    Sort of like the christian group that got a court to permit a school district to allow distribution of religious pamphlets, that was fine until they realized when you let one in, all are allowed and the Satanists showed up with coloring books. The Law of Unintended Consequences prevails. I find a delicious irony in the RFRA being used to protect Atheists, sweet isn’t it.

    Christianity has never held any substantial numbers in Japan. Right now maybe 1%. Shinto and Buddhist rituals are not the same as religion and are more about culture and tradition than a belief system.

    Half a Billion a year in new Christians is ridiculous. The inflated numbers of Christians in China is no where even near a tenth of a billion TOTAL. And that number is grossly exaggerated by Christian groups trying to project some successes on a planet where they are falling in numbers. Most of the inflated numbers come from one research group who has to use estimates of “underground home churches’ that no one can document. The Financial Times says 100 million total at the high end and Chinese government say 23 million total. It is likely the truth is somewhere in between.

    I worry about where to make reservations for dinner. Does that count?

    Yesterday on NPR’s the Diane Rehm’s Show this study was the topic of discussion. As part of the show they had an online poll; 36% of the respondents identified as Atheist, 19% as Agnostic and 30% as Christian and 15% Nones. Among households earning over $100,000 agnostic and Nones are the majority. Among educated liberals Nones is the majority force.
    Most people who say in a study they are “Christian” are talking about cultural identity not really religion. They don’t go to church, they don’t read the bible, they don’t follow any of the rules and edicts, it’s just a name to use to avoid conflict. What beliefs they have are more classic Deism than Evangelical Christianity. [and as such closer to the beliefs of the Founding Fathers] Now as they see that dropping the nominal connection to the old superstitions has no negative repercussions in modern society, more will become Nones and from the Nones we will build a Secular culture and see the Agnostic and Atheists rise to be larger than Evangelicals in the next 50 years. Look at Japan and Scandinavia where the Nones already dominate.
    What we need to do is promote Nones among the immigrate communities from Muslim countries where now the kill atheist bloggers. This Nation should lead in blasphemy and ridicule all the silly goat herder superstitions about supernatural beings, myths and legends of the ancient people. That is REAL FREEDOM.

    $12 by 2020 is too little, too late. Minimum wage would be $12 now if it had kept pace with inflation. My business [30 FT, 5 PT] starts everyone at $12.50 now and I only have one part time high school boy at that rate. My retail floor staff earns $18 hour when other shops in my industry average $10, my retention rate is far above theirs. I have managers from competitors applying to work for me as sales people because my scale is so much higher and I only open 5 days a week when others are forced into longer work weeks.

    I just quickly scanned through about 100 or so comments and I am appalled by the number of posters who support this superstitious bigot’s violent proposition. Society has advanced in the past 2000 years and these condemnations are horrible examples of the reaction of primitive people to behaviors they didn’t understand. There are dozens of other prohibitions in the anthology of myths and legends we refer to as the “Bible” and society has disregarded most of them for hundreds of years.
    Most Blaze readers would say they were at least partially libertarian I suspect, they would be likely supporters of less intrusive, smaller government yet here they all rally to impose an ancient superstition on the sexuality of whole category of citizens and support the State restricting their rights, even punishing them simply for the manner in which they prefer to fornicate? How is that liberty? But more importantly how does imposing a subjective value judgement better your life? How does Bruce shagging Keith harm you? How does it even effect you? Statements like Pastor Lee’s are just the same as ISIL’s? Do you really want a theocracy? Why is Christian Sharia better than Muslim Sharia?
    All of you that attempt to justify this disgusting sign should be ashamed of yourselves. You are the reason that rational conservatives can not get elected in this country, your prejudices scare most people and make the bad choices like Hillary look good!
    FYI – many Christian sects support same sex marriage

    BFD, complete non-event. I never play along with this stuff

    People are a bit more complex than wooden pegs. Some pegs are half round & half square

    Oh I absolutely hate “for the children” as an excuse for anything but I find Conservatives seem to own that one; abortion, same-sex marriage, drug laws…… all for the children

    Live in the real world rather than some fantasy planet where you’re all armed with your concealed carry bazookas out at the Wal-Mart righting the wrongs inflicted on the innocents by gay liberal atheists

    Seems like we have only one side of the story. The man’s former job is without relevance to the occurance other than to solicit unwarranted sympathy. He apparently has not learned an important life lesson about when to mind one’s own business.

    Actually the evidence points to just the opposite, there are very few if any atheists convicted of violent crimes and atheists are rarely found in prisons. A a population subset they represent our least violent citizens, least likely to own a gun, least likely to be involved in domestic violence.

    1. A minimum wage increase will raise all wages
    2. It would be a gigantic boost to the economy
    3. The minimum wage in Australia is just about $15 for adult workers and the Big Mac costs just about the same as in the US, this will have little or no effect on prices
    4. Single Payer National Healthcare would do more to control employer’s cost than any other action we could take.
    5. This is a great issue for the Democrats to use to win in 2016. Wages, Healthcare. Women’s Rights and Marriage Equality are about to bury the conservatives [that and old age]

    The clinic was absolutely right to fire this woman and the state should revoke her license as well. She is not fit to be a vet.

    Trap ‘em, neuter ‘em and release them back in the wild – that’s the humane way

    Her career is finished and while I wouldn’t condone killing her, a prison sentence and revocation of her license would be fitting. Any thoughts about covering her in fish oil and catnip and staking her out in a house full of ravenous cats is just a humorous fantasy.

    Do the adulterous get two nuts for every screw?

    I’m an atheist, a liberal and a gay rights supporter. I own a marketing and event production agency. I work with Christians all the time. I may consider them superstitious buffoons but their money is green and I have found it spends just as well as everyone else cash does. A few years ago a local evangelical group wanted some biker events managed and media purchased, no problem. You pay my fees, you get my services. You are being ridiculous in denying good paying customers for some superstitious aversion to the manner in which they have sex.
