They have no shame. In fact no one has any shame anymore.
I was going to say don't insult parrots, but I know from experience: birds have no shame whatsoever.

It’s interesting that, for the far left fanatics, only churches who tow the party line and their own non-profit slush funds (i.e. Clinton foundation) should be tax-exempt.
They want legislation to be able to punish those who disagree with them, or who will not conform to their madness of the world.
And yes, as you say, the Mosques and other faiths, will receive exemptions.

I’ve seen it happen far too often, as government officials thrive on the accumulation of power and of authority, to achieve their own end goals.
Progressive Slayer has it right on the money, as this has happened due to our own inaction, and in allowing it to build over decades or generations. Right now, the evil is free and not hiding behind any masks, and too many imitate the three monkeys.

Because its not about freedom, its all about control and power.
Until we choose to stand and fight, the darkness will win and continue to push as fast and hard as possible. God be with them in their effort, and may He bless our part of the struggle as well until we are free again.

The simple truth is the government official has been in cahoots with the Gay activists from the start. He is as blatantly biased and bigoted as one can get, and all the more so due to having office to where he can cause harm to others who will dare to defy him.
If the Kleins start a defense fund or such to assist with their legal bills, will a Blazer post mention of it?
Snow. They need to start a go fund me to fight them, it's a great idea.
And so any conservative Republican politician or govt official who has ANY 'association' with say.... The Family Reseach Council... Shall we say they are in cahoots with them and then biased and bigoted in all their decision-making and actions???

Absolutely Zappa, it works both ways. Bias in government is not right no matter what. If atheists want religious bias out of government they should want ALL bias out of government, otherwise they are one way pieces of crap.
And most atheists are…and I’m coming from a middle of the “road kill” agnostic Libertarian point of view. From my centrist perch Atheists are the nastiest of all humans, they make hyper-sensitive religious people look good.
On this issue, “the infamous Christian wont bake a gay cake” scenario, I see both sides as screwed up.
The gay person, especially on the Left Coast can EASILY find a gay bakery that will serve them better than anyone, but they purposely target a business they know is religious because they are piece of feces and want to stomp out any religion…unless it’s Muslim of course because tossing gay people off buildings to their death is perfectly fine apparently. You NEVER see a Christian ANYWHERE in the world, not even a crazy group pretending to be Christians killing gay people.
On the other hand, I cannot for the life of me understand why a Christian wouldn’t see contact with a gay customer as an opportunity to show the love of Jesus Christ…as an opportunity to be like Jesus and spend time with the sinner to try and save a soul. Jesus didn’t shun the sinners, he tried to convince them of the “Truth”, and in his case the “truth” is his Father, God, loves them all and wants them to go to heaven when they die.
Zappa....the only problem with your argument is that a "conservative Republican" would not violate a person's first AND fourteenth amendment rights....which is EXACTLY what Brad Avakian is doing.
He is suppressing the Klein's amendment rights.
Oh, and Snow,
I would give to such a fund in a heartbeat. I’m agnostic but support anyone unjustly damaged by ill intentions of others. I would give to help a gay bakery sued for not serving a Christian as well.
No one should force anyone to serve anyone they don’t want to, whether it’s right or wrong. A person has a right to be an ass…and I have the right to call them one.
I have given to many such funds and will always do so if I have the means.
I hope people would support my free speech too. As raw as my speech is, I should have a right to say or write it.
I taught my kids that there is an order in communications, You verbalize, you follow defensive actions, you escalate to mild violence and finally you end in life or death violence.
They have escalated it passed mild violence long ago. Black on white crime does that for you. Gaystop-ya is now doing the full on atheist attack. They are currently afraid that the sleeping giant will wake up if they use any violence, but soon they will start following the black culture thing and attacking innocent people for simply refusing to celebrate their sins.
@ Snow, @ prog and anyone else interested:
From bottom of article, under “The Church Boys” audio
A crowd funding campaign has also been launched to help them pay legal fees.
I’m not tech-savvy enough to also embed the url, but since it is already hyperlinked in story….
They had a go fund me page---gofundme took them and Baronelle Stutzman's pages down. They are refusing to help Christians persecuted for refusing to celebrate gay marriage (regardless of how ever many years of ANY other sort of service they may have performed--as in Stutzman's case) crowd fund. They are NOT refusing to help those convicted of violent crimes up to and including rape.

At least she cut him no slack despite their early life friendship. Wish more justices would do their duty and obey the laws and Constitution instead of putting party and ideology above everything else

Never has been, change the definition of words, and how they are perceived, teach such to the children, and in a generation you have changed a culture and its mindset.
This is how perversion becomes acceptable and tolerated, while the cancerous growth continues to kill the patient.
Too many people don't realize the seemingly "benign" public school system is an extension of government and has an agenda and world view and value system different from many parents.
ALL of this is the direct result of colleges and universities preparing teachers with programmed morality so they can further the destruction of America. These taxpayer supported institutions have been largely socialistic (visibly and truly communistic in reality) and all to often fountains of disinformation as they revise history to align with their twisted views.

