He didn't drop his name. I read the original printing. He was asked by someone else on radio on the Opie and Anthony show. He didn't volunteer the info.

Did he call a press conference to state why he wasn’t going to see the movie, or was he asked the question during an unrelated interview? Or do you even care, because you obviously don’t care that Kyle defamed him to promote his book.
Ventura was defamed by his own hand long before Kyle showed up on the scene. Jesse is just looking for someone to blame for his own stupidity. I guess maybe Kyle did make a mistake in misjudging how punitive such an ass like Jesse (in spite of his 'honorable' military experience) could be.

So that makes it O.K. for Kyle to defame him to promote his book. Got it.
You know it's funny, people defend Ventura by saying "oh he just wants his name cleared and not to be hassled" etc. And yet, here he is again in the limelight... and then well... somehow that explanation doesn't hold water any more and yet they STILL think Jesse is not at fault here. Just boggles my mind. Jesse has made inferences and stated that he was a SEAL many times. When he does that it is 'much ado about nothing.'
And now he says he can't go to any SEAL reunions because he is afraid and has to watch his back. If SEALS are honorable tough guys why would they do that if he is telling the truth? If they aren't, why does he whine about being excluded from them and why did he claim the name for himself? It's astonishing to me how people are such poor judges of character. You can't even watch the two guys talking to a camera without knowing which one is the real self promoter.

I have never understood why it is considered blasphemy that God has a wife and had children. Do you consider your wife and your children to be so common and unremarkable that the idea of it being modeled after a heavenly pattern is repugnant to you?

The problem with taking talking points from anti-mormon web sites is that they cherry pick to support their agenda. For example, the second quote is completely wrong; the actual text doesn’t say that at all. Go look it up. But, more importantly, a few sentences after the made up quote you find this:
“It is true that the earth was organized by three distinct characters, namely, Eloheim, Yahovah, and Michael”
So obviously, Brigham Young did not think that Adam (Michael) was God the Father (Eloheim).

She was trying to get a feel for protestant churches across the country.
Oh how is it that your comments are all the way at the bottom of the page??? I was feeling so discouraged by the misunderstanding that repeated itself over and over in all the comments I've read so far. Thank you for your wisdom. The article was just an article. Not an exhaustive representation of the many facets behind this project.
We set out to compare apples to apples. It wouldn't have made sense to include faith groups who have a very different set of beliefs and cultures. We wouldn't wind up with anything useful to bring positive change.
This isn’t about pitting one denomination against another. This isn’t about choosing who is right and who is wrong. This is about Spiritual growth and personal commitment to what we say we believe to be true. Whether what you believe to be true is different from what I believe to be true is immaterial to the topic. What we believe should show up in the way that we live. And for far too many Christians, it just doesn’t. The longer we let it go without addressing it the worse off we’ll be.
Please sign up on our website. We would love to have your voice in the conversation! I pray God’s blessing on you and those you love.

Wait a minute. 99% of Pastors said their congregants could communicate their message and the congregants couldn’t, but 75% of churches are spiritually healthy?
You caught that too huh?
Maybe what she is saying is that 90% of the churches are in spiritual error so the fact that 90% of the congregants cant repeat the meassage is a good thing and means that 75% of the churches are "spiritually healthy" It's the "glass is half full" spin on disappointing results.
Like the President saying that ISIS, taking over Iraq and Putin invading the Ukraine and Iran developing a new ICBM is proof that his policies are succeeding.
Some people just refuse to see the truth.....
Brigham Young did teach Adam is God
Journal of Discourses 1:50-51 Now hear it, O inhabitants of the earth, Jew and Gentile, Saint and sinner! When our father Adam came into the garden of Eden, he came into it with a celestial body, and brought Eve, one of his wives, with him. He helped to make and organize this world. He is Michael, the Archangel, the Ancient of Days! about whom holy men have written and spoken—He is our Father and our God, and the only God with whom we have to do. Every man upon the earth, professing Christians or non-professing, must hear it, and will know it sooner or later. They came here, organized the raw material, and arranged in their order the herbs of the field, the trees, the apple, the peach, the plum, the pear, and every other fruit that is desirable and good for man; the seed was brought from another sphere, and planted in this earth. The thistle, the thorn, the brier, and the obnoxious weed did not appear until after the earth was cursed. When Adam and Eve had eaten of the forbidden fruit, their bodies became mortal from its effects, and therefore their offspring were mortal. When the Virgin Mary conceived the child Jesus, the Father had begotten him in his own likeness. He was not begotten by the Holy Ghost. And who is the Father? He is the first of the human family; and when he took a tabernacle, it was begotten by his Father in heaven, after the same manner as the tabernacles of Cain, Abel, and the rest of the sons and daughters of Adam

Your argument on rape and incest is sound, on threat to the mother’s life, it is not. We are ethically allowed to take a life in self defense. BTW, it isn’t just a couple of cells, it’s a new member of the species H omo Sapiens. You might want to grab a book on human biology to understand why.
 January 30, 2015 at 3:42pm
Actually, there is no debate on the matter. At conception, a new member of the species h o m o sapiens is formed. Biological fact. What pro-abortionists are actually arguing is that a human life only has value on an arbitrarily defined set of conditions.

I’ve always thought it ironic that a person is pro-choice by denying through violent force a lifetime of choice for another human being.

Translation: Some women have succeeded in persuading me that they should be able to kill their children because something bad happened to them or their life is hard.

The only reason Hitler is considered right-wing is because his brand of socialism included racism, and of course, everyone “knows” that racism is right-wing.
The soviets were just as nationalistic as the Nazis. So that obviously can’t be the defining criteria. Fascism is a form of statism closely related to communism and socialism. The primary difference being that instead of nationalizing industry, in fascism, private ownership is retained, but under complete and absolute government control of day to day operations. So while in Nazi Germany, you could keep your glass business, you could only manufacture what the state told you you could.

Chris Kyle is NOT a fallen SEAL. He did not die in combat. He was killed on a shooting range because of poor judgement. Harsh, but true.
poor judgement is when someone has an opinion based on his /her own ignorance. Kyle was helping what he thought was a troubled veteran with PTSD. You are qutie simply a fool!
 January 30, 2015 at 3:16pm
Nope. Most anti-vaxxers are actually stunningly ignorant, and very few of them are physicians and healthcare providers.

Most Americans had indoor plumbing in the 1940s, and Polio was a nightmare scourge. So much for that argument.

Shoot the Messenger fallacy. Now, how about addressing the actual arguments he made.

The reason your kids didn’t catch any of those diseases is because your neighbors were responsible parents and did vaccinate their children. Your children were protected from your foolish, irresponsible, risky ignorance because of herd immunity provided by your informed, responsible neighbors. You’re welcome.
