are you a troll pretending to be a conservative? I do not understand how a rationally thinking individual would actually write that over 90% of crime is carried out by illegals.
Don’t get me wrong, I am strongly against illegal immigration and believe that they need to be deported and follow the proper procedure for becoming a citizen, but please do not sound so ignorant. You hurt all of conservatism when you say these things.

Are you serious in this comment? Really? A 16 year old girl is standing up to abuse and is standing against abortion as an option and you jump right to her becoming a free loader? Where is the praise for her decision to do what is right.
If this was a story about parents trying to prevent an abortion, people would be hurling insults at her decisions.

Normally I’m on the fence on how I feel about Anonymous. As a pastor trying to show God’s forgiveness and love to our country, on this occasion I have to confess a “go get them” mentality.

I appreciate your comment. As I said on my post, I run a Service Unit and at no point do we ask anyone’s beliefs. I have helped openly gay people, as well as a muslim woman who came in dressed in her hijab. The love the SA shows is modeling that of the freely given love of Christ, and is available to everyone.

I’m head of a Salvation Army service unit, and last year gave $52,000 dollars to the areas needy. True, the Salvation Army is a wesleyan/holiness denomination that does not agree with homosexual choices, but that does not stop people who make those lifestyle choices from receiving assistance!
There are a few openly gay people whom I have helped out a number of times. The Salvation Army’s ministry to the needy models the freely given love of Christ, available to ALL.
It seems I eat like a Democrat, Vote like a Republican…

In Ohio, there are many “logistical problems” that “this has caused local municipalities and law enforcement.”
The problem is, because the general public is unaware that this is a legal right, people panic. When people panic, you may not get nailed for carrying the gun, but you can get picked up for inciting a panic, get questioned, and then usually released with no fine or record, only a few hours lost. Because of the hassle, few people are bold enough to exercise open carry and stick to concealed.
Nah, you don't get picked up for inciting a panic. Going about your daily business carrying a firearm openly or concealed for business or pleasure (Yes, court cases actually said "business or pleasure") do not constitute breaking any laws. If you are carrying legally and are somewhere you have a legal right to be, simply carrying is not inciting any panic. Here in NC, people think it is Going Armed To The Terror Of The Public. There are many conditions that need to be met for that to be a charge. Open carrying in a holster is not one of them.
Anyone who gets their panties in a wad may call the police, the police will come out, they'll see you're doing nothing wrong and they'll turn around and leave. It's happened to me before, it's pretty uneventful though obnoxious. It did start a conversation with the scaredy cat though. She came over to me after the police left "How can it be legal for you to have a gun with you, are you a cop?" "No I'm not. It is my right and your right to own and carry a firearm for self defense in this country and this state." A few more minutes of explanation ended with "Oh, I didn't know. I'm sorry I called police, I really didn't know. I'm going to have to look into this more."

It skews communism as good, because it assumes the end-game/ideal result of communism to be what is existing in the game. The problem is, because 100% of humanity will never operate entirely out of selflessness and with a “greater good” mentality, that end game will never be achieved.
So in a way, the game does accurately portray what communism espouses, it DOES NOT portray the reality that has proven true in every nation to embrace that government style.

Your comment, equating these two individuals to those who the Salvation Army serves and helps is appalling.
try reading the whole article.
“Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately,”
It says, without pay.
I’m all for the person getting canned, but if you’re going to comment, read and don’t troll.

Dear Bible Quotin’ Science Fearin’ Conservative American.
As a pastor, I ask you to please just stop. Your screen name alone is enough to make me head-desk.

It depends which canon you are speaking of, and what year you declare that the things went from being “the early church” to being “the Catholic Church.” The modern catholic cannon was not completely adopted until the fifth century. Considering that Christianity became the state religion in Rome in 380, there is a reasonable argument that it was under the RCC that the Bible w/Apocropha was indeed Catholic formed.
If you are looking to the Protestant bible, then that did not come for many years later.

Firstly, Libertarian plays off the word “Liberty” not liberal.
As for what the difference is, the biggest deal is Libertarian champions very small federal government and strong state governments. You can be conservative, or liberal, and go along with this philosophy. It would basically empower the states to make individual decisions regarding all the various hot-button issues. This is more in line with what the founding fathers intended, and allows states to make intelligent decisions regarding the specific needs of their citizens. This is particularly important when it comes to matters such as education.
I am personally socially conservative and would want my state of Ohio to reflect those values, but I don’t tend to agree that these decisions should be made on the federal level.
