Not any more. They changed the rules so that biological males can compete as females as long as their testosterone levels are below a certain point for 12 months before the Olympic trials begin. It won’t affect the Rio Olympics, but it will affect all of the Olympics going forward.
Up until they changed the rules, I used that argument too. :-/

Including the Olympics. They recently changed the rules, so I believe as of the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, guys can compete against the female athletes. So except for in the artistic sports, biological females can forget ever winning an Olympic medal. Sucks to be a speed skater, skiier, etc.

I was a delegate today. I am hardly party-controlled. I never even registered Republican until early December… I was registered Constitution Party before that. I only registered Republican because one of our local politicians talked to me and convinced me to run for the delegate position.
I chose the bound delegates that I wanted today. I had personally spoken to at least four of the six people that I voted for.. and the other two that I voted for were running with the four that I had talked to. There was nothing stolen that I could see.
So you've only been a Republican for a few months and now you're casting votes on OUR behalf? You're not controlled by the party but a local politician convinced you to be a delegate? It's people like you that will make me #neverCruz.

Coloradans did get a say. It just wasn’t explained very well.
We all had the chance to go to our precinct caucus on March 1st. We chose delegates to go to the county, district, and state assemblies. What should have been explained, and wasn’t, at least in my precinct, was that the national delegates from our state would be chosen at the district and state level. In my precinct, the only people that were asked which candidate they supported were those that wanted to go to state.
I went to the district assembly today. I voted for the national delegates of my choice. The people in my precinct didn’t have to send me. If they would have asked me on March 1st, I would have told them that I would choose whoever I think was strongest for Cruz (they didn’t). No, *I* wouldn’t have been bound, but I did vote for bound delegates today. So although the process was confusing, we did get to pick our representatives.

One of the guys running for national delegate today (from Colorado Congressional District 5) said that he didn’t care if his hotel room was given out or not, he wouldn’t give into bullies and was voting Cruz.

If you live in New York, at least. I’d be really surprised if I found out that a subway ran underneath my house in Colorado Springs though.

I find this strange in more than one way.
My husband met her, last summer, I think. I guess that people can portray themselves in any way that they want, but it’s still a little strange.
On the other hand, if pastor Saeed didn’t really believe in what he was saying, then it would have been very easy for him to just deny everything that he claimed to believe in and go along with whatever they wanted him to believe in, just for survival’s sake. Obviously, we all make mistakes, even if we believe in God, but it’s all very strange.
I suppose that the entire truth will come out eventually.

I look at it this way: if God wants me to win the lottery, he will provide me with a ticket.
Proverbs 10:22 states “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” Most lottery winners end up worse off than they were before they win the lottery. If God provides me with a winning lottery ticket, the money I receive would be a blessing and not a curse.
The odds of winning the lottery are astronomical in the first place. How much more difficult would it be for God to cause someone to drop the winning ticket on the ground, have me find it, and I pick it up?
I actually did win $10 from the lottery last month, as I was given a ticket. I gave half of my winnings to missions.

Not everybody who is overweight eats a lot of sweets. As an example, I haven’t had sweets, sweet drinks, or unhealthy snacks since May, with the exception of 7 times (my birthday, my daughter’s birthday, Mother’s day, Independence Day, Disneyland’s birthday, first day of school, and Back to the Future Day). The candy that this lady took in one day is less than I’ve had in six months.
In her case, I think that she might just be eating too much candy. Or at least too much candy that she isn’t paying for herself. I doubt she’s giving it all away to charity.
You're probably right, but at the end of the day who cares about her weight? The real issue here is character, honesty and integrity. What sort of children is she rearing? If one cannot be trusted when no one is looking (and she obviously thought no one was), then one cannot be trusted at all. The only major difference between someone like this and those in prison is, she hasn't been caught...sort of.

Going to see all of the movies in the theater today!
I don’t know if I saw any of them in the theaters originally. Maybe the second two.
Who would have thought we would have ended up with the future that we do have? Islamic terrorism, the world on the verge of war, not enough good jobs to go around… it’s almost like the nightmare version of 1985.
I saw the first one in NY, the second in Heilbronn, Germany, and the third in Anniston, AL. It was Hoot each time. Doc Brown was still Jim from Taxi to me and especially in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, his performance was a Klingon version of Jim.
keep an eye out for them switching "Jennifer" actresses at the beginning of part 2.

