Well, I don't know why I even post this except for "why not". Allot of people are assholes. Real jerks. Is it so hard to just not be a judgemental prick? I know a few people have recently seen a side of me that they automatically define as "enemy". Because I will always jump to defend a country and people I love, and can see countless reasons to love.

Usually it is with a single person I take issue with over some hateful and retarded crap they spewed about my home and my people. Is it that when you guys see someone crapping on the US and anyone stands to defy them that the rest feel...

This is still breaking on Fox News right now... nothing online yet. Apparently a reporter was filling out some paperwork and a cop in front of him drew and fired at an armed man running away. The reporter saw a revolver on the ground next to the suspect. Edit to add link: "Baltimore police shot a man Monday in the same area where massive riots broke out last week over the death of Freddie Gray. It's unclear what prompted the shooting. A Fox News crew witnessed a young black male running from police before he was shot. It's not known whether the unidentified...

If the statement comes as a surprise, then that’s exactly the reason why the point needed to be re-emphasised. The full, balanced teaching is that Christ is God and man. “And was made man”, says the Nicene Creed....
