It’s getting to the point where we pretty much have no choice but to bend to the left’s will. They are bullies who use dirty tactics to get their way. As soon as a law dropped that protected the freedom of the religious, the left mobilized. They began announcing boycotts. Angie’s List halts expansion in the state. The racists of the naacp threaten to quick hosting events. They use these tactics to make us bend to their will, not because they are right but because their ideals are hypocritical and can’t stand up to reason & logic. Affect Indiana’s revenue and unfortunately they will probably back down. Freedom is dying in this country…unless you stand on the left. I weep for all that our Founding Fathers and those who worked & fought so hard to make the USA what it was intended to be, only to end up like this.
The people of Indiana MUST fight this. Counteract the boycotts by seeking out businesses owned by christians and standing up for them, supporting them, and buying from them.

America votes a muslim into the White House and now he favors dangerous muslim nations. Those who saw it coming and tried to speak out were branded radicals and crazy. After all, that is the M.O. of progressives…take control through lies & deception (because facts, reason, & logic don’t back their ideals), then demonize anyone who stands against them in order to convince a weakened American public that those who fight for freedom & liberty are the dangerous ones.
We see this crap in movies, but it’s happening real world.
It's being attempted right now in Indiana. The progs absolutely hate the newly passed Religious Freedom law. The rattle on about "possible" discrimination.

Shame on you, Moliminous, don’t you know we’re not allowed to call them stewardesses anymore? Somehow, some way, that’s become offensive.

I take statements like this from people who come out AFTER THE FACT with a huge grain of salt. It’s possible she thought nothing of it at the time he said those things, but when you come out after something happens, you look like you just want attention. Kind of like all those women who came out against Bill Cosby, but only after someone did it first and the media began to rip him apart. It just always looks suspicious.
Sad to tell you [not really; the truth is the truth]
THE CO-PILOT OF THE GERMANWINGS AIRBUS WAS A CONVERT TO ISLAM
Evidence indicates copilot of Airbus converted to Islam and received order at radical mosque in Bremen where he stayed often.
German News Journalist Michael Mannheimer, 26 March 2015
Funny How I am the first American [non-journalist] breaking this story; huh?
This is nothing like the women who came out against Cosby. smh

Kenny, like you, I have a few add-ons to make my internet journeys a little more tolerable. Even with them, TheBlaze is still a difficult site to visit. But I’m not sure if it’s the add-ons blocking the picture or if it’s how TheBlaze chooses to post twitter posts. Anytime they want us to look at a picture that someone posted to twitter, I have to actually click on the link to see it. There’s actually 2 links in the twitter post in this article. The one beginning with “http:” takes you to the Daily Mail article (picture included). The one beginning with “pic.twitter” takes you to the actual twitter post that includes the picture.

Growing up in my small, midwestern town, we used to get a good amount of snow every winter. By the time I reached my mid teens, that started to change. The amount of snowfall decreased. As years went by, yes, we often saw mild winter temps. I saw something was changing, and NO ONE on the news spoke of global warming or climate change. Even with the changes I saw growing up, there was one thing I always noticed. One of my local news channels always gives the record highs for that day in history during the summer. 99% of the time, the record high for that day was much higher than present day and set decades earlier. No one at the time the record was set claimed mankind was warming the planet.
Our planet’s climate runs in cycles it’s going to do what it needs to do. We’re just along for the ride. Do I believe temps warmed in recent decades? Yes, I saw what it did to our winters. But I don’t believe scientists and politicians (especially politicians) should be running around yelling the sky is falling. You can’t predict weather, let alone climate, and they surely don’t know what our planet will do.
When they first started using the term global warming, they said our temps would continue to rise year after year. Then we started seeing record cold temps & snowfalls in parts of the country. That’s when they shifted gears, starting using “climate change,” and said climate change will cause variations from hot to cold. Uh huh. They simply don’t know. It’s impossible to predict.
Check the Almanac - 1936 for global warming....and mid 90's for freezing you "A" off.

She admits to what is in essence a government cover-up, it absolutely reeks of government wrongdoing, yet come 2016, liberal sheep will still vote to put this crook in the White House.

As mike79 asks, where is the freedom “FROM” religion found in the Constitution. I did not claim that the FFRF tried to stop christians from believing, but I’m not surprised by your attempt to spin my words.
Here’s some examples of the things the FFRF has done using their bullying tactics (threatening legal action against small groups they know will not put up a fight because you are cowards). A school office had a painting of two children with their hands together in a praying gesture. It hung there for over a decade, no one, not even atheists, complained. Not until this new America atheist group came along. Your precious group threatened legal action because you said that painting forced christianity onto the children. A stupid painting of two children doing something that looked like praying. Countless small towns & organizations threatened because local military memorials contain a cross. Your pathetic group forced them to remove the cross. Let me ask you this, why does your cowardly group only go after these smaller groups? Do you realize that many of our nation’s national cemeteries use crosses as gravestones for our dead military? Why don’t you go after them? Because you are cowards and you know if you did, you would meet severe resistance. You only attack the weak. The FFRF is the epitome of a bully. NONE of these things you go after push christianity off on you or anyone else. I am an atheist and you people disgust even me.

Someone who doesn’t approve of their military unit’s leadership DOES NOT write home and bash America. And when you’re in an active combat zone, you do not decide to take a walk to try to report your disagreements to another unit. If you ask me, the fact that he was in their custody for so long and never once appeared in a video proves that he left his post to join the enemy. They treated him as one of their own, then they used this worthless sack of crap to get some of their leaders back.

