassau.

It consists of a metal box with a touch screen, two arms on the side, a head with eyes and a digital mouth at the top.

After the robot wishes users a "warm welcome", it asks them if they want to be blessed by a male or female voice.

It then asks the believer "what blessing do you want", which results in the robot making a mechanical sound as it raises its arms to the heavens and starts to smile.

Lights then start to flash in the robot's arms as it says "God bless and protect you" and recites a biblical verse.

After the blessing, the user has the possibility to print the dictum.

Church spokesman Sebastian von Gehren said: "It is an experiment that is supposed to inspire discussion."

Von Gehren explained that they consciously decided against a typical human appearance.

He said that the reactions vary wildly. "One half thinks it's great" while "the other cannot imagine a blessing from a machine."

Remarkably, von Gehren said that people who have little in common with the church are particularly attracted to the robot, with many people "now coming every morning and evening."

Brunhilde Hoeltz-Mettang, a visitor to the church celebrations in Wittenberg, said the robot was "interesting and courageous" even though it lacked the human touch.

Yet 500 years after Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to a church door in Wittenberg, the robot priest will not replace humans any time soon.

Von Gehren said: "The machine should not replace the blessing of a pastor. In the future there will not be a blessing robot in every church."
