"Honest?" That would be contrary to everything President Obama stands for.

6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel- 7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. 10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning. --Gandhi

The time to fight back is now.... "Gun owners, horrified and then outraged by a full court press from the government, the “Authorized Journalist” media and citizen disarmament advocacy groups, are beginning to push back in a coordinated effort, and are sensing that their enemies, over-confident and unrestrained, have let their reach exceed reality, and revealed an end game that’s beyond their grasp. Fear and bewilderment at being scapegoated and punished for monstrous crimes enabled by the very people now demanding even more suicidal disarmament edicts is being replaced with anger and resolve, and there’s a sense that the sound and fury is just that, and contrary to the Borg ultimatum, resistance is definitely not futile, and not only that, but that it’s time to go on the offensive and kick some hindquarters."

Someone told me they wanted me to be successful. Because their husband was successful and rich and was buying them a new sports car or whatever. I guess it was a sweet sentiment except that all I heard her say was "You're not successful now." On the contrary.

January 8th, 2013 The last class I was told NOT to hold the hand but the distance, not blocking an attack but allow it to reach the limit and stand close to the attacker's fist; Our instinct dictate to avoid an attack and therefore we try to put more distance between us and the attacker; the more the better; but this is not always good since it gives the attacker the opportunity to attack again, probably faster and more precisely than the previous attack. That's the reason we should be close to the attacker's fist just in a safe distance not more than that; and if our hand is holding his hand then is harder to counter-attack; on the contrary if our hand is not holding his, then we are able to strike back, or grab etc. Very nice class, I enjoy it a lot and it was good to get together again, viva el ninjutsu!!!

"Direct abortion, that is to say willed as an end or as a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law."

It is really something to hear people that have no concept of reality talk about more guns being the solution when every single bit of real world evidence and every experiment attempt to test the theory have proven the contrary... Your Glock has absolutely no chance against an assault weapon! It also has no chance against someone that shows up already shooting w disregard for self or others!!! You pull a gun when someone is already shooting and you will be the next target before having a chance to aim! Shooting at cardboard in a range is not the same as shooting in real life: ask any soldier that saw real action!

I personally prefer the "I'm such a #!$%@&! pussy because I have never had to make it on my own that I have to blame others for my ethical shortcomings," closely followed by "I'm a delusional retard who likes to think being wealthy is a lifestyle choice in spite of evidence to the contrary in order to feign a superiority complex over my fellow man." This certainly is a fun game, anyone else got any good ones?

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

And her new place is great and she looks great..so today was a wonderful day!

Given the many challenges in society that abound today, which particular injustice does the Lord want me to bring His liberation to? On the contrary, we must proclaim through our actions what we believe in and what we fight for, wherever we may be. This may seem like a tall order, and the difficulties we now face may seem enormous, but we will overcome it all because we have an even greater God....

13. Drugs/Alcohol: Breeding a society of chemically abused and dependent individuals is one way to get people to accept matters contrary to their morals, and to rely on the government to help them get through it. Addiction robs us financially and psychologically while diverting law enforcement efforts to other areas. Prescribed medicine makes us reliant on pills and doctors while ballooning Big Pharma profits.

This is an economical and environmental solution...it is not about "drugs" - contrary to what mainstream propaganda would want us to think. Let's move past the fear and begin educating ourselves and friends.

Quote Examples using Contrary

Better than them all, however, is the patient endurance of afflictions; and he who has been found worthy of this great gift should give thanks to God in that he has been all the more blessed. For he has become an imitator of Christ, of His holy apostles, and of the martyrs and saints: he has received from God great strength and spiritual knowledge, so that he may voluntarily abstain from pleasure and may readily embrace hardship through the eradication of his own will and his rejection of unholy thoughts, and may thus always do and think what is in accordance with God’s will. Those who have been found worthy of using things as they ought to be used should in all humility give heartfelt thanks to God, for by His grace they have been freed from what is contrary to nature and from the transgression of the commandments. We, however, who are still subject to the passions and who still misuse things, and who therefore act in a manner that is contrary to nature, should tremble and in all gratitude should give heartfelt thanks to our Benefactor, astonished at His unutterable forbearance, in that though we have disobeyed His commandments, misused His creation and rejected His gifts. He endures our ingratitude and docs not cease to confer His blessings on us, awaiting until our last breath for our conversion and repentance. St Peter of Damaskos

God has plans for our nation, but He won't force us to follow His will. To the contrary, He has given us free will, both as individuals and as a people. And, of course, with the freedom to choose comes the responsibility of living with the consequences of the choices we make. Let us, as standard-bearers of the American Dream, seek guidance through the study of God's Word, and let us be watchful for His signs. God has richly blessed our nation, and He intends to use America in wonderful, unexpected ways. May er discover God's plan for our land, and may we follow it.

