I am not nor have been a church minded or church oriented person. I often feel in odd company here, but have always let common sense be my guide. Since becoming a fan of Glenn’s, I have never found myself closer to God as a sense of meaning in my life. Many things said on his show and many of his guest’s contributions have changed my view on a lot of things, not least of which faith. Through recommended reads and other ideas placed before me I have gained a sense of the meanings behind Judaism and Christianity, more so than anything or anyone else has done in my life. So I guess my point is if this was possible when you were not trying deliberately, then there should be no limitation when you do. I have a scientific mind and do not jump to faith easily, but I have with his show, wisdom, and contributors, and I would support a project as has been proposed.
May I suggest, however, as history is more my thing, a connection between the two? I would really appreciate a hybrid discussion of David Barton and Rabbi Lappin, say on the Founder’s writings and beliefs. I would agree with a “modern application” as was noted by someone else, too. I would rather GB show remains, but use this idea like The Root specials, or a weekly (weekend?) show, for family time. As one who has participated in this network’s building (from the beginning), I am happy to comment on this, and grateful for all I have gotten from it. Oh, and thanks for asking.

As always, Mr. Walsh, well written. May I point out that THIS is about that well funded citizen army that our Dear Leader spoke of many years back? May I point out to those who have read and even responded that it is fear that keeps people in line, and fear of losing their children is the worst type of fear? May I remind you and readers alike of the Justina Pelletier case in Boston/CT which is similar, yet in some means worse than this scenario? MAY I POINT OUT THAT AGENCIES LIKE CPS (or whatever they go by in your state) HAVE BECOME THE ENFORCEMENT ARM OF YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITIES? WHY? It is because THEY have the authority to intimidate, remand, and act on behalf of others in power. They are not responsible and do not have to answer for it as a result. Give a bully free reign and see what happens. It is a sad state of affairs this Nation has allowed itself to become, and we can only blame ourselves. Again, well written and well reasoned – left me longing for my own worry-free youth!

In other words, “your life, micro managed by your Government”. You have issues MD, and if you can’t agree on the “laws” or their design, you will never undo what’s been done to you.

When the State says that you are violating “discrimination laws” without considering your personal rights, your freedom of religion, thought and conscience, then the State has already turned a blind eye to real justice and is only open to it’s biased perceptions of right and wrong. That is not to call open season on discrimination, but get serious in this case. Forcing acceptance by stomping someone else’s rights is an equal discrimination, one that threatens everybody. All of our individual rights, collectively, should not be run over to make way for the squeaky wheel, as there is only political hay to be made from greasing it. It is the duty of every American to stand up and fight a tyrant, even if it is the State itself. Mrs. Stutzman will have the respect and admiration of us all for her fight and beliefs, and no one will take that form her!

Yeah, same problem in NH!

Was this a multiple choice? C’mon New Hampshire! “On Golden Pond” ? “Iconic”! I didn’t care for it, but it is a huge picture.

Thank you Matt Walsh! Best article and satire I have read in a while. Made a bad day bright for this skeptic, who just finished shoveling out of 30″ of snow. BTW, it is “Climate Chaos” now, and consistent with your thoughts, I believe this name was chosen so that in 241 days when it “arrives(?)” the wizards of smart can say “No one saw that coming, nothing happening and all. Now that IS chaotic.”
Again, you deniers continue to demonstrate you have a hard time understanding the difference between weather and climate. Even with global warming, we still get cold weather. For example a temperature may have been 20 degrees without global warming, but 21 degrees with global warming. 21 degrees is still cold, but not as cold as it could have been.

Go with those Panthers, kid! Any owner, who is on he cusp of making playoffs, advancing in said playoffs, and traveling for said playoffs and STILL makes time for you – that guy is a winner no matter what and deserves your loyalty. Anyone responding now is trying to catch his honesty and integrity. Look up what he did for his TE Greg Olsen and his family if you want more proof. And I must say, wise of you to put some thought in here as I have been a lifelong Chargers fan since about 1980, and I have no idea what possessed me when I was your age, but I have been that fan ever since!
 January 14, 2015 at 12:22pm
I must say, great comment here. LMAO!
 January 14, 2015 at 12:20pm
What! So not fair. This story should have waited until AFTER the super Bowl, as these comments will reflect people’s hearts right now.
 December 16, 2014 at 12:42pm
THAT has to be the best comment so far, and probably most accurate. Under current “leadership”, the only “defensive” weaponry would be designed for use against US, not a foreign threat. Military? Probably. Friendly?, I doubt it.
Seriously, eutope? Bringing in peer-review, though not unreasonable, suggests that global warming is real. I don’t believe that it is, and do not care how ANYONE feels about my opinion. You are entitled to yours. Doctors such as you have pointed out (ever so nicely) were called “witches” in another time, and I am sure worse as they were misunderstood, but the results for some were there and believable. Yes there is something to faith, in all forms of medicine and science, not just in any god, or God either. Your denial of that, in my opinion, makes you specifically unqualified to belittle someone for having some, be it a celebrity or not.
If you don’t like the guy, don’t watch. What you do in a post like this isn’t to bash a celebrity necessarily, it is designed to bash his/her fans who you regard as idiots for being so, on the hopes of converting a few away. There are faiths stronger than science, and mine will continue with the guy who never asks me to just trust him, as your comments seemed to do.

