    Praying for the families and teachers….praying for the lives lost and destroyed….praying for the wisdom and discernment of our leaders as the gun grab rhetoric is shouted from across the skies. A similar tragedy occurred in China today, 20+ children at an elementary school attacked by a nut with a knife.

    A black guy? And a white guy? It’s hard to believe Al Sharpton is not all over this. This is clearly a hate crime motivated by race. Civil rights have been violated!

    Bulletproof, “Here’s” is not misspelled. Why don’t you check out The Elements of Style by Strunk & White; it’s a great resource for frequent writers.

    Hi Bulletproof, “Here’s” is not a grammatical error. The Elements of Style is an excellent reference tool for writers; check it out

    Bill Maher’s opinion of Clint Eastwood is as completely irrelevant as his opinion of Sarah Palin. Whether he’s defending Rush Limbaugh or attacking God, all I hear coming out of the large hole below Bill Maher’s nose are the snot-nosed ramblings of the uneducated, the condescending, the insecure, and the whiny. He wants so much to be liked that he’ll do or say anything to anyone at any time merely to gain approval.

    Q: Why should I care what he thinks about anything?

    A: I don’t. In fact, you couldn’t pay me to care any less what he thinks.

    Really, Nancy Carney, that’s the best explanation your highly educated mind can come up with – that Christians kneeling down to pray is a punishable offense because other students were blocked from getting to class?

    Have you ever tried to walk down a high school hallway when students’ lockers are open? Why don’t you discipline every student for loitering in front of an open locker? Or by the bus? Or in a cafeteria lunch line? Why not discipline everyone who stops use a water fountain or drops a pencil in the hallway?

    Would you discipline students with walkers if they moved too slowly in the hallway? There’s no easy way to pass a student using a walker without running the risk of knocking him or her down. If that student were knocked over, would that be a punishable offense if he or should couldn’t immediately get up without blocking pedestrian traffic?

    Would you discipline students in wheelchairs if they stopped in the hallway between class to talk? It’s really hard to get around two stationary wheelchairs in a hallway you know. What if a student in a wheelchair dropped a pencil next to another student in a walker who was getting a drink from the fountain?

    I appreciate that your job is to keep our students safe from harm. Keep up the good work!

    Is anyone else but me skeptical that science can tell the temperature on a planet 3.6 quadrillion miles from earth is a balmy 72 degrees when science can’t tell whether our own planet is getting warmer or cooler?

    Thank you, science, for finding an alternative to this whole “earth” thing. Voyager I, which blasted off three decades ago, is already 0.000306% of the way there (assuming of course it’s pointed in the right direction). Now I never have to worry about Global Warming ever again. (sigh of relief)

    … and the camera slowly pans to a dark, shadowy corner a few feet away where Rod Serling is smoking a cigarette and making an incisive remark about the irony and insanity of war.

    Look for Hollywood to Oscar nominate this short in recognition of its courageous “statement” in lieu of any artistic merit. Matthew Modine, who describes himself as a spiritual non-Christian, says “it‘s important that people understand that the film is not an attack on Jesus or the Christian faith and that it’s not condoning Communism.” It is equally important to understand Michael Moore is not a 1 Percenter, that Obama has Israel’s back, and that history will remember Jun-Aug 2010 as “Recovery Summer.” To Liberals such as Modine, doublespeak makes sense because truth is completely subjective.

    I’m sorry I didn’t go public with this sooner….

    After secretly snorting an oil drum full of cocaine during our six-month affair, Joe McGinniss and I had a one-night stand with a snow-boarding basketball star who was very very tall. I mean, Ann Coulter tall. Joe and I met this basketball star while secretly buying marijuana from a snowmobile dealer and some snowboarding friends, all of whom were either bad fathers or worse mothers. These allegations have all been confirmed and/or spell-checked by a semi-retired substitute school teacher in Bethesda who shall remain nameless because we’ve never actually met.

    Joe and I were going to elope but called it off when we couldn’t agree how to market our book. After a year trying but failing to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin, we got high all the time and just made stuff up. I wanted to call our book fiction, but Joe wouldn’t budge from his “this country was built on hard-hitting investigative journalism” shtick. Fact or fiction, the publisher didn’t care and at it up like candy – just so long as Sarah Palin was painted in an unfavorable light. So here I am, heartbroken. Joe, please come back to me. You got your way with the book. Don’t leave me like this.

    @godhatesfigs “Sounds like a lot of you Christians have fatwah envy.”

    As far as fatwa envy (learn to spell by the way), anger is a basic human emotion. Plenty of these people are understandably angry. There is nothing in Biblical teaching or accepted Christian tradition that can be said to correspond with a fatwa. Jesus commands that we pray for our enemies.

    @thelonious “For being such peaceful Christ fans, I’m shocked to see how many of you are wishing harm on him.”

    For being such an enlightened atheist (isn’t that how all atheists view themselves, enlightened?), you have a hard time being objective. Reading through 60 or so comments, most people seem to be either pitying this poor man’s Godless conceit, praying the Lord’s mercy on him, or inviting him to insult a less tolerant religion than Christianity.

    There is some name-calling, understandably, but wasn’t that really the point of this publicity stunt, to be outrageously insulting to Christian believers? If an offended Christian called this poor man names or used profanity, then this publicity stunt succeeded in causing the emotions of Christians to overcome their teaching.

    I haven’t read a single post where harm is being wished on this poor man. Maybe I missed one, perhaps some will be posted later, but being “shocked” by “how many” Christians are “wishing harm” is consistent with your selective view of the world as it exists (as compared with how you see it.) Atheists tend to ignore objectivity and observe/report facts that reinforce their particular view of the world, frequently at the expense of accuracy and truth. There are not a great many, or any, posts wishing harm on him, which is consistent with Biblical teaching – turn the other cheek and let God judge him.
