I like John McCain. He is not part of the radical out-of-control GOP. But honestly, the guy who brought on Sarah “drunken family brawl” Palin to be his running mate, has no place calling someone an idiot.

Carlson is part of the Fox Entertainment channels line up and she’s the not-so-bright mom type, although her very short skirts would imply something else. It’s not in any way surprising she talks about allah and the christian god, while disparaging allah. It’s more of the idiot pandering Fox is known for. The Fox agenda is as follows and rarely, if ever, deviates. Jesus, god, military, Israel, Jews, christian persecution, Obama is an illegal muslim communist and finally conspiracy, conspiracy, conspiracy. That is not news, but low brow entertainment which feeds into the consistently paranoid GOP fanatical sect.

The great thing about America is, idiots like you can spend the little money you have battling out a lost cause in court and the Supreme Court would never hear your case. So it would all be in vain.
May 20, 2015 at 9:50am
Non-discrimination laws always trump religious rules of bigotry. It’s not a hard concept to grasp. Real laws overrule mythical beliefs, used by bigots to spew hate. This is not “christian persecution”, which seems to be the last bastion of quasi-rational thought radical christians use to justify their ridiculous opinions. Any attempts by the radicals to make local or state ordinances will be lost at the local level and in this country shot down by the Supreme Court if enacted. This is another social equality battle christians have lost.

Being gay is not a choice, but this guy has lived a lie all do to christian doctrine. He spouts hate and then participates in the thing he hates so much. More and more of these cases will be made public, because there is no anonymity on these apps. I feel bad for his wife, although she has probably known for some time. As for the preacher, he’s done. No sympathy.
We all suffer temptations. And we are all responsible for our actions. Homosexuality is an action that he chose. He claims to be a Christian so I assume he knows the consequences of his actions so that is between him and God.
It's is wrong to say that homosexuals have no choice. Every man has come to a point in his life where he had to choose right or wrong. Everyone has been so angry that they thought about murder. That doesn't give them the right to say, "I can't control my temper, God made me this way" and then kill someone. The same could be said for any sin. It is always a choice.
God would not have called homosexuality a SIN, if you were born with it. IT IS A CHOICE.
Sorry but this guy is on your team not ours.

No legitimate news outlet can beat Fox “news”. Simply because Fox is not news, it’s entertainment and entertainment is always more viewable than news. Fox repeatedly shows it’s bias, prejudice and bigotry, solely to garner the viewership of the ultra-right segment of the population. People like Hannity, as an example are always discussing different conspiracy theories never based in fact, but the “what if this happened!” concept. It allows him to prattle on about anything without repercussions. Oreilly (the wife beater) is the same way. Disguising news in his guided stories to rope in the simplest of our society. The examples are pretty much endless, but the point is made. If you believe Fox is actual news, then you have given in to the rightwing rhetoric, propaganda and baseless lies.
Because of course the alphabet stations are so reliable right. They would never edit information to smear someone or lean towards opined diatribe (Al Sharpton!). Nor would they exaggerate or conflate lies regarding foreign policy such as a video was the cause of benghazi or change the 911 tapes to maquillage George Zimmerman as racist or .... and the list goes on.
There hasn't been a real news station for years, please name one?

You’re right!! Every toddler should be armed with a belt fed machine gun! That will assure their safety at a FEMA run indoctrination camp…aka…public school!!
Let's do it your way - you know, Sandy Hook? Either we learn from history or we are doomed to repeat it.
 May 19, 2015 at 2:44pm
These shelter-in-place and Active Shooter drills are imperative today and the school should be congratulated for having this drill, but clearly should have provided a more thorough description of the event to parents. I wouldn’t have thought the typical blaze reader could make a conspiracy theory of this event, but sadly I am wrong. To the paranoid conspiracy theorists, having the children hide is not part of their indoctrination to be subservient government drones (or similar), as many opined. It is the way to keep them safe from harm until an emergency subsides.
Thank you. Finally a well-thought out and reasonable comment from someone.

