Do you have any tips for students going back to school on how to address the anti-Israel and anti-semitic sentiments that may be spreading onto campus through pro-Palestinian groups?
Stand With Us is a great resource. They have lots of information on their website, and everything is also available as hard copies. If there is a chapter near your college, contact them. If there is a ZOA chapter nearby they may also be helpful. You should check out your school’s Hillel, but be aware that some chapters have become so “enlightened” that they’ve abandoned their purpose for political correctness. Check out Campus Watch.
If you feel that you’re being demeaned or harassed because of your beliefs, and your school’s administration isn’t taking it as seriously as they would harassment of any other minority, contact FIRE.
Be careful in engaging Israel-haters. They do get violent sometimes.
I loathe bandwagons. This is why I withhold judgement until actual facts are presented. It’d be petty of me otherwise.
All week you could have asked people what they thought about the scores of black American teenagers dying every month in our nation’s inner cities because of gang violence and you would have gotten a “Meh, over look that. You hear about the racist pig in Ferguson??” response.
A week of protests where dozens of city vehicles were destroyed, private businesses vandalized and looted all for “justice”. Justice for what? You weren’t there when the incident occured. You took the first bit of sensationalized journalism and ran wild with it.
It’s sickening to see how increasingly animalistic and moraless our society is becoming.
Far too many people just want to racebait and hates cops. Where does that get us? No where but for decay and ruin. And that’s exactly where these people want us to be.
I heard that the police officer was trying to get out of his car to go into an apartment building and Michael Brown and his friend beat him up, preventing him from getting out of the car. They were trying to steal his gun, and the fatal shot was fired from within his car.
Obama needs to stop being such a pacifist little shit and grow some balls and DEAL with this threat. This is HIS personal problem. It’s the result of his decision to remove us from Iraq. He’s a dumbfuck. Anyone with half a brain knew this would happen the moment we left.
Enough with the pacifist bullshit. Act now or we watch this shit spread and die. I ain’t fucking playing around.
I heard cockroaches can survive nuclear fallout though -_-
Every so often it just hits me how stupid the 2nd amendment is
Of course you hate the second amendment…. It’s American gun owner’s fault we killed so many of your countrymen and drove you out of our country during the revolutionary war. No one cares about your opinion of American gun laws. Enjoy your police state you limey fuck.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Marthas Vinyard vacation. It was a blast. I really enjoyed the part where I woke up friday, and looked at my pay stub to find that I was dreaming, and realized that I along with millions of hard working Americans was the one paying for a vacation I wasnt even on.
The world is burning, and Barack Hussein Obama is on vacation.
God bless his over worked soul.
Hope everyone is having a great humpday.
Now back to work, so we can pay for future first Family vacations.
The North Carolina diner that had attracted widespread attention because of a 15 percent discount it sometimes gave customers who pray before meals has decided to drop the discount over fears of legal action. A lawyer from the Freedom from Religion Foundation atheist organization sent a letter to…
Gee, no fight? Your private property, your business, your rules. If someone doesn’t like it, who cares.
A lawyer from the Freedom from Religion Foundation atheist organization sent a letter to Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem, calling the discount illegal under federal civil rights laws, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.
Fuck all these militant atheist soulless crybabies. I’m getting sick of hearing about this shit.
Mary Haglund, co-owner of the restaurant, dropped the discount over fears of a lawsuit from the foundation, according to WGHP-TV in High Point, North Carolina.
The diner posted a note on its front window Wednesday, the Journal noted, which read:
We at Mary’s value the support of ALL our fellow Americans. While you may exercise your right of religious freedom at this restaurant by praying over your meal to any entity or non-entity, we must protect your freedom from religion in a public place. We are no longer issuing the 15% praying in public discount. It is illegal and we are being threatened by lawsuit. We apologize to our community for ANY offense this discount has incurred.
Your private property, your business, your rules. If someone doesn’t like it, who cares.
But Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, said there was no threat to sue Mary’s Gourmet Cafe…
Oh really now?
— only a mention that it has won lawsuits in similar venues, the Journal reported. But Gaylor added that a lawsuit against the restaurant “would not have been off the table,” the Journal noted.
The bolded is a threat, dipshit.
“People who are atheists don’t pray,” Gaylor told the Journal, adding that it’s illegal to “charge an atheist more than a Christian.”
No. No its not illegal. Its a private establishment with its own rules and has the constitutional freedom to give anyone a discount for any reason. I thought you bloody morons wanted separation of church and state? Now you want separation of church, state, and business? What?
In an interview with TheBlaze before the discount was dropped, Haglund, 60, said the gesture had nothing to do a specific religion, nor was it ever advertised.
If it wasn’t advertised then thats more of a reason not to bitch about it. And even if it was advertised, it wouldn’t make an ounce of a difference anyways.
“It’s just a moment or faithfulness about the plate of food,” Haglund added to TheBlaze. “It’s not even a policy — it’s [something] we only do when we’re moved to do it.”
Its not even policy.
Its not even policy.
Its not even policy.
Even if it was policy it wouldn’t make an ounce of difference.
What has this story taught us?
Private businesses can’t have any morals.
Private businesses must put aside their belief and cater to the easily offended or be hit by lawsuit.
Private businesses are not really private.
Private businesses cannot offer prayer discounts because it might make a militant atheist cry.
Private businesses must work hard not to make militant atheists cry.
