Take a break from Jesus for six months and take a remedial English class. You are in desperate need of one, because a bag of rocks that "has Jesus" is still a bag of rocks.
yeah but that bag of rocks that has Jesus is a saved rock!!!!!!!!!! Even with Jesus we are all still sinners but we have grace and a future.

Hmmmmm....
Well, best I can tell is that sadly, Michael Kincheloe seems to be a hater.
BOY, but there are a GLUT of haters around these days! Worst of all, haters are rarely convinced to try loving instead of hating because hating gives one a false sense of power (which is their root motivation)

Please Michael, put the hate down and give love a try! PLEASE?!

Well Miss Dickinson, Are you naive or what? Being from Dickinson, I probably know you and you probably know quite a few individuals there that have gone to TC! O yeah, including myself, n i went voluntarily. Other then forming a relationship with God there, it was the biggest waste of time in my life! I spent more days in the kidco factory working 8hrs a day sometimes 3 times a week. Thank God I had money going in too. Those that did come in with nothing, were left with pretty much nothing including hygiene products. Clothing wise-you might as well have gone around in your skivvies because there were no clothes there for you. With all this money TC makes with us going around every weekend performing like dancing penguins and helping in the community and working at kidco and being forced to donate our time to other areas without having a choice; you would think that they might be able to afford to supply the students with better supplies than which they have on skid-row. Now lets go back here for a sec, now tell me how all those people you know are doing? Because I can guarantee you they are either in prison, are going to prison, or are dead...and I can verify that because more than 75% the people I was in there with are either in prison, going to prison, or are dead.
You want to talk about a Christian facility, how "Christian-like" is it to kick a person out on the streets in the middle of winter on a Sunday morning with nothing but a back pack of clothes and no money beings the student accounts cannot be accessed on the weekend. Then when he comes back to pick up his stuff half of it has been stolen or lost. Yeah that's the great almighty TEEN CHALLENGE OF NORTH DAKOTA!!!!!!!!!! I bet that makes you so proud to know of that?!?!? And my favorite was why our program director wasn't coming to work every day, found out why when I saw her walking out of the liquor store with a bottle and later to come find out that she was in TC because she is a binge drinker. The bad thing is the one good staff member that was there, got so fed up with the crap there he decided to quit because it was....ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!! For the time we spend at TC for a whole 365 days, with 24 hours in a day we spent 1 HOUR in class!!!! Thank God I was fortunate enough that I had another individual help me with Bible studies outside of the class, otherwise I wouldn't have come to know God the way I thought I was going to, because Teen Challenge has an obscure vision of how God wants his people to be helped. They only want to help themselves to your pocket book and that's it. 1500$ A MONTH IS WHAT IT COST TO BE INVOLVED THERE!
Finally every single thing that comes into Teen Challenge is donated, from food to furniture and everything in between. Food being outdated, sanitary items broken open, and furniture that my dog wouldn't even sleep on. Now honestly I got a pretty good idea how much money we would make each weekend and we got paid 8-10$ an hour per student at kidco (that went to TC) and all the money donated, can you tell me that it's not about the money?!?!?!?

The real concern here isn't about people being haters, it's that they were blessed with the brains and eyes to see and understand what's really going on... Let me ask you these two questions: Have you personally had any dealings with TC on the inside? Have you always had faith and religion (love) in your life?
