censorship is a real sign of totalitarianism and is not the practice of only the progressives. national review a magazine that proclaims itself conservative practices viewpoint discrimination on its website. it censors people because of their views. of course its rules deny that, but I am sure I am not the only one who has seen national reviews totalitarian tendencies.
I would believe you are sincere james2517 and that yyour delaration that the war on Christmas concept is completely ridiculous if you would personally finance the legal costs of opposing those who would restrict the free exercise of religion that is guaranteed in the u.s. constitution. once you agree to do that, because obviously a ridiculous war has NO COSTS and thus it would cost YOU NOTHING (that is if your comment is correct or even makes sense).
when judges rule against religions' being recognized in government facilities and by government agencies, how is that considered making no laws against the free exercise of religion. are not those judges making laws against people who want to exercise their religious rights?

Jesus taught that He did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. Jesus said that He would not and did not change even the smallest letter of the law. those two factors must be included in any analysis or criticism of the jewish laws and rituals in existence at the time of Jesus. very rarely is painting with a broad brush correct or useful.

doubts are inevitable. how we handle the doubts is what is important.

not only did Jesus accept death on the cross for us, He raised Himself from the dead to demonstrate to us that He, Jesus, was indeed triumphant over dead. He, Jesus, was the Lord of Life and death was subjected to Him, not He to death. so, again, Jesus offers us everything. the skeptics offer us what? Jesus give us His empty tomb as a profound reason to place our faith and trust in Him. what do the skeptics offer you to reject Jesus and join them in their skepticism?

there were people who knew and spoke to Jesus in the flesh over two thousand years ago who were very similar to today's skeptics some of whom have posted here today. I would urge everyone to compare the message of Christ to the message(s) of these skeptics. Jesus offers, to anyone who believes in Him, the gift of the forgiveness of their sins and eternal life with Him and the Holy Trinity. Jesus offers hope in a world full of pain and suffering. Jesus offers Divine Love in a world where love is often an afterthought. what do the skeptics offer. it is difficult to be certain, but it is safe to say they reject what Jesus offers to them. if the skeptics offer forgiveness, of what value is it to us who have sinned, not against the skeptics, against Perfect Being. if the skeptics offer eternal life, how do they propose to give it to us. if the skeptics offer hope, we are forced to ask them hope in what and hope for what. if the skeptics offer love, we wonder what they mean by love since they reject Jesus' sacrifice of His life on the Cross out of His LOVE for us. so, while every human being has the power to reject Jesus and what He offers them, rejecting Jesus also rejects His mercy on us, rejecting Jesus also rejects the promise of eternal life, rejecting Jesus also rejects the hope and love He offers to all of us. so, while it is quite simple to reject and ridicule those who place their faith in Jesus (after all, rejecting Jesus requires no thought, no knowledge and no understanding, it is totally a negation of what Jesus brought in to the world), what do they offer to replace the Gospel of Jesus. when you encounter someone who ridicules your faith in Jesus, it is quite acceptable and honorable to ask them what they have to replace the faith, hope and love you have found in Jesus. it is right and proper to ask them how do they propose you have your sins forgiven and how do they propose you gain heaven. some of the skeptics profess atheism which essentially is the belief that only physical reality exists. to these types of skeptics it is perfectly acceptable to ask of them, if all is physical then what is love? it is acceptable to ask them what is truth? it is acceptable to ask them why they place their faith in their own finite intelligence rather than to place their faith in He who so loved them He suffered death on a cross to demonstrate what He meant by love. He obviously did not consider love a physical thing.

even more bizarre than this idea that those who think differently than me should be ostracized and punished is the idea that parents and medical doctors should follow the advice of six year old children when they say they want to be a member of the opposite sex. where the correct response to such an expression by a child is to ignore it and re-direct the child to more wholesome ideas, these ignorant adults, parents included, instead go, oh, we must respect the six year old's concepts even though we are totally convinced the child is not competent enough to be allowed to cross the street on his or her own. those are the kind of people in control of America. I fear such idiocy will not end until we hit bottom as a society.

there would be no reason for discrimination if people who dwell on sexual perversions in their minds did not insist on going public with them. since people can control what they think and say, people enslaved to sexually perverse thoughts and desires do not have to reveal them publicly, or even privately for that matter. it is more that a little nuts for people to encourage others to reveal publicly their most shameful thoughts and desires. when adults encourage pre-pubescent children to engage in sexual thoughts of any type, perverse or natural, it is simply and without question sexual abuse of a child. I do not care if it is the potusa, the local school superintendent or the richest man in the world, putting sexual thoughts in to the heads of pre-pubescent children is unadulterated sexual child abuse.
how many students start but drop out of government run high schools? how many graduates of government run high schools require remedial education before they can pass regular college courses? the percentages are out there to be reviewed. should we just disregard the actual results of government run education?
can anyone tell me where I can find analysis of the following question? if CO2 acts to trap heat from leaving the earth's atmosphere, why does not it also act to shelter the earth's atmosphere from heat entering it from space?
