@ItsCalledTheRight “Separation of church and state” is encased in quotes precisely because it is not in the Constitution. It is a construct of those opposed to religious freedom.

Think again Proverbs. “Separation of church and state” is pretty much a one way proposition. Have you ever wondered why the Founding Fathers never put anything in the Constitution about marriage? It is because at the time of the founding, marriage was almost exclusively a religious rite. If a couple wanted to be married they went to the Church not to the government. When government became involved in marriage it was one of the most egregious violations of “separation of church and state” ever committed. The state stole what belonged to the churches and made it their own. But then again it only works one way. Now with the SCOTUS decision, marriage becomes and entirely governmental ordinance. I think one could now make the case that it is in violation of “separation of church and state” for churches to be involved in marriages at all. After all we can not be mentioning God in the administering of governmental ordinances.
I think the best solution at this point is for the churches to say they will no longer perform civil marriages, but that after a couple has a civil marriage, if they want to, they can have a church rite to solemnize their marriage before God. That way if a church wants to be involved in gay marriage they can. If they don’t they don’t have to.

One thing everyone that thinks government could better serve the poor/homeless etc. better than the churches is this; If you take $1000 and give it to a church for charity, you may loose $100 to overhead and $900 would actually go to needy recipients. because the majority of labor is provided by volunteers Church charity is highly efficient.. If you give the same $1000 to the government for charity the government has to pay federal and local administrators, then it has to pay for local workers to distribute the food etc. by the time all of the government employees are payed, $950 will have been payed for overhead and $50 will finally end left for the recipients. As everyone knows government is about as efficient as a car that gets 2 miles per gallon.

Since “In God We Trust” specifies no specific religious entity it in no way violates the constitution. You may worship Christ, Budda, Alah, the almighty dollar, mother earth, yourself, or if so miss guided, Obama. “In God We Trust” serves everyone equally well. Even if you are atheist and worship nothing then nothing is your god. So suck it up.
Budda (Buddha) is not a God and has never been a God. Buddha is simply a title that means that the person has become enlightened (awakened one). When a Buddha dies, they do not become a God and they are not a Saint or a Savior, they are dead. Most (though not all) Buddhists are actually Atheists (i.e. no belief in a God).

I am beginning to wonder if all these botched lethal injections are not intentional.
I think a more productive and perhaps even more humane method would be exsanguination.
Anyone that has given blood knows the needle ***** to give blood is essentially painless.
Instead of stopping at a pint let the subject bleed out.
In a matter of minutes the subject will get light headed and pass out. Some people giving blood have passed out after the first pint.
Let the last act of a deserving criminal be a productive 4 to 5 liter donation to the local blood bank.
It would be even more productive to put them in a medically induced coma and let them donate any and all healthy organs as well as blood.
I know this all sounds a bit or even a lot macabre but why not let a executed criminal’s last act be something positive especially if they are open to the option?
I've thought the same thing. Subject lies flat on a table, one needle in their neck, the get sleepy and/or light headed, and they fall asleep. A few more minutes and their blood oxygen level falls too low to sustain brain function, brain stops controlling major organs (heart) and they die.
Aside from the initial needle puncture and getting a little chilly before they pass out, it would be utterly painless.

I was watching the movie “Avatar” the other night and after it finished I came to the realization that the people of the Western United States are the “Na Vi” and the US Government is the fascist corporate raiders depicted in the movie.

By preventing or prohibiting religious postings by the cadets the military would in fact be giving preferential treatment to the Atheist faith. You can’t tell me it doesn’t take just as much faith to believe you will not be called before God to account for your evil doings as it does to believe you will. I think this is the crux of the whole Atheist complaint against any exhibition of any other faith. It causes to have to consider that they may be wrong and they just do not like having their faith tested. In other words they are religious weaklings. People of other faiths get tested daily, sometimes hourly.
We need to start taking the attack against the removal of crosses etc. on that basis. That doing so gives preferential treatment to the Atheist faith.

Massachusetts Department of Children & Families has done for Justina what ObamaCare has done to healthcare for the rest of us. Complete bungling and disastrous outcome.

Give the atheists chaplains. It would be an admission and establish that atheism is in fact a religion just as Christianity is. After all it takes faith to believe there is no God just as it does to believe there is.
It would also mean that all of the laws against prayer are unconstitutional because those laws establish atheism as the state religeion. Which they do.

The whole problem with public breast feeding is the puerile mentality of our society, where people, especially men, cannot mature past the teen perception of breasts being only for their stimulation and pleasure. Babies must be fed and by all studies the best way to feed them is with mothers’ milk. The women with the confidence and ability should be commended. Of course being discrete about it is a courtesy to those haven’t grown up yet.
Come on people let’s all grow up.

I wonder if we would have better luck if we elected Martian rats instead of the rats we are electing now.
May 29, 2013 at 2:49pm
Yeah. I wonder if the Martians elect their rats to political office the way we do.

The kid was darned lucky he wasn’t body slammed face first into the sidewalk, handcuffed and arrested for interfering with an officer getting his soft drink.

We think that what the Castro brothers did is atrocious, and it is. Just realize this. The same kind of domination and subjugation is what the Obama administration has in mind for this country.
They want to keep us locked up in our houses and if let out it will only be on a leash. The rape will be economic (Taxes and fees on anything and everything), although I don’t think anyone’s wife or daughters will be safe from the “Brown Shirts” or the Sheiks.

First. Hahn is the husband of the murdered bride and was attacked himself. He is also the Democrat fundraiser. Broyhill is the crazed attacker. It would certainly be helpful if you had enough reading comprehension to properly comment on a story.
Second. Although it is not mentioned, by his actions, Broyhill demonstrates that he is probably an Obama voting Democrat, because he obviously can’t stand to see someone else be happy and successful without going into a demented rage.

Why weren’t the teacher and participating administrators arrested for civil rights violations.
That is what needs to happen now. Sue them and then arrest them.
