Is it a religious symbol or piece of history? A controversy over a cross-shaped steel beam found in the World Trade Center rubble…
When I read this article, something stuck out at me.
A group called American Atheists will argue before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday that the cross does not belong in the private 9/11 museum, which will open on property leased from the government.
It’s a private museum. It is not government funded. When it says the property is being leased from the government, that implies that the museum is paying the government to use the property just as any other renter would.
So if they want the cross in the museum, it should be there.
And if atheists don’t want it there, they don’t have to visit.
No matter what you think those two beams are, they gave people hope and comfort in a very troubling time.
This government property reason is crap. It’s being leased. Unless there was something in the lease saying “no crosses,” then there is nothing wrong with it being there.
What I see is that the atheists are making this about religion and are trying to take away a symbol of comfort.
In the lead up to the 86th annual Academy Awards, one prevalent meme was that some Oscar voters simply didn’t want to watch “12 Years a Slave.” As it turns out, that was true: at least two anonymous members of the Academy of Motion Picture …
I heard there are about 6,000 Oscar voters, so 2 is kind of insignificant.
But it’s an example of what’s wrong with our society. Just as with Obama’s election, this shows that people are voting based on assumptions and what it would mean if something won and it’s significance in history.
If it’s too violent for you to go see, then you shouldn’t vote for it.
People are just so afraid of being racist. It’s stupid. You’re being racist by thinking you’re going to be called racist if you don’t do something.
Went to three different stores before I finally found this. So I kinda went overboard and bought more than necessary. #ben&jerrys #karamelsutra
After I posted this on instagram, I looked at the “karamelsutra” tag and there were all these people posting about it and I’m just thinking “bitches this has been out for years and you didn’t even know. I have been a slave to this for years, thinking about it when the stores I normally go to stopped carrying it, and now that they re-branded it, you think you’re so cool that you’re trying it.
Maybe now that it’s re-branded though they’ll put it back into the stores I like going to.
Because it was not fun going to a bunch of different stores all over kingdom come on a cold rainy day. I love rain but it gets old getting in and out of the car over and over again.
So there’s your non-political post of the day.
This is the best!!!
Shouting to be heard after having his microphone cut, an incensed Rep. Elijah Cummings exploded at Rep. Darrell Issa during a committee hearing Wednesday, accusing the House Oversight Committee chair of running a “one-sided investigation” into the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. Cummings (D-Md.) is the committee’s ranking Democratic…
Cummings is an absolute nut job.
There is a woman sitting in front of him who is corrupt and has let her power go to her head and Cummings wants to turn the attention on Issa? This woman has refused to talk numerous time costing us taxpayer dollars and he wants to turn it on Issa?
If anyone is politicizing it, it’s him. He was given the chance to ask a PROCEDURAL question and all he says is “what is Issa hiding?”
Here’s a good question: What is Lois Lerner hiding?
Cummings was childish and if I was Issa, I would have just flat out walked out as soon as I hit the gavel.
I love this!
Heidi’s sad face because Leonardo DiCaprio is still Oscar-less.
I must note though that Heidi’s favourite actor is Liam Neeson and she thinks he deserves all awards ever.
And I’m being serious. She actually watched Taken and Taken 2. Eyes open looking at the screen. That’s my girl.
