Comment: RE: Hate Crime Prevention Act Article -
(http://www.snopes.com/politics/sexuality/hatecrime.asp)

Is there anyway to shut down the AFA website which is circulating this
inacurrate information at this url:
http://www.afa.net/hatecrime2.asp

This exact verbiage is what is being passed around today by various folks
and what prompted me to come to snopes.com to verify it's validity.
According to your site this is FALSE.
How do we get this information off the web?

Comment: This movie(The golden compass) and every thing Phillip Pullman
has written should be destroyed. God gives us every breath and second of
life and he died to save us from damnation and give us enternal life
through his son Jesus christ. and we need god now more than ever the kids
in this world shouldn't be taught to hate the one who love's them more
then anyone else does. If this man want's to burn in hell all we can do is
pray for him and show him god's love through us and tell him what god does
for us every second of are lives and tell him about what jesus christ
wen't throw and how he died on calvary to save us from hell and paid are
sin debt . But we can't let him take away the chance for our children to
know and share the love and blessings of god. this country was built on
God we need to keep God in this country not let fools take god out when
this country need's him most.

Yes! Let’s bring back book burning

I thought my enternal life was helping me digest my food not saving me from sin – does that mean vomiting is anti-god?

Forcibly seize and destroy anything that goes against your ideology, yes – hate, no.

“..and paid are sin debt”. Did you perchance burn any books on basic literacy by mistake at all?

Comment: This world seems to be going to hell in a basket.

If thinking people had any sense, they would contact their city and state
officials to have the book written by athiest Pullman banned from their
area.

When you want to hit anyone effectively, you hit them in the pocket book.
Let's ban this guys movie.

Wait a minute: does this mean that he'll go to hell if they pray for him? The tortured grammar is far, far more of an offence to God... if there was one, I'd quite like for him to reward the ability to use an apostrophe properly than what he apparently does now - rewarding belief in him.

Oh, and I want the award to be chocolate, not eternal life.

If you don't want to read the book or see the movie, then don't do it. I have no desire to do either and you don't see me wanking about it.

The day these letters start making sense is the day I voluntarily commit myself because it will mean I'm too far gone.

I believe that was rolled into the Patriot Act. Pauly Shore is seen to pose a clear and present danger to the American way of life. Bud-dy.

If thinking people had any sense, they would make up their own minds. Really, if your faith is so weak that a children's movie can destroy it, maybe you should rethink your beliefs.

Comment: I can't believe these Atheists, we need to counter act their
horrible intent to rid of God out of our lives. Something needs to be
done... Why don't christians strike against these movies like the
atheists do, instead they watch these horrible undermining trash.

Any ideas, I say burn the books and boycott the stores!

Yes, emulating fascism sounds like a good approach to establishing a great society.

Yes, the christians could make movies or even have cable channels. What is wrong with those christians that they don't do that?

Oh, wait they do.... and I don't whine about them.

Comment: RE: An Alaskan's Opinion

This Crap is just more republican bashing. Why now to bring up this
defamitory piece of scat. Sour Grapes. The author states she's doesn't
have documentation. I don't live in Alaska but you have got to appreciate
she is Govener of a very important State. Alaska is on the Front line of
National Defense, that's got to be a very tough job.This lady wouldn't
want Gov. Palin to try and dig up dirt on her, would she? Gov. Palin is
qualified. This lady already said she didn't vote for her so she should
just SHUT UP.

Really? Many states are "on the Front line of National Defense", and the Govener (sic) has fairly little to do with it and fairly little say in what the fed's do. The time when the Govener (sic) is important is when the the "front line" is moved and the feds withdraw bucket loads of money (like happened to San Diego in the late 80's and 90's).