The dairy industry says dairy is good for us. The big agriculture industry says high fructose corn syrup is good for us. The beef and cattle industry says red meat is good for us.

People with success at healing people of every kind of cancer from every stage of cancer says dairy, red meat, GMOs, and artificial sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup is bad for us. I'm not a scientist but I admire them and their contribution to the world. Like in any other profession their are wise scientists and their are quacks.

It is interesting to note that, contrary to stereotypes about low-income, unmarried parents, a significant majority—more than 8 in 10—of urban, low-income fathers and mothers are in a romantic relationship when their children are born. Most of these couples expect that they will get married. One study found that more than 80 percent expected they would get married or live together. However, only 11 percent of these couples had actually married a year later. Why they do not marry is an interesting question open to conjecture. What are your thoughts on the matter? Why aren't we getting married?

We are fixated on finding the niceness and love in everything. Everything is not loving and to posit it so is one of the greatest denials humanity has ever made and is still making. Why are we so afraid to say unloving is unloving? What makes us want to pretend there is love inside of denial? Until a spade is call a spade instead of a flower that has not budded the veils of illusion remain inside of the loving. That is joke upon us during this age. At least the unloving isn't trying to parade itself around as loving but when loving tries to love unloving it is treating its love with ultimate disrespect and danger.

Mary asks about Rhogam: Help please! I am RH negative and 14 weeks pregnant with my second child. I have a 6 year old daughter with vaccine induced autism. I had a Rhogam shot while pregnant with her because I was not informed then as to what it really was. My OB said I needed it so I thought I was being a good mother and got it. Boy is hindsight 20/20! So my dilemma is what to do with this baby. I don't want to take it but my doctor is warning me of possible still birth. Advice? Any other RH - moms on here skip it? Thanks in advance!

Tonight, we'd like to continue to look at food dyes with a focus on Blue 2, another common coloring in our food supply. Blue 2, like every other artificial food color, is known to exacerbate hyperactivity in children. While no human studies have been conducted, studies in rats have shown significant developments of brain cancers in the animals ingesting Blue 2. While the FDA has deemed the coloring safe, the Center for Science in the Public Interest has declared that its safety is questionable and calls for further study. Let us know what you think!

Very interesting day. Began a discussion that quickly devolved into a debate. What is the state of the Ummah when the Muslimeen take offense at non-Muslims being called kuffar and reference ayat and ahadith that caution against calling a Muslim a "kaafir" as proof? Seriously what is going on here? Either you are Muslim or not. Everyone being on the fitrah is not some valid reason to shy away, out of taymee or worse, from calling a spade a spade. Is saying the truth evidence of hatred now? I hate non-Muslims because I call them disbelievers? GOH. If you do not believe in Islam, you are not a kaafir? For reals? The people who say stuff like this are strange to me.

With the news today form what is going on in Washington and what Obama is threatening to do I suspect the US Constitution will be no more. It can be changed by simply a president signing an executive order without approval of congress or the people. I strongly suggest people start stocking up on water, rice, beans, corn meal, flour, lard, and canned goods. Get fuel in gas cans and take out as much money from your banks accounts as you can and hold onto it. It’s going to become a rough ride. Do not say you have not been warned, you have.

Ive kinda told myself to ease up on the political Rants. However, the politicians are killing me with the "assault weapons" ban talk again. Now the play is to admit that they "know" that banning assault weapons will not stop the madness of some people but shamelessly push for it anyway. Like it makes it constitutional. Isnt this likened to banning tennis rackets because of all the recent ping pong deaths? Holy #!$% stop the world I want to get off !

