It’s not about baskets filled with candy, fuzzy cute bunnies or colored eggs…It’s about the resurrection of Jesus.

    Happy Easter to all of you and all of us at the Blogmocracy! We normally schedule all the threads in advance so we don’t overlap each other, but I didn’t see any pertaining to the holiest day for Christians, so I had to rectify the situation…

    ‘this little light of mine’ needs some attention.
    Good day to reflect.
    Hope everyone can spend time with loved ones today.

    Happy Easter

    Jesus has been misused & misquoted over the centuries, particularly by Liberals. They try to frame him as a Che Guevera character.
    Right behind Jeasus in misuse imo is Thomas Jefferson.

    so if Stan wanted to create a religion that denies that Jesus
    payed
    the price for sin in full on the cross what would he come up with?

    According to Islam, Jesus never died on the cross, nor ever wanted to die on the cross, nor ever was born to die on the cross. Muslims believe that Jesus was sentenced to death, and people thought that he got executed on the cross. The Holy Quran rejects this idea, and claims that it is a false one. Jesus never died on the cross, nor he ever died for anyone’s sins.

    well Islam fits the bill perfectly

    Happy Easter, y’all!

    Last night we had an Easter Vigil service. We read Exodus 14-15, the delivery of the Jews from the Egyptians across the Red Sea and the chapter of Ezekiel about the “dry bones,” and then the Resurrection according to Matthew.

    The dearest part of the Gospel in all four versions is that Mary Magdalene was the FIRST who saw the Risen Lord. She also watched with Mary as He died.

    O/T, and this is thread-worthy…

    Ex-NY Mayor Koch: Obama Anti-Israel ‘In Order to Please Muslims’
    Koch Calls Obama Anti-Israel

    U.S. President Barack Obama is anti-Israel and “is willing to throw Israel under the bus in order to please Muslim nations,” former New York City Mayor Ed Koch charged.

    Koch, a Jewish Democrat, has been gradually “falling out of love” with President Obama, a term he used in a commentary he published last August. The recent snub by the president of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, highlighted by a meeting without a press conference or even an official photograph, broke the proverbial camel’s back for Koch.

    After having opposed President Obama’s health care reform plan and expressing disappointment over his failure to convince Russia and China to back harsh sanctions against Iran, the former mayor recently wrote, “President Obama’s abysmal attitude toward the State of Israel and his humiliating treatment of Prime Minister Netanyahu is shocking.”

    He then went one step further with unprecedented public criticism of President Obama by a leading Democrat, telling Fox News that the country’s leader is more interested in pacifying Muslim nations than helping Israel.

    “What they did is they wanted to make Israel into a pariah,” he said. “It’s outrageous in my judgment,” Koch commented.

    “I have been a supporter of President Obama and went to Florida for him, urged Jews all over the country to vote for him, saying that he would be just as good as John McCain on the security of Israel. I don’t think it’s true anymore.”

    He also publicly questioned New York Senator Chuck Schumer, a Jew, for not protesting President Obama’s treatment of Israel. “It’s their silence,” Koch told the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin. “I can’t figure out where they are.”

    The senator reportedly told Koch he will openly side with Israel if President Obama does not back off.

    OT

    The reason B. Obama will not meet with leaders from England, France, Canada, Israel, Germany, Austraila, ect., is that he knows they will find out is an empty suit, a know nothing, together with that it would become clear how full bore unAmerican and pure commie he is.

    So, he is rude and mean to they too as to we the people.

    Hide the decline.

    Unlike Bogey and Cagney, Robinson was never able to break out of that 30′s gangster typecast. His voice had that ring and to me, he was a mob boss dressed in Egytian clothing; all he needed was the cigar.

    I will say this: I was introduced to Edward G. Robinson through The Ten Commandments, and I didn’t see any of the gangster films he’s known for until not too long ago. To me, his voice in Little Caesar doesn’t quite sound the same as in The Ten Commandments. I don’t know if he ever broke out of the gangster typecast, but as far as I’m concerned, I don’t see him as just a gangster.

    Well, sometimes it’s all about perception. A lot of people who never say Brando’s ealier films will always think of him as Vito Corleone. Me? Robinson will forever be “Little Ceaser”.

    As for Bogart and Cagney; even during their heyday, they played such a wide range of characters that their “gangster roles” were merely a part of their careers

    Not sure about that. Most of Robinson’s roles in the 30′s and 40′s were as gangsters or criminals, which was, in one respect, a shame because he also gave good performances as non-gangsters, like in Five Star Final (1931) and The Stranger (1946). From the 50′s onward, though, it looks like he had a more rounded slate of acting roles.
