Take a look at what readers are talking about around the state and join the conversation in the comments section below.


Cranston: "Hateful hypocritical "Christians" are the scum of the earth." — ELM, commenting on

Coventry: "Yeah because that's exactly what I want my kid doing, spending more time online!! seriously people, think. Kids barely pay attention in regular classes do you really think they are going to retain any information from online classes?" — harry balzonya, commenting on

East Greenwich: "Though they may have overreacted, it is a good thing the principal took this seriously and possibly averted an awful tragedy. If he had done nothing and a massacre took place then everyone would be upset that he did nothing!" — carolyn, commenting on

Johnston: "how come the people who get the most from the system have all the ideas to fix it for every body but themselves?" — sonny val, commenting on

Narragansett-South Kingstown: "I Pray Lord that you would grant your daughter full restoration and more, that her limbs and whole body would function even better than before in the name of Jesus!" — Najla Singleton-McKinnon, commenting on

North Kingstown: "Perhaps the school department should show more interest in working with the town council. The Superintendents speech (and misinformation) he gave at the town council meting the other night is a clear indication that getting more money to protect teacher and administrator compensation was his #1 priority." — NK_Voter, commenting on

Woonsocket: "Lowering or watering down the passing grade so kids can graduate is nothing to be proud of. It's one step up from the accepted practice of social promotions. Shameful and sad." — Chris12, commenting

I am not an atheist. The weekly reader roundup is a random selection of some of the reader comments posted on Patch sites across the region. I deleted your post because you used expletives and that is a violation of our terms of service.

Luce, no wonder you can't hold a job... Your articles are absolutely the worst I have ever seen. Instead of Florida why don't you go to some remote village on the Amazon...You might make it there or the worst case, end up on a dinner plate...

The guy you have doing the Reader Roundup is who I was referring to. Every single comment he uses is very offensive, yet that is allowed? "Cranston: "Hateful hypocritical "Christians" are the scum of the earth." —" REALLY!!!!!!???? This is making Cranston Patch an embarrassment to Cranston!!!!
Melanie Scalera April 17, 2012 at 02:05 AM
FYI....I think the work you do is great and I don't mean to offend you at all; but those reader roundups are just the opposite----it's like a roundup of the most offensive comments everytime and it gives Cranston a bad name. Maybe the dude doing it hates Cranston and wants to make the city look bad.
STFU!! April 17, 2012 at 11:14 AM
I agree with Melanie the use of 'Hateful, Hypocritical Christians is out of bounds how do we know it wasn't a hateful Atheist pretending to be a Christian just to further make all Christians look bad that sent the note. And why do Atheist often make fun of or say derogatory remarks about jesus to prove their point u have to believe that by making fun of our god it's going to provoke anger Christians on the other hand have nothing to poke fun at since you atheist believe in nothing? so to Reader Roundup

FYI.....one of your users posted many expletives, including the "C" word, yet that post is still there. My main point.....does this NOT prove how biased Patrick Luce is? Aren't news sources supposed to maintain neutral status and be unbiased? 1.)READER ROUNDUP: Place Blame Where it Lies Check out what people are discussing all over the state, and join in the conversation! By Patrick Luce Email the author 9:54 am Cranston: "The school committee had a chance to stop breaking the law; they had no chance of keeping their blatantly illegal school prayer on the wall. It was an open and shut, unwinnable case." — Robin Lionheart 2.)READER ROUNDUP By Patrick Luce Email the author March 10, 2012 News READER ROUNDUP: Serve Children, Not Christianity Cranston: "Cranston’s school board should have spent your tax dollars more wisely, in service of children of Cranston, not in service of Christianity. Frank Lombardi, Michael Traficante, Andrea Ianazzi, and Paula MacFarland put indoctrination before education, and scorned our Constitution and our religious liberty. And now Cranston taxpayers will pay the price of their arrogance." — Robin Lionheart, commenting on District Agrees To Pay ACLU $150,000 3.)READER ROUNDUP By Patrick Luce Email the author April 15, 2012 NewsREADER ROUNDUP: 'Hateful, Hypocritical Christians Cranston: "Hateful hypocritical "Christians" are the scum of the earth." — ELM, commenting on Ahlquist Family Told to 'Get Out of RI' in Threatening Letter

4.) 4.)READER ROUNDUP By Patrick Luce Email the author February 19, 2012 News READER ROUNDUP: 'Sad State of Affairs' Cranston: "I'm amazed at how much energy the crowd exerts in support of superstition, especially when threatened with not being able to display that superstition at a public school. It's as if we live in a third-world country, where religious voodoo is the "science" of the masses. What a sad state of affairs." — Lew Payne, commentng on LIVE: Prayer Banner Appeal Fails 5.) READER ROUNDUP By Patrick Luce Email the author February 4, 2012 News READER ROUNDUP: 'Hope They Learned A Lesson' Cranston: "Everyone knew the Cranston School District would be responsible for legal fees if they lost this case but, led by emotion, they proceeded anyway. I hope they have learned a lesson about law, "majority rule" and Constitutional rights." — Jackie, commenting on ACLU asks for $173,000 in Attorney's Fees in Prayer Banner Suit

8.) READER ROUNDUP: READER ROUNDUP By Patrick Luce Email the author January 22, 2012 'Thuggish' Response to First Amendment Fight Cranston: "I'm not all that surprised, but certainly dismayed, by the thuggish, moblike response to citizens like Ahlquist and Grenga, who not only are entitled to express their opinions without being shouted down (if not threatened with physical harm), but who pretty clearly turned out to be on the right side of our laws." — Ross Stapleton-Gray, commenting on Emotional Crowd Demands Committee Appeal Banner Ruling 9.)Cranston: READER ROUNDUP By Patrick Luce Email the author February 26, 2012 "Why can't someone just take a paint brush to the words Heavenly Father and Amen?
