    I say we create a new abortion law. Whenever a woman goes in for an abortion, she writes down her name on a piece of paper and puts it into a hat. A piece of paper that has the word “baby” on it is also put into the hat. A piece of paper is put into the hat that has the name of the abortion doctor on it. And then a final piece of paper is put into the hat with the name of one of the elected officials from that state who supports abortion.

    One of the pieces of paper is pulled from the hat randomly, and whatever name is written on that piece of paper is the one who gets aborted. I mean, if we’re going to kill people who have no say in the matter, we might as well fight for equality, right? Like Pay Equality and Marriage Equality. We need Abortion Equality. Everybody has a right to get aborted without their permission, just like the baby.

    Sound good? Good. Let’s get it done. Abortion Equality 2016!

    I loved your letter.
    It’s a shame that she’ll never read it.

    “The expansion of government under the liberalism in carnet, Resident Obama…”

    I think that was supposed to be “incarnate” and “President”.

    Haha! I found the original “Storytime” video and just took a screenshot of it.

    But thanks anyway!

    Use an add-on called Ghostery.

    Finally! Common sense has arrived on the scene!

    Susan Calloway Knowles? Any relation to the amazing singer Susan Calloway?

    You kinda look like her in the face…

    That makes no sense though. You cannot force a business to accept or deny service to somebody, just because they are a for-profit organization. Should Abercrombie & Fitch be required by law to make clothing for fat people? Should a publishing company run by a black family be required to publish a book celebrating the history of the Klan?

    Should a Jewish deli be required to serve pork, just because some idiotic lawmakers redefine the word “beef brisket ” to mean “meat from cows AND pigs”? Because that’s exactly the sort of thing that’s happening here. A word has been redefined to mean something totally different than it used to mean. And because these people are rejecting the idiotic redefinition, they are being punished for it.

    Just because a business is for-profit, it doesn’t mean they have to do whatever their idiotic customers or policymakers tell them to do.

    It’s not that they’re dumb. They’re adding it to schools to indoctrinate kids into thinking that entering highly personal and private information about yourself and your daily habits is “normal”. That way, in 20 years, they can charge people who eat sugar double the healthcare premiums of people who don’t eat sugar, because they have all your daily eating habits in a neat little spreadsheet.

    This woman is just insane. She’s what most people would call a “yuppie”. She thinks she’s better than ordinary working people. What kind of psychopath hates kids, open-air markets, and herb gardens? Yuppies. That’s what kind.

    I love the food, styles, and traditions that immigrants bring to America! What I don’t like is when they bring toxic cultural, political, or religious beliefs here. Welcome to America! Bring the best of your culture with you, leave the worst of your culture behind.

    Uh… no normal people, that’s for sure. Maybe some psychopaths with anger management issues. If ordinary simple people annoy you just by living their lives, maybe YOU are the problem, not them.

    What is wrong with this lady? She clearly hasn’t “assimilated” herself into American culture. She’s probably never been outside of her pathetic little city. I’ve never been ANYWHERE in America where frog legs weren’t something people ate. They’re very popular in the South, and even places like Boston have restaurants that serve fried frog legs.

    Turtle Soup used to be a very in-demand thing for rich people in America. It’s one of those rare foods that only the elites and the wealthy could afford in fine restaurants.

    This woman is just an idiot.

    “These people obviously don’t realize that our ancestors originally settled on our shores in order to escape a government that, in their opinion, didn’t provide enough supervision over their religious activities.”

    I almost fell out of my chair laughing at that one. Like, the little thing that normally locks my computer chair in place wiggled loose, and I leaned back while laughing, and thought I was going to fall over when the locking mechanism didn’t do anything to stop the chair from reclining.

    Thanks, Matt.
    Most exciting moment I’ve had all morning.

    @Surak

    You totally took that to mean something it doesn’t mean. It wasn’t an indictment of ALL Pharisees or Sadducee teachings. Jesus was a Rabbi, after all. He obviously knew that it was a specific group of teachers that were the problem, not the teachings in general.

    Stop being so sensitive. Stop trying to be a victim. Stop the petty vindictive attitude. Else you will go around snatching insults out of the jaws of a compliment.

