they would like him there. Christ what an asshole,

Dear God, enough is enough. I pray the NEW NORMAL is one based on love. And compassion. And patience. And yes, fearing God Almighty and doing our best to understand and follow His word. The Bible. The 10 Commandments. I pray that Kansas and America returns to a NEW NORMAL where the laws WE mere mortals write are consistent with the teachings of Jesus.

WWJD? obviously kick the kid in the nuts

As President Lincoln, our beautiful Nation - founded on God while fully respecting and protecting freedom of religion - will NEVER be brought down from the outside.

Is he doing a Lincoln impersonation here or did he just accidentally a word with something that Lincoln never actually said?

That guy is either on some serious drugs or desperately needs to be put on serious drugs.

That statement wouldn't be any more crazy if it had "but I didn't kill that hooker, she ODed on drugs she took before we hooked up. I don't thing I should have to pay for that." in it.

That was... something. Not at all surprising to see that he has a massive Christian persecution complex. Mixed in some whataboutism, too, which was nice.

At first I was really pissed off at the guy, but having read his statement, I think he was totally justified. We all  must kick kids in the balls for Jesus, otherwise the liberals win.

sooo... The Guy kicked the kid in the groin and assaulted him because the guy is Pro-Life?
That was a twist I was not expecting.

/and possibly ironic that the kid may now no longer be able to have kids?

Was Wednesday unorthodox? Absolutely. Did I intend to hurt a soul or act for a single moment out of rage, animosity, or any other element of battery? Absolutely not. I honest to God love all His children. That's what Jesus teaches. I'm not trying to sound preachy. But how else do you tell the truth and speak about the Bible? I don't know. I'm doing my best folks, and I am genuinely sorry for any pain or confusion this may cause anyone. But I will put my hand on the Bible right now and swear that I didn't do anything wrong. Those kids are the LAST people on the planet I would ever do anything to intentionally hurt. I've known most of them for years, some for over a decade.

So you shoved and kicked a kid in the balls on accident?

His statement was bordering on word salad.

I'm sure he was a POS before, but I think the guy might also be only passingly familiar with reality at this point.

To the mental hospital with you.

This is the face of a slightly wonky clone of devin nunes, who'd clearly not just punch but bite your balls off if given the chance. He just seethes 'manic'.

I bit my tongue when he said it's not about him, that he'd rather be on a beach in Australia. But when he framed the controversy of an assault on a student as an assault on (his) Christianity as a whole, I was done reading. It goes without saying he had no business talking to the kids about what God wants or pretending that God speaks through him.

That's a statement from an elected official?!

And for those that don't know the original story:

One video allegedly shows Kansas state Rep. Mark Samsel asking students about their sex lives.
Another reportedly shows the Republican lawmaker pushing someone against a wall while working as a substitute teacher and warning, "I could put the wrath of God on you right now."

Yet another, reviewed by the Kansas City Star, allegedly captures the moments right after the legislator kneed a student in the crotch Wednesday. Samsel stands over the boy, the Star reported, and asks, "Did it hurt?" - then asks him why he's about to cry and queries a classmate: "Doyou want to check his nuts for him, please?"
"Class, you have permission to kick him in the balls," Samsel says at one point on video, according to the newspaper.

The Post obtained several short videos from families in the Wellsville district allegedly showing Samsel's behavior in the classroom.

"Make babies! Who likes makin' babies?" a male voice asks enthusiastically in one brief clip as a girl films her reaction. The video, which appears to have been postedto Snapchat, is captioned, "i literally hate it here" and "mark is being so gross." The speakers are off-camera.

"You haven't masturbated?" the male voice asks, and the girl's eyes widen. "Don't answer that question," he quickly adds.

"I'm not going to answer that question ... " someone answers.

"Thank you," the man responds. "I told you not to. ... God already knows it."

The Star reported Samsel seemed to fixate on one male student in footage from Wednesday, following and grabbing him on video and telling him, "You're about ready to anger me and get the wrath of God." He pushes the student, who runs away, according to the Star.

"You should run and scream," Samsel allegedly says, adding amid some laughter that the Devil is leaving his classroom.

A video shared with The Post shows a man pushing another person toward the wall in a room strewn with backpacks, speaking about the "wrath of God." The person runs away yelling.

Other video obtained by the Star reportedly captures Samsel telling students about a sophomore who tried to kill himself because he has two female parents.

"He's a foster kid," Samsel said, according to the newspaper. "His alternatives in life were having no parents or foster care parents who are gay. How do you think I'm going to feel if he commits suicide? Awful."

Samsel repeatedly mentions suicide as well as religion in class, according to the Star, which posted some of the audio. He asks a student about "listening to the devil's music," the Star reported, and urges people to "speak the Lord's name proudly."

The lawmaker can also be seen telling students to go outside and run while holding hands, the newspaper said.
"Do you think we want to do this?" Samsel reportedly said. "No, we had a lesson to do. Is it kind of funny? Yeah."

After watching the video, and reading the dude's rant, I think it's safe to say that this guy could be legitimately mentally ill.

"Some of us attend church on Sunday, some of us don't. But WE are all God-fearing people. In fact, my family voluntarily donated land to establish a beautiful church here in the outskirts of nowhere/somewhere the world will never stop to visit. We prefer it that way, because we are busy farming, teaching, hunting, and attending or watching as many sporting events as possible, from youth to high school to college to professional sports on the world stage (c'mon World Cup, KC would love to host you with our unbeatable Midwestern hospitality).

What happened in Wellsville on Wednesday? Only God knows.

I have my version. You have yours. The kids, as we discussed in each hour BEFORE 5th hour and then also at the beginning of 5th hour before anything "newsworthy" occurred, each as theirs.

So how do we find the Truth? It's probably not be listening to the yellers and the screamers, is it? Yet look how quickly they get headline news today. They come after everyone. Our educators, our law enforcement, our doctors and frontline workers, our judges and court personnel. They attack Christianity while calling for God to be removed from the classroom and cancelled or erased from American history and modern society."

Why no sexual assault charge; if the teacher 'was' gay, would there be?  I mean, if you punch a girl in the crotch, that's a sexual assault and battery charge; do the same to a guy and it's funny (watch any funny video show).

The TL;DR version:

Please keep all the prayers coming for healing, for Teddy, for mental health reform, for criminal justice reform, for the right balance of God to be allowed in our public places and schools. Because it's not there right now folks. The proof is in the pudding.
I'm off to church. Take care everyone. Let's Go Royals! clap, clap, clap clap clap.
