Those rascally christians, laugh a minute I tell ya:

Children barred from Florida church where sex offender preaches
Darrell Gilyard, a convicted child molester, has been allowed to preach again, but his services have been deemed "adults only"

A Florida church has caused outrage by turning away children from its popular Sunday services to cater to a pastor who is a registered sex offender.

The decision to allow convicted child molester Darrell Gilyard into the pulpit has angered neighbouring pastors and members of the congregation of the Christ Tabernacle Missionary Baptist church in Jacksonville.

Gilyard, 49, is allowed no contact with minors under the terms of his release from a three-year jail sentence for abusing a 15-year-old girl at another church in 2009. As a result church leaders have made his services "adults only" ...

Hi Carol.
The nsa isn't getting credit for discovering the terrorist scare. Add that to the boston bombing and it just shows they are looking at the wrong people. It wouldn't suprise me one bit to find out they are concentrating on tea party folks.
Since they've already targeted tea party folks, it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

August is a significant month for Muslims, Ramadan. Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar.

Concerns are being raised that August 9, this Sunday, could also be significant in light of the heightened terror threats - or anytime this month.

Wonder how Obama would handle the unthinkable. He thought we were all getting along so well and declared al-Qaeda on the run quite a number of times right before the election.

Good thing that decision angered neighboring pastors and members of the congregation.

Must be a small confused bunch of people who went along with it.

But don't tell me. You think all Christians are just like them.

An abandoned embassy is even more likely to be attacked.
They have to be opened again too eventually.

Hope Obama has a whole bunch of those remote drones hidden away somewhere. He's made it pretty clear he's not too keen on showing strength or building up our defenses militarily.

Yes, that was an understandable slip. Confusing 40 acres and a mule with sharecropping then accusing the other poster of being uninformed is not a slip up. Its another instance of you thinking you have something when in fact you don't.
Blacks might have had a much different outcome had they been allowed to stay on the land they were given before a Democrat, President Andrew Johnson, took it away from them. Sharecropping emerged as a compromise because of him and that decision.

Again, thank a Democrat for the continued oppression of blacks.

Presidential campaign watchers are on high alert -- Joe Biden is raising money for New Hampshire's governor.

The vice president is actually visiting Maine for an Aug. 22 fundraiser, but the money will benefit Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire -- the state that traditionally holds the first presidential primary.

Biden and former secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are among those who may be considering a 2016 bid to replace President Obama.

From the Associated Press:

"The White House says Biden will appear at an Aug. 22 fundraiser for New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, who faces re-election next year. The event is at the Maine home of Democratic lobbyist Jim Demers. Former Maine Gov. John Baldacci and prominent lobbyist Severin Beliveau are also hosting.

"The event is sure to fuel chatter about Biden's own political pursuits. Raising money for New Hampshire candidates is a rite of passage for presidential aspirants. Biden hasn't closed the door to running again in 2016.

"Hassan attended Biden's swearing-in ceremony in January, the same weekend Biden mingled with Democratic activists from Iowa, another crucial state for presidential primary contests. He's also attended fundraisers in South Carolina."

Not all, I've known some very good Christians.

It's going to be the Democrats turn again in 2016 to defend the past eight years.

Wonder if a commentator will ask Hillary why she made up a story about landing under fire in enemy territory again like in 2008.

Her embarrassment in having to admit her embarrassment was palpable.

This time, she'll be asked why four dead Americans didn't make any difference to her.

He described al-Qaeda as having been “decimated,”“on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to White House transcripts.

But he wouldn't try and mislead you, would he?

You keep coming back for more. So here it is.

Andrew Johnson became president following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Johnson issued a proclamation of pardon and amnesty to citizens in the South who would take an oath of allegiance.

As part of the pardon process, lands confiscated during the war would be returned to white landowners. So while the Radical Republicans had fully intended for there to be a massive redistribution of land from former slave owners to former slaves under Reconstruction, Johnson's policy effectively thwarted that.

It has been estimated to approximately 40,000 former slaves received grants of land under Sherman's order. But the land was taken away from them.

Denied the opportunity to own their own small farms, most former slaves were forced to live under the system of sharecropping.

Life as a sharecropper generally meant living in poverty. And sharecropping would have been a bitter disappointment to people who once believed they could become independent farmers.

She makes more on books and speeches
