Be careful not to box all Christians together. To say, “As a Christian, Matt Walsh thinks….” is unfair. Unless you’ve heard his views on the topic of what happens to non-believers when they die, you shouldn’t automatically assume he shares the fundamentalist idea.
And I see you have chosen the “magic man in the sky” version of God that Atheists like to throw around. I can’t speak for anyone else (anymore than you can) but I know no thinking adults who view God that way. Read G.K. Chesterton, Dr. Peter Kreeft or Dr. Scott Hahn to get a far more rational, thoughtful, insightful and, yes, even logical view of God. Stop assuming everyone is a member of Westboro.
If you think any of those people have good or valid arguments, present them.
There is no logical view of god because in order for something to be 'logical' it must have sound reasoning.
No such thing exists when it comes to gods and if you think otherwise, then present it.
Even though you listed a bunch of writers who support what you said, please give the cliff notes version to blinknight so he doesn't have to do any work for himself.
Save yourself the time and share your insights with people who aren't looking to twist everything you say into some dark and gloomy view they think you should have just because they do.
The authors and theologians you listed all present fantastic views to be read, but you have to be willing to invest some work into study if you want understanding. Anybody who wants you to give them the answers on a silver platter will never appreciate the answers nor remember them when it comes time to be angry again.
“There is no logical view of god because in order for something to be ‘logical’ it must have sound reasoning.” Sound reasoning such as believing something came from nothing like you believe blink? Hate to tell you blink but that is less “logical” then believing a supreme being created it all. I see you are still coming on the Blaze searching for truth. Just open your closed mind blink and you will find it.
I've been listening to religious people spew absolute and complete nonsense for literally years now. As fast as I read, and I read really damn fast, I'm not going to waste my time and money reading books like that.
Why? Anyone can put anything they want in a book and get it published. It doesn't have to be fact checked. It doesn't have to be verified. All you need is publishers willing to put it out there and an audience willing to read it.
I don't run around telling people to read books by prominent atheists to 'really understand' now do I? I wonder why that is. If you can't figure it out, read the paragraph above this one and think about it.
Go ahead, tell me where I said something came from nothing. In fact, literally anytime anyone says 'something came from nothing' my response has always been 'science doesn't say something came from nothing'
It's you who thinks a magic man waved his hand and made everything pop into existence from nothing, not me. That makes so much sense and is just totally logical.
'I don't know, it's hard to understand, so magic man did it'
And as usual I will show you why you can't even use your own standard: If something can't come from nothing then what made your god? Oh that's right, something can come from nothing when it's "god".
'If you are going to say god always exited, then skip a step and just say the universe has always exited'
Nothing we have yet uncovered indicates the presence of or the need for a god.

Matt is Catholic. Just sayin’. I doubt this article was condemning them.
 July 5, 2016 at 5:42pm
I’ve read the transcript myself. Matt is not wrong and characterized it quite nicely. You’re hoping people will assume he is wrong, just by making this statement?
It's weird how many people have read transcripts, the Bible, the Qu'ran and all kinds of other books but apparently had their eyes closed or nodded off there just for a moment.

He’s used “you’re” and “your” correctly in every article he’s written so this was obviously a typo that went unedited. So if that was your attempt to cast doubt on his assertions and intelligence, it was feeble.
You really should learn the difference between a typo and actually misspelling a word.
If your Perfect like Albert go a-head and join in on hated Mattt Walsh, but for the rest of us you’all can go about you’re business as if it was usual.
With “feeble” being a major understatement. I am a grammar Nazi. I am SO tired of the lazy writing, spelling and grammar from otherwise intelligent people I see all over the internet. I’ve read many of Matt’s blogs and articles, and you would be hard pressed to find anyone to top him. Here’s the deal, when you write for a living, a few typos and errors are going to slip through every now and then. They just are. If that’s the best you can do with finding fault, then you need to go back under the rock you crawled out of.

But then we’re back to the argument that you MUST support the Republican. Many conservatives have opposed such logic for years. Why MUST we vote for Trump just because he’s the nominee? Even if we think he’d make an awful president?
May 10, 2016 at 5:58pm
No, Matt blames Trump supporters for nominating a bad candidate that, in his view, won’t win the general election.
May 10, 2016 at 5:54pm
To be fair, there are a LOT of people on FNC who oppose Trump. Megyn Kelly’s well documented “feud” is one. Charles Krauthammer (Special Report) speak out against him a LOT. As does George Will. Shepherd Smith clearly doesn’t take Trump seriously, making him out to be a joke. I could go on. Not everyone there likes Trump. But O’Reilly and Hannity certainly do.

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.”
