    At the end of all this, we are going to discover that we are completely wrong about the root of the obesity epidemic plaguing our kids. We will discover that the surge in cancer and autoimmune diseases have the same source as the obesity increase. Won’t we all be embarrassed then? Meanwhile, we will just make the problem worse with all of our social engineering. This is one more reason I am glad my children are grown and not in the public school system. I hope and pray my grandkids can continue to stay outside of that system as well. They are human destruction facilities.

    This is so ridiculous! School lunches have been abysmally bad since the beginning of time. Pasty mac and cheese, hyper-processed corn dogs, soggy pizza, etc. are nothing more than filler. We always went home for soup and sandwiches. If we took lunch it was a good sandwich and fruit. We drank water. School lunch rooms don’t have to be junk food factories. Instead of fixing the quality of foods while providing things kids will actually eat, we cut portion size and continue with the white bread bun around a rubbery hamburger patty and pretend that is the best we can do. Maybe the PTA moms should run the lunch rooms as fundraising events. Quality would go up, cost would go down and the entire extracurricular programs of the schools could be run on the profits.

    I am so glad to be a Christian Feminist, seeing women through the eyes of God. I couldn’t be the other kind of feminist because I couldn’t stand being that angry all the time. I love being loved. I love knowing that I am just as loved if I stay home to raise my kids or go to a job every day. I am loved if I am married or single. I am even loved if I look at another woman with admiring eyes. I am blessed, though, by actions that are noble. For that, I am glad to have been a good wife to a God-loving man, to be the mom to my kids and to have let my outside work be a supplement to that. Seems like I’ve got it all. Seems like even Gwenyth Paltrow understands that as her life is falling apart.

    If there is a God? Whoops. I think he needs to rethink his theology. It is God who decides how a person gets into heaven and bullying people is probably not on the list. That’s the problem with works-based salvation. Grace, on the other hand…

    OMG, a NBA player with ideas of his own! Squelch him quickly. He is a danger to all known norms. Drum him out of the business if needed. Where, pray tell, should a mindless muscle man dwell except in pro sports? For the record, I am totally in agreement with Griffin and am glad to have him in the ranks of people who defy cultural science standards. I’ll bet he believes babies are babies, too.

    This is a tough one, but in truth an employer needs to pay workers and this woman can’t work. The time she was able to stay on the job is generous considering her prognosis. Most employers have long and short term disability options and SS disability is available to cancer patients as well as anyone disabled over two years. Her situation is sad but most people in her situation have it far worse financially.

    For those of you who choose to denigrate this woman, I have a word of warning. Don’t even try to complain when you finally realize the cost of ignoring what is going on. Just lay down and let the steamroller take you out. It’s what you asked for. If I had as much courage and integrity as she shows in this situation, I’d be very proud of myself. She has kids and woke up one night to seeing her computers going on and off. Found out she was being hacked and she knows by whom. Yet she still stands on her principles. True Grit.

    Conservative intellect vs Liberal hubris. Winner by knockout: intellect.

    It shows how idiotic ruling by statistics is. We should all keep this in mind in light of the health screenings lots of employees’ health insurance are offering/requiring. Incentives are sometimes given for compliance with standards that are statistically derived but create a one size fits all climate that is far from realistic and very likely medically unsound. Soon, if the trend goes, compliance will be necessary for coverage. It is a risky trend.

    Fox had a segment on “Losing our Liberty” over the weekend that told a similar story. That family finally won to some extent. We have been blind for too long. We have lost too much. I hope that is about to change.

    This is heartbreaking. Bob Coy has been a good Bible teacher for a long time. Biblically, though, his stepping down is the right thing to do. While we all sin, some sins do disqualify a preacher from preaching. His standing as a child of the Living God has not changed. His authority is just shaken. If he deals with this right, he can come back stronger than ever, more aware of his own vulnerabilities and more sensitive to the temptations people face. He will also know the power of God for forgiveness and restoration in a very personal way.

    Unfortunately this is a nearly empty warning as it is much too late.

    OMG an EASTER EGG HUNT at a CHRISTIAN CHURCH. Those poor kids must be scarred for life!!! Now even living in a world where people of different opinions (beliefs) act on them is an affront of biblical proportions. We certainly are in trouble, aren’t we?

    Think of Lot who found it more acceptable to offer his daughters to a lust-filled mob than offer up his male guests. Somehow, these things end up completely twisted when we give in to evil. I will leave it up to each person reading this as to what that evil is (there are several choices). In the end, though, we end up with this kind of choice. Truth is that Mozilla should have made the Hobby Lobby/Chick-fil-A choice and saved their own souls. They fed the beast and the beast will ultimately eat them.

    According to CPS, he didn’t look like this in Feb. Really?? He couldn’t have looked normal. They’d have to prove it by me because this looks like it has been going on for quite a while. Sick SOB’s like these parents are one thing but CPS workers who don’t know abuse when they see it is another.

    None of the people who died over there in the past 5 years needed to die if we weren’t going to win the thing. We seem to have decided that the rest of the world isn’t our problem except for Israel. Until they give up their right to exist, we will be engaged there. Too bad they can’t just figure out that world peace depends on their extermination. In nobility, they would just give up and die for the good of all. (BO foreign policy in a nutshell.)

    Separation of church and state? Freedom from religion? What message are we really trying to send? I personally think it is a great piece of art but I do question the hypocrisy of making communities take down cross memorials while placing religiously charged art around the world at our embassies.

    I think they grossly misrepresented the president here. He wouldn’t have objections, they probably would have been his ideas.

    I would suggest she quit her job, get a nice little rancher in the burbs and take care of her kids. Get involved in a nice church, meet a nice guy with a good job and be a happy homemaker. She certainly has the choice. Most 9-5ers can’t say that.

    Once again, character trumps all. It is hard to be shaken when you stand on the unshakable.
