    “yet why did he take five sling stones with him?”

    Transforming faith into action. He was God messenger and he had to deliver the message.

    The only legitimate function of government, the only clause which must exist if government is to recognize its authority comes from the masses it serves, is that its place is to take only so many rights away from individuals as to protect the rights of all.

    That is, if one uses one’s liberty to strip liberty from another, then the full weight of government is to come down on such a person so that that person will never desire to do so again and those who see it will think twice before doing so as well.

    This is why Satanists, who are actually just perverted humanists that love to hear themselves talk and get contrary reactions from any decent person within earshot, are allowed to spew their nonsense unmolested in public. Christians fought so that such as them regained the right to deride Christians and spew nonsense.

    Therefore, stripping another of liberty must never be guaranteed to anyone, regardless of made-up claims of religion.

    A few questions:
    1. Is 8mm a really popular wrench size?
    2. What’s a trolly coin?
    3. What any of this have to do with picking a lock with hairpins?

    The 911 thing bugs me, too. A friendly dog loose in the streets is not an emergency. A dangerous dog would be. If 911 brought them out, he’s going to assume the latter.

    From just the story, it sounds like he didn’t need to shoot the dog, but it also sounds like a set up to me, too.

    See? Global warming. That it is 20 degrees below normal where I am right now is just weather, but that is conclusive proof.

    Now I see. Islam is most certainly a religion of peace. All they require is everyone else give up any foolish notions of free will or liberty and we can all be happy together.

    And what’s more fun than tying up traffic for 20 minutes for the parade of losers? Having the convention isn’t enough if you can’t be endlessly annoying to the locals.

    It’s only a wash for those currently making minimum wage. Many people making over the old minimum, but under the new minimum become minimum wage employees. They lose buying power.

    Many of those in salaried jobs will not see increases with the MW increase, sot they also lose buying power.

    The hardest hit are those on fixed income, who will not necessarily even see Social Security’s cost of living increases.

    “Cindy Enriquez said at the convention that the $8.25 an hour she makes at a McDonalds in Phoenix makes her dream of going to college impossible.”

    Then it’s a dream she doesn’t care about coming true.

    I’ve seen some of their YouTube videos. They are too pathetic for primetime. He’s just trying to bait Hannity to get some undeserved attention.

    You can hate Christians and still love the liberties and systems of government they devised. It doesn’t make sense in historical context, but it is workable in a modern context because those Christians already laid down the groundwork to allow folks to take advantage of their culture while hating them.

    That’s a nice try, but it shows your lack of understanding of “hypocrisy.”

    That article reports a request that religious, not secular, but religious institutions be allowed to discriminate in hiring those who match the religious teachings of that organization. This has routinely been granted as it’s silly to force a church to hire an Imam or a mosque to hire a Rabbi. No one is saying an LGBT organization has to hire Christians who oppose that lifestyle, therefore asking for Christian organizations to not be forced to hire LGBT is not hypocrisy.

    Also, the article is not saying that Christians who run secular business should be allowed to fire an employee if they discover he/she is a homosexual, unlike the LGBT crowd that immediately calls for the firing of anyone who has any connection at all with a organization or piece of legislation they don’t like.

    And no, I’m not doing your research for you. Show hypocrisy or don’t, I don’t really care other than to point out a lot of people love to throw out the term “hypocrite” without an evidence they even know what it means, let alone that it applies.

    Let me get this straight – a mother is concerned about the nutritional value of the ice cream sandwich? It is all sugar. It doesn’t have any. Next question, please.

    I am not aware of any influential Christian movement calling for homosexuals to lose their jobs or otherwise deny them employment. I am aware of several influential LGBT organizations saying Christians should lose theirs, but I have not seen it from the other way, yet. Can you show me and defend your hypocrisy claim?

    Well, I think employers have rights as well. If your speech has a negative impact on their business, it is natural for them to want to part ways with you. They should retain that right.

    However, religion, rightly or wrongly, is defended by law. It is illegal in most, if not all, places in the US to fire someone for their religious beliefs in most circumstances. Pretty much, only religious organizations can discriminate based on religion.

    The question at hand is if this person was punished for being a Christian or punished for exercising speech that reflected poorly on his employer. If the former, he wins his suit, if the latter, he loses.

    Either way, as a private citizen who cherishes free speech and religion, I would stop doing business with Shaw Media because they clearly do not cherish them. I would not request the government force them to.

    What comment sections have you been reading? I doubt any as someone probably just told you to come here and post that as if it were relevant and as if you’d know any better, yourself.

    Hypocrites are the worst at pointing out hypocrisy. They simply tend to believe everyone else is one, too, and act accordingly.

    I don’t get your meaning, Nilssy. The Palestinians are already in the political minority in Israel. They’d have to defeat Israel and install their apartheid government before it could be dismantled as one was in South Africa.

    Nilsson, what’s it like when your world view forces you to either tell ridiculously blatant lies or abandon it? I’ve always wondered if such people go through life laughing at themselves or are just angry all the time.

  • [4] July 24, 2014 at 1:01pm

    I can’t be fired for a religious opinion in this country. I don’t really agree with that law, but a law it is. If it’s going to be used for false-rights issues, it most certainly should be used for issues when real rights are violated.

  • [2] July 24, 2014 at 12:59pm

    Irony? Did he fire someone for expressing personal opinions on social media outside of work? Has he advocate for homosexuals to lose employment because they are homosexuals? That’s not in the story, so you must have some extra knowledge of the situation. Or you don’t know what irony is.
