As Christians, we shouldn’t be watching ‘Game of Thrones’ or anything else that glorifies sex and violence. Period.
As Christians, where do we draw the line? We wouldn’t watch pornography but we would watch something that just glances the line of pornography? When I read the comments arguing that it’s okay to watch ‘Game of Thrones’, I am reminded of 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV):
“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
Is partaking in something that glorifies evil and sex glorifying God? In my opinion, it doesn’t. My wife and I have watched ‘Game of Thrones’ up until this season. We then felt the Holy Spirit tugging at us to stop watching it. We listened. We no longer watch shows that are laced with sex and violence. Will it make it tough to watch TV? Sure. And maybe that’s how it should be. How much time, as Christians, do we spend watching entertainment when we should be studying the Word? And I’m as guilty as anyone of doing the same thing.
Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world and the people living in this world love what it has to offer rather than distancing themselves from it. I certainly hope things change soon. As Christians, we need to get the message out to those who have yet to hear it. However, there aren’t enough of us out there.

I believe Glenn supports Israel because this administration won’t. Israel is surrounded by countries that want the Jewish people wiped from the face of the earth. That’s not going to happen because God said it won’t. God said that those who curse Israel will be cursed. Glenn is a great supporter of Israel as am I and my family. It’s sad when people write defamatory stories about others without any proof, regardless of whether or not it’s an opinion piece.

Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and look at their track record for 2012.

You can’t help but get a tear in your eye at this story. Very inspiring.

This is an example of what Glenn calls ‘shark bumps.’ As near as I can tell, they don’t have the authority to make us freeze and we can continue to walk away. They don’t have the authority to stop us.

From what I understand, France has increased their tax rate on the wealthy to 75%. The wealthy have begun leaving the building, thus proving that increasing the tax rate doesn’t increase revenue.

This is most definitely a power grab by the RNC and I don’t like it one bit. This goes beyond anything I have see from the Republican party and smacks the very foundation of a federalist for of government right in the face.
I think the RNC just shot themselves in the foot.

Do you they make donuts and can they ship them? I would love to order some!
Thank you for standing up for what you believe. It’s sad when liberals can support gay marriage and that’s okay but if conservatives don’t support gay marriage, we’re vilified.
The double standard is alive and well. Wow, that’s sounds like a great name for a doughnut or pastry. Yummy.
You are right, but schools have been telling kids that this is a democracy for years.
Anybody who wants to know the difference should google "youtube American Forms of government"

I don’t see anything in the story that says city hall will not allow other displays.
That being said, I think the ACLU is completely wrong on this. If they truly had grounds for this, then why aren’t they suing the government due to the fact that the US Supreme Court building has a display of the Ten Commandments there? Or the fact that Congress has an opening prayer before each session (I believe they still do)?
This country was founded on Christian beliefs. The Bible was used as a text book in schools back in the 1700s. The ‘separation of Church and State’ is a myth perpetuated by people who misinterpreted the letter sent to the Danbury Baptists by Thomas Jefferson.
If you take out the religious aspect of the Ten Commandments, I think ‘Thou shalt not kill’ is a pretty good thing to live by.

I see a mix of comments here, both positive and negative. Regardless of the content of any criticism she will receive, she is getting exactly what she wanted: attention.

At least it’s free to go on the beaches in LA. Here is NJ, we have to pay to not have fun.
We have to pay to access the imported beaches at our lakes here. There are only 2 & that didn't represent enough money for them, so they now make you pay if you park alongside any of the roadways to look at the water. We pay for the view, oh yes we do. Haven't been out there in a while. My husband says there was talk of them closing the lake & he asked one of them if they were going to cover it with a tarp or what? They responded they didn't know yet... Christ save us.

Locked, the article doesn’t say ‘Christian’ prayer. It just says ‘prayer.’
I have no problem with this bill at all. There is no such thing a ‘separation of church and state.’ I believe prayer should be allowed in schools as long as ALL religions are included.

I’m amazed that he still thinks he’s relevant.
The overuse of the word ‘racist’ has broadened the meaning so much that it’s true meaning is overshadowed by it’s political misuse. I didn’t vote for Obama because I am a conservative and he is not. In fact, he is so far to the left, that he can actually see the backside of the right on the horizon.
A number of progressives on the left continue to call everyone on the right racist. But what is their game by calling us that? Do they want to try and shame us into voting for Obama in 2012?
One thing is clear: the Obama administration can’t run on their record. As a matter of fact, they can’t actually run on anything they’ve done because everything they’ve done has made this country worse. All they have left is the ‘race card.’
When it comes to a fifty two card deck, the 2008 election put the Joker in the White House; the rest of us are now looking for our Ace of Spades.

I completely agree with Impudence. I have been a Chevy guy all my life but when they took bailout money, I decided to look elsewhere. I looked at Ford and saw the 2012 Focus and decided to take a chance. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The Focus delivers close to 41 mpg for me (the SE model with the SFE package) and has been running well since I bought it in June.

I’m amazed at the firestorm that has been touched off by this story.
What bothers me the most is that we are allowing atheists to control the conversation in this country. A little more than 80% of this country are practicing Christians and yet we are bowing to those who aren’t Christians.
I don’t care what religion anyone practices or doesn’t practice. I am a Christian and I celebrate Christmas. What I do care about is another group dictating to me what I will celebrate because they are bothered by it.
The ‘separation of church and state’ that the article alluded to is a fallacy. Read what David Barton has written about this. The atheist’s platform is based on this and they are flat out incorrect.
