Religion was relevant in the past because it was a social safety net. In the modern age, government does a superior job of doing so, without making people feel they are living off the charity of others .. You might call it a sense of entitlement, but it can also be viewed as dignity . .

I just cannot believe that the safety of our children is no longer the concern of the federal govt.
The Far Left ( the wing which now controls the ) Democrats have united every minority group into one large mass of angry - ' different from the majority ' - group of political activists . Goal : to take power from the majority and give it to the very- unified minority . Operating from the White House with the power of the Executive Branch , The Obama Far Left has been quite successful .
Script boy ,
I just cannot believe that you have reached this idiotic conclusion .

So, when did the US Supreme Court get jurisdiction over another state? And who will enforce the verdict?

What a wonderful world we would have if only there were no people trying to force others to believe as they do. All we have to do is stop criticizing others. Just stop it. No matter how ridiculous it sounds. Let it go.
He's a profession at odds with his beliefs
THAT'S the problem.

festivalgirl – obviously you do not know what you are talking about. From the Christian point of view each and every human is a sinner and deserves to be put to death. It is those who seek to be righteous who are saved from death. And righteousness cannot be earned. Ask God to reveal to you how to become righteous.

Hillary’s whole career is a string of lies.

does anyone remember President Andrew Jackson and the “pet banks” scandal?
Did some of you not read the article correctly? It clearly said. “Death to America” on the front and “Because of Obama’s policies” on the back, SMDH.
It's actually called free speech, meaning it may disgust you but it is his right. The couple committed assault and violated his first amendment right

In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge shut the door on all immigration – and immigration remained closed for 41 years – until Senator Edward Kennedy re-opened it with his legislation in 1965. Remember the economic boom we had in the 1950s? It was, in part, due to low immigration.
How did we have 'low immigration' if immigration was 'closed'?
Coolidge’s plan didn’t close all immigration- just some of it.
things changed in 1957, when Congress more freely allowed immigration for family unification and skilled labor.
my Mom moved here and got her green card in 1960 and my Dad moved here and got his in 1962.
It was, in full, due to the New Deal and WW2.
Both the roaring 1920s and the 1950s were before my time.
Description: The '50s and 60s were the era of the so-called " brain drain, when the US tried to siphon every scientist worth his/her salt from the rest of the world. Naturally, this influx of highly intelligent people contributed in no small measure to the economic boom.
Mr. Yes. Read some books. There is an old saying that stresses the need to learn from history or that one will suffer by repeating it's tragic mistakes.
I didn't really realize that, but it makes sense. And not that Coolidge won the medal for "best prez" but if he could do it and not have the universe implode, I'll bet we could manage it too, that is if we wanted to. Good points.

You know, this reminds me of the corporate and wealthy individual useful-idiots used by Hitler up until 1934. Once he achieved power by force, what did he do? “Night of the Long Knives.” Hitler killed all of his useful idiots in one night.
What type of world do the useful idiots on the Left expect to live in once freedom and liberty is literally dead?
The way I understand it, High Society (Establishment) has stood in the way of capitalism, in their name of Profit, which results in low wages, and higher prices! That philosophy came across the Pond from the U.K. and Eastern Europe.

Any business that is against freedom and liberty I am against. A business has the right to refuse to earn money.
Crickey, if you cannot get the cake you want from one vendor, then go to another. Oh, wait. That’s right. You’re against free markets, too.

The president of the united states is not supposed to be part of the budget process. For this very reason.

sigh. I just don’t understand why I cannot have the right to be left alone.
