Definitely – that’s what I was asking myself when I read this? What’s one got to do with the other? The bottom line is that homosexuality is clearly spoken against in the Bible. Also, as a friend pointed out to me tonight, making a law allowing same-sex marriage would open the gate for any 2 individuals to “marry.” Men & boys, incestuous family members, adults with children (wouldn’t Islam support THAT!) , just to name a few. Also, this would be the end of free speech and freedom of religion as we know it. Christian pastors who oppose it on Biblical grounds would be forced to perform these “marriages” or be sued (or worse), business owners (like the bakery which was called to make a “wedding cake” for a same sex couple and refused was taken to court), and no one would be able to say a word in defense of Biblical marriage! We’ve sunk far enough already; This needs to STOP!

No- Tourette’s is involuntary – what they did was COMPLETELY by choice. It shows how tacky and class-less they (the gay activists) are. I’ve known quite a few gay people over the years, but none of them have been this rude and obnoxious. This kind of behavior takes a pro (activist). But the White House should have known better than to invite them. Well, (hopefully) lesson learned (or maybe I’m being too optimistic).

The Monk: Not reporters – he knows they are on his side. No worries there! (Unless some actually start opening their eyes and stop following like sheep).

Yes, I agree. Would they have been so cooperative if the request had been made by Romney? You know they wouldn’t, but the race card would have been flying! But because it’s Obama (as minority himself and liberal, not because he’s president), they probably laughed about it as they turned in their silverware. Wake up, people – he is not your friend! All he wants is money and votes – but he’s as much of a racial profiler as all the police that Latinos are always accusing of the same!

Seems very racially profiling of him. As it’s already been mentioned, I doubt that any of his la-di-da rich people’s fund-raisers have been asked to surrender any of their silverware. What an insult to Latinos! Would they stand (or sit) for that if it was Romney who required it? I doubt it. And really – forks? With all the automatic weapons he’s sent into Mexico, I think forks should be the least of his concerns.

Just as MANY people jumped to conclusions that were wrong and tried Zimmerman in the media, we need to be careful that we don’t rush to judgment ourselves in a case like this. This boy is in an HONORS class, which should say something first of all. Next, what is his record of behavior like? Has he ever shown disrespect for the flag or America in the past? If so, then let the consequence fit the crime. But until everything is out there about him, we need to be careful not to be guilty of the same nonsense we are seeing on the liberal side! Two wrongs still don’t make a right. Facts first!

You mentioned Muslims praying as if it were a hypothetical. In fact, they are already given space in (some, maybe even many) public schools, during the school day, to pray, at least during Ramadan, if not at all times for those who choose. So then, if that is already the case, why not allow other students to pray?
The idea of disallowing a church to meet in a (unused on weekends) public school building for prayer and services is ludicrous. What are they afraid of? It might “rub off” and make them Christian? It doesn’t work that way. If any other business – and probably other than CHRISTIAN religious organization – wanted to rent the space on a Sunday, I can’t see as they would be denied. It’s money in their pockets. They’ve been doing it for years. NOW it becomes a matter of separation of church and state? Ridiculous!

Muslim children are already given space in public schools to pray during Ramadan (and other times?) DURING school hours. So is that not a church vs. state conflict? But when churches want to pay to use the facilities when NO children (hence: no conflict ) are present, the state puts up a STINK! Unreal!

I don’t know anything about football and have only recently heard of Tim Tebow. But what I have heard of him, I am proud of, as I know his Heavenly Father is even more. He’s not doing what he does for the praise of men but to let them know who is really in charge and to give Jesus the glory. There will always be people like Press who are afraid of and put off by TRUTH (Jn. 14:6) and the FACT that they will one day be standing before Jesus as their JUDGE, like it or not.
I agree that Christians need to stand up for what we believe and make Jesus known in the public arena – and Tim is doing an awesome job of that, but I also have a problem with some “Christians” here who use the world’s (and Press’s) own language and insults against him. We must remember what Paul says about Spiritual Warfare! We do NOT fight as the world does. We need to PRAY for people like Press who are willingly ignorant. Jesus told us to pray for our enemies, and Stephen, as he was being stoned to death, prayed that God not hold it against them (because of their spiritual blindness and ignorance). Let’s be sure to follow the right examples here in order not to come across as rude and tacky as Press does. Would Jesus want us to talk like they do? I think we need to be careful and pray before responding. Otherwise, we’re no different than they are.

Unfortunately, there is nothing HOLY in this ad! It’s just another way to disrespect Christians and desensitize people to putting down Christianity as we already see it happening all over the world.
November 20, 2011 at 12:09am
It’s BEEN Muslims for a long time; they’re just getting bolder – thanks to political correctness. They demand – and TEACH – “Sensitivity” to their ways but give others no such sensitivity (like in the case of the Mosque and “Community Center” at Ground Zero!). The more we go out of our way to give in to them, the more they see us as weak and disrespect us. They use those who stand with them for their “freedom’s sake” and later (history proves) those “useful idiots” are first in line to be beheaded (such as homosexuals, Marxists, etc.). We need to wake up before it’s too late!

