    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?

    I assure you, Sir there is nothing pseudo elite about me. I’m fully elite. Second, much of the bible focuses on tolerance. I’m not sure what version you are reading.

    Two important points worth making. First, many of you call being gay “evil.” If that is evil than what is beheading an innocent person? Is that also evil? Do you really think these two things should be treated in the same category. Remember, the bible lumps homosexuality with adultery, NOT murder.

    Second, being gay has as much to do with sex as being straight has to do with sex. If you were asked to describe the love you have for your partner, would you only talk about sex? Of course not! It’s the same for gay people. Sex is only a small part of life and relationships. The excessive focus on gay sex comes 100% from straight people. By the way, I’m married with children but I’m also capable of being objective toward people who are not just like me.

    This story is the news equivalent of throwing Christians to the lions…give the stupid masses some way to focus their aggressive impulses. There are 350+ comments by “men” taking turns saying how much they hate homosexuals. Wow. It’s like people here don’t think that anyone reads theses comments except other GED holders like themselves. You might as well give this article the sub-title “Why the right is unelectable.”

    Rock is correct. For all you know he doesn’t have a license because it was revoked, or he couldn’t pass the test…

    How do you know?

    That standard would also include most of West Virginia and Appalachia. I’m not sure how they would enjoy Africa.

    The video is widely available. I don’t think it is especially healthy to seek out images like that but if you want to, they can be easily found. Twitter is making a responsible decision. They don’t allow rape videos either. If someone wants to tweet their opinion on the video they are free to do it. Not to mention, these terrorist animals want publicity and exposure. Twitter is denying them those things.

    “Amped up on weed?” Really?

    Read the comments on the Blaze for the Fergussen stories. You don’t even have to look as far as YouTube to see vile racism in action on the right. How could you deny such an obvious truth. This comment and many more like it are just a few clicks away on this very website.

    “Please africans, please go back to africa! We the other of what we call the human race are just tired of you.”

    WAKE UP! Perhaps your avid gaming left a gap in your cognitive ability.

    I agree, and I was similarly liberal for the majority of my life. However, much of what is written by the blaze community does not seem like messages that would unite people. Conservatives only have a chance if the party disassociates itself with the people that clearly have no contact with black people, and seem to believe that blacks are primitives. I only had to scroll down three comments to find this gem, “Please africans, please go back to africa! We the other of what we call the human race are just tired of you.” Similar sentiments appear in probably six of every ten comments. Would you really want a party associated with those people to be in power? The left is creating terrible problems, but the type of ignorance that seems so prevalent on the right would be worse. We need a conservative who doesn’t use the principles of conservativism to hide their lack of compassion, hatred, and overall simple thinking. Hopefully someone like that will come along.

    Remember people…there could be 5000 peaceful protesters, and 25 criminals using the opportunity to loot and raise hell. It isn’t fair referring to a “they” as most of you do in your comments. There is not a homogenous group of people there, and the bad ones shouldn’t define the rest. Of course, the blaze greatly prefers the “big bad black” narrative, so it isn’t a surprise that they would report the story without any mention of the vast majority of non-violent protestors.

    Are you a psychiatrist?! There is no reliable data to suggest that drug use in adulthood makes permanent changes in cortical structures that can be observed clinically after extended abstinence. Of course, alcohol is the exception. The THC data is just starting to appear, and that seems to be highly mediated by the increased plasticity of the adolescent brain. The changes associated with stimulants seem to be primarily sub-cortical, which as you know doctor would not have significant impact on planning and other frontal-associated behavior. All that said, I agree that there does seem to be a clinical syndrome associated with extended drugs use, but it has no known anatomical substrate and it isn’t present in all subjects. Furthermore, abstinence seems to mediate those symptoms almost completely in most people. Abstinence in the context of comprehensive recovery is an even more powerful protective factor. Maybe we will see each other on rounds.

    There are MANY people with deep faith, who are also affected by depression. Faith is important, but it alone does NOT cure depression. Putting that idea out only serves to make people who are struggling feel even more inadequate.

    Molotov cocktails and destruction of property are not part of your right to assemble. Do you disagree?
