Re: “Five Names For Your Irish Pub That Aren't Milestone

Jayzus, such a fuss over a pub name. Now I hope he keeps it just to piss everyone off. That's about the punkest thing you can possibly do.

Re: “Question the Queen City: Pinewood Cemetery

George W. Miller was very likely the half brother of R.M. Miller Jr., and a son of R.M. Miller. Census records list him as "mulatto", and he came to Charlotte with the Miller family in 1866. He was president of the Neptune Volunteer Fire Company, which was housed in quarters owned and operated by R.M. Miller SR. He was known by some as NEPTUNE GEORGE. As R.M. Miller JR was associated with D.A. Tompkins, I can only imagine his unfortunate reluctance to acknowledge their kinship.

Re: “Five Names For Your Irish Pub That Aren't Milestone

When I moved here from NY, and opened my first Queen City establishment, we actually had to submit our future restaurant's name to discover other businesses with the same name, obviously we wanted to insure there was no other local biz DBA as Lulu.. has he NOT done this, or did he just go, "fuhgidabowdit?"
It's a bad look, but unfortunately? The Chads of Dilworth and other condhole dwellers won't care either. Great article, Erin, unfortunate it had to be written.

Re: “Five Names For Your Irish Pub That Aren't Milestone

Man it seems like I grew up at the milestone, mainly because they were a bit lax on carding people back in the day (1970s) In high school we would go hang out there every week . ... if we couldn't get in we just sat in the parking lot gettin high and listening to the bands. I saw RHCP when they were still a punk band, I saw R.E.M and the B-52s before they broke big. Hat's off to Bill Flowers . ... the Milestone is a cultural landmark every bit as valid as CBGB . .... and no, you can't use the name for your new yuppie bar I only wish GG Allin were still alive so he could go take a shit on top of the bar in your new "pub" jus sayin

Re: “Police Investigate Hate Crime in East Charlotte

If you would really read my comment, you can plainly see that I am mocking CL for putting the comment in the article. I know they would never say that if the arsonist was a white person.

Re: “Police Investigate Hate Crime in East Charlotte

What's 'confusing' about this? The black man who committed the arson and left the note was pretending the act and note were done by someone white. He's clearly racist against the store owner AND racist against white people. Why is this so hard for you to figure out?

Re: “Police Investigate Hate Crime in East Charlotte

I have never heard of someone who has committed a "hate crime" called a "confused young man". Why was this term used for this particular case?

Re: “Steven Furtick of Elevation: What a surprise - another loaded preacher

I normally don't get involved in little debates like this, and I want to preface my statement by saying it is not my place to judge someone's heart before God. Furtick will have to answer to the Lord IF he has mishandled what was entrusted to him by the LORD. But no where in Scripture is a big house a sin. Actually when you read through most of the Old Testament, there were many leaders who were very rich! As you read through Proverbs and Psalms, it speaks of the riches that belong to the righteous. From my understanding, Furtick is a very, very generous person. Not only does there church give away millions, but he personally is known to give well above 10% of his finances and has been tithing ever since he was a poor kid in high school. Could it be that the Lord has fulfilled his promise of Malachi 3? To compare Furtick to Grahm is not right. And if Furtick is seeking the praise of men, then that will be his reward as Jesus himself spoke of. I have listened to just about everyone of Furticks message series at the end of the year where he collects an expansion offering for the church. And I have never heard him beat anyone up for not giving, but have only heard him encourage people with the freedom they will receive from being generous, and the blessings that come with giving. I have never felt like he has preached a prosperity gospel. I do think it is jacked up to take a 1 minute clip of a message and draw an entire conclusion. Isn't that what most false teachers do? Listen to the whole message in order to get the context, don't just jump to conclusions based on a clip. The last question I will ask to all those who are upset with Furticks house, and criticize his finances: Are you Biblically giving to the local church and handling your finances perfectly the way God has commanded? If you are perfectly handling your finances, then as a Believer, help others handle theirs, instead of criticizing. If your not perfect with your finances, then maybe look inwardly, before making accusations outwardly. Thanks for letting me be apart of this convo!!
