He cannot wear a or display a lanyard he kept keys on because it was imprinted with the Christian fish symbol.
Someone may get offended.
They would probably be much more offended at my response to their offense, because now, I’m offended too.
No one cares more about immigration reform and migrant rights than I do.
Having said that, and having proven it at no small cost… if our flag offends you, go somewhere else where you don’t have to see it.
If any display of faith offends you, follow the ones that have flag issues.
I don’t consider myself a nationalist or even a “patriot”…but this is ridiculous.
One of the reasons you came here in the first place was to enjoy the liberty to be who you were created to be and to think and speak freely and safely.
If that freedom now offends you, feel free to go somewhere it doesn’t exist…but don’t try and take it from us.
My hope is that at some point the state will understand that the job of the school is education, not to to be some sort of social mill turning out vacuous clones of some ideal, faithless, non offensive, drone.
They should see the T-shirt I’d like to send him to school in now…
Bad language alert…if swear words offend you, stop reading now.
There is a big dust up over on the “Naked Pastors” Facebook page.
The ex wife of a well known “emergent” pastor and writer is telling the story of her (alleged) abuse at his hands.
The thing that caught my attention was that the word was (allegedly) spread by his equally well known peers that this woman was “batshit crazy”.
( I have to say “allegedly” because the Christians are already getting lawyered up).
I first heard this phrase in a pastors meeting and I think I heard it almost every week in those meetings.
Since that time almost three decades ago, I still hear that phrase when a woman is speaking up about abuses in the home.
There is a systemic devaluation of women in the culture of American evangelicalism…and it’s a far bigger spiritual problem than anything the gays can throw at us.
Hypocrisy isn’t just a a religious problem.
The national media is up in arms demanding that the NFL police the character and morals of it’s players.
I suppose that’s fine, if the players union and the league come to agreements about such policies.
I wonder though why the media isn’t as up in arms about the music that many of these players listen to and is the backbeat of the popular culture.
I had my son give me the names of the five most popular songs on his peers iPods in the seventh grade…then I looked up the lyrics to those songs.
The result was a collection of the most sexist, misogynistic, violent, filth imaginable.
That filth is being pumped into 12 year old brains through $300.00 headphones.
That’s what they listen to at recess.
But the flag offends them…
Back to my cave.
