    “Sticking religion where it doesn’t belong would only serve to alienate a segment of the population.” Mehta.

    And where, pray tell, does religion belong? Life is religion and religion is life.

    And if not “alienating a segment of the population” is the measure of what should go into a movie, then there would be no movies made. As a believer, I can’t number the movies made that in my eyes were vile, putrid, offensive, vulgar, antisocial, glorifying corruption and violence and lacking in any redeeming social value, assaulting my beliefs and values, and that I found to be quite “alienating.” The producers of those movies didn’t seem to care about alienating a segment of the population.

    The fact that she took delight in his accident shows her ill will.

    This administration lies even when it doesn’t need to lie.

    Obama probably didn’t know about it because he hadn’t yet seen it on the news. But when he does find out what he’s been doing I’m sure he will be very upset about it as he was about all his other high crimes and misdemeanors when he learned about them for the first time on the TV news and he will order a thorough investigation of himself by himself.

    This is what happens when officials operate out fear; fear that something bad might happen and that they will be blamed for not doing enough to prevent it. They go to extremes to “protect us” and we lose out liberties. The preventative medicine is worse than the disease. I would much rather take the remote chance of being the victim of a mass shooting than be forced to live in what amounts to a prison camp “for my own safety.”

    The letter read, “Theses posts, quotes, and comments on social media have created a hostile environment and have lead to a decrease in unit cohesion and morale and are unprofessional in the military environment.”

    Words don’t create hostility anymore than someone “makes” you angry. Anger and hostility come from within us. We can choose to be angry and feel hostile or not. Words may express someone’s hostility or anger but we don’t need to adopt it as our own or let angry words make us angry. It seems that these cadets need to learn how to control their own feelings and not let other people’s words dictate their emotions. That would make you a real professional.

    It took 6 years for the mortgage holder to bring foreclosure proceedings? I assume she was in default the month after she died. I need to get a loan from that lender. And wasn’t her employer concerned when she didn’t show up for work for 6 years? The only thing that could make sense of this is that she got fired from work and committed suicide by sitting in her running car in her closed garage.

    The problem was that the original law was poorly drafted. Because it is a criminal law it must be written clearly enough to give the public adequate notice of what specific conduct will be treated as a crime and punished by possible loss of one’s liberty. That’s what the constitution requires. It’s part of due process. The law in question specifically referred to pictures of nude or partially nude bodies only. It’s not the court’s fault that the legislature did a lousy job drafting the law. Nor is it the job of the public to be mind readers to guess what the legislature intends when they draft a law. The legislature needs to spell it out.

    Obama doesn’t want a peace deal anymore than the Palestinians do. He sympathizes with Iran’s and Hamas’ stated objective to wipe Israel off the map.

    In all fairness to the principal, she thought it was loaded.

    The poor translation typifies the ineptitude and buffoonery of this administration.

    I find it ironic that some people who criticize the Mormon Church for its “strange” belief in the deification of man come from churches that believe the same thing (as evidenced by the above quotes). The problem is so many people are ignorant about the doctrines and teachings of their own religions. If we are to accept the Catholic Church’s position on the subject (which btw is also the belief of the Eastern Orthodox Church), then the deification of man is at the very heart of Christianity. It is why Christ came to earth.

    The Mormons aren’t the only ones who believe that God goal for men is to make them gods. The following is from the Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 460::
    “The Word became flesh to make us “partakers of the divine nature”:78 “For this is why the Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son of man: so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God.”79 “For the Son of God became man so that we might become God.”80 “The only–begotten Son of God, wanting to make us sharers in his divinity, assumed our nature, so that he, made man, might make men gods.”81 (1265, 1391, 1988)”

    Mormons aren’t the only ones who believe in the deification of man.
    Franz Posset quotes Luther that “‘to be born of God is to acquire the nature of God;’ ‘God’s grace makes man deiform and deifies him;’ ‘/Christ/ becomes totally man and we become totally deified;’ ‘The person who is in the Father becomes deified. We are made ‘gods.’” He concludes: “Deification was for Luther the synonym for justification and sanctification.”
    Franz Posset, “‘Deification’ in the German Spirituality of the Late Middle Ages and in Luther: An Ecumenical Historical Perspective,” Archiv fur Reformationsgeschichte 84 (1993): 103-25, at page 125; abridged in Luther Digest 3 (1995): 135-141.

    “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2

    “For devout members of other Christian denominations, especially those of the Evangelical variety, this statement will confirm their existing claims of outrageous Mormon heresies where doctrines of deity are concerned,” Mauss said.

    The other denominations do have the advantage; their heresies are older than the Mormon “heresies.”

    Which ones will then secede and join Mexico?

    He’s tired of seeing his inheritance spent to buy elections for the progressives.

    Snowden hasn’t killed anyone yet (that we know of). How could he possibly qualify?

    Andrea misses the good old days of Jimmy Carter when our “friends” in Iran held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. Apparently those are the kind of allies she likes.
