While I am on the subject, how often do 'bad calls' happen in football? And what is the accepted norm for the opposing teams when this happens? Are they expected to accept the referees opinion, respectfully, knowing that sometimes it is for them, and sometimes against them? Is that what sportsmanship dictates? I expect bad and good calls do happen, but how often? i expect all teams get each. It seemed grossly unfair that M.O. even came up with this as an issue, like he thought it was so clever of him, trying to hoist the Christians on their own petard. Take THAT away from him, and you win this hands down.
PS: I am not a football fan and do not watch this sport, but if there is some major problem of referees not seeing what happened, that is a problem with the referees. It would seem the issues are pretty cut and dried, the lines are clearly marked, dropped footballs are visible, 'unnecessary roughness' has to be pretty obvious. So it seemed to me that MO's whole 'shouldn't they tell on themselves' issue was a giant RED HERRING, designed to assume this happens all the time and Christian athletes are letting it slide in order to win. I question that assumption. I wished, Hugh, that you had called him on that. Is this a real problem in football: Refs who make stupid calls? Then that should have been addressed, since it is the REFS job.
I read the transcript, and feel Oppenheimer looked for a weapon to use against the belief of Christian athletes and coaches that they are doing t heir best to honor Christ in this sport. This is ALWAYS the goal of those who go after Christians. Referees are hired, trained, and paid to call the results of the plays. Just as it is unsportsmanlike for players or coaches to complain when the call goes against them, it would be foolish of them to do the refs job and 'tell on themselves.' It is not in the rules that players must tell on themselves, so how can MO insist that they should? The game would descend into chaos and silliness if they did so.

A Petty Decision by Obama

Everything Obama does seems designed to stick his dirty demonic thumb in the eye of decent people. Every headline of what he is doing is an assault. He seems to be relishing that he 'won' and can do whatever the he** he wants and no one can stop him. He is truly the vilest piece of garbage to ever walk in the halls of power in this nation. He is demon possessed and evil to the core.
You are so right. Obama always sounds like a robot with a canned speech even when he is lauded as this time for 'expressing emotion.' What emotion? The governor, the priest, the sheriff, all of these showed real emotion even in the movement of eyebrows and cheek muscles. Obama's face moves only to get the mouth open, and the lips moving. He NEVER changes expression except when you see him celebrating his own greatness, or being smug because he 'won.'
7. tasers for the teacher which he/she has been trained to use to take down such a shooter the minute he walks through the classroom door.
No, he didn't mention the names of the unborn babies, nor did he mention that he gains demonic power from each tiny human sacrifice, since he supports it and makes it continue. What a hypocrite he is.
We need to arm ourselves to protect the vulnerable from these mentally ill demon possessed people who would harm us. How can anyone be so foolish as to believe the best way to protect ourselves is to take away guns from the lawful citizens? If that principle had even a taser to run into the hallway with the end of this might have been entirely different. Gun control will not protect us from lunatics. Gun training is the best possibility. Obama is not our friend.

Your 'fellow conservatives'? You must be a paid troll. How else could you find so much time to waste posting idiotic after idiotic post here which have nothing to do with the subject of the article. Please die and enlarge hell.
Is this the man whose wife hung herself in their barn a while back?
Yes, Barry stood in front of the UN pretending to be the 'American' president, and stated that 'the future does not belong to those who insult the prophet of Islam.' Oh yes it does, Barry. The future belongs to the biggest insult to Islam ever, the Son of God, born as a Jew, who died for those who would believe in Him, who will come to rule and reign from Jerusalem. But for Barry to make that statement, which is an insult to the nation and every Jew or Christian within it, was most curious. More curious was the non press coverage that weird blasphemy received.
