The test for whether or not a lawsuit is ridiculous: How many people will wish THEY went through the victim’s “suffering”? I (for one) would gladly suffer a sprained ankle EVERY DAY FOR A YEAR to get $5,000,000.

“As TheBlaze previously reported, it isn’t likely that the Catholic Church will change its theological views on sex, divorce and homosexuality…”
Not likely? Actually it’s NOT POSSIBLE. No priest, bishop or even POPE have the authority to change such Catholic doctrine. The most they can do is find new ways to show that it’s relevant and meaningful to today’s world.
in catholic law and doctrine, the Pope may change whatever he wishes. He is devine in the Catholic Doctrine. Do your own research.

An upside down flag is not NECESSARILY anti-American or anti-military. It is the symbol for “nation in distress”… a sentiment that even many patriotic Americans agree with.
(Having said that, I have no idea what these particular protestors were trying to say. It may very well be an anti-American, anti-military display in this case.)

$1.5 million over not getting enough napkins? Sounds reasonable.

She never said she was persecuted. Neither did the article. In fact, the opposite point was made with the line: “But considering her Emmy Award-winning performance as Debra Barone on “Everybody Loves Raymond” and her current role as Frankie Heck on “The Middle” — now in its fifth season — Heaton doesn’t seem to be too bogged down when it comes to success.”

So you people are angry that Beck wants peaceful change? You’d rather start killing? Who do you intend to shoot? And how will that help?
In case you haven’t noticed, the left WANTS you to start shooting. Because then they can label all conservatives as terrorists! That’s why they jump to conclusions every time there’s violence and blame it on the Tea Party. They hope it’s true. That want you to get violent. Are you seriously planning to play right into their hands????
Jesus Christ, Gandhi, MLK, Jr. These were peaceful people who achieved huge changes. You don’t have to resort to death and destruction.

Atheists continue to think that evolution education is the best way to battle theology. That only works on evangelicals and fundamentalists. Globally, most Christians (Catholics) stress that reason and faith go together. And they have no issue with the idea that plants and animals evolve. They have no issue with the big bang. They have no issue with science. One of my MANY scientific heros is Gregor Mendel. (Look him up. He founded genetics and was Catholic.) So books like “Evolution For Dummies” won’t work on most Christians… Only on American fundamentalists.

“The Pope should stay out of economic matters.”
1- His opinion is based on 2,000 years of time tested Catholic doctrine. He didn’t just make it up from thin air. Learn from history. (And his comment about the glass magically getting bigger is TRUE.)
2- Just because you’re anti-Capitalist does not make you automatically make you pro socialist or pro-communist. There are further alternatives you never hear about from the MSM. Catholic social teaching is actually ANTI-Communist.
As for Max Jones… You know nothing about the history between the Vatican and Germany, other than what you’ve read in books written by leftwing **holes who claim the Pope aided Hitler during WW2. This has gotten debunked THOUSANDS OF TIMES. But you keep reporting it as fact. In truth the Vatican ran an underground railroad saving far more Jews than Oscar Schindler. So if he was a hero, so was “Hitler’s Pope.”
Denny’s? Well, why not? The American people ARE about to be slammed.

Have you (or any of the other idiots online) actually taken the time to READ what the Pope wrote? And not just a blogger talking about it? Because he did not (and has never) advocated for a government takeover of the economy. Ever! He wants a true ownership society where everyone can own land and part of a business. The means of production would belong to all the people instead of just a few. It’s about local power and control. Small businesses. Etc. That’s not Communism. Or Socialism. It’s not Capitalism either. It’s something the world has never really tried. The Pope opposes big business AND big government because both make slaves of men. But you are brainwashed (like everyone else) to think any opposition to Capitalism is automatically Communism.

