...ball me out for even THINKING about bringing a non-Jew to our event. While I don't have a problem with groups that want to to hold "closed" events, I have to wonder if... 1) ...the youth group allowed non-members to participate that were Jewish? (Even if they were adults?) 2) ...the retreat was ...

Just to give another example of "reverse discrimination" that I found distasteful enough to break from Organized Jewish Faith many years ago.... My temple's youth group was planning a ski trip retreat. I was talking about it at public school with a friend who was also a member of our youth group. A ...

So, lesse, a Jewish religious symbol is ok...but Christians have to make do with the Christmas tree, which the Supreme Court has determined to be a 'secular symbol' (in actuality, it's a pagan symbol originally) because a Nativity Scene is 'too strong an image'. ...I'm reminded again of the NYC sch...

"New Year's Revelers Must Stock Up Early" Many states still have Sunday "blue laws" that restrict the sale of alcohol on the Sabbath at liquor stores and supermarkets. ...

Brock:

Thank you VERY much for that clear outline of the definition of a Christian. I appreciate the bullet format, which makes it much easier for me understand.

I have saved that post for future study. Thanks again!

This change in topic (Jack Chick, Keroac, etc.) reminds me of something that causes me a great deal of confusion. You have someone vocal claiming that, as a Christian, you must believe so-and-so. And then you get other people stating that he is not a true Christian, and that we really need to belive...

Mark Twain once said: "It is strange the way the ignorant and inexperienced so often and so undeservedly succeed when the informed and the experienced fail."

I disagree with several points RHJunior made, and I respectfully object to his accusation that I am a bigot. However, this is his forum, and I don't wish to be banned, so I'll let him say whatever he wishes. Chronic, though.... :twisted: I talk about nobody rounding up Christians by the boatload and...

Yeah, I know, I was making a point. Namely, that you're being rather selective in the religion you choose to bash, AND that you're forced to dig back centuries for enough material to justify that bashing. First of all, I'm not BASHING anyone. The topic had been about why any group of people would b...

Calbeck, I think we may be miscommunicating, or at least, hearing each other on different wavelengths. First, we have freedom of religion and speech in this country. Legally, yes. At least, until the religious right gets a few more people elected to office.... And while my comment on the "shackles o...

Hi! Long time reader, first time poster.... I need to join another forum like I need another hole in the head, but I couldn't pass this one up....

Re: Synthetic Diamonds

It's a bit silly that something that's newer, prettier and more durable would have less value than something that's older and natural. I just find the irony irresistably silly. :) Scott I believe it was Mark Twain who once said: "There are two kinds of fools: those who say 'This is old, and therefo...

Such a NICE couple...

Between the 1/22 and the 1/24 strips, I've noticed something "neat" about Jack and Jenny's relationship. She argues with everything he says! "I'm average." "No, you're not." "Yeah, that's an accurate portrayl of Americans..." "No, it's not." You'd think they were married already!!! :roll: (I love my...

To "level" with you, I agree -- the events of 9/11 should not be laid on the President's head. However, the economy WAS tanking even before hand, I recall.

BTW: I noticed RH hasn't posted lately. Did we scare him off, or was he just trolling for a reaction, and I stepped in it?

PS. As long as I'm going on about stuff that's under the hood, I'll mention that Jenny was born in Alberta, Canada where her Aunt Liska lives in a strange nudist colony, but her family skulk moved to Hawaii soon afterward to start Bali Hai Aviation. :P Scott (Trivial details R' Us) Kellogg Kewl!

Worryingly, I find this far funnier than the original. Perhaps it's that it struck me afresh, while (though you might not credit it) I was thinking about the original for some time.

Chivalry ain't dead, it's just ... different

At great risk to life, the universe, and everything else, Scott managed to get today's (1/20) strip up. I love Galore's confusion about Jack carrying Jenny's bag. In fact, her body language is priceless, as she tries to figure out why a male is doing manual labor...for a female, no less! The ears do...

My last post on this issue: Although I lean toward what you call the "liberal leftist movement" (although, sir, by your frothing rant, Charlton Heston and Ronnie Reagan would be comparative flaming liberals), I consider myself a middle-of-the-road person when it comes to (yuck) politics. I'll actual...
