    Judges/courts who demand “respect” and incarcerate those who don’t comply are just as wrong. That’s not respect. The public may comply but you’ll earn their contempt not their respect.

    I’m with Obbop on this one as well.

    If you force people to show “respect” then you’re a moron if you think that is respect.

    As long as they aren’t disrespectful then I don’t see a problem, and sitting peacefully is not disrespectful.

    I don’t think it is right to force children or adults to swear their allegiance to a country. Think about what it means to force someone to “swear their allegiance.”

    Nor do I think it is right for a government official to force a man to “show respect” by standing as a prerequisite to attend a public meeting. It’s kind of like a king forcing the public to get down on their knees — it’s only a difference of degree.

    I read the article and I’m at a loss.

    “[T]he Board concluded that [Dr. Green] had expressed agreement with a ‘christotelic’ hermeneutical method that severs the organic link between the Old Testament and the New Testament.”

    What does that even mean? Or what about the following?

    Brandon Withrow recapped some of Green’s ideas… “Green says that the Bible — and books in it like Genesis, for example — should be read in two ways: Firstly, read ‘Genesis on its own terms,’ as an ‘unfolding story,’ meaning, ‘as an Israelite book, and not (yet) a Christian book!’ The second way means letting ‘the Jesus-ending of Israel’s story reshape the way you interpret’ Genesis, which ‘is the way you read Genesis as a Christian book.’ His way of reading the Bible ‘creates a disunity between the human and divine authors,’ and is ‘inconsistent’ with their doctrinal standards.”

    Don’t have little kids shooting automatic weapons. This little girl will now grow up knowing she is responsible for a man’s death. A little boy, about the same age, in MA also died when firing an Uzi on automatic fire and ended up shooting himself in the head because of recoil.

    I grew up around guns. I was 13 and shooting guns on a target shooting team. I have two sons and two nephews who have grown up shooting guns. But use some freaking common sense. Little kids aren’t going to be able to handle the recoil of automatic weapons, so don’t have them shoot them (or you or themselves).

    I like the logo on the Kern County Sheriffs cars — “We’ll kick your *ss and take your donuts too”

    It seems to work for me, using Google Chrome as a browser on a Windows XP box.

    People on both sides need to use some common sense.

    Militant atheist need to get a grip and stop going after schools for kids saying “God bless you,” or valedictorians thanking god in their commencement speech, or Christmas plays with religious music, and similar cultural traditions and student led religious beliefs.

    On the other hand, religious proselytizers should not use schools as some kind of recruiting ground. They shouldn’t try to replace science based curriculums with faith based curriculums. They shouldn’t be trying to institute prayer in school. They shouldn’t load up a Christmas play with religious based themes. And so on.

    Last week I went to my niece and nephew’s open house school night (their mom couldn’t go so I went). There were posters and a booth announcing a “parents night out” that would be held at a local church. I’m an atheist, and my reaction was “That’s kind of cool. It is nice to see the community supporting schools, parents, and one another. It’s too bad that kind of thing isn’t allowed in larger communities.” I didn’t have some kind of meltdown because I saw something religious at the school. I don’t believe in God, but I’m in no way opposed to the religious beliefs of others or to the community at large.

    Lastly, I’ve noticed that lately the TheBlaze has had an influx a stories negatively portraying us God damned atheist. What’s up with that?

    You don’t even need God to know that people should be judged on their actions and not their words.

    I also believe that women in “abusive” relationships aren’t always the victims they are made out to be. Many of them instigate confrontations and give as well as they get.

    I’m with Dr. Vel. I used to make my own forts when I was a kid. When my boys were little they also made their own forts too. Cushions from the coach and a couple blankets when we were 4. Much cooler forts out of scrap wood and other improvised material — wooden spools for tables, a car’s back seat for a couch, and an electric panel used for a door.

    I guess I can just identify with a four-year-old getting his own secret room.

    @prov1, that really was just wrong, wrong, wrong — but I laughed anyway.

    I didn’t watch the video, but I have no doubt that the President should be launching some cruise missiles at ISIS.

    I think the President knows this too, but he has screwed the pooch with his earlier condemnation of Israel. If one of the President’s cruise missile happens to kill a civilian then he is no different than Israel. He is an idiot who has tied his own hands.

    Oh sweet, the nearest big city to me is Sacramento, and I’ll probably be using the Sac airport within the next two weeks.

    I love these stories too.

    Although, these parents might want to start saving college and not count on a scholarship.

    Why is the military just giving away it’s vehicles and equipment?

    I may get screwed over in Cali, but I’m still not moving to Mississippi no matter what you say.

    Begging the question is not sound logic.
