    According to your faith be it unto you.

    While I wouldn’t go so far as calling it government imposed atheism, I would say that the government, especially the court system and the education system, is certainly engaged in an attempt to suppress the freedom of religion in this country, especially for Christians. It is without question coming under full attack by atheists and progressives who are unwilling to allow individuals to make up their own minds because they simply don’t believe that all men are created equal, nor do they believe that they are all endowed by their Creator with the inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. People like Blinknight don’t seem to understand that nativity scenes at Christmas time are not the only things under attack. Just this week, there was another story about a cross being removed from a memorial simply because it was on public property.

    Christmas is a national holiday, AND it is a Christian holiday. Government employees take the day off, schools are out, and the country all but shuts down for the day. To many, it is the biggest holiday of the year. But since it’s Christian in nature, then only Christians should be taking the day off. But the government shuts down, the politicians all go home, and all those whining atheists cry if they have to work it.

    Another case of prosecutors overcharging; like to see them actually get a conviction. Ridiculous.

    Wow, I’m guessing Billy Ray must be so proud.

    Being able to see it go in both directions means you do not have a predominant side. You use your whole brain.

    Some people on this site are so are so blinded by their religion it breaks my heart. The pharisees are still alive, calling themselves Christians and living lives of legalism rather than Spirit filled lives. Lucifer stands before the throne of God accusing each of God’s children, seeking to convict them and condemn them. And here are supposed Christians quick to judge her and the church that converted her. For those that rejoice for her redemption, and trust in the Lord to lead her as she submits herself to His will, trusting in His grace and recognize that He is able to correct any errors as she learns to rely upon Him, it’s nice to know you as brothers and sisters. For the others, what’s the matter, you upset that you weren’t the ones who converted her so that you could indoctrinate her according to your legalistic form of religion?

    “I don’t know who the real Anthony Weiner is I guess.”

    Well, you might take a clue from his name. By the way, he’s married. You have no business being involved with him in any way, shape or form. And just so you know, manipulative is the very definition of a progressive. You might want to take another look at your political views, because you’ve been manipulated into thinking that progressivism is actually progressive, when in truth it is regressive. Is it any wonder you could be taken in by a snake, when you buy into the snakes lies?

    @ Smugglersrest:

    I can understand where you are coming from. When you are faced with this behavior day and night, it can become burdensome. However, what we are talking about here is bringing change, real change which brings hope to these people. Instead of giving up, if you could try to figure out a way to confront the behavior in a positive manner which will change the way that they think, it will not only make their lives better, but yours. And it could just help to change America and have the same kind of effect on our posterity as our founders had in their generation, as Abe Lincoln had in his generation, and Martin Luther King had in his generation.

    With the attitude you are taking, you lose hope, that community loses hope, and those people lose out on any chance at hope. You may not change everyone’s mind, but you might change a few, and by changing a few, you can change their lives.

    Thanks Bellama for this article. This provides some insight in how to make changes to a community that is long lasting and impactful. This is the hope and change we needed, not the hope and change we got.

    What a load of crap.

    You nailed it man. The real principles this nation was founded upon was called the laws of nature. Our founders worked incessantly to seek out the best way to establish a government in which the people of this nation would be able to govern themselves, and do so in a way which leads to prosperity. Unfortunately, we fail to teach these truths in schools any more; and the kids in the poor urban areas have absolutely no contact with these truths. Instead we focus on indoctrinating our kids into being more reliant upon government than upon themselves, indoctrinating them one way or another rather than focusing upon the truth; the good, the bad, and the ugly of it.

    This issue is one of the biggest problems America faces today, and it is a generational problem that will not go away unless we bring it to the forefront, and begin to address it in an intelligent and responsible way. That means that we cannot resort to the same type of shenanigans as those that benefit from the race bating. That just leads to deeper divisions within the country. This means that we cannot come out and call each other racist, letting accusations fly against those we may disagree with politically, or play the blame game any longer; instead, we must seek to understand what outcome our words and our actions will have on others, and thus on our nation, and thus think, speak, and act responsibly.

    I’m hoping and praying that this site is not indicative of the people of this nation as a whole, because judging from the responses that I’ve read, as a country we are not ready to handle this responsibly. All I see so far is commentators blaming the left, rather than seeking answers on how to deal with these very real deep seeded issues faced by the black community. Blaming others is not going to solve this problem. I applaud O’Reilly for taking this on. There is a lot I don’t like about him, and a reason I stopped watching his show a few years ago. But I firmly believe that if we are ever to fully realize the creed laid out in the second paragraph of the Declaration, then we need to address this vital issue, and make it a priority.

