    That's interesting. In my day, courses had "names", which were rather indicative of the subject material they will cover. So, for example, you could be fairly certain that "Social Implications of Transgender Protest Poetry" wasn't part of your engineering studies, and that "Biochemistry III" would have precious little to say about the need for constant sexual experimentation.

    In case you missed this part - she is stating what she will be paying for. If the kid is so much an adult and wish to take in more material, then they are free to get jobs and pay for it themselves.

    No, I didn't miss it. It has no bearing. Paying or not, as my link makes clear, you do your children no favor being so controlling. Who pays is of no consequences.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Since what you are responding to is someone saying what she intends to pay for, then yeah, it is of consequence. Reading is fundamental.

    Luke 6:37 / King James Version

    37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

    No one is teaching homosexuality. These are colleges. I seriously doubt that any of those students need to be taught about what homosexuality is.

    First Amendment stuff there my friend. Both establishment and freedom of speech. Don't like it? Don't have your kid take that class. No one is requiring it.

    And for a little lite reading, maybe you would like to read the following Bible passages about loving thy enemy:

    (Matthew 5:43-44) (Matthew 19:18-19) (Matthew 22:36-39) (Mark 12:29-31) (Romans 13:9) (Galatians 5:14) (James 2:8) (Matthew 5:43-48)

    Christians should continue to love our enemies, that is if we're talking about what the Bible actually says about the subject.

    And as for these politicians a laymen that call themselves ministers of righteousness while condemning others, I feel that this particular verse speaks volumes about them:

    2 Corinthians 11:14-15 / King James Version

    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

    15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

    I have a number of friends and relatives that are gay or lesbian. And none of them are my enemies.

    Homosexual acts have already been judged, I am not judging any one. Nice try though

    little light reading? why read it have it memorized all of them. One homosexuals are not our enemies.
    Two its the homosexual ACTS HE does not condone
    Three God is the same yesterday and forever he will not condone this behavior today.

    Here is a little light reading for you
    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    No human that sins is our "enemy" as you state. I do not know where you got that idea. Christians try to lead to God and away from sin/ acts of sin.

    Yep yep there are many false prophets in the world. just because one calls themselves a christian means nothing heck the catholic church claims to be christian i assure you many things they do are not biblical in any way.

    It's the control that is the issue. At 17, 18 years if age, parents need to step back and not be so controlling. So no, let the young adults go out and be young adults. Paying makes no difference here.

    Nicely displayed. I'm sure that God and Jesus are proud.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    This is the part that I always question. At some point there is a OLD and NEW testament right? So if the Christian God can change his views from the Old to the New, who are YOU to say God didn't try to change his will again, or WILL try it again later on?

    Now tell me, if God decided to send another Jesus to today's time, do you think anyone would notice?

    I don't see an issue with this. The people of SC voted the individuals in to office that cut this funding. They were elected, in part, for their socially conservative views. The people of SC expect those they elect to represent their views. They did so. This isn't infringing upon anyone's rights nor is it restricting anyone from freely expressing their sexuality. It simply forces state funded universities to reflect the values of the majority of the people in the state. If a student at College of Charleston or USC Upstate would like to attend a college that allows that sort of thing, they could go out of state or attend a private university.
    “Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger.” ― Ron Paul
    Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. – Thomas Jefferson
