Marriage and divorce should not be within the purvue of the federal government. Unfortunately what this ruling means is that the law will be used not only to allow same-sex couples to marry but it also means that anyone whose religious beliefs or personal convictions run contrary to that ruling will be persecuted…in their jobs, social life and political lives. Watch as it is used as the “bat” to beat “wrong-thinking” people into submission.

Not offended bud…just pointing out the hypocrisy. Liberals screamed with outrage at targets being placed on Democrat candidates’ photos a couple of election cycles ago, around the time of the Gabby Giffords attack by a flaming liberal, and blamed the attack on Conservatives. Bullseyes, of course, incited the attack. So how is the benign response and justification of the AP not hypocrisy at its best? Your double standard is wryly amusing. Most of us are inured to your offensive behaviors. We expect it.

Sorry Zorro you don’t live up to your “handle”. Coulter is smart, savvy and full of spit and fire. I don’t always agree with her but I do agree with her on this. Third world immigrants often do not assimilate the into the US culture anymore because they are held to no national standard of behavior. Immigrants used to have to have a desire to live the culture and appreciate the blessings of freedom. Now the government gives them all sorts of benefits upon demand and let them trash the laws and the country while telling the citizens that they need to appreciate diversity.
The plan for America since Woodrow Wilson is to make America socialist. Under Barak Obama its focus has been to make America like other countries but not by lifting them but by tearing down the standards, laws and morals of the people here. When it’s finished they believe we’ll settle for the minimum standard of socialism.

Well said. We are asked by God to love all His children and also to speak truth and live his commandments. Bruce has made a choice to be Caitlyn and will answer for his choices when he accounts for his actions at the last day…as we all will. I’m sorry he made the choice that he has and I don’t think that Matt Walsh was mean. Kindness and honesty are not mutually exclusive.
This was a good article and the thoughts expressed are reasonable and fair.

She couldn’t pay for the child? Why? A law? A law that vilifies compassionate giving? Wow…that’s hard for freedom lovers to digest.
It all comes down to the idiots lose control if someone helps someone else out. I have never been able to figure out what makes people in politics think that once they are elected or appointed to office they instantly become smarter than the rest of the population.
I believe the law said she could not give free food, but I don't think it said she could no help a student with monetary means to purchase that food. But I'd have to read the law/rule/regulation or whatever level of legislation it exists in, could even be a disclaimer on a web site for pity sake.
I don't believe there is any such "law". If someone could find it on the books I'd be interested in seeing it. I believe there was a district rule, and if she was aware of the rule and broke the rule, then I think they have cause for firing. Remember...it's not like the kids forgot their lunch money one time. They get fed regular meals three times before they finally get a cheese sandwich. And at no point do they ever go hungry.

LOL David Brooks has been smoking too much Maryjane for the last six plus years or he’s being paid off…maybe both?

No wonder the younger generation is replete with idiots…they’re being taught by idiots!!
Idiots that are trying to make kids deathly fearful of firearms. If the schools are devoid of any conversation about guns, then it will be an easy task to some day propose a new constitutional amendment truncating our once un-infringable rights to bear arms. Schools no longer exist to educate kids...they exist solely to grind out useful idiots.

Isn’t it interesting that the government uses our tax money to propagandize us? There will be no liberty left with these types of regulations.
So advocating for clean water is a threat to your liberty?

Coulter was speaking of the Mexican culture of lawlessness and embracing socialist/communist governance. All Mexicans need to take responsibility for what they have supported, allowed and embraced …. as we Americans will ultimately have to do also.

I’m sure that they were alright with only getting one line…because they also were the beneficiaries of the prayer and were instruments in the hand of the Lord. When we acknowledge the Lord in all things we receive greater blessings. :-)
No, I'm sure they werent. I know quite a few EMTs and when it gets late and we sit around talking, it gets real obvious how underappreciated they are. Normally it's the ER staff that gets the credit. Now you want to give the credit to some teen and your Deity. The credit belongs to the people who are fist on scene at the crucial point and keep that person alive.
@tc5bwe: So in other words your diety is fully responsible for saving people and righting wrongs through his/her human representatives, but will only do so after receiving a certain amount of groveling and @ss kissing.... Heck of a diety ya got there.

Mediate just wants the argument and to bash Christians. They’re not up for anything reasonable like…a discussion, a free exchange of thoughts or ideas…or accepting a clarification statement. Really…who in the civilized world would want that?
 May 19, 2015 at 4:17pm
This was a drill for law enforcement but not for the children. A better method of response training for children is a “what can you do if…?” type of discussion and training. Teaching people young and old to think quickly and act because they’ve already thought out best ways to act in certain emergencies is a much better response training for children. Instead of scaring them they need to be giving them the power to think and act in dangerous situations.

