If it did what you expected, you may have a keener grasp of science than others.
Getting the result you expected doesn’t lessen the fun of doing an experiment; nor does it make a person dumb to get the result they expected.
When I drop a chunk of pure sodium into a bucket of water, I get the resulting explosion that I expect to get. That doesn’t make me dumb, and that certainly doesn’t make the experiment any less fun. The mini-mushroom cloud is rather awesome, in fact.

Watched and listened to the video. Didn’t mention $50,00 deficit. What it did report, at the end of the segment, was that this $160,000 disbursement was only a small portion of what the parish has received. The remaining monies seem to not yet have a home. So, the church is NOT “reverse tithing” all the money.
That phrase is better than "coined", it's Biblical. And the end of the verse is "and walk humbly with your God.'

I agree with you that Christians CAN be hurtful and hateful. We all fall short. The issue about this letter is that there are signs within it that it is a fake. And those of us who are SAHMs or Christians (or like me, both) our ears perk up when there is an attempt to disparage this whole class of people.

But think about it. Would the callous sister then go and write a letter for help, highlighting all the terrible outcomes of her nastiness…making her sister cry, calling the police on her…to prove her point? Wouldn’t she write things in a way that would be favorable to her position? All the people I know who are trying to prove their point actually put forward facts and circumstances that would sway the listener to their side. This writer does none of that! That’s why many of us are sure this is a fake letter with an agenda.

“This is not to stop a parent who’s packing a healthy meal,” Sutherin said later. “It’s to stop the parent who’s putting marshmallows in with the Sour Patch Kids and that’s all they want their child to have for lunch.” — from the own of the facilty.
What disturbs parents is that each parent is treated the same, in this instance with an identical note. A parent who routinely only packs marshmallows and gummy snacks should be singled out. You can’t stop a parent like this from doing what they do, with a freakin note.

“I’m just warning you now…if you elect someone like Chuck Grassley, who will be on the forefront to be sure that a bar with ridiculous amounts of alcohol will be available for your judicial needs?” Okay, not a quote, but geesh, that’s a lotta booze for a little room.

Thanks for the link. Yes, it does refer to learning disabilities with both of the illnesses from which she is proposed to be suffering. And the stroke couldn’t have helped matters.

Okay, does it strike anyone as weird that the mom says her daughter cannot write or spell? Is this something she is now physically unable to do, due to a decline in her health over the last year? Did she ever know how to write or spell? Because that’s a skill you don’t lose easily. What is that statement all about?
I did think that was odd as well, however...the Blaze always finds a way to leave out pertinent details so I'm still searching for an article that specifies her condition. Hopefully that will help clarify, I'll post a link if I succeed :).
It looks like learning disabilities are among the symptoms of her disorder. Hope this helps! http://touch.courant.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-79162494/

This is the kind of backlash you can smile at.

The Happy Little Sun logo at the end credits was an ironic capper to this RIDICULOUS ad.

That’s just wrong. Everyone knows dads like BEER, not wine.

Oh Glenn, this would push all the right buttons! I hope and pray they take you up!
