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,

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.

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?

Middle school kids didn’t decide anything. The parents told them to be there. A 13yo lacks the knowledge and sophistication to understand the topic, but so do their parents.
BS....my daughter knows that she doesn't want boys in her bathroom....come on, how dumb are you.

Clearly the GOP would not want that same FOIA requests made to the former Bush administration regarding the immoral and illegal war in Iraq. Nor would future GOP presidents want FOIA requests made against their administrations. Another laughably ridiculous plan by the GOP, which of course will not come to fruition.

Angry, adolescent christians. “My god is better than your god”. Like children crying on the playground.
Allah is not Gods name . if you do any study's of the Koran you will see it's the name of a rock that they worship , it's in the dome of the rock mosque .!!!
Do you have no reading comprehension skills? "Muhammad not greater than Jesus"
Who exactly was "crying" in this story? Hint, it was not Christians.

It’s Zuckurberg’s company and he can do anything he wants with it. Of course, conservative opinions are not banned or somehow limited. Unfortunately, the lies and other nonsense spouted by those groups is on my FB feed every day. The paranoid, conspiracy laden, anti-obama racism and everything else is there for the world to see.

Christians have a penchant for teaching falsehoods when it relates to sexual education. Abstinence as an example (Sarah Palins daughter). They don’t use current of factual information. Too much bible based stuff and other nonsense. So the government is forced to participate in the process. As they should, it is the government and that is one of its functions.
Wow...don't light a match, you don't get burned. You don't have sex, you don't get pregnant. Don't need the bible for that one.

Thought, reason, intelligence, objective and fact based decision making are missing from the religious right, so they must rail against events like the Reason Rally. It pulls people away from superstition and infantile fantasies; talking snakes, magic babies and such. Thousands of people will attend, where religious gathering on the mall are attended by the 10’s, sometimes 100’s of people. Ray Comfort is trying to revive a dead culture and giving himself some free publicity. Because as we know, these pastors love money.
Objective truth speaks to the existence of a perfect and eternal entity...do research and find out.
There is often lots of money for those in the god business. Ray Comfort, Ken Ham, and all those silly televangelists do really well bilking the gullible. It's like a tax free and legal con game.
Infantile fantasies like nothing created everything?
vaman - money money money - that is the soul of the Religion Industry - the reason for tax exempt. The Religion Industry is double tax exempt - the industry itself is tax exempt and the source of the income is also tax exempt.
The Religious Zealots/Bigots give Christians and Conservatives a bad name by claiming to be both.

These fanatical Cruz supporters like Mike Walsh can’t just bow out with grace. The adolescent lashing out is funny and their ignorance astonishing. Cruz could not win. This was an obvious conclusion from day one of his campaign. Look at the filth Cruz pandered to. Anti-American religious extremists and a fellow minuscule population of fringe people. Walsh is correct in one regard, the GOP is about dead. But no offshoot of the party can redeem it. The political pendulum is not swinging back. The obvious biases and hatred of the GOP followers is public knowledge, no longer hidden in the shadows. They roll in it like feces and expect normal Americans to follow. Mike Walsh and his ilk should prepare themselves for the inevitable…Welcome to the White House Madame President.
That very thing has been Trump's goal the entire time. He is a divisive candidate meant to cause infighting within the Republican base, and he succeeded.
Cruz supporters were delusional.
Let's just ignore how he was shunned in the majority of states he visits.
Or just pretend his ENTIRE PARTY doesn't despise him.
Let's not deal with the documented fact he's s big a lair as Trump.
And God told him he'd be President.
And Teddy ACTUALLY said - he puts the Bible before the Constitution.

Dan Bongino is a pariah in the USSS world, to include the association of former agents. He is right-winger, attempted political figure in Md, failed of course. He has difficulty finding work in his chosen field of protection because he talks out-of-turn. He is untrustworthy and an opportunist.
You're just a bitter hateful communist who hates anybody who stands up to you.

You are correct. Trump was endorsed by the Klan, but he never accepted or relished in those endorsements. Cruz acknowledged and happily accepted endorsements from a long list of hate mongers, to include the American Family Association, Liberty Counsel, One Million Moms, Family Research Council and many, many more. That is the difference, all the groups are horrible but Cruz gleefully delighted in the endorsements. It is why he lost.
