George primarily uses perjoratives to illustrate double standards.
I minimize their use because I see it as needless agitation. But posters have different styles.
And by the way, I still want to see your census tract demographics.
Karl, you understand civility. George does not.

We already discussed my census tract. Its a little different than yours.

Because they are rooted in Christianity.

Antonin Scalia, LLB, Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court, wrote in his June 27, 2005 dissenting opinion in McCreary County, Kentucky v. American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky (163 KB):

"I shall discuss first, why the Court’s oft repeated assertion that the government cannot favor religious practice is false...
George Washington added to the form of Presidential oath prescribed by Art. II,§1, cl. 8, of the Constitution, the concluding words 'so help me God.' The Supreme Court under John Marshall opened its sessions with the prayer,'God save the United States and this Honorable Court.' The First Congress instituted the practice of beginning its legislative sessions with a prayer.

The same week that Congress submitted the Establishment Clause as part of the Bill of Rights for ratification by the States, it enacted legislation providing for paid chaplains in the House and Senate. The day after the First Amendment was proposed, the same Congress that had proposed it requested the President to proclaim 'a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed, by acknowledging, with grateful hearts, the many and signal favours of Almighty God.'

...The same Congress also reenacted the Northwest Territory Ordinance of 1787, 1 Stat. 50, Article III of which provided:'Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.' And of course the First Amendment itself accords religion (and no other manner of belief) special constitutional protection.

These actions of our First President and Congress and the Marshall Court were not idiosyncratic; they reflected the beliefs of the period. Those who wrote the Constitution believed that morality was essential to the well-being of society and that encouragement of religion was the best way to foster morality."

Love your humor!!!!
That "humor" both dehumanized Che and trivialized rape.

You, madam, are a hypocrite and have no moral standing upon which you can criticize others for being "mean" and "nasty".

Now, step off.

You shouldn't. There's nothing wrong with being civil, and everything about it is right (pun intended).

I really have never defended it. I've ignored it, despite the fact that I think its over the top.

I think I know why he does it. He could be more effective if he toned it down. Same goes for Paco.

Spook...that guy is just patently offensive.

Is that sufficient for you?

That's the buzz, "sensible"

When we have for instance, fetal contract murder, unable to be restricted because the left freaks over "theocracy", I can't find you to be "sensible"

Are you so sure Che's is a male? No male is that shrill, unless of course... you figure out the rest.

George pushes the envelope, so what? Che does not--she rips the envelope to shreds. She is on attack mode like a guard dog, constantly.

Spook is Spook. He cracks me up at times. But I relate to him in a few ways, particularly with his references to total stations since I once worked in mapping with professional surveyors. And often, while you may not like his language, much of what he does have to offer is grounded in reality.

See, I look for common ground with people. Why not you? Civility? If I find no common ground, I eventually ignore that person.

You seem to never be able to just accept some things. But you blindly accept Che is male, unless you know this how? Proof? Hmmm....

Were our founders "religious zealots" since they established laws, rooted in Christianity, that punish certain behaviors.

I have never met Che, never corresponded. I have absolutely no personal knowledge about what gender that poster is. It really isn't relevant to anything.

I always am looking for common ground. That's what make the world a better place. But I also enjoy making people think.

Anyway, your statement about pushing the envelope vs. ripping it to shreds immediately brought this to mind:

Which laws specifically are you referring to?

I didn't say they were zealots.
