<quoted text>There are several cases.
Most of us have researched the cases. The fact that you refuse to say where you are getting your "quotes" from implies you aren't actually quoting from a case.
If you are so sure of your points and sources there is no reason to hide them.
I wasn't quoting a case. It was background general information available ANYWHERE...
given you guys attack sources like rabid dogs, find it from any source you trust..(how crazy everyone went over the lack of a source was kind of a clue that's where you all were headed...ignore the material attack the source)
the MATERIAL will be the SAME no matter where you find it......

so you are stuck with only the MATERIAL, and yet none of you have responded to that..curious isn't it?

not really...

Perhaps the reason you won't disclose your source is because it isn't considered a valid source.
BINGO...still nothing on the POINT raised..
I know why...

do ex post facto laws only apply to criminal matters?

Oh I thought we were just putting words in each others mouths...

Please don't accuse me of stealing. I have told the tale before, but many years ago, my parents took us on a tour of Santa Barbara Mission. At the end of the tour was a collection plate for donations. Now, recall this was the 60's when a dime or quarter were worth much more than now. The plate was full of coins. We had barely walked down the 3 steps outside the place's gate and could hear the good priest "clink clink clink" counting the coins in the plate. We were not outside for more than 30 seconds. That's all I need know about church folk.

how about you learn from this and stop calling people who don't hate anyone bigots and stop insulting otherwise decent people?

in other words, be CONSISTENT...
and then I can surely abide by your request...