“Let me underscore, the United States keeps our commitments,”….no it doesn’t any more. Tell the nation state of Georgia, Ukraine, Israel, and the American people among others that that is true. Under this administration…no one is safe from their duplicity. We all have a right to “be afraid…be very afraid”.
 May 6, 2015 at 6:52am
As we have unpinned from God and his commandments, we have unpinned form the Constitution. When we are cowed by an ideology that claims control over everyone who doesn’t live as they do, then we have a people who fail to willingly obey God and who subject themselves to Satan’s plan to force us to do as he wants.
Our freedom to speak allows us to say what we may as long as we aren’t advocating and enacting open rebellion against the law of the country.

Something that isn’t being addressed is what happens to institutions that believe and practice their religious conviction of marriage is only between a man and a woman. We’ve seen what has happened to small businesses whose owners are trying to stay true to their religious conviction where the state has punished them with malice. A ruling that changes the meaning of marriage will cause religious persecution to become the norm and none will be allowed to worship with freedom of conscience. This slippery slope will be treacherous at best.
Blacks were defined as 1/3rd or 2/3rds a human in the Constitution .. that definition was changed….so what’s the problem here?
Now bare with me: Didn’t the state punnish the music downloader ‘with malice’ by assigning a $1.6 judgement against her? So decent citizens shouldn’t illegally download music, and decent citizens shudnt discriminate against gays…. both acts cud bring fines, and apparently downloading music brings MUCH harsher penalties, BY A FACTOR OF 10X….What’s the problem here, again? The sky isn’t falling like you think it is, man… you’ll be JUST fine…
There's a major leap between legalising homosexual marriages and religious persecution, a leap that isn't based on logic or reason. At least you admit it's a slippery slope argument. In all likelihood, religious institutions would be given exemptions and would not be required to perform marriage ceremonies for couples with which they disagree.
What do you mean it's not being addressed? Have you been living in a ditch since March? Ever hear of the RFRA? Mike Pence? This has been headline news ever since Republicans decided that Christian florists and bakers were the final line of defense against gay marriage. You should pay more attention.
tc5we yes, this is one of the consequences that is not getting a lot of mention. Churches by law will lose their tax exempt status should they go against their religious conviction and refuse to marry anyone other than a man and woman. Another back door to limit or totally do away with religious freedom, your post is spot on.
 April 28, 2015 at 3:16pm
This is a case of two laws in conflict and the “higher law” should take precedence. The Constitutional…Religious Freedom law stands as the higher law but progressives have decided to attack the Constitution piecemeal in order to destroy it. As long as special interest groups have the ear of the courts and are given a right to seek their own special interest over the freedom of the Constitution then cases like this will be seen.
I sympathize because true religious freedom is being trampled by those who want to dictate all behavior and who tolerate nothing but their point of view.

Don’t underestimate Ted Cruz or the people. We’re so tired of the McConnels, Flakes, Collins….etc. They sell out the people of this country for their own profit. The hypocrites are the RINO’s and we see who they are. Cruz is principled, understands the Constitution and he works for the people who cast their ballots not for the “party”.
Criticize all you want but know that the Republican leadership and those who support their end runs around the people are destroying the liberty and livelihood of the people of the country.

In every country where anti-gun laws have taken the rights of citizens to carry their own firearm or even have one in their home, crime rates have increased as well as the tyranny of their government.
In the minutes of response time for law-enforcement to respond to a 911 call, criminals with guns or other weapons, can and do wreak havoc upon law-abiding citizens who have been rendered helpless by the people who disarm them for “safety’s” sake.
In gun-free zones, people who ignore the laws find a treasure trove of victims because no-one can effectively fight back.
It doesn’t mean that you have a vigilante society but it does mean that you have a vigilant society. Respect for the use of weapons is learned and disrespect for the unarmed is also learned.
As for your statement “statistics clearly show that the per capita gun violence increases when the the number of individuals carrying guns increases”…Hmmm not so much JRook. Your statement is incorrect and the stats not credible.
Lastly, many, many college students are adults, retired military, mature, and already allowed to vote, serve their country, consume alcohol, take out loans…in other words participate in adult activities and according to you suddenly irresponsible even if they’ve been properly trained in the use and safety of gun ownership. You make no sense at all and are clearly anti second amendment. The American founders were clear, responsible and wise when they included the Constitutional 2nd amendment.

Perhaps you read a different open letter to Mr. Obama from this coach than I did. The teacher’s comments were referencing Mr. Obama’s claims of Muslim history in the US. The Iranians were allies of Germany and Italy during the second WW and have, in the cases cited, shown that they are more negative in their relationship with the US than positive.
This teacher under the Constitution has the right to free speech but not, apparently, at the school. (Schools these days have become tyrants who limit freedom of thought and speech) He did not attack Muslims students verbally or otherwise which seems to indicate that he was asking the President of the USA to defend himself on the question, NOT his students. He shouldn’t have been fired or in any way disciplined because he did nothing wrong.
JRook…you unfortunately are the real bigot.

Whoa!! I’m so-o-o-o-o-o-o surprised!! The Holder justice department won’t indict? My my my…who would have thought?
If anyone thought that there would have been an indictment then I’d have to ask what they’re smoking. Washington doesn’t believe in truth or following the laws so this was a no brainer.
