    What Romany said goes far beyond just blacks. The whole country is subversive to big media because we have the attention span of terrier on a caffeine binge. That's why I rolled my eyes when all these celebrities twitted about the outcome of the trial. None of them bothered to watch a single second of the trial, yet all felt it necessary to say what a travesty the non-guilty verdict was.

    The real tragedy is that Trevon Martin was raised in an environment where he felt it perfectly alright to try to attack a stranger.
    This is a novel I was asked to proofread. The author is giving 10% of the profits to kidney research, which is a big deal in the Darb household. Fair warning; it's a fantasy novel, and the main characters are lesbians. It's three bucks on kindle from Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/WINDOWS-BROKEN...ken+fairy+tale

    What the President said is fucking despicable.

    He basically said that it's okay for black people to be pissed about this because, basically everyone is racist towards black people and that's why Zimmerman thought Trayvon was suspicious.


    Per usual, the great unifier is picking sides and giving fuel to the riots/rallies instead of calming them down. Fuck him, no good worthless piece of shit.

    My point was that just because someone claims to speak for a group of people doesn't mean said group are behind them.

    It's the "vocal minority" that always gets the press.

    What's going to sell more papers: A Christian like me who says, "Eh, gays can do whatever they want" or supposed christian like Phelps saying "We're all going to hell because those two men kissed!"

    Nice message.

    I particularly like this sentence:

    Instead of rewarding kids for memorization, we’d reward them for independent and critical thinking.

    I've been saying this for years. Our education system is totally messed up, and this is just one of many reasons.

    Exactly. In my area, there are numerous Episcopal churches flying rainbow flags and posting messages of support for the gay community. They don't make the news, it's the ones making a ruckus that make the news.

    George helped rescued a family of four from an overturned truck, according to multiple news outlets.

    Bush's "no child left behind" act was a terrible idea and should've been repelled after the first year. Our last two presidents have passed huge, over-reaching laws that have completely screwed the people they were supposed to be helping.

    It's good to hear things like this, but I also hope at some point, he reaches out to Martin's family and personally expresses his remorse at what happened to Trayvon. He may not be found guilty of any crime, but his brother said he's remorseful that it had to end in Trayvon's death, and to me at least, it would go a long way to showing that he's sincere about that.

    Maybe he did before the trial and I missed it?

    He tried, and not that I blame the family but I don't think the apology was accepted.

    Christians shouldn't judge non-Christians in this manner. Phelps, like me, is still sinning. So are homosexuals. Whatever Phelps sins are they are no better than gay sex, but Phelps is the one who claims to be a Christian and thus should be worrying about the plank in his own eye instead of the speck in some other's eye.

    We should expect non-believers to commit sins, Christians do! We should be worrying about the sin going on with our fellow Christians and be calling them out on that and not living out the Gospel, such as caring for the poor, etc. I wonder when the last time Phelps was on an AIDS mission trip in Africa?
