{do not deserve to be treated with respect}
People of all faiths and belief deserve to be treated with human dignity and respect. You may not believe what they do but to be disrespectful only shows us the menacing side of humanity.
So then you accept David Berkowitz, Jeffery Dahmer, and pretty much every serial kill, mass murderer, and terrorist. You think they should all be allowed to continue because it's "just what they believe?" You don't see the problem with this?

If you want to know something about the Bible, a Christian is last person to ask.

Your denigrating personal comments about Hispanics, directed to me, were not respectful. You placed all Hispanics in a very bad light--you know, riding donkeys, speaking Spanglish, having chickens indoors.
If that's putting down Hispanics, think what is says about the chickens and donkeys.

I believe it ... especially if they're unconscious. But I fail to see why a display of stupid is a good thing, care to explain why we should be impressed with your stupid?

Who said you should be impressed?

If I only read stupidity that is impressive, I could never respond to you.

Interesting, so you think someone actually reading what the scientific minds post on here is "stupid" but hitting people for no reason is "smart." .... very interesting.

I have been abrasive to you because of your narcissistic behavior. Your ego needed to be deflated because it was and sometimes still is the size of the Goodyear Blimp.

I will relinquish when you stop being a needling narcissistic bully. A troubling side with you is your need to role play as women. Iím not sure what would cause a man to act that way.

Anyway I would prefer a more amiable relationship with you but so far you havenít found it in your heart to stop acting like a jerk.

The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776, states as follows:

ďWe hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;Ē

Gah, you really are as vile as they asserted. I gave you the benefit of the doubt and you spew nothing but horrible ad-homs toward someone just because they asked you a very simple question. You are disgusting.

That's nice. Doesn't change that you're a vile bigot who thinks their religion should get special privileges.
