Is A Digital Bible Less Holy?
U.S. Officials Increasingly
Sworn In On Tablets

Fox News Latino, by Hillary Vaughn

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/14/2014 3:54:01 PM

It was called the wave of the future – the recently tapped U.S. ambassador to Switzerland was sworn in last month with her hand not on a paper Bible but on top of a Kindle. Techies called it revolutionary and applauded Suzi Levine for making history. But she wasn’t the only one who went high-tech when she took the oath of office. A county executive from Long Island, N.Y., used the Bible app on an iPad to be sworn in last year and a few months ago a group of firefighters from New Jersey huddled around a Kindle Bible when they took their oath. But the movement has drawn concern from some in the religious community who are reluctant

Comments:
This sounds totally disrespectful to me. My Bible is blessed and therefore not just some item to throw around.

A tablet could be more likely to burst into flames or explode when the liars swear in on it. Also, I would think a practicing Christian would want to use a physical book while a pretender would not.

I guess so if you think paper / cardboard / leather / ink is what it takes to make a Bible.

Actually ... it´s the Word of God ... not the paper/cardboard/leather/ink of God.

On a side note: the Bible is clear on swearing, it says quite plainly let your yes be yes and your no be no, do not swear on anything that is of heaven and or earth.

Just saying what the Word of God has to say about this.

Is everyone else (pretty much) as weary as I am of the constant barrage against every single Christian tradition, ritual consistently changed, watered down or demeaned? How HARD is it to just use the actual real paper Holy Bible? This is purposeful to show disrespect in many cases, I believe.

Instead of the bible, they likely have the Qur´an, Mein Kampf, Das Kapital, Mao´s Little Red Book, Obama´s Little Blue Book, and the Satanic Bible loaded on that Kindle.

Not that it matters. For 99% of the 0bama appointees, their oaths are worth less than the electrons expended to load those Kindles and way less than the ink and paper used to print the books..

Suit thyself. Dear wife is losing her sight but we have Bibles in several translations on tablets and smartphones. Among other things, she can make the oprint as large as she needs to see. And we can make annotations quite readily. And they are Always available. Works for us. Some commentaries and dictionaries are also available.

I´m sure there´s an edict that the tablet has to be faced away from cameras or cell phones capable of snapping pictures so no one can see that it´s a Quran.

Ukraine Reports Russian
Invasion on a New Front
New York Times, by Andrew E. Kramer *    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/28/2014 2:40:26 AM     Post Reply
Donetsk, Ukraine - Determined to preserve the pro-Russian revolt in eastern Ukraine, Russia reinforced what Western and Ukrainian officials described as a stealth invasion on Wednesday, sending armored troops across the border as it expanded the conflict to a new section of Ukrainian territory. (Snip) Russia, which has denied it is helping the insurgents, did not acknowledge the military movements. But the Russians have signaled that they would not countenance a defeat of an insurgency in the heavily Russian eastern part of Ukraine, which would amount to a significant domestic political setback for President Vladimir V. Putin of

Immigration judges´ union

Washington - The federal immigration court system should be separated from the Justice Department and operated independently of federal law enforcement, the top two leaders of the immigration judges´ union said Wednesday. Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges, said immigration judges act as arbiters in deportation cases being argued by Homeland Security Department lawyers but judges also are treated as attorneys for the government. As employees of DOJ´s Executive Office for Immigration Review, Marks said, the judges´ dual roles can potentially blur the lines for judges

Brownsville, TX - A federal judge in Texas denied Wednesday a conservative activist´s request for an emergency stay to stop the government from transporting immigrants who entered the country illegally in South Texas to other states or releasing them on their own recognizance. In a complaint filed in July, Orly Taitz argued that by sending immigrant children and families to various states while South Texas was overwhelmed by an immigration surge, the U.S. government created a public health risk. She called for a two-month quarantine and medical screening for all immigrants detained after entering the country.

Canberra - The hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 will focus on the southern part of the existing search zone after a new clue to the plane´s possible location emerged, Australia said on Thursday. Fresh information suggested the jet "may have turned south" earlier than thought, Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said. The detail came to light following "further refinement" of satellite data and as investigators attempted to map the plane´s position during a failed attempt to contact it earlier in its flight path.

Tuesday, Sept. 2, post Labor Day, David Muir becomes ABC-TV’s “World News” anchor.

