It used to be that the nightly news took fifteen minutes and no one ever mentioned their sex lives. I know you think I am a fossil, but I think we received more real news then than now with 24 news and commentary (also known as fluff, windbag-it is, pomposity and drivel - yes I include Rush as well as the liberal media and NPR!.

What did he preach about which hormones makes his tits grow bigger while still allowing him to get an erection?

Clarence, you do realize that Reverend Dr. Cameron Partridge is a trans man and not a woman right? He would be taking hormones to let him grow face and body hair, and getting his breasts removed.

Patridge isn't a man. He's a woman suffering from gender dysphoria who has undergone surgical mutilation and/or medical/chemical alteration as to evidence male secondary sex characteristics.

His chromosomal pattern is female.

One cannot change their sex.

One can, however change their stupidity and bigotry. Not to do so is a choice.

Maybe you were speaking of Rev. Partridge. If that's the case, I didn't pick anything up from the artcile whereupon the Rev. came across as stupid or bigoted.

No, Dan, my implication was clear, and it in no way involved Rev. Partridge.

Actually, it wasn't that clear.

I don't believe I made an inaccurate statement nor did I express any irrational fear, distrust or hatred of Rev. Partridge.

So, maybe you should clarify as to why you made the comment you did.

Without even an attempt to substantiate such a claim?

Tsk, tsk.

Because he's a troll, there is no other answer.

You are right.

But, to acknowledge one's own stupidity and bigotry is to abandon the attitudes and beliefs that one has made a life long habit of defending.

Most people haven't got the guts to be "reborn" in such a life-affirming push of the spiritual reset button.

lI asked lides to expand upon why he presented me with the "stupidity" and "bigotry" thing, and he has not responded. I have to assume that he can't locate something in his Progressive Phrasebook that suits the question, so I'll ask you since you're smarter and you joined in:

I don't believe I made an inaccurate statement nor did I express any irrational fear, distrust or hatred of Rev. Partridge.

Why would someone have accused me of stupidty and bigotry for making the observation I made RE: Rev. Partridge?

Dan, that you are stupid is my opinion. That you are bigoted is plain for all to see. That it took you this long to catch on to something that was plainly stated tends to reinforce the former.

Joe, feel free to advance an actual argument and support it with fact. How, do you suppose have I shown poor reading comprehension? This should be rich, coming from one who frequently picks and chooses which Bible verses he thinks are relevant, while disregarding those he finds inconvenient.

You're entitled to your opinion, of course, but I don't understand how you'd base it upon my comment here.

I didn't observe anything about Rev. Partridge that was errorneous, I don't believe.

Also, I expressed no fear, distrust or hatred based upon of Rev. Partridge, so I'm at a loss as to how you arrived at the "bigoted" charge.

Do you consider your opinions of me binding, as if by fiat, without requiring substantiation? If so, does that not teeter perilously along the lines of the "bigotry" you so easily accuse others of?
