What’s the consequence for not believing? It’s hell, no?

You’re confusing Christianity with deism. It’s pretty well known that a majority of the founding fathers were deists. Have you read “age of reason” by Thomas Payne? He blasts Christianity left and right. Thomas Jefferson was suspecting to be a flat out atheist. Saying our laws are based on Christianity is a lie.

There is a difference between a painting and a commandment. If a sign outside of your child’s school said, “vote democrat” you’d call it indoctrination.

If you want religion in your child’s life, teach it to them in the home or in the church. Public schools should be off limits.
That doesn't sound like something KURT RUSSELL would say. Just sayin...
Using you illogic, much of Michelangelo's work would be banished from schools. The Sun would be banished because it endorses the religion of Atum-Ra. The problem is not the display. The problem is the disturbed mind of people like you. You see bogiemen everywhere.

THE_JERK, Spot on again. As well as what you have said the same thing goes for even the display of the Declaration Of Independence. Back under the Clinton administration some of the DODDS schools had to comply with that order. Another instance of that is right near where I live. Two small townships that are right next to each other opted out of the county school system. One town runs the grammar school and middle school, while the other maintains the high school. Somebody complained about the word of God being in the Declaration that it should not be displayed. That person won in court.
I don't understand this unnatural fear of seeing the word God, or a portrait of the assumed appearance of Jesus, anymore that atheists wanting your religion stripped away once you set foot on certain government properties. Well, actually I can. There is a movement to end our religious rights. We'll all eventually be declared terrorists against the state.
Wow. You almost sounded like me for a moment there. Taking an illogical argument to its inevitable conclusion to demonstrate absurdity.
KurtRussell, the posting of a sculpture or painting of the Ten Commandments is not a command. It is your twisted mind that sees it as a command. If it were a command, what's the consequence for not following that command? What god is the Ten Commandments commanding you to worship?
Tzion, sometimes true, but there are times when your illogical argument ignores the facts which is why you see absurdity. But, let's not move to the tangent. I'm sure we'll have plenty of time in another post.
The Jerk, that was profound. Well done sir.

Your questions are so vague. What makes a square root a square root? Well, 5 squared is 25. You may be shocked to know that I also know the square root of 64 is 8. The main use of trigonometry? What an open ended question. It’s helpful in finding angles. Whether it be mathematics, physics, or engineering. It’s also used to find the tangent/secant lines of curves. It’s used in integral and differential calculus. I’m an engineering major so you can ask me all the math questions you want. You’re not Isaac Newton because you know what a square root is…

Saying you are willing to kill people is hardly smart. It’s ignorant and childish. I’m sure he has plenty of anecdotal evidence about gays hitting on him that you never question.

Kill him and go to prison. I seriously doubt anyone would miss you.

There certainly evidence of evolution. There is overwhelming evidence, in fact. Of course evolution won’t be proven because that is the nature of science. Gravity isn’t proven….would you suggest not teaching that? That would make for a very scientific illiterate society.

I’m sure the father is going through an extremely difficult time. He probably feels horrible for what he did to his daughter. I wish all involved the best. Some of you are incredibly hateful.
If we could turn this tragedy around and save the girl's feet, we would. Why don't you show us how? Hmm?
It wouldn't be The Blaze's comment section without repugnant ignorance from 90% of the comments!

Einstein was in his 30′s when he discovered general relativity. Newton was in his 20′s when he developed his theories in calculus and physics. Jonas Salk was in his 40′s when he found the polio vaccine….The list goes on and on. I’m not sure what you consider to be the “greatest” discoveries, though.

No, science needs evidence. Even something like gravity isn’t proven. So if you’re waiting for “proof” you’ll be waiting a long time.

My comment was to call out hypocrites. I’m fine with him speaking. Imagine that…someone being fine with BOTH sides expressing their opinions.

Where do you get the idea that homosexuals are easier to rule?

So Dr. Carson makes a comment on sexuality and it’s cool? However, the students respond and now we need to stop talking about it. Awesome.
April 11, 2013 at 9:54am
No, what you said just didn’t make any sense.

What exactly is a gay free day?

Wait, we’re supposed to be upset that he didn’t comment on his poor basketball performance? Who cares that he didn’t say anything about it?

You mourn for what was?
This country has gone through some pretty dark times. Gun control pales in comparison.
