It is people who make comments like this that give God and true believers a bad name. Only He knows what is in their hearts and with every thought and deed He knows about them and EVERYONE else, He loves us all anyway. “Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.” No one was ever badgered into His loving arms. This is the time to show grace, love and mercy.

The mother had other children with her. In other sources it states the father was not with them (at work, serving his country any other number of reasons). She would have risked her life and possibly the life of her son if the gorilla saw her as a threat and what if the other children being afraid followed her in. It’s unfortunate that it ended the way it did. Perhaps the zoo will make the inclosed more secure.

Many parents don’t realize the cost of both parents working outside the home. Two vehicles, twice the insurance, gas for both, registrations, maintenance, etc. Income tax rate much higher with 2 incomes. An additional wardrobe of “work attire,” child care costs, meals purchased “to go” rather than less costly home-made, lunches bought at work, etc. It costs money just to have a job! The biggest losers, your children. You can’t be there to be “room-mother,” go on field trips, oversee what they are seeing & hearing. If you want your child to read and write cursive (in case they would like to read letters from Grandma or the Declaration of Independence you’d better teach them at home, they will not learn this valuable tool in school, it teaches dexterity, patience, artistry, so many things. There are home school curriculums to fit any need. You don’t need teaching credentials, the material is right in front of you. You have already taught them so many things and know them best. They can learn at their pace, it takes less time also, as so much time, at a school, is wasted. You control what is influencing your child. They get to be raised by you. There are so many parents doing this today, as well as groups of parents who support each other and make it work. One may teach math, another reading, science, etc. It is not as difficult as the elites would have you believe. I know this isn’t possible for many, just keep involved, go to the school and check the curriculum.

Sadly the programming of our youth started many years prior to Obama’s birth. The Progressives, communists, socialists, Marxists, etc., have been planning, plotting, getting themselves in positions of power in our educational systems, re-writing history and, in general programming our kids at younger and younger ages, to believe all they are saying and, using their power of influence to subvert the authority and respect that “back in the day” was assumed. I am convinced that the old adage “respect your elders” has long been gone.
However, there are too many of us who love God, our families and our country to let it go down. I believe those who want to find our way back to that which is good and right far outnumber those who don’t. I also believe that we have a stronger argument for what we believe and a more sincere, honest and humble passion to restore what has been lost.

This is news. Given all the anti-gun ranting that is going on. It’s a good thing for people who may be on the fence about whether or not to arm themselves, to see they are not alone and that many believe it is the best way to provide protection as the most likely first responders. I am encouraged to see people exercising their 2nd amendment rights. The more guns the good guys own the less likely it will be for them to be victims and that much more difficult for this government to disarm citizens.
If I could, I would build a “Guns R Us” on every corner. I must also say I don’t understand why it would bother you so much that this story was written. This news site has brand new readers every day. I link a lot of stories to facebook which, in turn, exposes this medium to others.
I also think most people who get their news from here are probably the type, like me, who are sick of “political correctness” and hearing daily stories about people being “offended” by the slightest things, like a news story. As a side note, I find myself becoming more offended by all those who seem to be “offended” by anything and everything regardless of how slight and unintended the “offense,” like being “offended” because you appear to feel personally condescended to because this story was written. Sorry if this sounds “offensive,” but can we all develop some thicker skin?
I apologize, in advance, if I have offended anyone.

Ben Carson is smarter, wiser and more politically calculating that anyone gives him credit for. Cruz is my man but I would be honored to see a Cruz/Carson ticket.
 November 21, 2015 at 4:41pm
Given the fact that he would be the REAL first Black president and wickedly smart and sincerely humble, I would say yes, absolutely.
 November 21, 2015 at 4:35pm
It sounds great, however, I can’t see Trump taking well respected and educated advice from anyone. His ego is way too big. I wish it weren’t so because I believe it would be a sound ticket if Trump could do what he does best and Cruz would be free to do what he does best.

