Kimble is absolutely correct. This cannot be a one-day movement; it needs to go all over the state and the country. The message is clear: Children need to stop having children until they have the means to properly raise their off-springs in a two-parent, engaged family with caring and discipline. Rev. Simon needs to tell the young men in his congregation to pull up their pants, keep their zippers up, drop the drugs, get a job and become contributing members of our society. Until then, expect to be controlled by Columbus because the purpose of the YCSD is to educate children and it has not been getting done for quite some time now. But that is just my opinion based on reality.

cambridge,No, I wear Under-Armour (great stuff!!!) and love shrimp and bacon! I'm not Orthodox Jew but I am a Roman Catholic and we don't adhere to Jewish dietary and household laws. But, those rules, laid out thousands of years ago were meant to preserve the Jewish people and it served them well with the limited knowledge they had at the time. Once again, under the legal, religious and moral definition of marriage that has existed for thousands of years, any man, normal or homosexual, can marry any woman, normal or homosexual and vice versa. And, please show where, in the US Constitution, the words "separation of church and state" can be found! Do you know who first used the expression and for what reason, for it is instructive and fascinating? Seems to me it says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...". This means no state religion, like the Church of England, and no law can prohibit me from worshiping God, or any voodoo nonsense, how I desire.
As kurtw aptly points out, the Liberal Project wants to destroy this nation and all that makes it great. They have done it by destroying the nuclear family.

"He without sin cast the first stone."
Yes, the Bible passage that some want to use to permit immoral and unethical behavior. Jesus said this to the crowd of men holding stones in their hands as the Mosaic prescription of punishment for adultery or prostitution was stoning. Jesus knew that they were trying to trick him and he refused to answer. As they pressed him on the law, he came up with the quote "let he who is without sin, cast the first stone". He knew that it was the same men that used the woman as a prostitute, thus making her a sinner. So, he turned it back on them. After the crowd dispersed, Jesus asked her who was accusing her and she said "no one". He told her that he would also not accuse her and then admonished her to "Go, and sin no more!"
Plenty of other Holy Scriptures talk about sinful living and the need to avoid it because we will all be judged as sinners. So, if you want to use this quote, throw out our judicial system and prisons because no man can judge another. Not practical! We are all charged with obeying the law, man's and God's, and we are all expected to live moral and ethical lives. Yes, please, if your daughter is raped by a vicious thug, please do not judge the man and let him go without paying for his crime.

Here is the problem with the Federal budget. With the tens of flights that leave YNG weekly, I'm not sure how this is justified. But, hey, the money is coming to the Valley and the politicians can smack themselves on the back for being masters. In the meantime, I will rattle my brains over the potholes in the highways.

Jerry,You see the issue clearly for what it is. In reading the opinion on the Supreme Court website, I was struck how the majority based their decision on emotion and feelings while the minority in descent based their decision on laws. Justice Scalia's opinion was typically harsh but Justice Thomas's opinion was extremely well written and appropriate on the law. We are a nation of laws and liberty is based in law...or, it once was.

They always did have equal rights. Under the definition of marriage (one man and one woman for the propagation of the human species), states granted licenses for any man, straight or homosexual, to marry a woman, straight or homosexual. Now, since the court has decided to redefine marriage through fiat, what happens when one man wants to marry two women? Change the definition? What happens when a man wants to marry his first cousin or, even more ridiculous, his sister? Yes we know the problems inbreeding can bring but what if they love one another and it doesn't affect me? Yes, the institution of marriage has served humankind well for thousands of years. But, I guess I must change with the times.

States are legalizing pot but 18 year old young ADULTS can't have a beer or a glass of wine? Go to work, go to war, get sued, go to an adult prison if you commit a crime, get married to your gay lover but don't have a drink.

What happened to peggy's post? Nothing in it was vulgar. It was actually quite beautiful, as borylie said, but could be quite upsetting for lesbians that believe that they can provide a father's love to a child regardless of how burly they may be. Satan, the subtle deceiver that he is, has his hooks deep into society and is dragging souls into his grasp.

I agree with southsidedave on this one. Refusing to market the battle flag is not going to change the thinking of those who reasonably believed "separate but equal" was acceptable and that Jim Crow laws were constitutional. They didn't start flying the flag there until the abolishment of segregation became such a hot topic and the "uppity-Niggra's" began resisting the unfairness. The flag doesn't belong on government grounds but Billy Bob should fly the flag if that is where his heart is.
