"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
The logic some of you display is terrifyingly bizarre. You twist and twist until its hard to even make sense of anything anymore.
Let's try this again:
Yes, as *sins*. If I point out that both *tax evasion* and *murder* are both *crimes* am I making any real equivocation or comparison between murder and tax evasion, or am I merely pointing out that they both exist in a rather broad catagory titled "crime"?
Do you want to actually address this honestly this time, or will you again evade it? And if you simply want to evade it why even bother replying? It just makes you look dishonest and agenda driven
Deny what? I'm the one who cited what he actually said, so i can hardly be denying it. The issue here is how you are trying to interpret those remarksYou can deny it all you want
See my remarks above that I made for a fourth time. Will you finally address them or simply repeat yourself, mindlessly?but it won't change him lumping gays with terrorists, nor homosexuality with bestiality.
People get pissed off about all manner of things, that doesn't equate to what they are pissed off about having actual merit, their interpretation of the material being correct, nor serves to justify their response to it. As I said in the beginning, and what initiated your series of non-responses, these attempts to force views on the larger public only tend to solidify opposition to them and it's better to let natural trends take their course, especially when they are moving in the desired direction.If you cannot comprehend why that might piss some people off, the issue is not with me.
But to discuss this you need to be willing to be honest here. Something you seem very intent in not doing
I have done my reading, this is why I know this..
"Democratic Socialism" is a joke because there is no "capitalist" option so it's not democratic at all...
The same people run for office, and they're all the same - socialists - so how the hell is that democratic.
North Korea is a perfect example of that - what "Kim" do you want?
It's like putting a bowl of brown M&M's out on the table and claiming that because people can choose which ones they want - that is democracy...
B. They got boycotted.... they didn't get dropped from their record label or anything.
C. WTF is a GAICO?
B (1). However.... this bit I just learned (by making sure I wasn't wrong in my assumption in B) is totally ****ed up...

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,
