If man creates laws. then man will hold the power to break or change such laws. If our Laws come from God, then only God can change laws, or hold us accountable, when judgement is passed, and there is no one else to pass judgement under God’s authority.
God gave man a conscious in order to know right from wrong. and to pass judgement on what is wrong and right. What Phil is saying is that if Atheist are denying that conscious, Then they are saying that the laws we have come from man, and not God, so when we no longer hold our selves to a higher being, then our society will continue to fall. Our constitutions was written for a Moral People. Once yo remove the moral expectations, Or God’s expectation of man, then you will lose the foundation of what this country was built on.
maryann: “Then (Atheists) are saying that the laws we have come from man, and not God”
Every single law in the American criminal code – at every level of government, were made by men – not your supposed God. Those laws include our Constitution, the foundation of our nation – and it makes no mention of your God..
Men will catch people that break those laws. Men will judge the people that break those laws. Men will ensure that those who break those laws face very real consequences – not consequences that exist only in the imagination of those who believe in your God.
maryann72961. I am not an atheist, but not completely convinced that there is a God either, so let me offer a different way of interperting how we develop our morality. The obvious answer here is that are moraliity is shaped by our environment. For example, if you grew up with younger siblings, your parents most likely stressed you share your toys with them. This is not a biblical prinicipal. A parent would not have to have read the Bible in order to teach her children this lesson. Furthermore, our morality comes from the fact that we possess empathy. Meaning we identify with outher people, because they, like us, are human. They breathe and exist just like us. We wouldn't want anyone to kill us, so we generally don't find it acceptable to go around killing people. However, when we do, for example our troops that have returned home from the Middle East with PTSD, the memory of being responsible for taking the life of another person is something that doesn't go away easily. In the same way, seeing other people being killed, liek a fellow soldiers for example, is extremely hard to deal with, because we knew them. They were close enough to us that we begine to think that we could have just as easily been the one to die. We don't like the fact that people die, violently or of natural causes. So, we don't go around killing other people, as a result.
If our laws come from your god then explain why even attempting to enforce half of the 10 Commandments is illegal.

Well, Unless Obama is watching the news, to get updated on what is going on, we all have to assume he is clueless as to what is going on in Yemen. or his own back yard for that matter

It is time to bow out of the UN. they have become an entity of corruption. and in my opinion was created in order to push for a one world Government. I also believe that the UN is a run around the United States constitution. and being used for that purpose by progressives that have infiltrated our government.

So after reading the post from the Chamber of Commerce, where they list all the things they will not discriminate against, Religion was one of the things they listed, and yet this women will now be discriminated against, because she didn’t come prepared with an army to raise all kinds of Hatti when she says no to protect her freedom of religion right to practice as the teachings of her faith dictate to her. See what being politically correct is doing to our society. No one will tolerate anyone at this rate.
 March 19, 2015 at 3:21pm
yet this women does not have equal rights under the right to practice her faith as she believes. she in her faith feels that she would be in support of a sin if she was to videotape their union, when it goes in direct conflict with the teachings of her faith. it seems that once again, tolerance is a one way street, and you get to ruin people that practice their belief in their business, that they live everyday in their personal life. I believe a marriage is between a man and a women. Period. I believe that murder, stealing, dishonoring your parents. putting false Gods before God almighty, telling falsehoods, bestiality man laying with man and women laying with women, are all sins covered in the ten commandments. Now, God did give us free will, and choice. However, that does not mean you get to shove your sin and your choice down someone who is trying to live according to their faith. With that said, that also does not mean you get to be treated meanly, or with hostility. However it may mean someone of faith may say no to what you are wanting from them, if they feel they would be participating in the sin and condoning the sin, that goes against the direct teaching of the ten commandments and the teachings of the bible. People can say no. and do it with respect. So Please exercise a little bit of your tolerance towards them and their faith. This kind of action on the part of this gay couple, only drives a wedge and push back on gains made in the last 20+ years.
How would she know that the couple would be sinning at the time of the video taping?
Would they be beating someone up?
Robbing a bank?
Murdering their parents?
What sin does she know that the couple will be doing ?
Is she clairvoyant?

It seems that the Secret Service is taking the ques by following Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton. and now them on how to not be held accountable. Do you all remember how Nixon ended up resigning. It was over 16 minutes of tape getting erased and he resigned the presidency. there is no accountability anymore. We have an administration that is picking and choosing which laws they will follow. And will not hold anyone for lost emails. Maybe Washington needs to go back to snail mail. and loose the right to have a computer.

