l never liked it when principals would promise to do some sort of humiliating thing if their students read a certain number of books. Just teach them right in the first grade and you will have a school-ful of competent readers. Most students do not read on their own today because reading is a burdensome chore resulting from the ineffective reading methods still used in our schools today. To humiliate yourself before children gives the message that there are times when disrespect toward those in authority is acceptable. It is NEVER acceptable.

SLAPTHELEFT: Juan Williams, Bob Beckel, and the other Fox News liberals are doing their jobs: speaking their “truth”. Although Fox continually gets labeled conservative, it is mostly conservative, but deliberately not TOTALLY conservative. These liberals are on there to give an opposing viewpoint. When you see them, it is during segments that are editorializing, not news-reporting. They are giving their opinions, not giving the news. It would be boring, like MSNBC, to not have legitimate opposing views. That’s why Fox News’ ratings are so high and MSNBC’s are so low.

These atheists who claim to be constitution experts, seem, in my opinion, to miss the actual words….
It’s “Freedom OF Religion”, not “Freedom FROM Religion”. It’s not that hard to read. I don’t get it.

Understanding this first, that no prophecy of scripture is to be made by private interpretation.

Commonsense123, You didn’t “break anything” to me. Again, to other Catholic-haters here, may I refer you to an authentic source of Catholic information: http://www.catholic.com/
It won’t kill you to learn about a topic of which you are painfully ignorant. Try it.

In response to your saying, ““A mediator is one who carries messages between people in situations where there needs to be an understanding and settlement of differences,
Mediator interposes himself between people who need reconciliation of some matter.
Intercessor brings a prayer or petittion on someones behalf. Mediator settles, intercessor beseechs, requests earnestly.”
So while I pray to God for people, I don’t mediate with God for people.”
It is always good to understand the context of what people are saying. I even question which side of the Junipera Serra story is true. None of us were there to see.

Only one of the three claimants to the papacy was the true pope during the time of the “three popes.” There were a few “anti-popes” (as they are properly called) who had strong backing during the period know as the Western Schism, which was essentially a political division within the western Church. History shows that the rightful pontiff, Pope Gregory XII, stepped down along with the other two anti-popes so that the conflict could be resolved and a single claimant, Pope Martin V, could be chosen.
Now, one might ask, “how could this happen to the Church that claims Jesus Himself founded her?” The answer is that Jesus Himself also chose imperfect human beings, the Apostles, as His immediate successors. The Church here on earth is made up of imperfect human beings because only imperfect human beings are available. I believe that because the conflict was resolved (and that the Church remains the oldest continuously run institution in human history) this demonstrates the counterpoint that despite our human imperfections God still governs His Church.
The Pope is “infallible” only in matters of faith and morals. They could always give their opinions regarding other matters, as in the the controversy about Galileo. (And, I believe, Pope Francis’ opinions about economics), but as Catholics, we are not required to agree with those opinions.
For a look at the unbroken line of popes starting with Peter, see the following: http://oce.catholic.com/index.php?title=List_of_Popes

Why? It’s not because we don’t want them to eventually learn the definition. But because 8 year-olds are mere children! Look at the animals in the world. Do you see how mother birds, for example, tenaciously protect their young? If it’s natural for them to offer protection, then why not for us? Third graders still believe in Santa Claus. They could get a rough overview of 9-11, but not to this extent. This will rightly give them nightmares.

Freedom of speech has its limits. It comes with responsibility.

I am a conservative, but I disagree with you here. Although the shirt is not vulgar, it IS distracting. And it was meant to be distracting. The school setting is not a place for distracting things. There are enough distractions to these students as it is. And as for Bruce Jenner’s transformation, some babies in utero are formed differently in their brains. The hormonal make up is such that a boy truly views himself as a girl and vice versa. Yes, it is an abnormality in that it is not the norm. But it is not vulgar. Who, in their right minds would CHOOSE the huge inconvenience to change their sexuality? These people need to be left alone and to be able to live in peace. With that said, I agree that wearing this T-shirt is inappropriate, whether the wearer is lesbian transsexual gay or whatever. People need to be understanding on both sides of this argument. Research the topic of brain development of babies in utero. As a conservative I am proud to be among intelligent, educated people. But when we start talking like this ( condemning transsexuals), we just become fodder for the left because it makes us sound stupid.

If there’s anything that The Blaze needs even more than a censor, is a PROOF-READER!! The spelling and grammar mistakes that appear here on a regular basis are so distracting that it is difficult to comprehend what is being read. Please, Glenn. Hire me!

Well, let’s at least keep the feast of the Immaculate Conception. Us Catholics have been part of this country for centuries.
