I disagree. Forgiveness is not for EVIL. Lying, cheating, stealing, stupid "smaller" stuff like that, can be forgiven. True evil (aka killing in the name of a pedophile God), is an unforgivable offense.
The Bible is filled with statements regarding what will happen to those that perpetrate evil, and none of them mentioned are good results.
The purpose of forgiveness is to be able and move normal relationships along, instead of having the wrong fester.

Um. Atheism has an influence on behaviour. Moustaches do not.

@Rangerskippy, In my opinion, you are probably alienating people who would even agree with you on here. Nobody likes a bully, and nobody likes someone pointing their finger in your face telling you what they believe is right.
You can be speaking the truth, but if you are doing it in a way that completely turns away and alienates everyone from it, then you are nothing more than a clanging gong.
Most people would probably agree that the culture of drugs, sex, and rock and roll isn’t good. But when you can’t help yourself from making snarky comments and standing on your soapbox commenting about a video of a baby singing a song, guess who comes off as being the bad guy? Elvis? The parent that is playing the song? The culture? No. You.
You come off as being a holier-than-thou, rigid jerk, who can’t watch a video of a baby singing without trying to point his finger in everyone’s faces to try and give them a lesson about morality.
The result? Some get mad at you, many probably think you are just a dope, but most probably just read your post, move on, and summarily ignore 99% of what you say in every other thing you post. You become the chicken little of the message board.
The problem with that is, is that when the sky actually IS falling, no one will be listening to you because you have alienated everyone not by your message, but by your means of delivering it – shoving it down everyone’s throat.

“white Americans should also understand that African Americans are pained by Trayvon’s death and continue to face racial discrimination.”
A hispanic guy shoots a black kid, yet it’s whitey who needs to understand things better. Zimmerman is as white as Obama.
This guy is such a tool.

Rangerskippy, what music do you listen to?

Someone can’t appear with Marilyn Manson and be a Christian? Kinda like Jesus spending time with prostitutes and tax collectors? Get the plank out of your own eye.

Fake. Setup to try and make a viral vid. The video happens to start right as the dock is tipping and you can’t see the whole dock?

Humanity isn’t inherently good, it’s inherently bad. That’s why things like this happen. A bomb goes off and kills and maims hundreds, my first reaction isn’t how ‘good’ people are.
He is right, though... we may FOCUS on the negative but the inherent goodness of humanity by far outnumbers the bad.
They are the ones working it out day in and day out. They are being selfless, doing the hard work, paying the bills, carrying the load.
The reason it's not perceives is exactly because it is common and it should be.
We highlight the standouts for good or bad, and more often than good the bad, the sensational.
But the good by far outnumber the bad in all societies around the world and what he said is true.
When the good rise up and let their light shine (their influence for good be felt) THEN darkness is dispelled.
Absolutely true - it's a clarion call to duty!
The problem is not that humanity is inherently good or evil but FLAWED. We get bogged down in our own lives and ignore the outside world and the interactions with each other. It is a shame that it takes something like this to bring out the BEST in us...not just American's but ALL people of all creed, nationality, religion, and political stripe. We can see EVIL and know its face in these events and we REACT to that EVIL at an instinctual level.
Some of us run from it, some seek cover, but others RUN AT the Evil, preparing to FIGHT and DEFEND and DRIVE it back into the darkness. Whether you do that with words or actions does not matter, you have the SPIRIT of a fighter or a leader or a healer and you KNOW what has to be done.
Everyone has some type of spirit to respond to EVIL when it becomes apparent. The problem with humanity is that we have been blinded by the EVIL and those that serve it, instructed to deny our SPIRIT and buy into the FEAR, conditioned over generations and generations to not respond.
Humanity is not good or evil but flawed.
But we MUST fight every day to correct those flaws and return to our spirit and whatever form that our Creator has given that spirit to us. Again, it is a tragedy that something like this is necessary for many of us to WAKE UP and over come our flaws, even if for only a few days and BEAT BACK the EVIL.
I have always known I was a FIGHTER, a soldier willing to die if necessary to protect and defend the GOOD. Too often I simply boil in my anger towards the EVIL because I don't know how to fight back or where the target is. That all changed on 9-11-2001.
I found the target as I raced to work, at a high school, just 1/4 mile from the airport that two of the hijacked planes were bound for. Parents racing back from work or home to pick up one of the 1000 students that were already on campus waiting for classes to start. I saw the 30-40 staff that were already there trying to keep things organized and orderly. I saw and heard the F-16s taking off as they went after any flight that did not divert or land immediately. For the next week there was silence were the roar of jet engines used to be as all air traffic was grounded. The occasional F-16 scrambled at full afterburner to bring down an unresponsive plane that even breached the US airspace made the entire campus hold its breathe.
I decided in those days that I would no longer compromise, no longer hold my tongue, no longer allow things to pass me by and refuse to fighter or listen to those that said I should "relax" or "chill out" or "stop being so dramatic" and simply focus on my little life. I might not have removed my flaws but I refuse not to fight any longer, the EVIL will not stand in my presence not will I back away when I see it...
You are an idiot. If humanity wasn't inherently good we'd all be living on the plains of Africa killing everyday to eat. Science and Medicine have brought about millions of miracles. If you don't think people are better off now then they were at the time of Christ you are deluded.People live longer and live better, This is thanks to God and our fellow man. Evil is as old as the Bible and will always be with u, but I believe like Anne Frank that most people are good. Do think all those people heading towards the site of the explosion where just curious or do you believe they where going to help.Based on you dumb comment I guess you'd go with curiosity. Fortunately most people i.e. good people don't think like you.
Precisely. The world in it's wisdom knew not God.

