    The boycott was organized by the Southern Baptist Convention, American Family Association and Focus on the Family. Earlier the Catholic League organized a boycott of Disney over the movie Priest. They called for not buying Disney products and to contact Michael Eisner, among other things.

    And if he does not have a show he will still not be silenced. There is no constitutional right to having a profitable radio show.

    One to watch for sure...This is the exact argument we are having here, and it would suggest that the Church does extend its freedom protection to schools etc.

    An interesting article I found...

    So while the vast majorities of both Americans and immigrants in America are Christian, and more than half of Americans say religion is very important in their lives, the president continues to prod and poke at the moral underpinnings of our society in his drive to reach fundamental transformation.Imparting perspective on demographics and religion, David P. Goldman's 2011 book How Civilizations Die cites demographics making a compelling case that much of the world's populations are in the process of crashing, with profound implications for the future.
    Peoples who give up hope in the future, bonds to the past, and faith in themselves and God tend to stop reproducing, leading to an aging population and eventual collapse. Goldman discusses the same process in ancient civilizations, the Bible, and the modern world:
    The highest fertility rates in the developed world are found in countries with a high [COLOR=#009900 !important]degree[/COLOR] of religious faith, namely the United States and Israel. Dozens of new studies document the link between religious belief and fertility[.]1
    ... What makes America utterly and completely exceptional among the industrial countries, in short, is that it will still be here in a hundred years. It is not that Americans in general are having children, but that Americans of faith are having children. In both Europe and America, people who practice a religion have far more children than those who do not. It's just that there are far more Americans than Europeans practicing a faith.2
    In his hubris and haste, the president has tipped his hand, showing all Americans of faith just where their free exercise of religion stands in Obama's imperious new world.

    I am sure the source rather than the substance will be attacked, but for those who are intellectually honest, it is a good read.

    The source and the substance will be attacked.

    People aren't having less children in the industrialized world because they're not as religious.

    They're having less children because we're wealthier and having kids is expensive.

    Having more kids in the past and in the third world has more to do with practicality then anything else.

    If you're a subsistence farmer in Nigeria, you have a bunch of kids so:

    A: when they get older they can work in the fields.
    B: At least some of them will look after you in old age.
    C: Many are likely to die in the first 2 years if not at birth.

    You're articles as **** as the website is.

    You really do build your house on the sand when it comes to debate dude.

    The article didn't say, just that the Army had pulled the ad due to complaints by veteran groups.


    Are you saying you don't respect veterans that served our country if they disagree with you politically???


    No freedom of speech for veterans? Is that how you roll?

    I find that troubling.

    If that ain't the pot calling the kettle black after you just said about veterans that do not agree with you.
