Franklin Graham protests University of Maryland cancelling “American Sniper” because Muslim students complained

FRANKLIN GRAHAM’S FACEBOOK POST
Can you believe that the University of Maryland canceled a screening of the movie American Sniper after Muslim students complained? This afternoon, I’m going to meet with wounded military veterans and their spouses who served this nation with honor–fighting to preserve our freedoms and many times shedding their own blood. Chris Kyle was an American hero. It’s brave soldiers like these that make all of the freedoms we enjoy possible. Shame on the University of Maryland for listening to these voices! If these Muslim students can’t support the military members who do their job to protect us, let them leave America and go to a Muslim country. God bless America and our heroes! SHARE this if you agree.

I read the post above and I was struck by the venomous tone. Schools are a melting pot of races and nationalities and schools have to be sensitive to diverse communities. Muslim students complained to officials at the University of Maryland about American Sniper. Graham said if they don’t like it they need to go to a Muslim country. Well if this is where they were born they don’t need to leave their own country. There are movies that some groups applaud and others are offended by that same film and their feelings should be considered and not dismissed, and not told to take a hike.

What candidates connect to everyday Americans?

Who is the everyday American? Do you think you are? We all might think we fall under this wide umbrella, but if that is true how does a candidate connect with all of us? We all have our own set of problems and issues. So how do we determine who is the best candidate to address the myriad issues facing this nation. We are 80 weeks out from Election Day and so far we have heard a lot of Hillary bashing. There are 19 declared and undeclared GOP candidates and they agree on one thing, Hillary Clinton is the enemy, but will that take them to the White House? On the Democratic side we see Hillary Clinton is riding around in her Scoobie mobile eating at Chilpote in an effort to connect to the illusive everyday American. It is sad that every four years candidates on each side decide it is time to talk to the regular folks. Newsflash if the kept the conversation going they would not have such a difficult time connecting.

Why is CJ Pearson’s disrespect for Al Sharpton being celebrated by the right?


I saw this clip on the Fox Insider website with the title, CJ Pearson Owns Al Sharpton. If own means a 12 year old talks about an adult like they are equals than he did it, but I have a problem with this type of disrespect coming out of the mouth of a child. No it was not profane, but disrespectful none the less. We hear teachers complain about the way students talk to them. When we grew up children were seen but not heard. There actually was adult conversation, and they would kindly tell you to leave the room when they wanted to have some. No one is asking for a step backward, but while Rev. Al Sharpton might not be everyone’s cup of tea he deserves more than this. No child should feel this comfortable speaking this way about an adult. What do you think? Share your thoughts.

Miriam Carey and Doug Hughes both entered restricted Capitol space so why was Hughes able to walk away?

Two very different results. Miriam Carey drove into restricted Capitol space and she was killed by Capitol police. Shot 5 times while her 14 month old sat strapped into her car seat. She was shot as she tried to drive away. Yesterday Doug Hughes flew his “gyrocopter” onto the Capitol grounds. Hughes’ aircraft was undetected by NORAD. He blogged about this event over the past year. He was not shot down. He entered undeterred. He was arrested and led away. Maybe if Carey had entered on a “gyrocopter” she might still be here.

Atlanta Educators going to jail, but were they the only ones that failed the students?

Yesterday several Atlanta teachers and administrators received jail sentences for their roles in the Atlanta cheating scandal. The judge vilified the teachers and administrators. What they did was bad there is no argument about it, but were the teachers the only ones responsible for the children’s education? I saw a mother lamenting that her daughter was taking remedial classes in college because of what was done to her in the Atlanta school system, but my question is why didn’t her mother know she had difficulty with her school work? Parents are the children’s first teachers. How many parents read to their children before they could read? how many parents would sit and let their small school age children read to them? Were the Atlanta parents active participants in their children’s education? How many of the parents now complaining every went to a PTA meeting or a parent/teacher conference? No one is excusing what the teachers did but when looking for the people who failed the students some of the parents need to also fault the man/woman in the mirror.

Mika Brzenski called Marco Rubio a boy…is this a problem?

This morning on Morning Joe they were discussing the generation differences between Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio. In making her point about Rubio’s youth she called him a “boy”. No one missed a beat but I remember when Barack Obama was running in 2008 the word boy would have sent the faithful over the edge. So is this not an issue when discussing Rubio? Share your thoughts.

Are We Ready for Hillary?

She is a candidate for president. She is ready to lead, but are we ready to follow? I am not sure if I am ready to take a seat on the Hillary bandwagon. She says she wants to talk to everyday Americans. I am going to wait and hear what she has to say and what she plans to do. Less platitudes and more plans. Hopefully, the GOP will actually reach beyond their comfort zone and truly talk to all groups. At this point there is more acceptance of Hillary and little enthusiasm, and that’s a problem.