More proof that progressivism is nothing but madness to the core.
She did not get the memo. He is not her child, he is property of the Public Eduction System.
I probably won't be popular with this response, but the school has the right (and responsibility) to decide where their money will be spent. And they can make that decision using whatever means they believe is appropriate. I know it's our tax money, but once they get it, it belongs to them. If you disagree with how the school is handling their money you vote new people in. But they get to make the call. I disagree that this parent should be able to decide where to send their kid, and have the school pay for it. The school is not saying they should make the decision on where he goes, only on where they'll pay for him going. I think it's reasonable, although saying that the e-mails cost $77K is absolutely ridiculous. I guess they are just incredibly inefficient.
It costs a lot of money to search for and reproduce emails. You conservatives always want everything for free. Why should the other taxpayers end up paying for the search for the emails?
Revolution is near!
Would that be commonIST core?
@Snowleopard----- Yep. I wonder how much time and money it took to find out how much time and money it was going to take.
Madness to the core... the Common Core!
...."Modern" Progressives are economic Terrorists
Ask the Christian Bakers...
These school officials are working in the wrong department. They should be working for AmTrak as they sure know how to run a railway.
There's an easy way to push back here:
Does anyone here think it's even possible that they spent anywhere near 4,687.5 hours discussing this one child? So how could it possibly take so much more time to simply collect the emails? They could literally retype all of the emails, and it wouldn't take 4,687.5 hours.
Come on. Call people out on the absurd. It's not difficult to see it.
Not just Progressivism but obfuscation. 4, 687.5 hours to compile e-mails. That's 1 year and 7 months at 8 hours a day, 7 days a week. I call B.$. Even if it took each member of the student's Resource Team a few hours each to collate and forward their individual e-mails, that couldn't add up to much more than 40 or 50 hours total. The hard copy reports would already be present in his file, copying them shouldn't take more than an hour or two. Either they don't want her to see the information (for any number of reasons) or they don't want a precedent set (either for the request or second guessing their determination on his best course). Also I think this flies in the face of the IDEA ( Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) in both spirit and letter of the law. All that said, if you render unto Caesar, you limit your recourse to hold Caesar accountable.
I agree Snowleopard,
So she's getting a FREE ride for her son on the back of tax payers but that's not good enough. She demands to choose where the free ride come from. I can't believe the BLAZE picks this up. It does cost money for IT staff to dig through email, it does cost money for office staff to dig through files. We don't know from the story what form the old emails are stored it, it could be tape backup. Which means they have to be located, restored to a temporary server, recovered, likely printed, and then the process repeated for every old tape to recover all the old emails.
The files if paper are likely going through multiple cabinets and more photo copying. This again costs the tax payers to provide information for this ungrateful mom.
Now before you say, you heartless SOB, how dare you question her special needs son getting a FREE college education, let's take a step back and realize where does it stop? Just like every reality TV star seems to have some sob story to go with their background, we all have burdens to carry in life. When we let the Government determine who gets what from the money stolen from the tax payers pockets we end up with stories like this.
I'm ashamed of how the BLAZE is reporting this. There are two ways to look at this and it's NOT always the schools fault. Walk a mile in the schools shoes dealing with all the special needs kids and their rights to FREE stuff. Once the FEDS got involved special needs became big business.

Simple, by denying nothing happened and that it is a political hunt, they can claim the role of victim instead of crook.
Just be clear that it is anyone who places conditions or criteria for what people are included under a particularly view of united that really seek to divide us. And it starts by not referring to individuals who have not actually directly or indirectly harmed you as enemies. Differences in ideology and beliefs are not grounds to ever refer to another citizen in a country founded on INDIVIDUAL freedom, liberty and self determination as an enemy. To do so is a clear indication you seek to divide.

So then, how soon will Obama order more of our soldiers overseas to help out and expose them to Ebola, while at the same time he will refuse to implement a travel ban to and from there, and demand US resources be sent there en mass to profit the local dictators and strong-men who will do little to help the people out?
Looked like some pretty tense moments there. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have gotten back in the Kayak to fight it some more.
Although, I would have retrieved my rod....and probably just cut the line.

So these morons assume you can tell an alcoholic to be due to eye coloration?
Uh morons, I have blue eyes and care not one whit for alcohol in any shape or form; the smell alone is absolutely repulsive. Conclusion – more money wasted on nonsense.

Why today is everyone supposed to, somehow, know what is offensive, discriminatory, bigoted and the like on sight and not, somehow (it is possible) be a legitimate mistake or misunderstanding?
It’s akin to the current rage against the Confederacy in history. The last name of “Lee” is now taboo in some circles, in reference to Robert E Lee, General, of the Southern Army. Yet in their haste to ban any and all usage of said name, they have not taken into account other people who have the Lee name:
Bruce Lee (of ‘Enter the Dragon’ fame)
Brandon Lee (son of Bruce Lee)
Also, examples include products such as “Sara Lee” maple syrup.
Take a look at what is happening to Donald Trump. While I agree that he should have chosen his words a little more carefully, this campaign to hound him out of public life is asinine. Just because what he has said is offensive to a certain segment of the population does not make it any less true, and surely doesn't rise to the level of the attacks on him.
Wouldn't mind seeing him out of the Presidential race, though.
Trump might get the last laugh out of the Mexican / Rapist comment. They just busted 8 illegal's ...Shocking....In Vegas that were part of a Child molesting ring...
I guess that's it for all of the Marvel comics from Stan Lee?
