    As you have offered only your unsubstantiated opinion for why Stevens is pretending to a satanist? As well as pretending that satanist actually pray? It does not even come into a morals test; it does not pass the common sense and honesty test. But then I suspect you already know that. Which is why you keep trying to divert from the fake satanist with the rather fanciful idea he is going to offer up a fake satanist prayer. I guess. Who knows, you don't actually make any sense. Have nice day.

    You have to make more sense; or resort to a morals test.

    Since satanist don't actually pray (they meditate) I nor anyone else needs to resort to anything more than laughing. At which "prayer" Mr. Satanist is going to engage in when and if he arrives before the council. Myself I wonder which movie or TV show he'll draw on for his prayer? Perhaps "Rosemary's Baby" or the infamous "The Devil's Rain" starring William Shatner and Ernest Borgnine! Because if he is going to show up to "pray" as the real satanist do, I find it hard to imagine anyone will mind his silent meditation. Or the "moral" argument behind the sound of his meditation.

    In other words, if I understand you correctly; you are concerned about Persons merely claiming to have morals from public venues even if they don't. Is that correct?

    If you understood me correctly we would not a dozen posts past the point where you started ignoring what I was posting. Much less throughout the thread. Period. I'm still not "concerned" about this story at all. The addition of Mr. Satanist and his prayer hanky have brought a strong element of farce to the matter. Several of us managed to communicate about all of that earlier in the thread. Even spoke about how we found it hard to believe that even if real satanist came and wanted to pray before the meeting, as long as all rules were followed we could not see anyone having a problem with it either. And if they did too bad. Went right over your head. I'm thinking it had something to do with some queer obsession with some incoherent morals "test" or argument. You were late to the party, but now you have been brought up to speed.

    This isn't about establishment of religion. This is about the free exercise of religion.

    And you restricting the free exercise of religion to just the majority AT A GOVERNMENT PROCEEDING. I never said anything about the establishment of a religion, that is your own feelings of persecution.

    Try to pay attention. Clearly your chill pill isn't Adderall.

    Read the first amendment, again. And try to keep up.

    BTW, when is non-establishment of religion, and free exercise of religion not one and the same, hum?

    Diversions are are usually considered fallacies, along with special pleading. If I understand you correctly; you are concerned about Persons merely claiming to have morals from public venues even if they don't. Is that correct or not. If it doesn't apply to anyone, let me know, here in the public domain regarding your view and position regarding the subjective value of morals in our republic.

    You don't understand anything said to you. You could not even be bothered to grasp anything already discussed in the thread. I'll just chuck that unintended idiocy up to pure laziness on your part, intellectual and otherwise. You dodge and avoid literally every post of mine you bothered to "quote" using the forum reply software. Yet here you are whining (and temp suspended) about fallacies and diversions? Hilarious. And clearly your own "special pleadings" were not enough to exempt you from forum rules and being temp suspended. Enjoy your vacation, as we both know that upon your return you will still have nothing intelligent to share. Except for incoherent diversionary gibberish, oh you've got scads of that!