Until our Congress holds this president and his administration accountable of Treason. this nation is under attack from within. We have a enemy of this nation sitting at the highest office in the land. Wake up Congress and have Obama arrested.
I'm 71 years old and don't expect to live long enough to see something like that.
Our military will have to do it or the Secret Service. Congress has no one that can arrest him.

We all need to pray for Trey Gowdy. his life will be in danger as he goes after Hillary. Seems people have died that have gone up against the Clinton machine. I pray that God will put a hedge of protection around Trey Gowdy, and that as he moves forward with his investigation, that truth will prevail. and he is able to call out Evil and stop it. In Jesus name I Pray. AMEN
February 23, 2015 at 2:21pm
I hope and pray the sheeple that voted this evil S.O.B into office, finally wake up and see just how evil this man is. the DHS did have funding voted on and passed in the house, Without funding his illegal power grab with immigration. Now the Senate needs to do its job and pass the bill. Otherwise it is on all those that wear the progressive cloak and are not willing to pass it. If the president refuses to sign it, then he needs to be brought up on treason charges and impeached.
 February 23, 2015 at 8:41am
This kid hit the nail on the head, and he said it so well, and all without having to have a teleprompter. I feel hope for a future if there are more like him, Not all kids have been brained washed by the Progressive agenda. Thank you Jesus. Please Lord put a hedge of protection around him and all our children, Please shine light where ever evil is, so that they can see what evil is and turn away from it. In Jesus name I pray AMEN
Yes indeed Maryann! More importantly, with no slang...Er.. strings attached! :D

I find it despicable that the only way these hacks try to win a point is by throwing out the race card. It’s getting old, and tiresome.

I remember when they first introduced the theory of evalution in our schools and how my mom insisted that if we had to write a paper on evalution, we should be able to write a paper on the bible. I remember how upset my mom was over this. Now here I am all these years later appreciating why she took the stand that she did. The progressive indocternation has been taking place for a very long long time. We have been nudged right into this place where our kids are now being indocternated into Islam, right under the noses of their parents. Every single parent should take their kids out of school and have a nation wide boycott of the whole Government school system.
Evolution, not "evaluation". But I got your drift.

Obama had to lie about what he believes and who he is. If he told the truth and showed himself for the actual person that he is he never would of been elected. The reason they have no problem with lying, is one radical Muslims such as himself think it’s OK to lie if the lie helps further an agenda. He also is following rules for radicals, in which it also states, the means justify the ends. This man as not one ounce of character.
 February 2, 2015 at 11:33am
Why would you assume that he is already giving his vote to the democrats. The fact that he is working, willing to walk so far to keep his job and earn his way would debunk that thought. I would think that he is a conservative, who is willing to work for what he has, and not live off the government dole.
 January 26, 2015 at 2:27pm
This president needs to be impeached. As long as this guy is in office he will continue to rob the American people and commit acts of treason against the United States. Wake up Congress and start impeaching this traitor from office, or you are just as guilty as he is
 January 23, 2015 at 2:48pm
Come on, we know who wears the pants in the White house. Valerie Jarrett decides who Obama meets with, who is picked for questions at press conferences. who will be press secretary, She also decides what Obama will veto, and what executive orders he will sign. Lets face it. Obama is the puppet and Valerie Jarrett is the puppet master who is doing the bidding of George Soros and villains like him

How can this group call themselves a Christian group, when the message they wanted to put on the cake says that God Hates… I don’t know about his God, But as a Christian, I believe that God loves everyone, including sinners. He could of put on the cake, God hates Sin, including the verse that states that people of the same sex engaging in sexual acts is a sin. He could of had it say, engaging in same sex, sex, is a sin in God’s eyes. But he didn’t, he directed his free speech as a message of hate towards the person. That to me is hate speech.
Agreed. I do not see this as an act of discrimination, I see this as a potential hate crime instead. If the customer just wanted the cakes and have it say something more toward the sin versus using the word HATE, it may have passed. But this it wrong to promote hatred, regardless of your views.

I’ve already decided that I was going to write in Ted Cruz if anyone other then him or Rand Paul, or even Mike Lee was on the ballet
I hope that if the republicans know what is good for them and this country, they will not except her nomination. It’s time to stop the president from stacking the deck so he can carry out his illegal actions.
