    Usually invectives like this are hyperbole or distortions. This one is not. It is 100% accurate.Atheists are not well known for their charitable acts so preventing the school from going where charity actually happens does exactly what the headline says.

    The church she grew up in most likely was only the building she grew up in by the time she died. If the church was like that her whole life she was a fool to attend there. So, her daughter should gladly go elsewhere or see if they could rent the building for her service but bring in a different officiant.

    The thing that bothers me is that this is obviously a juvenile and he is not in an area where he could easily hurt other people. The police officers knew it was a potential gun incident and could have put themselves in a better defensive position to allow time to negotiate with the kid. This is way more disturbing than the Michael Brown incident.

    It is good that God didn’t assign me the job of rating sin. In this case, I’d suggest the editors go “—-themselves” as that would be the lesser sin in my sin-rating system compared to character assassination.

    My son writes novels about vampires and portals into other dimensions. He has more of a grip on reality than she does.

    Brown’s parents are absolute paragons of virtue. Their son (of the yours, mine and ours variety) was a pure innocent and their grief at the loss of this fine young man so severe that they couldn’t contain it (in front of a crowd, on the evening of a long-awaited and expected verdict). Gentle folk, they spent several months trying to quell a rising climate of rage but when the time finally came, they just couldn’t hold their sadness in any longer (on the top of a car with a loud voice…was there a microphone?). Heroes, in my book.

    Every business should close its doors and every police officer should resign. Then the problem would be solved.

    There were several months where the narrative could have been “Ferguson Officials and Residents Coming Together to Prevent Another Michael Brown Incident”. Instead we get the impression both sides have just become more entrenched. The government seems powerless and clueless. The protesters seem rabid. It leaves me with another reason to believe forces are at work to foment chaos. I am getting so sick of these grieving parents who use the situation to play on the pity of the populace and rally for revenge. Truth doesn’t seem to matter, the loss of their child must be avenged at all costs. We saw it with Treyvon and we see it here. In both cases, it appears the parents were divorced and the kids lived chaotic lives. Both had aggressive attitudes that contributed to their deaths but the parents seem to feel no remorse for the failings in their own lives that projected on to their kids. Instead, someone else’s head has to roll and the whole country has to be divided in order for them to exact revenge. They seem to love the attention of all the power people who rally around them and suck more power out of the situation….all at the cost of the truth. An opportunity to make things better is wasted and we just wait for more anger and another situation until ultimately the nation will descend into chaos. Even then, I don’t think the revenge would be enough.

    That was an admirable smack down.

    Some of the questions in the press briefing were obnoxious in their bias. I’m not surprised that reporters on the street were equally prejudgemental.

    To the atheists, the only religion appears to be Christianity. I think we should take that as a strength. Since God’s truth is on our side we will eventually win this war. There may be a lot of spilled blood in the interim but ultimately God always wins.

    An intelligent professor will let students know his ideology and then be mature enough to grade according to quality of work, not shared ideology. Difficult but essential to good education.

    Short of “I’ll flunk you if you are not Christian”, I think a college student should be able to handle opinions and viewpoints. The atheist side obviously has crossed that line by limiting discussion to only their point of view.

    The comments tell the story quite well. This battle was predicted thousands of years ago and this battle will see the end of the age. “Be not deceived, God is not mocked. What a man sows, so shall he reap.” “Jerusalem will become a burdensome stone”. I would surely want to be on the right side on this one.

    Racist? It is the Latinos who are asking for and are most affected by the policy. Truth is racist?

    There are still too many unanswered questions. Why was Stevens in Benghazi on 9/11? Why did the terrorists attack there in such a skilled way and then not brag about it? Why were our people so concerned for their safety? Why didn’t BO and HC act on the concerns? Why were all the personnel bullied into silence? We already knew what is in this report. The “stand down” issue is one of semantics and the response about response time and availability of responders doesn’t even begin to answer the real questions. Someone is going to write a detailed book about this and then we we get the real time lines, etc. Meanwhile, McCain and Graham were right about needing a select committee from the beginning. Everything gets too confused without subpoena powers and methodical investigation. This pool was way to muddy from the start, including leaving the compound open for looters. Remember the Clintons. None of us doubt the dead bodies buried to protect them and no one thinks Hillary’s real estate deals were real. We know the facts about Monica, etc. but nothing was “proven”. Susan Rice is still a lying weasel just like her bosses.

    Once again we have the straw man. The republicans are against immigration reform so the president had no choice but to act. They didn’t pass the bipartisan bill, so they aren’t going to act in the future. Are we forgetting that the republicans intentionally put this off until after the election because there was no chance of anything good happening under the dems? It is like the behavior of an abusive parent who tells the child to clean his room and then immediately punishes the child for not acting fast enough. I for one am so sick and tired of this paternalistic liberal mindset. This pastor wants what he wants more than he wants what is right.

    The big difference between Christianity and all other religions is the personal relationship with Jesus. To know him is to love him and I am glad this guy got to know him. It is disturbing that he is a pastor and didn’t know Jesus. Let this be a lesson to each of us. If your pastor doesn’t know Jesus well enough to love him, you need to go elsewhere.

    Bill Cosby admitted to fathering a child out of wedlock quite a few years ago, so we know he is at least somewhat messed up in the sexual arena. What bothers me about what I am seeing regarding the current allegations is that the women say they were under the influence when the encounter happened. One of them admits to drinking and taking drugs herself and has hazy memories about the rape itself. Another claims he drugged her. The claims are not provable and the victims themselves are hazy about what occurred. Why, pray tell, is is now that they are finding the need to bare their souls and seek justice? I know it was triggered by a comedian who called him a rapist but that doesn’t explain the furor it is creating. I know I may be just way too cynical and suspicious but I smell a BO-Sharpton-Jackson odor in the timing of this.

    If you paid attention, you would see that she deliberately used clothing as part of the test. She was not just whining about fat-shaming, she was addressing the whole issue. Also, note that there wasn’t a Brangelina in the whole bunch of scoffers. Is the underlying thought “At least I don’t look that bad”? That is a dangerous game, if so. I appreciate her courage and self-awareness to be able to look at herself in the shadow of other people’s disdain. I’ll bet she has lots of pictures without the critics in the background. Not everyone is shallow, arrogant and mean.
