    The so-called “green energy” is too inefficient to meet demands, so the end result will be less electricity. That means rolling blackouts for all of us.

    Can you guess who will never be subjected to rolling blackouts?

    Your question is nonsensical because you have no way to define morality. What makes an action moral or immoral? How do you know what you’ve done is either good or evil?

    Christianity isn’t about reward and punishment. In our system, atheists will get what they want, as well. Christians will enter into the presence of God, atheists will be removed from it. What we are really saying, is be careful what you wish for.

    Your argument does not make any sense. You proclaim God does not exist, then you attempt to hold Him to a moral standard that you can’t define in the first place. How can anyone respond to that? There is no answer because you cannot define the question.

    I don’t understand, Jonny. Aren’t atheists amoral by definition? If not, by what standard do they adhere to to define one as either moral or immoral? Popular opinion?

    What is the higher authority that atheists will site to define morality, so that you can then apply it to the God you claim doesn’t even exist in the first place?

    There are people who identify themselves as every make and model available out there that don’t give a damn about anyone other than themselves and their own appetites. Most of those types of people don’t understand anything about what they claim to belong to, just the simple act of belonging helps them fulfill their selfish desires.

    Murdering the defenseless is not compatible with Christianity. You can claim to be a Christian and support killing inconvenient persons, but if you do, you are not actually following the tenets of what you claim to be.

    Better to be naive about evil than an active supporter of it.

    Well she is at Harvard, so maybe, but she’s not in journalism, so it’s hard to say.

    So you haven’t read Nietzsche, either, then. You are just throwing support behind one of the big thinkers of your corrupt socialist dream world which has brought nothing but misery to those trapped in it.

    So a ten year sentence and a repeat offense right after his release. Israel will likely lock him away forever, yet Israel will get a black eye for this while no one even mentions what would happen to attendees of a gay pride parade in Hamas-controlled Gaza.

    Business owners ought to have the same right of free association everyone else is supposed to have, as further ensured by the 1st Amendment.

    I would not do business with someone who did business that way you describe in your questions, but the person must be given the right to run his business in a way that would lead me to want to boycott him. That’s a basic requirement of Liberty. Without it, we are only free if we would choose to use our freedoms in the manner prescribed by the government. Iranians and North Koreans are at least that free, too.

    The problem comes when such discrimination is encoded into law – which denies equal protection to the class discriminated against. Jim Crow laws were wrong for doing this 60 years ago. The “anti-discrimination” laws that sprung from that period are wrong for doing it today.

    Western Culture achieved what it has achieved based on the notion that all humans are made in the image of God and have dominion over the Earth.

    This is why that great societies the Arabs and the Chinese had built for themselves while Christendom was wallowing in the Dark Ages ultimately floundered and got left behind. The idea that each one of us is individually valuable opened the market to fresh ideas and endless innovation that lead to critical discoveries like Steel and the harnessing of Electricity, which, among other such advancements, enabled modern society. The Chinese invented gun powder, the Europeans perfected its use as a tool (in addition to a weapon).

    No other culture achieved what Western Culture achieved (without the West showing them how) because no other culture believed in the worth of common people as anything other than general, slavish labor. That realization comes from the notion that our worth is derived by our creator – we are created in the image of God, not some random formation of proteins and acids.

    Nietzsche put forth and defended the notion that, in order for man to progress, he must throw off the bonds of morality. It is morality that prevents us from reaching our true potential. Her synopsis of Nietzche’s philosophy using his famous quote is quite accurate.

    A $135,000 fine for refusal of one business transaction, which was also a “first offense” smells like violence to me.

    We are, indeed, a Republic in name only. When all three branches of the federal government routinely overstep their bounds, you cannot reasonably say the Constitution is worth any more than the paper its printed on.

    Gay rights and Religious rights would not at odds at all if the Constitution were fully enforced and equal protection under the law was universally granted.

    I hope this is, indeed, a turning point for Mr. Brown, but that comment makes me doubt. There’s nothing special about his struggle and he is, by no means, “extraordinary” in the trials he faces.

    His statement is not contrite, it is still filled with ego. He is not approaching God humbly, but defiantly.

    In other words, there’s nothing in his statement to indicated he has changed any at all. Being tired of a lifestyle is not the same as changing it. It could be a good first step, though, and I truly hope he finds the peace and joy we all seek.

    When will these people finally understand?

    Sexual assault is only a crime if it is committed by someone the left doesn’t like.

    I have faith in the system, but I also have contempt for the government that abuses it and disdain for the citizens who allow them to.

    “who instead of stepping on the bag first attempted to run down runner Kevin Pillar”

    The shortstop did this because stepping on second base in this case does nothing. With the runner advancing to first already out, there is no force-out at second. The runner must be tagged.

    Since he survived that rundown, he should have been happy to stay at second, though. That was the key error in the play.

    If anyone knows “ridiculous and sad,” it’s Obama.

    That’s where all progressives live. They want the world to be a certain way so they pretend it is and ignore all evidence to the contrary. The whole global warming debate is a case study in this kind of fantasy.

    Now that they are nuclear, it certainly does change the game. I have never really understood this conflict well, as a westerner – it must have something to do with Korean culture.

    Never in the history of the world has a nation so wealthy and powerful (South Korea) ever lived in such abject fear of a nation so poor in weak (North Korea). They would not need to fire a shot to topple Pyongyang. With their wealth, it would be simple to infiltrate North Korea and its government. They’ve had 60 years. Well, maybe a few well placed shots, in the end, but still.

    US Imperialism died early in the 20th Century – the last time Progressives had significant power in the US Government. If we fail to defeat them this time around, it will return in spades. The only way socialists can sustain the economy is if money comes in from someplace else. Places like Switzerland do that with tourism today, but the “traditional” way to do that was to conquer another country. Tourism will never sustain the US economy, so they will need to dig a little deeper.
