    The world they grow up into will not always be just their group.
    Oh they'll mingle like all hell right about when puberty kicks in. Then you have to pry them apart with a stick.

    Like the NRA who lashes out at the supposed dangers of gun free zones but then holds some of their events in actual gun free zones.

    How's that?

    They werent "lashing out", they were correctly pointing out the fact that mass shooters are known to target gun free zones.

    When someone like the President of the United States speaks at an NRA event, yea, it becomes a gun free zone. Thats the Secret Service deciding that.

    Anyway, what about the Obama administration defending the National Day of Prayer in court against your buddies at Freedom From Religion? It just kills you that the Obamas are Christians and that's hilarious.
    That’s like saying “standing in a garage makes you a car”. It didn’t work for Obama and the Grahams knew it

    No. It's not the "Secret Service deciding that". That's a cop-out. The NRA believes it's okay to suspend the second amendment rights they hold so dear in exchange for a speaker? If they want to take their beliefs seriously, then don't invite the president to speak. But that's not the point. They also hold some of their events, events when the president isn't attending, in venues that don't allow guns. Why? Why don't they schedule events only in venues that line up with their supposed values if that's what's REALLY important to them? Because it isn't really. They're okay with safe spaces and suddenly gun free zones aren't dangerous, they'll even seek them out, when it works for them.

    The media is filled with safe spaces. MSNBC is a safe space for liberals just as Fox News is a safe space for conservatives.

    How about Charlottesville? Where the blame for the discord was placed on the counter protesters and the alt-right was demanding a place where they could show up and protest without being confronted like that? Guess what? That's a safe space they were wanting.

    And really there were no bigger safe spaces in 2016 than Donald Trump rallies. Where the leader would stand in front of his cult and ask or even demand that those not there supporting him be removed from the venue, if not by security then by his supporters, egging them on. Why the safe space demand, Donald?

    There's safe space proponents right here at PH too. We had a recent crackdown on the word bigot. You can't call someone a bigot anymore. Even though a "bigot" is a real thing. There are bigots in the world. If you put forth bigotry, you're a bigot. But PH is a safe space where bigots are protected from being labeled what they are. That's okay though. If that's where leadership wants to take the forum, hey they're the ones in charge. But they also shouldn't deny that's what it is and why it was done.

    But, go on pretending that those mocking safe spaces don't demand some for themselves.

    LOL... the Grahams. Turn their backs on actual Christians like the Obamas but then pretend they hadn't been calling Mitt Romney a cult member their entire lives just for one election cycle.

    Hilarious.

    So... anything yet on how you feel about the Obama administration defending the National Day of Prayer in court and winning? You should be thankful, without them maybe that holiday wouldn't even exist anymore.

    I love how it bugs you so much that the Obamas are Christians.

What the board, or whatever you call it at the organization formerly known as the Boyscotts did, is wait for the Mormon members not to be present to vote on the Gay issue to push it through. They did it again with the girl membership. After the second event, the Mormons decided that since the organization could care less about its opinion, then it shouldn't be entitled to its money. This information came to me from a Mormon Bishop on Thursday. He is a top executive in a company I work with often.

    Let the Mormons start their own scouting group. Then the boys could each have 3 or 4 girls to camp out with.

    I guess they're not the radicals you would portray them as.
