Michael Eppers commented on Taylor's blog post Why I Can No Longer Listen to Country Music Radio
"Sorry Tammy, I should have waited until later ;) Here is a warning: Never google Country Songs with the word god....it will ruin your digestive system. But there is Robbie Fulks with a country song called "God isn't real" "

"I know we don’t like to be compared to religion. We criticize Christians because of the many denominations pointing fingers and yelling “You’re not worshipping the right way!” I am beginning to see the same mentality among…"

"Michael, you make some excellent points. The left needs an equivalent to Fox News. They say all the media are leftist, which is silly, but we need a real, consistent voice -- like Fox, only telling the truth. There is a radio network, maybe more…"

"I don't remember where I read this quote or who gets credit for it: "A person either has empathy or is a conservative".  Pretty much sums it up for me."

"No, Romney has not given an adequate statement regarding his religion. Just the opposite, he has further embossed himself in religion with his VP pick. They have clearly embraced the religious right as the foundation on which their platform is…"

It is not the economy and no I am not stupid

In every Presidential election I hear the same line: It’s the economy stupid. I don’t claim to be a genius, but I think that I could safely say that in this election it is not the economy. It is about rights, gay rights and women’s rights. Those should be the two main issues that task the political landscape. Politicians will deflect comments that are made in their party and state that “We should talk about things that are really important, jobs and the economy.” That’s bullshit. The election…See More

"Richard, Southpark is definitely good at stirring emotions.  I wouldn't take Cartman too seriously though.  He IS the most narrow-minded/bigoted character on the show.  It would be ad hominem tu quoque to dismiss everything he…"

What happened to you guys? You were supposed to change the world. You were supposed to bring peace and harmony to the world. Remember Peace, Love and Understanding? I thought that you guys would have gained some control in politics and we would not be fighting the religious right in…

Chick-Fil-A mess. The politicians are wrong

Posted on July 27, 2012 at 12:07pm 5 Comments

Is it me or has there been an extreme amount of hyperbole concerning a certain fast food restaurant that serves chicken sandwiches? I agree that there should be some discussion about the owner and his statements. The LGBT community and their supporters should not patronize this establishment for obvious reasons. All groups that support the equal rights of the gay community should raise their voices in protest. Any business that financially and vocally supports measures that limits the equal…

I give up. Christians can have America....but

Posted on July 16, 2012 at 3:51am 3 Comments

I give up Christians, you win. You can have control of America. Your arguments using the Bible are too much for me to refute. You want to use the Bible for the basis for all of our laws. So I am giving you full reign to change all of our current laws to coincide with the laws your God commands in the Bible.

Before I give you full and supreme power over America, there are a few items that have to be decided. Which religion will everyone have to conform? You can’t have different…
