“Okay. Let's pretend he didn't exist, and we'll just identify him has an old historical legend. Pecos Bill is an old legend. So is Paul Bunyon. Robin Hood. King Arthur. The list goes on. Would a portrait of any of those folks get the ACLU's panties in a twist?”

“They would if any of them were the force behind a major religion. A picture of Buddha, or Mohammed, or Joseph Smith would bring the same reaction. ”

“How 'bout this: Jesus was a historical figure. We have pictures of historical figures in schools all the time. Wasn't Lincoln such a person? Problem solved.”

adhocal on Jan 11, 2013 at 16:44:32

“nice try with a simple answer WRONG....we KNOW what Lincoln looked like and that he actually LIVED....we have NO IDEA of what Jesus looked like and there is actually question as to whether he actually existed as the figure that he is represented to be...and Lincoln was not a religious figure that people are expected to BELIEVE IN in order to have supernatural things happen....your simple answer pretty much defines your existence”

“Then using your logic, they need to display all the other historical figures too...not just one.”

“Actually, there is very little historical proof that Jesus existed. I am not saying he didn't, I believe he did. But there is little to no direct historical evidence. There is a lot more evidence that Paul, and the disciples who wrote the gospels existed.”

“He is an iconic promotion of a religion.
Historical... Not so much.”

“How many of the current employers in Chinatown pay union wages? If they don't, why aren't they being protested?”

“Excellent point.  The selective outrage of the left never ceases to amaze me.”

“Fine. If that's your argument, let the government restrict motorcycle riding, sky-diving, mountain climbing, auto racing, and anything that is in the least bit dangerous. Then the Feds can restrict couples with risky family medical histories, ( like diabetes, heart disease, breast cancer, etc.) from having children. Is that what you want?”

JamesScott on May 23, 2012 at 17:03:29

“There is a difference between educating people and restricting them. However, it IS what the insurance cartel wants, and bet you just can't wait to vote for Romney to help them do it.”

“People who partake in those activities actually do pay higher insurance of various kinds. You will have a hard time getting your auto ins to pay for your wreck if you were drag racing.”

“It's a tough situation. Many of us remember the "no delivery charge" days. Tipping was easy then. Now there is a $2.99 delivery charge. So now i buy a $10 pizza, add $3 for delivery and another $3 tip, and I'm paying 60% more. Nobody wins. I know the feeling, as a bartender myself, folks can get tight when they pay for an $8 drink. They get kind of reluctant to shell out more.”
