Pray tell, how would you deal with your own child. Let me guess, throw them out of the house and put them on the sex offender registry at age 13. You're either a liar, or a gd monster.
Taldren: His parents lied about him entering a "Christian program." His parents lied about him receiving counseling. His parents covered up his sexual molestation because they didn't want it to become public.
That's wrong. He needed to get help, and they enabled him instead.
How the hell is a filed police report covering up anything? How are you going to say that the parents actions were wrong when they worked? You are on a witch hunt. I don’t know this person, but there is a huge difference between actions as a child and actions as an adult. I don’t believe in ruining a childs life forever for being an ignorant/naive human being.
Also, it is a huge jump to say they "enabled him" ... so what you are saying is that he is a child molester today. That he never grew out of being a pervert and is a straight up pedophile. Can I see the evidence of that or do you only work in the court of public opinion?
They. Lied. About. Josh. Entering. A. Christian. Program. For. Treatment.
They. Lied. About. Josh. Seeing. A. Counselor.
They. Did. Not. Alert. Authorities. When. They. Caught. Josh. Sexually. Molesting. His. Younger. Sisters. While. They. Were. Asleep.
Direct quote from the ACTUAL story (not Oliver Darcy's summary):
"In 2006, Jim Bob told police that in July, 2002 Josh admitted to fondling a minor’s breasts while she slept. “James said that they disciplined (redacted, Josh) after this incident.” The family did not alert authorities.Jim Bob told police that about nine months later in March, 2003 “there was another incident.” Josh was again accused by a female minor of touching her breasts and genitals. Josh was accused by several minors of touching their genitals, often when they slept, but at times when they were awake.
Jim Bob then “met with the elders of his church and told them what was going on.” No one alerted the police or any other law enforcement agency. Instead they decided to send Josh to a “program [that] consisted of hard physical work and counseling. James said that [redacted, Josh] was in the program from March 17, 2003 until July 17, 2003.”
He said the program was a “Christian program.” Michelle Duggar later admitted to police that Josh did not receive counseling and instead had been sent during that time to a family friend who was in the home remodeling business."
They lied. They tried to cover it up. They failed to get Josh help.

Since REAL justice (criminal) can’t be meted out at this point due to the cover-up and latency, might I suggest an alternative?
From now on, every time Molester Josh says anything about how the children of same-sex parents “aren’t safe”, someone should walk up and punch the beyotch in his effin throat.
How about little bitty girls who don't want to be circumcised? or married? or raped? or killed because they want to go to school?
Should they realize that it is more important to honor baal-allah than to be able to drive a car? or keep their noses? or not have the heels of their FEET chopped off if their SHOES click on the pavement when they walk?
Maybe you wouldn't want to be whipped to death for having a Western haircut or shirt on?
Or wait! Maybe you are a closet masochist and you DO want to be whipped for wearing a Western shirt, after all.... eh? Ride, Cowboy Ride, eh?

I had to chuckle listening to Preacher Mike.
In one breath, he went from warning against an EMP sending us back to the Stone Age to imploring us to invoking his favorite ancient mythology and moving us back to the Bronze Age.

A first year law student could summarize this in 10 seconds. It would be a full bore ****** move to defy decades of constitutional cases and leave it up thinking this could hold up to a legal challenge. Small towns/counties don’t have the money to throw away on nonsense like this.
Your expression of faith depends on how much money you have?

If a person with Swyer Syndrome (XY gonadal dysgenesis, occurs approx 1/80,000 live births) commits a crime, who will the police be looking for based on DNA? The suspect has a 46,XY karyotype, so they should be looking for a man, right?
Boys have a penis, girls have a va….. good God, didn’t your parents teach you anything?
...yea sure, something like that.
Boys have a penis girls have a vagina,
Good Lord man! Didn't you watch Kindergarten Cop?
Your chromosomes determine your gender (XX or XY … or if something went wrong = X, XXY, XXX, XYY). You cannot alter these. Your sex is determined by your genitals but typically follows XX as being female and XY as being male. There are common problems associated with a lack of a sex chromosome or too many chromosomes. We don’t understand how to prevent things from going wrong but I would suggest we mark the ladies room XX only and XO for the men for all others. It also looks like ‘hugs and kisses’ hehe. Normal men don’t ‘loiter’ in the bathroom and are not tolerant of buffoonery. Comments, concerns about this setup? Nothing full proof but it beats having 6 bathrooms. I don't think the men will mind too much.
Guess you never got the talk from your parents!

