Yes you Brits praise fighting against Totalitarian Hitler.
Now Brits create thought crimes of anyone with racist views.
I really think British people are some of the most retarded people I have seen.
Brits praise Totalitarian Oliver Cromwell as the best of British leaders.
Brits praise destroying Totalitarian Nazis.
While Brits praise thought crime totalitarian rules again racist thought crimes.

Your link is an opinion poll which indicates that college is not necessarily a path to skepticism. So what?

whats going down in rural mississipi..?
The whole left wing demonization of Southern Whites are inbred racist ignorant hillbillies is very "feeling" oriented & not very "fact" oriented.

Actually the North East U.S is the hate crime capital of the U.S

See these map. New Jersey is the hate crime capital of the U.S

http://www.google.com/imgres...

As far as inbred goes?
Actually Southern Whites are more likely to be mixed race actually.

As far as stupid. Well yeah Southern Whites in the U.S tend to be slightly more stupid than Northern Whites.

Southern Whites in the U.S are mostly of British ethnic orgins afterall.
So stupidity is to be expected.

Stupidity is far greater in Blacks though.(Something the Left wing conviently ignores)

Oh yeah the Left also ignores Blacks are more likely to be religious, creationists & homophobes too.

I really get the impression Left wingers typically don't know what they are doing.
They are guided too much by "feelings" rather than "logical direction"

I believe the problem is money and perhaps even the will to act. The police must act in the case of paedophilia or there will be riots. Racism is not seen as so harmful so receives a lower priority. The same technology and methods can be used in both cases.
Most people don’t understand how the technology works, it not a case of thought police. Just consider the internet traffic at any one moment and how many “thought police” would be required to monitor it. So there must be more precise method, electronic filters looks for certain word combinations. A hit is tagged and examined. All others packets (the internet works by sending packets) are ignored. I don’t know what words are looked for but maybe this post will be tagged because it contains- police, racism and paedophilia.
When a police helicopter keeps me awake at night because it’s searching for a criminal, I do not feel any intrusion although I can feel a little grumpy from lack of sleep the nest day. In the same way do not feel any intrusion about my internet communication being read. I put it on topix to be read so no problem. As you say, nothing to hide.
Yes racism is still around but at least for in the case of physical intrusion we now have the law.
i agree with your observations and thoughts here..
There is less tolerance for paedophilia than for racism..
fair enough, one might say..
there are more racist people than paedophiles hence the denouncement of the latter.
Re the internet..looking for word combinations would help, also I wonder if there are already police 'spies' on these sites, posing as paedophiles / racist bigots / any other undesirable group..?. The spies could 'befriend' the suspects, and hence find further information ..hey, sounds like an inteesting job !

It's a shame they passed laws against burning witches, atheists and all that other stuff Christianity is supposed to kill, eliminate, or persecute, eh?
What good is Christianity without the righteous hate?
We could be converting godless heathens, plucking out eyes and all kinds of good holy stuff if it wasn't for crazy idea of equality.
LOL....Nobody Wants To Hurt You, Quit playing The Victim.

Now, Truth Be Told....I See No One Demonstrating Against Atheists.

And Christians Just Want To Be Left Alone.

What I Do See Is Constant Attacks Against Anything Christian.

This Leaves You To Be A Liar, Or A Hypocrite, Which Is it ?

I will point to the above message and remind that I am calling you out as the lying bigot you are, and that it is you who finds a need to make things up (these quotes that do not exist) when you have nothing else.
Do not pass go: show us all the quote or comment where I attach magical qualities to anything.
You attempted to bestow the magic of mind reading onto me simply because you had nothing substantial to bolster your godhead ego

You are welcome to call me out as anything you want but without evidence your words are about as useful as p|ssing into the ocean.

What quotes are you referring to, please tell me and I will show you the evidence to prove you are a total snivelling pillock. As to mind reading, that was your statement, you were therefore attempting to bestow magical or even godlike powers onto me to suite your own godhead ego, just because it backfired on you is your fault for going there in the first place, you cannot lay the blame on me you your own words.

