    Blink,

    Before you comment again on the story of Adam and Eve . . spend ten minutes actually reading Genesis. Better yet, spend twenty minutes reading that story from a few different translations.

    And maybe read ABOUT what the apple and the tree actually represent! There are thousands of authors who write from a theological point of view who can enlighten you on this one.

    Maybe spend an hour actually researching how important the concept of FREE WILL is in Judeo Christian thought.

    Then come back to The Blaze and comment upon God’s intent.

    I am disappointed — but not surprised — by this kind of action by a Catholic school. Depending on the diocese, the schools can be fantastic or barely mediocre.

    Unfortunately, many Catholic schools are closing, and those that are left to teach and run what’s left are still there only because of seniority, or some kind of patronistic or political reason. They are NOT the best administrators or teachers.

    This story exemplifies what is wrong.

    Catholic schools are failing and closing is partly because of a struggling economy, but also because of lack of good management by dioceses who fail to get that they have the freedom to make their alternative education SO much better!

    I chose to homeschool rather than pay expensive private school tuition for my kids to receive in return very little academic rigor and worse ….very little traditional religious education.

    And my pet peeve: that these teachers think that a lot of homework is a sign of a rigorous academic program. That is lazy teaching. You have these kids six hours a day. Stop making the parents do your job.

    Not exactly a failure, sweetheart.
    Eduardo was the one of the stars of the Movie “Bella.”
    Bella was a critically acclaimed and very successful movie . . so successful that he could afford to produce his own films and spend years making this most recent film . . all without having to get a “day job.”

    Crazy,

    Clearly, he wanted more than stardom. Obviously, he desires to be role model for something much more interesting and fulfilling.

    Thompark,
    Read history. The abolitionists in our country who forced the public and political debate about slavery were devout Christians. More to the point: Slavery had nothing to do with Christianity per se. There were people of all backgrounds involved in the commerce of slavery, including quite a number of African tribal peoples who kidnapped and sold other African tribal people to those in the slave trade.

    It wasn’t Christ and those who follow his teachings closely that made slavery possible and profitable.

    Sloppy journalism and negligent editorial oversight is a daily thing at The Blaze. Readers have been posting about it since the first few months of online publication. No one listens and no one cares enough about standards to do anything about it.

    I think it is shameful that they either do not know better. Or worse, that they don’t have enough pride in their own work!

    Being familiar with the typos, grammar errors and editorial sloppiness at the Blaze, I am guessing your confusion probably stems from THAT, rather than the actual quote from Palmer.

    If he is truly repentant and sorrowful, it doesn’t matter how long it took for him to get there . . the Mercy of Christ is his. There is no sin so great, nor sin so scarlet that it cannot be forgiven. God is greater than our sin. His Mercy is an ocean.

    Blink,

    There is great change WITHIN species, but a lizard does not eventually change into a panther with forty-two steps between. There is absolutely no proof that random chemical changes in primordial soup at the dawn of our planet’s creation eventually led to the birth of the first **** sapiens after billions of years of change.

    Not even Darwin believed that.

    There is the story about how in the 90′s, he witnessed an elderly lady fall and cut her leg badly, which bled profusely. He called for an ambulance, went over to the lady and wrapped a linen jacket around her leg, flirting with her and calming her. He sat with her until the ambulance arrived. This was when he was going through some of his worst times with addiction. The story goes that years later when the granddaughter of the old lady saw him in a restaurant, she came up to thank him and tell him how much his kindness meant to her and her gram.

    He grabbed her hand and said, “You have absolutely no idea how much I needed to hear that today.”
    He is a humble guy.

    Here’s a real world example for you:

    A community about 50 minutes from where I live has the highest paid teachers in the state. Over the years, the teachers got what they wanted . . but now the district is in serious financial hurt.

    The school district is now trying to make each teaching position part-time. They want to cut hours and all benefits.

    There is a limit.

    Their greed has now come home to haunt them.

    I thought the same thing.

    There was a time in our society where the only place you’d where something like that was in your bedroom, for your man . . and it would be made of silk and lace.

    Buble has nothing to be sorry for.

  • April 18, 2015 at 7:02am

    Wow. So far, seven comments posted with no regret for lives lost to senseless violence.
    Some were certainly fathers, mothers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters.
    God rest their souls.

    I absolutely agree.
    I am offended by having to look at her crack and cheeks in a public venue.
    People on social media need to grow up. Buble was only commenting on what he saw, which was ridiculous.

  • [43] April 18, 2015 at 6:35am

    He didn’t apologize really . .
    But what about all of us who are offended by what she was wearing? Maybe we should demand she apologize for dressing inappropriately in a public place!

  • [8] April 15, 2015 at 6:26am

    Actually . . .

    The number of abortions since 1973 in the US alone has been over 55 million. That number does not include the horrifying total number worldwide. Is THAT number 500 million?

    What difference does it make after you hit one million???????

    Don’t we use the terms holocaust and genocide when a million innocent people are slaughtered? Don’t we “frown” upon THAT?

    One million human beings a year slaughtered by their own mothers . . legally sanctioned by their own country!.

    Blink,
    Christians who understand scripture know that the Old Testament refers to a different culture, time and place. The societies who lived at that time had a different understanding of personhood and property than we do. I don’t have time to educate you properly on this. But just one example: They didn’t have any social welfare programs for those without means. If your husband died, you might starve.

    So people were indentured to other people for their very survival. Right and wrong had nothing to do with it.

    Newsflash:
    Heterosexuals also do not have a right to force contractual agreements.

    It might be discrimination if the gay couple decided to come in and order lunch and were refused . . or walked in off the street to buy flowers and were refused.

    But a contract to rent a venue or provide a service or product on a certain date for a certain price must be agreed upon by both parties.

    No business MUST sign contracts with whomever demands it.