If I ever have to leave the house quickly, I’ll grab my hard drive. That’ll cover all of my pictures since my daughter was born. Although I do have copies of many of these pictures, stored in a liberty safe over 1000 miles away… but it will also cover a lot of my work.
Concerning your diet dog food comment.
Watch any old news reel, or old footage from the 50's and below of large gatherings of people. Spotting obese people is like trying to find Waldo.
Processed foods are killing us. Our bodies were not 'designed' to process foods void of natural vitamins, and full of man made chemicals, and preservatives.
Gurrl …… you be waitin too long n you is gonna have a hard drive …fo sho!
A hard drive in yo ride thru all dat water!
Guns, ammo , bourbon, and cigarettes is all you need.

I wonder if diet dog food is as full of crap as diet people food.
The only diet food for humans worth eating is… fruits and vegetables.

We have a second bank account for just that reason.
If a thief has access to our debit card, they can’t take all of our money. At the moment, they can take $40. They won’t take the rent money.
We could then easily close that particular account and the bank will refund us our $40.

We could turn to my son’s fourth-grade textbook for some clarification (although it’s a Christian textbook, so maybe that doesn’t count).
A butterfly’s life-cycle is described as having several phases: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. It’s not a different species as an egg… it’s still a butterfly. Same with humans.
I don’t really care if he wants to grow out his hair and have everybody call him Princess… it’s a free country.
However, assuming that he has normal genetics, his chromosomes say XY. I’ve always been taught that your genetic makeup determines your gender… not your name, not the way you dress, not even your hormones or whatever body parts you have on you.
I’ll gladly call Corey a she when he gets his genes changes to XX.
Gender is determined by Chromosomes, period!
HE is a boy and will always be a boy and making a drug addict out of him by letting him take anti-nature dope the rest of his life doesn't change it.

I haven’t seen any of those vile comments that you’ve mentioned here…
All I’ve been seeing is comments like “I’m an atheist but I love this pope” or “the Pope is teaching Christians how they should behave” (also from a non-religious type).
My response to these two comments has been… if atheists like this pope, then he must be doing something wrong, and… since he is ignoring the teachings of 2 Timothy 4:2 (always preaching the word whether in season or out of season) then he is not showing Christians how they should behave. Now, I don’t think that you necessarily have to be preaching the gospel 24/7, but if you are seen by many as “the world’s religious leader” and you are invited to speak in a prestigious place, don’t you think you’d at least mention Jesus’s name, at least in passing?
To me, this guy seems more like the person that 2 Timothy 4:3-4 warns us against… the kind that preaches when the majority of people can’t endure sound doctrine, and tell the people what they want to hear.
I don’t have anything against the guy… and I see him as just a guy… not anybody special. He might even be a nice guy. Out of all the people on earth, does he live Biblical principles more than anybody else on this planet? Not even close.
Perhaps you haven't looked at many of the stories on this site while the Pope was here. Many posters were quite proud of Catholic bashing and used the exact word, bashing.
I could easily cut and past several but I won't. I do try to forgive the ones who are extremely hateful, try to focus on what all Christians have in common, and try not to attack back. I sometimes fail at this but I do try.
Read any damn story on the Blaze about the Pope and just about every comment is “communist, Marxist, progressive, pos, trash, leftist, etc..” not only do “Christian conservatives” here attack the Pope, but they attack all catholics as if we are all leftist liberals. And yes he lives biblical principles dedicating his time to prayer and the poor. I’ve never seen or heard of trump getting his hands dirty and going to the homeless, the sick, and imprisoned, yet he is worshiped by many among us.
“I haven’t seen any of those vile comments that you’ve mentioned here…”
Do you not read the comments on the stories about the pope on this website? I had someone the other day compare him to Hitler. “Hyperbolic” would be an understatement for much of the vitriol spewed at the man from this site.
“if atheists like this pope, then he must be doing something wrong”
I’m an atheist and I like plenty of things that Christians like. Does that mean that all of those are now wrong?
Then why apply such a standard to the pope?
Your view here is simply “being contrary is good.” No… it’s being contrary. “Good” is not determined simply by saying “No” when someone else says “yes.” It depends on what the topic is. Use reasoning, not knee-jerks.
My approval of the pope is muted, to say the least. I disapprove of most of his social positions. I think his economic positions are unfeasible. And his theology is groundless and irrational. There’s not much I approve of, really.
But there is some. I approve of his demeanor. I approve of him bringing people together. I approve of the way he acts toward others.
That is to say, I approve of his character, or at least how he portrays it. That doesn’t mean I’ll approve of what he’s saying or preaching, but I think that he’s a person trying to make the world a better place. That’s admirable, and more than I can say for most politicians or political commentators today.
And more than many people who post here making vile comments.
The Pope is our enemy for the simple reason that he is advocating that Europe and the USA take in millions of Muslim jihadis, and for the USA to take in even more immigrants and refugees than we already do which is well over one million per year. How dare he advocate bringing the Muslim wolves to prey on his Christian flock. The Pope sounds just like Obama most of the time. Let the Vatican take in 10,000 Muslims or shut his mouth about it.
Do you remember when mother Theresa came during Clinton adm. Speak spoke directly about abortion. A lot of good that
Did. The pope did not come to preach to our congress. About our laws. We all know what the church doctrine is about abortion and gay marriage. His message was to respect LIFE I all development. If you listened to Francis's talk to the religious comm. you would have heard plenty of Jesus and God the Father. WE are going to be held accountable to God, we in America, for putting in place pro abortion leaders. You see it really does matter what a politician believes about life and the natural laws of God. We are the ones who should preach to our leaders.
could not agree more. Why is walsh taking up for the popes action or inactions? He IS a liberal
Hes for big government
hes talked out against capitalism
he is a lap dog for every Obama talking point there is
he avoided speaking about abortion and took a stance on lecturing the American people about being more compassionate to immigrants when we take in more immigrants and care for them than all the other countries in the world combined.
he talked about nothing but left wing talking points like global warming when there are things going on that NEEDED a moral compass that he just...left out of the speech.
Left wing liberal. Just a man...not a Deity. ANY man...is a sinner...including the pope. To say he is above being part of a plan to spread left wing propaganda is ridiculous. Where he is from, Argentina, this is all he knows. Why WOULDNT he be for it?
Walsh, not sure of your angle. But my eye is on you now buddy. Lost a lot of cred on this BS endorsement.
He seems to be a prince of a guy but in reality he is not teaching people how to be born again in the bible way and is only a religionist as are many others. Jesus died and was buried and rose again to pay for the sins of ALL past, present and future and all those who believe that need not go through the pain of trying to pay for their own sins only as stated in Romans 10 if you believe those things simply ask Jesus to save you and he will give you His Holy Spirit so you can live forever. Don't get caught up on people no matter who others say they are. if some one says the pope is more than an ordinary human and a sinner like all of us tell them to produce proof honestly from the Bible.The first and foremost proof of the popes humanity and the fact the fact he is a sinner like all of us is the fact that he is mortal and will die.Perfect men without sin don't die like Jesus and He chose to die but rose again.Jesus came to save us through his grace and because he loves us as in John 3;16 and he is the only way. Living like Jesus is a good thing but unless you are born again you will never see the Kingdom of Heaven.
We live in a world and a time when "subtle" doesn't quite work.
Subtle would have worked prior to 1963 - most had at least a rudimentary understanding of God & the Bible.
After 1963 - subtle no longer works.
2 generations deprived of the Biblical roots and the Classical Education that framed our founders.