Also he’s gorgeous. Great hair. Perfect sideburns. Why replace triple-A Diane Sawyer? Because he’s 40, and she isn’t. TV brass would appreciate Rembrandt more today if he were 23 and schmearing a canvas in Soho. David “watched news at home at 12, wrote about it at 13 and, even when they drove me to school, excused myself to watch Peter Jennings.

FBI investigates alleged Russian
cyber attack on Wall Street
Telegraph [UK], by Philip Sherwell    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/28/2014 1:51:53 AM     Post Reply
New York - The FBI is investigating whether Russian hackers staged a cyber-attack on major Wall Street businesses this month in retaliation for US sanctions imposed over Ukraine, Bloomberg News reported last night. The Russian hackers allegedly stole large amounts of sensitive data from JP Morgan Chase and at least one other bank, according to sources familiar with the investigation. The FBI is also reportedly looking into possible links to recent hacking of large European financial institutions. The sophistication of the attacks appeared to be beyond the capability of normal criminal hackers, according to Bloomberg.

Republican 2016 hopefuls reverse
course to appeal to conservative base

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/27/2014 8:09:47 PM     Post Reply
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s lawsuit Wednesday challenging the federal Common Core education curriculum makes him the latest GOP presidential hopeful to use the dog days of August to recalibrate himself toward the conservative voters who will decide the 2016 Republican presidential nominee. Mr. Jindal, who had embraced the Common Core in 2010, this week said he now sees it as another example of an overbearing federal government. His about-face follows that of another potential 2016 candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who has reversed course on his signature immigration bill, and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky,

Ad War Heating up in
Massachusetts Governor´s Race

Boston - The sharp elbows are coming out in the Massachusetts governor’s race. On Wednesday, a super PAC supporting Republican candidate Charlie Baker unveiled a television ad targeting Democrat Martha Coakley. The 30-second spot faults Coakley for underestimating the state’s gas tax during a television appearance while supporting last year’s decision to hike the tax by 3 cents to 24 cents a gallon, the first increase since 1991. Coakley also opposes a ballot question which would repeal a law automatically linking future hikes in the tax to inflation. The Commonwealth Future Political Action Committee is funded largely by the

´Cops´ Crew Member Killed by Officers

A staffer on the long-running television crime show Cops was shot and killed Tuesday night by gunfire from local police, while videotaping an armed robbery in progress in Omaha, Nebraska, that also left the suspect dead. According to the Omaha Police Department, the incident took place at a Wendy´s restaurant around 9:20 p.m. CT, in the vicinity of 42nd Street and Dodge. Initial reports said the TV crew member — now identified by Langley Productions (which produces Cops) as 38-year-old audio technician Bryce Dion — had been critically injured. The news of his death broke Wednesday morning, as first reported by the

IRS back-up baloney

Some 15 months after Americans learned about the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups, we still have no clue how such an abuse was allowed to happen. And every day, the story only gets murkier. This week, for instance, a government watchdog group, Judicial Watch, said administration officials admitted that all the “missing” e-mails belonging to Lois Lerner (the woman at the heart of the scandal) had been backed up after all — as part of a practice to back up all the government’s e-mails. No government official had said anything like that before. As House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., describes it, these reports are

At Michael Brown funeral, Al Sharpton´s
double-edged eulogy evokes anger
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/25/2014 10:00:04 PM     Post Reply
The shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., has been so heavily politicized that it would have been unreasonable to expect Brown´s funeral to be free of politics — especially when it featured a eulogy by the Rev. Al Sharpton. And indeed, the Brown service, held Monday at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis, was intensely political. But not in the way some observers expected. It´s probably safe to say most white viewers thought Sharpton would deliver a rabble-rousing condemnation of the police, the government, and the American system, concluding that they all combined to end a promising 18-year-old

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants.

The Minnesota man who died alongside fellow ISIS fighters in Syria was "not a terrorist," his cousin claims. Douglas McAuthur McCain died over the weekend in radical-on-radical clashes in Syria. He lived in California before he traveled to Syria earlier this year to join other Islamic State terrorists. But his heartbroken cousin only remembers a humble, kind man — not a militant.

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers. "This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication capability for light vehicles,"

During a radio interview yesterday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Romney responded to more questions about his possible candidacy by saying, “I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time.“ “And again, we said look, I had the chance of running.
