    As a practicing Pasafarian, this ruling took the starch out of me…

    Hate begets hate in the Middle East. It has been passed on through generations, and unfortunately will never end until one side or another is annihilated. The Jewish people are surrounded and the Obama administration appears to have no time or inclination to support them. These developments will likely progress to a full-blown Middle Eastern war. I certainly hope that Iran doesn’t become directly involved, although Iranian insurgents are likely already throwing money, military hardware and personnel into the mix. God bless the Jewish people…

    Mental diseases are sometimes treatable, but last time I checked there was no cure for stupid. Oh, What a Town Chicago Is!!! Sing it with me now…

    Dear Blaze Typesetters,
    Are you serious with changing the font just to get the umlauts over that U? Dusseldorf would have been acceptable. Don’t you have a style book? Just sayin…

    Really, I mean, can I just throw out one statistic… Anyone who bothers to give Michael what’s his fat any attention is an idiot. And no, I didn’t watch the video. Move on, nothing to see here.

    b-o-r-i-n-g. Don’t care about your stupid religious propaganda.

  • June 13, 2011 at 12:21pm

    Sorry, no. Let’s tell the truth. He is just one of millions of religious charlatans that people around the world are stupid enough to listen to. They deserve everything they get. Maybe one day some of those whose thinking hasn’t progressed beyond the stone age, when lightning and strong winds was proof of the fury of “god”, will wake up. Religious types have be preying on the weak since the dawn of man. Get a clue.

    Bottom line, just another example of hate and intolerance. Religious bigotry is as old as religion, and will never, ever stop. Words, even hateful words, are one thing. Violence, killing, and purposeful destruction of others’ property are another matter. This man and his family are seemingly minding their own business and living their own lives, peacefully.

    If all people would simply follow the golden rule, the world would be a much better place. No religion need be involved in this argument. Just stay out of other peoples’ business, period.

    I hope the perpetrators of this crime are caught and prosecuted. They deserve no less than a very strong lesson in basic human respect.

    I live about 5 miles from the former touchdown jesus location. I just couldn’t help it… every time I passed by, it would just come into my head naturally…

    I Don’t Care if It
    Rains or Freezes
    As Long as I Got My
    Plastic Jesus
    Ridin’ on the Dashboard
    Of My Car
    Through My Trials
    And Tribulations
    And My Travels
    Through the Nation
    With My Plastic Jesus
    I’ll Go Far

    Chorus
    With My Plastic Jesus
    Goodbye and I’ll Go Far
    I Said With My Plastic Jesus
    Sitting on the Dashboard of My Car

    Ridin’ Down the Thoroughfare
    With a Nose Up in the Air
    A Wreck May Be Ahead
    But He Don’t Mind
    Trouble Comin’
    He Don’t See
    He Just Keeps His Eye on Me
    And Any Other Thing That Lies Behind

    (Repeat Chorus)

    When I’m in a Traffic Jam
    He Don’t Care if I Say D*mn
    I Can Let All My Curses Roll
    ‘Cos Jesus’ Plastico Doesn’t Hear
    ‘Cos He’s Got a Plastic Ear
    The Man Who Invented Plastic
    Saved My Soul

    (Repeat Chorus)

    And if I Weave Around at Night
    Policemen Think I’m Very Tired
    They Never Find My Bottle
    Though They Ask
    ‘Cos Plastic Jesus Shelters Me
    For His Head Comes Off You See
    He’s Hollow and I Use Him Like a Flask

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I Don’t Care if It’s Dark or Scary
    Long as I Got Magnetic Mary
    Ridin’ on the Dashboard of My Car
    I Feel That I’m Protected Amply
    I’ve Got the Love of the Whole D*mn Family
    Ridin’ on the Dashboard of My Car

    (Repeat Chorus)

    When I’m Goin’ Fornicatin’
    I’ve Got My Ceramic Satan
    Sittin’ on the Dashboard of My Car
    Women Know I’m on the Level
    Thanks to the Wide-Eyed Stoneware Devil
    Sneerin’ From the Dashboard of My Car

    (Repeat Chorus)

    It will be great to be able to hear that refrain once again in my head!

    Look, you’re not getting it. I don’t want a religious discussion here. IT DOESN”T BELONG IN THIS FORUM, that’s my point. I came here to read NEWS, not to go to church. I don’t care about your god or gods. Please don’t make me dodge through your inane bible verses and comments to read news and enjoy sane people’s commentary. I’ve spent enough valuable time asking (I think politely) to just take the church/god drivel elsewhere. I bear no ill will, it is a simple thing that I ask. Don’t be unreasonable— you take offense far too easily.