There are way too many people on both sides who are caught in the middle of this mess, many who just go to work and do what they are told, albeit foolishly here. No way anyone should show up with ANY kind of weapon or any kind of aggressive action that would totally steal the headline here. Nice thoughts all, but reality is if anyone gets hurt or killed, Justina’s story disappears for someone else’s – we all know how the media works. Best bet is making calls, sharing this story, and maybe even a peaceful march and demonstration at the hospital. Help needs to come in the form that the media understands because they helped further the design – optics. Use the optics here, and that does not mean a scope!

Being a stay at home mom is not hard, but being a blogger is? Seriously, Ms. Glass is soooo out in left field, I do believe she appropriately fits the model of a “FemiNazi”. The stay at home mom is the cornerstone of a society, as she is charged with the day-to-day raising of our next generation of people, YES, PEOPLE – Grown Ups, unlike Ms. Glass, who go into the world and accept responsibilities for the next one after that. With a little luck, this idea of Ms. Glass will spread and irritate enough women to realize that the next generation needs to be raised not to think like she does! Thanks also for ******* on all us working men who contribute to housework, not because it is easy, but because it sucks and needs to be done despite that it does. And thanks for making sure that as you bashed women’s choices, adding another volley of incendiaries in the war on women, that you also bashed men as the insignificant others of the world. Well done! Not only have you made your stupid point at the expense of all the noble women of this entire planet, you have also put a nice jab in on men as well, just for being men and “untrained” or as you mused, “not conditioned”. Maybe your center-of-world, selfish, and simplistic lifestyle suits you, but it probably only suits you and not likely any other human on this planet. Thank you for showing us again that everyone has a choice, but that not all choices are good ones. Narrow mindedness begets a deserved loneliness, Ms. Gla

Proven during the 2012 campaign, donations made to Obama campaign site were deliberately transacted through a Pakistani IP address, making no mistake as to where these funds came from. Didn’t seem to be a problem. Anyone ever track down the missing Mr. Kony? Bet his campaign was a shadow fundraiser. They check that one out? Seems that some folks are more equal than others, both in breaking laws, and exposing law breakers
Is it not clear that most people of faith can accept many aspects of science, yet this argument remains a one way street? Most people, religious or not, accept many things science presents to them because they use reason, but what is the excuse for those atheists who actually “Fear” any talk of religion or God and cannot accept what faith brings to other people? My belief? Atheists are militant agnostics, radicals if you would, not just non believers or doubters, but those who would destroy that which others have faith in, are vehemently against God, and ultimately, in it for their own form of control – of what they would have everyone else believe.

There used to be jobs in teaching, until the unions took over. Now one must go to Thuggery College or Activist U. Perhaps an application to Hogwarts? I would have to agree with you, what on earth do you do with that? I guess if you are looking for personal faith or understanding of the universe, there are many places one could turn FOR FREE to study. I have no problem with Wiccans, but really? A paid study program? Only in New York…

The world has weakened itself towards the muslims. On a grand scale many have cowed in fear of their retributions and so things have gone for the last 2 decades. Now we see a world full of too much tolerance and open arms for those who would kill or destroy. I believe the muslim world is rising up NOW for a reason. I believe this is intended and I believe this is planned, not by all, but the few who set fire to the wick of radical ideas. Muslims make up 4 percent of Myanmar? Really, what were they thinking? I believe they really thought they would get away with another round of intimidation. This will continue to escalate as time goes by, as The United States has shown the world we will not be the hero this time, but instead lead the weak, justify and stand with them, and let the muslim world know we just don’t want any trouble. Shame on us all for letting it all happen right before our own eyes.
This was not a call out against any religious group, as it is far to late for that.
May 10, 2013 at 3:53pm
LOL! I’ll send from here in NH! That could be the best way to donate politically!
I would encourage everyone in the area to show up, quietly put a dollar on the table with a note reading “Happy to help, best of luck, and thanks”, and walk away without a word spoken. Purchase optional. Let the smarta** know people care, but won’t miss him.

I find the WWE’s pursuit of advancing and holding up negative stereotypes as extremely poor conduct, as bad as portraying guns, murder or rape. Anyone on the right does that and there is INSTANT vilification, but I guess it is “aw-raht fo you good ‘ol boys”. See, not nice when I do it either, spell check is offended. And “Colter”? Really? Like Ann Coulter? Are they expecting or insinuating their audience too stupid to know the difference? They are spreading hate in a beyond “PG” manner.
Also, Is anyone else seeing that our federal Government is beginning to look a lot like the WWE? The fiscal cliff (hanger) and the sequester all have good potential for a Congressional “Monday Night Raw” weekly showdown. Laughable, really, but are we that far removed form Rome? Hmmmm?
