““If it has ‘Disney’ on it and says it’s for kids, you better watch what it is, parents, because they can no longer be trusted as a family source for entertainment.”

Not like back in the 40s, when we had wholesome entertainment that taught kids only good things... like in Song of the South. Or the 80s, when girls were taught to change everything about who they are to please a man in The Little Mermaid...”

“I don't know why The Little Mermaid gets so much hate on this subject. She wants to be human and experience their world before even knowing about the prince. He is just that extra push she needed to do what she wanted in the first place.”

“It's true that there is absolutely no right or wrong in comedy, just funny or not funny. But that only defines what is or is not comedy. It does not define what type of comedy it is. Just because a jokes i offensive, racist, sexist, transphobic, or homophobic doesn't mean it isn't a joke. But just because it's a joke doesn't mean that it isn't offensive, racist, sexist, transphobic, or homophobic.”

Ellen could have used much better comedy than what she delivered.”

MrObvious72 on Mar 3, 2014 at 14:30:15

“Thank you. People calling the joke "disrespectful" are forgetting the definition of comedy. It is the absence of respect. You can't really have comedy and "respect" at the same time. Respectful people don't make fun of people, which is pretty much the job of the Oscars' host. You can feel sorry for Liza, but she's a big girl and I'm sure she's heard worse. As for everyone else, grow up.”

“Yes, it was God that saved you. Not the surgeons. Not the years of experience they had. Not the skill they had. Oh, they told your family to prepare for the worst in a case where the worst was a very likely outcome? What monsters, not coddling your family and giving them false hope.

Had it been just a random, unskilled person off the streets that had done something they had no idea how to do and managed to save your life... THEN you might have some traction. Saying that someone who spent years and hundreds of thousands of dollars in school to learn the process that saved you, then even more years refining their skills and gaining experience through direct application did not save your life, but that it was God working through them and He was moving their hands is extremely insulting to the people who saved your life.

Give credit where credit is due. Humans saved you. Not God.”

Mike Lazar on Feb 19, 2014 at 22:18:39

“In countries where the Christian god is not known, like Japan, such "miracles" occurs. Is there a Christian explanation for that? Funny, I've known some surgeons where I worked, mostly atheists. Is it a coincidence that atheism is higher among people with higher level of education?”

“I forgot to mention (Although you probably won't believe me) that when I came to about 2 months later and spoke to my surgeon, his exact words was this: "You are nothing short of a miracle."

This coming from one of the best neurosurgeons in my region, who, like you say, has spent thousands of dollars learning the craft and has many years of experience. Now, I'm not saying the surgeon is not skilled in what he does for a living, but when he says something like that, not to mention the dream I had when I was in my coma, in which I was fishing with God, something tells me this isn't just another life that was saved by an extremely talented surgeon. But hey, what do I know, right? I'm just a Jesus freak!

Sorry for the late response, long day!”
