Binter: A census is not about "dignity" or "human respect". If lesbians were counted as 3/5ths persons for the census, I think your butter & bacon sandwich would be churning w/in your belly. Ya know?<quoted text>
A census is not about "dignity" or "human respect". It was not about their humanity at all. It's about numbers, and in that case, representation in gov't.
You're twisting yourself into a pretzel, and you're not proving anything. You just plain wrong.
If Wiccans were considered 3/5ths of a person for the census, you would have to cancel your Good Luck ritual in the cemetery.
