Court: NYC Can Ban Church Service In Public School

Court: NYC Can Ban Church Service In Public School

Commented Apr 6, 2014 at 16:55:48 in Religion

“So, if a pornographer decided to use the facilities on a Saturday you would be fine with it? No students are around and pornography has been protected under the first amendment thanks to a true American treasure, Larry Flynt. And would it also be fine if the cast & crew of said productions mentored students, or would they then be considered to young & impressionable?”

“You are beginning to mix apples and oranges a little bit. First of all, as far as I know, we are not talking about churches mentoring the kids. In fact, if the church is using their status at the church as a 'staging ground,' then that's wrong. Also, the school has a code of policy that would cover any group utilizing the facility (clean up, decorations and whatnot), so the porn company probably wouldn't be welcome to shoot there...although to have planning meetings, then yep, they should be allowed to utilize the space.”

“I decided to take the bait and check out your link..The first part was about last years boycott of Chick-Fil-A. That was really a red herring. First-the chain never desscriminated against any employee or customer that was gay. It was only the owner being interviewed on Christian Broadcasting station what his personal thoughts were about gays. As it turns out Chil-Fil-A did so much business on that day they set records for themself.”

“Objectivity allows a person to view a situation from all angles and decide for themselves what the cause is, people of faith are constrained by their faith to believe that God is the cause for everything.  Believing that you know for a fact how the universe was created & that you have a special relationship with the creator is the height of arrogance & ignorance. ”

CJB59 on Aug 30, 2013 at 12:54:43

“There you go again. You define. Objectivity correctly. And then you prove you have none.  People of faith are constrained .... God is the cause for everything". Not very objective statement.  Our choices are also cause of many things.  ( Moises that did you.? ).  Next, I have no idea how the universe was created. I have a few hypotheses but nothing reaching I am certain about.  (No objectivity or reality basis friend ).  
I do have a relationship with the divine. Then again most everyone does 96%.  And all can if they choose to. I am no better or worse than anyone. Arrogant? I think not.  If orang? I was given evidence to base my decision one.  How a out you?  Another wonderful demonstration of blind faith leading to denial and a complete lack of objectivity. ”

“I'm sure you believe it to believe it to be empirical evidence, but the majority of people who would apply logic & reason would only see the mundane normality of everyday life.  The problem with "faith" is that it forces people to lose objectivity.”

CJB59 on Aug 29, 2013 at 23:12:43

“Really?  faith forces people to loss objectivity.  I tell you I have verifiable evidence and you assume that by applying logic and reason it would be everyday life.  You see a bit of hypocrisy on that statement?  Do you know what logic and reason are?  Can you apply them to demonstrate my evidence to be no evidence?  Sure looks like you have just demonstrated a complete lack of objectivity, reason, and logic.  You think maybe your thoughts are a bit off on this topic.  Care to try again?  ”

“Really?  And how would you know that.  There are billions on relationship with the divine.  Personally, I have been given empirical verifiable evidence which turned me from atheist to faithful.  So, how exactly is it that you know you have as much evidence as the rest of the world that knows better?  Kind of funny arrogance and ignorance all at once.    ”

“Do you mean Christian scientists or Christian Scientists? It is possible to be intelligent & still be gullible. Only 7 percent of scientists belonging to the national Academy of Sciences believe in a God, that's not exactly countless.”

“Try looking at history. Many scientist have been members of the clergy such as Newton, Capernicus, Mendel and de Chardin. Plus the best biology teacher who ever taught me in college was a devout Christian. They do exist. Check this out:

“While that may all be true, their brash actions may prompt a countersuit for wrongful death citing the safety violations mentioned in the article. This would seem to be exacerbating their damages rather than mitigating them. I'm sure they're caught in a catch 22, if they don't sue her-insurance company says they didn't mitigate, if they do sue- insurance company says they caused the problem to be worse, either way the insurance company has cause to cancel policy or increase premiums. It's almost like they're in America.”

“If Republicans weren't so obsessed with what's going in & out of peoples' respective orifices, or trying to repeal the ACA, maybe they could get to their goal of jobs, jobs, jobs. Rest assured as soon as the rate drops significantly Boehner will be taking all the credit. The rate was at 10% a few years ago, with an obstructionist House which doesn't represent the popular vote of the people, it's amazing it's decreasing at all.”

“the problem is it's not just the extremists anymore, everyone I know who goes to church on a regular basis is becoming slowly(or not so slowly) radicalized.
