“The photograph is highly offensive and contrary to the values of diversity, inclusiveness, and embracing the ethnic and cultural differences among students, faculty, and staff that are deeply held at Pace University and it’s Athletics Department,” Friedman said. “This is especially true at this time when states throughout the country are recognizing the symbolic offensiveness of displaying the Confederate flag and the importance of accepting those with different backgrounds is being sorely tested by the refugee crisis in Europe.”
The school’s response isn’t very reflective of their values of diversity, inclusiveness, and embracing the ethnic and cultural differences among students, faculty, and staff. I guess it’s only inclusive of their ideas. I certainly don’t agree with racism , sexism, … but if you say you are accepting of diversity, inclusiveness and differences then be it.

On the contrary Piers, man is inherently flawed, much as your logic.The Bible is and always will be the the path to righteousness and a civil world.

Nice try with the old “I will use there words” to try and destroy their theory. If you want to use the bible you must read it with understanding instead of hand picking phrases you think mean something. None of your statements from the bible are God’s laws, they are man’s laws that God allowed them to live by. God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, not such human laws such as you wrote.

Wow, did you quick google those quotes like you’re some sort of genius because it actually reveals your idiocy.There is a clear difference in discipline (biblically) and child abuse and you cannot tell the two apart.

I will never change my conservative views. And they will never be wrong because they are biblical in nature. Abortion at will is wrong and can never be accepted and same sex marriage is not marriage at all. Illegal immigration is illegal, we have laws and they should be enforced. The problem with society is that we are selfish and want what we want, and want it now. There is right and wrong in this world and it is revealed in the bible.

To those who posted that religion has been the cause of more death in history I would like you to give me statistical facts or explain what religion Stalin claimed as he killed tens of millions of his fellow countrymen, or Communist China and the 60 million deaths at the hands of that government. What about Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge and the 2 million Cambodians who died in their hands. I am not so blind the the fact that religion has played a big part in wars throughout history, and that many people were persecuted and murdered in the name of a god , but don’t be so ignorant to think religion has been the only (or worst) cause of death in world history.

What makes all you people think he’s drunk? He bought a Prius, way more than its value, to save the earth from deadly pollution. Except where do these people get the power to charge these batteries? Oh yeah, coal burning power plants. I offer that he is just stupid.

I agree with you 100%. It took me a few years of trying times with my wife but I did grow up and realize the gift in my life. No regrets (other than my own selfishness).
As usual, on the wrong side of the issues. Muslims do have an obligation to denounce extremists within the Muslim community. Catholics have denounced the church for their sex scandals, Christians vocally denounce the Westboro Baptist church for their hate, and the terrorist acts against abortion clinics. You choose to see only what you want to see and hear only what you want to hear. Radical Muslims have been using airline highjacking (almost exclusively) for decades. Their ideology is wrapped in the Quran and no one stands up to protect the religion, except the PC.
“Everything I need to know about Islam I learned on Sept 11th.”

I haven’t seen ABC post lately so he/she may have left, but I get from the posts that ABC is an emotionless Vulcan like Spock on Star Trek. Educated, versed and capable of dialog, although overshadowed by condescension. There is a lack of emotion and understanding to what life is really about. For him/her is seems easier to rely on some scientific theory and legal standing to make the decision for them. I don’t claim to have the answers either but I can say with assurance and fact that science is wrong and has continued to be changed to reflect new” understanding” in all fields. Laws are made and changed based on social morality so there is no reason to say we can’t gain renewed morality and change the laws to protect all life. Having said that I wonder if ABC would respect those changes since it could be settled law and new understandings in science?
