    @ slade,
    Yes, I agree, not all atheists are like that. I don’t think the people making the movie intended it to seem that way either. That’s why at the end, Josh pointed out that the professor was not so much an atheist, but an anti-theist. The professor hated God, something that he said he didn’t believe existed. Therefore in reality, the professor was not an atheist at all. He was a man hurting and angry with God. That may not be the case for all people who are atheist, but I’m willing to bet it’s the case for most who are anti-theist.

    In any case, it’s a movie meant to reach hearts. However, in a movie that reaches out to people covering hurt with hate, it’s bound to get some hate directed at it.

    I generally agree with you, although I don’t think the comparison of the tree from Eden to Cross is a stretch. Before seeing the movie, however, I felt that God made trees and regardless of what the origins of the Christmas tree are, in my house we decorate it to celebrate Jesus’ birth.

    However, I do not have a Santa Clause in my house. I have felt that he has been used to replace what Christmas is about. Even after watching the movie, and gaining a greater respect, and perhaps some disrespect if he really beat the guy that way, I feel Santa Clause has become much too commercialized to convey the meaning of Christmas. I think even Saint Nicolas himself would be displeased.

    Despite my thoughts on the subject, I’m not the bah humbug person of the movie either. I don’t walk into parties with a chip on my shoulder expecting that other people think of it the way I do. Being the wet blanket for a Christmas celebration does not please the Lord either. The greatest of these is love, and love is what I have to give. I think the message Kirk had was excellent, and I hope people take a closer look at the meaning of Christmas in their hearts.

    Kids and I saw Saving Christmas yesterday. I’m not sure what to make of it. There isn’t really anything of its “genre,” if you can call it that, to compare it to. I suppose rather than a movie, it’s really a message. A good message. Some people will genuinely dislike the movie for its art, and some will like it. I very much doubt, however, that most of the atheists down-rating the movie even saw it.

    “God is Not Dead was particularly cringe inducing.”

    On this line, I cannot take your post seriously. God Is Not Dead is a great movie. I went to the theater to see it 3 times, and bought it on DVD as soon as it came out. Given the success it had at the box office, I think I’m safe in thinking a lot of other people agreed with me.

    “Since 2012-13, our statewide enrollment has increased by 27,512 students.”

    How many of those are illegal immigrants?

    Ferguson is burning, but meanwhile God-haters are proud themselves for “helping” to kick God out of school in a decision that probably had nothing to do with them.

    Looking forward to this curriculum, Mr. Green. ^^

    At this point, anyone not critical of Obama is an enemy of the Constitution. Let them all write, speak, and criticize. The consequences of not speaking out are more dire than the consequences of.

    There is no “right” to any of those things. There is no “right” for anyone to possess, in hand, a product, regardless of how basic it is. There is only the right to have the opportunity to acquire it yourself.

    If you choose not to acquire it, that is on you. If someone helps you if and when you were unable to attain it, that is charity. If the government comes and takes your hard work and gives it to another without your consent, that is abuse and theft. Obamacare is a tax without consent.

    The site largely bases its findings on Christmas items. For instances, if a company is saying “Holiday Tree” instead of “Christmas Tree.” It doesn’t matter what faith you come from, you can show respect for others and for other traditions.

    I wouldn’t call a menorah a “holiday candle.” I don’t think they would appreciate it.

    Has he found evidence that some are born pedophiles too? Being born disposed towards certain behavior is irrelevant. The argument lies in what effect behaviors have on the public. That is the reason for the existence of government, to aid and guard public order. If it were about letting people do all that they wanted, there would be no purpose to having a government.

    American government has been unique compared to other forms of government in attempting to allow for maximum freedom while maintaining law. The argument here should always be, are these demands a freedom under the Constitution, and do they aid or disrupt public order?

    Homosexual acts themselves by two people in the privacy of their home does not disrupt public order. When demands are made for the public to fund said acts in any way; when children become involved, particularly in the area of adoption; when religious freedom becomes violated… the first and #1 freedom in America, then public order is indeed disrupted.

    Agreed. Broccoli is probably my children’s favorite, or maybe asparagus. That one might be the new fav.

    Personally, I love leeks.

    No kidding. Bubblegum broccoli sounds absolutely gross. Broccoli tastes yummy the way it is. (/ tongue in cheek )

    How much you learn and earn means nothing if you are spending it all to pay back student loans.

    The first amendment does not in any way imply that the government cannot endorse religion, nor does the dumb test apply here. The government showed no favoritism in allowing any and all to participate, and those who participated were free to paint what they liked. By painting it over, now what is shown is a hostility to religion.

    The break is in place because of Christmas. Without Christmas, there would BE no winter break particularly between the dates of Dec 25 & Jan 1.

    If someone doesn’t celebrate Christmas, bah humbug to you, fine. But do not complain about the holiday while enjoying the benefits of it. Selfish, self-absorbed people.

    As did I. :)

    The government has no jurisdiction over churches. They don’t have to have their “status” taken away, because the government doesn’t have the authority to impose it in the first place.
