"It's not banging anybody over the head with anything," said librarian Betty Lawson.


That happens after little Bobby goes to bed.

Naw, it's taller than it is wide, still pretty square.

Gallant helps his new neighbors Kip and Richard unload the moving truck.

Goofus spray paints "AIDS FAGOTS GET OUT" [sic] on their garage door and turfs their front lawn.

I dunno...those two examples aren't really mutually exclusive.

Gallant accepts his moral and intellectual limitations and embraces his life as a wealthy game show host.

My two children have a subscription (Highlights for the older one, "Hi-Five", their pre-K magazine, for the younger one) from my mom.  It was nice to have different short stories to read to them every month.

I agree. If god is your ultimate judge, why do the religious types always want to get up in your grill about who you're sleeping with?

From the creators of Orange is the new Black and Pinky in the Stinky. A new series Finger in the Dyke... Where a girl from the Netherlands befriends a Dutch woman....

That's what I've always thought. If God is going to judge someone for who they sleep with, that's between them and God; none of my business whatsoever.

I instead do what Jebus said, and love my neighbour.

They still produce Highlights magazine? I was under the impression the same 25 year old magazines were just recycled from office to office in perpetuity.

You know, that doesn't matter. Even Jesus believed that ugly people needed lovin' too.

I'd be lying if I said that I never did the Double Check section as an adult while sitting in my Dentist's office.

our mission to help children become their best selves and understand that all families, including theirs, are important.


*sigh* This is what's wrong with our country. Everybody has to be special and important. Odds are though, you are not special. Your kids are not special. They aren't important. You aren't important. I'm not important. All we are is dust in the wind, baby.
 
2017-01-11 10:44:38 AM  
Even as a child I concluded that Highlights was only good for the Hidden Pictures. The rest was the kind of stuff kids find unbearably boring but adults think kids will love.

1) To prove how "godly" they are
2) Because they "love" their neighbour too much to let them go to hell

Either way, they're delusional farkheads. Any kind of god that makes same-sex activity a sin and then either makes some people attracted to the same sex or allows Satan/demons/Voldemort/etc. to make people attracted to the same sex is a sadistic prick. Such a god, assuming he/she is omnipotent, would have the power to make everyone straight, but explicitly chooses not to.

That can get you into trouble with her husband.

Most of those folks interpret the "judge not lest ye be judged..." bit as an admonishment against hypocrisy and really take that "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" stuff to heart.

It's called free will.

I've been making lame puns since Ceeps was knee-high to Billy Barty, well I mean he's still knee-high to Billy Barty so that was a weak analogy.

What I'm trying to say is I have been not funny for a long long long period of time.

When I was in med school in the early 2000s I found a copy from 1985 in our peds department. I pointed it out to my staff doctor and he said "so what, it's new to them."
I'm sure there would have been a story on a girl with a Soviet pen pal that wouldn't make any sense.

We don't really need to go even that far, omnipotence is an oxymoron.

Could an all powerful god create a rock so heavy that he could not lift it?
If an all knowing god truthfully says that you have free will then then the god is not all knowing.
