    Would be nice to see Bortles or Bridgewater fall to #8 but not counting on it. Thankfully, I'm seeing few mock drafts these days linking the Vikings and Carr. Think they could trade up in the...

    The defense is clearly a huge problem and can be addressed after the first round. Good defenders at any position don't impact defenses like good QBs impact offenses. Although immediate success from...

    So I click on the link above and get a few chuckles. Then I click on a couple other articles off in the margin and discover I've stumbled upon a goldmine. Well, not really, but it is some pretty...

    Vikings should be at #3 after this weekend since Washington plays Atlanta. Even at #4, if Houston passes on Bridgewater (not impossible) and nobody trades up, he wears the Purple in 2014. The draft...

    Finally, a true land of hope and promise! Just need to sneak in before construction of the 20-foot walls.

    With the way the defense has played, the year is probably lost anyway. But maybe they can contend for the 6th spot if Freeman clicks with the receivers quickly. At least this sends the message that...

    If that is the huge concern, where was the mandate that folks carry catastrophic insurance rather than a plan they may not be able to afford or even want? That approach suffers from the flaw of not...

    Levi beat me to the punch. I could just as easily ask how a Christian could support a bill that will take from the young and often struggling. I fail to find the morality in running up bills for...

    I really can’t imagine the far-reaching benefits to be achieved by changing the team name. This country has recognized its sins, perhaps more than any other country. Just seems like folks trying to...

    Sorry, I misinterpreted what you were saying, similar to how you may be misinterpreting the use of Redskin as a term of derision, although you are not alone in that regard. So where does it stop? ...

    The intent of those team names is to demean a group. You appear to believe the same is true for Redskin when examples abound to the contrary, some from Native-Americans themselves! Odd that a...

    The “nobody with a brain” comment was foolish and unfortunately the language of debate these days. The civility of discourse (for now) exceeds that of BYTO in its final years, but the generosity in...

    I say now with confidence there will be no turning back once that bridge is crossed. Common sense tells me a mother and father is the ideal. Some studies will support me and others won't. People...

    I don’t doubt you, but reason will not be invited to the table. Think of those Catholic adoption agencies that were closed rather than permitted to favor male-female couples. Equality, not welfare...

    Male-female defined every definition of marriage throughout secular history.


    Debate of these issues took place during the time of Christ. Not exactly treading new moral ground here.

    Overturning thousands of years of unquestioned tradition until very recently demands compelling reasons for redefining marriage to something other than male-female. I don’t see them.

    Dig a little deeper and you will see there is little distinction between reason and the heart. Reason begets “rationalization” which can lead to virtually any behavior, moral or not.

    I wish folks would de-emphasize the procreation aspect of marriage when there are far better arguments. By this logic the infertile and elderly have no place in marriage. The 4,000+ year definition...