    She needs to contact her lawyer and bring a punitive damages case against the bank. They screwed up, and they have caused financial and emotional damge here. They are idiots for not simply paying the financial losses so she could recoup what they took.

  • July 25, 2013 at 5:23pm

    Ahhhh, are the teachers and their unions upset by the fact that they won’t be able to indoctrinate these kids? Or are they upset that they will lose money which they can use to to corrupt the political process? Probably a little of both.

    Why should a family schooling their own children, or even sending them to a private school, be forced to pay for public education to begin with? It only makes sense that if they home school or send their kids to a private school, then they should be able to deduct their expenses from their taxes, and that money be removed from public school’s coffers. Perhaps then they would stop their indoctrination, and start educating kids with truth rather than political correctness.

    based in the truth. You attended Catholic school k-12. You read the Bible, the Koran, and all the other holy books, and yet, your attitude shows a complete lack of wisdom. Maybe it’s because when you read the bible, it was always filtered through the Catholic lens. I don’t know. I read the Bible, and I didn’t find religion, I found a relationship with a creator who’s intention is to create me in His own image, like a son. Doesn’t make me perfect, but with age and experience, I find myself to be a much better person than I used to be. The reason being is the what the Bible has taught me, and what the Holy Spirit has taught me. To seek truth in everything; and the more I do, the more I see God’s hand at work, not only in my life, but in the world.

    Something those professors might have taught you is that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. That is what is known as consequences. This concept is not limited to physics however. It is also true for the choices that we make as individuals, as a people, and as a nation. We are given life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The pursuit of happiness is the pursuit of a good life, and a good life is a pursuit of the deepest desires of our heart. The desire for nobility, dignity, honor and integrity, respect based in truth, righteousness, and justice, as well as productivity, and competence in all these areas. This is part of human nature, something that every human desires.

    JamesCrow:

    You consider yourself a libertarian? Good for you. When was the last time they won an election again? Never? Gee, I wonder why? Could it be because they are unable to build coalitions with others? Perhaps your attitude, which is shared by so many others in the libertarian party, is the biggest reason why they haven’t won an election.

    And yet, I’ve seen comments from many in the libertarian party who I can agree with. They argue for the concept that since all men are created equal, they all have the right to pursue their life, and their liberty, as long as they inflict no harm on another man’s ability to live their lives and pursue their liberty and their happiness. This means that you don’t sit around and mock other people’s beliefs as myths; you respect them and their beliefs if you want them to respect you and yours. This is what is called mutual respect, and mutual respect is a product of the laws of nature, which is what this country was founded upon. But, I’m sure that isn’t what you were taught by your professors, now was it.

    Dude, let me put it this way. You are 23 years old. Your brain isn’t even fully developed yet, and that is according to science. Yet you think because you got your degree that you have the market cornered on knowledge and understanding? There is a greater teacher coming my friend, and that teacher is truth and experience. And eventually you’ll figure out that education you have isn’t necessarily

    cont.
    “comparing spiritual things with spiritual. BUT THE NATURAL MAN DOES NOT RECEIVE THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD, FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS TO HIM; nor can he know them, for they are spiritually discerned.”

    There is but one way to receive the Spirit, and that is by faith. As Jesus stated, just as the wind is invisible, so to is God. You cannot put Him into a lab so you can study Him, any more than you can put the wind into a lab. Just as you can only know the wind is real by it’s effect, the same is true of God. As you study His word, you can see who He is by the effect that He has, but it only comes through discernment, and discernment is a spiritual quality that you lack if you have not faith. I came to Him by faith, and am a completely different person today as a result. Hardly perfect, but better and improving. And it is the proof of the promise that He makes in Romans 12: 2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. To not think too highly of myself, nor to think too little of myself. That I should love others as I love myself; and how do I love myself? By living by noble, dignified principles, with honor and integrity, righteousness, truth and justice. Set these as your daily goals, and He will lead you if you lean on Him and trust in Him by His Spirit.

    @ Deanonrye and Moderation:

    “Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has God not made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For Jews seek a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; be we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness. But to those that are called , both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”

    “Yet we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not of the wisdom of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew.”
    But God has revealed them to us through the Spirit. For the spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of another man except the spirit of the man that is in him. Even so, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we may know the things that are freely given to us from God.
    “These things we also speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing sp

    They are criticized by some, but the press is promoting this cause in order to generate racial divisions in the country, with a purpose of promoting legislation to quell “gun” violence in America. The entire media frenzy the entire week has been over Trayvon and these protests, while