The story had so much potential until the very end. Too bad the mom couldn’t explain why christians reject homeless people as lazy and don’t just use the ‘ol boot straps to make their lives better. Further, the mother should have explained why her god made that man homeless.
Actually, it was due to the high taxes the man had to pay..
* He lost his job
* He lost his family
* He couldn’t pay his property taxes
* He was told he was not eligible for welfare/unemployment
* He lost his house
* His kids kicked him in the knees.. (They work for the local county)
* What little money he had saved was taken by the IRS to feed a family of 40 illegal aliens
Exampe of the scum called progressivism.
How foolish you are. This story proves that you and your ilk are obviously wrong on all counts.

Declining numbers in all christian churches has been occurring for decades. The blaze should wrap it’s obvious homophobia in better stories.
You are missinformed, people are not leaving God they are simply leaving the hypocracy that they find in brick and mortar buildings... many are drawing closer to God as was fortold before the end comes.... these surveys are a telling sign that the letters to the 7 churches in Revelation are coming to fruition...
Our denomination is actually growing. Largely from PC(USA) members that were abandoned by their denomination. The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is growing just fine.

An instance where there is no parenting. The father probably paid for all of that stuff, so why destroy it. He could easily just take it away from his son for the duration until the grades improve. It’s just horribly bad parenting.

The young earth believers are nothing more than radical christians. They are poorly educated and lack sophistication. They knowingly deny undeniable facts of science for childhood fairytales about a 6000 year old planet. These people are biblical literalists. In genuine scientific circles, these people are the butt of jokes, for obvious reasons. They become a nuisance pushing new earth fiction in schools, in some hillbilly areas of the country and amongst homeschoolers, which is an endemic problem. Thankfully, the population of young earth buffoons is relatively small.
Your spewing of invective is indicative of an uneducated, unsophisticated mind, as it shows plainly and painfully how limited your thinking is. The broad strokes of your criticism is nothing more than argumentum ad hominem and does nothing to further your cause of proving that the earth is bezillions of years old.
I am a 'young earther' and would contrast my education against yours any day of the week, not that it would settle anything as it is a fruitless venture to engage in discussion (or lack thereof more is the case) with narrow minded 'liberals' (a contradiction of the term b.t.w.)
YE's also lack a sound understanding of Biblical scholarship. For instance: ages in the new testament could have to referred to one's wisdom. The number 7 has sacred significance (days of creation) and occures as a repeating theme. 3rd God transcends time. It says it right there in the OT: a day is 1000 years and 1000 years 1 day so....where did they get the notion that the Jews meant a litteral 24 hrs. They read the OT like some modern western autobiography with no regard for ancient Hebrew literary tradition.

Another one of the moral majority gang who are not so moral. He’s only sorry he got caught, not for trying to have sexual relations with an intern. No doubt he’s an avid church goer and christian. He’ll soon publically state god has forgiven him do to his prayers. That’ll fix it.

The point of demonstrating is to make a substantive change to a perceived wrong. This is accomplished by peaceful protests, which garner support from the public, politicians and raise money to publicize the cause. Rioting, especially by state employees and others alike does nothing to change a problem. Destroying one’s own neighborhood does nothing but inflict considerable harm to the residents who live there. Watching the CVS burn down in Baltimore made me think of the great distance someone with diabetes or heart disease must now travel travel to get life giving medication. It’s no longer just down the street. It puts the destruction in to a real life scenario and perspective. If history repeats itself from other riots, the state and federal governments will not be providing funds to rebuild. Similar to Washington, DC and New York after the riots in the 70’s, entire swaths of those cities remained burned out ghettos for decades. Who suffers from that? The people involved in the riots and the innocent people that must live there.
I agree for the most part, however demonstrating is not always to garner support, but to show an injustice. For instance, our own founding father's also resorted to rioting. Let me explain. The Boston Tea party was not only a demonstration but it turned out to be a riot as well with looting involved and loss of property. However, what made it right was that the cause was just. In the case of Baltimore, Freddy's grey's death, was not a just cause. It wasn't just to riot there because they did not give time for the justice department to run it's course. That plus the it didn't serve in the interest of the whole but rather a few. Most went to protest with the intent of looting for their own gain rather than gain for the whole culture. In m book, they ought to lock up these fools.

