    So here is a question. How many teachers have been suspended for voicing support for gay marriage? It seems there is quite the double standard.
    Public schools are required to be EEOC compliant. That means they cannot discriminate against religious beliefs. He would be able to sue.

    Problem is of course, the EEOC also says one cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation. So what happens when one belief contradicts another? He'll win easily I think. Even the ACLU might defend him (a big if I know). He has the right to express an opinion, and he was not discriminating against anyone. The school is.

    "Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good." Ezek 16:49-50.

    "Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?" Jer 5:9

    "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, O LORD; that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah" Ps 9:17-20

    Exactly. .... and what about that part that says "freedom of speech".

    Seems to me, there is only freedom of speech if you say the right words.

    I'm pretty sure that in a perfect world this would be true. However "gay" [sic] is the holy grail of society right now. You can even call anyone you like whatever you like ... just don't say anything against the homosexual community. That is virtually treason.

    How did we come this far?

    24 August 2013 - I've decided to take a break from a number of internet forums, including this one, for my own reasons.
    I expect to be back at some time in the future, although at present don't know when that will be.
    I've been here just a few days shy of six years, and those six years have been greatly blessed.

    Another prophecy coming to pass in our midst.

    "PREACH THE WORD, in season and out...reprove, rebuke, and exhort with all patience and doctrine; for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine...but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers telling them what they WANT to hear...." (2Tim.4:2)

    Yup, I'd say that's about spot on.

    Exactly how many yarns does a yuan buy?

    ECONOMIC COLLAPSE in the US we are on the leading edge of the biggest economic collapse ever seen in the history of America. DECOUPLING OF THE DOLLAR as a world reserve currency soon to be replaced by a new currency sponsored by the BRIC nations. ASSANATION OF OBAMA by the pupet masters manipulating his strings and typing in his teleprompter. Much energy has been invested to make his presidency the most racially charged. RACE WAR / CIVIL WAR in the USA. The formation of a global Islamic califate to be headed up by a muslim false prophet and Beast. Just a good guess looking at the way the wind is blowing. As for natural disasters I will put my chips on an earthquake along the San Andreas so big that the entire city ofSan Francisco will vanish. For the volcano department I am going to go with that little volcanic chain in the eastern atlantic an eruption will sheer off a flank off the island causing a massive wave that will destroy mast cities on the imediate eastern seaboard. A possible eruption of the Yellowstone calderea as well. As an observation America has lost favor with God having unrepentantly turned against Him. - - - - Dravenhawk

    Re: Speculation on what's next.

    There is a perfect storm brewing over the USA containing the following elements of ECONOMIC DECAY. (a.) Economic collapse, (b.) Decoupling of the dollar as a reserve currency (c.) National default on the Federal debt. (d.) excessive taxation (e.) Coal fired power plant closures. Economically the federal reserve is out of bullets. The fed has cut interest rates to near zereo and has diluted the dollar with two rounds of quantative easing hence the 30% some odd plus increase in food and gas prices. So what are they going to do when the next big suck out hits the DOW? Another round of quantative easing will send a message to global markets that the dollar is in big doo doo and could spark a massive run on the dollar as panic stricen countries move to dump dollars ahead of a potential news release concerning the dollar. dethronig as a world reserve currency. Once the dollar is decoupled inflation will be so bad that paper currency will be utterly worthless overnight. As for the federal govt debt the federal govt will go bust at the current rate of spending in less than 3 years and thats optomistically speaking. As the depression deepens the ranks of taxpayers gets smaller in direct proportion to the swelling ranks of the unemployed which in turn get on SSI or welfare replete with free section 8 rent and foodstamps. The more pepole that make this transition from makers to takers the faster default will accelerate. Starting in 2012 the Owe-bummer administration via EPA edict will begin the process of shutting down 40% of the nations coal fired electricity generation making electricity "rates necessarily skyrocket". As the dollar decays and inflation runs out of control those on the dole will find their meager pittance dwindle away and demand more from a govt who is flat broke and thats when the riots start from an entitlement minded populace. - - - - Dravenhawk

    "Hate" speech is already in the process of being outlawed. Soon, Christian values will be deemed "hate speech."

    I wonder if what Maxine Waters said about tea party members going straight to hell could be classified as hate speach? Nothin like that liberal love to make a tea party guy feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    With the way his ratings are falling like a stone, it looks like the part of the plan is already well underway.

    Were it not so serious, this would sound almost poetic.

    Something economists often neglect to say or to take into consideration.

    A Jewish business partner I had once said: "There is only on thing you need to know about business -- in and out. So long as you have more money coming in than out you're OK. The moment you spend more than you make, you're going bankrupt".

    Simple analogy but it's true for business and it's true for a country.

    (b.) Decoupling of the dollar as a reserve currency (c.) National default on the Federal debt. (d.) excessive taxation
    This I get and completely agree.

    I was going to ask how you arrived at "d" then took a look for myself. My goodness! What are they doing!

    Here are some references I found:

    One Source

    The EPA is currently working on other proposed guidelines that will likely force the closure of numerous coal plants in the near future. These standards include limiting mercury pollution, reducing carbon dioxide emissions and regulating coal ash, a toxic by-product of coal-fired power plants. The EPA estimates the CSAP rule alone will save the lives of 34,000 people across the nation each year.
    Another Source

    This analysis identified 305 units built before 1960
    So it seems the EPA has decided it's a good idea to shut down power stations in a time when power grids are already overstretched to "save lives". How does leaving potential millions without power in the middle of winter save lives exactly? I wonder if these guys are drinking their own cool aid? This is insanity.

    Re: Speculation on what's next.

    This may be way out there, and stupid. and basically boarding conspiracy from one of the 'needless eaters' as I'm sure is the category I would fall in...but

    They want this country(US) to fall. As I said somewhere before, this pesky business of freedom simply will not do and it must go. And we are watching it happen.

    Add that to the so called "freedom and democracy" that is allegedly happening in the Middle East... There is the few areas that at least tried to not bomb Israel, now getting democracy, right, what they are getting is those in charge who will no longer even try to play nice with Israel and who desire to see her annihilated . Which is what they want for the US also. One way or another

    So Israel, and the US, are basically in the way, and the powers that be are trying to eliminate both problems. One way or another. And with the US, several ways all at once from many directions, plus inside and out

    Right now the ME fuse is burning hot, very HOT.