IT’S NOT A MAN. NEVER WAS, NEVER WILL BE. It is a woman who has mutilated her body.
March 20, 2013 at 1:32pm
zzzzzzzz why does the blaze post things like this. Is this really ‘news’?
The real question:
Why would a "young man" be permitted to post this on Facebook????
>His father should have locked up the video --he took of his son.
I agree. The quality of The Blaze stories have really been lacking lately.

society decides what to do for people all the time. If someone wants to murder their neighbour, is it society’s job to tell that person it’s wrong? Or make a law against it? Of course it is.
March 17, 2013 at 4:11pm
these people literally tear apart and slaughter babies, is anyone surprised that they don’t care about assaulting someone? They are murderers. They spend their lives killing people, why should we be shocked that they don’t care about other people’s rights? Their whole career is taking away the most basic right – life, away from people.
And others see it as having a career helping mostly young girls PRESERVE their right to grow up without the "burden" of an unwanted baby, no baby daddy to help, forced to live on welfare and food stamps from gvmt assistance while they drop out of high school and become a burden on society for years and years.
Sounds rather "commendable" from that perspective.
With or without a child, she will likely carry shame and guilt all her life.
Or at least SHOULD.
All for one moment's passion in the back seat of a car...
I'm SURE no man HERE has ever been in that situation right??
Is it really right for society to decide FOR HER what she should do?
What if it was YOUR daughter who willfully had sex and got knocked up?
It LIKELY even HAPPENED to some posters here and they don't even KNOW about it-
thanks to planned parenthood...
Where whould she be NOW if the kept it at 16/17 years of age?
How would YOUR life be different?
Granted. the whole thing is a bad situation -
I think Norplant for EVERYONE till age 25 is the way to go.
Till then, legal is legal.
Leave the CLINICS alone and go to Washington.
society decides what to do for people all the time. If someone wants to murder their neighbour, is it society's job to tell that person it's wrong? Or make a law against it? Of course it is.
Your name is much like calling Obamacare the "AFFORDABLE CARE ACT". You are progressive to the core.
Your statements that by providing an abortion that it will keep a young girl from having "no baby daddy to help, forced to live on welfare and food stamps from gvmt assistance while they drop out of high school and become a burden on society for years and years."
You actually believe that these "young girls" learn their lesson after having an abortion and will go out and become model citizens and not become burdens on society ? Do you live under a rock ? Most of them will leave PP and go right back to doing what brought them there in the first place. They use abortions as birth control. There are no consequences for their poor decisions, so they will continue their behavior.
You don't want society to decide anything for her, but you are OK with society mandating Norplant for everyone until 25.
You really need to examine your thought process.

Who has faith in humanity, and why would a $250 gift between strangers restore it, in the whole of humanity? Look at the middle east, look at the growing darkness in the world, look at the slaughter of the unborn. Yet one person giving another person a $250 gift in the richest country in the world is supposed to ‘restore my faith in humanity’? Who is writing these headlines?
The eastern world, it is exploding, violence flaring, bullets loading. You're old enough to kill, but not for voting; you don't believe in war, then what's that gun you're toting? And even the Jordan River has bodies floating...and you tell me, over and over and over again, my friend, ah, you don't believe, we're on the Eve of Destruction? Ssgt. Barry Sandler.
Same old tune...but yes, the goodness of humanity, usually piecemeal, no pun intended, helps.
For Heaven's Sake, Keep the Sunny Side up there.
Bless your heart.

that’s your opinion, thankyou.
January 30, 2013 at 4:33pm
WHO CARES???? The Blaze started out so well, who is deciding to keep posting stories like this?? What does it have to do with anything?
I’m assuming the majority of people on here are right-wing, so although we believe in equal rights and freedom for everyone, I’m assuming most of us aren’t going to find ‘coming out’ stories heartwarming. Who are you trying to appeal to? This site is getting terrible.
Look at where the story is posted. It's in FAITH. Since homosexuality and the morality or immorality of it is a faith issue this is where it belongs. As long as this isn't treated as a regular news item i have no issue with articles like this appearing on the site. It's the popularity of an article is what get's it promoted to the front page like this. You need to relax.
"What does it have to do with anything?"
Are ya serious?

Where the heck did you find a Canadian $1 bill??? They haven’t made $1 bills in like 25 years!!!
I think moving out of the country because of the President is tantamount to abandonin the very country you claim to love. Read fresh political commentary at: http://smallcraftadvisorychronicles.blogspot.com/

The Simpsons stopped being relevant to anything years ago. I didn’t even know it was still on.

He says these things because he is stupid. We don’t need to analyze it anymore than that. He is plain stupid.
April 12, 2012 at 5:12am
what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