To hell with you, Takei! Nothing that happens in Indiana affects you or your male companion in any way. A business owner should have the right to deny service to anyone, whether we agree with their policies or not. It’s called freedom, look it up. Remember No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service? What’s next, is that going to be deemed discrimination?
Here’s a message to gay people in this country. You want to be accepted and treated equally, right? Well first, you have to stop demanding equality then doing everything in your power to set yourselves apart from everyone else. How can you expect to be treated equally when you yourselves demand special treatment? Next, if someone doesn’t approve of your lifestyle, TOUGH! We as human beings have a right to feel the way we do. These people aren’t going around verbally or physically abusing gays. No, they’re just minding their own business when someone comes along and forces them to reveal their feelings. That’s all, they’re just telling you how they feel. I’m willing to bet that all gays, and their supporters, disapprove of the lifestyles of certain other people. Many of them disapprove of the christian lifestyle. How is that any different? You are hypocrites. If you ever want to be accepted as equals, you have to stop trying so hard to be unequal. If a business doesn’t agree with you, go to one that does. STOP TRYING TO DESTROY THEM. That’s horrible behavior.

Maybe those people are overreacting by saying it pushes a gay agenda, but let’s face it…it is shoved down our throats practically on a daily basis. According to surveys, gays make up only about 3.5% of the adult population in the United States, yet every show on TV goes above & beyond to represent them. By the law of averages alone, if you have a random group of people, the odds of one of them being gay is slim. So how is it that there is always the token gay person on TV, especially reality TV when they select a group of people to compete at something? It’s because progressive America insists on shoving it down our throats because they think that’s the way to create equality. That’s not how you create equality. You can’t force people to approve of something. So is it any real surprise when people hear a song and think it’s yet another example of pushing it off on us? It’s funny…secular progressives constantly accuse christians of pushing their religion off on others, yet they have no problem pushing their progressive social agendas off on the entire nation.
 March 27, 2015 at 3:16pm
Cool, they can keep these cards right next to their Social Security cards and driver’s license, because we all know progressives have no problem with illegals getting those too.
Is it any surprise that a rep. named “Gutierrez” supports illegal Mexican immigrants? Once upon a time, people immigrated LEGALLY to this country to become Americans, period. Regardless of their last name and the nationality it originated from, all they wanted to be was Americans. That’s changed now. These groups, and our politicians of the same nationality, stick together and fight for one another instead of fighting for the country. As a resident of Illinois, I’m sorry this worthless sack is a representative of my state, but then again, a majority of our state’s politicians are just like him. That’s why we’re in such horrible shape. And IL is a favorite state for illegals to flock to because our govt. gives them so much.

I truly believe that there are many gay couples who actively seek out business owners such as the ones we read about in an attempt to make an example out of them. These gay couples could easily walk away and find someone who will bake their cake, take their wedding photos, whatever, but instead, they alert the media, contact lawyers, civil rights groups, you name it. They get their way, not because they deserve it, but because they threaten people. In essence, they are bullies, plain and simple.
March 26, 2015 at 11:04pm
When I put on my uniform many years ago, I was fighting for the freedom OF religion, not the freedom FROM religion that these atheist groups claim they have a right to. As someone who is non-religious, I still recognize the good that christianity has brought to our society and our country. I do not support these atheist groups, like the Freedom From Religion Association, who go around the country oppressing the religious freedoms of christians in the name of the Constitution. They are nothing more than progressive scumbags who want to rebuild the nation in their own image.
When my father and uncles- all Atheists- put on their uniforms in World War 2, they were fighting for freedom period. We have the right to freedom from religion. As the founding fathers said in the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli written under the direction of George Washington and James Adams, unanimously passed by a congress full of founders and signed into law by John Adams- the United States was in no way founded on the Christian religion. As a member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, we do not oppress Christians nor stop them from believing- only from inserting their religion into the government and yes, it is under the authority of the United States Constitution, supreme law of the land.
You are empire scum!
March 26, 2015 at 6:27pm
You sound like the people I run into on the internet every day who say, “Who cares if the govt. is spying on us. I don’t have anything to hide.”
March 26, 2015 at 6:25pm
@one.dakine – It’s not just my browser considering I absolutely do not have this much trouble with other websites I frequent.
I’m computer savvy, but by no means an expert. If theblaze.com plays its videos via Flash Player, there’s nothing we can do, correct? Or is there a way to watch videos here on theblaze using HTML5?
March 26, 2015 at 6:21pm
OK, Monk, let’s see what you have to offer. I’m using Firefox. I have AdBlockPlus, but it seems to help more than it hurts theblaze.com, so it’s fine. One anti-tracker add-on is Ghostery. That’s the one I have to disable completely just to be able to come here. I’ve added this site to Ghostery’s Whitelist so that it doesn’t even activate when I come here. In addition to Ghostery, I run Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe). I leave it running and it doesn’t seem to affect theblaze. Even with these, like I said, I still get Flash Player crashes and the main page of theblaze constantly refreshing itself (page goes completely white then takes a few seconds for the articles to load again).
March 26, 2015 at 5:58pm
I don’t necessarily believe it was an accident. Maybe the franchise owner didn’t know it happened, but I think the person who did it knew what they were doing. How in the world do you NOT notice you’re raising the flag upside down? You have to be a clueless moron to not see it. I’ll bet it was some snot-nosed employee who thinks him/herself an activist. They all do these days. And with the crap going around the country concerning police brutality, there’s been several instances of these groups flying upside down flags.
With that said, I do believe the bystander overreacted. Don’t get me wrong, if I had seen it, I would’ve went back too. But I wouldn’t went inside, got the owner/manager and given them a chance to correct the situation. If they had refuse, then and only then would I have taken matters into my own hands. This guy jumped the gun.

Let’s face it, he was a Marine. Not too surprising he couldn’t figure out how to untie a knot.