"Most people prefer to believe that their leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a Citizen acknowledges that the government under which he lives is lying and corrupt, the Citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." --Michael Rivero

Yup, gonna say it again: So it may be that contrary to what we've always thought, and what so many new-age bullshit artists are hawking, our purpose is not to fulfill our desires. Our purpose may be to be vessels of desire, and that is enough. Yes, our desires are a gift. They animate us and give us life. And there it is! Our desires animate us - not their fulfillment. Indeed, their fulfillment, our satiation, makes us fat, slow and lazy, which is a kind of death. Perhaps the greatest gift we can know is unfulfilled desire, and to suffer joyfully from them, for they enliven us. - Johnny Nash

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. Benjamin Franklin, On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor, November 1766

As we have the media showing every piece of propaganda for gun control, but no data regarding the other side, as you would expect from real journalists. It is often necessary to delve a little deeper looking for both sides. A judge at least gets briefs from both sides and then makes a decision based on evidence and testimony. The American people today don't get that. We get what the media, blogs and social websites give us. It is rarely factual and most often hearsay. I have spent the last few months researching a few hot topic issues, including gun laws. I was actually surprised by what I have found so far... Though I grew up in a house with a gun or two, they were mostly inherited and never used. I am not a member of the NRA or any other gun organization. What I am is the product originally of a society just outside of high density urban areas and their suburbs. I have lived in larger cities, but started in the medium sized towns where almost everyone we knew owned at least a shotgun. As children we were tought to respect them but not fear them. Were all shown how to check the chamber, put on a safety and strongly suggested to never touch them with out supervision and if we did, point them at the ground. Sounds like common sense, but the more I live in the city, the more I see this as a needed lesson. I would like to thank a friend for finding this report I remembered having seen. My favorite part is where it mentions that there is no data anywhere that supports that gun control decreases crime. To the contrary, it actually has shown quite the oposite in almost all cases. Every state, country or city has seen an increase in violent crime, including guns, that has attempted a ban. Australia, England, DC, you name it, large increases. I am presently reading a study on multiple slayings; I will pass it along once I finish it....

Remembering when I was a part of a couple of occultic churches. It was all about worshipping the bishop or the pastor. The bishop that I was under even had us practicing what I learned later was white magic. Still got family that attends that church. Sorry, I gotta tell the truth. God said let Him be true and every man a liar. If your Pastor or sheperd is teaching or doing anything contrary to God's word, pray that God direct your path to a place of true righteousness. Always follow God and don't get caught up in man.

"A famous text of Lacan, first published in the Cahiers pour l’analyse and reprinted in the first volume of Écrits, presented the object of science as the subject ‘in internal exclusion from the object’. This had a great resonance in the university village. It represented the relationship between science and knowledge by way of the Borromean knot whose surfaces interpenetrate. This image caused uproar. Theory, accordingly, did not speak truth about the true, but the truth of possibles spoke by way of theory to those who were able to hear it. For the society, the class, or the party, the crisis could be conceived, strictly speaking, as the ‘hour of truth’: ‘The important thing about times of crisis is that they reveal what had previously been latent, reject what is secondary, and display the real wellsprings of class struggle as this actually develops.’ Politics is revealed here as algebra rather than arithmetic. Its language cannot be reduced to immediate social determinants, as presupposed by the notions of reflection and superstructure. Its ‘necessity’ is of a different order, ‘far more complex’ than that of demands directly deducible from the relation of exploitation. For, contrary to what is imagined by the mechanical Marxists whom Lenin targeted, politics ‘does not docilely follow economics’. And its strategic objectives cannot be directly deduced from economic struggles. This original idea of politics pervades Lenin’s thought from start to finish, from the early polemics against the populists, or the ‘legal Marxism’ of Struve, to those of 1921 against the corporatism of the Workers’ Opposition. From 1968 on, it served us as the plumb-line against Maoist neo-populism and the diverse variants of ouvriérisme. It determined our understanding of the specific role that the student movement could play in a particular conjuncture. The division into classes, Lenin wrote on the subject of student struggles in Russia, is certainly ‘the deepest foundation of political groupings’, which ‘at the end of the day determines these groupings, but this end of the day is established by political struggle alone’. Politics, accordingly, is not the reflection of the social. It is a transposition of it, in the specific syntax and grammar of a global conflict." Daniel Bensaïd

Your body is in you. You are not in it. Your body appears to you as a series of sensory perceptions and concepts. It is in this way that you know you have a body, when you feel it or when you think of it. These perceptions and these thoughts appear in you, pure conscious attention. You do not appear in them, contrary to what your parents, your teachers and nearly the whole of the society you live in has taught you. In flagrant contradiction to your actual experience, they have taught you that you are in your body as consciousness, that consciousness is a function emerging from the brain, an organ of your body. I suggest that you do not give undue credence to this second-hand knowledge and that you inquire into the raw data of your own experience.
