In Africa, it's a compliment...

(Tim) The big news is that Brett Favre's back in Green Bay. He arrived last night, accompanied by his...

Favre, and his wide, Deanna, along with agent James "Bus" Cook arrived in Green Bay shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday on a private plane from his native Mississippi.

It seems that he's tainted his class-noted career, exit, and reputation. Favre had the unquestionable respect of friend and foe for so long, but not sure that that will continue to be the case....

"In Africa, it's a compliment..."

Well, it sure isn't *here*!

:O

Help me here, Tim.

I don't get what you're saying. What's the deal about Africa and the compliment?

I don't get how his changing his mind taints anything.

David,

Farve, and his WIDE, ...

I don't get how his changing his mind taints anything.

Cheese Head.

:)

Gotcha, Archie.

Took me a while. It is funny now that I get it.

Thanks, DW

A broad statement if I ever heard one.

"She is like the ships of the merchant;

she brings her food from afar." (Proverbs 31:14)

A good ship is broad in the beam.

"...she brings her food from afar."

Hope it's not too burnt!

At best, his Packers are going to lose to the Patriots in the Super Bowl... he should stay retired.

And please don't bring up what happened in the previous Super Bowl. My heart is still tender.

That never happened.

Tim, I'm glad that most people don't agree with your view... In fact, very few people these days hold the same views that you have. It's scary to see the fruits of your church. If being a "Christian" meant being like you, I'd rather rot in...

[NOTE FROM TIM: You all get the idea. The IP address is a private SBC customer in Fishers, Indiana. It's about an hour and a half from here.]

Boy do I have this overwhelming urge to come up with a witty comment to post under this name. Unfortunately I can't think of anything, so I'll just forget the whole thing.

> [Normal:] Tim, I'm glad that most people don't agree with your view... In fact, very few people these days hold the same views that you have.

To side with the majority today is certainly no virtue.

Apparently drifting with the tide of the masses makes one "Normal"...?

> If being a "Christian" meant being like you...

Maybe people should take a vote and decide what being a "Christian" is. Never mind, they've thought of that already.

"...she brings her food from afar."

Hopefully not "take out"!

Oh? I don't know anything about African customs, but it is not considered a plus here that I'm aware of for a woman to be shaped like a man.

God designed Adam broad in the shoulders for working the fields, Eve broad in the hips for bearing children. He not only said it all was very good, but He also made men to be attracted to the way he made women. There's the ideal of the "hourglass figure," and all that. My wife regularly goes to "Curves," but not with the intention of getting rid of them. The company's name implies the same thing. Female curves are good. After 50+ years of observation, I find this to be fairly taken for granted, and even emphasized. Remember bustles and farthingales?

Tim, how many restraining orders have you had against you? Because that's normal for a pastor.

[Tim responds: Since you ask: One, thirteen years ago, for twice confronting a woman who made money off killing babies. Once at the Farmer's Market and once downtown, I ran into her as I was walking with family members. Both times I said to her, "(Mrs. Doe), killing babies is a terribly wicked thing." She couldn't stand it and filed a civil complaint against me.

One of those times, I had my three year old son on my shoulders and my daughters and wife at my sides. The other time, I had my teenage daughter, Heather, with me.

I believe every pastor, elder, and father in our nation should make a practice of doing the same, and I have no regrets. Fact is, I'm chagrined I've never been arrested for an act of civil disobedience opposing abortion as my hero, John Piper, was at about the same time.

So the one year restraining order was something I suggested to avoid further groundless, harrassing civil action on her part. I volunteered not to speak to her personally for a period of one year as long as she made no effort to keep me from continuing to picket the abortuary where she worked.

At the time, it seemed to me too much of a nuisance to go to court and fight for the protection of our First Amendment rights.]

> "(Mrs. Doe), killing babies is a terribly wicked thing."

Tim, you're perfectly normal for plainly speaking the truth, and the world is very badly warped for forcefully denying it, (not to mention denying your right to free speech).

> She couldn't stand it and filed a civil complaint against me.

If the world were normal, she'd be the one in trouble, and not just with a restraining order. How do they sleep at night?

> One of those times, I had my three year old son on my shoulders and my daughters and wife at my sides. The other time, I had my teenage daughter, Heather, with me.

Sounds real threatening.

> ...the one year restraining order was something I suggested

Now, that sounds abnormal -- I don't think many people would suggest such a thing.

> ... to avoid further groundless, harrassing civil action on her part.

I can imagine. And she'd have no end of donations from normal people to help with legal fees.

> ...it seemed to me too much of a nuisance to go to court and fight for the protection of our First Amendment rights.

That would have been costly. Some subjects we don't have the right to speak freely about, it seems. "Zero tolerance for intolerance!"

> One, thirteen years ago, for twice confronting a woman who made money off killing babies.

Something good to put on your resume.

The utter and complete fragility of those defending and helping a woman to exercise her "right" to rip the growing life from her body - it simply astounds me. This woman murders for a living and she needs the power of the state to protect her from someone speaking a dozen words to her?

Bravo, Tim! If we're not all in jail by the end of the coming Obama reign, it will probably be because we aren't speaking boldly enough - and that will be all it takes, just "speaking truth to power".

One really last thought to the readers of this blog: if you are ever asked to drink the Kool-aid, don't do it!

Normal,

Please change your moniker to something more appropriate.

I like Kool-aid.