He has said he first realized he was ‘different’ at age 8 or 9 and actually had started hormone therapy to transition back in the 80′s, but stopped when he got together with Kris Jenner.
 April 25, 2015 at 9:19am
Sadly, it’s not just the libs with small minds. There will be fellow GOPers who will basically say Jenner’s not “welcome” in the Republican Party.
Here in Georgia we just went thru District Conventions in the GOP, and the new Chairmen in one of the districts ran on a platform that included unity as a key to winning going forward. This guy has been one of the hardest-working, highest-respected GOP activists in Georgia for YEARS. Yet, we have this old Phyllis Schlafly wannabee that goes apoplectic anytime someone reaches out to the “80% friends” and dares to welcome people to the GOP regardless of their “…age, race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.” Oh! The horror!
Then again, we’re still not talking about U.S. citizens being attacked…so i’m not sure why we should care/get involved based merely on the flavor of mythology those under attack ascribe to.

Looking back trying to find the article where Glenn rails against the U.S. for not doing anything when thousands of Muslims were being massacred by CHRISTIAN militia in C.A.R. Nearly every mosque in the CHRISTIAN-majority country has been destroyed, and most of the surviving Muslims have fled.

My question is this: Why is it assumed we are SUPPOSED to do something? We’re not talking about American citizens. Most of the those being killed by Islamic extremists overseas are other minority Muslims, not Christians. Is there some reason the U.S. is supposed to focus on violence in other countries when it’s directed at only certain religious sects?
Good point. In that case I recommend they change their religious affiliation because to be truly Christian is to be non-sectarian. You can be Muslim & still be Christian. You can live overseas & still be humane.
Moslims are in a civil war Sunni vs Shiite but both sides target Christians. http://weaselzippers.us/221299-shocking-video-of-attack-on-church-in-niger-after-charlie-hebdo-attack-69-churches-were-burnt-because-christian/ But don't worry are moslim in chief is doing his best to bring it here. http://weaselzippers.us/221296-obama-and-erdogan-to-help-open-new-mosque-in-maryland/

I would think the “information age” is having a big influence on the decline in religiosity across all 1st-world cultures. Most of the conversions may very well be “passive”, i.e., people are simply gravitating away from the “faith” of their parents/grandparents as they learn more about the history and foundations of supernaturalism/mythology/religion in our development as a species.

So why aren’t we calling SoCons hypocrites for their near-universal support for a country with the most liberal laws on same-sex marriage and abortion….Israel?

Study also shows continued rapid rise of “Nones” in North America/U.S…..so at least there’s some good news!
But the growth of the indigenous American population is negative meaning it's immigrants who account for the increase in our population not the population who is already here. So, if the immigrant is "religious", that section of demographic will increase. "Nones" may grow in numbers but it depends on how the former immigrants are faithful to their religious backgrounds. In order to increase, "nones" who have to convert religious people.

Which case are you referring to?
Craig and Mullins v. Masterpiece CakeShop: violation of Colorado § 24-34-601(2), C.R.S.
Elane Photography, LLC v. Vanessa Willock: violation of New Mexico 28-1-7 NMSA (2006)
State of Washington v Arlene’s Flowers: violation of Washington RCW 49.60.030
This is the problem and exactly what I was talking about taking these decision out of the hands of the voter and the republic by using one court case by a non elected activist judge to change states the constitutions that stood for 238 years for religious freedom and private property rights including businesses. and change the constitution for millions of people forever and states rights by using ONE court case involving only two gay people,our system was meant to go through branches of government the House,the Senate,The Executive and the judicial branch (the supreme courts) of government. it's called due process and it's being violated by non elected activist judges by in a case by case judicial tyranny involving only two people who are gay that is being forced onto 300 million people. do you see something wrong with this? only 3% of our population who are gay does not speak for millions in fact trillions if you count all of civilizations who for 2000 years marriage was a man and a woman...you still got it wrong,it's a republic the voter decides with the representative we send to DC to represents our views and the constitution.thats all the government was originally for to defend the constitution and the peoples right to amend it and to protect us from foreign invaders.they were meant to have regular jobs like us and return to them once their jobs in DC were completed for that session.
What the hell are you babbling about? Tom Rath just demonstrated that all of these decisions were based on laws enacted by the elected legislators of the states in which they were handed down, contrary to your claim that "there isn't any." Therefore, they involve no violation of due process or judicial activism.

Actually, businesses do NOT have the right to refuse service if that refusal is on the basis of the customer’s belonging to a class protected by federal, state, or local law or ordinance.

OK, so Pence refused MULTIPLE times to answer the Yes/No question, “Do you believe it should be legal to discriminate against gays?”
Admittedly, I can understand his refusal. If he answers simply “yes” OR “no”, he’s effed either way.

Just go ahead and make the move to The Onion, Matt. It’s your calling.
