    @ 1FreeVoice
    So . . . about my supposed reading comprehension difficulties . . . I’m still waiting to hear from you to find out what I missed in the article.
    While your advice to “double check the story to be sure you didn’t miss or misunderstand something… before you hit “post”!” is certainly valid — I’m getting the idea that that is precisely what you failed to do.
    No, you are not a “hypocrite” — but the irony is palpable.

    My son is taking an AP course in “Human Geography”. Two nights ago, he was studying different age & sex demographics in various parts of the world. It really mad him sad when I told him that the reason little boys outnumbered little girls in China and India was because over there they kill some of the little girls before they are born.
    But THAT of course wouldn’t be called a “War on Women”, right?

    Sweden has almost TWICE the percentage of Muslims as the UK?
    Wow

    No, I am NOT going to read what a murderer wanted publicized as reward for his murder and SHAME ON THE BLAZE for publishing it!

    I was born in Boston and raised in its suburbs. It pains me when Boston and Bostonians get hurt in any way. But, yes — Bostonians are certainly culpable for their willful ignorance of the dangers of radical Islam.

    If someone thinks that “there’s nothing “common sense” about homosexuality being a wrong behavior”, then that someone has some learning to do about physiology.

    @ vision harry
    Sorry not to share your elation, but here is why:
    The ACLU (and the Human Rights Campaign and NAMBLA, etc.) have a strict policy of INCREMENTALISM. If a case is brought too soon, then they will lose and “bad” precedent will be established. A couple of homosexuals brought a federal lawsuit here in Utah several years ago trying to get a ruling that they had a “right” to be “married” — they were urged by homosexual leadership to voluntarily dismiss their case. Why? Because the homosexuals would have LOST several years ago and that would have been a problem for the litigation campaign being waged for homosexual “marriage.”
    Forcing ministers to “marry” homosexuals is not a case for THIS year — I expect it will be the big “civil rights” issue in 2018 or so.

    Sadly, “Boston Strong” only deals with resilience after being hit with terrorism.
    When it comes to having the political strength to PREVENT an attack, Boston needs to do some “working out.”

    @ Agent Decoy
    Media like extremes, the odd, the violent, the mysterious. If any adherent of Christianity is sort of “out there”, then it will be a focus of attention. I live in a community that is predominantly Christian, Bible-believing and church-going. The members of my community are not on the news for their faith practices.
    Now, think about the Westboro Baptist Church — THAT makes the news on a very consistent basis.
    There are, of course, a host of other factors that tend to drive the media’s interest in negative treatment of Christians.

    “I don’t need to be told that homosexuality is “wrong behavior,” ”
    Me either, Ripe — common sense easily carries that truism without me having to be told.

    @ 1FreeVoice & Karenshepard
    Yes: “the best way to counter these stereotypes to live the life Christ laid out for us.” — as far as we can as INDIVIDUALS counter the steroetypes
    Yes: “that what the article said”
    But, NO, 1FreeVoice, I again missed the part of the article that dealt with how the negative beliefs of Bible-believers is shaped by media and educational institutions. Maybe the article has been changed, but the closest that I can find is the word “part” in: “Bible-believers, themselves, bear part of the blame for the negative stereotypes that surround modern-day evangelicalism” — but the article seems (again, as I read it) to deal entirely with that “part.”

    Wow, lettuce, speaking of “evidence” — thanks for essentially PROVING the accuracy of my post!

  • [103] October 24, 2014 at 2:26pm

    Another point that Mr. Ford is missing:
    What people “believe” about Bible-believers says more about what people have been TOLD about Bible-believers (by biased media sources and biased presentations in schools) than it says about Bible-believers themselves.

    Typically, atheist activists will point to the “government” aspect of this, but the REAL ire that the atheists have is towards the PEOPLE who have faith in God.

    “too much salt”?
    Jon Stossel has noted that many studies show that only a minority of the population (like a one third, so it is not a small minority) are negatively impacted by the typical amount of salt consumed by Americans.

    Or, as it was written under the Blaze headline in the list of stories:
    “Muicthatmakesyoudumb” — yeah, they left out an “s”

    “Are halberds considered hatchets?”

    And from the Department of Redundancy Department, we have:
    “two rusted, corroded rifles also were found”
    Rust, of course, is the corrosion of iron or steel.
    (Also, rust never sleeps.)

    Yup, I noticed the absence of Mozart as well.
    Also noticed by their absence:
    Talking Heads
    Rush
    Jethro Tull
