And speaking of American Exceptionalism, I congratulate the exceptional people who have made it possible that so far, almost 7 million people have signed up for the Affordable Care Act.
As for the people who have made it their agenda to block millions of uninsured Americans from obtaining insurance and affordable health care...suck it.
Conservative, here ya go, more fodder for you and alprova to debate over, LOL. Seems the disciples even debated whether Jesus was God.
hey dignity, beware that creeping theocracy! bwahahaha
You betcha. And you keep your eyes out for that evil secular humanism.
Oh, and guard yourself against logic and reasoning. It might confuse you.
Geez, conservative really seems hung up on religion lately, carrying it over from several toons. Strange how a book that many claim to be self evident has spawned so many different interpretations. Does not seem to support conservative's claim that their is no contradictions in the Bible.
Thank goodness I have escaped the bondage of religious beliefs. I refuse to prostate myself to a deity that has endorsed rape, murder, and enslavement of my fellow man. I reject a doctrine that because a person does not subscribe to a certain belief, he will be tortured for eternity.
I do not need the dogma of religion to show me the benefits of tolerance and treating my fellow man as I would wish to be treated. I will continue to support reason and logic in my life, and reject the belief that life's answers can all be found in a book written by bronze age nomads.
I will fight all attempts to move us to a theistic government under the guise that America is a "Christian Nation". I will continue to support the separation of Church and State by understanding the history of what befalls a nation who would persecute others who fail to follow their orthodoxy.
I do not need superstition to live a full and fruitful life.
Orr, please explain to me why your inerrant Bible and your God endorses murder, rape, and enslavement? Simple question.
March 25, 2014 at 6:36 a.m Since you claim you do not have the space to explain the New Orleans voucher system and why it should be a model, can you at least post the most recent performance results from the program?
fairmon, 'Voucher schools for all except special needs children'.
So, pray tell how that would work? What if "all" the parents wanted to take the voucher and send their kids to X public school?
Might have a little problem of overcrowding don't you think?
But hey, people with vouchers could send their kids to Baylor or perhaps Boyd Buchanan, right?
A few problems there also. Again, not enough capacity for the amount of people who would like to send their vouchered children to those schools.
Oh, and how many people could afford the tuition verses the amount of the voucher?
And then you add in the fact that private schools like the above are under no obligation to accept anyone unless they meet their admission standards.
So tell us how you would implement "Voucher schools for all except special needs children"?
"What would Jesus do?" This quote always seems to make our professed Christian GOP politicians uncomfortable.
Perhaps they thinly perceive their hypocrisy when they vote to cut funding for programs that help the needy.
Robin, you and the GOP preach about a lack of accountability in our education system while your party has shown a historic lack of action to address the problems of the nation.
Your party stands on the sidelines hurling spitballs without offering any meaningful solutions regarding healthcare, poverty, or job creation.
How about some policies that will benefit all Americans instead of the narrow few supported by the GOP? How about some of that accountability you endlessly preach about?
"This particular scourge upon society has destroyed past civilizations that indulged in it..."
What, Sodom and Gomorrah? Wasn't that the place where the angels stayed at Lot's house and the locals wanted the "have their way" with them? Lot, in his wisdom, offered his virgin daughters to them instead?
Tell me Mr. Wall, how many civilizations have been destroyed in the name of your God? Do you consider that as an "abomination"?
Of course you don't, because it has always been acceptable in the Bible to persecute anyone who differs from you. Rape, pillage, murder, and enslavement? No problem, right?