The pope is either the false prophet or the anti christ
He seeks interfaith What does the scriptures say (2 Cor 6:14-18)
He seeks to unite and make peace What did Jesus say (Matt 10:34, Luke 12:51, Luke 12:49)
He says the cross was a failure but what do scriptures say? You find the verses and in your comment to my post, you post them
I have...and plenty.
Here is the deal, as stated in the article: The Pope, though a lose picking and choice of words, is attempting to appeal any and all crowds.
All of his speeches afford the listener the choice to hear the choiced words that appeal to them.
The Leftists embrace this like they would the words in a weekly horoscope.
What Liberals hear: immigration!!!
What the Pope said: Stop human smuggling, slavery and se x trafficking, arms and drug smuggling. Immigration should be humane, safe and dignified. (Close the borders, enforce immigration)
What Liberals hear: Climate Change!!!!
What the Pope really said: Be good shepherds of our environment. Take action and share technologies but not at the detriment of the poor. (We need energy to run water and sewer systems for the poor to stop the 11.9 million deaths each year. Greens are stopping this)
What Liberals hear: Capitalism and greedy people are bad!!!
What the Pope said: Governments and those in power who only make decisions based on their desire for power and greed over others must change.
What the Liberals hear:......crickets......
What the Pope said: Value life at all stages.
Leftists have embraced the Pope as one of their own. This has induced a knee jerk reaction from all other groups. Most of us know better.
Brooke, you're right about what the pope is saying (or not saying, in this case). This man accepts titles like vicar of Christ and holy father which are reserved for God and never speaks the gospel. Lost people need to hear the Good News and not how we need to help the environment and be nice to one another. Everyone who heard him speak that doesn't know Christ is in the same position they were before he came and spoke. A friend of the world is enmity with Christ. Leaving the church and being saved was the biggest blessing of my life. I pray for all who are left in that false religion.
