No. Not an ad hominem. He is merely pointing out that you are an ignoramus of the American variety.

What?
Perhaps it was a hypothetical possibility of a growing Godless nation. If the burden of the old folk puts to much pressure on society, is it ok if societal change deals with it by elimination? Hey check the stats, its mind boggling liability coming.

Ah yes.
I'll follow Feltcher1's advice in intellect: Mexico is America.
Gosh. That WAS easy.
So now that I've followed the Topix Atheist! sheep and agree that Mexico is America, I'm no longer an ignoramus.
Whew! Close call.
There you go with your transparent dishonesty.

I never said "Mexico is America", and you know it.

Can you see why you aren't believed when you minimize your violence, for instance?

It's hard for me to believe that your character flaws, your need to dominate, your violent nature, your wiseass personality, don't impact on your personal life. I consider myself a good judge of people, and I sense that something is more than a bit rotten in your little Denmark.

Of course, you'll deny it. But your denial won't ring true at all.

A gangster is a gangster. You live in a nice area of Boston. Go to gangsterville with a nice Rolex watch and plenty of money. Those mischievous teens will stick a 45 up your nose so far it will come out your *ss.

No -change what I can change.
I can't change the church from the outside except by helping to diminish it. Why don't you help it, help Skombolis, and help the rest of us by working to help it from the inside?
<quoted text>
LOL. You think I'm gay, don't you? What do you care which holes I plug? Why do you think it's your business?
It's all good, amigo. I'm mostly over the homophobia programmed into me by my father and others from youth. Yes, I deal with the echoing of the voices of my past still ringing faintly in my head, however irrational, arbitrary, unkind and unjust I find them.

You forgot Stalin and Pol Pot
<quoted text>
Tolerance is a virtue to me, but you might be surprised by what I mean when I use the word. It does not include tolerance of the intolerant. I am only tolerant of that which wants to cooperate and get along. What remains can live in harmony.
It doesn’t matter to me if you are or if you’re not. I still love you as an Atheist and as a fellow world citizen. I love Atheist perhaps because my late Father was an Atheist. I feel a kinship with you. Hate solves nothing and love is far more powerful of a force than hate.

So now Mexico is not America?!

I see how you are. You can lie about me, saying I'm a wife beater and a child abuser, make fun of the word jumbles, talk about my dirty garage and do on but I can't fib about you in trendiest tiniest bit.

You know why?

Because you're a goddamned hypocrite.

That's why.

The statistic you quoted said 1 in 6 people don't know they have HIV. It didn't say that 1 in 6 gay men don't know they have it.
Impressive.
Do you think people that get tattoos should be banned from giving blood?
1 Year according to the powers that be.
Should we stop collecting blood altogether?
I am going to ask my Doctor about keeping my own blood. That is if i ever need blood i can draw it now and perhaps use it later. Although i don't know how practical that would be. Given the stats quoted how comfortable are you receiving blood if MSM became blood donors? Is the science foolproof? Perhaps it is better now than it was in the 80s when countless were being infected with tainted blood along with the lawsuits which followed. They have no accurate way to determine how people actually catch HIV. If a person comes down with HIV and has had homosexual sex it is assumed that is the way they caught it. In reality it is simply a guess. It is also possible the person did the MSM thing and caught HIV some other way. Its all bases on probability combined with 30 or so years research. Me, i lived my life and i am glad i am not young now. That is i am glad i lived when i did.
