Love the sinner, hate the sin. What people do is their business but when the govt gets involved, andRead More forces me to accept certain behavior my faith tells me is wrong, then they are overstepping. Radical homosexuals will not stop pushing it until they can force my church to perform the ceremony. That is wrong. It is unconstitional. But it is what they are working towards. That is why I am against the govt putting their stamp of approval on it because it ultimately WILL infringe upon my rights.

The poster at 7:07 is willfully ignorant and is blatantly comparing the History of My Ancestors toRead More further a political agenda. To use The Bible as a weapon in your assault on civilization and to compare the Slavery of Blacks to a lifestyle of unnatural and unsustainable proportions is indefensible and incomprehensible. My race and my gender are scientifically irrefutable, the same will never be equal for your choices. You will reap what you sow.

To the selfish, self-entitled, anti-progress, archaic thinkers who try to use Christ as an excuseRead More for their ignorance: Do you really think God likes that? I don't. Christ was all about progress, love and open arms. The brilliance of our Christian founding fathers, most specifically Thomas Jefferson, who I quote below, recognized this and implemented it in the development of our great nation: "I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." I think you all might feel a little better about yourselves if you loved everyone, as God does. Not just accept - but love.

Finally, a return (even if just for one day) of what Patch used to be. I subscribed to Patch backRead More when it started because it used to be so upbeat, positive and focused on local news (most of which was good news). In the past year, and in my observation, Patch seems to have been taken in by the "sensationalism" that comes with "bad news". Hey, I know where to find the "bad news"! Why not try to keep Patch upbeat and positive like it used to be?

Just a bit of feedback. I became interested in your patch site a while back because it was a greatRead More place for local stories. I never see that anymore... Everything is regional now. I can get that easier and better from AJC or GDP. Please go back to focusing on Dacula.

The Holy Bible I read does not support the statement of JMichael. Guess that person has not read itRead More all from Genesis to Revelations, The Old Testament does have over 800 laws. The New Testament which presents the first (& second-final") coming of Jesus Christ

shows The Lord Jesus Christ teaching and uplifting women. men are told to love their wives even asRead More Jesus Christ loves the church. Am sick of people blaming The Holy Bible i.e. God Almighty and His Only Begotten Son Jesus for warped thinking. The Holy Bible, in its entirety, shows that The Lord Jesus Christ defends women. Look at the women Jesus defends. Not giving the chapter , book etc because I think one should read the whole Bible, and find the truth. Had to get thst said before commenting on the article by that person without any sense. Of course he should be with his wife when she gives birth to their child. Of course he should put the family before the job. I hope he takes the day off on his childs birthday, next year. He probably works to support his family. It is irrelevant the occupation.
