Popular Opinion: C18H27NO3: Is this the story in which god crashed the family car giving the mother an unrecoverable brain injury and making it so the father is unfit to be a father and then moving the children into homes where they were abused only to be moved to another home that they would again be abused and then ultimately having the girl work as a waitress only to be given a small amount of money and told to thank the deity that caused all this to happen in the first place?

i think the answer you are looking for is:
god doesn't cause these things to happen, or "allow" them to happen.
god might give people the strength to overcome these things, or motivate people in some way to help others and embrace them like family. if course it could just be kindness, but that is what god is. god isn't some dude that looks like charleton heston, god is kindness, charity, love....


You're obviously a lunatic if you actually believe any of that bullshiat. I mean seriously, get help. If you're simply trolling then, "meh", no harm done.

GreenSun: This is why I tell people sob stories while showing an optimistic spirit, you never know who might fall for your stories and give you money.


Well, if you don't show them an optimistic spirit, they just call you whiny and an attention whore.

theslowblade: Have fun with that degree from Trinity Bible College.


The Trinity Colleges, like the name implies, are actually three campuses in one. The Trinity Bible College, the Trinity Barber College, and the Trinity Clown College.

John 1.4
 7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.


people get different things out of the new testament.
i believe the message is simply to love each other and treat others as you would have them treat you.

i don't think that is crazy.
crazy to expect selfish, self centered people to comprehend? absolutely.

Another reference to god being in our hearts.

TheOtherMisterP: Sorry for being cynical, but the story just seems a little too neat and perfect. It may just be poor writing on the part of the author, but it's hard to believe conversations like that would happen.


The tip: the reporter has not, apparently, even tried contacting Trinity for comment on whether they ever got such a check - even if only to say they can't comment on an individual student's tuition payment.

Classic too-good-to-check story. The editor deserves an ass kicking for not catching this.

Oh, it's that interpreting thing again. How convenient. This whole religion thing has played out well past its prime.
It didn't take me 9 years of catholic school (thanks mom and dad) to realize what a total crock of shiat it is. The only thing I gained from it was a much better general education that I wouldn't have had from public schooling. That's it.
To be honest I guess it helped me realize the perpetual scam going around but I'm sure I would have figured that much out no matter my circumstances.

Try to deflect. Typical. You know full well what I said.
If you actually do need help then I'm saying all religion is a scam. It's bullshiat propagated throughout generations to instill control of the masses and money to the maintainers. That's all it is, all it was, and all it ever will be until people grow the fark up and realize they've been had all this time.
You people are so sad.Yes, You People.
I find it rather easy to live a fulfilling life in which I'm also kind to other people without some rag telling me to do so.
I also think if I were on the level of your (oh yes, I'm going to say it) god then I think I would most likely NOT have suffering every single second of the day. Because that's what we have, people and animals suffering every single second of the day.
When I say that I don't think you actually appreciate what I mean when I say suffering. You can't even get past your fairy tales much less the horrible things that people endure. Go fark yourself.

I'm pathetic and miserable because why? All I did was say religion is a farce.
It might come off as a thorn in your side but I am in fact neither pathetic nor miserable.
If calling me that is part of being in your religion then I guess I'm going to have to plead ignorant of what you people decide is ok and not ok. After all, didn't god make me like he made other people that are against what you *cough* believe.
I would expect that he made everybody or am I wrong?
Perhaps there is someone even stronger than he, or equally strong but neither would make sense. If god were the big daddy of all things he wouldn't even have let that happen.
If you were the absolute supreme being in the history of all things real and unreal; you were the creator. You wouldn't even have to make such a thing as suffering.
But you did.
For that you can go fark yourself.
Obviously I don't mean you, I mean your imaginary friend.

Her mother never fully recovered from her brain injury, and her father wasn't fit to be a father.
They endured abuse there for years, said Abigail's older sister, Sydnie Murphy. That foster father is still in prison.

I don't think there's any tax problem here.

Who pays the gift tax?
"The donor is generally responsible for paying the gift tax."

How many annual exclusions are available?
"$14,000 on or after January 1, 2013"


Yeah, but tips aren't generally considered gifts, but rather income... Given how they split up the checks separately from the official tip, maybe a case could be made for it being a gift instead, but I wouldn't put it past the IRS to dispute that...