Hey, I’m not the one calling myself bigdickhead, that’s the racist moron we have on here, try running his name through google translate (hint, Polish > English) to see what a fool he is making of you. He readily admits to being racist, perhaps that sort of sick hatred is just the sort of thing that turns you one.
Then you go on to call me racist, all that does is totally f*cks up your own credibility simply because it proves that you know bugger all about me and shoes you are just calling names for spite.
As for nothing to contribute, I’ve never come across any one who can counter E=MC^2 versus Revelation 19:6, lets face it you are here so no omnipotent entity can me. Hey, even butt crack gets all wound up with it.
The Tanahk story of the father of the person you call jesus is a doozie too, verified by the Roman archives, the gostic gospels and even some early Christians.
What appears to be the problem is that you have no answer to any of my points so you tend to ignore then and go into spite mode. The thing is, I don’t actually care about you ignorance and venom
Talking about venom, lets go into your hatred accusation. Nope, I don’t think I have the hatred emotion, if I do then it’s very much in the background and I can’t say I’ve ever noticed it. I have never started any bout of name calling but I wilfully reciprocate, just as I do with you. Such a pity that you don’t have the bottle to accept payback, you’d make a much more entertaining adversary
E=mc^2 tells us nothing about an omnipotent deity.

Nothing.

Nothing at all.

That's crackpot science fiction.

My arguments are rather HONEST. Well as Honest as I can attempt to make them generally.
Far more HONEST than anyone here.
You don't even have any REAL argument. Your arguments are mostly this feels right or this feels wrong.
With no sort of logical or factual base.
I am generally HONEST. I admit that East Asians generally score a higher IQ than Whites.
RACISM IS GENERALLY HONESTY.
As shown in the studies where ALL people's amygdala lights up more when they see a Black face than a White face.
Anti racist Whites, Racist Whites & Blacks ALL get a fear response light up in the amygdala when they see a Black face.
So who is being HONEST?
Well it seems the RACISTS ARE BEING MORE HONEST.
Anti racists typically just MOCK HONESTY.
They often have slight racist beliefs & LIE ABOUT THEM.
They typically are DISHONEST & lie about or disregard data.
Yeah, I conclude you are being honest in respect of your beliefs..
..in that you honestly believe what you say..
I have said all I can say , and I will always stand by it.
There is no reasoning with the unreasonable.
If I cannot appeal to your better nature,.. if there is none,.. then there is nothing left to do.
I don't think I have any more to say in response to your posts..

Good point. If it's a pledge of allegiance to a country under some god, then it's a pledge of allegiance to that god as well - a Christian oath. It contaminates the experience for the freethinking patriot.

Are parents who refuse to let their child recite the pledge often ostracised?

Your assaultive nature shows only your inability to stay on subject. Not once have you offered any reason why a godless murderer is wrong. You're all over the place with insults and avoidances concerning the world history of your pagan beliefs, now exposing your jealousies of the very superior capabilities of the home schooled. You've lots of rationalization for the perverse and deviant... none for the progress of mankind from other sources than atheism.
Keeping you busy is the only avenue left to those trapping your useless, distorted knowledge on a board no one reads. Your life must be very interesting.

I'm not the one rolling on the floor kicking and screaming that the USA is more religious when I have to bow down to the monarch who is the head of the state religion.
I'm also not the only person here who thinks the UK is anything other than a 2nd rate military power who would have lost both WWI and WWII if it didn't have the USA come in and save their bacon.
PS: I don't decide who is right or wrong based on popularity, especially popularity of religious bigots such as yourself.
The trouble you've got is that in order for your posts to have any impact, people must first respect your opinion.

Have you pledged your allegiance to the Christian god lately?

I can’t see police internet spies on general and open internet sites, certainly not in the western world. It would be much too expensive considering a single box of electronic tricks can do the job of perhaps 10000 or more such people, 24 hours a day 7 days a week and the box doesn’t want time off for 6 weeks holiday and 3 grandmothers funerals a year.

That’s not to say it doesn’t happen, It certainly has happened on restricted sites as many a bewildered paedophile has discovered however this is probably triggered by the box of tricks in the first place.

The internet is to vast a system to police on an individual basis and the police departments that police it are finite
