“Interesting. I was going to say that personally I thought always thought Molly Shannon was funnier than either of these two. But, she certainly isn't as good looking. Is that why she never "made it" I wonder? Assuming these two have! ;)”

“Because she's not that funny, and certainly wasn't an exceptional writer/director.
These two aren't famous for being funny actresses and comedians (though they are.)
It's their writing that has made them truly successful.”
“Well, Martin Bashir is pretty convinced he's the daytime king (at least) over there; even if no one else is! True, he has a "commentary" style show rather than a "reporting" style. A lot of "news" is just commentary these days which I don't really care for. If I want commentary I'll listen to Rush or Stephanie Miller. Although, I believe that more people are "okay" with Mr. Bashir's comments than you might think. It's sad, really it is.”
“As someone who doesn't support the death penalty I don't usually comment on these kinds of things. But after reading some of these remarks, I can only wonder what kind of society we truly live in when the supposed "good guys" are speaking with so much hate. Is it any wonder that a society like ours spawns the kind of behavior that warranted this man the death penalty? I'm not one that typically embraces the "it takes a village" theory, but at the end of the day should we really be ignoring this sea of hate and vengeance coming from ALL sides?”
“What I am referring to isn't about a "group." I meant that no "human" (singular, not plural) can take away another human's (singular again) relationship with God. Perhaps I shouldn't be making that kind of statement on a post about "religion" per se, rather, what I'm referring to is more about "spirituality." No human will ever eliminate my personal relationship with God, whether I and like-minded folks have a place to gather or not, whether leaders are free or not, whether the media participates or not. If every "religious" human operated with this mindset, we would have less resistance on a personal level, thereby making resistance a little more tolerable on a "national" level. But I certainly see your point! :)”
“No human can cause another human to cease being "religious" or "not religious."”

“No... but they can be killed off, as is happening in so many places to religious minorities. That's the issue. They're forced to hide in the shadows for their faith or else be executed.”

“No? People can hound them and spy on them, whoever 'them' it is. Deny them the places to gatter, throw their leaders, and themselves in jail, dry up thier sources in media and use the media to paint them in worthlessness or evil.
Under those conditions, you can make a group rootless, and people leave it in despair, or practice it so underground they struggle to continue living....
I've seen it happen , I've read of it happening...it can indeed 'happen'.”

“No but they can kill them, which is what this article is about.”
“This family was featured on that show on Investigation Discovery, I think it's called "Disappeared." According to the show, there was a lot more going on and that's why the authorities thought they had left on purpose. The show featured security camera footage from their house the morning of their disappearance; something was clearly wrong then. They were also supposedly involved with witchcraft or the occult or something I believe. Also, there was footage from a security camera at the border which showed two adults and two children who looked VERY similar to this family walking into Mexico. This poor family. Something obviously was very, very wrong. May they rest in peace.”
