remember the part of our constitution that no public office holder should be put to a religious test? just because people practiced unconstitutional policies in no way means they were in conflict with the way our nation was constructed.
States had established churches until the 1820s, Mass into 1830s.

in order to win, a conservative candidate needs to be skillful enough to acknowledge these people and then avoid the subject as much as possible.....
both Reagan and Bush were very good at this, neither identified as anti-abortion crusaders....
an overtly religious candidate like Santorum or Huckabee is dead at the starting line....
It's a matter of opinion. To extend a hand to the religious among us, makes good sense. If they are avoided or the subject equivocated, that candidate will be dead at the starting line. We don't have to win Democrats, we have to motivate conservatives.

Terri Schiavo was already dead Carol, but her body didn't know it. The autopsy showed that her brain had deteriorated to the point where there was no cognitive function left. She was in no pain and there was no "agonizing" death.
I just hope that if the same thing were to happen to me my family would do the right thing and let me go rather than have to linger in a vegetative state.

We seldom agree on anything but your above post is spot on. As a father who had to okay the pulling of the plug I have felt the pain.

A Christian's God through the teachings of Jesus Christ's message doesn't tell us to behead people and kill innocents who are non-Christians.
Man's craving for power stood behind the name of Christianity in the past but that's not - nor ever has been - the true message. The fruits of their spirit identifies them.
But think we've talked about this enough.
Let's stick to the reasons we're on this forum and answer this question. Are you denying Obama's poll numbers are dropping dramatically?
Nobody is very happy about a lot of things right now...
A little perspective...Obama's polling is on Mount Everest compared to GOP Congress, or the GOP in general. Check it out for a reality check.

Sebelius has the power she has because Congress gave it to her in the ACA.
The Supreme Court said the EPA can regulate greenhouse gases.
You & this "bypass Congress" crap is just that crap. The President has certain powers.
Since your precious Republicans don't give a sh*t about anything except masturbating their dumbass base, someone has to do something.
Quit your f*cking whining & tell your whiney party to put this country first for a change.
"Maybe"? I said no such thing. Should I have said, "'When' costs become prohibitive"?
Obamacare gave her the power. Democrats shoved Obamacare on America, despite overwhelming opposition by Republicans and Americans as a whole. Your eagerness to bow to the Gods Of Government is disgusting. "Someone had to do something." ?? Are you shitting me? Who might that be, you and the liberal elites? Kiss my ass.

Yes,

Where does it ask you on a resume how you voted during an election.....

Universities are supposed to be diverse...that's the scientific process...
If Universities attract only like minded thinking people where is the diversity?

so...

If a scientist/researcher is worried that the topics he/she writes on will affect FUTURE employment we have a HUGE diversity problem..

And we know what Progressives do when they have a DIVERSITY problem and it involves Conservatives...

Don't you?

It's hard for me to pick one. Saw the amazing touchdown in the last playoffs so sort of rooting for the Seahawks. But I like both birds (seahawks) and horses (broncos) so it might have to come down to the color of their uniforms...which is how I usually pick a team when seeing a random game on television. But at least I'm watching the game. The only one all year. But will probably root for the Seahawks.
Don't forget to watch O'Reilly's interview with Obama at 4:30 today, I believe.
The interview where Obama is interrupted by Bill-o 47 times?

It also seems interesting to me that God may have tried to give us a clue about how to love and forgive each other more than once throughout ancient history.
Was Horus's message to ancient Egyptians about love and forgiveness? Just curious. Because that's pretty important if we want to believe God is about love and forgiveness.
The Roman Empire had become so cruel and immoral, perhaps Jesus may have been sent at the right time and his message and claims the most believable.
Life's mysteries seem neverending...but just points to our own morality as being finite and our self-importance rather insignificant. It would seem.
Keep guessing son.

Excuse me, your hood is showing...

So diversity is tied to a certain segment of the US population or political philosophy?

Is that what you are saying? That's racist holmes...

universities stress diversity....does DIVERSITY not APPLY when hiring faculty?

"This collective diversity among institutions is one of the great strengths of America's higher education system, and has helped make it the best in the world. Preserving that diversity is essential if we hope to serve the needs of our democratic society. "
