    Having lived in many states and now in Idaho, I can say with assurance that this poll is horribly inaccurate. Idaho has far better drivers than Utah, Nevada, and California for example.

    Not worth reading. Move along folks.

    Sounds like a good business opportunity to me. Anybody have the capital to start a bank?

    “We believe each of us is called to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.” As long as they are not gay anyway I guess.

    What exactly would it be in scouting that you are protecting your children from by having a gay boy tie knots or hike with them?

    Also, are you really protecting them by sheltering them from the things that are going on in the world? This is reality. Boys ARE being taught by modern media that they are more acceptable in society if they are “openly gay” so they go out and say that they are; but that’s a different discussion altogether.

    The fact of the matter is that this is an evil that is in the world. Rather than teaching your boys to run from it why don’t you teach them to recognize and confront it? Maybe something along the lines of “live in the world but not of the world.” Don’t go create some other society where only people that fit into a box that you find acceptable are welcome. Don’t hate the sinner hate the sin. That sin is not going to happen in a Boy Scout setting unless your children let it.

    I’ll say it again. Any boy who is “openly gay” needs to be around those with strong Christian values, not those whose “Christian values” are to run and hide when they see someone who is doing something sinful.

    They don’t allow openly gay men to serve as leaders. Perhaps your forgot about the furor the left caused about that a few years ago.

    So the good Christian ostracizes those with beliefs that are different from their own? How do you expect to straighten these boys out by not letting them be around boys who are more sure of themselves? When you were a young man were you completely sure on what you wanted? Neither are any of these boys. Casting them aside like they are unwelcome and less than human is going to do nothing but steel their resolve to continue on that sinful path and turn their back on you. I don’t think Christ ever said to only welcome and associate with those who are exactly like you. I’m pretty sure he taught loving those who hate you and teaching your values to everyone.

    Nevermind though. Let’s just take the safe route and interject sex where the topics couldn’t be farther from and thump The Bible when something seems off about a child’s understanding of it.

    So like the standard liberal mentality of “guns kill people.” Inanimate objects act upon people and cause things to happen not the other way around.

    This couldn’t be more obviously false. The existence of a thing doesn’t make it good or bad, what people do with it does. People do things that are good or bad.

    If music is bad, it is because YOU make it so in YOUR own mind. You have the power to do that.

    End of story.

    And apparently the word ‘b”u”t”t’ is worthy of censorship on this site now too. Come on The Blaze. Are you kidding me? I thought this site was one that valued free speech.

    Are you telling me that Uechi and Apple Bite aren’t okay with beating children? It appears that the others have been censored, but those are the folks I was addressing.

    Again by curiosity, Can you give me chapter and verse on spanking being in the bible? I don’t recall Jesus ever saying “Thou shalt slap your child on the **** when he does something you find offensive.” I’m not saying that I’m against spanking or that it’s wrong. Only that it doesn’t always work and beating never does.

  • September 9, 2014 at 7:13pm

    Just for the sake of my own curiosity: How many of you who are advocating beating this child actually have children of your own?

    I’m curious because I have a violent child who I have stopped spanking because it only makes matters worse. If that’s your fix for everything child related, perhaps you should have your own children some day. You might just learn that all of God’s children are different and beating them is usually not the best way to handle them.

    You can’t correct what a child is doing wrong by doing something that is wrong to them. Two wrongs never have made a right. Chances are if they don’t understand that they are hurting an animal they don’t understand why you are hurting them. Maybe that’s a good place to start.

    So let me get this straight. The perp shoots a MAN in the leg, but we’re angry because he killed a DOG? WTF is wrong with us?

    Welcome to America in 2014…

    As usual I’m amazed how few people still consider that police officers are people too. I know it’s surprising but they actually are human people.

    How would you feel if some jackas$ was doing that to you?

    Stop feeding the trolls.

  • [11] August 12, 2014 at 9:27am

    That’s exactly the kind of loving Christ-like attitude to make things better. Don’t turn the other cheek, take pleasure in others’ misfortune that they brought upon themselves. Way to go.

    You might want to consider that while you’re watching their heads roll, you will be in line for the same treatment.

    Any guesses as to how many of these same 11,000 people are fine with being groped by the TSA in the name of safety?

    “It’s not entirely clear what triggered the pit bull to attack.”

    It’s a pit bull. That’s what triggered the attack. These are unpredictable animals at the best of times. They are violent animals the rest of the time. Why is it that every dog attack on a toddler story involves one? The more of these animals that get put down the better.

    Must be an election year.

    I’ll be glad, as someone who might fall into the Xer category of ages, to have a country left to run when we are old enough for all of the policy makers that your generation elected have died and left their seats of power to someone else.

    Just remember when you point your finger at anyone you have 3 more pointing right back at you. Also remember that the median age in the US isn’t going anywhere but up meaning that you can’t keep blaming the young for the problems you helped create.

    As someone involved with the mobile industry I do pay attention to tech blogs. I must ask which ones Rush is reading, because I would say exactly the opposite. There are far more Apple zealots in the world than there are for anything else. The fact of the matter is that Samsung is building superior products and has been for some time.

    If there is any political comparison to draw Apple=Progressives since they think you are incapable of making good decisions about what to do with your device, and thus make the choice for you. This is exactly what any tech bloggers who dislike Apple dislike about them, and BTW most of them seem much more libertarian to me. Misguided at times and probably easily swayed, but libertarian.
