JPMadison, you must be unaware that not all Christians believe that scripture supports the concept of man’s ‘free will’. That said, neither does it support the concept of ‘fate’ held by Muslims.

If we don’t stand up “en masse” to resist this it won’t be long before all college admissions tests require a Common Core education whether your child was taught in public, private or home school. Here in Alabama the Republicans are spearheading it and in Mobile it’s not only in the public schools, it’s also being implemented by the Archdiocese.

If Christianity was nothing more than a bunch of “interesting anecdotes” then he would be right, but those who know HIS voice know the truth; HIS kingdom has no end.
Eric-n-OTown, thanks for trying but I still got the same thing.

H E Clay – Your assertion that “white privilege” does not correlate to “self-hatred” and “guilt” is correct. The only “whites” who peddle that nonsense are progressives. Conservatives and others who abhor the institutional racism foisted on their fellow black Americans by the progressives in both parties feel no remorse for being white or being privileged (if, in fact, they truly are either). However, they do feel they are being attacked, not by black Americans, but by progressives who hate Christianity, capitalism and freedom under the guise of “white privilege”, income inequality, “war on women” and a multitude of other untenable leftist nonsense. I live in the deep south and see more of those so-called “privileged white” living in run-down trailer communities than I see non-whites living in similar circumstances. Even the middle class which is supposed to constitute the peak of the bell curve is living paycheck to paycheck. Progressives have finally come into their own with the election of our president who gave them the confidence to step out and assert their world view on the largely ignorant populace of this country. Eventually most of us will wake up when we’ve come to the point where we’ve had enough and this craziness will be stopped.

Woodyee, do you have another link? Error 404 is all I got

Why does every story like this refer to the “homeland”. Has anyone else noticed over the past few years that no one ever refers to the “mainland” anymore? Homeland has an imperial connotation to it, implying that we control many outlying land masses.
Puerto Rico, Guam, Alaska, Hawaii, US Virgin Islands. ... we own a few.. just sayin..
Seems when I was a kid, the Homeland was the Nazi's turf.
For decades it was "Mainland"....then some ignorant Media nut (presume) changed the rules...

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”! Why don’t these knuckleheads read this to anyone who tries to shut their rights down citing a non-existent “separation of church and state” clause?

Read the context. Christ was simply ensuring that that”which is written must be accomplished in me (Christ)”. Shortly after that while praying on the Mount of Olives, he was taken by a throng sent by the Chief Priest. Peter then took one of those swords and cut off the ear of one of the Chief Priest’s slaves. In Mt. 26:52 Christ admonishes Peter, telling him to put up his sword, saying “For all who draw the sword will die by the sword”.
Don’t mislead little ones by spreading lies about Christ’s intent.

whitechristianpatriot, it’s people like you that give Christianity a bad name. Where in the bible do you get the idea that committing suicide consigns one to hell? And do you even know what hell is? Study the original words translated into hell and you’ll discover that you’ve been lied to by many preachers who are no better than politicians who think they know more than the rest of us.

He’s praying to himself. He simply took scripture that referenced God and applied it himself (mankind). For example, he said “And we can say with confidence that it is in seeking the counsel of our conscience that we find the beginning of wisdom. It is in the exercise of our duty as citizens that we find the beginning of knowledge.” That is a rewrite of “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” He said, “We as citizens, the beginning and the end — the Alpha and Omega of our destiny”. That is a re-wording of a passage from Revelation where the Christ said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” He says he doesn’t believe in God, but in effect his words are clear statements that he is god.

A bigger problem is that there are 41,000 different denominations/groups worldwide (according to the World Christian Encyclopedia). This means that even though they are reading (and quoting) the same bible, they are coming to different doctrinal conclusions – otherwise they would all believe the same things and not be divided into so many different groups.
I respectfully disagree, nonwinger. Just because there are 41,000 different denominations/groups worldwide means the Work of the Lord is on-going. All those people studying, worshiping, and praying to God is NOT a problem! Any differences in doctrine is just a result of the failings of humans; we are all God's children. I would think the bigger challenge is to get everyone else to love God. One day at a time and all according to God's Plan. God Bless you.
Oh the superiority of Islam! All competitive versions have been destroyed, so all read the same Koran. If you disagree, they kill you!
So much for competitive thought!
So, is Islam proof of a "correct" religion because it has so few sects?

Emasculating men and empowering women has been going on for a long time. I remember watching the old Blondie and Dagwood movies that first came out in the late 1930′s.

So instead of encouraging gun safety they just want to take them away from us? That seems to put gun owners in the same light as naive children. No worse, because children can be taught.

Aren’t we helping Mexico build a fence on their southern border?
April 11, 2014 at 3:35pm
“And I think immigrants make wonderful patriots because they’re grateful to the country that enables them to help themselves and their families.” Obviously Mr. Will has never been on the border. I have a son working for Customs at a border crossing who tells me that Mexicans, in particular, have absolute no interest in assimilating into the culture of this country, refuse to speak English and proclaim an intent to retake what they believe was stolen from them. It is progressives like George and Jeb Bush who clearly don’t recognize the rule of law.

What part of the Constitution is the FFRF citing to support their erroneous claim. Did Congress secretly pass a bill to provide support to Chief Roper and his fellow prayers?
I can never find that part either. Really wish these people would show it to us.
It's the stupid argument that will not die.
The Establishment clause is not limited to congress, and if you think that it is, then you also believe firmly and absolutely that your state and local government can over ride free speech and freedom of the press.
