A southern racist GOPer from Georgia. Right. He made treasonous comments about the President dying and hoping that it would happen. What else would you expect from a racist, treasonous GOPer from GA?

The faith and freedom forum is nothing more than a gathering of the worst America has to offer. The similarities to a Klan meeting are remarkable. The outright hate speech, bigotry and pandering to the least educated and least sophisticated people in the country. All wrapped in a few bible verses. These types of people are a disease on this country.

The right-wing mantra of “support the troops” is garbage. Support the troops do you? Then stop sending them to war in foreign lands to fight people who pose no threat to the US.
Maybe right wing mantra, but not true conservatives' mantra.

I am surprised this is even a discussion point. The President and the “government” have been kicking in doors and confiscating guns for his entire presidency. Right? Oh, that’s never happened, not once. Darn. The right-wingers are running out of time for this cataclysmic anti second amendment apocalypse to occur. Will they admit how absurd this idea is when Hillary becomes President or will she be the one that takes all the guns next?

More of the christian persecution narrative; an outright lie contrived by christians to combat their endless social and political losses in this country. A belief system based on personal bigotries with shabbily tossed together bible verses as defense of those personal hatreds. This is what they have reverted to. A small number of crazies swinging bibles around ranting about “lakes of fire”.

These people are not “christian parents” and perceived victims of a “socialist” government. The parents are radicalized christian extremists and will continue to victimize their children with the hate mongering and uncivil behavior of today’s christian zealots. They will continue teaching their children the christian ideology which is tantamount to teaching fairytales. It is indoctrination at its worst.
Good to know you have a handle on every person in the world. At least I have a handle on one more person who has presented themselves as a judgmental person that projects their own ideas and opinions onto others without any sort of reference. Political and religious nonsense. Your ideas are your own, theirs are their own. What you deem a fairytale, is as much your own fairytale to others.
Get a life. Leave others to theirs. That's the point.
And I am sure you have proof to back up your assertion?
Varman's statement is obviously patently false about the family and the nature of Christianity. But we should not just dismiss this comment, but rather understand that this mentality is a product of our public school system. And parochial schools don't have curricula that are much better. This is what we have to look forward to in western society if we don't start actually teaching our children how to think vs. what to think. Who will govern our nation when the world is populated with individuals who do not have the education nor the morality to do so effectively? What will that world look like?
Just proof that vaman is a bigot/hater of those that actually have beliefs
The same as the fairy tale being told by the libertards that a man can be a woman. I wonder why a male that dresses as a female, would want to use the female restroom if they still have their junk? I guess they sit down to pee and pretend they have a vagina.
You sound like the communist dictatorship of the former Soviet Union.
But you would never say that about muslims would ya?

Trump knows 2 things very well. The wall will never be built and his audience likes fiery rhetoric, no matter how ridiculous it may be. The Trump estimation of a $15 billion dollar price tag for his wall is woefully incorrect. It’s closer to $1 trillion dollars and is impossible to build. But these facts are irrelevant to Trump. He understands screeching the same nonsense repetitively to his simple minded audience may garner votes.
The wall WILL BE BUILT.
It may be physical in some sections and electronic in others. In all cases it will be manned by a REAL BORDER PATROL, and ALL ILLEGALS WILL BE REPATRIATED TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY!
NOW THAT IS SIMPLE ENOUGH FOR EVEN YOU TO UNDERSTAND!

Atheism is already legitimate. The decline in religious belief is substantial on a global scale. The embracing of a rational, fact based information is already highly embraced. This country is slow on the uptake, but always is. Positive change is generational. The older generation and their beliefs die off and something better replaces it. There will always be extremists who have absolute religious belief systems that will never change. The world does not function in absolutes, so they become frightened of an every changing world.
Cool story bro….
I’m not religious but you sound very silly right now. Religion and faith in God will never go away – it is as old as the ages as has been atheism. The thing atheist’s need to come to grips with is that proclaiming atheist are smarter than non-atheists doesn’t make it so. I have met as many dumb atheists as I have dumb religious. I’m not bashing you for your belief – I am bashing you for your silly conclusion and the way you state it as if it is a scientific fact. Simply put - your wrong. Proof is in the history of the nature of mankind. The number of people who believe in a higher power, a creator, a designer or God will always outnumber those who believe our existence and the universe we live in is random chaos
“This country is slow on the uptake, but always is.”
What a stupid statement, Vaman. This is the strongest, most desirable country in the world. True that as we coddle the wimps and shirkers we become weaker, but many who write here defended your freedoms. They gave you the opportunity to write such crap, hoping you’d be more appreciative but not demanding that.
Counter to your last statement about us being frightened at an ever changing world, it was our courage that stepped up to defend freedom around the globe.

