Some in the GOP aren't content to wait for that. GOP stalking horse and talk show host Mike Huckabee typified that with the outlandish quip that Benghazi will sink the Obama Administration before his term ends.
Your team has ignored and trampled "standards" for years. It was only after discovering that our team wanted to play on your turf that you suddenly started claiming that somehow, because of our anatomy, the game could no longer be called "basketball."
Comparing President Obama to Hitler and Stalin is evidence not of any totalitarian tendencies on the part of Obama. Instead it is evidence that right wing contempt for science is now rivaled by contempt for learning anything about history.
Most of the criticism was entirely predictable. Rush Limbaugh had warmed up the conservative choir before the Super Bowl.
Their tenures in these positions often far out ran the tenure of the president that appointed them. But because they were largely nameless and faceless they got very little attention. Obama's appointments to the judiciary are a near textbook example of that. Few can name any of them.
Among the most recent trees to fall in the forest of Tea Party fiction is the work of alleged "historian" David Barton. Unfortunately, the Barton saga is all too typical of the Tea Party ethos -- one that many in the mainstream media have frequently given a free pass.
While hard to determine which states are the most backwards with not allowing same-sex marriages, states are ranked in order from lowest to highest percent of voters' support in constitutional bans on same-sex marriages.
You have just revealed more about yourself than you realize. I see no difference between your view of God and that of the extreme fundamentalists who actually believe their god uses them to torture and kill others.
The United States leads the developed world in gun-related fatalities: Americans are 20 times more likely to die from a gun than a citizen of another developed country.
Mike Huckabee, Bryan Fischer and Sam Morris, you certainly have the right and the freedom to advocate your positions in a manner of your choice. This time, though, reasonable people, people who are disgusted with the senseless, painful and nation-shattering violence have had enough.
Many of us are shocked every time we hear it, but this type of thinking -- to blame the victim while claiming to read the mind of God -- is not a new thing.
If we let Dobson speak for Christianity, then we fail to counter the toxic theology masquerading as the Good News of God in Christ and we fail to stand up for Jesus.
Earth to Governor Huckabee -- The shootings in Newtown Connecticut didn't happen because we don't allow God in schools. God lives in hearts, not in schools.
The voice of the Christian pacifist is a quiet one, a patient one. Rather than make grand pronouncements, it sets itself to the work at hand. It speaks love, mercy and hope, and, when all else fails, it makes the ultimate sacrifice.
You and I agree on the fact that faith can play an important role in people's lives. Where we disagree is in your assertion that to not believe in God is to put society on a path toward the kind of senseless murder we saw on Friday.
The horrific shootings in Connecticut may be leading some elected officials to consider tackling some problems that have been ignored or considered politically off-limits. But we should not have to rely on tragedies to overcome obstacles to needed action.
