Ten Commandments display bill clears House panel March 27, 2015 at 4:28 p.m.

This is a terrible bill that Asa must veto. Separation of church and state is fundamental to the exercise of religious freedom.

Hey jumped - "What is the applicants employment history and education?" All were essentially the same. "Is it relevant to the open position?" Yes. "Are they on time to the interview, are they prepared, how do they respond to the interview questions?" Yes, yes, and all scored in the same percentile." "Are they dressed appropriately?" Yes. Nevertheless the racist, sexist, homophobe hired the lesbian over the heterosexuals. How could that have happened, jumped?
.
"Maybe the racist bigot could just do her job and hire the best candidate?" Not gonna happen because she's a racist, sexist, homophobe. "Maybe that person meets someone different and decides to change their worldview?" Maybe. But that would be after the fact to this scenario. "How about they all kiss?" OK my me. "How about Godzilla attacks and eats everyone applying for the job?" Is Godzilla a carnivore?
.
"And where in the anti-discrimination laws does it show that white people are excluded?" Where does it show they are protected? Point, game, set, match, I win.
.
Hey armnar - Sexual identity is no more chosen than the color of a person's eyes.
.
Hey Slak - Better be careful as you are beginning to put the pieces together. For what purpose are we having this debate? Is marriage a lifestyle choice? Why is it constitutional to define marriage as a union between one man/woman and one woman/man but unconstitutional to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman? At what point does a person's right to exercise reasonable religious freedom and be afforded protections to do so conflict with another person's "right" to any particular lifestyle choice?
.
And armnar, didn't you once say your significant other chose to live a heterosexual lifestyle before he chose to live a homosexual lifestyle? Did he wake up one morning straight and the next morning gay? Point, game, set, match, I win, as usual.

Hey jumped - Ding, ding, ding, you got it. The interviewer was a racist, sexist, homophobe and a heterosexual black female who hired the black lesbian and racially discriminated against the white folks. Why didn't the homophobic interviewer refuse to hire the lesbian? Yep, you got it jumped. The circumstances of this scenario are limitless and illustrates the folly in equating any particular lifestyle choice with the civil rights. And if you start making up comparable stories and scenarios, make sure their foundation is state sanctioning and forced acceptance. As to my dead horse, a better analogy would be a Triple Crown winner, a Secretariat perhaps.

Discrimination law concern of NCAA March 27, 2015 at 10:29 a.m.

"For more than twenty years, the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act has never undermined our nation's anti-discrimination laws, and this law will not do so in Indiana either,". As truth be told.
.
Kudos to governor Pence for standing tall against political correctness and uncommon pressure to recognize the importance of the exercise of reasonable and responsible religious freedom in America. The US Constitution is clear in its reverence for religious freedom, but not so much on sexual orientations like those who prefer to have sex with dead people or little kids. Mark Emmert should be much more concerned about how the NCAA abuses "amateur" athletes for financial gain. But that's not politically incorrect, at least not yet.

House panel OKs drug testing for benefits bill March 27, 2015 at 10:08 a.m.

It never ceases to amaze the lengths libs will go to avoid even the most modest attempts at personal responsibility. As a taxpayer, whatever this costs it is well worth it. Why in the world do libs so detest the concept of individuals being held accountable for their own actions?

Abortion-notice bill sent to Hutchinson March 27, 2015 at 10:03 a.m.

Hey Bear - Better a legislator shoot themselves in the foot than an unborn child be shot in the head, don't you think?

Hey sanity - So, you admit GBLQers are bullies and it is somehow justified because they may or may not have been bullied themselves something in the past, as if two wrongs make a right. Nice.
.
Hey arkteacher - You nailed it. The goal of GBLTQers is to force acceptance of their various and varied lifestyle choices with all else being collateral damage.
.
Hey Pop - Notice how your good friend armnar calls me a bully while hurling slurs (Prickman). SMH. Regarding people being treated differently, where is your compassion for the small business owner put into bankruptcy by GBLTQ bullying? Regarding gays being treated as equal members of the community, would you mind, Pop, explaining how the gay/lesbian woman in the scenario I provided earlier was treated unequally?
.
Hey Slak - I'll buy a dozen in XL.
.
Hey 23 - Would you mind explaining how the gay/lesbian in the scenario I gave was victimized? Or was it the heterosexuals that were victimized?

Sides tussle on renewal of kids' health insurance March 26, 2015 at 5:06 p.m.

Hey Whipper - FSM wants the lady that now takes the photo for your driver's license at the state revenue office to be the one to decide if you really need an appendectomy. THAT's single payer.
.
Hey Pop - Bless your heart, you accuse someone else of being smug while bragging about paying "ten times the taxes" they pay each year. If Whip owns a bunch of highly taxed real estate, for example, your smugness will be profound.

And sanitynow continues the bullying: "will find Arkansas to be the backward, biased, uneducated, insular, fundamentalist, intolerant backwater". And speaking of hypocrisy, sanity, GBLTQers just will not tolerate intolerance. You good with that?
.
Hey Pop - Not sure if you noticed, but those Duck Dynasty folks are raking in millions as they exercise their religious freedom, as is Chik-Fil-A as is Hobby Lobby, etc., etc., etc. People are slowly but surely tiring of the GBLTQ bullying and recognizing the importance of the exercise of reasonable religious freedoms to America. Backward? Not so much.

Hey armnar - Your ad hominem attack in lieu of rebuttal mired in critical thought is quite telling. Quite telling indeed. Point, game, set, match, I win, again. You do win, however, at name calling ("sheer ignorance"..."obsessive anger issues".... You continually prove my point about GBLTQ bullying, armnar, with your mean-spirited responses. Thanks.
.
Hey hah - Look down, hah, as the proof is between your legs, or not. As to what goes on in any particular person's mind, how might that be proven? And people do in fact choose their sexual orientation most frequently. How else to explain the B and T part of the GBLTQ equation?
.
Hey JJ - Bless your heart, you are giving our good friend armnar a run for his/her money with ad hominem attacks ("ignorant to the point of blindness", "bigotry", "to many of that stripe", "like whack-a-mole"). And it is most interesting you mention diversity while impugning diversity of thought. Yep, GBLTQers just will not tolerate intolerance.
.
So, is sexual orientation toward corpses protected as a civil right in the opinion of the GBLTQers?
