Just to follow up my preceding response, I'm not coming out in strong agreement Bryan Fischer. He's certainly channeling some Old Testament prophet thinking, with the vast difference that they were understood to be proper prophets. Fischer, not so much. Thus, everyone should prayerfully repent as required, but it's far from clear that there is any judgement coming prior to the Apocalypse.
I really don't traffic in fear and guilt: sorry.

The difference used to be, that they operated outside the law.

Not quite. The difference used to be that the USA's spies broke other countries' laws for our (the American public's) benefit, whereas now they break our laws for their own benefit!

the day they catch a jihadist with a nuke backpack right before he enters Manhattan, we will both be glad they were spying on whoever it took.

Speak for yourself. I, for one, think our civil liberties are so important that preserving them even at the cost of failing to prevent some city from being nuked (including my city, killing me) would be worth it.

So, beyond our "I know you are, but what am I?" circles, what is there? I came from your dead POV into life.

You just play shallow religious/political games to avoid facing the truth.

I met the truth, and it broke me utterly. You can call me anything under the sun, but "shallow" is laughable. Faith, in the ultimate sense, is really all I have. All of the other materialistic mumbo-jumbo is transient.

APL hackers do it in the quad.
