“I think that his mother is right not to crush his spirit but she is wrong to make his face and name public. She is putting him in the position to be ridiculed.
I hope this kid is home schooled for a while. They need family therapy not publicity.”

“As if you or anyone else has this child interest at heart more than his own parents. Please.”

“You make a fair point about the publicity. On the other hand, it looks like Dyson has wonderful and solid support from his family (and hopefully, his greater community) to help insulate him from the ignorance and cruelty in society at large.”
“Many bad things go on in the train stations and on the trains. The least that the MTA could do is report statistics. They should further encourage people to report any crime they see commit on the subway.”
“Sarah Palin is trying to appear relevant. She also wants into the political scene more so than she was as the governor of Alaska.
In addition, the separation of church and state is not a debate regarding the existence of God.”

“Separation of Church and State protects religion communities from the oppressive power of the state. US Constitution does not mind and even favor religion communities' participation in the government policies.”
“As much as the separation of church and state and state is and should be the rule, many of you have forgotten your American history. The separation of church and state was so that everyone could feel free to practice their religion without fear of persecution.

“True but what Palin and her ilk wants to do is shove their ideology down the throats of everyone including those who do not believe in their fairy tales.”
“Having read the article above and some of the comments below, I would put number 10 first. One through nine seems to feed out of individual and collective ignorance about the bible. The words in the bible are clear, regardless of how hard or easy we find adherence to be. The bible is very clear on our treatment of each other.”

“I believe this may be the case on both sides of the isle. I have noticed that many people who choose not to practice Christianity have never read the Bible in their life and have made a particular case not to. This is true with many Christians as well.”
“People do not like to admit it but the vast majority of the people need the government’s rules and regulations. They need their pensions and 401Ks protected. Sometimes they need workers compensation and unemployment insurance. All of this stuff costs money.
It all comes down to the money that one party spent versus the money the other party spent.”
“Mark Zuckerberg has probably not had his privacy breached in a way that he found extremely difficult to recover. Many other people have had their privacy breached in devastating ways. Zuckerberg attitude tells me that as usual we are on our own when it comes to protecting ourselves.”
“I have never seen anyone lying on the street in obvious distress. If I ever did, I would help them. It is as I said before; we are our brother's keeper. It is incumbent upon all of us to help anyone in need.”
“This man death is an absolute tragedy. It is also reminiscent of a city that has begun to turn its face away from people in need of assistance. How many times do we need to hear about people being attacked or killed while miraculously no one saw anything?”
