    Isn’t this exactly what Brain Williams was just dismissed over? I say its time to dismiss Hillary!

    What is going on in the Secret Service? Have they always acted this way and it just never received any press or is this a reflection of the administration they work for?

    So Mr. Harris, which aspects of this “first-century worldview” should we subscribe to and who should decide that for us? I mean if you are going for the suggest that this aspect is “out-of-date” than what other aspects are out-of-date? Is there really sin, Satan, hell, heaven, right/wrong, Jesus, God? I mean those things just seem so “first-century”. Mr Harris, you are an embarrassment to the God you claim to serve!

    I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. – Romans 16:17-18

    One of the things I liked most about Ben Carson was that he seemed willing to take on political correctness because as he said it was silencing people. And now it seems as though he has been silenced by political correctness. Assuming he has the facts to support his question, then there was absolutely nothing offensive about it. If homosexuals do not chose to be homosexual, as so many claim, then how can so many enter prison straight and come out homosexual? I’m still waiting for the answer…..

    I didn’t realize that former Senator Barney Frank had become a High School teacher in Connecticut

    The second article is simply bogus. The actual rape statistics for Providence year to year are shown here:

    http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime-Providence-Rhode-Island.html

    And while there was a drop from 2003 to 2004, 2005 had nearly as many as 2002. And besides it ignores national crime trends, and the revitalization that the city was going through during the late 1990′s and early 2000′s

    I am quoting statistics from some fairly reliable sources – who is it that is debunking them?

    According to the National Center of Victims of Crime, 1 in 5 girls will be the victim of sexual abuse.

    http://www.victimsofcrime.org/media/reporting-on-child-sexual-abuse/child-sexual-abuse-statistics

    According to Rape Abuse & Incest National Network every 107 seconds another American is sexually abused. 293,000 each year!

    https://www.rainn.org/statistics

    According to CASA 1 in 5 women will be the victim of sexual violence.

    Can anyone argue that having porn readily available to anyone at any age is constructive to our society? 1 in 5 women will be raped or sexually abused in America today. 20% of women! You wanna talk about a war on women! To suggest that making prostitution and brothels legal is going to make that problem better is absolutely idiotic. That’s similar to the argument that they made in Colorado that marijuana use would go down once its legalized – uh huh, that’s clearly working out for them! There are 600 to 700 rapes reported in Las Vegas every year. Compare that to New York where there are 1,000 to 1,200 reported cases. The population of Las Vegas – 603,500 and New York – 8.4 million. So clearly legalizing prostitution is not the answer! And clearly porn has no positive effect on society. What would make a ton of sense, since we live in a free society is to have a common sense approach to porn on the Internet which is to structure it in such a way as to allow easy, guaranteed ways to block it for those that do not want it infiltrating their home and families! For example requiring that any X-rated material be published in a .porn or .prn (or some other derivative) domain! Then you simply block content from those domains and you’ve allow the Internet to be a constructive tool in your house without some of its destructive nature.

    So if holding up a sign saying “White Power” is so racial and offensive, then why is blaming issues in the black communities on “White Privilege” not racial or offensive?

    “The church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense” – so Rob, what parts of this ancient manuscript are real then? Can people just choose which ones they want to believe and which ones are irrelevant just because the culture says so? Do morals come from culture? If the culture decides that its okay for men to have sex with children as young as 10 – would that become morally acceptable too? How about slavery – if the culture decides that we collectively would like to bring it back – would that become morally acceptable? How about mutual consent for murder – the wild west dual at sundown – if the culture decides that’s a reasonable means to resolve disputes – would that be morally acceptable? Just where does the churches’ definition of morals come from Rob? This notion of culture determining morals simply does not work. Just because it is culturally acceptable does not make it morally right and if it is not morally right then how can the church “accept it”? By your definition Rob the church should also just accept abortion – I’m sure God is okay with taring apart a baby for convenience, after all, the culture seems to think it is okay. So if the church doesn’t agree with the culture – then the church must change…wow so much for being the light in a dark world…

    One of my questions about evolution is that over millions of years suddenly there is man. Regardless of the insane possibility of this occurring and life being created from nothing etc…here we are at that point in history – there is man! Where did woman come from? And they both happened to arrive on the scene within a 40-50 years of each other in order to procreate. And furthermore they had to arrive on the scene at the same time and had to be geographically located close enough to discover one another. What are the odds of that?

    “The First Amendment mandates that schools cannot advance or promote religion, so that’s what this display is doing,” REALLY? I don’t see the word school mentioned anywhere in the first amendment do you?

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    And what about “prohibiting the free exercise thereof” OR “abridging the freedom of speech”…how come those are never mentioned when the FFRF raises these insane issues?

    Why does it always come down to race and gender? It’s the greatest show on Earth, because of race and gender? Why isn’t it the greatest show on earth because of the competency and character of the contenders? I thought the objective was that we didn’t see race or color…we are all Americans…at least I thought that’s was Martin Luther King was preaching!

    We need to convince Ben Carson to run! We need a non-politician for a nice change! http://www.runbenrun.org

    If no images of the “prophet” are allowed – then how do we even know what he looked like? And if we don’t know what he looked like, then how can they claim that a cartoonist is in violation of their “traditions” by drawing a figure that they think looks like what they believe Muhammad looked like?

    And as a side note – use Google images and search for ‘Muhammad’…hmmmmm????

    Maybe this is what happened to the money designated for shovel ready infrastructure jobs.

    Can I ask a common sense question? If our infrastructure is such a disaster, then why are we spending sooooo much time and money constructing walls along highways throughout this country? Shouldn’t that money be spent on “infrastructure” instead of unnecessary sound barriers?

    Let’s see what else being taught in school “has a religious content”? History? Art? Music History? Literature? Poetry? Geography? Language? Social Studies? Ancient Civilizations? Medieval and Renaissance? U.S. History and Government?

    I think it is time to immediately cease teaching these subjects as one might encounter some “religious content”!!!
