#MAC. Do Latter Day Saints really believe that God turned the Indians skin red because theyRead More slaughtered the original native Americans?

No, Alex. We believe God led (or inspired) various families, groups and individuals to come to HisRead More "Promised" or "chosen" land, reserved for a righteous people. The first family group thus described in the "Book of Mormon" as "led" by God, to what came to be known as the Americas, was the family of Lehi. Younger son Nephi and others were obedient to God's commands and blessed, while his brother Laman (and others) were lazy, jealous, disobedient and warred against the Nephites. God did not want the righteous Nephites to intermarry with the wicked Lamanites, so he cursed the latter with dark skin so that they would be visibly distinguished and separate.------------------------------------------- If you have more questions, please ask a Mormon friend, or invite Mormon missionaries in to answer them. Many FAQs are also on the website: www.mormon.org

Really, really tired of stories like these. Vaccines prevent more disease than they cause. EverRead More seen a baby coughing its head off because mom didn't vaccinate it? Croup is bad enough, but whooping cough? Just cruel to diss your kid by opting out.

Actually, Wakefield also patented his own vaccine, but it would only be picked up and sold if heRead More found a way to discredit MMR, which he tried to do in his paper. In 2010 both an ethics review board and parents of children in Wakefields study found that he completely falsified information to get the results he wanted, did painful experiments on children without approval from the hospital, and even bought blood samples from kids at his sons birthday party. Out of the 12 kids in the study, 5 had preexisting autism (he did not report this), and 3 of 9 children the study claimed had regressive autism didn't have autism at all. All of this information is openly available to the public and proven by courts and committees who investigated the issue. In the early 80's, before widespread immunization, Measels killed 2.6 MILLION a year. Nowadays it has dropped to approximately 100,000. That's a big deal.

Cesar Milan is a bully, he is not a certified dog trainer....pit bulls exceed most other breeds inRead More temperament tests. ANY breed of dog can bite given the right conditions. To link up with a site that hates a breed is very irresponsible of The Patch. People should learn how to treat, train and socialize all dogs. A pit bull is not a demon, they are a dog, they have lived in The White House, as the first decorated war dog hero for saving his unit, used as service dogs, Helen Keller's favorite seeing eye dog, owned by countless movie stars and many loving families, as therapy dogs and drug dogs for law enforcement. The pittie is was known as the nanny dog because of their good natures. They do not make good guard dogs, human aggression has been bred out of them that is why thugs try to use them to fight. Educate yourself on dogs, I'm sick of defending them to people who are easy to judge without any real knowledge....many of these sensational attacks are different breeds, many people wouldn't know a pit bull from many other breeds. Big head, oh must be a pit. Educate yourself these dogs die in shelters every day because of ignorance. Why is this even in the Lower Moreland Patch, this is not national news! Do yourself a favor and read about dogs and warning signs before spouting off. Most dogs will only bite as a last defense, it is their only defense, there are very few unsound dogs compared to bad owners and foolish people. A pit bull is simply a dog. A good family breed if you do your homework.
Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?

In my experience, the people who have the most to say against other people's shortcomings are peopleRead More who have not experienced many trials in their life. They've never had the opportunity to hope for the compassion they're so willing to withhold from others who need it.

And the Bible says.....take the log out of your own eye so that you can see well enough to take theRead More speck out of your brother's eye. It also says not to judge, or you will be judged; and the measure by which you judge will be measured to you. Since Christie Nicole believes in the judgment day....it's gonna suck to be you!

Mr. Miller, really? "most preposterous,stupid,story I have ever seen on Patch" or is thisRead More this a case of someone putting on blinders saying the, "the deplorable condition of the Morpurgo house," is OK with me. Everyone who walks up those Library steps will look at the neglect, inaction, and DISGRACE of aiming so many resources, fundraisers, and speeches to rehabilitate one edifice while ignoring a building that may collapse any moment next door injuring anyone perhaps walking to or leaving the Library. Ignoring Morpurgo is the "most preposterous,stupid "thing the library planners did.
Stephen M. Miller Jr. April 19, 2014 at 11:23 am
The John Jermain Library does not own the deplorable,unsightly,dangerous,Morpurgo property and isRead More not responsible for it's upkeep or safety.Perhaps the Sag Harbor Code Enforcement Officer should get involved and try to solve the problem? I am still confused as to why you feel the Library should use it's resources to rehabilitate a building it does not own. Why don't you start a foundation,raise the money necessary to purchase the property,and donate it to the library. As I stated previously a stupid,preposterous story..
T.J. Clemente April 19, 2014 at 12:20 pm
Mr. Miller, you are most likely a fine man, and you have now finally arrived at the heart of theRead More issue. When you say do I feel the "Library should use it's resources to rehabilitate a building," of course you know those resources were the community's resources, collected by "very good people" for the good purpose of preserving the quality of the Library for future generations…..The disgrace is the sight walking up the stairs. The Library planners by narrowing the scope to ignore the Morpurgo situation diminished their successful effort. Not my problem, not a library problem, ignores the truth, something should have been done and with all the money that was used and raised "by the community." Something could have been done, but instead the focus was narrowed to just the library and not what is decaying right there along side the newly spent millions. It was/is necessary to purchase the building, but someone decided to ignore that fact. That is the DISGRACE. I only wrote this when I stood there in front of the library to see the magnificent job and saw what EVERYONE will see.

Fake Boss Hogg. Kinda funny coming from a guy that picked "Almost Brilliant" as a handleRead More a week ago...

This guy is psycho I see all negative posts on this breed. Us all who are for the breed let's postRead More positive things. This guy has no life obviously to sit and pick apart a breed. My dad was a meter reader in the day he was attacked and bitten 9 times on different occasions. 2 of them were German sheps, rest were ankle biters. ALL dogs bite. My parents were ignorant with pit bulls I remember my neighbors bf had them in my yard when I was a kid and my moms screaming they are vicious get inside. (They were sweet dogs) that goes with them being uneducated about the breed. They witnessed my neighbors pit mauling the neighbors small dog (their dog was nice until the crack heads put him in a cage 24/7) they are like till recently they are dangerous blah blah blah and know what I educated them I now rescued a pit lab who is a big baby and whom my parents adore. I cross post animals all over and many are pit bulls. They say 1 of 600 finds homes. It's sad cause in my dad's years of meter reading not one pit bull attacked him. 2 days in a row I saw 2 pits running in and out of traffic on a main road by my house. Almost hit them. I got out of my car called them over (had no fear as if it were a smaller dog or a shep) they came to me I grabbed their collars and what did they do? They licked me. I'm in school to be an nj Animal control officer and an associates in vet tech and I can bet you in my life I will support the pit breed in some successful way. I will never hate the breed or judge them. I've got bitten by a smaller dog breed do I judge them? No. So educate before you discriminate
