Well...you have the "out" if you're Catholic . If you're Protestant-- you need to ask your pastor how your sect views this practice.
Otherwise you'll just have to cram it down and hope for the best.
The church consists of "the body" of those who believe in Christ. They can only burn down the building. And no, they don't get a "turn the cheek" pass. Allowing that to go unchecked would be a spiritual disservice to them. It is a sin to destroy another's property. And admonish the sinner is a tenant of most Christian churches. "Admonishment" in this case would be having them charged with arson and be subject to the laws of the state. (Render unto Caesar)
Are you saying you are feeling forced to sign up and pay for a mediation program and you don't want to do it?
If so, you've an automatic "out" if you're Catholic. Meditation (as practiced by the New-age types) technically falls under the first commandment of the "Thou shalt nots". I am not sure if Protestant sects view it the same way but if they do, there's your excuse. An employer can't force you to do anything which violates your religion.
Be aware though, that if you opt out using this excuse, the boss may find another reason to get rid of you. Generally speaking these "meddle in your psyche" types don't like to be thwarted.
I'm not sure how this type of stuff would relate to your job performance unless your company has a hostile working environment. Be that as it may, these things are usually run by guru types who are, more often than not, manipulators and prone to keep selling"more" self-improvement until the client is bankrupt.
I hate to say this because it sounds terrible -- but the BLM rioters have created an atmosphere where there is no longer a belief that black "strangers" are not violent . Quite truthfully, if I were pregnant and confronted by two screaming banshees demanding an apology for something I didn't feel I did -- I would fear for my life or that of my unborn child.
You simply don't know these days if random black "strangers" are good God fearing people or one of the BLM irrational lunatics that have been on our tv screens for weeks.
I am going to guess that gun is either a new purchase or one that has never accompanied the couple to anywhere other than a target range .
It is available in their possession at this moment in time because BLM has been attacking white people randomly. The couple have obviously decided that public spaces are no longer "safe" for white people. Being accosted by this pair of "molehill into mountain" harridans only proved their analysis of the state of public safety was correct.
It is clear from the video that the pregnant lady was backing away to leave and the other two ladies kept following her. If I were on the jury, l would acquit the pregnant woman and her husband.
Well, don't you think it's time that those on the right demand to know what he meant by "sadly enough"? Time to put the news station in the hot seat and give them loaded questions.
At what point will the federal government step in and stop DeBlasio? This man is clearly insane and needs to be removed from office. He should already be under indictment for the criminally insane act of purposefully murdering the elderly people in nursing homes by forcing Covid-19 patients into their space.
If you listen to a lot of alternative news-- the claim is that Trump is allowing this to happen so that people on the fence can see what the Democrats are really like.
I'm sorry -- but enough is enough. I don't even live in New York but feel sorry for whatever Republicans, Independents, or Kennedy era Democrats that are stuck there due to jobs or family connections.
Indict DeBlasio for the nursing home murders and give some relief to those poor people stuck with him.
Typical liberal thinking -- instead of aspiring to give city dwellers an opportunity to improve their lives through education and thus attain the lifestyle they envy -- tear down the lifestyle of those they envy and create more giant slums.
Well, if that's the case they can pay me reparations because my ancestors were winged hussars and fought the battle of Vienna to keep Europe from being further enslaved by people of color.
Considering that the word slave derives from "Slavic", I don't think they can contest the fact that they owe white people for the same reason they think white people owe them.
We can take this history to court if need be -- we have a greater claim to reparations than they do as the number of enslaved people was much larger and the conditions of the slaves much worse.
Let them. The people will elect Trump anyway.
And we have long memories. Anyone who attempts to get in the way of our president's reelection will never be voted into office again. We already want to rid ourselves of RINOS and Never Trumpers. What's a few Bushes added to the no more votes bin?
If the couple were threatened with death and the burning of their house -- there's no way the prosecutor has a case. The evidence of a severely bent gate at the entrance to a private community proves the "protestors" were not peaceful, but rather destructive.
For this black prosecutor to bring charges is blatant anti-white discrimination and harrassment. I wonder if their attorney can do anything legally to have the judicial system clamp down on this revenge seeking activist prosecutor.
How idiotic! .This can't be justified under their narrative unless they do some heavy creative thinking! What can a statue of an elk do in terms of "offensivenesa" in order to be burned at the stake by the witch hunters?
Yes, by burning this innocent depiction of an elk, they've become as cognitively primative as any medieval witch hunter.
These academics invent these terms and are no longer required to do the necessary work to check if the "condition" actually exists . The assume it's given and write their papers based on unproven premises.
Well Durham should shake his ass and get the arrests and executions done before the election.
I think Trump will win but if it sets conservatives minds at ease they.should move to conclude this ASAP.
That is the most incredibly stupid decision. So if there is a criminal escapee "at large" the public won't know to avoid him/her because they won't know what he/she looks like.
What BLM wants is the freedom to commit all the crimes they want without being arrested and punished. Leftists are insane.
No...actually this is her attempt at manipulation. She thinks by sobbing crocodile tears on social media the left will come to her aid and force the company to give her the job back. Notice that in both videos she specifically mentions the company by name. She's actually playing the game cleverly (or so she thinks).
What she doesn't realize is that the video made her look like a lunatic. The one thing management doesn't want to deal with is instability. I doubt they will rehire her no matter how many leftists contact them.
Actually, I see this as a hopeful sign. The cancel culture has to realize it works both ways.
Why would this be a police bulletin? If an uprising of 30,000 radicals specifically to kill white people -- wouldn't that become a military issue? Wouldn't Trump be calling up the national guard in every state to be in readiness and dispatching regular militia to hot spots?
I can't think of a single city police dept that could handle 30,000 lunatics bent on murder. If this has any truth at all in it -- the military has to be moving in even if they are doing it covertly.
I don't think he really does. He just wants to say it for an image. But it gives Wal-Mart a free plug every time.
That is insane when you think about it. What is there to appeal? A large citizen base has decided she must go. How is that appealed? Is she asking for time to win them over to her side? That isn't going to happen. Do you happen to know on what grounds she is attempting to appeal?
They must agree with the leftists that Trump supporters are "smelly Wal-Mart people".
You'd think they'd get a clue that the left looks down on their business and side with the people they are insulting as their shoppers! Go figure.
I guess we can add all big business as being in leftist hands. I wonder what Hannity will say about this -- he always gives them a freebie plug on his show when he says he shops there.
The owner is a GENIUS!
