    As a follower of Christ, I put His Word over the US Constitution. My rights as a man are from God. America was never mentioned, nor promised in scripture. I once found myself placing founding documents over God’s documents. No more.

    My God has sacrificed more, and promised more than any mortal man. I will stand for freedom, rights, and liberty, but I will not fall into the devil’ strap of allowing anger to guide me.

    I’m w/ you Glenn…

    It’s called the Great Commission- Mathew 28:19 says “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”

    I know these kids- their testimony has brought more into the flock- Jesus didn’t hang out being “buddy, buddy” w/ those who were pompous- He went to the sick, poor, and lost. I can’t think of a better place to send a message like this then to a place like YouTube…

    He wasn’t thinking of the “YouTube possibilities, he was thinking of the soul-saving possibilities…Our young people will use technology to bring thousands to the Lord while those who are stuck in traditions and ceremonies will ignore the very lost Christ commanded us to save…there were some people in Bible who were stuck in traditions and what’s that thing….the Law.

    Time, and time again, people who abuse animals go on to abuse people (if any already aren’t doing it)- whether it is the serial rapist, killer, or wife/child abuser.

    Apparently, if you hate the 2nd Amendment, and believe shredding the bodies of babies while living in the womb is attractive- then Mike Dickinson is your guy.

    This is a new stance to take- call those who hate baby shredding “mentally disabled”- but loving the dismembering of babies makes you stable? Welcome to the world of progressivism.

    The type of violence we are seeing like this, where innocent bystanders are being targeted, particularly those who are older like this man, is something new we have seen arise during the past several years.

    The so-called “hope & change” brought along with the Obama Administration has given rise to anger and violence. Entitlement mentality used to mean entitlement to stuff- now it means entitlement to violence.

    Treat them like adults- through them in the can for a few years.

    This is actually an example when Bill Maher is being “politically incorrect”- as the title of his previous show implied. Maher has these brief glimpses into conservative/Libertarian thinking. On one hand, he comes across as a guy who rests his laurels on “rational thinking”, but then he bounces back to the progressive end of the pool where the useful-idiots swim.

    I feel like Maher could have an “I get it” moment where he finally takes that turn away from leftwing idiocy. As comedians are concerned, Dennis Miller was a staunch liberal comedian. I remember somewhere during the late Clinton years, he started to include jokes mocking the Clinton White House. By the time 9/11 happened, he had crossed over to calling himself a conservative.

    There is hope…even with Bill Maher.

    Even when SNL does Obama skits, they make him look good…ObamaCare isn’t being mocked, their marketing of ObamaCare is being mocked…

    The “community organizing” left, along with activist unions have created these little monsters. Think about it- young people are continuously taught/groomed to look at the Occupy movement, the bullies at GLAAD, union thugs, not to mention the man who they were told to idolize, the community activist himself, President Obama.

    To the teachers unions: they are listening and watching you and your comrades actions. Don’t get your way? You protest, bully, show up on the doorsteps of families to get your way- whether it is deserved or not.

    When we have a President who is preaching entitlement thinking, and a willing mainstream media that acts as his propaganda machine, followed by teachers unions who have Sal Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” on their reading list- what do you expect?!

    Obama has gone from being hip in 2008 to being awkward & lame…

    I got baptized by a ex-heroin addict tattooed biker who used to run with the Pagans MC at a recovery meeting at my church…He joked around about trusting him not to hold me down in the water too long :-) He has since gone to be with the Lord- Rest in peace my brother!

    “19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
    -Mathew 28:19-20

    The real Ranger should come to the school sporting a police uniform and see how those cops like it…something makes me think they wouldn’t…

    I think some people here are misreading the headline- Bill Maher is actually making a pro-Israel statement here (as well as a pro-Jay Leno statement).

    Because Maher seems to always be saying ignorant things the headline leads one to believe he was making a jab at Leno, and Israel for that matter. But he’s actually giving a speech in honor of Leno- and making the point that like Israel, Leno has had many undeserved attacks by the mainstream media.

    Read the whole article ;-)

    I don’t know what church these people go to, but at our church, our pastor sticks to two things and keeps one thing out of the “pulpit”: 2 things preached: God’s Word and truth, and the thing he keeps out: his opinion.

    Our pastor regular reminds us that he’s not there to preach a warm and fuzzy, keep us in denial sermon. And we’re reminded to ask, “do our actions help attract people to Christ, or detract them”.

    Among my friends, the Christians leave 20% (and many times more). On the other hand, I worked with a progressive who owned two BMW’s, two homes, and was a sarcastic, atheist who would look down his nose at “those Jesus freaks”. He was also known for leaving a tip in front of the server, and then picking it back up when they walked away.

    When I witnessed this, I would then leave the proper tip when he wasn’t looking. So in this case, it was the “Jesus freak” who was the entry level pay worker, leaving the tip that his rich atheist boss should have left.

