You cannot educate people that don’t want to be educated, in this day and age, ignorance is a choice, education is a 2 way street.

Don’t focus on the ignorant by choice, they are a lost cause, focus instead where the movement has focused, on those who want to be educated.

Re-educating is a very scary word. And concept. I knew X-Box was a radical but thought a little better of you. I hope I never see any "re-educating" going on in this free country.

You have me and everyone else here pretty much pigeonholed.
And you have me in the wrong hole. You're a jackass.
Oh no I take each person one at a time

You are not the same as your friends that are open about their opposition to same sex marriage, Pietro is for example honest about his opposition to same sex marriage and hence his questions about Poly.

You are inherently dishonest about it so I treat you totally differently

You are not at all the same, no one is.

Your dishonesty about my motives speaks for itself.

You never will answer. Why would I lie? What possible motive would I have to come here and argue a position I did not support?

Paranoid much? But it's not paranoia, it's dishonesty. Which is your M.O.

X-Box said it's almost time to start re-educating. You agreed. Only you called it "educating". Same thing.

You are here for the same dumb reason I am. I love how you sit up there on high and pontificate down to us slobs in need of educating below.

Your silly posts are no better or worse than my silly posts, jackass.

Sure you may be in charge of the janitor crew at work but you're just another jackass like me here.

No I told him he was wrong that you cannot educate people that choose to be ignorant. Instead focus on people that want to learn, that want education, I never used the term “re-education” because that implies forced education against someone wishes, that isn’t education. I said education is a 2 way street.

I served two tours in Vietnam. 1968-1971. All my medals are real. I have the DD214 to prove it. Vietnam combat duty two tours. And a medal for Korean service. North Korea shot down one of our planes in 1969, we went up to saber rattle at them. Got the t-shirt, hat and medal.

Who cares if you believe it and what does it have to do with marriage equality?

What is my number tough guy? Lucky seven? You're too funny.

Jizzy! Homophobe detective! Rooting out imagined homophobia on topix! With help from above by Big D!

What's the prize if I was a flaming homophobe? So what? For all you know I'm gay, dummy. Relax fruitcake!

Your problem is that I genuinely support gay rights. And it steams your ass because you think you have the market cornered.

My support for marriage equality is genuine and all encompassing. Yours is because you think it's cool. And you want to be a cool progressive swinging guy.

Yes mighty D! I am so sorry Mighty D!

You jumped right in with your version of X-Box's "re-educating" radical schtick. Claiming only a few people could be "educated" nt all.

One can only guess what the curriculum in your "education" would be,
but I can make an "educated" guess.

is a free country. X-Box doesn't get to re-educate people, you don't get to educate them to proper Big D and X box thought. Thank a veteran.

You aren’t going to be able to converse with anyone until you have at least a second grade comprehension level.
I am not going to argue with someone that is lying about what I said when it is just a few posts above.
I never said few people, the vast majority of people want to be educated, it is only the ones that choose ignorance that are a waste of time.
Please point to where I sad “few”
