A shutdown so clearly fails as a political tactic. What type of imbecile would suggest it (Ted Cruz and the author of this article, I guess). The country loses money. Federal employees receive back pay, meaning the shutdown is a paid vacation. Monuments close (no veterans allowed in). Ultimately, the whole scenario is ridiculous, except for Ted Cruz who looks like a hero to the tiny voting block who consider him a real politician. Yet another reason he will never be president.

See how the Blaze took this nothing story and turned it in to an anti-gay story. One of the greatest bogus talking points of the radical right is gay marriage will lead to polygamy, although the two are not congruent. In fact they have nothing in common. Polygamy is based on a patriarchy system of control and abuse, using christian (Mormon) scare tactics to keep the wives in line. They are no more than chattel to the husband. The opposite of gay marriage. It’s a useless argument and was tried in the Supreme Court who quickly dismissed it as more of the bigoted rhetoric of radicalized christian extremists.

The child molesting, philanderer and all around scum bag gets caught and want rehab. Anything to save the public appearance. It’s actually rather smart. He will go to a “christian rehab” center, which amounts to nothing. He will do a little praying and boom god forgives him, making all of his transgressions fall away. He will then be picked up by the Family Research Council or another hate group as their spokesman. A recovered heathen who found god and is all better now. His poor wife though. She was raised a domestic slave (quiverful Christianity), with no formal education. She can’t divorce him. Her parents would disown her and a lifetime of “obey thy husband” has brainwashed her into staying with this horrible person.

Good point and good possibility of it.

The clerks major problem is Matt Staver. Long known as a bigot, his group is a recognized hate group and he is just a poor lawyer who has only one repetitive argument, which is people can do anything they like because “the bible says so. It’s so ridiculous, it’s remarkable anyone would even contemplate such an argument.
People give up constitutional rights all the time when taking a job. Under the guise of freedom of speech, can you talk openly about classified information? No of course not. Religious liberties are not being denied. The choice to be a radicalized christian bigot is being denied. The clerk needs to stop giving that buffoon Staver publicity. He will destroy her by the time this is all over. It’s doubtful the Supreme Court would hear the case. The clerk will be fired and possibly imprisoned, which will of course play in to the false christian persecution narrative. This poor deluded lady is wrecking her own life for a backwards cause based in pure hatred and evil.

What a pleasant sentiment. Throw apple pie and a puppy on stage the military fetishists may actually explode. In other news, what fictional cataclysmic event is Beck talking about today? Get your guns, god and gold people. It’s all about to fall apart.
Radicalized christian hate mongers and not much else. This publicity stunt, although cute( everyone loves free cake) really means nothing. That film which they are promoting is just the same unfounded lies and rhetoric from the christian extremists. Marriage equality is a done deal and soon anti-discrimination laws will be passed at the federal level. It’s all over and the radicals have lost.
Could you be any more wrong? Btw... what you're not understanding is this: if the radicals (your word, not mine) have lost, that means you have lost too. Wake up...
Never read ANYTHING about the true story did you?
Come on, if you're gonna troll at least put some effort and originality into it.
Hate and evil is in your heart, learn to love and you will probably be accepted by all, continue to hate and you will only be accepted by the haters.
That's what it's all about for you isn't it? Not love, not acceptance.
It's about conquest and forcing others to submit. The Gay Mafia is no better than ISIS, you're petty & small for all the noise you make....
In America we are more and more likely to ridicule the differences among us. We are different in so many ways, but especially in what we believe. When we decide to call the people who don't believe as we do "hate mongers" etc etc. There is no talking or sharing beliefs, just screaming insults and using the court system to stomp on people who have opposite views. Then someone starts using the "what if's" What if there was only one bakery... What if if was blacks... This court case is what it is. The bakers didn't want to participate in something they decided went against their religion. So let them. We are supposed to have freedom here. One Gay fellow wrote an article about how embarrassed he was over all the nasty rhetoric from his own side. If you are trying to impress the rest of the world with your wisdom and knowledge, the gays that scream unfounded insults at people like these bakers do nothing for their own cause.

What consideration is given to the victims of these reported criminals? The judge would change his mind if he was the victim of a crime. If some guy punched him in the face, I seriously doubt the judge would want any delay in the trial process. This is wrong in many ways, to include a suspects right to a speedy trial.
These were not serious crimes, but minor, victimless infractions. Almost all warrants issued by the court were to coerce payment for fines, not for public safety reasons.

