she makes a case for evolution...
sounds like gross man is not in school today, working from mommy's basement again.
Not for me! I don't smoke it but my 80 year old mother is suffering from severe arthritis. If I thought it would help her, even a little, I'm all for it. Same goes for my neighbor who is watching her mother waste away from cancer and won't eat. I've heard the appetite will increase even for chemo patients. So, in the past I was 100% against. When it touches you personally, you tend to rethink your position.
Agreed. I've been saying this too. Where was the non-stop media coverage when that was going on?

I too, have watched family go left. Not my brother, he is more to the right than I am. However, cousins have abandoned their conservative upbringing, some after only a year in college. Tech schools are the same, the union mentality of "stick it to the man" prevailed when I attended. Some cousins rarely speak to us and are shrill and angry when they do. The difference for me, I believe, was the first 10 years of my education was in a parochial school. The other was, 2 parents that involved us in the political process. Taking us with them to vote, involving us in the letters they wrote to our Governor, Senators and House members. Pride in our country and why it was such a big deal to immigrate to the US generations ago. This was taught at an early age and was a great foundation, something missing from many these days.
I am so sorry that the family had to go through this fight. At the same time, I am proud that they took a stand. As Christians, we have to stand up for Jesus. These things will get more and more common as time goes on. Time to decide if you aren't with him yet.
