    Oh? And the Bibles were removed in the first place why? For fear of offending some “non-Christians,” their words.

    Some non-Christians have been offended, and that’s not ok, but offending Christians, perfectly ok.

    But it’s perfectly ok to offend Christians, yes?

    If you don’t want to appear “favorable,” what difference does it make whether the Bibles are in the room, or at the front desk? Why don’t you just come out with it and say you either A., hate Christians, or B., pander to the people who hate God.

    Mankind has a long history of mankind on mankind warfare, persecution, and torture. Again, your comment is about as informative as Dawkins.

    Religion being a prominent reason for warfare, past or near past, is a myth. http://www.psmag.com/culture/myth-of-the-modern-religious-war-34617/

    Some clarification, just in case there is misunderstanding. I’m not picking on atheists. I’m pointing out what a load of habluey that speech was. You could insert and replace a number of different groups of people into that hogwash, and have it come out the same.

    Let me make just a few small changes…

    ” ‘What I do think about the difference between moderate atheists and extremist atheists is that, although of course it’s only a tiny minority of any sect which is ever going to get violent or horrible, there is a sense in which the moderate, nice atheist people make the world safe for extremists.’

    Moderate atheist people who are kind create the notion that “there’s something good about atheism” and that there are benefits to bringing children up to embrace humanistic, godless ideals. Such a notion leads people to believe in nothing without having evidence or the need to offer justification.

    ‘They’re entitled simply to say ‘oh that’s my belief, you’re not allowed to question it and you’re not allowed to ask me why I hold it.’
    .
    It is this very ideal that could lead to fundamentalism and extremism.

    ‘Once you teach people that that’s a legitimate reason for believing in nothing then you as it were give a license to the extremists who say, ‘My belief in nothing justifies if I am a suicide bomber or I’m supposed to blow up buildings because we are accidents anyway— it’s my belief and you can’t question that.’ ”

    Humanism: the idea that mankind is smarter than a box of rocks

    @Mykelb

    In the Reading Room of the Library of Congress, there are eight symbolic statues that symbolize civilized life and thought: Philosophy, Art, History, Commerce, Religion, Science, Law, and Poetry. Above the Science statue is the plaque, “THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD;
    AND THE FIRMAMENT SHEWETH HIS HANDIWORK.” (Psalms 19:1)

    Christians believed in education and sciences; they believed in studying God’s Creation. A good deal many of the historical schools and colleges were started by Christians, and school was made mandatory by Christians. In fact, until very recently, 90% of the country claimed to be Christian. Only in the last 50-60 years has church attendance been dropping, as whole communities of the past met and socialized at church. Yet our country has made more advances, more scientific discoveries and/or improvements over the last 200 years than the world made in 1000′s.

    Just who. exactly, is the brainwashed and ignorant one? Our belief in God has been our strength for 200 years, not our weakness.

    “We have been informed that the school’s football coaches have been using their position to promote Christianity on the football team by integrating Bible verses into functional team documents and team promotions in various ways,” read a letter sent to officials at Hall County School District. “Meanwhile, they have been either leading the team in prayer or participating in team prayers on a regular basis.”

    O M G the horror. O.O

    Everyday I feel more and more like I’m living in China.

    I don’t imagine there isn’t a person on this earth who hasn’t done something or another that might appear horrible out of context to a bystander.

  • [4] August 11, 2014 at 4:37pm

    Yes. The most disturbing part of this story is not the fight one side or the other, it’s the fact that those women weren’t arrested for public lewdness.

  • [8] August 10, 2014 at 12:58am

    You don’t get it. Doing business with Planned Parenthood or for a gay wedding are equally morally abhorrent. If I did own a dress shop, or a cake shop, and someone asked me to supply for a function celebrating a divorce, that would also be equally morally abhorrent.

    None, and I repeat, none of these Christian owners that have made the media have refused to serve gay cliental. What they refuse is to participate in a function that they have a moral objection to.

    Your comprehension of the legal aspects of discrimination run parallel to Obama’s comprehension of faithfully upholding the Constitution and American Law. Homosexuals are not a race. Homosexuality is a behavior, pure and simple, and behavior is what we make laws to either curb or promote. Turning a behavior into some kind of pseudo race is making a mockery on the point of having Law. The point of Law is to bring order, not decimate it.

    Let me be clear. I don’t believe in criminalizing homosexual acts. What people do in their house is their business. That is an American freedom. But when you skew and scheme to change something into what it isn’t on a public scale, you make it everybody’s business, this article being just one very clear example on why. However, it’s really just the tip of the iceberg. Real repercussions take around 40 years to develop.

    I think there will be more and more children pulled from public schools and placed in private or homeschooled, as parents increasingly decide whether the bigger house or their children are more important to them. Only those who are of the poorest and truly cannot tighten the belt any further, and those with zero morals, will be left.

    Obama, however, is doing his best to make sure all people are the poorest of the poor.

    You have no clue what that parent does or does not allow her children to be a part of.

    That is no more true than it is that restaurants can’t give out senior citizen discounts.

    You don’t have to believe in a Higher Power to be grateful for your food. In Japan, they say “Itadakimasu” before every meal, which means “I humbly accept (this food).

  • [10] August 5, 2014 at 2:12pm

    No, I don’t understand the situation at all. What I see is a few religion haters wanting to keep everyone else from engaging in religion, and trying to use a backwards “interpretation” of the Constitution to do it. “We’re protecting religious freedom by suppressing religious freedom.”

    No, I don’t understand at all.

    We have 3 of these Bibles, which my husband acquired during his service 10 years ago. No one forced him to take one. He also gave one to my brother, who later enlisted.

    God bless our troops.

  • August 4, 2014 at 11:26am

    Same to you :)

    Good day.

    There is no validity to the separation claims. The rest, admittedly, is hyperbole.

  • [95] August 4, 2014 at 11:10am

    Handing out condoms to “prevent pregnancy” is like handing out aspirin to prevent colds. Treating one symptom, which may or may not even help that symptom, while completely failing to address the true cause and prevention of the illness in the first place.

    If you want to stop teen pregnancy, stop acting like sex is a meaningless recreational activity. This is a national wide, cultural problem Americans need to fess up to and address.

    The people citing “separation of church and state” violations are the same who claim there is not a “smidgen of corruption” regarding the IRS.

    If that’s what you chose. :) I’d rather be here longer with my children and grandchildren.

    I’m not Seven Day Adventist, but that sounds more or less like my diet. I haven’t always eaten that way, however.
