Who was the ignoramus at Abercrombie that gave this reason for not hiring her? Were there no other applicants? I don't see how the Supreme Court can uphold this decision if nobody gave this reason for refusing to hire her, or they selected somebody else. We will be seeing more cases like this. Those who don't want to make cakes for gay weddings are catching hell in the courts, but the Muslims are winning their war. Freedom of religion is not free when it is rammed down the throats of everyone else.
Like I'm going to respect what a wealthy, out of touch with reality celebrity like Cher has to say. These people only relate to other wealthy, out of touch with reality people like Obama. Scott Walker is the only candidate to the "grass roots" person most of us have been longing for. Is he perfect? Absolutely not. Perfection will not exist in any of the candidates. And to be criticized for refusing to answer a question about evolution is idiotic. What does that have to do with the Presidency? There are important issues at hand and I don't care if Scott Walker is a Christian, or what most of his beliefs are......I only care about what he plans to do about the mess created by our prior leaders.
I would like a list of the people who thinks it is perfectly fine to perform abortions after 20 weeks. I want to do what I can to make sure those same people do not have a voice in this process. Who in their right mind thinks abortion after a baby is fully formed and capable of feeling pain is acceptable?
Why are the people who are most critical of the actions of soldiers during a war always someone who has never been involved in a war? They are ignorant fools. I was married to a 3-time Vietnam War veteran and from Mei Lei to the end of the war I heard about atrocities that were committed by the enemy. Yet, those soldiers who fought in that war were spit on and persecuted by civilians who had no part whatsoever in those horrors of war. Far as I'm concerned, none of us has the right to criticized what our soldiers are ordered to do in a war as, to put it simply, we were not there.
So, how much war time has Mr. Moore served? NOBODY, if they have never fought in a war has any right whatsoever to criticize those who did for how they fought. Just ask any Vietnam vet who can tell of the horrors like little children being strapped with bombs for the sole purpose of blowing up GI's. Ask about the hidden ground bombs, the snipers, and many other horrors that happens in nearly every war. Mr. Moore and others like him who have not "walked the walk" need to keep their opinions to themselves and show respect for any veteran who served in a war.
Every country in the world should draw their lines in the sand in order to put the radical Islamists, and other religions in their place. While we enjoy our right to freedom of religion, we do not have a right to impose our beliefs on others. Our freedom of religion does not give us the right to violate existing laws, or the right to hold religious members hostage to their religion. We have allowed groups like the Amish to practice their beliefs but their people volunteer to live that particular life. However, young people who choose to leave pay a heavy price to do so. The obnoxious behavior of the Westboro Baptist Church was reigned in only slightly in an effort to stop them from disturbing the funerals of military members. Radical Islamists are the most dangerous of the religions at this time and our government needs to set some strict guidelines for all religions that will not be accepted and if violations occur, the offenders will either be heavily fined, or they would be jailed. Freedom of religion is a privilege and a right, but, unfortunately, like any other right, the abusers force us to take action to not only protect our rights, but keep others from abusing them. The government needs to make this a priority as the radicals are working in every country in an attempt to control every government. I pray to God that somebody has the intelligence to see what is happening and put a stop to it before it reaches us on a more personal level.
As a Christian, I feel this teacher was out of line but did not deserve to be fired. Suppose a Mormon was handing out the Book of Mormon at school? Or a Jew was handing out the Torah? A Muslim giving out the Quran? And so it goes with our freedom of religion. We have no choice but to share this liberty with all religions which is why religion needs to be kept out of schools. There are some solutions but I doubt our leaders have enough common sense to accept any suggestion that lowly people like us may impose.
First of all, define "rape" an "sexual assaut". These terms are being thrown around loosely and irresponsily not just in colleges but in the military as well. I cannot fathom how it is that a man and woman are partying, get drunk and/or high, have sex, then when they sober up the man is accused of rape. The excuse is that the woman was too drunk to consent to sex. However, the man was also drunk but he is held fully responsible. I have three daughters and one son, seven granddaughters and two grandsons. Naturally I would not want my girls raped or sexually assaulted but even more, I don't want any of my boy unfairly accused by a woman who does not want to take any responsibility for her own actions. Laws regarding rape and sexual assault are in dire need of being reformed so everyone involved are treated fairly.
I am disgusted that many prominent blacks (like Al Sharpton) refuse to accept the facts of this case. I'll be the first one to concede that some cops are too quick to use their guns but then, I'm not walking in their shoes when it happens. But I find it even more irritating that those who continue to call this a racist issue absolutely refuse to address the issue that police face a hostile and disrespectful public (like Michael Brown) who refuse to obey orders. Why aren't these facts being addressed? Why aren't young people taught to simply obey police officer orders? All Michael Brown had to do was get out of the street like he was ordered to do by Officer Wilson. But nobody wants to address his bad behavior which resulted in his death.

I've long been a fan of other black folks like Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and many others too numerous to mention. Why aren't the intelligent, educated ones like yourself given more attention? I believe you have clearly stated some of the reasons for this and it's because our government is deliberately trying to hide the intelligent blacks choosing to focus on the thugs because that serves their ultimate purpose. Thanks Mr. Jackson for such a well written article. Now, I'm one of your fans too.
