Dogma: You are to believe this without question.
My housemate attended Empowerment Temple, and idolized its pastor, Jamal Harrison Bryant. He told me this exchange he heard in the reception line after a service.
Jamal Harrison Bryant told this man, “God told me to tell you [thus-and-so].” The man said, “I don’t believe that.” Bryant answered, “If you don’t believe that, then you don’t believe God.”
Hearing this, I was incensed. This epitomized what we call “disembodied speech.”

Can the Left concede any differences between men and women?

Working on the post “Other Jesus sayings,” which will probably appear in December, I must soon deal with Jesus saying, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country,” etc. (Mt. 13:57, Mk. 6:4, Lk. 4:24).

In doing research for a different post, I just now got a big surprise, from this Wikipedia article:
Many years ago, I recognized that individuals I regard as false prophets are unusually prone to die of cancer. I could provide a long list, but just now there’s no need. I developed a theory of an “irritable personality,” and supposed such a personality might rise from the same genetic bases as a tendency toward cancer.
From this article, it appears that I was right. Although it doesn’t give any detailed description of what might constitute a cancer-prone personality, it sets forth that, at least in some persons, the two are definitely linked.

Final note: Not all trolls are false prophets, but all false prophets are trolls.

Closing arguments in Julius Henson election fraud trial
I have had direct contact with trials involving Edward Smith, Jr. in the past, such that his antics here come to me as no surprise.
The question I ask is whether it’s worth it to tell the truth, and what happens when we don’t.

Concerning Baltimore City’s recent ordinance about panhandling, Dan Rodricks complained that the ordinance didn’t address “the underlying issues;” but then, he didn’t, either. So I thought I would, here. These posts pertain:
(1) I stay at the best shelter on the East Coast;
(2) Obstacles to my prosperity;
(3) Baby steps.