This article sells Mr. Swales as nothing more than a “tour guide”. In reality, he is also a big game hunter and got what he deserved. On another bright note, the infamous dentist/murderer is still in hiding. The bounty on his head still exists.
Do you have your Peta hunting license? I've taken 'big game' all over the whirled if you want to do some practice hunting of an actual apex predator. I'll even wear a collar for you and purr on occasion. Got boots?
do the other 250 humans killed by lions every year also "get what they deserve"?
you know lions' human victims are most often villagers minding their own business, right?
I was wondering about Palmer so I guess that pathetic loser is a bit of a coward even when being hunted only by his own species. As more and more humans invade more and more previous wildlife territory and thus crowding wildlife into smaller and smaller and insufficient spaces, there will be more and more conflicts. I just hope we see more wilderness, national parks, and preserves to allow all species adequate space for each to thrive in. It is not an either or situation, humans or animals/nature, we can do both well. Now for the down votes I am sure without actual research into why there is so much more conflict happening. .
wow vaman, you're an idiot. Animals are here for our use. They are soul-less things. There is nothing immoral about killing an animal. Just because you have a childish attachment to an animal, doesn't make more important. You kill hundreds or thousands of living things in your daily life just driving a car. Let me guess, you get to magically decide what animals are important based on your childish attachments? Yeah, I figured.
If you believe in evolution and out of Africa theory then you know lions ate many of our ancestors and that is why we still fear the dark.
Otherwise when an animal life is put above a human life then your value of your species is twisted. All human lives matter, from the lowliest scumbag to the nicest person.
I will drop an animal in an instant to save a persons life.
"This article sells Mr. Swales as nothing more than a “tour guide”. In reality, he is also a big game hunter and got what he deserved."
So if someone kills and abortionist will you say the same thing or more likely are you just another worshipper of animals that puts animals above humans?
"On another bright note, the infamous dentist/murderer is still in hiding. The bounty on his head still exists."
Oh a bright note you say.
Yeah what a happy day when bloodthristy monstrous hypocrites want to murder poeple just because said people did something the Nazilibs don't approve of the their fake phony name of phony so called 'compassion'..
It's just an excuse to spread the hatred and violence these Nazilibs love so much
I'll bet you,the lions at the zoo will let you scratch them behind the ears because they know you're their friend.Go on,they'll love you for it.

Beck must be a real gem at parties. The world is constantly ending. He doesn’t know how or when or where or anything for that matter, but just has a feeling. Quite the soothsayer. He is a great conman though. He tapped in to an audience who fears boogie men around each corner; who live in a constant state of panic and trepidation over events which never happen. Although Beck’s predictions have been 100% wrong, he still has a substantial amount of supporters and their money. A fool and their money soon part, as the old adage goes.
Don't be so foolish to ignore China and Russia.
You and the rest of the middle class and every stockholder in it are going to personally pay the piper despite your (warranted) conspiracy theory.
Beck is right this time.
Excuse me? Beck was talking about the coming Caliphate 3 YEARS before anyone else in the West had even heard of the word. And here is Obama’s resident financial genius, just last month, stating that China’s market won’t affect us.
Could you imagine having him as your father. I bet he gets dark at the dinner table.

Too bad Josh Dugger… christians-favorite-hypocrite, hate monger, liar, fraud, child molester and philander hasn’t taken the same grand exit from this world.
It's not good (for you, either) to hate and wish ill for someone. Though I admit the guy needs counseling.
Maybe Josh is planning a reality show like Bruce - He could call it "19 lays and looking"

That is hysterical! Anti-abortion zealots, some murderers, shooting and bombing as they please have just been the victim of comedy. It’s great. It puts in to perspective the lunacy of the christian radical agenda concerning planned parenthood, where only 3% of its budget funds abortion. The rest is for women’s health issues.
LOL..You are so deluded that you cannot even identify the lunacy in the story...hint....That would be "Forced Motherhood"
If, as you imply, only 3% of their budget funds the murder of the unborn, they can be defunded 3% and still continue with the other women's health issues. Right?
I thought the killing of women with 'the milk of human kindness' was a seriously great touch. It was perfect.
3% is 3% too much.

“It’s because we’re allowing evil to step in.” Actually, the judge stopped evil and the perception of christian superiority. And really, just a dozen or so people participated. This amounts to nothing. How shameful in this modern era that a fictional belief in almost cartoonish characters still permeates our society.
You are more than welcomed to your opinion, and it seems you think pretty high of your own opinion to the point of putting people down for theirs. How special. But you and your ilk FAILED history. And we understand why. History brings to light your effort.
open your eyes. Can you not see the signs? God is very near.

Westboro Baptists – Typical radicalized christians. They are just more publically offensive than most evangelical/pentecostal/souther Baptists. They are true evil in one regard, but a comical blight for christians in another regard.
"It’s good to see these people not being bigoted for a change."
Really? What exactly would you call including a video telling the recipient that they're going to Hell for being born Gay? A loving gesture?

What adults do in the bedroom is the business of the people in that bedroom, unless someone gets hurt. In these situations, a spouse could be getting hurt. The crushing blow of an adulterous spouse must be horrible. Then to do it on a government computer just compounds the problem. What a mess. Of course, the greatest outing was Josh Dugger! He’s Mr. Family Values, children and wives need to be protected guy. He hates cheaters and gays and virtually everyone else and bam! $1000 paid to Ashley Madison, looking for all types of lascivious behavior. The pedophile philanderer is exposed. Unfortunately, his wife has been programed since birth to fear and “respect” her husband, so she won’t leave. A little prayer and everything will be fine. What’s next for Josh? Can’t wait to find out.

Urbadcon…Perfect response to an absurd story.

So technology saved his life, not god. Without the phone, that poor guy would be dead. Make note god didn’t miraculously lift the car and heal the wounds. Nor did god prevent the car from painfully crushing this fellow. All powerful indeed…
No, God provided a way out. I'm sorry you don't believe in God.

Looks like lunatic christian radical and Fox contributor Todd Starnes has actually reported on nothing. Tennessee didn’t revert to anything. They are getting further guidance before deciding what steps to take. A change will be made because, as you know same, sex couples can marry (sorry). There is no story here, well, except to show a false “win” for anti-equality folks.
 August 19, 2015 at 4:06pm
Beck is jerking the god-is-great chain these days to sell a new book and publicize his march, but the fact remains, candidates who are pushing the god agenda are at the bottom of the heap. Huckabee, Cruz, Jindal and whomever else. It is their bible = government agenda which precludes them from having any chance of being taken seriously.
