To things like the party that M mentioned. The SIL saw an invite to M and basically invited herself along.

See! Cant wait to disparage anything to do with my religious beliefs. What and why I chose my belief system is not for your "entertainment". See how very, very shallow you are. Thanks for being true to your hatred.

I characterized the manner in which you arrived at your you current religious framework. You chastized me for not actually knowing, but you didn't say that I was wrong or right, and I invited you to clarify. Without you clarifying, your "you don't know" comment is pretty stupid and worthless.

She is not raising a point, she is simply saying that people who have a faith are too dumb to think for themselves. <quoted text>
This is where you're "My hatred to Sam precludes me from being rational" shines through. Nowhere in here have I said that people who have faith are dumb or are too dumb to think for themselves. Nowhere. Apparently you interned at Fox News and learned that if you say something enough people will start to believe it. I criticized people who came to a faith without any exploration or critical thinking. It has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence and everything with using what intelligence you have to explore and investigate. You're not dumb because you are a person of faith, you are dumb because you can't understand the difference.

Sorry tonka, but I dont believe sam has the "right" to "Judge" or Critisize" anyones religious choices
To even suggest that you can denounce another's religious beliefs based upon your own personal standard is an example of extreme arrogance.
Hey dum dum, I am not criticizing anyone's religious choice. I am criticizing the lack of a choice, the failure to explore/consider anything beyond that which was handed down to you.

As far as stating things as my opinion and not as a given or a fact, look in the mirror, bub. You are the king of "My way or the highway." Hypocrite, heal thyself.

I agree that would be the worst part. M needs some decompression time from the week, amiright?

So you think its ok to criticize someone if you do it under the guise of not blasting their "choice", but rather their "lack of choice"?

No matter how you slice it, you are bashing someones religious choice, which is what you alway do. Your arrogance towards people who have a faith is plain as day.

What possible concern is it to you how someone arrived at their choice? Who says you get to decide whether they arrived there in a satisfactory manner, and who made you the religious choice cop?

To put is simply
You do not have the right to criticize anyones religious choices. None, nada! That means you dont have the right to criticize their "Lack of choice" either. It is not for you to decide these things, You dont get to tell someone they are or not using their brains because they did or did not arrive at a choice the way you feel they should have, so get off you high horse about it!

There have been many exchanges and I can't remember everything that has been said, but I don't think Sam has said anything that much different than what I said, Race.

Ahhhh, I see the problem, you silly boy. You didn't know that we're in an internet forum where it is commonplace for people to express their opinions on the topic at hand. It happens all the time! For example, guns are discussed from time to time, and some people choose to label as idiots those who would seek to limit gun ownership rights. I know that you would never condemn anyone in such a harsh manner, but you should beware that such behavior does occur from time to time.

You of all people telling anyone what they can or cannot approve of or criticize, what rights they do or do not have is hilarious.

Hey Race, some girlfriends and I just booked our weekend in Vegas the fourth weekend in June. Would you like to come out and be our cabana boy? Or maybe you could bring along your gun and be our security team!

I agree. You're all saying the same thing: people of faith are mindless drones incapable of independent thought and instead blindly follow what their parents say.

I went online to shop for an ivory/cream blouse for a friend's wedding (she had grey skirts made for the three of us, and then asked us to buy our own tops in ivory/cream).

I found one, and also this, which I love (and bought):

Nope, neither of us has said that religious folks are incapable of independent thought.

Sam has repeatedly said it's not that they are incapable, but that they choose not to do so.

Me, I said, it is one area where many seemingly intelligent folks fail to think critically.

Your such a twit.
Calling someone an idiot because they believe in limiting how many guns another person should own, is in no way comparable to calling someone an idiot because you dont like their religious choice.

If you cant see that, maybe its time you emptied your brain and tried filling it up again.

Depends, are the other girls "Real girls" or just transvestites like yourself?
