    Thanks for the info.

    My conclusion is that by requiring religious symbols to erased from public lands, even though they may have been there for a long time and are therefore considered ‘historical’, (which symbols should also include images of the sun, moon, constellations, etc), they are requiring the government to conform to their religious ideals – the religion of non-religion.

    It would be an interesting decision if the courts ruled that atheism is indeed a religion.

    Some people don’t take the stance of ‘you’re the Left (or Right) and I’m not, so whatever you say, think, or feel is wrong.’

    We all know someone who has suffered due to cancer, etc…

    It’s a dilemma to be sure.

    When it comes to breaking down barriers, be it medically ending an unborn’s life for convenience’s sake, allowing same gender marriage, allowing said partners the ability to adopt, or ending life prematurely to alleviate pain, I prefer to leave those barriers up regardless of the pressure exerted by popular opinion.

    Again, I can understand the arguments for doing such things, but I do not approve. Perhaps my tune will change when it’s my turn. Tough question.

    I believe all women should carry, whether they are manly or not.

    People have committed suicide, a point I concede. I’m sure they always will, but as I said, it’s tragic.

    There are also those who have had to decide whether or not to ‘pull the plug’ on a loved one.

    There are also those who have a ‘living will’ which tells the medical staff not to keep them alive if there is no chance for recovery.

    All of these are heart wrenching decisions.

    None of the above arguments sway me to legalize assisted suicide.

    As far as the religious comment goes, those that believe in Jesus (good) also believe in a devil (evil). We would submit that, notwithstanding mental illness, self protection, or war, anyone who decides to willingly take their own life, or the life of another is under the influence of evil.

    There are drugs to alleviate the pain.

    I have no idea what your comment means.

    Many people have committed suicide, and it’s seen as a tragedy.

    Many people suffer from mental illnesses that cause them to harm or mutilate themselves. Again, this is tragic.

    Even so, I still don’t see your point

    Religion supports the idea that only God creates life, and only God can take it away.

    I promise you that my thinking is autonomous.

    I always liked Bob Dylan’s song “You Gotta Serve Somebody”. I’m always amused when I find a ‘free-thinker’ who acts the same as a ‘free-thinker’ I met the week before, yet both see each themselves as unique!

    So many religions…so little time.

    Some people tire of seeking the truth and simply give up, preferring to call those who still seek ‘idiots’ and putting their trust in the latest NYT bestselling author or some other human who promises happiness if they will follow certain principles – these principles are usually music to itchy ears and are therefore easy to believe.

    You really do have a utopian view of society, culture and civilization.

    I don’t want to fund abortions, but I am forced to.

    Many are forced to participate in ‘providing for the poor’ through taxes, which is an altruistic act that they may support.

    I could continue, but I think you get the point…not everyone believes in the same causes as you do, so why should they be forced to participate?

  • August 12, 2015 at 8:45pm

    I’ll agree with that assessment.

    Lodi IS dynamic, gender is not.

    They don’t deny it, they’re proud of it!
    I used to visit there to participate in their conversation…their mild responses would make even the vilest Blaze commenter blush.
    They are so completely open about their progressivism and unabashed in their zeal to promote any sort of deviant behavior that I felt as if I needed to take an acid bath just to remote the filth.

    Hello Monk,

    im sure he has a great game plan for his campaign…and I’m sure he’ll be capable of pulling it off. He doesn’t strike me as someone who just wings it. It’s going to be a 15 round bout, and he’s ready.

    Though I am not a Trump fan, I’ve got to admit…he speaks his mind and has the cajones to not care who doesn’t like it!

    I’m no fan of Hillary’s, but does anyone else thinks it’s ironic that the source of this story of her mishandling of classified material is someone who is not authorized to speak about it?

    “you don’t hear any of the other candidates or what they stand for as much as you hear about the Donald”
    True statement…however, I would add: we don’t even know what Trump stands for.
    If it wasn’t for his antics, or his carrying on about how he is not being treat fairly, we a) would here more about the other candidates, and b) here less about Donald.
    In all the talk about his leading in the polls is this fact…there are just as many likely voters who would NOT vote for Trump as there are that would vote for him. In other words, his unfavorability rating is as high as his favorability rating.
