I’m pretty sure that I read in “Federalist” #30 something that Hamilton specifically says that punctuation was debated and that they decided that punctuation was not to be scrutinized to closely. What was written was supposed to be straight forward. I know that this is the Constitution argument and not Declaration argument, but I have to believe that they must have debated the issue in 1776 also.

The Church does not force celibacy on priests. A priest freely chooses celibacy, a choice he makes long before he’s ordained. Priestly celibacy is a charism of the Holy Spirit, a gift, a special grace that depends on a free-will response by the receiver. There is no law in Catholicism that says that Priests MUST be celibate, but is currently only choosing those who have taken that discipline for Ordination.
Mr. John, We Catholics don’t give care what you think our organization should or should not allow.
Caution is always the best when understanding these things, but God will reveal himself any way He chooses. Sometimes it doesn’t have to make sense to anyone but the person he is speaking to.

It’s a baby step, but it’s in the right direction. Leave my cross alone, I’ll leave your nothing alone.

So sad that she was put into this position. Our best and brightest have the right not to be saddled with the inconvenience of thinking too much. The missing page was a sabotage effort from that idiot Sarah Palin, who is SO stupid that when her teleprompter screwed up, she adlibbed until it worked again and nobody knew any different.

This is a non issue. Leave the man alone.

Is this what the Left consider a “Renewable Resource?”
Yes, because they don't believe in the dignity of life. To them, life is just rearranged molecules that just so happen to reproduce. Thus the word "fetus" which they somehow think is still part of the woman's body, even though it is a new human being (it just can't survive on its own, it needs nurturing).
Conservatives throw them a real curveball when we show them that reproducing molecules can think! Oh, and have morals! What a revolutionary idea! They say you can in effect create your own reality in your brain, so if one believes they are nothing more than rearranged molecules, that is what they will remain. However, if one calls upon their Creator God and strives to serve him, much good will result.
Here we could add a tally to another of the evils of Social Darwinism. I think we're up to about six hundred and sixty six of them by now.

“Then I asked the dead soldier’s father if he knew his kid had balls THIS big! Yea, I’m that cool.”

“I screamed, ‘The killer is inside the house!’ But then I realized that I wasn’t watching a horror movie, I was watching video of Benghazi.”

Nothing brings the trolls out onto The Blaze quicker than the Holy Father.
Agree dude. But Jesus told Peter the gates of hell will not prevail against His church when He gave Peter the keys to the kingdom. I pray that the time will come when we all will be one as Jesus wanted.
And it gives us opportunity to pray for each one of them.

I second that! Hell, I would have settled for a KISS state at the very least. That band has a net worth of a small state in itself.

I’ve lived my whole life in Maine and not once have I met someone who even took R.E.M. seriously let alone considered themselves remotely a fan. MUST be Massholes who are moving up here into York and Cumberland County who are listening.

“While we certainly would have liked a victory for workers here, we deeply respect the Volkswagen Global Group Works Council, Volkswagen management and IG Metall for doing their best to create a free and open atmosphere for workers to exercise their basic human right to form a union,” King said in a statement.” Victory for who? If the workers voted on this, then the outcome IS a victory regardless of which way it went. King is lamenting victory being taken from the union.

Khan and a few others I can think of were also guilty of making trouble, causing war among the people and themselves
