    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.

    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.

    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.

    I’d just like to see free speech recognized in every school instead of reading stories about administrators and teachers that use fear and intimidation in an effort to get students to stop reading their bible or stop believing in God. How about we start there, mmkay?

  • [1] October 16, 2014 at 12:05pm

    Exactly. I saw the headline and thought “That would’ve been nice to know yesterday or sooner”. We have a few kids bibles at home that we could’ve given to the kids to take to school for the day.

    I guess in hindsight I could just ask them every day if they want to take their bible to school. That way they already have it without waiting for a “take your bible to school” day.

    My response to that is “Of course they should be allowed to come. Let everyone hear how hateful they are. Let everyone see how hateful they are. I don’t like them at all, but they enjoy the same rights as any other American. As long as they don’t hurt anyone, of course they should be able to come here and speak their minds. That is the beauty of our 1st amendment protections.”

    Fight speech with more speech.

    I love this! Madison nailed it on so many things!

    California passes 1000+ new laws every year and they effect everyone in one way or another. The media reports it and the ones that directly effect people and it’s just accepted as the way it has to be despite how ridiculous it is (1000+ new laws, every year). Texas passed less than 20 last year.

    People wonder why I hate this state.

    It’s cool, but it’ll be cooler once it’s hand held. Most laser systems are still truck and ship based. When it’s small like in Terminator, then it’ll be truly awesome.

    You mean The Crusades? Those were a direct response to Muslim aggression in the region. The Crusades stopped because they pushed the Muslim’s back and kept them from expanding.

    What we need is a Jeffersonian style response where we say “Enough is enough”. Push them back. Sign a treaty. If they break it, do it again. Keep doing it until they get the hint but stop cow towing to them as though they’re just peaceful people that want to live in harmony with everyone else because they aren’t.

    @Fortune: The OT is just as much Judaism as it is Christianity. If you believe otherwise then you’re leaving about half of Christianity out. Christians take the whole thing, not just the first half as Jews do.

  • October 14, 2014 at 12:36pm

    Yes because the only thing we’re not subject to is the old Mosaic rituals of having to wash oneself before eating or not being able to eat shellfish (those are but two examples). The 10 commandments are still enforced because it was said “Keep my commandments”.

    Islam doesn’t mean peace. It means submit. Islam is a religion of submission.
