Cranston Commenters #1

The posts on this site, including all the Cranston Commenters posts, reflect the opinions of JT Eberhard, not the Secular Student Alliance.

The commenters in the Providence Journal article on the Cranston banner are a bunch of animals.  I’ve decided to dissect a bunch of them over the course of the next few days.  I just spent my lunch hour going through a bunch of them.  Enjoy.

Wake up RI says:

“Cranston – please appeal.

To the Court:

Uh…. so should we file a “Prayer for Relief” or not? We don’t want to harm the ACLU’s delicate sensibilities any further with historical jargon that has become meaningless except as polite introductory verbiage. Like in the banner.

The defendants should appeal.”

If the jargon is meaningless, why does it matter if it stays up?  Why should they waste money and time appealing if it’s meaningless?

Unless, of course, you don’t really think it’s meaningless.  This would make you a liar.
