Sep 7th 2012 11:04AM Well the Bible says not to make graven images or to bow down before them or worship them etc. It doesn't specifically say to bury or not in the ground. St. Joseph was not a saint, he was Jesus' earthly father, a carpenter, you could call him Jesus' stepfather and all glory goes to God. Joseph was made a saint hundreds of years after his time. I know of a church where people found some bones and they were being cured of diseases, getting money, etc. so when the church came to investigate, they were dog bones from the 1700s. Hmmmm Saint BowWow?
Jul 9th 2012 11:36AM You make some valid points, but there is something also called common sense. The man lied to the city saying he was building a game room when he was in fact building a church. There wasn't adequate parking for the cars of the people who were coming to his Bible studies and if there are too many people in too small of a space and could be problems if a fire broke out, then that's government doing the right thing. Looking out for people. Nothing wrong with having a Bible study. He should have rented a building somewhere with adequate exits and adequate parking.
Apr 12th 2012 12:48PM Hmmmm I don't see anyone screaming about freedom when a deadbeat dad is told to pay up or else can't get a driver's license or passport. It's ok for him not to get it, but it's ok for people who don't pay taxes to get away with it? It's the same as all of this security stuff, if you have done nothing wrong then you won't be on a no-fly list or have to worry. Same with this. Only people who might have to worry are those who owe a lot of tax money. This way they can't just up and take their money and not contribute to the country they are living in. W wanted to do this too but the problem was there were so many Republican tax cheats that the GOP didn't want to alienate them cause they were paying for their re-election. So is this taking away my freedom? NOPE. Yours? Nope, only if you don't pay taxes....
Apr 12th 2012 12:44PM Let's see. People don't say one word when deadbeat dads who don't pay child support can't get driver's licenses or any other benefits. I gusss it's ok for tax cheats to just up and leave huh? If you pay your taxes you have nothing to worry about. So it's not restricting my freedom or yours. Same with all of this security stuff, if you haven't done anything wrong you have nothing to worry about either.
Jun 20th 2011 5:47PM He's how old? 51 and she's 16? And one of her parents approved of it? Are they somehow related? Maybe he's one her parent's relatives, or else there is some history of mental illness. She's young enough to be his daughter and quite possibly even a grand-daughter, something isn't right here. I am sure that in a couple of years when he needs Cialis or Viagra to do the deed, or else he's tired of her being carded everytime they go into a bar, she can't even go into a casino at her age, and they let her get married in Vegas? Nope something isn't right here.
Jun 7th 2011 11:14AM Although I never have cared for Couric as a journalist, I definitely would never watch Fox News, I mean their so called journalists invent news, make up stuff, worse than the main networks do. I don't watch Katie anyway but at least she did tell the truth about Palin and Jacka** Trump.
Jun 6th 2011 3:44PM Actually some of these comments are so stupid I cannot believe it. Circumcision can be reversed by stretching the skin, a friend of mine is a doctor and said that it can be done. So there goes that b.s. comment. OK then we baptize babies to save them from going to hell if they die, based on an original sin committed in the Bible thousands of years ago, and actually it wasn't a sin. Adam and Eve were told to be fruitful and multiply but couldn't until they ate of the fruit. They were told not to eat of the fruit but they were told to have kids and had to, so God knew they would do it, that's why he allowed the devil into the Garden of Eden. Anyway enough about this, Jews and Muslims do circumcise their children to remind them of a covenant between man and god. Studies are showing the "unclipped" men are more prone to venereal and other STDs. If parents choose to do it, then that's their business, if not then we need to stop baptizing babies, forcing children to go to catholic schools and christian schools, and it would go on and on and on. I am so tired of other people telling me what I should and should not do, and I thank God my kids are grown up, both boys were "clipped' not for religious reasons and have had no problems with it. So people go and worry about more important things.
Jun 5th 2011 5:19PM Kingston and Zuma? Did she visit Jamaica or Canada one time and fall in love with those Kingstons? Or was she a fan of the videogame Zuma which consists of little balls? Gwen, I don't know what you were on when you named your two beautiful sons, but like your song "What ya waitin, what ya waitin, what ya waitin for?" Run down to the birth registration office and tell them that you are sorry for naming your kids that and that you'd want to change them, but then again you might decide on Fort Lauderale and Pinocchle.... Girl you lost it.
May 31st 2011 10:40AM In The Toronto Star article whick originally printed the story, it said HIS brother Jazz, so in the article it gave away the gender. Personally I think that the children are going to be totally screwed up, until at least they get to public school (I hope to God they don't homeschool) then they will interact with other kids and find out quickly that boys usually don't wear pink, they don't wear dresses and they don't have girl's hairstyles. Maybe these parents wanted daughters and ended up with sons. Come on now, how can little children know totally on their own what they want. There is always parental influence. How did Jazz know he wanted to wear a pink dress? Hmmmm and did mommy buy him one? Unless these little children can also make their own minds up about using their parent's credit cards? Or did mom give Jazz cash and said buy your own dress? Now I would like to ask the parents what's going to happen whe Jazz gets into High School and wants to wear that pink frilly dress with those high heels?
May 26th 2011 9:56PM Well if the child is too young to "do the time for the crime" then it's the parent's responsibility. I mean the child is a product of his home environment, it's not the school's, the church's or anybody else's responsibility. And to say that the child will always think that he can blame somebody else for his actions? Not when he turns 12 or 16 or whatever age they are going to start treating kids as adults. If the parents are neglectful, well I am sure they will smarten up if they have to start paying fines or else spend a night or two in the slammer.There are kids now killing their parents with their guns (then again only a moron would keep a gun in a house with small children) or murdering their neighbor or friends or stealing. Society is falling apart, and some parents personally shouldn't be allowed to have kids, but this is America! Anybody can reproduce, whether you are capable of raising the child or not. If not, then you better learn quick!
