    Maybe the lesson here is that unless you know the person (not an acquaintance of a friend), be sure to remove the firing pin before finishing the sale. At least that way, you could simply respond with “I don’t know, how does it feel to be holding a gun with no firing pin?” as you pull your own gun :-)

    Of course, the bigger lesson is simply to not sell a gun to anyone that you don’t really know. No acquaintances of friends. And if you do plan on doing that, run a background check on the person (yes, you can run a background check on someone without being an FFL).

    Scenarios like this are what the gun grabbers use as evidence for the necessity of “universal background checks”. Private property transfers are already regulated in California, please don’t follow our lead.

    Something tells me most so called “Christians” are just going to view her as a former porn star, not someone that has turned to Christ.

    Most “Christians” need to take a good look in the mirror and realize that everybody, including themselves, makes bad decisions in life. Some are worse than others, but all deserve a chance at redemption. Instead of having the attitude of “she just figured out a different way to make money” why not accept that she may have truly turned toward God? Isn’t that what Christians are suppose to do anyway? Aren’t we suppose to accept everyone, especially if they appear to be repenting?

    “I think we all fall from Grace and learn at some point the truth.”

    I think we all fell from Grace back in the Garden of Eden. Hence the need for a saviour.

    If you’ve got an android phone, I think you can do both :-)

    Just sayin!

    Whoosh! That’s the sound of the parent comment going right over your head.

    I would’ve pulled over the moment I nearly hit that first car. Oh wait, that’s exactly what I did do years ago on the way back to Mexico. My eyes snapped open (luckily the road was straight and we weren’t anywhere near going into oncoming traffic or other lanes) and I instantly decided “That’s enough, we’re pulling off and sleeping”.

    Driving distracted is dangerous and stupid. Take it from those of us that have been lucky enough to not get hurt or hurt anyone else. Don’t do it!

    What’s stopping us? We can all help them. With our prayers and money, we can help them.

    If this guy can start a crowd funding source, so can we. I just have no idea where to send the money.

    Absolutely. Get the State out of marriage and the entire argument falls apart. All unions recognized by the State should be civil unions. You want to get “married”? Go to a church or somewhere that’ll perform a marriage. Otherwise, the State should only be recognizing and enforcing contracts between individuals.

    Not only does that destroy the argument for “gay marriage” but it opens up the door for 3 or more people to enter into a contract together whether they love each other or not. Afterall, why should love be the only criteria necessary to enter into a union?

    “As a gay man, I should hate Melissa and Aaron Klein”

    Why? What have they done to you besides decline to bake a wedding cake for gay couples? These people have done nothing wrong to anyone and they get this attitude from a gay man.

    I would also add, exactly who is twisting the words of Jesus Christ? Love your neighbor as you love yourself, but Jesus didn’t go around saying that it was totally ok for two men to have sexual relationship? Love them sure, but they are sinning and need to repent (as all sinners need to repent). Saying that we should ignore the sin completely is akin to saying we should ignore it when a man and woman live together in sin. We should most certainly not ignore it (I don’t ignore it anyway).

    Maybe, but the same thing happened to the righteous Germans during WWII. They had to keep what they were doing secret from even their neighbors lest they be reported on and found themselves in one of the camps.

    Just because more and more liberals/progressives are starting to hate Christians, doesn’t mean Christians are wrong.

    “Everyone will hate you because of me”.

    Nothing in the Constitution prohibits the display of religious items in the public square.

    If only those on the left could understand this, a whole lot of headaches could be avoided.

    What the hell is a libertarian socialist anyway? Those are two opposing ideologies.

    @Third: Where in the 1st amendment does it say “private”? “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”.

    It doesn’t say you can only do so in the privacy of your home, church, or only on your own land. It simply states “Congress” (meaning the Federal government) shall make no law respecting the establishment or prohibiting the free exercise. There has been no law established and by prohibiting a painting in a school, the government is prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

    Of course Hewitt is shocked. Does anyone really think the president is going to appoint someone that doesn’t follow his ideology anyway?

    There’s nothing earth shattering about this. The Church has a long standing attitude of “think about your own health when receiving communion and when doing the “sign of peace”. During the last major flu season they made sure to reiterate this, but it’s really nothing new. Parishes aren’t even required to distribute the precious blood. The larger ones tend to, but I’m not really surprised that they decided not to for now.

    Again, nothing earth shattering. Move along.

    I doubt you’ll be able to clear it up once and for all. Every time there’s an article on the Catholic Church, the anti-Catholics come out of the woodwork with all the same old arguments. Even telling them what the Church actually does has no effect. They just continue to spew the same old tired arguments.

    But I wish you well :-)

    “The CPSC said it is “likely” that “well in excess of 90 percent” of products already conform to the rule.”

    If that’s the case, we don’t need the rule.

    To answer your question, because we shouldn’t wait for our government to release the rules so we can review them. Looks to me like the market is taking care of it and responding far quicker than any government ever could.

    People are changing over to LED lights as they get cheaper and cheaper. This new rule is completely unnecessary now and you probably won’t even be able to find products that don’t fit the rule in a year or two. This is really just another barrier to new comers into the market. They’ll have to make sure they comply with this rule before being able to sell their products. Don’t think for a moment that if this rule becomes law, they won’t come up with some expensive test to make sure the lights comply.

    It is unnecessary. It is wasteful.

    We are suppose to instruct our children in order to provide a shield of protection. Protecting them without educating them properly doesn’t give them the proper protection when they find themselves without their parents.

    @Slave: Now you’re just being obtuse.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/judeo-

    Combined with the word Christian, meaning follower of Christ.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/christian?s=t

    We don’t need to find the word in scripture for the word to be an accurate representation of our beliefs.

  • October 16, 2014 at 12:16pm

    Maybe you missed the part where it said during non instructional time. You want your kids to study the Quran during “non instructional time” and share it with their friends, have at it. Keep in mind that I’ll be telling my kids about the truth of the Quran so that the next time their friend tries to share it, they simply won’t listen.

    Allah is about conquest. God is about love. That’s pretty much all a kid needs to know to know which one is the truth.

  • [3] October 16, 2014 at 12:13pm

    Really? No one’s attempting to prohibit the free exercise? Is that why a little girl was told she couldn’t write about Jesus being her hero? Because no one was trying to prohibit her free exercise of religion? Or the little girl that was told she couldn’t pray during lunch before eating her food?

    Seems to me that you’re blind to what really happens in classrooms across the country. Or you’re a troll.
