Re: “Boise Police Investigating Burning of Gay Pride Flag

Burn the American flag, your all good.
Burn a gay pride flag, your going to hang!
WTF! I have nothing against one's life choices but one act can't be called free speech and the other a hate crime.

I'm sure that lacing poison across the valley is a great way to kill everything and anything it touches.
Mark the date folks, as nothing good will come of this.

Re: “The Nasty God

Dear Bill,

Thanks for your insightful opinion piece.

I identify as an evangelical but did not vote for Trump. While some of your claims about evangelical motives for their voting practices seem a bit excessive, I do think you're onto something by pointing to the theory of depravity as at the core of many evangelical perspectives.

I also think that you were right to point to the view of God as "nasty" as a further frame for prompting the voting patterns of many of my fellow evangelicals.

I will be quoting your opinion piece favorably in my upcoming lectures.

In appreciation,

Re: “The Nasty God

This article is speaking out of true and complete ignorance! Evangelicals came out in droves to keep Hillary out of office. They knew she would put up an anti-constitution Supreme Court pick, just as Obama did..
You don't judge the many for the mistakes of a few. The Word of God is becoming more and more true with every passing day! Your ignorance astounds me!

Re: “The Nasty God

Trump is an offensive idiot but Hillary was not any better. Pick your poison. As an evangelical I can attest that most of us saw right through the Bakkers and their ilk. I would agree with Franklin Graham that God's hand was in Trump getting elected but only because God is sovereign and sometimes He lets bad things happen to teach us. See Pharaoh. That fact that He got elected does not mean He was favored by God. Why do you care so much Bill? Why the constant attacks on Christians? Look in the mirror. Maybe you're not all that perfect either.

States can make just about any law they want concerning alcohol per the amendment that ended prohabition as long as the law is enforced evenly.

Re: “i48 Film Competition and Showcase

Unless you belong to the "in-crowd" - dont expect to win.
Ya, the shade stems from the judges selecting a short, in 2010, from a group (...of thieves) that, LITERALLY, stole the Comedy Central "Drunk History" bit.
No "kinda resembled a little bit like the CC series.." - it was an absolute theft.

2010 - "The Assassination of Julius Caesar" look it up on their page.

i48 ppl are clowns.

And, NO its not sour grapes. The groups I participated in have won Best Picture, Best Actress, etc.
After the 2010 event, we stepped.
How can you PAY to participate in an event that would allow that?

(ps - if this comment is still up, BW has not yet censored it.)

Re: “The Nasty God

Might it be that evangelicals voted for the profane Trump, because the alternative was the pathologically-dishonest, commie/socialist reptile-eyed Hillary Clinton? (Just speaking for myself, and I'm NOT an "evangelical," but she is the ONLY reason I held my nose with one hand while voting Trump with the other.) Since Cope is a commie/socialist himself, I can understand why he DOESN'T understand.

^ What Mike said. You're barking up the wrong tree. Shoot the city council an email and ask what Boise does to fight homelessness.

Re: “Curbside Compost Bins Rolling Toward Boise Households

Won't compost from grass clippings in this town be laden with herbicides? That includes compost from the City's herbicide-doused Parks. I would not use Boise City compost, given the chemical application craziness that goes on in this town.

Re: “Curbside Compost Bins Rolling Toward Boise Households

Should I leave my compost/mulch pile in my backyard or let the government pick it up for me? And increase my trash collection by 40%? The government thinks it has all the solutions. When in reality all they want to do is charge you for moving the compost pile thus increasing the carbon footprint. Sorry but government seldom has a good solution.

Benj-
Please read the article. The building owner is to blame. They didn't renew the lease so another business is going to fill the space.

So taking one of the few places that homeless people could hide from the summer sun for free, filling it with jagged rocks and some hastily thrown together metal letters is "art," huh?

Re: “Boise Bowling Alley 20th Century Lanes to Close After 57 Years on State Street

A skating business, much like a bowling alley depends much on neighborhood demographics and that neighborhood is not getting any younger. I doubt that a skating rink will last 57 years but business is business and getting the most out of your investment is the right thing for the landlord to do. Just keep churning the property and get the most that you can out of entrepreneurs with big dreams and a healthy down payment.
