Stereotype much?


Sometimes. The one about how Christian conservatives don't get jokes is my favorite.

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

A cafe is a place where coffee snobs go to order bewilderingly complex concoctions and sip them while writing screenplays on their MacBooks. The Piano was written in a cafe. A shop is more accessible to the layman, but is still an acceptable place to work on a script for a B movie. Sharknado 12 was ...

Re: Texas Church Shooting

Seems like some things merit being pointed out: 1) The shooter had a documented history of serious mental illness, and had been previously hospitalized, apparently involuntarily. 2) The shooter had spent time in military prison for beating his wife and nearly killing his stepson, who was a toddler a...

I can only assume that Abe is gunning for a chance to write Sideshow Don's memoirs.

Re: Hillary, Bernie and the Russians

I wasn't being pedantic, Rick. When a conservative calls the Dems the Democrat Party it's frequently a deliberate insult. Here's a bit of background: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democrat_Party_(epithet) Granted, Phil might not have intended it that way, but there are others here who do. It's irr...

Re: Hillary, Bernie and the Russians

First off, Phil, it's the Democratic Party. Calling it The Democrat Party is stupid and petty. It's an excellent example of how screwed up our political dialogue has gotten, as well as an easy opportunity to behave like one of the adults in the room. As far as the rest of it goes, who knows. The Dem...

Mr. Bowling said Manafort so I'm going to go with Flynn, just to keep things interesting. Ultimately I think it will end up being both of them.

Re: Hypocrisy

Gonna go ahead and reply as best I can. My kids broke my computer a couple weeks back, so I'm trying to keep up on a smart phone. I'm too old to do that. I have to push back on your comments regarding people hating the police because of a few bad actors on the force. The notion that the whole left, ...

Re: Hypocrisy

The poster thing didn't say that all Christians were hypocrites. Basically it just says that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Check your own lifestyle before you start looking at your neighbor with a critical eye. So yeah, I agree that it's a bad idea to paint with too broad a brush, a...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

I'm not a Christian, and I see now reason that one cannot simultaneously smoke, gamble, and be a good person and a productive member of society. That said, if you don't like the life you're living then yeah, you obviously need to make some changes. As far as you being a coward, I think you need to l...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

Experienced as a member of the community, or as an attendee of the concert or a passer-by or something? Either way, that must have been terrifying and heart breaking. I know it sounds trite, but that's awful and I'm glad you're okay. And in the defense of everyone you've previously spoken to, that's...

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

Rape and pedophiia are crimes. Yes. Until humanity decides they aren't. That's the problem. I don't get the hand-wringing. Pedophilia was legal, normal, and socially acceptable for most of human history. I assume that that's why the Bible doesn't bother to condemn it or establish an age of consent....

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

Fair enough, Nessa, although to be clear I don't believe in sin. Homosexuality is not a crime, and there's nothing wrong with a homosexual relationship between consenting adults. Rape and pedophilia are crimes. They do damage. Putting all three in the same category is incorrect and frankly dangerous...
