September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

If You Learned Your Kid Was in a School Play Containing Bestiality and Incest, How Would You React?

Let’s say your house is humming along in first weeks of a brand-new high school year, and one day you find out your kid’s in an acting class that’s putting on a play with some questionable content.
Like man-in-love-with-a-goat questionable. Like bestiality questionable.
Incest, too. And perhaps unsurprisingly, other sexually explicit content and a fair dose of swear words.
All acted out and starring teenagers.
That’s the news many parents received when it came to light that drama teacher Andrew Cupo of Cactus Shadows High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., introduced students in an advanced acting class to an absurdist play called “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?” by Edward Albee.

In the Tony Award-winning play — which students performed in class rather than in public — a middle-aged man with a wife and teenage son admits he’s in love with a goat named Sylvia with whom he’s had sex, the Arizona Republic reports, adding that the play also explores themes of tolerance, morality, and revenge.
So the Cave Creek Unified School District governing board entertained two hours of public comment about the matter, and the Republic reports that while three parents and one student spoke against the play Tuesday night, about three dozen students and parents spoke in favor of it, some adding that those opposed added fuel to the fire by not speaking to Cupo or the school principal first.
“My daughter was not negatively impacted by the play but she was negatively impacted by being asked in the office if she acted out this play and things she never would have thought of,” said one parent, Sharon Smith.

Jacob Emnett is in Cupo’s class and said he was called to the office and “confronted” by parents calling the play into question: “…We were asked what we thought of Mr. Cupo teaching bestiality. Ironic that they spoke to us of bestiality without the consent of our parents — the same act they condemn Mr. Cupo for. Where a few words or an e-mail would suffice, those who stand against him sought to tear him down.”
Elissa Ericson, head of the fine arts department at Cactus Shadows, tells the Republic that Cupo warned students several times about the explicit content in “The Goat” and offered several opportunities to opt out and study an alternate script. In addition, Ericson notes, parents sign a syllabus at the start of the semester which includes a statement that “students may be exposed to stories or characters that express views and beliefs that differ from their own or those of their parents.”
That wasn’t good enough for parent Guy McAtee, who told the governing board members he assumed they vetted curriculum content.
“Having signed an acknowledgement of the course curriculum is in no way authorization for material of this nature to be approved,” McAtee said, who then made a blistering point.
“I’m sure that since it’s appropriate material, that the language I’m about to use will be approved by the school board,” he said before launching into a passage that included several vulgar sexual expressions.
“That’s offensive to me,” he noted to the board, adding that such content is inappropriate for high school classes.
To that end nine parents filed a report with the Scottsdale Police Department in regard to the issue, reports KNXV-TV in Phoenix, and as district policy dictates, Cupo was placed on paid administrative leave.
Which doesn’t sit well with many of his students, who planned a peaceful protest Friday at Cactus Shadows during which they’ll don his signature bow tie as well as their own homemade T-shirts emblazoned with the Twitter hashtag #freecupo.
