    This author is absolutely correct. If you ask many non-believers what Christians stand for most will say Christians are against abortion and gay marriage and that’s about it because when they see Christians on the news that’s what they’re concerned with. The lost battle against gay marriage should make Christians realize that they can’t get laws passed in America by just quoting the Bible. While 80% of Americans say they’re Christians only about a 1/3 of them are really serious Christians (and attend church regularly). Like the Republican Party Christians will need to explain what they’re for instead of just what they’re against.

    Nice idea but they don’t target a lot of movies to devout Christians because you’re not that large a segment of the population (20-25%) and you usually don’t go to movies anyway. “Heaven is Real” and “God’s Not Dead” both made $50 million or so which isn’t bad but a super hero movie make hundreds of millions of dollars (or $1.5 billion for the Avengers). Which movie would you bankroll if you’re a movie exec?

    I’m pro- choice but I don’t think the government should require companies to pay for abortions with their employee health insurance. But I’m sure most health insurance companies would rather pay a few hundred bucks for an abortion then thousands for a childbirth. My insurance company sure didn’t have a problem paying for an elective vasectomy.

    I don’t know if I would use the term “doesn’t work” for the Leave it to Beaver type family but the stay at home mom is a lot more rare these days. Most households need two incomes to support the family not a lot of jobs pay well enough for a single breadwinner these days.

    I understand you want to use a lead bullet for self-defense since the soft metal mushrooms on impact to make a bigger hole in the bad guy but wouldn’t using a non-lead bullet be ok for just target shooting at an indoor range? Maybe indoor ranges could only sell non-lead bullets for use on their range elimate any lead poisoning problems. Just a thought.

    The chapel owner’s lawyers may try to use the Hobby Lobby case for precedent but I’m not sure if they’ll be able to do it successfully. Hobby Lobby didn’t ban gays from buying stuff from their stores they just didn’t want to cover some birth control methods in their insurance plan. There is no law granting people the right to discriminate against gays for religious reasons. The AZ legislature tried to pass a law like that recently but faced such a backlash (and the NFL threatened to move the Super Bowl) that our Republican Governor vetoed the bill.

    Our school system is in a very conservative town (I don’t know if we’ve ever had a Democrat on the town council) but our school calender has always (and I’ve had kids in school for 8 years) called it “Winter Break”. Which is a good neutral term since somebody’s apparently going to get upset if you call it Christmas Break or Holiday Break. But not many people hate winter.

    My kids’s school has always called it “Winter Break” which is smart since it avoids the whole silly Christmas/Holiday controversy completely.

    I’d vote for Palin just for the fun keg parties she would throw at the White House.

    I’m sure some women will vote for Hillary because she’s a woman but most will probably vote for Hillary because the Republicans will either nominate some rightwing loon like Ted Cruz or a moderate like Christy who will be forced to go so far to the right to win the nomination (see Romney 2012) that he might as will be a right wing loon by the general election. As long as the GOP keeps trying to ban abortion (now they’re trying to give fetuses legal rights which would not only outlaw abortion but the morning after bill and maybe birth control pills too) and try to keep women from getting birth control covered by insurance, and opposing equal pay laws they’re going to keep losing the female vote with or without Hillary.

    Reagan was elected when he was 70 so Republicans can’t really play the “she’s too old” card.

    I’m not really afraid of any of the stuff on that list- I go walking with my dog every night, I have a secure job that I kept through the Great Recession, Phoenix is pretty much disaster free, and I’m not afraid of being shot by a random nutcase. Oh I am kind of afraid of heights though.

    I’m hardly conservative (ask anyone here) but I agree with you. Righties always harp on the Mexican border no matter what the topic (Ebola, terrorism, etc) because they don’t like Mexicans.

    Or just put live ammo in the Honor Guard’s rifles.

  • October 22, 2014 at 3:54pm

    Well they’ll probably let even ceremonail guards carry live ammo (reports are said the guard at the war memorial carried an unloaded rifle) and put more security at the Parliament Building. But I doubt they’ll pass a Canadan version of the Patriot Act. Canadians usually don’t get hysterical about much except hockey.

    Nothing vile about two hot chicks getting down with each other.

    Yes there were no terrorist attacks at all under Bush right?

    Just yesterday I was mocked for saying that the US has more to fear from terrorists crossing the Canadian border then the Mexican border. The Canadian border is longer, much less patrolled by the Border Patrol, and Canadian immigration standards are much looser then the US or Mexico (Canada encourages immigration because of their low population 30 million people in a country bigger then the US). You can all apologize to me now.

    Shotguns and rifles are legal in Canada but handguns are restricted (or banned). A friend drove to Canada and had to leave his pistol at the border when he went accross. So our gun laws are not the same.