    Yeah… that whole “homosexuals/fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of God” thing is going to come as a pretty huge surprise. He probably should have finished reading the Bible all the way to the end…

    To put things in a less controversial setting, the government is not obligated to issue a car license to you just because you entered into a sales contract with somebody. If you buy a car, and it doesn’t meet the SPECIFIC DEFINITION of being a safe, operating vehicle, then the state won’t issue you a car license. The definition of “safe and operating” might get more strict over time as new hazards are discovered, but it should never get more broad.

    Likewise, just because two lesbians decide to get married by some Wiccan high priestess on a hippie commune, it doesn’t mean the government is required to recognize it. That’s the issue here, recognition.

    If the state gives out car licenses to people who have unsafe and non-operational vehicles, then the license to the “safe and operating” vehicle is now meaningless. You void out the meaning of “safe and operating” by issuing it to something that is the opposite.

    Giving out marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples means that marriage no longer has any meaning, because it has been watered down and re-defined so broadly that it can now mean anything you want it to mean. And the end result is that you destroy marriage, regardless of who issues the contract.

    It’s similar to giving out Superbowl rings to everybody who plays football. If there is no special recognition that one team is better, then the rings become meaningless.

    What do you mean by “state marriages”? Marriage is a contract. The state doesn’t issue the contract, it just RECOGNIZES it. When you buy a car at the car dealership, and you enter into a sales contract, the government recognizes that contract, and issues you your car license, but they don’t get a say in whether or not you should be allowed to enter into that contract or not.

    It’s none of the government’s business. That’s the problem. It’s like when the government tries to stick its nose in any other kind of contract negotiations. The government isn’t allowed to force anybody to issue contracts they disagree with, be they business or personal.

    Since this is a sensitive topic, let’s put it in the realm of something less sensitive. Imagine that you own a home, that you purchased using a real estate contract. Now, imagine that the government comes along and says “People who are homeless want real estate contracts too, but they have no money or homes, so we’re just going to issue real estate contracts to them so they feel equal with traditional homeowners.” Does that make any sense at all? Of course not!

    It’s not that the government should have separate marriage rites than religions, it’s that the government is trying to issue a contract that defines a very specific traditional union to people who don’t meet the definition of that union.

    At best, it’s utter nonsense. At worst, it’s deception and intentional degradation of traditional values.

    So, Matt Stolhandske not actually giving money to them himself? He just made a Kickstarter page and expects other people to help them?

    This isn’t “compassion”, this is “publicity”. This guy is acting just like the Pharisee and Sadducee groups that did all their good deeds in public, so that everybody knew how good and moral they were. If this guy were truly following in Jesus’ steps, he’d tell people to repent, turn from their wickedness, and seek the Kingdom of God; rather than seek to change laws regarding marriage.

    Also, if he really wanted to do good, he would have just collected money from people quietly, and given it to the wedding cake people without making a big fuss over it. This whole thing stinks of a PR stunt for his organization. He’s not sacrificing anything, giving up anything of real value, and it’s not coming out of his pocket.

    What an amazing lie this guy is weaving. Such an elaborate deception merits what Jesus told people in his time who did the same sorts of things.

    “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.”
    -Jesus Christ

    @ Ripe for Parody,

    People loved her long before they saw her face. They read the words she wrote LONG before they heard her voice on the radio, or saw her face on the glowing screen.

    You see, to conservatives, women aren’t just an object to have sex with, or political tools. The way she thinks, the way she protects and guards and keeps her family… those are things that you find in the character of God. And to a conservative, that’s not strange, since most conservatives believe that mankind is made in the image of God.

    So where a liberal sees a woman as a sexual being that can kill her unborn children, a conservative sees a woman as an infinitely precious being who, having been made in the image of God, is willing to go to hell and back… all for the sake of her children. There is nothing in the progressive liberal worldview that even comes close to the kind of reverence and respect that conservatives have for the power of a woman.

    “I pushed on — out of anger, out of spite, out of pure punk rock defiance. I was born for the storm and loved to fight. I thrived.”

    I’m so buying this book. If the rest of it is anything like the intro, it’s going to be a gold mine for amazing quotes like this one. Dana Loesch rocks.
