Asking for tasteful or respectful comments here is like asking for super-powers.
It's just not going to happen.
Here, the death of "certain" people is rejoiced.
Here, suggesting that Democrats and those that support gay marriage should be used as "target practice" is thought of as a good idea.
Here, when all 7 of a man's children die in a house fire it's common place to blame it on drugs or black people before the facts are known.
Here, blind followers and hatred for anyone not like you rules the day.
Sadly, this is what the new batch of Republicans what to call the "middle ground".

As a matter of fact this is not opening the door to discrimination against LGBT but closing the door against discrimination of Christians and others whose religion will be violated by government forcing them to act in a capacity that serves against their religious beliefs.

“Just words”. He should have known that the consequence of his words would bring this kind of action. I don’t believe that he is sincere. Stoking the flames is what he does best.

So done with the Republican Party!! McConnell fights harder against the Tea Party and conservative members of his own party than he does against the Democrats.Time for a party that listens to the people.
So, you've made contact with the GOP and told em you don't wnat to play anymore?
Then you must vote out all the republican Koch boys, they are destroying our country!

Strawberry411a seems to have had some bad experiences with Mormons and chooses to equate Mormon society with that of Sharia courts. I’m sorry that he’s had bad experiences.He also indicates that he feels that “they” have the courts, papers and everything else “locked in” to their way of life. If that were so then there would be no tattoo parlors, alcohol or coffee serving establishments, R-rated movies and so on. Anyone who’s been to the Salt Lake valley area knows that that is not so.
Sorry Strawberry…you may have some right to be angry but don’t back it up with … exaggerations.

What are you smoking? There are no Mormon Stake and Ward “tribunals” or anything like it that circumvent federal, state or local justice systems. “A mormon majority run the paper….” Maybe here in the south we should substitute Baptist, Methodist, or whatever. The clean up we need is to live honorably and do good to our fellow man without regard for whatever religion they happen to practice.
The article that we’re supposed to be referencing here has to do with Sharia courts that substitute their law for that of the laws of the land. Your comments veer off to your own prejudices and are without foundation.
Exactly. Religious belief does not trump US or state law. Maybe you should keep smoking whatever you are on....
Right.....you really have no idea what is going on. Any state or federal law that is ignored or circumvented over religious beliefs is acceptable to you then. It's just the MUSLIM thing that has you all worked up. No wonder this country is a mass of confusion and lies.
Strawberry, based on what I absolutely know to be any number of lies you've told in the previous statements you've made, I believe you are a muslim showing us the sort of lies that muslims will tell to us ” infidels” as long as they can get away with it. As such, I think you are a fine example of what we can expect from advancing the practice of Islam to sharia courts in America. Ooh ooh! I’m eating a HAM SANDWICH and some PORK RINDS RIGHT NOW and planning on having SAUSAGE for BREAKFAST!! Better to go to muslim h311 than to raise h311 to go to muslim heaven.

Perhaps you should be commenting on the topic of this article. You must be looking for the LDS ads because I haven’t seen even one yet.

The tribunal should not be allowed over civil and family matters at all. The laws of the State of Texas and the United States of America should be the only ones considered in this case. No state should allow them to operate as a shadow system. To do so is asking for more problems than we already have with people who operate outside the law and Constitution. Ahem…Mr. President?
What a wonderful blessing that she had her gun to protect herself. Adherence to company policy would likely have made her a dead employee. If the corporation policy allowed employees the option to carry then it would make people contemplating criminal acts toward Papa Johns delivery people more hesitant to act … but of course that is beyond corporate America’s ability to reason.

There is no foundation for the scurrilous accusations made in your comments. I’ve been “Mormon” for 52 of my 65 years. The Church does not “threaten” those who speak against the Church. This man has apparently been a Mormon from childhood but he shows his lack of understanding of the doctrine by his actions.

Wyoming has just opted out of receiving federal money for lunches and therefore blocked the federal government from meddling in school lunches. They also dumped Common Core!
Come on Texas…Let’s get out of federal handouts and become free from their control.

No it’s not right to name any group without significant evidence. It’s “funny” how liberals attribute any and all acts of violence in these cases to Christians when the resulting investigations prove them to be acts of liberals or “whackos” without any real ideology.

I hope that these were the sentiments of your posts when the Palin and Bush children were under attack.
Nevertheless, for “children” to be held accountable for their actions makes for an awareness for them of what messages they give to others. That awareness may benefit them in life. It may be a hard lesson but one that is necessary. They are of an age that they should be aware of these things.

I certainly wish that the press and the Democrats were even-handed about this issue. If these had been Palin girls then the comments would have been deemed as justified and there would (as the record shows) have been a rush to be the next to headline with their poor decisions. Should the Obama daughters’ clothing and demeanor been representative of the family of the President…yes. But who is to blame that they were not … their parents.

Did I read this correctly? Her dogs came into his yard, his property, and killed his dog…and she’s suing him. That’s audacity!
Non-violence may be the organizer’s goals but all they need are a small number of protesters whose goal is violence and they may derail the whole process. Thank you for freedom of speech. May those who protest remember that expressing their opinion is far different than forcing their opinion.

Think what you will but sometimes you have to walk through the “fire” to find solutions. Obviously Beck has had more serious medical help than most people and during that time was compelled to evaluate his life.
On the other hand, people like you have obviously not done anything in self-evaluation and are as vitriolic and negative as anyone could be. What you say doesn’t really matter but I feel sorry for your lack of understanding or compassion. You, Dennis and Verycobalviolet ought to get together more often…you sound like the sycophantic followers of each other.
@tc5bwe Such a response is all too predictable... Your statement reads metaphorically like the spouse of an addled drunk who cannot see what's going on from within, yet lashes out at others who see the obvious truth when they point it out.
Who is truly compassionate? Someone that tells the truth as they see it to someone, or someone who is an enabler? Charismatic people like Glenn Beck with serious psychological and addictive personality issues have a powerful ability to manipulate their families, friends and others.
Like I said, I bear him no ill will. I wish he would get serious legitimate professional help... the kind he needs.
He's not likely to do so, however. I've seen many cases just like his in my over twenty years in healthcare seeing many patients with history just like him. His psychosomatic symptoms are common amongst people with a significant addiction history and ongoing psychological illness.
He's more likely than not to continue this downward psychological spiral that will wax and wane until he really crashes and burns.
He will find many here who will enable him on his way down.
