Atheism IS a religion. It purports without evidence that the universes are self generating and self maintaining.

Certainly Ben Carson had a much different experience of life growing up than Glenn Beck. He has seen different things than Glen Beck has seen.
He also has the perspective of a health care professional who understands the suffering caused by the spread of preventable (STI) diseases to even his pediatric patients.
There are many medical professionals who are far less enamored by the risky sexual lifestyles touted by the mainstream media, simply for the increased and unnecessary suffering and deaths which are caused.
It really bothers those of us in health care to see babies born with HIV, herpes, gonorrhea, etc. We know injectable drug use is a choice. We know sexual behavior is a choice, outside of rape. It is established from the existence of bisexuals that choice is involved in sex orientation too.
I consider Black Conservatives in this generation to be a cut above most people because they have already proven their strength by swimming directly against the tide.
Perhaps it is most appropriate to become 100% pure libertarian about sex: Make people fully fund their own sexual choices and 100% of the consequences.
WOW. I so enjoyed reading your comments, especially the last sentence. SUCH COMMON SENSE AND WISDOM. Maybe you should run for political office. I WOULD VOTE FOR YOU.
Likewise, as to SDR's assessment. Your approach and honesty mirrors that of Dr. Carson, but it is centered on logic and not emotions, and thus not worthy of Glenn or a large majority of average folks, unfortunately, to even attempt to comprehend.

Since studies show that the majority of women surveyed felt that they were coerced or pressured to get an abortion, this “right to choose” expression is not relevant to the abortion debate.

Prayers for Don Radcliff and his pharmacy team, for God to keep them safe.

Glenn Beck forgot that the Tea Party isn’t a party. It’s a state of mind. No one has the power to change the name.
If it were a party, I’d say it should change its name AFTER the Republicans and Democrats change their names. Both of those party names have become dirty words to me.
Glenn has been up in the rarefied circle of elites for too long and it’s affecting him.

The Tebow commercial with the live kid was so much more uplifting. Remember that one?

Some more of this kind of inventiveness would circumvent Obamacare.
Imagine the middle class being able to pay for such things as limb and joint replacements in cash, and needing insurance for only the most catastrophic disasters.
The Unlimited Tomorrow website mentions that LaChapelle is taking a valuable message on the road that people can learn outside of the ‘education system’.
Imagine how inexpensive education and health care would be without the exorbitant overhead of corporate/government cronyism.
And the Corporate Medical device makers will lobby the FDA to ban all of his products, research, and force a SWAT team raid on his house.
Or they will simply do what big Corps always do. Lobby for regulations that will put him out of business. And the FDA/HHS will find a way to oblige.

Passing your clarification on, because the media won’t. Thanks for illuminating this issue.
It is sad that so many, who call themselves “conservatives”, drink the crap flavored koolaid spewed by the lamestreamers about Sarah Palin.

The philosophical system of Buddhism does not address a particular Deity, but millions of Buddhists everywhere worship the Deity according to their own vision, (which might be of plural Deities). It is more precise to say that Buddhism is non-theistic.
There are various visions of God(s) acknowledged by various Taoist sects. It might be safe to say that there is not such a concept of a personal God (intimately involved with the created beings) as in Christianity.

The Creator is unchanged by the various visions and concepts that people have, and doesn’t disappear with the denials of atheists. Stephanopoulos….. one of those small god people, will not grasp this idea, and atheists will keep chasing their own tails, acknowledging the Creator each time they deny that there is a God.
Us atheists are from the " show me state" of faith.
Prove your claims and we'll sit up and take notice
But as always, you really have nothing in the form of actual evidence.
You might as well worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster...as least He brings tasty sauces.

That book made me wanna hurl, and I avoided Sparks thereafter.
 January 14, 2015 at 12:16pm
Wow! An Adult!!!
Good Job, Matt Walsh.
Nicholas Sparks was able to make me hurl, which is proof that he nauseates some females too.
many...not just some!
i don't read his style of writing and i picked up a book in an airport...it was left there! drivel, sexism, unrealistic outcome scenarios...awful! anyone who reads sparks must have their taste questioned!

EFFECT! The word is effect!!!!
The Blaze seriously needs an editor to repair headlines and content.
Actually, you're wrong. Affecting something will cause an effect. You can "effect" something in the sense of "effecting" (initiating) a change. It's usually said that way with a long "E" sound. However, I suspect my writing will have no effect on your thinking. :)

Having “Ethics” in the title of an academic course really doesn’t mean much. These days, an ethics class just gives people practice in “justifying” what ever feels good at the time.

The map data is constructed from ratios of fed and state revenue, without regard to such things as cost of the maintenance of federally owned land within the physically large states, and the interstate highway system construction and maintenance. It’s easy to lie with statistics and misrepresent the personal dependency of individuals in states with very low population density.
Most lefties can’t understand such math concepts as ratios and therefore would be relying only on the colors. pretty colors…

This map gives a bogus impression. It’s constructed from ratios of fed and state revenue. Notice that the low population density states tend to “depend” more. Notice the SIZE of the states. Now think about federally owned land within these states and such things as INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS.
This can be explained to the lefties who imply that the occupants of the red states are individually more dependent upon the feds.
It’s easy to lie with statistics.
Last time I looked Mississippi didn't have much federally owned land!

Transgender surgery is associated with a vastly increased suicide rate, so the prognosis for this kid going forward would have been very poor.
There is no known way to respond to a gender identity disorder which can assure the preservation of life. Blaming the parents is counterproductive and unnecessarily destructive.
Completely untrue. Stop swallowing spin and go and look at the actual conclusions of the research into such thing.
Medical intervention is on the contrary proven to increase quality of life and reduce the rate of suicides. Blaming people that drive the suicides (the people that preach social rejection and isolation) is *exactly* what needs to happen if you want to fix the problem.
If there is statistical research that will confirm that post-op gender transition patients are more prone to suicide, I'd be curious to see that. If you have any sources to cite on this, please do. I gave a thumbs up for the comment that blaming the parents is unnecessarily destructive, which I completely agree with, regardless.

Why is every single topic becoming morphed into obsession about the type of sex that people prefer?
Also……. is that all that those media people think about, 24/7? How do they get any work done?
Right on Pharmer1... You can't get an 'accurate' report from anybody in the Media anymore. It seems the majority of reporters that make up the Media are Gay, so now they have to infest everyone else with their every thought for the 'cause' instead of facing and reporting reality... Of course, they only hire more of the same, and it would seem that the owners of the Media themselves are swimming in the fudge pond also.
You're right, hypocritical bigots who have co-opted Christianity are always talking about "gay sex", and vivid imagery of "ram down our throats", etc.
If the claim is that their obsession with homosexuals is to "warn" of "eternal hellfire", I think everyone has heard it. Warnings received, now knock it off and quit fantasizing about what "gay sex" might be like. Let "free will" happen (hint: it's not about free will, as being LGBT or not is not a choice).

Here’s another pair of gay ADULTS, who recognize that there are some things of higher importance than people’s sex preferences, namely freedom of conscience. Good on them.
