Here we go again, non-believers insisting upon doing exactly what Christians and other religiousRead More people are accused of doing-prosthelytizing. Also, if this short-sighted character wishes all government entities to separate themselves from promotion or support of religious beliefs, that should also apply equally to her proud godlessness.

@'nonoise' April 20, 2014 at 01:17 PM... Hey! I get your noise! You continue to go further out, toRead More try to gain traction for your action for change of laws to your favor ~ have at it, though I will not instruct you as to viable methods of achieving your ungainly wants. Yes, I checked your ruse on ABC7 as asked to. I disagree, Ortiz' church should not be exempt from your overbearing as opposed to their messaging. We will always have that. But... thanks for underlining my response to 'Sean's original beef thrown back up in your response in balance. Your engaging in victimology negates, any sympathy from me and underlines why you are not gaining any consensus in your neighborwierd. Taking your cause to Brandon, FL does not lend inertia to your personal cause or wants in Northridge-Chatsworth, CA... but have at it. ¶ Your non-contextual 'win' against Father Ortiz' church is a victory you may keep and tout as connected, but I do not see it your way on balance.______________________________ 'Chris'... on another front, in your comment ~ 'atheist' is over-capitalized. But, have at it... though some believe, many atheists are couching their personal attacks against believers ~ under the guise of the First Amendment protections. What may be missing in the instance of the 'woman' denied her wants for '8theist' plate, is how the law for qualifying the wording may have been sidestepped or the personal wants of the DMV technician or examiner in that state. Much like, the flap(non-story) over the Stars 'n Bars commemorative plate recently. In that non-story, the lack of sensitivity is acknowledged for the few who take issue over the flap. I doubt, the plate was discontinued but the artist could have showed more sense... just as the examiners, could have raised issue - over previous flaps over the heritage aspect of the Stars 'n Bars on state issued items. If I have read 'Reajean Imler French's comment correctly, she raises(seems to) the viable issue that 'atheists' are imposing their brand of religion and elbowing for more prominence than they deserve. If so, I agree and little chance will present itself for capitalizing 'atheism' beyond their large 'A' followers short-sighted-ness. Out here in Left-coast California, when I see a Stars 'n Bars on a truck, car or hanging on a wall... I see respect for heritage first and always willing to wait for transgressions showing otherwise. Just don't see it from those who display the Stars 'n Bars! But, some nitwit can be expected to make issue and become vandalous based on their short-sighted-ness from the nominal courage of the display in this looney state(CA) ~ full of Liberals/liberals and illiberal actions('nonoise') alike. Sheeeish!... get a grip New Jersey!

Very nice and truly professional. I remember when the entire wedding and other masses were done inRead More Latin and the clergy would sing most of it. Good job.
Anna Bucciarelli April 20, 2014 at 05:59 pm
Expected or not, it was a true gift from the heart of Fr. Kelley. My own wedding mass was a highRead More nuptial and lots of singing in Latin took place by three priests. It was exceptionally beautiful then but not as personal as this seemed to be.

Those leaving negative comments perhaps have not been to church in awhile. Clapping in church isRead More not an everyday occurrence, but does happen when warranted. It was beautiful gesture. I'm think God having a since of humor , after all he made us and gave us free will, would approve.

It's about FRIGGIN time these retailers are held accountable for the DAMAGES they cause toRead More consumers.

Why is this trending again, when this took place last year, basically.... Between getting hit atRead More Target and Micheal's, I had to change my debit card twice in a very short period of time.

Ok........lots of happy people here. When my children were young we hid eggs in the yard for theirRead More hunt. One dog used to collect them before we went outside and put them on his bed, smelling the candy inside. Kids learned to trade dog treats to get their eggs back. A different kind of egg hunt- and I miss that dog.

Yep, It's not bad enough that MA was already #1 in the country for debt per capita, let's make itRead More worse ! What a pork barrel waste of money.

People, remember -- There are FOUR subway lines that go into the Downtown Crossing / Back Bay area.Read More You don't HAVE to take the Green Line. The ORANGE line goes to Back Bay Station, and it's pretty centrally located. Also, consider watching the Marathon from a less-populated area, such as Framingham / Newton / Needham.

David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 01:39 pm
So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.

Surprised and pleased to see that the Patch covered the 'debate' and published a report. There isRead More so much more going on behind the scenes that a true news vehicle/reporter could investigate and report. Shout out to Splice...you saved me much typing time! And folks, please, do support Comm2A and GOAL. At least, go to their websites to educate yourself if you are unsure about the 2nd Amendment and what it really means. The 2nd Amendment is there to insure We The People always the the means to protect ourselves against criminals and crazies and especially to fight back against a TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT!!

One more thing : despite what we see on tv shows(sometimes I think that's where a lot of ourRead More politicians get there info), biometrics is not a foolproof technology. I've been privileged to know some of the tech leaders in the field and, although"pretty reliable", its not a panacea for gun violence. If instituted there is no doubt it would create an underground industry that would find ways to defeat any "safeguards" based on biometrics. The "biometrics " approach is a,distraction invented by pols

The guns will be used on liberal politicians! It's just a matter of time until civil war breaks outRead More in this country! The country is divided in half! On one side is Tea Party, Republicans, working class and people who believe in the constitution , then on the other side you have liberal democrats which are special interest groups, minorities, illegal immigrants, gays , unions which are police , firefighters , teachers and various uneducated working groups, then the welfare crowd! These are the nitwits who vote Democrat! The war will erupt real soon!

Because if you can get 10 or 100 or 1000 people to join in something, why not maximize their effortsRead More and volunteer to create a memorial or clean up a park and donate a bench or donate something to the MIT police rather than just flipping a switch.

They want you to put the money in the machine. Have they lowered the prices? No. Now when you go to fast food places they want you to do their job for them. Pour your own drinks. Do you get a discount? No. Seems to me the more places you go the more they want, you the paying customer to do their job for them. Put the soda machine behind the counter and do the work that you want the minimum wage increase for.