    “First I would logically work from the existence of God, which must be assmued from the start because it can’t be proved, to the premise that if Giod exists it is logical that he would want us to know him, since he have obviously been created with a dominant religious sensibility.”
    ______________________________________________________________________________

    It didn’t take your premise long to fall apart. You start out “logically” assuming the existence of god. Sorry, don’t buy that. Since your whole discussion is built on that idea being a given, that is the end of discussion as far as I’m concerned.

  • March 26, 2011 at 7:19pm

    You are correct, I don’t have to be here and I don’t have to read the commentary that I find offensive, and trust me, I don’t. However, I don’t think it unfair or demanding that I should come to a news website and read a news article and entertain some intellectual discussion without being bombarded by blather and dogma from religious loonies who think they have all the answers for what ails my soul, and wow(!) it’s THEIR religion. No, I don’t read it word for word, but it is offensive to me to have to scour through the gospel to get others’ insight on national and world events. This is a news site after all, isn’t it? It isn’t church. I firmly believe in freedom of speech, but there is a time and a place for everything. Just cut the holy scripture quotations and inane commentary, and I think more people would find this a better place to exchange ideas. If this doesn’t make sense to you, wise up.

    And BTW, don’t assume. I am neither a liberal, a progressive or a democrat. I am a Libertarian who leans strongly towards conservative values. I just don’t need a god to do so.

    Just because you capitalize words doesn’t make them true. I don’t believe in prophesy because I don’t believe in magic.

    Chris Hitchens isn’t blogging here.

  • March 26, 2011 at 4:38pm

    Firstly, let me say that I wish Chris Hitchens the best. He possesses marvelous intellect and is a very skilled writer and debater. I enjoy listening to him very much, and will miss him immensely if if does not win this seemingly uphill battle.

    I think it is wonderful that Hitch has found someone who may be able to help him. He is certainly in terrible straits, and for that I am sad. I do not think that Hitch looks on Dr Collins as an evil man because he is a Christian; they are friends after all. Collins is simply a very talented individual who has developed great healing skills because of his devotion to the art of science and medicine, and Hitch is in great need of those skills at this time in his life.

    The problem that I have when articles with even the remotest intonation of religious component appear here on the Blaze, is that the discussion always seem to devolve into a topic of good vs evil, which is what this particular commentary has done. And the answer from many who post here is always that the perceived ‘evil ’ individual or group needs to find the religious dogma of those who know best for everyone. (Where DO you come up with some of this stuff, have you no life?) The most offensive to me are those who quote their scripture, as if it may have some intrinsic value to me or anyone else. Must you impose your selfishness over your personal beliefs to try to persuade others that you know best? Or, are you simply trying to reinforce your own self-doubt? And I’m sorry, but Christians seem to be the worst offenders. Please, go to church and argue dogma, don’t do it here in a public forum. It is very offensive.

    As stated here perviously, I am an atheist. I have reasons for my beliefs, as I am sure all people with various religions do. However, I do not attempt to persuade you into atheism. I think that my beliefs are personal. They have come to me through years of evaluation and exploration while exposing myself to diverse religious beliefs approached with reasoned thought and research. In other words, I’ve read more than one ‘holy’ scripture. Yet there are those who will say there is only one for whatever imagined reason.

    That said, I am more than the sum of my atheism. I am a good, moral person and live a full and rich life. I don’t lie, cheat, or steal, drink or smoke (anything), just because it’s the way I choose to live. I happen to believe that the simple Golden Rule is just a good, common sense approach to life. I am no more evil than you, even though you may be a Christian, Buddhist, Catholic, Muslim, etc. I just don’t believe in (or hate, as one poster put it!) your ‘God’ whomever or wherever he/she/it is, or was. Maybe in your mind that makes me evil; so be it. That’s your problem.

    And just food for thought for everyone: of the literally thousands of religions in the world today, and in the past, what exactly makes YOUR ‘God’ the omnipotent? This is a question just for YOU. Don’t bother quoting your scripture here to me from your chosen tome to offer proof, you’ll just be arguing in circles. That is not a question put forth in an evil or mocking way; I’m sure that some who are tied to a religion to the exclusion of many other things in life will take it so.

    Please keep your religion to yourself… and thanks, but no, I, like Chris Hitchens, don’t need or desire your prayers. We have chosen our path, and are at peace, if you care. Some may not buy that, but again, that’s your issue to deal with. Peace be with you…

    Absolutely untrue. There are many atheists who have not “repented” when at the end of their lives. Carl Segan comes immediately to mind.

  • March 25, 2011 at 1:27pm

    Do you have pictures you could share? I would like to see Jesus. He must be getting up there in years…

  • March 25, 2011 at 11:45am

    And you divined this how…?

  • March 25, 2011 at 11:38am

    Professors will use him; he’ll use them. He’ll miss his childhood and “grow up” to be a neurotic nerd. Pressure in his life will be endless. I cannot see this kid as a happy man in the future, sad to say. I wish him the best…
