    Erasing RELIGIOUS DOGMA isn't the same as erasing PEOPLE...

    What is wrong with you?
    See that is what you don't get...You can't erase the "dogma'' without erasing people.

    I said...and this is the last time...wait...let me cut and paste what I said...

    I don't have the power to simply erase religion from people's minds.

    But, I would if I could.....BUT I CAN'T!
    The above is from post #78, by the way.

    Please at least be honest about my comments...

    This would be no different if a student demanded that he was in an all white class (or all black class)..... It's disgusting - furthermore it's demanding that the university in question partake in segregation.

    I suppose there is nothing stopping the kid from attempting to form a study group that relies on notes to pass the class but that would be stupid too...
    Apparently he may also be an ultra-orthodox Jew.

    You practice discrimination daily, as do all people.

I believe we know the answer. I haven't received an answer, though, as to why we should always be expected to back down, when it happens in our country! Fair is fair!
    Greetings Carjosse.
    By their country I assume you mean Canada? and the answer is obviously yes.

    Oh I am....That you realize that you can't do that is of little comfort....It would be the same if you had said

    'I wish I could erase Judaism from the planet. I can't, but if I could I would....'

    It is fascist thinking period. That you understand that you don't have the power to do so, doesn't make your vile bigoted thoughts any less repulsive.