I don’t know why that’s relevant but if it makes you FEEL better.
Hey there, anyone who doesn’t know, Ben Shapiro write for Breitbart!! He also currently writes a column for Creators Syndicate, is editor-in-chief at The Daily Wire, an editor-at-large for Breitbart News, and founder/editor-in-chief for the media watchdog group TruthRevolt.
I note your request for respect for your beliefs, I also note, you think a Christian generalization is “stupid,” I believe all, if not most, are stupid.
You may believe the complexity known as the universe and everything in it, came into being billions of years ago, defying, if nothing else than sheer logic, both the 1st and 2nd laws of thermal dynamics. But then, everyone is allowed their delusions.
What do people who do not believe in the Bible or Tora use as a moral compass? (Please, it’s also a book of history and allegory, stay on topic) I am referring to the 10 Commandments, love your enemies, do unto others what you would have them do unto you, love is patient, love is kind, For God so loved the world, etc.
I absolutely know there are many people who are atheists who are some of the kindest people I have ever met. There are also very evil people who have done and are doing unspeakable things who call themselves atheists. Yes, Westboro Church is evil. Parity please.
I wonder what compass MH-P and those who believe things I don’t want to type use? “Natural News denounced Melissa Harris-Perry, the latest talking head “death worshipper” to publicly imply she supports the murder of living, breathing newborn children. According to Harris-Perry, life begins when the parents feel like life begins. And together with some twisted new “ethics” arguments from the radical left, this can include months or years after a child is born.” Seems O.K. to them.

All sickness, disease, illness of any kind comes from hell, among those things there are many other things that are thrown at us because he has been defeated, he knows it and all he can do now is taunt us and draw our attention away from the only one who has the power and desire to give us a peace, beyond even our own understanding, with the God of Creation. I know there will be many who do not believe and will say if God is good why do bad things happen? I understand the question, I felt the same way for many years until I really understood the concept of “free will.” We can choose to believe or not, we can choose ourselves to be good and kind to others or not, people choose everyday to do good or evil. God would have to intervene in the individual lives of every person who has ever lived, ever will live, and is living now. We would be no different than robots or “Stepford Wives” for those of you old enough to know that reference. You hit the nail on the head “Yendorz.” Here is a link to a great video by Todd White on when healing does not come. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppOLPHwDgZc Just in case this comes up, and I am sure it will, Jesus spoke more about hell than he ever did about Heaven, look it up. That is why “The great commission” is just that, Matthew 18:19-20

Correction: Should read “there was no “way” they were going to send help.

We can hope and pray that you are right, and “RealLiibertarian,” this is about 600 requests for more security from someone who Hillary claims was a “friend.” This is about lying, and knowing ahead of time that because they were running guns that if anything “went wrong” there was no was they were going to send help because the truth would be found out. It’s about a massive “cover-up” that took a great deal of thought and planning while Christopher Stevens was being gang-raped, tortured and only God knows what else. This is about a Bad, Really Bad person who thinks she is entitled to be president and her slimy husband. They have collectively been involved in more scandals over many years, including her knowingly and willingly letting the rapist of a teenage girl go free and “celebrating the WIN.” This is not about stupid politics. She intentionally did not release this information until she knew it would be taken by the FBI. It was not voluntary. However, never waste a crisis, now she can blame it on the Republicans trying to destroy her campaign, very convenient. This is about people who have no character at all and will do ANYTHING to get the power they want.
Correction: Should read "there was no "way" they were going to send help.

They are still finding new info daily. I would rather they have “all their ducks in a row” so there is no question as to their determination. Otherwise this will be batted back and forth forever. Get it right and be done with it.

People ask battered women why they stay with the abuser, then if they do conquer the fear of being killed if they leave, they are berated by people who tell them they should be at home. Please remember many women work outside the home because they need an income, not because they don’t want to be with their children.

This has been going on for a lot longer than most people know. If you really want to know the history take some time to learn it from a professor of history who has made it his life’s work to show with irrefutable historical data what started this, the lies that have been perpetuated to intentionally deceive generations. This will explain clearly just how determined and patient the islamic radicals are. Please watch and pass this on, everyone must be aware of what the “Plan” is, there are more videos available. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_Qpy0mXg8Y

Any conversation that diverts attention away from the dangerous, bumbling, egomaniacle Obama and his socialist agenda will do.

nolefan2, She is obviously already Blessed in more ways than we can say here without someone challenging our assumptions. I am proud to be your neighbor (also from a Detroit suburb) and most likely your sister in the Lord. I am quite a bit older and have seen many things change, for the good. There are so many more Conservative Black Americans than most people realize, it is the Left’s very powerful propaganda that has too many blacks believing the lies they have been told. God Bless you friend, I hope to be able to meet some day.
