View Full Version : Praising God in front of h.s. students vs. cursing God in front of them

Six years ago, then graduating senior Brittany McComb was censored by her school's officials for daring to praise God in her valedictorian speech:

Note that all she was doing was talking about her faith and what it meant to her personally in her own life during school. She wasn't saying anything about how other people should take up the same faith.

Cut to earlier this year:

For this, Savage got a slap on the wrist at worst and the praises of countless anti-theists around the world. His comments had absolutely nothing to do with the conference and what he was supposed to be talking about. It was just a vicious, vulgar, vindictive, off-topic tirade against something he hates and the people who dare to believe in it.

You will never find more hypocrisy in liberals than when it comes to the issue of religion and specifically Christianity. Kids can't non-disruptively share their Christian faith with their friends or even practice their faith unto themselves (e.g. praying silently, reading the Bible during free time) in public schools without the secularists coming down hard on them, but if a school wishes to teach the precepts of Islam or have the kids engage in yoga or Zen Buddhist meditation during "gym," that's simply being "tolerant" and "open-minded."

I won't side with either, but I will support their rights to have said what they both said. I am an atheist (Not an anti-theists, there is a difference), as many of you know and I see no problem with what Brittany McComb said. It's the respect for individual faith that many non-believers are attacking these days and that just perplexes me. I don't like organized religion personally, but have never had an issue with someone expresing their individual opinions and praise for their god. Why can't we all just get along?

Because, sadly, those that cry out the most for "tolerance" for themselves are also the ones who never give it to others in return.

We can dish it out but we can't take it. I see it all the time at work.

Savage is a crass and crude bully who goes around talking about that which he is not willing to give himself.

No you didn't. Where the hell do you get off thinking you can compare the modern soldier to Dan Savage?

In what weird twisted universe are they the same.

Where in the hell did you ever get the stupid idea that the "modern soldier" can dish it out but not take it.

Remember boy...you're in a forum full of "modern soldiers" so I'd choose my words very carefully.

I AM a modern soldier, currently stationed in Ft. Lewis. And the soldiers I work with have a very short fuse when they are offended, but expect others to take their comments in stride. I didn't say were the same. I said the concept of one groupsaying whatever they want can be equated to how us soldiers see things. I don't know how many times I have heard someone go on a tirade about *Issue X* and tell the other person to deal with it, but the second someone talks down of soldiers, which for the record I do not like but they have that right, that same soldier launched the world's biggest shit storm over the issue.

They you've got a lot to learn. Hopefully sooner than later. Only Libtard DUmmies...the ones that claim to have been soldiers trash those of us in uniform like that.

So? Welcome to life kid.

Yes you did.

You're splitting hairs in a seriously weak attempt to cover your ass for saying something stupid.

Just stop.

There is so much stupid in this post I'm not sure where to start. If you really are the soldier you claim to be...you'd best be wise to not get down on that level and engage in the same bullshit you're whining about.

For whatever reason you thought it would be a good idea...you engaged for no reason at all in a bullshit theory that modern soldiers are no better a gay foul mouthed bully like Dan Savage.

You base this misguided theory off of the fact you hang around with a bunch of whiny ass privates and shit for brains specialists who think like you do...that they are the smartest one in the barracks and that everyone should listen to their brilliance...and get all but hurt and boo boo faced when someone disagrees with you.

Either that or you're all mad because your team leader or your squad leader is tired of hearing you whine and told you put your mouth at parade rest and you didn't like it.

Either way...you should seriously engage your brain before you put your mouth in drive the next time you want to make a stupid comparison like you just did.

If true, it's not because of being soldiers. It's because you're spoiled rotten Americans who haven't learned better yet. Go back in time and take you and your fellow soldiers out of the Army and place them in an entirely civilian setting and guess what -- you'd all be the same way.

Very well possibly true. I just used the sample audience I am around the most. We are some of the worst offendors of saying whatever we want and then getting pissed off when it is thrown back in our faces. I am guilty of it, too

Actually, tx, my NCO and I are on pretty good terms because I don't run off at the mouth, whine, and act like a sniveling shit. But that's irrelevant. I don't have a problem with people disagreeing with me. And for the most part I don't have an issue when I get trashed for being a soldier. I don't like it, but people have that right to express their feelings about it. All I am saying is we can't go around bashing all the libtards, as you put it, tell them to suck it up and drive on, and then get mad when they answer back. That's it. Have a good rest of your day.

And one more thing, tx. You should see where I made the soldier comment. It was in response to Hubie commenting on me saying "Why can't we all just get along?" Nothing to do with Dan Savage. I did not make any reference to Dan Savage. In fact I believe I said I did not like his actions in my initial post to this topic.
