    I’m shocked. No really.

    It’s all garbage anyways. We, taxpayers, pay for elective abortions whether any law permits it or not.

    If I give Planned Parenthood $10, but say don’t use it for abortions, then PP takes the $10, earmarks it for some other service and moves $10 that wasn’t earmarked from that service to abortions. How is it my $10 did not help fund abortion?

    Does everything need a cynical, jaded response? Want to know where our Liberty-loving culture went? Look no further than our love of all things bad. We only laugh at misery, sing about sorrow, and we can only find the good in ourselves when we compare ourselves to people we consider worse than us.

    It really depends on how the question is asked. Based on the wording of the question, I can answer either way. The sticking point is those who have not heard the Gospel. Paul speaks that there are those who do not know the Gospel, but follow God’s law anyways because they are inclined to do so without knowing the reason why.

    The key is that you cannot reject Jesus Christ as God’s only begotten son. God will judge all who do not know Him, and He will judge perfectly based on what is written on their hearts.

    Right. The Jews picked up rocks to stone Him as told in the 8th chapter of John because He was being ambiguous about His own divinity.

    I think the flippant nature of the many comments are more about the contents of the story than seriousness of the disappearance. This story basically says nothing. It’s kind of nice to know that it’s not completely forgotten, because I, for one, do really want to know what happened to all those people, but it gives no information at all.

    It reads like this:
    “Hey! I know what happened to that plane,” says a police chief.
    “Oh no you don’t,” replies the government.

    Not a shred of a hint of news there.

    The maker of the greatest number of crappy beer buys the one making the second highest number of crappy beers. The third biggest producer of beers that no one who wants something worth drinking as opposed to something just containing a moderate amount of alcohol, decided not to join in the fun.

    Hey, I’m all for putting the beer I won’t drink all under one label. What’s the difference? The only purpose for any of them if for children and rednecks to get drunk on a Friday night without having to taste real alcohol. It certainly isn’t about producing a beverage one might enjoy drinking.

    At least they seem to be handling the split as Christians and adults. That’s nice to see.

    This is the only time I’ve ever wished to be at one of his concerts. I would have offered to stand if he admitted on stage that Taylor Swift deserved her MTV award.

    “You want to treat them like royalty.”

    I am very sorry about the Wasp spray, your highness. Please help yourself to the safe and my daughter.

    I can’t speak to his state of mind or his intent, but I have a hard time believing a “reasonable person” would have found cause to fire through the bathroom door at night with invited guests / other residents in the house. It is not reasonable to assume a burglar on the other side of any door at any time.

    If he gets somewhere near the maximum of 15 years, seems right to me.

    Or better yet, stop stealing the money from us so we are each better able to reach out to those we find in need.

    It seems that these days if you are not offended, you aren’t really living.

    There was nothing wrong with the tweet.

    His economic policies were a disaster. Obama could have done little more than Bush did to ruin it. But, Bush was a leader and he cared about his country. He made mistakes, followed bad advise. It was not intentional.

    Even with the way everything turned out – bailouts and all – I am so thankful he was President for those 8 years. I shudder to think what President Gore would have done.

    They were to the mainstream Jews of the time. That’s the thing – a “cult” is an off-shoot of another religion that is rejected by the “mainstream” of that religion. Number of adherents is irrelevant accept for determining which is the mainstream and which is the cult in a given society.

    So who falls into “cult” differs based on your point of view.

    Mormons can correctly be labeled a “cult” because they are not a “mainstream” Christian denomination. While “cult” usually has a negative connotation, it does not have to have one. That, again, depends on your point of view.

    I wonder how these works of fiction influenced their readers. When I think of books that influenced me, I don’t first go to works meant to provide little more than entertainment to their readers.

    I’m not saying there’s nothing to learn from novels or they can’t make their readers strive to be better people, but, I guess, if you don’t really believe in anything, then fictional realities become more influential then those that deal with the world as it really is.

    And Black Panthers standing outside of poling places with clubs taunting white people is nothing worthy of investigation or prosecution.

    He continues with his message of inclusion, but there’s a line. Our culture is based on negative emotions. Our comedy is mostly about how much this other person sucks more than you. Our politics are “at least I’m better than the other guy.”

    It’s not positive to celebrate negativity. It doesn’t show how mature you are to be able to revel in someone’s despair.

    Also easy to do if the maggot was planted by a student.

    Is anything going to happen? Does anyone in Washington actually want us serfs to have our Liberties? Or is this all just hot air and posturing for the meaningless elections later this year?

    They don’t have enough of their own parades? How about starting one?

    Why should any group be able to claim a “right” to participate in another group’s activities?
