    If all those people attended every single School Board meeting — and as many as were allowed to actually signed up to speak (three-minute limits for each person), believe me, after a while, the Board might be forced to acknowledge them.

    Make your school board members ACCOUNTABLE to taxpayers by attending the public meetings. Participate. And make sure that the local paper is notified that there will be many speakers at the meeting.

    Rabid,

    This is not feminism, but yes — this article is a bit silly.

    Showcasing photos of girls with Barbie Doll bodies in an annual SI article is not a problem — not for any woman who is living out her own vocation with purpose. Whether that vocation is motherhood or modeling, there is room for us all.

    What the author seems to talking about is virtue. Virtue is beautiful, but that doesn’t mean we have to denigrate those who have extraordinary physical beauty. After all, that is a gift from God too.

    I know plenty of physically lovely women who would welcome the hefty pay that comes from an occasional big time modeling job — rather than spend all day away from their kids at a 9 to 5. they are making living.

    hadanuf,

    Plus sizes are usually called “women’s” sizes and — yes — you are correct — they start above size 14.

    Average women are size 10-12.

    Jinxe,

    I get it.

    You thumbed through the Cliffs Notes of two chapters on Christian theology for five minutes.

    You should know that your comments create the impression that you have no idea what you are talking about.

    There are literally hundreds of thousands of sites where you can learn about Christianity…either through videos or reading.

    I suggest you would be better off doing that before you comment further

    Withmy89vision,

    The study and practice of TYPOLOGY in scripture is something you might want to spend 15 minutes reading about.

    Typology shows clearly that God did not “change His mind.” He brought about change in human beings. We were very slow to trust and learn.

    In the Old Testament (and in Jewish tradition), there are many “Types” that match “Types” in the New Testament. Seminarians can spend years studying Typology because there is so much of it!

    For Example:

    The blood of the lamb saving people is just one major one that comes to mind!

    Abraham and his son willingly offered as a sacrifice is another.

    I could go on — but you can read about it for yourself.

    If you knew scripture, you would know that God is not the capricious one. If you knew scripture well, you would see that He always ASKS us to do what is best for us. We are the capricious ones! Because He gave us free will to say NO.

    Oh, and God did not decide to “kill” one of His children: Jesus IS God and willingly chose to GIVE his life for you.

    Your comments betray your lack of understating about Christianity and about scripture. It is not too late to educate yourself.

    Surely, scheduled on his packed agenda was visiting sick kids in the hospital!
    However, his secretary probably did not figure in the time for one of the cancer patients to sing for him. The whole thing was too awkward to be planned — and she was sitting in an odd spot for a photo op.

    In biographies of Pope John Paul II, it was said that he was aggravating to his secretary for always throwing off the tight travel schedule by taking the time to visit with people – or stopping the car to go into churches and chapels to pray. He never failed to visit with people in wheelchairs at papal masses. So much so that his secretaries made sure there were no more than 30 at any one. Because they knew he would kiss, hug and meet each person.

    What you think of as a “photo op” may be just a desire to reach out. It is all in your perspective.

    Those people who are used to a more independent lifestyle will always be able to help themselves . . . and others . . when crises arise.

    Many people choose daily to be prepared. They don’t just store extra water and food. They install alternate forms of heat and a way to cook — like wood stoves. They store cords of wood. They keep battery operated lanterns, with extra batteries . . and matches and candles.

    They are supplied and self-taught to treat several different kinds of wounds or injuries.
    Maybe they have a hand pump installed on their well, which can be used if the electricity is off.

    They have a firearm with which to hunt — or to protect their families.

    Lots of people choose to live in semi-rural areas in very modest housing — so that some of their income can be put into raising a few animals, or growing some food.

    Of course,they still have TV’s, cell phones and shop on Amazon like we do.

    That is not being a crazy “prepper.” It is simply being prepared, so that you can help yourself, and your neighbors — when the SHTF.

    Terry Daktyl,

    Don’t let that stupid woman change your lovely manners. There are a lot more women out there who would be gracious when you offer your assistance.

    Women of a certain age have been brainwashed to believe that in order to be equal they have to be “the same.”

    Don’t stop being a man because some brainwashed b**tch forgot how to be a woman.

    Wilantonio,

    Good for you.

