Frank Schaefer To Hold News Conference: Suspended Pastor Remains Firm On Gay Marriage

Commented Dec 19, 2013 at 08:03:57 in Religion

“The gay marriage horse is put of the barn. It's only a matter of time before it's more widely accepted in mainstream churches. But it could be quite sometime, like a decade or two.”

“It really depends on whether there are strings attached. Do Koch bros get to choose the visiting scholars they are paying for - in which case CU is being corrupted by the money and selling professorships. If it's a gift with no strings attached that would be fine - expect that there is no such thing.”

“His name is King Arthur Pendragon and he dresses like he's going to one of those upstate Renaissance Festivals, or Comicon. So he gets quoted and pictured as an authoritative news source? Hey everybody! I'm Queen Hippie Hippie Snapdragon - wearing a grass skirt and coconut shells on my breasts, and I say it's fine what they're doing to the Stonehenge.”

Student Sam McNair Suspended For Sexual Harassment After Hugging Teacher

Commented Dec 18, 2013 at 20:06:46 in Parents

“Ruining a HS students foreseeable future is absurd and offensive considering all he did was a quick hug from behind and backed off immediately - it's obvious he meant no harm. Overly effusive perhaps - but clearly not meant to harass the teacher.”

125cbj on Dec 18, 2013 at 23:28:00

“Bet you anything he like that teacher . and Sam do have a problem especially when he has been warned . because students already know they are not suppose to play with teachers . no less a guy grab and put his body on a female / teacher from the back .”

“Not obvious to me. He had been warned previously. He proceeded at his own peril. If this was the work place he would have been terminated.”

“McCane and Reid are famously friendly to one another. "I'll kick the crap out of you" is how Sen McCain expresses his highest esteem.”

“Yes and John was referring to what he was about to say, which is why Harry told him he would expect nothing less. Sorry I know that it just kills the cons here hoping a fist fight would break out, but they really are good buddies.”

“Would any of these complaints be different or less if the Republican health care plan became law? Oh, right. ObamaCare is the old Republican plan and the Republicans wanted nothing to do with drafting the Affordable Health Care Act. They were too busy trying to make Obama a one term president to participate in the democratic (small "t") process of legislation. Now everybody complains.”

noknrc on Dec 15, 2013 at 20:30:50

“First of all . This was not suppose to be political. it was suppose to be affordable and basically involve only the 30 million who did not have coverage .
The problem is that it has effected more then it was billed to effect and it is far from being affordable.
Many did not pay any attention to what was going on since it did not effect them since they had coverage they were happy with.”

“Degrade most inmates to minimum security - that's much cheaper than high and max. Early release for nonviolent offenders who have been model prisoners and for earning a diploma or useful trade - oh yeah restore funds for training for useful trades and education services so to reduce recidivism. Cheaper to educate and train than keep in jail.”

demsd on Dec 14, 2013 at 23:53:00

“How about not locking up first-time, non-violent offenders, period? Supervised release is much less expensive and its effective.”

Choyce2020 on Dec 13, 2013 at 18:57:17

“Rich914, I think your idea is a good one, however due to lacking of funding almost ALL prisons have stopped/reduced educational or trades training for a very long time. Or there are waiting lists which serve no purpose b/c inmates are transferred out before they can take the courses they need to become educated or learn a new trade. YES, states SHOULD restore funding for training of inmates but every state always seem to be in financial dire straits.

Still think your idea is an excellent one though & wish the STATES would see & implement this into a plan...then, do it!!! Of course, there will still be the need for "job creation" afterwards. Thank you for a good well-thought out comment.”

“The portraits are very good, but they ought to be paid for by private contributions. If politicians can raise millions for their campaigns, extravagant inaugurals and presidential libraries, they can surely pay for their quaint oil portraits.”

“It's symbolic of course. Germany will certainly compete, but it's president will not attend. The President is not the head of state by the way. Chancellor Merkel is.”

“Adam Smith, Hume, Locke as well as contemporary capitalist theory economists such as Milton Friedman have strongly emphasized the importance of stability as necessary to effective capitalism. Government is viewed by the capitalist as one of the agents of stability by policies and governance that promote and sustain stability which of course requires that wealth be apportioned equitably and that the poor and feeble be tended to humanely - not only because it's the moral calling of wealthy nations but because stability and order require such economy equity. The capitalist - the real ones- acknowledge the common good, they don't say to heck with the weak and the poor. Rush is not a real capitalist - he does not understand that the basics of capitalism promote stability through economic equity.”

Catothemuchyounger on Dec 8, 2013 at 19:54:40

“None of which changes the fact that the RCC has never fully come to accept capitalism, and that underlying the Popes speech is a intellectual tradition that is pre modern and hostile to capitalism.”

“Of the 280k Kentuckians who may be losing their existing health coverage, well over 260k are going to end up with better coverage at lower cost. The others will replace their health insurance with very comparable and affordable plans. There is just no reason for the feigned outrage.”

“As an alternative to a hundred hours a week wasted on YouTube, FB and video games, a part time job is an excellent opportunity for young adults. The reduced minimum wage makes sense, because employers will have to babysit these kids and employers are free to pay more for incentive and reward to kids who out perform. For Summer jobs, there is no need to obtain school district approval at all, unless the student is required to enroll in summer classes for academic reasons. Hey a little work never hurt.”

mld1983 on Dec 4, 2013 at 09:16:16

“12 is not a young adult and yeah work doesn't hurt but a 12 year old in restaurant kitchen would be a bad thing. Have them clean the house, do chores and give them an allowance. They'll learn the same work ethic and responsibility that they might miss a job, where the manager isn't interested in teaching those life skills.”

Larry E Wells on Dec 4, 2013 at 09:13:15

“There is a method for kids to hold summer jobs. There is absolutely no need to lower the minimum wage as this is only a way to demean workers. Any business that can't pay $7.25 an hour doesn't need to be in business .”
