As usual in these attempts by the current administration to violate the American people’s conscience, the authorities are full of it.
The Oregon Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor & Industries has ordered the Kleins to cease & desist from discriminating against any person on account of their sexual orientation – which is nonsense since the Kleins did not discriminate by refusing to bake cakes for homosexuals or lesbians’. Most probably they have baked a lot of cakes in the past for people’s birthdays, parties or whatever celebrations, some of them homosexual or lesbians – as they are doing currently and they will no doubt continue in the future.
What they have refused to do is to bake WEDDING cakes for same sex people, because they believe that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman, which contradicts the new definition of marriage invented by the infamous supreme court. Actually they have not discriminated against anyone because of their sexual orientation, what they have done is refuse to accept the supreme court diktat about marriage – period.
Rather like Thomas More, who had nothing personally against Anne Boleyn, but couldn’t accept the king’s diktat concerning his definition of marriage.

You have never been to Israel, obviously!!
FYI, about 20% of the population there are Israelis muslims and recent polls show that most prefer to live in Israel rather than in any of the Hamas-controlled provinces of Judea, Samaria and Gaza – rather than in any muslim country for that matter. So far, the Arabs Israelis have had 69 representatives at the Knesset since 1948 (12 at the moment), they are subject to the same laws and benefit from the same protection and the same social services as the other residents/citizens whatever their religion or lack thereof. It is in Israel that the Bahais, e.g. have found refuge. Why do you think the Gazaouis, including Mrs. Abbas, come in droves to be treated in Israelis hospitals?
As to the Christians, I can assure you that I have been welcome in Israel every time I visited. In fact, I felt more secure over there than anywhere else in Europe. I never had to hide the cross around my neck, or any other sign of my being a Christian, which I couldn’t possibly do nowadays in Europe. Since Jerusalem’s liberation, there are no more Jordanian soldiers pointing their rifles to us visitors from the roofs of the Holy Sepulchre; the Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant churches and temples, rebuilt after the wars, are well maintained, well attended and protected by the authorities like other places of worship.
Gosh, it’s fantastic the amount of crap that has been planted in the heads of apparently educated people!

These 300 clowns and the rest of their democrat fellows still don’t get it, they are too far gone into la la land. They don’t realize that they are finished, going down with Mr. Obama. Instead of wallowing into their everlasting lunacies, they’d better start organizing their flight from America if they want to avoid being indicted for high treason. Their bid for Mrs. Clinton-Benghazi-Abedin or that pathetic, shameless marxist Warren, they can shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

The islamo-socialists are not going to puncture now the balloon of lies about “the religion of peace” that they have been inflating for so many years, it will have to explode by itself. It’s too late now for them to acknowledge reality.
They have no alternative but to shelve such religious violence as another incident of workplace violence, school violence, shopping mall violence, domestic violence – whatever but the truth – and to continue to blow their fallacies in the wind.

Obviously you are not familiar with Orthodox Jews. They start their religious studies as very young children and continue all their life, day and night, whatever the day, the month or the year. Nothing matters to them but constant study of the sacred Books.
Atikva – I wouldn't say "nothing matters to them but constant study of sacred Book". Studying the Torah and Talmud are central to the life of the Orthodox Jew, but as the Jewish sages throughout history have said, knowledge that is not put into action is wasted. The knowledge gained has the purpose of informing the Jew how to best serve God. By action, the sages meant doing good works, doing God's will, and improving the world in any way they can.

“Schuette … regrets posting the message and his business…is suffering”
Duh.. This is Alabama, but this new version of an Einstein apparently never noticed it.

Another journalist discovers that she has been used by the islamo-socialist regime for the past 25 years or so… duh! Bernie Goldberg discovered long before she did that journalists in America were not meant any more to report the news, but to spread the ideology that has been hammered into their heads during their college years – and was punished for spilling the beans.
Amazing, all these highly educated people can’t look reality in the face until they are personally under attack by their former colleagues and bosses, a.k.a. the establishment.

I hope the SPA, the secret service and a whole lot of involved parties press charges against this enemy of the canine race. Whatever grudges the perpetrator harbored against the occupants of the White House, harming an innocent working animal is unforgivable.

Of course we can – nay, we MUST – cut ourselves from West Africa, what’s this new nonsense?
As to knowing how to fight an Ebola epidemic, from the ignoramus-in-chief and his abysmally incompetent clique, please don’t make us laugh! The only thing we can be sure of is that will frantically manipulate and hide the truth to try and control the damage among voters – period.

There should be no cap to the remuneration of any US serviceman who does his duty and does it well. The penpushers, no matter their ranks, are in a different league.

I hope someone also will “understand” if ever I find myself in the same situation.

Everything is an illness: depression, alcohol, sex addiction, child abuse, certain types of murder, pedophilia, chain smoking, parental failure, juvenile mass killing, stuffing your face until you explode, you name it; and when it’s not an illness, it’s an allergy.
In the meantime, most really afflicted people, including the dying ones, are performing feats every day to overcome their handicaps and live a normal, self-supporting, happy life, with or without external help. And believe it or not, they don’t think that they are “entitled” to anything beyond life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They have my sympathy and admiration.
Adult I am, but not of the “forever irresponsible” kind.

“Dems love to attack the rich…” yeah, as long as they are not one of them. I haven’t ever seen anything negative from the left concerning, say, Mrs. Clinton’s finances for instance.

Thanks but no thanks, the risk of being poisoned is too great.

How can you determine what “a fair living wage” is for this kind of employees who make much more with tips than with their salaries? They must think this is another one of their “entitlements” for having been born.

Even before he asked, we had already given and we will are going to give more to support the Israelis. If you don’t like it, that’s too bad.
As to your insults, crass ignorance and lies, you may store them where the sun doesn’t shine for all we care.

Good article, only could you please avoid the politically correct terminology and use the accurate word when mentioning Hamas? Hamas is a recognized terrorist organization. Therefore its members are not “militants”, they are TERRORISTS. Hamas terrorists, period.

Why on earth apologize for Israel?
Israel is currently exercising its God-given right to exist and to defend itself when attacked, like any other country in the world. Let’s not waste any more time with this “apology” nonsense. Rather we should concentrate on helping this great little country defeat our common enemies the islamists, who have being trying for decades to exterminate the Jews and to subjugate the West.
The word apologize means to explain, not asking for forgiveness like most people misunderstand.
Most of the Epistles in the New Testament are apologetics.

“A weakling”? That’s what I call the understatement of the year!
If only it was just “a weakling”, but first and foremost, it is a hater of everything American. And incidentally, this person was elected in 2008 yes, with some voters fraud. But re-elected in 2012, not so sure. Too many things didn’t add up and the voters fraud was phenomenal.

Rockets fired by whom, “Gaza militants”? Come on, Zach Noble, you are not reading us a fairy tale at bedtime.These rockets are fired by none others than HAMAS TERRORISTS and/or Arab “palestinians”, period. High time to drop the newspeak, tell the truth and call things and people by their proper name.
