Evidence please? Have you not heard? The case is not closed. But those who divert like you are the closed minded ones.

<quoted text>How so? You show why having bible study and no Koran study is respecting the establishment of one religion over another. Note the same words are in our constitution.
Both the Koran and the bible demand you murder infidels.
So please tell me why no Koran in schools?

Deuteronomy 13 6-10. Read it and see how god demands you to murder.

Can you answer a question or are you going to divert every time?

Reminds me of that excerpt from Wizard of Oz when Dorothy meets Scarecrow and ask him.. "How can you talk if you haven't a brain?" and he replies "Oh some people without brains do an awful lot of talking" Scarecrow was talking about YaY, Curious, and Sista.

No ,no ,no Witchety..

You are unable to acknowledge that which is obvious to all who know you .

"When confronted with an ethical dilemma, most of us like to think we would stand up for our principles. But we are not as ethical as we think we are. In Blind Spots, leading business ethicists Max Bazerman and Ann Tenbrunsel examine the ways we overestimate our ability to do what is right and how we act unethically without meaning to. From the collapse of Enron and corruption in the tobacco industry, to sales of the defective Ford Pinto, the downfall of Bernard Madoff, and the Challenger space shuttle disaster, the authors investigate the nature of ethical failures in the business world and beyond, and illustrate how we can become more ethical, bridging the gap between who we are and who we want to be.
Explaining why traditional approaches to ethics don't work, the book considers how blind spots like ethical fading--the removal of ethics from the decision--making process--have led to tragedies and scandals such as the Challenger space shuttle disaster, steroid use in Major League Baseball, the crash in the financial markets, and the energy crisis. The authors demonstrate how ethical standards shift, how we neglect to notice and act on the unethical behavior of others, and how compliance initiatives can actually promote unethical behavior. They argue that scandals will continue to emerge unless such approaches take into account the psychology of individuals faced with ethical dilemmas. Distinguishing our "should self" (the person who knows what is correct) from our "want self" (the person who ends up making decisions), the authors point out ethical sinkholes that create questionable actions."
Among the self proclaimed righteous and ethical we find
Richard Nixon.....Spiro Agnew .....Bernie Maddof..... Bernard Ebbers.....Lance Armstrong,,,,,Ryan Braun ....Rafael Palmeiro...
John Mitchell.....Frank and Jesse James.....All the scurrilous business leaders who took this country to the edge of economic collapse ,Martha Stewart Eliot Spitzer ,Anthony Weiner among many others to numerous to mention
Oh yes ,All these were self proclaimed Ethical and honest individuals ,having never done anything for which they needed be ashamed,,,,,,,,Until they got caught.
And we hear about these self righteous ethical individuals as they lead Mafia families into a life of self righteous criminal activity.
And last but not least , we have that one fictitious individual laying claim to being free of sin
Ladies and gentlemen ,may I present to you , the fictitious personality with the fictitious personality of being Ethical to perfection. WitchintheWoods.
BTW; Did you know that those who teach Ethics are less likely to return their library books than the general population.
Who Can You Trust?.... Not me ,said the brave King
None of this explains why you did wrong, knowing you did wrong, then claimed you did not know better.
Your elaborate deviation from the accusation tells all.
And why do you presume to know our ethics and morals? You make claims with absolutely zero evidence. Basically slander.

Because you wish to have double standards, you rationalize this by not seeing them in the same category. Yet you have failed to even explain why.

When and if you eventually realize, grown ups can, and do, have diplomatic conversations at far more intelligent levels beyond imbecilic "right/wrong" and you can step up a few levels out of the piles of manure, then you might post something worth reading.
This is an opinion forum. I give my opinion of what is right or wrong. Don't like it? To flicking bad.
I am trying to have an intellectual conversation, but none if you guys wish to discuss issues. You just call me stupid and run. But I expect as much with the ultra hypocritical.

EXTREMISM in ANYthing, usually IS.
Unbalanced, Unhealthy and UNenlightened, to say the least.
Yes extremism is problematic in most cases. Like when the bible demands you kill those who try and sway you from your god. Kill your mother and brother if need be.
Deuteronomy 13 6-10.

And yes, I think killing someone for worshiping a golden calf is wrong. Pretty black and white on that.

The red tape was still tangled in certai aspects (wile at least one HAD been "punished" already), and therefore just an EXCUSE.
Abysmal FOREIGN POLICY FAILURE.
Well terrorism in this case and in Iraq would be a silly foreign policy. But it was your complaint about terrorism and appeasement, not mine. Just wanted to show your hypocrisy. Looks like it worked. Not that I needed to try hard. You usually do it on your own.
And I am pretty sure Obama was in control when Bin Laden was shown justice. To bad Bush diverted to Iraq. Maybe he could have got him if he had focus in the guy who attacked us on 9/11.

People of this nature can only assume to fit their assertions. It is how the bible aligns their ego to defend their irrational positions they hold. Self-evidence bro... it's that logic killer.

They constantly contradict themselves, much like their favorite old book.

Sista... who wants an "intellectual" discussion but who talks baby talk and resorts to name calling nearly every post.

Yaa... who can do no better than screaming "no, you're wrong" but still expects us to believe (with no proof other than his words) that his fairy tale is real.

Curious... who does what is wrong, knowing it's wrong, but it's ok since he can apologize to Yahweh and all will be well in his world.

KnownFact... well, what can I say about someone who MUST post cut and paste because he can't think for himself well enough to debate his beliefs? LOL! At least he is boringly consistant.

I don't consider simply being an ethical, decent person as a "high opinion."
You only think it's "high" because it makes you feel "low."
That is YOUR problem.
I understand why you want to believe "everyone" does terrible things.
You and Yaa need to feel better about yourselves and you do it by believing "everyone does it."
<quoted text>
I'm not talking about other people. I only answer for myself.
My uncle used to tell me that those people who self proclaimed themselves to be "Ethical" and felt no need to feel ashamed of anything they had ever done ,did so ,on the basis that they had no shame.
Self-righteousness (also called sanctimoniousness, sententiousness, and holier-than-thou attitudes[1]) is a feeling or display of (usually smug) moral superiority[2] derived from a sense that one's beliefs, actions, or affiliations are of greater virtue than those of the average person.
The term "self-righteous" is often considered derogatory particularly because self-righteous individuals are often thought to exhibit hypocrisy due to the belief that humans are imperfect and can therefore never be infallible, an idea similar to that of the Freudian defense mechanism of reaction formation. The connection between self-righteousness and hypocrisy predates Freud's views, however, as evidenced by the 1899 book Good Mrs. Hypocrite: A Study in Self-Righteousness, by the pseudonymous author "Rita."
Now , compound your problem by using your other monikers to defend your position. LOL
The mafia Dons ,much like yourself ,all have a high opinion of themselves ...As do all the convicts sitting in jail And those in mental asylums.
According to them ,just like you , they also claim to have never done anything for which they need feel ashamed