    As a recovering heroin addict who now works with recovering addicts, I have also watched entire families break apart, with porn at the roots. I didn’t believe it until I began working with men who lied, cheated, racked up thousands of dollars in credit cards, and eventually cheated on their spouses.

    There was a time when you had to go to a store, look someone in the eye, and buy porn. It wouldn’t come into the home unless it was physically brought in. Today, the most hardcore, once illegal, porn is one mouse click away from our spouse, and kids.

    I had a guy who had a beautiful, sexually vibrant and healthy wife, but he was consumed with smut. Through accountability, and his faith, he has experienced healing, but it was a rough storm.

    Obviously, this was a bad idea- on many levels (I mean, come on, what on earth did this guy think was going to be the reaction?!).

    But tattooist Chris Torres actually makes an interesting, and true point when he says, “People are still offered jobs after being pedophiles…I don’t know why everyone is treating this kid like he raped a 12-year-old.”

    Again, stupid, stupid, stupid! But the fact is, our society, particularly so-called educated, upper/middle class white liberals get their panties in a twist over a dog tat, but a child sexual predator will be discussed as, “sexual identity rights”.

    While I’m not offended in the least by breastfeeding- my sister breastfed all 3 of her kids in front of me, as a follower of Christ, I don’t want to be a stumbling block to someone else- no matter how non-nonsensical it may be to me.

    So if a restaurant, or business makes a non-breastfeeding “in the open” rule because it may offend someone, I can choose to not use that business.

    As 1 Corinthians 8 says, “Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.”

    I eat shellfish and pork- love it. But if my Jewish brother and sister come for dinner, and that food would offend them, I will not cook it, nor eat it around them- not because I follow their religious doctrine, but because I don’t want to make them stumble- even if that “stumbling” is creating stress, feelings of offense, or creating a desire in them to break their customs.

    So from a personal view- yeah, I get it, what’s the big deal. From a follower of Christ, I lean back on 1 Corinthians 8…

    Glenn is running two tv studios, multiple radio programs, a publishing house, etc. He is not a lawyer, legislator, etc. He has already dedicated more tv, radio, and online news time to this story than any national media. If you actually watched his program, you would know he had the father on both tv, and radio. Glenn also had several guests representing people who are in the same boat as this family.

    And no, Glenn doesn’t have time to read these comments, nor censor theme, because he values something called the First Amendment…

    And within hours, hundreds of free-agent players who have been overlooked suddenly begin to “come out of the closet”…

    I wouldn’t have believed this story, but back when I was in college, my buddies thought it would be a grand idea to buy a pound of weed and go crazy. I don’t remember how much they put into the baked goods they made, but based on the reaction my body had, I can only imagine.

    I was an regular pot smoker at the time, so this was nothing new to me. But by the time my body began to ingest the special treats, my world was so whacked out I was praying for a safe return from the trip I was on.

    Not only was I unable to walk (everything was sideways), I couldn’t speak, understand language, and I felt so nauseous that holding down the contents in my stomach didn’t last long- not to mention the paranoia. It was a THC overload. There were no other substances used that night, it was simply well grown ganga.

    Years later I moved on to heroin when the weed didn’t do it for me anymore- (I am now 10 years clean- amen!), but I never felt as screwed up as I did on that THC overload. This was a case where “more” wasn’t “better”. Makes me sick to my stomach thinking about it…

    Today I work with addicts like myself, and I am getting more and more people whose lives became dependent on weed- that is, they couldn’t function daily without it. That is, when the weed wasn’t there, their mind and body chemistry were disrupted. Crazy stuff…

    We rebel against our parents. Period.

    And if dad is a CEO of a fortune 500 company, pushing his son to follow his footsteps, there is a very good chance that the son will drop out of college and follow the Grateful Dead around the country. (Yeah, I’m stuck in the late 80s).

    My father wasn’t a pastor, but he was a deacon at church, ministry leader, ran Bible studies- and an amazing father who still bends over backwards to encourage his adult kids. But like many teens, I began to rebel against my parents in high school. While I didn’t all out stop believing in God, I was not putting God at the center of my life.

    By the time I was 27 years old, I was living in Baltimore City, working at Johns Hopkins, making good money, but putting most of it into my veins…I was a professional by day, heroin addict by night…and eventually by day.

    Flash forward, I just celebrated 10 years clean, and I currently work as a leader in a recovery ministry at my church. I have also worked in a youth recovery ministry, helping young people drop off their “masks” at church and get real, be honest, and turn over their “junk” to the Lord.

    My parents planted a seed in me, and while I rebelled, I came back to my roots. I really was like the “prodigal son”…Today, I work side-by-side with my father, both in ministry and running our business.

    Not by my own power, but by His power.
