    I was thinking the same thing, Bolton. Thor and Beck are such good buddies, this smacks more of Brad doing some dirty work of Glenn. It’s a shame, really. I know we conservatives love to bash the liberal actors and singers who try to get their noses into politics and issues, because we pay them simply to entertain us. The same could be said for fiction authors; we buy your books to be entertained, not to tell us how you believe or what to believe. You have political opinions? Great, so do I. Yours are no more special than mine. Get over it.

    You freaks have still yet to figure out what Trumps appeal is, and that, Glenn, Brad, is sad.

    Benghazi — 12, so yeah, 21 total for murder. (Though they may also have been talking about those critics of hers that have died suspiciously.)

    If you add up all the synonyms of “liar,” and “untrustworthy,” including “politician” and “bitch,” a full third of the respondents have extremely negative first-word association with this woman. Add in “Benghazi,” “unqualified,” “scandal,” “sneaky,” and “liberal,” you have over 600 of the 1563 that Clinton has disenfranchised.

    That’s not to mention the 500 they left out of the reporting due to the answers adding up to less than five apiece. Interesting, eh?

    I’m not sure where you got that he was condemning the guy to hell. That’s a bit far-fetched from what he actually said.

  • August 26, 2015 at 2:16pm

    Still seems like he’s enjoying the press, in some weird way. At least he’s in the spotlight still, right? Even negative attention is attention.

    The higher the climb, the more damaging the fall. As I stated above, his wife’s affair could be because he lost sight of the truly important things a while ago. When he mentioned how he lost everything, he didn’t mention his family.

  • [7] August 26, 2015 at 2:00pm

    Nope. He has disqualified himself from the pastorate. Not that that will stop some fool church from bringing him in at some point in the future.

  • [4] August 26, 2015 at 1:59pm

    I agree. It appears he lost sight of the important things a long time ago. Hence why his wife may have been driven to find comfort elsewhere (not that it was right for her to do so). Now that he’s lost everything, what wouldn’t he do to get it back?

    The answer is right in the story:
    “Tchividjian, who said that he is “swimming in the sea” of his consequences, is hoping to let people see his profound brokenness, as he journeys through the recovery process.”

    He’s going to ride it out hoping to get another book deal, or more speaking engagements where he can tell people how profoundly this has affected him. It’s pretty clear where his priorities still are.

    Funny, zap, never thought I’d be agreeing with you on a religious article.

    Want to know the real problem here? The words “celebrity” and “pastor” should not be used to describe one another. If you are a celebrity, people are looking to you and following you. If you are a pastor, you are supposed to be leading a flock while they look past you to Christ. Too many churches fall into the “cult of personality,” and the people begin following a man, instead of following the God according to the Bible. Too many pastors in this situation take their eyes off Christ and begin to look at themselves as something special, and have to learn the hard way that “I’m far worse than I ever thought I was…”

    I, too, once had a pastor that lost his way. He began to believe that he was the reason the church was doing so well, instead of realizing it was the Lord. He ended up having an affair with the youth pastor’s wife. It did not just split the church, it exploded the church. Members ended up everywhere. Let’s place the blame where it needs to be; squarely on the shoulders of pride.

    1 John 2:16 “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

    Want to find a home for it? Put it somewhere where it will be appreciated. Maybe back in the school in an art room. There, it’s “just” another piece of art, and cannot be construed to have any endorsement on the content.

    Why, yes it is anti-gay. How can you start a colony without procreation? The root of “colony” is not “colon” people.

  • [12] August 26, 2015 at 9:16am

    Sad that that is a “commendable” action on this site.

  • [26] August 26, 2015 at 9:08am

    In al seriousness, though, prayers for their families. This is a tragedy for all involved.

    Quick, everyone jump to conclusions! Start blaming guns, or the mentally ill. If we don’t, somebody else will. Come on, let’s get the ball rolling!

    Oh, the costs would be astronomical. I’m just saying I think it’s doable. I think it’s cost-prohibitive for the government to be doing it right now, because they have too much debt, but a few privately owned firms could spend the money, if they wanted to.

  • [4] August 25, 2015 at 9:32am

    I bet it’s doable today, with current technology. It really wouldn’t be hard to do. Send all the building supplies ahead of time. Some building supplies. Some excavation equipment. A few habitats with air locks. They could send them out and land them with parachutes just like they do the rovers. Once enough of them have gone, send out four couples (men and women) to start the first colony. Sure, the trip over would be boring, but it would be doable.

    Read the Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. While some of it is far-fetched, much of it is grounded in actual science, and with some good funding, it could become reality. There is water on Mars; they know that. There is also permafrost, which can be melted down for crop production. Send up a few dozen bags of topsoil, about twenty thousand red wrigglers, and some chickens to start. Continually mix in the martian soil with the topsoil, food waste, and worms, and you’ll be able to run a fully functioning garden in no time.

    He could also dig a well and have it piped directly into the house. Even if the world burned for a week he’d still be able to subsist.

    @ Halestorm — I did not say that it wasn’t murder. I said that it was unlikely to get a murder charge. I hate abortion, but it is a legal practice, so aborting a child in the legal way does not carry charges with it. Sad, but true.

    @ Noblabla — If I was on the street without a heart beat, I’m assuming you would help me, because you seem to be so compassionate. If you read my initial response, you will see that I am by no means defending what happened. I said that I think the child could have been resuscitated, but they were under no legal obligation to do so. What they did was sick, by basically “playing” with the corpse of a child.

    Thank you all for not really reading my post, and instead accusing me of being some kind of heartless *****. It amazes me the knee-jerk reactions some of you have.

    We’ll tell you how to be patriotic. We’ll tell you how to express yourself. We’ll let you know what is an acceptable use of your freedoms.

    Yeah, I like where this is heading. (/sarcasm off)
