    Typical over-reaction, like the supposed homophobic slur in Ender’s Game.

    Drones are a serious issue, but VISA wasn’t making jokes about drones. Someone’s just looking for something to be outraged about.

    Nothing to see here. Move along.

  • Yeah,, I was going to point that out about Songmaster, but I imagined someone could twist the molestation part into an attack on the book.

  • Boycott the film because you don’t like the guy’s views on homosexuality – that’s fine.

    Denigrating a classic science fiction series because someone decided that nicknaming a bug like alien species “Buggers” is idiotic. If you haven’t read at least the first book, you are not qualified to comment on it.

    It’s kind of like people who think all thrash metal is evil because of the sound of the guitars, without listening and finding out that the lyrics usually deal with important social issues, rather than just being crap pop songs about partying.

  • Each of the words had a purpose and meaning, and he believed each of them because today President Obama has more in common with former President George W. Bush than with Senator Barack Obama, who decided to run for president in the 2008 Election.

    Horsesh!t. He hasn’t changed one bit since he entered politics. We just stopped believing the lies he was willing to tell to get elected.

    Thanks, Obama, for setting back the Democratic party yet again. You’ve done more damage in the last 4 months than Shrub did in his last 4 years.

    Welcome to FDL. Now get the fuck out of here.

    History is history – no religion today has been unchanged by the selfish and manipulative over the last two millenia. Martin Luther was a great Protestant and a raving anti-Semite. Every religion, when it gains worldly power, has seemed to falter and take advantage, and that is very wrong (Crusades, Inquisition, etc).

    You have the right to disagree and disbelieve all you want.. you’re doing it politely, and that’s cool with me. :)

    When it comes down to it, at the end, each person will know whether there is a God (for good or ill of their soul at that point), or they won’t know anything. :) I’m more about being a good person as I see it, and I think that’s what will ultimately matter (unless I’m wrong, and then I’ll never know I was wrong.)

    Agreed. Tons of people think they should sell it all off and feed the hungry, but those items of history should be available to the faithful, not locked in some rich guy’s house.

    That’s funny and non-offensive. :)

    E.F. -

    No, you can question and discuss in a civil way. What I was referring to was the constant stream of vulgar abuse being laid on people who defended their faith, and the unending litany of pedophilia jokes. CNN is nothing but a cesspool of people who are superior to the next in every way, shape, and form.

    I haven’t seen anyone on FDL being an outright jerk. We can discuss differences in belief or non-belief without being horrid to each other – that was my original point.

    I just don’t get it. I’m not a Catholic, but I respect their faith, the same as I would anyone else with strong convictions and faith. I don’t believe in Mormonism by a long shot, but I would never make fun of them in a public forum with the intent of belittling their religion and making someone feel bad about their faith.

    It’s like bullying, but at a higher level. Internet trolls have to have a purpose too, I guess.

    I was just reminded of why I never read CNN any more – all of the non-religious elitists were out in full force, dumping as many pedophile and funny hat comments as they could all over the message boards.

    I will never understand why some people delight so in attempting to tear down another person’s faith.

    I can’t stand Maddow, Schultz, and the rest of those idiots – they’re just as badly partisan as those moronic hacks at Fox. You can’t trust major news networks – they are there to sell a product to a specific audience, and doing anything but demonizing the other side doesn’t entertain their sheep followers.

    That’s so hilarious. Cavlan managed, yet again, 0.5% of the vote, finishing dead last. He got less than half of the votes of the guy who didn’t finish dead last, the weird looking guy with the huge beard. He’s got to feel great about that. Maybe after 3 elections in 6 years with the same [...]

    I think the “Bush Tax Cuts” are now officially “King Obama’s Tax Cuts”, or will be when he renews them yet again.

    Waiting for the Kos morons to start trolling with their “I told you so” dances.

    Federal lawsuit coming in 3….2….

    How dare they try to trump federal law? King Obama simply will not stand for it.. off with their heads! (using a drone, probably)

    Funny story about that.. I’m black, and I couldn’t hold my nose and vote for Obama, never mind just vote for him because of his color.

    Right. Those who went out on the front lines, at least voted for the right guy, who could make change. They didn’t vote for the bus driver, because he shared their same views.

    Yeah, because Obama was so freakin’ different from Bush after he got into office, huh? Since you’ve already made several allusions to the [...]

    So, now you’re just trying to be offensive. How nice of you to try to turn this into racism. Dumbass. Go back to Kos.

    Oddly enough, every single comment that Blu has ever written has been to call someone else a Republican shill or a troll if they aren’t blowing Obama. Someone has issues.
