As a devout follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am offended by the hate coming from those who claimRead More to be follower of the Lord Jesus Christ toward our fellow human beings who happen to be a non-believer. The Lord Jesus Christ said, let those without sin cast the first stone. I doubt any of you who judge atheists harshly are without sin. As a natural-born American, I am offended by a number of our fellow Americans willing strip away the right of certain Americans because of their lack o religious beliefs. Religious freedom do not belong to the Christians alone, but to all in America. I not only pray that woman not only win her lawsuit against the State of New Jersey, I also pray that she also be reimbursed for her legal fees and all other fees she paid out to make the case, and perhaps receive treble damage.

In most jurisdictions you are denied any plate y nges at coukd cause others to become agitated. IRead More suspect she would also be denied a "GOD-IS-REAL" plate on similar grounds. But atheists need to evangelize incessantly to all within earshot so I expect this case will continue, aided by the Godless ACLU and its allies.

If Jesus has, in fact, risen, then He's not kosher for Passover.

Absoutely!... Mahler's Resurrection Symphony (No 2): a deep. spiritual journeythat ends in trueRead More heaven... and composed by a Jew (this is my take as one, sorry)
jMichael April 20, 2014 at 08:59 am
Good one, Leslie. No one should let this day pass without sounding this symphony throughout hisRead More home. It is my understanding, however, that "The Resurrection" compassed by Mahler is not that of Jesus of Nazareth, but rather of us... The vision of our resurrection to the afterlife. It is not an affirmation of Christianity but of a sacred Humanity. If I am wrong about this please correct me. Regards, jMichael

". . . we find their tactics to reflect badly upon them and ultimately marginalize theirRead More overall mission." Personally, I would hope that a Purple Line solution might be found that better preserves the Capital Crescent Trail. But as one who has attempted to use my rights under the Maryland Public Information Act (PIA) -- the state equivalent of the Federal Freedom of Information Act -- in the past, I think it is ridiculous to accuse ACT of objectionable tactics when they seek access to what may be public information under the PIA. Doing so is not a "distraction" -- but is the at the core of open government. ACT is a an interest group reflecting the views of some citizens who are availing themselves of their right to free assembly and to petition government under the First Amendment. There is nothing going on here that is as sinister as the Mayor portrays it.

It was warm, welcoming, loving, kind, giving, and yes, awesome!! Isn't that an important messageRead More that the church should give. Oh my goodness, he did it so very well.

What should change about Maryland's taxes? Candidates for governor sound off after General Assembly wraps up 2014 session. (Credit: Tinley Park Patch)
Roger April 19, 2014 at 03:30 pm
Why is it the wealthy think they are special and deserve to pay a lower tax rate by hiringRead More lobbyists to write tax code words that hide (shelter is the perverted definition) income from taxation? To dodge taxes. So unchristian.

Why has god forsaken such an adherent follower, such as this faith-driven organization?

Harold - you might be thinking of Hobby Lobby. Unfortunately I shopped at the Michael's in FrederickRead More during that time period. Again...

Perhaps it was a failed circumcision/ bungee jump?

A federal judge sentenced Mohammad Hassan Khalid of Ellicott City to five years in prison for aiding a group of people who were planning terror attacks in Europe. File|Patch
Steven Spiegel April 19, 2014 at 07:16 am
I heard it all associating with the terrorist group was like a video game . This young man should beRead More sentenced for the same amount of time as the rest . Know he can get out of prison with a bad taste in his mouth and blow up some Americans . After 911 there should be no deals made with terrorists .
Bryan Harz April 19, 2014 at 09:06 am
Hopefully he gets deported back to Pakistan after he gets out of jail.

Please liberate us from our oppressive State government, cyber warriors!!!
Don O'Neill April 18, 2014 at 05:24 pm
It sounds as though Senator Catherine Pugh is pining for a job in the private sector. Here is whatRead More she said: 1. “Our government doesn’t move as quickly as the private sector ... and the private sector isn’t moving as quickly as it should be,” Sen. Catherine Pugh, D-Baltimore, said in an interview. 2. “I look at the government from the perspective of a business,” Pugh said. “... What do want the state to look like three years from now? I don’t think we do enough of that kind of thinking and planning.” Let me identify some of the issues that Senator Catherine Pugh and her colleagues in Annapolis should be thinking about on behalf of the citizens of Maryland. 1. Stop pretending that Maryland is the leader in state Health Care web sites. 2. Stop pretending that Maryland is the center of excellence for Cyber Security. 3. Stop pretending that the Chesapeake Bay is clean. 4. Stop pretending that Maryland's soft position on marijuana is supported by its citizens. 5. Stop contemplating the use of fracking. 6. Stop wasting time and money on Bond Bill earmarks. 7. Stop sweeping the Baltimore City prison scandal under the rug. 8. Stop pretending that Maryland is winning the jobs race with Virginia. 9. Stop pretending that Maryland has an adult candidate for Governor. 10. Stop pretending that Governor O'Malley is viable candidate for President.

Igor April 19, 2014 at 07:18 pm
I love the people who have nothing to add to the conversation so they throw either Obama or gunRead More control in. Either subject are worth debating at another time. But this conversation has nothing to do with either.
