Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I love Facebook. If your attitude is one of condescension toward Facebook in general, move on there is nothing to see here. I love seeing pictures, quotes, odd stories, it is like being at a state fair.

But there are times when people get on my nerves. You can guess which ones. The flag waving, Bible toting, apple pie eating, sanctimonious conservatives who assume that their view of the world is universal.

I have only unfriended two people- angry, hateful, racist screeds. But on occasion I hide a post- even some from good friends. I am going to start posting those here, just so Kossacks can shake their fists at the sky.

This is my second outing with hidden Facebook. This one is classic false equivalency. The right love this kind of thing. Do you get this one? What comparison are they making? Check under the fold
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Ready? Picture #1- What do you see? People worshiping in a town square, as required by their religion?

Picture #2- What do you see? An athlete making a public display about his faith?

What do they see?
Picture #1 Potential terrorists demonstrating their blood lust by praying in defiance of Christian principles without any interference.

Picture #2 A young man risking persecution for boldly declaring his Christian faith.

We all look, but we don't see the same things. What is the connection between football and public prayer? You got me. Why is it an abomination for Muslims to follow the teaching of their faith? You got me.
