    I’m a Mormon, but I commend the Baptists for taking up this discussion. It is important for clergy to get a handle on dealing with these issues.

    I have never been a racist, but the existence of affirmative action brought me about as close to it as I ever got. This is a great day. Let merit and content of character be enshrined as our litmus test forever!

    What person of any race wants to know in the back of their minds that the only reason they are where they are is because of the color of their skin? Though originally not intended as such, affirmative action is cruel, patronizing and denigrating.

    To know that you can strive, achieve, earn, and accomplish without a racist crutch like affirmative action is truly liberating. This is the best thing to happen to minority races in a long time. It is time for them to be truly liberated.

    Is purging fascistic in principle or is it not?

  • April 21, 2014 at 4:42pm

    How convenient! First you say the Christian purge is a “BIGOT purge”, thereby acknowledging the substance of the article. Now you say it doesn’t exist. Nice.

    In the Judaism of 2000 years ago, the Pharisees believed in the resurrection.

    No purging. Remember, the door always goes both ways. That said, I believe we should have the courage and fortitude to defend our families and uphold principles of freedom. I don’t care what religion people are who stand for religious freedom are, if they are willing to defend the rights and privileges we have been blessed with. We stand together or we hang separately.

    It is a purge nonetheless. There is nothing confusing about that concept. I suppose all you have to do is call the people you want to purge a bigot, and it becomes ok.

    Common elements among religions in many cases suggest common roots. When there are common threads of creation, the flood, and the resurrection amongst many faiths from diverse geographies and cultures (and there are), our ears should perk up and we should pay attention.

    Either way, it is just the same. Aside from the bunny and egg, Easter has lost its original Pagan meaning anyway. When kids do their Easter egg hunts and wait for the Easter Bunny, they aren’t worshiping the fertility goddess. Quite frankly, most of them don’t even know what a fertility goddess is, let alone how to worship one.

    Purge away, smarmy little fascists! I want to see who you are and I want you to know who I am. I contributed to promote Constitutional Amendments in three states, including California. My only regret is that I didn’t draft bigger checks.

    The assertion that promoting traditional marriage makes me homophobic is a joke. I have never mistreated anyone on account of their sexual preference, and in fact, I had a study partner in college who was gay. That doesn’t mean I have any obligation whatsoever to promote unnatural marriage, I will not be lectured to on treating people who are different than me by people who hunt down people they disagree with and attempt to destroy their lives.

    Yes, the bunny and the eggs are pagan fertility emblems, and yes, I believe it is harmless. Neither I nor my children do the easter bunny thing or coloring eggs as part of our worship, nor do we think of fertility when we eat a chocolate bunny. It is a fun tradition for the kids that has lost all of its religious meaning. As such, let it go.

    Another thing, I don’t agree with Constantine on several things, but I hardly put this on the top of the list of abominations. I think that Constantine putting the commemoration of Christian events on pagan holidays is a pragmatic decision. Pagan dating or not, do you commemorate the resurrection of the Lord or do you not? I’m sure that whether you commemorate His birth/death/resurrection on the exact day or not is not a high priority item for the Lord.

    If you commemorate His birth, death, and resurrection in the spirit of worship, I’m sure the Lord is not too concerned with whether you got the exact date perfect.

    Good on ya, Buck! That’s a high compliment to be able to substitute for the great Maha Rushi!

    Oh, but I do Sirhan. I don’t claim to know everything about Islam, but I do know enough to make that call.

  • April 16, 2014 at 4:27pm

    Sirhan,

    You’ve made my point exactly. Muhammad fulfills those prophesies just about as much as I do, which means: he doesn’t.

  • April 16, 2014 at 3:10pm

    There is nothing in any of those scriptures that uniquely points to Muhammad. Wherever you have inserted the “(Muhammad)”, I could insert my name and it would be just as accurate.

    This isn’t the issue to do it over.

    I know there are a lot of rightfully indignant people out there, and there is a time to stand against injustice. The problem is, this ain’t it. The Nevada State Constitution ratified in 1864 declares that that land belongs to the Federal Government. Right or wrong, it is a fact. Some of the land that Bundy allows his animals to graze on is not his property, and since he has not paid his grazing fees since 1993, he is trespassing unless he forks over the roughly 1 million dollars he is in arrears for. Now those are facts. Question: do you want to start a revolution over grazing fees?

    Now I agree that the BLM is handling this wrong, but we need to pick our battles. Believe me, I take no joy in not being able to stand with so many of you whom I respect. I have to stand with Glenn on this one, not because I don’t believe there will never be a time to make a stand, but that this is not that moment.

  • April 15, 2014 at 11:56am

    I am extremely sympathetic to Bundy and to those who stand with him in principle. However, the facts are not in their favor, guys. This is not the fight you want.

    It almost makes me wonder whether deep inside she hates her life and sees this as a way out. That this girl finds meaning in her life through murder speaks to her spiritual bankruptcy.

    I knew there were alterations, but I would be glad to look at the evidence so I can understand better what was changed.
