Re: “Let the Yorktown remind us of the fight for religious freedom

1. The process for those coming from Islamic terrorist harboring countries should take as long as necessary to ensure the safety of all American people. You're putting a time limit on this?

2. Sad attempt at equivalation. The Little Sisters of the Poor is a clear and present example of the violation of religious rights. And I'm not idolizing anyone, just agreeing that our current vetting system is broken.

3. Your should actually do some research on our immigration system rather that just spouting off. The federal government has restricted immigration from war torn areas of the globe throughout our history as well as denied citizenship to those immigrants who do not ascribe to American civil beliefs. Race was used as a determinate in the past and was wrong, but belief systems, radical in nature are still a factor on granting admission. It's not McCarthyism to deny refugee status to terrorists, Islamic or otherwise whose belief system, acted out through violence, could us harm.

If a person's belief system was Nazism, should they be let into the country?

I would say no, but is that too extreme for you, son?

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

@factoryconnection, I completely agree with you. What I noticed, with no insult intended, is that it seems all of these women, including Stephanie, have been out of school for longer they were in it. I don't see anyone college-aged in the group. Let's hope that they can find a way to motivate the younger slacktivists.

Re: “Let the Yorktown remind us of the fight for religious freedom

1st, we already have an extreme vetting process, or do you think the process should take more than a year and a half?
2nd, to complain about the rights of Sisters of the Poor while idolizing the Grand Poo-Bah of misogyny in American cartoons seems a little disingenuous.
3rd, In what era other than the McCarthy era were immigrants excluded en mas because of race or belief?
Now listen here,son. I say this is what happens when ya keep cuttin History Class.

The right to terminate a fetus up until birth and an electing a corrupt pay-for-play female for president.

Sounds like a winning formula. :)

Re: “Let the Yorktown remind us of the fight for religious freedom

While I'm no defender of Trump's original comment on a ban on Muslim's entering the United States, I believe within the context of Muslims coming from countries that are not only hotbeds of Islamic terrorism but from countries where the rule of law has broken down so much so that official documents on these "refugees" from those countries are questionable. These individuals should have, as Trump has expanded upon, extreme vetting. Most common sense people would agree that the blanket amnesty for people coming from Islamic extremist regions currently in place makes all Americans, Muslim and non-Muslim, unsafe. The current immigration laws allow the government, as it did with Nazi spies coming in from Germany with actual refugees, to reject or prosecute those those who would do all Americans harm.

I would suggest if you wish to write about freedom of religion you might consider the current violations of the religious rights of the Sister of the Poor whose Christian beliefs on abortion were undermined by Obama and the federal court under HHS rules when they were forced to fund abortions.

Your facile chicken-little straw man piece is typical of CCP editorial writers but what is most disturbing is your ignorance of our immigration system and how it is suppose to work. A system which has throughout our history restricted the blessing of American citizenship to those who actually believe in the ideals of America, with freedom of religion being one of those beliefs.

I hate the attitude that if you are a woman you must vote for Hilary. Who cares whether or not you go along with her politics or how she conducts herself. She is a woman. You are a woman. Therefore you must vote for her.

"It's a hell of a thing, killin' a man. Take away all he's got, and all he's ever gonna have."

If it took weeks of testimony to achieve an outcome to fry this filth, so be it

Re: “Dylann Roof shows no remorse in closing statements in capital trial

And what you omitted is that, during his interrogation, He told officers he hoped to be a martyr for his cause. He gets the death penalty, he wins.

Re: “How many witnesses does it take to sentence a confessed murderer?

Gee, Dwayne, I would have thought that as an attorney you would have known the answer, which is, "as many as we can get." The prosecutor's job in this phase is to make sure he gets the verdict he wants. If just one juror says "no" to the death sentence, it's life in prison, so the prosecutor's method is to heap on such an over-abundance of testimony that no juror could conceivably vote that "no. And you, Dwayne, as a criminal defense attorney know that.
Also, "the definition of overkill", were you really that clever to think that up by yourself?

...and when I'm elected...

Re: “How many witnesses does it take to sentence a confessed murderer?

If it were a paid by the hour attorney, I would understand why they lead a parade of witness to the stand. The prosecutor is milking his 5 minutes in the sun because this is likely the most famous case of his career.

Re: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

I'll have to agree with this article completely. Dylan Roof, no doubt has been miseducated, as well as under educated, but it doesn't excuse his actions. Information is like a two edge sword, and we now have an abundance of it. Some information is good and some is not. Each and everyone of us have to selectively learn to choose, from our sorce of information wisely.

Re: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

We need to make it perfectly clear that he don't regret what he did and we don't regret his punishment. If someone stands before the court and states he has no regrets for what he did to those people who showed him nothing but kindness and acceptance then he should not be granted any appeals and he should be put to death immediately.
