“It Is The Truth That Is At Stake”

And if truth is really MIA

Just maybe that is because the church no longer speaks a single truth.

The whole Kavanaugh hearing

Was nothing more than "she said he said" all tied up in a political battle. In short there was no clear cut truth to be had! Given the number of times Kavanaugh has been thoroughly vetted, I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. After all, there is a statement in the Bible about being judged as you have judged. I also believe Christianity is about justice and mercy for everybody. I do not subscribe to the black and white thinking that everybody is either a victim or an oppressor. I also do not believe that sexual misconduct--especially at age 17--is The Unforgivable Sin. My own life experiences tell me that humanity is very broken--we are not the people that God created us to be.

"Oh what tangled webs we weave when first we practice to deceive..." You forgot the Ford mis-fires, Rev.!

Did you miss Dr. Ford's testimony? She could "not remember" the date it happened, not even the year, where it happened, how she got there or how she got home. She could not remember the last name of one of her four witnesses. Yes, victims can forget things, but that many things? But, her four witnesses also forgot things - everything - as not one could remember the party or seeing Kavenaugh in a party venue with Ford. Wow! That is really some mental block when even the witnesses can't remember anything! Of course, there was, in truth, nothing to remember. Whatever is the breakdown in Ford, it is pitiful, but for people who are not dealing with personal pain and confusion, it is shameful for her to be so used. For liberals to use her to attack Kavenaugh is typical of the duplicity of people who had no righteous indignation over Clinton's accusers, but have now found a moral high ground over a fib with not one supporting fact or witness.
I want to thank you. My side will do much better in the off-year election than we could have without you. And, you further prove the correctness to split the UMC and to take my pledge and person out of the UMC . And, for a good giggle. Liberals and their shenanigans are amusing.

Truth at Stake by Rev Guyton

Rev Guyton, so you accuse Judge Kavanaugh of not telling the truth about his drinking and bragging about his high school sexual exploits. You said he lied and apparently this was so clear to you that you went to far as saying if you were a Roman Catholic Priest you would deny him communion. You are wrong and you should be more careful of your facts. Kavanaugh did indeed admit he drank too much at times. He said so in his testimony that he liked beer in school and sometimes had more than he should. That's clearly admitting he drank too much at times. And he never bragged about any sexual conquests. This is your assumption of those who reported that the term "Renate Alumni" in his high school yearbook means the young claim they had sex with he. He denies this is what it meant and 4 of the other boys in the picture with this caption confirm that is had nothing to do with sex, but rather was affection for a good friend. So did you lie or just make mistakes and irresponsible assumptions? If you would deny Holy Communion to Kavanaugh, an innocent man, what should be your punishment as a clergyman? Reverend, I suggest you start examining that plank in your own eye.
