So the name Chris bugs you? I make fun of my atheist brother all the time for naming his kid Chris. He just liked the name.

Patronizing the downs kid because you're dumb enough to believe he won't figured it out.  He's smart enough to know what you're doing and he is letting you do it because it makes you feel good.

Instead of saying 'thank you', the woman at the deli at my grocery store says, "have a blessed day."  I am perfectly competent person.  I can get through my day without 'blessings'.

I haven't seen the video, but I'll assume that his play looked a lot better than the shiat show from the Vikings @ Giants Monday night game earlier this week.

I hope they did a neck xray on him before letting him play.
Down can cause problems with the odontoid and any slight injury from sports can cause paralysis or death.

We do clearances here for the special olymics athletes here, before they can participate.

Seriously I got called a bigot last night because of my views on religion and even I wouldn't care about that interaction. Not even a little bit.

I'm atheist and that doesn't bother me... nor does "merry Christmas" or "bless you" or "I'll pray for you."

Start preaching to me after i tell you Im not into religion and... "screw you"... but offer me a pleasantry from your believed superstition and its a "thank you for the heartfelt message".

Religion is only a problem when it is used to judge someone or is unwelcomlely pushed on me.

Those are popular common names. As opposed to Josiah, Ezekiel or Josephus. See the difference? Mark is common, Issiah is not. Issiah is overt.


Since West Wing, Josiah has become a lot more popular.  Of course, I liked the name Josiah long before it was cool.

/Josiah is one of those O.T. kings who Christians really like for the fact that he was the last "good" king.  However, there's a new school of thought that says that he's the one who commissioned Deuteronomy to be written.

Sure, jone lifetime would likely be significantly longer than the other, but both moments would last for one lifetime.

It's not the names I have an issue with you moran, It's the more than likely parents that are douchebags. I don't give a flip if your name is Ezekiel or Travon. It's just a name.
