I judged it as brilliant because I'm glad she's not going. Hope she voted for Obama, because he's likely the reason! You get what you voted for, folks! Wait til you go on Obamacare, you only have yourselves to thank. Just wish you weren't dragging down the rest of us.

There was a case where one school did the Islam prayer service over the intercom system to pacify the few muslims in that school. Amidst the outrage were calls for "tolerance."

Yet you support sex education, GAY sex education, starting at kindergarten? And all laws regarding the "age of consent" should also be banned? Children of any age are mature enough to make decisions about sex, just so long as they're not "indoctrinated" with anything that might involve a religion? Well, Christianity, anyway. Islam, Judaism, Wiccan, and any other religion is just fine.... We're trying to teach our children about sex and gayness. Christianity shouldn't be getting in the way!
IF that happened it was illegal. Unless yanno it was a private religious school. HOWEVER, you are fullofshit. Prove it.

The pledge of allegiance has not been banned.

Don't presume to tell me what I favor. You don't know me. You are however right that IMO Christianity...AND ALL OTHER RELIGIONS shouldn't get in the way of life. IMO (ymmv) they are all based on fear, ignorance, and prejudice.

Yeah I keep up on it. I just laid in a hundred pounds of Halal meat the other day. I cook for people during Ramadan so....
The mosque over here by me is really small. Except for the sign out front no one would even know it's a mosque. The husband goes there. He says lots of people that go there are pretty poor. Not poor like me poor, but way poor, so I make food for Ramadan (mostly chicken, rice, salads, and msemen) and regularly scour the pantry for stuff to send over there.
Making a difference that I can see instead of just anonymous donations. <shrug>
That's very christian of you.

I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist making the joke. But really, you are doing a nice thing by helping.

And what is msemen?

LOL ppl at the pho shop are wondering why I'm laughing.

Madmen is just a (Moroccan style) flat bread. Like tortillas, naan, etc., just really really GOOD (better) when made by hand.

And here I thought they were based on faith and belief.

"More and more people care about religious tolerance as fewer and fewer care about religion."

"There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things."

"My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind."

Couldn't resist:

Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.

Paraphrasing a good quote I read today:

Get a man who believes in one god to explain to you how he came to reject all the other gods, and maybe he'll understand how I came to reject his specific god.

Don't you know by now, if ONE school administrator makes a silly decision to not say the pledge, that automatically equates to "THE PLEDGE HAS BEEN BANNED! THE PLEDGE HAS BEEN BANNED!THE PLEDGE HAS BEEN BANNED!"

If ONE republican candidate who loses his election says a woman's reproductive organs shut down during a [email protected], means ALL Republicans feel this way. Dare I get started on the comments your liberal leaders have made?...

Joe Biden on culturalism: "In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

Barack Obama: "I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go?"

John Kerry on the troops: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

Congressman Hank Johnson on Guam: "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize"

Rosie O'Donnell: "Don't fear the terrorists. They're mothers and fathers."

Barack Obama on a tornado that killed twelve people: "In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died - an entire town destroyed"

Biden on the economy: "The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S."

The late great Mike Royko made his journalistic name by covering City Hall in Chicago and reporting Richard J Daley (Daley I) verbatim. It resulted in the gripe (write what I mean , not what I say"

Everyone who speaks in public flubs it. Everyone, no exceptions. The guys in IN and MO who lost their elections did not flub remarks, they spoke what they believed . It was their beliefs and opinions that got them in trouble with the electorate, not a dumb tongue flub.

Rape is kinda like the weather. If it’s inevitable, relax and enjoy it.
Clayton Williams (R), 1990 candidate for Texas governor

I can do better than that. When WOMEN got the right to vote is when it all went downhill. Because that’s when votes started being cast with emotion and uh, maternal instincts that government ought to reflect…
Rush Limbaugh, in response to a caller who said that young people voting was a problem

I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.
Mitt Romney, bragging in 2007 about his family’s record on civil rights. Romney later admitted he didn’t technically see his father march with King, nor did his father ever march with the civil rights leader on the same day or in the same city.

ITA. If you're going to take things Dems said that sound stupid, not well thought out (like Biden remarks), or just mis-speaks (like Obama's 57 states thing), then have ufn while we pull out 8 years of Bushisms. I can't hold those things against public figures too harshly -- they're put on the spot with a microphone.

i think Dubya was the worst president we ever had. An idiot. A horrible politician. A failed businessman.

BUT: I also believe he was a good baseball team owner (I read a book by a long-time baseball coach and he gave examples of good and bad owners, and bush was VERY good).

And of all the living presidents, while I think Clinton is very smart and interesting, I think Bush would be the best one to have a beer with (if he weren't a recovered alcoholic).