Look how desperate radical christians are. Trump is man who has had endless affairs, cheated on all of his wives and commits shady business deals. He lacks scruples in totality. He is the antithesis of a Huckabee or Cruz, which are the evangelical favorites. Anything to have him elected, but he doesn’t care about religion. He panders to those people, but in office, he won’t care one bit. The desperation is pathetic.
It's wonderful to find people like you who are not easily swayed by the masses and understand that the gospel of Jesus Christ is pure and lovely. James 1:27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. God bless you wherever you go!
He hasn't had as many affairs as Hillary"s husband.

The premise of the argument is correct, just with bad examples. There has been an attempted hijacking of the word “family” by the radical right to mean only straight couples copulating to produce offspring. That is of course of fallacy. Anyone can have a family. It doesn’t have to include children. A couple alone can be a family. A single person with close brothers and sisters are a family. A single person with good friends is a family. And yes gay and lesbians have families.
Bad example or not, I'm offended by people who are offended at everything. I guess I travel in the wrong (or maybe right) circles because I have grandchildren and have never in my life had anyone announce that they are ready to start a family. Some people have to really lower the bar to find something that offends them. Bill can get over the "Female" thing too. I will go to jail before I use those new, genderless pronouns. It's just not happening.
I family means everything, it means nothing...

Good for that school system. Man-made climate change is a fact. A few right wingers and other fringe members of society state differently. 98-99% of scientists who study the field agree. Climate change is real, dangerous and man-made. Your personal choice not to believe a fact, does not stop it from being a fact.

A christian prayer has no place in a public setting. If the school will not allow any and all other religions to express a sentiment or prayer, then the action is wrong and is illegal. Radical christians will see this as the never ending fictitious war on christianity, but it is simply not advocating for one religion. Bow your heads, the prayer to Allah is next. You can’t have it both ways.
Nobody asked for your permission. We are a free people. Americans.
Well do what we want even if it pisses you off. Do you got that?
It's just another arrogant form of proselytizing.
And NOTHING to be lauded.
I guess if the majority of students at the school were Mooselimbs then they probably would be praying to Allah and I guarandam tee the atheists groups wouldn't be getting their panties in a wad over it. But if we as Americans were smarter, we'd make it so uncomfortable for the religions of pieces to live here, they'd all leave. And BTW, before you go off on some anti-religious diatribe, you should know I'm agnostic bordering on atheist and as far as I'm concerned, what these kids was not only awesome, but heroic in this day and age.
A Christian prayer has a place in every setting where Christians are gathered. You don't have to participate, and are free to pray to whatever, or whomever you wish. Since you are not being forced to participate, all of your protests come off as proselyting for your own Atheist religion.
Public setting? So they can't pray on street corners either? You have no right to stop them from praying in public. Similarly, the school cannot compel anyone to participate. In theory, every student could refuse to participate and there would be no prayer.
Can you clarify public setting? Do you mean you can only pray inside your house and church? People that go out to eat and pray before the meal better not do it around you?
We have for over 200 years idiot!
Our country our rules!!! Don't like it move to Soviet liberal state of California dude!!!
But the right wing Christians do want it both ways!
They're not interested in a level playing field.
That is why they are hypocrites to the majority of Americans.
The school did not authorize the prayer- the students themselves had the freedom under the first amendment to have free speech- no one was compelled by anyone in an "official" position
So vaman tell me where the radical Christians live and what are their universal offenses. You have been told this. It was radical Christians that led the fight to end slavery in the civilized world. Yes I used "that word" and yes I did mean that there are uncivilized countries and peoples in this world.

A church is an excellent place to discuss mental health. Too many christians believe you can simply pray away things like depression. That is clearly not true. It will also drive the point that christianity or other forms of fiction are a mental illness. Do you believe in magic babies, walking on water, 900 year old men? Then you clearly need mental health treatment.
Err………scientist have proven that given the right conditions the human body can live beyond “the age of the era.” meaning in the 1700 century the majority of people died 40/50s 2000 century 60/80s today ……80s/120s. Hate to burst your bubble but all the stuff written in the Bible. scientist set out to verify to prove it is impossible and are finding out that it is indeed possible. http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2009/03/can-humans-live.html
Oh...and your god is in a little blue pill. Then of course; you need a yellow pill do to the problem the blue pill caused. Until you end up taking 8 to 20 pills a day. Mean time you find out 10 years later that all the info on the subject was wrong. And those pills caused more problems. And then people have to go to the churches. Because after paying their mandated Obama care. They still can't afford their copays. And of course their starving, and out on the street. And of course the Obama care still wouldn't authorize care because of the Death Panels polices that denied to to your doctor.
But it is funny that a Liberal Democrats that push for government to be the new god. Is going to the church for help. Not only that. The fact that the Libs can't see they are reason their children have problems. They grew up just like them.

