They better be paying taxes on those scholarships and money they received! Oh, they are 0bama's friends? Never mind, they don't need to...

If I recall right, slaves walked to the cotton fields. We should ban walking as some may be offended by this practice that aims to ridicule those in the fields. I think they even talked and sang, so let’s ban those too. I think it would be safe to just stay home and do nothing, or would that be offensive to those that have loved ones in prison?
Don’t we have databases for US citizens called the IRS and the DMV? Don’t we have databases for immigrants called USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services)? What is wrong with a database that tracks refugees? You know that the US government already tracks groups of people based on race, religion or other affiliations. What do you think the DHS does? Heaven forbid someone actually admit that it is done. It’s like hiring people to work for your company, but telling Human Resources to not make a file on the employee, because it might offend them if we had information on them. Having information is one thing, what you actually do with that information is quite another. I can use HR to screw the person over, or I can use it to know where to send their check or benefits.
But but…shhhhh….that would mean he is right….and actually give him good coverage. Like you said. Gosh forbid people actually stop and think before talking and to realize we are being tracked by numorous things…
Don't we have a database for both native born and natural born U.S. citizens, represented by the issuance of a BIRTH CERTIFICATE?
Oh, but the natural born Mooslims are exempt from this due to what? Sharia law?

Don’t we have a database called the Department of Motor Vehicles, The IRS, USCIS and the Voter Registration that can be used to track anyone in the US. What is so bad about registering with the US Government saying “I have been permitted into your country”?

I think they are still eligible. Let’s break it down:
“A. As per New Mexico State Legislation, home school students are permitted to participate in NMAA activities ONLY at the public school in the attendance zone in which they live.”
It does not say they have to be on a public school team, just, if they want to, it has to be in their zoned area.
“B. A home school student who participates on a public school team in the attendance zone in which they reside is eligible to compete for individual awards under the name of that public school.”
This means that IF they participate with a team from their zoned area, they are still counted as part of that team and can participate in individual awards on behalf of that team.
“C. A home school student’s participation on a public school team in the attendance zone in which they reside counts towards the final placement of that team in regards to any state awards.”
Simply, the homeschoolers scores will count toward the public school team, if they are on a public school team.
“D. Additional participation guidelines such as practice requirements, entry fees, etc. shall be determined by the individual activity.
E. Home school students are subject to any and all requirements set forth by the activity.”
Home schoolers will pay and abide by practice schedules as if they attended that school.
Someone has a grudge and/or has mis-interpreted the rules.
...but these researchers needed their government funding!
But this is completely different. They used raisins. A marshmallow would be harder to fit up the nose.

Dave: From what I understand, the daughter was given the opportunity to get baptized if she denounced they way her family lived and promised to not live that life. That is the same as asking a person from an alcoholic and abusive family to promise that they will never behave in the same way as they recognize it as wrong. This daughter was not asked to never see her family again, rather promise to never participate in that same behavior. She has the choice to comply or not. The church did not deny her request, they simply laid out the conditions that needed to be met and let her decide if she wanted to move forward or not.

Ignorance is Bliss!!!

UnderstandBothSides: Man, I miss the days where I was so ignorant on topics that I could say whatever I wanted because you can’t feel guilty if you don’t know any better. I wish I were you again.

Phoobared: That reference in Matthew could be referring to you. How can you pin it on Joseph Smith? It could be referring to Pope Benedict, Reverend Jackson, Billy Graham, Your pastor, Obama… If that is your proof, not much credibility follows.

AftertheFire: Isn’t ignorance bliss? You can say whatever you want and not worry about having a shred of truth to back it up. Spew on.

Sgt.Cookies: ” If you are not willing to even allow that child, who has not committed the sin of homosexuality, to learn the truth from your church, if you are not even willing to pant the seeds of truth in that child just because you are fearful, than you failed that child.”
You missed the point. The LDS Church has not said that the child cannot attend church classes, services or activities. It is more than happy to even have the Co-habitating parents attend these activities and services. However, it cannot approve baptism or other ordinances to be performed for these co-habitating couples, as they are not living worthy of them. It also needs to protect the child as mentioned above. You are trying to lump two different things into one keyhole.

Heaven actually consists of everyone who has ever lived on this earth (or been murdered by planned parenthood, as those infants also received a body of flesh and blood on this earth), unless they have received a perfect knowledge of God and rejected Him (ie, sons of perdition). Heaven is broken down into many “worlds” (see Corinthians 15) that will host people based on how they lived their lives in accordance with God’s commandments. Some degrees are better than others. Heaven is NOT just for the religious or those spiritually reborn.
Heaven only consists of those that have faith in Jesus. John 3:16, Romans 10:9, Matthew 7:21-27, John 3:3, John 3:36.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "they have received a perfect knowledge of God" but Romans 1:18-23 makes it pretty clear that none are without excuse.
Also, could you please point out the verses in 1 Corinthians 15 that talk about the many "worlds" of heaven. I read through it and wasn't able to pick it up.
rx4nv...Jesus said Unless a man is born again he cannot see the kingdom of heaven." That is John 3:3. The New Testament expands on that theme in various letters and the theme of ""by grace are you saved not by works lest any man should boast is not only in Ephesians but else where. As for the levels of heaven or worlds as you call them -- I leave that up to God. Ëye has not seen nor ear heard"what God has in store. But you MUST be born again. Jesus paid much too high a price for our salvation to be possible by any other means.

He says “I was surprised,” he told Hayes. “I was under the impression I was an american and that I had First Amendment rights and there was no problem with me going to an anti-police brutality protest and speaking my mind.”
You do have First Amendment Rights, but so do other people. Just as you can speak your mind about police, others can speak their mind about your moronic speech and behaviors. Americans have the right to attend or boycott your product. I’m surprised that as a business man, you do not understand that what you do and say may affect how people partake of your product.

Grover: What do ministers talk about? Sin and repentance. What is the point of allowing ministers in the jails/prisons and military, if they cannot talk about the thing they are trained to talk about? That’s like a comedy club hiring a comedian to do a routine, but then tell them they cannot tell any jokes.

Grover: Since when do you hang your freedom of speech at the front door when you go to work? Employees are individuals, not property. I have just as much right to say I do not believe in gay marriage while at work, as you have the right to be offended by it. Does that mean I cannot say it? No. I can choose not to say it, just as you can choose not to be offended. By me simply stating my belief on a topic, does not give you a right to be so offended that my right to say it is taken away so you can have the right to be offended. Now, if I was trying to force it upon you, if I was persistently in your face about it or you asked me to stop discussing the topic in the work place, because you do not support my views, yet I continue, then you may have a case. If I am at work and my co-workers are talking about football, yet I despise football, because of the immoral lifestyle it condones, should my boss be able to fire these men because they have offended me? To me, it is a moral issue, just as homosexuality is a moral issue. I think it takes a man to choose not to be offended. We have too many pansies in the world today that do not have any moral standards or convictions to which they can stand up and say “I don’t care what you say, I know what I believe and your belief cannot offend me”. I have been teased because I was a virgin until I was married, I have never touched alcohol, drugs or tobacco and I will never cheat on my wife, I can honestly say, I’m not offended.

I think it was best said “In order for gays to come out of the closet, they feel that they must put Christians into the closet”. So their freedom to express their feelings about sexuality must come at the expense of taking away someone else’s. This is the double standard world our government is working so hard to support and propagate at the expense of a majority of people’s constitutional rights.
