    Has The Rock been negligent, breached its duty of care or committed crimes against god? then tell us your truthful stories of abuse and neglect and your views.

    Will whats happened to The News of the World happen to The Rock?

    At C.1:Q.96, Nostradamus foretells of an iconoclastic prophet, using refined language to continually educate, who is raised in the Last Days.

    Logmion is here and says "Bring Back Petrus Romanus"

    I want to read her letter from God regarding all the lies she has told and about her slandering other people. I am concerned that her letter from God is how she thinks of herself – very Holy (not).

    I am actually quite liberal and had always thought of Sarah as unintelligent reflection of our society... I mean how was she able to get so high in the ladder with her... well that's not the point

    After reading this article, I actually have a newfound respect for her. It explains that god is a concept created by humans to help them cope with a difficult situation. She writes this email to herself and to family in god's name in attempt to convince herself and family that the difficult decision she had made to keep a child with Downs and love him unconditionally was to her the correct thing to do. She understands that he will have a hard life and will be much more demanding of her time than her other children, but trudges along.

    I still think she's dumb, but I applaud her realization that god, is created by the individual in effort to help her cope with the pressures of life and the oath she makes to herself under the name of her personal god. I think there are many believers who doesn't even have the guts to do that!

      @siubo11A.....God created by the individual???? WOW....now YOU are the dumb one. We were created in the image of God, not the other way around. You have to bury your conscience deep down into nothingness to buy that lie. Sadly, you will find that God does exist, I pray it's on this side of life. Why on earth would anyone reject the opportunity to personally know the One true Living God, the creator of the universe? Now THAT is truly dumb.

  5. Death of the GOP

    Just really says something about Republicans. First Quayle as VP, then Dubya, and now the current candidates. The IQ is steadily dropping, and a touch of madness taking over. Are you people serious? You can't find anybody amongst Republican governors or in Congress who's got an actual brain and hasn't completely lost their minds? This is the present and the future of the GOP??

    christians are "accepting" only when it's convenient or pertains to themselves. Never when it pertains to others. Self righteous ego maniacs!

    • Zelda (the real one)

      @Franstie, no, Christians are the only ones with God's Spirit and try to follow God's Truth. Personally, I really like the serious Christians. They are the only ones with unconditional, sacrificial love and true intelligence and wisdom that is from knowing the Word of God. There is nothing amoral about them.

    • VoipOfReason

      Where do these people come from? Zelda, do some research before you claim "They {christians} are the only ones with unconditional, sacrificial love and true intelligence and wisdom that is from knowing the Word of God. There is nothing amoral about them.".... I guess that "sacrificial" love really showed itself during the crusades, or maybe during the numerous petophile scandels, oh wait, I know, its the fact that your most iconic religous symbol, is a medevil torcher device, and you wonder why we consider you dumb....

    SARAH FAMILY ARE OUT OF SHAPE. WHAT KIND OF GOD WOULD LET HER FAMILY BE SO UNHEALTHY? MAYBE SARAH SHOULD TRY INDIAN GOD. JUST PLUCK A FEW FEATHERS FROM A CHICKEN AND PUT IT ON HER FOREHEAD, START DANCING . IT WOULD BE LIKE A NEW AEROBIC EXERCISE

  9. Spiffy

    As an atheist and a Liberal I generally do not agree with Palin. In this case I still do not agree with her because of her belief in God but I still feel sympathy for what must have been a very difficult time in her life. I have absolutely no problem with her trying to find peace in a time that must have been full of doubt and worry.

    Zelda, how could eternal torture in a "hell" be considered fair punishment merely for saying something that your supposed loving god didn't like? Any reasonable, modern court would consider such punishment barbaric. Therefore, your god would be an azzhole if it existed. Glad it doesn't.

    • Zelda (the real one)

      @Gozar, without the knowledge of hell, all humans will behave like demons. Besides, sin deserves hell, it's justice. Don't be naive and morally chaotic. Everyone dies. That shows everyone faces judgment. You guys are so blasphemous and evil now, I can't imagine a world without the knowledge of the eternal consequences.

  12. Frogist

    Two things. Yes, I was moved and surprised by the email. But I wouldn't go so far as to say it brought me over to her side. Her politics are too far right. Her religious fervor is still off-putting. And her pettiness and bile when dealing with people she disagrees with is still repulsive. Just because at one time she wrote an introspective-ish letter about her fears and hopes for her child, does not mean she would be a good preisdent.
    And secondly, I'm not sure pointing the finger at atheists as those who attacked her for how crazy she was in writing in the name of God, is accurate. I would have to re-read all the comments for that. I just hope that CNN isn't perpetuating the stereotype of the "angry atheist".

    • billy wingo

      her game is high speed ranting and raving. Psychologically, its designed to overwhelm the listener and prevent them from htinking about what she says.

      BTW re god and Pailin, Lets not forget her website where she put Rep Gifford and others into the crosshairs. encouraging that schizo who mass murdered people in Tuscon.

      Palin is only trying to further drive the paranoia of all the gun nuts and religious extremists in the republican bible belt.

      BTW, in england, where handguns are all but illegal, their population adjusted gun death rate is 1/50ths of the USA

      IN canada, its 1 /7

      She belongs in a federal prison for life re Tuscon.

      @ Billy

      Where'd you get those statistics from?

      June 20, 2011 at 10:20 pm |
    • Frogist

      @Billy: Yes, she was extremely irresponsible when she put up those crosshairs. She is frequently irresponsible with her violent rhetoric. It creates an environment of callousness where finding solutions to problems becomes much more difficult. It is an environment where respect for others is diminished and dehumanizing of people in favor of a biased image and violence from that may be more likely IMO. Having said that, I think the responsibility for Giffords shooting was with the shooter. Loughner's obssession with Giffords and proclivity to violence made him pull that trigger. The blame for that cannot be placed on Palin's head.

    • Thanks

      @Funkytown – thanks for the reminder about hooter-s. I had it on the old list but lost the latest updates. I have updated the list but you guys can do it yourselves anyway, but it will appear next time.

      @Peace2All – 8O This is an update, sirrah.
      No Sum Dude exists anymore, being relegated to the Mists of Time due to a certain badly-managed cnn blog. (I see nothing!)
      I was ar-sing about and remembered a few other words to add. Still missing a few, though. There's one or two that can make your post completely disappear that I haven't encountered again. They were rarely-used nasty words anyway.
      Haowareye? (notice the accent?) :P
      Have a good week. I'll drop in from time to time to kick these wildly delusional idiots in their gestalt before they hurt someone when I get a free moment...anyway,
      Peace

      @LinCA – When I first saw your use of switches I was impressed and glad to know there are other ways past the filter.
      Thanks. I am not updating that part of the list. Most people aren't going to need it or want it. They just need the letter combos for the most part. I often wonder if CNN has kept count of all the complaints people have made about the filter over the past year? And for everyone that complains, hundreds, probably thousands, do not bother. They could have all this fixed, but then what would we complain about? Hmm.

      @I_get_it – Adelina is just one of the most likely to experience severe brain hemorrhaging due to her "problem". She can go elsewhere if she likes, of course. There are much nicer places she could go. Very far away places. And nice, art discussions can be had for those who want them in some of those places. I really think she would have a much nicer time elsewhere. :P