Lesbians are part of daily life. They are all around you. Their relationships are valid and their marriages legal, normal and legitimate. Chistian extremists and hate mongers have a different opinion, but that does not invalidate the real world happening around you. The character can be a lesbian and nothing bad will come from it.
We do NOT want to support stuff like this. God makes no one LGBT as Satan wants you to believe. It's Satan who is attacking God's plan. We need to share God's truth in a loving way and pray. We need to stop encouraging and celebrating this child abuse. We need to take a stand against Satan who is putting this stuff in people's minds. To put this stuff in children's media is sickening and The Lord Jesus Christ warns about leading children into sin. I will pray.
And lesbian discrimination and abuse is real too. When will those lesbians do the majority of dieing for the country that gave them those rights?
So...again. How can women be treated as being weak. And sweet and innocent in a lesbian couple? Another liberal conflict with reality.
And again. The dirty little secret is out.
Maybe it is time for you to put down the pretty crayons. And be in the real world.
It has no place in children's entertainment. Period. It is deviancy regardless if it is happening in the world or not. Murder happens in the world too, but that does not mean I want my children watching it,
May 23, 2016 at 12:52pm
People who crave truth reject religion or at a minimum consider it a superfluous part of their life. Truth comes from objective thinking and knowledge based on facts and information. It does not come from Bronze Age myths and superstitions. I mean, how silly is someone who believes in Zeus, right? Same though process for jesus.
A fictional god cannot perform fictional miracles. It’s nice to think about, but alas none of it is true. The miracle idea fits in well with christian ideology. If something good happens, it’s a miracle! When something bad happens, god just works in mysterious ways. Believing in miracles is equal to believing in magic beans.
"Fictional "god"? You mean like the fictional material cause for the universe, or the fictional material cause for life from non-life?
You see, today many are guilty of a sort of watered down definition of a "miracle", even when things occur that have no readily apparent naturalistic explaination, like a complete remission from an incurable form of cancer, which does happen.
But, Biblicly, "Miracles" are those acts that only God can perform; usually superseding natural laws. Baker’s Dictionary of the Bible defines a miracle as “an event in the external world brought about by the immediate agency or the simple volition of God.”
What that means is an occurrence which can be directly attributed to an action by God. In this case the explaination "is" God. Not some maybe, sorta, what else could it be possibility.
Take for instance the Resurrection of Christ, and occurrence which the Bible tells us is directly the result of an action taken by God.
Nothing mysterious about it. Whether one believes in God or not, by definition, it would be within the power of God to effect "Miracles". On His terms, not yours or mine.

We have done business with Germany since that war ended. No respect for the millions that died there I guess.
 May 23, 2016 at 12:38pm
The war has been over for 40 years. It is well past the time to normalize relations.
Because they’ve accounted for all the missing in action? Because they’re done torturing their own people? Of course we must make nice with countries whose political philosophy is state autocracy and popular submission to the state. Next up, the Sudan.
Yeah - one thing comes to mind - HOW MUCH IS THE "F" TRIP costing the Taxpayers.
AND if the SOB makes 400 Grand a years, is he gonna take a pay deduction for the time HE''S FOO THE JOB screwing around? Not to mention the couple MILLION COST for AF-! fuel alone.
But on a bright note........what if the ground crew "forgot" to REFUEL for the trip back?????
Why? How does this benefit the US? When do you get out of Jr. high?

On the world scene, another crushing blow to the bigots and hate mongers. Even in staunchly catholic Mexico, the issue is up for a vote. If it fails this time, same sex marriage will eventually be part of Mexican daily life.
Still such an incredible minority in this country, but Dems and Libs would have us think it is much larger than it really is.
 May 18, 2016 at 8:48am
The insane woman swinging the bible around screeching at people is the real threat. That’s what too much jesus does to a person. It makes them psychologically imbalanced. This is an excellent example of the mental illness of christianity gone unchecked. An unhinged woman walking around a Target store.
When using proper names you use Capital letters. EG: “Jesus” also “Christianity”
I see you put a capital for the store name though!
Must be a tranny shopper,ah! ( you should talk about mental illness )
You are threatened by speech? What threat does this woman pose?
She's unhinged?! You have people walking around half this and half that and you call her unhinged? Remarkable. You've bought in hook line and sinker. And one question, where were they peeing before the prez decided they were his best buds?
