    It’s a shame that the politics is keeping so many of you from exploring the science. Sure, it isn’t as bad as the media says it is, but there is something going on related to human factors. I don’t know what the effects will be, but it is likely there will be some effect. The skepticism in the scientific community relates to how firmly the results have been stated, and the stated magnitude of the effect. Virtually NO scientists maintains that this is all just a sham. Please read the science…it will be informative, and it isn’t as politically polarizing as the media portrays.

    How can you accuse him of taking that text out of context, and also believe the the Quran quotes are IN context? Could you really be that hypocritical? There are so many violent passages in the bible. On a numbers basis, the bible wins easily. What about this gem from the bible…I provided all the text so there is no question about the “context.”

    that scoundrels among you are leading their fellow citizens astray by saying, ‘Let us go worship other gods’—gods you have not known before. 14 In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find that the report is true and such a detestable act has been committed among you, 15 you must attack that town and completely destroy[a] all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. 16 Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the open square and burn it. Burn the entire town as a burnt offering to the Lord your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. 17 Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the Lord will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a large nation, just as he swore to your ancestors.

    You are right, Carl…there are two sides to this. Detention was excessive, but the school really does need to confront a difficult liability issue.

    Obozo-

    There is almost NOTHING socialist in the nazi party. Nazism was a specific brand of fascism. Hitler’s stated political enemy were the communists. You are proposing that all of the different political parties in Weimar Germany were socialist? I guess we should back-up…how are you defining socialist?

    If you trusted the source, you are an idiot. Why do so many people here have to resort to nonsense in order to make a point. If you are saying anything worthwhile, shouldn’t you be able to produce something a bit stronger than something you kind of remember reading about some people meeting three decades ago! You are impossible to take seriously!

    Have you graduated high school? The OPPOSITION party to the Nazis were the Social Democrats. Neither party was especially similar to modern American democrats. The nazis, of course were organized around the Fuhrerprinzip, which like Italy and Spain was a form of fascism. The social democrats were much more similar to modern day democrats, although there were more differences than similarities. Nonetheless, the nazis were considered the “right” and social democrats were considered the “left.” The “socialist” in national socialist was a very calculated move to pull voters from the middle. Remember, the nazis never won a large majority of the popular vote within Germany.

    Wow! You guys don’t have many arrows in your quiver!

    Your conclusions are incorrect. Imagine someone in prison, or even the military. In those situations people become accustom to, or even rely on patterns of behavior that we would find uncomfortable, or unacceptable if those behaviors occurred in the outside world. Imagine if your boss made you run laps, or sent you to isolation. In abuse situations people become used to terrible conditions, yet they also lack the perspective to accurately judge the severity of the situation. Hence, they stay. It isn’t accurate to infer that the situation has been resolved just because a person isn’t leaving.

    Oompa-

    When someone says the “rate of” they are referring to the “percent rate of occurrence.” In other words, the size of populations are irrelevant. How can you be walking around, and not know that? You must be frequently confused.

    As to the veracity of the statement, I’m skeptical that violent crime is higher among people who identify as Christian. I wouldn’t be shocked, but I’m skeptical…

    I don’t believe that you have friends in the military who believe that. Just think about it. Who would write such a plan? Who would carry it out? Would your “friends” follow those orders? If they would, they wouldn’t also be telling you about their suspicions. The government (or military) are not homogenous monoliths executing the will of the commander. They are more like ant colonies where the ants have the option to do their own thing, but usually choose to cooperate. If those ants (I’m not suggesting military men/women are ants!) were asked to carry out an order against their own towns, friends, and family, they wouldn’t comply. There are many existential threats to our country but the president becoming a dictator is not one of them.

    I really like it when someone who clearly knows what he is talking about appears on the Internet and cuts through the BS. I find it restorative.

    You would be incorrect.

    What is the “gay Marxist regime?” Are you just reading titles from your video collection?

    There is nothing “nazi-like” about our legal system. That suggestion is idiotic, and suggests that what you know about Nazism and/or our legal system comes from a comic book. Not to mention, other than mentioning the ACLU your comment has nothing to do with the article.

    And yet 77% of Americans are Christians. Over 95% of public officials are Christian. The Christian God is even enshrined on our money. Sounds like a new inquisition. It must be a hard life. Don’t become like the groups you oppose, and start exploiting a narrative of victimhood and persecution. It’s weak minded.

    I agree that people should have the right to determine who they serve. However, how is this a first amendment issue?? It isn’t. At best, it is a property rights issue.

    Misty-

    It would be equally illegal to make sexual preference a criteria for membership.

    IdiotGuy-

    Attendance was dropping before all of the changes you disdain. The appeal to younger people reversed the trend. Your impulse to limit the word of God to a few holy people runs counter to the entire gospel.

    Shouldn’t you folks watch the film before judging the women who make the decision to not have a severely disabled child? If God works through us, might he also be working through them? Only an idiot would discount that possibility. Perhaps God is giving these women the strength to make a decision that will spare an innocent child a short life lived in a hospital and filled with surgeries. Before going on about what the doctor said about your child, and now he is an athlete blah blah blah…consider that those cases are the exception, and never based on third trimester visual and medical evidence about about the health of the child. These women don’t celebrate after this procedure, they mourn. Deeply and profoundly. Perhaps there is more here than what your pastor’s PowerPoint slides suggested.

    This is the first time you have ever seen a naked woman, isn’t it?