When was the 1st Amendment repealed? Are ‘Freedom of Speech’ and ‘Freedom of the Press’ illegal on public property too? If not, then why is religion an affront to the Constitution? It’s protected under the same damn amendment… Correct? Hm? Any Atheist wanna answer me on that?
And don’t give me this “establishment clause” bull**** either. Because there’s no way a nativity scene is equal to the enforcement of a national religion. It’s merely an example of tolerance. Just as we tolerated a bunch of Occupy protestors living in public parks for a few months. Did that mean the government was endorsing the Occupiers? No. They merely tolerated them for a while. Just as they should tolerate Christmas decorations for a month or two. It doesn’t establish anything. Nobody is FORCED to become a Christian any more than they were forced to become Occupiers.
The constitution IS violated, however, when laws are passed that obstruct religion. Note to easily offended Atheists: Please re-read the Constitution. It’s supposed to protect citizens from the very laws that you are trying to get passed.

Capitalism is not the only system that grants property rights, freedom, incentive, and the rule of law. People need to think outside the box. There ARE more choices than those offered by Republicans and Democrats (capitalism or socialism).
Catholic social teaching chooses the G.K. Chesterton / Hilaire Belloc approach: A true ownership society where everyone owns a piece of a business and some land. But we’re told by our “leaders” (and online writers) that we MUST choose between big business or big government. Become a slave to one or the other.

I can only assume the definition of “terrorist” these days is “anyone who disagrees with me.”

Why would anybody be angry about this? If I see a squirrel fighting with a snake, I’m supposed to break it up?!

“a more youthful, “hipper” direction”… Because the hip youth are always buying suits?

That’s two strikes for ESPN. The first was during football season… This is the same wussy network that apologized for one of their sportscasters calling a model attractive. It’s PC-TV. They should stop airing football and try ballet instead.

“…and our society’s strict gender rules…”
Like using separate restrooms?
It’s funny how I am now an “extremist” because I think people should accept themselves for who they are. “Be yourself. Love yourself.” And if you think you’re a cat trapped in a human’s body, you should seek therapy to help you embrace your humanity. Likewise, if you think you are a woman “trapped in a man’s body” you should seek therapy to help you embrace your gender… As in the one you were actually born with and not the one you “feel.” I know, I know… It’s considered BIGOTED for me to say such things. I’m an “extremist.”
But cutting off or tucking in body parts, taking hormone pills/injections and spending thousands of dollars to change your body is… not… extreme? That’s rational? How is THAT more loving and compassionate than saying, “Be yourself. Accept yourself the way you are. Be proud of who you/what you are. Love yourself”?
What’s next? Plastic surgery for children who dislike their noses? Oh wait….

This is a weird time. A time when conservatives are based and hated for supporting that which is legal and opposing that which is illegal. Think about the absurdity of this:
Guns = Legal… But if you own one or support the right to own one, you’re evil.
Illegal Immigration = Obviously it’s Illegal. Yet if you support the immigration laws, you’re evil. (Laws that even democrats never suggest doing away with. They keep them… even occasionally enforce them. But don’t you DARE support them!)

How does a teacher or principal expel a student and not feel guilty about it, when the student clearly has no malicious intent? Like the little girl with the pink “Hello Kitty” candy dispenser that happened to be shaped like a gun. She got kicked out. Or the boy with the pop tart shaped like a gun. Do the teachers who turn these kids in feel good about themselves for getting such “dangerous criminals” out of the classroom?
More importantly, what about the school boards and state officials who passed the insane zero tolerance laws? Are they proud of themselves for getting good, ordinary, nice kids expelled? Do they honestly think it’s reasonable that the kids have words like “terrorist” placed on their permanent records?
You can even get expelled for imitating violent behavior on the playground… Meaning, if you act out a scene from the latest episode of “Power Rangers” or “Ninja Turtles” with your friends, you’re deemed a criminal and kicked out.
Are the legislators pleased with the results of their stupid law?

Before conservatives start calling for the legal torture of AMERICANS, we should remember that there are ***holes in our government who think Evangelicals, Catholics and anyone who listens to talk radio is a domestic terrorist.