    I am teaching my boys too. Little things. They rarely forget to reach for my grocery bags at the store, even if there is only one to carry. They hold open doors at the store for their elders, men and women alike. They walk their gramma to the car over the icy parking lot. They give their seat to an elder or a woman in a room where none are available.

    And they are learning how to clean, cook, and do laundry as well as how to shovel the driveway, mow the lawn, and take the garbage out.

    My 14 year old is carrying cash he earned himself — and is ready to pay for his girlfriend at the movies. She doesn’t yet have a job.

    These things are important habits that make a man ready to think of others first –and to be prepared to care for them.

    Thanks for your testimony.

    The Divine Mercy. If you get a chance to read about it. . . . Jesus describes His Mercy as an ocean that he wants to pour down upon those that seek it.

    I pray for your continued conversion filled with grace and many consolations.

    I am becoming more and more confirmed in my belief that Twitter and Facebook are the signs and symptoms of a society in freefall.

    I love the freedom of speech. And the instant sharing of ideas that this medium brings us. But for God’s sake, not everyone deserves to have every single, petty, nasty thought publicized for thousands to see!

    God Bless those sisters. They devote their whole lives to the merciful care of others less fortunate.
    Thank God there was help for the to continue their work in that sin filled city.

    JROOK,

    An employer CAN limit what is printed in a corporate publication, but that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the amendment they are attempting to invoke!

    The amendment in question protects us from government control regulating public discourse on, and practice of, religion and free speech.

    Got that? If not, let’s try again . . vewy, vewy sloooowwwwly.

    The First Amendment is there precisely to protect “the people” in their free discourse.

  • [32] February 11, 2016 at 4:47pm

    Oh for goodness sake, JRook! . . .People change and grow all the time.

    You are judging them because . . . why?

    Because they are trying to get it right this time? Because they are more mature and realize what may be at stake?

    By all means, lets withhold our “accolades” until they behave like Jada Pinkett Smith and her hubby — who have an “open” marriage.

    Cuz THAT celebrity coupling is so much more healthy!

    Hi Frost,

    Absolutely. the women of conquered territory have always been spoils of war. That is why it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to think about why women in combat against all male armies . . .might require a little critical thinking.

    The thing is . . .if you actually read Malcolm X’s biography, he is, at the end of his life, a peaceful man who has given up his hate, his desire to separate by race, his anger.

    I am really offended if she is using Malcolm X as a propaganda tool to further hate against policemen . . or anybody else. It is obvious she has never read the mature Malcolm’s own words, or she is an out and out liar.

    It is just like the moron’s who try to use Martin Luther King as a propaganda tool for racist hate.

    They do not understand these men at all, even though these two men left copious autobiographical evidence of where there heads were during the end of their lives, when they were most effective.

    Blink,

    Tell you what . . when you actually have some substance to your answers, then get back to us.

    Did you google ANYTHING? Did you do one minute of reading before you decided to reply?

    No.

    Did you bother to read up on what they have been doing for decades? Do you even understand what VIRTUS is?

    No.

    Do you have a master list somewhere of cases that were completed and those that aren’t?

    No.

    And did you ever bother to listen to ANYONE else on this site who has posted to you regarding common sexual abuse in public schools, protestant denoms, and other organizations – that is NEVER publicized? Which would put the Church’s massive response in perspective.

    No.

    I’ve tried to be patient and kind with you over time — hoping you would grow up, learn to read, and get some critical thinking skills.

    I am losing hope for you.

  • [1] February 6, 2016 at 2:53pm

    Then I guess we would have to ask every single person in any kind of position of authority to answer that question. That is not how the world works.

    I will say this: One of my kids attends Catholic school. I am required to have two different background checks AND go through a course called VIRTUS — just to accompany my children on a field trip!

    Don’t tell me the Catholic Church hasn’t taken massive action to safeguard kids.

  • February 6, 2016 at 2:37pm

    blink,

    As usual, your comments come to us without the benefit of you actually doing any real research on it.
    How would you even know what the strategy has been — since you don’t bother to really educate yourself.

    It doesn’t matter what the story or topic is, you comment to be controversial — but never have any citations to back up your commentary.

    First of all, the doctrine of infallibility is not what you imply.

    and secondly, there has been universal and massive work done on the abuse scandal issue.

    It has not been ineffective — nor truly “slow.”

    To suggest that any real justice can be accomplished without due process is a dangerous idea.
