The View and Joy Behar
Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:43am

thought she was having fun intending to demean Vice President Pence and his comments about prayer, but instead revealed her ignorance and insulting all Christians. As is often the case the Bible speaks directly to this kind of 'reproach'. (Ironic that I was doing a word study on 'revile', not related to Joy's outburst.)

"But these men revile the things which they do not understand, and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed." Jude 1:10 New American Standard

and another version:

"Whatever these people don't understand, they insult. Like animals, which are creatures of instinct, they use whatever they know to destroy themselves." Jude 1:10 God's Word Translation

        • Where do you see "agreement"? It's all about Hammer.Mondo Fuego™ , Thu Feb 15 10:08am
          All Hammer responses to any post quickly threadjack and make the topic about him. And, then you jump in, defend him, trash his opponent, and make it all about you. Strange behavior. Co-dependency?

                    like the playground bully? You randomly decide who has a valid argument and who does not. You also make snitty remarks that are rude, arrogant and flagrantly childish. Before you ask why I might... more

                    instead of being an ass? I did NOT attack whatsoever. I pointed out the commonalities in the posts and how they were relevant. If that's what you consider "attacking" -- you are a snowflake that's... more
