    Thanks Matt for being courageous enough to say it. This is a subject I’ve often lamented, but whenever I’ve spoken it out loud I’ve been left pondering the ages old unanswerable question: “If a man says something in the forest and there’s not a woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?”

    Thanks for the thumbs-down genius. Too brave to answer my honest question I guess. Better just thumbs-down it.

    This is exactly why a lot of people don’t like Christians these days FYI.

    I’m no scriptorian although I have read The Bible multiple times. The questions I have for those of you here who claim to be are: Where in The Bible does it expressly say that Jesus was not married? and: Does having been married make him any less the savior of all mankind?

    I don’t recall having ever read in The Bible that Jesus never married, and I don’t think that it is a comprehensive history of everything that ever happened in his life. More a succinct statement of what is important for us to know about his gospel. I also suspect that there are a lot of writings about him are not included in canonical scripture. I doubt that this one is authentic since it’s supposed to be 1500 years old and I don’t necessarily trust 500 year retrospect. That being said, the only perfect human who we should use as our role model, could easily have been married and had children within that relationship without hurting my faith in him since that has been ordained of God.

    Help me out here…

    Mr. Krauss you are a despicable human being. What has religion done to you in your life to make you think it is acceptable to brainwash children to be opposed to it?

    Religion is but one example of how this tactic could be (and is) used. Others include teaching that the US is a democracy, never teaching about its foundation or what lead to it, and teaching that science has (ANY) absolute answers to the most basic questions about the universe (like “Why does it exist?”).

    Many religious people are not any better though. They teach that the observations made and repeated by numerous scientists are also all wrong. Some things speak for themselves. Let’s say, for example, that scientists are completely wrong about everything. Using only your holy book of choice; How would you describe why/how you are sitting in your chair looking at your computer screen and reading this message? Because God made it that way no doubt. Gravity is holding you in your chair. Your eyes collect light from your screen and your brain interprets what is collected. Maxwell theorized in basic electronic theory that has evolved and culminated in your computer existing. None of those things are discussed in The Bible and yet they are known to us.

    My point is that understanding the world requires knowledge of both science and religion and they are not destructive to one another unless the people involved in them make them do so. God created both religion and science. Are either of them evil?

    Hasn’t it? How many religious people do you know/see in the US today vs 20 years ago?

    When you are young and unable to think critically and your questions are reprimanded you will eventually quit asking them and therefore lose your ability to think critically.

    I thought “Global Warming ( or Climate Change, or Climate Weirding, or Ozone Holes, or Global Cooling, or whatever the latest iteration of it is)” was supposed to be killing all of our food crops by now. What’s this world coming to.

    On a side note, having been raised by the children of farmers and around farmers during my formative years, I’ve never heard a farmer wish anything but the best for his neighbors. Clearly this guy is a dirt bag. Trausch – u and c = Trash. I’m just saying.

    I thought “mercy killings” were a shariah law thing.

    I don’t see this as being any different than aborting a child because you’re not ready to take care of it.

    Controlling and expecting to follow orders are entirely different things.

    I’m referring to greater control than the person’s conscience in a situation where their oath to defend and protect The Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic might come into call.

    I don’t want ‘rogue’ officers in charge of our nukes, but I certainly don’t want a hyper-partisan administration who think citizens of this country are enemies in complete control over them either.

    Do you want a democrat robot who doesn’t have a conscience and follows orders from this administration as though they were from God at that control panel when the commander in chief decides that Texas or Ohio (or pick your group of people that could oppose his authority) is an enemy entity? We’ve already seen that they’ll use the IRS to silence dissenters. Why not have the ‘Chain of Command’ in place in the military to just go ahead and kill the dissenters or force them into re-education/labor camps? Sadly these are the things we have to think about with every action taken by this administration.

    Seems suspicious indeed. How likely do we think it is that the current administration wants someone in those positions that they can control? Might be worth asking.

    Just got the same thing in Idaho yesterday. 3 notes that show up in the mail grading me on my voter turnout, etc. Mine didn’t sound quite so threatening though.

    “The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat.”

    From this administration too. Might be the very definition of ‘the pot calling the kettle black.’

    MSNBC must be feeling threatened. Not surprising considering the apparent quality of their reporting.

    I’m not sure how to react to this one. On the one hand you’ve got some idiot who sees a forced quarantine as a violation of her civil rights, so why should we think she would be willing to quarantine herself. On the other hand, as a guy called Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    Giving this power to the government doesn’t seem like a good thing, but lets face it, she was willing to sacrifice her rights (potentially the right to life) to go to Africa to help fight this disease in the first place, so maybe that sacrifice extends beyond her trip there?

    Allow me to point out some obvious facts for you:
    1) The guy who wrote this article isn’t called Glenn.
    2) This article is drenched with sarcasm.

    If you read this page you already know that though, so I can only assume you’re talking to Glenn Beck because he owns The Blaze. In which case you clearly have no idea what you’re talking about unless you consider saying that the government shouldn’t be involved in any way with any marriage support for gay marriage. All I’ve heard him say in many years of listening to him is that churches should decide for themselves if that is something they will do and let the chips fall where they may. Also, FYI, since I can tell that you’re such an informed individual, nobody but the left has made the case that homosexuality is similar to race.

    Go troll somewhere that only the unthinking will be swayed by your ignorant remarks. It’s probably not going to work here.

    Sorry, but I have to side with the property owner this time. If you rent you have to make sure whoever owns the property you’re renting is happy with the arrangement.

    I would like to think that I have the right to throw anybody I want to off of my personal property at any time for any reason. I certainly don’t want the VA or any other parasitic government entity to have the ability to tell me what I have to allow on my property.

    That being said, I would at least have enough decency to help a veteran find somewhere to go where his pet won’t damage my property and make sure he has time to do it. Three day’s notice is ridiculous. Shame on him for that.

    I missed that one too… Always good to learn something new about that “dusty old” God inspired document.

    Also, I don’t remember reading anywhere in it what a potential employer is allowed to ask on an application, but it’s been a while since I’ve read it…

    Why do you want people to get shot Mr. Biden? What’s with this war on people who don’t defend themselves?

    Hooray for political correctness! Doesn’t it make America a safer and more diverse place?

  • [9] October 9, 2014 at 4:04pm

    You might want to see if you can make that point to the White House.

    Ban tile floors! If it can save even one child’s life, isn’t it worth doing?
