    Quote Originally Posted by metreon View Post
    The post Goshin ridiculed was probably making an obscure (read: poorly worded) reference to the early days of the Catholic church, however even then the Church was not that indiscriminate with righteous reprisal. If one was a believer, one willingly paid for tithes and indulgences and was embraced lovingly (or at least indifferently) by the Church. If a person was a nonbeliever, they might be labelled a heretic and then they could murdered and their property seized. Wasn't that in part the rationale of the Crusades?

    Of course, he could have also been speaking more broadly, since the similar violent lust for money and/or power is evident in any historic "holy" war. Religion is often the guise of politics, and sometimes very poor one. Henry VIII looted monasteries and probably used the immense wealth gathered violently from that "reformation" of the Church to fund later military exploits, like the second conquest of Ireland. Many heads have worn the veil of theology, but beneath its curtain, many eyes have also gleamed with greed.

    And many churches today still seem to retain their interest in power and money, even if their power mongering today is nonviolent, by means of politicking alone. Modern televangelists are a cliche for this new, domesticated version of the same historical lust, as they are always praying upon their audiences for money. (pun intended).

    I suspect his concern, however inarticulate, was to emphasize, that despite the firm grip rationality has over many developed societies today, we are still the same breed of people that once willingly sanctified brutal violence with the righteous conviction. And for many others, righteous intolerance is simply the mask they wear for other purposes. And it could happen again, at any time, anywhere.
    This post was well put..thanks for clearing that up for me.

    Prove he was a murderer. You keep making the accusation, and that he only got away with it on technicalities. Since you know so much about it, you should be able to prove it.

    We just had this discussion on another thread that expended well beyond it's 100page/1,000post limit in a day and a half, and you're STILL demanding evidence?

    I guess I would first have to come out and accuse him of being guilty under the law before I went on to prove that claim under that law.

    I haven't, you seem to have missed that minor detail.

    Actually, what you just said is completely absurd. Please do not go into business as a mind reader...you're really bad at it.

    So we are back to the guy being not guilty of any crime, and you calling him a murderer and all that is just hyperbole.

    Just as a murderer who gets off on a technicality is "not guilty" of any crime under the law, yes.

    My decision, to change my own tolerance to zero, based on the assassination last Sunday, is my own, and I doubt we will ever be in the same room. That said, you can roll around this website with all the bravado you like, but then, this is just typing, and nothing like heat of the moment public speaking in a room of live people. I have embarassed people before by crushing them in public, and it usually made me feel quite bad to hurt a person's ego, or their sense of self worth. I have a genius level IQ, and I recognize the advantage this gives me over most folks, and in light of that, I try never to hurt another person's mind, on purpose. With last Sunday's assassination, that policy is revised, and folks mouthing pro-life voting within my hearing, will be directly challenged and unless challenge elicits recantment, of this intent to deny my religious liberty, the humiliation and denigration is ON.

    But you still have not shown any evidence, period, that he is either a murderer, or got off on a technicality. You are just making it up.
