Yep but the government is more then happy to take away your rights to "protect" you from the scary terrorists.

Yeah, I get y’all’s point, but if it weren’t for his scientific achievement, no one would give his opinions on religion a minute’s thought.

Well there’s really no one to hold the media up to high journalistic standards. I’m guessing 95% of professors in journalism schools across the country today are Marxists like the rest of the humanities.
They're products of decades of leftist thought in our colleges. Particularly fields like journalism. They have been trained to believe that "the cause" is more important than the obligations of professional journalism.
That cycle only ends when the liberal saturation of the education system is reversed.

He’s one of those silly humanists too and there’s were the real division should be. Individualism vs. altruism. However the Blaze really backs the latter.
 November 25, 2015 at 11:47am
No offense taken, just don’t say this type of religious divisiveness is any more noble than Al Sharpton’s race baiting. They’re both just fueling collectivist divisions.

No one cares about little environmental damage around the earth’s anus. The entire ME smells like a fart anyway.

Ya know, Blaze… He’s a famous biologist/scientist too. Just saying. It’s a shame you all have to pigeon hole everyone based on their mysticism or lack thereof.
Nonsense. His public fame comes from the books he's written on atheism vs. religion. The public wouldn't know of him but for that. He's not famous because of biologist/scientist work.
Peyton Manning does a lot of TV commercial work. But do we need to say, "Peyton Manning, the NFL QB and TV Commercial actor?" Of course not. We simply say what he is most famous for, Peyton Manning the NFL QB.
Stop taking offense. You're being ridiculous.
He was also born in Nairobi, but I doubt they will be referring to him as famous African Richard Dawkins anytime soon.
but when it is only his atheism that he uses when addressing the general public we are left with what he is known for. in the immortal words of Ace Ventura
Ace: [Ouda is translating to the Wachootoo] Did you just refer to me as "White Devil"?
Ouda: This how they know you.
Ace: Leave that part out from now on.

I could stop calling her a warmongering corporatist **** too, but she’d still be a warmongering corporatists ****.

Hellz yeah, Spicoli. We all know the wise men actually brought fat nuggets of kush instead of frankincense and myrrh and they got there 4:20… Peace brah!
 November 24, 2015 at 3:47pm
That’s sure how it sounds to an atheist, and it alienates potential political allies. Which is a shame since objectivists put forth the best counter arguments against Marxism and fascism. Perhaps that’s the intent since neoconservatives are the heir apparent of fascists.

Darn toot’n! And yes, the more organized an “atheist” organization seems to be, the more likely they’re just Bolsheviks. There are still relatively few atheists libertarian or objectivists out there to drown out their statist counterparts.
 November 24, 2015 at 3:09pm
Oh spare me. The writing’s been on a wall for a while now. Beck isn’t a prophet.
Atheists are not lacking of faith. Their faith is different. They have faith that there is no God. It's a faith because there is no direct evidence to support their claim, but they have conviction they are right.
Just like members of any religion.
Your reasoning is massively flawed. The fact that someone refuses to believe in something becasue there is absolutely no evidence that that thing exists isn't faith.
Definition of faith:
Faith is complete confidence or trust in a person or thing; or a belief not based on proof.
If I were to say, "I believe unicorns are real," that would be an act of faith. If I say, "I don't believe in unicorns becasue there is no evidence of their existence", that is reason.

We are better than the atheists because we’re more humble… How can anyone miss the glaring hypocrisy of that statement?
Angry, your right, a better choice would be "we are better because we are not afraid of believers , like the quivering nihilistic aheists.
Religious nutjobs aren't big on recognizing hypocrisy. If they did, they wouldn't be religious.
Anyone that has faith in liberty and individualism is alright by me. I would feel more secure a bit if I thought they truly believed if they fomented tyranny, fascism, and totalitarianism they would be punished in a lake of fire after their death. The problem is that very few of these organized "atheists" are libertarian like individuals. Most replace a metaphysical deity with the worship of The State, and their sole goal is to spread the worship and reliance upon The State.
That's actually not what she said.
"Me, me, meeeeeee!!! I'm the most humble. Yes, the most humble one is me. All you people who are less humble are losers."
I am a Christian, but had not thought of it like that. It really is funny and hypocritical. I do understand what she was saying, but even some sections of Christianity, I would be uncomfortable with them in charge. But would take any Christian over a Muslim. My prejudice. I think their religion is not compatible with the Constitution or our way of life, and I love the USA even with all her foibles. She is still the best country in the world. I really think all Americans should go live in a foreign country for a year or two. I did and it changed my whole view point on my country. I kissed the trees when I got home. There is no place like the US.