The decline of christianity will bring a decline in church lead bigotry and prejudice. It will lead to unrestricted thinking and more freedom. People will not be confined to archaic and useless stories of mythical occurrences, which are nothing more than fear inducing control tactics. The decline is also a logical transition. Zeus is now recognized as a myth, as is Osiris and Poseidon. Jesus and “god” will one day fall to the wayside of history and considered cartoonish characters who somehow walked on water and made the blind, see. The big question is, what god will take their place?

I guess gods hand of protection was missing that day. Probably punishment for Atheists and abortion or whatever. Thankfully they found a random bible page at gods murder crime scene. And to the blaze, this story is not “making headlines”.
GOD's "hand of protection" is NEVER MISSING, NOT EVER for HIS KIDS.
HE holds us in the palm of HIS HAND.
And, your comment about "this story is not `making headlines'." Of course it is not.
The msm belongs hook, line and sinker to satan.
Any GOOD NEWS sends them scurrying into their dark little hidey-holes.
vaman, for future reference, it is "God's" with a capital "G" and an apostrophe between the "d" and the "s". Also, it should have been stated "Probably punishment for atheists, abortion or whatever" instead of the way you did it. Lastly, there was no need to put "making headlines" between quotation marks, however, I realize you were trying to make a strong point by doing so. Therefore, I'll give you that one, I suppose. Listen, your terribly mis-punctuated comment has been done to death. It's nothing new. It is an ignorant reaction to a story that gives people peace toward a horrific occurrence of death and destruction. In other words, go be negative elsewhere. You are dragging down the collective of people who clicked to read this story because they wanted to feel better about this terrible event. I would also implore you to learn a little about God and the Bible before you start putting down people for believing its teachings. I would recommend that you research the archaeological evidence of the stories therein which clearly prove Biblical accuracy, truth, and world history. I truly hope you take the time.
God's hand of protection does not protect you from your preordained death. Being one of God's elect does not protect you from your death nor do you live forever. God's people have been killed by the opponents of God's word, heart-attacks, cancer, and natural disasters. We all have to die sometime and it is not the manner of our death that makes a difference, but where we go after we die, except that you are promissed a reward if you are killed for your faith.

Here it comes! The storm of christian persecution! Of course, it’s not happening and never will. Christians who believe this nonsense just show their innate weakness and inability to think objectively. Gay marriage doesn’t hurt anyone and effects no one, unless you are gay and getting married. The fear peddling is aimed at the least educated and least sophisticated population of America. The Southern Baptists, evangelical crowd, already full of panic and fear over virtually everything is now on board with this anti-gay conspiratorial tripe. Businesses which choose to discriminate are not victims. They are bigots waving a bible around falsely claiming mistreatment. They then use the thin and illegitimate veil of “biblical teaching” to justify their obvious prejudice and hatred, propagated by their religion and religious teachers, like Graham. Pray all you want, as it is the act of doing nothing, but gay marriage is here to stay.
I'm convinced that many of my fellow Christians realise how contradictory our lives of luxury are with Christianity. We know that we are supposed to be uncomfortable, and so we seek persecution where it doesn't exist. The idea that we will be persecuted because of the legalisation of homosexual marriage is absolutely inane and ridiculous.
Weakness? Who brought up compromised immune systems the 'collective' pay for vapid? We can go underground like in Europe over the centuries. Mail order your collar and robes and start marrying.
In your rant you ignored that fact that the only person who has been persecuted in this story is the Christian. Not for trying to stop a same sex marriage, just for the act of opting out of participating in it. The wedding, by all accounts, took place. Nowhere is there a record of the florist attempting to stop the marriage, or that she made any anti-homosexual comments.
The only hatred expressed has been by those attacking her.
