It's never a given unless you confess of your own free will.

A family in Ohio is suing the Department of Corrections because it took too long for the convicted criminal to die. Even the judge that denied a stay said it was an experiment. The experiment failed miserably. A rope would have been more humane. Drop...snap...twitch...dead.

As well has been left out qualifiers concerning those "Christian principles".
As one source on this pointed out, one could just as "honestly" posted the following as being Adams' opinion...
"The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence, were the general principles of English and American liberty I will avow, that I then believed and now believe that those principles of liberty are as unalterable as human nature and our terrestrial, mundane system."
In other words, taking the same source, using the same techniques of selection, one can obtain two quotes that say practically the opposite. This is a points to only one thing...the quote as you presented it is completely dishonest.
This is the type of "scholarship" we have come to expect from Barton, and the type of "scholarship" which Buck supports.
That changes nothing, you Dumbass. It only adds to it. Notice below, the exact copy and paste from your own post, in particlular:

"And what were these general principles? I answer, the general principles of Christianity, in which all those sects were united, and the general principles of English and American liberty, in which all those young men united, and which had united all parties in America, in majorities sufficient to assert and maintain her independence."

So you think adding "the general principles of English and American liberty" negates the assertion of the general principles of Christianity?

Sorry, no.

Still batting 1000.

Especially for Christians, in theory anyway.

Be good or go to hell.

And yet, our prisons are overcrowded with Christians.

Gender itself is not a cultural construct. Hair color isn't. Skin color isn't.

As long as you can acknowledge that your conclusion is subjective and limited, you don't really need to understand alternative meaning systems.

Ya, sure they are.

That's what the inmates tell you, anyway.

And you believe them.

<quoted text>gonna chime in here
Personally I have always categorized things like this
1) Heterosexual
2) Homosexual
3) Pedophile
I consider them 3 different sexual groups
But it is true that pedophiles almost always stick to one gender.
So technically, could it be fair to say heterosexual pedophiles molest the opposite sex and homosexual pedophiles molest the same sex?
I don't see that as an attack on either group. It is the pedophile part that is the problem obviously.
Pedophilia involving a person molesting the same sex is homosexuality, and a homosexual act.

Most pedophilia is of this category.

That is the likely reason there has been an impetus in psychology for delineating a separate category for pedophilia. It's a ruse.

No, I don't see.

I was talking about executing violent criminals, not disciplining kids.

The two are the same to you?
