Re: “You read it here first: Focus has Super Bowl TV ad with Tebow

To brotherjonah2 - You are incredibly ignorant about Focus On The Family.

1. Dr. Dobson is NOT a pastor, deacon, interpreter, nor prophet.
2. Focus On The Family is not a church. FOF would encourage tithing to one's local church.
3. As a former employee I can tell you that all prayer requests and correspondences were kept intact, not thrown away as you have alleged. This ridiculous notion impugned the integrity of the dedicated Christians - your brothers and sisters in Christ - who open mail and handle, with great care, the donations made to the organization.

This whole comment stream is typical of the childish, shadowy drivel that has plagued Focus and Colorado Springs since 1992.

Re: “A Bible thumping

"Overcome evil with good." Seems to apply to both sides of the fence on this one.

Re: “Culture worrier

And Aurora, I want to make clear that I am NOT in favor of killing babies. I am in favor of providing a choice for women involved in unwanted pregnancy.

You said: The issue isn't which policy for unwanted babies to adopt. Good people in a sane, humane society can consider, debate, and decide on all sorts of options.

You also spoke of our nation as a "good-hearted and self-sacrificial country."

Now, put on your Statesman hat and provide a viable option for the young women and their babies. And remember that as a Statesman one must make provisions for people who are not cut from the same spiritual cloth as you.

Otherwise ... conservative/idea = oxymoron.

Re: “Culture worrier

To Aurora:

Labels, to me, are irrelevant. Leftist? It's fair to say I am to the left of you. It's also fair to describe myself as a "heretic", which literally translated means "one who thinks differently."

Again, I repeat, I'm sure there is much to expose in the abortion industry. Abuse and corruption ought to always be exposed, especially where public funding is involved. The intent of abortion legalization was to protect the lives of unwed girls and offer them a clinical alternative.

OK, Aurora, here's your chance ... earlier I said "conservative idea" is an oxymoron. So you can now prove me wrong.

Let's say your party is now in power. Abortion laws are repealed. Girls are pregnant with unwanted babies. Red girls, white girls, black girls, yellow girls. Atheist girls, buddhist girls, Christian girls, Muslim girls, agnostic girls. What does your party propose to do with the babies and how will you fund your program?

Re: “Culture worrier

Aurora, you're in grave danger when you refute legislative intent with the resultant flaws and hypocrisies in the system 36 years later. Using your logic we could turn the spotlight to our local churches, supposed sanctuaries of morality and transformation. Yet they too are dens of filth filled with child molesters and homosexuals. In my opinion the greatest hypocrisy of all is to say one follows The Great Healer, quote Fox News more often than The Gospel, and politically support the proliferation of unjustified conflicts and mayhem in the name of America. Supposedly, Christians are not "of this world." But Christian is now synonymous with Republican which is synonymous with business as usual.

Re: “One nation under FOX

@antisi

As a Colorado Springs native and having worked all my life in the local economy I can say on behalf of the working poor here that $40K a year would be a wonderful sum. Thus the incentive for young men to get on the government bandwagon, spurred by high-dollar ads which romanticize military life.

And you're right; not many people in America die for lack of healthcare. Dying is not what concerns me. I have worked in the financial sector and have seen many instances of bankruptcy due to unforseen medical disasters -- even among those who have employer-provided plans. It's faster to recover physically from a head-on collision than it is to recover financially. Wouldn't you agree that one's quality of life would be greatly diminished if one were saddled with a couple hundred thousand dollars of medical debt?