I’m not so sure that him switching to the Republicans because they’ve given his people more is the image the GOP wants to portray, is it? Y’all still know that the government can’t give away what it doesn’t steal first, right?
It's his use of the but, that shows why we don't need a Secretary of Education!
Maybe they could do like the town in Wisconsin is planning to do: make any bullying -- i.e. any thing you say that I don't like -- illegal and carrying a fine of $100.
Liberalism is worse than a mental disorder: most mental disorders can at least be controlled with treatment.
Just : Good point . We are , indeed, suffering from the ' But ' Far Left crowd !
"BUT" I have been secretary for SEVEN long failing years...."BUT" I am only following the orders of Prez Barry....."BUT" yes, I need a good hard kick in my BUTT
Maybe if the poor kiddies would grow up, and stop feeling bad about hearing something that upsets them, like, you really didn't win, you lost. Then, they would be ready for the real world. But, I blame their parents for sheltering them in the basement and never ever letting them be disappointed. I for one would like tickets to the first time these china dolls get into a dustup, get fired, and learn they really aren't' the center of the universe. To quote Cartman, "Mm, your tears are so yummy and sweet!"
butthead seems to be the most fitting term for him.
Who's feeling unsafe ?... A group of agitators ?.. Those truly unsafe are anyone who opposes the thug mobs.
I can't say I didn't see this coming when I posted this over the weekend:
There is no such thing as a slippery slope when it comes to freedom of speech. You either have the freedom to speak whatever is on your mind, whatever it might be or how vulgar it might be, or you do not. There is no middle ground to concede in compromise.
You either have the freedom to write the literature you would ever possibly like to write, or do not.
You either have the freedom to read the words another person deems to put to the pen, or you do not.
If that pen is digitally composed, or if that pen is the voice coming from a man makes no difference. If those words contain a vulgar racial epithet or they are a drawing of Muhammad makes no difference.
As soon as a country adopts any kind of censorship to the freedom of speech, there is no freedom of speech; there is no slippery slope.
So to the Education Czar that suggested here in this article of ending the American government's acceptance of mankind's natural right to freely speak her/his mind: I hope you understand you are treading very closely to declaring war on the American people and the American people know it and are ready if needed to guard the self evident rights our forefathers sacrificed to secure.
Arne Duncan, you are a disgrace to America.
He didn’t specify, but I think that Black Lives Matter and similar groups are intimidating people …
“But when young people don’t feel safe, feel absolutely isolated, feel absolutely intimidated, made to not feel welcome — that’s something else,” he said.
That sounds like they should be coming down on these “protesters”, right?
I think Beck called it right on this one:
Terrorism starts with “terror” not guns or bombs. Threats and intimidation are tools of fear mongers as much as death is. Those who seek to rule through fear – whether they want to rule a country, a college, a city block, or a single house – must always be opposed.
"Tolerance" does not extend to terrorism.
His speech hurt me. Lucky is is stepping down.
I have two to three college kids on my payroll in the summer time. One is home this week for thanksgiving. I am taking him to the range. He loves to shoot and we are going today. that is my conduit to keep dialog open and the discussion on current events open. If you know someone that is college age you better talk with them while there is time. Disdain for a group or generation won’t save America. If you love your country then empower yourself to save it.
The problem is that the groups complaining about non-existent persecution are the ones who are bullying everyone else that either disagrees with them or won't participate with their agenda. So this idiots words mean nothing - because he hasn't stopped the open and confrontational activities by these race baiters. He doesn't deserve the job, fire him!
worse than that. These are progressive liars and bullies. Funny only the things offensive to progressives is ever protected. BIAS????? funny they don't even entertain the notion THEY might be biased.
This whole thing is as ginned up as "the war on women". Poor widdle college kids don't feel safe on campus. It's ridiculous.
“But when young people don’t feel safe, feel absolutely isolated, feel absolutely intimidated, made to not feel welcome — that’s something else,” he said....
...unless, of course, the isolation, intimidation and made to feel "not welcome" comes from BLM or another protected "organized" community...
Remember that this is our openly gay Ed Sec. He’s not committed to any “free speech” that involves criticism of his chosen lifestyle!
