    “He pointed out that he was elected three times as a Republican in a deep blue state”

    That’s not really endearing to us.

    But was the order lawful?

    It is not lawful to discriminate on the basis of religion. It’s not lawful to tell a Christian to take down Biblically themed messages of inspiration if non-biblically based messages are allowed if the objection stems from the fact the messages come from the Bible.

    Reacting positively to the generosity and repentance of another is not greed.

    They don’t sell it here because Americans know better than to drink yellow Snow.

    Yeah, I went there.

    Budweiser is one of the worst beers I have ever drunk. Market share is not representative of quality.

    And, for the record, Bud is NOT an American beer. It’s owned by Belgians.

    The god of Islam is not the God of Christianity. There’s nothing controversial about it to me.

    Anyone can claim they are the same, but it does not make it so. I can claim my neighbor is the same god as the True God, it does not make it so.

    Take a stand against bullying! (So long as the bully is comfortable with it).

    The Progressive Republicans see it’s way too likely a Conservative will get the nomination right now. They need a John McCain to get in and steal the nomination.

    “’I want you to know that I think this shirt is really in poor taste,’ Heidi Harting wrote. ‘I know we have turned in to a country of ‘you hurt my feelings and I don’t like it so stop’ but this is something a little deeper then[sic] that.’”

    Only because it’s your feelings this time. Stop whining about inconsequential things. It’s a T-Shirt. It doesn’t diminish what any Marine has done on Iwo Jima or anywhere else. At least no more than the second time they did that raising to make a better photo op.

    Nothing worse in the tech field than a micro-managing boss. You can’t get any work done.

    It looks like this is going a step further and getting rid of the middle-managers altogether. I would surmise that a large part of the 14% who did not stay were middle managers who saw the writing on the wall.

    If I may expand upon what eyedr54 wrote, this is a stumbling block for atheists and a struggle for many Christians as well. The world today is not as God intended for us, but He did allow its corruption because of our choices, so regardless, you can choose to blame God fir it’s current condition.

    We are made in His image – that means we share the characteristics of God. We are curious because He is curious. We are industrious because He is industrious. We get jealous and we hate because He gets jealous and He hates. When we chose to rebel against Him, we corrupted ourselves so we do not always focus our jealousies, hatreds, loves, and curiosities in a Good direction. God allows this because, as He is Free, so to should we, created in His image, be Free.

    So, to answer the questions:
    The tornado was created by the normal forces of weather on this planet. Since we rebelled against God, He no longer protects us from calamity. Therefore, natural disasters strike because they are a natural part of our ecosystem. None of us are truly Good, all of us have rebelled, so even the “best” of us is subject to this curse. Why the verse? To offer hope to those who survived. To remind us He is still here and still loves us, and, in-spite of everything, is calling us to Him.

    God is in Control of everything.

    Nothing happens outside of God’s ability to control it and all things work toward God’s plan in the end. That He allows us to make our own choices and that those choices may lead to suffering for us and/or those around us does not mean He is not in control of those things and that the ultimate outcome will be for His (and our own) Good.

    At the end of the day, the righteous are blessed and the wicked are cursed. Here in the middle of the day, we may not see it so clearly, but He guarantees the results at the end of the day.

    Yep, that’s right. Instead of being indoctrinated with Christianity with its tenets about helping the poor, feeding the hungry, all persons being created in the image of God making no one person more valuable than another, sacrificing ones own best interests, they are being indoctrinated in atheism and its tenets that there is no one more important than yourself, there’s no need to look past what you can take, and if something displeases you, grab power and destroy it.

    Yeah, much better.

    Only in America can a classless, tasteless buffoon use his own ignorance to make millions of dollars. Funny how he turns around and blames the people who made that possible for all the ills in his life.

    He’s under no (legal) responsibility to return those items. They may not even belong to the previous owner, but one prior to him. He has a sense of honor that is almost unique in this day.

    I specially liked the cat conducting the others. That was a nice touch. I thought it was amusing, myself.

    “I don’t think anybody would approve of that”

    I do, and I have had several pet cats.

    If he had been really clever, he’d have called an auto glass company out and paid for the damages up front. Don’t involve the cops at all.

    He broke a window, he should pay for it.

    Nope. Still hate them.