Once again they are using their favorite tactics – “Poor Muslim victims of discrimination” and using America’s PC attitudes and freedoms to ELIMINATE our freedoms! We need to seriously PRAY because they will INFILTRATE ALL our churches and Christian organizations, turning them on their ear under the banner of “religious freedom,” yet, as always, only one way.
November 19, 2011 at 11:38pm
Other countries have banned Muslim terrorist organizations but ours – because of stupid notions like Political Correctness – and our Muslim-sympathizing president – is in bed with them. We need to get him out of office first of all, before he destroys this country completely!

Whoa – I hate to see how he punishes students for saying “Merry Christmas”! Seriously, I’d like to see his awesome class as a teacher; doesn’t he have worse behaviors to deal with than people wishing each other well (what “God bless you” has become, since no one believes in the reason it was originally said)? He’s really punishing them for using God’s name, I’m sure. To make a big deal and call 3 words “disruptive” and “wasting class time” is just a ludicrous excuse. Just teach and stop wasting student’s freedoms of speech. I’ll bet he doesn’t dock grades for their use of truly foul language. But just don’t say “God” or you’ll fail. That’s the bottom line and should be dealt with by either talking to the principal or school board.
October 1, 2011 at 2:07pm
And I’ll bet you the teacher gets fired or reprimanded/suspended for doing so – unless it’s in the south – maybe.
October 1, 2011 at 2:01pm
Why do we even give this individual the time of day? And you are right, why would a Catholic institution invite him to speak? And then be surprised and horrified by what he says? Not too bright. I’ve been a special ed. teacher and when you have kids you know are just doing bizarre things (or saying them) for attention, you DON’T give it to them. I think this nation need to learn that. Sure, sometimes we need to take a stand (as in the case of Islam trying to take over the world or something like that). But people like Moore? Not worth responding. Just refuse to watch and listen to his nonsense. Just say NO.
September 23, 2011 at 2:16am
Especially since they don’t have any under Sharia law! Yet, they’re using the freedom to speak, in France, (as they are here, appealing to our pathetic Political Correctness) to (ultimately) take AWAY our freedoms and make us like them! Are we ready for “Burqas R Us”? I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t look good in black!
September 23, 2011 at 2:08am
If France doesn’t stick with their guns on this, they will be replaced by an Islamic nation. And our country should wake up and smell the falafals before it’s too late! As horrible a relligion as Islam is, straight from hell (read the Qu’ran if you need convincing) one thing you have to say for them is that these are people who understand dedication and commitment, if misdirected. If the Christian church doesn’t wake up QUICKLY, recognize our MISSION and our RESPONSIBILITY, to Christ and our nation as well as Israel, then we will deserve what we get in the end, which is what Islam wants: to extinguish us from the planet. Jesus WILL come and WILL reign, but He has put us here to partner with Him. But we can’t do much from our beds and lazy-boys! WAKE UP, church, before we’re SWALLOWED up, and we have no one to blame but ourselves!

Two questions for these atheists: 1) How do you feel about censorship (other than the Bible)? I suspect you would throw a FIT if anyone were to shut down some porno magazine because of “Freedom of Speech.” Yet, it’s OK to censor and “edit” the Bible. 2) What about the Qu’ran? You talk about immoral? Here’s a book that talks CONSTANTLY about killing all non-believers! It’s a total HATE book. Let’s see you editing or censoring THAT book! If you have the GUTS to do that, we can talk. Until that, I will ignore your nonsense, because your rants are gutless and irrelevant.
September 13, 2011 at 11:36pm
You can’t. They are mutually exclusive. The whole point of Christianity is that Christ came, God become man, to suffer and die in place of sinful humans in order to reconcile us back to God because we COULDN’T pay for our own sins. By trusting in HIS sacrifice, God no longer sees our sinfulness, but His blood covers our UNrighteousness so that, as with the passover blood of the lambs that God called the Jews to cover their doors with in order that the angel of death would PASS OVER their homes, God sees JESUS’ righteousness and attributes it to US.
Now, if this is the case, as Christ followers have believed for 2,000 years, why would we NEED to depend on endless cycles of death and rebirth (in this life) in order to EARN our way to heaven? In the New Testament book of Ephesians (2:8, 9), Paul writes this (and there are MANY similar passages): “for it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” The tragedy of this kind of wrong theology comes from not reading and knowing what you say you believe. Christians, before it’s too late and we’ve lost our freedom to read the Bible, it’s time to read and learn what it says NOW, so that we are not easily confused and deceived. The Bible warns that many WILL be. As with so much else going on and Glenn’s warning on those levels, the same applies here: WAKE UP and KNOW what you believe, Christians!
