Puerto Rico denies gays right to adopt children

Romans 1: 24-32. It's pretty clear that this type of lifestyle is contrary to God's Law.

Watch Nights mark Emancipation Proclamation 150th

Actually, Lincoln had no authority over the Southern States, as they had seceded and formed their own government. Technically the proclamation had no teeth since the Federal government had no jurisdiction in the South. It was window dressing on Lincoln's part to try to gain support for the war.

Trio of burglars arrested after turning into A-C officer's driveway

@grove600: I think the LT was talking about seemingly insignificant suspicious activity relating to possible criminal activity, not a habitual Yanni listener.

Deal signs McKillip's abortion bill

It is amazing to me that these so called enlightened individuals are much more narrow-minded, hate-filled, and unwilling to see the plank in their own eye than those they accuse of being that way.

Deal signs McKillip's abortion bill

It is amazing that some people think that being progressive is being allowed (with government protection) to kill innocent children. That is barbaric in the worst sense of the word. Our country continues to slide into the pit as our government continues to legislate immorality. No civilization has ever survived that turned a blind eye to and encouraged and mandated immoral behavior.

Atlanta march planned in memory of Trayvon Martin

"A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony."
Don't change the law that is designed to protect citizens from attack. A terrible tragedy in Florida, yes, but it is like cutting your nose off to spite your face if they want the law changed because of an isolated incident.

Let the liberals support all the illegals and other entitlement recipients. Then maybe they will feel better about themselves and leave the rest of us alone.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
