Jmichael, x, and anyone who read it...I was referring to comments that slur every religious person,Read More and religion in general. Their are religious people that are truly asinine and repulsive. My point as some just stated above, lets not call it all bad because of a few. I am going to rewrite the blog, to make it more coherent. Thanks for your wanting to clarify, and I will as well......

ok, well.....I'll make this simple. 830 comments, and I am not going to make any groundbreakingRead More news. However, a simple self-check for some. Their are always going to be people who we agree, or disagree, love, loathe, and more. While some comments made points that we can learn from, their are many comments that have no point other than throwing mud. I am not immune to such. I understand the feelings, and might understand why. When we see the worst of the worst on TV who are yelling at funerals, and telling others they are damned to burn forever just because they are gay, it stirs emotions. I don't like that either. However, the 90% of Christians we never hear from are pretty much like everyone else, just trying to find some peace. Most believe as they go to church, and many just hope their is a heaven and feel good just going to church. Some go because everyone else in the house goes. Some, silently do good human work helping others in need, never broadcasting how they help. This 90% are not your enemies. God is not your enemy. The ones who made comments grouping all religious people, and/or religions as bad, yet claim it is for the intolerance of religion..........are taking the 10% and burdening 100% of believers. THAT is the definition of intolerance. -------lets be clear-----You can't take 10% of something, and smear 100% in the name of tolerance------. While most on both sides here will claim to aspire tolerance, we all have our own quirks that can push us over the edge and claim all of one group is bad. Their are only a few that have the majority of the disparaging posts. And in the spirit of that, I acknowledge that a few commenters made the majority of mud throwing.

What's a "first responder"? Is it an EMT? A police officer? A firefighter? Or is it aRead More "homeland security" word? Are there "second responders"? Third responders? No offense to EMT's or firefighters, but I think these "security", fear-based words need to stop being used and we return to the words we used to use before some of us went insane after 9/11.

At least they weren't called "Heroes". A term used way too much these days.

The term First Responder refers to an actual certification put forth by the D.O.T in 1995, CFR orRead More Certified First Responder. As the needs of our communities grew exponentially so did the training by your community volunteers as EMT is now the standard certification. The term First Responder is still used as a generic term to describe the prehospital care providers that respond to a scene, usually describing police, ambulance and fire responders. The reason that term is still used is because even during a routine call all three sometimes respond in conjunction with another and saying First Responders is easier than specifically cherry picking what services responded to a call. Not sure how you drew the conclusion that First Responder was a post 9-11 fear derived term, but the assertion is not a correct one.
