Couldn't have said it better than you did with that last comment amy2go. Of course the christianRead More will discount your relationship because you're a sinner and sinners are demon haunted or whatever Pat Robertson is espousing these days. That's one of the main problems with this "religion" called christianity. They've had 3,000 years to come up with every possible counter argument. For free thinkers, well, up until the advent of the internet in the early 1990s, free thinkers were in the closet because of a long and storied history of "Christians" burning them alive, chopping their heads off, or at the very least making their lives as miserable as possible so that they (free thinkers) had to stay in the closet to exist. Sort of exactly the same thing that "christians" did to gay people until recently as well.

jMichael Q3 Please refer to the copy of the Ten Commandments that is in the Supreme Court Building.Read More This country was founded on a Judeo/Christian world view, please refer to the Declaration of Independence. Q4. As you well know the US Constitution only deals with the Federal Government. To that point lying, cheating, stealing and killing are not mentioned either and they are considered sin. Q5. There was no debate in Massacusetts, plus an attempt to get the state legislature into a Constitutional Convention precisely for the reason of creating an amendment to clearly define marriage was continously thwarted. For the record the chief justice of the Mass Supreme court was activist in the gay rights movement and in favor of gay marriage. That fact alone should have required her to recuse herself from the case. Hers was the deciding vote. Later an attempt by the Good people of Massachusetts to put the question of gay marriage on the ballot was thwarted by the governor himself despite the fact that the initiative received more than double the required signatures. So no the public has been shut out from this debate.

@ Chris P > When churches and religious organizations start paying taxes, then you *might* haveRead More an argument. But, they don't. So, there's that.

Finally, a return (even if just for one day) of what Patch used to be. I subscribed to Patch backRead More when it started because it used to be so upbeat, positive and focused on local news (most of which was good news). In the past year, and in my observation, Patch seems to have been taken in by the "sensationalism" that comes with "bad news". Hey, I know where to find the "bad news"! Why not try to keep Patch upbeat and positive like it used to be?

Just a bit of feedback. I became interested in your patch site a while back because it was a greatRead More place for local stories. I never see that anymore... Everything is regional now. I can get that easier and better from AJC or GDP. Please go back to focusing on Dacula.

The Holy Bible I read does not support the statement of JMichael. Guess that person has not read itRead More all from Genesis to Revelations, The Old Testament does have over 800 laws. The New Testament which presents the first (& second-final") coming of Jesus Christ

shows The Lord Jesus Christ teaching and uplifting women. men are told to love their wives even asRead More Jesus Christ loves the church. Am sick of people blaming The Holy Bible i.e. God Almighty and His Only Begotten Son Jesus for warped thinking. The Holy Bible, in its entirety, shows that The Lord Jesus Christ defends women. Look at the women Jesus defends. Not giving the chapter , book etc because I think one should read the whole Bible, and find the truth. Had to get thst said before commenting on the article by that person without any sense. Of course he should be with his wife when she gives birth to their child. Of course he should put the family before the job. I hope he takes the day off on his childs birthday, next year. He probably works to support his family. It is irrelevant the occupation.
