  • Why can public schools preach Scientology but not Christianity?

    I lost my job due to the pandemic and had to transfer my son from a private Christian school to a public one. I asked the school district to enroll him in the Christian curriculum, but they told me they aren't allowed to endorse any religions. Well, guess what happened today? I checked on my son during his remote learning session, and they were teaching him to believe in Scientology. The lesson was about vaccinations, "trials," and other Scientology jargon. I immediately closed the video and gave my son the rest of the day off. Our family does not believe in that nonsense, and I shudder to think of how much worse my son's autism would be if we had vaccinated him. Why are public schools allowed to preach Scientology but not Christianity?

  • What are some Halloween costume ideas for dressing as a liberal?

    I just started a new job and my boss asked me to ride on the company's float during our town's semi-annual Halloween parade! I want a costume that is both funny and scary, so I've decided to dress up like a liberal. I have a shirt with the Russian flag (hammer and sickle), a cape I made from a half-burned American flag, a Bible with "Quran" written over it in Sharpie (I couldn't find a real one), and a graduation cap. Do you have any ideas or thoughts about what I have so far? Please don't suggest anything related to abortion... this is a family-friendly parade.

  • Is it safe to run the microwave without any food inside?

    My mom started making me do my own laundry now that I am taking my college classes online. I forgot my clothes in the dryer a few times and she got really annoyed for some reason. The dryer is in our kitchen, so I started running the microwave without any food inside for about 45 minutes in order to hear the timer as a reminder to get my clothes. She got super mad at me, said I'm "destroying the kitchen," and told me to "just use my phone." Is there actually anything wrong with using the microwave as a timer? She is an older Boomer who struggles with technology, so I assume this is simply an anxiety attack. I even tried explaining to her that the dryer is from 2005 and couldn't possibly have a phone app because the first iPhone came out in 2007... good grief.

  • How do I convince my wife that our family doctor was being unprofessional and gave her a fake diagnosis?

    During a recent checkup with our family doctor, my wife described having cramps, fatigue, and headaches. She can be a bit of a hyperchondriac and asked the doctor if she might have covidvirus. The doctor rolled his eyes and said, "that sounds like a classic case of herpititis 3" before leaving the examination room. Now the situation is out of control and my wife is having audible meltdowns about "genital herpes" while I'm on work calls. My coworkers giggle every time I log on for meetings and it's utterly humiliating. I tried telling my wife that the doctor was just annoyed by her questions, but she keeps insisting that I cheated on her and this is all my fault. How can I get her behavior under control and convince my coworkers that I don't have herpes?

  • Did i hurt my eye looking at the sun?

    my friend from work told me about the solar ellipse last weekend but she said not to watch it without eye protection. ive been working from home the last few months while recovering from an eye injury (dont ask) so i wanted to be extra careful... but my vision in my other eye has been dim/spotty since monday

    i didnt have time to order the special 3d glasses for the solar ellipse, so i mixed some spf 70 sunblock with eye drops and put a few drops in 15 minutes early... it was really bright, so i also wore sunglasses to be extra safe. that should be enough protection right? its really hard to see now because my other eye is still bandaged

  • How can I save my daughter from rejecting God?

    My six-year-old daughter figured out that Santa isn't real last Christmas when she recognized my wife's handwriting on the gift tags. She is very mature for her age and seemed to take this realization in stride.

    Today our daughter decided to spray two cans of Pam all over our kitchen floor and lured our cat onto it with a laser pointer. Apparently the cat skidded full-speed into a mop, which then knocked several glasses off the counter and they smashed on the floor. My wife had to clean shards of glass off a floor that was nearly impossible to stand on. We're not happy right now.

    We punished our daughter by taking her toys from Christmas away. She threw an absolute fit and smashed a window out with a lamp. When we told her that she had to honor my wife and I according to the Ten Commandments, she looked at us and said, "God is just Santa for older kids. I'm not falling for that again."

    What can we do? I fear she may reject the grace of God because she thinks it's merely a tactic for controlling people's behavior.

  • We're concerned with our adult son's behavior. What can we do?

    My wife and I dedicated our adult lives to protecting our son from the evils of this world. We took him to Church twice a week, home schooled him, and installed an internet pornography filter on the family computer. He recently turned 18, and now we fear he's straying from the path of righteousness.

    On his 18th birthday, we purchased him his first smartphone so he can play with friends without our supervision. Shortly afterward, he started spending a lot of time with a girl who lives down the street. We began to grow concerned, so we decided to keep an eye on them today.

    The two of them spent hours walking around together with their phones. Sometimes they looked confused, spinning around with their arms outstretched. Other times they appeared alarmed and ran into strange places, still clutching their phones. It was very unnatural and erratic behavior, but we followed them the whole afternoon and they didn't drink any alcohol or drugs.

    At one point, I heard our son claim they had successfully "expanded blue territory" and the girl responded by saying she was "very proud of him." My wife said she heard them speaking in code, like "we're going to run these eggs!" I'm worried they're using hacker software on their phones to mark territory for a gang associated with blue. The only gang in blue we allow him to support is the police... I really hope this gang isn't related to Liberals. What can we do?

  • Do you think faith will drive the Republicans to victory?

    I'm watching the GOP primary debate and noticed the candidates worship the Constitution in a similar way as the Bible. Is their strong faith what makes them such good leaders?

  • Why haven't we solved the vaccine problem yet?

    I watch the news every night, and I still see segments about vaccines causing autism in children. There is no need for this nonsense in modern society. This is supposed to be the era of healthcare reform, and sometimes I feel like I'm surrounded by fools. Whatever happened to common sense? Why haven't these overpaid doctors figured out that you have to give kids the autism vaccine before the other ones?

  • Is one Apple Watch enough?

    We all know the Apple Watch is the future, but is one really enough? The battery lasts less than a day, so what if I want to go hiking for a weekend and track my miles? I'm thinking it will take at least two watches to accomplish this. Luckily it will be easier than carrying both my iPhones because I have two wrists.

  • Why do blind people like walking dogs so much?

    Have you ever noticed blind people are always out walking dogs? That seems like a really bad idea. Dogs often run into the street, and if their owners are blind, it's more like the dog is walking them...

  • What should I do with my proof that God exists?

    On my bus ride home from school today, I noticed a new billboard with an ad for some electronic cigarette. I pulled out my iPhone to take a picture so I could remember which brand to buy, and just as I snapped the photograph, I witnessed a miracle! The sign changed into a message from God! Here is my photographic proof that God spoke to me: http://i.imgur.com/ythfI.jpg

    How should I spread His message to the world? It must mean something, but I don't think I should tell my mom because she's a woman...

  • How early should I arrive for an interview?

    I had an interview for a call center position a few weeks ago, but I didn't get the job. Apparently it's because of when I arrived to the interview. You're supposed to get there early, so I went on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. Apparently that wasn't early enough. Should I have gone on Monday?

    So I just watched that Noah movie and I'm really confused about something. It's based on the Bible, which is a historical account of what happened during the flood. But where did Noah keep the fish? There surely wasn't enough space in the ark to keep two of each species...
