    This is the PERFECT opportunity for non-fundamentalist Muslims to stand up and say NO to Islamo-fascism. There are so many resonable, law abiding, and respectful muslims in the world and they really get a bad wrap for not being more vocal in their opposition to extremism.

    Now some loon comes along and DEMANDS that ALL muslims pledge allegiance to him. The best way for muslims to regain their good standing in the eyes of the American people is to stand up and say HELL NO.

    Well, we know he’s not listening to the founding fathers.

    it’s not the “being outside” that’s good for your eyes, it’s the “not looking at really tiny things super close to your face” that’s good for your eyes. Being outside just accommodates this because everything outside tends to be at least a few yards out.

    The tea party in general has really made an interesting choice posturing itself as anti-science and anti-college. I remember a story about how the student loan bubble is going to result in colleges shutting down and 99% of the comments were about how they should shut down all of the colleges and how it’s a good thing.

    It’s quite a bizarre position to take in a world that has clearly benefited from the advancements brought on by science and US college education.

    You hear that, kids? Stop studying and go run around outside. Doctors orders.

    I’m sorry, why is someone asking a washed-up, gay brittish pop music star about how the Clergy should conduct themselves?

    So a co-chair of the College Republicans at UCSB wants to start a trending hashtag pointing out liberal bias in college classrooms. She makes completely unverifiable and now refuted claims that a professor said something on the first day of class last fall and, with the boost by a fox news interview regarding an alleged comment and without any context, now gets her groups hashtag trending.
    The coincidence and convenience of the whole thing makes me doubt her claim.
    It reminds me of those hate crime stories about someone reporting that a racist word was written on their door but it turns out they did it to themselves to push an agenda and look like a victim. It obviously can’t be proven either way but I really can’t get invested on either side when it’s just a he-said she-said story – especially when someone is overtly trying to push a political agenda.

    Don’t worry, the next step will be to allow men to marry one or more women. That will help bring marriage in line with the Bible’s interpretation of marriage (Gen 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5).

    Sounds moral and righteous to me. LOL.

    I love how everyone is now saying “HOW LONG UNTIL PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO MARRY 2 OR MORE PEOPLE????” Well, if we are to derive our morality and laws from the bible, then *hopefully* soon, right? (Gen 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5)

    I thought Nanci Pelosi was going to tell us what was in the bill after we passed it. Well, it’s passed Nanci. Why don’t you give us a thorough explanation of how this all works??

    I don’t understand how homosexuals have “more rights” than you do. All this ruling said is that states have the right to decide if gay marriage is ok. You can still get married everywhere, homosexuals can not. How does that mean they have more rights than you?

    I know why there were only 4,500 people there: the speech in Berlin this week was INVITE ONLY.

    Geez, I don’t like Obama in the slightest but at least try not to be so disingenuous when you slander him.

    That, my good sir, is known as a rock.

    Are you serious? I’m an atheist libertarian. The opinions of Karl Marx are the POLAR OPPOSITE of mine. It is absolutely non-sensical to relate the two. Be careful about throwing stones – the apple doesn’t fall far from the crusades…

    @LOCKED
    Your point is well taken. I think some people say they’re “pro-life” even though they still support abortion in select cases (rape, incest, etc.). There’s a gray area for people who don’t “like” abortion and don’t think it should be as common as it is but still think there are rare exceptions when it should be allowed. I think a lot of those people don’t want to be chastised for being “pro-life” so they flounder in the middle under the label of “pro-choice”.

    @CRAZY
    There is definitely a subgroup of “pro-choice” people who personally oppose abortion but don’t want to impose those beliefs on others. However, it think there’s a bit more nuance to it than just that. Like I said above, I think a lot of people think abortion should be limited to rare cases but don’t want to adopt the “pro-life” label because people will assume they want an all out ban on all types of abortion. Of course, this is the problem with pretending there are two stances you can have on an issue that is really best understood as a continuum of support.

    “the collective saying they are pro-life (48 percent) has once again edged out the pro-choice cohort (45 percent).”

    That’s actually not at all what that gallup poll shows. 78% of people said abortion should legal in at least some cases (26% of whom think it should be legal in all cases – w/e that means…). Only 20% of people polled wanted abortion to be illegal in all cases. The graph is RIGHT under the claim it’s split 50/50… wtf…

    Atheism is a “faith-based belief” in the same way it’s “faith-based” to “believe” that unicorns aren’t real. Atheism doesn’t assert anything, it just rejects the assertion of others. Atheism is a belief system like not smoking is an addiction.

    How many of the commandments are Federal or State laws?

    1) No other God’s? – NOT A LAW

    2) No graven images? – NOT A LAW

    3) Do not take Lord’s name in vain? NOT A LAW (in fact, it would be unconstitutional to restrict speech in this manner)

    4) Keep the Sabbath Day holy? – NOT A LAW

    5) Honor thy Father/Mother? – NOT A LAW

    6) Thou Shalt Not Kill? – FEDERAL & STATE LAW, (but pretty much a law everywhere, and a law that predates the bible)

    7) Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery? NOT A FEDERAL LAW, A STATE LAW IN LESS THAN 50% OF STATES

    8) Thou Shalt Not Steal? FEDERAL & STATE LAW (again, it’s illegal everywhere and this law predates the bible as well)

    9) Thou Shalt not Covet? NOT A LAW

    10) Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness? NOT A LAW (unless it’s in court)

    So to recap, out of the 10 commandments, only 2 are actually US laws. Of course, these two are laws in nearly every country on the planet including those that predate the bible so the argument can’t be made that these are exceptional to the US or christianity. One of them is sort of a law in a handful of states, although it’s not really enforced. And one is only a law in a very specific case (whereas the bible is broad in it’s commandment) – of course, this is also a law pretty much everywhere, also predates the bible.

    Remind me again, how are these commandments cornerstones of the legal system in the US?

    O_o

    wow.

    I’m not sure how one “anonymously” beats someone up but I’m pretty sure the Bible says something about doing unto others as they would… something. Darn, i forget.
